Ribbit open platform for Telephony Innovation

10 07 2008

Ribbit is a phone company reinvented. Combining the web, social networking features with voice.

Telephony has remained virtually unchanged for decades, while at the same time the Internet has revolutionized personal communications in the blink of an eye. Yet, these two worlds remain distinct; walled-off from each other and blocking the innovations that would surely emerge if they were allowed to come together.

Ribbit was created to break this stalemate. Ribbit is the result of a group of Silicon Valley phone and Web veterans coming together, in a distinctly new way, to create a distinctly new company.  View the ribbit website for more info, interesting to follow.

 





Iphone updates: from wordpress

5 07 2008

I’m still doubting about buying an Iphone or Nokia N95 style…., I really don’t like the way Apple put there Iphone in the market…, so ratio says no, heart says yes…., time will figure it out I guess..

News from the wordpress front. 

First we’ve updated our mobile interface, which you can reach at m.wordpress.com, to be much more iPhone friendly. It’s still not sexy, but it’s quite snappy and is great for checking your stats, posting an entry, or posting a bookmark on the go.

Second we’ve updated the Prologue theme to be much friendlier to iPhones both for browsing and posting. We now have about half a dozen Prologues that we use internally at Automattic to coordinate our development, support, and even communication with contractors, so I’ve been testing this out pretty heavily over the last few days and it’s quite handy.

I think the iPhone is a pretty exciting new platform, and I think we’ll do more to embrace it in the future. Having such a powerful browser available on the phone really opens up what you can do. I recently picked up a N95 because I’ve heard people compare it favorably to the iPhone, but the web experience is terrible! Once you get used to that touchscreen, it’s hard to go back.
