SanDisk Ultra II was the SSD drive I’ve decided to buy (purchase link) based on Amazon’s top selling SSD drives list. It came third on the list in the top Internal Solid State Drives offering SATA 3 connectivity. The 1800+ favorable user reviews helped me to seal the deal. I needed that SSD drive for my Lenovo cheap laptop. I was getting tired of the long waiting time for Windows to load and for my applications to work.

Samsung Middle East sent me their Samsung Gear S2 Classic Smart Watch for review. They chose for me the brown, leather strap version (aka Classic). I took out the smartwatch from the box, charged it with the wireless charger included. Took 2+ hours for a full charge. I connected it to my  Samsung Galaxy Note 5 via Bluetooth. The connection was established smoothly, although I had to install / update the Gear Manager on my phone which took ~10-15 minutes.

Tip: when I tried to connect the Gear S2 to another mobile phone, I failed miserably. I had to ‘factory-reset’ the Gear S2 before I could connect it to another phone.

My life was miserable until someone told me to start using the amazing Samsung SideSync application. Here’s my story:

As a marketing communications specialist, I’m tasked with writing content for social media accounts.

I’m also in charge of posting the right content to the right social media channel. (i.e. Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, Instagram, etc.).

Using my humble Samsung Android phone, I used to suffer with the inaccurate navigation of the touch screen, the lack of proper copy / paste functions, and most of all: the inability to use the glorious mouse! [Shoot me, I’m an avid point-and-click type of user]

An adjustable monitor stand that fits your gaming setup or your work desk is crucial for the ultimate PC experience.

Dubai Motor Show Logo

The Dubai Motor Show is a biennial auto show held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Due to the high interest of expensive cars in Dubai, this auto show attracts major car and super car manufactures, tuning companies, Antique Auto and Classic Car Restorers, Automotive restoration providers, a slew of motorcycle manufacturers, and other related companies.

This year, I went to see for myself whether the Dubai Motor Show meets its hype or not. I parked the car, walked the long walk, paid the AED65 (~$18) entry fee and and went into the Dubai International Convention Center halls. It wasn’t the weekend thankfully, so the crowd was just right. Funny enough, while strolling through the halls, I ran through a small crowd and lots of mobile phones taking photos. It was the entourage of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (The Ruler of Dubai) who was visiting the Dubai Motor Show, with his son Shk. Hamdan, crown prince of Dubai. The later is one big royal fan of automotive jewels.

We ended up buying the Renault Captur 2016 model.

In this Renault Captur UAE Review, I’ll tell you how it happened.

It all started when then wife persuaded me to buy her a new car which should be a crossover. I had to put my foot down and say yes dear. Then we began short-listing cars based on budget, features, looks, safety, etc.  We also researched online forums, manufacturers websites, pre-owned car reviews and such.

The criteria we gave highest ratings in our next car were:

1. Fuel; economy because I’m a casual tree hugger
2. Safety; because we want to live a little longer
3. Budget; because that holiday in Switzerland
4. Looks; because the status quo
5. Luxury; Features for passengers other than us
