In a Volvo presentation yesterday I was presented with their opinion that electric buses aren't cheaper than diesel buses to operate. I can only surmise that [EU-wide move to electric buses] it's being done to keep to EU CO2 commitments. Meanwhile automated electric personal transport is going to completely blow away the old 'routes and timetables' model where 60-seat buses will be near useless. We'll have to spend billions, again. Honestly I would rather see the money spent on new infrastructure in order to prepare cities for an even better solution. Constantly moving, non-parking, on-demand routed, driver-less and personal 'public' transport is the future, in just 15 years.

Extra: Public transport networks in Germany account for about 25% of CO2 emissions.

Testing a Lumia 950 XL with docking station at home and with every press of the keyboard I wonder i feel that a Chromebook with Android apps would be better.

In a podcast a few weeks ago I said I felt it was the end of the road for small screen low cost Windows. This week I'm even more worried for the sector.

true, I don't get how they think this is ready for the market, especially not with even less poweful hardware in the future

Testing worked well last night. Fast setup. Fast breakdown. Good lighting and audio. The stream got 'stuck' at YouTube though and no-one was able to see it! Luckily I record the video locally as it streams.

Perhaps not what you're looking for, but that second cam might be more pleasant if it were sitting next to you, looking at the desk, almost like looking over your shoulder. So the view would be rotated 90 degrees to the right.

Queuing to order food, picking it up yourself, eating with local Telekom staff at lunchtime. This 'new concept' style is somewhat over-rated in my opinion. Clean and smart location and food good though.

Average quality hotel is clean and friendly. Value for money is good although don't expect the buffet breakfast to run room smoothly in high season. Hotel building 2 has no reception and is situated across from a car park that can be noisy from early to late. Great position for exploring the area though. Nearby restaurants suitable for all tastes.

One of my favorite bars in Bonn. Its busy though so although the food is reliable, it isn't the most relaxing of places to eat.

You know a hotel is honest when they only charge €5 for 7 days internet usage. Clean, tidy, modern rooms. Good location.

Make sure you board the steam-powered ride. There's a diesel locomotive that's not half as interesting as the smelly steam locomotive! 8 minutes at about 10km/h is worth it. Take a look a the cabin classes and imagine. . .
