  1. Samsung has officially unveiled that Galaxy S10 in which there's also a 5G model for the upcoming services that will be rolled out in the U.S. soon. As 5G becomes more readily available, we will see more smartphones with new wireless tech including in phones from OnePlus and other manufacturers. © YouTube However, this is not enough for the U.S. President Donald Trump as he urged wireless carriers to deploy G and "6G" networks "as soon as possible,” What President Trump forgot to check was that 6G tech does not exist at the moment. "I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible," Trump wrote on Twitter this morning. "It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind.” I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible. It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind. There is no reason that we should be lagging behind on......... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 21, 2019 In a second tweet, Trump said that 5G and 6G are "so obviously the future.” 5G is being rolled out sooner than expected and users on a 5G network can download an episode of Game of Thrones in minutes. 5G will also enable users to stream games from the cloud on their devices without any lag. 5G will also let users communicate with each other via 4K video. © BCCL Trump's tweet comes after concerns that Chinese companies like Huawei are ahead of US companies at developing 5G tech. However, Trump's demand for 6G technology is quite baffling as 6G doesn't even exist as a concept, not even in theory. 6G wireless technology, if it even exists, is years away from being implemented in real life. However, Trump's tweet me just be a subtle push for US companies to get a head start on 6G tech.
  2. If you're a football fanatic, you know it's that time of the year. Champions League? Of course. Premier League? Totally. Domestic cup competitions? Hell yeah! But what all of this brings in is frustrating, controversial and game-changing decisions from the referees. © Manchester Evening News Agreed, they're only human so they can make mistakes but if various footballing theories are to be believed, sometimes the bogus decisions are given just to influence the overall look of the season or worse, a referee hunting for the limelight. Whether it's Chelsea getting robbed of second straight Champions League final (2009) because of atrocious refereeing or Bayern Munich being denied clear penalties against Real Madrid, we've seen it all. Quite often UEFA has been branded 'UEFALona' and 'UEFAMadrid' just to showcase the organization's sudden 'soft corner' for the Spanish clubs. And it was hard to disagree with. Chelsea vs Barcelona semi-final was said to be doctored by UEFA itself, in order to avoid an 'all English finale' (Manchester United other finalists) for two years in a row, thinking it'll affect the popularity as well as TV ratings of the competition. With the introduction of VAR) (Video Assistant Referee) in Champions League, it was a different ball game (pun intended) last night. VAR is just like DRS in cricket but for football. © Reuters In one of the most anticipated ties of the round of 16, Atletico Madrid faced Juventus at Wanda Metropolitano. It was merely 27 minutes on the clock when Atletico was awarded a penalty for De Sciglio's alleged foul on Diego Costa. The decision was correctly overturned by VAR since the foul happened outside of the box. That was not the only contribution of Video Assistant Referee as it again came to Juventus' rescue, this time Alvaro Morata's thumping header gave Atletico the lead before VAR intervened and decided against it. © Manchester Evening News VAR's influence was felt 1800 kms North of Madrid in Gelsenkirchen (Germany) as well. Schalke were the clear underdogs coming into this match, thanks to their plummeting domestic form under manager Domenico Tedesco. After conceding an early goal due to defensive chaos, the German side came back in the contest when VAR awarded Schalke a penalty, after Nicolas Otamendi handled the ball, which was earlier denied by the on-field referee. However, a decision like this couldn't help Schalke deal with City's immense quality as the English club cruised to victory even with down to 10 men. After a successful World Cup, VAR has proven time and again that it is what 'the beautiful game' needs in order to keep it fair. The only concern is that it is a machine and chances of a machine failing are very high. On average it takes only about a minute or so for VAR to arrive at a decision but last night it took about three, which is a lot considering the quick nature of football and how you only need a second to change the game. Although UEFA clarified that the delay was caused because of the faulty pitch side monitor, but delays like these cannot be ignored. All in all, VAR has its pros and cons but one thing that it can guarantee is extinction of infamous moments like Hand Of God, Neuer's Ghost Save Vs England, Thiago Motta's Red Card Vs Barcelona and many more. Here are the best Twitter reactions on VAR from last night. This match is the best advertise for VAR. Great stuff. — hash (@hashim0307) February 20, 2019 I've no problem with the decisions VAR made but Jesus Christ it cannot take that long, like many have said, if it takes over 2 and half minutes to figure out it definitely isn't clear and obvious — Camobabo (@CamoBabo) February 21, 2019 #VAR is just like giving a kid a gun !!!! — khalid alkhattaf (@AlkhattafKhalid) February 21, 2019 What a phenomenal game #ATLJUV was. But I'm still and never will be a fan of #VAR — Michael Constantinou (@theGroupMikeC) February 21, 2019 The hand ball rule is stupid. Judging whether or not something is deliberate when the ball is travelling that fast is impossible. With VAR I'd expect them to have a better understanding but obviously not. — Calum (@CalArsenal) February 21, 2019
  3. If you're ever feeling down and out in life, just go over to Akshay Kumar's Instagram page and you'll get a whole lotta determination, inspiration and motivation, all folded in to one. The actor does such inspirational things, it gives us hope that the world can definitely be a better place. © Pinterest Just recently, along with Aditya Thakeray, he participated in a training session to teach young girls basic self-defence techniques, in Thane Mumbai. His social media was abuzz with a video of him training the girls, so they can protect themselves in the most basic way possible. © Instagram The video he shared on his Instagram page was captioned: Happy to see a turnout of 2000 plus girls from nearby schools at our self defense training camp in Thane today. The workshop was to teach them some basic self defense techniques. Hoping it was helpful and to see more of them at our training centre. Happy to see a turnout of 2000 plus girls from nearby schools at our self defense training camp in Thane today. The workshop was to teach them some basic self defense techniques. Hoping it was helpful and to see more of them at our training centre. @adityathackeray A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Feb 20, 2019 at 4:02am PST Dressed in black, Kumar displayed a lot of patience and skilful knowledge about the basics of martial arts. He believes it's important for young girls to know the fundamentals, just in case they face something uncomfortable, ever in life. © Pinterest Akshay has had formal training in Thai Boxing and Muay Thai when he spent over 5 years learning these forms of martial arts in Thailand and now he wishes to impart his knowledge of martial arts for training purposes. This isn't the first time we're seeing the man in his utmost noble best. He's known to bring issues of menstrual hygiene to the forefront with his film 'Padman' and has also joined hands with an organisation to aid a running event to raise awareness for menstrual hygiene. © Zee Studios On the work front, his film 'Kesari', based on the battle of Saragarhi in 1897 will release in March this year and we're really waiting with bated breath to watch him in one of the finest roles he's ever played.
