LED, Halloween and a house front…

Weirdstuff you can find on Youtube. In this case it deals with Halloween which
is a rich-celebrated holiday in the USA. Were standard jackolanterns the his-
torical lighting methods for housefronts and far from spectacular, so has LED
become an interesting place there now. The video says more then 1000 words!

Siri on iPhone 4?

So… when checking the web again, I found something really disturbing!
The iPhone 4S is yet really desired and waiting times for Apple’s newest
smartphone is at up to three weeks. One of it’s most advertized features:
Siri! Apple says that Siri is demanding lots of CPU power. True?

Why Electronic Arts is worse than Google!

Battlefield 3 has hit the stores and since yesterday you can activate your
purchased game online. Activate it? Yes, you read right, also EA has started
the crap with online activation à la Ubisoft & Co. – So playing Battlefield 3
without a working activation Server and Origin? Well… T. s.!

How to tell a traffic warden “Shove it”!

Another video today catched my attention. Car drivers know them and they
hate them: Parking meters! Especially when they run out and just in this
moment a traffic warden happens to pass by to give you a ticket. These two
guys in Brooklyn, NY seem not very happy about the ticket. Time to act!

Better double-check objects!

This video shows well why you should double-check objects you plan to put
your bodyweight on as otherwise material-failure could lead to serious
injury. But this guy also wanted to be a show-off to his colleague. In this
case the show-off competition went the wrong way. Serves him right!

Don’t joke with crabs! They can hurt you!

I think, Dostojevski would be once more proven right with his provocative
book title “The idiot”. But in this case, two russians couldn’t help it to annoy
a wandering crab. The crab found a way to exact revenge on the one guy
who picked it up. But watch for yourself:

Hungry? Better don’t watch this then!

People eat different food on different continents. You probably have heard of
people eating worms, locusts and other rather disgusting “meals”. In this case
it seems that the video channel ownler likes fresh and live food!
The following videos may not be suitable for people with weak stomach!

Apple… you can’t be serious!

Apple has done many lawsuits in the past. And one was about their logo where
it was hard for me to find similarities that may infringe with patents or copy-
rights of the Apple company in Cupertino (read here). This time I think, they’ve
gone too far! A small tea room owner got sued for her logo she has patented.

How PR doesn’t work out well…

What’s the best advertisement you can have today? TV? No! Radio? Probably!
Newspapers and magazines? Probably… but the best public advertisement is,
in my opinion, the Internet and independent blogs. But the PR department of
Sony Ericcson seems to have missed the time shifting and the modern times.

Asian gameshows – indignity guranteed!

Usually, gameshows follow only one motto (at least they do in the western
countries): Win, win, win, win (by solving quizzes, tasks or other stuff).
However in the land of the rising sun, it seems that public humiliation is
ignored when the dough is calling. So seen on YouTube…

Not everybody is suitable for a luxury car!

This strange video shows that the holder (italian guy according to the italian
license plate) totally misunderstood the usage of a power cleaning hose. Most
of all car holders know, that it is only used to remove very crusty dirt, the
brushes in the washing facility cannot remove. But the interior of the car?

And the pixel race goes on…

So just few days ago I have shown that the new phone displays in the upcoming devices
with Android will have displays with approx. 346 ppi and thus little sharper than the
Retina display in the iPhone 4. Today I stumbled upon news that Toshiba plans to make
displays with a whopping 2560×1600 resolution on 6-inch displays.

Storage crash – Wine spill!

Usually, Boards tend to acoustically notify you about a forecoming collapse.
The following video shows that a shelf, that has worked fine for 31 years, can
instantly collapse without further notice. In that case, more than 6000 wine
bottles crashed and flooded the market with lots of wine.

The telephone gets 150 years old!

Today, the phone gets 150 years old. Johann Philipp Reis, a german physicist and inventor

ear. The receiver is getting the emitted electric pulses from the sending unit that has a tube
to catch the sound. in 1861 he publicly presented his communication-invention.

The moment of silence…

I bet you have wondered why it became so silent on my blog where every day
had at least one entry. Well… I had a very sad moment on Tuesday, October
18th when my dad died very surprisingly almost at noon to Tuesday. Therefore
I was in mourning for the last week and decided not to blog for that time.

Have you ever wondered about the strange antennas you can see when you travel from
munich to Zurich via Lindau and are about to reach Buchloe? Well, I also have asked
myself what that strange antenna-buildup is for. A research on Wikipedia finally answered
my question and brought up some interesting information.

This really shocking video comes  from Foshan, China. In midst of a shopping
strip, a two years old girl is walking on the street. The driver of a small van
however did not see the girl or ignored her for whatever reason. He probably
heard a damped thump and stopped…

Fun for the start of the week…

I hate grey days. They make me somewhat depressive! So here’s some
video stuff for you to sweeten the week’s start although weather appears to
be grey and cold. That’s autumn! The steps to wintertime aren’t far away any-
more. I am interested to see how much snow this year may come down (if any).

Lightshows on landmarks

Yesterday, Rosiv has shown me impressive videos of lightshow projected on
landmarks. These lightshows mostly try to integrate into the structure well and
thus add a 3D effect on it. On August 19th and 20th 2011 at Georgentor in
Dresden there was the Intel Visibly Smart Experience Lightshow 3D .

Back to the everyday life…

So, this is the sunday post of me realizing that Rosiv is back in Munich again. Strange but yet
normal: You really miss good friends when they return to their home. Knowing that it will
take some months until you see them again. Well, the weekend was a real nice change to the
average days and discovering some Geocaches also made some fun although we didn’t…

Although The one day was real short for a tour thru Bern, I decided to show Rosiv
some places I really like about Bern. So our tour mostly went thru the old town of
Bern. Starting at Zytglogge walking down to the Münster then going on to the
Bärengraben. Later we went down to the Matte (a borough of Bern) to the Aare.

Now THAT’S a talented barkeeper…

Barkeeping can be a real hard job especially when you’re serving drinks in a

Martini Bar at Constellation hotel, a barkeeper got an idea how to solve the time
issue and “invented” a good way how to serve multiple drinks in one serve!

Logi… WHAT?!? – Logicool?

When browsing on Wikipedia and reading an article on Palto Alto, CA, I also
stumbled over Logitech who have a headquarter in Palo Alto. So I thought,
hey, why not read about Logitech once in a while. During my reading I noticed,
that in Japan, Loitech seems to be “Logicool” and thought of a plagiarism.

Gingerbread-Hearts in Germany

Nothing special, you may say? I agree with you in most times. You see them almost on
every fair, even at parties they appear more and more. So why this blog entry then if
they’re not so special? Since these gingerbread-hearts get manufactured by machine
more and more, all that has to be done, is the sugar-frame and inscript to be applied to it.

Autumn and winter at the same time?

Impossible, you say? Well, seems not. In Switzerland at higher exposed locations, the
temperatures have dropped below zero. Snow fell down under 1000 metres and in some
locations, the fresh snow amount was 70 cm and up. A cold wave from the north brought
polar air to the south over Europe and temperatures have dropped by 15 to 25 °C.
