I think it’s time that we discuss a very important issue here, readers. That issue is SMS text marketing. SMS, of course, stands for Short Message Service, and it’s all the rage right now among everyone from prepubescent Justin Bieber fans to spineless 20-30 something year old men who would rather send a text message than take the risk of saying something unplanned in an actual phone conversation (who might also be guilty of Justin Bieber fandom).
You see, as we move further and further toward the singularity, and cyborg nation, our phones will leave our hands much less frequently. And, what better way for companies to market to us than to send SMS text marketing straight to said phones? That way, in between feeble attempts at gaining female companionship for the weekend, a guy like me can also get the latest deals on whatever consumer products have been determined to be within the confines of my demographic. Straight to my phone! Isn’t that great? I hope so. Because, I’m convinced it’s either great or a sign of the coming zombie apocalypse…Or was it a cyborg apocalypse? Either way, the future might be kind of grim. Save us SMS text messages.
