I second the love for texting, so convenient and unobtrusive, it's email on the go

No because 99% of all other offices still are hardwired and accept faxes. Until someone figures out a better mousetrap for wireless and a standard in electronic signing that neutralizes the need for faxing they will stick around.

As to faxing, our office gets far more faxes than it used to. Now documents are printed on one end, signed, then the signed document scanned and pdf'd by email. I would say we get about ~25% of the faxes we got 2 years ago.

hardwiring is still nice.. virtually no interference, typically faster, much more secure from outside the network, etc

This girl last night was telling me I need to get a new phone for me and my wife so we could text. I told her I purchased the phones we had so we could not text. She was then trying to explain how texting was so much better then actually talking to the person. I was just thinking if I had to talk to her all the time I would agree texting would be better. Not sure why people find it so hard to pick up a phone and actually have a conversation now days. Except when it comes to people like her.
wtf.. how hard did you have to search to find phones with no texting?

did you get a child's version? jitterbug?

Meh, paper maps are still damn handy in the case of having no access to electricity or if you're like me and just love looking at maps.
