ABU DHABI // A dramatic fall in traffic accidents this week has been directly linked to the three-day disruption in BlackBerry services. In Dubai, traffic accidents fell 20 per cent from average rates on the days BlackBerry users were unable to use its messaging service. In Abu Dhabi, the number of accidents this week fell 40 per cent and there were no fatal accidents.
...especially after the recent death of Theyab Awana.
BlackBerry cuts made roads safer, police say

Dozens of graceful wooden dhows crowd the wharf, built as they have for centuries with high sterns and low, curving sheer lines. Boats come and go daily, piled with stacks of wire fish traps, each usually spending a few days at sea before returning with their catch early in the morning hours before dawn.
Enjoy the collection from the National Geographic.

"Purist design combined with high-end materials: The iconic style credo of the Porsche Design luxury brand is reflected at its best in the brand new Shisha. As part of the Porsche Design World Collection the Shisha will come to the worldwide Porsche Design stores from end of July. It will be available with immediate effect exclusively at the lately opened Porsche Design shop-in-shop at the world famous Harrods department store in London, Knightsbridge."
Who knows if this is the most expensive shisha (I'm sure there are some diamond encrusted ones somewhere)- but it certainly is a new age of shisha, and may even become the shisha to have.
Have you seen on yet?
And if you do smoke, smoke responsibly....

Ok, it's not Rio de Janeiro. Nor is it London or Mumbai or Hong Kong. But it's certainly not soulless. Dubai is full of people who know how to have a good time (and most certainly do have a good time) and it's also full of people who prefer the quiet life. It's home to hundreds of nationalities and multiple income groups. Babies are born and elderly people die in Dubai every day. It's not a perfect city, but then again no place in the world is perfect. It's a real, living environment, and perhaps ironically, is filled with expatriates who came here from places that you probably think of having 'soul' because the money is good in Dubai, the streets are safe, crime is minimal, the city is spotlessly clean. Many of these expatriates cry when they have to return to their home countries.

What's the product? - it's a range of USB hub monitors, that help clear your desk of messy cables.They include a wireless USB 2.0 dongle that connects to a USB port on the portable computing device. The monitor then apparently ‘comes alive’ if your computer is within 3 feet of the ‘Central Station’ and what’s more is that you can plug desktop peripherals such as a keyboard and mouse into it.
The thing about it is that this is a global problem - everyone has wires that gets in the way - and thus Samsung are smart in targeting people - all people globally. Also, humour is global....
