  • macOS 10.13 High Sierra: The Ars Technica review
    The yearly read on all important changes with the new macOS update. This year: Nothing fancy, but many things under the hood.
  • Sonos may have just saved itself
    About Sonos One, Sonos’ new spaker with built-in Alex functionality (and Google Home and Siri (via iOS and AirPlay 2) coming up). I repeatedly thought about buying a Sonos for our home in the past, but the lack of open-ness (stream-wise) stopped me. I did not want to use their proprietary app. That is changed now – great! But now I’d have an always cloud-listening device in my home, which I cannot wrap my mind around. (Apple’s HomePod promises to be a good privacy compromise, but super expensive…)

  • Fail-Safe Nuclear Power
    Bold claim. But interesting, how China tries to feed the hunger for energy of the country by using (and extending upon) 50 year-old technology. And speaking of high-energy, gas-cooled reactors… (Haven’t read the technology background article, yet.)

  • The LaTeX fetish (Or: Don’t write in LaTeX! It’s just for typesetting)
    He definitevly speaks the truth, although I find a few aspects missing: Length of the document, revisions/version logs, reproducibility. Also: Learning curves. I like to use LaTeX for everything which needs to have a special form. For the rest, I’d rather use Markdown with pandoc to PDF. For slides, I’m using LaTeX Beamer since about two years. I like the possibilites it offers (but its at so many times a huge time pit…)

  • Sind Sie auch … gegen Genfood?
    Interessant, wie wir seit Trump von postfaktischer Gesellschaft sprechen, aber das in einzelnen Teilen schon längst hier machen – wenn man diesem Artikel glaubt. Der Gesundheitsaspekt gentechnischer-veränderter Lebensmittel hat mich jetzt mehr oder minder überzeugt, zumindest im vorgestellten Fall; bleibt allerdings noch die industrialisierte, Corporate-Landwirtschaft als großer Kritikpunkt.
  1. Und es liegt absolut nicht daran, dass letzte Woche zu wenig Einträge auf der Liste waren. Absolut nicht. []

  • A Critical Problem
    Nice-looking photo, right? Well. Actually, that photo might not be that far away from criticality. How far away (as in mass) is not sure because it is not known what kind of plutonium it is in the picture. In any case, it’s interesting to get a small behind-the-scences glimpse at nuclear storage safety.
