A morning accident

Post by Mark

I’ve seen a lot of accidents on the Gulf Road but I think this morning was the first time in which I saw two cars actually end up on the Gulf Road median. Luckily none of the cars hit a lamppost but I still believe that the Gulf Road would be much safer if they installed collapsible lampposts (Video below).

See where your friends are right now

Post by Mark

Although in most places around the world the BlackBerry is used as a business tool in Kuwait its become a social one. With all my friends practically owning one the built in BlackBerry Messenger is a perfect way to stay in contact with all of them through out the day and a much more efficient way to communicate quick messages. Google Latitude is another application that also helps in being more social by showing you where your friends are around the world at that moment. Basically how Latitude works is you need to install the application on your BlackBerry and then sign in using your gmail account and add other friends who also have Latitude installed. You will then be able to see them on the map like in the picture above.

Latitude has many useful uses, I personally use it to find friends nearby like if I am at the Avenues I check and see which one of my friends is there or like last week I was at Kinkos in Salmiya waiting for something to get printed and then I noticed on Latitude Marzouq was just down the street. Latitude also helped a friend get to a BBQ I was at. He didn’t have the address but since I was already at the BBQ he just looked for me on Latitude and then drove towards me.

But the software isn’t perfect, when you’re indoors the GPS usually doesn’t work so the software uses cell towers to estimate where you are. Sometimes for some odd reason Latitude thinks I am in London or a friend is randomly in Belgium or Pakistan. It doesn’t happen frequently but when it does it can be funny or annoying depending on the situation.

Latitude works on the following phones:
– Android-powered devices, such as the T-Mobile G1
– most color BlackBerry devices
– most Windows Mobile 5.0+ devices
– most Symbian S60 devices (Nokia smartphones)

Its free and you can get it from [Here]

Lots of water

Post by Mark

I was at Dean & Deluca when I noticed what looked like a new section filled with vodka bottles. Once I got closer I realized that what I thought was vodka turned out to be nearly two dozen kinds of high end water bottles. Here is a larger picture of the above in which you can read the brand names of the water. [Picture]
