The moment that you have all been waiting for is finally here. Korean technology, Samsung, has commenced the sale of its newest and  most advanced smartphone yet. It is currently being sold at a price of 699 euro in Germany, which makes it the most expensive smartphone from Samsung’s stable. 

Now as for the new phone’s features, the Samsung Note 4 comes with a few special ones. The screen display of 5.7 inches has moved from Full High Definition to advanced version Quad HD. This is said to give a better viewing experience when it comes to contrast, colours and density. 

In the Note 4, Samsung has incorporated a multi-function feature on same screen which would allow the users to use different functions on the same screen!

And of course for those eager to know the advancement of the camera features, the Note 4 has a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera which goes up to a 120 degree wide angle shot.

What is our main concern when it comes to our mobile phones? Yes it is the battery! The representatives of Samsung said that Note 4 has lower power consumption and increased battery life of 7.5% compared to the model before. Another new battery feature is that this phone can be charged 50% within only 30 minutes.

And last but not least, Samsung has introduced the new feature of snap. Snap is a feature that includes an S Pen that would be used for writing on the Note 4. Snap also includes the users ability to select a portion of an image or text on the screen of the phone and share it with a person via any application in which one can share an image or text on.

The Samsung Note 4 is expected to be available for sale globally in October.

olsen twins

 

The talented Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen designed their first wedding dress for their long time friend, stylist Molly Fishkin, who tied the knot with, producer/director, Asher Levin in Los Angeles just recently. Their dress was featured on this month’s issue of Vogue.

Molly had known Mary-Kate and Ashley for over 15 years, and once she had told them the news of her engagement they immediately said that they wanted to design her wedding dress. Molly of course accepted their offer and was extremely happy with the whole designing process and she expressed that the Olsen’s and their team were very patient and calm throughout every step of the way.

This was Mary-Kate and Ashley’s first time designing a wedding dress, and after looking at the pictures of the masterpiece, I dare say that it will definitely not be their last!

Everyone seems to be Snapchatting these days!

snapchat 1

So how did this popular app come about and by who? Here are the deets.

It all began when these young men met at Stanford University in 2008, Evan Spiegal, Reggie Brown and Bobby Murphy.

One day, Brown had this idea where he wished that the pictures that he was sending this girl would just disappear, and that is when it all sparked.. They all started working on and coming up with the logo, which is still that same one used today, during the Summer of 2011. It was originally called “Pictaboo” and was finally launched in July 2011.

The team of then called “Pictaboo” got into a dispute about the name order that would appear on the technology patent as well as the equity splits. Evan and Bobby then decided to boot out Brown from the company and changed its name to “Snapchat” in the Fall of 2011!

High school kids got hooked on the app and by April 2012, the number of users grew to 100,000 users. Evan dropped out of University just a few weeks before he was meant to graduate once he got all the money put in his bank. Kind of a shame but oh well!

In February 2013, Brown, who was the guy that they basically kicked out of the company, filed a law suit against Snapchat for Breach of Joint Venture. This law suit is still going on now and they have yet to make a decision or settle!

So anyways, Snapchat got so popular that Facebook offered three billion dollars for Snapchat, however obviously they refused the offer as they were doing really good on their own! To prove this, by May 2013, the number of users went up to….150 million users!!

nutelllaaa crepe

How would you like this as a dessert after your futoor? Oh believe me I know, I mean look at all that nutella in there.. Well It’s pretty simple to make and I will be taking you step by step.

Firstly let’s get the ingredients, you will be needing:

1 cup of flour

2 eggs

1 cup of milk

2 teaspoons of white sugar

2 teaspoons of butter

2 teaspoons of vanilla

1/4 teaspoon of salt

Now for the Crepe filling, you will need 3 medium bananas sliced and as for the nutella…I’m just going to leave that for you to decide!

Steps:

1. Mix the eggs, vanilla, sugar, salt and milk really good together in a bowl.

2. When you see bubbles add the flour and the melted butter! Now mix together until it looks creamy and beige.

3. Now you’d want to melt some butter on a pan and add the mixture and cook for a few minutes in low heat. Don’t forget to flip it to cook it on the other side!

4. Now it’s time for you to fill ‘em up!!

 

Enjoy!

Ramadan is the time of the year where everyone should be praying but instead we’re all watching as many TV shows as we can fit in! Now that we’re in the last 10 days of this holy month and for those of you that are non-Muslims, the last 10 days of Ramadan are the most special and even more blessed than the rest. Part of this is because one of these days (the exact date is unknown) is Layet El-Qader which is the night that the Quran was revealed to the Messenger PBUH and this night is better than 1000 months (yes, months – not days).

So for those of you who have never heard of it or just never watched it, try Khawater. It is a great learning show and will open your eyes to so many issues and relates them back to Islam and how we should be as good Muslims and good people. If you watch it on YouTube, it has English subtitles!

You can find all this seasons episodes at the link below.

I’m sure you have all seen this hashtag and are probably posting it all over Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, you name it. The people of Gaza are yet again trying to survive Israel’s attacks with all their will and power. There have been many losses of civilians, families and loved ones that we must all dedicate our prayers to. May God be with them and help them get through this.

 

palestine 2

 

Just a couple of days ago, a group of people attended the peaceful gathering for Palestine that was held near the American Embassy. The people of Kuwait gath ered around with signs that spoke out what needed to be said and lit candles as a sign of prayer and peace wished upon the Palestinians. It was truly a peaceful night.

 

It’s hard to just watch and realize that what we are able to do to help is limited, however events such as these are great acts that we must try and do more of! Keep on posting updated news and raising awareness about what is happening on all social networks and media. Most importantly, keep those innocent victims in your prayers.

If you are like everyone else, then I’m sure you watch Game of Thrones.  But if you are like me then you were utterly disgusted after the last episode. To be honest, the sight of Oberyn Martel’s face completely destroyed on screen was one that I could have done without.

Even the book didn’t find it necessary to describe it THAT graphically, so why do producers feel that we need to see such things? What is your take on it?

Last night, Apple unveiled its new iOS8 at the WWDC. It has so many great features that iPhone users have been anxiously awaiting, but for me the one I am looking forward to most is that Siri will be hands-free!

iOS 8 also taught Siri some new tricks. With it’s new Shazam integration, Siri ID will identify any song in earshot, and it can dim your lights or turn up your thermostat through the new smart home framework. There are backend changes too, like streaming voice recognition and improved language support, but the big news is that you’ll be able to call up the program without even touching your phone. Just say the words “Hey, Siri” and it’ll appear automatically, similar to “OK, Google” in Chrome.
