    Meine Interpretition: Gute Werbung für guten Kaffee. Und Aeropress. Und Kapselkaffee, der zwar auch gut ist, aber irgendwie immer gleich. Was manchmal gut ist, aber nicht immer. Es ist kompliziert. Und einfach.

  • Bayern München: Schaut auf dieses Spiel! – Fußball – FAZ

    In der Fußball-Froschperspektive, die sich die Münchner Mitbewerber in der Rückrunde fast ausnahmslos zu eigen gemacht haben, droht allerdings etwas ganz Entscheidendes in dieser Saison aus dem Blick zu geraten: die Kunst.

    Die Bayern! Die Bayern? Böse Bayern! Gute Bayern! Super Bayern! Mir sind die Bayern nicht egal, aber ich feiere keine Meisterschaft, ich lege mein Smartphone zur Seite und gehe zu Bett. Wobei ich zugeben muss, dass ich in dem Moment, als Robben den Ball an Weidenfeller vorbei direkt ins Tor schoss und die Bayern somit die Champions League gewannen, aufsprang und jubelte. Warum? Für die Kunst! Für das beste Spiel! Für die beste Mannschaft! Und für Philipp Lahm: 134/134 Pässe, 100%. Kunst!

  • Takeover: A new Football Chairman joins the board

    Even if you don’t care for sports much, this is a game worth checking out. It’s a real business sim in a way that so many iOS games aren’t. This isn’t your typical Kairosoft-clone “watch numbers go up forever” business game with no fail state. It’s entirely possible to run your football franchise into the ground — just ask my first two clubs. Success in Football Chairman requires a modicum of business acumen.

  • Daniel Sturridge: ‚The key is play. It’s not about money and medals‘ | Football | The Guardian

    Maybe people think I chased the money because I have played for big clubs in City and Chelsea, but I always chased the opportunity to play. When you are a kid you dream of playing as much as you can until your mum calls you in and you can’t play any longer. For me the key is to play football. It’s not about the money and it’s not about the medals [Sturridge has a Premier League, Champions League and two FA Cup winners‘ medals from his time at Chelsea and says he earned them all]. It’s about enjoying it and living my dream.

  • Virtual Reality is going to change the world | notch.net

    Fortunately, the rise of Oculus coincided with competitors emerging. None of them are perfect, but competition is a very good thing. If this means there will be more competition, and VR keeps getting better, I am going to be a very happy boy. I definitely want to be a part of VR, but I will not work with Facebook. Their motives are too unclear and shifting, and they haven’t historically been a stable platform. There’s nothing about their history that makes me trust them, and that makes them seem creepy to me.
