  • Apple's Tim Cook takes close seat to Donald Trump at tech summit

    Why does Tim Cook always make such a "grumpy grandma" face?

  • An iPhone switch story from a reluctant Android switcher

    Actually, Android is far from being customisable. I tried hard already, but couldn’t get an Android phone to do just what I want.
    the most basic things are simply not possible.
    I’m speaking of customising privacy settings per app, and moreover, Notification settings per app.
    I do want a tapable notification for most apps as well as lock screen notifications.
    But for certain apps, I want discrete notifications (sound and badge ok, Notification Center too...but no banners and nothing on the lock screen). Funnily, Apple is takin this even further with iOS 11 and per-app switch for enabling or disabling showing a notification’s contents.
    Where can Android do any of that?
    If not even notifications work, how can I even go on with that OS?

  • Microsoft accidentally bricks AMD PCs with Spectre patch

    While I acknowledge the fact that this can happen, as Microsoft has to support all sorts of hardware, it’s a sheer nightmare having to reinstall Windows, since that typically uninstalls all your installed applications, unlike macOS, where a reinstall over your existing macOS wouldn’t get you rid of anything!
    All those applications, their plugins, patches, activations, and settings - gone.
    That’s Windows, ladies and gentlemen!

  • New 'Close Your Rings' minisite encourages using Apple Watch Activity app

    It's a nicely made website.
    Pity there seems not to be a German version of it.
