Bulk Text Messaging
This seems very worrisome:
Federal regulators approved a plan on Wednesday to create a nationwide emergency alert system using text messages delivered to cellphones.
The real question is whether the benefits outweigh the risks. I could certainly imagine scenarios where getting short text messages out to everyone in a particular geographic area is a good thing, but I can also imagine the hacking possibilities.
And once this system is developed for emergency use, can a bulk SMS business be far behind?
