  1. It's the best Chris in Hollywood's birthday, yay! What can I say about Chris Evans? He's a great actor, he's a great person, he's literally a golden retriever in human form. This near-perfect human being turned 38 today and we obviously need to celebrate him, and what better way than to look back at all of his best scenes from the MCU? Let's be real, he can do whatever role he wants, but he will always be Captain America (sorry, Anthony Mackie but that's what you get for a boring Black Mirror episode). As Cap, he's given us many incredible movies with unforgettable dialogues and scenes. While every scene with him is great, of course, I have listed out the best, most memorable scenes. Enjoy! Also, happy birthday, Cap! 1. The best Cap scene ever/ Hammer Time This scene, this freaking scene, is hands down the best MCU moment for me. I can watch it a hundred times and still be as excited as the first time. Such a crucial moment, Thanos is overpowering Thor and will probably kill him, but wait, in comes Cap to show he's worthy. Nothing can top this. 2. Cap vs Cap Another great 'Endgame' scene that we didn't know he needed until it actually happened. From “I can do this all day” “yeah, I know, I know” to “Bucky is alive” to “this IS America's ass”, the whole Cap vs Cap fight scene was perfect, nothing can make it better. 3. “There's only one God” What a dialogue, what a way to introduce Thor in 'The Avengers', and Steve being Steve and jumping out of planes. Also, him calling Natasha 'ma'am' proving he really is from the 40s. 4. When he blocks Thor's hammer Well, now we know how and why he could do this. He's also so worthy! Also, the moment Thor realizes they're not some random people. 5. Lift scene(s) A great scene from an overall great movie. The 'lift scene' is so memorable, it's so well done. Anyone should be afraid of getting into a lift with Chris Evans - or make fun of it - but either way, it's still one of the best MCU scenes till date and that's why there was a callback to that in 'Endgame' as well. Cap saying 'Hail Hydra' will never not be funny to me. 6. Cap is strong, like very very strong If you were not even a little turned on by Chris Evans' muscles and strength in this scene, then you're not human and you're also lying. The guy is so freaking strong, he literally could stop a fucking helicopter from flying. Strongest Avenger right here, people. Hulk who? 7. Nomad Cap! You cannot tell me that Cap's entry in 'Infinity War' wasn't one of the best scenes in a movie filled with incredible scenes. To be honest, it was the perfect way to introduce the newest Avenger - Captain America's cool new beard (and no I'm not talking about Peggy or Sharon). 8. AVENGERS…assemble Well, we started with 'Endgame' and we'll end with 'Endgame', obviously. This might not be a long scene but it's a damn powerful one. Everyone who got dusted is back - which again was a visual treat in itself - but when Cap comes in front and does what he does best - lead - it was just great to watch. Also, it was the last time these Avengers will ever assemble and the added emotional aspect makes it an unforgettable scene from the entire MCU.
  2. E3 kicks off today with EA Play but the company has already made the release date of FIFA 20 official. The game is all set to launch on September 27 but the publisher did not divulge any other more information about the upcoming game. Tonight's EA Play will be the platform where the company will reveal more details about the game; however, we do know some details that will make the game a bit better. 8.6.19 https://twitter.com/hashtag/FIFA20?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FIFA20 https://twitter.com/hashtag/EAPLAY?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#EAPLAY https://t.co/aHA9Vq8fg6">https://t.co/aHA9Vq8fg6 https://t.co/TEKuEU7ACW">pic.twitter.com/TEKuEU7ACW — EA SPORTS FIFA (@EASPORTSFIFA) https://twitter.com/EASPORTSFIFA/status/1136648999073529856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 6, 2019 EA did, however, confirm some gameplay changes that will make the game better than FIFA 19 this year. The most crucial change comes is in the AI defending mechanics as the company wants to put more emphasis on manual defending rather than letting the computer do it for you. EA plans to increase the likelihood of the ball going to your teammate after a manual tackle on your opponent. Automatic defending will also be affected as the efficient and reaction time will be reduced. This will let players hone their defending skills and depend less on the computer for defending. (c) Electronic Arts In terms of shooting, EA wants to improve accuracy during one on one or easy attacking scenarios. Goalkeeper's reaction times will also be reduced in these type of situations in order to give it a more realistic approach to defending and attacking. FIFA 19 players have complained in the past about keepers having “Superhuman" reaction times. Even when shooting, the green timed shots are also being reduced to two frames for all shots. The green timed shots are also becoming less accurate to increase the challenge of scoring a goal. EA did, however, reassure players that green timed shots will "still be more accurate than non-timed shots.” (c) Electronic Arts EA is also working hard on making the shooting and passing more realistic were volleys will be more variable, and less accurate. In terms of passing, if you pass a ball while doing a 180° turn, it will be a weaker pass than normal and also be less accurate. New passing options are also being introduced i.e. a new dinked pass where it won't be automatic anymore. It will be more contextual rather than be user-controlled. The other new passing option will be a driven pass-and-go feature which will replace the manual pass button combo.
  3. It has been long rumoured that Apple will be bringing one of its most beloved features on iPhones, but it will be different from what we are used to. There have been previous rumours suggesting that Apple will include an on-screen fingerprint scanner on the next iPhone and the company's latest patent confirms the plans. It may not come as soon as this year's iPhone, however, it is expected to come sooner or later. (c) Pexels According to the latest patent spotted by Patently Apple, the company wants to embed a pinhole camera being the display of the smartphone. This camera will be able to create a 3D map of your fingerprint regardless of where you place your finger. The new feature will be an additional form of biometric unlocking and the company will not be replacing FaceID anytime soon. The two methods will make the iPhone even more secure as current iPhones only supports FaceID. (c) Pexels The more exciting bit about this patent is that Apple has shown pictures of a prototype, which means that the company is already done with the development process. The new unlocking method is expected to go into mass production by 2020 and will be a feature on 2020 iPhones. The new unlocking method is not the first time we're something like this as Xiaomi has also developed a version which works similar to Apple's patent. Source: Patently Apple
  4. It took approximately 4-5 hours for Deepika Padukone to get ready for the MET Gala or Ranveer Singh to decide his new, eccentric #OOTD. But, a nine-year old girl is recreating the same within just 45 minutes, and you know what her looks are made of? Waffles, garbage bags, broccoli, foil paper, etc. Basically, household items. Riley Dashwood is an Australian kid who does entertaining transformations and shares her views, her interpretations on Instagram of outfits worn by famous celebs, be it Bollywood or Hollywood. All her looks are planned in advance over the weekend with her parents. You will be mind-blown ahead! 1. Riley And Ranveer Singh, Who Wore It Better? © Instagram/Riley Dashwood Ranveer Singh has nailed the contemporary look in a black Bandhgala made with leaf motifs. Riley went ahead with a black tee and stuck golden leaves on it. She recreated Ranveer's beard on herself with a sketch pen. Is this even real? 2. Inspired By Lil Pump © Instagram/Riley Dashwood See those tattoos and that metallic chain on her, now who's the exact Lil Pump here? We are still guessing! 3. All The Veggie Lovers © Instagram/Riley Dashwood Riley didn't even leave the veggies in her refrigerator. Rather took them out and remade Nicki Minaj's green and white wig look. She used cauliflower, lettuce and broccoli for her hairstyle. 4. Take A Bow © Instagram/Riley Dashwood A garbage bag has never looked so chic on anyone, ever before. Look at Riley trying to work out Rihanna's oversized black jacket look. 5. When Beyonce Was Pregnant... © Instagram/Riley Dashwood Here's a self explanatory picture of Riley where she wears a red dress and says "I'd like to announce to everyone that I have a balloon". 6. Greedy, ATM © Instagram/Riley Dashwood Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton Dress And Riley in Waffles. This is way beyond imagination. I so wish I could eat those waffles myself.
