I thought that i'm little bit experienced in Dubai Because i have been living in UAE for 16 years too. i thought that this period is colder and cloudy. and that is something you want in Dubai . Am i right ?

This is so sad, abusing world class architecture for shitty advertisements... IMO this is no better than graffitis on walls, even if this LED show is just temporary it really degrades the building

I agree with the points you made.

That being said, the technical feat of installing all the lights and co-ordinating the shows through computer control is pretty spectacular. Many buildings and towers now have some sort of LED lighting but the shows that are put on here are over the top ...

just as is this fantastic structure.

Cheers
Ray.

How stupid human being can be nowadays, if you want to throw something go somewhere on a field or at your home, but throwing a phone from such a height downwards where it can hit people (you can die if a iPhone with its mass on a 60km/h - 100km/h flight hits your head) -.- i hope guys like this get fined well.
