Nontifications

Over the past 2 months I enjoyed a blissful silence. A silence without any notification and disturbance. I decided to disable ALL notifications from my phone and it was magic! With the amount of notifications I usually receiver on a daily basis this was a cherry to pick, and it tasted like more to me.Our love was a notification Wondering if it could stay

Working 9-5 and sitting through some weekly meetings, not all notifications are welcome at the time of the event. And since they can spill in from every channeled app on your device, they are hardly ever beneficial at the time of the event itself.

Even though I truly enjoyed my moments of silence in the abyss, there are some ups and downs to this action. So lets start with the upsides:

Not bad right, but here are some drawbacks to consider.



The first conclusion to make here is that this was a good thing to consider and adapt to. Whenever I feel the distracting notifications taking over I now dig into their settings whenever I feel, and filter out what I do not need at that moment.

In just two months I noticed I had more time on my hands that I could spend more effective.This is why I consider it a success, less is more, and if I get a new follower somewhere, I will find out eventually!

Google Pixel

google pixel white unboxing Since it was my birthday today, I needed to get myself a nice treat. After some hard ponderings, and the fact that I shredded my Note Edge 5 by dropping it while biking, I decided the new Google Pixel would do just fine, and I was more than right about that.

Pokemon Go is dead already

About a month ago, Ingress game developer Niantic released Pokemon Go on their platform in a partnered deal with Nintendo. But what they did not know is that they killed the game long before release, or writing the first lines of code.

Both games greatly benefit from outdoor exploration, going to new places. The downside is gear that is either farmed or awarded when leveling up. Farming is done at locations indexed through ingress, and submitting new portals has been discontinued for about a year or so.

Here is an overview of our assigned portals and the portal-status during the measurements.

Screen Importance

To some people this may sound like mobile first but it is not. True, we live in a mobile driven generation, but that does not mean you have to put mobile first in the design and development progress. Look at the traffic stats of your product, are your mobile users really overruling the other users? Probably not, but if you think mobile first is the best approach for the ~12% of traffic on mobile devices be my guest.
