A free spam filter for your phone

I just ran across this: You can say goodbye to annoying automated robocalls -

Nomorobo is a cloud-based solution that uses the “simultaneous ring” service (provided by some phone carriers) that allows numerous phone lines with the same number to ring at the same time.

Sign up for the service and all of your calls also go to Nomorobo. If the call is tagged as a robocall, the computer hangs up on it before you get the second ring.
Unfortunately for me, it doesn't work for my carrier - at least not yet...
Nomorobo is currently available to people who have VoiP service with AT&T U-verse, Cablevision Optimum, SureWest, Verizon FiOS and Vonage. Foss started with these companies because they make it easy for people to get the simultaneous ring feature. He hopes to add traditional landline phone companies in the near future.

AT&T cell and Ooma voip phones = no worky yet. Darn easy to sign up though, and gives the NSA much easier access. (tongue in cheek)
