Jens is a legend

He's been making stuff for Amigas for years. Although he's not cheap, and these newly released Vampire boards are gonna really hurt his business imho.

Ling live the analogue gap!

I fear Youtube downloading may become more difficult in the future, but they will never be able to prevent it.

Torrents are still the best for albums.

Soulseek works best for single tracks and rarities.

Apparently.

Facebook's creepiness knows no bounds

Anybody who uses Whatsapp or Instagram probably needs their head checked.

I am still just about using Fakebook, but ditched the app long ago, and never give them any info they don't need to know.

Fuck that

Let me run that camera software on my own home server! No way am I paying so that I'm left with a veritably bricked device whenever the company goes titsup. Or even better, when they just decide they don't want to support the product any more. Scum.

I'm optimistic.

I honestly believe that there is so much residual goodwill in the Nokia name, that even after all these years they stand a good chance of being a success. Even after Windows Phone. The phones will almost sell themselves.
