Can we live without IT?

All day long I sit by the computer with my cellphone strapped to the ear. I can’t say that this was the way I entended it to be, but I also need to express that I’m not really sad about it. Therefore, I went hunting for others who are worse than me. And where did I find them? On the web of course…

The Viral Factory

When it comes to getting seen on internet, The Viral Factory seems to be one of the best. Using sites as youtube they’ve managed to get up to 35 million hits on one of their clips. That’s about 4 times Sweden!
Some of their most famous videos are the ones showing the Trojan Games, seen below

What if… ?

Here’s a little video that I think is really funny. Kudos to Efe…

And why wouldn’t you like to go to Sweden, or at least Reb us, when we threw these great parties!?!

Rebel Challenge is the shit!

Last night, right about midnight, we launched the Challenge. All the preparation is done and over, now we go into Challenge mood and work with the challegers to make this fun and a success!

Many have joined and we will see to that these together with the ones coming will get the results updated as often as possible on the ranking page.

Another video has also been edited and put on youtube. I’ll put it here under…

Evolution of communication

My mother always find time to tell me how hard communication was back in the days when she was young. If you had someone in another country you wanted to talk to, you simply had to write letters. Those took days to get there!

Later on, you got landlines to connect, but the prices was so high that you simply couldn’t call unless you were royal or simply rich. After that, calling cards got bigger and everyone was running out standing in phonebooths no matter the weather. Not so nice really…

Now, people who want to call abroad but not pay as much use their computers and VOIP or Skype. This is an enormous improvement, but that too is starting to feel old and inconveniant. Sitting with your headset strapped up to the Internet makes you feel like a telemarketer and the feature of being able to see the other person has not been helping, unless for lovers in long distance relationships.

Today, being online isn’t hip as it was 10 years ago. Being able to call anywhere on the way to taking a coffee is more conveniant and 2007. Having your office set up where you are is not seen as unconventional but rather a way to increase your level of communication. Therefore, services like Rebtel’s is getting more and more useable.

And who knows what’s next? From what my CEO (Hjalmar) thinks, seen in his statement on Reuters, the future’s near and viral without having to be wired up!

Street review iPhone

So, after having read (and got tired of) the same reviews of the iPhone over and over again all across everyone’s blogs, I happened to be on the underground station “Odenplan” when I heard some guys talking about the iPhone. I decided to record what they were saying:

(Sorry, in Swedish only!)

People are hugging for Rebtel

Yesterday I was out taking a walk and a coffee with some friends. A friend of my friend had come spontaniously over from London for some sightseeing. When I told her about the UK campaign “We love your operator” on youtube, she wanted to make one here in Stockholm, and so we did…
