Google’s Non-event Event

by Mohd in Technology

On Monday google announced their latest Nexus flagship devices of course it went silently coz and most of the Tech experts at least who claims to be didnt tweet about or even post about it coz mainly they are just iPhone experts who are just looking for some attention.

Any how back to the Nexus, its the first time LG is given a chance to manufacture the Nexus a flagship device that carries a huge responsibility with it, its a chance for LG to either shine or burn down with flames. Ive always thought of LG as a branch of Samsung with all the similarities between their products its really hard to not notice not only in their mobile product lines but actually in everything they both manufacture TVs, Monitors, Refrigerants and home appliances. Im so excited about the newest update to Android 4.2 Jellybean and mainly i like to pure google experience no custom skins from HTC, Samsung, Motorola or even LG. Of course you Nexus 4 shares the same specs as the LG Optimus G but with an 8 MegaPixel camera & less storage space.

Price wise its so damn tempting the 8 GB is 300$ = 100 KD while the 16 GB is 350$ = 120 KD, i cant recommend the device yet but if you are looking for an Android device then you should definitely try the Nexus 4. Google’s event wasnt just about the Nexus 4 they also announced the Nexus 10 which is a tablet 10 inches manufactured by Samsung with a resolution of a whopping 2560 x 1600 & a 300 ppi the screen resolution would make the iPad Ritna display looks like something from the 80’s.

Apple & Android Fan boys

by Mohd in Kuwait, Technology

Ever since Apple became famous to some due to their iphone people have been taking sides and claiming they chose the best mobile available in the market.

People plz stop fighting and wasting your time on an endless war.  A simple fact that we

all should acknowledge both iOS &  Android have their Pros & Cons and whatever suits your needs will be the best thing for you.

Many are carrying an iPhone &  just using it for Whatsapp, twitter & of course phone calls while infact they could be very happy holding any other mobile device.
Same thing goes for Android,  many were just racing to get their hands on the Galaxy S3 and they are not even using 1/4 of its potentials.  Some even don’t know that it’s an Android.

To all the Fan boys out there plz before you start arguing that whatever brand is the best take a few days and use the counter product before you start bashing it.

Which Android Phone Should You Buy ?

by Mohd in Technology, Tips

Many are taking the Android plunge and shifting from their beloved iPhone and of course the first thing that pops into most people’s mind are the Galaxy S3 which in my opinion a great Android mobile but its not the only one out there and that is the beauty of Android, variety there is no one great phone for everyone each Android has its pros and cons and its up to you to choose the one that suits you best.

Also i got so fed up with people thinking that the only good mobile out there is the Galaxy S3 & 90% of people claiming this dont even know what Android is or even iOS is, its a the ugly truth but we all know that 70% of people carrying iPhones for the past 3 years only use Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook and SMS and the worst of all that they didnt even have an Apple account on their iPhone, they just went to a mobile store and paid 5 KD to some guy to setup their phone for them (OMG I hate this type of people). Just a basic yet simple rule anyone should go with, if you dont know how to use something dont buy it & if you did then pleaaaaaaassssssssssseeeeeeeee spend some time to learn how it works, its all a trend here in K-Town ( its a waste of time trying to educate people ).

Now back to my main Android guide, if you are looking for a great Android mobile and you dont wanna spend alot of money then your first choice should be Samsung Galaxy S2, yes S2 not S3 continue reading to know why before you pass judgment. The Galaxy S2 is a dual core Android with a Super AMOLED PLUS display which is almost the same as the S3, thin profile, awesome camera and a good battery life, although it comes with Ginger Bread Android software still it is up-gradable to Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). Its the best Android mobile that wont burn a hole in your wallet for the price of 140 KD maybe less but last time i checked ( few weeks ago). Also a great dual core is the htc One S thats comes with Ice Cream Sandwich and a great build quality.


