  1. Given 'positive engagement & response of the company, the Authority has decided to unban PUBG'
  2. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) in a written request has asked the Union Minister for Electronics, Information Technology and Communication, Ravi Shankar Prasad, to prevent Huawei and ZTE from participating in 5G rollout in India. The letter cites concerns for national security and other crimes the two companies have been accused of, such as spying, conspiracy, money laundering, bank and wire fraud. © Reuters "We are sure that our above request will be considered by you and necessary decision will be taken to protect not only the security of the country but also the privacy of the people of India through data and as such both Huawei and ZTE Corporation will not be allowed to participate in 5G network rollout in India," CAIT said in the letter to Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. The United Kingdom has already started working on proposals to prevent the installation of new Huawei equipment in the next six months and phase out any of the already existing hardware. Huawei and other Chinese companies have already been banned from doing business with U.S. companies and U.S. intelligence officials cited Huaweiâs close ties with the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) and its military. ZTE, along with Huawei, has been classified as a âthreat to national securityâ by the Federal Communications Commission. India has been on the offensive this past week and has already banned 59 apps in the country that were found storing data outside of the country. Apps like TikTok, WeChat, CamScanner and others were banned by the Indian Government last week. © Reuters US has been accusing Huawei, saying their equipment could be used by China for spying on individuals, corporation and government agencies. The company has also been accused of facilitating intellectual property theft and cyber espionage that has been integrated into their equipment. If true, Huaweiâs equipment could give China an advantage for cyber-warfare thanks to all the data and sensitive information the company could be collecting. Do you agree with CAITâs request for banning Huaweiâs 5G equipment in India? Let us know in the comments what you think about CAITâs request. View the full article
  3. The Indian government's decision to ban the use of 59 Chinese apps in India is still making headlines across the globe. This is indeed a huge and unprecedented move by our government that is going to do a great deal of damage to TikTok, in particular. TikTok has a huge user-base in India with millions of daily active users. And since the app is completely unusable right now, TikTok's parent company is facing a huge loss of up to $6 billion. The same has been confirmed by China's state-run media The Global Times. Here, check it out - The loss of Chinese internet company ByteDance â mother company of Tik Tok â could be as high as $6 billion after Indian government banned 59 Chinese apps including Tik Tok, following deadly border clash between Indian and Chinese troops last month: source pic.twitter.com/wGvnqVO7mR â Global Times (@globaltimesnews) July 1, 2020 Bytedance could lose up to Rs 45 thousand crore given now that the app has been taken down from both the Google Play Store as well as the App Store. The report further noted that TikTok was downloaded 112 million times in May alone, a lot of those downloads came from India. Now, you can imagine the extent of damage we're talking about. Global Times also noted that the move has dealt a severe blow to the confidence of Chinese investors and traders. Not to mention, this decision comes just as China is yet to fully recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. For safety, security, defence, sovereignty & integrity of India and to protect data & privacy of people of India the Government has banned 59 mobile apps. Jai Hind! ð®ð³ â Ravi Shankar Prasad (@rsprasad) June 29, 2020 As far as India is concerned, we already have a ton of TikTok alternatives on the market. From Mitron to Chingari, we already have a lot of apps up and running. It's time for Indian developers to step in and come up with more innovative apps. View the full article
  4. The US federal court placed a temporary restraining order on Gordon Pedersen to stop him from marketing "ingestible silver" as protection against coronavirus
