News is Dead. Long live Content.

News is Dead. Long live Content.

When news is published, it’s just the beginning of the conversation, not its end. This is what “news” is today. It’s necessarily a live conversation that informs, educates and empowers people to make better decisions. Whether you like it or not, printed newspapers, and magazines are dead. I believe that they’re uselessly clinging to life through […]

iPhone 6s. ‘Nuff Said.

iPhone 6s. ‘Nuff Said.

What is the feature that most draws you to buy the just announced iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus? To me, as a die-hard Apple-geek, it doesn’t have to be that much, just the new new shiny thing would suffice. However; it’s nice that it has 4k video, 12MP camera, Live Photos (love this feature!), 3D […]

I suspect that I do most of my internet usage through it, rather than my laptop or iPad. Like most, I suspect, I must […]

After a year of painfully using Viva’s mediocre but much over-hyped internet offering in Bahrain, I’ve terminated both contracts for my home and office. The best speed I could get out of Viva was something like 4mbps and that was flaky. As far as the uploads are concerned, I don’t think I got much more […]

No no, this is not a political post. I’m (almost) fed up of that crap. Instead, this is just to share with you what I’ve done to my office today in celebration of a new year and a determination to grab this year and bend it to my will 🙂 I frankly got fed up […]

It was a good opportunity and we both were impressed with various products on show. Here’s the vlog I […]
