Yves “Jetman” Rossy Flies in Formation

28 Nov 2011  No Comments

I remember posting about Mr. Rossy last year when he tried out his new “Jet Propelled Wing” or jetpack and reaching speeds of 300 km/h in the descend.

The Jetman just attempted to fly in formation with a couple of L-39C planes for about 10 minutes and succeeded.

I want one.

Android’s Best Keyboard Just Got Better

28 Nov 2011  No Comments

SwiftKey X

One of the best features of Android is that if you don’t like anything in the OS you can easily change it. Android’s default keyboard is pretty good, but not as good as SwiftKey X. It is the best keyboard I have ever used on any platform. One of my main gripes with SwiftKey X was that it didn’t support arabic. But with the latest update They included an Arabic keyboard. So now I don’t have to switch to keyboard every time I want to type anything in Arabic.

SwiftKey X is currently on sale on the Android Market and is being sold for $2 (down from $4).

This video is pretty amazing. If you thing the beginning if the video is cool, watch around the 3 min mark when the speed gets a little bumped up and then watch just past the 5 min mark to watch TGM HOLiC, the world’s best Tetris player, play the game in freaking invisible mode.

Easy -> Medium -> Hard -> Asian

Yet Another PC Assembly

PC Parts

It has been more than 2 years since I last put together my own PC build. WIth the amount of gaming that I’m doing on the PC I thought I should upgrade to enjoy the games even more.

I initially wanted to upgrade my existing PC but the CPU upgrade path was out of the question. So I had to buy a new motherboard to accommodate the new processor. I should tryout an SSD as my boot/OS disk for better performance. And of course a new graphic card. I also wanted a new case with USB 3.0 support and more room inside and better cooling solutions. Wanted also to replace my Razer Mamba mouse, its a great mouse but after playing for a few hours non-stop and the battery runs out, you get screwed. So I decided to get the Cyborg R.A.T. 9 wireless mouse that come  with 2 batteries. After looking at all of that I was only short of RAM and a power supply and I would have a fully functioning PC. I got 16GB of RAM bundle for almost $100. but decided to stay with my power supply and get a new less powerful one for my old build.

Part List:

  • Intel CPU core i7 2700K 3.5Ghz (Link)
  • Asus Republic of Gamers Maximus IV Extreme-Z motherboard (Link)
  • EVGA GTX 570 superclocked GPU (Link)
  • 4x4GB (16GB) GSkill 1600 RAM (Link)
  • Samsung 830 series SSD 128GB (Link)
  • Cyborg R.A.T 9 wireless mouse (Link)
  • Thermaltake Chasar MK-I case (bought from Kuwait for KD85) (Link)

Now I just have to have time to put it all together.

The Kindle Fire

Kindle Fire

Yesterday the Aramex guy delivered a package that contained Amazon’s new Kindle Fire tablet. The design is very familiar if you ever seen a Blackberry Playbook. I think the 7″ screen size is just about right for a tablet, either for reading or watching video.

Kindle Fire vs Galaxy S2

When I first turned on the device and without putting in any information except for my wifi password. The device automatically synced to my account. It looks like that Amazon ships the devices with credentials pre-loaded.

The device lacks any google app like Gmail and the standard Android Market. But Amazon’s android store has a good selection of apps.

Silk Browser in Kuwwait

Also worth mentioning that the Kindle Fire’s web browser (Amazon Silk Browser) routes traffic via amazon servers. That bypasses the local blocking methods used to block websites. So getting onto Collage Humor’s webpage was easy, but I had a difficulty playing back videos.

The Kindle Fire costs around KD60, too bad its you have to have a US based credit card to actually start using the app store or a proxy to use the vide service. It looks like a very good tablet to playback youtube videos and some casual gaming for my kids.

Algeria vs Algeria

16 Nov 2011  2 Comments

The Algerian first football team was supposed to play Cameroon in a friendly yesterday but the Cameroonian team couldn’t make it. The Algerian football federation decided to play the first team against the reserves.

In the the first half, the first team was a head with a goal but that soon changed in the second half when the reserves scored 4 goals to win the match 4-1.

Will that make the coach change the reserves to be the first team?
