Texting to a number using a T9 pad is going away. Meanwhile, TXT and IM are identical in use and content. The texting lifestyle has not gone away.

Beer It's What's For Dinner: cig-mkr: You mean I should give this up?
[www.johnytech.com image 338x250]

Aww, I had one of those once. My girlfriend at the time used to page me clever things like 5318008. Then she came out as a lesbian, so it makes a lot more sense in hindsight.

Been a while and it took a minute but I got it.

I use my laptop and Google Voice for SMS. Nice not to have to switch devices. Big keyboard, fewer typos.

Wait, so SMS messaging is being overtaken by instant messaging. A service that is older than text messaging? And yet the Daily Fail calls it new?

Is it just me, or the Daily Fail being unusually stupid today?
