Another preemtive strike in wireless world

While wireless carriers and phone manufacturers make inroads in security, an Arizona court has found a creative way to make inroads against text message spam.

Even in communist China, it is all about the profit

Funny that China is a communist country, and yet all I ever hear is how rich everyone over there is getting. Maybe it is the massive flow of capital leaving the US, or maybe it is just that spammers have opted out of wired email punishment, and gone directly to mobile spam.
