How to save audio messages on your iPhone and change your settings so audio messages stop deleting after 2 minutes

  How to save audio messages on your iPhone and change your settings so audio messages stop deleting after 2 minutes You can save audio messages on your iPhone by tapping "Keep" under the message in your Messages app, or export them by using the "More" button to select a message.But Apple treats these audio messages like top secret communications - by default, they expire and are permanently deleted two minutes after the first time you listen to them, with no option to get them back. However, it's easy to preserve them longer.

Quitting your job can be a tricky thing. For most of us, it requires a little tact. So when one reader emailed us asking if it was ever okay—as he had seen twice recently— to quit via email and text message to their boss—we Quitting a job and transitioning to a new one is a serious career move.

“If you’re going to treat me with such disrespect don’t bother coming back into work.”

This was the text massage my physio received from his boss of three years after he announced his resignation giving the standard four weeks’ notice.

My twenty-something physio was shocked by his boss’ response. He couldn’t see what he’d done wrong. He’d given a month’s notice which, as a casual, was more than he was required to do. He was expecting his boss to be grateful. Instead, he’d been sacked on the spot.

Mysterious wave of texts leave Americans extremely confused

  Mysterious wave of texts leave Americans extremely confused A mysterious technical glitch has seen some American mobile phone owners receive unintelligible messages from their friends, family, and even exes. It is believed that a "maintenance update" caused texts originally sent in February to be randomly sent in the early hours of Thursday morning. While the glitch helped reunite friends who hadn't talked to each other for several months, the unprompted messages instilled fear in others.One woman from Oregon said she woke up at 5am to a text from her sister that simply said "omg" - causing her to worry that something had happened to her newborn nephew in hospital.

Quitting via text sounds a lot easier than having that awkward conversation about your two weeks’ notice, right? So is it that unrealistic to think quitting using a smartphone isn’t also OK ? “ Quitting by text message is an improper way to communicate one’s frustrations with your boss or manager

When Is It Acceptable to Quit Your Job via Email? Even if you do quit your job via email, giving two weeks’ notice is standard practice. First Paragraph Your email message should state that you are resigning and include the date when your resignation is effective.

It didn’t occur to my physio that the problem was not the message, but the medium. He’d delivered his resignation over text message.

A few weeks earlier the owner of my local cafe was just as offended one of his staff also quit via a text message. The employee was also 20-something and, from what I could tell, was a kind and considerate person and not the type who would be deliberately disrespectful.

“It’s just so rude,” fumed the cafe owner. “She couldn’t even be bothered to pick up the phone and speak to me. Young people these days just don’t know how to communicate.”

As a Gen Xer who entered the workforce at a time when only the CEO had a mobile phone and email was available only on one computer connected to a pinging dial-up modem, the idea of resigning from a job via a text message does seem unfathomable.

Murphy urges McLaughlin to quit Supercars

  Murphy urges McLaughlin to quit Supercars "I have no doubt that he is looking further afield and so he should be," said the NZ V8 legend.A ninth-placed finish at the Sandown 500 on Sunday was enough to claim back-to-back championship titles for McLaughlin.

Right now I have to follow or DM's direction which is cutting anyones hours that are still training or need assistance. I am really sorry." Funny thing is she just recently told me I am fully trained I am feed up with the way she treats me, as well as my fellow coworkers and want to quit . But how do I word it in a

What the..who would fire via text ? Who does that ? That is cowardice in its greatest form. I can’t believe any boss would be that childish and petty. I hope he/she reads this message . Dear sir/madam, you are a child and you don’t need to be running a business or in charge of anything.

But I suspect that this may say more about me being an old fart than it does about Millennials being rude. After all, the content of these resignations is much the same as anything an older person would say, the only thing that has changed is the mode of delivery.

And hasn’t the mode of delivery changed for almost everything else?

For many young people, the majority of their employment process and communication occurs on their phones. They search for jobs on their phones, they apply for jobs via their phones, receive notifications of their progression through the application process via their phones, they even get rosters and pay statements via their phones.

Text messaging has become so normalised as a means of formal communication that government departments and banks use it routinely. Even Centrelink’s Robodebt system uses text messages.

OK, so Centrelink’s Robodebt system is not an example of anything we should be trying to emulate, but you can see why people might be confused about text etiquette. If your own government thinks it’s OK to send automated text messages or emails with potentially life-changing contents, then sending a personalised text message to your employer seems fine.

How in the world does she figure it 's wrongful termination if she quit ? wrongful termination? how can it be when your girlfriend was the one who quit ?

Quitting your job can be a tricky thing. For most of us, it requires a little tact. So when one reader emailed us asking if it was ever OK to quit via email or SMS, we had to wonder: are times changing Or by text message ? Do you think it ever will be? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

And it’s not as if remote, text-based work practice is anything new. As a freelancer I have worked for editors and clients for years that I have never once spoken to over the phone. Our entire professional relationship is conducted over email and text messages. If I were to quit one of these arrangements I would send an email.

You might argue that an email resignation is somehow different from a text message. But why? What’s the actual difference? Isn’t it just the same words, only transmitted over a different communications protocol and different carrier service?

Communications technology isn’t the only thing that’s changed in the past 20 years. The workforce has become increasingly casualised and employee conditions have eroded. The bonds between an employee and an employer are weak and flimsy — which benefits the employer but can be a nightmare for employees in terms of job security and lifestyle. The modern-day workplace is hardly a fertile ground for employee loyalty to sprout and flourish.

If bosses are essentially treating their staff with the dispensability of a Tinder date, can we really blame casual employees when they quit their jobs with the equivalent of swiping left?

Rather than using text message resignations as a way to have yet another crack at young people, wringing our hands about the instant-gratification-quitter generation, perhaps it’s time to accept that the world has changed and the rest of us need to keep up.

Let’s face it, if people can end their long-term relationship by changing their social media status, by comparison, sending a text message to quit a job seems like making an effort.

Twitter finally makes an important security change that helps everyone .
Here's everything you need to know about the change to two-factor authentication codes.Two-factor authentication, widely considered a best practice when it comes to keeping your online accounts secure, adds an extra layer of security to your online accounts by requiring a six-digit number after you've entered the correct password for your account. Originally, two-factor codes were delivered primarily via text message, but that's proven to be problematic. For example, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's account was hacked in August.
