Back in November 2016 I wrote about my decision to work with an 9,7″ iPad Pro exclusively. I stopped using any other computer, sold all my Mac equipment and only kept the accompanying Apple Watch and iPhone. I opted for a Logitech CREATE keyboard and the Apple Pencil and hoped that this step might change my entire tech outfit. I kept using this setup for about 9 months and was quite satisfied with the iPad Pro’s performance even under advanced […]
While staying in Melbourne in February 2017, I chose to buy a mobile hotspot to stay online with the various devices I had with me. As in 2016, I chose Vodafone as the service provider, since they seem to offer the best network, coverage, value for money and data options.I bought a 4G pocket wifi R216H mobile hotspot with a 30 day 8GB prepaid option for AUD 59 (about USD 45 or EUR 43).

After many years of “Flash ain’t dead yet” this might finally be the beginning of its last chapter. This might be a good time to take a look at Steve Jobs’ open letter “Thoughts in Flash” from 2010. “Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice. Flash is a successful […]
My new phone: Motorola Razr V3i. The battery is good for many days but I don’t get how I could have used it’s UI for years without going crazy. And I clearly remember it being one of the better ones. Well anyway, … it will do just fine whenever I want to be less smart on the go.
Personally, I was absolutely certain I would buy the iPhone 6 when I went to the Apple Store a few months back. For sure, I didn’t want a bulky mini tablet for a phone… so the iPhone 6 Plus was out of the question. When I first tried the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, they both seemed huge in comparison to my outdated iPhone 5S. None of the two I could operate with one hand, reachability feature or not. For […]
