QualityNet’s InfoConnect DSL offers

Qualitynet 2014 InfoConnect DSL pricesI think the offers are pretty amazing, not to mention dirt cheap. I paid KD225 last Feb. for my 6 Mbps from them, and now it’s just KD49. That’s like 80% off last year’s prices. And you get a free gift too (usually a router or an external HD).

Prices are valid during InfoConnect, which runs through Feb. 1st (i.e. this Saturday, the day after tomorrow). Don’t miss out of this great offer.

Heathrow now offers free wifi

Free wifi at Heathrow

If you’ve ever been to Heathrow, especially Terminal 5, you would know that there’s no free wifi. Other terminals have stores that offer free wifi, but not T5. There’s paid wifi, but the Co. they use is terrible and you never can get connected even after you’ve paid.

But now Heathrow has free wifi in all terminals. Just turn on wifi and look for _Heathrow Wi-Fi and follow the instruction. The service is free for the 1st 45 minutes, which gives you plenty of time to check twitter and whatsapp. You can also get an additional 45 minute if you signup for Heathrow Rewards.

  • 45 free.
  • Next 45 minutes free with Heathrow Rewards.
  • Up to 1 hour more – £3
  • Up to 3 hours more – £5
  • A full day (midnight to midnight) – £9

Yahoo’s new logo

Yahoo new logo

For the past week, the logo on my yahoo email was changing daily. Everyday I had a new logo. Apparently, Yahoo was having a bit of fun with us for the past month. Turns out the Co. has completely (and now officially) overhauled its logo.

Free iPhone & iPad with Viva آيباد و آيفون ببلاش من فيفا

Viva all inclusive offer with free iphone ipad and router

This ia an amazing offer from Viva. The offer provides you with free gadgets like a free iPhone, iPad and a router; all included in one single 18 month mobile\internet package.

That’s gadgets and internet are worth  Kd 1,150, which get  for just KD 865. Add to this the cost of call minutes, and you’ll be getting services and gadgets for KD 865 instead of KD 1,300.

That’s a savings of KD 450, enough to buy you a brand new Retina MacBook Pro for free (and throw in a free plastic cover too).

Here are the details and my personal estimate of the price of gadgets and internet included:

  • Free iPhone 5 (worth KD 190).
  • Free iPad 16 GB wireless (worth KD 150).
  • Free LTE router (worth KD 50).
  • Mobile LTE internet (KD 145).
  • Home internet (KD 360).
  • Router internet (KD 235)

And remember, you can now  move your number from your present carrier to a new one; so you don’t even have to change your number to get this offer.

I don’t normally go for combined gadget\services offers, but this one is attractive and hard to ignore. There’s no hidden conditions, and all gadgets are the latest ones.

Viva all inclusive offer vs. zain & quality netNote 1: I use Zain for my mobile phone, mobile internet, and router internet. And I use Quality Net for my home internet.

Note 2: The offer includes 300 free messages per month, which I didn’t factor in because no one uses SMS much anymore. 

Cute “Google I’m Feeling Lucky” surprises

 

If you hover over google’s “I’m feeling lucky” button without typing anything in the search box, it’ll scroll to several cute surprising lucky searches like:

  • I’m feeling stellar.
  • I’m feeling hungry.
  • I’m feeling artistic.
  • I’m feeling trendy.
  • I’m feeling puzzled.

Try it, it’s funny.

The life of 90’s kids

 

This is a cute Microsoft Explorer commercial, very spot on. They captured the lives of the 90’s kids perfectly. I’m getting so nostalgic about the 90’s, even though I wasn’t a kid then anymore.

How to get a mobile internet data line in the USA for your phone

image

I’ve been in the US for a week now, and the first thing I needed here was Internet on my phone. We went to all three major mobile phone companies, and most don’t have prepaid Internet lines. Our only and beat option was AT&T’s GoPhone plans. I got a one month unlimited local calls and texts (including Mexico and Canada) for $50, and then added unlimited one month data (which I also use as a wireless hub for my both my Kuwaiti line iPhone and laptops) for just $25 extra. The process is easy simple, and takes 15 minutes at any of their branches.

There are cheaper options too, like just add $10 for a 1GB 1 month plan. The connection is way faster than ours for phone Internet, and almost snappy for laptop use. So if you’re ever in the US and need Internet on your phone, then just get this from AT&T.

Serious update on the red traffic light violations hacker

 

The issue is way more serious than just posting about a few running-a-red-light violations [link] with names and dates.

It turns out that the same guy was also able to collect complete information of Kuwait University students (including bank accounts and home addresses),  AND full information regarding legal cases and offences of people from the M.O.Justice (by generating their civil ID numbers).

This guy is rumoured to be an Egyptian working for our government, named Sameh Ahmad or something like that. On the bright side, it seems that catching this guy might be a semi-easy task (like 90% sure), only if the authorities decide to issue the relevant warrants and start investigating.

I got all this info. from the video I posted here. It’s a shame really that internet security expert, Abdulla Al-Ali, is an unpaid volunteer investigating all this on his own accord and initiative.  I vote for the M.O.Interior to immediately hire him as an outside expert and consultant, and allow him to beef up their systems’ security.

This is some serious business here. We can’t have our personal, bank, and legal details exposed in the open like this. This is precisely why Americana and Europeans refuse to provide their governments with personal and important details without proper warrants. It’s because their information can be easily hacked and their privacy exposed and spread in the open. Or worse, be used in illegal activities and identity thefts.
