  • iPhone 8 Plus

    September 15, 2017

    When Apple first announced this year’s new phones, I immediately wanted to go for the iPhone X. I was instantly sold on the idea of having an almost bezel-free OLED display, combined with the latest technology and one of the best chipsets on the market. And wireless charging? Please…

  • Apple MacBook Refresh 2017

    Summary and comparison of all new models and options. I am a bit disappointed by Apple. Now everything is on Kay Lake, the ultra-portable MacBook now supports up to 16 GB of RAM.

    January 2, 2016

    After the fuck-up fairy visited the Apple Notes team, I found myself without a usable notes application. Why they were so braindead to choose such an abominably small default font, and didn’t include a preference to set font size application-wide is incomprehensible to me. But that is a rant…

  • Apple verliert mich

    January 2, 2014

    Als ich Hendriks Tweet las, dachte ich mir schon das da noch mehr kommen würde. Ich wurde nicht enttäuscht, kurze Zeit später hat er einen Blogpost nachgeschoben. Was er dort schreibt deckt sich leider in grossen Teilen mit meinen Eindrücken und Erfahrungen in der letzten Zeit. Zum Glück nicht vollständig,…

  • Windows 8 on a MacBook Pro Mid 2009

    July 12, 2013

    Unfortunately I need to work with Windows from time to time. I am depending on some tools that are only available for that OS and a Virtual Machine is not always handy. So when Microsoft made the Windows 8 Pro upgrade offer back in January, I decided to finally upgrade…
