Improve the iPhone usabillity
1. Phonebook: Favorites
Ther iPhone relies heavily on icons, though the "Favorites" tab under "Contacts" does not. It is a normal text list:
Using the Contacts photos would be much easier and allows for my contacts without scrolling. The application "My Phone Plus For Facebook" has done this already, displaying 9 contacts as opposed to the current 8:
However making the icons the same size as the rest of the iPhone's icons would give a total of 16 favorites (considering I have several hundred contacts, 16 is not that many..:)
2. Many applications installed gives loads of scrolling
If you are like me, then you have many apps installed. This means right scrolling and scrolling the screen to the right. Vertical scrolling has though not been used:
Small circles could indicate where one is:
3. Most of my contacts have birthdays noted in the phonebook.
Why isn't this info linked up to the calendar? Or at least one ought to have the option to get notifications of birthdays. (I use fbCal to have birthdays in another calendar on the iPhone, but I tend to forget to look at it. Hence the desire for birthday intergration.
4. Improve battery life A product can be as fantastic as it wants, but when such a basic feature isn't in place, then quite alot falls apart. I mean, if I make it through the day with one charing I am happy. Heavy usage makes it last maybe 7-8 hours. Sorry, MAC. Please improve.

Elliptic shows off the touchless web
Ah, and if you happen to be really interrested in testing it (or just in Amsterdam), meet them at IBC 2009 and try their prototype at the Opera Software booth - 3.C11.
Nothing better than to see a client doing great.

Want your photos to look like Polaroids?
Its an easy 3 click manner to create images like the one you see on the left. Its free too!
One thing Im missing though, is the ability to choose the position and cropping of the photo I'm uploading to the Polaroid template. Hope to see that in their next release.

Freelance designer on a Mac? Check out this applications
I have looked into Billings before, but never really started to use it (never came past the testing stage..), but it seems promising.
One programme I found really interresting was iBiz by IGG Software. You can associate a document to the application and it tracks the time you work on it (or at least have it open). Much better than having a stop watch which one tends to forget stopping.

SkypeIn and SkypeOut on my w810i using Midp/Java
Previously I have mentioned EQO mobile, which works quite well for IP ringing. But IM+ for Skype seems much better! Not only can I phone Skype users and use SkypeOut, but I can also receice Skype calls. Fantastic! Would just love if they could upgrade the Java (Midp 2.0) layout, cause thats not really fancy...
7 days trial, or get the whole for 10 US bucks. Its a deal!

Twitter usage increases in Norway and how to get old mobile phones (ie. w810i) on Twitter
Any-ways, having a blog I mixed that up with Twitter with TwitterFeed (its just really a feed from my blog to my twitter account) and then having the Twitter application in Facebook feeding from Twitter to my Facebook status field, suddenly I have created a little mashup and am so proud!
BUT, I dont own an iPhone, but obviously want to spam everyone with meaningless trivia from my daily life. So what to do? Tata!! I found the solution: Jitter. A tiny free Java application created by Abiro. It works on pretty much any phone supporting MIDlets. Such as my old w810i. Technology is wonderful! Hurrah!

A whole new time! (Neolog´s design watch)
NEOLOG is based on dividing time into intelligible units: Hours, units of ten minutes, and units of one minutes which are arranged in vertical blocks.
It takes a bit getting used to (at least for the first hour of having the watch..:) BUT it is so sexy... Christmas tip of the year I say! (too late for most countries, but if the gifts are given on the Holy 3 Kings Day there is still a chance!)
Check out the site (and order it) http://www.neolog.cc/english/ Ahh... and the site has some widget downloads too :)

Steve and Bill meet again
Quite interesting how those guys are really similar (appearance, computer knowledge, voice etc), yet Steve always is a bit cooler. Just like Macs.. :P

Toll og moms
Mytene om toll og særavgifter er mange, og folks frykt for å dra på seg uventede utgifter hindrer mange fra å bestille seg det de ønsker fra utlandet. Tilfellet er at det er svært få varer som pådrar seg mer enn moms (25%) i dag på grunn av EU, EFTA og andre frihandelsavtaler. Dette gjelder så lenge man ikke handler fra et utviklingsland og at man handler som privatperson. Holder man seg unna varer som alkohol/tobakk, motor/drivstoff og mat/drikke er det sjelden man får noen uventede utgifter. Det viktigste unntaket fra denne reglen er klær og tekstiler som i verste fall kan dra på seg en toll fra 5,9 til 10,7 prosent.
* Forsendelser med verdi under 200 kroner blir verken avgiftbelagt med toll eller moms.
* Bøker kan tas inn uten avgifter uavhengig av verdi. Pass på at det kun er bøker i forsendelsen da blanding av varer kan pådra avgifter på hele forsendelsen.
* Gaver for inntil 1000 kr er moms- og avgiftsfritt. Det eneste som er nødvendig er at den blir merket som gave på dokumentasjonen.
* Ofte har du annledning til å påvirke hvilken frakt som blir brukt når du handler fra utlandet. Hvis du skal ha varer fra USA kan du be om Global Express Mail EMS. Med denne tjenesten slipper du å betale Postens fortollningsgebyr (80kr for varer under 1000kr og 175kr for varer over 1000kr).
Vær oppmerksom på at du må betale toll og momsavgift (25%) når du handler fra nettbutikker i utlandet. Tollavgift på varer under 1000 kroner hos posten er 75 kroner. For varer over 1000 kroner er tollavgiften noe høyere. Noen ganger slipper du å betale tollavgift og moms fordi Posten ikke har kapasitet til å sjekke alle pakningene som kommer inn til landet. Etter vår erfaring blir kun 40-50% av varene sjekket. Noen utenlandske nettbutikker deler også opp forsendingene i flere pakker (pakker under 200 kr.) slik at du slipper tollavgiften.fra: importalen.no
