When we hear about these light-speed texting champions, our jaws drop. This year's prize winner for the LG National Texting Championship is 13-year-old Morgan Pozgar, who managed to bang out the word supercalifragilisticexpialidocious in 15 seconds without one single spelling error. Damn!


For her next trick, her parents are making her bang out the following sentence, 20,000 times: "I will not run up a $10,000 phone bill ever again." That should keep her busy for a couple of hours. Two words to her parents: unlimited plan.

8000 txt's is a lot, but I've got friends here that top 4000. Here in NZ each network offers 2000 txt's for what would be about US$6 a month, on pre-paid. Also one does unlimited txt'ing, calling and video calling to one nominated phone for about US$ 4 a month.

If I had a kid I'd want them to have a cellphone from the age they're away from home a fair bit. For safety mostly.

I'd be worried about that girl getting repedative strain injury though!
