78 million SMS Votes for American Idol

AT&T announced yesterday that "the company has shattered its text messaging record of 64.5 million by generating more than 78 million messages this season of 'American Idol' -- the most popular show on television."

My family contributed substantially to that total. Thank heavens for unlimited text message plans!

So, at least for now, SMS is still the reigning "killer application" for mobile telephony.

About

Discovering Identity was founded on blogs.sun.com in May 2005 as a means of documenting my exploration of the field of Identity and Access Management. In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.

Thanks for stopping by.
