“…so ….efficient!” The sportscaster was struggling to find the right words after the Bucks won the championship. Giannis Antetokounmpo had some pretty impressive stats. But other than a few blocks was he spectacular? No, of course not. He never is. Despite his unique physical gifts, the man can’t even make a cool dunk. Unless you… Continue reading The Greek Freak is killing the NBA: how a wonderful person is in conflict with an organization’s core values and audience expectations
It is fascinating to watch the media, analysts or financial whiz kids try to explain how and why Google does anything. How they enjoy the “failures” or run through the “threats” to the company. “Google just can’t seem to get it together in messaging apps” writes one guru. “Privacy issues could damage its advertising revenue”… Continue reading You are all wrong about Google. 2-5 years wrong.

When Cook… Continue reading What nobody is telling you about the new Macs
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)
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.

We had been on glaciers, inside… Continue reading The best thing on my holiday you can do at home
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.

Just take whatever the article says and add “oh, and somebody thought it would be a good idea to delete this article”.
