  2. As humans, we love jumping to conclusions and expect quick results. This is most visible when it comes to getting fit. Everyone's in a hurry to jump on a diet and get an expensive gym's membership. What you need to understand that it's not an expensive gym or a diet plan that will get you in a good shape. It's a concoction of a lot of other things in your lifestyle. Here, do these 5 things before you start on your fitness journey. Try 'Slowly' Eliminating Foods You Damn Well Know You Easily Overeat © YouTube Particular foods don't make people fat. Overeating does. Overeating = too many calories = fat gain. Instead of starting a dumb juice or salad only diet, get a hold on your eating habits. Eat the foods you love less frequently and in smaller quantities. Pick the foods you have had a habit of overeating and instead of eliminating them altogether, control the portions first and move towards eliminating them gradually. Shut them out at once and you will find yourself craving and pigging out right up on seeing them! Learn Basic Body Weight Strength Exercises At Home © Mensjournal Paying upwards of three thousands rupees a month to learn how to do push-up and pull-up by trainers who are most certainly not 'formally educated in fitness' isn't a good idea. Instead, get on YouTube. There are hundreds of great coaches from around the world giving great exercise advice and tutorials. Learn from them and apply at home. Once you are good with the basic exercises, it's then when you need added weights. At least, that's how injury free progression is done. Teach Yourself To Give Lesser Excuses In Every Aspect Of Life A fitness goal is achieved with dedication and determination. These two are fostered by learning how to 'not give excuses'. If you are an 'excuse giver', generally in everyday life, best believe that you will fail at fitness. Fitness and excuses just don't go hand in hand. So before starting off on a fitness journey, become a go getter at everything you think you can. This will immensely help you stick to hardcore dieting and tiring workout days. Check How You Eat And Drink At Social Outings © YouTube Going out isn't a problem. Just because you are on a diet doesn't mean that you will have to lock yourself in. But yes, the magnitude of the 'fun' you have when out needs to be checked. Most people stick to their diets while at home and blow it to smithereens once out with friends. Check your pattern of drinking and eating while out with friends. See what needs to be controlled and then move on with following a diet plan. Learn To Eat Protein © Thinkstock Indian traditional diets are garbage. Yes, pretty much pointless when it comes to changing body composition. It's heavily carbohydrate and fat based with absolute blind eye on protein. No matter what your fitness goal is, protein will always be the king. You will have it in almost every meal when on a diet. So if you are in a habit of slapping in wheat and rice at every meal, start looking at protein packed foods.
  3. You have a date. You're ecstatic. You have figured out your outfit. Everything is in place. Before heading out, though, you look at the mirror and your face looks like it needs major help, even though you just washed it with a face wash and even applied a cream. Especially, given India's extreme weather, this is a major challenge for everyone. Don't worry, for we have the solution - and it works like magic. You just need to try it out once and you'll swear by it forever. © Twitter The product we are talking about, is something you definitely find in your girlfriend's bag. It's called a 'BB cream'. A BB cream is just like a regular cream, except you need to apply just a tiny bit as compared to a regular cream. It's tinted, but don't worry about that, as that is precisely the reason that gives you an even complexion, post application. © Twitter Technically, a BB cream is neither a cream nor a foundation - but something in between. It's much lighter than a foundation (which you probably have never used unless you work in front of the camera), and heavier than a regular cream. You can use it just like you use a regular cream - but make sure the quantity is much, much less, and you apply it all over your face in tiny dots and then blend it really well with your finger tips. © Twitter Apart from making your face look like a million bucks, BB creams usually come with other benefits as well, such as sun protection and anti-oxidising agents. We say try it, and embrace it like a man. Here are some of the best BB creams in the market: 1. Garnier BB Cream With an SPF of 24, this BB cream here mosturises your face and keeps it fresh for 8+ hours. Price: INR 135/- © Amazon India Buy it here 2. POND'S BB Cream It brightens your face instantly, and SPF 30 is amazing for protection against the sun. Price: INR 140/- © Amazon India Buy it here 3. Maybelline New York BB Cream This comes in 3 shades, so choose the shade closest to your skin tone and enjoy instant glow on your skin. Price: INR 179/- © Amazon India Buy it here 4. Fair & Lovely BB Cream This one covers dark spots, while giving you a matte, non-oily finish. Price: INR 159/- © Amazon India Buy it here
