Starlink Direct to Cell is The Future of Phones & Networks

First Starlink revolutionized the internet where people can have access anywhere in the world. For me, it was one of the best experiences ever because I got high speed internet in an area where I was barely getting 7 MB. The setup was so simple and It started by having Starlink device and a router and that is basically it. Now the technology is going to be on a total different level where Starlink will activate direct to cell in 2025. I can’t wait for this day to come where I can have a signal and internet anywhere in the globe, and I mean anywhere whether in the north pole, in the middle of the sea or dessert, or anywhere else. People will be using their regular phones, but their network provider should work with Starlink. I honestly don’t know which company will be the first to offer such a service, but I assume it will be Zain for being the most innovative in Kuwait. I hope that Zain become one of the pioneers to do that partnership with Starlink.


The image above shows the way it works between the cellular company and Starlink. It doesn’t seem very complex, so I hope we get it as soon as possible. What I am currently doing when I travel is use Zain roaming in addition to a local sim of the country that I am visiting. I use 2 sim cards at the same time and turn on data switching where my Samsung Z Fold switch automatically between the two sim cards and use the sim card that is getting a better signal. Sometimes I still don’t get good signal in some places when I travel, so Starlink direct to Cell will solve all my issues.

Where To Pre-Order Playstation Portal in Kuwait

I was wishing for a new PSP for a very long time, and when I saw the Playstation Portal, I thought that was the new Steam Deck and Nintendo Switch competitor. Sadly it is a remote play device that plays game via PS5, and it isn’t a stand alone device. Anyway it could be useful to some people, and now in Kuwait some stores started the pre-order phase. I will be listing each store selling Playstation Portal in Kuwait below

Playstation Portal :-

Release date in Kuwait is February 21, 2024. I used the device and it is really impressive, and very useful when someone takes my TV. I go to any room and continue playing, so it is the perfect device to connect at home using the same Wifi network.

Kitco – Bliss Pro Protein Puffs | Product Range From Nostalgia To Innovation

Kitco is one of the most nostalgic products in Kuwait. I  always remember my childhood days when I see Kitco products. There are other nostalgic products such as KDD, FICO, Petra, and more. Seeing Kuwaiti companies innovate makes me happy, and especially when I see a company that relates to my childhood. Now Kitco followed the footsteps on the innovative company Pro Life that created the protein puffs segment. I haven’t tried the product yet but I will receive the samples either today or tomorrow. I will taste the product and update the feedback.

Update: I tried it and it wasn’t the taste that I personally prefer.

Swiitch – Sell Your Phone At Amazing Prices While Being At Home

Every year I go to Sharq to sell old phones that belongs to me and my family. I usually walk in every single store to check the price for every single phone. I sell all the phones to the store that offer the highest value. The process is so time consuming and annoying, and I know for a fact that they offer very low prices compared to the trade in values I see in the US and other countries. Since I have no option, I end up selling even though I know that I can sell it for more, but when I consider the shipping cost to the US, it isn’t worth it. Now it is no longer the case where I found Swiitch app and it is so easy and convenient.

The process goes as follows:-

1- Download the Swiitch app on iOS / Android

2- Choose the phone you want to sell

3- You will see a price estimate if you have everything and if it is in perfect condition.

4- Uncheck anything that doesn’t apply

5- You will receive a message to confirm the order via Whatsapp

6- Send the address and location

7- Someone will come to your home to check the phone to match the condition you submitted

8- They will take a picture of your Civil ID and let you sign the contract on their phone

9- Lastly they will ask you to send a payment link and they will pay immediately

It was such an easy, fast, and smooth experience. I told my friends and family already, and a family member of mine sold her phone 2 hours after I sold mine. She told me that was the most convenient experience, especially that she doesn’t like to go to the stores in Sharq or Hawali.

Try Swiitch App now and let me know what you think in the comments.


Emirates Delivers The Mail Forwarding Service By Emirates Airlines

Emirates Airlines decided to jump on board to complete with MyUS, Aramex Shop & Ship, and Postshipper. The service is called Emirates Delivers and the service was launched few days ago. They promising to have an edge over the competitors due to their infrastructure advantage. Emirates Delivers will have the lowest prices and the fastest shipping possible due to Emirates Airlines massive fleet and daily flights across the world. They are promising 3-5 business days for deliveries from the US or UK. Free storage will be for 30 days, which isn’t much for me since I am getting 60 days at Postshipper. I haven’t tried it out yet, but I will give it a try and see if it is better than Postshipper or not, because so far I am very happy with Postshipper. Once I try it, I will post a review of the service.

