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.

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.
