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

Adventures with Android

I have finally left Windows Mobile. It took a little while but eventually I started to feel a little left out because of the app gap and because of the limited develoment put into the OS. I chose Android because it came highly recommended and because I am not too comfortable investing my pension saving in Apple products. They are nice and all, but I don’t want to be tied down to one platform and I don’t want devices that are so expensive I am afraid to use them. Moving to Android has been an experience alright. I have had...

My new Nexus 5X won’t charge

So, I finally got my Nexus 5X on Friday. Being a happy camper I get started right away and everything looks and works great. Battery is at 74% so I plug in that bad boy using the USB-C cable in the box. In no time the battery goes to 82% and the phone even displays a little notification about rapid charging. Great. Then Google tells me there’s a software update to Android 6.0.1. I happily accept and the phones updates. Great, I am now running the latest and greates Android has to offer. Imagine my surpise though when I realize...

Fix Outlook.com birthday calendar

I have ben really annoyed with the Outlook.com birthday calandar becase it has a lot of double or even triple posts. Well, I found a quick fix. Just delete the birthday calendar and the add it again. This will make Outlook.com rebuild your birthday calendar based on your addressbook.   I have had a whole bunch of services connected to my email, which made my birthday calendar have many double entries. I have since removed these connections but the calendar entries persisted. Now, having gone through the steps mentioned above, I now have a new and actually useful birthday calendar....

White labeling my blog

I have finally abadonned the WordPress theme I ahve been using for many years. I have replaced it with Syntax, which is a nice white and minimalistic theme. I am doing to this because I am unsure of what to do with this blog since it is a waste of money to maintain the hosting if I don’t use it. Having a white theme is like having a clean canvas. I hope I will find some inspiration and come up with something clever.
