With Siri helping iPhone users to communicate with the rest of the world, why not have a similar programme to act as your gatekeeper from the rest of the world?
whyPhone is a siri-like programme which interrogates incoming calls to weed out life insurance salesmen, debt collectors or elderly aunts,
depending on who you were trying to avoid.

"The bank, Frances second largest, has said Kerviel acted on his own" [normzone, Jun 04 2012]
||As one of my primary tasks in helping with the family
business is answering the phone all day, I need this like you
wouldn't believe. You must create it for me. I will rob the
second-largest bank in France using only a ball-point pen
to fund your company's start-up.
||Blast! Now I'm forced to go with the Monaco plan! Where in

Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane on such short notice?
