It’s Tuesday 4th May

In today’s newspapers

No car repair works in public parking lots or sidewalks

Says the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

Businesses that engage in car maintenance and repairs in cities and on commercial streets are prohibited from conducting their activities outside the areas defined in the licence. Including conducting business in public parking lots, on sidewalks, in adjacent squares and in residential areas.

Qatar’s first laptop manufacturing facility to start production in August

The Qatar Free Zone Authority has announced the establishment of a state of the art production facility in the Umm Alhoul Free Zone. Built by a partnership between iLife Digital which is a leading intelligent robotics and electronics company based in Florida, and prime technologies a subsidiary of Ali bin Ali Holdings here in Qatar.

iLife and Prime Technologies will use the 2,500 square metre facility to create innovative iLife branded electronic devices, including laptops, PCs, smartwatches, and mobile phones, among others.

Qatar Airways Cargo ships medical aid to India

Three Qatar Airways Cargo Boeing 777 freighters departed to India yesterday, carrying approximately 300 tonnes of medical supplies from around the world to support COVID-19 relief efforts. The three flights departing one after the other, were bound for Bengaluru, Mumbai and New Delhi as part of the Qatar Airways Cargo’s WeQare  spelt with a Q, initiative.

Qatar’s weather Today

The Met office have put out a warning that we can expect thundery rain with strong winds at times in some places around Qatar. But probably not Doha according to the weather map.

Doha will see temperatures between 27 and 33 degrees. Elsewhere in the country it will be between 24 and 37 degrees.

Now today’s COVID update.

In the last 24-hour period, there have been 644 new cases of COVID-19 and 1,548 recoveries. Unfortunately, there were also 8 Covid related deaths. Which means for the 11th day running there has been a decrease in active cases, today dropping by 912 giving us a new current total of 13,013 active cases.

Yes that’s right, for just QR 400 your old laptop can not only preform like new, it should perform even better than it did when you first bought it.

By replacing your existing Hard Disk Drive (HDD) with a new Sold State Drive (SSD) your laptop will startup in the blink of an eye, and your software will load so fast you won’t believe it’s the same computer.

Crucial 525GB SSD
Crucial MX300 2.5 inch SSD

A 275GB SSD from Crucial will cost you just £77.29 when bought from Amazon UK (QR 353) and after you have paid Aramex Shop & Ship to send it over here for you at a cost of QR 53 you will have spent just QR 406 in total.

I ordered the Crucial MX300 pictured above, which is a 525GB SSD (cost QR 572) and popped it into my 6 year old Sony Vaio and I can’t believe the difference.

Your old HDD (Hard Disk Drive) stores data on spinning magnetic disks. SSD’s are like USB memory sticks but many times faster. There are no moving parts which makes them blisteringly fast. They run cooler, quieter and are less susceptible to data corruption when knocked or dropped.

My Vaio cost me QR 6,000 six years ago, and I was about to give it away because it was performing so badly. After spending just QR 572 this computer (yes I am using it right now) has become super usable and there is no way I’m going to part with it. Saving me serious money as the laptop I was going to buy to replace it was going to cost another QR 6,000.

Of course you do have the tiresome task of backing everything up first and transferring it to your new SSD. But there are people who will do this for you for around QR 100 (message me if you can’t find anyone, I know someone who will do it for you).
