Keeping it simple — powerfully so

How did E.T. manage to home phone in 1982 with this set-up?

Ping.fm, which is what I use both on my laptop and on my mobile networks to update microblogging accounts, describes itself as a “simple service that makes updating your social networks a snap.”

It definitely delivers as promised. If only all services in life did that.

And even though I don’t have an iPhone (yet! — just a matter of biding out my current contract) and use a severely limited BlackBerry (my workplace has a policy of restricting access to a great many useful Web sites and disabling other features as well), I can post updates here too. There are times I still have to pinch myself when thinking about how many more communication options are open to us now compared with just a few years ago.

What are your favorite ways to take advantage of these advances?

    You know, with just my cell phone (iPhone of course) I can not only keep up with all my email, text messaging, Facebook, Twitter, Friend Feed, etc., but I can do it from anywhere. That is what I am in love it, the ability to stay in constant communication with everyone. (When and if I want to) It’s freeing.
