And that's why Allo is the best messaging app available

Looks like Allo is around the corner

Google changed the icon today. On the rumored date. That probably means we'll have it on our devices by evening.

EuGH verdict is a disaster for blogs

Especially for own microblogs.
Live by the link, die by the link. And I'm not talking about Nintendo here.
It's an essential thing for blogs. The future is dark grey in Europe for new small media projects.

In the past I referred to old media and new media. Now I need to change my language. It's small media and big media.
The small ones can't afford to link the source or giving useful hyperlinks to other sites.

And so if you wonder, why our fellow European internet users don't link back to you, that's because they can't check hundreds of links and the links from your links and so on. You can read it about it here:  The EuGH Link Disaster - It might be worse than you think
Yupp, I have a bad feeling about this.

Europe... where businesses are your enemies and your law giving holiness at once.

Writing a little Python-script for calculating time dilation

Yes, I know, I can do that in Google Sheets on a single cell.
But you never know if it is around in the future when you need it :P

So just for fun I'm writing a simple Python script to calculate the time dilation and remind me everywhere that you don't need to travel faster than light (which is impossible) or even with the speed of light to reach destinations thousands of light years away theoretically.

Cafezinho do Brasil arrived

Another fine variation of coffee arrived today.
Nespresso Cafezinho do Brasil. A strong taste espresso.
But you can also try to Drink it as a Lungo. It fits perfect with brown sugar or just plain. Awesome with vanilla ice.

It's really great to see how Nespresso can surprise me over and over again just when you thought you knew all kinds of coffee.

A random selfie... bored waiting for the new tech stuff

Don't know what to do...
I'm waiting for Google Allo, the new Nexus phones and the Dash Buttons from Amazon.
At least the buttons should come today. Allo? Pretty please?

I'm so bored by technology these days. New stuff takes to long to appear. Most things from IFA will probably never make it to the mass markets because all the nay-sayers.
Yes I want the camera in my fridge :). I want that light bulbs connected with my WiFi and still have money left to pay the electricity bill.
Even Google gets slowed down by all the anti-tech people. New stuff seems to creep out many. So they artificially slow down rollouts while people that really want those features are left in the dust.
It's hard to live together with these tech lamers in society. Sorry. And I'm not even speaking about the tinfoil guys... *sigh*

Just ordered a bunch of Dash-Buttons from Amazon

Japp, I did it. I think this is really comfortable. Not for everything, but some things you just keep ordering and ordering... How neat is it to just press a button and next day it will be delivered. Great.

There are many more. Well if it works for me, I might order even more of those buttons. Nice!

The Pokémon Go craze killed my blogs :)

Jupp, so to say.
Since the craze started, I literally wrote almost nothing on my different blogs. But even more on Google+ and Twitter. And posted many videos on YouTube.
Interesting how a game can have so much impact.

That is not all positive, since I'm blogging as my main job. Whoops. Now the main activities shift towards videos. Which is not easy because I have not much experience in that field.

Wow, this Pokémon Go is really turning everything up 'n down.

Please...lower temperature

It's way too hot today. Over 30° C today. Sigh. I want to go to Norway or somewhere in the polar region 😓😥

I'm sweating while doing the netcasts today...

Damn I'm good

I beat Usaine Bolt's reaction time.

Yay, I knew that gaming would pay out someday. :)

You can try it, too at the New York Times' reaction time tester

Making the final preparations for the Go Cantina Cast

Yay... a new netcast will start today. And yupp it's about Pokemon Go.
But still a lot to do before the recording can start.  I still hope for an audio-file from Tatsuo, but I can't wait any longer after the everything is set up. Please +Tatsuo -san make it happen.

Stay tuned... I'll edit this post after the first episode is published. Way to go...

Anyway, here is the new Logo that will be now used for the community site on Google+, too.
