Cool ads

videoI really hate ads. Mostly they interrupt your favourite show, they distract you

Preping for update – Offline time

updateSo it’s time for an update. The webspace ran low and WordPress is bugging
me all time to finally do some update as my version is sorta outdated al-
though it is working fine for me. But for security reasons I finally gave in.

The urge and taste for good coffee…

…or: Why for heaven’s sake spend 2’300 CHF on a coffee machine? Well… let’s
start with the story of ugly-tasting coffee and what I’ve tried so far. At work we
have a Schaerer coffee machine that makes good coffee, real good coffee! But
for home use, this machine is a tad too big and too expensive (7’250 CHF).

And the iPad IS versatile and convenient!

Or… The Batter has a talent to hit balls the way it wasn’t supposed to be!
At least this older man had luck while filming a baseball game not to be
injured by a foul ball. It was only the iPad that got knocked down but
still seems to work well. Cool action though it was sorta quick!

While the gadgets from Apple still sell like fresh-made bread, it seems as if

value reached a new 2-year-low with “only” 389 US$ per share. Is this a

iPhone 5 domino

Dominoes with millions of stones are already very impressing. But what

make a competely animated domino image. Although it is said that spe-

Microsoft Windows 8.1 – Back to the roots?

According to some sources, it seems as if Microsoft has recognized that the
tiles surface isn’t everybody’s taste.  That’s true and there are many people
who avoid upgrading to Windows 8 for the very same reason. Even I do not
update to Windows 8 as I don’t like the tiles and the “flat” windows style.

Bomb terror in Boston

It seems as if the USA aren’t allowed to come to rest. Today, two bombs
have interrupted the Marathon currently ongoing. The explosions had
so much power to cause about 150 injuries and three dead among which

As it wouldn’t have been enough with all the bad news about webservices,

Samsung vs. LG

It seems as if Samsung has trouble with almost every bigger company that
seals with electronics. Now it’s LG who has sent inspectors to the offices of
Samsung to search for patent violations. LG states that it is a bit odd that
Samsung is releasing big-size OLEDs nearly at the same time as LG does.

And Star Wars is reachable…

What sounds like a bad joke or a nerd watching too much SciFi series, is
the hard truth. A guided laser system (LaWS as the US Navy calls it) is able
to seek and destroy potential dangerous flying objects. Tested with a drone
the ship burnt the birdie down into the ocean.

One thing we like about Amazon is the uncomplex way of ordering things
