Vera (TV series)

Recently, I finally started watching season 1 (2011) of Vera, a TV series rated at 8.1 on IMDb. My rating is a 9. Soon, I'll start watching season 12 (2023) of 14 (2025). Actually, my earlier perception of this series has been very, very wrong. This crime series is excellent despite its main character (ie, Vera). "Vera is a British crime...

Apple cancels its autonomous electric car project

Intro LO: Apple’s decision (to cancel its autonomous electric car project) may well be far more important than it looks like.

It makes perfect sense that allegations must be proven because how do you prove your innocence? My 2018 blog is even more relevant due to ongoing trials by media. Usually, the old Dutch and English saying applies: where there is smoke, there is...

If you’re not paying for the product, then YOU are the product

Last Friday, a free antivirus tool was accused of selling sensitive data of about 5 million of its Dutch users (eg, Telegraaf, Wiki). The Dutch indeed love free stuff and thus make an easy target. In a distant past, I've used this Windows tool as well. Such tools are, however, quite irrelevant in macOS. Back then, I assumed this Czech company was Dutch. For that...
