Only it turns out that there wasn't a big story, merely a dumb spam message promoting a crappy stock. This seems to be happening more frequently lately. A couple of years ago I'd get SMS spam once in a blue moon; now it is probably up to twice a month. It's still nothing to worry about, but I'm even less keen on having my phone inbox crammed with spam than I am my laptop.
Anyhow, I'm curious if readers have noticed a small but steady increase in mobile spam as well. I can't tell yet if it's a trend or just my luck.
