In the News A few months ago, I wrote an article about comments, in which I said, among others things, that Twitter can never replace comments because not only is it effectively a one-to-one communication channel, Twitter messages are also far too short to foster any form of coherent conversation. Over the weekend, a silly link-bait story illustrated my point perfectly.

I'd just be happy if transmission could be trusted. I've lost count the number of times an sms has been recieved hours or days after I've sent it. A dropped email is unheard of but dropped or delayed sms.. all the time.. wtf is that?

All phones I ever owned have had a setting to be notified when the message reaches its receiver. I do not use it, but has noticed the setting is there. I have not upgraded to what is currently considered a smartphone, though, and wouldn't be too surprised if they lacked this feature. (I'm pretty sure my phone was markeded as a smartphone before iOS and Android arrived, but whatever.)
