Cubicle dwellers know that phone privacy is in short supply while you're at work. Whether it's co-workers overhearing your personal chats or you learning all of the intimate details of your neighbor's current domestic dispute, the bottom line is those chest-high movable walls don't block voices too well. Wandering phone conversations have always just been something you have to get used to in offices — until now. Babble is a little device that hooks up to your phone and then replicates the sound and tone of your voice to create a jumble of sound that masks whatever you're talking about. Rather than your private conversations, cubicle neighbors will heat what sounds like a small group of people talking and will be unable to distinguish specific words. Of course, with all the recent press about government wiretapping going around we wouldn't say you're totally safe to talk about whatever you want, but at least you know you'll have privacy from those co-workers who know you best. Babble is available now for about $400.
