My girlfriend likes playing Gambling-Games on her Smartphone or Tablet. I also play Poker with a few Dollars casually. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Depending on whether the Money for the little gambling fun is disposable. Therefore I found the Quizshow-App Cash Show interesting, which my girlfriend newly “discovered”. The App-Developer distributes 1.000 Euro two Times a day subdivided between his Quiz-Winners at 12am and 9pm. There comes the question in my mind: How does the App finance itself? The User don’t have to pay an entry fee to take part on the Quiz. This smells fishy to me. Continue reading Cash Show: A Quizshow-App, which wants his users to get 2.000 Euro daily
The guys from sipgate are really innovative regarding the german communication market. I found simquadrat genious, where you get a SIM card and a german landline number. Now there is a new project: Sipgate Satellite. That gets you a permanent free german mobile number where you can take and make calls over your internet connection.

With the mobile phone number accessed by internet connection there is no matter where in the world you are. So caller and yourself just pays german communication rates.

Administration of more than one PC is not a bed of roses. Especially in small companies or medium-sized enterprises, it’s often a horror, because of the fact that Computers, Network and Servers are grown “historically”. Who doesn’t know all oppurtinities he has to manage this, often drives a running shoe administration instead of remotely logging in. An important tool for automation of certain tasks like Updating software or Copying files during startup, are the startup scripts with type of Batch or Powershell. Unfortunately Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 are jackknifing this. Continue reading Windows 10 doesn’t execute Startup Scripts
In the past I was a fan of this URL-structure, which is often called permalink. This kind of structure gives the searchengine user the direct view of the date. This helps saving valuable “Click and View”-Time if you only look for newest websites. But Google has improved his Result Pages and shows the publish dates of the websites directly in the SERPS directly under the title with the help of structured data. Therefore this main bullet point became six feet under for me.