  4. The smartwatch and wearables industry is growing at a fast pace and there was bound to be an affordable smartwatch that can do everything that an Apple Watch can do. However, not all smartwatches are as fluid as the Apple Watch or deliver an experience that keeps users loyal. However, if you are looking for an affordable smartwatch, the Amazfit Verge is the closest bet that offers GPS navigation, fitness tracking and notification management for Rs 12,000. The smartwatch category is flooded with numerous options, but does the Amazfit Verge perform better than the rest of them? Let's find out. Design Being a budget smartwatch, the Verge does not offer the same build quality as a premium smartwatch. It's got an all plastic body with one plastic button on the upper right corner. It's light and does not offer that feel good factor you would want from a watch. The red button is used for navigating apps and selecting options. However, the button is not accurate as we would have to often click the button multiple times to get the OS to respond. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The smartwatch comes with a proprietary charger which we feel was not the best design option to go with. When done charging, sometimes we would have to yank out the smartwatch hard, fearing we may just break the strap or the charger. We would also have to place the smartwatch in the current orientation as it does not have charging pins on both sides of the charger. The circular dial on the Amazfit Verge houses an AMOLED display which is bright enough to be clear and visible in bright sunlight. The display is good enough to read notifications and text which is a plus to have on a smartwatch. There are 10 watch faces you can choose from which can be changed from the watch itself or from the app. Having said that, the watch-faces are quite rudimentary and does not offer many customisations. Features The one thing I love about the Apple Watch is the ability to view notifications and take appropriate action. For example, I can reply to WhatsApp messages, text messages and send voice notes without ever opening my smartphone. On the Amazfit Verge, you do get notifications, but you cannot reply to text messages or even read emails. There's no support for third-party apps which makes it quite disappointing, The only apps you can use are the ones that come pre-installed i.e. heart rate reader, timer, stopwatch and that's about it. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Amazfit Verge has an integrated mic and speaker. This can be used for making and receiving calls straight on the smartwatch. In order for this feature to work, you need to have your smartphone near you. You can even use the stereo speaker to listen to music as it has 4GB of onboard memory (2GB more storing music). In our experience, the feature worked well especially when making calls. Callers did notice that I sounded like I was using an earpiece. However, we would have loved to see the Amazfit Verge would ring at the same time as the smartphone. Call notifications were sometimes delayed and in that time we could just pick up the call on the smartphone. It kind of defeats the purpose of having a call feature on the smartphone if we don't get notified on time. Performance Being a smartwatch, it is able to track your activity and exercises just like any other smartwatch however not all is rosy in this category either. We found the footstep tracking to be inaccurate when calculating steps taken manually and comparing it with the readings. In fact, we tried to test the accuracy by wearing the smartwatch for the first time on our drive to work. The Amazfit Verge tracked 200 steps while we were driving indicating that it isn't as reliable as budget fitness bands. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to GPS tracking, the smartwatch was accurate at most occasions; however, we found it to be off by 200 meters sometimes in select areas and sometimes off by a kilometre. This may not bother a casual runner. However, it can be quite disadvantageous for hikers and outdoor runners. The other problem with the GPS feature is its inability to start up quickly. We were ready to go for a walk and had to wait for the GPS to start working. The Amazfit Verge takes particularly long to catch the GPS signal which can be frustrating if you want to just get going with your workout. The heart rate monitor is accurate on the Amzfit Verge as the results were almost identical with the Apple Watch Series 4 and Omron Pulse Oximeter. The Amazfit Verge has the ability to track different types of workouts and can automatically detect your activity. This is a nifty feature that works on the Amazfit Verge as advertised. However, you cannot track multiple workouts at the same time as you will need to end each activity tracking mode before starting another. This basically does not allow a user to track different activities in a single workout which can be a bit frustrating when exercising. You don't want to keep looking at your smartwatch before you start a new exercise as we're already in the flow and don't want to stop. The Final Say The Amazfit Verge offers every feature you want to see on a specs sheet. However, it simply doesn't cut it. Just because it has all the features doesn't mean it's a great smartwatch. It needs to be executed properly for cohesive user experience. From delayed notifications to a less than an appealing design choice, the Amazit Verge is not something we expected. The operating system needs to be more refined and needs to be able to handle more than one app at a time. Activity tracking also needs improvement which is one of the salient features of a smartwatch. Priced at Rs 12,000, it's suitable for people who are looking for a smartwatch packed with features and can sacrifice the overall user experience.
  5. Vicky Kaushal is the kind of fashionista who doesn't ever try hard. But the thing is, he doesn't need to. His cheerful demeanour coupled with the effortless charm of a chivalrous guy next door works wonders for him, every single time. However, he just won a bunch of awards, and wore a super classy blue suit for the occasion. Naturally, all eyes were on him, and how 'dreamy' he looks in that became the talk of the town. Take a look. © Instagram/vickykaushal09 Vicky wore a smart blue suit from Tisa Studio with a statement embossed aesthetic that stood out, despite being extremely subdued and subtle. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The stretch of strong royal blue is making him look super tall (not that he needs it, at all, being as tall as he actually is). When it comes to footwear, the dark plum and black Oxfords are a perfect accompaniment to the statement suit. © Viral Bhayani The fact that he chose to wear the standard white shirt with it, casually unbuttoning the topmost part, shows that the man has nailed it when it comes to be effortlessly stylish. © Viral Bhayani Vicky won the Dadasaheb Phakle Award for the Best Performance in a Leading Role for 'Uri', the Lokmat Maharashtrian of the Year Award, and the Femina Fresh Face of the Year Award. Congratulations, champ!