Some users are more into rooting  and playing around with their Android software and really wanna put their hands on the newest Android 4.1 or experience the stock ICS. If you are one of those then your best choice is Samasung Galaxy Nexus, it has a Pen-Tile display which in my opinion is a good display but of course not as great as the Galaxy S2, S3 or even the iPhone retina display. 5 Megapixle camera, dual core and a good battery life all for the price of 150 KD or maybe less. So basically the Nexus is designed for the geeks among us 😉

The Galaxy Note or as some may call it phablet ( phone + tablet), the weirdest idea of a mobile device ever & in a strange way people just fell in love with. The Note is a dual core  but as we all know has the biggest display on the market till now. If you like a big display to work with & enjoy using a stylus then you can never go wrong with the Note. Also some use the Note as a secondary device carrying it around as a tablet due to its size of course. Price wise its a great deal for a 100 KD in some stores but if you are not in a hurry i would wait a bit before buying the Note coz Samsung is gonna announce the Galaxy Note 2 in the upcoming weeks ( dont say i didnt warn you :p ).

Now for the ones who want to hold a beast in their hands the Quad core Android phone both phone are sold for the same price a 190 KD, The Samsung Galaxy S3 ( of course every one know s that ) and the htc One X. A big awesome display 4.7 for the htc & 4.8 for the Samsung S3, both beats are hosting a 1 GB of RAM, battery wise both are the same dont worry about the 1800mAh or 2100 mAh you will end up charging it twice a day if you are a heavy to medium user. The main selling point for the Galaxy S3 is the expandable memory slot (16 GB builtin memory + memory slot) and the ability to switch the battery. The htc One X main selling point are Beats audio equalizer which comes built in for music lovers and the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor which is dedicated to better gaming performance. The 2 beasts have an 8 Megapixle camera and an awesome display although different display technology yet both deliver great visuals.

Google Under Attack! Zerg Rush!

by Abdul-Aziz in Design, Fun, Games

Zerg rush is a simple game to kill time & compete with friends. If you have some few minutes to spare at work or you needed a stress reliefer, try typing the words “zerg rush” into Google from the search engine’s homepage. Then a swarm of Os will eat all the information on your webpage. You would defend your “base” by fighting back with your mouse clicks.

You need to click like crazy on all the colored bubbles (“O”) that fall and are eating the text of the page. The goal is to kill all these bubbles with your mouse before they destroy the whole page.

htc One X Thoughts

by Mohd in News, Technology

Yesterday htc have released their newest family member the One X. I’m not gonna review it or anything this post is just some random thought on what to expect & what could happen in the mobile market.


First of all just to get this out of the way it’s not an iPhone killer but it will sure dominate the android mobile devices. htc is not an easily company to compete with although for the past 2 years they have been fiddling around after the fall of Windows mobile OS & the unstableness of the first Android generation still they held their position in the mobile race. just a simple example the htc Sensation was one of best Android devices in the market but people ran towards Samsung coz of the brand name while in fact when it comes to smart phones htc is a much bigger name but unfortunately alot of people don’t know that.

Any way back to the One X sets the bar way high for Android devices with a quad core QUAD CORE processor an 8 Mpixl camera plus a Dr.Beats sound capabilities, this device should have been called the Beast not One X. If your a music fan it serves you needs, if you are more into photography it’s will amaze you plus a gigantic processor to keep things smooth & interactive.

If you are looking for an Android device or thinking to upgrade you Android my advice, don’t ever miss this One X & don’t let the name fool you htc is a huge company & I believe it’s gonna be the best selling Android phone after a while & might even take a good market share out of Apple (not much but still a good percentage).

The next big thing that have been swapping the the net & everyone is either talking about or became addicted to. Personally I believe that it’s not just a temporary hip, it’s gonna grow more and more strong & will compete with Google+, twitter and Facebook.

The idea behind the site is pretty simple hence the name states you just Pin what you find interesting & wanna share with friends or the whole wide world either a pic or just a video. Other users can like, comment or even RePin it to their profile (Share it with their friends).

The idea might seem familiar ehhhhhm google+ :p but they are doing it in a more stylish way than Google did. At a first glance you might not understand how it works but as soon as you start sharing you will get the hang of it. What’s really cool is the book mark they have which enables you to just share what you are browsing (pic, video, site) so easily without any kind of frustrating steps. In the begining pinterest was just a way to collect and save you site book marks in a stylish way but it evolved to become a sharing tool.
