Not sure how long fidget spinners are going to be a thing, but Google just jumped ship with a small easter on their search results. If you goto Google, search for Spinner, a fidget spinner will automatically pop up, you can spin it too obviously but too bad it doesn’t have a timer, then there would be competition.
I passed by Quadra to buy a gaming chair for my cousin and little did I know, they finally opened their new much bigger store upstairs. So we went upstairs and were left in awe. PC Gamers really needed a hardcore gamers store in Kuwait for a long time and no stores really did it for me.
Other gaming stores would bring high-end graphic cards and motherboards in small quantities and once they sell out, which happens really quick, you have to wait for a while. This place however is the opposite, it’s packed with every gaming item you can think of.
They even have the latest gamer’s trend, the Pro Gamers Glasses. These glasses are supposedly designed to help increase optical stability, reduce eye strain and enhance visual detail for your long marathon gaming sessions. I’m still not buying into this gaming glasses thing but might get one.
Overall the place is pretty big, with a lot of items on display so that you can try them out before purchase. They also have some desktop rigs setup to show you how you can customize your set up. I bought a precision mousepad for a ridiculously expensive price and I lost it at home, which is upsetting me cause I’m never going to spend that much on a mousepad again (cough 13KD).

Super excited about this, preordered around two weeks ago and its like a drone from the future once you see all it’s features. You can control the drone without connecting it to your phone or even a remote, all you do is hand gestures and it will respond accordingly.
It’s like a drone for the majority of us who like taking the drone to trips for amazing shots and for some fun, not for hardcore drone flyers who want top-notch specs and stability. I really wished I had Spark on my recent forest trip to in Germany, would have been a blast.
My other favourite part about the DJI Spark that I haven’t seen in any other drone before are preset maneuvers called Quickshots. Basically you’re telling the drone to fly in a certain way without you having to guide it every step of the way. The video above explains the 4 preset Quickshots the drone has pre-installed.
My idea for this drone is to use it as video footage while doing reviews for the blog if need be, while also being a handy tool to use at work since I work with a lot of video editing. Best part is it fits my camera backpack and I bought it with an extra battery and it’s remote for more distance coverage.
The DJI Spark is to be officially released in 2 days. So I should be getting it in around 2 weeks? I ordered it with my Aramex address and I’m hoping me unbanning drones through Aramex last year still stands as it is today.
I have some serious trust issues when it comes Qibla Finder apps as I feel many of them are inaccurate, however, it comes as great news that Google’s Developers just released a Qibla Finder. Not only that, but it also uses augmented reality, so it will show exactly where the Qibla should be.
I tried it at the office, made sure GPS was on and it pointed at the couch which is where the Qibla is, much more convenient than other ways of finding the Qibla. Best part is you don’t need an app or any special requirements to do this, all you need is a phone with internet.
This scares me more than it should, me being a bald guy and everything. Those that followed me on snapchat laughed hard when I first heard the news on BBC Radio (video above). Bald Men are apparently decapitated for witchcraft rituals, two men have already been found dead by police. Guess Mozambique is definitely a country I won’t be visiting.[Source]
Sorry you had to scroll down so much, but I wanted everyone to see how much Zain wants me to get their Ramadan offer. I don’t know if it’s just me, keeping in mind that I’m unsubscribed from all Zain ads and promotions, yet I’m spammed with this. There’s a lot to like about Zain, this not being one of them.
This is my 3rd photography bag and hands down has been the best by far, it’s been designed so ergonomically in a practical way that makes popping a lens out half way through your photography session from a backpack a breeze. Big thanks to AAB World for the gift, something worth reviewing.
The backpack came in just in time for my trip to Germany where I knew I’d be visiting the forest and trying to see what I can photograph. The backpack is packed with features (pun unintended), one of my favourites being there’s a dedicated storage that fits any laptop that’s 15 inches or less.
This really came in handy at the airport, instead of opening the backpack every time and going through everything to pull out my laptop, I would just unzip the laptop zipper and get it out in no time.
In terms of quality built, if felt very sturdy. After coming back, the backpack looks as if I have just bought it. It was built with a place for everything in mind, and offers customization storage options from the inside which are explained into further detail on the video below.
It comes with a magnetic latch for both protection from theft and so that you never open it by mistake and drop something valuable. When it rained during the trip, another feature came to light, the backpack was actually waterproof so you never need to worry about it when it’s raining, you should however, worry about your equipment when it’s heavily raining.
This is the first backpack I own with on-body access, where you don’t have to stop, put the bag down and open it up, get the stuff you need, change the lens, close it again and carry it. You just slide it while you’re still carrying it, unzip get the stuff and you’re done. It makes a big difference in speed and practically.
I could have done a video showcasing the details, but this guy does a great at showing everything there is to know about the Peak Design Every Day Backpack. Keeping in mind if you like the backpack but feel it’s a bit too small there’s also a 30L version.
You can purchase the Peak Design Everyday Backpack 20L or 30L version through AAB’s website [here].
Bonus: Here are some of the photos I took during my forest adventures in Germany