  6. Innovation doesn't come easy and Samsung managed to pull off a working foldable smartphone and calls its the “Galaxy Fold.” It's a phone that can fold and can be bought for a lot of money. There's no doubt that the Galaxy Fold is an engineering marvel; however, it has one very obvious caveat. The Galaxy Fold may look different from anything you've ever seen, but it's too damn thick when folded. © Samsung The device itself has a screen size of 4.6-inches when folded and turns into a 7.3-inch display when unfolded and becomes a tablet. It's probably the most refined foldable smartphone we've seen yet. The one feature that sets the Galaxy Fold apart from others is its app continuity feature. Currently, it works with YouTube, WhatsApp, Google Maps, YouTube, Netflix and Facebook. © Samsung On one hand, the Galaxy Fold is a device that lets you fit something in your pocket that is as big as a tablet. On the other hand, the Galaxy Fold is way too thick for it to sit comfortably in your pocket. Reports suggest that the Galaxy Fold is 17mm thick when folded and 6.9mm thick when unfolded. To put things into perspective, the Galaxy Fold is as thick as the Nintendo Switch and it is certainly not practical to fit something that thick in your pocket. On the brighter side, the Galaxy Fold does come with impressive specifications that makes it one of the most powerful and expensive smartphones yet. The Galaxy Fold comes with 12 GB of RAM and batteries on each side of the foldable phone. It has six cameras, i.e. three on the back, one on the front and two inside. © Samsung The rear cameras are a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera. On the inside, the two cameras are a 10-megapixel selfie camera and an 8-megapixel depth camera. As for the front-facing camera, the Galaxy Fold has a single 10-megapixel selfie camera. Even though the Galaxy Fold is probably the most exciting thing made by Samsung yet, it's sheer thickness can be problematic for users who want a practical device. The Galaxy Fold also costs $ 1980 (Approx Rs 1,40,670) which is a fair price for something that's innovative. Whether folding phones will be a thing of the future remains to be seen. Maybe, future iterations will be thinner and more affordable.
  7. Ali Fazal has been a known face for quite a while now. But after the roaring success of Amazon Prime's web series 'Mirzapur' for his role as Guddu Pandit along Vikrant Massey, Ali Fazal is here to stay. Having appeared in Bollywood movies like '3 Idiots' and movie franchise 'Fukrey' to his role in the popular International movie franchise 'Fast and Furious 7', Ali has sure come a long way. As excelling in the acting department appears to be his top priority, his style game isn't too far on the list. Ali Fazal has been serving looks that are high-rated on the fashion radar lately. Here are 10 times Ali Fazal proved he's not a 'Fukra' when it comes to fashion: 1. That psychedelic jacket is so dope!

  8. When you have so much money that you don't even know what to do with it, you start spending it on honestly the most bizarre, frivolous things. Case in point - Drake's new diamond encrusted iPhone case. Oh, and it apparently cost him $400,000 which is exactly â¹2,85,92,000. Basically, while we're all struggling to even afford an iPhone, he spent the money it would take to buy, say 400 iPhones, on a single phone case. I mean, it's his money and he can do whatever he wants with it, so Champagne Papi just decided to call everyone a broke bitch at the same time. Well, here's the cover, and please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this is a little tacky. View this post on Instagram Because we can't do basic! Diamond iPhone case cover for our friend @champagnepapi ðð¼ðð¼ðð¼ A post shared by JASON OF BEVERLY HILLS (@jasonofbeverlyhills) on Feb 14, 2019 at 5:21am PST Not so basic, for sure. But, I still have some questions - What will happen when a new iPhone comes and it's time for Drake to upgrade? Will he stick to his current iPhone or drop another half a million dollars on a case? Is he being this extra just because he has a song called 'hotline bling' and this is literally hotline bling come to life? Does this case offer any extra protection when his phone inevitably falls? Will the diamonds prevent a broken screen? But, most importantly, I'm just scared of him losing his phone or someone stealing it. I mean, it would hurt us if we lost our iPhone, but he would not just lost his iPhone but 3 crore worth of diamonds as well. It hurts just thinking about it. Drake, be careful man, your phone is probably a target now.
  9. In a perfect scenario, you would always smell good down there. However, in everyday life, it isn't possible to smell good always. This is because the genital region has sebaceous and apocrine glands, which make oil and sweat, also the area can get overheated under layers of clothes and underwear, all of this can lead to bacterial growth that causes some strong smells. At the end of a day, alone or with someone, you wouldn't want to strip down to funky smelling underwear right? Precisely why you need to do something about it. There are ways to help keep it under control though. 1. Shower Daily © Getty Images We know that we're stating the obvious but sometimes, a pungent smell can be caused because of the most basic of reasons. In case you don't shower reason everyday, it's about time you start doing so. Not showering daily makes it easier for bacterial infestations. 2. Trim Regularly © Getty Images We're not against body hair. In fact, body hair in no way undermines your sexual health. However, at the same time if you don't trim regularly the grown hair surely can factor into a bad smell. 3. Water Low water levels can also affect your glands and result in funky smelling junk. Just keep your water intake at par which anyway is healthy for you. 4. Invest In Products © Getty Images If you're still paranoid about smelling good or none of the above steps seem to be working for you, it's time you invest in specialized products. For an intimate wash you could choose from: The Men's Lab Intimate Wash For Men © Amazon Below the Belt Grooming for Men Fresh and Dry Balls Gel Cool © Amazon Guysome, Chocolate Fragrance Intimate Hygiene Wash for Men with Vitamin E and Sea Buckthorn Extract © Amazon Keeo Intimate Wash for Men with Tea Tree Oil, Lavender Oil & Aloe Vera Extract © Amazon Namyaa Intimate Hygiene Wash For Men/Women With Tea Tree Extracts © Amazon 5. Visit A Doctor While intimate washes is a good place to start, if your junk still doesn't cease to smell funky, it's time you visited a doctor. The prescription drugs and medicine shall be far more effective if nothing works out or it could be an infection waiting to be discovered. Take these things seriously.
