Let’s work together to save water

I should have posted this article on the 15th, but I only knew about it this morning. I guess better late than never. This year’s awareness campaign is about water, which has become a global concern on all levels.

So this post is about Blog Action Day and how it brings all bloggers to talk about the same topic on october 15 every year. It’s very interesting how social media can create a worldwide awareness and help make a change. So here I am, spreading the word and trying to make  a difference by signing their petition.

The virtual way to get opinions on your outfit

Gone are the days when shopping with the girlfriends was the most exciting thing to do. People find it easier and less time consuming to shop online in order to get better deals, even though it’s not as much fun as actually walking around till your legs can’t carry you anymore 😉 It turns out, you can even get online opinions for your outfits, shoes, bags, accessories …

It’s weird that the internet nowadays could potentially become a substitute for girlfriends’ opinions! Well, when it comes to it, nothing can replace my girls. So this whole online thing doesn’t work for me 😀

Whining took another level:now you can whine online too!

I whine, he whines she whines and everyone keeps whining. We ( as in I don’t know who exactly ), whine through blogging, smsing, facebooking, e-mailing, foursquaring, twittering and the list goes on… But just now, I discovered there is a website especially for whining! All you do is whine anonymously about anything, read about other people’s whining and even comment on “whines”.. As if all the other social networks weren’t enough…

If you are interested in whining, or would like to read about other people’s whining, click here.

What’s a Blackberry without its service?

It all started as a rumor here in Dubai, but I guess it’s official now. DU, the telecommunication  company in Dubai, sent out the email below to all the DU customers.

Dear Customers,

We have been notified on August 1st 2010 by an instruction from the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of the UAE that certain BlackBerry services will be suspended starting October 11th, 2010.

BlackBerry Email, BlackBerry web browsing, social networking, and instant messaging services on BlackBerry devices that are supported as part of the BlackBerry service, will be suspended.

Customers will be able to continue using their BlackBerry devices for Voice, SMS, MMS and web browsing not using blackberry service as these services will remain unaffected. Other applications which do not use the BlackBerry services will also not be affected.

This is an important decision taken by the Telecommunications Regulatory authority and as a licensed telecom service provider we shall fully comply by this instruction.

Since a number of du customers are BlackBerry subscribers, du will ensure that it provides all its affected customers with an alternative solution that meets their needs with minimal disruption to their services.

In the coming days du will be making an announcement on the full plan and shall inform all customers on the implementation of this alternative plan.

As a reasonable service provider, we have an obligation to always act within the law and the regulations of the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of the UAE, while at the same time, providing our customers with the best possible service.

We will update you regularly on the developments. You can also get further information through our website, call centre, du shops and via advertorials in leading newspapers.

Best Regards
du
