Wimbledon final and soft drink ads

Leisure and Pleasure, Thoughts

Watching right now Wimbledon men’s final between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer (btw, hoping that Djokovic will win it). Almost every ad between games and sets are from producers of soft drinks (Nestea, Coca-Cola, Schweppes) and energy drinks (unknown RedBull competition). They are promising fun, health life, enjoyment and similar crap. If I can give you some advice in this area I can tell you just don’t buy anything like this. Think logically… If they have so much money to spend on advertisement in prime time of biggest sport events…read more

Instagram crashes on start – when big company make things wrong


I am having iOS 6 installed on my iPhone (intentionally didn’t want to switch to ugly iOS 7) and yesterday on March 4th 2014 I installed the Instagram update.

Global warming or global cooling – what is more dangerous for an IT?

Technologies, Thoughts

It is the end of the week, so let’s look around us what is happening and how we will spend our weekend. In USA temperatures are -35°C but here in Europe we have 15°C and no snow for skiing.
