  1. There is a theory that cell phones are akin to gambling machines and that users expect a “reward” each and every time they check in on their message bank.

    It could just be that the “nude” images provide a harmless “payoff”to reward these Peeping Toms and Thomasinas who check in regularly.

    They are similar to the monkey in the lab pressing the switch to get a positive reward for their efforts.

    This trend probably will replace the collection of bubble gum cards from an earlier era in time. 🙂

  2. Interesting post. I had to smile at the numbers. Seventy percent say they’ve received but only 50 percent say they’ve sent. Hmmm. Either the 50 percent are sending a lot, or some senders are not fessing up! 🙂
