As soon as the build was available in the insider Dev-channel yesterday, I , like many others, downloaded it and started the upgrade process.

Installing the build went smooth and fast. I was running a norwegian Windows 10 21H2-build and after a few minutes, and one reboot I was greeted with the lock-screen with new fonts and was presented with the new desktop-experience. Total time? 5-10 minutes.

Below are some screenshots of the upgrade and my first dive into the system. I like the look and feel, and it is suprisingly stable for a first build.

The new look of File Explorer
The new look of Settings – system
Windows Update in its new look
The new Start menu
The new Widgets pane sliding in from the left

Overall my first impressions are good. The upgrade was fast, the system is suprisingly stable given that we are in early days, and I like what I see. As I test out more and more features, I will get back with more information.

Short review of iOS 6.0

Written by AboKevin on . Posted in Apple, iOS 6, iPad 1st gen, iPhone 4

No GravatarI upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS 6 today.I am not particularly known for being patient, so when I found the upgrade package I downloaded it and upgraded as soon as I could.

First attempt was a complete failure, necessitating a restore of the phone, but second time around everything went just smooth. Why it didn’t succeed the first time, I don’t know since I did exactly the same steps both times, but anyway.

What is new on an iPhone 4? First of all, the YouTube app is gone, and so is the Google powered Map application, the latter having been replaced by an Apple-provided in-house developed map application.

Several apps have gotten a face-lift, primarily the iTunes app and the App Store app. Facebook integration is present in most apps, and there are a lot of small features built in here and there. For a more complete listing of the new features in iOS 6, check out Apples’ site.

In the gallery below I show some of the new apps and redesigns, and give my comments on each picture.

So what is missing on the iPhone 4? Siri is still not here, neither the ability to make FaceTime calls over cellular data networks. Made for iPhone hearing aids is not available, and neither is the panorama feature of the Photo app. In the new Map app, flyover and turn by turn navigation is not available for the iPhone 4.

So what then is my conclusion? For a totally free upgrade this is a no-brainer, even with all the missing features from iOS 6. I recommend you get the update as soon as it becomes available. Apple touts this as the most modern mobile OS there is. I do not agree, but iOS has been improved upon, and version 6 is really something to get. That said, some of the things missing from the iPhone 4 is a mystery to me. Why no FaceTime over cellular? Unfathomable! Another point of contention for me is the fact that this update is not available for my first generation iPad. They do provide some of the features of iOS 6 for the iPhone 3GS, so why not the iPad 1? Don’t ask me, it does not make any sense.

What do you think? Is iOS 6 something you want, or like? What is your opinion on the missing features? Let me know in the comments below.

A visual guide to clean-installing Windows 8

Written by AboKevin on . Posted in Screenshots, Windows, Windows 8

No GravatarIn this screenshot-gallery I will show the process of doing a clean install of Windows 8. The process was done in a virtual machine on my desktop, and thus took longer than if I had done it on a real machine. I did a clean install on my sons laptop earlier today, and that process took approximately 15 minutes.

Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce
a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
