Please report your BlackBerry Android security updates

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
Sun, Dec 4th 2016 10:13p   Volker Weber
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 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

For some reason, people have gotten pretty interested in mobile security lately. So let’s talk about a secure messaging app called Signal. Install it, grab my .vcard, send me yours. Let's do this. More >

Just in time. I was running very low on inventory. Thank you, Armin!

Surface 3 reset to factory and re-installed
Fri, Nov 25th 2016 4:17p   Volker Weber
The failure to install Windows 10 Cumulative Update has cost me countless hours. And then I decided to reset the machine to factory and re-install it. Which was a piece of cake since everything lives in the cloud here at vowe's magic flying circus. I could not work with literally dozens of machines if anything was stored locally. Installation of Windows 10 was a breeze. Very few updates, and everything took care of itself. Surface 3 is back in business. I have only one ugly old Win32 applicati

Das ist ein Tupperware SmartSteanmer. Und den benutze ich, um gesund zu essen. Unten kommen vierhundet Milliliter Wasser rein, in den großen Topf darüber geputztes Gemüse, auf die Ebene darüber kann man zum Beispiel einen Fisch legen, dann Deckel drauf und in die Mikrowelle. Das dauert bei Kartoffeln oder Kohlrabi 20 Minuten, bei anderen auch weniger. Die oberen Schalen blocken übrigens die Mikrowellen. Nur das Wasser wird direkt erhitzt. Der Dampf
