WTF Yahoo!?

Even though I can’t login to any yahoo services like Twitter or Tumblr and others from Southeast Asia for some odd reason, I figured out that I could post to Tumblr from iOS and Flickr iPhoto. So even the confusion over my unanswered support debacle with these Yahoo services mounts!

What makes no sense is that iPhoto and iOS have what is presumably (?) the same password that I have been trying to input to authenticate, yet I am unable to login with that password. But it still work through these two operating systems. Maybe it’s a security flaw that Yahoo is allowing me to post with the wrong credentials? If so, I’d like my payment for finding it… or at least a response to my numerous support request and Twitter messages!

Thankfully, Yahoo does not own Instagram. The majority of my unposted photos are vanity plate photos which are being updated automatically as well to Tumblr at http://www.plateshow.com (via IFTT) as I submit them to Instagram in the “wee hours” each night (daytime for most of my friends in America following any of this).

Anyway, I’m spending WAY too much time on a vacation going through the MANY vanity plate non-vanity plate photos I’ve taken and never posted. Here’s a burst of Sophia devouring an ear of corn!

Wearable Camera for Cats

Whiskas Australia Tests Out a Wearable Camera for Cats That Automatically Posts Pictures to Instagram

I thought of this in 2002 when we launched textamerica.com with the application of additional home security since burglars aren’t normally concerned about cats as witnesses. Experts said it would be impossible to engineer such a thing. Of course.

Rate Instagram!

Instagram is a great iPhone app that is so much more than the features it offers. If you have an iPhone, you should get it and, if you love it, write a review.

I wrote one a while back from the prompt given within the app, so I have been perplexed and a little annoyed by the continual prompt given each time I use the app. I know, I can (and will) just say “No, Thanks” and it will stop bugging me, but that’s not the point. I wrote a review already. Hello? Stop bugging me!

Anyway, it is a great app (I wrote a very good really short but good review). If you love it, I hope you write one too. I just hope they fix this nag screen so that it “knows” when you’ve submitted a review. It takes away from the experience.

UPDATE: Because of my prior 2 line review, I just wrote something a little more thoughtful… NOW STOP BUGGING ME!

I knew I already wrote a review! (by Shawn Honnick)
