Somehow there is a relevance here...I thought my eyes were playing games with me when I saw it, but when it came up on drudge, I immediately saved the pic to my desktop.
I used the Vision Picture Mail service to send it to a couple of my Treo-bearing friends who were out at parties.
In consideration of the small screen, I cropped a box *just* of the breasts and then resent that to them-
My point is that our devices are enabling things at faster and faster speeds. There are other countries like the Phillipines who apparently have evolved around SMS-- EVERYBODY uses that medium to communicate.
I find it fascinating that tech is really facilitating a shift in the very ways in which we communicate-- THIS IS EXCITING FOLKS!
Sorry, but I didn't need to open this thread to see the pics--I watched the halftime show, too. I opened this thread specifically to ask why this was posted in the hardware section, instead of in "off-topic." But when I saw the childishness of some of the posts, I was sort of amazed. They're about what I would expect from my school children. That's what prompted my reaction.
And your explanation as to why it's here is about as big a stretch, and as poor a rationalization, as I've heard lately. This may have lots to do with convergence, and communication, and technology. But it has nothing to do with Treo 600 hardware, and doesn't belong here.
FWIW, I'm about as amused by the over-reaction of the pious whiners who called CBS to complain as I am the adolescent chortles of some forum members.
I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!
