Revenge Against Telemarketers

I just ran across this neat little gadget...and although it's a bit of a stretch from the usual fare on this blog....it was just too cool not to share with the faithful.

What is it?

Just call it "The 'Telecrapper 2000".

Engadget has a heads up article on this latest innovation in the war against telemarketers.....well worth reading. The Telecrapper 2000 is an automated system that detects incoming telemarketer calls, and then wastes the caller's time by playing recorded affirmations when the pitchman/woman stops speaking. The goal is to waste so much time, it makes such calling techniques unprofitable.

Cool idea....and must be hilarious to watch (er listen to) in action.
