Today was the day my iPhone 4S flew from my hands, it actually flew! Seriously I’m not kidding!
I was on my way upstairs to my room when this happened, going up the stairs from the basement I reached the ground floor of our house and in one hand I had my iPhone 4S, I was checking a whatsapp message from Sister #3 (aka Your Battlefield) when all of a sudden my phone flies out of my hand and lands in the basement!
Our house is made of granite floors!
I immediately gasped and raised my hand to my heart and ran down the stairs to check on my baby hoping that none of it shattered to pieces. I turned on the lights and immediately start to look around searching for my baby. I found the case I had my phone in face down and immediately I worried that the front of it had shattered to pieces. I turn it over and realize there is no phone in it! It’s just the case there!!!!!
I continue to search frantically until I find it a few feet away and it too was facing down! I was about to cry, my feet were about to give in when I turned it around and saw that nothing happened to the front nor back glass of the phone. I was relieved to say the least but I went about checking my baby as if it were in fact a baby, checking for internal bleeding and all that jazz.
It was turned off, and I worried that it won’t work again, fortunately after turning it back on everything was working, except when I noticed the chipping up top where the plastic meets the antennas! Its a minor fracture not noticable to the naked eye but its still there.
My heart literally stopped today and started back up when this all happened. I am attached to my children (yes I call all my electronic devices children and well even though it’s sad it’s true) and so this happening wasn’t easy on me.
All is well again in the world, and let’s hope this is the only fall it will ever experience! And no I won’t buy another phone just because this one is fractured. The only major thing was that the case got a bigger chip and in my books better the case than my child!
Last night I came across the best eulogy published about the innovating genius Steve Jobs. Little did I know that I would actually end up crying before sleeping but that’s another story. This eulogy was published in
Take a moment to read this lovely eulogy and share your thoughts.
A Sister’s Eulogy for Steve Jobs
By MONA SIMPSON
I grew up as an only child, with a single mother. Because we were poor and because I knew my father had emigrated from Syria, I imagined he looked like Omar Sharif. I hoped he would be rich and kind and would come into our lives (and our not yet furnished apartment) and help us. Later, after I’d met my father, I tried to believe he’d changed his number and left no forwarding address because he was an idealistic revolutionary, plotting a new world for the Arab people.
Even as a feminist, my whole life I’d been waiting for a man to love, who could love me. For decades, I’d thought that man would be my father. When I was 25, I met that man and he was my brother.
I wanted to write about this earlier but better late than never. Two weeks ago

Sounds great? Then rush over there and grab it! I did the second I heard about it.
I pre-ordered the actual book along with the iBook version a week ago and finally the day has arrived when it is available to read. This will be my first book in a long time to read that wasn’t a historical romance and one that is 656 pages long!
I am looking into purchasing the Kindle version to place it on my Kindle as well, the reason I got the iBooks version is because well “It’s STEVE JOBS! HOW CAN I NOT PURCHASE IT ON THE BLOODY iBOOK STORE!”
Will be reviewing it later on this week hopefully if I get a chance to actually sit down and read more of it! So far I can’t help but hear his voice while reading the book and getting goosebumps along the way. He truly changed the world for us!
Thanks Steve for everything really! Especially for feeding my iObsession!
On October 7th I woke up really early even though I had only 2-4 hours of sleep I made sure to wake up to pre-order my iPhone 4S and make sure I was one of the first few to get it on launch day! Unfortunately the US Apple Store did not have the unlocked version available for sale until November so I headed over to the UK Apple Store and was able to place an order at around 10AM it was crazy didn’t get my confirmation letter until late that evening but well worth the wait.
Last Friday October 14th it was delivered to my Aramex UK mailbox and I anxiously waited for it to arrive to Kuwait, but unfortunately due to some trouble with people who didn’t log in the shipment my baby was not shipped until Monday (thanks to the Shop and Ship team on twitter @Shopandship) it was rushed over here and I got it today! WEDNESDAY that was the fastest shipment ever!
I am so happy and enjoying the unboxing experience as well as Siri, will review it shortly just thought I would make you all iJealous as I was these past few days.
I got the 64GB White model whereas father ordered the 32GB White model as well. Oh yeah and Thanks Daddy! This was my early birthday gift! [He's still going to the US on my birthday will have him bring me something else from there, after all I am daddy's little girl :P]
So yeah there you have it! I got it for 305KD from the UK Apple Store + 7.800KD Shipping for both iPhones which still makes it cheaper than those thieves at XCite Electronics!
P.S. I am still getting the iPhone 5 next year or probably it will be called iPhone 6 because it is the 6th generation! It was the last project Papa Steve Jobs was working on closely before he passed away :(
