VoIP Graduates, Becomes Part Of Spam

You know something is hot when it starts becoming the subject of spam. Amongst the daily come-ons for performance-enhancement drugs and money from Nigeria came a new pitch today: Someone offering a way for me to resell "the hottest VoIP phones," or something like that.

Now, I know it's cheap to become a VoIP provider, but how the heck are you going to make money recruiting resellers when the service is already being offered at razor-thin margins? Beware, buzzword watchers. You're not going to get rich selling VoIP, unless you already work for an established provider. Interesting, though, to see how trendy themes work their way into spam.

Got Security?

Lots of news today on the TechWeb main page about security (we've imported a couple of them here
-- and here -- to make 'em easier to find), and if your enterprise's plans aren't up to date, it's never too late to start.

From where we sit, a lot of firms still seem to be behind the curve in security education and planning. It's easy to blame users for clicking on email they shouldn't be opening (see above item, f'rinstance), but if companies don't regularly update and educate their users, who is the real culprit?
