It’s the small things that make OS X so outstanding… such as this dialog box which appears when you perform software updates on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) running from battery power. Nice 😉
Finally, I’m back with the road-warriors again. The last weeks, my MacBook Pro and I were bound to my desk because it was running without a battery. It had died (the computer just went out when the battery’s capacity reached about 30%), so I had to leave the battery at the Gravis store in Munich (as Apple does not [yet] have any official stores in Germany, Gravis IMHO is the best choice).
Since I bought my MacBook Pro in 9/2006 I’ve had 3 replacement batteries so far. This is the forth one. I hope it actually stays alive a little longer than a few months. And (just in case) I was able to buy another Apple battery on eBay for a quite affordable price, so I might now be able to (at least half-way) compete with a certain Thinkpad owner who coded during the whole flight from Germany to San Francisco…
The mailman’s truck was half full/half empty after he delivered all of my Christmas gift packages… I wonder if packaging at Amazon could be a little more optimized 😉
The Nespresso espresso machine is V.’s christmas present for me and my present for her 😉 The crema of Nespresso’s caffè espresso is just awesome!
Günter Wallraff machte sich in der Vergangenheit mit investigativen Reportagen einen Namen. Seine letztes Projekt führte ihn zu Call-Centern, bei denen er im Mai 2007 in einem Zeit-Artikel die Geschäftspraktiken aufdeckt.
