How Panos and Ralf made me love Windows 10
Wed, Nov 22nd 2017 9:24p   Volker Weber
Two years ago I was a Mac user. I had been a Windows user from version 1 but I had converted to Macs when they were still running on Motorola chips. But then something happened: I watched Panos Panay present the Surface 3. This was finally a machine worth a look. I liked it a lot as a travel companion. It was light, it had the right ports: microUSB for charging, USB A for the occasional thumbdrive, microSD for storage, but it wasn't powerful enough to challenge my MacBook Pro. Then two years

Huawei leaves a good impression
Wed, Nov 22nd 2017 8:42p   Volker Weber
I always like to make fun of Leica fans who shoot their Leica. How do you do that, if your favorite camera is in the picture? The answer is simple: you use your second Leica camera. I shoot most of my photos with my iPhone. I do have serious cameras from Fujifilm (and an old Nikon), but the iPhone has excellent results. No need to fetch the heavier glass and deal with a complicated workflow. But what if the iPhone itself is in the picture? Simple: I use a Huawei smartphone. I have used the P1

In response to issues identified by external researchers, Intel has performed an in-depth comprehensive security review of its Intel Management Engine (ME), Intel Trusted Execution Engine (TXE), and Intel Server Platform Services (SPS) with the objective of enhancing firmware resilience. As a result, Intel has identified several security vulnerabilities that could potentially place impacted platforms at risk. Systems using ME Firmware versions 11.0/11.5/11.6/11.7/11.10/11.20, SPS Firmware versi

Sonos before and after

been a huge Sonos fan for years, so I’m mystified how they managed to completely fubar the whole system w/ awful recent UI & system updates— briankrebs (@briankrebs) November 20, 2017 Brian Krebs has indeed been a huge Sonos fan. As have I. Then something changed. And I can smell it. This is former CEO and Sonos founder John MacFarlane commenting on Apple's decision not to ship the HomePod before it is ready. These calls are why I respect Apple so much. They are what sepa

BlackBerry Motion :: Don't worry about the battery. Ever.
Sun, Nov 19th 2017 8:21a   Volker Weber
I got the BlackBerry Motion on Tuesday and charged it overnight. Took it off the charger on Wednesday morning and then never recharged it until this morning. Four days. Even more impressive: within one hour on the charger it was back at 75%. That means you can use it all day and then recharge it in maybe half an hour. And that is the charger that came in the box. No additional purchase necessary. Even if you forget to recharge it, the battery should always last a second day. That is just prac

Control Spotify via Alexa on Sonos
Sat, Nov 18th 2017 9:09p   Volker Weber
Na also: @Spotify mit #Alexa auf @Sonos. Einfach als Standard in der Alexa-App einstellen. pic.twitter.com/PfAMeqhXfZ— Volker Weber (@vowe) November 18, 2017 Sonos has started beta support for Spotify and you don't have to do anything to make it work. I'd advise to set Spotify as your default music service in the Alexa app, but you can also tell Alexa to play from Spotify. If you have a Sonos One, you are all set. It just works. If you have an Echo speaker, you have to dir

Folgende Aufgabenstellung: Haus hat jede Menge Philips Hue. Jetzt gilt es, dumme Schalter von Gira (E2 55) für Deckenauslässe zu integrieren. Im Prinzip also: Schalter raus, neuen UP-Einsatz rein, Schalter darauf montieren. Busch-Jäger hat das, Gira nicht. Hue redet Zigbee.
