It is important to note that these systems will NOT stop robocalls. That’s non-trivial in the VOIP era when those calls can come from anywhere, most of which don’t care what laws the US passes.What it will do is allow you to see when someone is spoofing the caller ID. Those calls can be ignored. It’s definitely better than nothing, and hopefully it will reduce the cost benefit ratio to the point where it’s not worth doing. But the cynic in me thinks the typical marks for these scams will be happy to take any call and any excuse as to why the caller is says THIS IS SPOOFED.
"Each speaker is able to connect to up to two sources at the same time, though pair with eight overall."
Can you be more specific as to exactly what this means?
I want to be able to play from my phone, my wife's phone or the iPad.
I've been burned by speakers that only paired with a single device at a time and was annoying to re-pair. Something that "just works" is something I'd buy.
No amount of 3rd party data is ever going to match Google unless someone starts and PoI database to rival it. Google can crawl the web for a first-pass and then get updates, something no one else is doing (Bing?).A simple example: There are about four Tim Horten's within two miles of my house. Maps knows only two of them. This is not good enough.
