Bad Advertising

by Mohd in Bla Bla Bla, Tips

When it comes to advertising we all know that the old traditional way of tv commercials and newspaper adds are almost extinct.

Companies whether big or small, new or old are trying to find new ways to be closer to their customers. Twitter, FaceBook, Google+ , Instagram and many other social sites. We can now find them on almost all the social network we can imagine. Don’t get me wrong this is a good thing to communicate more with you product/service provider but some companies are doing it all wrong.

They make an account lets say on twitter & they just keep sending you a mention tweet about their products and so you would have to read the tweet & if you reply to them they simply don’t answer coz they are busy spamming everyone else sending them the same tweet in their mentions.

cough cough****الجو حلو يبيله فطاير زعتر ****   cough, come on give me a break cant you even find a better tweet  😛

Now let’s go to Instagram, one of the most annoying things you can find in your feed that a company you are following uploads a mass amount of pics all in the same time filling your feed with their pics which by the way 90% of them are useless coz they look into quantity not quality. I even commented on a pic from a certain company (restaurant/cafe)  that they are spamming not posting & I actually found out that they don’t even reply to comments from followers, cough cough ****Baza cafe *** cough 😛

They should get some marketing consultant to advise them on how to make good useful posts, tweets or pics. If  they even dont wanna hire some one a simple thing that they can do is caring about their customers & taking their feed back into consideration & replying to every comment or tweet that get sent to them. They are actually not marketing but annoying their customer by spamming their timeline.
Some companies do this social connecting in a right way & end up satisfying their customer & my post is only meant


to give those spammers a simple advice from a normal user’s prospective.


Anyone out there is getting spammed ?

KeyBoard For My iPad

by Mohd in Technology, Tips

Another solution to fully satisfy your iPad needs and keep you more productive 🙂

A friend of mine asked me about a suitable keyboard & a case for his iPad coz most of the day he is abusing it in work meeting & throwing it in the car for hours due to his work conditions. In case you are facing the same issues & wanted something better than the on screen keyboard i would highly advise you to go and buy Adonit Writer 2.

If your in a meeting it will look as a thin laptop while in real its only an iPad attached to a cover. It adds to you productivity coz you wont have to hold the ipad in hands. Im even ended up getting one myself although i prefer on screen keyboards but it will be more comfortable for me when using it on a desk.


You can order it from HERE its only 99$

Failure & Success

by Mohd in Bla Bla Bla, Tips

Do you believe that success is the opposite of failure ?

I guess most of us really do believe that if you succeed in achieving a certain goal then you are a successful person while if you don’t then you are a failure. One thing is for sure that the past sentences you have read are totally wrong & if you believe those past sentences you must continue reading. In my personal opinion in order to succeed you gotta taste the bitterness of failure. Think of it for a second all the successful scientists, public figures, celebrities failed countless times before they discover a remarkable thing that engraved their names in the history of mankind & I won’t bore you with stories but you might search it for yourself.

Failure is making mistakes & you can not evaluate a certain situation unless you have results so if you don’t get the desired result you try a different approach & again you evaluate the result till you achieve what you are seeking, simple as that. Now comes my point, life is a about experimenting & taking risks. Some just play it so safe avoiding every big challenge that they might face, going with what they know & not even thinking of taking a simple risk or learning something new coz they fear failure. They end up living a boring life not achieving anything ( unless they have WAS6A of course :p ) & wasting the amount of oxygen we have on planet earth :p .

Rule of thumb, Mistakes are inevitable. No matter how hard you try avoiding it you will end up falling & don’t look at it in a bad way just embrace your failure & mistakes coz they are the first steps to success. Live your life, discover, have fun, take risks, but at the end of the day & before you put you head to sleep evaluate your actions to wake up to a new day were your success is waiting for you.

At the end I would just like to Thank you the ones who believes that failure is the first step to success & for those who still don’t plz read the post again.

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. To know more about how to use it wach the 2 videos below & follow us on pinterest if you have an account by clicking the Follow Me icon below or on the right side.

I Hate The New iPad

by Mohd in Technology, Tips

You won’t imagine the amount of question & conversations I’ve been through about the new iPad, it’s like everyone is talking about it & thinking of buying it & some already done that even the waiter in my Gahwa & my barber asked me about the new iPad or the iPad 3 or whatever Apple is calling it.

