I'm a techno dinosaur.  All I have is a desktop computer and a landline phone.  Oh, and a DVD player built into my TV because it came that way. I wouldn't know how to text or use a cell phone and just have no desire to learn.

Hell no. If I couldn't text, I'd probably die. HAHA I send 10,000+ texts a month. Now the majority of those are to my best friend. Texting is how we talk to each other. I live in Philadelphia and she lives in Los Angeles, so when we talk, it's via text. We can talk that way for hours, cause we're not tied to the phone and can respond to the text when you get the time.

First..I don't have a cell phone or any other device that does texting..I never even "texted" before so I can easily continue to do without it until the day I die.

Secondly I do not think we are becomming any more connected or disconnected; this seems to have become another term to scare the people into thinking, once more, that our society is going to crumble because of the devices we have.

Not any different that people in earlier times whining about how society was going to disappear because of the advent of movies and records.

I had survived many horrible years without it, I am sure I could manage without it once again.

I have noticed its younger adults that text a lot more then older ones, naturally because we know what land lines were . However, some adult text a lot just like some young adults might not , the ones that you see texting and walking into " fountains" or " off the rail track" well they are just ignorant and deserved to walk into something . It is common sense to watch where you are going , does not mean it is an epidemic , just that some people are to dumb to look while walking those are the few that really deserve to walk into " fountains " and off the rail. :)

Texting is made worse because of my current phone.   It doesn't have a full keyboard.  Each button might represent 3 letters.  The software "guesses" what I'm trying to say but usually does a bad job of it, and I have to keep erasing what it adds.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

never have texted, hopefully never will My cell is forbidden from sending and receiving texts,  E-mails on the other hand are a whole different ball of wax altogether.
