R U In It 2 Win It? The World of Competitive Text Messaging

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 09:00:00 -0400

In 2010, the LG Mobile World Cup took place to determine the fastest texting pair in the world. Though not the first large scale competition over texting speed, the Mobile World Cup was the first international one of its kind. LG Electronics equipped one member of each pair with a phone with a QWERTY keyboard, while the other was given a phone with a numeric keypad. Competing in New York City for a total of $130,000 in prize money, thirteen pairs, each representing a different nation, faced off. 16-year-old Ha Mok-min and 17-year-old Bae Yeong-ho from South Korea texted the fastest, with the United States and Argentina coming in second and third, respectively.

Is Texting Keeping Teens Up at Night?

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 09:00:00 -0400

It is hardly news that teenagers aren't getting enough sleep--90% of teens get fewer than the eight to ten hours of sleep per night recommended for healthy development and function. A growing public health concern, sleep deprivation is particularly dangerous for youths, who rely on sleep for healthy mental and physical development. With teen sleep loss growing in public attention, and technology in a sense dominating the lives of young people, we must wonder if and how our devices play into this phenomenon.

How Text Messaging Has Changed the Deaf Community

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 09:00:00 -0400

Over one million U.S. residents are deaf or functionally deaf, and approximately 15% of the U.S. population above the age of 18 reports having some difficulty hearing. While many options are available to the deaf and hard of hearing to aid communication, more current and non-invasive techniques are always in demand.

Text messaging has been put to task in countless health outreach programs, cutting rates of smoking, bolstering medication compliance, and so much more in numerous studies. When it comes to mental health, though, SMS may have a more complicated relationship with our wellness.

Could Texting Save Clinical Trial Recruitment?

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 09:00:00 -0400

Getting a drug on the market is no easy feat; an enormous amount of research, development, and trials are only quantitative markers of the process a new medication must undergo before ganing the clear for distribution by healthcare professionals. One would hope that, at the least, a research team that has advanced a drug to clinical trials wouldn't have to fret over putting together the trial, but a common difficulty in gathering participants for clinical trials has made this far from the reality for many medical researchers. However, texting may offer a solution.

Is Predictive Text Hurting Our Kids?

Mon, 8 Aug 2016 01:00:00 -0400

We seem to have a love-hate relationship with predictive text. When it works, the convenience of cell phone software that types most of our words for us is a blessing. When it fails, predictive text flubs are at best comical and at worst frustrating and time-consuming.

How Texting Can Keep You Safe in Severe Weather

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 09:00:00 -0400

Most of us can recall a time when we wished we had planned a little better during a big storm. After all, bad weather is an unavoidable fact of life, and all we can do when severe weather is expected is plan accordingly to stay warm, dry, and safe. Believe it or not, text messaging can help you do that: SMS weather alerts are perhaps the most powerful and effective tool to stay in the know, and therefore to plan right, for severe weather.

Text message weather warnings take advantage of the immediacy of SMS. During an inclement weather situation, it is best to be in the know as soon as possible. Rather than finding out via friends and family or news articles, getting information from text alerts ensures that updates are immediate. And text messages are more likely to be seen, and seen immediately, than other media like broadcasts and emails.

How Your Phone Can Make Driving Safer

Tue, 5 Jul 2016 01:00:00 -0400

As much as we love our phones, their widespread use has a number of negative consequences, and the fact that almost one in four car collisions involve cell phones is a particularly grave one. However, many innovators have responded to this danger, developing technologies that aim to reduce the role of cell phones in distracted driving. These devices and applications serve to build understanding of the perils of distracted driving as well as to fight drivers urges to use their phones on the road.

One way app developers have addressed the issue of cell phones and road safety is through education. Some applications focus specifically on the issue of distracted driving, teaching users of the potential consequences and dangers of averting their eyes from the road.

The further we implement text messaging in our lives, the further its impact reaches.

How Texting Is Helping the Fight Against Prostate Cancer

Thu, 19 May 2016 09:00:00 -0400

Text messaging is rapidly shaping up to offer a solution for just about everything, and it seems every time we look, there is a new, specific application of texting to improve our lives. One exciting use of SMS to develop in recent years promises to help those diagnosed with or at risk of prostate cancer.

While specific, this cause is a relevant and important one; around one in six American males are diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point in their lifetimes, and prostate cancer is responsible for the second highest number of cancer-related deaths in American males, behind lung cancer. While a large proportion of those diagnosed with prostate cancer survive, a diagnosis certainly requires a great deal of physical care and emotional support.

Many of us have tried leaving ourselves notes or setting alarms as reminders of appointments and meetings, with varying degrees of efficacy, but what about reminder texts?

How Your Bank is Using Text Messaging

Mon, 4 Apr 2016 09:00:00 -0400

The introduction of online banking marked an important step for banks into the 21st century; being able to access account information rapidly and remotely is a boon to the modern person. But more and more, online access isn't cutting it; web pages are often less accessible on the go, or less user-friendly on smart phones. Many banks have made these services more accessible by developing banking apps, but what about when Internet or data access falter? Text banking offers a quick, easy, and readily available solution.

Text banking, or SMS banking, operates similarly to many automated text messaging services.

Tracking Animals with SMS

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 09:00:00 -0400

Oftentimes, we think of the conservation of the old as incongruous with the use of newer technology like mobile devices. This is far from the case; in fact, GPS technology is being combined with text messaging to track both wildlife and livestock, a useful tool to keep an eye on both the farm animals we depend on and the increasing number of endangered or threatened species.

