Deal will allow PC, phone messaging

Vodafone Group and Microsoft Corp. said they will start a service that for the first time allows mobile-phone and personal-computer users to exchange instant messages.
emphasis mine

Wow, are they allowed to just lie like that? I know I've been able to do this on my phone for a couple of years at least with Yahoo, and I'm pretty sure there's AIM services that will do the same thing. Maybe they meant this is the first time Vodafone and/or MSN users can exchange messages, but that's not what it says.

For the first time? I'm with you in thinking "um, what the f are you talking about?"

I have AIM on my cell phone and works just like if I was on a PC. It's real time and it works unbelievably well. I also have Yahoo IM on it too. Was this article published two years after it was written?

I have no idea, makes no sense. Maybe their press releases are written by the White House.

Bush personally wrote that one. He also announced the invention of the letter "c" and the thumbtack last week.

Yeah, and I heard they're working on re-inventing the wheel.

You must get a lot of traffic with a blog this nice! I'll be back for sure. Hey, look at my site over here: instant language messaging. As you can tell, it has to do with instant language messaging! I trust your judgment. What do you think?
