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
A friend is selling her PowerMac for a really good deal. The Mac was purchased last July from Solize and is in like new condition. The PowerMac has been used maybe only 4 or 5 times for video editing. Here are the specs:
– 2.3 Ghz, Dual Processor
– 1 GB RAM (upgradable to 8GB)
– 250 GB Harddisk
– Super Drive
Asking price: KD650
update: PowerMac has been sold!
Yeah its just a mockup but it does look cool. Would love to get my hands on the black one. [Link]
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
Price: KD 980
Integrated Office Co (IOC)
Price: KD 980
Price: KD 970
Kamal Al Sultan Co
Price: KD 965
Price: KD 890
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.
I just watched Apples new ‘psychedelic’ iPod ad and its really trippy. The spot features the song Love Train from the super hot Aussie band Wolfmother. [Link]
