The cruel, cruel Demon Dialer
You may not know this, but I’m a big fan of the daily gadget podcast known as Daily Giz Wiz. It’s a show that covers the not-so-covered gadgets; you’ll hear about gadgets you never thought existed. Now, to end this little plug, let me just say that if you like this site and like a good laugh, check out the Daily Giz Wiz. I brought this up because, on a recent episode, they covered a gadget from the past, known as the Demon Dialer. Take a guess at its cruel, cruel purpose in life.
If you didn’t guess a device that could redial a certain number up to 25 times a minute (yes, minute!), you should’ve, as that’s exactly what the Demon Dialer does. Granted, there are real reasons to use this device, but the malicious ones come to mind a lot quicker. This device was used when you would call some big company and often get the busy signal, so the Demon Dialer would simply keep calling until you got through. At that point, it would alert you so that you’d pick up the phone and start yalking. Although the Demon Dialer has been discontinued, there’s a product known as the PowerDialer that’s exactly like it– it keeps calling until it gets through.
If you really want the modern-day Demon Dialer, it’s going to cost you $250. I’d rather just wait the 10 minutes it takes to get through, especially when it means saving $250.
