“A Day in the Life of Your Data”

Published on in 🔗 Links

Honestly, I don’t quite believe Apple is that altruistic and actually cares about the privacy of their customers and users, rather I think it’s driven by a desire for even more profits. Apple has jumped on the privacy bandwagon because it’s financially rewarding.

Raspberry Pi 400

Published on in 🔗 Links

The Raspberry Pi Foundation launched a new product: the Raspberry Pi 400. It’s basically a keyboard with a modified Raspberry Pi 4 board included. It kind of reminds me of the Commodore 64. I’m from after this era of “home computers”, but in the basement there’s still one from my father. Maybe I should take a closer look at it, it’s certainly exciting to see a computer from a time when the subject of computers was just coming up and people would have thought you were crazy if they knew what technical specifications smartphones have today.

Another year has passed

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Another year has passed. Today I went to the cemetery after work and put a flower arrangement on the grave and lit a new candle. I wonder what you can think when you look down from heaven on the world and watch the current events from outside. But I am also a little bit relieved that the whole fate does not take place at this time, because then it would probably not have been possible to visit him in the hospital so often and everything would probably be even more painful.
