"True, and find what will be popular with the next generation certainly pays off. I'm sure businesses are applying big data analytics to just that end."

Ariella, true, another application of Big data Analysis.

Re: Adios Voicemal
"that raises another interesting use question: to figure out what is  ikely to be used in the future, should be focus on what younger people are using now. The assumptions could be that they will stick with what they like and carry it into use for longer than something used only by older people now."

Ariella, thanks for the clarification. Normally its like that, from generation to generation such likes and dislikes varies.

Re: Adios Voicemal
"Interesting development. Do teens use it, too? They are so averse to leaving voice mails that they hang up when the option comes on if they even deign to place a real call. Most of the tiem, they text even when a call would prove more efficient at getting the particular question answered."

Ariella, that's a good option. Let's see how teens are using it; hope they won't misuse.

"This one's interesting. Until a while ago, I thought voicemail was dead too. However, I recently started looking at how people are recording messages and sending them across Whatsapp. They've practically started sending each other voice messages again because it's so convenient now."

Tzubair, such mediums are offering off line communications. Recording the voice and sending across the medium; now a day' s some of the mobile service providers are also providing voice message facility.

Re: Communication and Connections
"This is why video chatting will always be comical because it supplies too much information and so lacks intimacy, and text messages may be expedient, but not intimate."

Jastroff, I can't agree more with this. Video chat provides the opportunity to see atleast the face of near and dear ones. It can also create an impression that they are in front of us like a face to face discussion.

"Dave I would also add voicemail to the list--who really wants to listen to all those messages! Some companies are already axeing VM more will follow."

@impactnow: This one's interesting. Until a while ago, I thought voicemail was dead too. However, I recently started looking at how people are recording messages and sending them across Whatsapp. They've practically started sending each other voice messages again because it's so convenient now.

Re: VoIP
"Each step awat from the original seems a small step. then you take a look at all those little steps and it is hard to recognize the thing we keep calling a phone."

@David: I think that'd be the case with all inventions that have perhaps lost their value or do not exist anymore. On the surface, they may seem dead, but then their core purpose is still alive and is being served by something else. You may call video casette players to be dead but at the end of the day something else is serving the same purpose.
