Calling @UPS Denmark. But never again.
Experienced some real reluctance against new business today: Me: Hi, I’m considering starting up a webshop and would like to know what prices you are offering to businesses. I know it’s possible to calculate prices on your website, but that’s only for private persons. I would like to know more about your volume pricing, to see if my business model is economically feasible. UPS:...
3 reasons why I'm no longer a Spotify-fan
I’ve been using Spotify since “the early days” (2007), which has mostly been a pleasant experience. I‘ve loved the range in their music library, the collaborative playlists, the iPad-app, the offline playlists, their design, their social layer and so on… And I still do. But other parts of their service are starting to really annoy me, and I’m considering...
Why Path isn't my solution
Disagree w/ @hugoamsellem. I share differently with different groups. My solution isn’t Path, rather FB groups medium.com/adventures-in-… — Kjetil Holmefjord (@kjetil1) May 5, 2013 I read this article about replacing Facebook with Path, talking about how Facebook is for showing while Path is about sharing. I disagree, which I first expressed on Twitter (above). The trend among my...
Thoughts on the 'Snapchat social graph'
Earlier I tweeted about how the ‘Snapchat social graph’ could be what Path really wants/needs. I see Path as a social network for techies, and I believe they (will) have the same growth issues as Foursquare. Still, I believe the demand for a new and more intimate/personal social graph (like the one Path is trying to build) is growing rapidly. This got me thinking: Snapchat, unlike...

The future of Klout
I’ve been very enthusiastic about Klout since I first discovered it last fall. Together with Spotify, Airbnb and Foursquare, it’s one of the companies I follow most closely. Others have also seen the potential in Klout, and here are some of my thoughts about what they could do in the future. The benefits of rating influence are pretty obvious by now, and I believe the average...

bijan: When we interact with our phones we get to interact with applications that are often built in less than a year. Many times these apps are built within 6months. That’s the gift Apple gave to the world. It was that long ago when VCs and entreprenuers dreaded the idea of building software for…

Social media to be handled by the government?
Me and two friends had to use Google+ yesterday, as we wanted to have a conversation with 3-way video without having to pay for it (Skype). The website is awesome, and the re-design is brilliant. I even tried the mobile app, which looks and works far better than the one FB currently offers. My photo’s are automatically backed up on G+, but I still don’t see myself using the website in...
Do The Right Thing
To briefly come present my opinion with an awful analogy: Fax machines, Nokia 3310s and also tech patents are becoming increasingly obsolete, and I believe the latter should die out one way or the other. Amazon’s “one-click-buy”-patent is a perfect example. Patents were supposed to incentivize innovation when it was expensive to build something new (like a car). The...
While procrastinating today, I stumbled upon this website, showing funny iPhone fails and auto-corrects. I couldn’t find any Android-fails. By making it so easy for iPhone-users to take screenshots of their phones, Apple gets a lot of free promotion on the web. To do the same on an Android, you’ll have to purchase a 4$ app, or follow this procedure - which only a fraction of the...
