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.

Microsoft macht gerade viel richtig
Mon, May 29th 2017 9:00p   Volker Weber
In der Ära Ballmer haben sich viele Leute angewöhnt, alles, was Microsoft unternahm, schlecht zu finden. Seit Nadella das Unternehmen führt, läuft es wieder rund. Das kann man an vielen Stellen sehen, am deutlichsten aber an der Kursentwicklung. Ich denke, da ist noch mehr Potential.

I was overly enthusiastic about Sonos :: My mistake
Mon, May 29th 2017 6:41a   Volker Weber
Last week I was overly enthusiastic about the prospect of bringing new life into my special relationship with Sonos. I should not have posted that. It's a different company now. In other news: a Playbar that only displays a solid white light when turned on. Does not respond to factory reset, does not appear in the controller. Who has seen that?

Huawei P9 :: An update
Sun, May 28th 2017 4:24p   Volker Weber
There is a Chinese curse that says 'may you live in interesting times', or so I have been told. I would not know since I don't speak the language. The P9 is the exact opposite. It's boring, in a good way. The matte black one which I have is completely non-descriptive. No branding on the front, a very subdued Huawei logo on the back and a LEICA branding in the corner. Safe for that logo, nobody would know what you are using. It might as well be some entry level phone. Isn't that insanely

IBM's Open Collaboration Client Solution :: The future that never was
Sun, May 28th 2017 3:51p   Volker Weber
When IBM talks aboout the future of the workplace, I always like to look at the future that's already behind us. From Lotusphere 2008: IBM's Open Collaboration Client Solution is a set of software products designed to help customers in all industries increase collaboration among employees, improve their productivity, and lower the total cost of information technology ownership. It is personal computing software that is based on open standards, providing businesses with a cost-effective and

Surface Pro 4 vs new Surface Pro
Sun, May 28th 2017 3:31p   Volker Weber
Did you just buy a Surface Pro 4 and feel left behind after the announcement for the new Surface Pro? Or are you still looking forward to your first Surface Pro? I want to give you a few reasons to consider the old model. What you are looking for is the Core i5 with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. That is the sweet spot for most people. That's 1449 €. Surface Pro does not come with a pen, which costs an extra 110 €. Then you need a keyboard. 180 € for the Sign

BlackBerry KEYone :: A short update
Sat, May 27th 2017 7:57a   Volker Weber
KEYone continues to be my go-to Android phone, against strong competition. The simple reason is convenience. It's so easy to pick up from flat surface with one hand, it does not seem to need a case, and I am never confused which side is up. It does have one design flaw, that it shares with the DTEKs and the PRIV: the on button is on the wrong side. I often press the convenience key on the right side. Since it also turns on with the fingerprint reader, it's not really an issue though. BlackB

Seit Ginni Rometty Chefin bei IBM, sinken die Umsätze. Das muss nicht ursächlich sein, Aber um einmal Friedrich den Großen zu zitieren: "Er hat keine Fortune; ich kann Offiziers ohne Fortune nicht gebrauchen." Auf sinkende Umsätze reagiert Rometty mit Entlassungen. Kosten sparen, damit wenigstens der Gewinn stimmt. Dummerweise führt das wieder zu sinkenden Umsätzen. Entlässt man Verkäufer, gibt es weniger Abschlü

Type A or Type C

If had to make a choice, which port would you want on your compute?— Volker Weber (@vowe) May 24, 2017 This was a bit of a trick question. You can view it as choice between the past and the future. You can also view it as a question about convenience. I have literally hundreds of things that require a USB Type A connector and I have only three things that have a USB Type C connector. And they all came with a Type A to C cable. The question became interesting when Microsoft

This wasn't streamed live, but you can now revisit Panos Panay introducing the new Surface Pro. He is such a great presenter.
