New Idea: Chargekill

I just had this great idea for a (yet ficional) gadget called CHARGEKILL. Imagine you had this device that goes between your charger and your socket. You’d have one device per charger, be that iPod, mobile, bluetooth headset, you name it. It cuts the power automatically once your appliance has stopped charging, hence saving energy. …

It’s fun to read though, and a completely different writing personality from what I would write in English. Hence I’ve built a new outlet for this personality, a site called GESELLSCHAFTSKRITIK (translates into “Social Cristsicm”).

Something Fishy about eBay

Since eBay’s policy change about search results, shop prices and final value fees, things have been very different for me as a seller. Success turned into failure, making eBay more of a money making scheme for the people who run it and turning it away from what it used to be.