  5. Ever since 'Game of Thrones' came to a disappointing and unsatisfactory ending, people are back to talking about how the greatest TV show on Earth will always be 'Breaking Bad'. But, there's a new HBO show that's coming for both 'GOT' and 'Breaking Bad'. As the name suggests, 'Chernobyl' depicts the events of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster that occurred in the Soviet Union in April 1986, and the events that followed it. The miniseries basically dramatizes “the true story of one of the worst man-made catastrophes in history and tells of the brave men and women who sacrificed themselves to save Europe from unimaginable disaster. The miniseries focuses on the heartbreaking scope of the nuclear plant disaster that occurred in Soviet Ukraine in April 1986, revealing how and why it happened and telling the shocking, remarkable stories of the heroes who fought and fell.” Since it's based on real-life events, it's already very interesting because everyone can just basically see what went down, but the actual show is already receiving so much praise and there are still two more parts left to air in this five-part series. Just look at the ratings. Comparing it to 'GOT', And, 'Breaking Bad'. Before 'Breaking Bad' and 'GOT' fans (are there any left?) come for me, yes, there are not that many people who have rated this new series and maybe that's why it has a better rating, but I'm just talking about the current numbers, okay thanks. A lot of fans are agreeing as well. Just finished episode 1. 𥽠#Chernobyl pic.twitter.com/nq0fOgOj4d — Rachael Stark (@RNJohnston) May 23, 2019 Starting it tonight. Chernobyl is so gooooood. Should watch it. pic.twitter.com/p9CIVvCxiP — Taufiq Sharif ð¤°ð½ (@taufiqqsharif) May 23, 2019 Yep. When #GameofThrones finishes and #Chernobyl quietly becomes the top TV show of all time... Unbelievable ðpic.twitter.com/oYo5Y2g0js — Sky Atlantic (@skyatlantic) May 23, 2019 Need to watch. This show is all types of fucked up. Holy shit, it's a good show but Chernobyl was on some next level shit. pic.twitter.com/WkglNNE7ZF — @barbaricmango got suspended (@FrankNiggakina) May 23, 2019 Hotstar, for the win. If you cancelled your HBO subscription after Thrones you're missing out Chernobyl is incredible — Ryan Zwe Wuerfel (@ZwebackHD) May 23, 2019 Hope it lives up the hype. Chernobyl on Sky Atlantic / HBO is quickly becoming one of the most terrifying and highly engaging dramas I've watched all year. — Scott Bryan (@scottygb) May 22, 2019 Yep.

  6. 'Necessity is the mother of invention'. This honestly seems like some ancient desi proverb at this point because it exactly applies to 'jugaad' and no one in the world does that better than Indians. If there's a problem, there's always a solution, even if it doesn't look like one. I've always said that if it's stupid and it works, it's not stupid, and looks like even Anand Mahindra agrees. He's always pretty active on Twitter admiring or sharing new stuff and this time he decided to share what looks like a Whatsapp forward video just because it was that innovative. What do you do when you don't have an excavator but just a 'charpai' or a 'khatiya'? Well, here it is- I think the phrase 'Necessity is the mother of invention' was invented by Indians! Here's a new product our Farm & Construction sectors will have to consider as a replacement for an excavator: A 'Khatiya-vator'. #whatsappwonderbox pic.twitter.com/av3qNdIAHd — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) May 21, 2019 Well, that's pretty cool. The most surprising part for me is someone like Anand Mahindra scouting through all the Whatsapp messages and videos he recieves to find stuff like that. Am i going to hell for laughing at this? pic.twitter.com/R5HSnSc14l — Harsha ð®ð³ (@SriNow) May 21, 2019 Someone replied with more innovations. Our farmers have invented one more than one ...... Another example . pic.twitter.com/8jofVuNSID — AJAY GHANGHAS ð®ð³ð (@AJAYGHANGHAS16) May 21, 2019 Wow. This is not surprising.... my father made a cooler with an oil cane which costs only 250 rupees. And the interedting thing is that this cooler gives much cooling than a symphony cooler. And it works with solar energy saves electricity bill. — Viren Sharma (@SonuSha7409) May 21, 2019 Yep. Only we Indians can find another use for a 'Khatiya' in the daytime like thisðð — Charuhas (@charuhasmujumd1) May 21, 2019 Why does it sound like something Doofenshmirtz would make? 'Khatiya-vator' sounds cool ð — Harleen Kaur (@HarleenParmar) May 21, 2019 Someone literally gave the definition of jugaad. An instant solution to the problem raised by the demand of situations. Moreover the solution provided by an instant action may not be the permanent solution but good enough to meet the present. May be called "Juggat" in sanskrit and "Jugadd" in hindi — Abhrankash (@abhrankashdas) May 21, 2019
  7. Less than a month ago, when Gomathi Marimuthu stood atop the Asian Athletics Championships podium after winning the gold medal in the 800-m race in Doha, Qatar, she had a nation of more than 1.3 billion people standing behind her in support. Her story, full of pain and agony, inspired people from all over the world. The tales of her late father, sacrificing his diet just so his daughter could get the nourishment to one day represent India in an international event and make the nation proud, reached every street, every gully of the country and garnered support both financially and emotionally. "When I used to do sports, my father had a leg ailment and he was unable to walk. He had a two-wheeler and that was a big deal for us back then. We did not have good bus facility to go to the city, there was no electricity in my town and the roads weren't good either," the athlete had said in a press conference after the win. "If I woke up at 4 a.m., I could catch the 4.30 bus. So my father would wake me up at 4, sharp, putting an alarm. If my mother was not feeling well, my father only would give me water, boil milk... all these things he would only do," she added. However, her legacy may be in great trouble after the 30-year-old was tested positive in a doping test with a banned steroid at the Asian Athletics Championships in April and now, a four-year-long suspension from the tracks is staring at Marimuthu in the face. © Reuters It is believed that Gomathi was tested positive for yet another doping test almost a month ahead of Doha Asians and during the Federation Cup but the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) seemed to make no news of it. “We have zero tolerance to doping. As far as we are concerned, she is immediately suspended provisionally. She has the right to get her 'B' sample tested. If she is innocent and her 'B' sample is okay, we take her back, otherwise, straight away she is suspended for four years,” says Adille Sumariwalla, the AFI president. “We tested all those who were not in the national camp when they came here for the Federation Cup but the results came late,” said chief national coach Bahadur Singh. “That is also one reason why we have confirmatory trials for the non-National campers.” If Marimuthu does send her 'B' sample for testing and if they also turn out to be positive, not only will the athlete be suspended for four years but she will also be stripped off of her Asian medal, taking away one of three gold medals from the Indian contingent.
