  1. The Huawei P30 Pro and P30 have finally made its way to India where “P” denotes the meaning for photography. It's definitely one of the salient features of the smartphones and we've been testing the phone for almost a week to find out for ourselves. The P30 Pro has a versatile camera system and has features such as 5x optical zoom, an RYB sensor and also a ToF (Time of Flight) sensor. The ToF sensor is capable of delving more accurate bokeh picture. The smartphone also comes with a 32-MP selfie camera. Specifications Roundup © Huawei The P30 Pro has a 6.47-inch OLED Display and a 6.1-inch OLED display. It has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and has a teardrop design which houses the selfie camera. The smartphone comes with an all-glass finish with a gradient design when it comes to colours. The P30 Pro is powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 SoC and runs on Android Pie 9.1 out of the box. The P30 Pro as a 4,200 mAh battery and it also supports reverse wireless charging, just like the Mate 20 Pro and some other devices like the Galaxy S10. With P30 Pro, you also get a 40W USB-C fast charger for rapid charging. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The P30 Pro is also water resistant and has a rating of IP 68 while the P30 has a rating of IP 53. In terms of cameras, the main sensor is a 40 MP 27mm sensor with an f/1.6 aperture and optical image stabilization. The second camera is an ultra-wide sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. The telephoto lens or as Huawei calls it the periscope lens is an 8MP sensor that supports 5x optical zoom. The P30 Pro also supports high ISO levels of up to 409600 (P30 Pro), which basically means it can take awesome low-light shots. Pricing and availability The Huawei P30 Pro will only be offered in one variant i.e. 8GB & 256GB internal storage, and it's priced at Rs. 71,990. You'll be able to pick one up from Amazon India starting 16 April. P30 Lite In addition to the P30 Pro, Huawei has also launched the P30 Lite in India. It's essentially a toned down version the P30 Pro, and it's powered by the mid-range Kirin 710 SoC. Though the P30 Lite has the same design aesthetics as the P30 Pro, there are a few noteworthy differences. The P30 Lite doesn't have an in-display fingerprint scanner and has a physical scanner at the back. It also has a smaller 6.17-inch FHD LCD display. Also, the P30 Lite only has three cameras on the back consisting of a 24 MP primary camera, an 8 MP wide-angle lens and a 2 MP camera for the depth effect. Moving on to the pricing, the P30 Lite will cost Rs. 19,990 for the 4GB + 128GB while the 6GB + 128 GB variant will cost Rs 22,990. You can pick up the phone from Amazon starting 26 April.
  2. The 2019 iPhone and rumours surrounding the device have now escalated, which has brought us new information about its features. Some may be true and some may not be a part of the final product. That's something we can never be sure of as rumours tend to be unreliable. Having said that, there are some rumours that keep popping up and eventually turn out to be true when the device eventually launches. Apple generally launches a new iPhone every year at its September hardware event and we decided to list down some of the features that may just come to the future iPhone: 1. Reverse Wireless Charging © Twitter Apple recently announced a new wireless charging case for AirPods and with the recent cancellation of the AirPower, we can expect the next iPhone to support some sort of bilateral wireless charging. Currently, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S10 offers this feature and can be used to charge other Qi-enabled devices. Samsung made the best use of this feature by letting the smartphone charge the new Galaxy Buds. 2. Triple Rear Camera© Twitter_Evenleaks We first saw a triple camera set up on the next iPhone in the form of a render way back in January and it seems like a recent schematic leak may have confirmed that claim. Schematics of the next shows the metal chassis of the phone which may be used for welding of the body. The rear cutout for the camera system is the most stand-out feature where there are three circular cut-outs for the camera lenses. If you want to know more, you can read all about it here. 3. A Smaller Notch © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP Currently, iPhone XS, XS Max, XR and X use a notch on its display that hosts an array of sensors for FaceID. This allows the smartphone to map a user's face and unlock the smartphone based on the person's facial features. AMS, the Austrian company which provides Apple with optical sensors for the TrueDepth camera has developed a new sensor that can trace ambient light from behind an OLED screen. It also has a proximity sensor which is currently housed in the notch of the iPhone. There is a possibility than iPhones may now have a smaller notch as some of these sensors can now be embedded in the screen. Having said that, Apple still needs to put a selfie camera on the front which may be under a smaller notch. There's no certainty whether Apple will implement the new sensors in the 2019 iPhone however we are keeping our fingers crossed. 4. Bigger Battery © YouTube Currently, the iPhone XS features a 2,658mAh battery while the larger iPhone XS Max has a 3,175 mAh battery. The cheaper iPhone XR has a battery size of 2,942 mAh. That's not a lot if Apple is considering to utilise the reverse wireless charging feature. According to reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will be increasing the size of its batteries on all models of iPhones this year. This, in turn, will enable the iPhone to have enough juice to charge other devices like the new AirPods.
  3. It's Game Developer's Week and Google just stole the show with a game streaming service called 'Stadia' that challenges the current status quo of the gaming industry. The service will let users stream AAA demanding games to PC, Mobiles, Tablets, Chromecast and Laptops from the cloud and is expected to launch sometime in 2019. Having said that, the streaming service is not scheduled to launch in India anytime soon. There are many contributing factors such as low internet speeds and general infrastructure that is currently not up to the mark when compared to the US, Canada, UK, and Europe. If you want to know how Stadia works and what all it can do, you can read all about it here. © YouTube However, India is one of the fastest growing markets for internet services where the country is the second largest market for smartphones. India also has the cheapest internet plans across all service providers which has increased the number of internet users in India tenfold. For Google, this is potentially the biggest untapped market as mobile gaming in India has become the preferred choice of platform for Indian gamers. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla With the sudden success of PUBG Mobile, demand for gaming smartphones has increased ever since the phenomenon took over the country. It proves that India has a huge pool of gamers on smartphones that have made games like PUBG a huge success. Smartphone gaming is extremely important for Indian customers and Google's new service can potentially provide AAA gaming to an audience that can't afford to build their own PCs or buy new consoles. For many, it will be a first-time experience that will no longer be exclusive to the affluent or passionate gamer. Gaming Is Expensive In India © MensXP Gaming is an expensive affair in India and if you want to get a real feel of India's gaming scene, Akhil Arora from NDTV paints the true picture in his piece here. Games are generally sold in India for $60 ( a direct conversion) for an audience that does not earn in the same currency. The story gets worse for hardware because of India's harsh import duties and taxes on gaming consoles. As NDTV points out “A salaried middle-class Indian has to work 9-14 times more to afford a PS4.” It's a real problem here that can be resolved by Google's Stadia platform. Not only does the streaming service makes games accessible and cheaper, but it also lets users play games on devices they already own. For the first time in India's gaming