From Tim Higgins’ “Why Apple’s iMessage Is Winning: Teens Dread the Green Text Bubble” in Saturday’s Wall Street Journal.WSJ: How Apple built a walled garden for American teenagers
Green bubbles from those who settle for pretend iPhones ruin group texts for everyone else who uses real iPhones…Apple’s iMessage is winning because of the dreaded green text bubble
In news that is shocking as well as not surprising teen iphone users are casting value judgements on people who send messages that appear in a green bubble signifying that are not iphone users.
There are never good reasons to discriminate against someone, but this is one of the worst.
It’s time to get out of that bubble.
