Updating WordPress while mobile (e-mail, MMS) Published on June 22, 2010
I was trying to find a way to keep one of my blogs updated while on a two week motorcycle vacation across Europe. I needed an easy, hassle-free, non-expensive way to update small road-side bits of information.
I have several applications that would do it, like:
- Publishing directly via e-mail does not allow images, and needs an extra step checking the email to post.
- Installing a mobile UI
- Adding a custom posting interface, etc. etc.
But all this required a moderate time-consuming mobile connection, and if your are doing it abroad (roaming), by the end of the two week journey you phone bill will be grown quite fat….
What I really needed was something like an SMS, or MMS. E-mails can be sent via MMS with a fixed price. But directly publishing to WordPress via email (as i’ve described in my previous article “word press posting via e-mail” ), is a bit limited.

Google Launches Buzz! Published on February 9, 2010
Today google announced Google Buzz, a new product that integrates with your Gmail inbox and makes it easy to start rich conversations about the things you find interesting.
Google Buzz lets you share web links, photos, videos, and more with those who are important to you. Rather than simply creating a mobile version of Buzz, Google decided to take advantage of the unique features of a mobile device – in particular, location.
We go through many experiences when we’re on the go, and while there are lots of ways to share these experiences with your friends or even the world, there isn’t always an easy way to let your audience know where you are when you post. Your location brings valuable context to the information you share. For example, does “Delicious dinner!” mean you’re at a great restaurant, or that you had a wonderful home-cooked meal? Your mobile phone, which is with you almost all the time, can help answer these questions.
