windOCD Update available - and it is a BIG one!

LogEngine Image

windOCD now supports unlimited display setups and work spaces and writing/supporting it was a nightmare…

LogEngine Image

You can either let windOCD create and pre-select display setups based on your currently attached displays or you can get a notification when your displays change and select your desired setup on your own.

This way you can even create multiple ‘work spaces’ for the same display setup in case you want to have your windows aligned and restored based on the current work-application-combination.

In addition – and as requested – you can now also add additional padding for windows. Of course this is only added when and where appropriate.

So, never say I wouldn’t listen :–)

windOCD for Multi-Display-Setups

LogEngine Image

I’m currently working on a new version of windOCD and it will come with support for Multi-Display-Setups.

This means you will able to align and arrange your windows on any display and you will be able to save default window positions for unlimited display setups so that you don’t have to align all your windows by hand all over again when switching the setup or work places.

LogEngine Image

In addition – and as requested – you will also be able to add custom padding between aligned and arranged windows.

So, never say I wouldn’t listen :–)

Currently I have to rewrite everything for this changes since Apple’s Accessibility API is really crude and no fun at all to work with – but since my beloved MenuAndDockless is doomed due to Apple’s recent changes in macOS Sierra I clearly have no choice…

How to ruin an otherwise damn good phone - or my OnePlus 3 Review

LogEngine Image

I don’t get it. No, seriously! I really don’t get it! Neither OnePlus nor, more importantly, all the high praise from all the so called ‘authorities’ on smartphones.

To be fair – AnandTech got it right.

The all new Flagship Killer from OnePlus is a damn good phone completely ruined by a shitty display; and by shitty, I’m being polite.

With an awesome build quality, it’s one of the rare phones nowadays that you actually want to hold in your hands; you just want to love it – but the moment you turn it on you immediately want to bang your head against the … well, the actual phone.

The display is terrible! And I’m not just talking about the resolution here.

They delivered a great phone with a good camera that allows you to save images in DNG format and it was all in vain because all you can use the display for is as a prime example of a shitty display, but not for assessing pictures and not at all for editing them.

Where do I begin? Let me put it this way: I’ve got 50-buck Chinese made phones lying around here that have a better display!

I tried to take pictures that don’t look like I deliberately ruined them, so you can see for yourself; this is the fair balanced I managed to accomplish:

LogEngine Image

It’s all washed out, blue shifted as hell, I have problems using the word ‘brightness’ when talking about it and the colors, well – I can’t use that word either.

Anyone that orders 10.000 business cards online for $4.99 would return them if the colors turned out that awful, and the moment you rotate it just two degrees to one side all you see is a blue-greenish blur.

So, why do all the reviews, reviewers, and websites rave on about the OnePlus 3 and only one single person – who then gets booed at – calls it how he sees it?

And that’s the important part. You have to see it. The moment you turn it on.

Does saving a couple of hundred bucks make people really that blind?

It’s such a shame. And I know for a fact that a much better display wouldn’t have cost OnePlus a single dime more – so why the hell did they go with this complete and utter failure of a display?

LogEngine Image

I guess they’ve settled, like the rest; just quicker and that’s unfortunate. Or wise, since people clearly don’t seem to care.

Well, I do. Unfortunately for me, I know; since it means I have to return it. And the quest for a really good phone continues…

I’d settle for the OnePlus 3 with the display form of the MI5 in a blink of an eye. That would be the perfect phone for me. I’d also take the iPhone 6S running Android, by the way :–)
