    Want to know something funny? Though this may be an april fools joke... For android devices (and I'm sure iOS as well), there is an app that will transform your keyboard into what you saw when they first showed the phone. (Not the multitasking stuff!) I've used it before and found it pretty interesting.

    It's an elaborate hoax by Google. I fell for it too.

    Even though it's an April Fools spoof, I knew some IT folks that would probably use something like that and probably try sending to two people at the same time. To me, it's in the same category as "vi".

    I currently have several people on my phone whose ringtone is their name in Morse. With iOS 5, I also set their text tone to say their name. This is a great benefit in knowing that it is someone who I might want to talk to or call back so I can pull over and get the phone.

    (You can record custom ring and text tones with Garage Band on macs, don't know about PCs, although I'd bet there is an open source tool to do this).

    My iPhone does this. The app is called iDitDahText and requires a jailbroken iPhone.

    They're "bringing Morse back". Morse never left.

    You could drive and send a message at the same time without having to look at a keyboard..

    Wow...well done. I was nailed, too...thought it was a great idea!! BTW, my old Nokia cell phone lets me know in Morse when I have a message. It sends "Connecting People". Vy 73 all...Joe
