“Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) – Nokia Oyj, the world’s biggest maker of mobile phones, had its first net loss since the company began reporting quarterly in 1996, hurt by costs related to a joint venture with  Siemens AG and weaker demand.

The net loss totaled 559 million euros ($834 million), after a profit of 1.09 billion euros a year earlier.”

Nokia also said that its smartphone market share dropped to 35% versus 41% in the previous quarter. 6% drop within the last 3 months is not normal at all.. its like 6% of the Nokia smartphones owners switched to another brand.

Yesterday, I recieved a text message from 6102009com saying: “This might interest you”… followed by a URL.

And Honestly, IT DID!

 The website is so simple as a design, but I still cannot figure out the purpose… I think it’s a kind of a puzzle game where a guy named “Fahad Nasser” has gone missing! The counter in the middle of page shows a countdown, and whenever it reaches zero new stuff will show on the desktop… maybe new leads and clues… CREATIVE! I’m starting to be addicted to this website… or game… or .. I don’t know! 

Oh yeah! by the way, the URL refers to tomorrows’ date, So I guess the next update would be something…

Nike+

Few months back I had the chance to visit R/GA, a digital media agency, to discuss some work projects. This is when I first learned about the “Nike+”, which was one of the many innovations and concepts introduced by this agency. Nike+ is simply syncing your Nike running shoe to your iPod to know the distance you actually ran, how many calories you’ve burned, and then to profile all that data to your Nikeplus.com account and compare it with other runners all around the globe.

Click here to find out what is Nike+ in detail, and how they came up with this great idea.

Today, I got my Nike+ kit, including:

I just got my new Zain eGO 21.6 mbps from a friend to test and review! AWESOME! what else can I say? The installation was extremely fast and took less than a minute to setup both the device and the dashboard software.

I told my friend that I’m going really wild with my testing criteria, his reaction was simply like this: “Heh.. Go ahead :) ”. I really took this as a challange and started YouTube streaming (opened 8 streams simultaneously) and the results were amazing! YouTube videos were running smoothly like nothing is happening without any interruptions… the e-GO itself was holding to an average of 2.4 MBPS during that YouTube “FLOOD”! (a max of 3.6 MBPS).

Checkout the image below!

And by the way! I got to keep the device for myself!

Thank you Zain;*
