    Merry Christmas Eve everyone. I just sent a single Happy Holidays text message to 320 of my friends with one "send". Here's how:

    First off, Out of my 500+ google contacts in gmail/gvoice, about 320 are friends. I put them all in a group that I named "ALL FRIENDS".

    Using Handcent SMS (downloadable from the market for free) I chose to compose a new message. In the "To" field, all the way at the right, there is a little green circle with a "+" button. I clicked that and then added my group "ALL FRIENDS" which had synced over the air from gmail contacts.

    As you can imagine, the phone acted like it was gonna die a little bit, but apparently most if not all my SMS's went out, as I began to get tons of replies.

    I just let 320 people know that I care. Aint technology great?

    That creative use of technology is what I find interesting. It solves the problem of composing 320 individual text messages. I just home you have a 500 or unlimited messaging plan. What if everyone response to you? ;)
