Along with paying for porn and most human interaction, one of the many things that the Internet long ago made obsolete is the phone book. And yet the phone book people — officially, the Yellow Pages Association — just keep making them and leaving them in large piles on our front steps and in our lobbies to be ignored until someone more enterprising than ourselves decides to toss them all in the trash. But it seems as though the YPA has finally accepted that there is zero demand for their product, because they're graciously allowing us to opt out. Of course, they're not making it easy — you have to register on their website, yellowpagesoptout.com. [Gizmodo]
