I decided to give Twitter another chance

On 14 September 2009 at 17:06 I joined Twitter to register my name there. It’s good to have some online establishment I think. I never intended to use and found the information overwhelming and chaotic and this hasn’t gotten better over the years. It’s a mess. I am following 209 people and am followed by 86 (most people I know from work). Read More

Google’s Gmail app shows inline ads…

This morning I was checking my email in the official Gmail app (to be honest, I accidentally hit it and decided to organize a bit) and I noticed an unknown message that looked slightly different: an ad. I knew Google was showing ads in their Gmail web app (technically it’s a website, but people insist on using the term “web app”, because it can do quite a lot more than an old fashion website) and I’m fine with that. Showing an ad in a mobile app is fine too, but I don’t like how they put it there. It looks like an email message apart from the timestamp that is replaced with an “i” for information about the ads and the lack of a select box. Read More

The difficulty of using your car’s turn signal

Here’s something that bugs me a lot when driving a car: other drivers. Especially the ones driving either way too big or way too expensive cars with all their flashy chrome and xenon lights. First off, I know you probably paid a shitload of money for that car, because you probably don’t want to leave Read More
