On iOS there is GPX Tracker which simply records a GPX track and can overlay openstreetmap data while doing so.

The eagle as a symbol predates the nazis - a lot. The „Reichsadler“ has been used since 800 A.D. as in the region that is now Germany:

The Reichsadler, i. e. the German Imperial Eagle, originated from a proto-heraldic emblem that was believed to have been used by Charlemagne, the first Frankish ruler whom the Pope crowned as Holy Roman Emperor in AD 800, and derived ultimately from the Aquila, i. e. eagle standard, of the ancient Roman army.

Edit: of course the Nazis twisted this as well. To decide, if the eagle has to go, we need more details:

During Nazi rule, a stylised eagle combined with the Nazi swastika was made the national emblem (Hoheitszeichen) by order of Adolf Hitler in 1935.

Despite its medieval origin, the term "Reichsadler" in common English understanding is mostly associated with this specific Nazi-era version. The Nazi Party had used a very similar symbol for itself, called the Parteiadler ("Party's eagle"). These two insignia can be distinguished as the Reichsadler looks to its right shoulder whereas the Parteiadler looks to its left shoulder.

The five fingers of that post man don’t make the image any better.

Because if the military wants something, budgets are big. And they do not need to make money.

Making UX a part of the assessment is a smart move.

Why are US users so focused on iMessage? I have seen rejected date memes because the message bubble had the wrong color. There are tons of alternatives out there. Is this a status thing?

There were some questions lately about favorite software products. And I thought, I add mine.

I am in the process of migrating my wife’s PC to Linux. I like tinkering a bit, but am in a position where I am willing to pay money to have a good user experience and spend less time, because things „just work“. I bought Affinity Publisher recently after some testing, because it has a nice workflow to create print products like Christmas and birthday cards.

Software on my list is:

  • Steam and Games capable running on Linux
  • Only Office

I have been using Linux on and off from the first shipped CDs from Ubuntu. Nowadays I mainly use OS X, because my employer provides us with MacBooks I can use in private and I like the UNIX base and I do not have to tinker to get things to work.

I just set up an old Thinkpad for my kids to start their digital journey with Linux Mint and am considering switching my private stuff to a separate computer.

What I really love about OS X is the consistent usage of alt and the command keys. It basically follows the concept: „you want to do something, press Command + …“ and „you want an alternative character? Press alt + …“.

My experience is that Linux key usage was inspired by Windows at first and Windows did not have a Command key.

Would it be hard to get the same behavior as on OS X with a Linux system?

I like this one

It is a friendly recognizable chameleon and they did a good job with integrating the existing abstract logos.

From the Solo designs I loved the ones with the branch with different endings a lot. It had a warm touch to it, but was a little to filigrane for a logo.

There is actually a theory floating around, that people growing up in the 80ies-2000 were the most tech literate, because they had to tinker to get thinks to work. Want to play a game on DOS 6.2 and it did not work? Edit some system files for more memory. Today the technisch hidden behind false physics and got really well.

My son is nine. I got him a Kano (the old one with a raspberry pie as base) and he has to learn why we need to connect a display to the processing unit and connect peripherals to do things. His friends own a tablet, a smartphone and a gaming console. You cannot see behind the tech in those, if you don’t want to destroy them and explore hobbit works (on a basic level).

There was a meme in Germany during Chancellor Merkel's time in office. As soon as Merkel "expressed her utmost confidence" in someone, that person resigned shortly afterwards.

Are you aware, that 360 is a full circle? Opposite would be 180.
