Apple gets hits

I don't know if people are angry with Apple, bored with themselves (unemployment level is increasing everywhere), or just want to make money off others. These days Apple is in a lot of legal and economic issues:

1. The 9000 iPod Shuffle scam:
   Nicholas Arthur Woodhams, a 23 year old from Michigan, US scammed Apple in getting out 9000 ipod Shuffles. He then sold these at a price which was lower than the sticker. Read more

2. Apple iPhone not giving 3G as promised, Sued!
   Damone Dickerson has filed a law suit against Apple and AT&T for he was not getting any 3G reception on his iPhone. Read more

3. You pay $500 more for just the eaten fruit logo?
   Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, said that "tide has really turned." What he basically means by this that in these tough times you don't want to spend more for anything that you can get for cheap. You pay $500 more for just the Apple logo. Read more (read the comments below on that page)

Audi Assist in Kuwait

Leaving my gym, I saw this vehicle on my way to my car. And it seems that Kuwait has the Audi 24 Hour Roadside Assist service. Only this service car is not on the road. I also saw the Mercedes Service van parked in the area where I stay. Why don't I see any of these service cars on the road in Kuwait?

Nokia 5800 and TWITTERRR

I got my new Nokia 5800 last week for KD 115. I got the red one, and I asked as to why the Blue version was more expensive (KD 129), the retailer told me because it is new and released after the red one. Dumb!

Well since I have wifi at home and university I thought I'd beef up my phone with some nifty applications which will help me stay connected all the more. I have currently installed the following applications on my phone:

1. Stew for twitter
3. Accuweather*
4. Zip Manager* 
5. Palringo for IM (support all major IMs) (you can also use Fring)
6. Paint Pad for painting* 

*got it through the on board download application

I currently use the free wifi at univesity and Wifi at home to get online on my phone but I wanna be able to be online at all times. This would be really cool, So a twitter buddy of mine blasha, said that she has a KD14/mo contract with zain for her data plan on her curve 8900. Well thats pretty cool. Will head to zain office today and probably sign up for this. I would also like to see if they have any other cheaper/better offers.

You now can also see the little twitter widget on the blog which is actually a live feed of my tweets
