Open Data Mashup: Windpower in Bavaria / Windstrom in Bayern

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Where are the wind power plants located in Bavaria? Seems there are not that many in Oberbayern and Niederbayern.
Wo wird Windstrom in Bayern produziert? Scheinbar nicht viel in Ober- und Niederbayern.

My old iPhone 3GS just burned and cracked open on the sofa.

Sunday, February 9th, 2014

Update 2: I called Apple’s hotline. Their robot first told me i had to pay 35 € in advance in order to tell them about the problem. I tried it anyway. The guy on the phone told me that in this case they’ll talk to me without Apple Care. Unfortunately they only proposed a repair option for 160 €.
He couldn’t tell me what would have happened when the phone had burned the sofa. Anyway i’ll now will give my old iPhones to recycling and not display them in the shelf. Poor old first gen iPhone.
And no. I didn’t use the iPhone since 2009 after Apple declared to use location data.

Update: Damn. This thing is still growing. I’ll better bring it outside.

I am happy the sofa didn’t burn, too.
