        That's the idea: take telephone/voice @  what? 4kbps? -- it was 
        something very narrow bandwidth so the phone companies could
        squueze more speech into each wire.  Anyway, given 4k or whatever
        bits/sec, built in a single chip into each new phone to compress
        and uncompress.  And up the quality of the speaker!
