Gravis Germany Discount Project for Banking January 16, 2012

Next to the usual Apple EPP the German “Authorized Reseller / Authorized Service Provider” Gravis has come forward to announce a corporate discount program.

In comparison with the roughly 9% of Apple’s EPP the 8% that Gravis is offering sounds rather strange. However they usually carry a large selection of in-store accessories for Apple products and there you may get a good deal using this discount program.

Attached you can find all the details in their German PDF sheet.

Live from Moscow – with more geeky news April 24, 2009

Posted by Steven in Innovation, Internal, The-Web.

First of all… I am writing these lines from Moscow. Undoubtfully an amazing city. I had such great experiences here so it is almost impossible to write about all of that now.

So I just decided not to write about Moscow specifically now. I am waiting for our great pictures anyway. So I am writing more geeky news which are kind-of important to me.

So Gmail: Everybody loves Google’s e-mail service. And I also think it is a great tool to use. Maybe Apple’s Mobile Me service may eventually become more important for me. But for now I am a Gmail user. As such I wondered if you can create aliases to fight of some automatically generated mail that you may need sometimes but can ignore most of the times.

And: Yes you can. This excellent post on the official Gmail Blog explains that you can add ‘dots’ and plus signs in your mail address and you basically have your alias.

The plus for example is useful to add random words to your address. You can easily use the newly created address in filters and tell those mailing lists addresses like:

Your real name: gmailuser@gmail.com
or
Your name for electronic mail that you don’t want to read always: gmailuser+lists@gmail.com

I think that is a very nice feature for getting your mail sorted automatically.

Really random quotes and ideas.

“I’m violently happy”

“People are like seasons”

„Un peu d’air sur terre“

“You say you like me with that empty looking face,
that kind of emptyness that makes me leave this place.”

“Performing the Great Escape”

Remember, remember, the fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason, and plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot.”

“Fill the void”

“Conquer the divide”

“Balance the scale”

“equal the playingfield”

MacBook Pro Firmware Topic October 18, 2008

Posted by Steven in gadgets, Internal.
add a comment

For the first Macintosh computer in my life was a

MacBook Pro 15 inch (Late 2008) model

Although the device is loved very much – it did cause a couple of issues in the beginning. And I must say I am a bit disappointed of the build quality of modern Mac computers. My issues were: graphics hang-ups and Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT black screen errors and issues during firmware and software updates.

Also I noticed the following hardware build issues:

  • The hinges are really week – just personally I do not believe the hinges will sustain 3 years of usage.
  • There were scratches (tiny but scratches) on my unibody case (next to the ports and battery button)
  • The lower plate covering the bottom of the laptop is held in place by 4 screws on top. One of the 4 screws was not all the way in giving the device a physical bump on that point and also looking ugly.
  • For a 2500+$ Laptop I would seriously expect better

For the Firmware issue I observed there seems to be a solution which MacBook Pro owners should memorize (in order to avoid panic). There are several resources describing the correct steps and pre-cautions for updating the MacBook Pro’s Firmware:

Summary:

When the firmware fails this is not necessary a sign for permanent failure. Click Restart normally or cold-restart your Mac. Do not press-and-hold the power button of the Mac. Eventually the Mac will beep 9 times (3 short, 3 long, 3 short – the tones will be played once and do not repeat. During the tones the power LED may blink but blinking does repeat eventually). Do not touch the Mac. The Mac will attempt to recover to an older version of the EFI Firmware. During this process the LED may continue to blink. The Process may take up to 30-60seconds. After the process you may retry the firmware update taking Apples precautions into account.

Find your luggage… January 29, 2008

Posted by Steven in Internal.
add a comment

I know it’s stupid but I am happy about it so I will note this down anyway. I am fighting my way through metropolitan cities of the world and I have been looking for a decent companion to do that with. Sometimes I take a backpack, sometimes I just grab one of the nice store paper bags. But it was clear I needed metropolitan proof luggage to accompany me.

During this year’s winter closing sale I found one specimen that looked just fine. I picked a duffel bag style weekender from hugo boss – red label. It is slightly different from the one pictured because it came from the autumn collection 2007. It’s price was heavily reduced so I did not care. It has brown adjustable handles and it is entirely made of soft black and brown calf skin.

I recently received an e-mail from the MindGym. Some thriving company to deliver costly manager and high-potential training. It seems like an interesting proposition. Developing story.. Let me know what you think about it.

Christmas is More December 21, 2007

I guess it’s here. The inevitable merry Christmas is knocking on my door again. I will try my best to get into the mood but right now it doesn’t feel so ‘merry’. Well anyway. The good thing is that it’s this part of the year where we’ll get in touch again – where we tell each other briefly how we have been and where we check who really is looking after us. So I do wish my readers merry Christmas and a great start for 2008.

Merry Christmas
