The core of a dark planetoid hosts a primordial soup of microscopic life. Within the neural pathways of these organic compounds, intelligence is born from the primitive drive for survival. Each stage of Primordial has been designed and animated by separate artists and sequentially stitched together as one evolving timeline.

I don’t really use Bluetooth speakers or docking things for listening to music, but then I saw this really cheap speaker online and I decided to get it.
the Inateck Bluetooth speaker is a really good looking speaker, it comes in a black/red color pattern with a soft rubbery matte finish, the look and feel of the speaker is great and I really loved the design as far as the first impression.
the only bad thing I could say about the device is that it can get dirt on it a bit easily and also attracts a bit of fingerprints, it weighs a little bit more than what you’d expect from a tiny set of speakers.
you can expect to get a little dirt on it if you use it outdoors
2) Sound Performance
like I said earlier I don’t have much experience with the portable bluetooth speakers, I have tried the UE Boom before but the UE Boom is a much bigger and way more expensive speaker, honestly I think the Inateck does a great job and is super loud, its really clear as well.
the weakness in the Inateck BTSP-10P is that the base is weak, and the surround is limited due to the unit’s small size.
3) Battery Life
I only used the speakers for about a week and I had to charge it twice, the battery is announced to be 15hours but with my use its more like 13 or maybe even less if you keep it on high volume, generally I’m really happy with the battery life and it charges relatively fast.
the Inateck BTSP-10P is a great pair of speakers, the small size, the battery life and the nice sound quality makes you wonder why this speaker is only $50, I would recommend it for anyone who needs small powerful portable speakers with a cheap price.
personally I bought it because I loved the design and I wasn’t expecting much but after I got it I was blown away by the quality, and I would like to add one more thing, its really easy to sync to and there aren’t any complicated settings or buttons on the device.
The news were all over the web on the new MacBook announcement.
but after watching tons of video and reading around online (note: I’m not a fan of Apple) I have a conflicted opinion on the new MacBook, there are many aspects of this device which I like, but it seems its in a weird place among gadgets in the market.
1) Design & Size:
the Size of the MacBook is kinda small, but its bigger than most (if not all) tablets on the market, but its a direct competitor to devices like the Surface Pro 3 and the 12 inch Dell XPS.
of course the MacBook excels in being the thinnest of all its competitors and its even 3mm thinner than the Air, another thing Apple users might not like about the design is that the logo won’t light up, I suppose due to thinness of the device, Its not really a big deal, is it ?
Dat Gold though!
the MacBook has a gorgeous 12 inch retina display, with a high resolution, great colors and a weird 16:10 ratio, not many laptops come with something this good, not at 12 inch at least, the battery life is said to last up to 10 hours, which is great even if it was 8 or 6 on heavy use, its impressive, I’m not happy about the lack of ports, but it has its pros and cons (mostly making Apple tons of $$$ on extensions).
including cool butterfly keys and clickless innovative track pad
on the other hand everything else about the new MacBook outright sucks, its made for browsing, basic office work and media consumption, you cannot expect to do video editing or gaming on this machine because of its tiny chipset and low powered processor, but as a plus the hardware makes the device really thin and doesn’t need special ventilation to cool down, which makes me compare it to some tablets and maybe a couple ultrabooks that use passive cooling rather than air cooling.
HOLY SHIT! I’d rather buy an actual laptop with the price of this thing.
Yes I know its Apple, and its technically an ultrabook (more like a glorified NetBook).
but hell to the No.
this small skinny gadget starts at $1299 (380KD)… NOPE.
I thought the Surface Pro 3 was expensive, but at least the surface has a much more powerful processor and a touchscreen which may justify the price, the MAIN problem I have about this laptop is what segment of the market would buy something small and very light weight, but bigger and heavier than an iPad. that behaves and is used like any Apple laptop but with really low performance and a high price.
I like the technologies that they put into making this Ultrabook really thin, I would even get one if I could get it at a reasonable price, but knowing apple, this will never Happen…
and now with the rant about the shitty 480p Camera,
BMO (pronounced beemo) is a cute little robot character from a show called “Adventure Time” and he is supposed to be a small c0mputer/video game console, he is generally depicted as a side character to the protagonists of the show, Finn and Jake and he mostly stays at home rather than go out on adventures with our heroes.
so someone decided to make the cute little robot using some 3D Printed parts and a RaspberryPi internals.
the finished BMO is totally adorable and is really cool, the Specs are as follows:
Overall size: 4″ X 5″ X 1.75″
CPU: Raspberry Pi A+
Operating System: RetroPie
Display: 3.5″ TFT
Power: 7.4V 2200 mAh Li-Ion
Controls: Fully set of SNES (D-pad, 4 actions, start/select, L/R) buttons built around a Teensy 2.0 HID device
Sound: Stereo Speakers with slide potentiometer volume control and headphone jack
this is the on of the most important comparisons of the year, the two flagships have been announced and are on the floor at this years MWC exhibit in Barcelona and the guys at PocketNow made this early hands-on comparison.
there’s a lot of details discussed here but I’m sure there’s more to say once the devices are on sale, I am leaning towards the HTC more because I’m kinda biased (I LOVE HTC).
