Hi everybody, long time no see. Just recently I realized that there is a gazillion of love songs out there. And while there are hundreds of thousands of songs about almost any other topic, there is one topic I rarely see: Work. And I think that’s funny because while there is almost no song about[…]

Well, things change obviously. There are at least two types of mobile phones out there: Devices with a provider branding (like Verizon, Vodafone, T-Mobile…) and non-branded devices. In the past it was rather simple: You gotta free (unbranded) device? Well, then you being able to upgrade to a new OS version only depended on how[…]

I went to a party the other day and met some friends. Well, most of them. One was still missing with no one knowing where he was. So we figured it would be best to give him a call. The venue was a little tricky to find so he may need some directions. And that’s[…]

I know there are different perceptions as to what is a swarm that might be intelligent. Sometimes this refers to a giant group of beings (like Ants, Fish…). Sometimes it is used in a technical context where “some” – as opposed to millions in the first example – units (like robots) coordinate to get a[…]

Be warned, this one might turn out to be a little longer than the usual stuff… I want this to be absolutely clear: I love Linux. I’ve been using it for almost 8 years now and I have been quite happy with it. I like the concept of open software, I love the community and[…]

Surveys in the year 2012. I recently talked to a friend who works in a major company. They are running an employee survey these days. I couldn’t believe what he told me and therefore I talked to some more people working for other companies. It seems to be a trend…. I used to participate in[…]

Well, I must admit I made a mistake. While being upset with the quality of my new smartphone (see previous post) I kind of assumed that the problem may only be related to the smartphone itself. What a foolish assumption. To start with, I usually buy covers for valuable stuff like expensive smartphones. In the[…]

The way I purchase technical stuff may be a bit outdated, but it generally works for me: I do NOT buy new technologies as an early adopter. I wait for it to settle and actually work. I wait for the right device – minimising the neccessary compromises I usually buy high quality devices because I[…]

Been to a party intended for people above the age of 30. So I expected something 80s. Maybe 90s. Year right. Expected. That bloody asshole of a DJ pushed Techno-Beats into our ears ALL night. I mean really – did you know it is possible to overlay one single stupid techno beat over ANY song[…]

Being at TechEd for the first time I was overwhelmed by the size and the professionalism of that event. Having listened to some of the sessions I wandered through the Exposition and found the Hands-on-Lab. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? After having been in a Listen-Mode for a couple of hours I was really keen[…]