Official Playstation Store is Opening in Assima Mall in Kuwait

The official Playstation store is opening in Assima Mall in the 2nd floor. I was wondering how come Playstation is opening their own store, but it seemed that it is Game Store, the company that owns the rights for Playstation in Kuwait that is opening this store. I think this is a great move, and I hope they sell Playstation Gear products which I usually buy from the US. Buying Playstation Gear products were easy when I was living in the US, but now I struggle because they don’t ship their products to companies like MyUS or Postshipper. The coolest products in my opinion are the collectable ones and the watches. I liked the limited edition watches for Nathan Drake from Uncharted and Joel from Last of Us.

Anker Prime – New Generation of Power Banks

I always travel with my Anker 737 Power Bank. At 24K mAh, I cover everything I need from an extra charge for my laptop to my phone. Few weeks ago I was traveling on Lufthansa, and apparently, the 24K mAh requires an approval, because their maximum is 20K. Few other airlines have the same exact rule, so it isn’t convenient for me. I didn’t want to change the cool Anker 737 Power Bank because it charges up to 140W and it has a screen that shows the input and output wattage per slot. Now things have changed when Anker released their new power banks that are even more powerful and charges up to 250W. This is the 3 new Anker prime power banks.

The one I went with is the 200W one so I can travel freely without worrying. Even though I am going for a smaller power bank, I can live with it when it comes to travel. In Kuwait, I have to get the larger one which is 27,650 mAh, because I need more charge, so I will order the largest one from Amazon later on. I am not sure when they will be released in Kuwait, so I am not sure if I can wait until then. To know more about the new prime power banks, check the below table.

Anker Prime 250-watt Power Bank

250W 2 USB-C 1 USB-A $179.99

Anker Prime 200-watt Power Bank

200W 2 USB-C 1 USB-A $129.99

Anker Prime 130-watt Power Bank

Review : Starlink Satellite Internet by SpaceX

I have been using Starlink by SpaceX for the past 2 weeks, and I am very happy with the product. I was suffering big time from the internet in Scotland, because I was using 5G internet. Fiber optics is the best solution and I can get 1GB, but I don’t need yearly commitment, so I was stuck with the 4G internet. The speeds I was getting were so bad where I have to wait for everyone to sleep so I can upload some files to my Dropbox and the maximum speed is 20 MB. The usual speed is 1.5 to 7 MB which is still not sufficient for my use. I remembered Starlink and that it could be a solution, because it is flexible and I can pause the plan anytime I want. For the residential plan the price was very attractive and the device cost 450 GBP and the internet service cost 75 GBP per month. When I added everything to cart it said that it will take 2-3 weeks, so I was OK with that. I submitted the order and in 2 days I received it, and that was really impressive. I was surprised that the package was much smaller than what I had in mind, and the setup was so simple. In the package there is a very small satalite and a router, and it took me 30 minutes to setup the entire thing. Now I am enjoying speeds from 18 MB to 235 MB, and most of the time I get about 80 MB. It is much better than the previous average of 4 MB. I am very happy with my experience with Starlink and I see it as the future of internet.

EPIC The New Puffs by Drops

Today I tried a very unique product that is very new and I consider it a must try. EPIC puffs by Drops and it is developed by Cruncho, which is the company behind Pro Life Pro Puffs. The cheese one was really good, but the really impressive one that I will buy all the time is the sweet corn. The sweet corn taste exactly like the Pop Pop sweet corn that comes in golden foil and it comes with 3 big pieces. These days I see it mostly in Gargean events but not on daily basis like back in the day. You can see the picture below

I am seeing more innovation that ever in Kuwait when it comes to products development. Hectare’s, Pro life, Oda, and more are very innovative and cool products. Epic should be available very soon or already is in places that I am not aware of. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Google Pixel 6 & 7 Pro Finally Get VoLTE for Zain in Kuwait

I have been a huge fan of Google Pixel, but I stopped using them because they didn’t support VoLTE and 5G in Kuwait. I decided to switch to Samsung Z Fold because of that and now I got used to the Fold. After one of the recent updates, Google is officially supporting VoLTE for Zain. I haven’t tried STC yet, so I am not sure, but Ooredoo doesn’t support it so far. I hope Ooredoo support the Pixel it in the end, I would love to switch to Google Pixel Fold, but I am not convinced yet because of the thick bezels. My current issues with Samsung Fold is that it no longer open 180 degrees, and that happened with me twice so far. The hinges are not very durable because I have a thick cover, yet the phone hinges get damaged after small drops. I will wait to check out Z Fold 5, and see if I should upgrade or not.
