Eurovision 2010 – Eurocraze in Oslo Norway

Eurovision is upon us once again. Lot’s of craze about, well, what? Let’s face it, the music from the Eurovision Song Contest is always 99% rubbish. It’s one giant freakshow of so-called European nations, worse even than MTV these days. However, we can’t dismiss the Eurovision SC completly, for one good reason: it’s comical value.

There are some funny videos here I will admit, Eurovision Videos

Icelandic travel guide and cheap flights finder

So finally going for that long trip to Iceland, but still feel like I’m missing out on some good deals. Expedia doesn’t seem to cover Iceland very well for some reason. And the same goes for it’s peers. Searching for national price comparison companies on Iceland I only came up with this even though I would think there were more out there, or maybe Iceland is too smal for such companies to exist?

Anyone from Iceland out there who can show me some other price comparison companies and guides and such?

Google Street View car chased by frogmen in Bergen, Norway

Google Street View was finally launched in Norway this week, and some surprises were expected. But perhaps not any expectations to see the Google Street View car chased by fully dressed frogmen on the streets of Bergen Norway?
Nevertheless, there they are.

Apple unveils iPad tablet device
Apple has put an end to weeks of speculation by unveiling its tablet device, which it has called the iPad.

Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive unveiled the touchscreen device at an event in San Francisco.

Mr Jobs described the tablet, which will cost between $499 and $829 in the US, as a “third category” between smartphones and laptops.

The device, which looks like a large iPhone, can be used to watch films, play games and browse the web.

The firm has also done a deal with publishers including Penguin, Macmillan and Harper Collins to allow e-books to be downloaded directly to the device through a new iBook Store.

“You can download right onto your iPad,” said Mr Jobs.

He also showed off magazines and newspapers on the device.

‘Gold rush’

He told an audience of journalists, analysts and industry peers that the device lets people “hold the whole web in your hands”.

“What this device does is extraordinary. It is the best browsing experience you have ever had,” he said.

The device has a 9.7-inch multi-touch display, allowing people to type directly on to the screen, as well as manipulate pictures and control the action in games with their fingers. However, users can also plug in a keyboard.

Apple claim it has a battery life of 10 hours.

It comes preloaded with twelve applications – essentially multi-touch versions of existing Mac software such as iPhoto.

However, owners can also download third party apps – both specially designed for the iPad and those already available for the iPhone. People with both can synchronise their apps between the two devices.

“We think it’s going to be a whole other gold rush for developers,” said Scott Forstall, who runs Apple’s app division.

Apple revealed that more than three billion apps have been downloaded from its App store.

The New York Times showed off its app for the iPad, which recreates the look and feel of the newspaper but allows it to have new features, such as video.

“We’re pioneering the next version of digital journalism,” said Martin Nisenholtz, a senior executive at the newspaper.

It also includes the firm’s iTunes software built in, allowing people to purchase songs and movies straight to the device.

‘Cheap laptops’

It is not the first touchscreen tablet computer on the market. Earlier this month, manufacturers such as Dell and HP showed off devices at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Some industry experts have questioned the need for another category of device, alongside laptops, smartphones and netbooks.

Analyst firm CCS Insight said that it remained “sceptical” of the market. It described the iPad as “a supersize iPod Touch that would get little interest if not from Apple”.

Mr Jobs dismissed netbooks as “just cheap laptops”.

“Netbooks aren’t better at anything – they’re slow and have low quality displays,” he told the audience.

“They’re not a third category device, but we have something that we think is.”

The cheapest iPad, which will come with 16GB of flash memory and wi-fi will cost $499. The most expensive version, with 64GB of storage and the ability to connect via a mobile 3G signal, will cost $829.

Users will also need a monthly subscription for 3G connectivity, but in the US owners will not have to sign a yearly contract.

CCS Insight said the high cost would put it “beyond most consumers”.

Mr Jobs said that he hoped to have international prices in place in June or July.

However, all the 3G models are unlocked, meaning they will work with any network.

The launch puts to rest months of speculation and rumour in the blogosphere.

Apple – famous for its secrecy – had remained silent in the run up to the launch, unwilling to release any details publicly.

Pat Robertson says Haiti deserved it’s deaths.

Pat Robertson, famous millionaire, war lover, and demagogue, has done it again. Even if we are only 14 days into the new year, the demagogue has won the 2010 award as the most selfish and unsympathetic bastard alive, by stating that Haiti deserves the death and catastrophe it is experiencing. Simultaneously he may win the 2010 award for insanity, although he is still in ties with Sean Hannity on that one.
http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/01/13/haiti.pat.robertson/index.html?

It is time for everyone to react to this outrageous statement by that inhuman creep we have pestering the earth. Do your moral duty and let Robertson have it!

Mr Bean replaces Spanish PM on EU presidency site

Visitors to Spain’s EU presidency website have been greeted by an image of hapless fictional character Mr Bean instead of Spain’s Socialist leader.

Mr Bean

An unidentified hacker briefly hijacked the site on Monday, replacing Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero with that of a bumbling comedy buffoon.

In Spain, the similarity between Mr Zapatero and the Mr Bean actor Rowan Atkinson, is a long-standing joke.

The government said the site itself, http://www.eu2010.es, had not been attacked.

In a statement, it said that a hacker had taken a screenshot of the homepage to make a photo montage.

“The alleged attack exploited a vulnerability called cross-site scripting,” it said.

For most visitors, this meant that a smiling Mr Bean replaced Mr Zapatero, complete with a benign smile and the words “Hi there”.

In a recent edition of El Pais, Mr Zapatero was depicted as Mr Bean in a cartoon above an article that was highly critical of his handling of the economy in Spain, where unemployment has reached almost 20%.

Route planner for free for all of Europe.

Route planner, routeplanners, road planners, whatever they are called, don’t you just love them? Google anounced the “death of GPS” map software last year when they said they would add GPS services to their own maps in 2010. I know the route planner from Google covers the entire world, but from the people I have spoken to it’s been unclear if the GPS services will cover countries outside Europe, USA, and some parts of Asia at launch.
