That’s twice the amount of visitors of last year…(Read More)

Blogging stats for September

I put a lot of time and effort into keeping my blog updated with new content. Just ask my wife how much time I spend in my office, outside of “regular” office hours. I enjoy sharing my experience – good or bad – or solutions to problems it took me hours figuring out. But what keeps…(Read More)

SAP TechEd is SAP’s premier technology event for learning, networking, training, and education on the SAP platform and technologies. Just like last year, SAP TechEd takes place…(Read More)

Compared to past iPhone launches, this year’s iPhone 7 launch didn’t go well for many Apple fans, me included. In this post I’ll share my personal experience and strategies for next year’s launch. In the last couple of years, I always got my new iPhone on launch day. I don’t…(Read More)

Olympics Rio 2016

I’m an athletics fan and wanted to watch the 100m/200m sprints in Rio. But we don’t have cable, so NBC’s live stream didn’t work for us. In this post I’ll show you an easy way to watch or live stream the Olympics in Rio without a cable provider. We…(Read More)

One of my longtime complaints with Apple has been the lack of feedback both developers, and especially public beta testers get on reported defects and feature requests. But every so often, Apple surprises me and responds to feedback I submitted. I file bug reports and enhancement requests through Apple’s Feedback Assistant for macOS and…(Read More)

In this post I’ll share my thoughts on what’s currently going on in this country and more specifically, on the phenomenon called Donald Trump. Disclaimer: I’m not a US citizen, so I’m not allowed to vote, I don’t have any stake in this presidential race and I am not affiliated…(Read More)

As an Apple fan, the annual World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) is probably one of the most exiting technology events of the year. This year was no different and I’m super excited about the next versions of iOS, watchOS and macOS. Below are my first impressions of the new releases. Despite my excitement, I…(Read More)

Washington D.C.

Our first family trip to the nation’s capital was in February of 2015, when the city was hit by a massive snow storm. The weather at the time made it difficult to fully enjoy what Washington D.C. had to offer, so we decided to come back this year in summer. Lucas wasn’t…(Read More)

From a consumer perspective, Apple News is a platform that hasn’t completely convinced me yet. I still open the WSJ app more often than I do the Apple News app. But as a publisher, I was intrigued and decided to get my feet wet with Apple’s publishing platform. To sign up as a…(Read More)
