Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Yesterday’s technology, tomorrow!

Published: Friday 2011-09-30.

It is quite fun when a company takes an existing technology, repackages it a tiny bit, apply a few hype-words and release it as something completely new and revolutionising. Like Amazon’s new Silk web browser, which apparently is the best invention since pre-sliced bread. The web browsers are apparently going to be rendered on Amazon’s server, for then to be shown locally on your Kindle. Doesn’t that sound familiar?

[Comment on Slashdot: You're missing the major difference between what Opera did and what Amazon is doing. Opera did the rendering on their own server, while Amazon does it in the cloud. Totally different]
Why Silk is different.
