Google Nexus One: Why there’s no Froyo (Android 2.2) for the European Vodafone version (EPF30) yet.

by kai 01/07/2010

When I was living in Germany (back in the days) – Vodafone Germany used to be the most annoying mobile services provider ever. They basically took any phone they were selling, disassembled the firmware and the OS and rebranded the whole bloody device with their Vodafone corporate red, Vodafone live! and all sorts of other sh*t (yes, I mean it exactly this way).

CENTEROS: Data Center Management with Flex

by kai 14/04/2010

I just thought, I’d take a bit of time to show off one of the projects we’ve been working on recently: CENTEROS – an affordable software for Data Center Management.
