MMS is coming to the iPhone

It looks like an update will get released so that Apple iPhones will support MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service). It's about time, isn't it? Why the delay Apple and AT&T?

MMS is similar to SMS (Short Message Service), but it allows you to include images and sounds. In my mind, it's analogous to receiving text-only e-mails vs. HTML e-mails. Texting is about to reach a whole new level. Someday, people will look back and say, "remember when we could only send text-only messages?" I still remember the days of monochrome monitors and floppy disks (I won't talk about Commodore 64).

  1. This is a great feature but it will place additional load on the already overburden AT&T network.
