Example text

Therefore, an important courtesy to observe when sending an attachment to someone you suspect might be on a handheld is to pro­ vide a summary of what the attachment includes and the urgency (or lack thereof) with which the recipient needs to review it. A good Subject line, one in which the first few words describe the message, is particularly helpful. There are three main types of handhelds—those that automatically get new emails “pushed” onto the screen as soon as they are received anywhere (that’s the Research in Motion/BlackBerry technology), those that pull emails in on a schedule you can set (every ten minutes, say), and those that make you fetch your messages.

2001: John Paul II becomes the first pope to send an email apology—for injustices commited by clergy in Oceania. 2001: The Taliban bans Internet access. 2006: Britney Spears dumps husband via BlackBerry message. London’s Metropolitan Police report Britain’s first “web-rage attack,” in which a chat room fight spilled over into the real world. 2007: Email comes to Congress! Senate Judiciary Committee holds really, really long hearings about Republican National Committee email accounts; House Oversight and Government Reform Committee searches for at least 5 million missing White House emails.

Which means midword typos—the kind you usually see in handheld messages—are no more than a minor inconvenience. To wit, try to read the following spurious email, which is currently enjoying an active life on the Internet: When Should We Email? 33 Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae.
