Configure Your Own Android Smartphone

This website has been around for a while now but still haven’t been updated ever since I first came across it last year. Great idea and is built on the concept of Android open-ness. But it seems that its hard to convert dreams into reality.


HTC is Bringing The Stylus Back To The Tablet

4 Apr 2011  No Comments

The new HTC Flyer looks like it will be bringing back the pen/stylus input back to the tablet the is scheduled for released later this month. The HTC Flyer has a single-core 1.5Ghz processor and  comes with android 2.3 but HTC promised a Honeycomb update “later this year”

I love the 7” size, but not sure what will the future hold for a tablet not following the rest of the bunch by having the dual-core Tegra 2 chip and Google’s new strict Android guidelines.

One question, WHY?!
First I thought it was a parody video but then I found a few reviews on youtube.

“Trash Talk”? this is how you market your product?

Blink Online Store

Just read this on ilSul6ana’s blog. I know Blink isn’t the first electronic online store in Kuwait but what made me post about it is their website interface is just too familiar.

I was in there store last month when I had my PC problem and saw -in my opinion- the best PC case ever created. The problem was it was the last piece and all scratched up. Also it costs 210KD :s


It’s All Good

About 2 weeks ago I posted about my PC and Windows Home Server both are out of commission. And I was taking my PC to Hawally that same day.

Well after fotor I took my PC to Hawally and the first 3 or 4 shops didn’t want to even touch my PC saying that they don’t have similar parts and so the wont even open the case. After they directed me to go to a certain shop. He told me to leave the PC and the installation CD’s with him and he’ll get back to me. I didn’t have the cd’s with me so I decided to take the PC back the next day with the discs. And also after removing any personal files I had on the PC.

After cleaning up one of the HDD’s I thought why wouldn’t I just try doing a clean installation on that drive to see if it works to just really make sure its a hardware and not a software issue. After installation everything worked just fine. The problem turned out to be with windows’s page file copying it self in 2 different locations.

Anyway everything is running smoothly now Thank god.

iPhone 3G + iOS4 = A Brick

29 Jul 2010  3 Comments

Ever since I upgraded my iPhone 3G to iOS4 it turned the phone into an unusable piece of hardware. I wasn’t using my iPhone that much ever since I got the Nexus One but now I cant even use it as an MP3 player. The phone is laggy, unresponsive and crashes frequently. I just cant wait for my iPhone 4 to arrive.

The video shows the iPhone 3G with the iOS4 running. The problem is I have it worse than what they are showing on the video.

USA vs Kuwait: Macbook Prices

23 May 2010  9 Comments

I just read on Frankom’s blog that the the new Macbook Pro’s are available in Electrozan. After reading the flyer I decided to do a little comparison.

The US prices below include NY sales tax and the free standard delivery charges, so its the final price you will have to pay.

You can also an extra KD30-KD60 if you order via Amazon to an address other than NYC. The problem with that is the same problem if you buy it from Electrozan. You wont be able to get the 15″ model in high resolution.

Apple’s New iPhone Revealed!!! *UPDATED*

19 Apr 2010  7 Comments


Gizmodo seems that they got there hands on a new iPhone (4G/HD) prototype and pimping it for all of us to see. and this is what they found:


What’s new

• Front-facing video chat camera
• Improved regular back-camera (the lens is quite noticeably larger than the iPhone 3GS)
• Camera flash
• Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM (like the iPad)
• Improved display. It’s unclear if it’s the 960×460 display thrown around before—it certainly looks like it, with the “Connect to iTunes” screen displaying much higher resolution than on a 3GS.
• What looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack
• Split buttons for volume
• Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic

What’s changed

• The back is entirely flat, made of either glass (more likely) or ceramic or shiny plastic in order for the cell signal to poke through. Tapping on the back makes a more hollow and higher pitched sound compared to tapping on the glass on the front/screen, but that could just be the orientation of components inside making for a different sound
• An aluminum border going completely around the outside
• Slightly smaller screen than the 3GS (but seemingly higher resolution)
• Everything is more squared off
• 3 grams heavier
• 16% Larger battery
• Internals components are shrunken, miniaturized and reduced to make room for the larger battery.

Full article here


Seems that Apple have contacted Gizmodo and asked for their device back, so I guess this seals the deal and confirms that this *IS* an Apple device. Final version or prototype? we have to wait and see.
