Spam Cube Block Spam and Phishing at Home
The launch of Spam Cube gives everyday personal computer users a new tool in the battle against unwanted email. The device protects up to four home computers with its anti-spam technology.

Four inches tall and weighing in at eight ounces, the Spam Cube requires simple plug-it-in installation, according to the company.

Consumers typically have to pay monthly or annual fees for spam-blocking, but since the Spam Cube has patented built-in anti-spam technology there is no subscription cost to stop spam with the Spam Cube. And the device adapts to all computers, Mac or PC, and works with all routers, wired or wireless.

Spam's difficult to recognize and is similar to the trend taking place in the regular mail market. Advertisers disguise mail as checks or important documents, with phrases like "open immediately" and "time sensitive material." Spam content is hard to stop because sender addresses are often fabricated, and even when they're not fake, they're easy to change.

The company offers an optional service called Security OnDemand, which deletes email viruses from inboxes and alerts users whenever they receive a fraudulent email. For an annual fee of US$52, Security OnDemand provides McAfee and Symantec Norton anti-virus, and Spam Cube's anti-phishing technology.

The box is priced at US$150.
