Infrequent posts on Daily Techtips

I have been posting on Daily techtips almost every day for close to three years, and it feels like its time to change the setup of the blog a little bit. I have not fully figured out how to proceed, so there will be some infrequent postings on the blog for a while.  

 

Best regards,

Google Sketchup

Need to draw some 3D designs? I do, and a great tool for this is Google Sketchup. It provides an easy way to do conceptual designs and similar with an easy to use interface. Using Sketchup is very simple, and you get great results without having to get a degree in 3D modelling beforehand. 

Google Sketchup is a free download and there are a lot of guides and helpful tips available at the web site.

Space flight going forward

A couple of days ago, SpaceX, the company founded by Elon Musk (of PayPal, and Tesla fame among others) revealed their latest addition to their line of rockets, the Falcon Heavy. It has twice the lifting capacity of existing rockets and it promises to bring a new era to space flight. And it will be ready for trial during 2012-2013, so it is pretty far along and not just a paper product!

Great stuff if you are interested in space flight!

Feeling nostalgic?

Commodore 64. 

A name that brings a lot of memories to an entire generation of computer geeks. A lot of us learned our first programming skills on a Commodore 64 and the first computer games was played on the same.

Now it is possible to buy a new Commodore 64. The machine is looking just like the old classic, but the internals sports a modern day PC. Hit or miss? I'm leaning towards a failure, it feels a little bit sacrilegious and it would probably be best to leave it as a good memory. But hey, it is pretty cool to have a Commodore 64!

Sonos Wireless Dock

I just got a great addition to my Sonos system, the Sonos Wireless Dock. It is a great little dock, that enables you to play your iPhone or iPod content (and the content from music applications as well). And of course, since it is part of your Sonos system, you can stream your music from the Wireless Dock to any combination of your Sonos zones.

A great addition to any Sonos system if you have a iPhone or iPod.
