I just ran across the WordPress application in the iPhone app store today and, well, this is me testing it out.
No, it’s not really a closed beta invite or anything like that. But I’ve been having fun on this fairly new Twitter/Jaiku/Pownce/Something-like network, so if you want to give it a shot:
Hope to see you there 🙂
Daily Cup of Tech just reposted a nice plain-English explanation of the EULA for Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition:
I just got the strangest newsletter from Mozy. The guy that runs the company seemed to be a tad bit off in this very “professional” blurb:
One of the nice things about being an ugly American is that I make all sorts of ignorant and culturally insensitive remarks about other countries. And as luck would have it, I had that opportunity last week when I visited Montreal. (That’s in Canada.)
The first thing I noticed about Montreal is that it’s a very clean city – like Toronto in that respect. Oh wait – actually, the first thing I noticed was the streets were on fire and full of police and rioting citizens because I guess they won an O-KAY (that’s hockey) game. My flight got in late that night and the taxi driver had to change his routes because the streets were blocked off by police.
Other observations I had were related to confusing things like French-speaking people with the Queen of England on their money and the lack of $1 bills in their currency. Also, the whole “Canadians burned the White House down in 1814? makes me sad inside, but I guess that was a long time ago.
Here’s a little something that seems to have snuck into Google Docs – publishing to a Blog! Create a document in Google Docs (like this one right here), click on the “Publish” tab on the top right corner, and on the bottom, you should see a “Post to Blog” button. You might have to enter your blog settings, but this is quick and easy. Within seconds, you should have a new entry on your blog!
So if you like to take your time and write drafts of blog posts, or just have the formatting/spellchecking/etc tools that are available in a word processor, this might be a great new way for you to post to your blog.
Today appears to be Windows Live day. Microsoft has released updated versions of Live Writer, Photo Gallery, and probably Family Safety, although I don’t personally use that one. This post was written with Live Writer, so I’m inserting an image or two,maybe some other media, and hitting submit. If you can see all of this, it worked!
