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.

2007 A masterpiece of simplicity
2017 The world becomes more complex

The primary responsibility for Apple's design since more than 2 decades goes to …

Sir Jonathan Paul "Jony" Ive, KBE RDI (born 27 February 1967) is a British designer and the Senior Vice President of Design at Apple Inc. He joined Apple in 1992 and has the overall responsibility for Industrial Design. He also provides leadership and direction for Human Interface (HI) software teams across the company.

Text Replacement

It's such a great feature but
I hate this screen in iOS.

The text field is far too small to comfortably enter a bit more text than just a mail address or a text module like "Kind regards".

Smartphone Addiction

17 07 2017

iOS 11, 12, 13, …cannot solve this issue
China already has an estimated 300 internet addiction centres, according to a report on state broadcaster CCTV’s website. It also cited a survey showing there may be more than 24 million young Chinese addicted to the internet.

The city of Chongqing in China has reportedly set up the country’s first sidewalk for ‘mobile phone addicts’, with a lane specifically dedicated to those glued to their screens.

Apple is being sued by a couple whose five-year-old daughter was killed in a car crash. The accident occurred when an SUV crashed into the back of their car at speed. The driver, it is claimed, was using FaceTime.

Are you also a web junkie using a smartphone more than 6 hours a day, go to sleep with your device right beside you, wake up and your very first activity is to glance on the screen?

Well, then it’s time to look for professional help.

This misuse of technology has severe consequences, among which the most prominent symptoms are:

Increased Levels of Stress, Insomnia, Anxiety, Depression, Aggressiveness, Delinquency, Inability to stop the use despite knowing that you will be faced with negative consequences.

Instead of focusing on AR, VR and ML humans should focus more on their own CPU to avoid getting more and more stupid.

Artificial Intelligence?

I don’t wait for iOS 20. I already have an hOS that works quite fine because of many patches over the years. Regarding the important things of life iOS will always be light years behind.


Yeah, regarding my young grandchild.

Your iPhone is like you.Sometimes it’s in trouble and needs professional help. To be honest, it happens rarely and in 5 years of using my Apple devices it never happened.

If it just coughs …


If it is faced with circulatory problems …


If some internal organs are malfunctioning …


You’ll need a computer for this surgical procedure. If you don’t have a computer, well, you don’t have a computer but you can borrow one from a friend not living in the Post-PC-Era or go to an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider for help.

One last thing …

Don’t apply methods you learned from your grandmother e.g. leg compress, alcohol (I mean for sterilization), heavy sweater, or improved cooling. It’s likely that you’ll lose the warranty and Apple Care professionals will become crazy.

Thanks for 📖 .

It brings you back where you came from

There’s a small but extremely powerful ARROW on Windows 10 mobile devices.

Sadly it’s not available on devices running iOS. Apple should offer this feature as well. As far as I know it won’t be available in iOS 11.

Wherever you are, tapping on the arrow brings you back to the screen where you came from. No need to go back to the Multitasking View, wait for the app the refresh its data and choose the function you recently used.
And there’s more I’m still waiting for since 5 years: a clipboard with more than just one entry.

Hey Apple, what’s your take on Microsoft’s new Surface Pro?

25 05 2017

A mobile device with the power of a computer? You don’t have it. Have you ever asked yourself why iPad sales continuously decline? For normal people a big-sized smartphone does it all. There’s no need for a tablet which runs the same OS like the smartphone does.

Decades ago – and supported by lots of scientists of different academic disciplines today – Alan Kay already told us that people should learn the basics of programming. But with an iPad Pro you can’t do it.

The MacBook isn’t that mobile as Apple wants us to see it. And the iPad still lacks some essential features a computer is capable of, e.g. programming.

So the next step (since years) should be a real hybrid like Microsoft created it already in 2002 with the Tablet PC.

I was a proud owner of a Siemens T4010 Convertible running Windows Tablet PC Edition. And I tell you, it was a great experience at that time and it’s a great experience with my Surface Pro 4 today.

So again,
what’s your answer to the Surface Pro, making use of a fanless architecture, with a powerful Intel Corei5, running a full version of Windows 10, ready to install millions of powerful applications?

Just create a mPad running macOS with the option to also run iOS apps and Windows 10 via Bootcamp.

Forget your Macbooks and give us an ocean-boiling new Mac Pro instead.

It’s just my very personal opinion. Apple is the most successful company in the world led by excellent staff so they’ll have their good reasons not to do so. Sadly.

Thanks for 💦ing by.
