Cloudy iCloud?

20 08 2017

It’s an essential part of Apple’s ecosystem. Even if syncing between devices isn’t what you need because you own just one device iCloud does a lot of things for you automatically. 5 GB is free, if you want more it’s quite affordable. 50GB for €0.99 is definitely a good deal compared with other providers e.g. the well-known Dropbox, Google Drive, or Box cloud.

You’ve problems with understanding what’s going on above your head?

Hey Apple!

Electronically signed documents are legally invalid in most countries of the world.

And there is even more.

  • Sending a document as an attachment to an unencrypted mail is like an invitation for bad boys to use the signature done with the  Pencil.
  • Using it for business purposes would also require to keep it accessible over 5 to 10 years. But where’s your document management and digital archiving support?

No, no.

It’s not that easy you want us to see this feature.

Thanks for dropping by.

Well done, Mr. Cook.

As a German I know a lot about that horrible time in Germany. This mindset is unacceptable and people all over the world – including the POTUS and his Breitbart journalist Bannon – should have learned to stand up if something happens like this.

There is no place other than the jail for people who still hate others for what reason soever.

Dr. Martin Luther King once said

$1,000 for the 8?

17 08 2017

Barclays says

Nobody wants to buy a $1,000 iPhone.

But if I go to the German Apple Store the company offers the 7 Plus with 128GB, Black for €1,009. That converts to about $1,191 (1€ = 1.18$) and it's selling fine.

Let's see.
We'll know it in January 2018 when Apple files its quarterly report (Oct-Dec) to the SEC.

To avoid any Copyright infringement I made the 8 myself in Apple's iWork app Keynote just with a picture and black frames.

Environment or ROI

Dumping prices kill both

Both should be possible with the right business philosophy. But it's not to be had for nothing.

"Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth… these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security and women's empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all."

(Ban Ki-moon)

Some details about the environmental initiatives of two leading tech companies, Apple and Microsoft.

You miss Samsung and Foxxconn?
Me too. Their presence is quite embryonic.

Discover how to take stunning photos with your iPhone on an excellent website mentioned below.

But be careful when you take photos of small dragons like the Tokay Gecko. I caught him after he tried to break into our bedroom. He’s able to bite off a piece of your finger.

Apples and Batteries

10 08 2017

Watch out! Your FP-Sensor doesn't like it.

The battery of the iPhone 5S has an electric charge of 1510 mAh (1.51 Coulomb) and works on 3.8 volts. So the electrical energy stored in the battery is

1.51 A x 3,600 sec x 3.8 V = 20,656.8 J

that means approximately 21 kJ (kilo Joule).

One Joule in everyday life approximately represents the energy required to lift a small apple (with a mass of 100g) vertically through one meter or the kinetic energy released when that same apple falls one meter to the ground.

So your fully charged iPhone approximately offers the energy released when 21,000 apples fall one meter to the ground.

If you don't like s falling to the ground take chocolate bars.

Hey, for your kids …

The 7 has a 1,960 mAh battery.
How many apples?

Bon appétit!