industry history, AAA gaming can be mainstream and affordable thanks to services like Stadia. What Are The Barriers? © Youtube Let's face it, India does not have the required infrastructure to support game streaming at the moment, at least on a large scale. Even though ISPs now offer Gigabit connections, it's still not as widespread as it should be. Having said that, India is on the path of rapid Digital development with companies like Jio making fibernet accessible and affordable for the average Indian. Latency is the obvious issue here that needs to address which we can only know when Google Stadia launches. © Reuters Coming back to smartphone gaming, 5G is said to support smooth game streaming, however, we won't see 5G services launch in India before 2021. In fact, we don't even know how well game streaming will run as it has not been tested in the real world yet. Having said that, the future does look bright for Google Stadia in India, as the country's infrastructure is growing at a rapid pace and doesn't look like it will slow down anytime soon. Sure, it may be a few years away but sooner or later, Google Stadia will change the game for an average Indian gamer. Are you interested in Google's Stadia platform? Would you like to play AAA games on your smartphone or tablet? Let us know in the comments what you think about Stadia.ee
  4. Almost six years since 'Aashiqui 2' set screens on fire in 2013 and the Hindi film industry beheld its newest entrant in the 'promising male lead' category, Aditya Roy Kapur is now, once again, all set to join hands with the very man who made it all possible the first time. Aditya has time and again proved that he is an actor with reliable calibre, whether he essayed the role of a supporting actor or a lead star in a film. Be it Avinash in 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' or Aditya in 'Ok Jaanu', he has impressed us with all his performances. Mohit Suri too has given us some good movies like 'Ek Villian' and 'Humari Adhuri Kahani' besides others. Aaj Se Malang! ð¬@mohit11481 @AnilKapoor #AdityaRoyKapur @DishPatani @kunalkemmu @itsBhushanKumar @luv_ranjan @gargankur @jayshewakramani @TSeries @LuvFilms pic.twitter.com/YzmRVzisxh — MALANG (@MalangFilm) March 16, 2019 Now the 'Aashiqui 2' director and Aditya have come together once again for their second collaboration called 'Malang'. The makers of the film announced today that the film will soon hit the floor. Their last venture together in 'Aashiqui 2' had been a mega success at the box office, and we can only hope for great things even this time around, given their history. While the tabloids have already started digging for more details around the film, here is everything that we know so far: 1. Besides Aditya Roy Kapoor and Anil Kapoor, Disha Patani and Kunal Kemmu will also be seen in the film in important roles. View this post on Instagram Let's get CRAZY,INTENSE and #MALANG @anilskapoor Sir @adityaroykapur @dishapatani @khemster2 @malangfilm @aseemarora @tseries.official @luv_films #BhushanKumar #LuvRanjan @gargankur82 @jayshewakramani A post shared by mohitsuri (@mohitsuri) on Mar 3, 2019 at 8:12pm PST 2. As per latest reports, 'Malang' will be a romantic horror film, and in a media statement, Mohit said, “With Malang, I am essentially returning to the genre I enjoy the most. It will be intense, edgy and mad. I hope Malang is as thrilling and exciting an experience for the audience to see as much as it has already been for me.” 3. 'Malang' is being co-produced by Luv Films and T-Series, and both of these production houses have some great titles under their belt, which have done well at the box office. View this post on Instagram On a new journey with the man that changed it all for me. A post shared by @ adityaroykapur on Mar 15, 2019 at 8:41pm PDT 4. This will be Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani's first on-screen pairing and we are excited to see how it turns out. Aditya will next be seen in 'Kalank', while Disha's upcoming release is Salman-Katrina starrer 'Bharat'. 5. 'Malang' is expected to release around Valentine's Day next year in 2020.
  5. When it comes to redemption in the domain of style, no one in Bollywood quite had it as successfully as a certain Mr Suniel Shetty. From shabby, ill-fitting clothes during the '90s to being the picture of suavity currently, at the age of 57 (what?), his style game has only improved with age - just like fine wine. What sets him apart from the crowd is his versatility, especially his comfort with pulling off traditional Indian wear as nonchalantly as athleisure. The way he pulls off a dhoti like it's no big deal, is one for the books, and here are 8 times he wore it, rocked it, and showed it why it needs to come back to our wardrobes immediately. 1. When he wore it with a smart black sherwani and paired it with a pocket square and black leather jootis. © Viral Bhayani 2. When he went for the most basic but most sophisticated outfit ever - the white dhoti with a white kurta. © Viral Bhayani 3. When he added a classy twist to the all-white dhoti kurta combo with a blue bandhgala waistcoat. © Instagram 4. A grey dhoti with a black border? Yes, please! © Twitter/SunielShetty_FC 5.

  6. Marvel vs DC is an argument that will never end, even when Jason Momoa has said “screw it”, and supported all the other superheroes from other universes as well. © Instagram But, fans always love a heated debate on crucial matters like which cinematic universe is better, which superhero is better than the other, and now, even which villain is better. A new form of Marvel Vs DC argument began yesterday, with people trying to figure out who's a better villain - Thanos or Bane. Thanos or Bane? Let's argue. — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) March 5, 2019 Both of them have proved how powerful and well, villainous, they are in their own right. I mean, Thanos basically defeated the Avengers the last time we saw him, and 'dusted' half the life in the entire universe and Bane is, well, the bane of Batman's existence. And thus, a discussion began. Compelling argument. Bane lost to Batman, Thanos destroyed the Avengers. — David Weissman (@davidmweissman) March 5, 2019 Well. Bane lost to the dude that took down the Justice League, depending on how you slice things — Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) March 5, 2019 There's a lot of love for Thanos. Thanos no question. U caping for DC Comics I see lol — Damien Woody (@damienwoody) March 5, 2019 A very, very important addition. pic.twitter.com/UzpQ2Cor1G — Edgar Fernandez (@Edgar_usmc) March 5, 2019 More love for Thanos. Okay. Thanos defeated the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Bane was essentially Talia's henchman who got taken out by Catwoman pressing the wrong button on the Batpod. — Sean Campbell (@Melanism) March 5, 2019 Good point. Thanos hung his own jersey from the rafters... #NoBrainer pic.twitter.com/GQldt3TcwS — Chuck Whitlock II (@2Kalculated_) March 5, 2019 Thanos, all the way. If it's Bane from Dark Knight Rises, Thanos wins in a landslide. If this is juiced up, big hulking Arkham Asylum/comics Bane.......Thanos wins in a landslide https://t.co/zCyVpk9oET — Vox da ghost (@Goldyvox) March 5, 2019 Oh, wait. “Thanos or Bane? Let's-“ *snaps* https://t.co/Nv6frGjJV7 — lauren warrenðSXSW (@iamlaurenp) March 5, 2019 A nicely put argument. If you're asking who would win in a fight, Thanos would beat Bane without breaking a sweat, infinity stones or not. He's a titan. If it's whose performance was better, Tom Hardy is 3 car lengths ahead of Josh Brolin. — Rusty Westerholm (@RustyWesterholm) March 5, 2019 Thanos wouldn't dare. Bane even died in a cartoonish way. Got hit by Catwoman crashing in on a moped. Thanos would never. — ðððATLANTA IS A SOCCER TOWN! ððð(@Lex_Naija) March 5, 2019 No one can compete with Thanos' powers. Hmmmm………. Tough question. I'll say it depends on what we are comparing here. Physical powers? Ideology? Their respective personal stories? Bane's story and personality are far more interesting but Thanos's powers are not up for discussion. https://t.co/zkgvptb63H — Puff Mammy. (@PaolaAudrey) March 5, 2019 Some love for Bane. This isn't even a contest. Bane broke Batman without a bunch of all powerful infiniti stones. His motive is he just wants to burn everything down because society is too corrupt. That's more interesting than some arbitrary bullshit about getting rid of half of everyone. https://t.co/8sbwKkh72e — Chett Manley (@ChettManley) March 5, 2019 Finally. Tryna figure out how in any universe Bane vs Thanos is even up for discussion ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ð¤¦ð¾‍âï¸ pic.twitter.com/93IpHV0qoV — Jay Papito De'leon (@BIGMONEY_JAYYY) March 5, 2019
