Live from GITEX

Posted by Mark

Since I have 3 hours before I have to be at the airport I decided to pass by GITEX. I just got to the Apple stand hopefully they have the new iPods on display although I doubt they do. (Posted from my Nokia e61i)

Urgh Dubai

Posted by Mark

I am going to Dubai tomorrow and coming back Saturday. I really don’t feel like going to Dubai, all I feel like doing is just sleeping in late and then ordering a pizza while I watch some TV on the couch. This would be the third weekend in a row in which I am traveling, but unlike the last two trips, Dubai doesn’t interest me. I won’t be taking my laptop with me and I don’t think I will be moblogging from there either. Last months bill increased nearly 600% from my usual because of my moblogging!

iPhone Vs. iPod Touch

Posted by Mark

ipod vs iphone

I was trying to figure out if I should get the iPhone or the iPod Touch for Nat and in the end decided on the iPhone. The iPhone has a few extra features over the iPod Touch, it has a phone (duh..), it has bluetooth, a digital camera and the battery lasts slightly longer. The price difference between an 8GB iPhone and an 8GB iPod Touch is also just $100. Now the downside is that the iPhone needs to be unlocked to work in Kuwait. I figured if I couldn’t figure out how to unlock it I will just end up with an iPod which can browse the web and take pictures which really isn’t that bad. You can check the side by side comparison on the features by following this [Link]

Come to Kuwait and feel the heat of paradise

Posted by Mark

Last year I posted about this very strange tourism video I found on YouTube in which three women try to convince the world that Kuwait is a great place to visit. You would think that alone was strange but the three women then take us on a tour around Kuwait highlighting some of its best parts which include Canary Restaurant, Taxi Al Resala and some unknown electronics store. It was extremely weird, cheesy and funny but now the wait is over, the full version of the film is out!

It’s 43 minutes long but you really don’t need to watch it all to realize how unbelievably bizarre it is. The whole time I am just thinking to myself what the hell are they talking about!? In one scene early on in the movie they point out how the new Kuwait is getting built side by side to the old Kuwait and how old and new architecture is merging and creating a new better future. It all sounds decent and corny except for the fact the video accompanying this theory is of the old back alley streets of Salmiya and their idea of old Kuwait are the 30 year old nearly demolished crack houses while the new architecture of Kuwait are the cheap ass multistory tiny bedroom built cheaply out of cardboard to make money apartment buildings. Actually, that does sound about right. A few minutes later into the documentary they take us to meet one of the “important faces in Kuwait”… the sales manager of Holiday Inn!

They are unpredictable and you never know where they will be taking you next but surprisingly I love it! It just keeps getting weirder and weirder and I can’t stop watching it. Although its a really really really terribly shot and produced movie and although their idea of whats cool in Kuwait is very demented, the documentary still manages to crack me up. It’s soooo unreal!
