The sunny side of Bern

I like the moderate, yet sunny weather of Bern. Warm, yet not
grilling. I hate hot and dense weather where Temperatures are
above 32 degrees celsius and humidity above 70% like the last
week where exactly such conditions have dominated the day!

August completely blogged…

Just three months ago, my blog had 14 entries from May to end of June. The July took
35 more posts and the August now was entirely filled. To say: Modern communication
makes it possible for us to share moments and ideas quicky, easy and impressive.
I am not of Generation facebook or twitter (yet I use them!) but my blog is certainly…

Spectacular video from vulcan Etna!

Italy’s most active vulcan Etna is active again. The vulcan is situated on Sicily
and with 3.323m over sea level probably also the highest of Europe. The
video shows a very spectacular eruption again. Beautiful to look at but you
don’t want to be there right now if you’re not intended to be grilled…

How will glass change our life?

When you think of glass, you may probably think of a transparent piece
of molten quartz that has been shaped either for drinking or being part
of a window or being a plate for tables and office desks. The following
video shows what you will be probably able to do with it in the future…

The Look of the iPhone of the future?

Tech news are all about the actual gadgets you can buy in the near future.
But tech news about gadgets that are still future inventions to be yet made,
are rather rare. This one relates to Apple’s most successful smartphone, the
iPhone. A successor will come, but not in this design flavour!

The nature and their secrets…

Today I stumbled over a really frightening article on my favourite news portal.
You all know wasps. Tiny yellow-black, really annoying buzzers whose stings can be
real painful. They bother you when you’re eating, they bother you even when you’re
just sunbathing. So what am I talking about now? Anything bigger? A hornet? Nope!!!

Strange movie: The worst movie EVER!

Why on earth would a movie have such a trivial and strange name?
Why would it be released to to the public knowing that it is bad?
At least the name is program. The first weekend, the movie is shown,
the movie has brought in the least amount of watchers and money.

Gasoline Sales promoted?

Today I was shocked to see that gas station keepers may receive bonuses by selling
gasoline at the highest possible prices possible. With this, automobilists might run
into a more and more competition-driven price for gasoline as gasoline station keepers
may chage the prices theirselves. The higher, the more bonuses they receive

Hurricane Irene at the east coast of USA

While news have spread the word, a hurricane is on it’s way to the upper east coast of
the USA. They say that the storm is a category 3 storm that may also reach category 4.
With 1300 km diameter (that’s pretty large if you ask me!) it is also dangerous to a large
area. Well… in New York and New Jersey, there’s big evacuation and alert!

New game discovered: EVE Online

Usually it is very hard to convince me of a game. especially those type of game
where you pay on a monthly subscribe fee like World of Warcraft… but with the
advice of a good friend of mine who invited me to a 21 days trial, I finally
decided to upgrade my account to a paid subscription one.

Crazy weather…

Just 2 days ago I juiced out at 34 °C barely knowing how to cool down except to take a cold
shower or drink cold water and today the news spread that temperatures may fall by 20 °C
that also leads to snowfalls in the more exponented areas such as mountain passes or higher
situated villages such as Davos for example.

As you probably might have already read on local and international news, Loriot, also
known as Vicco von Bülow under his real name, died in Ammerland (Germany, Bavaria)
on monday at the age of 87. Very well known for his typical shaped cartoon characters
and Wum and Wendelin that were part of “Der grosse Preis”, his sort of humor was…

I guess, you already missed my longer posts during my absence. So did I miss a fully
functioning Internet! Unbelievable but today you feel sorta naked if you don´t have

In the Münster of Freiburg

Today I was in the Münster of Freiburg As you can imagine, Münster churches are bigger
than regional churches. And when you know of the size of the Cologne Dom or the Ulmer
Münster, you will probably know of their size also. Is the Frauenkirche in Munich also very
big, the Münster of Freibug is a lot larger. As cameras aren’t liked inside, I used my iPhone…

With the buckboard on tour

Today I was on tour on a buckboard thru Badenweiler and Niederweiler.
The Tour started at the hotel I am staying in and ended the same place after a
pleasant 2 hours ride. The tour was very relaxing and led thru grass plains hills and
wine fields. Very astounding and nice to look at!

News from the relaxing One…

Today, monday, it’s only one more day, till I return home to Bern again.
With that I am relaxed to the maximum possible. Let alone the lots of sun I could get

Germany and fast(?) Cell networks…

Well… I still wonder why reception of all kinds of cell phone services is still so bad!
Not that I really would miss my Cell Phone anyways… But updating my Blog can
be a real pain in the a** when my Cell Phone is either signalling “no Service” or so
weak Networks so that Upload attempts of actual articles tend to fail…

Chime Super Deluxe for PS3

Today I am writing about a new Game I discovered in the PSN store. So
I downloaded the demo to play it for some time and see if I like it. It
took approx 30 minutes of gaming and I decided to spend 15 CHF
for the game as it is really catching and making you play several hours.

How patient are Apple Store workers?

Today I found this funny video on youTube where a guy is testing the Apple
Store workers’ patience to the maximum. The 3 Minutes video show 4 different
situations and the reaction is quite interesting. Where one would get a snarly
comment when bringing food or a pet into the shop, at Apple stores all is okay!

Google buys Motorola cell phones!

Google has bought Motorola’scell phone division for approx 12.5 billion US$!
With this purchase, Google plans to give Android more support in the cell phone
market. As Motorola is working together with Google for a longer time now, this
step was only a logical conclusion. The name Motorola will still exist though!

Blitz Chess…

How long does it take to set a human player checkmate with the fastest possible
combination of moves such as the Schäferzug? The fastest Game I know of between
two human Players was about 45 seconds. Today I was able to set a new personal

Today I had to read that Google plans to integrate Games into their social net-

interface gets bloated more and more due to several “apps” that do various
actions. Besides that, I hate tons of requests for playing game XY…

Interesting way of cutting hair…

This way of hair-cutting is somewhat strange yet amusing to watch. Never
thought that someone would really use this rather unconventional way of
cutting hair. I myself would still prefer a coiffeur who uses scissors instead
of the tools used in the video. But watch and decide for yourself.

has driven 225’000 kilometers without a crash on the Google campus that is also
connected to the public traffic. 3 days ago, it happened… the car crashed into another!
