Boy, I really enjoyed this kickstarter project.
As you know I bought myself an Apple watch. Yes the cheapest one because it doesn't make sense to pay more if you do not get more functionality.
I really love the Microsoft Surface Pro. It's a smooth well thought through device. The stylus, keyboard and mouse it all seems to blend perfectly. The multitasking feature that MS implemented in their OS on tablets works flawlessly.
They must have thought in Cupertino that MS took a giant leap and decided to put their iPad on steroids. The result a complete rip-off of the original MS Surface. Yes, Apple made it more stylish, but iOS is not so sophisticated as Windows10, but come on Apple, you can do way better than this or not?
It seems like a winning combination; biometric fingerprint scanning and the Home or Startbutton. This week Sony announced the availability of the new Xperia Z5 which has a nifty biometric feature.
While I was on Holiday I took the time to take some pictures of the beautiful island of Sylt with my Leica Q camera.

It is another step in the escalating cyberwar and it will get worse. IoT (Internet of things) which will explode over the next few years, will be another easy target to hack.
We need to focus on making cyberspace a safe and user-friendly place. So security is the key.
So prevention rather than aggression & repression.
