This selfie is shaky and out of focus
Well I was being flogged at the time!
Nothing wrong with publicising the price for breaking Saudi laws.
Bosses at selfie-swapping upstart Snapchat spent the weekend in Saudi Arabia seeking investment from the Warren Buffett of the Middle East: Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. The self-destructing-photo app biz is looking for about $500m, and hopes the prince – a member of Saudi Arabia's ruling royal family – can chip in a few million …
A fellow I knew who owned and operated a trucking company said a Saudi prince once offered him a job, which he turned down after visiting Saudi Arabia. The interesting part was what he observed of the prince's behavior. Apparently this devout muslim changed completely the minute his plane left Saudi airspace. The booze came out, the hair came down, and who knows what else. Just hearsay, sure, but similar rumours have come from a number of sources, including this board.
I guess it's good to be king (or a king in waiting).
So the IT v2.0 bubble goes on and on. While this man has plenty of money to spend it is clear that he is going to loose it once the IT bubble implodes in on it self.
As for his worth. That is going to be a subject of debate after the oil (in Saudi Arabia only) and IT crash in few years time.
