An Open letter of complaint to Netflix Switzerland.

An Open letter of complaint to Netflix Switzerland.

Dear deceptive content distributors, When I have wanted to watch a number of documentaries the subtitles have been in German on english commentary documentaries.

If you do nothing to resolve this problem I will stop paying monthly for your content as you are not delivering what I am paying for. Do not cut corners. Be professional.

Thoughts on Journalism deaths and those affected by conflicts and war.

Thoughts on Journalism deaths and those affected by conflicts and war.

“The implications of these numbers can be put in another way: good journalism is not just the responsibility of the journalistic community; it is a global effort that must be bolstered by individual governments’ commitment to protecting the freedom of the press, and fought for in the face of authoritarian entities.

Ingress and the Sony Xperia Z3

Ingress and the Sony Xperia Z3

Ingress is a game that requires a data connection, GPS data and the screen to be on. As a result of this battery consumption is high.

Ocean Gravity
