Mar242014 - Twitter bans Turkey

This shows how ineffective 20th. century oppression has become in our world. To try to control the free Internet clearly is the beginning of your own demise. This picture from Turkey shows a defiant people, finding ways around the states ban on social media. I assume by now this DNS Server is blocked in most of Turkey - however, there are millions more. Good luck with that and welcome to the reality of the 21st. century.


Clip to OneNote

I am experimenting with OneNote since it is available for Free on all platforms. This Bookmarklet is very helpful:

OneNote for free for all platforms

Microsoft confirmed today that it is making a version of OneNote available for free on every major desktop and mobile computing platform, including even the Mac. Additionally, the firm has announced some new OneNote tools, OneNote Clipper and Office Lens, as well as new partner services and a new extensibility model that will make it possible for any cloud service to integrate with this amazing note-taking and thought organization solution.


Microsoft OneNote for Mac is here! And it's Free!

Microsoft released OneNote for OS X today - you can find it in the Appstore using this Link:


Searching the AppStore did not work for me - but that obviously should be fixed soon.

So download OneNote and enjoy! I prefer it over Evernote and the missing Mac version was the only reason for me, why I did not use it yet for all of my note taking - those days are finally over.

Great Product - great Price. Thanks Microsoft.

The app suggests what to do and what to see in your favourite destinations and shows you everything on the map for easy navigation. Now you can prepare your travel itinerary even faster than before, and find all the must-see attractions just like a local.
