>From Slashdot:

"On Friday, the controversy surrounding Anonabox reached its zenith
with Kickstarter officially canceling the project's funding campaign.
Anonabox began with a modest goal of $7,500, but quickly reached its
goal 82 times over. Then funders and interested parties began to
scrutinize the project's claims, and that's when the project ran into
trouble. From hardware that wasn't actually custom-made to software
that didn't actually fulfill promises of privacy-focused routing on
the internet, the facts regarding Anonabox proved that it was in
blatant violation of Kickstarter's rules against false advertising.
This project clearly failed, but if the support it initially garnered
is any indication, the public is hungry for easy-to-use technology
that encrypts and anonymizes all personal internet traffic."