  4. Indian banks have come under a lot of fire recently as cases of high-profile loan defaulters have blown up in the media. From Nirav Modi to Vijay Mallya, many prominent Indian businessmen have defaulted on large loan payments leading to the seizure of their properties and businesses here in India. While it's a matter of grave concern, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor shared an interesting take on the current scenario of large loan defaulters in India through a witty tweet: Received on whatsApp: What changed before and after Independence in India? Before Independence: People who looted us came from Britain. After Independence: People who looted us go to Britain. — Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) June 19, 2018 A perfect way to summarise the current situation in India, isn't it? Bringing back black money and stopping the defaulters from running away, aren't topics that the Modi government is comfortable talking about and while it's true that the government is taking measures to stop the rot, it's already too late. After Tharoor's tweet, many on Twitter were quick to point out an earlier tweet of Mallya, who referred to Tharoor as an old friend in one of his earlier tweets. Sir when you going to London? Like your friend https://t.co/iH7yDzqccy — Phoenix (@Plonkerite) June 19, 2018 And some even conspired that it was a sly dig at Congress President Rahul Gandhi's numerous trips to London. That's also another reason why @RahulGandhi is generally spotted in London most of the times. Maybe Tharoor has come to his conclusion basis Rahul's frequent London trips — Seema Trivedi (@SeemaTrivedi6) June 19, 2018 At a time when the government is forced to write-off corporate bad loans, these tweets help provide the much needed comic relief.

  8. Last week I wrote a piece on how college friendships don't necessarily last forever because of how life gets in the way. Of course, I expected people to bash me up in the comment section for daring to question the eternal bond that bros share. But what I didn't expect was the avalanche of friends tagging each other left, right and centre, begging to promise to stay friends for the rest of their life. This led me to wonder that, of course, friendship is precious and hard to find, but it is equally hard to maintain it. It is a sadness of a whole different kind when you realise that someone who was once your brother-from-another-mother, is slowly edging away from you. Friendship is not as simple as it used to be. Gone are the days when singing “ye dosti hum nahi todenge” at the top of our lungs when we were kids was all it took to seal our bond with our bro. Things are different now. You actually have to take out time from your busy life and be there for your friend. You need to assure them constantly that they are an important part of your life and you simply cannot take them for granted, or else they start drifting away slowly from you, and you won't even realise when they completely disappear from your life. So, in case you are finding your best bud, your 'bro for life' suddenly pulling back from you and drifting away, here are 10 ways that can help you in bringing them back: 1. Ask Yourself If You Still Want Them In Your Life Sometimes we remain in touch or stay friends with someone out of obligation for old time's sake. But, that is not the right reason to keep someone in your life. Ask yourself if this is the same friend you met all those years ago. I know it sounds brutal, but it is a necessary step before trying to bring them back into your life. 2. Figure Out What Caused The Gap In The First Place Was it a really bad fight? Was it over a girl? Or did long distance just take the spark out of your friendship? Figure this out first of all. Because, if it was a really trivial thing, then maybe you can move on. But if it was something major that caused a divide between you and your bro, then you need to make some tough decisions. 3. Text/Call Your Friend & Get Everything Off Your Chest You know you have been avoiding them because you have been feeling guilty for not staying in touch as much as you should. So stop torturing yourself and give him a call and just pour your heart out. Once you break that wall, things will become much smoother. 4. Take A Walk Down Memory Lane & Relive Those Golden Days I often drift into memories from my college and school days when I'm missing my friends. Having fun at Sports Day and the Annual Day function, being both terrified and thrilled at the Fresher's Day party, introducing myself to my new classmates in college and the joy of finding new friends. All these memories just bring a wave of nostalgia and I can't help but call or text my old pals. Try it. 5. Catch Up Over Drinks There is nothing in the world a pint of chilled beer can't fix. In case you feel like you have not spoken to your bud in a while, all you need to do is catch up over drinks and voila! It won't even feel like you haven't spoken in a while. Of course, drink sensibly and don't get drunk out of your skull. You'll actually want to remember your evening. 