BlackPad – Rumor?

Is RIM really working on a “BlackPad” – an OS compatible 8.9″ display screens from Hon Hai.?

Apparently BBLeaks reported that few months back, but I just got an email with a link to AlAnba Newspaper about it dated back to August 13th 2010! Its supposed to be thinner and smaller than the iPad!

Buses Driving OVER Cars!

China has overtaken the United States as the world’s biggest producer of greenhouse gases and biggest energy consumer.

In an effort to go green and relieve congestion without widening roads, the Shenzhen Huashi Future ParkingEquipment company is developing a “3D Express Coach” (also known as a “three-dimensional fast bus”).

The innovation will allow cars less than 2 meters high to travel underneath the upper level of the vehicle, which will be carrying passengers

Failaka Phone Bill – Overdue!!

A Kuwaiti citizen was asked to pay her overdue bill dated back to 1986 for her phone which was used while she lived in Failaka back then.

The story begins when she went to settle her phone bill not too long ago, and four days later her line got disconnected. When she went again to inquire about it she was asked to settled her 1986 bill! Even though she explained to them that she has not used that line since the Iraqi invasion, and that the government omitted all bills after the invasion… she was asked to settle that bill of KD117 if she wants her current link back!

BlackBerry Users to Cover BlackBerry in Burqa

With all the mumbo jumbo going on about the BlackBerry Services suspension in some of the Gulf States, my friend sent me this funny interesting artricle from NewsBiscuits

“New laws in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will require that every Blackberry user dress their phone a miniature burqa and face veil.

‘The Blackberry burqa means that people can still use their phones,’ said a Saudi government official, ‘but the tiny niqab that covers the screen will stop them from reading emails or accessing the Internet.’

The introduction of the burqa is intended to conceal the Blackberry from unwanted attention. With the veil in place only a tiny slit remains revealing just the time and date, thus preserving its modesty.”
