Uzebox / bluebox

Post by danboid » Sun Jun 21, 2020 10:01 am

I was wondering if bluebox(ing) was any influence on the choice of name for the console? I had incorrectly typed 'uebox' into a search engine and one of the suggested searches was bluebox.

Unfortunately I had no idea about blueboxing until long after I had stopped using dial-up. I wish I had had naughtier friends - all the money I could've saved!

My guess is no, but only Alec would know(never heard him mention it). Phreaking is pretty interesting....a simpler time where playing around like that wouldn't necessarily end up with a life sentence!

The name was not influenced by bluebox but by the original XBox which I have fondle memories of playing Halo with friends for nights and nights. Simple as that. :)
