Was the iPhone 6 Copied

Published by on March 2nd, 2015

Well a definite Yes on the score cards …

Design

It’s the same …

B-w1QOMUAAAygHX

– power button, volume nobs, charge location, volume holes (Oh no the S6 has two set of holes)

– What else, same aluminum cover, and similar antenna breaks

– Oh there is more, identical speaker cut and earphone place (same earphone jacks too)

Features

Introducing mobile payment “Samsung Pay” .. Oh wait, we had that before didn’t we #ApplePay

and no more micro SD cards or removable battery (what Apple was bragged to lack over Samsung)

Matching battery life time

Battery life comparison: Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Apple iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus

Not to take away from its enhanced features, the S6 has some advantages over the 6 month old iPhone 6

– Enhanced screen resolution 577ppi vs 401ppi on the iPhone

– Enhanced RAM storage (3GB versus 1GB)

– Enhanced back and front cameras (16Mp and 8Mp respectively)

Full comparative details here

Conclusion

It is every company’s right to copy designs maybe to a certain extent but this comes after “if we all well remember” the fact that Samsung mocked Apple heavily over the new iPhone 6 design and features only to come up with replicas.

A revival of the Samsung Apple legal patents will soon be witnessed.

Expect videos to come out soon …

In all cases, welcome back to 2007

Another Stolen Tune

Published by on February 28th, 2015

It is not the first time that we run “unfortunately” into completely stolen tunes.

Skipping the quality of voices and nature of songs, I am sure we do not lack talented #Lebanese composers with so many great names at stake.

Latest “Completely” stolen song is “jazirat el 7obb” by Melissa taken “copy paste” from the 2012 “Greek singer” Despina Vandi song To Nisi from the album Allaxa

Extracts of the two Video Clips Below

A friend of mine mentioned that the guy is from “Wazzan” family living in #Koraytem area and sometimes lights “بخور” in the middle of the road

About Co-workers

Published by on February 25th, 2015

There are numerous types of coworkers … of which we recite

The Nerd Weirdo

No matter where you meet them, they are already part of another dimension. Avoid arguing with them in a meeting. “You will Loose”

The Noisy people

They want to tell you every detail of the past 24 hours and they want to make sure you listen

The Lover

That pops everywhere you go, invents subjects to talk and discuss and spend time with you. It really depends on your status for the next move but a word of advice “Don’t *** where you eat”

The “know it all”

whether you are discussing a rocket science subject or how to deliver babies in a car at rush hour, they will just have their say.

The “Mad3oum”

They just sit all day playing candy crush, chatting, making calls, etc. Doomed if you have one of those in your team.

and of course there is You

Unless of course you are already one of the five above

On The Lebanese Monday

Published by on February 16th, 2015

Another week starts, Another Monday … who likes Mondays anyways.

No one wants to wake up early, plus work, and traffic … not much really to like.

Adding an extra twist, in #Lebanon you have to be ready for more

.

– On getting stuck because of a protest (“Moyawmin”, “Casino”, “Hospital”, “Trucks”, etc)

– On being flooded in a rainy day, because our roads are state of the art

– On Van #4 and taxi drivers

– On parents dropping kids at school (lezim tbousou 12 bawseh w tsof b noss el tari2)

.

… and in the end after that long hated day at work

– On traffic and traffic and traffic

– On getting caught at 6:00PM in the elevator (la yiji el eshtirak)

– On the worst three hours of media on TV #7akiJeles, #LelNasher and #1544

 

On the Lebanese Monday countless stories of hatred …

Grab a drink and relax

Here comes the “Terrible Tuesday
