DNS Troubles

A couple of days ago MobJet.com experienced some down time due to a DNS failure at the domain service level. This outage appears to have been a problem for many people and caused quite a stir on the Internet. Unfortunately, MobJet was affected by this problem as well. To read more about the outage, check out this TechCrunch article.

Everything is up and running today, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

MobJet is Big in Japan

We made it. The MobJet development team spent the last week in Japan preparing for a splash on the Japanese scene. After a sleepless night working in cramped hotel rooms in Kayabacho, near the financial district of Tokyo, the team pushed final changes to MobJet for a presentation in front of 2,000 Japanese.



With servers scaled and ready to handle posts from the 2,000 simultaneous posts to post@mobjet.jp, things went off without a hitch. The crowd took pictures from their mobile phones and instantly posted to MobJet. As a team we're excited for tomorrow where we're off to meet current and potential investors to tell them about our success in Japan.

MobJet now works in Japanese. This past week or so, we launched the MobJet domain for Japan - www.mobjet.jp. Japanese users can now send their posts to post@mobjet.jp and follow users by emailing get@mobjet.jp. We're working to add additional language features as well as additional languages very soon.
