Who gives a sh*t management advice

It is now almost a week without power, thankfully water is back on.  As usual on TV and social media everyone is playing the blame game.  And you know you can’t win.  As different types of information flies around, the complexity is overwhelming and usually nothing changes.  In any organization, family or simple task where… Continue reading Who gives a sh*t management advice

No serious user (let alone a company) should trust Apple silicon, here’s why

Let me explain how the tech world works for Intel.  It isn’t that they made “a wrong decision” or “were late embracing new materials” or whatever journalists wrote recently under the influence of the Apple marketing machine.  Sure, we all would have loved a David and Goliath story, or something truly exciting and revolutionary in… Continue reading No serious user (let alone a company) should trust Apple silicon, here’s why

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

The best thing on my holiday you can do at home

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
