First of all, I’ve never text-messaged anyone or anything. I don’t know if my phone can do it, and even if it did, I wouldn’t know how to do it.
Now, I’m not SCARED of new technology. I can see the use in cell phones, palm pilots, the Ipods, and to a degree even camera phones.
But, I don’t get text messaging AT ALL.
It seems to only be used for voting on American Idol, or voting “should they go for it on 4th down?”
Even the commercials don’t make it seem useful for anything. They’ll show a guy messaging a girl Lunch? during a business meeting, or – of all things – Hello from across a bar.
So, what’s the deal with it?
I could imagine being in high school and text-messaging my friend, “Julie’s smuggling peas,” but that’s about as far as my imagination extends.
Also, do you call it “TM-ing”, as in “Hey, TM me”?
