Extreme Unboxing: Samsung Galaxy S II

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

 

This is not your normal unboxing video! Samsung UK came with this crazy promotional plan to invite recognizable UK bloggers to do extreme unboxing videos of  Samsung Galaxy S II. The plan simply, take punch of bloggers,  put into situations such as rally car, mountain climbing,  skydiving .. etc and request them  simultaneously record an unboxing video .. hmm, i’m thinking to do something closer.

The Ongoing Mishaps of Aramex continues…

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Ok, now I do sound like an 80 years old grandma with all those complaints, but don’t we all want the same thing? to be given the exact service we’re paying for? Aramex keeps on testing my patience with their mishaps of which I know many of you faithful readers have experienced; delays, confusions, overpricing and the list is on.

I’ve just ordered a 15″ MacBook Pro from amazon along with 8GB DDR3 RAMs and both were shipped from Amazon on the same day, received at the Aramex NY facility the next day and shipped from there again on the same day, just to “suddenly” realize one of them reached here before the other… how come?! I’mm not even gonna talk about the lack of e-mail notifications of the whole process!

Anyho, I’ve called Aramex, took 15 mins for them to answer my call, asked them why my orders were separated along the shipping process, why am I being “fully charged” for both orders instead of being consolidated as per procedure and WHY am I receiving one order before the other? Well, the list of whys goes on but we still bite our tongues and shut up because they’re among the very few who provide this kind of service… but for how long?

I really hope they set their services straight instead of blaming everything on the Ministry and Customs, the least Aramex could do is arrive to some sort of an agreement with the Customs instead of passing on the complaints to us. Last I heard we ARE the customers.

Seriously Apple™? Seriously NBK™??

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

I called in on NBK’s call center a while ago to check on the status of my money that has been “Reserved” by Apple’s money minions since they’ve cancelled my order for “unknown” reasons.. and I say unknown because their call center agents said so… they cancel orders and they don’t know why… and to top it off, THEY PUT YOUR MONEY ON LOCKDOWN FOR 15 DAYS!!! Seriously Apple? if you don’t know why you’ve cancelled the order, just release the money so I can find another place to order from!!

Anyhow, I lost count of the days that passed since they’ve cancelled my order and I thought about calling NBK to check on the status of the money “locked” by Apple from my MasterCard. and they told me 13 days have passed, a couple more to go. AND Just as I was about to end the call, the Call Center agent asked me if I had the SMS notification service on and I said yes, of which by then he explained that the management has suddenly seen “FIT” to charge 10KDs (or was it 20?) as an annual subscription fee to the service after the first two free years. Seriously NBK? It’s not about the money, it’s just that I thought you guys valued your clients. after all the time you’ve provided the service for your people, you just start charging for it? it’s just a matter of principles!

Man… Where’s the love??? :S
