We’ve moved…

Hi everyone, thanks for being patient. We’re happy to say the wait is finally over. Our top secret project (yes, it was the fully-blown website) is now live, and available at www.stuffmideast.com. So come in, have a look, put your feet up and get stuck in to the region’s best-selling technology magazine. Still a few bugs, but we’re sure you’ll help us iron those out. Now click this link, and we’ll see you on the otherside.

Watch this space…

Hey everyone, we realize the blog has been a bit on the, err… quiet side of late. But that’s because we’re working on something top secret. Bear with us, it won’t take much longer. Make sure you come back to this website (did we say site?) at the beginning of next month. We know you’re going to love it.


Arash Motor’s AF-10 supercar

If you have a spare US$580,000 stored under the mattress for a rainy day, you might be interested in Arash’s latest motor. Packing a hefty 550BHP under its ultra-sleek bonnet, the AF-10 has a 7-litre engine capable of top speeds over 200kph. So it’s fast, expensive and exclusive too, with only 25 planned to roll off the production line.

2K Games to release Dubai-based First Person Shooter?


Our frag-happy pals at MEGamers posted a link to a mysterious new video of an FPS depicting Dubai as a sandy post-apocalyptic wasteland, complete with cameos of Emirates Towers, the Burj Al Arab and the Burj Dubai.

We’ve contacted our sources at 2K Games (who are allegedly publishing the game) for an official response, but as yet have received no word.

In the meantime head over to MEGamers to check out the video and wonder along with us what the PR implications for our fair city will be.

Casio Exilim EX-G1 toughcam

This snapper’s biggest selling point: it looks like something Batman would strap to his utility belt. The EX-G1 is a 12MP pocket-friendly camera, that’s waterproof down to 3m or submersed for up to 60min. It can handle temperatures down to -10 degrees, and will survive drops of 2m. Other features include a 16:9 movie mode, microSD storage and a 3x optical zoom. Definitely worth getting for your next spelunking trip.

Suunto Core Extreme Limited Edition

We’re  a big fan of Suunto’s harder-than-nails sports watches, and the aptly named Core Extreme is no different. Packed within Batman-like armour, the dark delight includes an altimeter, barometer, digital thermometer, whether trend indicator, digital compass and predicted sunrise or sunset times. If that wasn’t enough, it also tells the time, twice (thanks to dual timekeeping abilities). No word on pricing just yet, but with all those features we wouldn’t be surprised if it fell into the Bruce Wayne-consumer bracket.