6. Show Your Friend You Actually Care About Him Stop being a jerk and start giving a damn about your friend. He is not someone you can take for granted. Of course, he is going to drift away if you only call him when you need something. So please, try and be there for your friend. Good friends are not easy to come by, so you need to cherish them. 7. Find Something You & Your Bro Love To Do & Just Go For It It could be anything, from going on weekly drives to monthly getaways. Or a visit to an old age home on your birthday or even getting together at someone's place every weekend. Plan out something that ensures you meet your best bros as much as you can. Calls and texts have their own place, but there is nothing like actually meeting in person and having a ball. 8. Talk Often About Being In Each Other's Life Even When You're Old © Pinterest In case you have seen 'How I Met Your Mother', you will remember how certain episodes showed the characters often picturing scenarios where they are together even when they are old with grandchildren. And we know how close their gang was, all through the way. Talking about being in each other's lives in the future, not only brings you closer to your friend, but also assures you that you will have a friend for the rest of your life. 9. Make A Pact & Swear On It Make a promise, an 'unbreakable oath' of sorts. No, I'm not talking about being there to help your friend throw up after a drinking session, I'm talking about a pact for a lifetime. It could be from being there to watch each other's kids grow up or taking a world tour together when you are 60. Something that will only solidify your bond with your bro. 10. Apologise Get over your pride and just do it, man. You know you made a mistake and it is only your ego that is making you push your friend away. Get over yourself, pick up that phone and say you are sorry. It could also be the other person's mistake, in that case, don't be a bonehead and just sit and sulk about it. Talk to him and help him see his fault. Once he sees that you actually want to save your friendship, he will start seeing you with different eyes. Guys, let me be very honest here. Having good and true friends who are ready to take a bullet for you and are actually there for you in time of need, is nothing but God's gift. If you have such people in your life, do not treat like crap and take them for granted. You know that saying “you don't know a good thing till it's gone”? Well, it is true in every sense. If you can fight for your parents and your girlfriend, how about fighting to keep your best friend in your life as well?

  11. Why do people fail at diets? This isn't a very simple question and the answer to it reaches beyond just dieting itself. If you look into how a person's lifestyle is, you will, more or less, get to know if he will be a successful dieter or not. That's why, with my clients, before staring them on a diet, I do a long talk with them about their daily routines. This discussion is imperative. Without this, you are setting up for a potential dieting failure. So, here are 5 things you need to look into before you start on a set diet plan. Fix Your Sleeping Pattern I really can't emphasise more on how utterly important sleep is. The human body hasn't changed much ever since we learned to walk erect. Sun down still means sleep for the body. Sunrise still means time to roll. You play with this rhythm, you will face consequences. I won't go into the details of what lack of sleep does. You are intelligent enough to decipher it yourself. Sleep has direct effects on your meals timings, craving issues and nutrition partitioning. You screw this, you screw your dieting success. Fix Your Daily Activity We were built to be as mobile as possible. Today, we are as immobile as we will ever get. Of course we need to do our jobs but that doesn't mean you can't be active. Walk shorter distances, help in house chores or do some grocery shopping. The point is to get yourself up and walking. Not only will you burn a ton of calories without even trying hard (N.E.A.T) but this will better your heart, joint and muscle health. © Thinkstock Fix The Way You Treat The Weekends Weekends kill diets. Adhere throughout the week and destroy your diet on the weekends. That's exactly how it goes but exactly not how it should be. If you are in caloric deficit diet, what matters is your weekly deficit. So if you do well on the weekdays and pig out on the weekends, you are only kidding yourself into failure. Look at weekends not as days where you can binge but as days that require you to be mentally stronger about your diet. You conquer this, you conquer dieting. Fix The Way You Think About Dieting The word dieting has been given such a bad reputation that most people think it is something that will make them sad. Who is to blame? The coaches who recommend bland food and salad only diets. Dieting is not bad at all. If anything, for most, it's the only road to mental and physical happiness. A diet should always be sustainable, should fit in your lifestyle and should NEVER completely keep you devoid of your favorite food. © Thinkstock Fix Your Yo-Yo Attitude And Learn To Say 'No' At the end of it, everything comes down to how your attitude towards dieting is. You think of it as a short term thing or a positive lifelong commitment. Also, the route to a successful diet will have you saying 'no' more than often. Learn to say no to foods and outings where you damn well know you will mess up your consistency.

