BlackBerry Motion :: Don't worry about the battery. Ever.
Sun, Nov 19th 2017 8:21a   Volker Weber
I got the BlackBerry Motion on Tuesday and charged it overnight. Took it off the charger on Wednesday morning and then never recharged it until this morning. Four days. Even more impressive: within one hour on the charger it was back at 75%. That means you can use it all day and then recharge it in maybe half an hour. And that is the charger that came in the box. No additional purchase necessary. Even if you forget to recharge it, the battery should always last a second day. That is just prac

Control Spotify via Alexa on Sonos

Na also: @Spotify mit #Alexa auf @Sonos. Einfach als Standard in der Alexa-App einstellen. pic.twitter.com/PfAMeqhXfZ— Volker Weber (@vowe) November 18, 2017 Sonos has started beta support for Spotify and you don't have to do anything to make it work. I'd advise to set Spotify as your default music service in the Alexa app, but you can also tell Alexa to play from Spotify. If you have a Sonos One, you are all set. It just works. If you have an Echo speaker, you have to dir

Folgende Aufgabenstellung: Haus hat jede Menge Philips Hue. Jetzt gilt es, dumme Schalter von Gira (E2 55) für Deckenauslässe zu integrieren. Im Prinzip also: Schalter raus, neuen UP-Einsatz rein, Schalter darauf montieren. Busch-Jäger hat das, Gira nicht. Hue redet Zigbee.

Samsung had a disaster last year with the Gallery Note 7 battery last year. To turn the tide the company is now dumping big money on Youtubers, or as Casey calls them "Creators". Casey's problem is that he does not know much about technology. I bet he did not know that we could see all along he was using Twitter on iPhone (and the web) when he was pretending to have "always been the Android guy". When iOS had this terrible autocorrect bug that turned a simple "I" into "A (illegible)" it

What I want from a TV screen
Fri, Nov 17th 2017 8:54a   Volker Weber
I believe my perfect TV does not exist. But maybe you know better. Here is what I want (and don't want): A large 4k flat display, up to 100". Large is good. No 3D or curved glass. A TV satellite tuner for those moments I need to see live TV. Digital audio out via TOSlink. I don't need speakers. IR control for my Sonos. HDMI-CEC, USB Type A, several of each. All connectors in separate hide-away box. As little software as possible. No branding on the frame, or as little as possible.

How Apple TV has changed my TV consumption
Thu, Nov 16th 2017 10:06p   Volker Weber
People have asked me how I find the time for a more active livestyle, and I have two answers: no Facebook, no TV. This isn't the whole truth. I do browse Facebook occasionally, but I don't engage. And I do watch some TV shows and movies, but I only do this on my terms. No schedule, on demand only. Since the software on my 2012 Samsung TV is horrible, all the contents comes in through an Apple TV. When I got the chance to try the 4K model, I took it. This TV won't display in 4K, HDR or Dolb
