My blog post of today: Sell your iPad. Buy a dog. Internet is a scam.
 ·  Translate
Vaikka Facebookin pientä, noin Helsingin kokoiseen ihmismäärään kohdistunutta testiä pitäisi pienenä ongelma, se muistuttaa tärkeästä asiasta. Internet ei ole totta, kirjoittaa Pekka Pekkala blogissaan.

Saiskos olla kojetauluun Applea vai Androidia. Microsoftin eeppinen epäonnistuminen Fordin kanssa hidasti koko alaa.
 ·  Translate
Autojen käyttöjärjestelmät ovat usein toivottoman monimutkaisia käyttää, mutta toiveita paremmasta on onneksi luvassa. Fordin kaltaista epäonnistumista ei kaipaa enää kukaan.

Scary.
 
You’ve been looking for the perfect pair of hiking boots online, but haven’t gotten around to pulling the trigger. Starting today, if you’re out and about and near a store that carries those boots, you might see a Google Now card showing you the product and price to remind you that you wanted them. Now all you have to do is pop into the store and check if they’re in stock! Just be sure to update your #GoogleSearch app for Android now (http://goo.gl/idgt3y) to get the new reminder.

Asuuko teillä teknologiavastainen mörökölli? Tai onko juhannusmökille tulossa se tuttu täti, joka ei missään nimessä tarvitse mitään uutta mutta roikkuu kännykässään jatkuvasti, kysyy Pekka Pekkala.
