Ich kenne mich mit Kameras nicht aus und kann Sabine deshalb nicht raten, was man am besten kauft. Diese Bilder sind Ã¼berwiegend mit einer Lumix LX5 geschossen, die Videos und wenige Bilder mit einem iPhone. Die Ergebnisse sind ziemlich gut, wie ich finde. Aber es gibt zwei Limits:
1. Die LX-5 ist zu langsam und zu kurz, um VÃ¶gel zu fotografieren. Die sind zu weit weg und bewegen sich zu schnell.
2. Die AuflÃ¶sung der Bilder reicht nur fÃ¼r AbzÃ¼ge bis etwa DIN A4.
Also neue Kamera. Nebenbedingungen: kleines Budget, wenn mÃ¶glich Bildstabilisierung. Meine Idee wÃ¤re eine Bridge-Kamera mit 1"-Sensor wie Lumix FZ1000, Sony RX10 oder Canon PowerShot G3 X.
Habt Ihr eine bessere Idee? Oder will jemand gar seine tolle Kamera verkaufen, weil er sich zu Weihnachten noch was besseres gekauft hat?
Schau Euch in jedem Fall die Bilder an. Und folgt Sabine. :-)

Using your AirPods with Windows|
Thu, Jan 19th 2017 11:55a Volker Weber
Daniel asks if you can use your AirPods with your iThings and your Windows PC at the same time. Yes, you can. Strictly not at the same time, but they do work. You place them in the carrying case (did I mention you always put them in the carrying case?) and hold the button on the back of the case for seven seconds. Now they are discoverable and you can pair them from Windows. Your iThings will not forget your AirPods and you can pull them over.
However, if you take out an AirPod while connecte
Controlling your music from your Apple Watch|

Mattias said, he cannot control Google Play Music from the Apple Watch. It took me a while to understand he was confusing two ways you can control music from your Apple Watch. There is Music and there is Now Playing, as seen in the Apple Watch app on iPhone:
Now Playing shows the same thing as your lock screen or your control center. It is the app that is currently playing from the iPhone, or your Sonos controller, if you use that.
It will only let you control the volume, play/pau
Your questions about the AirPods|
Thu, Jan 19th 2017 8:22a Volker Weber
You had a couple of questions about AirPods control. Let me try to answer them by talking more about them in general.
You AirPods are three, not two things. Two earbuds, one case. Think of them as one. When you take the earbuds out of the case, they switch on, put them back, they switch off. There is no on/off switch. When you put them in the case, they charge very quickly. As long as there is juice in the battery of the case, it will fill them up. That is what the metal rings at the tip of t

AirPods don't have any physical controls. You can double tab them for calling up Siri. Or you can set this double tap to Play/Pause. One way or the other it looks kind of silly to tap on your ear. But how do you control the volume or skip a track? Simple: use your Apple Watch. The Now Playing glance lets you control the iPhone. And with that your AirPods.
Most of the time, you don't need these controls, because the AirPods are pretty smart. They know when they are in your ear. Take one out,

Yolocaust is a project by Israeli satirist and author Shahak Shapira that explores our commemorative culture by combining selfies from the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin with footage from Nazi extermination camps. The selfies were found on Facebook, Instagram, Tinder and Grinder. Comments, hashtags and "Likes" that were posted with the selfies are also included.
How to make Microsoft Word look like iA Writer|
Wed, Jan 18th 2017 4:00p Volker Weber
Sadly there is no iA Writer for Windows. So I have to fake it.
One of the reasons iA Writer is so good for authoring text is great readability. You are able to see your typos because every character is very distinct. But Nitti, the font that iA Writer uses, also make it very easy to read quickly. It's not as rough as something like Courier. I referred to this five your old post to first find the font, and then a free font that looks remarkably similar.

Was ich von Frau Brandlinger gelernt habe|
Wed, Jan 18th 2017 9:12a Volker Weber
Ich bin seit 2014 mit Frau Brandlinger unterwegs und muss mal von meinen vielen Begegnungen mit anderen Menschen und Hunden erzählen. Hunde fördern die Kommunikation. Man kommt mit wildfremden Menschen ins Gespräch und man erlebt viele komische Situationen.
Was Hundehalter wissen und andere Menschen nicht: Alle Hunde sind identisch "programmiert". Sie sprechen absolut die selbe Sprache. Leider verstehen viele Menschen diese Sprache nicht. Und das führt zu
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,
