Dubai Lynx 2010!

This was the first time I ever go to Dubai and all I can say is WOW! I've heard all sorts of stuff about it being overly crowded and fake etc. but no, I really liked it!

I went for the Dubai Lynx awards. The Dubai Lynx is an annual award show for advertising in the Middle East. It was a 4 day event of seminars and workshops (which were excellent) along with the the award show on the 17th. We picked up a bronze for one of our TV commercials, the only win by an agency in Kuwait this year. JWT MENA also picked up the win for Network of the year!

Apparently there were a couple of pictures snapped of me which I didn't know of, check them out at the read link.

Kuwait Speed Cameras for ovi Maps!

I just read Mark's post on 2:48am about being able to find the speed cameras in Kuwait with his Garmin GPS device. He also posted a link to the file with the camera POIs (Points of Interest) which I was able to convert it to a file for Nokia's ovi Maps! You just download the file and send it to your phone, it will list the cameras, then choose Options > Save > All and ta-da, you've got your very own camera radar on your Nokia phone! Get it here!

You see all those stars up there? 137 of those are speed cameras in Kuwait :P

Let's Burger Kuwait Review

Let's not... :P

Windows Live Messenger for Touch Screen Nokia Phones (S60v5)

I had to hard reset my phone a couple of weeks ago after it wouldn't turn on. I have all my contacts backed up on my PC so that was fine, I just had to redownload my apps. When I went to the ovi store to redownload Windows Live Messenger, I noticed that it wasn't available for S60v5 anymore. So I've been searching everywhere for it. I finally found a working version.

Installation takes a good 5+ minutes... but you have to first copy it on to your memory card under the "Installs" folder then run the installation from Settings>Application mgr.>Installation Files otherwise it will install to like 99% then you'll get a frustrating "Installation cancelled" message.

Fully working 100% on the N97 mini.
