Posted on 8-Dec-2005 08:35. | Tags Filed under: News. has launched its own MediaBlog service. This free service goes beyond traditional web logs or blogs by providing support for any file type a member may want to upload and share through a personal, customizable space on the mediablog portal.

In addition, the MediaBlog supports making blog posts directly from popular mobile phone applications such as Nokia's Lifeblog, included on most of Nokia's latest handsets as well as support for Apple iTunes Podcasting.

One of the main shortcomings identified were file restrictions. While traditional blogs only support images,'s MediaBlog product allows members to upload any file type, from a Powerpoint Presentation to a MPEG4 video file. There are no identified restrictions on file size or file type.

"With our email retrieval application our focus has always been to ensure compliance with hand-held devices, whether it's a basic mobile phone or a more advanced PDA, and we've tried to do the same with this product," said said Tony Yustein, CEO of SoftCom Technology Consulting Inc. "Mobile phones now outnumber Personal Computers and some are almost as powerful. With all our products we want to make sure we continue to support that growing market."

The support for devices is evident in the recent release of the MediaBlog service, where a member can publish to their blog by sending an email message - from any device - to a unique email address and include media files as attachments. In addition to this is looking forward and has included support for the Atom standard, an interface that supports publishing from a variety of client applications, most notably Nokia's Lifeblog application which comes pre-installed on more recent Nokia phones.

This release complements a suite of free consumer products including a free email retrieval application, a free jabber-based chat services that allows users to chat with MSN, AOL, YAHOO and ICQ users through one account, a free Usenet reader and an online games section.
