Micro Jobs: Is it worth it at all?

At the moment they are on everyone's lips: Micro Jobs. It is a still smaller form of mini-jobs, which are mostly done online or for which you need at least a smartphone. There are different concepts, but in general, the framework principle works the same: companies take the Micro Jobs site zoom with an order. The order itself is broken down into many small pieces, each puzzle piece can be handled by a user. At the end of the puzzle is then assembled quasi again and the job was done. The Micro jobs are mostly for transcription jobs (translation of a video / audio in text form), categorization, or otherwise, does not require a lot of know-how. One thing that all providers but in common: They are using a crowd, a large user base that does the work.

The most interesting question of all is, of course: What you earn there actually, in these Micro Jobs? Well, this is different from provider to provider. Therefore, I present you here a few services before.

New Wikileaks Leak amusing rather than spectacular ... or does it?

The leak was indeed a good start: A logistics Panne a kiosk in Basel had already offered the Spiegel edition of tomorrow for sale. To read the new leak of the whistle-blower website Wikileaks be, and indeed the despatches of the Americans. So the reports about how America sees the world - and their politicians. Also from Germany. And our good Wester Wave is doing away not good.

Overall, it must be said, however, that the leak is not just "pops", such as the Iraq video, or even the countless documents. And although the scope of this leaks will probably be larger than the previous, it is not very much more exciting. In my opinion. I find it rather funny and amusing, such as the U.S. Department of State rated our politicians. Westerwelle, for example, was very critical and only Secretary of State, because the office binds to the post of Vice-Chancellor. Merkel other hand, was in better hands. Ouch!

And, actually ... that was not already known? Particularly by his "It is Germany here" -Auftritt was clear that the FDP-captain is not the best man for the office of the Foreign Ministry. In the aspect of it is rather amusing that the USA that looks exactly like that. The embarrassing thing is that the opinion of Americans is now public and the FDP characterized not just appear in a better light.

Everything else is so far not as spectacular: Obama scores points not in Europe so, Merkel is probably "pragmatic" and Seehofer has a limited horizon. Where's the scandal?

Blu-ray skip? Not with me.

Just now I was leafing through my RSS reader. That was actually pretty fast, Sunday's usually not so much going on in the blog world. But an article on Basic Thinking I could not get past: Basic Flashback: And if we just skip Blu-ray? . Roughly summarized it comes to the optical storage media slowly dying out due to the broadband expansion and thus more and more shooting from the floor streaming services. So why rely on Bluray player and immediately refrain entirely on quite valuable-looking discs?

The First Else is history - history is set

Unfortunately, there is sad news for fans of Emblaze First Else smartphone: There are difficulties with the supplier, which is the development of the mobile phone set . In addition, the developers were never quite satisfied with their own product.

The First Else is particularly struck by the innovative new controller. The menu had a fan structure , so that one could reach every sub-item and every function of the phone with your thumb. This was made possible a modified Linux version that powered smartphone.

Since the First Else, is history. Too bad, I had taken it in the secret circle of my favorites with. In addition, the development Emblaze has cost to date $ 40 million. A whole pile of money, considering that the project is simply dropped.
And what does the company do? They want to continue working on the OS on, so you can drive with licensing money. Admittedly, the control was awesome, even if just go right so compliant. Hardware developments, there will be no more Emblaze.

iPhone 4 Retina Display Test

Yes, it was a lot of talk about the iPhone 4 in the last days. I must confess frankly that I now can not find the new iPhone outstanding. It just blows me not from the stool. Solely the very high-resolution display makes me happy. Such resolution has so far had never been installed in a display. 960 × 640 pixels summarizes the display to be exact. Multiplying these figures, one arrives at a total of 614,400 pixels on 3.5 inches! Since one or the other course asks how that goes. The principle is quite easy: you make the pixels smaller, and gets more so on a surface. So sums up an inch on the iPhone 326 pixels. The eye can perceive (on a "normal" range) 300 pixels per inch. Applying this idea to the new iPhone, it becomes evident that our eye may not perceive the gaps between the many pixels.

I have at PCWorld found two shots that show and compare the display of the old and the display on the new iPhone.

Google makes Twitter competition: Google Buzz is here!

There are not passed a few minutes, as put Google at the press their new product before . It is a kind of real-time service status and is named Google Buzz . Before you begin to a little video.


These two minutes moving image material to illustrate very well the functions of Buzz. With Buzz, there is every Gmail account owner is able to inform other people about the current state of things. Have a prepared list of people has been created for the home, follow you. This list can be extended of course. Basically, the whole thing works so as Twitter.

Moreover, it is possible to connect the Buzzkonto with other social networking services like Twitter, friendfeed or flickr. Unlike Twitter, it is also possible to insert videos, photos or maps natively in the posts. Twitter are numerous side services such as these functions twitpic or Twtpoll ready. It is also possible to include all sites in the posts. For this purpose, the element " torn ". Negative is, of course, that may generate lots of traffic with the operators of the websites. All in all, countless media are directly involved in the posts.

Moreover, one can I decide whether a post is made public only for a private group of people or for all. With Twitter you can only generalize here, that is: either the entire account private or not.

A real advantage of Buzz, however, is the search for other relevant posts. Suggestions are always displayed under a Buzz. This could prove useful, Google put it in the page so search through, because they assessed the relevance of a website and not just as another search engine (at that time), were just looking for links.

Ultimately decides the mass which service they want to use. Google, however, from the outset in possession of countless GMail accounts. One or the other so should not be reluctant however, Buzz a try.
