From my friend Farrell today (sent from his Blackberry):
R top story 4 2day, Txt msgs r 15 yrs old
Actually, the news was broken in the International Herald Tribune this morning.
I send text messages, both IM and on my cellphone. I’m not quite sure why? Speaking seems much more versatile. Stef, on the other hand, ‘texts’ on a constant basis.
What I can’t figure out is, how can the cellphone companies get away with charging what they charge for messaging plans? A text message uses so many fewer resources yet is billed at a premium to a voice call.
