I wasn’t expecting the new iPhones to be available that soon in the Middle East but according to Apple’s UAE store, they will be available to order starting September 27th, a week after the official release date. The iPhone6 starts at 700$ and the iPhone6 Plus at around 815$.
As far as Lebanon is concerned, you can expect the iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus to be over $1000 in the first few weeks, so I recommend you wait a little bit till prices settle.
I followed the #AppleLive event yesterday and it’s great to finally see an iPhone with a big screen at last. The Apple Watch is nice but it looks big to be honest and expensive at 350$. There’s even more expensive edition that has a watch case crafted from 18-karat gold. Something tells me this edition will sell big in the Middle East.

That’s just wrong. Aren’t they promoting arguile and smoking that way? I thought that was illegal.
PS: I am not a professional photographer, nor do I pretend to be, but I love photography and I am getting better at it.
I’ve been on Instagram for two years now and I already have over 10,000 followers. I’ve worked really hard on getting so many followers and it’s quite rewarding to see so many people liking my pictures. I even crossed the 1000 likes per picture mark two days ago which is quite great!
It is worth noting that being a blogger doesn’t really help getting followers on Instagram, as I’ve promoted my Instagram account on the blog on several occasions and barely got 5 to 10 followers every time. In fact, it’s all about following and interacting with people on Instagram, posting the right amount of pictures per day, using the proper hashtags and other tips that I will sum it in an article I am working on.

Here’s a video showing the two goals Lebanon scored against Brazil and one showing the fans’ reaction to the second goal. The first goal was quite amazing!
Lebanon played a friendly game against Brazil’s Olympic team in Qatar tonight and almost beat the Brazilian side. The Brazilians were the first to score but the Lebanese team managed to score twice afterwards and could have easily won the game if it wasn’t for Brazil’s late equalizer (which was an offside by the way). I know that this is not the official Brazilian team, but it’s still a huge achievement for the Lebanese team.
I will share a video of the goals scored as soon as they are out.
Sara passed away 14 days after giving this inspiring and brave Ted talk. I wish I had attended the event and met her in person. May she rest in peace and many thanks to TedxLAU for this small and beautiful tribute.
I can’t confirm the authenticity of this video but it looks real and recent. I wouldn’t be surprised if these terrorists are treating our soldiers this way specially after they beheaded two of them. I have no clue what the authorities should be doing, but what I know for sure is that they need to free these soldiers fast as time is against them.
Let’s hope we get all our soldiers safe and promptly.
I had no idea we have 8 Rugby teams in Lebanon. This is definitely encouraging even if they are playing with 7 players only. In fact, maybe it’s smarter to play with smaller teams to encourage more schools and universities to join. Rugby sevens is a variant of rugby union in which teams are made up of seven players, instead of the usual 15.