  16. The trailer for the next 'Halloween' movie is already out, and I am as terrified as I was when I saw the first movie from the Halloween franchise. Seriously guys, if you're a horror/thriller movie fan and you haven't seen anything from the Halloween franchise, are you even a fan? If in case you are oblivious and have managed to avoid all knowledge about the franchise, let me tell you that the movie centres around a serial murderer called Michael Myers (not to be confused with Mike Myers) who is frantically on a killing spree on Hallows eve, while wearing a really scary mask. Okay, I just got the jitters again. The actual story begins when Michael is sent to a psychiatric facility for 15 years, when he kills his sister, Judith at the age of 10. 15 years later, Micheal escapes the facility and goes on a murder spree, terrorising a small town in America. © Universal Pictures The OG of 'Halloween' released way back in 1978 and was directed by John Carpenter. After the first release, a lot of sequels followed through and the original was remade again in 2007, and the sequel to the original was released in 2009. But the recent news around the releases tells us that the movie releasing this year, after 40 years from the original, will be the sequel to the 1978 release and it will not follow any of the previous sequels that were originally made. The best part about this remake? It has the original Michael Myers and the original woman, he's always haunted! Yes! Nick Castle and Jamie Lee Curtis are definitely in the film, along with new add-ons of course. The movie is directed by David Gordan Green and also stars Judy Greer and Andi Marichak. © Universal Pictures The producer, Jason Blum, teased the 'Halloween' franchise fans on Twitter, before the trailer released on Friday, saying 'The Halloween Trailer is dropping Friday', in three separate tweets. The Halloween trailer — Jason Blum (@jason_blum) 4 June 2018 Is dropping — Jason Blum (@jason_blum) 4 June 2018 Friday. — Jason Blum (@jason_blum) 4 June 2018 "The sequel is like the original in many many ways. The writers have connected the dots of the story and it made so much sense that it felt totally appropriate" Jamie Lee Curtis told a popular publication. © Universal Pictures Well, the new 'Halloween' definitely respects the DNA of the franchise and keeps the finale as creepy as one would imagine it to be! I, for one can't wait to watch this with someone for company for sure, or I might just have a heart failure and die. The movie though can be watched by people who haven't seen 'Halloween' at all. It's not like you have to watch the earlier movies. If you want to brush up on the 'Halloween' movie history you can definitely read up on Google or probably find them and watch them all! © Universal Pictures 'Halloween' will make its way to you on October 19th, right around Hallows eve! (jeez, what are the odds, right?). Here's hoping 2018 is as good as they say it will be for the horror and thriller genre!

