Why do enthusiasts hate on quartz watches?

And no, I don’t have an answer, I am honestly asking. But if you are not familiar, there are 3 ways these days to make a watch (more or less). Number one, a mechanical movement, powered by a spiral spring that is slowly unwound and making the balance wheel swing, providing you with a more […]

The thing about (mobile) browsers

I am not old enough to have been a participant in the first browser wars, when they ended 1998 I was about to meet my first computer, which was in 1999, and I couldn’t care less about who made my browser, or my OS for that matter. What was important was that the computer ran […]

One step too far

My first smartphone was an iPhone, the iPhone 4 to be exact. Why? Well back then I was a young man and my girlfriend at the time worked at the biggest mobile carrier in Austria: A1. She got me a good deal on one of these, or the be more precise, I didn’t pay a […]

Looking back, 2023-Edition

Have I done one of the looking back at the year posts yet? I don’t think so, but this year deserves one I guess, I can’t remember the last year so many things have changed, but I am getting ahead of myself, so let’s start at the beginning. There is no point in denying it, […]

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.

A way too long silence

As some might have noticed, my blog has been silent for a while now, this was due to a lot happening in my private life lately, which I am not going into detail here, but let’s just say most is sorted out by now and with this post more regular updates are planned and going […]

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 […]
