Changes - some thoughts re. Web CMS Design

Over the course of the next few weeks there will be some new changes to this website. Initially I thought about replacing the entire design, make it more modern so to speak. But I've come to the conclusion that all I need is to include some new functions, and (for now at least) keep the design as is. Certain section here may however change a...

New web project, something (completely) different

Been working on a new project that was launched a couple of days ago. Quite different from most other things I've done, not the least with regards to the web architecture. Good to work with new angles, get a different perspective. In early discussions with the client it quickly became clear that they wanted something modern, a solution with less text and easy reading. A...

Fall came - and Apple fell (flat?)

Sounds about right, ok so the title is somewhat of a joke, again. I said somewhat, not entirely. With Fall 2014 came Apple's new operative system for mobile devices iOS8. Evil tongues claim this must be one the worst iOS updates or versions ever. So bad they had to rapidly release a 8.0.1 version, which they later had to pull back! Are you one of...

"BanIphone"? The future is bendable!

When I first started to read about the new iPhone 6 I certainly didn't think about bananas. That however quickly changed, as reports became to emerge, about it's er.. properties. The press tend to go a little bananas over anything Apple do, or don't do. However this is about a pretty important, expensive and high-end device, something that sooner or later may hurt your wallet,...

Too much online? Maybe NoPhone is the answer

Is it a joke? Could be, but there's an awful lot of information about it to be found on kickstarter.com . Apparently some mean serious business and at the time of writing this blog over USD 6,500 has been pledged of a 30,000 goal. So clearly there's a huge demand for no-tech, offline products these days! What is true however is that in an increasingly...

Every so often your iPad may freeze....

Interestingly it's happened at least twice with my new iPad Air. The old one (Series 2) didn't crash ever, well not that I can recall. Guess that proves to show that with progress comes higher degree of system complexity, and new variables. What happens or happened? Well the thing just freezes, no response, a black screen is all that glares back at you. Fortunately it's...

Adobe Flash is crashing - a solution

Since blogging about my recent browser experiences problem didn't seem to go away. An annoying one too, for Flash is, considered by some, a damnation it would be good to put to rest, for more reasons that I'd care to elaborate on here. However, steadily the situation has improved, whether from a resource or security point of view, and thus Flash remains used widely across...

Backups & updates - yes all the time

Guess I am not the only one out here who, at one time or another, have had experiences with updates that messed things up? Changes applied that (later) lead to unforeseen, if not say unwanted SNAFU's, with the subsequent effect that the only thing to bring back sanity and restore peace is.... a backup? Sometimes even the most innocent looking update can lead to unpleasant...

Browser updates, and what (nuisance) they can bring (back)

Yes, they can. You sit there peacefully, things are working ..well.. ok, then all of a sudden a new browser update is downloaded and automatically installed. The browser restarts, and ..whoa... font rendering SNAFU! This is a lot of gab that eventually might lead to a solution for you as well. you might have to scroll a little bit to get there. Or click this...
