  • Unlock your iPhone while wearing a mask

  • Mobile multitasking – Android versus iOS

  • The iPad

    Yesterday, Apple announced the long-anticipated, much hyped iPad. Looking like an overgrown iPhone, it sports a 9.7″ screen, with a resolution of 1024×768, multi-touch and your choice of WLAN (all models) 3G (some models) and 16, 32 or 64 GB memory.   A commenter at NRK Beta said it was disappointing that it didn’t have […]
