The Internet? Bah!

22 Feb 2010  2 Comments

Then there’s cyberbusiness. We’re promised instant catalog shopping–just point and click for great deals. We’ll order airline tickets over the network, make restaurant reservations and negotiate sales contracts. Stores will become obselete. So how come my local mall does more business in an afternoon than the entire Internet handles in a month? Even if there were a trustworthy way to send money over the Internet–which there isn’t–the network is missing a most essential ingredient of capitalism: salespeople.

That’s just an excerpt of a Newsweek article written in 1995. Its an interesting read.

Registrations are open for what might be the web’s best bittorrent tracker. They usually open registration for brief moment. I was downloading stuff from there and for some reason I was signed out, and from there noticed that the registrations are open.

So hurry up an head over there.

Stupid Journalism – Kuwaiti Pregnant Women Are Safer in Kuwait

4 Feb 2010  3 Comments

Kuwait is Awesome

When I first saw the title of this article I got angry, first because I was thinking that is giving birth to a child in Kuwait that bad? second why did Kuwait got singled out for comparison for such a topic? do they still think that women here give birth in tents in the middle of the desert?

It seems that Mr. Robert Dominguez is just an idiot, he just made the title sound bad, he thought that California should have a much higher ranking than Kuwait (warzone) and Bosnia (another warzone) it just sounds cool. but in reality its a different story. As I did some research *cough* Google *cough* I found out that Kuwait is one of the safest places to give birth in since it has one of the lowest Maternal mortality ratios in the world.

Kuwait is safer than a lot of countries like: United Kingdom, United States, Germany, Norway, Finland, Italy…… and the list goes on.

So for all of the women that are planning to have their babies abroad saying that the hospitals in Kuwait are crap, relax you’re fine Enshalla :)

Yesterday we passed by Info Connect at the International Fair Ground to see what’s new. We weren’t expecting much from there except for some new DSL prices but we still had to wonder around checking stuff out before ManU/Arsenal – Egypt/Ghana games.

To our amazement we found a cleaning solution in an Tech/IT expo.

we ended up buying 3 of this AMAZING Kleaner :/

Also when walking around we noticed an unreleased Android mobile device on display in a protected glass case.

DSC04418

Yes it is the SonyEricsson’s upcoming X10. it will be the company’s first android device that should be available as early as next month.

Zidaneoo was also looking for a new laptop. So, we had a quick look around and saw an i7 and an i5 HP laptops that had a very good price. cant remember the exact pricing and specs. but I should have the up soon.

We took our time there wich made us miss both game’s kick-off. and when we got to Showtime’s booth i saw this.

DSC04468

Of course they were watching the Egypt game.

And when it was time to leave, it was raining and we were greeted with a lightnings show.

So, not much to say about the Expo. With the exception of semi-good ADSL prices.

Slide Screen – The Ultimate Home Screen

Slide Screen

I’ve been waiting for this app for a while now it it just got released recently. It can replace your current Android home screen with over flow of information making the Android’s home screen much more informative than it already is (using the notification bar).

This app is highly recommended and its free (ad supported) and only available for Android OS.

$1000 App from Apple iTunes Store

18 Jan 2010  1 Comment

In 2008 Apple withdrew their “I Am Rich” app from the app store which sold 8 copies and only featured a red gem (shown below) on the iPhone’s home screen. They came under heavy abuse for even allowing an app of this sort into their App Store.

But now they are back with a real and working app that also costs $1000.  BarMax CA is a legitimate application which helps law students prepare for the BAR exam. Its price is allegedly justified because companies with the same styled programs sell it for between $3000-$4000. If you find yourself obliged to buy the app you can find it here.
