In a June 19, 2008, story in the New York Times, Bob Tedeschi describes a new on-line service that allows travelers to post stock photos and text from their cellphones to on-line travel journals. Here’s his description of the service:
Travelers too lazy or too enthralled by their journeys to keep comprehensive journals will soon be able to outsource the job to their cellphones. Telestial, an international cellphone network, plans to introduce a service in August that tracks your travels and posts (to your private Web page) stock photos of everywhere you’ve been. Then while you’re sitting on the runway waiting for takeoff, you can post entries on your online travel journal via text message. The service is included in the price of Telestial’s international phone packages or SIM cards.
