World Cup texting championship opens in New York City

OMG...I mean... oh, my gosh, New York City is hosting the Olympics of text messaging this week. And it’s no LOL matter.

Competitors from more than a dozen countries are participating in the LG Mobile World Cup. The winning team, judged on speed and accuracy, will take home a $100,000 prize.
