AT&T Offers Instant Messaging
I'm really glad that Brian at bbspot.com decided to quit his day job and run the site full time, as he's putting out some great content (and remember, folks, this site is SATIRICAL...if you don't have a sense of humor, go away).
A great one from the last week, AT&T Offers Instant Messaging. Granted, it wasn't written by Brian, but still funny as heck. From the article:
In Larsen's demonstration, he explained that each user is given a unique phone id or "number". This is fairly standard in the IM world. This number can then be keyed into a telephone to initiate contact with another user. What's revolutionary about AT&T's TIM application, according to Larsen, is that the users will not be limited to communicating by typing. The user's voice is "streamed" over the telephone line in "real-time."