  10. Everyone has regrets, some bigger than the others and I think Will Smith has been carrying around the biggest one ever and he's finally talking about it 20 years later. Can you imagine anyone turning down a movie like 'The Matrix'? Well, turns out that's exactly what Will did. In a 'storytime' video on his YouTube account, Will Smith talked all about 'why he turned down The Matrix' and well, the main reason is that he just didn't understand it. Yep, that's it. He was offered the lead role of Neo in the 1999 Si-Fi movie but it eventually went to Keanu Reeves. Actually, come to think of it, it's now hard to imagine someone other than Keanu playing that role. Will started off the video by saying, “This is one of them stories I'm not proud of, but it's the truth.” He explained how the offer came at a 'crazy time' in his career. He said, I had done 'Independence Day' the year before, so I was like, 'Eh, I'm not doing another alien movie, I don't want to be the alien movie guy''." Then, he did meet with 'geniuses' The Wachowskis who approached him and pitched the movie to him, but he just didn't understand it. Will explaining the pitch to us is also very funny and the animation in his video adds a great touch. He said, “I didn't get it when I read it. It's a hard movie to pitch. You know: 'Everybody lives inside a computer.' It was only when I saw it that I really got it. They came in and made a pitch for 'The Matrix'. As it turns out, they're geniuses. But there's a fine line in a pitch meeting between genius and what I experienced in the meeting.” Will, however, did acknowledge that he saved us all by not messing up 'The Matrix' because Keanu Reeves as Neo is perfect and Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus is perfect. He said, “If I had done it because I'm black, then Morpheus wouldn't have been black because they were looking at Val Kilmer. So, I probably would have messed 'The Matrix' up.” Here's the video:
  11. In 2017, a Porsche sold for, hang on to your hats, $2.08 million. Eye-watering by even today's stratospheric supercar prices. But you know why this was such a big deal? The car in question, a Porsche 959 Sport, was 30 years old, and when new, cost in the region of $200,000! © Porsche Probably The First Supercar There's a thin line between supercars and sports cars, but the Porsche 959 stepped over that rather firmly. Production started in 1987, ending a year later, and just 292 of these were built (including just 29 Sport versions). 450hp, a top speed of 200mph, a 0-60mph time of under 4 seconds (3.6s for the Sport), the 959 was perhaps the first real supercar (as opposed to 'sports cars' and 'GT cars'). Consider this: One of today's most desirable cars - the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 - does the 0-60mph sprint in 3.5 seconds, which doesn't seem like a vast improvement over a car built when computers had less power than the smartwatch you got on your birthday. In fact, the two other legendary cars from the 1980s - the Ferrari Testarossa and the Lamborghini Countach, were nowhere near the 959 (both doing 0-60 in around 5 seconds). The 959 was in a league of its own - and it was gorgeous, the wide fenders, the racing-inspired bodywork, the rear wing, everything about it screamed 'speed'. Porsche Might Have Lost Money On It Porsche never intended the 959 to be a mainstream car - not like the legendary 911. In fact, some people say Porsche might have made a loss on every single 959 sold - one estimate says Porsche was selling it for less than half of what it cost to make! What Porsche was going for, then, was to show the very bleeding edge of tech - just what was possible if you threw out all the stops and said 'to hell with the costs'. © Zoom So the 959 came with four-wheel-drive, an adjustable suspension. Speed was so important that Porsche fitted its diva with hollow-spoke alloy wheels (to keep the weight down). Attention to detail like only the Germans can! Even Crashed 959s Sell For Half A Million Dollars “Okay”, you'd think, “if I had a few million lying around, I'd pay $2 million for a legendary Porsche supercar” - one that changed the car industry forever with its tech-heavy nature. But what about the chap who paid $467,500 for a 959 that had been in an accident? Yup, the car still ran, and we assume he got it repaired, but that's still a lot for a car that's been smashed up! The Dakar Edition Is Worth Even More The 959 Sport might be rare, but there's another 959 that's as rare as rain in the Sahara Desert - that would be the racing 959 that was built in 1985 - even before full-time production started - for the Paris-Dakar Rally. It didn't manage to complete the rally, but it had loads more going for it - this 959 was driven by three-time Dakar rally winner Rene Metge, and one of its later owners included Belgian racing legend Jacky Ickx © Zoom But It's Still Nowhere Near The World Record Price For A Car Sorry, Porsche, your 959 might be desirable but your arch-rivals have gone one better - In 2018, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for $48.4 million. The same weekend, another car, 1935 Duesenberg set the record for the most expensive American car sold at an auction - $22 million. But there's a difference - the 959 is remarkably modern (It even came with a tyre pressure monitoring system) and can still be driven around every day. So does that mean your rickety hatchback will be worth that much someday? Well, we'd doubt it but you can always dream!
  12. Apple is gearing up to launch its rumoured streaming service as soon as early April or May and is one of the many subscription services Tim Cook has already confirmed. The streaming service will feature shows Fromm HBO and other channels, however, will not feature existing services like Netflix. © YouTube The streaming service will essentially bundle different streaming platforms into one subscription that Apple customers can buy. Apple device owners will be able to buy and watch in a dedicated TV app on iOS. Apple already boasts more than 50 million subscribers for its music service and it is possible that we could see a similar number for the video service thanks to the sheer number of Apple devices out there. Apple is believed to be investing at least US$1 billion in content and has acquired the rights to a new series starring and co-produced by American actresses Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. © Apple Having said that, Apple's new video service will compete directly with Netflix for streaming eyeballs. When Netflix first started streaming its content, it already has a plethora of content lined up to keep everyone busy. Apple may struggle to achieve the same in the beginning as it would pack only a handful of shows at first. It would be interesting to see how Apple will populate its streaming service for users. Apple's new subscriptions service will be somewhat similar to Amazon Prime. The Cupertino giant is expected to offer a subscription plan that will include music, video and news. Whether it would be enough to sway customers towards the service; only time will tell.
