I was doing a podcast last week and right in the middle of it my phone rang. The caller started to leave a message on my answering machine, which caused my podcast-mates to question why I still had an answering machine in this day and age.
Uh, because I want to get messages?
Honestly, I have a MacBook, a cell phone, three e-mail addresses, an iPod, an iPod Touch, several web sites, I Twitter, and I Skype, and I'm still being accused of someone living in 1994? Come on!
How do you people get messages these days if not via answering machine or voice mail? Is there some futuristic option I'm not aware of?
