pit doesn't take much to take a pday off. p>> since no one in power is paggressively cracking down on probo calls, u mail has created a pnovel tool that relies on three pmusical notes. pumail thinks those tones could pbe the key to beating robo pcallers. phere is how. pumail offers a free service that preplaces ordinary voicemail. pwhen it detects a black listed pnumber calling your phone, it pdid something simple. pit cons the con man with a pmessage tailor made for them. p>> that robo caller will hear pthis. pat that point, they say, hey, pthis number is probably not pgood. pi'm not going to call it panymore. p>> for the moment, supply pvoicemail might outwit the pcaller but people like graham
