Somebody looking for work: So far, I completed fifteen Notes mail to Exchange/Office 365. Eight using Binary Tree's CMTe and seven using the Quest/Dell's Migrator for Notes to Exchange. That is quite impressive. However, if I may dispense a piece of advice: that works is eventually going away. Build new skills. MEAN?

Photo Franz Mattes Hololens is everywhere at the Microsoft Technical Summit 2016 in Darmstadt. Partners showcase their ability to write software for the platform. And Microsoft offered me a 30 minute private session with a Hololens. Hololens is not a peripheral tethered to a powerful PC, unlike the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. Both of them are Virtual Reality Headsets that immerse you in a different world. Hololens is also not a a simple diving goggles style smartphone accessory like the Galaxy G

Sonos 7 out with two huge improvement
Tue, Dec 6th 2016 3:48p   Volker Weber
I have had no communication from Sonos on this release, but Sonos 7 is now live in the App Store. And that comes with two huge improvements, one of which is unknown so far. You can now play on Sonos from Spotify. That means, right within the Spotify app you can select the Sonos players you want to play on. Nothing goes away. You can still do it from the Sonos app. For controlling your Sonos speakers from the Spotify app you need to set up a connection between your Sonos ID and your Spotify ID.

Microsoft Technical Summit 2016 in Darmstadt #msts2016

Der Microsoft Technical Summit hat sich in Darmstadt etabliert. 1300 Teilnehmer, ausverkauft. Und ich habe einige bekannte Gesichter gesehen, die ich vorher nur von IBM-Konferenzen kannte. Und natürlich andere Teilnehmer aus den Vorjahren. Scott Guthrie war angereist, um im wesentlichen die gleiche Rede wie in New York zu halten. Er hatte sogar das selbe Hemd an: Und wenn man ein bisschen genauer hinschaut, dann sieht man, er benutzt Google Chrome, Adblock und Spotify: Morgen g

Google is releasing the December patch and I would like to understand when BlackBerry delivers the update to which devices. I will not spam your inbox with links to this form, I promise. Just asking you to fill out the form when you are receiving your BlackBerry Android security forms. It just takes a few seconds and should work on your phone. This is what I am collecting: Model Where you bought it (Carrier, Shop BB, etc) Android security patch level (date) Model number When you installed the

Don't break the chain :: one and a half years

One and a half years later I am still doing 600 kcal a day, 30 minutes of exercise and 12 hours of standing up. I missed one day by 3 kcal on the Move goal. That is why the move goal only shows 78 instead of 79 weeks. How Apple gets to 126 perfect weeks from that, I have no idea. This program has worked out very well for me. I am stronger, thinner and lighter. No Touch Bar though. A photo posted by Volker Weber (@volkerweber) on Nov 9, 2016 at 8:56am PST

Lenovo Yoga 910 looks very convincing

The other day the son of my friend asked me for advice. He had waited all year for a new MacBook Pro to replace his ageing MacBook Air. But he did not like the range that Apple came out with. Too expensive for him. He wanted 512 GB storage and that meant either 2200 or 1940 € with or without the new Touch Bar, plus dongles. I suggested another MacBook Air which he did not like because of the screen res. Then I suggested the Yoga 910 but warned he would need to use Windows. He said, no

BlackBerry December Security Patches
Sat, Dec 3rd 2016 3:14p   Volker Weber
Here is my educated guess of what is going to happen in December. First you will see an update for the PRIV, then a few days later for the DTEK60. DTEK50 will receive the November update that was never released, followed by the December update a bit later. BlackBerry is not communicating about what happened to the DTEK50 November patch. The most likely cause is that they tried to bundle an operating system fix with a security fix and subsequently failed a test. The bigger problem here is that

I received two Live Photos today. And they should not have been Live Photos, because nothing was moving in the pictures. What is a Live Photo? It's a short movie that shows what happened right before you shot that frame. You see them when swiping through your photos. Live photos are really nice when you take pictures of people, pets, or anything that moves quickly. But they come at a cost. Since the camera has to record a live video stream it cannot play out its full potential in low light. Ru

Pebble, it was nice knowing you

Pebble booth at IFA 2016 Pebble built the first watch I wanted to wear after having a naked wrist for more than ten years. Charge it once a week, wear it carefree, get notifications from the phone. I loved the original watch. At first I could not use it since I was on Lumias, but when I went iPhone only, Pebble was my companion. I did not like Pebble Steel in matte black with matching steel band, but eventually the stainless steel model with leather band grew on me. But it was always a geek
