Houston… we have a crisis!

Today it seems that something has again upset the financial markets. At exactly 14:34
the dollar suddenly crashed below 0.80 swiss francs and took two more steps with approx
0.0010 swiss francs within 5 minutes. I thought, it could have been a temporary bump
and relax in the meantime…

Countries and their debts…

for help…

Google and Munich S-Bahn…

…how do they relate?
You may say: One can spot Munich from atop via Google Maps and try to find all S-Bahn
trainstations… True but as of today, another service from Deutsche Bahn has reached
internet era. Ever imagined to see where your suburb-train is currently and if it is delayed?

Cufón and WordPress…

…or how you can style your blog and make a specific view available to your people.
One of the issues of HTML or generally the internet is, that HTML displays the fonts
you have installed on your computer. So if you use for example Segoe UI (delivered
with Windows Vista/Seven, a user with XP or other OS might probably not see your font.

32GB – Top of space on microSD?

As you probably know, microSD cards are the smallest known memory cards ever available.
With its 15mmx11mm size at a thickness of 0.7mm it is very small and still these cards can
hold up to 32GB of data. Reading speeds of up to 20MB/s and Writing speeds of up to 16 MB/s
make these little fellas a very good alternative to conventional SD cards.

Terrorism in Norway?

As you probably have noticed, there was a terrible act of violence in Oslo.
It seems as if some crazy guy wanted to bomb down the entire government district in Oslo.
For me, the 32 years old Anders Behring B. is nothing more than an ill-minded man who
took life of more then 170 innocent persons.

Cleanup on aisle 4…

…or when you notice that your blog is a total mess on mobile devices!
Yesterday I noticed that my blog is really heavy-loading on mobile devices so I decided
to do some overhaul on my blog and trimming all my posts into two-sectioned posts using
the “More…” tag! As you can see, the blog now loads ways faster and shows a short intro…

Check, Mate!

Again I had to wait for a Test-Computer to be prepared for installation of a test application.
While waiting, I decided to play Chess again and trying to bone the AI again.
As it is rather difficult to gain six Queens AND NOT to Stalemate the AI.
Stalemate means that the opponent can’t make a move without being checked.

Ever wanted to know…

…where all those airplanes you see on the sky are going to?
I always wondered about the immense amount (spotting almost 5 or 6 planes on the sky
above Bern on a busy day!). More and more modern planes are equipped with a special
GPS sender that allows them to send their position to the different ground controls.

Funny stuff you can do with an iPhone

iPhone here, iPhone there. Some people might say that it is boring to read about Apple’s
wonder device, being owned by more than 20 million people every day.
However one guy decided to put the device into his guitar while recording a video.
The results are somewhat astounding and baffling.

Finally on Google+

Last but not least I am also part of the Google+ community. Why, you ask?
Because my other friends have done so, too and being recently informed by local news that
there’s a new facebook killer on the way garnished with a demo.
What shows up now seems to be a potential facebook alternative…

Should one be worried about the Euro?

As you can see, the Euro is undergoing some loss of value compared to the Swiss Franc.
So is the Dollar and other currencies aswell.
But what makes the Swiss Franc so extremely strong compared to the other currencies?
Is it Switzerland with it’s well-known banks or some other factor?

iPhone PWNED… again!

Again I had to wait for an application to finish maintenance on my workstation.
So I decided to play chess again. Funny to see, how the iPhone can loose at medium settings:
I think, the AI seems to be either very dumb (easy), not deep-analyzing (medium) or a real
pain in the a** when using a higher difficulty setting as it analyzes every move (hard).
