I couldn’t help it. The English in the post was so bad I had to state the case. Sure, it only had one “like” and probably almost nobody had seen it, but all the same, it cried out “auto-translate”. The sentence structure was not blatantly incorrect, just…off. Sure, there were several actual mistakes, but they… Continue reading Enemy at the gates: content marketing vs natural language (vs litigation)
You will be extremely hard-pressed to find a negative review of “The Queen’s Gambit”, a Netflix series about a chess prodigy. So let me do my best. We are living in a cinema-free pandemic period with limited choices. Important major international releases are frozen, production of new ones restricted seriously. Netflix can sit at a… Continue reading The Queen’s Gambit isn’t just bad. It is proof that Netflix has made us stupid.
Tech pundits have often bashed at Google’s ever-changing messaging solutions array. Let me assure you: Google simply doesn’t care. There is little useful data in your silly little chats. It will not help the algorithms improve, it will not help them serve better ads. I know, I know, this is just a theory. Nobody knows… Continue reading Messages and Music: Google doesn’t care
I have gone on record as stating that I would sacrifice a finger (possibly even a whole hand) for access to raw Google data. It is the closest to an omniscient, all-knowing creature there has ever been on the planet. Its data can pretty much predict all sorts of business and other developments. Facebook… Continue reading Facebook Horoscopes: the killer app
It was just a Facebook ad for a ring. Contrary to doom and gloom tech naysayers, their algorithm is pretty bad. I very rarely even pay attention to Facebook ads. But this fitness monitoring ring had the endorsement of the NBA. That little familiar logo in combination with the indicator that it had hundreds of… Continue reading The ring , the next President and the finest manager you have ever seen
Instagram dictates modern tourism, learn how to use it It was our last day in Reykjavik and we headed past the scenic old port. To a simulator. That’s right. After two weeks in Iceland and a whole lot of very impressive experiences, we went to a helicopter fly-over machine. We had been on glaciers, inside… Continue reading The best thing on my holiday you can do at home
Many of my friends think I hate Greece. It is true I am very tough on its people, businesses and government. I openly support the famous marbles from the Parthenon taken by Lord Elgin staying in the British Museum. I fully justified austerity measures as well deserved. I even downplayed the massive recent success of… Continue reading Time travel now available in Greece
This is no conspiracy theory. The Greek government has done an admirable job handling the pandemic. To be honest, it was much easier than others. We have no economy. Sending everyone home when half the population isn’t working anyway is no big decision. Taking an aggressive approach when your economy depends largely on tourism is… Continue reading Greece using Covid19 to leapfrog ahead!
My partner works for a major airline. They have tens of thousands of people that come into contact with travellers every day. Here are some aspects of flight attendants in particular that make them worthy of being examined for possible clues about the new coronavirus: 1. It is impossible for a flight attendant (FA) to… Continue reading How come flight attendants don’t get the virus?
Did you know that contact with silver kills the coronavirus? In fact, according to most Greek priests, it kills all strands of the virus, even the new ones, even the ones we don’t know much about yet. Because the spoons used in communion are silver. 1+1=101 In case you haven’t visited a Greek church, Holy… Continue reading Major scientific breakthrough on the virus from Greece
