Info on the Go

Are you kinda bummed that you can’t browse eBay auctions on your WAP-enabled cell phone while you’re doing 75 down the expressway? Hey, me too. Me too.

Cheer up! Yahoo! Mobile offers a nice alternative if your cell phone has text messaging (and can receive email messages.) Once you have a Yahoo! account, you can receive all sorts of notifications. I get my horoscope sent to me every weekday at 9am, and when the Sox and Cubs are playing, I get the score every three innings. And yes, you can monitor auctions… at Yahoo! Auctions, of course.

It’s a neat thing. Have you seen any sites similar to this? -pm

No thanks. I'll rely on second-hand gossip like I always have.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