  19. If you belong to a typical Indian family, you know that buying a new car isn't an easy decision to make. There are different opinions, clashes of choices and the ultimate goal of finding a car that fits perfectly well with every need and comfort of the family. And more so, a car that reflects your personality and is a smooth ride all the way! To say that we've found a sedan that is edgy, classy and more than your typical tech-savvy sedan options, is an understatement. That being said, there are key pointers to keep in mind while purchasing a car that defines your status. And the following factors prove just why we are leaning towards the Toyota Yaris! 1. Safety First! The most important features to look for in a car begin with its safety elements. The right questions to ask include the number of airbags, the assistance in parking and driving in the dark. The Toyota Yaris has 7 SRS airbags across all variants and has received 5-Star ASEAN NCAP (New Car Assessment Program for Southeast Asian Countries). With trusted safety and class-leading technologies it also has powerful LED headlights that assist while driving in the dark. The Yaris's projector headlamps with line guide improve road visibility and give the car a sporty, elegant look while illuminating the road ahead. The Yaris also has front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera that allows the driver better manoeuvring of the car, especially in tight corners and parking spots. All 4 disc brakes provide consistent braking power and enhanced braking capabilities, giving you more control of the driving experience and an assurance of safety in any condition. It features Hill Start Assist Control that activates braking for 3 seconds to let you start your car on a slope without the fear of sliding back. Assured safety from all the angles. 2. A Sedan That Shows Character The character of the car is evident when its sleek and intuitive design that matches its performance. The seamless amalgamation of the two is what makes this car unique. The Toyota Yaris is specifically built for Indian car owners who know the roads they are driving on, making the driving experience smooth and enjoyable, no matter where you drive. Style and functionality in perfect unison. 3. Comfort Over Plain Jane Luxury Of course, luxury is important but not more than comfort, right? The Yaris makes its mark here as well. Its power driver seat is what had our attention. It allows customisable comfort for the driver by letting them adjust the seat in more than one axis, including height and distance from the steering. In addition, with the cruise control feature, the driver can opt to lock into cruise mode for smooth, uninterrupted, effortless drives across long stretches of roads. And with paddle shift, the drivers can change the controls from manual to auto, based on their convenience. The Yaris has ample leg space and comfort, not just at the front but at the back too, courtesy the completely flat rear flooring, which lets even the passenger seated in the middle to be comfortable. Along with that, it also has roof-mounted air vents with ambient illumination, that facilitate the flow of air uniformly through the otherwise neglected back seats to ensure no complaints from passengers at the back! All round comfort at your fingertips. 4. A Car For Every Season In a country where rains often wreak havoc in traffic, we can't help but be precautious with the features we opt for. The Yaris has automatic rain sensing wipers that activate themselves as the rains begin, using IR technology, so that no time is wasted and visibility is not compromised even for a second. With HSEA (IR Cut) Acoustic and Vibration control windows controlling the UV rays that enter the car, you can feel the coolness inside even on hot days! Roof mounted air vents with ambient illumination. 5. A Family Entertainer When it comes to the much sought-after technological edge, this well-equipped sedan wins hands down! The Yaris has an LED Infotainment setup that allows navigation with hand gesture control. It makes those long drives a lot more fun with a world of entertainment at your fingertips. It's truly a pleasure to run through those extensive music collections with no effort while you enjoy the open roads and scenery. Information and entertainment made effortless. 6. Brand Is Always Important When you buy a new car, it's always important to know the manufacturer and their brand value, and Toyota does not disappoint. Its cars have historically had longer product cycles than most others, and their after-sales care and service has always been commended by users over the past 20 years of its function in India. With a low maintenance cost, the Yaris is yet another sensible addition to the line-up of the Toyota family – Qualis, Innova, Corolla and Etios. Quality, durability and reliability - all the way! So, have you made the decision to buy the ultimate Sedan yet?

