Sending text message is more expensive than downloading data from hubble.

    Keeps the current tween generation from becoming intelligent and ensures my generations safety from being overthrown

    Beat me to it.

    You know, it's kind of sad that I text a lot more than I actually talk on the phone. I'm sure it saves more time calling the person than sitting there tapping away at the buttons. We're going to get more antisocial as each generation goes by.

    Eh.

    I used to be pretty anti-texting, but it has its uses. Transmission and receipt of information without the inconvenience of the fixed structure of an actual phone call.

    Plus, it's the only way I'm capable of flirtatious behavior without feeling/looking like an idiot.

    We have a device that can instantly transmit sound over great distances, so we're going to type, instead? I bet the next big thing will a way to transmit morse code, over a wire....

    I have no problem with texting, however I will not have a drawn out conversation that way. In my minds eye if it takes more than 2 messages you should just make a call.

    I text way more than I call people. That's why I switched to a PDA. Mobile internet, 4GB MP3 player, portable NES, IM device, turn-by-turn navigation tool (which apparently works everywhere except Lower Bumble, PA), data processor, jump drive... oh, and it's also got a phone.

    That's messed up.


    Another one is XBox live. It's much cheaper keeping in touch with people from other states & countries than on the damn phone. Plus it has the optional video
