Samsung Tab 2 Review – The Good, The Bad & The Unacceptable

10 days ago, I bought a tablet (and my first Android device, BTW). Since nearly all of my tech is from Samsung and I was mostly satisfied with all of it, I picked the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 instead of the Asus MeMO Pad. Possibly a mistake. The Good The hardware of the device works […]

Best Linux Software (Text Editor) – Enki

Third post in a series of short introductions of MY favorite Linux applications There are some good text editors available on Linux (Geany e.g.), but Enki became my favorite within days.

Linux Mint 13 Maya Cinnamon or MATE vs. OpenSuSE 12.1 KDE

Since Microsoft will stop making OSs for desktop PCs (Windows 8 is a phone/tablet OS!), it was time to upgrade my Linux alternative (Ubuntu 10.4) to a more actual distribution, cause it hadn’t qualified as a full-time replacement of Windows. Newest Ubuntu was no (convenient) option cause Gnome 3 and Unity are intolerable (out of […]

e-Reader – iRiver Story HD

Yesterday I got my newest gadget – an iRiver Story HD. Thought about buying an e-reader since the first Kindle came out, but always hesitated cause of DRM.
