A law firm in Kuwait has come up with a great idea of making an instagram account and posting videos of legal questions. Things like when can a cop take you into custody and when can’t he. An issue they touched on was fake fingerprints which are used by many at work to fake attendance, I didn’t know it will get you fired and arrested.[Link]
This story is pretty funny, a foreigner dressed up in police uniform set up a one-man checkpoint near a shopping complex and stopped mainly foreigners for identity checks. His main objective was to impress the girl he loved, which I have no idea how. Passersbys found it fishy that a policeman was wearing summer clothing during winter and called the cops.
He was arrested for impersonating Kuwaiti police officers, I have no idea how he thought it would slip and he would finish his task unnoticed. I’m sure there are a lot more methods that are legal to impress someone you love.[Source]
I was approached by someone from GDG Kuwait who asked me if I was interested in checking out the Google Glass he had in a small black bag. Of course I said yes and started playing around with its features. What I really wanted to know was whether it was worth KD 450. The Google Glass screen is pretty big, it’s equivalent to a 25 inch high-definition screen.
No one can see what you see on the screen unless they really get up close. The way you take a video or photo is very impressive, you just ask it to take a photo “Okay Glass, take a picture”. If you need to take a photo is a quiet area you just wink. Glass has live step by step navigation which is great since you won’t be using any of your hands.
Google Glass runs on Android and already has a decent amount of apps available. The battery life was the only down side, it lasts an hour but because it’s only on when you give it a command or so then goes on stand-by it should give you a day worth of battery life.
I thought there was no way to physically navigate but there is, you swype your finger while touching Google Glass to navigate the menu or a gallery; that came in handy. I think it’s worth the money, just not right now. Wait for the final product.
During start up weekend they were offering Malabar Coffee, I never tried it previously and I call it super coffee because of its unique brewing technique. They use a slow filtering method but once the caffeine hits your system your eyes are wide open for a decent amount of hours. It was so strong I ended up rolling in bed for an hour. So I recommend having it before 3pm. To find where they currently have a booth you can check their [instagram account].
I guess this is what happens when you become successful too fast. Flappy Bird, the super addictive game which is hard play will be taken down in 10 hours by it’s developer because he can’t take it anymore, he wants his normal life back. Even though it’s estimated he’s making $50,000 ad revenue per day from the game.
The game is very popular in Kuwait right now and has been downloaded 10′s of millions of times worldwide. My recommendation is if you haven’t download the game, you should do so now because it might not see the light of day again. If you have an Android click [here], if you have an iOS click [here].
Update: As the developer promised, the app has been removed from Android and iOS stores. Although it seems to be back up on android again.
Many don’t put into account when buying a new phone how much actual internal memory the device carries. When a smartphone is advertised with 16GB internal memory, you never get 16GB. I mentioned when reviewing the LG G2 how you only get 10GB instead of 16GB which is why I bought the 32GB version. What I didn’t know was the Samsung S4 was even worse, you only got 8.5GB, that’s almost half of what was advertised.[Source]
I wrote about a talented Kuwaiti phographer earlier that has been trending on instagram. Many want to know how he goes about from start to end from photographing himself to using photoshop. In an interview posted yesterday by Majedphotos they give Bonmr an insanely large lens to work with.
Walkthrough starts at [9 minutes 57 seconds]
If you’re into photography I recommend you watch the whole thing because they also talk about general tips to aspiring photographers and what tools to get at least have a good beginners set. Bonmr emphasized that it’s not all about photoshop as the photoshoot itself plays a big role in making a fake image look real.
This post won’t appeal to girls but the majority of guys love zombie games. I was asked by Whoopas Enterprises if I would be interested in having a zombie version of myself and I said sure. I sent over my photos and told them how much I love cookies, sure enough there was a cookie monster next to my zombie.
This one is much more detailed in comparison to the previous one I got which looked more like Steve Jobs. The more detailed your photos are the more accurate they will get your zombie. The zombie statues are called The Bobbling Dead (since they’re bubbleheads) and can be ordered by clicking [here].
