Mozilla introduces Ubiquity

by Carl. 0 Comments

Mozilla Labs introduces Ubiquity. While still in a very early stage, Ubiquity is a pretty impressive functional addition to future Firefox. Ubiquity’s goals are to:

  • Empower users to control the web browser with language-based instructions. (With search, users type what they want to find. With Ubiquity, they type what they want to do.)
  • Enable on-demand, user-generated mashups with existing open Web APIs. (In other words, allowing everyone (not just Web developers) to remix the Web so it fits their needs, no matter what page they are on, or what they are doing.)

Better than a long speech, check out the video and test it by yourself.

Let’s hope this will also run with Thunderbird…

WordPress for iPhone

by Carl. 0 Comments

Mad about your iPhone? Here is a good way to spend a lot of time playing with its virtual keyboard: write posts on your WordPress blog. Install WordPress for iPhone now and off you go!

WordPress for iPhoneWordPress for iPhone is a free application available from the AppStore and installs very easily.

WordPress for iPhone supports the minimum requirements to efficiently post on your blog. Text, title, tags and categories are supported. WordPress for iPhone allows for posting on multiple blogs (wordpress.com hosted or not), supports local and remote drafts, allows preview of posts and, last but not the least, publishing of the posts.

You want to post what you see? Easy, take a picture, WordPress for iPhone allows for including photos available on your iPhone into your posts.

While WordPress for iPhone does not feature all the plug-ins available for WordPress, it provides a rather complete featureset for an efficient blogging on the go.

The only limitation may reside in your ability to write long posts using iPhone’s virtual keyboard, you will have to be patient.
