A taste of SPAM to come?

Thought you'd seen it all? SPAM in the form of embedded images, PDF documents, simple email text – yep, we've seen all that but wait, there's more!

Check out this article in the online NY Times this afternoon about the next wave of SPAM – audio and possibly video!

What's really bad about this is the increasing size of the SPAM messages – most of the crud I see in my SPAM folder today is about 5-7 KB – if audio SPAM catches hold, the size could increase 10x – a sizeable increase in the resources that are wasted by Spammers.
