Hand written signatures are an outdated concept and they must be stopped.

They change over time. Not all people can be expected to replicate their signatures EXACTLY every time. I admit that some people may be capable of this, but I'm not. Certain banks insist on an extreme level of precision and it is ridiculous.

If the level of documentation is that important then it must require a thumbprint instead (or as well). Or something that is far more consistent than a precision scribble.

This isn't about literacy, a lot of signatures of high up officials that I have seen are nonsensical doodles. Not a single alphabet can be identified in them.

Why no good covers Samsung!? (device: Samsung Galaxy Tab S T8050 16GB (4G/Call) 10.5-inch Tablet)

My pressing gripe with this device is that it has no good covers. The ones that ARE available are overpriced and poorly designed.

In my local online superstore, there are currently only three options

  • the slim cover
  • the book cover
  • the bluetooth keyboard cover

The slim cover
This is a simple flip cover. Given the hefty 16 KD (54USD) price tag, the least they could've given us is a soft cloth-like interior that could keep the screen clean.

The material here is like a textured plastic feel that does nothing to keep the screen clean. All it does is serve its one purpose - cover.

Given the way it's designed, you can forget about using your device comfortably Have a look at that picture I've provided. Imagine using the device. Now, imagine, for what-ever reason, you decide you'd like to take a photo. You're gonna look like a bigger fool with that cover hanging stupidly under your device.

After 2 weeks of use, I dumped it for the even more expensive book cover :(

quality: 4/5
value for money: 1/5
satisfaction:  2/5

absolutely not.

The book cover

While it is far better than the slim cover, it has one major flaw, it's design. When compared the cover available to the ipad, you can't help but feel sorely disappointed by this one. Using it is always a clumsy affair and it makes the user seem like a fumbling buffoon (regardless of whether they really are one).

quality: 4/5
design: 2/5
satisfaction: 3/5
value for money: 2/5
Not unless you have no other options but the slim cover version.


weird chinese like text on my browser tab

This is the first time I have ever seen anything like it. I have no idea what it is.

Google is my world

I rely so heavily on google.

EVERY single aspect of my life has now been affected by its services.

This is not a good thing.

I came across this interesting quote the other day.

Science progresses one funeral at a time.

I feel that this quote applies to society in general. The way we look at ourselves and the way we treat one another.
