...the new telegram.
I joined the revolution last year and finally started texting. This all happened when Jake got a phone. It was an easier and cheaper way to communicate with him. Telecommunications have definitely improved throughout the years--telegram, telephone, email, cell phones. But now it seems that texting is the most popular means of communication. I've heard that some from the younger generation don't even use email (gasp!). With the popularity of cell phones, the home phone is definitely phasing out. In fact, I have plans to get rid of ours this summer. But, still, I can't help thinking that we are regressing a bit by using texting so much. And, I don't think it's going to improve anyone's spelling or grammar.