  5. According to a report, the singer has sued the software and technology firms behind Clothes Forever - Styling Game.
  6. No thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic that the world is going through, we have seen a number of professions and individuals adapt to the situation and manage to carry on with their work. But a South Korean real estate development company, has taken things to a whole new level. © Twitter/Yonhap With the world staring at a global recession and the processes of new recruitments almost coming to a freeze the world over, Ansan Urban Development Corp, a South Korean real estate development company near Seoul, perhaps showed the way to businesses all over the world how exams and recruitments will look like, at least, for the foreseeable future. The job applicants took a written exam at a football stadium, while seated in the open. In a statement to South Korean daily, the Korea Herald, Ansan stated that the move follows the companyâs decision to help to stop the spread of the novel Coronavirus, to the best of their abilities. © Twitter/Yonhap South Korea, for those who are unaware, was one of the first countries after China where COVID-19 broke out, and where the spread of the contagion was alarmingly fast. However, thanks to strict lockdown, testing and social distancing measures, the number of people actually infected with the disease was significantly less. © Reuters As of writing this article, the number of people in South Korea who were infected by the virus, is at 10,284, with 186 deaths, and over 6,598 people who have recovered. Thanks to the timely measures taken by the civic bodies and the residents of the country, South Korea is one of the very few countries in Asia, which has managed to âflatten the curveâ, so to speak, in a spectacular manner. © Reuters However, conducting tests and exams out in the open is certainly not a new concept, at least in India. Here we have seen a number of recruitment and entrance exams being conducted in an open field, especially by local police authorities and the military, where these exams often tested the physical capabilities of the applicants. With that being said, there have been instances where exams have been conducted in a similar manner to combat cheating. © ANI Now, assuming that the football pitch we see in the photos is a regular, league-sized pitch, each applicant is seated at a distance of about 5.5 metres, significantly more than the distance that is recommended for acceptable social distancing norms. This actually is a brilliant way to conduct exams that are sensitive to yearly schedules. © Twitter/Yonhap We wonder if we will see this becoming the norm especially for the final semester and final terms exams across the world. Although we feel for the students who were actually hoping to avoid their exams this year, and had found rather ingenious ways to deal with homework and exams during the pandemic, we still believe that this actually is a very plausible way to resume things. Whether or not this happens, we have to say that in the midst of everything that has been happening around the world, an incident like this where an attempt is made to bring back the regularity of everyday life, is a rather welcome sight.

  7. In a leaked document, Tik Tok was found instructing moderators to prevent "poor" users with video shots in âslumsâ or âdilapidated housingâ to be promoted in the âFor Youâ section on the popular social media app. The moderators were also asked not to promote videos of people with âugly facial looksâ according to a report by The Intercept. A spokesperson of the social media app confirmed to the publication that these guidelines were indeed in place as they were âan early blunt attempt at preventing bullyingâ and are no longer used.

  8. With cases of Coronavirus increasing with each passing day, one of the simplest yet life-saving universal message, which governments and countries are sending out to their citizens is - to wash hands. If you want to stay safe, wash your hands as frequently as possible and follow it with a hand sanitizer. Probably use a hand sanitizer more than that perfume you bought for summers. Be it public places, your social media feed or even the caller tune of your mobile phone; every form of media is being used to spread the message of cleanliness and the importance of washing hands and using a sanitizer, to avoid coming in contact with any virus or germs. In India, almost every office now has huge bottles of hand sanitizers at different spots for people to use. © Reuters Now, what more can you possibly do? I mean, you definitely can't walk around with a hand sanitizer asking every person to use it? But, according to this Saudi Arabian company, you can become one and just roam around the office. No matter how bizarre it sounds, but an oil company in Saudi Arabia called Aramco made a worker actually do that and are now being criticised on social media for their 'racist' behaviour. In the pictures shared on social media, a migrant worker was wearing a face mask and dressed up as a 'human hand-sanitizer' and walking up to the office staff so they can use it. These pictures and his disheartening expression is enough to figure out that no one is enjoying this 'promotional and fun act'. طبÙÙØ© Ø®ÙÙجÙØ© اÙداء Ù٠أراÙÙÙ pic.twitter.com/FpWsUNw7mE â Ùشا٠ÙÙÙÙ (@HishamFageeh) March 10, 2020 Although the place is not mentioned, people are guessing (through the pictures) this incident took place in the company's Dhahran office. People on social media are outraged over this subtle racism the company tried to pull in the wake of Coronavirus. Many even called it 'modern-day slavery'. Shocking contempt for human dignity in #SaudiArabiaâs oil company @Saudi_Aramco.

