Opened the G+ app on my tablet, here's what I found at the top. Nicely done, and :))
The change isn't exactly sudden; in my opinion Apple has long replaced MS as the big meany on the block, but I was still a long way from actually going back to use any of their software except where I had to (e.g. WinXP in a virtual machine for my scanner, which, sadly, is not supported under Linux.)
But when I signed up for Facebook, I wanted to use a totally clean e-mail address, so I created one @outlook.com. Since then I have installed some other apps on my phone — something else that's contributing to the change in my opinion, the fact that they even offer applications like their office suite, for free, on Android.
What really impressed me, though, was the way they set up the two-factor authentication in connection with the phone app. I don't know if it's as safe as Google's version (although I don't see why it shouldn't be), but it sure as hell is a lot more convenient. When you sign in from a new device, you'll get a notification from the app and all you need to do is hit "Approve" or "Deny". Beats typing in a code every time by a long shot.
I stayed at my parents house Saturday night, but I still wanted to get some exercise in on Sunday, especially since I had to work Saturday morning and had a six hour drive afterwards. The obvious downside of my treadmill (which I still love and use almost every day) is that it's not exactly portable :P. The area where they live is far less hilly than where I live, so hiking doesn't have quite the impact it does here, and also, since I had other plans for the day, I didn't want to take an hour and a half walking through the forest. So I brought my running gear and went for a run yesterday morning — for the first time in two or three months.
All I can say is, my other training (power walks on my treadmill and hiking on the mountain mostly) must definitely be paying off, because I lasted a lot longer than I expected. And from looking at the data from my watch it's quite obvious that of all the cardio exercise I do or ever have done, running is still the most efficient. So I decided to pick it up again and went again this morning. Unfortunately I noticed that it's time for some new running shoes, or at least will be pretty soon. The ones I have are still usable, but if I want to make this my main training, I'll need something better. Which brings me back to my original statement — WHY PINK???
Oh well. I shouldn't by shoes online anyway. I guess I'll get in the car and head over to Hameln tomorrow, since I'm planing to take an exercise break tomorrow anyway.
What I didn't do was install the official app on my phone. I went for Tinfoil for Facebook instead, which looks a hell of a lot safer.
