snes discoloration

A very informative article on why old systems and specifically the SNES get discolored. I always figured it was something in the plastic and that light might also have something to do and turns out I was mostly right. [Link]

Chocolate Spread

Post by Mark

Nutella

While flipping through some pictures I had taken with my phone, I found this shot which I had taken in a supermarket in Lebanon. Its a collectors edition of Nutella. How come we didn’t get that here in Kuwait? I actually noticed that in Lebanon there is a larger collection of chocolate spreads then Kuwait. Maybe once Carrefour opens up they will start getting stuff Sultan Center doesn’t.

Missing Speed Camera

Post by Mark

The speed camera on the Gulf Road opposite Al-Shaab park is missing. Either it was removed which I doubt or a car probably crashed into it which what probably happened. Whatever the case, there is no camera there now.

Where is the rain?

Post by Mark

I was supposed to ride to work today on my bike but I woke up and the sky was cloudy so I was like its going to rain. I checked three weather websites and they all said it would be cloudy but no rain. I looked outside again and I was like no its going to rain, so I came to work in my car. Now its nearly 12 and it still hasn’t rained. Where is the rain?

apple 20inch display

Today before I left the office I swapped my Lacie 19inch CRT monitor with a brand new Apple 20inch display. It was supposed to be for another employee but he didn’t want it so I took it. Its nothing compared to Nats 30inch display but its still cool and sexy.

iPhone Vs P990

Post by Mark

iphone p990

I was just discussing the size of the iPhone with Nibaq when he stated it was similer to his Sony Ericsson P990 which I thought was strange because the iPhone looks bigger. Well he was right, here are the dimensions:

Apple iPhone
115 × 61 × 11.6 mm

Sony Ericsson
114 x 57 x 26 mm

iPhone is out.. yada yada yada

Post by Mark

iphone

Yeah iPhone is out but..

– No 3G meaning if you decide to surf the web its using the incredibly lame speed of EDGE which makes it outdated before the phone is even released (wifi is cool in the US but in Kuwait not really useful)

– Only works with US Cingular network for now meaning it won’t work in Kuwait

– Cheapest version of iPhone costs $500 and thats with the 2 year Cingular contract. How much will the unlocked version of the phone cost? $800?

– In the pictures it looks as big as an Apple Newton

– Would I end up getting one? Yeah probably
