For all the techies waiting to get their hands on the glasses that will turn you into some sort of demigod, the Google Glass hits the shelves tomorrow; West Bank village blocked for Passover; Iran not going to Atlantic; and last week in Lebanon.

From the information made available to the foreign press, it appears it's always sunny in the Geneva Two room. The forecast, however, may be calling for storms; April 13th- a solemn day in Lebanon; 2014- the year of the woman in KSA; and confusion between the U.S. and Iran.

Any single men over forty looking for a defense of your awesomeness? Jaraad lays out ten reasons, and even backs them up with the Quran! Anonymous strikes Israeli sites again; and little children eating lemons in slow motion.

While she's no sight for sore eyes, some Lebanese do not like the amount of skin singer Maya Diab chooses to show; seven things parents are doing all wrong; and a female reporter visits Tripoli without a veil and gets accosted by a five year old.
One visit to Tunisia and the lighter mood and hopeful strides of the people is evident. Now this theme needs to be transferred to the new economy; terror attack in Bulgaria traced to Lebanon; and 100 days since Al Jazeera Staff imprisoned.

The people have spoken and Apple has heard their cries. Those who like the bigger screen are in store for a real treat with the newest iPhone; a woman's worst nightmare; 75 year old priest killed in Syria; and Ethiopian worker dead in Lebanon.
