Send money to your friends via cellphone with TextPayMe!

This is a cool new "Web 2.0" feature that our parents just wouldn't get: you can now use a service very similar to Paypal to easily transfer money to other people with SMS or text-message capable cellphones. Next time you're out for pizza with your buddies and one person picks up the bill, everyone else can now easily transfer a few bucks to them with just a few strokes of your cellphone keypad, for example.

Even better: sign up through the below link and you'll get a free $5 credit to get started, and who can complain about getting free money?
