I know it’s not but Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead was the series finale. It was emotional but was it emotional enough? Probably not. But how could a story like this possibly end?

Today, the people behind popcorntime.io, one of the most popular Popcorn Time forks, closed the doors. The reason is a bit vague, but also today, coincidence or not, they released a “legal” version called Butter (tu tu tu tu tu tu tu). It’s basically Popcorn Time, the same code, without the lines that made it controversial.

Apple is not the first company to see apps as the future of TV (although they might think they are), but the question is if the apps have to be on your TV.

Having not played last years Advanced Warfare, the double jumping and wall-running was completely new for me when I started playing the Call of Duty: Black Ops III beta. And to be fair, I was a bit skeptical about it. I didn't really have fun playing Ghosts and went back to the older games instead. After reading hands-on experiences in the months before this beta and after a few days of playing it, all the doubts are gone.

One of the tougher things about selling the idea of Twitter to new users is that it serves a different purpose for everyone, so communicating what Twitter exactly is, is hard. You can’t simply tell them “hey, welcome to Twitter, this is how you should use it.”

Rando was an app from a while ago that I really enjoyed. You could send a picture to a stranger and he or she could send one back. You could only see the location. Apps like these are (anti)social experiments that are almost never meant to last, either because the user base isn’t large enough or the things they’re sharing are too… personal.

There are some movies you watched and some games you played as a kid you probably will never forget. I often saw something in a movie I wanted to do myself, because it looked so cool. I watched those movies unlimited times and played the games for way too many hours, often without fully understanding the game or playing any story missions.

Apps have been Microsoft’s longtime Windows Phone problem. Not every major app is on the platform and the ones that are, are often not on par with the Android and iOS versions. For example, Windows Phone users are left wondering if the recently released Periscope, that didn’t even find its way to Android at launch, will ever be at the platform. There are some developers making great third party clients, Poki (Pocket) for example, but this is only possible when the official app maker has a decent API system and appreciates third party work.

The Watch UI looks unintuitive and overly complicated. There are so many things you can do, too many things. I wouldn’t be surprised if they announce that you can read magazines on it, because they really seem to believe people want to do things like that on a very very tiny display. There isn’t a killer feature. Perhaps it’s its design, but it is not really appealing to me as some of the circular smartwatches.

The whole “Google is splitting up Google+” news brings some speculation with it and I think Google could (or should) communicate this in a better way. Announce this and tell everything right away or wait until I/O and avoid the confusing situation we’re in now

The Internet of Things (IoT) is coming soon and, in some ways, already here. It’s not just about making smart devices, but they also need to be aesthetically pleasing, so it seems. Look at the Nest products or the recently announced Eero. But there are some questions I have.

I never really read Bloomberg. I watched a video now and then, but always went straight to the technology video page. Now, I do read articles occasionally and even visit the homepage. And that’s probably what’s wrong with Bloomberg’s new bold design.

One is called Project Spartan, made by Microsoft and is based on a new version of the Trident engine, used by Internet Explorer. The other is called Vivaldi, made by a company founded by Opera co-founder John von Tetzchner and is based on Chromium, using Google’s Blink engine.

Sooner than expected, Microsoft released a new build of Windows 10 technical preview for Windows Insiders. I waited for the consumer preview, because that version is much closer to the final version that will be released soon. Not everything Microsoft announced at Wednesday’s event will be present in this update, such as Project Spartan, the new web browser.

I believe in love at first sight. I’m talking about websites by the way. The first impression you have when you visit a website is really important, at least to me. If I don’t like the way a website looks, I probably don’t visit it frequently. The design is important, but the layout perhaps even more so. If I don’t like it, I might be gone within ten seconds.

I'm not really into cars and I don't know why. I love racing games and watching F1, but I have no idea how a car works. Now that cars are getting smarter, that might just change. Mercedes unveiled their beautiful concept car, that doesn't require a driver to get from one place to another at this year's Consumer Electronics Show. It's the most interesting car I've ever seen.