  8. Apple has refreshed its MacBook Pro laptops with new and powerful Intel core processors, which means you'll now get better performance out of these MacBooks. In fact, Apple says these are the fastest MacBook Pro laptops it has ever made. That's cool, but the most important change here is the new keyboard. Apple has been receiving a lot of flak for making poor keyboards for a long time now, so we hope these new ones are better. The company didn't provide any details, but we do know that they've changed the material used in its butterfly switch keyboards to avoid the problem of producing double keystrokes. © Apple As for the spec bump, here's how powerful the new MacBook Pro models are: The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bat now comes with faster 8th gen processors. The base model packs a 2.4GHz quad-core Core i5 CPU with Turbo Boost speed up to 4.1GHz, and you can configure the notebook with a beefier 2.8GHz quad-core Core i7 CPU if you're willing to shell out more cash. The non-Touch Bar model sadly hasn't received a spec bump, so the new base 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is now 2.3x faster than the fastest dual-core non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro that's available. As for the 15-inch MacBook Pros, well these are show stoppers. Apple has updated the 15-inch MacBook Pro models with 9th gen Intel core processors. The base model here comes with a 2.6GHz six-core Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost speed up to 4.5GHz. Meanwhile, the top end variant comes fitted with a 2.3GHz eight-core Core i9 processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.8GHz. © Apple There's also a variant with a 2.4GHz eight-core Core i9 processor with Turbo Boost up to 5GHz. That, of course, will cost you a lot of money, but it's the fastest MacBook Pro laptop that Apple has ever made to date. All the 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Radeon Pro 555x and 560x discrete graphics, depending on the model you're picking. Let's hope these new ones won't have any heating issues. Pricing & Availability The new MacBook Pro lineup starts at Rs. 1,59,900 for the 13-inch with Touch Bar model, whereas the 15-inch model will come at a starting price of Rs 1,99,900. These updated MacBook Pro laptops will be available in India starting this week and you'll be able to pick one up from Apple Authorised resellers across the country.
  9. If there is one thing that every true blue fan of a superhero movie, TV series or anime franchise feels very strongly about, it is attending every comic con held in their region and coming up with the best cosplay costume out there for it. Because, if you think about it, what would be the fun in attending such events celebrating the characters we love, if not for the fan-atics stepping out in their best costumes and making us witness our favourite characters come to life before our eyes? However, while most of us want to dress up like our favourite characters and head to the events amidst a lot of hooting, and multiple photo-ops and free-flowing appreciation that follows, there is one thing in particular that holds us back. The huge-ass hole that the entire project of creating a costume from scratch burns into our pockets. Trust us, we have been there. Right from scrounging for the perfect materials, to creating the accessories and props to go with it, it's a hell lot of work (and fun). However, not everyone can expend that much energy or resources on the activity, and that is the sad truth. But don't lose hope just yet because it seems a young man from Thailand has found the ultimate low-cost hack of nailing cosplay costumes. Anucha Sangchart from Bangkok has been creating real low-cost cosplay costumes for a while now, and has close to 4 million followers on his page Lowcostcosplay on Facebook. The page features hundreds of out-of-the-box ways of nailing cosplay on social media at the very least, if not for bigger events. People love his creations (some of which are downright hilarious), and keep coming back for more. However, what caught our attention this time, were some of his cosplay costume ideas for 'Game of Thrones'. They are apt, on-point and so good they'll crack you up despite yourself. 1. Nailed The Night King 2. Dracarys All The Way 3. Jon Snow Didn't See That Coming 4. The White Walker Who's Actually A Nightmare 5. Even Khaleesi Wouldn't Question This Dude's Creativity 6. OMG Cersei, Is That You? 7. MOUNTAIN!
  10. When Activision announced the Call of Duty Mobile, I was kind of sceptical. As excited as I was, it mostly sounded as if Activision was trying to jump the bandwagon of PUBG Mobile. The last thing I wanted was Activision and Tencent fleshing out a half-baked title. Well, the battle royale mode of Call of Duty Mobile went live yesterday for beta users on Android, so I decided to check it out. Honestly, it only took me just a few rounds of the game to realise that it's very different from PUBG Mobile. In a good way. In fact, I'd say it's exceptional. Here's why I think so: © Call of Duty Mobile A 'Scout' Or A 'Clown'? Pick Your Poison! As soon as you start the battle royale mode, you won't be dropped in a server for matchmaking. Instead, you'll get an option to select and customise your loadout, which I found to be very similar to the Team Deathmatch mode of the game. Within the loadout screen, you can also choose to select your 'Class'. © Call of Duty Mobile Yes, there are a total of six classes to choose from. You can either play as a Scout, Clown, Medic, Ninja, Defender or Mechanic. Depending on the class you choose, you'll get special perks. Playing as a 'Scout', for instance, you'll get a 'Sensor Dart', with which you can see the hostile position in the radar map. As a 'Medic' you'll be able to set up a medical station that heals you and allies continuously. Yes, it's very similar to the 'Lifeline' Legend in Respawn's 'Apex Legends'. I am not going to get into details and spoil the fun, so I suggest you check out other classes and their perks once you get your hands on the title when it arrives. It's awesome! © Call of Duty Mobile The ability to select the class of your player by itself is a huge differentiator which makes this game very different, and in fact, much better than PUBG. Don't get me wrong, PUBG's simple BR approach isn't bad. But I was kind of getting bored with it. If you're too, then you'll love the Call of Duty Mobile's Battle Royale mode. Where We Droppin' Once you select your loadout and you're good to go, you'll find yourself in the lobby waiting for other players to join in. You'll then be joining 100 other players before getting dropped into the map. If you're playing in a squad or duos, one of the players will be a designated 'Jump Leader', who'll get the players to a select spot in the map. Again, very similar to Apex Legends' 'Jump Master' feature. © Call of Duty Mobile Instead of taking a parachute, as you would in PUBG Mobile, here you'll be gliding down with the help of a wingsuit. Is it better? Hell yes! I was able to fly across the map and land exactly where I wanted to every single time. It's quick and incredibly smooth. From there on, it's pretty much the same gameplay experience. You'll have to collect weapons and other loot and jump right into the action. Your character will automatically pick up all the necessary items from the ground, so you don't really have to worry about it. Just make sure you improvise and look for better loot as you progress through the game. I want to say the experience is very similar to PUBG, but that's not really the case. A Tactical Shootout Call of Duty Mobile offers a military-style tactical experience. Unlike PUBG Mobile's fancy skins, all players are well-camouflaged from the start, so it's incredibly hard to find out where they are. You really have to rely on the sound of the footsteps or their weapons. © Call of Duty Mobile Depending on the 'Class' you chose earlier in the game, you'll be able to use the perks and get some tactical advantage too. I spent most of the time playing as a 'Scout' player, so I was constantly using it to scan the area and find enemies. It was a lot