Word Selfies

The risk to be seen as a dumbass.



Google+, Twitter, Facebook, and others changed our lives and the way we communicate with each other. 

  
Sad to say that this often goes along with untruths, aggressiveness, ignorance, insolence, and other mental deficits.
A phone or a tablet might not seem to be something worth fighting over, but what it stands for most definitely is.

A fanboy immediately turns into a hostage. Hostages have no choice but to buy certain products.


They are far less likely to care if one device is better than another. It’s the choosing one thing over another which leads to narratives about why you did it. If you have to rationalize why you bought a luxury item, you will probably find ways to see how it fits in with your self-image.
To combat postdecisional dissonance, the feeling you have committed to one option when the other option may have been better, you make yourself feel justified in what you selected to lower the anxiety brought on by questioning yourself.

All of this forms a giant neurological cluster of associations, emotions, details of self-image and biases around the things you own.

This is why all over the Internet there are people in word fights over video games and sports teams, cell phones and TV shows. The Internet provides a fertile breeding ground for this sort of behavior to flourish.

The imagination …

You prefer the things you own over the things you don’t because you made rational choices when you bought them.

The reality …

You prefer the things you own because you rationalize your past choices to protect your sense of self.

Thanks for paying attention.





Fly WebDAV Airlines

20 10 2015

Let your data fly with WebDAV Airlines from your iOS device to a cloud storage of your choice.

1 Tap on ‘Send a copy’ and select a document and the file format.

2 Choose ‘WebDAV’.

3 Sign in.

4 Choose a folder to save the document.

Tap on ‘+’ and select ‘Copy from WebDAV’ to fetch a document from your cloud provider.
WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is a method that allows you to manage files stored on remote servers. By linking to a WebDAV location from your iWork app, you can easily copy documents to and from a remote server or web service.

WebDAV is

a communications protocol is a system of digital message formats and rules for exchanging those messages in or between computing systems and in telecommunications. A protocol may have a formal description. Protocols may include signaling, authentication and error detection and correction capabilities.

A protocol definition defines the syntax, semantics, and synchronization of communication. Communications protocols have to be agreed upon by the parties involved.

Example

The most popular protocol is our language with some fine distinctions:
It’s not digital and non-standardized. Nevertheless I hope you will understand this article.

  
Notes …

1 Non-iCloud storages do not support synchronization across your devices automatically.

2 It’s always a good idea to save relevant documents in more than one place. So use iCloud and an other cloud for backups.

3 iWork for iOS supports WebDAV as well as Box, OneDrive, Google Drive, and Dropbox.

4 If you work with both suites, Apple iWork and Microsoft Office, it’s recommended to use Microsoft OneDrive or Dropbox. If you need WebDAV access for other reasons you should know that OneDrive and Dropbox don’t support WebDAV. 

It’s recommended to install a powerful file manager like FileBrowser to manage your files (copy, move, delete, rename, etc).

Happy landing.

Pyongyang Time

4 10 2015

or
There is an update for Kim’s iThings.


On August 15, 2015, North Korea switched to a new time zone, turning its clocks back by 30 minutes to mark its liberation from the Japanese at the end of WW2. Bells rang out in the capital Pyongyang at midnight as the new time zone came into effect. Unfortunately Kim did not inform Tim about this innovative move so iOS devices showed the wrong Pyongyang Time.

  

The world of bliss returned because special forces now installed iOS 9 on Kim’s iThings.

What can North Korea learn from this history-charged issue?

After upgrading the time zone of their iThings people in power should upgrade their conception of the world as well.

Regarding iOS 9 let’s say it with slightly modified words of Neil Armstrong …

That’s one small step for a man developer, one giant leap for mankind Kim Yong Un.

A big THANKS to the Cupertino guys.