  7. Here's a little story of instant karma that will make anyone laugh, mainly because it looks like something straight out of a Bollywood movie. To sum it up, two robbers were trying to get away after stealing about Rs 40 lakh from an ATM in Noida but ended up falling off their bike. If that wasn't bad enough, the onlookers ended up stealing the money they just stole from the ATM. It all went down at around 1:30 pm, when the custodians from a cash refilling agency reached the State Bank of India ATM in Sector 82, under Noida's Phase 2 police station limits, to replenish the cash. Pretty normal, right? Nothing out of the ordinary. But, the problem started as soon as officials stepped out of the cash van as two guys got off their bike and opened fire. Then they managed to grab the bag which contained approximately Rs 40 lakh in cash and ran away. Till this point, everything seemed pretty serious but the fun part is coming up. A police spokesperson said, “While trying to get away, their speeding motorcycle collided with another vehicle and the robbers fell down. At this point, the bag filled with cash opened and hundreds of currency notes were scattered across the road.” And obviously, where there's money, there are people ready to try and grab what they can. A lot of onlookers picked up money and walked away, because what else are they going to do. Don't worry, the robbers' bad luck doesn't end there as they were also arrested. The spokesperson said, “The arrested accused has been identified as Nannhe, a native of adjoining Bulandshahr district, and a bag with Rs 19.65 lakh was seized from him.” So, what this means is that the people basically got away with taking about Rs 20 lakh cash. I have no words.
  8. Let's talk about sports and grooming going hand in hand for a second. Sports is an intense field and if you engage with it, it leaves you all sweaty and messed up. However, some men know how to clean up well even on the field and even after a long and tiresome match they still look on point. So here is list of Indian sports men that really know their grooming men. 1. Ishant Sharma © Getty Images While Ishant Sharma might have been punished for having long hair in school, he's really turned it around as an adult. His shoulder length mane adds a certain character to his personality. Imagine Ishant Sharma without this hair! Well, we can't either. 2. Virat Kohli © Getty Images Not that Virat Kohli didn't look great before his days with Anushka Sharma, but we feel since she has stepped into his life, he's really understood the importance of grooming, maintaining the perfect hairstyle and a beard style that looks like a million bucks on him. 3. Hardik Pandya © Getty Images Now, we know that he's received a lot of flak recently for his controversial 'Koffee With Karan' comments, however the guy does clean up well. We can't really question that, can we? 4. Sunil Chhetri © Getty Images Apart from being the striker/winger and captains for both the Indian Super League side Bengaluru FC and the Indian national football team, Sunil Chhetri also sports a stunning haircut. 5. Sandesh Jhingan © Getty Images Sandesh Jhingan is the defender for Kerala Blasters FC of the Indian Super League and the Indian football team. He is a good example of showing that even messy hair can look really good if you're comfortable in your skin. 6. K.L.Rahul © MensXP K.L Rahul is another cricketer we wish we got grooming lessons from. His look is very cleverly put together, so it looks effortless and clean.
  9. Lionel Messi has achieved everything there is to achieve on a club-football level. The Barcelona FC star has not only brought his club to the fore on innumerable occasions but also has made a name for himself, in doing so, as arguably the best player in the game in our generation. His greatness at Camp Nou is rock solid and unquestionable. However, the only stain, and a big one at that, on Messi's illustrious career is that of the lack of success on the international level for his country of Argentina. After losing in the Copa America final for four years, the last being in 2016 which also led to him officially retire from the international scenario out of the sheer exasperation, the Argentinian faced his latest disappointment during the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia in which his side was eliminated by France, who went on to win the tournament, in the Round of 16. © Reuters The World Cup loss last year left a real scar on Messi who went AWOL on the team and has been on sabbatical ever since. What irks the supporters of Messi's national team is the fact that he showed no interest in returning until the current President of the Argentine Football Association, Claudio Tapia dropped an easter egg of sorts, on the legend's return in the blue and white. While the star himself has not officially made a statement on playing the 2019 Copa America in June but Team Argentina's interim coach, Lionel Scaloni believes that Messi will come out of this self-inflicted banishment in as early as March. "We will speak with Leo in the days before the March list. When the time is right we will speak," Scaloni told the local reporters as reported by The Times Of India. "I hope he can be here but more than that, we want him to be happy. I have a good feeling." Lionel Messi will be touching 32 years of age by the time Copa America commences. That's a lot of miles put on Leo's legs. With age catching up on him like it does to every other athlete, Messi realises that he needs to take care of his body and choose his games carefully.
  10. Apple's AirPod wireless headphones have been one of the firm's most successful products - and a much anticipated new version is in the works and expected to be launched in the first half of 2019. Patent filings suggest the company is pretty much ready with the design and mass production is just around the corner. Reports by DigiTimes and 9To5Mac indicate the new AirPods 2 are just on the way. Up till now, we've barely heard about the second generation earbuds and many expected Apple to launch them last year. According to 9To5Mac, a "Hey Siri" configuration tool found in Apple's latest iOS 12.2 beta suggests the new AirPods are coming soon. © 9To5Mac If Siri setup has AirPods inclusion, it means the second generation AirPods could bring in "Hey Siri" functionality. In this case, the audio processing shall be done by the AirPods itself, and not the connected iPhone. The new AirPods are expected to have a heart rate sensor, enabling tracking of fitness activities. Since the launch of the Apple Watch, the company has increased its focus on health tracking and slowly started integrating everything in the Health SDK. © Apple "If you zoom out into the future and you look back and you ask the question: 'What was Apple's greatest contribution to mankind?' It will be about health," Tim Cook said in a recent interview to CNBC. According to a fairly old report from Bloomberg, the new pair of earbuds are also going to be waterproof and house better Bluetooth connectivity than their predecessors, thanks to the inclusion of the W2 chip. The same chipset has also been used onboard the Apple Watch Series 3. © Apple Lastly, the AirPods 2 are expected to have wireless charging capabilities. Since the launch of the iPhone 8, Apple has committed itself to going completely wireless. Though, the company still hasn't been able to launch the AirPower mat that can charge multiple devices at once. Rumours suggest the brand could finally launch the AirPower mat along with the AirPods 2. Keep in mind, much of this is speculation and based on informal reports. There has been no official confirmation from Apple about the AirPods 2 development.
