Over the past year it has changed its algorithm so that the organic reach of our Fanpage has strongly declined. That’s pretty frustrating, especially since… More.

In the pocket plus

Last week the new iPhone was introduced in the Netherlands. Since there’s not much to say about the iPhone 6, except that it now finally has the same size as the Samsung Galaxy, we were quite surprised that people were still standing in line.

How to ban cycle-apping?

A typical Dutch problem; many children (and adults, if we may include ourselves) use WhatsApp on their bicycle. As you can imagine this causes many accidents – in one out of 5 accidents, involving children, a smartphone was used. Since in the Netherlands cyclists are legally very well protected in traffic the government wants to… More.
