We're used to seeing a bit of plug-and-play hardware firewall protection, but spam and virus protection usually takes some fiddling around with software and a bit of our precious computerly resources. Well, Spam Cube hopes bring the hurt on spam, viruses (email ones at least), and phishing with a new box that stands between you and your broadband modem, flagging or deleting email messages before they get to your Mac or PC's mail program. Spam protection is free, but for the "Security OnDemand" services you'll have to fork over $52 a year. The Spam Cube goes for $150, comes in many colors (hows about a blue/yellow and pink edition?), and should be available in a month or so.