  13. Apple's AirPods have been due for a refresh for quite some time and we've been hearing about a launch every now and then. Last year, we expected Apple to announce the second-generation earbuds alongside the iPhones, but it didn't materialise. AirPods have been extremely successful since its launch and are still among the most preferred. With 2019 setting in, we're hearing even more about the upcoming AirPods 2. Thanks to MySmartPrice (https://www.mysmartprice.com/gear/apple-airpods2/), we know the AirPods 2 will look similar to the previous generation, but pack a set of new features. Improvements will include improved bass and a grippier, non-slip coating, and new sensors. © Apple Previous reports have pointed out that Apple is very serious about health and shall include a host of new sensors like heart rate scanner and enhanced fitness trackers. The wireless earbuds shall also feature water resistance, better battery life, and improved audio quality. The AirPods 2 shall come in two colours -- black and white. The price is expected to be around US$ 200 (Rs 14,100), instead of the current US$ 159 (Rs 11,250). © Reuters Secondly, the same report also sheds light on Apple's AirPower mat. The wireless charging mat was first announced in 2017, alongside the iPhone X. But we haven't heard anything official about it since then and the company still seems to be finding a way to mass produce it. However, since the product was first teased, AirPower seems to have undergone some adaptations. The production-ready mat is said to be "slightly thicker than originally expected" due to a multi-wireless charging coil configuration. Earlier reports have indicated that the product wasn't ready since it produced an exceptional amount of heat, thanks to multiple coils. The AirPower itself may come with some 'exclusive features' but those will come to play only with iOS 13. © Apple The AirPods 2 is expected to launch in the first half of this year, while the AirPower mat is expected to come by the end of 2019. We expect the company to announce the two together during a press conference in the coming months.
  14. Ranveer Singh is known to be one of India's most candid and outspoken actors, who wears his heart on his sleeve and has a mouth to show for it too. Trust Ranveer to turn the most mundane activity into a fun-tastic one and spoil your senses with audio and visual proof of the same. So, recently, Ranveer proved this point once again when he caught up with trade analyst Komal Nahta on Zee Cafe's 'Starry Nights 2.Oh' where he made a revelation about his days as a struggling artist. He said that back in the day when he was a struggling actor, he dressed up as Arun from 'Mr. India' and showed up at casting director Shaano Sharma's house because he had heard the rumour that Shekhar Kapoor was all set to direct 'Mr. India 2'. View this post on Instagram Keep it ð¯ A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Feb 8, 2019 at 9:45am PST “During my struggling days, it was rumoured that Shekhar Kapur was making Mr India 2 and I landed up at Shanoo Sharma's house dressed up as Anil Kapoor's character Arun,” Ranveer told Komal on the show. If it wasn't evident enough for his fans and followers, Ranveer just made it crystal clear that he can go to any lengths to get into the skin of the character and give his very best to every role that presents itself (or not). View this post on Instagram Uth jaa apni Raakh se, tu Udd jaa ab Talaash mein ð¦#mondaymotivation #gullyboy A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Feb 10, 2019 at 9:57pm PST Be it is isolating himself from the world for 21 days to play Alauddin Khilji in 'Padmaavat' or doing his own groundwork and training with underground rappers for his upcoming release 'Gully Boy', Ranveer has always gone out of his way to make sure he gives 200 per cent to all his assignments. Talking about the kind of films he loves, where the hero is the master of the show and the film is larger than life, Ranveer said, “big muscles, big guns. Matlab mujhe bas yahi karna hai.” Ranveer couldn't have given a more earnest and honest reply than this.
  15. A teenager was able to discover an exploit that can basically reveal passwords on macOS; however, he does not plan on sharing any details with Apple. The reason why the researcher will not share how the bug was discovered is because it has to do with Apple's bug bounty policies. Currently, Apple only offers bounties for bugs found on iOS and not on macOS. Apple paid a bounty to the teenager who discovered the FaceTime bug that would let users listen when adding a new member on an ongoing FaceTime call. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla This bug on the macOS, however, grabs the password from login and system keychains without requiring any administrator privileges. Linus Henze posted a demo video for the KeySteal exploit that basically shows how it takes advantage of the bug. It's worthy to note that this bug only works on the latest version of macOS Mojave. However, it does not affect iCloud's keychain. Henze told Forbes about Apple's bug bounty policies that "It's like they don't really care about macOS," he told Forbes. "Finding vulnerabilities like this one takes time, and I just think that paying researchers is the right thing to do because we're helping Apple make their product more secure.” © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla It isn't the first time a bug was discovered by a user as recently a FaceTime bug was causing people to panic.

  16. Last year, we witnessed the rise of Xiaomi in India, and the rate at which they've disrupted the market is unprecedented. The brand dethroned Samsung as the number one smartphone maker in the country based on units shipped. In fact, Xiaomi has clearly been the leader these past few quarters when it came to market share in India. Samsung has been far less aggressive in terms of competition, but now the tides are slowly changing. The South Korean giant is going all in to protect its market share and changing its product line-up massively. They've announced the launch of M-series smartphones today, a completely new line-up to cater the budget segment. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The M10 and M20 are the first phones in the new series and the first thing you'll notice about them is the design. These are also the first phones from the company to sport a notch. Samsung was among the very few major brands to not equip their phones with a notch just for the sake of it. The brand is calling the display notch as "Infinity-V Display", in line with their Infinity Display branding. The M20 is the elder sibling and comes with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display. Powering the phone is a Exynos 7904 octa-core processor, clocked at 1.8Ghz. It ships with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage in the base variant, while the second option has 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. A microSD card slot has also been included for expansion. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla On the rear, it has a 13-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.9 aperture and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. The secondary sensor is a wide angle lens, similar to what we've seen onboard the Galaxy A7. The front has an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. Lastly, the phone comes with a huge 5000mAh battery that supports fast charging. The M10 has a 6.2-inch HD+ display and is backed by a Exynos 7870 octa-core chipset, clocked at 1.6Ghz. The base variant gets 2GB RAM along with 16GB internal storage. The second option comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. On the back is a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. Even here, the secondary sensor consists of a wide angle lens. The front has a 5-megapixel lens for selfies. Lastly, it has a 3400mAh battery. Galaxy M20 will be priced at INR 12,990 for the 4GB+64GB variant, while the 3GB+32GB variant will cost INR 10,990. Galaxy M10 is priced at INR 8,990 for the 3GB+32GB variant and INR 7,990 for the 2GB+16GB.
