Not again: Water from the ceiling

5th time now. Water dripping from the ceiling, through the lamp, and flowing down from the walls. *sigh*

A water pipe broken ... Luckily this time it's in the bathroom and not in my computer room or living room.
At least for me it's business as usual here. Good. Okay besides I have a wet bathroom O.o

Are you ready for Google I/O 2015? [Live Video]

Watch it live... 16:00 UTC / 18:00 CEST / 9AM PDT (after all this time, not even a common time scale on the net) 

I'm pretty sure it will be awesome to here about Android M, Google+ changes and what to be expected in the near future.

Playing GTA V after upset about BF4 Update

I couldn't believe what crap Dice did do to Battlefield 4 again. Completely ruined game experience.
Frustrated I'm playing GTA V and realizing that when I whine about those glitches, it isn't even near that horrible bugs on BF4

It's now forbidden for merchants to throw away food

Tour de EiffelThis is an awesome move from the french government.
Supermarkets and other merchants are not allowed to throw away unsold food.
In order to stop the wasting, they now need to donate the food to charities.

It should be made Europe-wide. It's ridiculous how many food are thrown away every day, you won't believe it until you saw the mountains of groceries.
However, it's questionable if this keeps the french from throwing away food when eating. I could see it in many restaurants. They gave back plates half full of food, that was expensive and, as they said, very good. Don't ask me why. If this is a custom, it's a very bad one.

Eckes-Granini juices are vegan, too

Another big juice company manufacturing their products vegan.
This include the recently introduced soft-drinks line "Limo". The Website for Granini states "vegan" on every product, while the site for the sub-brand "Hohes C" states "We do not use gelatin or other ingredients from animal sources". 
This is great news. You now can drink some delicious stuff safely.

If you wondering, why it's a big deal if juices are vegan: Many companies use pork or beef gelatin from bones and pig bristles to filter juices. You think that is disgusting? Me, too.

Please note: This is a statement from the company on 2015-05-20. Please check back if you read this later. Companies can change their ingredients any time. Sometimes for the good, sometimes for the bad.

Animated movie posters = distraction

These are the things that are pure distraction, because they are so awesome.
Animated movie posters... And again I'm stopping my research for the netcasts today. I hope I'm not seeing more of such great stuff today, or the listeners have to wait until midnight :D

Cute, isn't it?

Republica 2015: Hipster-meeting or hope for the internet?

It's strange. When German media is covering the Republica 2015, they prefer scenes with devices from a particular manufacturer in it. 
Is this the real situation, or distorted?
I'm not quite sure about it. The Republica is so far away from the real problems and the somewhat 90% of bloggers and net users, it wouldn't surprise me if the usage of devices didn't reflect the market shares at all.
If "digital natives" and "netizens" mean to be bound on one manufacturer that rule with iron fist, I'm glad that these names are worth nothing.
Oh really? Nope, this is not representing me...