of fun. The game also has vehicles, and trust me, there are a lot of them. From a two-person ATV to a squad Helicopter, there's literally a lot to choose from. Just make sure you know what you're getting yourself into. © Call of Duty Mobile Before wrapping it up, I'd also like to point out that you can revive your teammates even once they've died. Yes, this isn't something you can do in PUBG Mobile. In Call of Duty Mobile, you can pick up your dead teammate's 'Dogtag' and revive them to bring them back into the action. It's very similar to how you can revive your teammates in some modern battle royale titles like Apex Legends, Fortnite, etc. The Final Say Call of Duty Mobile is a kickass battle royale title that lets you explore to your fullest abilities. It's unlike any other tactical game I've played on mobile, so I'll give full marks for that. If you've played Call Of Duty 4's 'Blackout' mode on PC, Xbox One or PS4, then you'll find yourself right at home. It's very similar to that, which is just awesome. As I mentioned earlier, I was getting bored with PUBG Mobile, to be honest, so I had an amazing time with all the new features like the ability to select classes, customise loadout, etc. If you're bored of PUBG Mobile or Fortnite too, then you'll have a great time slaying enemies in Call of Duty Mobile. Well, at least until there's a new battle royale game in town.
  11. Spoiler ahead. “You are my queen”. You can literally make a 'Game of Thrones' drinking game based on this one line because that was basically the extent of Jon Snow's dialogues this season. Jon Snow was always one of my favourite characters throughout all the seasons, and not just because he's 'pretty', but seeing him reduced to basically a 'yes, ma'am' person towards the end was disappointing to watch, to say the least. After thinking of himself as a bastard child, he found out he was the rightful heir to the iron throne and the one true king. He literally died and came back to life. But, it seemed like everything was for nothing. He has always proved how honourable he is, he's always looked out for everyone, he literally killed the person he loved because people would be better off without her. His duty became the death of his love. And, even after so much, he doesn't become the king? I know he doesn't want, he never wanted that but he was born for it and everyone whon knew about his true identity knew that and wanted him to come to power. What was the point of so much build-up regarding his identity - which even got Varys killed - when it was all forgotten immediately. Ever since Tyrion found out about Jon being a Targaryen, he wanted him to be King and own the Iron Throne and not Daenerys. But, what happened towards the end when Tyrion suggested Bran as the new king? Did he just forget that Jon exists or what? It honestly didn't make sense. I want to know why his true identity was hyped up so much for it to not even come up in the end. Only a handful people knew he was a Targaryen before he killed Dany and then the secret was just kept with the same people? No one thought of actually calling upon the true heir to take up his rightful place? Not even Sam? Then, there was the whole season cliffhanger with his death, and then him coming back to life because of the Lord of Light. We kind of saw why Beric came back to life, to save Arya so she could kill the Night King. But, what was Jon's purpose of coming back? It couldn't be to kill Dany since she probably wouldn't have become 'Mad Queen' if she never even knew who Jon was because him having a better claim to the throne than her was one of the major factors that led her to burn down King's Landing. So, his resurrection was for nothing? I can think of a couple of alternating endings for him. He could've become king after killing Dany and then just became ruthless and started killing people like her in a few years. Becoming what he once saved everyone from. It would've been such a twisted ending, but trust me, it would've been better, to be honest. Or, Drogon could've tried to kill him instead of burning down the iron throne and he could've come out of the fire unburnt since he is a Targaryen as well. Or something interesting other than just him going back to where he started - the Night's Watch, which technically shouldn't exist since the Night King is dead. It was a proper full circle for his character but I wish the writers had broken the wheel. The entire ending was a letdown after a ten-year and eight-season build-up and Jon's ending was the most disappointing for me since he deserved so much more. #JusticeForJon
  12. Whether you have a desk job or you're an athlete, a good night's sleep is important for all. Not getting enough or not getting quality sleep results in feeling drowsy at the office, low performance, irritability and more coffee. For an athlete who`s training hard, this translates to poor recovery between sessions, fatigue and higher chances of a crash and burn. In this article, I`m going to give you science-based pointers which can improve your sleep quality: 1. Use Blue Light Blockers: Ideally, you should be avoiding mobile and laptop screens a few hours before your bedtime because blue light from them mess up with melatonin production and thus interfering with your sleep. © Getty Images If still by any chance, you can`t avoid it, you should be using blue light filtering apps. Remember, these apps only reduce the blue light, not completely eliminate it. Latest smartphones are coming with pre-installed night mode features. In case you don`t have one, you can install “Twilight” app built for Android. iPhone generally has the same feature with the name “Nightshift”. This will ensure less strain on eyes before you want to hit the bed. 2. Massage: Remember when you were a kid/infant and would have a sound sleep after a soothing massage from your mother? Well, that`s because massage helps in relaxing your muscles resulting in better sleep. According to the research gathered by American Massage Therapy Association, massage improves the sleep of everyone ranging from infants, children, adults and individuals with various medical disorders. The best thing about a massage is that you can do it yourself as well. Areas that are easy to self-massage include – scalp, neck, foot, wrist, arms, legs and shoulders. 3. Meditate: Multiple studies support the claim of regular meditation that can help fight insomnia and help to fall asleep quick. Not only this, but meditation at night is also proven to increase melatonin levels. Melatonin is a hormone released at night which regulates sleep cycles. When your body does not get enough Melatonin, it's not getting the signal to sleep which makes you stay awake late at night. © Getty Images Synthetic melatonin supplements are also used by people suffering from insomnia or have trouble falling asleep at night. So, give meditation a try before you reach out to that bottle containing pills of melatonin. 15-30 minutes of meditation is all you need. Meditation also gives anti-ageing benefits, so you are killing two birds with one stone. 4.Warm /Hot Water Bath: It is proven that taking a hot/warm water shower right before bed relaxes muscles, reduces anxiety and reduces body stiffness which increases your chances of a good night's sleep. This drop in body temperature after a bath before bed also makes you sleepy. 5. Supplement Magnesium:- Magnesium is involved in more than 300 enzymatic reactions inside our body. It is needed for many processes inside the body yet most of us don`t get the basic daily requirements for magnesium. © Getty Images Magnesium has a calming effect on the body, making it useful for reducing blood pressure and building deep sleep patterns. Dosage is generally 300-500mg a day. In one of the multiple studies conducted to prove its impact on sleep, a group of older adults suffering from insomnia, which included difficulty in getting to sleep, early awakening or feeling unrefreshed upon waking, showed significant improvement after supplementing with magnesium. Not only this, but magnesium also helps in the absorption of Calcium and VitD3 and not getting enough causes muscle cramps and irritability.

