Mostly gadgets and geek stuff.

I’m looking for a new pair of active speakers to be used with my TV. 

Should we buy the:

Or something else? They must look good and produce pretty much as good sound as you get without having a proper HiFi-system.

I’m going to use them with my TV and to stream music through Chromecast (via the TV).


After walking around for over three years with the huge and heavy Lenovo ThinkPad T520, I’m finally getting a new PC for my day job at Steria.

We can choose between a huge and powerful “developer PC”, or an ultrabook, the Dell Latitude E7240. I chose the latter one, and it arrived on Friday while I was in Amsterdam. I’m picking it up from internal IT first thing tomorrow morning, can’t wait :-)

Some specs

  • 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-4300U Processor (1.9 GHz, 3M Cache)
  • Intel® Integrated HD 4400 Graphics
  • 16GB 1600MHz DDR3L Memory
  • 256GB Mobility Solid State Drive
  • 12.5” HD (1366x768) Anti-Glare WLED-backlit
  • Windows 8.1 64bit

It’s not the most sexy laptop ever, but it’s very portable and has decent specs, especially since I could upgrade to 16GB of RAM. And I really don’t like Windows 8.1, but hopefully the Windows 10 Preview will become stable enough soon to upgrade.



Apple just released a new Mac OS, and we made a Tumblr app especially for it. What’s the app do?

  1. It lets you post to Tumblr from almost anywhere on your Mac. If a window has a share button, you can share the things in that window to Tumblr. Got a photo lying around on your desktop? Throw it right onto your blog with a couple of mouse clicks. 
  2. It’s also a browser that goes to Tumblr and only to Tumblr. The rest of the internet? Don’t worry about it. You’re not missing anything.

That’s it. Nice, simple little app. Download it.

(And, hey, looks like some of you already made fan art for it.)


The Sony MDR-ZX550BN bluetooth headset with noise cancelling landed on my desk today.

"Unfortunately" I’m in Amsterdam this week, so I won’t be able to pick them up until Monday. But I’m really looking forward to see what Sony has come up with, as these babies are actually quite cheap.

Look out for a review at, probably sometime in the last week of October. 


The new 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display has four times as many pixels as the standard 27‑inch iMac display.

Yes, please. I want it!

Truecaller  adds real time caller ID, as the first for Windows Phone.

The update requires the newest update of Network+, so it may possibly only work on Nokia Lumia devices.


Google has finally announced Nexus 6. Motorola will manufacture the phone, no surprise there. 

I want this phone!

Camera: 13MP rear-facing with optical image stabilization
Front Camera: 2MP front-facing

According to International Business Times (IBTimes), Sons of Anarchy season 6 will premiere on Netflix on the 25th of October.

I hope they are right! I’ve been waiting for this too long now, I almost considered taking a trip to Pirate Bay ;-)

The ASUS C300 Chromebook is coming to Norway. It’s not the original with low specs either, it’s the version with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage.

In black I have to say it’s one of the best looking Chromebooks out there. Maybe this is my next Chromebook? 

Nah… what I really would like is a good looking 11 inch Chromebook with the best specs. I haven’t found that yet :-(
