Tell me your Android patch level

I believe in collaboration. So let's put our heads together. I have created a Google form where you can help me gather data about Android security patch levels. The patch levels have a date attached to them. You find it in Settings/About. Also add the brand and model of your device and the Android version. If you know on which day it was available, also fill out the last data, which is not mandatory. Here is the form >

Nexus or BlackBerry, these are the only phones with quick monthly Android security patches. Lenovo just started shipping their new flagship Motorola Z with the May patch. That's a brand new phone with two month old security level, and apparently they have no plans for shipping monthly patches. From now on, I will check the security patch level and report it. And then come back within a month if I see or do not see the next patch coming in. Vote with your money and only buy secure devices.

The cultural renaissance of the Art Deco-era’s rolling sculptures
Sun, Jul 24th 2016 12:11p   Volker Weber
This October, a new exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Art will display a number of Art Deco-era cars and motorcycles under the title ‘Rolling Sculptures’. We could think of no better person to explain their flourishing status as dynamic pieces of modern art than curator Ken Gross… More > [Thanks, Vesey]

4.3 kg (or 9.5 lb) was the weight of my 'luggage' on my New York trip. That includes all the gear, toothbrush, toothpaste, a fresh shirt every morning, underwear and the bag itself. No need to leave anything behind at the bell hop when you check out. No wheels, just a messenger bag thrown over your shoulder.

Installed the latest update and the Microsoft Crapware is back. You have one week to get the new advertising platform Windows 10 for free. That is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will never come back, I'm sure.

In Zeiten der Krise kann man erkennen, was guter Qualitätsjournalismus leistet. Statt atemlos Gerüchte, Meinungen und Stimmungen zu verstärken, einfach die Fakten zusammentragen. Nein, einfach ist das falsche Wort. Was einfach aussieht, bedarf jahrelanger Übung und Disziplin. Meine Favoriten: Die Zeit und Deutsche Welle. Sehr gute Arbeit, vielen Dank. Ganz schlimm, einige Journalistendarsteller auf Twitter.

Headset recommendation

I was asked which headset I would recommend for this profile. - pure telephony, no music features needed - small and lean as possible - budget EUR 300,- #1 makes it a Plantronics Voyager, #2 makes it the Edge model. #3 is too much money. They are way cheaper.

Stuff that works :: Olloclip Active Lens

This is one of my favorite things. Olliclip makes many lenses for iPhone, but this is by far my favorite. When I travel, it just wear it around my neck. When I am shooting photos with the iPhone, I can grap the lens with my other hand and remove it from the lanyard. The Active Lens has two lenses: a 2x telephoto and an ultra-wide lens. And they work on both cameras, main camera (iSight) and front facing (FaceTime). You will hardly ever need the telephoto on the front facing camera, but it'S
