Out of the Blue

Ever-industrious Frans has worked a little more of his magic, in this case it is magic of the mobile variety, as he's ironed out the mobile feed for the site. You road warriors can point your mobile device at either wap.bluesnews.com or m.bluesnews.com and you'll be, as The Who once put it, going mobile.

Mobile Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez.
Play: Tree Tower Defence.
Oiligarchy.
Stories: Two U.S. Astronauts Cast Ballots, Vote From Up In Space.
Determined Texas woman, 92, votes in ambulance.
Science: California company says its flying car will be a sci-fi dream come true. Thanks scorsese.fan.

I take it we won't be able to post comments (or see them) from the m version?
No, only the current day news of the frontpage has been converted into a WML version, not the rest of the site.

The whole idea here is to simply make it possible to check the latest news while on the road, rather than make your main browser completely obsolete.

As for looks, I'm fine with how it looks, but if'n ya want to put it in blue or retro colors, you wouldn't get any arguments from me.
Okay, as currently most formatting is stripped out to reduce page size (and to comply with the WML spec) and I think it's just as easy for everyone to keep it that way. Also, layout tweaks are hard to devise or test for me because of the aforementioned lack of testing devices.
