The Audioblogger service, which lets you "call your blog" and leave audio messages that become audio blog-posts, will cease on November 1.
If you've already created MP3 posts that way, they'll still work, but you can't create new audio posts with the service. Odeo runs the service, and a message to users said that resource limitations led to its closure. Other services offer similar tools, though. Snip:
Gabcast.com is a free service for recording by phone.
Hipcast.com has a seven day free trial and lots of features.
Gcast.com is another free service for phone recording.
All of the phone posting services listed above are compatible
with Odeo in that they produce podcast feeds, which can be
imported to Odeo. Any audio file at Odeo can be posted on a blog
by copying and pasting some embed code.
I used Audioblogger a lot for a while, right around the time when the service was first released. One of the projects I used it for was a warblog in which the blogger phoned in messages from a satphone, while traveling through war zones. I experimented with it from more comfortable locations, too, including some geek events in LA. It was a neat idea, and I can imagine ways that such a service could still be used to create really interesting stuff online. Maybe I'll try some of the suggested successors.

In this footage, a supercomputer’s CPU cores — nearly 900 of them — are neatly lined up in the Task Manager. The Doom logo appears, generated by code that targets each core. Then Doom itself plays, each “pixel” generated by thrashing a core with just the right amount of busy work. Max Holt: Finally got […]
If you want swole arms cut like tree trunks, you start savaging the curl bars. If you want to sculpt a tight, firm core, you have lots of planking and bridges in your future. So what do you do if you want to knock out that double chin? Or put a little added definition into […]
Considering the state of our world, it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise to find lots and lots of people pushed to their breaking point. Anxiety and stress are often constant companions during the best of times. But now, with fear and frustration running rampant, it’s easy to be subsumed by all the distractions and […]
Most of us aren’t constantly beset by poor posture. But all it takes is some subtle misalignment while you’re doing serious hours behind the wheel driving or working away at a desk to do a real number on your back. In fact, most of us are so unaware of the mechanics of good posture that […]
