  2. Michael says:

    Yes, you can! 😉

    I love it Michael, I have been using it since day 1. I have BB. The hardest part is scrolling down to the bottom after refreshing to see new posts. Especially when there is 200+ posts. I’ve tried it on both Opera Mini and the standard BB browser. Opera loads much faster but the BB browser allows you to go directly to the bottom just by hitting the B key, but you trade that for much longer wait for the page to come up, like 30+ seconds on a 200+ commented thread or 10 seconds with Opera.

    It would be nice if the mobile version displayed how many comments have been made. Also if it would split the comments up into separate pages limited to like 30 a page, something like that. Just spit balling, love it just the same!!!!

    thanks for doing that!

  5. Michael says:

    NA,

    I’ll look into what’s available…my guess is that it will get more capable in a hurry because of the demand.

    I’m going to offer a contrary view. I do have a (neglected for the time-being blog) and I would not optimize it for iGadgets. To tell you the honest truth, I am sick and tired of people and their ever-present gadgets. Too many meals disrupted by people texting and fooling around with their apps, too many conversations disrupted by “urgent” texts, too much money wasted on these things. How nice it would be to have an unbroken conversation with some of my sons w/o them constantly checking their iGadgets. I have a simple Trac phone which I rarely use.

    I have just recently (and with great effort) overcome my FarmVille addiction. I learned a thing or two about what’s real and what’s not real during this mini-trial.

    No criticisms implied towards those of you who love this stuff but personally, I see our over-use of these gadgets as a snare and an entrapment. At least it is in my life. Am I so busy messing around on FB’s social network that I neglect the people in my real life? I certainly spent more time “farming” FarmVille than I did working in my real garden. (But not anymore!)

    I’m down to a very inexpensive mini-laptop and when that’s gone, I might not replace it. My three best friends rarely use their computers. If I send them an email they might not read it for a week. I am rather impressed by this. If they can do it, so can I.

    How do I get by address to saty or do I have to type it every time?

  8. Michael says:

    DMW,

    You can add a bookmark by tapping the + sign at the bottom of Safari.

  9. Michael says:

    Xenia,

    You have a point…it is to the point where I am interacting with multiple people 24/7.

  10. Deadmanwalking says:

    Of course it’s not like I Ever leave the house Just a. New way to play

  11. Xenia says:

    I wonder if the human nervous system is designed to receive so much imput. I wonder if this continual racket / information overload impedes the soul’s ability to commune with God.

  12. Sarah says:

    Xenia…and I have wondered often if we were to carry the weight of the concerns and needs of so many. I wonder if it makes us inept in our own spheres as we are made aware of the needs of multitudes. I think there is always a need for balance and discernment…I’m not very good at either.

  13. Michael says:

    Xenia,

    Those are two excellent questions…I do know that the very few times I’ve “unplugged” it takes about three days to relax and feel normal.

  14. Michael says:

    Sarah just hit on the big one for me…

  15. ( | o )====::: says:

    Michael,
    Is there a way to scroll to the bottom using iPhone Safari?

  16. Michael says:

    Grendal,

    You have to flick a lot from my iPod.

  17. Shaun Sells says:

    Cool, this is my first time on the site with my iPod touch!

  18. Dusty says:

    Michael,

    I have been able to view the PP on my Sprint phone.

    Is there something different I need to do to view it with the new feature?

  19. Michael says:

    Dusty,

    It will automatically detect the mobile site if it works on your phone.

  20. Believe says:

    I still remember Pong and the Atari 2600..those were the days!

    …and the first Macs. MacPaint and MacWrite totally rocked. 🙂

  21. Michael says:

    I was slightly surprised at Apples total dominance of the numbers…Android came in at 4% and I thought they would be much higher.

  22. Cash says:

    This is awesome, Michael! MUCH easier! 🙂

  23. Michael says:

    Cash,

    Glad to hear it…I’ll have to do the same thing with .com when it comes back.

  24. deadmanwalking says:

    I still remember using a Comador 64

  25. deadmanwalking says:

    the one with the 8 inch floppy

  26. Shaun Sells says:

    I just saw that iPhone 0S 4.0 will have multitasking…unfortunately my first gen iPod Touch won’t be able to handle it, so I guess it is time for me to buy the iPad!

  27. deadmanwalking says:

    remember getting my first power book — all 40 mega-bites and wondering how they could go from here. It seemed like the end all with that tiny screen and all that rooooom on the Hard drive — I mean I could have my Bible and my Calendar and word processor open all at the same time without having to shut one down to use the othe. What more could you ever want??r

  28. deadmanwalking says:

    When I get a job, my first paycheck will probably go to an I-Pad

  29. BrianD says:

    Shaun, get a 3GS if you need the phone.

