I've recently bought my first iPhone 6S since my Nexus 6P broke down just a week ago. I have thought about buying an iPhone for a while, partially to satisfy my curiosity but also because I’ve owned a Macbook Pro for quite some time and Apple's ecosystem has always been in the back of my mind. I’ve had a few phones before, all of them being an Android, so I’m much more familiar with that operating system so keep that in mind while you're reading this post. But as I said, it was time to try an iPhone now and I thought it would be a good idea to write down my thoughts about the change as my impressions are fresh.
“Where are they?” was a question of a physicist named Enrico Fermi during a lunch break with his colleagues back in the 1950’s. He realized that given the size and age of the Universe, extraterrestrial civilizations should have already developed a sophisticated enough technology to concur other galaxies and ultimately made their presence know to us. The title of this blog post refers to the absence of alien life in the Universe, also known as the Fermi Paradox. If we were able to answer his question, it would give us some information about the fate for intelligent life in the Universe. That’s important for us because we humans are, believe it or not, included in the spectra of intelligent life.
It's not very surprising that my first blog post will be about Bitcoin. If you know me you've probably heard me talk about it at some occasion. The thing is though, I find it really hard to explain Bitcoin "on the go". But in this post I will try to give you a brief introduction and then talk a little bit about the potential of Bitcoin as a currency. Even if Bitcoin is extremely technical I will not focus on that aspect in this post, that's for another time.