  13. Netflix has been at the forefront of streaming video content for consumers and is actively looking to make the experience even better. At first, the company rolled out 4K and HDR support for many of their originals and now, the company is investing in another experiential feature. © Unsplash Netflix has announced that the company is bringing "studio quality” sound for content on its platform that will enhance the overall experience of a viewer. The company is increasing the audio bitrate up to 640 kbps on devices that support 5.1 surround sound and up to 768 kbps for Dolby Atmos. The audio quality will be adaptive similar to how video quality adjusts according to your internet speed. There is a catch though, the high-quality audio will only be available for Premium Subscribers. © Unsplash According to Netflix, “Our high-quality sound feature is not lossless, but it is perceptually transparent. That means that while the audio is compressed, it is indistinguishable from the original source. Based on internal listening tests, listening test results provided by Dolby, and scientific studies, we determined that for Dolby Digital Plus at and above 640 kbps, the audio coding quality is perceptually transparent. Beyond that, we would be sending you files that have a higher bitrate (and take up more bandwidth) without bringing any additional value to the listening experience.” These changes were inspired by a viewing session with the Duffer Brothers, where they were left unimpressed during a screening of 'Stranger Things' Season 2. Since then, Netflix has improved the bitrate for the show to meet expectations of audiences and the Duffer Brothers.
  14. After making us wait for almost two years, the final season of 'Game Of Thrones', one of the greatest shows ever made, is going to drop in a few hours. Finally that time is here when people will exit all their Whatsapp groups, delete their social media apps and stop answering phone calls, JUST to avoid getting any spoilers. This is the time when your real fandom will be tested. HBO While everyone is busy asking, "Who will sit on the throne?" if there was one for the greatest fan, we know who would sit on it. This guy who recreated the dragon egg from scratch and made it look better than the one used in the show. YouTube This might be a 5-minute long video, but the hard work that went behind making this is over 40 hours. This dragon egg was made by Rextorn Metalwork, a design shop in Poland. YouTube This guy, whom I will now call the biggest fan of GOT, used various techniques like repousse and metal spinning, to turn a copper sheet into a gorgeous and flawless dragon egg. There is honestly no dearth of talent in the world and almost every other day, someone somewhere is proving it right.
  15. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sourav Ganguly are considered to be two of the most successful skippers of the Indian cricket team, especially in the modern era, when India truly came out to become a giant in the world of the game and in the hearts of its followers. Having said that, the two leaders are completely opposite to each other when it comes to their characteristics and their nature in general. While Dhoni is known to keep his cool even under extremely testing conditions Ganguly was famous for his exceptionally outspoken and energetic attitude. But after the recent incidents of the Indian Premier League matchup between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, Dhoni's antics have blurred the line between 'Captain Cool' and Dada as the leader of the Men in Blue. On one hand, we have Sourav Ganguly's 17-year-old iconic moment of extreme joy in which the Kolkata-born took off his shirt and swirled it around in celebration of his team's victory against the notorious English team at the Lords Stadium during the 2002 Natwest series. Ashamed of his way of celebrating the win, Ganguly even addressed the incident to journalist Barkha Dutt he said: “Everybody says that it's the most iconic moment. But I wouldn't do it again. My daughter sees it asks why did you do that and I say because I was happy. I came from a very conservative and shy Bengali family. It just happened in the heat of the moment.” On the other hand, someone who was considered to be cool as a cucumber turned out to have a nasty temper. After the umpire's decision to revert from the 'no-ball' call, Dhoni left behind his persona as 'Captain Cool' and demanded an honest answer from the officials as he charged into the field from the dugout, after being ousted by Ben Stokes a delivery before. When MS Dhoni lost his cool Boss..... pic.twitter.com/v4wJ7r98pf — Shakti Solanki (@shaktisolanki00) April 12, 2019 Having said that, people are having a tough time choosing between the two iconic moments of Indian cricket: Ganguly - Shirt wave at Lord's balcony Dhoni - Storming the field at Jaipur Kohli - ??? — Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) April 12, 2019 Ganguly's Legendary shirt waving was proud moment which was an answer to Flintoff, While Dhoni storming at field is no GOOD moment Kohli - Showing middle finger to Australian crowd — Harsh Bhatt (@IamH4rshBhatt) April 12, 2019 FYI..Ganguly's shirt wave >>>>> Dhoni storming into field. — rohit ranjan رÙÛت (@rht_ranjan) April 12, 2019 Taking shirt off and running through Oxford Street on 14th of july — Chetan JS (@jschetan) April 12, 2019 Lords — VaiBhAv (@vaibysays) April 12, 2019
  16. Sleep is very important for human function. Not just from the bodybuilding perspective but also from the perspective of good health and performance. © Getty Images Poor sleeping habits can not only sabotage your fitness goals but it will also be harmful to your overall health in the long run. Now, there are various sleep boosting supplements available out there in the marking claiming to be effective sleep enhancers but I am going to discuss only the ones that actually work. Disclaimer: None of these supplements is a pure recommendation. They are just suggestions. Consult your doctor before taking any of these. 1. Magnesium Magnesium performs various essential biological functions including neurotransmitter synthesis. However, due to poor eating patterns people these days fail to take the recommended daily dosage of magnesium through diet. This eventually leads to various behavioural changes like stress and anxiety. Research conducted at the University of Geneva established a possible correlation between magnesium levels and sleep quality. In this research, subjects who supplemented with magnesium and whose magnesium levels were higher in the blood were able to have a more restful sleep as compared to people who were deficient. Thus, magnesium supplements can actually help you to enhance your quality of sleep. Start with a small dosage of 200mg to see the tolerance of your body and then increase the dosage according to your needs. 2. Ashwagandha According to research published in U.S national library of Medicine, Ashwagandha leaves contain 'triethylene glycol' which is a compound that has been found very useful in inducing sleep in humans. Another important finding of this study was that supplementing ashwagandha also increases the quality of sleep as subjects who took Ashwagandha supplements were able to go in the 'deep sleep' mode. Another advantage of Ashwagandha as a sleep supplement is that the body does not become addicted to it. You can stop taking Ashwagandha once you don't feel the need to take it anymore. © Getty Images 3. Valerian Valerian is a sleep-boosting herb that is more commonly used in the United States and Europe. However, these days you can find valerian herb supplements in the Indian online market too. According to a study published in the US National Library of Medicine, valerian has proven benefits to enhance the quality of sleep. These benefits come with no side effects like morning hangovers. Valerian is a potent herb thus you want to make sure that you start consuming it only in small amounts. 4. Melatonin Melatonin is a common over the counter drug that is generally prescribed to get rid of jet lag and to manage any kind of sleep disturbances. It is helpful in managing unbalanced circadian rhythms from jet lag. According to a study published in the National Library of Medicine, evidence exists to prove that melatonin may reduce the time it takes for people to fall asleep. However, melatonin is not a supplement that you can play around with. If you are taking concentrated melatonin alone, make sure to start with a low dosage. Compound supplements that contain melatonin as one of the components contain melatonin in small doses only which you may not worry about. Though the above supplements can help you to increase the quality of your sleep, it is always better to let your body do its routine activities without any supplements. Use any of these supplements to manage your sleep and discontinue when you feel that your sleeping cycles have become better.

