The Ninth Circuit Court for Appeals in the USA has put down a lawsuit of many private
persons who have filed for a lawsuit against Cell network carriers who allow the NSA to
tap the line of customers without prior notice and without a definite suspected case.
It seems, the NSA still holds tight to their right to spy on innocent people!

Another glitch detected in eased WLAN setup!

It seems the popular WPS technology has another set-back to deal with! While
the setup of WPA-based encryption is safe in most scenarios, the handling with the
long security keys can be a real hassle. That’s why the WiFi consortium brought out
WPS which lets one set up WiFi-Connections by simply pairing a device with a code.

The iPad 3 – Coming to us in February 24th?

So… Apple again. Rumors say that the new iPad 3 will be presented on February 24th, as
it is the birthday of Steve Jobs who passed away this year on October 5th. What’s most
interesting, is that there are also plans for a small form-factor iPad with a 7inch screen.
It’s probably only a rumor but hey, other companies have all sizes in their portfolio!

Last christmas holiday, last days of 2011

So this was it for this year’s christmas. Another 366 days for the kids to count down until
christmas 2012. You know, they foretell that on December 20th, 2012 the world will go
down as the mayan calendar has said. Do you believe in such ancient forecasts or do you
think they’re just bad tales such as other world’s end scenarios in the past?

2 days till Christmas – are you packed yet?

Do you feel the christmas spirit yet? No? Well here in Berne, snowfall keeps on and
making the landscape white. Just as one would wish for christmas. But on the other
hand it worries to see that the temperatures increase again and letting the snow melt
before christmas will arrive. This year’s winter is a bit odd in my opinion.

WordPress and FancyBox 3.x

It seems as if also my blog cannot be spared form plugin issues.In this case it was the newest
release of FancyBox for WordPress which is, in my opinion, a cool plugin to pep up the blog
especially when using lots of images in a post or page. So what did I do to get the newest
version to work properly. The author posted a tweet asking everyone to default the settings,

Snow, trams and herd behavior…

So it is winter… finally! Every year the people are hoping for snow for christmas here in Bern.
This year it’s a bit late as the last two days were the only days where we got 10cm of snow!
Although show is a synonym for delayed traffic, cars, busses, trams, no matter what, people
should usually know how to prepare for it and try to reduce delay times as good as possible.

Zynga looses stock market value by 6%!

As I have written just this saturday, today the stock papers of Zynga had to proove theirselves
on the market today. And the start wasn’t that good! Actually, Zynga is at 9 dollar per share.
Their deepest dip was at 8.8 dollar per share and thus 6% less than the opening value!
Okay, the NASDAQ didn’t have a good start either but it seems there’s some doubt around!

Samsung vs. Apple – Smile please!

Well… Christmas is in the Go and if you thought, They’re giving Apple a break
(or vice versa), then you’re definitely wrong. Samsung again tries to raise three
more lawsuits (in total 7 then) to even up with Apple, who claim 6 lawsuits

Audio in the change of time

In early 1940’s first attempts to create Stereo sound have been made by Disney, the real
stereo sound has been attempted to broadcast in 1940’s too however with mediocre
success. The first really usable results came in 1969. In this time most music has been
recorded in true stereo and even movie theaters were able to show features in stereo.

Tricking a bearded dragon…

Cats are tricked by a laser and try to chase it, dogs can be tricked with a throw
move of a wood branch, other animals can be tricked by various actions. In
this video it’s a bearded dragon (a genus of lizards) that is being tricked by a
video game called ant chase where you have to tap on virtual insects.

Fascinating architecture!

An architecture office in Rotterdam has released information about a new skyscraper
prtoject in Asia. The Building looks like a smaller version of the Twin Towers from
New York. The small but irritating detail (from the view of the USA) is the “platform”
that interconnects the two towers. It looks like the explosion cloud of the plane crash.

SIM, Mini-SIM, Micro-SIM, Nano-SIM…

You all know these Cards you need to have in order to activate your cell phone.
While the first cards had a size of 85.6x54mm, as the phones of earlier times
were ridiculously big and heavy, modern smartphones happen to need smaller
and smaller cards. The current smallest factor is Micro-SIM.

See the wreck of the Titanic!

All you’ve got to do is to fork out about 65’000 simoleons. Quite expensive
but the 12 days travel includes a first-class catering, a three-hours dive to the
wreck with a show-around and after the dive you get back to a hotel to enjoy
the rest of the vacation with a real luxury lunch and all it takes around.

A real expensive car trashing in Japan

Yikes! When you think of Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche & Co., you also think of  $$$!
And lots of them! On December 4th, 13 cars were part of an accident due to massively
speeding! Instead of driving with 80 km/h, the drivers decided to raise their speed to
estimated 150 km/h. And even the wet and slippery street did not stop them to do so!

Well… it’s december now but when you look outside, the green meadows and

while Switzerland usually tends to have the first snow in November-beginning
this year the snow has some hold-up. Maybe a hint from global warming?

What you should avoid when drunk!

Things you shouldn’t do when you’re drunk are for example: Driving! DUI is a
crime in most countries of the earth. This Camaro driver however still chose
to drive home fully loaded. Bad luck that he too the wrong “target” to stop his
car. The hit target was nothing less than a police car doing DUI checks!

Dogs shouldn’t booze!

This dog seems to have had one too much. Unluckily, this hairy friend chooses
to stand in a rather unfortunate location, namely a small puddle. When tired-

away from puddles for some time – especially when he’s on a hangover…
