Re: My journey into the 21st century
I actually like texting...much preferred over voice mail.
Kind of got used to it when that was the ONLY WAY to make contact with family and friends after Katrina.
Tho I send/receive only dozens in a month rather than hundreds, and I don't use a lot of the shorthand. During a busy day, I'd rather text someone "dinner tonight?" or "i'm running late" than leave a voice mail. Even "call me" rather than leaving voice mail.
I use it sort of like a portable email, I guess.
I have NO INTEREST in getting a GPS device. I like using maps/mapquest/google maps, etc.
