Wonder what to get your significant other? How about a few for friends of Bill?

IZMIR, Turkey (Reuters) - Washing your hair, working late, flooded kitchen -- all these excuses may be a thing of the past if a lie-detecting telephone on sale in Turkey takes off.

``This is a phone that enables you to tell if someone is telling the truth or not on the other end of the line,'' said Tulay Ispirli, manager of a shop called Vakkorama in the western city of Izmir which is selling the phones for $159 each.

The phone has an electronic device which notes changes in frequency that the ear cannot discern.

A red flight flashes if the person is lying, a yellow light means you should take their words with a pinch or salt, and a green light means you can believe what you hear.

Ispirli said there had been a lot of interest in the lie-detector phone, though at first customers were doubtful about the phone's abilities. ``But once they try it they enjoy it,'' she told Reuters Television. <BR>

I don't need one of those. If I'm on the phone with my ex and she's talking, I can assume the red-light. In fact, she'd burn the red light out if I spent any amount of time on the phone with her.
