I’m in the process of making my own business card since I don’t have one yet, but instead of having traditional business card I’m working on a smart one that supports NFC. If you don’t know what NFC is all about, then let me briefly explain; it stands for Near Filed Communication and it allows people to share media files, data, URLS, phone numbers, emails… etc. instantly by tapping any NFC-Enabled devices together. All new smart phones come with NFC-option like Samsung Galaxy S III, BlackBerry, Windows phone, and I’m sure Apple will include it in their upcoming IOS 6 update.
A business card with NFC stores all your information like email, mobile, website, phone, address, P.O Box…etc. and can share them with anyone by simply tapping the business card with his phone or any other NFC-enabled device so all your data will be saved on his device, futuristic. The awesomeness doesn’t end here, imagine you are swimming in the pool or exercising in the gym and wearing a small NFC bracelet that has all your contacts stored so you can share them with anyone near you.
I’m sure NFC technology will change many things in our daily lives, we can use it to pay with our mobile phones or access data from civil ID cards or passports, the possibilities are limitless.

Do you recall my post about Al Manshar Mall to be demolished? A blog visitor has sent me a reply saying that Al Manshar Mall may probably be replaced with a new huge touristic project called, Khabary. I remember I first heard about Khabary project back in 2006 but works did not start back then and company had financial problems, but I overheard the project may kick-start again.
[Watch on YouTube]
Khabary is a future city that will include buildings, covered pedestrian areas designed to lower outdoor temperature by 10 degrees, a big mall, 15,000 parking spaces with a monorail, cafe’s, 5 star hotel, entertainment facilities, hospital, and much more. Its too big for the location of Al Manshar Mall but I’ll contact the company on Sunday to get latest updates.

On my way to work this early morning I saw this billboard on King Fahad high, it reads “Here Begins the Future Kuwait” with a sketch for the planned Sheikh Jaber Bridge project, I’m not exactly sure what they meant with that but it seems its a PR thing to help showing that they’re working.
Later I saw on the paper the same ad with the current projects handled by Ministry of Public Work but I’m wondering if they can really complete the Metro Project and new Kuwait airport as planned, I consider them to the be the most vital projects that we need.
