A New Sign For The Upcoming 3G iPhone

11 05 2008

Posted By Mishary.

Today i was checking Apple store, both the 8GB and 16GB models are “Currently Unavailable”. There’s no indication of whether this is merely a case of stock mis-management or a sign that a new iPhone is fast approaching. Hope this is a new indication of the new 3G iPhone Bs still im in love with my Curve 😛

My Curve Arrived

2 05 2008

Posted By Mishary.

Finally my Blackberry 8320 arrived! I received it today from USWS (BTW They SUCK! from the time they moved to their new location everything got messed up!) Before i got it, I went to Zain and subscribed with them, It costs KD14 for local usage with 1 GB download, if you exceed it you’ll be charged 2 fils for each MegaByte, which means every GB will cost you KD2). The international package is 28kd a month.

Whats comes in the box:

  • Blackberry 8320.
  • USB cable.
  • Charger.
  • Hands free.
  • CD & manuals.

I ordered a charging pod which looks so sexy! Its coated with chrome, I really love it!

Just for the record, I bought mine for only KD125 and ZAIN are selling the older model of this BB the one without wifi for KD238 and its out of stock now. What a rip off! I’ve also installed the arabic fonts and now I’m able to read Arabic messages and websites.

over all i’m giving it 4.5/5 (due to its perfect functions!). It keeps you busy all the time 😛





Amazon TextBuyIt Enable SMS Shopping

Amazon today introduced TextBuyIt, a new service that lets you use text messages to find and buy products sold on Amazon.com. Simply send a text message to “AMAZON” (262966) with the name of the product, search term or a UPC or ISBN code, and Amazon replies with the product or products that match the search, along with prices. To buy an item, customers simply reply to the text message by entering the unique single digit number next to the item they want. Customers will then receive a short phone call from Amazon with the final details of their order and asking them to confirm or cancel the purchase.When customers choose to purchase something for the first time using TextBuyIt, they will be asked for their e-mail address and shipping ZIP code they use for their Amazon.com account. With this information, Amazon uses customers’ default settings for payment method, shipping address and shipping speed, including 2-Day shipping for Amazon Prime members. (I’m Still unsure whether international orders are accepted or not).

  • Installation CD.

    I thought it would fit nicely on top of my Mac Mini, but turned out its a lot wider & thinner. but it looks sexy! 😛

    Straight to the point

    Pros:

    • wireless access 24/7 to your storage people! this is soo cool! Im backing up my mac & vista wirelessly!
    • i connected it with my Zain router, so now it acts as my storage PLUS internet. The fact that its Wireless N is making it a very good access point.
    • Its Sexy! its an apple product! yes im considering apple a plus!

      Cons:

      • Syncing. It takes ages to sync wirelessly. backing up my MBP took around 8-10 Hours.

        The 500GB costs KD80 & the 1TB costs KD133.

        I give it a 4 Out of 5.

Review: Linksys iPhone

17 03 2008

Posted By Mishary.

Since i got married my internet shopping habbit increased by 400%. Me and my wife order from everything from socks to earrings! Kel shay kel shay! Walah walahnaa 3alla ghorfat el tabdeeel bel ma7alat! So we faced a problem in the past 1.5 year that whenever any site asks us to contact them by phone (and most of them provice 1-800-xxx-xxxx contact number) the problem with these numbers is that you can’t call them from outside the US. So the ONLY solution is Skype, Yes from skype you can call 1-800 even if you are out side the US.

So i went directly to Amazon and ordered Linksys iPhone.

Whats in the Box:

  • Base station.
  • iPhone head set.
  • 2 chargers “1 for the head set and one for base station”.
  • Ethernet cable.
  • Manual.
  • Head set battery.
  • Land line cable.

Now let me go through their Pros and Cons:

Pros.

  • It capable of holding the land line and Skype simultaneously.
  • The head set base is separated from the base station.
  • NOW i can call Apple and Amazon by simple touches! “walla fashla takhayelaw aloo gowa amazon!!!” 😛 .

Cons.

  • Low quality build material.
  • The two chargers designed for the US electricity, So you need an adapter to run them in Kuwait.

Final Score 3 out 5 “Due to low build quality & lack of multi voltage chargers.
Thanks to the biggest skype fan, 9K2HN, for telling me about it.





I Can’t Talk

I’m sick again. Not more than a month ago I was sick with inflamed tonsils (lowaz), fever and a flu. and now, its all back again with a vengeance.

I’m not answering my phone since yesterday coz i’m having difficulty speaking. so I’ve been sending sms’s after each miscall saying “i can’t talk coz i’m sick and my tonsils (bal3eemy warma) are inflamed at the moment. we talk later”

As weird as it may sound, i find whoever calls me after reading that sms is weirder! I mean, I told you I can’t answer! why are you calling me back?? what should I do to get through to you ❓

I know! I should either come after you (when I get better inshallah) and hunt you down OR I pray that a wall falls and You just happen to be under it. 👿
