AT&T, Apple, Google To Work On 'Robocall' Crackdown

Holy crap! It's about damn time something is being done about this. I think they should take things a step further and throw robocallers in jail. How hard would it be to track them down?

More than 30 major technology and communication companies said on Friday they are joining the U.S. government to crack down on "robocalls," automated, prerecorded phone calls that regulators have labeled a "scourge." The strike force will report to the FCC by Oct. 19 on "concrete plans to accelerate the development and adoption of new tools and solutions," said AT&T Chief Executive Officer Randall Stephenson, chairman of the group.
