Hannah keeps track of her financial situation with an SMS bank statement each week, and now I read that they're using SMS for parking reminders in Sydney! So, SMS is coming of age. This report suggests that one in five of the 30bn text messages we'll send this year will be about business. But it's a little condescending to be told Text messages don't replace real conversations, and are not always appropriate - ah, right thanks, I'll try and remember that next time I'm doing business. As the mobile phone becomes more respectable then data theft seems to become more of a concern. If you're at all worried, what about a mobile phone pouch AKA a cloaking device (was that a Romulan cloaking device, trekkies?). I looked, and my pouch was empty!
