Two new shortcuts to talk about today - the new USPS Mobile, and The Weather Channel application for webOS. Realizing the predominance of internet use on today's wireless devices, the USPS has launched a mobile version of their website. Found at m.usps.com, you can track your packages, find various post office locations, locate a ZIP code, find cities based on their respective ZIP codes, and learn more about USPS. What's more, rumors point to a potential BlackBerry and iPhone app in the future, complete with GPS features.
