Jeg fandt dette objekt på Nytorv og tænkte at det måske kunne være interessant for +Nationalmuseet​​.
Jeg er ikke sikker på hvad det er, men det ser gammelt ud. Jeg efterlod stedet uberørt hvis I vil sende en mand ud og kigge på det.
Jeg har vedhæftet koordinater på fundet.

update - probably not true
Danish site recordere.dk spoke with Netflix Chief Product Officer Neil Hunt, who explained the situation.
Article available here (in danish but translatable): http://www.recordere.dk/indhold/templates/design.aspx?articleid=12071&zoneid=5 _

So the movie studios aren't happy that they can't control which movies people in different countries gets to watch.
Well, using services such as Unblock.us, Unlocator or similar services, is a way for people to get access to the full Netflix catalogue and cut down on pirating.
Now, apparently, this is pirating too, so anyone doing this might as well go back to their old ways of using torrents or usenet.
Enforcing geo restrictions more severely will lead to an increase in piracy, as does any kind of geo restriction. People don't want to be regarded as second class humans, just because they don't live in a certain geographic area.
Netflix is starting to block subscribers who access its service using VPN services and other tools that bypass geolocation restrictions. The changes, which may also affect legitimate users, have been requested by the movie studios who want full control over what people can see in their respective countries.

Fortunately we have not resorted to this kind of idiocy in Denmark yet, even though the publishers, through DDF - Danish Newspaper Publishers´ Association, here took a united stance against Google News years ago, which is why we don't have Google News in Danish.
We saw these problem pretty early, back in 2002, when DDF chose to sue the site Newsbooster[1] for "deep linking" to their articles, instead of linking to the front page and force people to navigate to the article themselves, thus controlling the experience, generating more page views and ad impressions.

Yesterday I posted about the insanity in Spain, in which the newspapers first tried to extort Google into paying for giving them free traffic, then managed to lobby the Government to impose a law that demanded it, which cause Google to shut down Google News in Spain.

Here is my post from yesterday:
http://www.baekdal.com/opinion/google-news-out-of-spain-none-shall-pass

Now, the same publishers are now calling for "the intervention of the Spanish and EU authorities, and the competition authorities to effectively protect the rights of citizens and companies" to prevent Google from closing Google News, thus forcing them to keep linking the newspapers (which they now have to pay for).

http://www.abc.es/medios/20141211/abci-aede-editores-google-news-201412112017.html
English: https://www.thespainreport.com/13199/spanish-newspaper-publishers-association-now-asks-government-help-stop-google-news-closure/

This is just pathetic, and it makes me barking mad.

Let me just add two more reasons why this is crazy. 

First of all, can you imagine if the tables were turned? Can you imagine if an industry group went out to the EU and demanded that newspapers had to cover the press releases published by another industry, no matter what. And not only that, the newspapers would also have to pay for them.

Because that is what is going on here. In the past, newspapers were the absolute gatekeepers to information. But nobody ever demanded that a newspaper had to cover a story, nor pay the brand they were covering. 

The press would have gone into a fit if anyone tried to demand how the newspaper was formed or what it contained. They would have shouted that it was an intolerable intrusion into the freedom of the press. But this is what they are doing to Google (and the internet). 

How dare any newspaper demand what someone else's site must include? How dare they demand the editorial profile and decisions of others?

You can't have a one-way version of the freedom of the press.

Secondly, it should not be Google who pays the newspapers for linking to them, the newspapers should be paying Google for giving them millions of free pageviews every single month. 

This, in fact, is exactly how brands think about Google. If a brand wants to get more exposure from Google, they will pay Google to place a more prominent link at the top of the search page. This is what is known as a search ad. 

Yep, brands are perfectly happy paying Google for linking to them.

On that note. If a newspaper believes that Google should be paying when they link to one of their stories, why should the newspaper then not also be paying a brand when they use snippets from a press release?

If Google has to pay for using snippets, why should newspapers then not also be paying for using snippets?

Last month, for instance, seven newspapers used snippets from my site. Did they pay me for that? No, of course not. Because, as they say, they are giving me free exposure, despite the fact that they get most of the traffic. Just like with Google News.

And I'm perfectly fine with that, because I know that having other people talk about my articles helps me grow. In fact, I encourage people to quote and link to my articles. It's the best thing in the world.

Of course, what I talk about here is linking, sharing, and quoting. I’m not talking about republishing, in which a newspaper simply copy/paste the entire article or paraphrase it (which is not okay and a violation of my copyright, unless I give them permission to do so).

This is a simple concept that a lot newspapers just don’t understand. Linking is great, republishing is not ...and there is a big difference between the two. 

We see this all the time. Many newspapers forget to link to the stories they use, but very often republish so much of the information that there is no reason to look up the original. 

I’m not saying Google is perfect in any way. They are not. Personally, I’m happy with the notion of Google News shutting down. I see Google News as an industry distorting mechanism in which old media is getting favorable (and unearned) exposure that should have gone to someone else. 

For instance, if a science blogger writes about something important, and that story is later reported by a newspaper, Google News will direct people to the newspaper instead of the science blogger who actually did all the work.