    I remember the Atari 2600, the Commodore Vic-20, Commodore 64, Sega Genesis….all the way up to the iPhone.

    iPad. iPad. iPaaaaadddddd…..

  30. Shaun Sells says:

    I can’t get the phone – we have no AT&T coverage in Wyoming. The maps on TV lie.

  31. Reuben says:

    This is great Michael! Thanks! Strapped to a BlackBerry and iPhone daily, and PP is the hardest to load by far of all the blog sites I visit on any given day. Super!

  32. Reuben says:

    Outstanding, works on both great!

  33. Michael says:

    Reuben,

    Excellent!

  34. Michael says:

    My first computer was an Apple Performa with a .750 hard drive.
    That was 1996 and it is still running today in my nephews room.

  35. BrianD says:

    Then Shaun you should be able to get the 4.0 update with the latest version of the iPod Touch. Needless to say, don’t get the 3G iPad 😉

  36. deadmanwalking says:

    Dose anyone else remember 8 inch floppy disks you would probably have to go to a museum to see my firsr computer.

  37. Reuben says:

    My first Mac was an SE-30. I think I had an external 300MB hard drive connected via SCSI. I thought that there was no way a person could need more space than that. My wife’s iMac is ten fold faster and more powerful than that thing was, and that thing was state of the art.

  38. deadmanwalking says:

    Since we are going to one up, I remember playing war with plastic army men and cherry bombs. It was a lot more realistic than army computer game — we would build roads and bridges them blow them up.. Of course that pipe bomb in 1959 didn’t work out so well, still deaf in one ear and the scar still hurts a little.

  39. BrianD says:

    yeah. we used them back in the ’80s.

  40. Shaun Sells says:

    My first computer was the Commodore Vic 20 – my dad sprung for the tape drive and everything! I would type for hours so that I could get a little stick figure to do jumping jacks or a ball to bounce around the screen…

    That didn’t format well did it… sorry.

    My husband just got the Android and loves it.

  43. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    I have never had a computer – I do this all with mind control. No upgrades needed. 🙂

  44. Glenn says:

    I can’t figure out half the stuff on wordpress that would enhance my blog. I blog and pray that the right people drop by. I see all of these things to draw more people and half the time I can’t figure them out. It seems there’s always new stuff coming out.

    I am able to track visitors and learn where many are located. Over a third of my visitors are international which is surprising. How I get excellent information to post many times is to drop by here and steal it! Link-A-Thons are great and some of you post stuff I find incredible. One of my articles was simply me copying and pasting a series of exchanges that took place here.

    My computer is a Dell. It’s swell! 🙂 I kicked butt on Tetris! That’s my experience with computers. Back to your normally programmed blogging!

  46. Linnea says:

    I love my iphone…I can take a quick lunch break, access pp from the 3g network and not even have to sign on to my employer’s wireless domain. It contributes to my sanity… 🙂

  47. Believe says:

    I bought an old school mac classic a few months ago from a customer…all original, box, paperwork, and and Apple dot matrix printer…absolutely classic. It has MacPaint and MacWrite…it is sooooo cool! Got it all for $25. It works great!

    It’ll be the computer my kids learn to type on, do word processing, basic graphic design (no internet!).

    Brought back some rare good memories of growing up 🙂

    Wow, the Commodore 64…a whole 64k! That was revolutionary!

    Anyone remember Intellivision and B-52 Bomber? Then the original Nintendo…RBI Baseball and Tecmo Bowl. They’ve never topped those two sports games.

  48. BrianD says:

    I wanted ColecoVision; that to me was the Holy Grail of 80s video games. Never got to play one.

    In my dreams, where I have an obscene amount of money, I have nearly every 70s and 80s arcade game ever invented plus Intellivision, Coleco, Atari and Vectrex. And an Amiga.

  49. Believe says:

    BrianD…oh man…how could I forget ColecoVision….It’s on…like DONKEY KONG!

    Wasn’t it the precursor to what eventually became Nintendo?

  50. BrianD says:

    I believe Coleco went out of business, but I’m not sure what the connection was to Nintendo.

  51. nomansapologist says:

    Checking in on my Blackberry… Quite possibly from work 😀

  52. BrianD says:

    There’s an Intellivision app for iPad and a Commodore 64 game app for iPhone.
