Joey server allow you to pass data from your Firefox browser to cell phone.
Joey is a server, Firefox add-on, and java midlet that allow you to pass data from your Firefox browser to cell phone.
The objective of this effort is to provide a virtual cloud allowing Mozilla users to upload content from the browser to a server and finally be able to access the the content from a phone or other mobile device. The server may do fetching, processing, transcoding, etc of content to ensure that it is in the right format for the mobile client.
Examples of this:
* Provide useful meta data (e.g. text clippings, saved photos, some subset of microsummaries) to a Firefox user via their mobile phone
* Allow users to examine and manage this meta data from within Firefox
* Allow third party developers to build add-ons taking advantage of this system.
