Mobile phones are arguably the most important piece of technology we own/need today. Unfortunately, there are many people who'se choice is affected mainly because of the brand. There are also people who listen to the word on the streets. Because i'm going to buy a phone this summer, and to help everyone with this, i've decided to face-off eight phones which are considered the high-end devices in their respective brands (Blackberry Bold, Nokia N96, HTC Touch Diamond, Samsung F480, Sony Ericsson G900, Sony Ericsson Xperia X1, and LG KU990 Viewty). So her goes:
* Physical Design: A sleek design with two way sliding and only a couple of buttons. Very brushed finishing and glossy. >> 8.5/10
Overall Score: 41.5/55 to 46.5/55 >> 75% to 85%
* Physical Design: Simple classic design. Nothing flashy here. >> 8.5/10
Overall Score: 43.5/55 >> 79%
* Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi 802.11b/g >> 5/5

Summer is almost here (meaning the end of school), so there's nothing better to do than relax under the air condition and enjoy the power of video gaming. Although i have alot to worry about papers and stuff for university, i think i will have alot of time playing. Here are the games i'm going to be playing this summer:

I tried Wok n Roll for the first time two days ago, and this is a good review! At first, i thought that there weren't any good chinese delivery restaurants in Kuwait. My sister though insisted we try this one, and so we did. It was really great. We ordered (from what i remember) Shrimp on toast (good, but not crispy), Szechuan chicken (very good), Meat with brocolli (meat quality was bad), steamed rice (good), vegetable noodles (good) and sweet and sour chicken (good). As is the obvious, this restaurant is generally good, and i will definetly try it again.
That's it. I have had enough of my IBM F***pad ... it is time for dissection:

"Marketwatch relays a Commercial Times report that suggests we will see the next MacBook revisions in Q3 2008 (July-September).According to the newspaper, AU Optronics Corp.and Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corp. received orders for flat-panel displays to be used in the next MacBook.
Taiwan's top two flat-panel makers by revenue, have obtained flat-panel orders for Apple Inc.'s new MacBook, the Commercial Times reported Friday, citing industry sources.The shipment target for this new MacBook is said to be in the 3rd quarter of 2008 for up to 3 million units.The MacBook was last updated ahead of expectations in late February. Those updates were relatively modest, primarily replacing the MacBook processor with the new Penryn chips. A 3rd Quarter release would put the next MacBook revisions behind the introduction of the Montevina platform which is due in June. Other reports have claimed that the next MacBook would see "major design changes" with a transition from plastic to aluminum and stainless steel. "

Anyhow, this post is about the really crafty way the place was designed and decorated. First of all, i would like to point out that the place is like a maze. I was turning in circles until i realized i was coming back to the same place. The best thing about the place were the posters that were hung on the wall. They were electronics poster that shine at certain places. They were cool.
What was totally not cool though was the fact that there were many students there that were going to take the tests, and they were such show-offs. Like there was this girl who was a total American-wannabe. She thought that showing everyone her underpants was cool. She was also like the type of person that is "i'm-fast-i-can-finish-the-test-before-everyone" type. URGH. Anyhow, hope i get a 100 this time :D

Nike have also developed through this system a way to rate all athletes in the world. You basically perform a set of exercises and the program will calculate your Athletic Score. Now while this is pretty cool, I would like to get my score before and after i use this system. My only problem with this program is that you need a lot of space, so i'm hoping i can find such space at a basketball court in OSU. You can check out the program by going to the Sparq Training website. Or check out the products at the Sparq Store website.

"I once knew someone who carried snow emergency equipment in his car 12 months a
year, "just in case". While this is a bit extreme, weather here is much as the
saying goes, "if you don't like the weather in Ohio, just wait an hour." If
you're going to spend a year or two or four here you will need everything from
heavy winter gloves and boots to light tropical summer wear...and everything in
between. If you have to switch from "heat" to "A/C" on the same day...you're in
