Once again, money talks and all the rest morals, ethics and honesty have no value. Who cares about the way labors and maids are treated in Qatar.
Well done Britain, for not resisting the temptation as usual, for self-interest versus the wellbeing of the world. This attitude was exactly why Qatar was awarded with the World Cup.

I visited the Marks & Spencer store in Dublin, Ireland - Not even half the choice that they have there is available here in the Abu Dhabi stores...so yes, if Macy's is coming to Abu Dhabi, they should offer the choice and prices as they do in the US or else it is going to be just one more of those stores... Am happy to know then are coming into Abu Dhabi though.

I received this offer as well with a salary offer of $13500 per month. Suspicious, I digged around the web and found Qatar Oil Services LTd has copied the whole website of Qcon (Qatar Construction services). Moreover, no such company existed inthe Qatar Business listings and the numbers given were also fake. I asked questions but the QOIL HR guy kept insisting I send signed copy and initiate contact with doha travel agency. So I said "first I need to borrow some oil from your Qatar Oil services to -------- your sister" LOL he never replied back :D

I think it was Khalid's comment the one that triggered the sarcasm wave.
We can not really know what happened to Murad's phone what he sees as a small drop on soft ground may have been that or may have been a drop on a much harder surface, or he may have been simply unlucky

But Khalid's reaction to one single (unverified) event is kind of an overreaction. Every single model of phone can break, short of a confirmation (based on a higher than normal number of complains) this is a non-event

Then again his comment about service here is not really unique to Sony, ain't?

And how do they intend to get through the traffic jams? No one moves when an ambulance, fire engine or even a police car is trying to manoeuvre on Sheikh Zayed Road, and that is a fact that is hard to dispute. We came to the market 2 years ago with a motorcycle that was equipped and is used in several other countries as a FIRST RESPONDER - it can really make the difference and save lives - but no one was interested, if they are interested now get in touch. Boys Toys are not the way forward, reality checks need to kick in and real practical vehicles as well as better patrolling of the roads by the police and average speed cameras will all act to reduce the accidents and reach the goals for zero accidents all round.

I think it's a very interesting topic , it's clear that this Saudi Arabia’s feminisation program will influence the private sector .
It's an opportunity and a threat in the same time ....for companies , the customer satisfaction and the ROI will be impacted ......
