Neuen Scanner – kein Auto Mon, 14 Feb 2011 01:05:46 +0000 Beruflich bin ich gerade mal wieder so im Stress, dass ich es kaum schaffe hier zu posten. Der AudiQ5 ist fuer mich persoenlich erst mal auf Halde. Erstmal muss ein neuer Scanner her. Der alte Scanner funktioniert nicht mehr und ich habe Probleme.

Ich habe gerade bei Boingboing und dann bei Sam’s blog gelesen, dass der S1500 neatdesk von Fujitsu hervorragend sei. Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob ich mir diesen aneignen will, jedoch werde ich in mir wohl via Amazon bestellen.

Das Auto bleibt von daher erst mal im Autohaus stehen, denn auf den Scanner will ich nicht verzichten.

Audi A6 + Umzug Sun, 23 Jan 2011 17:46:44 +0000 Nachdem ich einige Tage hier nichts geschrieben habe, hier mal wieder ein paar Infos:

Audi started den A6 und geht damit auf BMW und Mercedes Jagd. Angeblich mit 300 PS und mit einem Startpreis von knapp unter 40.000 Euro. Kein schlechter Preis doch reicht’s eben nicht fuer ein Q5 😉

Ist jedoch ziemlich eine Powermaschine. Kunden sind wohl Manager und Firmen, die ihren Angestellten einen netten Firmenwagen geben wollen.

Auch mal Offtopic und nicht zum Thema Audi, jedoch ziehen wir Richtung Austria gegen April (beruflich bedingt), genauer gesagt: Wien. Wir suchen daher eine grosse 3-Zimmer-Wohnung Wien. Immobillienscout hat leider nicht geholfen, so andere Tipps bitte gerne per email an mich.

Viel werden wir dann zu dieser Zeit nicht posten, da der Umzug von Bayern nach Austria mit Sack und Pack dann doch schon ein Wenig Arbeit ist.

Music Sat, 11 Dec 2010 17:30:46 +0000 So I always have the problem of finding the right station in my car and the music of my Ipod Touch also gets sometimes annoying. I could use my smartphone, but since I don’t have an Iphone and synching data on other devices is as stupid as it gets, I always have the dilemma oft what to listen to.

So…I thought I might get an fm transmitter for my car. Problem is….a car fm transmitter often doesn’t work the way you want. Especially when it comes to charging multiple devices

But maybe that’s the solution: I just saw over at the Autocon FM Transmitter. It doesn’t solve the charging problem, but ”

“AutoCon comes with a 3.5mm Aux Cable, and for getting music from a device into the car radio, it uses rapid auto scan technology.”

Nice! And $45 is definitely worth the try.

Vehicle Noise Compensation (VNC) = SICK! Fri, 10 Dec 2010 22:23:29 +0000 So the new AudiQ5 comes with various stereo systems and for me personally it’s a bit weird, since I have tons of CDs in my car and kind of love it that way (yeah…I am old school, but my buddy has 2-3 disc duplicators, which he used in his previous job.

So once my car is ready…….I’ll have a hard time getting all those CDs on MP3s and then plug them into my car. It probably will take me a few days and some serious hard drive 🙂

Well..the Bang & Olufsen system is probably worth the switch:

– Technical specifications


* 14 loudspeakers


* 10-channel DSP amplifier – 505 watt


* Unique speaker grilles with a nice aluminium ring integrated
* Bespoke sound design by the acoustic team at Bang & Olufsen

Sound features

* Vehicle Noise Compensation (VNC) – automatic real-time adjustment of equalization and volume to compensate for changing noise levels
* Sound focus with the following settings: driver/front/rear/all (only feasible in cars with a navigation system)
* Surround level adjustment

Audi dealership Mon, 06 Dec 2010 03:07:56 +0000 So today I had a few minutes to spare and walked into the Audi dealership. Was wondering if and when they have the new Audi Q5 Hybrid available. The sales guy told me that they will ship early next year, but I can pre-order the car right away.

I felt a bit like I am in the Apple Store. Not sure if you have been in an Apple store, but you probably have heard that every sales person on the floor can actually swipe your credit card and take your cash. I believe the technical term for this industry is called “Point of Sale system” (see pos software reviews here).

Would be funny if the future allows you to just hit up a car dealer and pick up a car within 15 minutes. Anyways……seems like I have to wait a few months for my car. Or maybe not if Ehsan Bayat CEO of a partner company can help me out. I heard all German manufacturers are having long delays in delivering cars.

Car Photo Mosaic Thu, 02 Dec 2010 00:33:59 +0000 Photo mosaics are fun ways to express yourself and create artsy displays of things that are interesting to you. For people who love cars, photo mosaics on cars are great ways to do a unique art piece that is off the beaten past. Photo mosaics are often done showing beautiful natural landscapes, different types of animals, or vegetation. However, photo mosaics on cars are another way to have a collection of favorite cars on display in a classy and artistic way.

If you love cars, consider creating your own photo mosaic to use as a way to show other people your favorite types. Photo mosaics involve choosing several different pictures and arranging them in a large picture. The individual pictures are usually arranged in some sort of order, such as three pictures by four pictures. The arrangement depends on the number of pictures you're working with, but photo mosaics can range from very small with only a few pictures, to quite large with several pictures. The size of the photo mosaic and number of pictures can give completely different feels to the photo mosaic itself.

Photo mosaics on cars can still have a large range of creativity, depending on how you'd like to create it. For example, if you're interested in old cars, consider making a photo mosaic on all old cars that you're fond of. If you love cars from a certain brand and a certain year, you can make a photo mosaic that's filled with different cars that were all made in the same year. For people who especially love one brand of cars, that's another option to create a photo mosaic on. For example, consider making a photo mosaic with different Audis, to show how the car styles have changed through the years.

You could make photo mosaics on cars as a meaningful gift for a car enthusiast. For example, a photo mosaic filled with a loved one's favorite types of cars would be a great gift. Another idea is a photo mosaic with all different cars a person has ever owned. This would certainly bring about fond memories with the different cars, whether they were old beat up cars, or nice cars like Audis. Making a personal photo mosaic with your past cars is also a great way to remember your past cars. No matter what the use or occasion, photo mosaics on cars can be a fun thing to make.
