  • What’s in a name

    After Apple CEO Tim Cook announced their newest offering of iPhone, it was immediately clear that fans and commentators alike were disappointed that he did not announce the iPhone 5. My question is simply, “Why?”   First of all, Apple do not conform to usual naming conventions, which is exemplified by the fact that their […]

  • Survival – how news media should adapt to a challenging present

    Over the last ten years, I have been an active consumer of online news media. This has cost me nothing, simply because the online news outlets I read are financed by ads. According to Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corporation, this trend must change if news media are to survive. While I think that his […]

  • My number one wanted feature on Android

    Lately, I have been writing quite a bit about features I’d like to see on my iPad. I do also have an Android phone (my second one, as a matter of fact), and, while it usually does most of what I want, there is one feature which is not built into it – screenshots.   […]

  • Give me one bar, make it do more!

    I have said it once, and I’ll say it again; I love my iPad. It’s light-weight, instant-on and, most importantly, for the most part, it just works.

As we approach christmas and New Year’s eve of 2010, I can’t help but feel nostalgic. It will be my last christmas as an employee at Orkla Shared Services, and come January 3rd, I […]

  • Give me my rotation lock switch back!

  • Why I blog

    I have been blogging for a long time now, and am very likely to continue doing so. I have my own domain, and prefer that to using one of the many, many blogging sites out there. This blog is the one that gets the most updates and attention from me, for a few reasons;   […]

  • Mobile multitasking – Android versus iOS

    The two main contenders in the mobile OS world today have two vastly different approaches to multitasking. Both have merits, and potential drawbacks. Let’s have a look:  

  • The iPad reviewed

    First off, I know I said I wasn’t going to get an iPad. That decision was based on the hype and buzz about it, after laying hands on one myself, though, I’ve got to say I was simply wrong. Probably not about my concerns, as I still feel they are valid, but about my decision […]
