No more upgrades for the BlackBerry PRIV

Volker Weber    

Alex Thurber, who is responsible for the mobile business at BlackBerry, has confirmed what I told you long ago: no upgrades from Android Marshmallow for the PRIV. This particular phone already received one upgrade from Android Lollipop. Alex evades questions about the DTEK phones, but I am pretty sure they will also remain on Marshmallow. BlackBerry is out of the phone business and their software customers who may have bought DTEKs, aren't really interested in upgrades. They want monthly security updates and that is what Thurber promises to provide.

The KEYone is a different story. That already ships with Nougat and will receive an upgrade to Oreo. Once it is there, it will be easier to provide updates and even more upgrades. And BlackBerry Mobile (TLC) has new devices in the pipeline. I supspect they will ship with Nougat and upgrade later.

Trust is built in drops and lost in buckets
Tue, Sep 26th 2017 7:10a   Volker Weber
There was a Sonos leak yesterday, and it bothered me. It bothered me a lot. Why did it bother me? The information was leaked by a person I would have trusted. A person who knows exactly what he is doing. Somebody who knows about NDAs, has signed many, and still goes ahead breaching one because he did not sign it himself. If you trust me with information that should not be published, I will not publish it. I never did, I never will. And that is why you never need me to sign an NDA.

Nach der Bundestagswahl müssen alle erst mal tief durchatmen. Vox Populi hat gesprochen und es wurde erwartungsgemäß Vox Rindvieh. Aber die IT-News lassen sich davon nicht aufhalten More >

Wer mag schon das zweitschönste Auto oder das zweitbeste Essen? Deshalb warten die Apple-Fans auf das iPhone X. Dabei liefert schon das iPhone 8 bemerkenswerte Ergebnisse, vor allem in der Kamera-Software. More >

Thinkpad 25 Anniversary Edition
Fri, Sep 22nd 2017 8:25p   Volker Weber
Winfuture has leaked images and specs of a 25 year anniversary edition Thinkpad. It looks to be based on the current T470 model. Look at all the ports! Fullsize Ethernet! I am a very early ThinkPad user. I actually have one that is already 24 years old. Will need to post some photos. It looks like this. More >

Apple Watch Series 3 GPS + LTE
Thu, Sep 21st 2017 5:38a   Volker Weber
Ich habe sehr viele widersprüchliche Reviews zur Apple Watch 3 gelesen. Dabei blieb mir genug Zeit, diese Informationen zu ordnen und ich will gerne weitergeben, was ich gelernt habe. Es gibt wie zuvor drei Gehäuse-Ausführungen: Alu, Stahl und Keramik. Die Alu-Watch gibt es mit und ohne LTE, die anderen beiden Modelle haben stets LTE. Wenn man die eingebaute eSIM nicht aktiviert, verhält sich eine LTE-Watch wie eine ohne diese Option.Es gibt von jeder LTE-f

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.
