First time this has happened. I got the same item twice. One as a present from Jan and a second one paid for by myself. Thank you, Jan.

I did not think this could happen, but obviously there is a race condition. If you put something in your cart it's not immediately removed from the wish list, but only when you check out. Not a problem though. I have two bikes and the bell is really loud. Recommended.

100 weeks #dontbreakthechain
Sun, Apr 30th 2017 5:25p   Volker Weber
Another week, another month of not breaking the chain. It has now been 100 weeks since I started tracking with Apple Watch. Funny thing is that Apple credits me wirh 147 weeks of reaching all goals. The Apple Watch hasn't even been on the market for that long. But there is some truth to it. You know that I started on the UP24 and tried a few other products from Withings, Fitbit and Misfit before settling on Apple Watch. Since all of them synced into Apple Health that 147 weeks are very

Samsung Galaxy S8 :: A few additional observations
Sat, Apr 29th 2017 12:56p   Volker Weber
Before I return the S8 to Samsung a few additional observations, in no particular order: Battery life is much better than I expected. Even on the 3000 mAh battery of the smaller model. I never ran out of power and quick charge is really quick. When I first tried a curved screen on the S6 edge, I loved the screen and I hated how often I would misplace the cursor while typing. The S8 is completely different. Palm rejection is almost perfect. When reading or watching videos, I often wished t

New Slack Team space :: IBM Think

The Connect 2017 space went really well. That made me register a new Slack Team space for IBM Think, before that name was taken. I am growing membership very slowly. Currently there are only ten people in the space. I am also not opening up registration by domain. That was one of the things that did not work so well in the old space.

New update options for Windows 10, version 1703
Wed, Apr 26th 2017 8:23a   Volker Weber
Based on feedback from customers, we are making some adjustments to the updates that we are releasing for Windows 10, version 1703 (also known as the 'Creators Update'). With these changes, we will routinely offer one (or sometimes more than one) additional update each month. These additional cumulative updates will contain only new non-security updates, so they will be considered 'Updates'in WSUS and Configuration Manager. That is a very welcome change for Enterprise IT.

Is Slack a product or a feature?
Mon, Apr 24th 2017 2:35p   Volker Weber
This is a very good article on the difficulties you face when you try to replace email with something else. We have been struggling with this for years. Slack wants us to believe it is the future of collaboration. But is it truly a platform for that purpose or a readily replicable feature set? I have a pretty simple formula for the success of any tool: people will use it if they get more out of it than they put in. And from this article I learned (again), how Facebook & Co tip that bal

Samsung Galaxy S8 :: The verdict
Sun, Apr 23rd 2017 11:41a   Volker Weber
I have used the Galaxy S8 for a week, and by the end of the month, it will be back at Samsung. By and large it behaved exactly like I expected. But I have softened by judgement somewhat. The S8 is an almost perfect smartphone. There are only two compromises: Samsung had to move the fingerprint sensor to the back, next to the camera. It would have been better placed underneath the camera, but that is where the battery and the wireless charging sit. Yes, you will touch the camera, but that is n

Marshall Monitor BT

The Apple Airpods are my most used headset. They fit my ears, they work well, they sound reasonably nice, they are easy to carry and charge. And when you wear them, you look like a complete idiot. And there are things that they cannot play well. When I need to be alone with myself, when I want to blast my ears, I need something more substantial. Enter the Marshall Monitor BT, an over-the-ear-headset with Bluetooth connection to my iPhone and a cable for everything else. They fit my head a

BlackBerry stumbles over April security fix
Fri, Apr 21st 2017 9:12a   Volker Weber
DTEK50 came again first with the April 5 fix and then there was radio silence. Now we learned that BlackBerry had difficulties integrating all the individual patches. But they are handling it differently from the DTEK50 delay in December/January. This time they released the (partial) April 1 fix to PRIV (and DTEK60?). It only weights in at about 20 MB taking the build to AAK689. I wonder how fast they can recover for the May patch which is due in two weeks.
