Cingular Wireless customers will now be able to screw around on their MySpace accounts right from their cellphones. Sure, you've been able to do this for a while now on Helio cellphones, but Cingular likes to pretend that this is some sort of groundbreaking announcement. Users will even be able to take pictures with their cellphones and upload the pics directly to MySpace. Simply amazing.

Be ready to part with $3 per month for the dedicated MySpace app, in addition to data usage costs, just to be able to post on your buddy's account, "dude, I can't believe how drunk we got last night." A big deal? Meh, so the two companies would like us to believe.

If you cellphone was a general purpose computing device... You could you know, just use the browser.

A dedicated application to view something that's on the web seems a little silly... Yeah myspace pages don't fit so well on a 2" screen, but that's something that you solve with css.