  17. Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone XR, an 'affordable' iPhone that shared many of the same hardware features as the more expensive XS and XS Max. The iPhone XR turned out to be our favorite iPhone of the bunch last year, and you can read our review here. Now, Samsung has launched the new Galaxy S10e which follows the same footsteps. The Galaxy S10e is a compact phone that shares a lot of hardware advancements added in the standard Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus. So, we decided to compare them & find out which one's a better affordable flagship. Here's how they compare: Display © YouTube Samsung's Galaxy S10e features a 5.8-inch 2280 x 1080 OLED display, whereas Apple's iPhone XR sports a 6.1-inch 1792 x 828 LCD display. Both, on paper and in the real world, the Galaxy S10e is a better-looking display. Samsung's OLED is crisp, bright, and vibrant, just like any other flagship phone's display. That's not to say that the iPhone XR's display is bad by any means. It's one of the best LCD panels around, but it can't quite match the OLED display. When it comes to the cutouts, the Galaxy S10e has a punch-hole design, which Samsung likes to call an 'Infinity-O' display. The iPhone XR, on the other hand, uses the same notch as the iPhone XS and the XS Max as it packs the same FaceID system. Both are equally intrusive when it comes to content consumption like videos, etc. but again, the Galaxy S10e display's looks more modern and just better in person. Winner: Samsung Galaxy S10e Performance © YouTube The iPhone XR is powered by Apple's A12 bionic chip, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S10e model, which we used, is powered by an Exynos 9820 SoC. Apple's iPhones typically beat Samsung's when it comes to processor performance. Even the Snapdragon 855 SoC is no match. Of course, you won't find much of a difference in everyday tasks, but the A12 Bionic is a beast. As for the RAM and storage, the Galaxy S10e is equipped with 6GB RAM, double the RAM in the iPhone XR. It sounds like a small number of paper, but Apple is traditionally known to make better use of low RAM, thanks to the deep integration between hardware and software. When it comes to the storage options, the base variant of the Galaxy S10e comes with 128GB storage & the iPhone XR's base variant comes with 64GB. BTW, you can also expand the storage via a microSD card on the Galaxy S10e, but you can't do that with the iPhone XR. Winner: iPhone XR Biometrics © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Apple's FaceID system is the best in the business, and seriously there's no match to it. Even the Galaxy S10e has a facial recognition system, but Apple's system is more reliable and secure. But thankfully, the Galaxy S10e has a physical fingerprint scanner on the side. Yes, it's a deviation from Galaxy S10 devices that have an under-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, but that's better because the Galaxy S10e's scanner is more fast and reliable than that of the standard S10 variants. Both phones, however, have strong points when it comes to biometrics. With the Galaxy S10e you get a physical scanner, whereas the iPhone XR has the reliable FaceID. So, you can't go wrong with either of them. Winner: It's a tie. Camera © YouTube Both the iPhone XR and the Galaxy S10e have scaled back on the rear camera to, you know, cut down on cost. However, the iPhone XR uses a single-lens camera while the Galaxy S10e has a dual-lens camera. The S10e features both wide and ultra-wide lenses, while the iPhone XR sports only a single wide-angle lens, with which it can also do portraits. We found both cameras to be equally good. With iPhone XR, you're looking at a typical iPhone camera with a very familiar interface. The images look very crisp, natural and true-to-life, which is always something we all can appreciate. With the Galaxy S10e, you'll get a typical Samsung camera which captures, you know, more vibrant and saturated (sometimes over-saturated) images, which one may or may not necessarily like. Unlike the iPhone XR which has a software portrait mode that doesn't work pets, food or anything but people, the Galaxy S10e can handle it all. It doesn't have any limitations. Add an ultra-wide lens to that, you have a very capable camera in your pockets. Winner: It's a tie, again. The Final Say © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Both the iPhone XR and the Galaxy S10e, as you can see, have ups and downs of their own. Apple is offering FaceID, the powerful A12 Bionic chip, great software/ hardware integration, etc. while Samsung is offering a dual-lens rear camera setup, a great OLED display, and expandable storage. However, there are other things to consider like the fact that the Galaxy S10e is a more compact phone, it runs Android instead of iOS, etc. So, at the end of the day, it comes to personal preference. But if you want to an affordable device that packs all the modern day tech, then you really can't go wrong with either of them.