  11. Instead of the Avengers assembling, this time we had a pure moment of Marvel fans assembling to make a dying man's wish come true. A 33-year-old Marvel fan from Australia named Alexander is suffering from liver cancer, mouth cancer, and the rare genetic disease Fanconi anaemia which affects the bone marrow, and he thinks he could die before the official release of the movie 'Avengers: Endgame'. Being a huge fan, he decided to try his luck and asked people to help him get an early screening of the movie with a post on Reddit. But, he also noted he's “not a child or anyone with a particularly tragic story”, just a normal guy. He thought he would make it to April, but his “bone marrow is toast”. It's good to see that even with so much happening, Alexander hasn't lost his sense of humour since the Reddit thread is called “Dying Before April: My Endgame”. Obviously, anyone would do anything to catch an early screening of one of the most awaited movies, but this is a special case and all the Marvel fans united to get Marvel and Disney to take notice. The internet came together and the hashtag #Avengers4Alexander spread on Twitter. With an update on the original post, he informed everyone that even apparently Chris Hemsworth, God of Thunder himself is aware of the situation because “Australia is a small place, turns out I know a guy who knows a guy who is chums with Chris Hemsworth”. With so many well wishes coming his way, he also wrote, “I don't know what the outcome will be but this has been amazing. If it doesn't pan out don't sweat it - I'll carry your kind words with me and that's worth far more.” He also took a cheeky shot and said, “Lastly, I don't mean to be greedy but since I'm triple dying can we throw Captain Marvel into the mix?” With this request, he also shared a picture of his dog as a bribe. And then, it finally happened, Disney reached out to him and the whole thing turned into one of the those rare, beautiful internet moments where everyone works together. Sharing the exciting news, his last update on the Reddit post is - “Disney have reached out and we are discussing options. I cried when I read their email. It's everything I hoped for and I owe it to all of you.” People on Twitter are also very excited about his wish come true and have nothing but appreciation for everyone who held make it happen. A man will get his dying wish fulfilled. Thanks to the beautiful internet. 10 years back this wouldn't have been possible. This is some good stuff that we have achieved.https://t.co/xacO9U6KKc#avengers4alexander#avengersforalexander#AvengersEndGame #10yearchallenge — Anuj Godase (@dahelmetguy) January 19, 2019 Sometimes, it is.

  12. Indian wicket-keeper and batsman, Rishabh Pant was one of the star performers for the Indian side during the 4-game Test series against Australia. With a big-time performance in the first innings of the Sydney Test, Pant, with his 159* runs, has put the Indian cricket team selectors in bewilderment in deciding the final roster for the 2019 ICC World Cup tournament, that is to be held in England and Wales between 30th May and 14th July. 150 runs for @RishabPant777 ððð#TeamIndia 616/6#AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/vZFY9hunBL — BCCI (@BCCI) January 4, 2019 On Wednesday, the Cricket Club of India was buzzing with celebratory cheers on the occasion of Indian legend Kapil Dev's 60th Birthday when former Team India player Farokh Engineer bounced, what is probably the most important question of the hour, at the team selectors: “Would you pick Dhoni for the World Cup? How can you drop Pant? He has done so well,” bombarded Engineer. When it comes to ODIs, Pant's opportunity to play for the team has been taken away either by MS Dhoni or Dinesh Kartik on multiple occasions. Even when the 21-year-old did get a chance to play against the Windies in a three-game series last year, Pant didn't face a lot of balls to prove his worth as a batsman and got out early. In an odd complexity of misfortune, Pant is stuck in a unique juxtaposition between “not experienced enough” and “not given enough time to gain experience.” Ironically, the thing that makes Pant so impressive in the eyes of the Indian cricket fans may also be the bane of his World Cup chances, and that's his age. With Dhoni and Kartik, both healthy and ready to get in action, probably the most common argument Pant would hear would be how young he is and how he will have many more World Cups to take part in, as he grows older and wiser. India have MS Dhoni ahead of Pant for the ODI series. pic.twitter.com/XvGwLSg5zM — Dennis Pucovski (@DennisCricket_) January 4, 2019 Despite chief selector MSK Prasad ensuring that Pant was one of the key contenders for a spot in the 2019 World Cup roster, he was not selected for the three-game ODI series against Australia or the five-game series against New Zealand which follows. Having said that, Pant has been selected to be a part of India A for the five-game series against the England Lions. If things are considered on a priority basis, Pant's very little experience in the 50-over format of the game, no matter how hapless, makes for a solid case for him to miss out on this year's World Cup.

  14. Arguably two of the greatest footballers of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi share a rivalry like no other in international football. The sport has seen many superstars over the ages, but the decade-long reign of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is arguably something that's going to last in our memories for a really long time. The two footballing greats have made the sport their own playing arena and the fact that they have won a record five Ballon d'Ors, goes on to show how dominant they have been in the last decade. The duel for football's top individual award began in 2008 when Ronaldo pipped Messi to bag his first Ballon d'Or. However, Messi staged a spectacular comeback a year later and went on to bag the coveted award for four successive years. Then, Ronaldo bounced back to clinch the prestigious award in 2013 and 2014 before Messi took his tally to a record five Ballon d'Or wins in 2015. While many ruled the Portuguese out of the race, Ronaldo stunned everyone by bagging the award in 2016 and 2017, once again proving he's second to none. © Reuters But, a lot has changed since Ronaldo won the award last year. His domination at the Ballon d'Or with Messi has come to an end with Luka Modric winning this year's award. Ronaldo has swapped Real Madrid for Juventus and La Liga for Serie A. And, the rare sight of Ronaldo and Messi featuring as rivals on the pitch is now restricted to UEFA Champions League (in club football). Ronaldo's move to Italy also means that Messi is now the sole king of the Spanish league, plying his trade with Barcelona. But, the football fans, who've cherished their rivalry over the years, surely got excited when the Portugal international urged his long-time rival to challenge himself by playing in Italy. Talking to the Italian press, Ronaldo said: "I'd like him to come to Italy one day. I hope he accepts the challenge like me, but if he's happy there then I respect that". Asked if he missed the 31-year-old Argentine, who has spent his entire senior career at Barcelona, Ronaldo replied: "No, maybe it's him who misses me" © Reuters "I've played in England, Spain, Italy, Portugal and for my national team, while he's still in Spain. Maybe he needs me more. For me, life is a challenge, I like it and I like to make people happy. He's a fantastic player and a good guy, but I don't miss anything here. This is my new life and I'm happy. I left my comfort zone and took on this challenge here in Turin, everything has gone well, I've proven I'm still an incredible player," Ronaldo said. Following Real Madrid's Champions League title in the 2017/18 season, the 33-year-old Portuguese stunned everyone by claiming that he is ready to move away from Santiago Bernabeu. Later, he joined Juventus for a staggering $114 million. Since then, Ronaldo has scored 10 goals in 15 league games to help the Turin giants get off to a record start in the 2018/19 Serie A season.
