2oktob 3arabi

Yamli

A friend sent me a link to Yamli, a website which does a bunch of things my two favorite being:

1) You search the Arabic web but using English letters. Meaning you type the Arabic as it sounds using English characters like 3arabi and it will convert it for you to عربي

2) You can type a document in Arabic but again using English letters and it will do the conversion for you as you type.

You can try it out, its easy. [Link]

Thanks Katia!

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.

The Daily Star is not listed there probably because their site just recently came online.
