Ima Norwegian

Posted by Geeky Swedes on May 6th, 2012

Funny guys Tim Hunter and Frank Shiers bring a little Scandihoovian humor to MyBallard in a weekly cartoon called Ima Norwegian.

Ima Norwegian is a life-time Ballard resident who lives in a modest home with her husband Lars. Both are Ballard High School graduates (Go Beavers) but you’ll have to really dig to figure out which year they graduated. Ima won’t willingly offer her age, but will admit that it rhymes with ‘nifty-something’. Ima said she would only appear in the cartoon if we featured her in her traditional Norwegian bunad. And remember, she only needs her glasses for reading. Her two kids are out on their own, in the area and close enough that they occasionally stop by. Ima believes it’s because they miss their mother and they just happened to also need to do their laundry.

    Awesome read. I just passed this onto a buddy who was doing some research on that. He actually bought me lunch since I found it for him! Thus let me rephrase: Thank you for lunch!

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    In this awesome pattern of things you secure a B+ just for effort. Where you actually misplaced me was on the details. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be much more correct in this article. Having said that, allow me tell you exactly what did give good results. The article (parts of it) is pretty persuasive and this is probably the reason why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can certainly notice the leaps in logic you come up with, I am not certain of exactly how you appear to connect your points that help to make the final result. For right now I shall subscribe to your issue however trust in the future you actually connect your facts much better.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • 27 Charlie Dorton // Nov 2, 2014 at 11:01 pm

  • 31 projekty domu // Nov 4, 2014 at 12:19 am

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

Your authoring can be quite persuasive which is most likely the reason why I am making an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, while I can notice the leaps in reason you come up with, I am not convinced of how you seem to connect the points which inturn make your final result.

This article truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this subject goes. Nonetheless at this time there is actually one particular point I am not too cozy with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central theme of your point, let me observe just what all the rest of your readers have to point out.Very well done.
