Word of the Day: Phreaker
What I think it means: This one’s a weird one that I’ve never heard before in my life. The spelling sounds like a mixture of freak and beaker, but I’m sure it has nothing to do with that. My guess would be it’s some sort of slang for a club kid…or a lightbulb.
What it actually means: One who gains illegal access to the telephone system. Hunh, interesting. Apparently the ph- beginning refers to the phone. And I guess the -eaker could refer to breaker, or the -ker reminds me a bit of hacker. I highly doubt I’ll use this word though.
