Saudi family sues genie, alleges harassment

Post by Mark

There was article on CNN.com today about a family in Saudi Arabia that is taking a genie to court on harassment charges. My question is this, if the family wins, how does the genie pay them? [Link]

Horrendous Living Conditions

Post by Mark

Found this album on Flickr with pictures of living conditions of some workers here in Kuwait. Looking at the building from outside you would think they were half way being demolished but in reality people actually live in them. [Pictures]

It seems there is a local Logitech website where you can purchase Logitech products and have them delivered to you the very next day. The coolest part has to be their prices, from what I checked their prices either were slightly more expensive than Amazon or slightly cheaper.

Logitech Harmony One Advanced Universal Remote
Amazon: KD55.500
Logitech Kuwait: KD49.950

Logitech Illuminated Keyboard

I found someone on eBay that makes and sells the red leather suit similar to the one Michael Jackson wore in Thriller. Sadly Nat threatened to walk out on me if I wear it. [Link]

First Impressions: Sennheiser PXC 250

Post by Mark

I own too many headphones for some reason and yet I always manage to convince myself I need a new pair. I currently own a B&O A8, Shure E2, Sennheiser PX100, AKG K81 DJ and the Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Pro. These cover just about every type of headphone from in ear’s, to over head, from open air to closed back, and from tiny to large and bulky. Whats missing are a pair of noise canceling headphones. I originally fell in love with the noise canceling Beats but due to the fact they weren’t very portable made them unpractical for my main reason of wanting noise canceling headphones and that’s traveling.

So after a bit of research I decided to buy a pair of Sennheiser PXC250’s. I had read about them ages ago and remembered them again with the release of the newer updated PXC300. But after some googling I realized the 300’s were just a slight improvement over the 250 but were also double the price. So without hesitation I bought the 250’s from Amazon for just $73.

I’ve been listening to them for over an hour now and the headphones don’t have much bass. I was expecting that based on previous reviews I had read but since I will be primarily using them to watch TV shows on my Archos 7, its not a big deal for me but might be to you. The noise canceling seems to be working right. The dryer is on and when I turn the noise canceling on I don’t hear it, when off I do. The proper test will be using it on the plane which I should be soon.

The little device thats in the picture above is the battery holder. The Sennheisers work with or without battery but the noise cancellation only works with batteries. Once I get back from a trip will post another review on these.

The Sennheiser PXC 250 is for $72 on Amazon [Link]
The Sennheiser PXC 300 is for $128 on Amazon [Link]

Fancy Fast Food

Post by Mark

Fancy Fast Food is a website where they take ordinary meals from fast food chains and give them an extreme makeover to make them look fancy. For example the dish above was created using two pieces of spicy fried chicken, a chicken wrap and an order of red beans and rice all from Popeyes. [Link]

The Failed Escape in Abu Halifa

Post by Mark

360Dewan posted this messed up video that was shot here in Kuwait of a pickup truck dragging a car behind it. When I first watched the video I thought the car in the back was pushing the truck but then I realized the car in the back had the brakes held down most of the time. By the end of the video it turns out the pickup truck somehow crashed into the car (probably reversed into it) and then tried escaping but the car got attached to the truck and was being dragged alone. In the end a woman comes out of the car screaming asking people to help her out. [YouTube]
