It’s great to see my friend Jeff Beard join the blogosphere at LawTechGuru. And in his first week he’s already given me a great tip — Azure. It’s a Palm app that allows you to connect to your weblog app (like Movable Type”, which is what I use).
In fact, I was all set to post this to my blog from my Treo when I discovered a major shortcoming in Azure: that if you get an incoming phone call, Treo jumps to answer the phone call. And Azure goes away… the next time you launch the app it starts you at the beginning… and after you’ve spent 10 minutes laboriously typing in raw HTML on the tiny Treo keyboard and lose it, you get a bit annoyed. That’s not necessarily Azure’s fault (after all, it’s the Treo that decides to give the phone call priority), but it’s a pretty big shortcoming in my book.
Nevertheless, I really appreciate the pointer, Jeff. It’s now on my Treo and I expect it will come in handy if I ever want to add to my blog when I’m not in front of my PC.
I’m looking forward to Jeff’s continued contributions.
