CellSpin is mobile phone software that lets you update multiple social networking websites on the go
- Free, works with a variety of mobile phones
- Didn't always work consistently
The CellSpin application fills a useful niche, and is free, so you really can't complain about the price.
You have your Twitter. And your Facebook. And your Flickr. And your MySpace. And, if you're like most people, the list of websites you use to share information with your friends, family, and the world at large probably goes on, too.
But updating all of those sites doesn't require logging in and out of several different services, thanks to CellSpin. When it works, this application offers a really handy way to send audio, video, pictures, and text
CellSpin's mobile software works with a variety of mobile phones, including the iPhone, many BlackBerry models, several Palm phones (both Palm OS and Windows Mobile-based models), and various other handsets. For a complete list of compatible phones, visit CellSpin's website. (If your phone is not compatible with CellSpin's mobile software, the company offers a workaround: you can update your sites by sending content via SMS, MMS, or email.)
You create an account online and CellSpin sends a link to the software via text message. (If you're using an iPhone, you can download the app directly from the App Store.) You decide which sites you'd like to use CellSpin to update; the list of available sites includes eBay, Facebook, Flickr, Google Blogger, LiveJournal, LiveSpaces, MySpace, Picasa Web Albums, Pownce, Twitter, TypePad, Wordpress, and YouTube. You'll need to enter your username and password for each site so that CellSpin can send information directly to these sites. (Some of this account management can be done directly from your phone, too.)
Now you're in business. From your mobile phone, you can capture photos, voice notes, video clips, and create text notes, and send those directly for posting to you favourite sites. You also can send content that already exists on your phone right to those sites, too.
And when you choose or create something that you'd like to upload, you can decide how many sites you'd like to send it to. You can, for example, send a photo to Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr simultaneously. This is what gives CellSpin an advantage: It eliminates the need to log in to multiple sites.
Our only complaint about CellSpin was that it didn't always work consistently. We tested it on a first-generation iPhone, and sent photos to several websites. Most of them worked fine, but we occasionally had problems getting photos to show up on Facebook. CellSpin asked us to re-authenticate my account (by re-entering my password) and then said the photos had been posted. But in a couple of cases, they never showed up.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
I highly recommend the Dynabook Portégé® X30L-G notebook for everyday business use, it is a benchmark setting notebook of its generation in the lightweight category.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