  9. Yes, you read that right. A UK-based medical research centre has taken upon itself to find a cure for the deadly Coronavirus that is plaguing the entire planet, currently, and has even put life to a halt in several countries. © Reuters According to a report, the Queen Mary BioEnterprises Innovation Centre in London is now looking for around 24 healthy candidates who are willing to be injected with 0C43 and 229E strains of the virus. These will cause minor respiratory problems which will not be as deadly at the Corona but similar in nature, allowing them to study the subject in detail. © Reuters The volunteers will be kept in isolation for a period of 2 weeks, have no physical contact with the world, not exercise and even follow a restricted prescribed diet. The tests, which they will undergo, include taking their nasal swabs and blood tests. However before this experiment can be carried out, the research centre needs official permission from the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency to do anything in this department. © Reuters A lot of pharma companies are undertaking this initiative which will, obviously, make them rich but might also help humanity at large. Over 3600 people have succumbed to the deadly virus already. If given a chance, would you volunteer for 3500 Pounds which is around Rs 3,32741? View the full article
  10. Ever since OnePlus came to existence, the whole ethos of the company was to offer flagship-level smartphones at an attractive price. However, with the recent OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro, we've seen the company divulge into making more premium smartphones that also come with an increased price tag. However, the Chinese company may change that with a mid-range smartphone next year. A mid-range smartphone will not only let OnePlus keep the prices down, but it will also expand its portfolio and bring the company back to its roots. © 91Mobiles and OnLeaks OnePlus smartphones are highly successful in India and western markets; however, with rising prices, OnePlus has not been able to offer a smartphone in the mid-range segment. A new leak via 91mobiles and @OnLeaks suggests that the OnePlus 8 Lite will be the answer to all of the company's problems. The rumoured smartphone is said to come with a flat punch-hole display similar to the Galaxy S10 and without a notch. The display size is rumoured to be 6.4-inches or 6.5-inches and the fingerprint sensor will be under the display like the OnePlus 7 and 7T series. The camera sensors are also going to get a slight update as it will come with a dual primary camera setup and an additional Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors for better 3D photography and AR features. © 91Mobiles and OnLeaks The most interesting part of the smartphone will be its specifications. Normally, every OnePlus smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's latest flagship chipset. However, the recently announced Snapdragon 865 chipset comes with a 5G X55 modem which will eventually drive up the cost. The Snapdragon 865 chipset does not come with a 4G modem which means OEMs like OnePlus will have no choice but to use the X55 modem or use an alternative chipset. It could be possible we might see the OnePlus 8 Lite using a different chipset to control the price of the smartphone. We can expect it to be powered by Snapdragon 765 SoC or some other chipset. We should know more about the mid-range smartphone closer to its launch. However, if rumours turn out to be true, OnePlus will return to its roots of offering the smartphone at an even more affordable price. For now, we would advise you to take the above information with a pinch of salt as it is based on leaks and rumour. Source: 91Mobiles View the full article
  11. They say nothing can stop you from chasing your dreams, but we disagree.

  12. If you are a wrestling fan who's been following the matches and performances of some of the biggest names of the industry such as The Undertaker, The Rock and John Cena, you would have discovered lately that the kind of shows the World Wrestling Entertainment is producing lack the oomph they had maybe 10-20 years ago. The storylines are weak, the promotions aren't good enough and to be honest, there isn't as much wrestling involved in the company that used to thrive on it once. Seth Rollins did his finisher 10 times in this clip. 10 TIMES! And after every single one, the boos got louder. It's crazy but no one wanted him to win. Worst ending EVER. Horrible booking by @WWE @VinceMcMahon @WWEBrayWyatt #HIAC pic.twitter.com/pWRyHWOCoa — Jason (@RollingLoudVet) October 7, 2019 It is because of this reason that despite having big pay-per-views and a roster loaded with some of the most familiar faces in the wrestling world, the fans of the show are slowly moving away from the industry-giant and towards smaller but fresher brands. One of the upcoming companies in terms of having the biggest impact recently is the All Elite Wrestling or the AEW, that has not only managed to draw in former WWE superstars like Chris Jericho and Dean Amdrose but also their former commentators like Jim Ross. Chris Jericho is killing it tonight ð#AEW #AEWDynamite pic.twitter.com/utycbJqW5F — Get The Tables (@GetDaTables) October 24, 2019 With the financial backing of Pakistani-American billionaire Shahid “Shad” Khan and a television contract with one of the biggest networks in the US in the TNT, the AEW looks like it is here to stay. Under such circumstances, the 9x WWE Champion, Randy Orton threatened to leave the company and go join AEW after the WWE delayed in renewing the star's contract extension. View this post on Instagram tick tock tick tock @scottdawsonwwe @dashwilderwwe @thislukeharper @riddickmoss @americannightmarecody @chrisjerichofozzy @iameliaswwe A post shared by Randy Orton (@randyorton) on Oct 20, 2019 at 11:37pm PDT “Tick Tock Tick Tock [sic]” read the post, presumably Orton counting the number of days before he jumps ship. His friend and the current AEW Champion Chris Jericho - who's also tagged in the post, replied by saying “Send in a tape and some pix and I'll see what I Can do....” Whether it is Orton's cheeky way to getting a major raise ahead of his contract renewal with the WWE or does he actually want to leave the company and move on to AEW is still a mystery which will only be revealed in the coming weeks. However, the fact that a single man can throw his weight around the company and make Vince McMahon actually listen to his qualms says a lot about the current situation of the brand.
