12:45 PM -- Verizon Wireless sent us these figures on how many text messages their subscribers broadcast over the holiday season:

    Verizon Wireless processed about 1.6 billion text messages on New Year's Eve. (20 percent higher than an average Wed. in December 2008).

    Verizon Wireless processed nearly 1.6 billion text messages on New Year's Day. (20 percent higher than an average Thurs. in December 2008).

    Christmas Day 2008: 1.7 billion text messages sent and received.


If email has replaced the written letter, does this make text messaging the modern-day greeting card?
