Kindle’s dictionaries, where do they come from?

If you have a Kindle, you must have used the dictionaries at one point. It’s when you select a word (by either moving the cursor to it or simple holding your finger on it for a second) and the device shows you the meaning from a dictionary in the book’s language. Where do these definitions come from and why do they work for all languages? Read More

Can’t disconnect Facebook from Spotify, you’ll lose your premium account

This Saturday my sister asked me how she could disconnect her Facebook data from Spotify and continue using Spotify with her email address and password. She used them to login in rather than her Facebook account data. It all worked until we disallowed Spotify to get access to her Facebook account. Read More

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.
