So this seems to be the best iPhone 3g Car Kit I have found so far.  It doesn’t look the sexiest, however, it seems to have everything I would need and no drilling or self adhesive mounting hardware needed — just plug it into the cigarette lighter (12v aux port).

Mavromatic Enhancements – WPtouch iPhone Theme & Clean URLs

May 19, 2009 2 Comments

Mavromatic iphone wordpress template

Lots of behind the scene improvements have happened over the last month here at Mavromatic.  Moved the site over to WordPress from Movable Type, redirected all the old content with 301’s, improved performance with caching and last night I finally changed over to “clean urls”.  This will improve SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and also make it easier if I ever decided to move to another blog platform.

Another enhancement is that if you access Mavromatic via an iPhone/iPod Touch you will see that the format is faster and better suited for the display.  This is made possible by a handy WordPress Plug-in called WPtouch iPhone Theme.   

I hope you continue to enjoy Mavromatic and keep sending in those tips and stories!  Also,  if there is anything you would like me to review please email me (tips -at-  

Until next time, this is Danny Mavromatis for Mavromatic, Over-and-out!
