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...

Adventures with Android part 2

I have been using my Nexus 5X for around two months now, and even though I swore I would not blog about it I feel compelled to do just that. So far it the experience has been pretty good. I am really enjoying the plethora of apps. Although I never considered myself an “app person” there seems to be some apps like HBONordic that I am using a lot more than I would have imagined. However, it seems to me that the phone is starting to slow down, which is way too early for that to happen. I think more...

Getting help with my Nexus

I reached out to Google on Twitter to get some assistance with the charging issues I experienced with my Nexus 5x. They actually got back to me pretty quickly and even though it didn’t help they still deserve a hat tip. @JesperJuel Uh oh! Let's discuss the next steps over DM, so that we can connect you with a specialist. — Nexus (@googlenexus) May 28, 2016
