Email vs Text Messaging - it's all permanent

So, I think I figured out why everyone likes using SMS (text messaging) over email.

I like email because it's platform agnostic, produces a "igotacopy-yougotacopy" paper trail that's proven really hard to eliminate by people smarter than I.

Other people like SMS because their contacts are much more limited compared to email, there's no subject-line, and they think it's transitory. It's not, according to;

The NSA.Your cell service provider.Me. Because I've mastered the screenshot function... Oh, look, here's Google Photos, that will keep it forever, for free.

In 2017, these are the new external hard-drives.

Crazy as it sounds, flash-drives are where it's at these days...
Between Chromebooks, Windows-books (that's not what Microsoft calls them, but that's what they are), and the resurgence of MicroSD storage on Android phones, it's easier and cheaper to install only enough storage as needed by the OS and let the customer get whatever else they need.
From where I'm sitting, it's working out quite well.