  13. Do you have a “kind and friendly” face? If yes, you have a chance of getting instantly famous and earning around Rs 92 lakh. Wait, don't get all excited yet! It can happen only if you are cool about being the face of a new “humanoid robot”. Imagine your friend calling and telling you that she saw you in London while you were sitting here in New Delhi, drinking bad filter coffee in the office. Well, according to news reports, a British engineering and manufacturing firm known as Geomiq will make you richer only if you are interested in becoming the face of thousands of mass-produced "state-of-the-art humanoid” that is currently working along with an unnamed company. © Reuters In a blog post about the project, Geomiq say, "This will entail the selected person's face being reproduced on potentially thousands of versions of the robots worldwide." The manufacturers have been working on the design from the past five years and the robots will be a companion for senior citizens. Isn't that brilliant? The news reports suggest that the unnamed company, behind the manufacturing of robots, has been privately funded by many independent VCs and a leading fund based out of Shanghai. © Reuters According to the blog post shared by Geomiq, the robot will act as a virtual friend for elderly people. Their manufacturing, suggested the blog, will begin from next year. Besides, they are currently making therapy robots for senior citizens and army veterans to make them feel less lonely. While you're getting all excited about the offer, what if there is a breach of confidentiality and the data is taken by *** robot makers? We see uncountable data thefts daily, and this isn't something that sounds impossible.
  14. Gaming as an industry is one of the fastest growing markets and it seems like big tech giants like Apple are also part of the phenomenon. Gaming companies like Sony and Microsoft have generally been known as the two giants in gaming, thanks to their consoles and exclusive games. However, Apple is also now amongst the top five publicly traded gaming entities. © Epic Games According to a report by Newzoo, Apple is amongst the top five companies that contribute to the gaming industry. Apple may not cater to hardcore gamers like Sony and Microsoft, however, the company has amassed a firm position thanks to casual gamers on iPhones. Apple is just behind Tencent, Sony, Microsoft and Activision Blizzard. The report adds that the top 35 public gaming companies have generated almost $114 billion in 2018 as the top five have generated 43% of the collective revenue. © YouTube Apple has managed to rake in $2.09 billion just from gaming in the first quarter of 2018 and the number is expected to rise this year thanks to its upcoming Apple Arcade service. Newzoo estimates Apple earned $9.453 billion from games during 2018. Previously, Apple has relied on microtransactions from games to generate a high income; however the company is now moving forward with a subscription service that will offer exclusive games in order to depend less on the microtransactions business model. © Pexels The report also said that mobile gaming is the largest segment in the mobile industry and expects more PC gamers to switch in 2019.

  15. iTunes is regarded as one of the most iconic music applications, that has been a part of Apple's ecosystem for 18 years. It was initially used to manage music for Apple's iPod and iPhone products and later became a comprehensive store for selling music, movies and TV shows, that was later expanded to devices such as the iPad and Apple TV. However, reports are now suggesting that the Cupertino giant is now going to bid goodbye to the iconic application and replace it with existing applications that support subscription services. © Apple Bloomberg reports that Apple is expected to announce three separate apps for music, TV and podcasts that will basically replace the iTunes store. The move is said to come to streamline content on separate platforms. Apple has already announced a new Apple TV+ service and it seems like it may be the reason for the shutting down of iTunes. The move is expected to be announced tonight at Apple's annual WWDC event. Currently, the iTunes application is only available on MacBooks and iMacs as iPhones and iPads already offer separate applications for TV, Music and Podcast. By streamlining these apps, Apple will become a multifaceted service provider as well. © Apple Due to this report, Apple users have already responded with concerns on Twitter. However, Apple has assured that music, movies and TV shows that have already been purchased by users from iTunes will still be available on the Music app with an Apple Music subscription. Users who have redeemed iTunes gift cards will also be credited to the Apple ID balance. This balance can be later used on the App Store, upgrade iCloud storage or for buying one of the subscription services from Apple. Source: Bloomberg
