Thought I would share this. Not the strongest northern lights, but pretty strong for where we live.
Interesting piece on Google rankings by Rand Fishkin
The anticipated iPhone 5 has been expected to be released late summer 2011, today its the 20th of september and we still have not heard a word about any release date.
The rumors has been going that the iPhone 5 would be released in september, but that is not going to happen. New rumors now point to a release in the middle of october. For that to happen the announcement would have to happen very soon.
When do you think we will get to see the new iPhone 5? Or do you think the next update will be a speed update (such as the 3GS).
iPhone: June 29th 2007
iPhone 3G: July 11th 2008
iPhone 3GS: June 19th 2009
iPhone 4: June 24th 2010
If you still have me in your RSS-feed you are a patient soul. Its been almost 2 years and 2 months since I have posted on this blog.
One reason is the lack of time, another is the lack of a functioning system to blog on. I had been using Movable Type since 2002. It started out nice, but has gotten old as time has moved along. So today the blog has been moved to WordPress, latest version and using their latest theme.
It will give me easier ways to blog in english. My norwegian blog has been up and running on WordPress a long time now.
I will be blogging about technology, the net and gadgets. Most probably about WordPress, PHP, databases, Apple products, and all other things I have fun with on a day to day basis.
Another reason for starting up my english blog again is that I will be moving to the other side of the planet – that is to say, to New Zealand within a year or two. So this blog will also be filled with stories about how that move goes. I hope you come along for the journey.
If you wonder what theme I am using, I can tell you I am using WordPress Twentyeleven (Default theme with WordPress 3.2.1) and the child theme NonNom - I will be telling you more about my favorite themes and plugins in future blogposts, so get subscribed if you aren’t already.
Just submitted this bug report to Apple regarding their serious management and policy problem regarding iPhone application submissions to the AppStore.
For more on this story, ready Gizmondo: Apple’s Chickenshit Approval Process Has Gone Too Far and There’s no app for that. and for some comic relief in the mist of it all: Oops, @MarissaMayer Deletes Sensitive Tweet That Can Still Be Found. A really good and insightful article about the possible fallout and consequences of the AppStore approval scandal: Bad Apple: An Argument Against Buying an iPhone (Lifehacker)
There seem to be a bug on management level within your company. Pulling apps that uses Google Voice (and not allowing for the Google Voice app from Google) and not allowing for Google Latitude native app speaks to something terribly wrong with your app approving process.
I have been a fan of iPhone since the first version, I own both the first and second version of the phone and was looking forward to iPhone 3 GS launching in Norway. Now I am considering wether to continue being an Apple customer. I am a satisfied Apple customer that with a steady regularity buys software and hardware from your company, including a Macbook Pro, a Macook, a Airport Extreme etc. Your actions in the iPhone apps area has me considering not continuing my support for your company and products in the future. It just tastes too darn bad. I am sure I am not alone in feeling this way.
I really think you have made one serious mistake in not allowing the Google apps to be taken into the App store, and that includes third party developers. I think you are doing a huge disfavor to your customers and ultimately to your own company behaving the way you have in this case.
I am sure this will just be ignored. So I will make sure to blog it and spread it to all my Twitter contacts and in turn ask them to spread the news onwards.
Hope the bugs in management and policy will be fixed soon.
My friend Arjan has finally got himself a blog. Congrats Arjan. Will be interesting to see what he writes about. Arjan is a developer and instructor with focus on .Net. Check out his blog starting up at blog.einbu.no
Congratulations. May at least 4 years with Obama be enough to undo the wrongs that have been done to your country through 8 years of George W. Bush.
I really don’t get the big problem with Obamas comment about people being frustrated and bitter. Middle and lower classes in the US sure has a lot to be frustrated and bitter about, as far as I can tell.
Former US labor minister Robert Reich has put his two cents into the discussion.
Are Americans who have been left behind frustrated? Of course. And their frustrations, their anger and, yes, sometimes their bitterness, have been used since then — by demagogues, by nationalists and xenophobes, by radical conservatives, by political nuts and fanatical fruitcakes
