Not one to usually blow the trumpet of my beloved employer, telstra has just released this new product with is just too neat for me to not share with you.
We've had this as a corporate tool for AGES, but it's now released as a consumer product, for everyone to use.
You can send SMS messages from your PC. The cost is the same as texting from your mobile, but you can type away much faster, no unfortunate predictive text errors (my sister in law "Brooke" is always being referred to as "Arnold"), send to multiple numbers much quicker and it's just super neato.
Here's the link to install it on your desktop. Installation is free.
Telstra Online Text Buddy (for consumers):
No idea if other networks offer a similar service, but I'm sure if Telstra kicks it off, the others won't be too far behind.
PS - I'm not Spamming, I really think this is cool and wanted to share.