  17. If we go down the whole inclusive narrative (which is the correct thing to do tbh), all smiles are beautiful. However, anyone who denies that they have not desired pearl-white teeth at some point or the other in their life, they're simply lying. White teeth are attractive not only because of their aesthetic appeal, they are also an indicator of good dental hygiene, which is in fact a desirable thing. Keeping that in mind, we have listed out 5 super effective home remedies that will help one get visibly whiter teeth in less than a month's time. 1. Oil Pulling © Shine365 Oil pulling is done by taking a teaspoonful of oil in your mouth, swishing it around for 15-20 minutes, and then spitting it out. It's an ancient technique that detoxifies your body, starting with the mouth. 2. Drinking less tea/coffee and quitting smoking © Yournewswire Quitting smoking will considerably decrease nicotine staining. Excessive consumption of coffee, tea, and strong dark sodas also stain your teeth, the effects of which can be long term. Everyone should make a conscious attempt to avoid these food items. 3. Brushing with baking soda © Orawellness Baking soda has natural whitening properties, and is a natural abrasive. Plus, it helps in creating an alkaline environment in your mouth, thereby restricting bacterial growth. All of these result in whiter teeth. 4. Eating fruits like apple, papaya, and pineapple © Health and Mind Care Enzymes found in these fruits will naturally help whiten your teeth, on regular consumption. 5. Brushing and flossing © Markham Dental Centre This one seems basic, but it's the most important step. Teeth staining happen mainly because of food stuck in your mouth for a long time. Brush properly (with vertical movement for your front teeth in a way that cleans the crevices) twice and day, and never go to bed without brushing post dinner. Flossing once a day will make sure food is not stuck in between your teeth, and will also take care of excess plaque.
  18. The people working closely with all the celebrities would know almost anything and everything about them, but we would never get any of that gossip because, loyalty, of course. But, turns out blood really is thicker than water because what we hear is Malaika Arora's driver Mukesh has been telling his brother all about her and Arjun Kapoor. Now, that wouldn't be a problem, but Mukesh's brother Babloo is Arbaaz Khan's driver. Oops. Twitter I'm so glad two brothers gossiping has become news now because I honestly can't stop laughing at this. This was originally reported by Spotboye and while we don't know if it's actually true or not, it's still the funniest thing I've read today. Twitter So basically, brothers Mukesh and Babloo are Malaika and Arbaaz's drivers, respectively and continued working for them even after the couple split. But, turns out unlike her ex brother-in-law, Malaika couldn't count on her driver who then gave information about her relationship with Arjun to his brother, which in turn probably reached Arbaaz Khan. Moreover, the report also apparently said that Malaika blasted her driver left, right and centre when she found out about what's going on. Understandable, tbh. Twitter I honestly doubt this is real but the fact that Malaika and Arbaaz's drivers are gossiping about each other and their employers getting to know about it is the best thing ever.
  19. A decade ago, on the morning of January 22, 2008, Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight' became the only superhero film to be nominated in a record-breaking 8 categories, a stature that has not been achieved by any superhero genre film till date. via GIPHY The heartbreaking reality associated with this film that still pinches the movie buffs happens to be its exclusion from being nominated in the Best Picture category. Years later, just a day after the announcement of nominations of the 91st Academy Awards, the world is contemplating a rather historic moment that might change the whole significance of the Oscars forever. Ryan Coogler's tour-de-force 'Black Panther', which is a superhero saga, has been nominated for the Oscars in multiple categories including the esteemed Best Picture category. via GIPHY “Wakanda forever”, tweeted 'Black Panther's' lead actress Lupita Nyong'o, as she shared her extreme delight on the micro-blogging platform, regarding the film's nominations. Since then, social media has been buzzing with tweets, comments, and memes. Seven #OscarNoms for #BlackPanther, including best picture!! This is our reaction the first time we saw footage from the film and we're feeling this way all over again today! Thank you @TheAcademy! #WakandaForever #Oscars pic.twitter.com/lXWv3nsN90 — Lupita Nyong'o (@Lupita_Nyongo) January 22, 2019 Where on one hand, the film has been declared a shape-shifting cultural phenomenon prominently at various award ceremonies this year, others are fuming over the Academy's decision of putting the film in the Best Picture category. Who can forget the ultimate dismissal of 'The Dark Knight'? On the 10th death anniversary of Heath Ledger (Joker), fans remember! via GIPHY If we take a look back at Christopher Nolan's 'Batman' sequel, the film got nominated in eight categories and ended up winning two including the posthumous win by Heath Ledger who portrayed Joker in the film. The only possible reason behind the Best Picture nomination snub for 'The Dark Knight' is believed to be the Academy's limit on the number of candidates in this category. 'Black Panther's' nomination is being termed historic, however, one can't help but wonder if it's because of the controversial history of 'The Dark Knight' at the Oscars that the Marvel film got to this juncture? Does 'Black Panther' owe its nomination to the biggest snub of all time – the dismissal of Christopher Nolan's beloved project? via GIPHY 2019 brings more room for nominees in the Best Picture category and the number has been increased from 5 to between 5 and 10 films. That makes us think more and deeply about the loss 'The Dark Knight' faced at the hands of the Academy. Other films that have got nominated this year are 'A Star Is Born', 'Vice', 'Bohemian Rhapsody', 'The Favourite', 'BlacKkKlansman', 'Green Book' and 'Roma'. But what are the chances of 'Black Panther's' win? The Academy has been famously known for dropping the last minute bombs! Remember the highly criticized 'La La Land' fiasco? As critics said, 'Moonlight's'well-deserved win was taken from their hands and the wrong film was announced on purpose, we don't know what the truth is, but two years later, we know that Hollywood is trying to prove a point here. via GIPHY In simple words, 'Black Panther's' nomination may just be a kind gesture by the Academy to avoid the 'Oscars So White' tirade! When the film surpassed James Cameron's 'Titanic' and became the third highest grossing movie ever in the United States, there came the indication that the Academy might consider it. However, this nomination is indeed a sheer surprise for us. via GIPHY Though stigma has taken a back seat and the film deserves an equal opportunity to win, but somehow, it is meant to be snubbed! Otherwise, it would be a naive but well-planned catastrophe directed towards Mr Nolan.
