KTV2 vs Harley Davidson

Post by K.theKuwaiti

Harley Kuwait

Today’s newspapers had a story about a innocent KTV2 reporter getting beatup by a gang of Harley Davidson Bikers. While the storyline was far more interesting then most of KTV2’s current content; I found it to be a bit unbelievable (and biased). Which leads us to ask why would a group of Bikers pull the guy aside and beat him up? (other than watching Wild Hogs a few too many times).

Doing the job that the newspapers should have done .. We decided to speak to the Safety Officer of H.O.G-Kuwait (Harley-Davidson Organization Group), Khalid Abu Jabieen.

The other side of the story (as described by Khalid and 30 odd members of H.O.G), Is that the KTV2 reporter was invited to film them on their weekly drive, and do a story about bikers in Kuwait. The reporter, who showed up by himself, decided to take up the various jobs of full TV crew (cameraman, Driver, Producer) on his own. Between juggling driving the car and recording video, he managed to cause several traffic jams and piss off a few of the drivers and bikers on the road. One thing led to another and one of the drivers (not a member of H.O.G) pulled him over, which then led to a fight. The Harley Davidson Bikers, trying to recover whats left of a ruined day, broke up the fight and continued on their way.

Arabic iPhone.

Post by K.theKuwaiti

I received an email introducing me to ‘new’ features on the iPhone (group-sms, mms and arabic keyboard) and to get them I should contact Abdullah by email and be “contacted hopefully immediately”.

Seeing how Abdullah is going to be overwhelmed with emails; after a simple Google search, here are the links to the ‘new’ features (which you could do in the comfort of your own home/office/coffee shop).

USB Turn Table

Post by Nibaq

If you are like me and have a collection of old vinyl but can’t carry then when you travel, well we have found salvation! This bad boy can rip your old records to your computer for easy transferring, editing and scratching. Also the best part is once your are done you can still use it as a stand alone 3-speed player.

Current DSL Prices.

Post by K.theKuwaiti

Here is an updated list of current DSL pricing:

Internet Prices

As I have said in the past; I wouldn’t suggest signing up with United Networks or FastTelco due to their incapability to deliver promised speed, provide sufficient support or maintain a stable network.

The most enticing ‘offer’ (we still pay too much) is the 4mb connection from Qualitynet at 900KD. As you would be looking at a download speed of roughly 400+ KBPS. Although, I am not sure if most telephone lines are capable of handling that speed. Come to think of it, ISPs could offer a 1000MB connection knowing that your telephone line will tap out at 3MB.

With Info-Connect 2008 only two months away, I would suggest extending your subscription until you can make use of the offers there.

Il Forno

Post by Nibaq

I went last week with my parents to the new Al-Sahya restaurant in Avenues called Il Forno. We all enjoyed it. The windows looked out to the garden/fountain area. The food was good except the fish that was bad, but the staff apologized so we forgave them.

I’d go again.

Ice Skating Rink Fire

Post by Marzouq

I don’t know if anyone has any news about this or pictures, but my friend just called me telling me that the ice skating rink is completely on fire. I wonder how that could have happened or if they put it out, its an ice rink how could it catch on fire, its cold and has ice. And if it is damaged to the point its beyond repair would they build a new one?

Does anyone have anymore updates?
