Truecall: Stops Nuisance Phone Calls

Truecall: Stops Nuisance Phone Calls

trueCall will filter out nuisance phone calls from telemarketers and (better still) debt collectors.When someone calls, trueCall checks the number against a stored list of friends. If the number checks out, the call goes through. If not, it will ask the caller for their name and put them on hold while trueCall calls your phone. When you pick up, you can decide if you want to take the call, but by this stage most telemarketers hang-up. Reclaim your phone again!

Trongs. The name is goofy, they look goofy, and I would probably look goofy using them, but none of that compares to the goofiness of smearing your clothing with the wing sauce on your fingers.

Now I just need to remodel my bathroom to make way for the face recognition tap.

cara Says: May 8, 2009 at 11:34 am

i’m sorry, but any gadget that will effectively kill telemarketers is an automatic A++++ WOULD BUY AGAIN AND AGAIN for me.

tru Says: May 8, 2009 at 11:48 am

I would have thought the bacon thing would have been higher on the list. Of course, spy cams and phone call avoidance are eternally useful.

Gorillapod… Would make making Lego movies easier :)

Jerry D. Says: May 8, 2009 at 4:58 pm

J.Carey Says: May 8, 2009 at 7:16 pm

trueCall – can this be used with cell phones also?

Thyago Says: May 8, 2009 at 8:33 pm

Trongs is a must-have for restaurants.

Mike Says: May 8, 2009 at 9:31 pm

I go with the tap, simply because it takes a long time to get the water right. Plus checking email from the tub, who wouldn’t want that?

nicholas Says: May 9, 2009 at 2:02 am

has to be the bulldozer

Helard Says: May 9, 2009 at 3:22 am

I love to eat taking food with my fingers, the messy part is washing hands after wards. I think using this I would enjoy more.

Drew Says: May 9, 2009 at 9:30 am

Mmmmm, Bacon Genie. *drools*

Tim Says: May 9, 2009 at 10:48 am

The face recognition faucet system is really neat

Maxxx Says: May 9, 2009 at 8:46 pm

Gorrillapod- how many times could I have used that!

Jose Joaquin Says: May 10, 2009 at 4:31 pm

The best gadget is the face recognition tap (but I think that this tap will waste a lot of water, is better to have a shower instead of take a bath.

Jessica Says: May 10, 2009 at 5:34 pm

Necktie spycam. It makes me regret that ties aren’t part of the female professional dress code.

Jason Says: May 11, 2009 at 11:05 am

Baconnnn!
