40 Days of NBA Playoffs

NBA Playoffs 2008

We’re only six days into the NBA playoffs, and already the games have run the full gamut of blowouts to nail biters. Anyone lucky enough to see the Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs play their first game witnessed the latter. Buzzer beaters, hard fouls, high scores – all the things that you want when watching a game.

While you’re on-the-go, check out the NBA’s easy-to-use mobile site that enables you to keep up with scores, schedules, and news about all 16 teams throughout the 40-day playoffs. So kick back and enjoy the intensity that these games offer, and keep up with all the news on the games you missed.

As a side note, this year’s playoffs feature an unprecedented number of NBA superstars including Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Chris Paul, Kevin Garnett, Dwight Howard, Tracy McGrady, Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash, and Tim Duncan. Get wallpapers of these superstars and more at


Baseball is Back!

MLB is BackSpring is here. After a long snow-filled winter, we welcome the warmer weather, budding flowers, green lawns, and the return of baseball. As American as cherry pie, baseball is one of those sports you can’t help but love.

For those of you who follow Major League Baseball, check out our Channels page. We have mobile content for over 30 of the league’s premier teams at your fingertips. Download wallpapers, at-bat ringtones, or sign up to receive in-game alerts from your favorite team. If you head to a game this spring, be sure to check the game-day weather forecast before leaving the house without a jacket (or umbrella for those pesky rain delays). Stuck at work during a day game? No worries – subscribe to MLB’s Gameday Audio Service and listen from your desk.

We also have some fun stuff for those of you hitting the little league fields on Saturday mornings. A Baseball Tracker for Blackberry allows little league parents and coaches to track multiple players batting averages while sitting at the game. Instructional videos are also available on the site, including a demo on “Working the Fence” in the outfield.

However you enjoy the game this spring, have fun and don’t be shy about ordering that hotdog. Go Red Sox!

Mobile Phone Wallpapers

On the Internet, you can easily share photos with friends, family, and the world. However, even if you have a brand new mobile phone, finding and downloading a photo of your friend, that beach you want to vacation on, or a wallpaper of your home sports team is far from easy. It doesn’t need to be the case.


In addition to the wide range of premium wallpapers from our partners, we have just added a great range of pictures from the public domain and pictures available under Creative Commons licenses. You can find this content on our site by searching on a topic or simply looking for free wallpapers. Just click on “Send to a mobile”, enter your number, and you can get the picture onto your phone. You can also upload your own photos and share them with friends, family, or the world.

In the future, we’d like to extend this and create a feature for Flickr in which you enter a search term and get an up-to-the-minute list of pictures using the Flickr API. In fact, we’re working with Flickr to make that happen. Note that this includes only pictures that have explicitly been made available by the photographer under the relevant Creative Commons licenses. In addition, we’ll highlight the most popular content, so you really can get great wallpapers onto your phone.

Another idea we are exploring is offering a service where photographers can sell their photos as phone wallpaper. We’d provide the service, make it really easy to use, and then share the proceeds with the original author – please tell us what you think?
