Kurzes Kabel für SONOS PLAY:1|
Fri, Jul 29th 2016 8:53a Volker Weber
Der PLAY:1 hat einen speziellen Winkelstecker, der ins Gehäuse greift. Ich habe einen PLAY:1 Pure Black auf der Küchentheke direkt bei einer Steckdose stehen und brauche eigentlich nur ein sehr kurzes schwarzes Kabel. Heute habe ich bei Flexson solche Kabel gefunden.

Can you make a secure Android phone? I think you can.|

Not too long ago, when you were a BlackBerry fan, then Android was the enemy. A big pile of code, quickly hobbled together, with loads of security issues. Never in your life would you deploy this PoS in your enterprise.
Then BlackBerry launched an Android Phone.
I understand why BlackBerry needs a popular platform. But how do they make Android secure? The only thing I got to was "security is in our pedigree" b/s. I had to cut deeper. I tried to go through PR but they could not get anybody to
Can you help BlackBerry?|

A week ago I was at the BlackBerry Security Summit. I asked BlackBerry for the presentation slides since I could not attend all parallel tracks. And they failed, big time.
If you are a customer, you probably have a bigger lever than I have. If you have the slides, just share them with me.
Picture Password AWOL|

DTEK50 screen on the left, PRIV screen on the right. What's missing? Picture Password. I hope that is coming in an update.
Both DTEK50 and PRIV do not have a fingerprint reader. So you have to enter a PIN or a Password to unlock. The Android pattern is just too weak. But Picture Password is a great way to unlock your device. See this tutorial for BlackBerry 10:
I use it on the PRIV, I also want it on the DTEK50.
DTEK50 Size Comparison|

It's pretty hard to see in photos, but the DTEK50 is almost exactly the same size as a Nexus 5x and about half a millimeter thinner. That is a very comfortable size and sits right between the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
147.0 x 72.5 x 7.5 mm | 5.2" | 135 g | DTEK50
147.0 x 72.6 x 7.9 mm | 5.2" | 136 g | Nexus 5x
138.2 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm | 4.7" | 143 g | iPhone 6s
158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm | 5.5" | 192 g | iPhone 6s Plus
Microsoft Pix gives the iPhone camera an artificial brain|
Thu, Jul 28th 2016 3:22a Volker Weber
Microsoft Pix captures a burst of 10 frames with each shutter click – some from before the tap – and uses artificial intelligence to select up to three of the best, unique shots. Before the remaining frames are deleted, the app uses data from the entire burst to remove noise, and then intelligently brightens faces, beautifies skin and adjusts the picture’s color and tone. These best, enhanced images are ready in about a second.
I have been testing this for an hour. Verdict

Am Mittwoch hat BlackBerry sein zweites Android-Smartphone angekündigt. Nun konnten wir es bereits kurz ausprobieren.

I shot a few photos and uploaded them to Flickr. Full automatic, iPhone 6S Plus vs DTEK50 back camera. All of these are "difficult" photos, mostly for the lack of light.
BlackBerry DTEK50 :: I like|

Picked up my DTEK50 today. And I quite like it, Do you see it? Or do you not see it? This is my first BlackBerry that does not say BlackBerry on the front. It's just a non-descriptive touchscreen phone.
