Hard Work

2 05 2018

It’s hard work not only for me (to update our driveway) but also for my iPhone 6s Plus running in a moist environment with temperatures above 35C (95F).

I never got the warning

“iPhone needs to cool down before you can use it”

the sensors forward to iOS if an iPhone feels bad.

It’s why I remove the Apple Silicon Case if it’s getting hotter and hotter at noontime. It wouldn’t be that big deal if the device shuts down but you would have a severe problem if the Li-Ion battery gets too hot. So watch out when making holidays in hot countries.

Thanks for visiting iNotes4You.





Right from the orbit

Since two months my new residence is Thailand. So here is Thailand’s capital Bangkok as seen from the ISS.


But wait, it wasn’t me taking the photo with an iPhone 7 Plus. I neither own a 7 Plus nor have I ever been more than 30,000 ft above the surface of our planet. The image credit goes to ESA, the European Space Agency.

Thanks for dropping by.





A really hot workplace

25 10 2016

This is my workplace in Khon Kaen, Thailand.

A Microsoft Surface Pro4, a WD Elements 1TB hard disc, an iPhone 6S Plus, a Mophie Powerstation for blackouts, and the most important device, a Hatari fan supporting the Surface Pro4 which alone isn’t able to carry away the thermal output.

Like every technical product the Pro4 has its pros and cons. The energy management isn’t what I would expect from a high-priced device. Optimization (like Apple did it with its macOS on a Macbook Air) isn’t Microsoft’s strength.

Sadly there is another annoying lack. Neither the Type cover nor the onscreen keyboard sports a BREAK key although it’s needed when debugging code. Shame on Microsoft.

Btw, the iPhone even works up to 40º Celsius without the notification “iPhone needs to cool down before you can use it”.

You might ask “Why don’t you install an air conditioning?”.

Well I have an AC but I don’t use it because the solar panels aren’t delivered yet. I’m quite sure that the Chinese Future Green Technology Co delivers the panels before Microsoft updates its Windows 10 energy management.

Thanks for reading.