It’s the same with my site. You will never be able to find any of my articles on Google News, because I’m not one of the sites they have decided to include. 

I find that to be hugely problematic, so I would prefer a world where we didn’t have Google News at all. 

I also don’t like Google’s ‘knowledge search’, in which they will copy/paste guides taken from websites, and sometimes not even link back to where they got it from (when they claim the information is ‘public knowledge’). 

I don’t like that because, not only is that completely unfair to those who made the information available to the public in the first place, but because that’s too much like how many newspapers are ‘reporting’ stories.

I will always favor the actual creators because, in a connected world, those are the ones we should be connected with, and not the middlemen. 

Note: I wrote more about that here: You Have to Be The Creator  http://www.baekdal.com/insights/you-have-to-be-the-creator/

But when it comes the Newspapers, EU, Spain and Google, I’m 100% on the side of Google, because the arguments these newspaper associations make are about things that they never themselves would accept if the tables were turned.

It’s very simple. 

If a newspaper believes Google (or others) should pay for links or snippets to its article, then that newspaper should also pay when they are using information obtained from others in their own articles (which accounts for 98% of all news articles). 

And if a newspaper believes that Google should be forced to link to their content, then other people should also be allowed to demand when and how a newspaper reports a story.

Either the rules apply to all, or they don’t apply at all. You can’t have rules that only apply to others.

I really love location based reminders in +Inbox by Gmail.
A few days ago I ordered some goods online and chose to have them delivered a parcel terminal near my home, since if it's delivered to my home and nobody is there, I'll have to pick it up at a post office later.
It's very convenient, as I walk right by the thing when I get off the train on my way home from work.
The only problem is, that when I walk home my head is usually completely empty from exhaustion or I'm thinking about whatever problem I was currently trying to figure out before I left work.
So, when I got the mail that my package had been delivered at the parcel terminal, I set up a location reminder in Inbox, so it would notify me at the train station. And sure enough, roughly half a minute after getting off the train, standing only a few meters from the actual terminal in my usual quasi-hypnotic state, the notification with my access codes ticked in and I could go and pick up the stupid electric tooth brush heads that were waiting for me.

I know it all sounds pretty trivial, but it saved me the aggravation of only remembering to pick up the damned thing when I got home.
A relatively tiny feature like this, really makes all the difference.

I must be pretty slow, because this seems to have been released last year, but I was still very excited last night when I discovered, that almost all the music from one my favorite shows had been released.
I read an AMA with composer  David Schwartz last year[1], but it seems he did another one shortly after, announcing the Arrested Development soundtrack[2].

Here's what the movie industry continues to not understand: You can't fight piracy with DRM - the only thing you can do is to make piracy irrelevant by making your offering more convenient.
Sure price matters and I know enough cheap bastards that share a netflix subscription among several people, but when you have the choice between getting some money or no money, the answer should be simple enough.

Plane rides are my number one reason for even owning a tablet. Before I go anywhere, I want to load it up with movies, tv shows, games and perhaps some comics and books (music and audiobooks I keep on my phone). This explains why I'm so incredibly annoyed by the fact that Android tablets max out at 32GB space, by the way.
I've experienced internet access on a total of two flights in my life and none of those were anywhere near fast enough to stream anything, so offline playback is a must.
That leaves me two options:
1. Google Play Movies and TV, which is really only Movies, since I live in Denmark and therefore not allowed to purchase tv shows from Google Play (not that I really wanted, since almost all of them only have stereo tracks, even though they cost the same as a bluray).
2. Pirated material.

The first option works well and is convenient, but is quite expensive - especially considering the many movies and shows on Netflix, that I already pay for, I'd have access to if an internet connection was available.
The second option is illegal and immoral, but, given the right setup, equally convenient and free to boot.

Nobody can end piracy - I simply don't believe it, but only the movie studios have the power to make it irrelevant.
Ever since Netflix mistakenly said that offline viewing would come to Honeycomb tablets, we've waited (and opined) for the moment when it'd happen. Unfor

An additional cost, but at least it's a once off. Should be just as legal as VHS recordings. N.B. I haven't used it myself (yet), however this option kept cropping up when I was researching how to get Netflix or something similar on XBIAN.

We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met PSY. "Gangnam Style" has been viewed so many times we have to upgrade!

Hover over the counter in PSY's video to see a little math magic and stay tuned for bigger and bigger numbers on YouTube.

Google knocks it out of the park again.
This is way more beautiful than I expect a calendar to be.
I hope some of this design will come to the web version eventually.

I had given up hope that I would ever find mexican food this good in Copenhagen, but then I heard of this place. Two people shared an order of roasted chicken tacos and an order of the coriander/garlic shrimp tacos as an entree and shared one roasted chicken and a confit pork burrito afterwards. It was plenty filling and absolutely excellent. If I had to pick a favorite, it would most likely be the shrimp tacos, but everything else was still delicious. One of the sexiest meals I've had in a while. Don't go, however, if you dislike cilantro, lime, chili or avocado.

There is something magical about a well crafted pizza, baked in a proper wood fired stone oven. I highly recommend this visiting place, if you're interested in experiencing how a proper pizza should taste.
