Wataniya Ads

Posted by Mark

wataniya

I was coming in to work today when I briefly saw an ad on the street which at first glanced looked like Coca Cola had some sort of deal with Sony Ericsson. When I got to the office someone was talking about the new Wataniya ads with Rotana. So I go to the Wataniya website and there was the ad I saw in the morning. It wasn’t Coca Cola with Sony Ericsson, it was Wataniya with Rotana and Nokia!

Eureka Macs

Posted by Mark

I think Eureka are living in a world of their own. I past by yesterday and they had the old 15inch powerbooks for KD1115 which is $3818 making it nearly $2000 more expensive then the new 15inch PowerBooks. Way to go Eureka! I think they are officially the most expensive Mac store in Kuwait.

For detailed information on Security Updates, please visit this website: http://www.info.apple.com/kbnum/n61798

The coolest update has to be Disk Utility: With Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later, Disk Utility can verify your computer’s startup disk (volume) without requiring you to start up from another volume. This feature is called “Live Verification.” If Disk Utility discovers any issues that require a repair, you will need to start up from your Mac OS X Tiger DVD or CD and use Disk Utility on that disc to make repairs. (You can’t repair your startup volume while your computer is started up from it.)

Simple Lies

Posted by Mark

I watched a movie yesterday called Simple Lies. From the minute it started I hated the movie. The first scene involved 2 guys and a girl near a cliff during sunset dancing as if they were listening to rave. For me thats trying too hard to be cool. The whole movie was like that, trying too hard to be cool or trying too hard to be weird or even trying too hard to be cult. The acting was bad, the lines were terrible, the story uninteresting and the ending was stupid. I do not recommend this movie. Simple Lies is Simply Crap.

Posted by Mark

akismet

Matt Mullenweg of WordPress has released a new anti-spam plugin for WordPress called Akismet. According to the early beta users its supposed to be incredibly accurate capturing 99.51% of the spam with no false positives. I personally won’t be installing it since I am using Spam Karma and it has been doing an incredible job catching in total over 10,000 spam comments since I installed it late September. Plus Spam Karma is free. [Link]
