The F(x)Tec Pro1-X

A different kind of product review This is the most brilliant phone I ever had, it has plenty of power, the keyboard in combination with its free-software operating system Ubuntu Touch, the ability to plug it into an external monitor and use it as a fully blown desktop make it one of a kind and […]

9 months on a Mac

If you followed this blog for a while, you might remember that back in December 2021 my, until then, trusty Thinkpad decided it was time to blow up its battery and I, for some reason, decided to get a MacBook Air as my new computer. This post will be about the ups and downs I […]

Thoughts about energy and sustainability

My recent blog post, that was basically me just venting my annoyance about tech that is designed to be e-waste soon, did spark a couple of interesting responses. 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 […]

Eating my own words

As some readers might have noticed, a while ago I tried living on a Mac instead of a Linux PC and at the end of the experiment decided to go back to what I was used to using and ditched the Mac in favour of my Ubuntu machine. But, about a month ago, while working […]

Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité

not sure about the last part….. As for most of us, my daily (work) life consists of using multiple devices and with the addition of CoVid-19 the homeoffice introduced a number more of them. So what are we dealing with here? I have a PC at work, that runs Windows10, I have a PC at […]

E-Mail is dead, long live E-Mail!

Prologue I am not 100% certain, but SMTP is, as far as I know, one of the oldest protocols on the internet, going way back to the 1980s. So E-Mail and SMTP are with us for about 40 years now, so it must be doing something right. At least for me it is still one […]
