This post is about a quiz from “the labyrinth of German language” on Spiegel.de and thus not available in English.
Are you desperately looking for the face of Jesus, Mary or similar on a piece of toast to make lots of money from it on eBay? Why not use some help – a toast printer!
(Okay, that could be fraud. So: don’t use that, or instead sell it honestly – people who’d spend lots of money on such things either have a useless oddity museum or are nuts. And you don’t have to rip them off in addition to that.)
ComputerWorld. Review has 7 pictures (no, they just stole the pictures) From Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories who have more pictures and descriptions of their device.

…since color TV has been started in Germany – activated on Aug 25, 1967 at 10:57 by Willy Brandt on the IFA. Or rather by an engineer – two seconds before the big red button has been properly pushed down (and all that apparently three minutes earlier than originally planned)…
The ZDF has.
Computerworld published its “Top 10 Firefox extensions to avoid” (of which Computerwoche.de published its German version, naming it “…which no-one needs”(!), which I read first) – some of the criticism, in my opinion, rather questionable, some rather okay (the list numbers link to Computerworld’s article pages):
1. Fasterfox (prefetching of linked pages): I don’t like that that much either.
“If you really have a need for this kind of control, then you’re already using the extension and will continue to do so. But for the average Web surfer, constantly having to whitelist sites so that scripts can execute in order to give you a fully formed Web experience gets tedious very quickly.”
The German article skips the first sentence quoted above – a major point in my criticism of them.
“Is it worth the hassle? No. [...] Most typical Web surfers who install this extension remove it after the novelty wears off.”
Disagree. I wouldn’t want to miss it even if it takes 2 clicks to make some sites work.
And I’d like to know where your “statistics” are coming from…
