While Bill Gates is busy making a total fool of himself, Steve Jobs has been thinking about music and DRM. In a (quite unusual) post on Apple.com, named “Thoughts on music“, he shares his thoughts on DRM and the music industry. Like the fact that 90% of all music sold is infact without DRM. It’s [...]
…or the other way around. I applaud Adobe for doing this!! If you have a Windows license of Photoshop, and then switch to Mac OS X, you now can contact Adobe, and get a working serial for OS X. Or the other way around. Excellent! John Nack of Adobe has the good news on his [...]
Ok, so the big news on CNN today is that Beatles will be on iTunes soon. At the same time, BBC reports that the copyright in Britain will NOT be extended: But an independent review is to recommend the terms are not extended, a well-placed government source has said. Gee, let me think. So “Love [...]
Songbird is a new media player for Mac, Windows and Linux, built on the same platform as Firefox. Beta is out now. Looks promising! Wonderful icons and website (let the world be beautiful!). Watch the screencast to have an idea of what it does. I just imported the whole iTunes library. Wicked fast and no [...]
I just bought a iPod Nano and an Nike Sports Kit for it. I’m going to use it for running and bicycling, and I’m thrilled by it already. A full report coming soon! So when I heard about Tangerine, an application that scans my iTunes library and figures out the BPM – Beats Per Minute [...]
52 channels and nothing on? Soon you’ll have millions of channels and the traditional tv-channels will be in BIG trouble. I totally agree with what Eirik writes today: When the internet really starts to shift the flow of money in the media industry we are up for some groundbreaking change… I’m not sure that the [...]
The Phantom of the opera is out of copyright, which means you can do whatever you like with it. Watch it here if you like. Or download it in better quality from Internet Archive (left sidebar). The opening music is the beautiful Symphony No. 8 in B minor by Franz Schubert. Listen to it alone [...]

I’ve just posted a few pics from the Simple Minds concert at Rockfeller Music Hall in Oslo, February 19, 2006. I didn’t take them myself as my T630 camera… well sucks. So these are taken by Kai who has a much better cameraphone. There are five pictures in all. It was a great concert. Ever [...]

This is coolest looking gadget I’ve seen for a long time. The Grundig PSW 5000 is a wireless speaker. Hook up the small unit to your stereo, iPod, computer whatever. And the big one where you want your tunes to be heard. It’s wireless, waterproof and has a “360° surround sound system”, according to the [...]
From the track “Cozy Prison” on a-ha‘s latest album “Analogue”: So if you’re careful You won’t get hurt But if your careful all the time Then what’s it worth? Replace “get hurt” with “lose the game” or “get tired” or “get a ‘no’” or “feel stupid”.
Anders of “Music (for robots)” posts his 79 favorites from the first SXSW torrent. Lots of great music, free for you and your pod.
Depeche Mode played live in Oslo Spektrum today. 8 000 people made it to the venue, trough piles of snow and cold wind here in Oslo. The concert started of a little disappointing.
