There is an old saying in the middle east : "A Friend is known at bad times", which means that a real friend remains your friend at bad times.
There is also a common saying: "Do you know him yes, did you test him?...."
this saying means that knowing people and testing them are two different matters!

Well this is a new, yet interesting fact (At least to me!)
I didn't know that the famous comedian Rowan Atkinson, is actually an Electrical Engineer! and with an MSc degree!
I even looked it up on Wikipidia, he is a graduate of Queens College at Oxford University.
Being an electronics Engineer (which is close as a major) makes me wonder, why would some people put all that effort in their education, and then convert their career into a completely different path?!
is it part of doing what you like in life?or is it because till now there is no effective way of choosing an education that is %100 fit for you? (meaning how can a high school student, a senior of course, can choose the right college for himself?)
As a big fan of Apple and its products, I could hardly wait for the 12th of September to see what the new iPhone 5 would look like!
I watched the conference, and the video on Apple's website.
I'm going to be honest, I actually expected to see more, but yet, I could see that there is enough for me to digest till the next iPhone.
Apple to me is more than just a company, it's a source of inspiration.
From Steve Jobs and his philosophy in life, to the innovation that doesn't seem to stop in this company.
They don't just produce high quality products, they make sure that these products are also attractive to customers.
Hope they remain on this track, and not get derailed and fall.
Note that I'm not trying to promote Apple products here, I'm just saying what I think about them :-)
