Mozilla launched a new service that’s currently in the testing phase. It’s goal is to make it easier for you to view websites, images, and video on any mobile device. Please give a warm welcome for Joey…
Project Joey brings the Web content you need most to your mobile phone by allowing you to easily send it to your device. You can quickly mark content that is important to you and have that content always available while using your mobile phone.
The premise is this: you can use Firefox to send text clippings, pictures, videos, RSS content, and Live Bookmarks to your phone through the Joey Server. The Joey Server transcodes and keeps all of the content up-to-date. You can then use your phone’s browser or the Joey application on your phone to view and manage what you have uploaded.
So Joey is pretty much a Firefox extension for you to use that sends information to the Joey servers. Then you can access the information at anytime on your phone or PDA in a mobile-friendly format. It’s a nice idea, but it does require that you plan ahead of time what you’ll need access to. For that reason I think I’ll pass on this one.
If you don’t trust Mozilla with storing the information, that’s no problem because they walk you through what you’ll need to do to setup your own Joey server. It’s not quite as easy as point, click, and run, but I’m sure there are a few geeks out there who wouldn’t mind giving it a shot.
