I’m still blogging

Filed under: blog — Tags: — technofranki @ 20:57

It’s been a while since my last blogpost, not because I’ve stopped blogging, but because I will devote my preciouse time on my Norwegian blog. There will be new posts here, but not as frequently as earlier.

There’s only 24 hours in a day, and I will use some of them to make my Norwegian blog better, since that’s my native langauge.

E3 2010: Microsoft Press Conference

Filed under: blog,E3,Microsoft,videogames,Xbox 360,Xbox Live — Tags: , , , , — technofranki @ 15:37

Microsoft held their press conference on Monday June 14, the day before E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) started.

It was not what I hoped for. They startet with showing trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops, Gears of War 3, Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Halo: Reach and Fable III. And the rest of the show was for their Project Natal, no renamed Kinect.

Kinect is a new pherepial for Xbox 360 which will let you use your body as a controller. It have multiple sensors registrating your movements. It can be described as a cross between Wii and the EyeToy. What they showed, Nintendo did years ago. To me it’s almost the samething, but in a new wrapping. You don’t use a controller, but your body. Under you can se some of the demoes showed at the press conference.

Kinect Sports gives you bowling, ping-pong, track & field, boxing, volleyball and soccer. Very much like Wii Sport.

Kinectimals is a pet simulator ala Nintendogs. 40 types of wild cats are available among lion, tiger, leopard, cheetah, black panther and bobcat cubs.

 With Your Shape Kinetc you can exercise.

They also introduced the new Xbox 360 “Slim”. A smaller Xbox with 250GB harddrive and built-in WiFi. The price is $299 and it’s available now.

Filed under: blog,music — Tags: , — technofranki @ 10:11

a-ha have just had its world premiere on their latest and last singel on Norwegian radio. It’s called Butterfly, Butterfly (the last hurrah) and is written by Paul Waaktaar-Savoy and produced by Martin Terefe.

My first impression is thas this is a good a-ha singel.

You can listen to aha‘Butterfly, Butterfly (the last hurrah)’ HERE. The singel will be available as a digital download from July 5.

Thanks to warnerwall.no, you can now listen to a-ha’s ‘Butterfly, Butterfly (the last hurrah)’ in the clip under.

Apple iPhone 4

Filed under: blog,technology — Tags: , , , , — technofranki @ 22:51

Steve Jobs presentet Apples new iPhone 4 at the WWDC 2010. The new iPhone with iOS 4 looks good and have great specs, and even smaller than the iPhone 3GS.

Some of the specs:

  • Video recording, HD (720p) @ 30 fps
  • 5-megapixel still camera
  • 960-by-640-pixel resolution at 326 ppi
  • Retina display
  • Sensors: Three-axis gyro, Accelerometer, Proximity sensor and Ambient light sensor
  • 16GB or 32GB flash drive

For more specs, check Apple.com. Apple have done well with the previously versions of the iPhone and with the updated specs, I think the new version will sell real well too. In USA the iPhone will cost you $599 (16GB) and $699 (32GB) with a AT/T contract, available from June 24.

Not everything went well on Steve Jobs presentation. The iPhone wouldn’t connect to the Internet since there was so many WiFi users in the same room. You can watch that YouTube clip bellow. To watch Jobs complete keynote at WWDC 2010, goto Apple.com.

The video under shows Apple iPhone 4 Design Video.
