Cachet


That's what I calls it.

I made an acquaintance at an event over the weekend, and we talked of a program I am interested in participating in. We exchanged cards. I emailed a hello to this person's professional email address, and received a response back promising a later message from the personal account.

I've just received a new message with more info, and it looks quite promising. However, I noticed at the end of the message this legend:

"Envoyé de mon iPhone"

Sent from my iPhone. In French. Here's my question - how do you get your iPhone to send that default message in French? Does it come that way if you are sending from France? Or if you have a French carrier? Or do you just set it up that way, so that even if you are a burger-flipper working out of a Dairy Queen in Davenport, Iowa, your iPhone message can still be delivered in French?

Do you think my new acquaintance is sophisticated? Or just putting on airs?

What say you?

I know someone whose message says "sent while riding my bike."

You can set your phone to say anything (Settings, Mail, Signature) so I think there is some pretension there. No obvious French accent?

From my experience in airports lately, most people I've seen should have their phones say "sent while on the can."

maybe she's just a francophile :-) gives me a great idea! I think I'll change mine to "sent while taking a break from entertaining my shiba" ;-)

Whats an iPhone?

I agree. Just because you can set it up to say anything you want, it doesn't mean there is a need to be pretentious or cute...
