New PC!

I managed to kill 2 PCs this year with my incredible high-end-user demands (NOT!).  The first was my ancient HP and the second was the developers machine that Richard lent to me to continue with.

The screen on that died a few days ago.  The contrast started fading at the outer-edges of the screen and slowly migrated towards the centre.  Within about 3 minutes the whole thing was unreadable. Then it turned green and purple and finally closed its eyes and went to sleep (black).  The whole process took under 5 minutes.

You know when you have a gut feeling that something is very, very serious? Yeah. I got that feeling. And despite my relatively limited (for an IT consultant) knowledge of hardware I just knew it was the end for that screen.

Fortunately everything is backed up, and the hard disk still works perfectly.  I even can still access the files through Richard’s PC via the home network.

Anydeadhardware, I have a new machine!

It’s an Acer Aspire One.

Last month I wrote about a survey on people’s attitudes to You Tube in the UAE.

youtubelogoToday, there is an article in the Gulf News titled Police highlight negative aspects of YouTube. Here it is…

By Siham Al Najami, Staff Reporter Published: April 03, 2009,

Dubai: A session held at Dubai Police highlighted the negative aspects of YouTube as part of the Juvenile Association in Dubai’s duty to raise public awareness on the dangers of the internet.

Last month Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Chief of Dubai Police and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Juvenile Association, called for the YouTube website to be blocked.

He said the video-sharing website included indecent material that influenced the younger generation towards delinquency. He added the association was launching a campaign for this purpose, as its duty to protect the youth.

The areas of discussion with a delegation from Google covered the site’s negative points such as showing pornographic clips and blasphemous clips that mock religions.

“Dubai Police completely supports the personal freedom of every individual but there is certain content on YouTube that is absolutely unacceptable to any country, society or individual,” said Major General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina, Deputy Chief of Dubai Police.

Dubai Police will collaborate with the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority to ensure the safe use of the internet that will encourage the youth to benefit from it.

Google’s Gisel Hiscock, Director of New Biz Development in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said her visit was part of a tour she is undergoing in the region to listen to ideas and recommendations as well as to prepare for future meetings with officials to address specific concerns.

Guess I’d better watch the rest of the items on Greg Rutter’s Definitive List of the 99 things you should have already experienced on the internet unless you’re a loser or old or something before it’s too late!

Handbags

I’m thinking these places that allow you to hire ‘It Bags’ are genius. I was very excited when I read that there is one here in Dubai!

It’s called http://www.toujourschic.ae/

They don’t have a large inventory of bags as yet but I’m sure that will grow.  I was thinking of purchasing a particular bag – albeit on eBay because I cannot afford the retail price – and I see it is for hire. It’s not in the same colour but that doesn’t really bother me. I was going to buy it in black anyway, so I just need to know if it fits my body and is easy to use.

For around 160USD I can try out the bag for one week to see if it works.  I think it’s a great idea!  Particularly if you are looking at spending a significant amount of money.

If you are in the US you can check out http://www.bagborroworsteal.com or if you are in the UK try www.fashionhire.co.uk.

On the topic of bags I was just chatting with a friend of mine who lives in Amsterdam. She has a truly impressive collection of Chloes, Furlas, Balenciagas, etc.

When we met it was in Brussels at work, and I mentioned casually, ‘Nice Balenciaga Motorcycle bag’.  She laughed and replied, ‘Oh, you are the first person outside of the US who has known what this is!’

She was recently mugged in Brussels for the princely sum of 60 euros and the bastards stole her new Marc Jacob’s Stam Bag.

Brutaal!

The Stam - may it rest in peace.

The Stam - may it rest in peace.

We were chatting online tonight and right while we were chatting she purchased a fabulous Chloe bag online via Yoox. The she told me it was my influence!  (which is a big fat lie!)

This is it. Gorgeous colour!

You Tube

youtubelogo

Yesterday our local English language newspaper, Gulf News, posted a poll asking people what they thought about You Tube.  The options were:

  • You Tube should be banned
  • You Tube should be censored
  • You Tube should be left as is
  • You Tube should be used as a tool for free speech
  • I don’t care about You Tube

Because I couldn’t sleep last night I saw it posted in the early morning. The results were clearly in favour of ‘You Tube should be left as is’.

At 10am the votes looked a little different (cough cough).  The overwhelming majority said You Tube should be banned (approx 60% votes). The rest of the results remained distributed in much the same manner as they had been earlier in the morning.

Now, why would that be I wonder?
