The Cell Phone and the SMS ....


We communicate because we want others to know or to get the message[s]. I use the English language to blog because I communicate much easier in this language, the language the I was taught in my schools days during the colonial era.. I did not blog in the Malay language for the simple reason that its get limited audience.. Writing in English, the global language today, my blog is understood by most people across the globe... Since I start to blog some three years ago, I am indeed happy that people who visited my blog do in a way enjoy reading my thoughts..

With the advance in technology, communication had been made easy by the inventions of new tools like the internet and the cell phone.. With the cell phone a new mean of communication has evolved in what we now call the SMS or MMS. .I believe today we are comfortable to communicate via the SMS that we could do using our cell phone... When we want to share joke, we sent it via SMS and when we want to communicate messages that are not that urgent or business cards, we just sent it using an SMS.. In using SMS we have created over times a new vocabularies that might look Greek to those of us who had never use SMS.. We write 4 U 2 C when using SMS to mean For you to See or we just say BTW to mean By the way.. We us symbol like (:-(: or :(] in our message to add humor to the message. And among peer group we create special code to mean whatever the group want it to means... Because of the SMS, the vocabulary we use has change from the real spelling according to the dictionary to a short vocabulary that we create over times as we go along using SMS like we use 'r' for are, we use 'd' for the, we use 4 to mean for, we use 2 to mean to and to say tomorrow we just write 2moro, we use 'n' to mean and, when we write we hv 2 miss d pati to mean we have to missed the party and so on. Someone somewhere would create a new SMS vocabulary and symbol to send meaning over the cell phone using SMS... And my dear friends it is fun and we do get the message across without much fuss.. Now that we could us MMS, we could send images as well with our SMS and this add a new dimension to the way we communicate using the cell phone, other then using our voice like we normally do when speaking over the phone.

Well friends our world has progress fast and for us who live during this period of our history we are seeing changes in the way we communicate over the telephone that we had never dream it would be possible. But because of the ingenuity of our scientists and technologies we are now provided with a new tools...The cell phone, an invention of our time, that have transformed our life forever and with that making life as beautiful as ever... Thus the Cell Phone has today became an extension of ourselves... We now just could not leave home without it...Have a nice day.
