Amazingly M. Night Shyamalan showed new level of boringness as this movie was a masterpiece of dullness, its surprising though to see the Smiths in such type of third party second hand low budget movies, I’m still thinking how did he manage to convince The Fresh Prince to act for him after his chain of success appearances lately which i believe this will be the only way of earning, I’m sure the smiths have their reasons for that ( i hope ).

P.S : Big N showed new levels of enjoyment that he went to see it a second time in the afternoon ;)

The Motorola Flipout

5 May 2011  3 Comments

I’ve been getting my hands on a lot of phones lately, especially that my phones have been with me for a while now. iPhone 4 9 months+, Nexus One 1 year+, and the Blackberry Curve coming close to 2 years now.

I really love my Blackberry Curve but I have been looking to replace it for a while now. I don’t love the my Blackberry because of the BBM and Blackberry centric services, No. I love it because of its build, battery life and most importantly the physical keyboard.

I’m not looking for any keyboard, I love the vertical keyboard design. there isn’t much that is competing in that space at the moment so when I saw the Flipout I had to give it a try.

Keeping in mind that the primary use of this phone will be messaging, tweeting, checking facebook status and the occasional calling, it didn’t need to have the latest hardware.

The phone itself is small, it has a low-res 320 x 240 2.8″ screen/ 600MHz Cortex-A8 CPU 512MB of RAM a 7.2 HSDPA connectivity and a 3MP camera.

The phone comes with the Eclair version of Android (v2.1). And with the widget option that the Android OS has, it makes it even more practical. I just have the widgets of my social networks on 2 of my home screens. also, the notification system of the Android OS is the best on any mobile platform.

With all of that, to bad that the Motorola Flipout won’t be my Blackberry replacement for one very important reason. It doesn’t read arabic text. that is a major factor for me. And with the announcement of the new Blackberry 9900 I might give RIM one more chance when they release their new phones.

The Motorola Flipout can be found online for 65KD including delivery. [Link]

Workspace Upgrade: Speakers

5 Mar 2011  3 Comments

Last weekend I went to “Avenues Mall” for lunch and decided to pass by iCity and X-Cite to look for new desktop speakers. I was looking for a 2.0 instead of my 2.1 setup as I didn’t have the space for a subwoofer. I had my eyes on the “Bowers & Wilkins MM-1” but the problem was it had to be connected via USB to use its full potential.

I didn’t find anything good at iCity, but while in X-Cite, I saw Creative’s GigaWorks T40 speakers that I already read a lot of reviews about and was a decent candidate. What made me go with the purchase was the price. Amazon sell those speakers for $150, I found them at X-Cite in the mid KD30′s range (Can’t remember exactly but was a great price).

With the newfound space, I managed to setup my desk the way I wanted to. with just a few centimeters to spare.

It’s been almost 2 years since the original Hangover movie. And I still think it’s one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Part 2 is scheduled for release on May 26 of this year. Can’t wait.

Best Mac App Store Apps

12 Jan 2011  No Comments

The Mac App Store has been out for a few days and here is a list of what I think are good apps that everybody should get.

Twitter

(free):

The official Twitter app for mac is finally released along with the birth of the apps store. From the guys who brought you Tweetie comes a very decent Twitter app. [Link]

Alfred

(free):

A must for every power user. Its a replacement for mac’s built-in spotlight that is really versatile, powerful and configurable. [Link]

Aperture 3

($79.99):

If you do any photo enhancing on your Mac and haven’t bought either Apple’s Aperture or Adobe’s Lightroom3 yet, then buying Aperture is a no-brainer. Down from its regular retail price of $200. $80 is considered a steal. [Link]

iLife’11:

The price of the iLife package is $50, in the App Store the 3 main applications (iPhoto ’11, iMovie ’11 and GarageBand ’11) will cost you just $45 ($15 each). But you will miss out on iWeb and iDVD. Both applications that are included on the iLife ’11′s DVD but haven’t been updated for a few years now (since iLife ’09). [Link]

iWork ’09:

I would suggest that you stay away from iWork ’09 at the moment as iWork ’11 looks really close to release. But if you have to; Pages, Keynote and Numbers are all available for $20 each. Also cheaper than retail. [Link]

Pixelmator

($29.99):

Pixelmator is one of the best image editors you can find on the Mac. With version 2.0 exclusive to the App Store and cost 50% less than the previous versions. This is also a must have application. [Link]

Saso – Free Trade Zone

8 Nov 2010  2 Comments

Yesterday while driving back from work, I saw how beautiful the weather was and decided to go out for lunch. I’ve been emailed last week by Mr. Anwar Marafi telling me that their new Saso branch located in the Free Trade Zone has been open for a few months now and I thought that its the perfect time to give it a try.

I am familiar with Saso and have tried them before, so my expectations were high for the place. When we got there the sun was semi-cool and outdoor seating area was completely empty (which was good).

i ordered the Bubba Shrimps and they were just great and my main course was Beyond The Bun, which what might be the best chicken sandwich I had for a long long time. The Saso Sliders were also very good and my kids had the Penne Sisi, which is basically a pink pasta. My wife had the Chicken Cheddar Melt that she didn’t like and ended up eating part of my sandwich.

We Stayed there till almost sunset and the view was just breathtaking, this is the perfect time for eating outdoors the the place was quiet enough to enjoy it.
