Damn you Android

I have been rocking my Nexus 5X for a couple of months now, and so far I have been pretty satisfied with the experience overall. However, I have run into a new a very annoying problem. The damn thing freezes on my at least once a day. Now I know that we are not talking about a high end phone, but I don’t think it’s too much to ask that the damn phone is actually running. In all honesty I a doubly disappointed, since I am running stock Android, which is supposedly the greatest experience Google has to offer. I...

I really want to quit Twitter

I have been enjoying Twitter for a couple years now. I prefer to it to the brain dead Facebook experience as I have always used it as a news reader. However, Twitter is quickly becoming a forum for “alternative facts” and racial slurs. The Turkish flag banner remains on some accounts where the #Nazialmanya and #Nazihollanda tweets have been removed https://t.co/gPEYWGTihA pic.twitter.com/FYOSvnKAwC — Gizmodo (@Gizmodo) March 15, 2017 Now, I am not advocating censorship here, but we are experiencing serious abuse here, and Twitter has, in my opinion, not been able to create functionality that gives the user an idea...

Getting my SAFe on

One could argue that I work in a large organization. Granted, it is not large like Apple or Google is large, but by Danish standards it is pretty big. Much like our competitors in the financial sector we are moving towards an agile development setup. And to no one’s surprise, there are some challenges that seem to be somewhat pervasive in my neck of the woods. Obviously I can’t really say anything about my current situation, but I should be able to give the broad strokes without violating anything or anybody. Flow is key When it comes to agile setups...

Lost for words

It is no secret that I have been struggling with this blog for a couple of years. Most of the things I have wanted to write are inappropriate outside of work context, and everything else seems like uncritical regurgitation of already published news stories. For a while there, I tried to only post how-to articles, or should I say, bug reports. Every time I ran into a problem, I would publish the solution if I found one. My post about fixing the OneDrive sync engine issues have received a lot of hits WordPress tells me. It is a slightly depressing...

Considering Outlook.com Premium

It’s the weirdest thing. I don’t really send or receive a lot of personal email anymore. Most of my communication goes via Facebook messenger or Google Hangouts; not even Skype is something I use a lot of these days, with the exception of Skype for Business of course. Despite this change in habits, I find myself oddly drawn to Outlook.com Premium. Since I moved to Android I have been considering moving to Gmail, but even though I find that it is fine product I can’t seem to actually do it. And now that I can can use my domain with...

Pixel rumors heat up

Pixel phone listings appear at Carphone Warehouse, offering new shots and more info There’s not a ton of new stuff in this apparent error, but I did notice one thing. SD card support. Android Police seems to think that is not necessarily true, but I for one would really, really like that. So far the Pixel XL looks pretty appealing, but let’s see what Google has to say tomorrow.

New Firbit Charge HR

18 months ago I lost my Fitbit Flex in the airport. At least I think I lost in the airport during a business trip, however, I could theoreticall have lost anywhere. This illustrates by biggest problem with the Flex – the locking mechanism. I lost it a couple of times before, but I always managed to find it again. But not that time. So, when I decided to venture into the wearables category again, I needed something that would not fall off my wrist without me noticing. Enter the Fitbit Charge HR. I am not fully committed to any specific...
