This is a small project I had a few years ago. Summer in Stockholm
It was just a month ago when I had lunch with an android user who showed me a great app where he could set reminders based on location. I searched for a similar app within app store, but I couldn’t find anyone good enough.
While I was looking i came across an article that were describing the same feature, in a native iphone app. Bingo!
So, what is this feature all about? For instance, you can set a reminder when you enter a store, and the have your shopping list right in front of you when you enter. Launch a specific reminder when your phone is connected to your car, call home when you leave work and so on. It may sound like a small thing, but actually it helps me a lot every day.
So how do you use it?
Start “Reminders”, (“Påminnelser” is the Swedish word for that)
Click on the + sign, and write your reminder – in this case “Pick up dry cleaning”
Then, click on the small (i) sign
In the third row you will find “Remind me on a specific location” (Påminn mig på en plats). Toggle that button, and “location” will appear. Click it.
Now you’ll find a number of suggestions on where you want to be reminded. You can choose to be reminded when you enter, or when you’re leaving.
I hope you find it as useful as I do! A great feature, not so well-known in iOS.
Lee Sedol had seen all the tricks. He knew all the moves. As one of the world’s best and most experienced players of the complex board game Go, it was difficult to surprise him. But halfway through his first match against AlphaGo, the artificially intelligent player developed by Google DeepMind, Lee was already flabbergasted. AlphaGo…
Loney Dear is a new experience for me. When I woke up this morning I hadn’t even heard his name. In a Swedish morning show he was presented with an acoustic song, from the presentation of the polar prize, and I got hooked straight away. I hope you will too.
This is a quote that comes in many shapes. I’ve heard it in my professional carrier as “Where your mind goes, your energy flows”, but I guess this one is a more private one. Anyhow, I think that there is a lot of truth in these simple words.

Write with an “ordinary” pen, on “ordinary” paper and get the notes uploaded to the cloud automatically. When you’re out of pages, just microwave the papers, and they will be erased.
The day after New Year Celebrations in Barcelona, I walked around a silent Barcelona, and there was one image that really stayed in my mind.
This man; a few hours after thousands of people have surrounded him, cheering in champagne, launched fire crackers and so on, this man rested against a door. Alone.
He had his open can of olives, his shoes and a bottle of water. I just wondered, how did he end up here? Our world is getting better all the time (yes it is), and I really hope that no one, in a future not so distant will say there wishes for a new year, in conditions like this.
Valentines day? – Bummer!
Two weeks ago I attended an entrepreneur conference in Italy. On my way back I shared a ride with three other entrepreneurs, and we decided to stop for lunch at a beautiful village on the shore of Lake Como. To be perfectly honest, this is one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited – ever!
What’s so strange, is that I passed by this place so many times before and never stopped. For everyone passing it, you should! Amazing with those misty mountains on the other side of the lake.
Sara Isaksson has one of Sweden’s most beautiful voices. In this clip she plays Anders Widmark:s (piano) song “To Open Up My Heart”. A great song that may fit well to tomorrow’s Valentines. Modest, honest, upright and touches our hearts, and I guess those words all describe what a healthy relationship is all about.
In my “Best Albums Of All Times” Sara Isakssons album Red Eden was one of my choices. You’ll find that link here
