Stockholm

stockAne and I went to Stockholm not too long ago to spend a weekend in the Swedish capital. We wanted to get some summer holiday before “King Winter” stands on our doorstep. Especially since we haven’t really had any vacation this summer. Clarion Hotel Sign was the hotel we ended up staying at, apparently one of the biggest hotels in the city. Read more »

Family + Spotify = ?

spotI guess we all can agree that streaming entertainment is not something that will disappear. Whether we talk about streaming music, games or movies. In today’s market you find software such as Voddler for movies, Wimp and Spotify for music and play-on demand for games. Are the consumer willing to pay for all these services? Read more »

Busy schedule

kingIt’s been busy days and I’ve not had much time to do anything besides working and focusing on things at home. Which is a good thing as it makes me occupied. Last week my brother was staying over at our house and he made one hell of a meal (pardon my language). Read more »

Back on track

We’re back on track with the page. Jonas Fredin did some magic and the upload feature from Flickr works as intended. Still got some work left to do with the different features that I’ve been talking about. Such as the “like” feature on the different pictures. But we’re taking babysteps. Most critical issue at hand was the fact that Flickr and my site stopped talking to each other. So.. expect some new pictures to be coming to the site in the near future.

Guests

Gift to your boyfriend?

So I was reading this magazine for Sound and Picture when i discovered this “small” toy. If you ever wonder about what to give your boyfriend who has everything. Why not buy him a Numark iDJ Consoll? The only thing this hardware is missing is support for Spotify. Now there you have a business idea for Spotify as well. A DJ subscription which gives the user support for playing two tracks at the same time with queues. Read more »

Monday blues

It’s Monday and I’m having difficulties not thinking about the upcoming trip to Saalbach Hinterglemm. Yes, we’re getting close to week 5 and our yearly trip to Austria. We have an all time high when it comes to participants and it’s counting 13 in all. Last one jumping on the “wagon” was Magnus who bought his ticket on Friday. No one saw that coming. Read more »

TGIF – as in Thank God It’s Friday

Indeed it is and we like it. I got the whole weekend planned and it will be Monday before I even know it. That’s the bad thing about weekends. They tend to fly faster than it arrived. Enough mumbo jumbo. I figured I should mention on my own page that the cat is out of the bag. Read more »

Mountain of Madness

Mark the day for it was Friday 13th that 17 men from the west coast and one lost soul from Oslo decided to climb the mountain of madness. We rented two cabins, and our plan was to eat, drink and go skiing (downhill). Cross country ain’t our cup of tea. Read more »

Dark Days are Coming

TemplarsI’m completing the circle and I’ll be heading “home” in not too long. It’s been a fun journey and I have learned a lot, I’ve met many very talented people and it’s with mixed feelings that I now move on. But I also realized that this was the right thing to do.. So.. Dark Days are Coming!

Nikon D4

Nikon Rumors droppet nettopp en “nyhetsbombe” i fanget på de fleste som følger litt med på siden. I dag kunne de informere de sultne fotografer at de hadde fått tak i en artikkel som i utgangspunktet hadde en lanseringsdato, 10 januar 2012. Read more »

Nikon annonserer

Det går rykter om produktlansering nå førstkommende fredag. Blir spennende å se hvilke produkt som annonseres, men alt indikerer på at det blir den nye D4. Nikon Rumors har lansert et bilde av det som skal være det nye kamera. Ja, så gjenstår det å se om dette er falske bilder eller reelt. Selv venter jeg i spenning på annonseringen av arvtakeren til D700, nemlig D800.

Fotomagasinet

Det er nylig blitt lansert en ny nettside for fotointeresserte. Skal bli spennende å se utviklingen på denne siden. Personlig mener jeg dette absolutt dekker et savn da jeg ikke har sett noe tilsvarende løsning for det norske markedet. Det hjelper jo også at dette er mennesker som jobber hos Foto&Video, kanskje norges svar på B&H som man finner i New York. Det blir i hvertfall en nettside jeg skal holde et lite øye med for å se hvordan det utvikler seg.
