<< Another problem with IM clients is like phone - you *have* to deal with
person *now*, or ignore them. Email, you can get to it when you have time.
you take 5 minutes to respond to an IM, the other party tends to get antsy,
start bugging you. >>
This is the beauty of IOS messaging. It's persistent. People can leave
conference or private messages and they're waiting for you the next time you
log on. You have a complete history of conversations but only a slight delay
in sending and receiving.
