Samsung Galaxy S8 :: The verdict
Sun, Apr 23rd 2017 11:41a   Volker Weber
I have used the Galaxy S8 for a week, and by the end of the month, it will be back at Samsung. By and large it behaved exactly like I expected. But I have softened by judgement somewhat. The S8 is an almost perfect smartphone. There are only two compromises: Samsung had to move the fingerprint sensor to the back, next to the camera. It would have been better placed underneath the camera, but that is where the battery and the wireless charging sit. Yes, you will touch the camera, but that is n

The Apple Airpods are my most used headset. They fit my ears, they work well, they sound reasonably nice, they are easy to carry and charge. And when you wear them, you look like a complete idiot. And there are things that they cannot play well. When I need to be alone with myself, when I want to blast my ears, I need something more substantial. Enter the Marshall Monitor BT, an over-the-ear-headset with Bluetooth connection to my iPhone and a cable for everything else. They fit my head a

BlackBerry stumbles over April security fix
Fri, Apr 21st 2017 9:12a   Volker Weber
DTEK50 came again first with the April 5 fix and then there was radio silence. Now we learned that BlackBerry had difficulties integrating all the individual patches. But they are handling it differently from the DTEK50 delay in December/January. This time they released the (partial) April 1 fix to PRIV (and DTEK60?). It only weights in at about 20 MB taking the build to AAK689. I wonder how fast they can recover for the May patch which is due in two weeks.

In October 2011 Ginni Rometty assumed the role of president and CEO of IBM. A year later she took on the added role of chairman of IBM. She is also part of a White House business-advisory council under the Trump Administration. Five years seems to be quite a long time to right this ship. Whatever she is doing, it isn't working.

When you unpack the S8, you will see the best Android phone on the market. Design, performance, display, cameras, everything is top-notch and you will not find any other device from any vendor that can hold a candle to this phone, and that includes Apple. It's beautiful, the display wraps around the sides and almost covers the complete front. And then Samsung ruins it all with their software. Android Nougat 7.0 is already outdated, Touchwhiz is now called Samsung Experience, and when you get

How do you install a new version of Microsoft Office?
Tue, Apr 18th 2017 12:15p   Volker Weber
Looks like an easy question, right? You download the installer. You run the installer. Done. Well, yes, if you are a user with one or two PCs. No, if you work in enterprise IT. Life in enterprise IT is very different. You don't run an installer. You beg for permission to run it. At the core of the problem is complexity. You serve a business that has users and managers for those users. Some of those managers are tasked with liaison with your enterprise IT organisation. On the IT side of t

Facebook has the reverse Midas touch. Everything it touches turns to crap, while making tons of money on the back of their users. In their quest to destroy all competition they piled Snapchat features on Instagram as "stories". Now they are adding Pintrest boards as "collections", agressively promoting them. Add their quest to "grow" your network by pushing suggestions. Facebook already pushed me out when they started forcing their timeline instead of mine. Now they are doing it again with

@vowe Software and security updates will continue to be handled by @BlackBerry for more details check out https://t.co/eAOaOX8nQ1— BlackBerry Mobile (@BBMobile) April 17, 2017 Since there is absolute radio silence from BlackBerry about potential upgrades to Android Nougat for DTEK50, DTEK60 or PRIV, I asked both @BlackBerry and @BBMobile who is responsible for communications about upgrades and updates. The answer is quite telling. @BBMobile, a TCL entity, says that @BlackBerry is

Mich überkommt manchmal der heilige Zorn, wenn ich den Unsinn lese, der sich so in den Köpfen festgesetzt hat. Und dann halte ich meine Klappe und schluck es runter. Heute nicht. Da sitzen Leute selbstgefällig auf ihrer alten Windows-Version rum und ignorieren alles, was Microsoft in den letzen Jahren in die Verbesserung der Software gesteckt haben. Dabei könnten sie längst auf der sichersten Windows-Version sein, die es jemals gab. "Aber Microsof
