vista

You need a dual-core processor system, with 2Gb or more of fast RAM, a 256Mb or better display card, a hard drive better than what’s currently available and, if we want to watch the upcoming high defininition multimedia content, a monitor that doesn’t even exist yet! [Link]

Kuwait in Wallpaper*

Posted by Mark

wallpaper

Just checked out this months issue of Wallpaper* magazine and turns out Kuwait is in it. Here is the summary of Septembers issue featuring Kuwait:

Navigating six of the world’s most exciting cities, moving and sheikh-ing in hip Kuwait, snooping around Rupert Murdoch’s Mayfair pad, living like royalty in a Bavarian castle, gazing at Tel Aviv’s latest design stars, dressing up Dubai-style, cutting a dash in sharp tailoring, admiring the new talent from the ICFF and much more

The magazine features Sheikh Majed Al-Sabah (Villa Moda), Sheikha Hussah Al-Sabah (Dar al-Athar al-Islamiyyah), Emad al-Samhan (Grass Exhibition), Rola Dashti (Women’s rights movement) and Maha al-Ghunaim (Global Investment House). I like how Wallpaper called Kuwait “hip”, puts things in a different perspective.

Stupid DS Battery

Posted by Mark

People complain about how the Sony PSP’s battery lasts for only 3 hours while the Nintendo DS lasts for 8. Well I have had the PSP for a few months now and I never had a battery issue because I was always able to charge the battery before it got low enough to cause me a problem. Awhile ago I was playing with my Nintendo DS and suddenly the green battery LED turned red. So I figure this must mean I have like 2 hours of playtime left before the battery dies. I was wrong, 20 minutes later my DS died!

There is no way to know exactly how much power is left in your DS until the red light comes on and only then do you know that you are fucked. Atleast with the PSP in every pause screen of any game you can see the battery meter on the top right corner telling you exactly how much battery is left.

Oolite

Posted by Mark

Oolite is a space sim game, written for Mac OS X in Objective C using Cocoa and OpenGL. It is designed as a small game that is easy for users to pick up and expand upon. Almost every aspect of the game can be modified using simple, free graphics packages and text-editors. Oolite now works in Tiger. [Link]

Update: Although the idea behind this game sounded promising, after playing it or should I say trying to play it, this game is basically crap.

Nokia N90

Posted by Mark

Saw the N90 today, its A LOT bigger then I imagined and extremely over priced. The shop I was in was selling it for KD350. I played with it for like 2 minutes and I personally think it looks cool when closed but cheap when opened. The keypads design is the biggest culprit, I think thats what hurts its looks the most.