I love seeing the hype on phones and gadgets but sometimes it gets a bit too much, don’t you agree?
If you like typing on a touch screen and want this feel on your computer,
this is a keyboard for you.
the Cool Leaf Keayboard (ver. 2) is basically a touch screen with a mirror finish and some level of water resistance, pictures of this keyboard all over the web but I have finally found it and now there’s a version 2 of the Keyboard.
in the Ad video they mention some parts of this are concept and by that I think they mean its just a Keyboard, the video kinda gives false hope of cool DJ or Video game Layout, but since its essentially a touch screen this is technically possible with some software.
I really think this is a just a good looking keayboard, but its really more of a gimmick and not a comfortable day-to-day use kind of Keyboard, what kind of keyboard do you prefer ? would you pay nearly $300 for a touch keyboard on the PC? leave a comment below on what you think.
according to their site this launcher came out 3 years ago in feb 29th, 2012. I started using it around summer that year and have been using it ever since, I have changed devices many times and tried newer different launchers but I’ve always went back to TSF Launcher, It kind of gave me a consistent user experience on many different Android devices, the customization is great and the gimmicks are plenty, and the best part is that the development of this launcher is continuous, they have released a ver.3 recently and I quickly found myself adapting and falling in love all over again with TSF 3D.
although I have been using the HTC since october 2013, and the HTC Sense UI with Blinkfeed are pretty impressive, yet the customization made me go back to the safety of TSF UI and their cool interactive widgets.
the biggest down side to TSF is that its $15+ but I have to say that since I paid this amount a long time ago, It’s well worth it, and the reason I’m writing this post about it now is because they currently have a %40 off, so check it out and make your Android Device really cool looking.
I dont really know what to write here, I’m just happy to be in this wonderful country, on a glorious day with amazing weather, this is a day where all Kuwaiti people show their gratitude towards this country.
its not perfect but its better than most, and I can’t explain how fortunate I feel to be a Kuwaiti.
this is a cool video, an art and history project that shows what the most famous Disney princesses would look like if they were historically more accurate, base on what people looked like and wore back in the time and place the stor is supposed to be, do you agree on this list?
Warning: Pocahontas is a little sketchy with her semi topless look, might not be suitable for everyone.
Recently I’ve been playing two side scrolling puzzle platforming games.
this is a somewhat popular genre in the recent years with the rise of the indie games, and so I will share with you my experience playing both of these games and I’ll compare and contrast them.
outland is a MetroidVania platformer crossed with a bullet hell shooter (Like Ikaruga), the gameplay is simple and depends on the duality of the character (two colors vs two-opposite colored enemies) with a bunch of platforming and puzzles thrown in.
the boss fights are pretty cool but just like you expect from a platforming adevnture game, its not very hard or unpredictable, its the kind of game that needs skill and some patience to go through.
the design of Outland is beautiful, the color schemes, the backgrounds and even the soundtrack are great for such a seemingly modest game.
I played through this game and I really think its a satisfying game, albeit the final boss fight was nerve-racking.
much like Outland, Deadlight is a game where you mainly have to solve puzzles and fight enemies to advance in the game, but Deadlight is a grey dirty post-apocalyptic game, the backgrounds and character designs are really detailed and beautiful, the atmosphere of the game is very immersive and feels likea horror game, I should also mention the soundtrack is amazing I downloaded it separately.
the gameplay in Deadlight feels more realistic and human, while the hero in Outland was more of a colorful mythical creature than jumps around and can fall from extreme heights without taking damage, this guy on the other hand is a bearded badass who is trying to survive through a zombie infested world, he has stamina and limitation to his physical ability, which augments the survival theme of the game.
The puzzle quality is a bit better in Deadlight but Outland fighting mechanics more fun, in Deadlight you really have to conserve your ammo and stamina and avoid large groups of zombies, while in Outland you kill enemies and absordb their energy to kill more enemies.
The story of Deadlight is somewhat a typical post-apocalypse zombie situation game and Outland is a “legendary tale” kind of storyline with mythical characters and it uses narration instead of a talking character.
I have spent about an hour only in Deadlight so I’m not sure on how much I should give it, but as far as first impressions go, its pretty damn good.
Many people in Kuwait like to go to Dubai, the beautiful country full of activities and rich with a culture similar to Kuwait, I don’t think there’s much I can say because we all know how good Dubai is,
so filmmaker and artist Rob Whitworth made an amazing video on Dubai using various techniques like stop motion and timelapse and he put together a video that represented his first impression of Dubai
I love how this is made and I’m jealous of Dubai because we need someone in Kuwait to do something this creative and show the beauty of Kuwait.
