Will there actually be an iPad 3 in 2012?

I´m willing to put a dime on that there will be no iPad 3 in 2012. Never mind the omg-there-will-be-two-ipads-next-launch rumor. Think of more that iPad 3 probably will come in late 2012 or 2013. If we´re looking on how Apple has done the iPhone the last couple of years, its really easy to see […]

Why Apple´s earbuds suck

Ha, you probably thought this post was dedicated to how much Apples standard earbuds suck. Well, I gotta disappoint you. The positive thing in this though is that I´ve figured out why they suck – or at least I think I have. Isn’t it weird that Steve Jobs, a self proclaimed music lover, would allow […]

Twitter and Facebook needs Siris API

With Apples new addition to the iPhone lineup, Siri has by far been their driver for sales. This makes me think of apps that actually can benefit the API. A lot of apps can use it, but two it´s probably close on a rise. Twitter and Facebook – It´s a given – but they would […]

I´ve lost a friend

Today, I lost a friend.   It´s hard to put words on something that you thought (or wished) would never happen. I´ve starred on this document, blindly, trying to figure out what to write. But when it comes down to it all: what do you write about when you lost a friend. Sometimes you don’t […]

The iPhone 4S is a good update

With the iPhone 4S being released yesterday, a huge wave of critics rose up saying that it was a bad upgrade. Really? When you add up all the rumors you get, pick out the cool stuff that you wish for and then convince yourself that it´s happen – you will get disappointed. But when you […]

Thank you, Diggnation

The title may signify that someone died,  but luckily it´s not that dramatic. Today Diggnation announced that they will end their awesome podcast in december. Though totally understandable, it´s sad sad news for all of us fans. I´ve gotta say that 7 years is a pretty good run for a web series. They are a […]

What will happen to the iPod?

In the year of streaming, one might wonder what will happen to the iPod line when Apple holds it´s iPhone event October 4th. It´s not a new phoneme with «death of iPod» speculations. The iPod Classic has been the favorite dead-gadget-walking victim the last couple of years, but with the music industry changing as it […]

Will iChat be Apple´s new contact hub?

It´s not a chocker, but there is lots of rumors summing around iMessage being added to OS X shortly after iOS 5 comes out this october. So will this mean that iChat will be the complete hub for contacting on the Mac? I imagine so. When iMessage was introduced in june it gave users the […]

Why YouTube is better then Vimeo for podcasts

Some of you may know my podcast loveapple TV. Since the very start, expect one or two episodes, I hosted the series on Vimeo. Now 33 episodes later, I´ve moved back to YouTube. This has set the minds of many great people in bends of why I would do such a thing. To start off, […]

Twitter Search is so broken

I´m a pretty avid user of Twitters advances search. I like that it let´s me narrow the search down to specific words like «apple, mac, iphone, fcp» and users 100 miles around Oslo. The only problem is that it´s so massively broken. It would make sense that when Twitter bought Summize in 2008 (now Twitter […]
