A Zain deal for Syriatel ?

Is Zain Eying on Syriatel? Well, it looks like the leading Kuwaiti telecom operator has some greater expansion plans, as rumours are surfacing about a Zain deal to include Syriatel & the wonderful world to embrace Syria next.

Zain LogoWell, that would look like a natural move, since Zain has, Jordan (ex-Fastlink), Bahrein, Lebanon (mtc touch), Saudi, Iraq (mtc Atheer), Yemen, Sudan, in total 22 countries (14 in Africa & 8 in the ME) already under its umbrella.

One great advantage already existing in Africa, an initiative that has not been done anywhere else in the world -- where international calls are made at local rates across 12 countries -- could benefit Middle Eastern users, since the wonderful world of Zain is becoming part of one connected network.

Updates will follow...

In An Absolut World

In an Absolut World
An Absolute vision must definitely be shaped by the widest spectrum of artistic colours & flavours in order to refine one's own. In an Absolut World...Things should, however, look widely different....

Launched in late August 2007, ABSOLUT Vodka invited everyone to share their vision of what an Absolut World should be.

"In an Absolut World' ...aims to be the world's biggest community of visionaries -- a dynamic place where everyone has the chance to rate, comment on, even interact with and improve the visions of everyone else. It is about engaging people everywhere, challenging them to see the planet with fresh eyes and make it a better, more inspiring, more Absolut world.

Absolut has reached out to select up-and-coming visionaries in the arts, media, entertainment and other fields to engage them to express their own clever and daring solutions for a less-than-ideal world.
Soon, very soon, several global heavyweight visionaries will also chime in with their visions of a world that's a little more Absolut.
Check out Absolut visions before it's too late & ideally share your own.

Apple commands you

Who'd have guessed what lies behind 'command'?
We're talkin' here about the command key for Apple computers...
Well, well well... Steve Jobs has it for you...

"It’s difficult to come up with a small icon that means “command”, and we didn’t think of anything right away. Our bitmap artist Susan Kare had a comprehensive international symbol dictionary and she leafed through it, looking for an appropriate symbol that was distinctive, attractive and had at least something to do with the concept of a menu command. Finally she came across a floral symbol that was used in Sweden to indicate an interesting feature or attraction in a campground. She rendered a 16 x 16 bitmap of the little symbol and showed it to the rest of the team, and everybody liked it. Twenty years later, even in OS X, the Macintosh still has a little bit of a Swedish campground in it."

Indeed, this sign is used across Nordic countries to mark genera
l sight places, like old buildings, churches and castles.
VoilĂ ... One mystery revealed...
