The Rant on iPhone

I’ve added a new feature for Drug WarRant readers who follow the site on mobile devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberry, etc.). You’ll now get a new streamlined version of the site that’s a fast download and very easy to read on those devices.

Don’t worry — if you prefer to get it the usual way on your mobile device, just scroll down to the bottom and make the switch.

I’d love to hear from any mobile users — let me know if it works OK for you. This change shouldn’t have affected anything for regular users (Firefox, Safari, IE, etc. on a computer), so please let me know if, for some reason, you’re getting the mobile version when you shouldn’t.

    The Nokia e71 still shows the site as it normally is. Evidently, your “plug-in doesn’t match all phones. I looked all over my screen for a “toggle” but there is none.

    It’s looking nice on Android 2.0, Pete.

    Posting from an android emulator.. kind of surprised at the timing lol. I was starting to check the site on google reader on my actual phone but this is better

  • Ezrydn,

    Give it a try again. The plug-in is designed to work with:

    android, aspen, blackberry9500, blackberry9530, cupcake, dream, incognito, iphone, ipod, opera mini, webmate, webos

    … but it also has a custom way to add agents (with no guarantee that it’ll work properly), so, based on some other reading online, I’ve added: “nokia, iemobile, symbian” to the list, which may give some additional options for people.

    Let me know if it works.

  • The very first thing you’ll see when after entering Oaksterdam U. is pictures of Families . So you say…………so what……… except the pictures are there for a purpose . These pictures show the Father’s that were once part of the family unit now seperated because of
    ” marijuana crimes “. Below the photos tell a story of why each one was incarcerated , their sentence & in detail tells how several of these men either have killed themselves or have been killed while in prison .
    Their is now no Father .The family has been broken apart .
    How can the Mother work when she takes care of her Children ?
    Furthermore the Children are now worse off than ever before . For what purpose does incarceration serve for what otherwise is a victimless crime ? Cannabis helps rather than it hurts . Yet some of you will say ,
    ” well this man committed a crime & as a result of breaking the law he must pay for his crime ” …………
    and some of you will say ” what about the man who committed murder then he too needs to be free ” . Murder is a crime and he must be prosecuted for his crime but , possessing a plant called Cannabis is not a crime .

    This man did not commit a crime .
    Rather the crime was committed against the man

    Bingo. You said the magic word. The rubber duck came down. Did ya get your $100 bucks? My how times have changed. Yep, it’s working, just as shown on site. Great little addition.

    I’m on android, and I’m getting the option to switch back to regular mode, which is how I prefer to view it on my moble device, but no matter how many times I try it will not switch it back to normal mode on my device. Anyone else having this problem. (it’s just a personal preference but I don’t particularly like “moble formatting” and my device has pretty good resolution thus I prefer regular web formatting on my mobile phone)