  23. There are very few actors in Bollywood, who put their heart and soul into playing a character and nailing the role with near perfection. Paresh Rawal is one such name who can turn any role into an exceptional one with his Midas touch. While his portrayal of the eccentric yet lovable Baburao Ganpatrao Apte from 'Hera Pheri' will always be our favourite, it is his performance in an upcoming film that is creating quite a buzz at the moment. Rawal will be seen playing the legendary Sunil Dutt in 'Sanju'. Being called as one of the most awaited films of the year, Sanjay Dutt's biopic is a story that millions are waiting to watch with bated breath. The trailer has already left everyone impressed with Ranbir Kapoor's brilliant portrayal of Sanjay Dutt. Keeping the vibe alive, Rawal recently, shared a story related to the movie that has left an imprint on our minds. Well, maybe destiny did have plans for Rawal or maybe Dutt Sahab always wanted him to play his character, if such a moment ever came. Talking about what happened when he was offered the role, he said it was no less than a divine intervention. Playing Dutt Sahab's role is no walk in the park. The Bollywood great has a left a legacy behind and Rawal has huge shoes to fill. (C) Fox Star India Talking about the important moment, Rawal told a leading daily, “On May 25, 2005, I was shooting for a movie and I called up home to say that I will be late. And during the shooting, we got to know that Dutt Sahab (Sunil Dutt) has passed away, so I called up my wife and said I will come a bit late because Dutt Sahab has passed away and I am going to his house. She then told me that there is a letter for you from him (Sunil Dutt). I asked her what the letter was and she said it is for wishing you a happy birthday. I told her that my birthday is on May 30, which is five days away but she said the letter is for you and she even read it to me. I was so surprised. Why would Dutt Sahab send me a birthday letter five days before my birthday? And we have never exchanged any holiday greetings in the past – be it Diwali or Christmas – so why would he write to me?” (c) Fox Star India Stunned? So are we! But Sahab always had a way of amazing people. Rawal, who was also surprised at the time, further shared, “On January 3, 2017, I asked my wife to take out a couple of my documents as I was going to meet Rajkumar Hirani. I told her I will pick up those documents when I come back. When I was sitting with Rajkumar Hirani, my wife called me and said that along with the documents, that letter from Sunil Dutt Sahab was also there. She asked me what I wanted to do about it. And I was stunned as I was narrated the part of Sunil Dutt for the movie." (c) Twitter Some things and some moments are precious to us and we often preserve them in whatever way possible. Rawal did something similar. “See, usually you don't keep birthday cards for 12 years, you discard them. You forget about them, but that letter was there with all my important documents and it was again found on the same day Rajkumar Hirani narrated the 'Sanju' role to me. It is like a divine intervention. I showed that letter to Rajkumar Hirani later,” he added.

  24. Everyone knows 'The Simpsons', and everyone is familiar with the whacky theme of the show that involves far-fetched plots. These far-fetched plots are also a source of great predictions that became true today. The Simpsons have predicted an awful lot of things such as the Trump Presidency. However, today we want to focus on all the gadgets that were predicted by the show. From a smartwatch that can make calls straight from your wrist to NSA spying on you, here are 10 Times 'The Simpsons' managed to predict our digital present. 1. Smartwatches © Fox Way back in 1995, a Simpsons Episode aired called “Lisa's Wedding”. Who knew that watch that could make calls would become a reality in the future. Fast forward to today, we have the Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy Gear and various others smartwatches that can do what the writers of 'The Simpsons' thought of in 1995. 2. Video Calling © Fox In the same episode, Lisa And Marge are seen conversing with each other on a “video phone”. The TV screen is outfitted on a traditional rotary phone and even though it doesn't look like how we use video calling today, the concept was first seen in a Simpsons episode. Today we are very much familiar with Facetime, Skype and other services that allow you to chat with your loved ones via video. 