"In the 1970s, Draper used a toy whistle found in Cap'n Crunch
cereal to hack phone lines and make calls. Draper realized the
whistle produced the exact tone necessary to signal that an active
call on a phone line had ended—2600 Hz, to be
precise—when in fact it had not, thus allowing the call to
continue even after the exchange thought it had ended."
