The BBC Fuckup

Post by Mark

I don’t know if you guys heard about this, the news is a few days old but it just got more interesting today since I found a video for it.

Basically what happened was BBC interviewed the wrong person live on TV, they were supposed to get this technology expert to come in and talk about the legal battle between Beatles’ Apple Corps and Apple Computers but somehow they messed up and they ended up bringing a taxi driver on the show instead and they interviewed him thinking he was the technology expert. Anyway I found a site now that not only has an article on this incident but actually has a video of the interview. Its really funny. [Link]

Note: Notice the guys face when the BBC chick introduces him

MacBook Pro Prices in Kuwait

Post by Mark

MacBook Pro

TivoGuy passed by zMacShop yesterday because he was interested in the MacBook Pro. He was expecting the prices to be a bit more expensive then the States but it turns out they were selling it for KD890 which is KD160 more expensive! This is for the 15.4″ 2.0Ghz with 1GB RAM and 100GB HD. So I phoned a couple of other Mac stores in Kuwait to see how much they were all charging for the same laptop and this is what I found:

Mac & More
Tel: 5735815
Price: KD 980

Integrated Office Co (IOC)
Tel: 6275734
Price: KD 980

Mac City
Tel: 4911112
Price: KD 970

Kamal Al Sultan Co
Tel: 4815533
Price: KD 965

zMacShop
Tel: 2617575
Price: KD 890

Solize
Tel: 7215945
Price: KD 850

Turns out zMacShop is actually a lot cheaper then the other Mac stores in Kuwait but surprisingly not the cheapest. The cheapest store turned to be Solize and by KD40 which is a nice chunk of change. The price on Amazon is KD730 for your information.
