Yesterday i got invited by Alzanki Enterprises & Cinescape to an exclusive screening for one of most anticipated movies in 2013. Ill keep this review simple but before I start I must mention that I was sitting near a popcorn chewing machine. I have never heard anyone chew so loudly in the movie theater not to mention laughing for no apparent reason, so I would like to send my regards to the chewing machine and thank him for the annoying sound effects during the movie.
Now back to the movie, its basically an assembly line of cut scenes of some of the best moments in the life of Steve Jobs without any depth, and without significance. Most people will be lost, there is not much continuity, and you are left at the end wondering why you came to the movie. You didn’t learn anything new about Jobs or even followed his life path, you are not sure what the point was, and yet you spent two painful hours trying to get something out of this movie. The soundtrack used in the movie seemed like a Country/Rock genre which in my opinion has nothing to do with the life nor the area Jobs lived in.
The movie ended so abruptly that you feel that the director ran out of film or exceeded the time limit he had. Personally I dont recommend anyone going to JOBS its a total disappointment to all the Apple fans, Movie lover, and even Apple haters.

What do you think ????
Today mark the 2nd of August, Its the 23rd memorial of the Iraqi barbarian invasion to kuwait. Speaking upon myself & many Kuwaitis, we would like to declare that: we didn’t & will never forget nor forgive!

لم و لن ننسى
Its been along time since my last post and there is no excuse I was so busy at work lately and took a vacation not to mention my laziness but something happened that triggered my train of thoughts and pushed me to start writing again.
Yesterday I casually passed by a fast food restaurant, McDonalds to be exact and while I was there I noticed this cute little girl that her smile captured my heart coming in the restaurant with her 2 brothers & sister followed by the maid (of course no Kuwaiti child nowadays doesnt have a couple of maids following him) and their father. The oldest kid among them maybe 7 years old (Im only assuming that they are siblings and they are with their father) the father (as i assumed) ordered some junk food for the kids and while I was waiting for my order to finish suddenly I watched the father took off in his car leaving those kids alone with the maid. I thought to myself maybe he had to buy some stuff quickly from the Co-op or the pharmacy and he will come back for his kids, but the kids were sitting on a table eating with the maid so maybe he (The father) did not order for himself. Any way I took my order and went on my way to hang out with the guys in Gahwa which is by the way 15 minute drive without traffic and guess who I see sitting in the table next to my friends ?????
Yup its the Father of those 4 Kids, to my shock I couldnt resist starring at him even had a crazy thought that the guy sitting in that table is his twin but my logic kicked in and remembered his clothes so I became so sure that he is who I just saw 15 minutes ago.
I kept on wondering what the hell is this guys doing ? could there be a logical explanation to what I just saw or maybe someone was gonna pick those kids up !!!!
Although Im single and have no experience in parenting but Ive always felt that feeding your kids junk food is like feeding them small doses of poison and at the end we wounder why the hell we have a high rate of child’s obesity in Kuwait, smart community I know.
Anyway back to my story, I spent almost 3 hours with my friends and that guy was still sitting, one of my friends wanted to go get dinner from McDonalds. It was like a hidden invite for me to join him to answer that burning question I had going on my mind. We went to the same McDonalds, deep inside I was wishing those kids were gone by now and I overreacted upon something I dont understand but as we all know not all wishes come true. I saw the same 4 kids sitting around the same table & youngest girl who her smile captured my heart were resting her head on the table almost sleeping with their maid bored to hell not to mention the amount of junk food that went into their system.
What the hell is happening to the world…..correction to Kuwait ?
Am I overacting cause i dont know anything about the stress parents suffer from everyday ?
Does that stress give the parents the right to ditch their kids and go have fun alone ?
Some times I think that some people dont deserve to have kids since they lack the responsibility to care and provide for them.
Im throwing my story out there for all of you to share your thoughts on that matter, please correct me if Im wrong does that seem normal to you or acceptable throwing your kids at a place with the maid and you go hang out with friends ??????
Many have been taking the plunge into buying the Samsung Galaxy S4 without knowing some basic information about the device they are paying for. The Galaxy S4 comes in 3 different models, the Quad core model which come in 3G or LTE & the Octa Core model.
I asked a representative working in Samsung Al-Babtain about the available models here in Kuwait & most of the available models here are the Quad Core ones while the Octa ( 8 Core) model is gonna be available within a month or 2 at most.
How to distinguish between each model ?
The Quad Core 3G is Samsung I9500 Galaxy S4
while is the Quad core LTE is Samsung I9505 Galaxy S4
The Octa Core (8 core) model Samsung I9502 Galaxy S4
You should know which model you are getting before spending your money on something you probably dont want especially is you already own a Galaxy S3 you dont should not upgrade to the galaxy S4 unless you get the Octa Core model.
I don’t really see to where this country is going! “People” we’ve become Dumb, dependent & so annoying. YES the picture that were spreading yesterday about the new traffic laws is FAKE, note point #7 a “JORDANIAN Car” so someone with a below basic english language “he thought the word Jordanian is a verb.” & a lot of free time edited the picture & swapped the currency and all.
An UGLY fact to highlight is that the host site of this picture is a STUPID, DULL & OUTDATED looks like “Official
Governmental” site called ; Q8hosp.info, i actually don’t know which is more annoying that the fact they posted this fake news in the first place or that they still have it live on their site, exactly at the middle of this page –> Here
Technology is a bliss BUT not for everyone
How do you usually pay your mobile bills & Network’s provider subscribtions ?
Do you waste your time going through different websites just to find a certain product & compare each one ?
Do you own a small business & couldn’t find an online payment method suitable for your customers ?
Im glad to announce that a new era for mobile payment has arrived. A new way to get away from all the annoyance mentioned above. We live in a mobile world where more than 35% of our time (according to some study) is spent using our mobiles & PCs and one of the most annoying things to do is sell & buy stuff online mainly because most of the local services don’t provide online payment through their websites, or if the do some are not user or mobile friendly, well thats all gonna change with TAP.
Last week we had a chance to meet Ali Abu-Alhasan One of the master minds behind Tap, to get a preview of this new service that I believe gonna be a big hit in Kuwait. Aziz & I burned Ali with our questions and concerns & he answered all our question professionally & honesty. We are really proud of those awesome Kuwaiti developers behind Tap.
Tap is a web app that enables you to buy, pay your bills and sell your products/services online without the need to go to the official website of the seller. Whats really interesting about Tap is the ability to create your business/personal profile and start selling your products within minutes without the need to worry about security, all small businesses gonna benefit from this service and you the cunsumer are the beneficiary, paying your bills, subscriptions, buying stuff and browsing through various products while enjoying your coffee or being in your comfort zone.
Check the demo above and be amazed.
Tap is basically a web app which is much better in my personal opinion than a mobile app, you just log into it from you browser no matter what mobile you are using (iphone, Android, Blackberry) and thats the main advantage of a web app, just open your browser and you are browsing through an app-like interface. Tap will official launch on May 6th but the site is live now for you to preview.
