Screengrabs ala iPhone

I’m not sure if this is common knowledge or not, but I picked up a cool iPhone tip the other day from I forget where.

If you want to grab screenshots of anything on your iPhone, like stuff you’re browsing in safari or in one of the flickr apps, hold down the sleep/power button and press the home button twice.

The screen flashes and the image is saved to your library – ready for you to insert into your WordPress for iPhone post like this:

WordPress For iPhone Test Shot

I’m writing this post as a quick test of the recent iPhone app for WordPress.

This a picture I snapped of Sapporo TV tower (with the iPhone camera), which we use as our clock. We can see it out of the window, so it seemed like a waste of time to buy a wall clock.

Would love to hear how you’re using the app (or why you aren’t).

WordPress 2.6 Video Mayhem

Just a quick post to say thanks for everyone spreading the word about WordPress 2.6 by means of the short screencast I put together with the good folks as WordPress HQ.

Apparently it’s already done well over 600,000 views, which is somewhat awesome. If you haven’t seen it already, or need some convincing as to why you should upgrade your self hosted WordPress install, why not hit it up here. It’ll cost you a mere 3.5 minutes of your life.