Some of our readers even asked why didn’t I post about its release or any news about it. Well the answer is simple I absolutely hate it, don’t get my wrong I’m an Apple fan & this post your reading right now is done on an iPad 2. I’ll try to explain why but plz bare with me & set a side you emotions & Apple addiction in order to understand my point of view which probably most of you won’t agree with me.

When it fist got announced my feeling towards it could not be described, disappointed, shocked or mad are just small word to explain my thoughts towards it, it does brings some improvements to the iPad 2 still it’s not revolutionary or even close to it by any mean. The new iPad hosts a faster processor & a much improved screen compared to its predecesso, it didn’t deserve a huge event to discuss its release. Remember the amount of improvemnts between the original & iPad 2 ?

On the contrary Apple made some huge improvements on their laptop (MacBook) lines & they didn’t host an event for it just a simple update on their site & that happened a couple of times though the past couple of years.

Before you jump into the comment section & writing about the new 5 mega pixel camera & how awesome it is or that I forgot to mention it just look at this pic below & my train of thoughts will continue below it.

Plz plz plz plz & again plz don’t be that guy or girl taking pics with your iPad coz it looks so stupid use your mobile phone for GOD’s sake & save yourself from this imbaresment. Have you even encountered someone holding their iPad high to take a pic ?

Have you noticed that they look stupid ?

Any cheap mobile device would have a better camera than the iPad. So why the hell would someone use a tablet to take photos !!!!!!!

Now for the stupidest thing ever some may argue that it has a 4G LTE & it’s the next big things & some even went beyond stupidity thinking that it will be faster than the iPad 2 3G here in Kuwait. PEOPLE PLEASE 2G 3G 4G or even 5G will not make any difference coz it all depends on your mobile carrier & as I know we don’t have 4G networks yet.

That isn’t to say I think the iPad 3 is in any way a bad product. It’s probably the best tablet on the market right now, despite there being some great Android alternatives. I just think Apple could have done more on pricing, features & making it a worthwhile upgrade.

My advice which I’ve been saying it, texting it & emailing it, is simple if you own an iPad either 1 or 2 its not worth the upgrade but if you don’t own an iPad already you can go for the iPad 3 or the new iPad if you have the money but the smarter choice & what i would highly redommend is getting the iPad 2 for a bargain price.

Any one out there got convinced or even had my same thoughts or I’m the only one in K-town having these thoughts ????!!!!!

Am i a People’s Person??

by Abdul-Aziz in Bla Bla Bla, Tips

Situations ..Situations ..Situations.. it’s an endless series of life situations.. Isn’t it ok to say Thank You?? Isn’t it all right to be nice?? isn’t it cool to look like a bad ass?? Isn’t it wonderful to love & be loved.

Simple questions do need simple answers indeed. Then how we can say this is a people’s person & that is not?? On what criteria we could base our standards on individuals?? isn’t there rules for this?? is there a guide to show us the path to be the chosen one’s??

Becoming a person who is well loved by the people is critical for success. When people adore you, you are more likely to influence them to your way of thinking and in return form some networking. Networking is the key in any human to human relationship. Hence, it is vital that you become a good communicator “Networker” and in return a great people person.

You should be curiously asking: How i can be one??

The first thing you need to know & be prepared for is that you got to get out of your comfort zone, in order for you to acquire a new skill you have to do something that you have never done before. Therefore, this probably will involve you getting out there and trying new things and putting yourself in very uncomfortable situations. Let’s have a simple example: Like the PR officers, isn’t it uncomfortable fact that your contact details is spreaded all over town??. Thats their work scoop, that what they do for living. In return 96.3% of them are lucky people’s persons (numbers are provided by the organization of Q8 Blend) 😛

However, it is important to note that every uncomfortable situation makes you a better people person. With every new embarrassment or awkward moment, you gain experience which translates into skill. At the same time you got to know your limits, don’t be Nosy (Malqooof) & don’t be shy. Show your self, your skills, your knowledge in an appropriate manner & at appropriate timing. Just be special for what you are.

At the end of the day it all comes down to practice & practice make perfection.

& with that understanding, i shall say: Congrats you have passed People’s person for Dummies!
