As mentioned before and growled at somewhat frequently, iPhones don't have cut and paste and copy... so imagine this scenario....
Your sister sees something in Chicago that makes her almost piss herself and of course, she thinks of YOU, so she snaps a quick (and maybe not so high-res) photo of said object and xaps it to you thru the ether-web .... and then she waits.
And then, a couple of days later, now peeved instead of positively doubled over in hysterics, asks you ever-so-sweetly (which is a bad sign, right there) if you received her photo of the "blobbity Blob Blah" ????
You look at your iPhone, and yeah, there's this weird Text Message you hadn't bothered to read cuz it comes over like a spam email at first and you weren't sure WTF it was really trying to tell you until now.... ((whoooo-hooooo! everyone wants to communicate on a 1 and a quarter inch screen all of their deepest most immediate thought, yo!) but this is how the scenario plays out:
1. first you get a TEXT MESSAGE (that you are CHARGED for )
saying you have a "multi-media message" that is available
at this url: www.viewmymessage,.com
2., for which you have to provide this user name: GLDKOCOIRJ37395 or something just as obtuse cuz honestly there are no humans here, nope not us p[please go back to trying to figure out how your bluetooth headset is sucking your brains cuz we certainly aren't using ours]
... no, not us
3. and this password: Blahblah09834blah only it's in tiny tiny little type that you can't increase the size of, and honestly like you would ever remember these numbers and letters in this configuration?
that is the idea after all.... to make it a PAIN in the ARSE!
ie: utterly useless until you are near your computer... which could be days and days... and in my case, was 4 days and then my iPhone was DEAD and there is no accessing what was sent on it ... argghhhh! Until i replaced a charger and then ... this is what I got:
The message is only good for 7 days. By then the joke is over, the kitten is a cat, and your boyfriend and you have already either broken up or gotten married and divorced or you found him wearing your underwear and you have gone shopping .... a lot can happen in a week.
Or 28 years....http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080703/en_nm/britain_curtis_dc_1
Or 23 years. Ian Curtis was only 23 years old when he hung himself.
