posterous.com


i overheard posterous mentioned everywhere, on twitter, on plurk. So it tickled me to try it.

posterous is blog service that provide a flexibility for people to post using his/her e-mail, and it's no need some kind of registration form either.

just send e-mail to post@posterous.com, then it'll generate a temporary blog for you which later need to be setup by you.
your 'e-mail' will be shown on your 'going to be' posterous blog.

you can send normal text, pictures, video from your mobile phone, using your e-mail client.

but the problem arise after i try to send a picture which i took using my treo650, then send it via gmail using snapper.
the picture size is only 92 kb. when snapper send it, it become 125 kb (which is normal for e-mail size marked up due to header thing).

since treo 650 is doesn't have 3G capability, i send it using GPRS network.
and it took me averagely 30 minutes just to send 1 picture. and it failed due to timeout.

so there goes fun, i probably won't use my handheld to send blog (pic) post to my blog at posterous.

Hi there! Sorry to see that posterous didn't work for your mobile device. Was the time-out on your device, or somwhere else. Is there anything we can do to help make this work better for you? Let us know -- help@posterous.com
