The quick week twenty eight (B2) summary ...
A busy week, especially in the evenings with the VDI-Teacher event and the meeting of all parents (two representatives per class) for the whole school of my youngest daughter. The 1st meeting 5 years back could be held in a small room, now we need the entry hall of the school. Still another three years to go until the new school is reaching full capacity for all classes (grade 5 to 13).
Did you see the new foldable mobile phones (I think a new name is required) from Samsung and Huawei this week?

Unbelievable, what is possible from a technology perspective in the meantime, and what kind of prices the companies are planning to reach - 2,000$ for one mobile phone? This is far beyond the Apple standards and what you would be willing to pay for a touch pad. Palm (yes they are back again) is going in the opposite direction, to make smart phones smaller https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SE854gfrA2I
In the end you will have to decide every morning, which device fits best to the planned activities of your day and the color of your dress - smart watch, smart phone, smart pad, smart laptop, smart whatever ... AND on top of this, what would be the best status icon for the day .
I - the crazy engineer - just go on with my Ubuntu Touch OS mobile phone with reduced functionality that is just working as expected and needed. KISS - Keep it simple stupid - and do not worry about SMART *** and status icons . Life can be so easy ...
