Just few hours ago, RIM has officially announced the release of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. As news confirmed before, the new OS provides an integrated email client with a unified inbox, integrates your social accounts with calendars and contacts, updated BlackBerry Bridge, and now it supports a range of “Android apps”!
Blog37.com was suspended for some reason, and by looking at my experience of dealing with web hosts I have thought that this will be a very long week… but you know what? this will be a positive post after all…
I logged to the admin panel trying to identify the suspension reasons, at the beginning I thought it was something related to financials since my host offers everything unlimited… “literally unlimited***”. Everything was fine, all amounts paid, all domains automatically and manually renewed. (*** having an unlimited account does not give you the right to abuse it.. be wise)
After a short chat with the customer care representative who offered me 4 options to solve my issue, I decided to contact the “Terms of Service” team via email… and guess what! I could swear that the maximum response time from this host was 10 minutes… replies were confident and straight to the point. The blog is now back, and I would really like to thank my host (Fastdomain.com) for this excellent service.. you have a loyal customer who’s not moving to any other host!
The last two weeks were so interesting, waiting for the official falshmob video to be released by Zain. Being in the Avenues mall when it first happened gave me the chance to take a full video, which by the way reached the top 10 trending videos on YouTube and passed 533,000 views (up to the date of this post).
That actually reminds me of what @KhalidAlzanki always says: “Content is King, Marketing is the Queen“, the content was unique (not the idea of the flashmob itself, but being the 1st in Kuwait is unique!), and the way it was marketed and pushed through social media made those tremendous statistics.
I’ll leave you to watch the two versions, the one I shot, and the official one released by Zain. Enjoy!
You may have read it allover the news, but it is NOT TRUE. Then what’s the deal? The deal is that MOC (Ministry of communications) have signed a contract with SA Mobily operator (Subsidiary of the UAE Etisalat) and to be linked via “cable”… providing a closer, and more reliable international services carrier other than those in Dubai carrying Kuwait’s international communications.
I’m sorry folks, so the answer to the post title is NO
As I usually do on monthly basis, I surf around blink.com.kw to check out when gadgets I would really need for my daily work and media storage. i came across this new toy, and it is a very good deal! Buffalo DriveStation 3.0TB – USB 3.0 (HD-LB.0TU3-EU) for 71 KD. The same item is available on Amazon.com for $350 (Equivalent to 95 KD)
I was lucky enough to pickup the last one :p I’ll review it once received.
