Once upon a time, a group of groomsmen on a bachelor party extravaganza split up to negotiate with doormen at several clubs over bottle prices - and then spent precious texting time selecting eight different numbers to message to figure out where the night would best be spent. Ever wanted to communicate with a large group of people (oh, say your bridal party) quickly? Enter GroupMe, a new service that lets you create a "group" of people from numbers already in your contact list. The site assigns your group a phone number - text it, and you send a message to everyone easily; call it and you can start an instant conference call. Share photos, send your location... you get the picture.