  20. The last 24 hours have not exactly been the brightest for the Pakistani cricket captain Sarfraz Ahmed, who was caught throwing racially motivated jibes at the South African all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo during the second ODI of five-match series at the Proteas' home turf. As things grew out of proportion, former Pakistani pacer and all-time-great Shoaib Akhtar too decided to humble the outspoken wicket keeper by uploading a minute and a half long video from all his social media handles which he later removed due to reasons unknown. The former cricketer urged Ahmed to make a public apology for the “absolutely disgusting comments” that he had made in Durban. Having said that, after an entire day of public humiliation, Ahmed finally tweeted a long apology in which he shows regret over hurting the sentiments of those who got offended by his “expression of frustration.” 1/2 - I wish to extend my sincere apologies to any person who may have taken offence from my expression of frustration which was unfortunately caught by the stump mic during yesterday's game against SA. My words were not directed towards anyone in particular and... — Sarfaraz Ahmed (@SarfarazA_54) January 23, 2019 2/3 - I certainly had no intention of upsetting anyone. I did not even mean for my words to be heard, understood or communicated to the opposing team or the cricket fans. I have in the past and will continue in future to appreciate the camaraderie of my fellow cricketers from... — Sarfaraz Ahmed (@SarfarazA_54) January 23, 2019 3/3 - ...across the globe and will always respect and honour them on and off the field. — Sarfaraz Ahmed (@SarfarazA_54) January 23, 2019 In his apology, Ahmed tries to convey that his remarks were not directed towards a certain individual and he, as a cricketer has shown respect towards his fellow men of the game from all around the world and will continue to do so in the future. However, the judiciary that social media has come to become, was not convinced with this apology of Ahmed's and they let him know that in the best way possible: I think you should be ashamed of yourself using racial language against a fellow cricketer We face racism in the uk everyday I know how it feels #shame — Talib Zaman (@TalibZaman) January 23, 2019 pic.twitter.com/aqLZzalNMq — Om Mehta (@om_mehta) January 23, 2019 pic.twitter.com/U29HzzSDgw — Phumlani Khulu (@Pumbaah1512) January 23, 2019 Saifi bhai ini English ð u made me cry ð­ð­ — Tehرeeemeee (Maheen's Bdy â¤) (@Cheerrryy_) January 23, 2019 Saifi bhai zuban zada chlate ho or balla kam chlate ho zada focus game pe rakho — Muhammad Asif Iqbal (@Muhammad_Aasif4) January 23, 2019 jhoot bolta hai bsdk? ðð — Aditya Acharya (@aadiacharya) January 23, 2019 The thing is, when you are caught saying something like “Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya padhwa ke aaye hai aaj?" (Hey black guy, where's your mother sitting today? What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?),” it doesn't really make a good case for you to say that your remarks weren't directed towards an individual and that you respect the people of colour. If you believe that your words weren't meant to be heard or understood by anyone from the opposing team, it doesn't make you less guilty. It is like Cameron Bancroft not wanting the cameras to catch his infamous ball-tampering incident in South Africa last year. According to the ICC Anti-Racism policy for International Cricket, Ahmed's apparent words of sledging unacceptable and he must be punished for it. If Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are facing so much flak for their remarks on a talk-show, the Pakistani skipper must meet with a penalty a lot more severe.
  21. One of the greatest sportspersons of all time, Usain Bolt will always be remembered for his astronomical achievements in the world of athletics. The Jamaican sprint king won multiple Olympic gold medals in London, Beijing and Rio to etch his name in the history books and create a legacy that is unlikely to be overhauled anytime soon. Thus, when Bolt announced his retirement as a sprinter, his fans, in every corner of the world, were undoubtedly overwhelmed by emotions as one of the greatest ever quietly walked into the shadows. But, then came a surprise. More of a joke, at first, which eventually turned out be more of a gimmick. But, Bolt thought otherwise. In fact, he began training with German club Borussia Dortmund before moving to Norwegian side Stromsgodset. But, his best opportunity came with the Central Coast Mariners of Australia's A-League. Appearing in friendlies with the club, Bolt scored a brace in a match in October last year which also earned him an opportunity to sign a contract with the team. After Usain Bolt announced his 'sports life is over', a look back at his first ever goal in football pic.twitter.com/kgKEXXFsf8 — Indy Football (@IndyFootball) January 23, 2019 However, the two parties couldn't come to an agreement on compensation as the club failed to find commercial backing to finance Bolt's desired wages. As a result, the Mariners and the 32-year-old star agreed to mutually terminate the trial in early November last year. An offer came from Maltese side Valletta last October, but they couldn't convince the sprint king to join them. Ultimately, unable to find suitors, Bolt has now decided to end his dream of becoming a professional footballer, calling time on his, supposedly, football career. "It was a good experience. I really enjoyed just being in a team and it was different from track and field and it was fun while it lasted,” Bolt said. But, with all due respect to the star athlete, did Bolt's football career ever really begin? Well, that was the question everyone was asking on the social media following his latest announcement. Career????