  15. Building a PC can be a daunting task as you are always left confused with what you actually want. I had one goal set in my mind — build the ultimate gaming rig in my budget. Sure, this may seem like an overkill because of all the specs and components, but it's something I wanted to build at least once in my life. I visited Gamescom this year and saw Nvidia's RTX in action first-hand. That's when I decided I wanted to build myself a gaming PC that would surpass even my own expectations. I've been saving up for a PC for almost 3 years and I finally decided to take that plunge a month ago. I've been reviewing games on it and been checking out the RTX features on 'Battlefield V', but that's for another time. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla My goal was simple, build the ultimate gaming PC that could outrun the latest games without any lag and achieve the best frame rates possible. Parameters for the best gaming PC have now changed. Earlier it was all about the best frame rates. However, I also wanted to build a PC that was 4K ready and could stream my games on YouTube/Twitch with ease. I built this PC with the help of my friend who advised me about everything I need for my setup. Here's what we ended up building: 1. CPU: Intel i7-8700K (Rs 32,627) © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The CPU is probably where you should start when you try to build your own gaming rig. It's the most important component of your PC as it is responsible for putting together your entire build. We chose to get the Intel i7-8700K for our setup as Intel has been renowned for making some of the best CPUs for gaming. We could have chosen AMD's Ryzen platform instead. However, since I had my eyes set on the RTX 2080 Ti, it would not have served the purpose. 2. Asus ROG STRIX Z370E Gaming Motherboard (Rs 24,300) © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Choosing the right motherboard is probably the next big step you will have to take. The ROG STRIX Z370E is one of those high-end MOBOs that offer more than you could ask for. It has two ASM3142 controllers that separately provide Type-C and Type-A ports to the rear, and a USB 3.1 Gen2 at the front. It's a very clean motherboard that offers 2 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8), 1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (max at x4 mode), 4 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x1. It even supports NVIDIA 2-Way SLI Technology and AMD 3-Way CrossFireX Technology which we didn't take advantage of for this setup. For more detailed information about this motherboard, you can head over to ASUS website here. 3. G.Skill Trident Z 2x16GB RGB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM (Rs 26,271) © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla If you need the speed, you have to invest in a solid RAM as it will make your life easier when playing games. We opted to go with the G.Skill Trident 2x16GB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM as it was perfect for our gaming needs. Apart from performing well, it also needed to look good and this particular RAM is equipped with an RGB lightbar. However, the G.Skill Trident Z refuses to run at that speed but was rock solid at 3000MHz which was more than enough for daily gaming. 4. Zotac GeForce RTX 2080Ti AMP (Rs 1,15,000) © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Investing in a proper graphics card can either make or break your experience. One needs to invest in a graphics card that is future proof and can run current games at ease without any frame rate drops. The Zotac GeForce RTX 2080Ti AMP has three fans which allow better cooling and overclocking. It's based on Nvidia's new Turing architecture that does a lot more than previous iterations. The Zotac RTX 2080 Ti AMP features 4,352 CUDA cores, 11GB of GDDR6 video memory, a memory clock of 14Gbps, and a stock boost clock of 1665MHz. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla It also offers Deep Learning Super Sampling or DLSS which basically loads the game into a neural network. AI then uses machine learning to produce a perfect version of the image. For more info about Nvidia's latest Turing architecture, you can read about it in detail here. 5. Corsair VS650 650 Watt Power Supply Unit (Rs 5,090) The power supply unit (PSU) is something you cannot ignore or want to save money on. With a setup like this, you will need a powerful PSU that doesn't burn up your expensive components. We chose the Corsair VS650 650 Watt PSU as it fits perfectly in our case and more importantly, can handle the amount of power our PC draws. 6. Corsair Hydro Series H100i GTX Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler (Rs 9,000) © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When you're running a gaming PC with these specs, you will need a reliable CPU cooler that will keep everything cool. We first bought the Coolermaster Liquid 240 which turned out to be faulty as the temperature on our CPU was going up to 84 degrees on idle. We replaced it with another Liquid 240 CPU cooler that also turned out to be faulty and finally decided to go with the Corsair Hydro Series H100i. From personal experience, we can confidently say always test the components you buy. With the experience we had, we're never buying another Coolermaster product again. 7. Memory © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla With a gaming rig like this, you need to invest in an SSD as it keeps your machine running at top speed. It will help you boot your system faster and reduce loading times as well. Having said that, we aren't using the SSD for booting up games as we use it exclusively for booting up applications such as Photoshop, Premier Pro and Streamlabs OBS. Instead, we installed two 7200 RPM 4TB hard drives and coupled one of them with Intel's 32GB Optane memory. This is where we store all our games and it effectively runs as fast as the SSD with the added advantage of 4TB storage. . Samsung 970 EVO SSD 500GB (Rs 17,999) . 2XSeagate IronWolf 4TB 7200RPM HDD (Rs 16,500) . Intel Optane Memory 16GB PCIe M.2 (Rs 4,089) Peripherals © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Peripherals such as a keyboard, mouse and the case are quite subjective and depend entirely on your budget and taste. The display also depends on what kind of refresh rate you require or whether you want to game in 4K resolution. So without getting into many details, here's what we are using for playing games on our setup: . CORSAIR K70 LUX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Rs 11,880) . Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB Tunable Gaming Mouse (Rs 5,995) . Acer 28 inch (71.12 cm) 4K Monitor (Rs 26,500) . Aorus Gigabyte AC300W R2 ATX Mid-Tower Case (Rs 4,000) . HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset (Rs 11,500) So there you have it, our high-end gaming PC that's future-proof for the next three years. It may seem like an overkill; however, PC gamers always aspire to have the best and we tried to achieve that with this setup. You can always run down the cost by picking cheaper options. However, in our experience, it turned out to be a bust as two coolants of the same brand turned out to be faulty. If you need help in building a PC, you can always hit us up on social media and we may give you the best options for your budget.

  17. Losing fat isn't rocket science, but it sure does take a lot of heart and will to completely transform the body. Just like we keep the sugar coating away at MensXP Health, this article lists out 5 truths about a person's fat loss journey. 1) It Takes Time Heard the saying that good things take time? This holds especially true when it comes to dieting and achieving low levels of body fat. The process is not that quick. All those 6-weeks to shred or 12-week transformation programs do not really work. At least not in the long term! You may end up losing a lot of body fat during this time if you resort to extreme measures, but these so-called transformations won't stick. © Thinkstock 2) You Will Lose Some Of Your Lean Body Mass Not too good to read, I know. But as your diet progresses and you get leaner and leaner, some of your lean body mass will be lost. The speed of your fat loss will also determine lean body mass losses. The faster you try to strip your body fat/weight off, all the more lean body mass would be lost. That is because it is easier for your body to break down muscle tissue for energy when energy intake (calories) is severely restricted. 3) Your Energy Levels Will Be Lower As your caloric intake would be restricted, your body will do its best to save as much energy as it can. That is because your body sees your fat loss diet as a starvation signal and adapts accordingly. The survival mechanism will kick in and your body will reduce its energy expenditure both consciously and sub-consciously. This means, making you a bit lazier and subconsciously making decisions like taking the elevator instead of the stairs. Not moving from the chair for longer hours during work and so on. © Pixabay 4) There Will Be Progress Plateaus Getting to single digits of body fat is not smooth sailing. There will be periods of stalls and plateaus during your diet and these are the most testing periods. This will be the time, when you will be tested and will find yourself asking if it really is worth the effort? It will suck seeing those plateaus and your mental resolve will be tested to a very great extent during this phase. 5) Tracking Will Become All The More Important The measures that are relatively unimportant during the beginning of your fat loss journey will soon become all the more important as you keep progressing. Bodybuilding or achieving body fat levels of bodybuilders or physique athletes is hard. As you get leaner, all those tiny details like food measures to the accurate gram, cooking oil to the gram, tracking of calories, tracking of body weight, tracking of measurements, tracking of daily steps walked for your NEAT levels, etc. will hold a lot of importance.

