Looking at…

Nintendo Wii – User Interface

I will in this review give my opinion about the user interface (UI) used with the Nintendo Wii. This is a follow up to my two earlier review posts on Nintendo Wii (review 1 and review 2). The user interface got the same look and feel in all the build-in software, the Channels and in two games. It might be used in more games but so far I have only seen it in Wii Play and Wii Sports. I'm using…

Summary of my Nintendo Wii experience

Some of the feedback I got on my review 'My Experience with Nintendo Wii' was that it was VERY long, which is correct, I got kind of carried away and I didn't even cover all the subjects I wanted to. Other feedback was that it was missing a conclusion. The shortest version would be: Super I will now do a quick summary and finish up with a pro / con for the Nintendo Wii. Will try to keep it short…

My first thoughts on Apple iPhone

One of the very hot topics today is the iPhone that was announced by Apple yesterday. Most people (who have been following Apple and the rumors) expected them to announce it yesterday, but I doubt they expected exactly what was announced. Widescreen iPod, internet, OS X and a phone... all in one device. They claim they are reinventing the mobile phone, looking at the Apple site for the iPhone and watching the keynote presentation you can surely get that feeling…

My Experience with Nintendo Wii

This is my personal review of the Nintendo Wii; it will be different from most of the other reviews which can be found on many game web sites. I will not give a rating such as 9/10 or anything. Instead it will be about my experience with Nintendo Wii. When I say 'my experience' then I will from time to time include what my kids thinks about it all, since they have different opinions and views on things. I will…

Wii Launch event in Switzerland

This was written on the 7th of December 2006 and shown on another of my sites. I have done one change to the text compared to the one from the 7th, about the noise level of the Wii. I wrote before that it was very noisy, but I have not had that issue since. Expect an update on my experience with the Wii later this week. Finally, the European launch of Wii happened. Hold on, some might say, first on…

First post

So time to get to the real first post... Since post 0 I have worked on the design and learned a bit more about Word Press and blogging. I also added "Technorati", "Feedburner" and the "Bookmark to"; with supports del.cio.us and Digg among many. You might have asked yourself, what this blog is about and why yet another blog. If you did ask yourself this, then do have a look at the about page and the On My Mind page.…

Welcome to SamuelNova.com – On My Mind

This should be considered as post number '0', as I'm not ready to say that the site is 'live' yet. I plan this to happen before the very end of 2006. But while you are here I suggest you check the various pages such as About and the 'On My Mind' page. Hope you will be back in the new year.
