Screen Shot 2013-08-31 at 6.07.24 PM


Well home monitoring is an important thing specially if you have kids you want to watch remotely . or maybe u are traveling and want to verify things .

in addition having a store or a shop u want to keep an eye on .


the easiest solution is D-Link my cloud camera solution . why ? much cheaper than Hawally DVR solution were they sell the DVR with 200KD and each camera around 10 or 20 KD . also internet setup is complicated and no much software update


D-Links rocks !!! just install the camera ( the night vision one cost 25KD in Hawally ) register an account on dlink cloud , and u are done … you can watch with ur iphone ,ipad or web browser

Application Portal – Self Service –

I guess the name explain it all , employee in a company always complain that Helpdesk not answering the calls , slow response ..also some installation they need to send a tech support to employee office .


guess what with app portal software , employee will do it by her/him self .


the good thing also it has it is own workflow ,so still Helpdesk or admin to approve or deny , and it integrate with Microsoft SCCM .


this is the future , why to call Helpdesk of you can do it ur self .


now Self Service web or app spreading , and i beleive it is adding huge value .


ya last , SCCM 2012 has it own web for self service but microsoft didnt mention much .


Facebook Cache , twitter Cache , instagram Cache

Well the title is tricky , but this to draw attention , if you want to serve your customer with excellent customer experience , then you need to have CDNs ;

content delivery network (CDN) is a large distributed system of servers deployed in multiple data centers in the Internet. The goal of a CDN is to serve content to end-users with high availability and high performance. CDNs serve a large fraction of the Internet content today, including web objects (text, graphics, URLs and scripts), downloadable objects (media files, software, documents), applications (e-commerce, portals), live streaming media, on-demand streaming media, and social networks.

Zain Lte 4G external Router Antenna

If you are suffering from Weak Lte signal in your Zain Lte 4G router , i guess the best option is to get external antenna for it .


Zain router can support two Lte external Antenna from the back of the device



be careful dont buy any antenna from Kuwait market , make sure you get 1800 Mhz antenna . most kuwait shop are selling WIFI which is 2.4 Mh antenna claiming its for Lte , also some type ZAIN antenna on back of it and this is wrong .


if you like to get an antenna online you can get it from amazon.co.uk ( Lte Zain Compatible ). DeLock is the only one i could find online , Below it specification
