Sharp Fax Combats Malicious Phone Calls By Recording Them
I'm not sure how useful this is. After all, who makes a voice call to a fax number, unless by mistake, in which case when you hear the annoying fax noise, you hang up.
Nevertheless, Nikkei Net reports that Sharp Corp will launch a fax machine that can record phone conversations for 45 seconds and play them back, for people who fear receiving obscene or other types of malicious calls.
"The latest addition to the "fappy" line of fax machines is designed to continually store phone conversations in a RAM (random-access memory) chip and then erase them." fappy?