  18. We all grew up watching 'FRIENDS' and it never gets old. Every time you're in a dilemma about what to watch, or you just want to watch something while having dinner, or you simply need to zone out for some time, 'FRIENDS' is the answer. You can just start watching any random episode and it would never disappoint. Some of us have watched it so many times, that we can remember every single line from the show. But still, there are certain facts about the series which might still be unknown to you. Here are 10 interesting facts about the iconic show, that may come as a surprise to you: 1. Four Six © Warner Bros The main cast of 6 was initially meant to be of 4. In the early stages, Chandler & Phoebe were supposed to be just the supporting cast. Whatever the reason was to include these two in the main cast, we're glad it happened! 2. The Unfair Emmy Courteney Cox, aka Monica, was the only regular cast member who didn't get nominated for an Emmy. This was as bizarre as Joey-Rachel's relationship! 3. The 'Scientist Guy' Joey Hank Azaria, the guy who played the role of Phoebe's scientist boyfriend David, tried twice for the role of Joey. Thankfully, the casting team had a better taste and they chose Matt LeBlanc instead. 4. The Theme Song How many of you clap your hands along with the theme song? Initially, the theme song selected for the show was “Shiny Happy People” by REM. The show was named 'Friends Like Us' back then but eventually, it became F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and we got a new theme song with it. 5. The Gay Chandler Writers initially thought to make Chandler gay. In fact, when Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox read the script for the first time, they thought Chandler was gay. They even admitted thinking Chandler was gay on the show. 6. The Blunder Ellen DeGeneres turned down the role of Phoebe. Can you imagine? 7. Ross's Monkey © Warner Bros Marcel, the monkey, was actually played by two monkeys named Katie and Monkey. 8. Courteney Cox As Rachel? Producers offered Courteney the role of Rachel. But Courteney thought she was better suited for Monica, as she could easily relate to the character. 9. David Schwimmer, The Man! David Schwimmer was the first to be cast in the show. In fact, writers wrote the role of Ross keeping David in mind. Talk about popularity, eh? 10. Ross and Rachel WERE off the table The see-sawing romance of Ross & Rachel wasn't supposed to be the centre of the show. However, seeing their on-screen chemistry and the love of the audience for the couple, the show was developed in such a way, that their relationship was often under the spotlight. And that's how we got the iconic 'I got off the plane' dialogue! So, which one of these came as the biggest surprise for you? Was it Chandler originally being a gay character, or Courteney Cox being offered the role of Rachel? Let us know in the comment section.
  19. Nice guys don't always finish last, but if you're way too nice then there are chances you can come off as boring, giving women a chance to walk all over you. So, being a nice guy or being too nice doesn't often play as well as you want it to. I am not saying be an ass**** or have any bad boy traits, all I am saying is, play it cool and don't be naive when you're trying to woo a woman you like. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images I am sure you've heard women say at times 'yeah he was okay, but he was just too nice'. That's the sentence that eliminates any challenge or chase that she may want or expect from you. So, in order to cure the 'nice guy' syndrome, here are a few things you can do to save yourself from an unnecessary rejection and get that second date: (1) Stop Being Predictable Women often recognise a pattern that men may have if they like them. Like for instance, if you're texting her all the time, asking her out for coffee and movies and generally being predictable with your actions, she knows what's in store for her. Instead, do unusual things every now and then to throw her off her game, or to keep her from finding out yours. (c)Giphy (2) Don't Be Needy That's the biggest red flag ever. Too needy is also too boring. You don't want to be the needy clinger who is always there trying to get her attention. She will definitely run miles away from you! Do your own thing, have your own life and include her in yours whenever you get a chance to. No one likes needy clingy boys. (c)Giphy (3) Don't Be Too Available That's almost the same as being needy. It's when she feels like she wants to see you, you're always available. Try and be a little less available and mysterious for her. She'll definitely want to see you more and will find you elusive and less boring. (c)Giphy (4) Don't Let Her Walk All Over You If you're too nice to her she will definitely want to take advantage of the situation as much as she can. Not in an evil twisted way, but all women at most times are confused as to what they want from a guy. So, if the guy is readily available, fulfilling all their wishes all the time, then they will take advantage of that. They may not necessarily want to walk all over you, but they will find you boring regardless. (c)Giphy (5) Go Beyond Your Comfort Zone Women like adventurous men who are risk takers. They like men who love exploring new things and taking risks. So, I guess it's time to change your lifestyle. Go out of your comfort zone and take a few risks and break that boring 'nice guy' pattern. (c)Giphy There's a lot more than just being 'a nice guy' all the time. If you break a certain pattern and let her see how you can have different shades to you, there is no way in hell she will ever find you boring.
  20. As a kid I often fancied living like royalty. Members of the royal family live in a separate world of their own. Their lifestyle, their events, parties, basically everything is different from ours. At least that's what the common notion is, right? Reuters But, thanks to Prince Harry, I got to know that there isn't much of a difference when it comes to the royal parties. It was Meghan Markle's charity cookbook event and Prince Harry stole the show after he was caught sneaking a samosa home. Reuters When everyone was busy chatting and looking elsewhere, the Duke of Sussex, was seen hiding the samosa behind his back. The moment he realised that he was caught red-handed, he gave a cheeky smile. I could be wrong but I reckon we've caught Prince Harry red handed stealing some samosas from the Meghan's 'Together' cookbook event they were at today!! Have a watch... #HubbCommunityKitchen @KensingtonRoyal pic.twitter.com/3BWd0TYqj8 — Chris Ship (@chrisshipitv) September 20, 2018 Reportedly, the vegetable samosas are a part of Meghan's project, 'Together: Our Community Cookbook'. Addressing the event, Meghan said "Working on this project for the past nine months has been a tremendous labor of love. I had just recently moved to London and felt so immediately embraced by the women in the kitchen with your warmth, and your kindness." We guess no one can understand his act and his love for samosa more than us. After all, we all have been there and done exactly that.
