If you like The Lord of the Rings then you’re probably already very excited about the two new upcoming movies based on The Hobbit. The official trailer for the first part, An Unexpected Journey, was released yesterday after years of waiting!
Part 1 will be released next year while the last one, There and back again, will hit screens in 2012. Director Peter Jackson has also been posting production videos from the movie set in New Zealand.
Update: Peter Jackson has just released the fifth production video. Once again quite amazing, this time we get to see some of the outdoor locations, including Hobbiton.
After 10 years with Harry Potter I finally got the last movie on Blu-ray and DVD when it was released in Denmark today.
When I look back, I’m so happy and proud to have followed Harry, Ron and Hermione since the first movie was released in 2001. I’ve grown up with the characters and I’ll definitely continue to read the books and watch the films. Who can live without magic?
E! Online posted this little sneak peak from the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. It’s a very sad and moving clip from the last day of filming after 10 wonderful years.
Guaranteed to make you shed a tear if you’re a true fan. Enjoy.
I must admit I’ve never really been a fan of Tintin. Probably because I’ve never read the comics or seen much of the television series.
However, I’m VERY excited about this new upcoming animated movie which is directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson. Not much to say, just watch the trailer!
Are you going to watch it?
Sometimes in life something unexpected happens and you just don’t know what to do afterwards. A sort of empty feeling which is hard to describe. That’s exactly how I felt when I heard Steve Jobs was dead after many years of illness a few days ago.
Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded Apple more than 30 years ago in 1976. Since then Apple has grown to be the most valuable company with some of the best products in the world. Think about Mac and iPhone, they really care about the user experience more than anything else.
I completely understand why many people can’t see why we love Steve Jobs so much. He was just a man, right? Of course, but his brilliant and crazy ideas changed the world forever. Steve knew technology alone wouldn’t do any difference. You have to make the products fun, magical and easy to use in order to make the customers excited. Do you remember how you felt the first time you touched an iPad?
In 2010 after introducing the iPhone 4 he said something which I think really describes the company.
What made Steve Jobs truly legendary for the Apple fans was the keynotes where he got to introduce all of the new products, just like the video above. Steve had the magical ability to sort of catch the audience. In many ways I think the audience was more excited to see Steve Jobs than the actual products. He was simply amazing and I can’t describe why.
My favorite moment with him is the iPhone 2007 presentation. You can really see how excited he was and today we know it was a revolution in technology.
Ultimately, Steve Jobs has been a huge inspiration for me. He’s why I love and care about technology and I personally see him as one of the greatest men who’ve ever lived. That’s why I still can’t believe how such a genius could pass away so early in life.
Rest in peace, Steve. We’ll all miss you.
As a HUGE Pirates of the Caribbean fan I just got the forth movie on DVD yesterday when it was released in Denmark.
Like all the other movies in the series this one wasn’t received well by the critics and I really don’t understand why. It’s a great movie and Johnny Depp is amazing as Jack Sparrow. Personally I think he’s one of the best movie characters ever created!
You should really buy it if you haven’t seen it. Trust me, it’s really good!
As you might know, I’ve been in London for almost the entire last week on a study trip together with a bunch of other friends and students. It was quite amazing and we got to see lots of buildings, museums and other interesting things. Here’s a short list:
- Science Museum
- BBC Guided tour
- Transport Museum
- Thames Barrier with guide
- Greenwich Observatory
- London Eye
- King’s Cross Station
- Brunel Walk with Robert Hulse
I took some quite good pictures as well, here’s a few!
Apple announced yesterday that Steve Jobs, the famous co-founder who most of us has come to love, has resigned as CEO of the company. Tim Cook has been chosen to be the new leader.
Here’s the heart breaking official resignation letter from Steve:
I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.
I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.
As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.
I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.
I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.
We all knew it would happen at some point in time. Steve Jobs has been seriously ill for years now and in 2009 he underwent a liver transplant. But why is he so special? Simply because he’s one of the few people who has changed the technology industry completely!
Steve founded the company with Steve Wozniak exactly 35 years ago. Since then Apple has introduced many revolutionary products that’ve just changed everything. Think about the Machintosh, the iPod and the iPhone. Of course, Apple wasn’t the first to invent the phone. Instead they reinvented it by making it incredibly easy to use with new advanced technology. Apple has done this with many products and even if you don’t like the company I hope you’ll eventually admit it.
Personally I’ll never forget when Steve Jobs walked on stage in 2007 to introduce their first phone.
I found this little tribute to Steve Jobs and his work on YouTube. It’s nothing special but I like it.
For me, Steve Jobs wasn’t just the leader of Apple. He has also been a role model and he always will be. Almost a friend. He didn’t just invent products to sell them, he cared about every single detail. Nothing was too small to be closely examined and I hope other companies will eventually understand that.
I send the best wishes to Steve and his family. I hope he will continue to work with Apple and I hope they’ll always remember his visions and ideas.
Portal is one of those games you just have to play before you die. It’s fun, mind-blowing and nothing like what you’ll expect before you try it.
A new short film based on the game called “No Escape” has just been released and it’s stunning!
Wouldn’t it be quite interesting with a real Portal movie? I never thought I would say that.
