- The Travelwide System
- Four great illustrators
- Adding DuckDuckGo as a search service in Sleipnir
- The difference between a pocket watch and a smartphone
- My trick to deal with the redesigned Shift key in iOS 7.1
- Power button behaviour
- Mail Shield
- The excessive reliance on technological crutches
I don’t think this ‘save it somewhere and forget about it’ approach is being that beneficial to our minds.
- The need for new voices
We need more diverse debate. It’s infuriating that in the tech sphere most of the debate gravitates around a bunch of sites and pundits.
- Geek. Not chic.
If your wearable device is best defined by this tag line, you’re doing it wrong.
Simply put, Facebook’s $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp has left me more disgusted than ever.
- Mavericks and display management — a headache
Since upgrading to Mavericks the overall display management has been erratic and unreliable for me.
- 8 ridiculous gigabytes
I believe that today, having 8GB of storage on an iPhone is borderline useless.
- iOS 7.1 and the iPhone 4 performance
Yes, there are performance improvements. No, the iPhone 4 was not “unusable” before.
- Google detoxing: DuckDuckGo as main search engine
Moving away from Google one step at a time, I’ve started by relying on another engine for my Web searches.
- Pipe tobacco packaging — Part 1
Over time I’ve tried a lot of different tobaccos, blends and brands. I’ve kept many of the pouches and cans because some of them feature a really nice package design.
- The struggle to overcome what appears as ineffectiveness
The time has come for some ranting. I have debated whether to write and post these thoughts or keep them to myself, but I feel that bottling them up is just making things worse.
- Now you can read my book on Macs, too
Thanks to the new iBooks app in OS X Mavericks, now you can read Minigrooves on your Mac.
- Minigrooves Vol. 1 - The ebook
The first volume of short stories of my Minigrooves project is finally available on the iBookstore.
- The Mac can’t do it all — really?
This is the kind of article about Apple that still manages to get on my nerves.
- Lukas Mathis on the iPad for content creation
Mathis switches from an iPad to a Microsoft Surface and offers a comprehensive account of his experience. About the iPad as a device for content creation, however, I have a slightly different perspective.
- Drop support, but leave old versions around
Brent Simmons suggests that developers drop support for older OS releases as a way to optimise resources and keep making quality apps. I have another suggestion to add.

Questa ‘blogosfera tecnologica’, così dolce, così perversa.
- Casual Podcast #3 — Addenda
