First, Jon Fingas on how robocalls may disappear:
The FCC’s quest to kill robocalls is moving forward. The regulator has voted for a ruling that explicitly lets phone carriers block robocalls by default. They’ll have to use “reasonable” call data to make the decision, inform customers of the practice and provide an opportunity to opt out.
Yeah, I’m sure I’ll opt out to not receive robocalls.
Second, Brian Merchant on robots coming after jobs:
“the robots are coming” is not just a smokescreen for management to disappear behind. Sometimes, it’s an outright sales pitch issued by those most eager to see the robots en route.
