This isn't news. There was even a product page on Fark.com a long time ago that advertised a vibrator that ran off of the phone jack.

Remember when phones went BRRRRINNGGGGGG!??? It took a bit of juice to actuate those bell solenoids.
Related thought. It never ceases to amaze me that I can still dial the phone by jamming out morse code on the hook. Know what I'm talking about?
Well, it's not morse code exactly. It's just the number of flashes for the number you want to dial. 606 = six flashes -stop- ten flashes - stop- six flashes...
What's even more amazing is the POTS switching used to be entirely mechanical.
When I was a kid my parents didn't want me to have a phone in the bedroom for various reasons, and eventually their bedroom phone broke such that some of the numbers wouldn't dial, so they gave me that one so I could answer the phone when it rang.
I very quickly figured out the manual pulse-dialing trick.
Their reasons for not wanting me to have a phone in my room came to pass.

You can also put voltage down the line and make your neighbors phone ring and/or kill them.

Hacking got it's roots with fucking with other people's telephones for no reason.

This is the right way to teach people things in the modern era.
I discovered a secret way of "deriving" instantaneous velocity that mathematicians don't want you to know about!
cool trick: car batteries only have 3 more volts than a 9v battery. the next time your car battery dies, connect a jumper cables to your tongue to see if it's dead!
since, as everyone knows, voltage is the same thing as current

If you're dehydrated after some exercise or a hangover, you can use the same trick to recharge your electrolytes.
