Lyrics:

(Icelandic)
Heyr, himna smiður,
hvers skáldið biður.
Komi mjúk til mín
miskunnin þín.
Því heit eg á þig,
þú hefur skaptan mig.
Eg er þrællinn þinn,
þú ert drottinn minn.

Guð, heit eg á þig,
að þú græðir mig.
Minnst þú, mildingur, mín,
mest þurfum þín.
Ryð þú, röðla gramur,
ríklyndur og framur,
hölds hverri sorg
úr hjartaborg.

Gæt þú, mildingur, mín,
mest þurfum þín,
helzt hverja stund
á hölda grund.
Send þú, meyjar mögur,
málsefnin fögur,
öll er hjálp af þér,
í hjarta mér.

(English)
Hear, smith of heavens.
The poet seeketh.
In thy still small voice
Mayest thou show grace.
As I call on thee,
Thou my creator.
I am thy servant,
Thou art my true Lord.

God, I call on thee;
For thee to heal me.
Bid me, prince of peace,
Thou my supreme need.
Ever I need thee,
Generous and great,
O’er all human woe,
City of thy heart.

Guard me, my savior.
Ever I need thee,
Through ev’ry moment
In this world so wide.
Virgin–born, send me
Noble motives now.
Aid cometh from thee,
To my deepest heart.

GOOGLE COMPUTER SUPPORT – BOYFRIEND 5.0 VS HUSBAND 1.0

DEAR TECH SUPPORT,

LAST YEAR I UPGRADED FROM BOYFRIEND 5.0 TO HUSBAND 1.0 AND NOTICED A DISTINCT SLOW DOWN IN OVERALL SYSTEM PERFORMANCE PARTICULARLY IN THE FLOWER AND JEWELRY APPLICATIONS, WHICH OPERATED FLAWLESSLY UNDER BOYFRIEND 5.0

IN ADDITION, HUSBAND 1.0 UNINSTALLED MANY OTHER VALUABLE PROGRAMS, SUCH AS ROMANCE 9.5 AND PERSONAL ATTENTION 6.5, AND THEN INSTALLED UNDESIRABLE PROGRAMS SUCH AS NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 AND GOLF CLUBS 4.1.

CONVERSATION 8.0 NO LONGER RUNS AND HOUSECLEANING 2.6 SIMPLY CRASHES THE SYSTEM. PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE TRIED RUNNING NAGGING 5.3 TO FIX THESE PROBLEMS, BUT TO NO AVAIL.

WHAT CAN I DO?

SIGNED,

DESPERATE

——————————————

DEAR DESPERATE,

FIRST, KEEP IN MIND THAT BOYFRIEND 5.0 IS AN ENTERTAINMENT PACKAGE WHILE HUSBAND 1.0 IS AN OPERATING SYSTEM. PLEASE ENTER THE COMMAND: I THOUGHT YOU LOVE ME.HTML, DOWNLOAD TEARS 6.2 AND BE SURE TO INSTALL THE GUILT 3.0 UPDATE. IF THOSE APPLICATIONS WORK AS DESIGNED, HUSBAND 1.0 SHOULD THEN AUTOMATICALLY RUN THE APPLICATION JEWELRY 2.0 AND FLOWERS 3.5.

HOWEVER, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT OVERUSE OF THE ABOVE APPLICATIONS CAN CAUSE HUSBAND 1.0 TO DEFAULT TO GRUMPY SILENCE 2.5, HAPPY HOUR 7.0, OR BEER 6.1. PLEASE NOTE THAT BEER 6.1 IS A VERY BAD PROGRAM THAT WILL DOWNLOAD THE SNORING LOUDLY BETA.

WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES INSTALL MOTHER-IN-LAW 1.0 (IT RUNS A VIRUS IN THE BACKGROUND THAT WILL EVENTUALLY SEIZE CONTROL OF ALL YOUR SYSTEM RESOURCES).

IN ADDITION, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REINSTALL THE BOYFRIEND 5.0 PROGRAM. THIS IS AN UNSUPPORTED APPLICATION AND WILL CRASH HUSBAND 1.0.

IN SUMMARY, HUSBAND 1.0 IS A GREAT PROGRAM, BUT IT DOES HAVE LIMITED MEMORY AND CANNOT LEARN NEW APPLICATIONS QUICKLY. YOU MIGHT CONSIDER BUYING ADDITIONAL SOFTWARE TO IMPROVE MEMORY AND PERFORMANCE. WE RECOMMEND COOKING 3.0 AND HOTLINGERIE 7.7.

How to use Google Glass on a date

Google Glass

Google Glass(es) are no longer a dream, although for many they still do feel and appear as something surreal. Those select enough already have big plans for their future pairs. One such individual already has developed an interesting application. In a widely circulating video set inside of a restaurant, a guy uses Google Glass to uncover background information about his potential girlfriend. How this works exactly…can be out by watching the video.

The particular youtube clip has almost 3 million views, and the reason it turned viral can be partly attributed to how the script does not diverge greatly from reality.

One should keep in mind however that real men don’t need help from technology to impress the ladies.

Samsung Curved OLED TV

OLED Samsung Curved TV

The new Samsung OLED TV presented at the CES 2013 has a curved display which gives the effect of depth for the content you watch on it. So this way the person who watch a movie on this tv will be able to see images with a strong panoramic effect, which you can’t get from a Flat screen TV.

Samsung did a good job by improving the quality of the OLED TV curved screens, which will assure a bigger number of consumers that will benefit of a new great experience.

The screen has a 55 inch diagonal, and the curved shape is special designed so no matter from what position or distance you are looking at the screen the visual field is the same. According to Samsung the curved screen will create an IMAX viewing experience.

For the moment no information was released regarding screen resolution or the price.

We are looking forward for the second half of 2013 to see the product on the market.
