WordPress 2 hits the App Store

October 29th, 2009

WordPress 2 sports an entirely redesigned interface that makes it easier to moderate comments, edit pages, and create new posts. WordPress 2 also fixes a number of problems the previous app had connecting to self-hosted WordPress installs (WordPress 2 is compatible with both WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress installs, though it requires WordPress 2.7 or higher).

The updated app also adds a handful of enhancements: posts are automatically saved so they won’t be lost if you lose network connectivity, commenter gravatars are displayed (if you have them enabled on your blog), and you can enter a custom XML-RPC endpoint (for those that know what this means it’s quite exciting).

You can find out more about WordPress 2 at the WordPress for iPhone blog and the Making WordPress for iPhone blog (remember the WordPress app is open source).

WordPress users on the go will be happy to hear thatWordPress 2, a significant update to the WordPress app, is now available from the App Store. Interestingly, WordPress 2 is listed as an entirely new app, so if you have the WordPress 1.0 app on your iPhone you won’t be notified about the update. You have to download WordPress 2 on its own, though you can have both versions installed on your iPhone/iPod touch.

What is a wave?

A wave is equal parts conversation and document.People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.

A wave is shared. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.

A wave is live. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.

    Was soll man mehr dazu sagen… look: http://store.apple.com/de/product/MB829?mco=Nzc1MjM2OQ
    Und ein Hands-on Testbericht bei Engadget: http://www.engadget.com/2009/10/20/new-imac-and-magic-mouse-unboxing-and-quick-hands-on/

    ( Note: The wired mouse-formerly-known-as-Mighty Mouse — which is still available — was renamed to “Apple Mouse.” This is consistent with the trademark for Mighty Mouse (the computer mouse) being finally picked up by Man & Machine, instead of CBS and Apple.)

    Keyboard: Jetzt mit 2 statt 3 Batterien, und hoffentlich funktionieren die Bluetooth Tastaturen nun auch unter Snow Leopard… Oder Apple bemerkt zumindest, das sie nicht gehen…

    MMS for iPhone 2G and tethering on OS 3.1.2 explained, not for the faint of heart

    October 20th, 2009

    Let’s be clear upfront that this isn’t for the casual iPhone jailbreaker, but if you feeling like living on the edge, you can give your original model an added boost of MMS capability, or any device with OS 3.1.2 the power to tether. Highlighted in a series of tweets today by iPhone dev team lead MuscleNerd, whiterat (for MMS) and two-bit (for tethering) will get the job done, but both require tinkering with the baseband, which is exponentially more advanced and brick-inducing than, say, installing Cydia. Venture forth with the instructions beyond the read links below.

    Googles new Homepage

    October 9th, 2009

    You might have heard of the new experiment Google is running for its homepage, showing only logo and search box (and apparently search buttons, at times) unless your mouse moves over the page. To join this prototype, you can go to google.com and type the following into the address bar, then hit return and reload the page:

    javascript:void(document.cookie=”PREF=ID=abac7a90f5a3784b:LD=en:NR=10:TM=1254990196:LM=1254990236:S=uB6F4jDnMP_DuxtT;path=/; domain=.google.com”);

    Kudos go to JEShack for tracking this cookie!


    Update: And thanks to Techcrunch, here’s the bit needed to trigger the version that doesn’t have search buttons, either:

    javascript:void(document.cookie=”PREF=ID=2602f2ce49362929:U=7b6893b1882d5a94:TM=1239881060:LM=1254195610:L=0qXJlAA:GM=1:S=CwDGQD20E8U14zDg;path=/; domain=.google.com”);
