Review: Mac & More Marina Mall

Post by Mark

Mac & More

Back in February of last year I published a post titled “Mac & Small” and in it I talked about how small their branch at Galleria 2000 was and how over priced their items were. Well yesterday I passed by Mac & More’s new branch in Marina Mall and I have to say they are no longer small. The place looks really cool and huge.. and thats the only positive thing I can say. It seems when they moved from Mac & Small to Marina Mall they didn’t get any new merchandise. The place is empty and I mean empty. When you first walk in there is one MacBook Pro on display and one MacMini connected to a generic brand of LCD screen.. imagine not even an Apple Display! Once you walk into the rest of the shop you will realize that was it, no more Apple products.. the rest of the store is just a large shelf full of iPods and a wall full of generic iPod skins which you can find at any other Mac store in Kuwait including Mac City which is located in Virgin at the other end of Marina Mall. Even the tiny zMacShop have brands like Marware and Foof how come Mac & More don’t have anything cool?

Price wise… Mac & More is the most expensive Apple dealer in Kuwait.

The store is visually very impressive which misleads you to believe you will find many great things there, but once you go in and look around and can’t find anything, you wonder what the hell are these guys selling… iPod covers?

update: If I was to review the store again now I would have to say they have improved things a lot. Firstly they have a lot more products and a lot more brands, their prices have also decreased, maybe not as cheap as US prices but they are closer to UAE prices. I would probably give them a 3.5 out of 5 now.

Vespa COol

Is there someone in Kuwait that imports the Vespa brand of scooters? I think it would be cool to travel around Salmiya in a baby blue Vespa. No more looking for parking at Sultan Center..

Kid Loco was in Kuwait!

Post by Mark

Kid Loco

I am soooo fucking pissed now. I was just reading the Kuwait Times newspaper from a few days ago where they talked about the Beach Spike event that took place on the weekend and it turns out Kid Loco was the DJ at the event. KID FUCKING LOCO! He is like one of my favorite artists and this is the second time I missed him. The first time he came to Lebanon to play at one of my favorite pubs (Bongos) but I was here in Kuwait and couldn’t go down see him play cuz of my Army papers and now this. I didn’t go to the event because I couldn’t leave Geo alone all day neither could he spend the whole day under the sun but if I had know Kid Loco was going to be there I would have atleast taken all his CDs with me to get them autographed. This is totally unfair, I am extremely pissed. Kid Loco was in Kuwait from all places! Kid Loco!!

Here is a link to some of his albums on Amazon. My favorite is a A Grand Love Story. [Link]

The funniest celebrity news in a while now, Tommy Hilfiger and Axl Rose (Guns N Roses duh) got into a fight at this party and the funny thing is Tommy was the psycho while Axl was the gentleman. It just doesn’t make sense.. [Link]

Wanting a MacBook

Post by Mark

91 degrees

I really want to get the new MacBooks but I am extremely worried about the overheating problems. If I lived in the States I would go ahead and get a MacBook because worse comes to worse if I have a problem I can always return it.

The problem here is that I am going to order the MacBook from Amazon and ship it all the way to Kuwait which means if something goes wrong I would either have to (a) deal with it (b) fix it with my own money (warranty doesn’t apply in Kuwait) (c) ship it all the way back to the US to get it fixed.

This is why if I order the MacBook I have to know I won’t have any issues and it currently looks like I will. I don’t think I could wait for revision B since that will be like in atleast 6 months and I am not going to wait that long. A guy in one of the Mac forums I visit took the screenshot above.. 91 degrees! A bit more and he could start boiling water…

Macsaber

Post by Mark

The past few days I was hearing a lot about this application on the Mac called Macsaber that worked with the latest Apple notebooks by replicating the Star Wars light saber sound everytime you swung your Mac around. Anyway I couldn’t try it myself and I couldn’t find any videos or pictures of it in action so I ignored it.. until now. I present you with Macbook Man! [Link]
