The iPhone Wins

Well at the moment this post is coming to you from my new iPhone. That’s right the decision has been made, helped in no small part by the battery dying on my old Samsung mobile.

So this is my first post via the WordPress app for the iPhone and I thought I would post an exciting picture of the new front tyre I had installed last week.

The tyre has relevance as it is a Metzler Marathon ME880 and with a bit of luck it should last until October and make the trip around Australia without needing a change.

First iPhone post, signing out.

edit: Ok so that wasn’t too painless. The typing speed is reasonably fast and I am now able to edit the post after the fact. Unfortunatly the image below which I took with my iPhone is too large, I’ll have to see if there is some kind of thumbnail function. Also don’t seem to have the ability to add meta tags. Still, for blogging on the road I think this should still do quite nicely and the more practice I have the better it should get.

Hi, my name is Glenn Martin and in October 2010 I’ll be taking part in the Steven Walter Foundation “Ride Around Australia”. All participants are being asked to raise at least $2,500 to donate to the Steven Walter Foundation that goes to research into childhood cancer. I’m currently in my 30s, an IT professional living in Canberra Australia for the past 15 years or so. I’ve ridden motorbikes for 20 years and for the last 10 years my ride has been a ‘99 Yamaha Road Star, a big Japanese 1600cc V-Twin cruiser.
