But, don’t despair! I have discovered a cure!
In fact, I discovered best of both worlds. What I have found is a computer phone (in “techy” terms known as VoIP – voice over internet protocol) that is optimally secure. One of many features of computer phone is IM that is built into it. Thus, IM instant messages are sent over optimally secure lines rather than openly public lines on Internet -- AND I can also actually talk to friends from my computer phone any time I want. The “good old days of yore” are back with even more !!!
Here’s what a computer phone is all about.
The computer phone was creation resulting from taking convenience and features of telephone and combining it with power of Internet. Pretty ingenious I think! Although most computers have a built in microphone, some do not. Mine was one of those computers that did not. So, I ran down to a local store and bought one for $5. Then, much to my delight, I found out that it easily plugged into back of my computer.
Here is what is really incredible about a computer phone. I can talk, IM, make 3-way calls, transfer a call to my cell phone if I am running out door, and much, much more.
Actually, I have become so accustomed to convenience of features on my computer phone, that it actually becomes frustrating when I cannot IM a friend I am talking to on their cell phone or telephone. You see, often times, I find great sites to share with my friends, so I have to slowly spell out location over phone and repeat letters so they get right site, then wait for them to repeat it back to me, rather than quickly IMing them site and letting them click on it right then and there.
One final word of wisdom -- over 90% of all computer phone (VoIP) services out there do not operate on secure lines. The one I am using is optimally secure because they have their own proprietary high end encryption codec (code) with patented technology that is hosted in a professional facility. You just can’t get any better than that!
