Violations on users PIM

January 19th, 2014 No comments

While Apple Computers decided to rape users rights once more, ceasing the capability to synchronise PIM (personal information management) data locally with OS X Mavericks 10.9 (argueing they should store their data in their iCloud. – Bwahahahaha!1!!) there are too many PIM solutions for GNU/Linux users, whereas none of them are really feasible for users who want to switch to Free Software.

While many complain that there are too few GNU/Linux Desktop users and Linus Torvalds claims this to be his “personal failure” the GNU/Linux community fails to offer a seamless integration of GUI (graphical user interface) PIM into their OS. (Which is really sad, as fiddling around with SoGo-connector, lightning etc. does not offer a sustainable solution…)

So here is my solution:
Get DAViCal, install it on your server and get mutt, pycarddav and khal for your desktop(s), get a Jolla and you will have a beautiful and seamless PIM solution using the “good olde command line”.

DuckDuckGoPhantastic!
When searching for any search word or phrase in Duckduckgo, using the additional term “mirror”, the search phrase will be displayed upside down.

Example: “mirror hello world” will display the output “plɹoʍ ollǝɥ”.

I further think that this is a pretty neat way to send sensitive information (e.g. passwords) to people who are not using encryption technologies… 8-)

Trademark vs. patent

November 8th, 2013 1 comment

heart-gestureTonight in a discussion with a friend about the absurdity of patents, I came across the story that Gareth Bale, – a (seemingly) famous football player who recently was acquired by Real Madrid, – did trademark the “heart sign”, whereas I was wondering if this is in any contradiction to the recent patent, which Google got for the “heart shape”!??

The question remains: How many ways of perversion can trademarking and patenting still offer?

“Va Pensiero” – Riccardo Muti

October 23rd, 2013 No comments

Ma in questa sera mentre il choro cantava “Oh, mia patria si bella e perduta” ho pensato que se noi uccidiamo la cultura sul qui e fondata la storia dell’Italia, veramente sara la nostra patria bella e perduta!

Riccardo Muti

Translation:
But this evening during the choir was singing “Oh fatherland, so beautiful and lost” I was thinking that if we murder the culture which forms the basis of the italian history, it truly would be our beautiful and lost fatherland!

Source ex opera Nabucco by Giuseppe Verdi.

Heart-Shaped Patent

October 17th, 2013 1 comment

Google gets patent for ‘heart’ shaped gesture, and I wonder if they also got the patent for The finger gesture since we all know, not everything that we’re not marking as ‘liked’ (as intendet by the like gesture) we also don’t like. In this world of friendface’s and google’s likes, I really getting the urge to stand against, to hate and be disgusted about stuff.

Google gesture patent would let Glass wearers 'heart' objects

“Arbeitsfrei”

October 14th, 2013 No comments

Arbeitsfrei UmschlagHeute erschien das Buch “Arbeitsfrei” von Frank Rieger und Constanze Kurz

Was kommt nach den Maschinen?

Wie werden wir morgen arbeiten? Diese Frage bewegt immer mehr Menschen, und doch wissen wir viel zu wenig darüber, wie die Arbeitswelt heute und in Zukunft tatsächlich aussieht. Das archaischste und ursprünglichste aller Lebensmittel, unser Brot, kann als Paradebeispiel für Automatisierung gelten. Hier zeigen sich viele Mechanismen und Technologiewellen, die in anderen Branchen erst noch kommen werden. Von der industriellen Landwirtschaft über die Produktion der Landmaschinen, die Backfabriken bis zur durchdigitalisierten Lieferlogistik – Menschen spielen dabei eine immer untergeordnetere Rolle. Wenn die Maschinerie läuft und den Takt vorgibt, sind sie nur noch Handlanger in Niedriglohnberufen.

Welche Umbrüche und Verwerfungen kommen auf uns zu? Sind wir Menschen zwangsläufig die Verlierer in der Maschinenwelt, oder haben wir die Chance, neue, positive Lebensbedingungen zu gestalten?

… bestellen, lesen!
