People are excited to get an iPad but I can’t really see a reason to buy one, specially not for 999$ from Lebanon. The only time I wish I had one is when I am going to the bathroom since it has a bigger screen then my HTC Hero so it would be easier to browse the web on it. I don’t think I’ll ever use it to watch videos or just browse the net from anywhere else. Any laptop or notebook would be better at that in my opinion.

Google Knows Everything?!
Found those quotes by Rafik Hariri on google news after the football match our politicians played! I guess google missed a thing or two in 2005!
From this error I guess what google news does when looking for quotes is try to find a full name for some last name that is followed by a quote. For example all the articles contain: “Hariri said: blabla”. Since most of the articles are from foreign news outlets they have a summary on where does Saad Hariri come from containing “Rafik Hariri died in a …” so what google does is that it looks for the full name of a person inside a bunch of articles and assumes he’s the one giving opinions.

Weird Tiny Worm
I found this very small worm near the plants outside my office window and took a video of it moving on a POST IT note! notice how it moves and how tiny it is!
I just installed a new theme for the blog. I am going to personalize it this week end. Hopefully I am going to restart posting more frequently.
Since I finished my university studies (But still doing my Masters) and started a new job I am finding a lot of stuff to write about so I hope you’ll enjoy my up-coming post.
