Logo Test

Posted by Mark

This is an Excel file with 200 logos in it. The aim of this test is to try and name the brands which belong to the logo. I was able to guess 83 right and ended up with a 42%. There were a couple of logos which looked really familiar but I just couldn’t remember who they belonged to which made things really frustrating but still very fun. [Link]

Girls Getting Harassed

Posted by Mark

I got a video of some girls getting harassed by what I understood were some Saudi guys. The video was shot with the phone of one of the guys. I think I read about a similar incident sometime back in the papers but I am not sure if its the same incident. [3gp 1.1MB]

Aramex HAS a Competitor!

Posted by Mark

Just got a phone call from Sarita. Some of you might know her from the Aramex Shop n Ship service. She left them a while back and now works at a new place called IEC Trading who offer a similar service to Aramex except with some more advantages. I only got a few details off her but will be getting more soon. Here is what I got:

– Setting up a US mailbox costs the same, KD10
– Packages are shipped to Kuwait via FedEx and DHL
– No customs on any of your packages
– Shipping prices are the same
– On heavy packages they can give you a discount

So far everything sounds great and I will definitely be creating an account with them since Aramex have become really slow. My last package spent 7 days in UAE in transit! Once I get more details I will post them here.

I hope ads won’t start popping up everywhere. I think Yahoo! looks like its going to kick Googles ass in everything except web searching. [Link]

Oula?

Posted by Mark

I have a quick question. I was driving by Al Khalijiyeh Building in Kuwait City when I noticed the gas station across the street from it was branded “Oula”. Is this part of the gas station privatizing? I don’t think they have a logo yet, it was just Oula written in regular black type on a white background, very dull.

Holga – Color Shots

Posted by Mark

Holga Colored

I just developed my first roll of colored film with my Holga camera and the results turned out to be pretty impressive. I really prefer color over black & white shots any day and if you compare my shots this time around to my previous black & white ones you can see why. The colors turned out very vibrant and the Holga effects were more obvious this time around. Click on more to see some other pictures.
