The guys over at 1minime are making me a small sculpture and I’m really excited to see the final results. So far all I received were the photos above showing the carving of the sculpture is complete, the face looks scary right now because the eye-balls are dark. Once it’s complete I’ll post all the details.
I lost count on who was the last bank that bragged about being the best bank. Do people even fall for those anymore? Banks make other banks look foolish when they all say they’re the best. I think it’s time to amend marketing strategies; less about being the best bank, more about having the best services.
This law has supposedly been slammed, then it got accepted by the Council of Medical Zones. The law will be practiced at Jahrah public hospitals for a trail of 6 months before being applied in all public hospitals. This won’t be taken lightly by 2.6 million foreigners living in Kuwait.[Source]
Unless it’s an emergency, expats can no longer visit public hospitals during the morning. It has been reported that staff members will also be segregated by nationality, meaning at most times expats will be treated by expats and Kuwaitis will be treated by Kuwaitis.
“Administrative and psychological advisor Iman Al-Bedah said this proposal is “dangerous at all levels”, adding that it “will bring discrimination not between patients, but between workers themselves.”
Back in 2011 I posted about the guy on the left, explained how some people were really overdoing it with low waist jeans. Well apparently it progressed to lower jeans. A guy posted on Reddit the guy on the right, I would love to see him walk, better yet run. By 2015 they’ll be walking dragging their jeans behind.
I must say I’m going to be kinda disappointed if this is all they’re going to announce. I’m hoping today will bring more announcements and I’m going to update this post if they announce more stuff. I hope they’re not thinking crushing the market means laying back and less innovation.
To start of, Kudos to Android for hitting the 900 million active Android devices, not too far from the 1 billion mark which equates to almost 12% of the planets population (if every person had 1 Android device from 900 million). I like that they’re investing into the education of kids with Google Play for Education. Google finally launched Google Play game services and unlike other competitors their service is cross-platform, it will be pretty cool to play against friends that use an iPhone or a BlackBerry. People that know me know I’m not a fan of TouchWiz and what he’s holding up there is a game-changer for me. I loved the Galaxy S4′s beast hardware specs but I didn’t want TouchWiz nor did I want to wait months for an update. So Google announcing a Samsung Galaxy S4 for KD ~185 with stock android (aka vanilla android) is a big plus for me. I might grab one unless Motorola comes out with something impressive.
I was walking around Sultan Center Sharq when I spotted 2 staff members putting a whole bunch of fruits back in their boxes after they fell on the floor. I told them you can’t just put them back and sell them, they fell on the floor. His response ticked me off “عادي” which translates to “It’s okay”.
The least they could have done (which isn’t accepted by everyone) was to clean the fruits before repacking them to sell. They were hoping I didn’t make a scene and attract a few people passing by. I didn’t, I just wrote about it for thousands to read. It’s much harder to get away with things nowadays.
There’s actually a lot of drama behind this announcement. Two years ago BGR got information that BBM was going to be available on Android and iOS, the news went viral then BlackBerry CEO (now former CEO) explained how BlackBerry has no plans on releasing BBM on other mobile platforms.
Today on a more brighter day, BlackBerry decided they would go ahead with it. It’s very hard not to with cross-platform apps like Whatsapp and Skype having a huge market share, I don’t think BlackBerry had much of a choice. Well I’m happy they’re finally going ahead with it, should be released this summer.[Source]
I bought this wireless charger after it was recommended to me by a colleague, an intelligent wireless charger only available in Panasonic Japan. I fell in love with it on my first try, it detects where you landed your phone and a tiny robot sets itself right behind your phone, did a quick video below.
Keep in mind you have to have wireless charging technology built-in on your phone. Either that or your phone has a wireless charging cover.
