  • Arthur Schopenhauer believed that solitude was an opportunity for introspection, imagination, and contemplation with yourself. Research shows that solitude of this kind allows us to be more creative. But, in a the busy world of today, do we ever let ourselves be solitary? Loneliness is different from solitude. For many people, being alone is a scary and dangerous place. That's why knowing the difference between solitude and loneliness is important.

  • Do you name your things? Me too. Meet my car - Roroe. When we christen cars, instruments, and the other important possessions in our lives, we interact with them differentlyโ€”and we may be more likely to appreciate them.

Privacy Friendly Apps - improved privacy protection on the smartphone

Privacy Friendly Apps - improved privacy protection on the smartphone

We use our smartphone for private conversations, store our contacts and organize our meetings with it. The access to all this sensitive data is handled with the so-called permissions. It means, for example, that each app that requires the smartphone camera needs to get the corresponding permission first. Many of the apps, especially free ones, however, request permissions that are not necessary for their functionality. As such, for example, a weather app might request access to oneโ€™s contact list, or a QR-code scanner can send private photos to some server.
