Just installed the WordPress app on my iPhone. Now I can blog on the move. I wonder how long it will be until I can blog photos with it.
Turns out you can do photos.
This brought back memories of the old Commodore 64 and Apple II days.

Apple I Basic plucked from vintage cassette tape, turned into MP3
POSTED BY JOHN BROWNLEE, JULY 16, 2008 3:10 AM | PERMALINK
They very first piece of commercial Apple software — a primordial flavor of BASIC originally released in 1976 that took thirty seconds to load — has been perfectly and authoritatively extracted from a yellowing audio tape and converted into a 38 second MP3, playable in iTunes. Plucky, hyper-intelligent beardos are now dissecting the file and learning its secrets, but their findings are a bit above my head. You can read them in full at the link below. All I feel worthy of commenting upon is the song itself, which is rather catchy — a Music to Make Love To Your Old Lady By as interpreted by antediluvian 70s cyborgs.
