 In total contradiction with my previous posting (Egyptian Army), and while driving in one of Cairo’s street I saw this truck loaded with around 12 new BMW 5 series bodies. And when I asked about the reason, I was informed that BMW has 3 huge factories in Egypt, and these cars were being transported from the BMW car body factory to the BMW accessories & finninshing factory. These factories are producing the new 3 & 5 series for now, the 7 serie will follow soon. Besides Jeep & Mercedes have also factories in Egypt!!!

This is Weird

September 26th, 2007 No comments

A 15-year-old boy from the Urals suffered acute frostbite after riding the wing of a Boeing-737 plane on a two-hour flight from Perm to

Moscow, Russian radio station Mayak reported on Monday.

After clinging on for the entire 1300-kilometer (808-mile) flight to

Vnukova Airport, the boy, named Andrei, collapsed onto the tarmac. His arms and legs were so severely frozen that rescuers were at first unable to remove his coat and shoes, the radio station said.

The airport did not confirm the report. “We have no information on this,” the Vnukovo press service told RIA Novosti.

However,

Moscow‘s air and water transport control department said the radio’s claim was true.

Again, but this time in Russia. The hotel charge for one hour of internet connection was US$23.00. And the only place in the room to “steal ” a free flying connection is the window. If you move 10 cms backward…you will loose it.

So we spent three nights on that window…it was very roamntic…. From Russia with lovvvvvveeeee!!!!

Microsoft May Buy Facebook Stake

Microsoft Reportedly Discussing Possible Facebook Investment

Setting the stage for a possible bidding battle, Microsoft Corp. is mulling an investment in Facebook Inc. that would value the rapidly growing online hangout at $10 billion or more, according to a report published Monday.  

Citing unnamed people familiar with the matter, The Wall Street Journal said Microsoft is holding preliminary discussions that could culminate in a $300 million to $500 million investment in Facebook, a

Palo Alto social-networking site founded just 3 1/2 years ago.In exchange for the money, Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft would receive up to a 5 percent stake in privately held Facebook, which has previously raised nearly $41 million from venture capitalists and other individual investors.Facebook declined to comment on the reported discussions as did Microsoft, which branded the report as “rumor and speculation.” An outright sale of Facebook is considered unlikely. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s 23-year-old co-founder and chief executive, has repeatedly expressed his desire to remain independent. He rejected a $1 billion acquisition offer from Yahoo Inc. last year. Facebook also has been exploring whether to raise more money from venture capitalists to help expand its current payroll of roughly 300 employees and finance other parts of its ambitious expansion plans. With more than $100 million in annual revenue, Facebook is believed to be a prime candidate for an initial public offering of stock next year or in 2009. If Facebook’s talks with Microsoft heat up, it could draw online search leader Google Inc. to the negotiating table, too.

Happy 25th Birthday, Emoticon

September 19th, 2007 No comments

emoticon.gif

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the first usage of an emoticon, a simple smiley face first used by a Carnegie Mellon professor on an old school bulletin board system. It turns out that the emoticon was not just an afterthought, but a much discussed idea addressing a problem early users of the system were having in separating sarcastic comments from serious ones. Professor Scott Fahlman proposed a smiley face to indicate joking and an upside down one to indicate unhappiness in a thread (captured below).

The original message with the first smiley had been lost for years, but a rather intensive research effort lead to its recovery. Fahlman details the invention and the “dig” to find the original message on his page.
