I found this video from the interactive prototype Room-E on the 72U project blog. It’s a prototype showing what will be possible in the near future when you think about a more responsive environment. “The future of the computer is to essentially make it disappear—a disconnected interface, so the house or the office or the […]

Jean-Louis Gassée brought up an interesting challenge or issue with regards to the current hype around the Internet of Things: If we can’t solve the “basket of remotes” problem, how can we expect a home full of “smart” objects? #ibmceschat — Jean-Louis Gassée (@gassee) January 10, 2014 It’s actually a very simple thought when you […]

Seriously, is it? This might sound like a strange question from a technology early adopter and yet I believe this is a valid question. I realize that technology is actually fueling growth, opening up new opportunities and markets, giving access to consumers that were previously out of reach. It’s at the base of many new […]

For about 10 days now I switched my iPad for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to see how they compare – thanks to Belgacom. First things first, this is the first version of the 10.1 (now renamed to 10.1v), there’s a newer one coming on the market that has the same name but is slightly […]

Think about the EPG, easier recording, movie rental, … Interactivity. Push the red/blue/whatever-color button and you will get a richer experience The […]

Well at least that’s what I think it does. When I first read about this Firefox/Chrome plugin I thought it would be something similar to Weblin, a service I blogged about in 2007. Luckily it’s not the same. For one Weblin wasn’t as cool and interesting as I first thought and is in de deadpool […]

I picked up my copy of Office 2010 on Friday (was still on the beta which was about to expire) and decided to do a full clean install instead of just re-installing Office. Here’s an overview of all the stuff I installed, do you think there’s a piece of software I’m absolutely missing? Windows 7 […]

I have now 72 tabs open in Chrome. I don’t do it on purpose, it’s just how it is. All tabs have sites open, stuff I want to read but didn’t get to yet, etc… And now I might just have found the solution to organize all of those tabs a bit better, it’s called […]
