Heeelp…. needed … badly.

This is a completely private problem. My monster number one got a camcorder for Christmas. Nothing special there, but she needs a possibility to cut her movies. She knows by now iMovie for iOS pretty well and would like to transfer her movies to my old iPad 2 and cut them there (which isn’t a very good idea, I admit, but I don’t want her to borrow my Mac all the time either, neither does my wife). And we have the connection kit for the SD card. The video standard is: AVCHD standard

I can’t change electronic devices like my underpants. I always wait till things really break and then I change. My iPhone 4 still does the trick. This blog still runs on Lotus Foundations and my Mac Book Pro is a mid 2009. I had a hard disk crash lately but with Time Machine changing the disk is painless … provided one has all the passwords ready on paper and not only in the Key Chain (hint hint). By the way, an SSD does wonders to an old Mac. The speed gain is amazing. A week ago m

“Microsoft Security Departement” is on the loose again

They are back. It isn’t Microsoft obviously. Unfortunately I wasn’t prepared for a really funny session this time. When the idiot asked for the windows key, I insulted him a bit and hung up. To bad. Had more fun with them in the past.

I think most of you have done the same thing. We just abandoned ibmverse.com. Once in a while, I have a look: Anything new? “First Steps” is still entirely in English. Way better than the Polish, Swedish and I don’t know what mix at the beginning, but still not in German. Help is, but that isn’t the point for showing of to prospective customers, or is it? New features? Not that I have seen anything. Still as crippled as in the beginning. After my first review – whi

It’s not about Verse, but about MyWatch.

After long hours thinking about what to write about Verse Basic, I decided not to write any review about it. It just does not help anybody. But I would like to talk about My Watch. Amazing piece of technology. It is pretty straight forward to use and does not have any clutter to find your way through. My best features are:It tells me exactly how much time I have left, until my train departs. Even during the night. The illumination for the dark phases of my life is solar-powered. The actual d

It does make sense to buy good stuff. I am too poor to buy crap. My daughter No. 2 had a Nikon Coolpix 2700 for about not even two years. As it happens with kids, she dropped it. Boing. No more pictures. Big tears. I am not going to buy another one, just to keep her happy. Nope, but who knows, it would be probably repairable. Therefore I contacted the Nikon service center here in Switzerland and told them my problem. They said, that for this model and the problem I described, the price of the

Now I got my account and I am playing around with it. First impressions: It does look better than iNotes, or not? I am not sure. I can’t figure out, how to add a sender to my address book? Does anybody know, how to change the initials in the circles? When I compose an email and start typing the address, it get’s ugly. Way too slow. I really want to get into it and see how it works. If you are game, would you send me please emails to christian.tillmanns (at) ibmverse.com? I will no

What do we have today? Since ConnectED a lot of things have happened, but for me it all started at the Connect 2015 in Zürich. As every year, I did a long blog post about it. I took 14 pages of notes and still managed to get it somehow wrong. Or did I really? The thing that made me “famous” was, that I said, that Scott said, that Jeff said IBM wants half a billion IBM Verse users. That was on 9 of march. On the 17th Volker Weber had a meeting with Jeff, who said, that somebody (me)

Having Trouble registering for IBM Verse?
Tue, Apr 7th 2015 9:08a   Christian Tillmanns
Just found some fine print in the Verse support forum: If you have trouble registering, having an account created for you, or if you’ve forgotten your password, please send an email to WebMaster@ibmverse.com I am going to wait, even though Vowe thinks, that I have broken the waiting list by registering several times. Serves me right.

IBM? Why?

I try to register for Verse. No success. For the umpteenth time. With several email addresses. Since last summer. Not that I need it, it just about going to the cloud with IBM or not? I would at least like to test it.

IBM Verse Freemium is DEAD
Fri, Mar 13th 2015 4:02a   Christian Tillmanns
What can change in a week. Last week in Zürich Scott Souder said IBM Verse Freemium will not be a crippled version. So much for that. Nice move from IBM to stab Scott in the back. Now it is a preview version that is so useless, that IBM might what to turn that server of again. That would save a few bucks in electricity. IBM Verse Support Forum (thank’s to Karl-Henry Martinsson) IBM really does not get it (… again). Somehow Vowes comment about the Village Idiot comes to mind. Let

Soul or Numbers – Sports for Developers
Tue, Mar 10th 2015 1:54p   Christian Tillmanns
A year ago Vowe started walking. Today he is doing at least a hundred kilometers a week. This is great. It certainly changed his life. If you are a “numbers athlete” you can do that, too. I am not. Also a year ago I felt I had to do something. I sensed, that I wasn’t up to speed anymore while moguls skiing. I have never been really fat. 10 years ago I was at my worst with slightly over 80 kilo, today I am down to 75 again. My BMI was never out of the normal range. Therefore I

ConnectEd in Zürich – Old Boys meeting

I am not going to bore you with a lot of technical news about IBM Verse and stuff, but first, I want to thank the IBM partners and distributors, who actually run the show. IBM provides rooms and some speakers, the partners do all the rest, as I was told. Great job, really. This time, there were more C-Level tracks half as long as a technical session. I suppose that was to allow for the lower attention span of the C-Levels, therefore I will do the same thing here and give those with a lot of mee
