Tabelts and smartphones: if it's not Apple, it has fallen off the map

I completely agree with Marques on this one. Tablets did not become the category that we envisioned and neither have smartwatches. It's either an iPad or an Apple Watch, or it has fallen off the map. That does not mean there aren't any good ones. But they don't matter. Watch the video from 5:12.

watchOS 4 ist einfach besser
Wed, Sep 20th 2017 1:10p   Volker Weber
Eine bessere Auswertung der Herzfrequenzmessung oder ein schnellerer Zugriff auf die Musiksteuerung, hier Spotify mit Sonos, watchOS 4 ist an vielen Stellen verbessert, ohne dass auch die ersten Apple Watch ausgebremst werden. So entwickelt man ein Produkt sauber weiter. Apple beweist bei der Watch eine ruhige Hand.

iOS 11 uses new container formats for photos and videos. For the time being I prefer the old more ubiquitous formats, although they are larger. Set in Settngs/Camera/Formats.

Samsung finally starts addressing their Clippy-problem
Mon, Sep 18th 2017 12:48p   Volker Weber
Bixby is Samsung's Clippy. An annoying assistant nobody really wants, besides Samsung of course. If you bought a recent Galaxy S8 or Note 8, it comes with an extra button that summons Bixby. It was the single most annoying feature when I tested the Galaxy S8. You can finally disable the single press on this button. Holding the button will still open Bixby Voice. Imagine you could use this button for something useful.

I used to say that before you marry a girl, throw her in the pool. Only if she comes out laughing trying to throw you in, you found the right one. I no longer say that, because everybody is carrying a smart phone, all of the time. Chances are, you are going to not only ruin a perfectly good phone. Do you think this will go on forever? I find myself leaving the phone behind more often. But when I do that, I am completely off the grid. The Apple Watch has given me an opportunity to catch import

And what about the iPhone 8 Plus?
Sat, Sep 16th 2017 7:40p   Volker Weber
I am an iPhone Plus user. I like the large display and the dual camera. I can tolerate the huge size, since it also has a larger battery than the smaller model. I find the regular iPhone easier to handle, but it has neither of these features. If you have an iPhone 6S Plus or a 7 Plus, there is no immediate need to upgrade to an 8 Plus, but there are some interesting differences to look at. The size is almost identical, the buttons are in the same place, the existing cases should work. Almost

Second monthly update for Moto Z2 Play
Sat, Sep 16th 2017 7:12a   Volker Weber
I am seeing a pattern. OK, its August update in September, and July update in August, but Moto is on a monthly and not a quarterly update cycle. Much better than Huawei for instance.

vowe.net outage :: This was a big one
Fri, Sep 15th 2017 7:44p   Volker Weber
A bit of hirstory. The site used to run in shared hosting at 1&1. When that broke, Stefan let me host on his server. The site got faster, much faster actually, and he added SSL via LetsEnrcypt. Once in a while the site crashes. When that happens, Stefan has to restart it. If it happens at night or while he is working, it may take a few hours, but then it's coming back. I like to phrase it as "vowe.net is taking a bath and will come back squeaky clean". Well, not this time. The se
