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]

Food 4 Thought

Post by Mark

F4T I first found out about F4T from q8techdrive‘s blog a few days ago and then yesterday out of the blue they delivered their menu to my office. So today morning me and some friends ordered some food from them and it turned out to be pretty good. Their menu was a turn off, its too cluttered, hard to navigate and full of useless text on the history of each food item when they could have used that space to put the ingredients. After finally figuring out what to order we gave them a call and they told us they would be over within 40 minutes, 30 minutes later the food arrived. I ordered the Halloumi Heaven which was recommended by q8techdrive and Entrepreneur, while my friends ordered the Tender Turkey Sandwich, Fries and the Sweetcorn Chicken Salad. I found the Halloumi Heaven not bad, like a 7/10. The Tender Turkey was supposingly really tasty while the Sweetcorn Salad not that good. The fries is regular fried fries but was really good also. Unlike LoFat, F4T does provide you with nutritional values although they are a rough estimate. Anyway I can’t give it a full review based on one sandwich I had but atleast you get some idea. It seems like better food then LoFat although not as healthy. Then again healthy food is usually no match for unhealthy food.

I really dislike F4T’s menu and website style, its like wannabe cool/trendy which is a disaster. They have a website where you can download their menu from. The link to the menu is on the far right just incase you couldn’t find it. [Link]

Movie Review: Stay

Post by Mark

Stay the movie

I was supposed to watch Lucky Number Slevin but the downloaded copy I had turned out to be corrupted so I decided to watch Stay. I had downloaded it a while back but wasn’t very keen in watching it but since I didn’t have anything else I went ahead and did.

The movie stars Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts, where Ewan plays the role of a psychiatrist who is trying to stop one of his patients from committing suicide. Things start to go weird and confusing and he tries to get a grip on what is real and what isn’t.

The movie wasn’t only weird and confusing to Ewan but also to me. I don’t mind “strange” movies and I don’t mind being puzzled trying to figure out whats going on, but the problem with Stay is that in the end when everything finally comes together and all the questions answered, you realize that the past 90 minutes were really not worth the ending. I am not going to ruin the the movie and tell you what happens in the end but I can tell you that it didn’t leave me shocked but more like “huh this is it? How lame.”

The movie felt slow at some points but the acting was great and visually the movie looked cool. In general I like Ewan McGregor as long as he isn’t singing and Naomi Watts when she isn’t running around the jungle looking for King Kong. It could be the movie wasn’t weird enough to make the ending good or maybe its the other way around, but whatever the case, I didn’t have high expectations of the movie to begin with and so wasn’t left too disappointed.

My Ankle

Post by Mark

Today morning around 5:30AM when running with Geo, I tripped and fell on the ground scrapping my left leg and getting a slight cut on my left hand. I came back home, washed up and went back to sleep. I woke up again at 8AM to get ready for work when I realized my right ankle was killing me. I think i sprained my ankle and now I can barely walk or use the gas pedal in my car. I am actually driving with my left leg on the brakes while the right one on the gas pedal since it hurts less this way. Going to use Google Health to try and find out what I need to do to fix this shit.

LoFat Trouble

Post by Mark

I dropped the review score for LoFat yesterday to a 3.5 out of 5 because as some people mentioned, LoFat doesn’t provide any nutritional information nor the amount of calories in their meals. This kind of information is important for people who are watching their weight and should be provided.

Anyway today some people from my office placed an order to LoFat at 11:30AM, by 2PM they still hadn’t delivered the food so we had to cancel the order. This isn’t going to effect the original rating since they have been delivering on time in general, I just don’t know what got into them today..
