Admit it, you're addicted to text-messaging, right? Well someone is, because lately I've been bombarded with ads proclaiming a national epidemic of texting and related fees. Won't someone think of the children! Well maybe someone has, or maybe all this is just silly. Why not send a bunch of text messages for free? I mean, that's what the web is all about, right? Free stuff? As in beer?
Katie over at GigaOM wrote up a neat little roundup of some free SMS tools
you can use to send out for free. She points out the usual caveats: these services could be used for nefarious purposes (spam), and often it costs the recipient some cash to get a message. So use it wisely or wind up on some silly national TV ad.
