Video games instantly draw attention of children and have the ability to enhance their learning experience. The new era of education, uses this type of medium due to its positive results and easy to learn approach. It helps those students who have weak skills regarding a particular subject and as it is linked with entertainment, the student does not find it boring.

WordPress for Android powered devices

In Internet on May 3, 2011 by Asif Mumtaz Tagged: , , ,

I am having a great day after i installed the WordPress app from Android market.

It is a powerful yet extremely simple application that gives you a mobile version of WordPress. Once the app is installed, you can add a new blog or add an existing wordpress blog. You can add self hosted wordpress blogs as well as blogs hosted by wordpress. Adding blogs is really easy and simple.

Once you have added blogs, you will see all of them on your Mobile WordPress dashboard. From there, you can access comments, pages, posts and stats for your blogs. You can also add new posts using a powerful wordpress editor. I am using a small android phone to write this post.

Its a powerful app with all the features that i may ask from a droid version.

You can add media to blog post, format text and can even add links and categories. Posts can either be published immediately or can be scheduled.

If you are a blogger, then this android app should be on your droid device.

Note: Be ready to write without a spell checker and a smaller keyboard than most of you are used to. Despite these limitations, the app is really great.

Dear Sirs

Further to your response below, you should be aware that your misuse of the FOOTBALL MANAGER trade mark in relation to your services constitutes an infringement in the UK, irrespective of Swedish law and whether or not you are based in Sweden, not least because your â^À^Øthepiratebay.orgâ^À^Ù website is targeting users in the UK (as evidenced by the fact that a substantial number of UK users have already used your services to download this game in the UK). This gives a cause of action and jurisdiction to sue you in the UK. Our client would then proceed to enforce the UK judgement against you in Sweden.

In the circumstances, we repeat our request once more that you immediately remove the link complained of and confirm that there will be no further misuse of the FOOTBALL MANAGER trade mark in relation to your services.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully.

Dear Prokaryote(s),

Please sue me in Japan instead. I’ve always wanted to visit Tokyo.
Also, I’m running out of toilet paper, so please send lots of legal documents
to our ISP – preferably printed on soft paper.
No, but seriously. That’s simply not how international law enforcement
works. Using the same logic, a country where web sites are forbidden could
press charges against you for having one.
