I think it is peeps. Email is old school now.

When you watch a show, and it's a show where you can contact the show to say something, they give email, Twitter, Face Book contacts, but it's all about Twitter these days.

My Dad would send an email, I'd Tweet.

And I heard email refered to as old school on the TV the other day, and I thought - don't be stupid, it's not been around for long enough, but then this is the 21st century, things move fast these days. There is a 32% chance that you will never get to read this message, as by the time I've typed and posted it, the World Wide Web will have been exterminated in a war to the death with SkyNet, and I've been marked for termination. That's how fast things move.

So yeah, is email old school? Discuss.

Email is old school just because nobody has Blackberries.

I don't do Twitter or Spacebook. When I'm not texting, I'm using e-mail. It aint old-school, far from it.

Snail mail, now that's old-school.

Rawr!

Gmail is better than email because with gmail, you can talk to your friends & family and you can send emails with it too. Email can only send emails. Not talking with friends and family or anything. My gmail address is in my signature.

Enjoy the CHEESE of life.

Yea i have to agree with Machu, emailing is important. Tweeting is great and all but hopefully it will die out in the next few years

Isn't Gmail just email? Am I missing something?

I get pretty hacked off these days with everyone sending messages to each other through Facebook. It's nowhere near as good as regular email and try searching for an old message from over a year ago - nightmare!

This fails in so many ways.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

Doesn't gmail allow you to send really big files and what not?

I don't twitter... I think it is a stupid, autobiographical hobby that people enjoy which I think is stupid because it is.

Run-on sentences aside, Twitter is fine, Gmail is the best email client, and when I'm away from my girl, I write her a letter-- old school. Email is the next, less formal and more practical, step.

It does not take huge files. I've tried.

I see smart phones all over the place, way more than I see regular cell phones.

I hope you're not talking about iPhones.

E-mail is still very much important, especially for businesses. I send E-mails everyday at work as I am sure many people do, Twitter, Facebook etc are no replacement for E-mail.

I wholeheartedly support the proposition put forth by this run-on sentence, because it is chock full of truthy goodness. =)

E-Mail isn't Old School. E-Mail is very up-to-date. Nobody sends an invitation to a party via twitter. And nobody sends an important Word document via facebook.

So, no. E-Mail is not old-school.

I rather think that Twitter, Myspace, Facebook & Co. are gonna be gone soon unlike E-Mails.

Probably getting a Vita with LBP soon...
