Al Jazeera Launches SMS Service

Apr 02 2003 - 10:29 PM ET | Unique

Al Jazeera is starting up a service to send news updates in English and Arabic to people across the world via SMS. The service can be yours for $5.99 a month US.

This is just another sign that SMS is changing the way people get news. 24/7 cable news is no longer fast enough!

Ed. Note: Al Jazeera is pretty hated by some script kiddies so the link may or may not work. If you're interested in the service, keep trying. Any alternate servers that come to our attention will be posted ASAP.
