01/07/2013 Storage of Text Messages

Text me. Wait, do not. Not anything too private anyway.

That is because if a new proposal is approved by the Senate, each and every SMS message you send will be stored in a digital archive by your phone provider. Why, you ask? It's all in the name of law enforcement being able to using your messages as evidence to catch bad guys and solve cases. And it's also a government-sponsored privacy nightmare come to reality.

If passed, the proposal would be the first major update to the 27-year-old Electronic Communications Privacy Act, and the latest in a string of blatant challenges to the Fourth Amendment, which served to protect citizens rights and information, unless law enforcement was granted a court-issued warrant.

But if this SMS-retention requirement makes it into law, the nearly 2.3 trillion text messages Americas 321.7 million wireless subscribers send in a year would all become the property of the Federal government, stored in a repository for 2 years.

12/30/2012 Text Messaging Losing to Social Media?

Text messaging may be going the way of the LP, and social media might be to blame for the decline in SMS in a more-connected-than-ever world.

Text messaging came to prominence in the early to mid-00s, as people realized they did not have to actually get on the phone to pass on a brief message to a friend, colleague or family member. Soon text messaging supplanted phone calls as the preferred method of communication between connected individuals, with the exception of a few texting abstainers who remained insistant that the process was confusing, annoying or inconvenient.
