Another good announcement from Gizmo5 this week. They have added the ability to have two-way SMS chats. It has been possible to send SMS messages from Gizmo fro quite some time; what's new in this is that the SMS recipient can send an SMS reply, and it shows up in the Gizmo5 text chat window! Not only can this be very handy, but the price is very good as well - generally lower than the local carrier charges per message. Here in Switzerland, for example, Swisscom charges 20 cents per message, while Gizmo5 charges 12 cents!

About J.A. Watson

I started working with what we called "analog computers" in aircraft maintenance with the United States Air Force in 1970. After finishing military service and returning to university, I was introduced to microprocessors and machine language programming on Intel 4040 processors. After that I also worked on, operated and programmed Digital Equipment Corporation PDP-8, PDP-11 (/45 and /70) and VAX minicomputers. I was involved with the first wave of Unix-based microcomputers, in the early '80s. I have been working in software development, operation, installation and support since then.
