Yesterday just before dinner, Tod's cell phone rang. "I got spammed on my phone," he said, looking at the message and turning the phone towards me and our friend, Brendan.

Tod's NTT i-mode phone allows people to send e-mail and text messages (like a pager, remember those?), as well as voice mail and regular phone calls.

This message was all in Japanese. I read the first few kanji then gave up and handed it to Brendan who read the full thing. "It's a phone sex service," he declared. "Ra-bu Me-ru. Love Mail."

Today NTT announced that they will hook up with AOL to offer online e-mail. More spam to come.