  22. A chat show which is supposed to entertain the audience ended up leaving a bitter taste for all the fans of 'Koffee With Karan'. When Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul made their much hyped, much awaited appearance on KJo's show, fans were eager to see some bromance and hear some dressing room secrets of the men in blue. However, the comments and remarks made by cricketer Hardik Pandya were regarded as sexist, misogynistic and plain tasteless in nature. Hardik Pandya : When i lost my virginity, i told them, "Mai Aj kar kay aya ho" pic.twitter.com/6HfX0zRWHy — Thakur (@ThakurHassam) January 6, 2019 This is just an iota of the confidence that was shown by Hardik on the show which upset the viewers to a limit that only did BCCI had to take action against them and impose a ban, but the episode had to be pulled down as well. Amidst this wave of controversy, the host himself was mum for quite a while until recently when he opened up on the episode and issued his own apology for the same. Karan Johar breaks his silence for the 1st time post Hardik Pandya & KL Rahul controversy on his #KoffeeWithKaran show. Full interview #ComingUp only on ET NOW.

The controversy cost the boys a ban from the India-Australia series which they were initially supposed to play. Even though Hardik issued an apology on social media, people were actually done with his thoughts.
  23. It has been a really undesirable start to the year for Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul, who have been extensively criticised for their sexist comments in a controversial episode of Karan Johar's talk show, 'Koffee With Karan'. They have been suspended by the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) after the episode was aired on Hotstar. They have been trolled by the Mumbai Police, criticized by their teammates and shamed by former national players. But their misfortune doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon as the BCCI wants to make an example out of the two rather outspoken cricketers, as the Committee of Administration (CoA) is thinking about conducting a 'behavioural counselling session' for the Indian players. "The Indian senior team as well as the Emerging, A teams and U-19s will have behavioural counselling session at the National Cricket Academy (NCA). The course will deal with every aspect of a professional sportsperson's life. There will also be sessions on gender sensitivity," a senior BCCI official told the Press Trust of India. But is this idea of conducting A counselling session nothing more than just a way to make a statement out of Pandya and Rahul, or could it turn out to be a lot more important than we think it to be? When you think about it, a professional sportsperson's life is exceedingly dynamic. The travelling, time away from family, bad form, injuries and a lot of other aspects that an athlete goes through during his professional career, can take a toll on their psyche. Especially for the Indian amateurs, who, with the success of the Indian Premier League, basically owned crores of rupees overnight after the auction, may find these sessions useful in terms of managing their lives amongst all the fame and fortune. Brrrrrrruuuaaaaaa! Welcome to the squad, Prabhsimran!#KXIP #LivePunjabiPlayPunjabi #SaddaSquad #IPLAuction pic.twitter.com/YT50kIqZEU — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) December 18, 2018 "Players like 17-year-old Prabh Simran Singh (Rs 4.8 crore for KXIP) or Prayas Ray Burman (Rs 1.6 crore for RCB) have become overnight millionaires even before playing a single Ranji match. There should be life coaches, who would counsel them," expressed a former Indian cricketer. As far as Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are concerned, they will attend the session as a part of the main roster and as centrally contracted cricketers.
  24. Fortnite has been dominating the gaming world and is probably the most successful free-to-play game in gaming history. The game managed to make $2.8 billion in revenue in 2018 and it doesn't seem to die out in popularity soon. The Battle Royale genre was made popular by PUBG and the game has held its own when it comes to earnings. © Blue Hole 2018 was a huge year for PUBG and according to Superdata figures, the game made over $1 billion in revenue last year. That made PUBG the highest grossing paid game in 2018 and the earnings don't even include money made from PUBG mobile. If we take earnings from PUBG mobile into consideration, it is probably the second highest grossing game right behind Fortnite. Here's the full list of both free-to-play and paid games ranked according to their earnings: Top Free-to-play Games Fortnite, Epic Games - $2.4 billion Dungeon Fighter Online, Nexon - $1.5 billion League of Legends, Riot Games, Tencent - $1.4 billion Pokemon GO, Niantic - $1.3 billion Crossfire, Neowiz Games - $1.3 billion Honour of Kings, Tencent - $1.3 billion Fate/Grand Order, Aniplex - $1.2 billion Candy Crush Saga, King, Activision Blizzard - $1.1 billion Monster Strike, Mixi - $1.0 billion Clash Royale, Supercell, Tencent - $0.9 billion Top Paid Games PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Bluehole - $1.028 billion FIFA 18, Electronic Arts - $790 million Grand Theft Auto V, Take-Two Interactive - $628 million Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, Activision Blizzard - $612 million Red Dead Redemption 2, Take-Two Interactive - $516 million Call of Duty: WWII, Activision Blizzard - $506 million FIFA 19, Electronic Arts - $482 million Monster Hunter: World, Capcom - $467 million Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft - $440 million Overwatch, Activision Blizzard - $429 million PUBG has been continually losing players after it peaked with 3 million concurrent players worldwide however it still ended up being the top selling and most-played game on steam. Considering how Fortnite has been destroying everything in its path, it's impressive to see the game earn this kind of figures. © MensXP The mobile version of the game has become more popular thanks to its popularity in India and other regions. The mobile version earned $32.5 million in November 2018 alone and it seems like the popularity of the game will only seem to rise. It's not only the mobile version, the game saw a sudden rise in concurrent players on Steam I.e. 1 million players in December 2018. This may have been due to Blue Hole's effort to purge hackers that initially led to the game's stagnant growth. It would be interesting to see how PUBG will fare against Fortnite in 2019 and whether it would be able to rake in similar revenue numbers. Still, it was reassuring to see PUBG hold it's own against a juggernaut like Fortnite. Source: Forbes
  25. The first trailer of 'Spiderman: Far From Home' dropped a couple of days ago, and it was the perfect distraction from all the incessant worrying that we have been doing about the fate of literally everyone in 'Avengers: Endgame'. However, Tony Stark's absence from the trailer did not help, with everyone already crying about his death, which people think is quite evident after this trailer, when it's actually not. But, we all have been on the internet long enough to know that the only way people online deal with emotions or excitement is memes, every time, without fail. So, obviously, a huge new trailer is the perfect meme opportunity. From ignoring all the apparent clues about Tony's death to finding even better reactions to that hilarious Happy-Aunt May interaction, here's how Twitter reacted to the trailer. Before that, on an unrelated note, here's the international trailer with some extra scenes in case you haven't seen it yet. Now, back to the memes! Same energy.