  18. The past two days of the Indian Premier League has seen some rather bizarre series of events taking place that have changed the complete scenario of the matches with outcomes absolutely different from what the viewers were expecting. We are talking about the matches that took place between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Friday, and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Saturday. You did not even have to look carefully to realise how similar the two games got in the final overs of the second innings, respectively. Let's start by talking about the game between RCB and KKR. During the 17th over Bangalore's bowling, it was Mohammad Siraj who bowled his second dangerous beamer of the match and had to give up the rest of the over with four deliveries left. During this situation, RCB captain, Virat Kohli was standing at the boundary, waiting for the situation to untangle itself. It was only after the umpire had taken the ball away from Siraj that the RCB captain ran down to the pitch to decide what needs to happen. Eventually, he decided to give the ball to Marcus Stoins and KKR's Andre Russell had himself a grand feast. Ruthless. Relentless. Russel ðªð¥ The absolute hitting that led to this though ðð@KKRiders @Russell12A #RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/4Ou1HzYS34 — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 5, 2019 Now, let's talk about the match between CSK and KXIP. In the second last over of Chennai's bowling, Deepak Chahar bowls back to back beamers at Sarfaraz Khan, who manages to hit a four on the first but takes a single on the second to give the strike to David Miller. This is where MS Dhoni steps in to have a word with the youngblood. Visibly upset with the consecutive no-balls, Dhoni lets Chahar hear it. It felt more like a discussion between an angry school teacher and a student who keeps quiet with hands at the back the whole time. Moment of the day. #DeepakChahar was almost in tears after a terrible start to the over. Couldn't look into the eyes of #Dhoni. Would love to know what from Chahar himself on what was said. Because clearly after this, he seemed a different bowler altogether. #CSKvKXIP #VIVOIPL pic.twitter.com/iwq3yVXjtI — Abhishek Barthur (@imabhi27) April 6, 2019 Instantly, Chahar looked like a different player altogether. After two scary yorkers he ended the over by dismissing Miller. We could not have made this up. One day after another, the two leaders of the Indian cricket team were put in similar spot but while one chose to continue to abuse at his players from the boundary line, the other decided to find out what's wrong with his teammate, shared a few words of wisdom and encouraged him to be the best version of himself.
  19. Apple's AirPods are now an iconic piece of hardware that has now become more of a status symbol. Even though it was met with much criticism at launch, the cultural impact of these earbuds can't be ignored. We've already seen companies like Samsung trying to get a piece of the pie with Galaxy Buds and now it's Amazon's turn. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla According to a report from Bloomberg, Amazon is now looking to make their own version of AirPods that will also have support for Alexa. The true wireless earphones are expected to look exactly like the AirPods but will apparently have better sound. Apple already launched the new Powerbeats Pro to further their hold in the true wireless market with other companies trying to replicate Apple's success. The report said “the Seattle-based e-commerce giant is readying earbuds with built-in Alexa access for as early as the second half of this year, according to people with knowledge of the plans. The headphones will look and act similar to AirPods, but people working on the product inside Amazon are striving for better audio quality, the people said. Like the AirPods, the Amazon earbuds are designed to sit inside users' ears without clips around the ear.” © Apple Amazon's earbuds are expected to work just like Echo products where users will be able to fire up the digital assistant by saying “Alexa”. Users will need to be connected to the internet via an Android or iOS device in order to use the digital assistant. Just like the AirPods, Amazon's wireless earbuds will come with a charging case and will be available in two colours i.e. grey and black. Amazon's earbuds are expected to launch sometime in 2019 and we can expect it to be priced similar to the AirPods. Source: Bloomberg
  20. Earlier this week, the Powerbeats Pro were spotted in an iOS update and has now been made official by Apple. The company's Beats division is now making its mark in the true wireless earphones market and will be available to buy from this May. The Powerbeats Pro is going to be more expensive than the AirPods i.e. $250 (Rs 17,200 Approx) and reportedly offers better sound quality. The Powerbeats Pro is also expected to last longer than before and comes with Apple's new H1 chip that can also be found on the new AirPods. The H1 Chip enables the new AirPods to fire up Siri by simply saying the command “Hey Siri”. The wireless earbuds also offer a more secure and comfortable fit as compared to the AirPods. © Apple Beats This reduces sound leakage which has been the only known issue with AirPods. It works similar to the AirPods with the ability to control volume and tracks with any of the two earbuds. The earbuds also automatically play/pause when they are removed from your ear. © Apple The Powebeats Pro is expected to last for up to nine hours or up to 24 hours of playback time with the charging case. The charging case also has a fast-charging feature that can give the earbuds an additional 1.5 hours of usage after five minutes of charge. As of now, there is no word whether we will get to see the Powerbeats Pro launch in India.
  21. Even though Apple announced an updated version of the AirPods, the company accidentally revealed a brand new true wireless earphone that is expected to launch soon. According to a report by 9to5Mac, the company is expected to launch its second true wireless earphones. Apple mistakenly left animations and images inside the iOS 12.2. update which shows off the new Powerbeats wireless earphones. © 9to5Mac The new earphones will be called 'Powerbeats Pro' and will replace the Powerbeats 3 which has better sound quality than the AirPods. It will have a tight seal which is a major missing feature of the AirPods and also has swappable tips. These tips will add better water and sweat resistance for the earphones and keep them in place. The new AirPods come with Apple's H1 chip which could also be included in the Powerbeats Pro. The new chip enables the new AirPods to have an always-listening feature which simply allows users to activate Siri by saying “Hey Siri” © 9to5Mac The Powerbeats 3 offered 12 hours of battery and we could only guess what the Powerbeats Pro is expected to offer. The pricing of the unexpected wireless earphones is also unknown but could be a bit more expensive than the AirPods. The Powerbeats are also expected to launch in two colours i.e. white and black which should be a saving grace for many users. Black AirPods have been one of the most requested product by Apple Fans, and we may just see it on a different set of wireless earbuds for now. We can only be sure of the price and battery life once Apple announces the Powerbeats Pro officially. Source: 9to5Mac

  23. On Tuesday, around 11 AM, a time when most of us were either waking up or getting ready or stuck in traffic; PM Modi was busy writing a tweet that was about to shake the nation to its core, the moment he clicked the post button. He wrote this, "I would be addressing the nation at around 11:45 AM - 12.00 noon with an important message. Do watch the address on television, radio or social media." This tweet sent everyone into a frenzy and reminded them of the day when PM Modi suddenly announced Demonetisation. Panic amongst public rose to another level when PM Modi didn't turn up at 11:45 to make the announcement, and he was half an hour late. मà¥à¤°à¥ पà¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤°à¥ दà¥à¤¶à¤µà¤¾à¤¸à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤, à¤à¤ सवà¥à¤°à¥ लà¤à¤­à¤ 11.45 - 12.00 बà¤à¥ मà¥à¤ à¤à¤ महतà¥à¤µà¤ªà¥à¤°à¥à¤£ सà¤à¤¦à¥à¤¶ लà¥à¤à¤° à¤à¤ª à¤à¥ बà¥à¤ à¤à¤à¤à¤à¤¾à¥¤ I would be addressing the nation at around 11:45 AM - 12.00 noon with an important message.

Well, that's because we were standing in a queue outside the ATM near our office. Don't lie, you too checked your wallet and your bank balance,right? Jokes apart, the announcement had nothing to do with Demonetisation, so your money is safe. In the journey of every nation there are moments that bring utmost pride and have a historic impact on generations to come. One such moment is today. India has successfully tested the Anti-Satellite (ASAT) Missile. Congratulations to everyone on the success of #MissionShakti. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 PM Modi's special announcement was about 'Mission Shakti', an operation under which an Indian-made anti-satellite weapon called A-SAT shot down a live satellite on a low earth orbit. In fact, with this India has become the fourth country after Russia, the US and China to get this technology. An important message to the nation. Watch. https://t.co/0LEOATgOOQ — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 Well, this is indeed a remarkable achievement for the nation, but by this time, Twitter was not even bothered about it because they were busy ranting and cracking jokes on demonetisation and PM Modi.

