WordPress for iOS is pretty single-minded — it’s designed to talk to WordPress blogs (both hosted and self-hosted). And the blogging functionality is still pretty basic, but the one feature I really appreciate in the WordPress app (that’s missing from BlogPress) is the ability moderate comments.

You’ve got an iPad and all the popular magazine, content, reading apps like Reeder, Flipboard, Pulse, and FLUD. Well now there’s a new one using technology from the University of British Columbia’s Laboratory for Computational Intelligence.

Just entered to win a Palm Pre 2.
Follow @bgrier and retweet this tweet to enter
And there you go. It’s simple. Follow me, tweet once and you’re entered to win the Palm Pre 2.
This contest will run until midnight, February 11th, 2011, MST , after which I’ll randomly select the winner.
