Three Blind Phreaks Speaking of hackers -- these guys aren't -- they're phreaks. Bad boys. But what an amazing story they are. Three brothers, born blind, and turning to phones and computers as a way of first filling curiousity, then surviving, and finally, for just doing it because it gave them power. They're not nice -- but they inspire admiration in even those that despise them. For years, the Badir brothers, Arabs, living in Israel, give the authorities a run for their money -- and took in a whole lot of cash with their illegal acts of phone and computer crime. Then one day, the law caught up to them.
