Hans Zimmer “Time” from the movie soundtrack of Inception. The song is capturing the atmosphere of the movie in way that can only be described as perfect. 

I discovered audiobooks for me

As I travel quite a bit every week, I needed a type of lean back entertainment. Watching TV-Shows is one or reading a book is another, as long as you sit down and do not need to pay attention to something. But while driving or walking I was either listening to music or podcasts. From podcasts the jump to audiobooks was not that far. I gave audible (from Amazon) a try and being so far pretty satisfied with it. Great selection of content, kind of subscription model (a monthly subscription allows you to download one title a month), and an app that (nearly) does the job. A little bit surprising is the fact that you cannot buy content through the mobile app but instead you need to go through the website. Anyhow, that just a minor break in the user experience. I currently enjoy listening to Tom Clancy while commuting to the office. 

Dubai JBR and Marina.

The Panorama photo function on the iPhone is awesome. Dubai marina impressions.