  24. 1More has a stellar lineup of earphones that offer superb sound quality at an unbeatable price. The company's most popular products till date include the 1More Pistons, which Xiaomi licensed and sold at a ridiculously low price, and the 1More Triple Driver earphones, which we think is worth every penny. Now, it looks like 1More is on a quest to make a wireless variant of all its popular wired ones, so we decided to check out their Dual driver BT earphones. I am not a huge fan of neckband-style earphones as they don't fit into my lifestyle. I'd rather go fully wireless and use something like the Bose SoundSport Free or just use a wired pair of earphones and completely avoid the hassle of dealing with cords. But I've been using the 1More Stylish Dual Dynamic Driver BT for a week now, and I have to say that it's indeed a winner. To my surprise, I fell head over heels in love with this pair, and let me tell you why. Here's my review of the 1More Stylish Dual-Dynamic BT earphones: Design As I said, I am not a huge fan of neckband-style earphones in general, but I was ready to make an exception for this mainly because my first impressions were fairly positive. Unlike some pair of neckbands, this one has a soft silicone band that blends into the plastic sound chamber. The band itself is not that thick or heavy, so they felt comfortable for the most part. The left chamber houses the button layout which includes a power button and a volume rocker that also doubles up as the previous/next track function. The buttons are clicky and are very easy to get used to, so no complaints there. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla The wires, which connect to the earphone housings, are fairly thick. I always prefer thick cables like these as they tend to age well over the thin ones. The earphone housing themselves are bigger than average and they protrude out of your ears when you wear them. The protrusion, however, is given considering the fact that they include two drivers inside. Thankfully, 1More bundles a bunch of silicone ear-tips inside the box with which you can find a snug fit. Trust me, that's very important because it can make or break your experience of using this pair of earphones. The medium-sized ear-tips, with which the earphones ship with, weren't good enough for me. It wasn't a snug fit and I couldn't hear the base at all. But switching to the large tips did the trick for me, so it's really important that you find the right fit. I can't stress that enough. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla How Does It Sound? This particular earphone, just like many other 1More earphones, is tuned by Grammy award-winning sound engineer, Luca Bignardi. Not that it should influence your purchase decision, but it's definitely something to consider. If I have to put it in simple terms, then I must say that these earphones sound great. The passive noise isolation, to begin with, is pretty good. I used them primarily during my metro commute and I am happy to report that I couldn't hear all the annoying chatter and announcements around me. Honestly, it made all the difference to me as I could focus on my music at all times. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla The drivers are warmer sounding, thanks to the base bump. It's more pronounced in electronic, pop and rap music, and they're all very enjoyable to listen to. The mids are well-presented as well. However, I found them a bit muddy at times. The high, however, are well-detailed and the earphones have a great sound stage with which I was able to make out individual instruments. That's not really a surprise given 1More's reputation. Their products are known for quality among the audiophile community after all. If I have to compare this pair of earphones with the likes of, say, the OnePlus Bullets wireless or Skullcandy's Ink's Bluetooth wireless earphones, then I'd say I like the 1More's dual-driver BT earphones better. It offers great soundstage, thumping bass, good clarity and everything in between. It's not all roses when it comes to the sound quality though. The microphone definitely needs some work. The call quality is below average and I found myself switching to phone's earpiece almost every time since the other person couldn't hear me properly. Charging & Connectivity The 1More Stylish BT has decent battery life. The company claims that you can listen to music for about 6 hours on a single; however, I was only able to push it to maybe like 4 hours on a single charge. Yes, it's not that impressive, but I am willing to give it a pass mainly due to the fact that it supports fast-charging. Also, it uses a micro-USB cable for charging, which is not a deal-breaker, but definitely worth noting. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla You can fully charge the earphones in just about 50 mins. That, in my opinion, is pretty good. But even if you don't have about 50 minutes to spare, I'd suggest you charge it for like 10-15 minutes to get around 2-3 hours of music playback at, say, about 75 per cent volume. Again, that's not too bad given the fact that it packs two drivers to push. That being said, I highly suggest you keep an eye on the battery level of your phone since the voice prompter is very unreliable, and it alerts about the battery being low until it's about to die. Also, I had paired the 1More Stylish BT with an iPhone XR throughout my testing. These earphones run on Bluetooth v4.2, and I found the connection to be fairly reliable. You can literally leave your phone and move up to 30ft away and still be able to listen to your music. Not too bad, right? I didn't experience any latency issues either while listening to music or while watching videos, so that's great as well. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla Is It Worth It? The 1More Stylish BT is currently retailing for INR 5,499 (https://india.1more.com/collections/earphones-headphones/products/1more-dual-driver-stylish-wireless), which makes it slightly more expensive than the likes of OnePlus Bullets Wireless and the Skullcandy Ink wireless, which I talked about previously. But is it worth the extra money? Well, I'd say yes, especially if you're looking for a pair of bass-heavy neckband-style earphones. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla For me personally, these earphones check all the right boxes in the checklist of what makes a pair of wireless earphones good. Yes, it may sound like an expensive proposition, but it's got great audio quality (better than others in this price range), it's nice and comfortable to wear, and it keeps your music isolated from the din of the outside world.
  25. No one tasted success in the year 2018 like Ayushmann Khurrana did, perhaps except Vicky Kaushal. Whatever he touched turned to gold, and he clearly has decided to keep the momentum going in 2019 as well (he already has started shooting for 'Article 15'). One thing that Ayushmann is as consistent at, just like his acting chops, is his fashion and grooming game. He never stops experimenting, and everything seems to work for him. The latest example? His pornstar moustache. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Ayushmann just won an award for the most popular performer, and along with an amazing tailcoat, he showed off his brand new pornstache - something he's a natural at pulling off. © Instagram/Ishabhansali Don't you love this sharp new look? © Viral Bhayani When it comes to his style game, as usual, stylist Isha Bhansali went the extra mile and made Ayushmann look like a sophisticated Duke from the Victorian era. As if the ladies already weren't weak-kneed! © Instagram/Ishabhansali We're loving the interplay of grey, white, and black in his ensemble. The white bowtie is an unusual quirk that's adding the distinctive vintage look. © Viral Bhayani All we can say is, full marks on the moustache, as well as the outfit, Ayushmann. Now, we can't wait to see the magic you're about to bring to the big screen.
