The day I was banned from Whatsapp

Yesterday, my Jolla returned from a short stint with Jolla care. I unmounted my Palm Pre2 (which I used for the time my Jolla was not available) and began to set up my phone again – apps, Android support, accounts.

Auch wenn ich jedes mal heulen könnte, wenn ich mein Touchpad zur Hand nehme und wieder staune, wie innovativ […] Read More
