Wifi in Frankfurt and other observations

Hey, there’s an iPhone cake for you over on my link blog thanks to Gizmodo.

We had a wonderful meal including home-made Apple Cake. Yummy.

Some other observations about Germany? Having wifi in the public train station in the airport in Frankfurt rocked. Love the old 1950-style mechanical signs. Most American airports have gone to far neater digital signs, but seeing something mechanical reminds us all of a time that’s slipping away. Here’s a picture of it on iStock photo. It makes a cool mechanical noise as each entry flips through various characters.

Anyway, got free wifi here in my mom’s sister’s house (she got it in October, totally shocked me cause she was pretty computer illiterate when we met during my mom’s illness last May).

Hope you’re having a good weekend. I’m taking off until Tuesday to just spend some time with Maryam and my mom’s sister and have fun in the German countryside.

  1. Yup, they make great apfelkuchen in Germany.

    to another commenter: Germany isn’t backwards. It’s just that the whole of Europe is not that keen on modernizing every single thing possible.

  3. The mechanical panels are widespread in Europe, especially in train stations, as they are much more reliable than their digital counterparts. Plasma screens have to be replaced after about 2 years.

  5. Hi

    Got to your page from blogbharti. I am Tarun here, I am planning a Blogcamp in India (Pune), if possible try to make it to it, if not then do try to participate through internet, using Youtube, Slideshare etc.

    I have found few other guys who are also very enthusiastic about having a Blogcamp. We are already in process of contacting some good bloggers like you and others on Blogbharti.

    The venue will be decided soon, we have few good places in mind. We are already talking to a few people to sponsor food and tshirts, bags and goodies. But all these things are secondary. Success of a Blogcamp is dependent upon it’s participants and that is where we are focusing right now.

    Do share you thoughts on it.

    We also have our blog (www.blogcamppune.blogspot.com)

  7. Dominic: oh, I actually like the new ones better. They provide more information, are quieter, look better, are easier to fix, and have other advantages. It’s just that the older, mechanical ones do have a certain romance about them.

  13. Robert, with free WiFi in your aunt’s house, can you really resist not blogging again until Tuesday? I expect you’ll see something to blog about before then.

    Meanwhile, have fun.
