Zain/Novatel Wireless’s MiFi 2352

The gsm version of the MiFi got released last summer, and when i got back from the states I went to hawaly to see if I can find it. I did it was on sale for 85KD back then, I decided to wait for a subsidized version that would be cheaper.

Zain released their branded MiFi a while back, and I thought it would be a good deal until I contacted them and asked for the price. They sell it for KD85 without any subscription and no ties, and you can get it for KD30 if you sign a 1 year deal with the KD27 package.

After hearing that I went directly to hawaly to check the latest prices, I entered Qayrawan Complex and went to Cameo, asked for the price and they where selling it for KD70. I ended up getting it for KD68 without too much of a hassle.

It’s basically the same device except for the branding. The Zain rep I talked to told me that the device won’t work with the KD13.5 or any other subscription, which is a deal breaker for me, since I would only use it for work, and I only have edge coverage there.

So bottom line is, if you are already with Zain and have the KD27 subscription the getting the device for KD30 is a good deal. But if you aren’t in that category, then you are better of getting the unbranded from hawaly.

Airport Screening Procedures Leaked Online

9 Dec 2009  2 Comments

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) stupidly posted online their 93 page brochure on airport screening criteria. It included lists of items that did not require screening, as well as stating that during peak times security is lessened.

120809tap

The aforementioned passport-holders automatically targeted for secondary “selective” screening are, by the way, from Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia, Iraq, Yemen or Algeria.

Two thumbs up, one to the TSA, and one to the Cuban with the massive moustache in the retro photo above.
