BlackBerry KEYone :: A short update
Sat, May 27th 2017 7:57a   Volker Weber
KEYone continues to be my go-to Android phone, against strong competition. The simple reason is convenience. It's so easy to pick up from flat surface with one hand, it does not seem to need a case, and I am never confused which side is up. It does have one design flaw, that it shares with the DTEKs and the PRIV: the on button is on the wrong side. I often press the convenience key on the right side. Since it also turns on with the fingerprint reader, it's not really an issue though. BlackB

Seit Ginni Rometty Chefin bei IBM, sinken die Umsätze. Das muss nicht ursächlich sein, Aber um einmal Friedrich den Großen zu zitieren: "Er hat keine Fortune; ich kann Offiziers ohne Fortune nicht gebrauchen." Auf sinkende Umsätze reagiert Rometty mit Entlassungen. Kosten sparen, damit wenigstens der Gewinn stimmt. Dummerweise führt das wieder zu sinkenden Umsätzen. Entlässt man Verkäufer, gibt es weniger Abschlü

If had to make a choice, which port would you want on your compute?— Volker Weber (@vowe) May 24, 2017 This was a bit of a trick question. You can view it as choice between the past and the future. You can also view it as a question about convenience. I have literally hundreds of things that require a USB Type A connector and I have only three things that have a USB Type C connector. And they all came with a Type A to C cable. The question became interesting when Microsoft

This wasn't streamed live, but you can now revisit Panos Panay introducing the new Surface Pro. He is such a great presenter.

Diese Frage habe ich gestellt, weil ich nicht glauben will, dass wir uns ins Zukunft VR-Brillen vor das Gesicht hängen. Wie viele Frauen laufen halbblind durch's Leben, weil sie es nicht ertragen, mit einer Brille gesehen zu werden. Google hat das mit Glass bitter lernen müssen. Auch Bluetooth-Headsets, so praktisch sie sind, haben ein schlimmes Stigma und sind vor allem bei Kurier- und Taxifahrern anzutreffen. Da sind sie einfach zu nützlich, als dass sich jemand dar

What you need to know about the new Surface Pro
Tue, May 23rd 2017 1:04p   Volker Weber
Very similar to Surface Pro 4. Rounded edges. Plus 50 percent battery life! Intel 7th gen CPU (Kaby Lake) i5 goes fanless. Recommended! Pen no longer included. Loses the clip, but is faster and has better sensitivity. Kickstand folds down 165 degrees. New keyboard colors. All Alcantara. LTE option later this year. Order today. Ships in three weeks.

Aus der Reihe "Nutzloses Wissen", Folge 7816: Iris-Erkennung
Tue, May 23rd 2017 10:22a   Volker Weber
'Hacker' vom CCC haben herausgefunden, dass man mit einigem Aufwand 'ganz einfach' den Iris-Scanner eines Samsung S8 überlisten kann. So wie 'starbug', bürgerlich Jan Krissler, schon vor ein paar Jahren gezeigt hat, dass der Fingerabdruck-Scanner des iPhone auszutricksen ist. Handlungsempfehlung: "Wem die Daten auf seinem Telefon lieb sind oder wer sogar daran denkt, mit seinem Telefon bezahlen zu wollen,der greift statt auf die eigenen Körpermerkmale besser

KEYone :: An unlikely winner
Tue, May 23rd 2017 9:54a   Volker Weber
When I first touched Mercury, the phone that would become KEYone, I wasn't convinced. Who would want another BlackBerry? Now that I have one it needs to compete with other Android phones for the #2 spot behind the iPhone. And it's winning, hands down. This is not another boring and fragile slab of glass. It handles so well, it's easy to grab and I am never afraid to drop it. The rounded bezel makes it easy to pick up from a table, it is as tall as an iPhone Plus, but narrower. Last but not le

Bringing back the old Sonos enthusiasm
Tue, May 23rd 2017 6:40a   Volker Weber
Did you notice I haven't written anything substantial about the Playbase? I have seen it years ago in the lab, but I never actually heard it. I haven't even installed a new beta release this year. I turned into just another happy Sonos customer, enjoying my music every day. What happened? Sonos has grown into a big company with lots of people handling different things. And I ended up in the reporter bin. Send him a press release a day before we announce, and offer him a two weeks product te