  21. Before we tell you why Google Wi-Fi is perfect for Indian homes, it would be fair to tell you that I bought Google's mesh router system for my personal use. Since this product was bought, it would be fair to tell you my opinion rather than writing an official review. I moved into a new home recently and I've always faced the issue of Wi-Fi coverage in my home. Indian homes are usually made of concrete thick walls that prevent the Wi-Fi signal from reaching all corners of the house. I recently got myself a gigabit connection and I needed a Wi-Fi system that would reach the far end of my house. The home I'm currently living in is 2,100 square feet and required a mesh router setup. © Google Today, traditional routers cannot deliver enough coverage and range extenders are often not reliable. Mesh routers are now taking over and I invested in getting myself a three-pack Google Wi-Fi. It costs less than Netgear's Orbi and delivers an experience that you would expect from a mesh router. After using Google's Wifi, I don't think I'll ever switch to a traditional Wifi again. It's Easy To Setup © MensXP Setting up the Google Wifi was probably the easiest thing we've encountered and it was even easier to set up the access points. Assuming you already have an internet connection, you can connect one of the Google Wifi points to your modem/router with an ethernet cable and it will automatically start broadcasting. You will need to download the free Google Wifi app on your iPhone or Android device to proceed further. The App will now let you configure your Wi-Fi network by simply scanning the QR code at the bottom of the Wifi point. You can then name your network and set a password. Once you are done with the procedure you can simply repeat the process of scanning the QR Code for installing additional points. It literally takes seconds for the Google Wifi to recognise additional Wifi Points. © MensXP Now that you're all set-up, you can use the Google Wifi app for additional features such as setting up a guest Wi-fi, test speeds, track the mesh network's health or monitor your network in general. The app has an inbuilt speed testing feature which means you don't need to use third-party apps to test your speed. How Did It Perform © Google Since I have a gigabit internet connection in my home, Google Wifi was able to optimise speed to the maximum even when we were far away from the nearest WiFi point. We were able to stream 4K movies on Netflix in three separate rooms at the same time without facing any buffer period. It was able to automatically prioritise traffic and distribute crucial bandwidth without any issues. Google Wifi is all about providing you with coverage, the speed of your internet depends on your plan or your ISP. Here is a screenshot of the speed I was getting 20 feet away from the nearest Google Wifi point: © MensXP Why Google Should Get It To India Currently, Google does not sell 'Google Wifi' in India officially as I purchased mine from the United States during my travels. The Google Wifi is reasonably priced and is the only affordable option when taking its competition into consideration. Google offers more units, is easy to setup and performs well. It's everything the Indian market and homes needs and with Google Home now available in India, it would be a perfect addition to the ecosystem. Indian homes, in general, have thicker walls than the west and in order to combat the problem of connectivity, Google Wifi is the only affordable answer right now.
  22. ISRO's workhorse, PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) has once again proven why it is among the most sought launch vehicles in the industry. Codenamed the C42 launch, the rocket has successfully placed two British satellites in their respective orbits. The two satellites belong to Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL) and were placed in orbit after 17.5 minutes of lift-off. Right now, the NovaSAR and S1-4 are orbiting around the planet in a sun-synchronous orbit, at a height of 583kms. © ISRO The NovaSAR is an S-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar satellite intended for forest mapping, land use & ice cover monitoring, flood & disaster monitoring. The S1-4 is a high-resolution Optical Earth Observation Satellite, used for surveying resources, environment monitoring, urban management and for the disaster monitoring. This mission marks the 44th launch for the PSLV rocket system. As of now, the vehicle has launched 51 Indian satellites and 237 for customers from 28 countries. Following the successful launch, ISRO plans to launch eight missions carrying 10 satellites in six months.

Sources close to the launch have said that the two UK satellites shall bring in more than Rs 200 Crore. The organisation is aiming a total of Rs 980 crore in revenue via commercial launches by 2020. This isn't the first time India has launched satellites for the British. Back in 2015, the PSLV-C28 mission carried five satellites that were also built by SSTL. ISRO's PSLV has a very good track record in terms of cost and reliability, it currently carries a 94 per cent rating, failing only thrice. © ISRO The PSLV was first tested in 1993 and has been at the front-line of ISRO's operations ever since. It is capable of carrying up to 3,800kg of payload to Low Earth Orbit and consists of four stages. © ISRO ISRO has lined 19 missions till March 2019, informed Dr. Kailasavadivoo Sivan, chairperson of the ISRO. The organisation is also working on sending its first manned space mission by 2022, dubbed the Gaganyaan, it will put India in the same league as countries like the US, Russia, and China.
  23. Who doesn't like a good ol' classic like '8 Mile?' Yeah, it's a classic. If you disagree with me we can take the fight outside! Just like that, there are a lot of Hollywood movies which have used music videos to up the interest quotient in their movies. Getting a big name to do the title song for your movie will all but guarantee the people watch it, right? If only it were so. There have been many misses in this regard but for today, we're only going to focus on the ones that worked. These music videos didn't just generate interest in the movies they were associated with, they became superhits on their own. Again, I'm digressing. The only thing we're interested in here is how good these music videos are at making people go and watch the movie they are associated with. It's a list based purely on how a song makes you feel, so bear with me for a bit. You might not agree with my choices, but before you tear into me in the comments, listen to the songs. They might just change your mind. Also, use good headphones/earphones please. Using crap listening devices will doing an injustice to these songs… 1. '8 Mile' – Lose Yourself Every 13-year-old kid who was able to convince his/her parents to get them this cassette when it came out is a legend! But, back then, little did we know that there was a music video and an entire movie we could watch too. Yeah, the internet wasn't what it is today. Forget exams, the only thing that mattered was memorising the lyrics. The clocks run out. Times out. Over. Blao! I could rap the whole thing at one point. No lies! Could you? Anyway, the fact remains that Eminem is a Rap God and if you haven't watched '8 Mile' yet, there's no better time than now! If you have, I don't need to convince you to watch it again! 2. 'Dangerous Minds' – Gangsta's Paradise Everyone has heard this song. You haven't? Of course, you have! Just give it a listen: But, did you know that it was originally made for the movie 'Dangerous Minds?' Not many people do. Why? The movie wasn't the greatest. Even Michelle Pfeiffer couldn't make it work. The song, on the other hand, broke all sorts of records and even won Coolio a Grammy. Still, the movie is pretty bad. It's the only movie on this list I'd not recommend you giving a watch! 3. 'Black Panther' – Pray For Me There's no denying two things here. This is the coolest looking video on this list and 'Black Panther' is the highest earning movie on this list. I don't even need to brag about this one. The music video will make you appreciate it on its own. So, instead of writing, I'm just gonna watch the video with all of you: 4. 'Ghostbusters' – Ghostbusters It took a lot of effort to convince myself to start writing again. The only thing I want to do right now, is watch 'Black Panther.' But, we all have jobs and sometimes they suck. Just kidding, I love my job. Anyway, on to Ghostbusters. First, I'm not talking about the movie that released in 2016. I'm talking about the original. Still not clear? This should help: Before you comment on the video, bear in mind that it was released in 1984. I'd say it's pretty revolutionary when you take that into account. Did Ray Parker Jr. know his song was going to become one of the most easily recognisable songs in history? No. Does he mind? Hell no! After this one, all I can say is 'Ghostbusting makes me feel good!' 5. 'Rocky III' – Eye Of The Tiger Let's face it. By the time 'Rocky II' was over, people weren't expecting too much from 'Rocky III'. Why? He's defeated Creed. He's a champion. It's only downhill from there. Or so we thought. They found a way to make Rocky the underdog once more. He was past his prime and facing a hungry new-comer. But, what sealed it for the movie has got to be the song. The song that is part of everyone's gym playlist. It's not a part of yours? It has to be. Add it now! Everyone wants a ripped body like young Sylvester Stallone. Don't fool yourself! You do too! This song is the only way to get it! 6. 'Lego Movie' – Everything Is Awesome The first time I heard this song, it blew my mind. The 'Lego Movie' blew my mind. It was so much better than expected. Part of it has to do with the awesome theme song. When Batman approves! You better get on board! I'm so pumped right now it's not funny! Everything is awesome! Be careful with this one. It can make even the crappiest of days feel awesome. 7. 'Men In Black II' – Nod Ya Head Okay, this is a personal favourite. Not sure if everyone will agree. For me, Will Smith is an icon. I don't care what you have to say about him or his kids. For me, he will always be the kid from 'The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air' who became a Hollywood superstar! He deserves my respect and yours too. I give him props for sticking to his rap career even after becoming a superstar. Check out his charisma: His rap career did come full circle when he did the theme song for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Congratulations Will. But, I'll still remember him for this one. The first 'Men In Black' theme song was pretty cool too. But, this one is just better. Why? It makes me want to watch all 3 movies. Yeah, you heard me right, all 3 movies! 8. 'Saturday Night Fever' – Stayin' Alive The last music video on this list is here for just one reason, and that is to show the world how far a young John Travolta can take anything. Just look at the beautiful man: This wasn't supposed to be the last video on the list but screw it. I have to go rewatch all of John Travolta's work now. The man is a legend. If I keep going this will become a John Travolta appreciation post. So, I'm out. Figure out which of these movies you're going to watch first. Have a great day!
