PTV’s Shaista Zaid delivers last bulletin after 43 years

Eversince I was a child, I can recall her face in the evenings when there was just PTV and later STN. I am sure a generation can recall her face seeing on PTV English Bulletin @ 7pm everyday

A little bio of Shaista Zaid, the legend

There were people on twitter recalling her and expressing sorrow on her retirement news

So sad that Shaista Zaid is retiring. She is the face that launched a thousand Kashmir reports, Eid moons and coups. End of an era. #PTV

It was an honor to watch Shaista Zaid's last bulletin. Her grace and elegance unmatched for those 43 years when she remained on-air.

HTC Helpline

I needed to get my HTC Desire HD‘s volume key repaired even though it was

  • Nnot in warrenty and
  • Not purchased from Brightex

but to my surprise the helpline was very proactive and welcome-ing in offering their services. Of course the services were paid for but at least I had the peace of mind for getting them fixed from the pros.

Thats another reason to buy HTC hardware

HTC Helpline in Lahore is being offered by Brightex, the official distributor of HTC at 111-111-HTC (111-111-482)

PTCL EVO device with Tenda Portable 3G wireless router with battery (3G150B)

As promised, I previously reviewed the 3G150M model (without battery) and this time I am going to review the 3G150B (with battery model)

Although the battery model is more attractive and more widely used (Im using 3G150B more as compared to 3G150M) it control panel interface is fairly basic which is a set back for me and im sure for most other users as well. But still, its the best out there

There was also an advertisement in Spider magazine for the month of April 2012 as can be seen in the following photo

This Tenda device cost approx Rs. 4200 in the market and its model is 3G150B. The only difference from 3G150M is that it has battery to give backup of approx 5 hours. I configured it using the same PTCL EVO configuration settings for 3G routers.
