Yellow glasses for driving at night.

Yellow glasses for driving at night. Yes. I got them. Yellow glasses for night driving. And they seem to work, which surprises me as I'm colour blind. I also have very light-sensitive eyes. I drove with sunglasses a few early mornings and that helped a lot but they do make things quite dark. How many people that read this use these yellow glasses as well? And do you think they're a great idea? No. These…

So... I'm officially on the band wagon.

Actually not this kind. I mean the Xiaomi Mi Fit Band. Wagon. Sort of. Well, you get the drift. An amazing friend of mine has such a thing. It's like a nice price Fitbit and it comes with an app. It measures all kinds of stuff like your heart beat (important; if that stops you should have a physician check you out), the number of steps you take each day (fitness related, health related and…

Phones, phones, phones

Phones. I'm intrigued by all the new phones that swamp the world. Nearly every day there's a new phone coming out, or so it seems. This is a world of communication. Being connected has become part of our life. Some people take it to extremes by being connected 24 hours every day. Modern smartphones, whether you're into Apple, Android, Windows, Tizen, the unfortunately (officially) deceased Ubuntu phone or any other platform, give you that option.

Purple doesn't exist.

Purple is a figment of people's imagination. Really. Believe me. I know this. And why do I know this? I have never seen it. That is why I don't believe in purple. It's amazing how many people are convinced that it does though. Even when I ask Google to show me 'purple' it comes up with something: This can't be purple. I see 3 entirely different things but none of them is purple (apart from…

A new phone.

I got a new phone last week. An Asus Zenphone 3. Yes, I stepped off the Samsung train for a change. Samsung has really nice phones but they also have really nice price tags. I had my eye on the Zenphone for a while already. Read about it somewhere, liked the specifications and the way it was shown by Asus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YW9JIOZ-IXM I also read lots of reviews. Many of them told me it's a great…

Who wants to live forever?

Do you want to live forever? Something tells me that many people will answer yes to this question. To live forever, to see how the world unfolds, perhaps travel to the moon and Mars someday. Yup, sounds great. Did you think about that? Suppose you can indeed live forever and be the person you were in the prime of your life. Be it 25, 30, 35, take your pick. You'd not only live forever, you'd…

Keeping your passwords safe in a safe safe.

Passwords. Keepass logo I'm a huge fan of Keepass. Keepass is a free program that will remember your passwords for you. It is very easy to use and it features 'auto-type' so you don't even have to copy your usernames and passwords, Keepass handles that for you. A little while ago I heard of Lastpass. It basically does the same thing and nicely integrates with your browser, Android and IOS devices. I installed it, imported…

America. Since it's in the news.

I didn't watch the in-ogre-ation yesterday. That was a good decision, everything happened without me just as well. This morning I was curious. About the @potus twitter account that now is in the twitter-capable hands of one Donald Trump. (Interestingly his original twitter account, https://twitter.com/therealdonaldtrump) doesn't exist any more.) Something struck me. Let me show you: Does this man strike you as a kind man? As someone who is happy? As someone who... cares about you?…

The Dakota pipeline.

Much has been said about it. But it's never enough. Since when is it the task of the police (you know, these people who uphold the law, protect, serve, saves us from crime and all that) to use force against peaceful protesters who stand up to protect their sacred lands (which is officially theirs) from being turned into a huge oil spill disaster waiting to happen? (Image via Google+) Guns, rubber bullets, bean bags (don't…

Make it easy on yourself.

Yesterday I dropped a bank order into the mailbox of my bank so something would be paid. On the lid was a large sticker: Make it easy on yourself! It continued telling me and the rest of the world that I could use their mobile app or the website to pay stuff. I know that. I have it and I use it at times. But... is that making it easy on myself? I had to…
