    Forget video quality and focus on content!

    Bassel’s contribution was minimal and very shallow. I expected much better insight and a more scientific value from someone with his background and experience, but apparently he took the interview lightly and didn’t put effort into making it more valuable.

    I really don t know why you are grappling on some thing without any meaning except a decorative one, and you completely forgotten the mean topic which is more valuable ,there ‘s a quote in my place saying :”better something than nothing ” my respect ((*__*))

    Why should Google or anyone else but Arabs care about the language and the culture.

    If we want something done, we have to do it ourselves and experts that do not like what google did, should do something themselves.

    Am I right? Or have I been out of ME for so long that I forgot why we just complain but never do?

    No person can be undeniably like me. Sometimes even I experience in shtook doing it.
