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
Thu, Dec 1st 2016 9:17p   Volker Weber
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 >

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

PRIV has some not so obvious features
Thu, Nov 24th 2016 11:00p   Volker Weber
If you are buying a PRIV there are a few things to discover that are not so obvious, depending on whether you are coming from a BlackBerry or an Android angle. The most important thing to understand is the keyboard. You can use the hardware keyboard or an onscreen keyboard. You can configure them to support multiple languages. Mine is set to German and American English. It will suggest words in both languages, depending on what you are writing in the current sentence. That prediction is actually

BlackBerry PRIV für 320 €
Thu, Nov 24th 2016 4:07p   Volker Weber
Als BlackBerry den PRIV letztes Jahr auf den Markt brachte, mussten sie einen Preis von 699 US-Dollar vor Steuern, in Deutschland sogar 779 € aufrufen. Das Gerät war mit gebogenem Samsung-Display, Hardware-Tastatur, 18 MP-Kamera und sehr guter Fertigungsqualität einfach zu aufwändig. Ein Preis, der sich am Markt nicht erzielen ließ, wie wir damals vermuteten und heute wissen. Als dann der DTEK60 vor kurzem erschien, war der Preis schon auf 499 &

Das 'weltweit sicherste Android Smartphone' soll das DTEK50 laut BlackBerry sein und begründet das unter anderem mit prompten Sicherheitsupdates. Und die bleiben im November erneut aus. More >
