laziness won't go away because technology changes. yes, it is in part
because typing on a phone is stupid, but people who will type 'c u l8r'
aren't going to come up with some meaningful parting comment just
because technology advances. they'll probably retrain their voice
recognition software to use l33t instead of correct spelling because
it's cooler.

sorry; just a cranky old guy watching civilization descend into
obvlivion because reading, spelling, and communication are lost arts to
virtually anyone under a certain age.
