We redesigned (a bit)

Tonight we rolled out some design changes for our wordpress layout.
Our new layout is more image heavy thanks to the broader header images and looks a lot nicer on big screens. Furthermore we improved the navigation to make it more readable and to fit better into our layout.
We hope you like this.

We mourn: Steve Jobs has passed away

We just heard that Steve Jobs, co-founder and longtime CEO of Apple has passed away. We mourn the loss of one of the true visionaries of our time with a quote by himself speaking to college graduates in 2005, which we think fits all areas of life:

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

Neowin has a very nice live updating compilation of reactions from all over the net including some nice pictures and tweets.

Launch of Gongfu Brother

Hot PotLayout and code of our blog are finally done. We also had some issues with our domain but now we are ready to go.

Puja and Fred celebrated together in Cologne with some fine chinese food. We had 火锅 (Hot Pot) at the “Bruce Lee” restaurant with some good friends and gongfu brothers. There were tons of shrimps, corncobs that remained uneaten and lots of ice cream … nom nom

Unfortunately there was no reunion of all thre gongfu brothers but we hope to meet for some training soon.
