  • Paper: Sexting really isn't a big deal, won't ruin teens' lives

    We’ve all heard of “sexting,” when teens send nude photos of themselves to each other via text message (well, MMS). Schools don’t like it, parents don’t like it, but, apparently, it’s all the rage among young people these days. Well, it turns out that sexting really isn’t that big of a deal; it’s merely a continuation of the age-old tradition… Read More

  • MMS coming to iPhone 3G!!! OMG! WOW! *

    MMS is coming to the iPhone 3G! Buy stock in Apple! * Note: 3G only available in Finland and on the Telia network. This post does not in any way imply that Apple and/or AT&T will offer MMS support in the United States. This application only works on Telia’s network and it should not be suggested by the tone or wording of this post that you should be excited by the prospect of MMS… Read More

  • iPhone 3G could have MMS


    An internal AT&T memo states that the iPhone 3G supports MMS. This is all conjecture but interestingly enough all of the plans offered by AT&T make no mention of MMS or even text limits, which means, in a roundabout way, they’re hiding something. Does anyone use MMS anyway? Read More

  • Cell stalker gets unlucky with MMS video, gets arrested

    Just because you’re unlucky doesn’t mean you’re inept with technology. Take, for example, this story. A woman goes to her local police station to complain that a creep was stalking her, calling and sending her phone videos of himself masturbating. This creep had bad luck, though, and actually sent her just such a video as she was in the police station making a statement. When… Read More

  • Put your photos on M&M's


    Mars is starting a new service called M&M Faces which will allow you to slap your mug on a bunch of M&Ms. The service follows M&M’s original My M&Ms service which allowed you to personalize your candies. Why you want faces on your M&M’s is anyone’s guess, but presumably you can get anything on there you want. Read More

  • Man sued by woman for sending nude pictures messages to phone she bought from him

    Working in retail is hard work, especially in the electronics field, but sometimes your interactions with people on a daily basis lead to new relationships. I worked at a big box retailer for about three years and got many dates out of it, though it wasn’t appropriate at all. The key is, though, to know when it’s OK and when it’s not OK to ask a customer on a date, and how to… Read More

  • AT&T raising SMS/MMS rates

    Yep, that’s right, folks. Starting March 30, 2008, your standard SMS rate will now be 20 cents and MMS rates will be 30 cents. If you’re on an all-you-can-eat plan then it doesn’t matter, but for those of you on an ala carte plan, you might want to consider switching plans. AT&T Raising SMS Rates [Phone News] Read More

    The new Sidekick Slide and Sidekick LX will be capable of sending MMS (images, audio, video, etc.) messages and doing so will be included with your plan, according to Joshua Karp over on BGR. These new models will be the first Sidekicks capable of sending MMS messages and any new customers will automatically get put on the new plan, but existing customers upgrading to the new phone will need… Read More

  • Verizon Pioneers MMS Uploading…NOT!!!

    Verizon may be able to call themselves the most reliable voice and data network in the country, but they’re certainly not the first to allow users to upload videos to YouTube via MMS. The fact that they’re releasing a press release touting such a feat is pretty ridiculous and embarrassing. Verizon, pay close attention to what I’m about to say. Helio was the first provider in… Read More

  • YouTube Mobile Launches


    YouTube just launched a new service optimized for mobile devices. A few days ago we mentioned how the Gen-5 Archos players are the only mobile devices to play flash vids smoothly. Maybe this will give Archie a run for its money. The new YouTube Mobile site is mostly xHTML and requires a pretty beefed up data plan, it also supports uploading videos via MMS for the three vBloggers out there. Read More

  • Those Chinese Love Them Some Texting

    If you thought your high school girlfriend sent a lot of SMSs, wait ’till you see what China is predicting. The Xinhua news agency said Monday that it expects over 14 billion text messages to be sent during the Lunar New Year. Keep in mind, this is just during one week! China Unicom and China Mobile have both adjusted their networks to compensate for the increase in traffic. Plus, with… Read More
