Billboard: New Sonos CEO Patrick Spence Looking Ahead
Tue, Jan 17th 2017 8:33p   Volker Weber
Billboard: What is Sonos focused on for the new year? Patrick Spence: Really there's three things: There's voice. There's streaming music and that's just exploding, you see that obviously in the U.S. with streaming revenue overtaking everything else and growing the industry again, which is awesome. And then the third thing is the push around the connected home. Meaning there's a lot more products around the home that will emit sound and we think they should be emitting sounds through Sonos

Surface Pro 4 :: JustWrite
Tue, Jan 17th 2017 5:42p   Volker Weber
On iOS and Mac I use iA Writer when writing copy. It's just plain text, no formatting whatsoever. On Surface I went back to Word Mobile, which is complete overkill and often distracts me with auto-format, smart quotes, auto-link and similar helpers. I really need something that I can take fullscreen and type away. I just found a program that does exactly that. It does not even have a file menu. You can only have one text and that autosaves. The screenshot above shows JustWrite next to Twitter,

Surface Pro 4 :: Cold start

This is how long my Surface Pro 4 takes from releasing the power button until Windows Hello recognizes me. That's pretty quick isn't it? No Enterprise boat anchor attached, of course.

Everytime I shut down Windows, I get this error message. Should I be concerned or just ignore it?

How to customize your Surface Pen
Mon, Jan 16th 2017 1:24p   Volker Weber
Matthias asked me this morning how he can select which of his two OneNote programs he could launch when pressing the button on his Surface Pen. I told him to use the Surface app, which eventually lead him to the correct panel. This setting has moved from the Surface app into Windows 10 Settings/Devices/Pen & Windows Ink.

What I learned from Brad Smith at #DLD17
Sun, Jan 15th 2017 4:45p   Volker Weber
My main takeaways from Brad Smith’s interview at DLD17 in Munich might be a bit different from others. The main headline will be that Smith says that the law has to catch up with digital technologies. What I find more interesting is his explanation how that came to be. It has been 31 years since the law governing IT, privacy and e-commerce was passed in the United States. So what happened in 1986? A Republican President (Ronald Reagan) and a Democratic Speaker of the House (Tip O’Neill) wer

Zweite Woche der New Year Challenge #dontbreakthechain
Sun, Jan 15th 2017 10:05a   Volker Weber
Letzte Woche haben wir sieben Tage mit drei Ringen gefeiert. Für viele völlig normal, für andere ein Vorsatz für das neue Jahr. Die Scheffin hat keine Apple Uhr, aber ein Misfit Ray und hat ihr tägliches Ziel erreicht. Das Ray trägt sie seit September und wir haben letzte Woche zum ersten Mal neue Batterien eingelegt, 3x Renata 393. Man muss das Band also nie laden und auch nicht abnehmen, weil es wasserdicht ist. Das Ray hat sich bewährt. Es zeichnet Bewegung und Schlaf auf, es sy
