Nissan Patrol is The Best Car Deal I Have Seen in 2020

There are tons of offers at Kuwait car dealerships because of the Corona virus. I have seen offers from Maserati, Lincoln, Kia, Volkswagen, and Nissan. The best deals in my opinion were from Kia, Maserati, and Nissan. The best overall deal is Nissan Patrol which was offered at 14,999 KD. It comes in leather and it has front and back sensors. It comes with 5 years warranty and 4 years of service of 50,000 Kilometers. The reason I liked Nissan Patrol is because the car is one of the popular cars in Kuwait. It is a durable car and it holds value. Let me attach the details of the car I saw.

I was told that the deal is for June, but might be extended to July. I think the deal is very attractive, and it is a good time to buy a car if you need one.

PS4 Pro Fan Noise Fix When Cleaning Out Doesn’t Solve The Problem

When I bought Red Dead Redemption 2, I really couldn’t go beyond Chapter 1 because of my PS4 Pro fan noise. The fan noise was so high that I can’t focus at all even with the volume being high. When I searched online, most of the solutions were about cleaning the PS4 Pro by using a compressed air can and removing the dust. I went and tried that solution and it never worked. The issue was more complexed than that, so when I asked around. I was told that the first model of PS4 Pro has this common problem of fan noise. The reason is because the thermal paste dries up fast with the first model. The fix is simply removing and cleaning the dried thermal paste, and apply new one. The noise dropped by 60% and since then I started playing on my PS4 Pro. There are tons of guides that shows you how to replace the thermal paste on PS4 Pro. Check them out and try this solution if cleaning out doesn’t fix the issue.

Extremely High Demand For Nintendo Switch in Kuwait That Caused Increase in Prices

There is so much demand for video game consoles during the corona crisis. The highest demand is for Nintendo Switch and then Playstation 4. I am so surprised that Nintendo switch cost about $300 which is around 92 KD before the crisis. Now the world wide stock of Nintendo Switch is so low that caused increase in prices due to demand. Before the corona crisis, Nintendo Switch was selling for 115 KD in Kuwait, and sometimes 106 KD + a game. Now the cheapest price I found was 145 KD at AlFuhod and the most expensive is 169.9 at Xcite. I asked my friends who own stores in Rehab Comples about the reason that Nintendo Switch is selling out. They said parents need to keep their kids quite at this time since they are spending time with them much more than ever. Playstation 4 was at the end of cycle so it isn’t worth the investment right now and Playstation 5 is releasing at the end of the year.

iPhone Stuck in Recovery Mode Loop & Error 14

This is one of the worst days ever when my aunt woke up and her iPhone is stuck in recovery mode as the picture above. It seems her iPhone updated while she is sleeping and since then the iPhone got stuck. She restarted her iPhone 7 Plus using the power button and volume down and nothing happened. She got really worried because she never made any backup and she has years of photos that she really want. She called me and asked me if I can fix it, so I told her let me try it out. Her main concern was the data on the phone, so she wants it to be repaired without losing any of the data. When I got the iPhone, I spent 6 hours doing the following

  • I connected it to my Macbook Pro and tried to update the iPhone via iTunes then I got error 14. My iTunes is the most updated version
  • I tried different USB Cable & Ports on Macbook Pro
  • I tried to update using iTunes on Windows PC
  • I tried different USB cables and ports on Windows PC
  • I redownloaded IPSW file and tried to update and both Macbook Pro and Windows PC
  • I tried IPSW Beta Update
  • I tried Repair and Exit Recovery Mode feature on different 3rd party programs, and couple of them were paid version ( Dr.Fone, 3uTools,Fixppo..etc)

I tried everything I found on the internet, but nothing worked. I told her that she has to bite the bullet and restore the phone via iTunes where she lose all the data and phone will be like new. The restore feature on iTunes was the only thing that worked and it was so sad losing all the pictures and data.

Apple should fix this issue ASAP, because lots of people are frustrated with Recovery Mode Loop and Error 14. There is no way around it except few cases.

Two Emergency Items That Needs To Be in Each Car in Kuwait

I always like to be prepared in case an emergency, especially with cars. There are lots of times that I was saved by my own emergency items, which I keep in the trunk of my car. From all the items that I bought in the past, two items saved me the most. Even though the chances of an emergency happening is less than 1-2%, it is still very important to have.

The first item is Fix a Flat, which fixes a flat tire by injecting foam into the tire and it will inflate it and seal it for 2 – 4 hours. The first time I used Fix a Flat was 2 years ago when I was in the farm until 3 AM. I was about to get into my car and saw the flat tire and the first thing that came to my mind was what am I going to do, because the spare tire is also flat. The farm is very far away from my home, and I didn’t want to leave my car at the farm and go back home with my brothers. I remembered that I always have Fix a Flat in the trunk of my car, so I took it and pumped the foam into the tire. The tire was inflated and sealed. I drove back home safely and fixed the flat tire the next day. You can buy Fix a Flat from Ace Hardware in Kuwait, which I highly recommend.

The second item is a car battery jump starter by NOCO sold by Garage Shuwaikh in Kuwait. The one I recommend is GB40, which is one of the smaller ones. I also recommend buying the case of GB40. NOCO GB40 has up to 20 charges, which means you can jump start 20 times. I have GB150, which is very large and I don’t think I needed something that big. I used my GB150 few days ago to jump start a family member car. Everyone who saw me jumping start the car with my GB150 decided to buy their own from Garage Shuwaikh. They all thought it was durable and much easier than connecting jump starting cables between two cars. I highly recommend buying NOCO products from Garage Shuwaikh

Where To Order Playstation 5 (PS5) in Kuwait

The release of Sony Playstation 5 (PS5) this year will be totally different than previous years, because Sony PS5 will release globally at the same time. Now the big question is where to pre-order PS5 in Kuwait. I honestly don’t want to pay above market prices, which is something I used to do a lot back in the day. Going to Rehab Complex and seeing prices where they switch the original price in $ to KWD and still buy the product will never happen again. The first week of release usually have the highest prices then it drops gradually.
