Internet, Why So Blue?

Trying on the Apple Watch

Starting today, the Apple Watch can be preordered online and is available for try-on-sessions in local retail stores with an appointment. Appointments can be made on online or via the Apple Store iOS App since 9:01 AM this morning (April 10 2015).

Apparently things are not as bad as expected, since I got a slot at 11 AM and the store was far from crowded. Looks like the demand is not that crazy after all. I really like the way they chose to display the watch and must admit that trying it on is the most personal shopping experience at Apple’s stores yet. Any edition of the watch just looks great, although one might opt for the pricier versions in terms of variety and style options. But still, the rubber silicon whatever wristbands of the Sport edition feel far better than expected. Anyway, I am hooked and will be preordering today… an Apple Watch Sport in black, I might add.

Coffee in Paris

When visiting Paris, one should definitely spent some time seeing what needs to be seen, Notre-Dame, Arc de Triomphe, Les Invalides, la tour Eiffel and everything else.


All very nice. The rest of the time can be spent by sitting in cafés, drinking coffee, enjoying the sun. Good cafés are listed here and if you are wondering where you can enjoy these comforts on a budget, here is a Google Map of cafés offering coffee for 1 €.
