The new look …

All those years of sitting behind a computer-screen have come to bite me in the ass. I didn’t notice how bad my eyes were until I put it on this afternoon. It’s like night and day. So here he is … four-eyes Plaquet … I have to admit I actually like them.

When geeks die a little on the inside …

Aaaaargh …. you’ve got to be kidding me !, originally uploaded by ApplefanBE.

Having been obsessed with my cool little iPhone the past few weeks I guess it was bound to happen. When exiting the car (with the phone in a pouch in hand). I tripped over a safety belt (I didn’t fall) which sent my iPhone into it’s very own leap of faith.

*cue dramatical music* Noooooooooooooo ! *crack*

As you can see the large glass screen on the iPhone isn’t parking-lot or pavement-proof. Apple doesn’t repair it under warranty and charges a whopping $ 250 for repair (which is to be understood in some way … it is caused by being clumsy and the screen is the most expensive part on the phone). Still, the part is worth around 100 bucks (glass digitizer + LCD, which are glued together) so why does Apple have to charge so much extra ? Oh well. I’m probably going to buy an OEM part of the web and replace it myself (which will be quite a doozy). Let’s just hope it all works out …. and for all you fellow geeks with iPhones out there … wrap it good !

This is one of those things that could make your day … All you have to do is come a few steps further.

Peace and love

 Just finished watching “the love bug” from 1968. I just love the look and feel of this 60’s classic. The extravagant cars in all colours of the rainbow (Technicolor :-D), the clothes, the sets, I just love movies like that. And somehow I felt like sharing that with you guys. Loading up on content for a possible podcast, so check back soon.

  Take care,


Now in audio-form !

Considering podcasting again … it’s been a while.  

Comments are greatly appreciated … should I do it ? Would you guys actually listen to it ?
