"Money to me is freedom, and freedom is essential. Money allows me to say that I will now devote my life to being me, rather than putting on my shoes and tie, and going to an office every day."
- Robert Silverberg

Telepathic Transmitter (Telep-transmitter)  
  A device using living alien tissue to transmit your thoughts.  

It's not easy to keep the memories straight in the story; fortunately, the police can read your thoughts.

"You remember," the policeman said, "your trip to Mars. We know all your actions today and all your thoughts - in particular your very important thoughts on the trip home from Rekal, Incorporated." He explained, "We have a telep-transmitter wired within your skull; it keeps us constantly informed."

A telepathic transmitter; use of a living plasma that had been discovered on Luna. He shuddered with self-aversion. The thing lived inside him, within his own brain, feeding, listening, feeding. But the Interplan police used them; that had come out even in the homeopapes. So this was probably true, dismal as it was.

From We Can Remember It For You Wholesale, by Philip K. Dick.
Published by Fantasy and SF in 1966

Dick was fascinated with the idea of using a living creature as part of a device that connected with the mind; see his thoughts on the swibble from his 1955 story Service Call.