  24. The Razer Phone has been off to an amazing start since its launch. The brand has always been known for its gaming rigs and accessories, and with the Razer Phone, the company has carved out a niche for itself. Following the Razer's approach to mobile gaming, many other companies like ASUS and Xiaomi have also started focusing on gaming phones. In a recent earnings report, Razer confirmed that the Razer Phone 2 was in production. The Razer Phone was launched last year, and a new successor is expected to be just around the corner. It's become very normal for us to see a plethora of leaks and reports before every launch, same is the case with Razer. While there hasn't been any information on the new design, we do know a few of the specifications that the phone would boast. © Razer According to AnTuTu, a benchmarking app, the phone has a 5.7 inch Sharp IGZO LCD screen with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. The phone will also have a 120Hz refresh rate thanks to Qualcomm's Q Sync display technology. The phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset along with 8GB RAM and a humungous 512GB internal storage. The phone has also been spotted on another benchmarking app, Geekbench, that confirms the phone will be having a Snapdragon 845 chipset and 8GB RAM. The listing also revealed the phone will be running on Android 8.1 Oreo. One thing is sure, the phone will receive the Android 9 Pie update soon after its launch, or the company could surprise us by shipping it out of the box. © YouTube The phone is expected to have an 8-megapixel selfie camera and 12-megapixel dual rear shooters with dual-tone flash and wide-angle lens. There have been rumours floating around suggesting there could be a major design change and the company's Chroma LED lighting system will be incorporated. A few months back Min-Liang-Tan, the CEO of Razer had confirmed that the brand is working on bringing the phone to India. However, we haven't seen any progress there yet. The phone was earlier alleged to be launched at IFA Berlin, but that did not materialize, we expect it to launch in November though.
  25. It was almost a decade ago that the world of avid sitcom hoggers was gifted by the marvel that came to be known as 'The Big Bang Theory' which is much more than just a sci-fi based sitcom. Now with the twelfth, and reportedly also the final season all set to hit the screens in another 28 days, 677 hours, 40620 minutes and 2437200 seconds, we can't seem to come to terms with the impending 'black hole' that would leave on our list of 'beloved series that shouldn't ever come to an end'. © Facebook The show has gifted its audience with a lot besides the obvious dibs at geekiness and a healthy scoop of nerd references we all love to pull off during our times of need. The show has turned into a life-coach of sorts over the years and there is just so much one could take away from it. © Facebook The news has pushed us to reminisce about all the golden decrees that the show has gifted the mankind with and here are 5 of the best ones that are fit to be accepted and applied by anybody, in any given situation. 1. Choose Friends Who See The Crazy In You & Still Decide to Stick Around via GIPHY The show is an epitome of how a true friend chooses to stay beside you even when he/she sees how messed up you can be in the head. Despite the disagreements you have, the “quirks” that come along with your OCD and even the most bizarre agreements and arguments you come up with to have things your way, a true friend would always choose to stick by your side. 2. It's Okay To Flaunt The Geek In You & To Top That Off With Introversion via GIPHY If we had to choose that one trope that proudly shoulders the X-factor of this show, it has to be its way of showing how the nerd culture can be cool as well. The show marvellously utilizes the academic jargon and geek humour to dismantle popular beliefs around geeks and introverts which makes them seem like social misfits when in reality their world is too fun with new theories to discover and greater inventions to be made. 3. There Is Always Some Room For Love & You Must Trust To Find It In The Most Awkward Places via GIPHY Another aspect of the show that's highly relatable is the possibility of finding love in our lives. The lead characters in the sitcom comprises of two physicists, an aerospace engineer and an astrophysicist along with an actress-cum-waitress, so it's only expected that love and relationships wouldn't top their priority list but their heart begs to differ. Though for them, love comes as an alien concept requiring different commitments and emotional explorations, we have seen the men face their demons and (struggle to) find love. 4. Honesty Is The Best Policy & You Mustn't Shy Away From Being Blunt With It via GIPHY With the kind of personalities each characters possesses it is only expected to witness a clash of beliefs that spur exceedingly mind-blowing, well backed up yet daft arguments on anything and everything. Sheldon is known to have a knack for the spoken word and he can be exceptionally brutal with his honesty during arguments and discussions that often leads to cathartic interludes for the audience. 5. It's Okay To Not Win At Everything Or Live Up To Popular Demands/Expectations Every character in the story comes with its sets of shortcomings that are seen as “flaws” by an ever judgemental society but thankfully none of the characters in the show are sorry about it. via GIPHY Be it Sheldon with his orderliness and OCD, Leonard with agitations and eccentricities, Raj with his social anxiety and selective muteness, Howard with his creepy overtures or Penny with her academic and professional lacking, every character displays the ideal mix of Yin and Yang in the plot. Every character brings to the fore the many, unexplored layers of an individual which can be best explained by the fact that while all the guys in the story maybe be great academically, yet Penny manages to teach them a lot about life that they are unaware of. via GIPHY It would be such a low to not have the guys back on the screens for a new season after this, but here's hoping for all the closures and a series of memorable anecdotes to take away from the final run of the upcoming 24 episodes in the final season.
