Fifa 11 iPhone: Best Football Game On The iPhone

3 Oct 2010  3 Comments

I am not a huge iPhone gaming fan, I download games occasionally but I hardly ever play them. I really hate the onscreen control and really miss the physical buttons. But ever since I downloaded EA’s Fifa 11 for the iPhone a few days ago I changed my mind. It’s the only game I play now. It’s very well done with minimal controls. Of course your fingers block half the screen during gameplay and nothing still beats physical buttons but for the iPhone this is great. It also has commentary.

Fifa 11 for the iphone is $4.99 and its worth it in my opinion if you are a football fan.

Out With The Old, In With The New

29 Aug 2010  9 Comments

During the past couple of months I finished the process of upgrading my mobile bag. I upgraded from a 13″ MBP to a 15″ MBP with an i7 processor which i needed when I was in the States and was away from my desktop to do the heavy lifting. Also upgraded was the portable storage HDD, from a 500GB to a 1TB WD I’m not exactly sure how am I going to utilize this storage on the go but whatever.

Not pictured is the new iPhone 4 from an iPhone 3G that I had for a few weeks now and will do a post about my impressions so far. And also exchanged my 32GB wifi iPad with a 64GB WiFi/3G one. I don’t even know why I bought the 3G version as I’m using my beloved Nexus One as my mobile hotspot.

But is the process complete? with the imminent release of the new Blackberries and the all new Windows Phones, this hobby is getting really expensive.

After upgrading what I miss most is battery life, I usually have at least 5 hours per charge on my 13″ MBP but I’m lucky if I get 2:30 on my new 15″. same with the iPhone 4, cant see any trace of the new over-sized battery as my phone dies even quicker now.

I’ve previously posted about Abu Dhabi’s online Premier League subscription and how awesome it is. I just wanted to add that you can also watch any match on the go on your phone too, If you have an Android phone that is.

The pic above is of my Nexus One while I was watching last night’s Arsenal game. The video quality is excellent by the way the pic is just blurry.

Now Thats An Alarm Clock

I have a problem were I dismiss an alarm prematurely and go back to sleep, casing me to be late for work and appointments.

This is a great idea, would have to do some calculations before I can dismiss the alarm.

VIVA Annonces 4G Network in Kuwait

18 Aug 2010  7 Comments

We were invited to attend the VIVA’s “VIVA Speed transition Experience” press conference that was held yesterday in their Marina Mall branch at 9-ish PM yesterday.

The beginning of the press conference, they said “we told you in our last press conference that we are going to release something big in the coming weeks” I had no idea about the last press conference but got excited just because they were hyping it up for a few weeks now so it got to be something big. “We are proud to announce the first 4G network in Kuwait” and held up one of 2 4G modems they had at the conference.

After that they invited the attendees to to some hands-on testing and if anyone got any questions. All the reporters had questions and all the blogger were on top of the laptop to do some testing. There I had the pleasure to meet in person JMB from Blushberry, Salem and Mohammed from Q8BlackMarket and mr 360Dewan himself.

After fiddling around with the device and the laptop doing some speed tests that showed up to 70Mb Download speeds and up to 30 Mb upload speeds (those were the best result we’ve witness during the event.
VIVA will be the second telecom company to release an LTE network after Norway’s TeliaSonera. But after some googling it turns out that TeliaSonera is actually Swedish/Finnish . And after asking Mr. Najeeb Al-Awadi way LTE (Long Term Evolution) instead of WIMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) he said there are a number of reasons, LTE has much better theoretical download (360 Mbits/s) and upload speeds (80 Mbits/s) than WIMAX (144 Mbits/s Down and 30 Mbits/s up). The other reason that its backed up by most major carrier in the world. Unlike WIMAX which has its only operational WIMAX network in the US by Sprit Network (4th largest telco. in the States).

Also there are plans to upgrade the current generation of LTE networks to what is called LTE Advanced which has theoretical downlink speeds of 1 Gbits/s.

The expected release of the Kuwait’s first 4G network is Q4 2010. Mr. Al-Awadi said we are almost ready to release it just waiting for some paperwork to clear from the ministry.

I would like to thank Mrs. Hind Ahmad Al-Nahedh for the invite.

iPhone 4 Jailbreak is Here

2 Aug 2010  4 Comments

iPhone iOS 4 jailbreak for iPhone 3G,3GS and 4 has been released for your jailbreaking pleasure,. whats really cool about this jailbreak is that the hack is web based via exploiting the Safari browser and no extra downloading of software or even connecting your phone to a PC/Mac is required (although backing up is highly recommended). All you need to do is visit a website and everything is automatically is done for you. Jailbreaking my 3G went without a hitch and a sign of success is the appearance of a Cydia icon.

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.

The video above of the Darth Vader ad while the one below is the new Yoda ad.