3. Autocorrect We've been making spelling mistakes ever since humans started using language as a way of communication and we all know today how autocorrect has helped us in avoiding these errors. Autocorrect has also been the source of hilarious corrections that would often end up correcting words we never intended to. In the 1994 episode “Lisa on Ince”, Dolph takes a note on his Apple Newton “Beat up, Martin” which the device later changes it to "Eat Up, Martha.” Before autocorrect was introduced on the iPhone, it was a daunting experience to use the keyboard and we would often find ourselves with phrases that wouldn't make any sense. 4. GoPro © YouTube Homer uses a hidden camera under a giant hat in the 1994 episode “Homer and Apu”. He is investigating for selling split and expired food at the Kwik-E-Mart. Twenty years later, the GoPro was introduced to the world where users would attach the camera to a headband to capture point of view moments. 5. NSA Spying © Fox We all know today how the NSA spies on our activity, thanks to Edward Snowden's revelation a few years ago. However, in the 1997 episode "El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer)”, a scene shows a floorboard full of wires that are tagged by the names of various intelligence agencies in the United States. It was again featured in “The Simpsons Movie” which had a scene where NSA workers were spying on citizens. 6. 3D-Printed Cakes © Fox In the 2005 episode, “Future-Drama”, Marge uses a camera to take a picture of Bart and Lisa. The Polaroid then turns into a cake with Bart and Lisa's picture on the front. Today, 3D printed food is a reality and can be seen at every tech convention there is. 7. Rigged Voting Machines © Fox In the opening scene of “Treehouse of Horror XIX,” we see Homer try to cast a vote for Barack Obama. However, the machine chooses John McCain instead. When he tried to report the faulty nature of the machine, he gets sucked into it and gets killed. In 2012, faulty machines in Pennsylvania did the same exact thing by changing the vote to Mitt Romney when people tried to vote for Obama. 8. Virtual Reality © Fox In a 1998 episode, we see many characters play with a simulator for doing yard work. It required the players to use a headset in order to carry out the tasks. What's funny is that there are two predictions at work here. Firstly, the headset is very reminiscent of a VR headset that is connected to a computer to run the game. The Oculus Rift works in a similar fashion where players can play games and live in a virtual world. Secondly, a game called “FarmVille” was released in 2009 that let players do yard work. 9. First Generation iPod © Fox Sure it doesn't work like the original iPod; however, the design of the intercom in the 1996 episode “Bart After Dark” looks exactly like the iPod. The first generation iPod was released in 2001 and it's quite funny to see the uncanny resemblance between the two. 10. Bitcoin © Fox The first Bitcoin was mined on Jan. 3, 2009. However, there have been numerous references in The Simpsons about the digital currency. It was first spotted in a 1997 episode where Homer and Marge are reading a store sign called “Crypto Barn.” This was two years before American Economist and Nobel Prize winner in Economic Sciences Milton Friedman predicted the use of digital currencies.
  25. Apple currently has 1.3 billion users all over the world which include older iPhones that get regular updates from the Cupertino Giant. Last night at WWDC, Apple unveiled that every iPhone that ran iOS 11 will be getting the iOS 12 update and will increase the efficiency of older iPhones. © Pexels The latest version of the operating system will make older devices like the iPhone 6 work better and faster than ever before. The new operating system will be available on the iPhone and iPad and simple tasks such as opening apps will be twice as fast on iOS 12. The new operating system will work on products that date back to 2013 which is a great feat given Android smartphones are unable to achieve this feat. © Apple Apple software chief Craig Federighi said that apps will launch 40 percent faster with iOS 12 and will also affect the camera and keyboard display. For Apple, customer satisfaction is the highest priority and the same can be said about users with older devices. "For iOS 12, we are doubling down on performance," said Federighi. Apple's commitment to support older devices is a great business move as it would prove to be a good investment for users even years later after their purchase. Even though supporting older devices is time-consuming, expensive and tedious, Apple cares about their users who spend a lot of money on their products. © Apple iOS 12 will be bringing minor improvements to devise and will include new features such as Siri Shortcuts, ARkit 2, group FaceTime, Measure app and screen time tracking. The new update will be supported by devices such as the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X; iPad Air, Air 2 and 5th-gen iPad; iPad Mini 2, 3, and 4, and all iPad Pro models.
