More text message tips

I could hardly watch the Democratic presidential debate earlier tonight for all the texting and phone calling I was making and receiving throughout the whole thing.

But it did remind me of this interesting story I recently ran across about text messaging privacy, written in light of the controversy surrounding Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and his chief of staff Christine Beatty.

Of course, I’ve already talked about that on here. However, this story gave some interesting, useful information that even I wasn’t aware of.

Like the fact that basically anyone out there can easily intercept your text messages using an inexpensive radio kit or even creating their own similar devise.

As for the tips, they gave some of the no-brainers, like “Don’t ever text personal information such as your PIN number, password or banking info to anyone.” (Gee, you think?)

But, then there were some tips that were new to me, like this one: “Those concerned about privacy can send anonymous text messages with services like AnonTxt.com.”

Anyway, you can check out all the tips for yourself. Or do you even care? Is text messaging privacy something you ever think about?

Thanks for the information about privacy of text messages. I knew not to send obviously private information such as financial info, but I didn't know that products were readily available to intercept texts. Makes me wonder ...

And, anonymous text messages? Goodness. I'm sure those can be put to misuse in plenty of ways. Makes me wonder ...

Exactly Stephanie! It really does make you wonder. I mean who takes time to go through all of that trouble? Is it even worth it?

Elizabeth said...

I think of text messages just like emails. You may have an intended person you're sending them too but it doesn't mean that email doesn't make a couple of stops along the way.

You put it in writing then it's out there!!!

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
