Is email obsolete?

I have been scorned for continuing to use email & Skype rather than Viber Ė is Viber the direction in which the world is moving?

Iíve fiddled with Viber with no great success. Installed it on my PC now the b*** thing is bitching because I donít have Viber on my phone fgs!

But not to worry, our 6 y/o grandson is coming over later and doubtless he will sort it for me

Re: Is email obsolete?

The problem with most of these new fangled apps is they can be useful for instant communication but that's not always appreciated by the receiver.

My life and work would be unlivable if I had to speak to everybody who craves an answer. With email I can take the time to formulate replies which hopefully make sense. Just like on this forum.

With email (which I use mostly) I am able to respond to or initiate a communication at MY leisure not someone else's. When I go out to play I don't take a phone and I certainly don't take a laptop or Iplod etc. I go out to talk with people. I despair these days to see whole families sitting in a restaurant/bar with their heads buried in their devices especially when they are on holiday in my town.

How many times have we heard people say "I'll just look that up", who really cares what the capital of Venezuela is at this very minute!

Jaycey maybe mature folk like us should stick with the tried & tested and leave these newer annoyances to others, today its Viber and Watsapp etc. tomorrow it will be something else.

Re: Is email obsolete?

And Evo I dispair at YOUR reply to Jaycey.

There you were at Ephesus surrounded by all that ancient history and wonderment and your bloody phone rings! But worse . . . . You answer it.

I mean c'mon, free or not there's a time & place for everything.

Actually Rob, to be fair, he could have been at the entrance, surrounded by brass camels, overpriced onyx objects, copies of statues with outsize willies and quadruple priced drinks

Re: Is email obsolete?

Yes Ibrahim I can now see I hadn't considered that possibility.

The dreaded commercialism. I suspect nothings changed in that respect since the place was built.

Well said. 100% agree Rob. - Bickern

Well if you were sat in a bar doing a quiz you may well care - Bickern

Jaycey maybe mature folk like us should stick with the tried & tested and leave these newer annoyances to others, today its Viber and Watsapp etc. tomorrow it will be something else.

Yes, I will also stick to email thanks (unless it's my daughter. LOL.) - Bickern
Are we just too old and set in our ways Rob? That reminds me, I need a new pair of slippers.
