The “Far out” Apple Event

I don’t usually care much about these Apple events, but the “Far Out” event of September 7th, 2022 is one I did actually watch after it was held and I saw the new devices. A couple of years back, Apple called themselves courages for removing the headphone jack from their phones, so they could sell […]

Why I don’t miss mainstream social media

There are so many social media platforms out there, facebook, twitter, whatsapp, instagram, tiktok, and youtube for example. It’s kind of hard to remember them all. Did I miss one? Plenty actually, but more on that later. My main experience with most of these wasn’t something I’d care to repeat. And that is not the […]

Staying on top of things

Today will be a bit of a dry subject, it will be about the way I manage things for myself, but hey, maybe you, dear reader, find something in there that will help make your life a bit easier as well. First up, I have tried a lot of tools to stay on top of […]

The F(x)Tec Pro1-X

So I figured I might not be the only one interested in living a bit more sustainable. Also recent events and the possibility of Austria and Europe […]

Unlock your stupid bootloader

Dear tech companies, please stop locking the bootloader of your devices. The second I hand you money and get the device in return it stops being yours and starts being mine. What I choose to do with it is up to me, nobody else. What OS I run on it is up to me. What […]

My highest summit

For some time now I wanted to extend the scope of my blog beyond technology and IT. Both are big parts of my life, but they aren’t my only interest. One of my main non tech hobbies is hiking and climbing which is the first topic of this little excursion away from computers. And what […]

3 Days (more or less) with the PineTime

The thing about knowledge

Knowledge is a tricky thing for human beings. We gather it over the course of our lives and in multiple ways. Some is in our DNA, instincts like eating, breathing, moving away from stuff that frightens us. Some is learned, some from others, some from experience and some is created by our selves.