One device conservationalists are using to keep tabs on wildlife is cellular GPS collars. Cellular collars are affixed to animals, which then use GPS to calculate the animal's coordinates. This information is relayed to researchers via SMS. The frequency of text message updates can be controlled by the researchers

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 11:41:33 -0400

We have all heard horror stories about the traveler who comes home to a $6,000 phone bill after using their device abroad. While using your phone outside of the country is likely to cost you a little more than usual, you should not be afraid of taking your phone with you on your travels. Before shooting that MMS with the view from your hotel room, though, you should do a little research to make sure you are not in over your head.

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 11:40:52 -0400

Though Western panic about the 2014 Ebola outbreak has largely calmed down, the epidemic remains a deadly reality in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea. With cases on the rise on the West African coast and fear of the disease's spreading East to Cote d'Ivoire growing, efforts to quell the epidemic in this region are of critical importance. One surprising, and surprisingly effective, agent of these efforts is, yes, texting.

But the fact of the matter is, when it comes to SMS technology, everyone is finding ways to advance the things that are important to them, and religion makes no exception.

Lets Talk About Sex: How Cell Phones Are Changing the Face of Sex Education

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 11:38:29 -0400

Love it or hate it, sexual health education in the U.S. experiences a dearth of funding and valid information, and people are fighting back. Efforts like volunteer teaching programs, fundraising, and awareness campaigns strive to give today's youth the information they need to make healthy decisions, but perhaps one of the most powerful moves made in this arena has been the push to use SMS and mobile applications to reach teens with comprehensive, factual information on sex and sexual health. After all, what better way is there to reach a teenager than through their cell phone?

New Role of Cell Phone in Politics

Wed, 4 Mar 2015 09:00:00 -0500

With the expansion of cell phones into so many aspects of our lives, it's hardly surprising that cell phones are playing a growing role in the political sphere. A huge majority of 88% of American voters own cell phones, 27% of whom have used their devices for politics-related purposes. While it is clear that the relationship between cell phones and politics has grown to be significant, it is less immediately evident what, exactly, the new role of cell phones in politics is.

Why You Should Recycle Cell Phones

Tue, 21 Sep 2010 09:00:00 -0400

Cellular phones and other mobile devices often contain toxic materials that can pollute the environment. The chemicals contained in the cell phones and electronics are harmful to the health of both humans and animals. Cell phones and their accessories contain a large number of hazardous substances known as Persistent, Bioaccumulative, and Toxic Chemicals PBTs. Some of the chemicals contained in the PBTs have been known to cause damage to nervous systems, reproductive systems, and developmental systems, as well as causing cancer.

NotePage Is a Green Business

Wed, 22 Jul 2009 09:00:00 -0400

A business that makes the decision to be environmentally-conscious will often promote goodwill among potential customers, while making the world a better place for future generations. Many businesses hesitate to adopt green practices because they fear it will hurt their bottom line and negatively impact profits. But many eco-conscious businesses discover that they can actually save money and bring in new customers who specifically patronize companies that actively make an effort to be environmentally friendly. Many customers may even be willing to pay a bit more for a product or service from a company that is green.

Many businesses already do things that are eco-friendly, not necessarily because they are sensitive to green living, but simply to save money. That does not, however, diminish the value of their green efforts. The trick for businesses is to be eco-friendly without compromising profitability.

Steps Businesses Can Take to Go Green

To ensure delivery even in the event of connectivity loss, PageGate version 5 supports failover options and redundant connectors.

PageGate's modular design allows users to select from eight different interfaces, allowing users to scale PageGate to meet their business needs and expand as their needs change.

Welcome to NotePage news. If preferred this newsletter can also be viewed online at: http://www.notepage.net/newsletter-051106.htm Realtors and RSS Reach Customers A New Way A large number of NotePage customers are realtors so I thought I would share this article about how Realtors are using NotePage's other software to increase communication. Daily more and more Realtors are turning to RSS as a tool to market homes for sale. The growing RSS phenomenon in the realty market makes perfect sense. Unlike email RSS feeds have a 100% delivery rate. In addition the costs involved in creating and managing an RSS feed are insignificant when compared to the print advertising Realtors spend on each week. Imagine the amount spent each week to promote various properties in circulars and weekly newspapers, compared to the costs associated with updating and managing an RSS feed. http://www.feedforall.com/realtors-use-rss.htm NotePager Pro and PageGate Support Tips Carrier Consolidation Many carriers that have gone through buyouts in recent years are restructuring their SMS networks to take old terminals off-line and merge other host information. A good example of this would be USA Mobility, Arch, and Metrocall. USA Mobility bought out Arch who bought out Metrocall and, for a little while, it was a guessing game as to whose host information would actually get a message delivered to a device. Fortunately, USA Mobility has decided to start clearing things up a bit and most messages can now be delivered through their Arch hosts and terminals. Group Loops When setting up groups, try not to loop them. Let's say we have groups 1 and 2. Group 2 is in the member list of group 1. If Group 1 is in the member list of Group 2, it's going to cause a message loop that will cause issues unlike anything I've seen. I only mention this because it's something I've run into at least four times this month. SMTP Settings When attempting to configure SMTP based carriers and recipients, we may not have the absolute, up to date information posted on the website. If a carrier has changed their cell phone or pager domain, it may take a week or two, possibly longer, for us to find out and post the relevant changes. If a carrier's SMTP settings are in question, please contact the carrier for verification from them... and let us know about it so we can make the changes appropriate.
