The other day, out of curiosity, I accessed my blog site from my mobile phone, and found that I can read all the posts there! Apparently, even the sites originally intended to the PC viewers can be converted and displayed for the mobile phone users through the use of technology that the US company Google offers for nothing. From my ‘au’ moible phone, everything can be accessed. I would be grateful if the users of other makes of mobile phones can do the same or not.
