The final version of iOS 9.1 was only sent out to the public last week, so you should probably expect a few more betas before iOS 9.2 is finished.

Storm “Alexa” was not as weak as some people think, but its “Center”, which is determined only before 24 to 48 hours, did not suit the Lebanese territories and especially Mount Lebanon.

The BRIDE(OLGA) Storm hits Lebanon : 7/1/2013 – 8/1/2013 – 9/1/2013 in Pictures !

— Original Post —

It’s true! Rain came late this year, yet it arrived with a blast; roads were flooded, highways transformed into rivers and cars, well, are not submarines!

As officials try to solve the situation as swiftly as possible, another ominous sign looms high in the skies; Alexa, although a fair name for a fair maden – or not – seems to have taken on a different meaning this year, for it bears wind, snow and everything in between. According to the Agricultural Research Institute, The said storm will hit Lebanon next week with frost and snow.

On Monday 9th, freezing northern winds will hit Lebanon with rain and snow at 1000 meter above sea level, which might also cover the Bekaa area. The same applies for the following day. However, we will witness lower temperatures on Wednesday, 11, with torrential rain and snow reaching 800 meters above sea level.

Just as you might think this is over, temperatures will further drop in Thursday and Friday, accompanied by rain and snow, also reaching 800 meters above sea level.

The storm will recede on Saturday with a possibility to renew on Sunday.

Viber is now blocked in Saudi Arabia, Skype and WhatsApp might follow

The free internet messenger and calls service Viber has been shut down in Saudi Arabia as it has failed to comply with local regulations. The Communications and Information Technology Commission in the country has also issued a warning it’ll do the same to other applications and services that don’t comply with the regulations.

Quarts reports that Viber. Skype and WhatsApp have received a warning from the Saudi telecommunications regulator back in March. The shutdown could be a result of a failure of Viber to provide the CITC a local server to monitor user activity.

The report suggests that there might be more than regulations at play here. In addition to the Saudi Arabia’s authoritarian regime’s desire to monitor user activity and keep track of social unrest, telecoms are losing revenue as services like Viber, Skype and WhatsApp are becoming users’ choice for placing international calls and texts.