  16. In probably the weirdest way, a teenager tried to land a job at Apple in the most unconventional manner as if it worked as it does in movies. Normally, if you want to work at a tech giant like Apple, you would first educate yourself, get the required degree and apply for a job. However, this teenager from Australia had something else in mind. © Unsplash A teenager pleaded guilty to hacking Apple and admitted that he had hoped to land a job at Apple. The Cupertino Giant had heard that the company hired somebody from Europe who had done something similar and assumed that a job would be offered when he was discovered. Instead, he got arrested for his actions. © Reuters The teenager won't be going to prison for his action instead he is on a $500 AUD bond for nine months. The culprit was 13 when he started the hacks and hopes to study criminology and digital security at university. “He is clearly someone who is a gifted individual when it comes to information technology,” the judge said, according to ABC, “that being said, those who have this advantage of being gifted doesn't give them the right to abuse that gift.” © Flickr/TwitterBrian Klug Apple has not commented on the incident as of now and instead stressed that its staff should "vigilantly protect” internal networks and content the hacks. Luckily, no personal data was stolen or exposed due to this hack and it seems like the teenager will now have to work hard and earn a job just like everybody else. Source: ABC
  17. It has been a harrowing week for Chinese company Huawei since it was included in the entity list by the US Government. This basically means that American companies cannot do business with the Chinese tech giant without prior approval from the Government. In the wake of this decision, companies like Qualcomm, Intel, ARM, Google have all revoked access for licenses and acquiring of components. Huawei is the world's second largest smartphone company in the world and with losing access from American companies for key components and licenses, it is essentially a death sentence for the company. Here's a list of companies that won't be doing any business with Huawei at least until things are resolved: ARM © ARM ARM is by far the biggest blow to the Chinese company as the company severed ties as of yesterday. Huawei can build its own operating system and acquire other components from non-American companies; however, without a license from ARM, Huawei cannot manufacture their own chipsets. ARM basically design the chips and then license them out to companies for manufacturing. Their designs are used on Laptops, Smartphones, IoT products and wearables. These designs are used by companies like Qualcomm, Apple, Samsung and previously Huawei. HiSilicon, Huawei's SoC subsidiary has been using ARM-based chipsets for a while and losing access to the license essentially means that Huawei cannot make processors. Since the company has also lost access to Qualcomm, Huawei will not be able to deliver a smartphone. Having said that, there are other alternatives such as sourcing chipsets from non-American companies such as MediaTek and Samsung. Qualcomm and Intel © BCCL Qualcomm and Intel both provide components to Huawei that essentially powered various products such as laptops and mobile phones. Intel provides server chips and processor for Huawei's laptop line which essentially renders future Huawei laptops useless. Qualcomm, on the other hand, provides modems and other processors that power other products. Since Huawei makes its own chipsets, Qualcomm's impact was less prominent yet still crucial. Even though Huawei has been stockpiling chipsets for future use, sooner or later the company will run out unless the conflict is resolved by then. Broadcom and Xilinx have also announced they are suspending sales of products to Huawei as well. Western Digital and Micron Technology Like any other smartphone, it needs memory to store data and Huawei smartphones used Western Digital and Micron Technology as their suppliers. Micron Technology makes memory chips that are used in smartphones. As of now, the company has also revoked access to the Chinese company. Huawei will not be able to source storage chips from American companies as of now; however, it can source similar components from Samsung. Android © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Google has also revoked Huawei's Android license as a move to be compliant with the US Government's ban. The company will be able to provide updates for current Huawei smartphones for the next three months but it doesn't help the situation. Huawei is already working on its own operating system based on Google's AOSP (Android Open Source Project), platform. How it will work depends on the final build and whether it will be rolled out globally. Huawei has said that the new operating system will be compatible with Android apps and is scheduled for release later this fall. SD Association © SD Association The latest organisation to boot Huawei is the SD association which means Huawei is no longer allowed to make any products with SD or microSD slots. This will affect Huawei's smartphone and laptop lines as the SD Association develops and authorises the use of standards for SD storage. The list on the organisation's website silently removed Huawei's name from the list. Suspensions of Orders Vodafone, the world's largest mobile operator has suspended the sale of Huawei's Mate 20X (5G) on its website for the time. The smartphone was listed on Vodafone's UK website and the suspension could possibly extend to other regions as well. Even the Microsoft store pulled Huawei's MateBook X Pro's listing from its website. In fact, a basic search for any Huawei product on Microsoft's digital store comes up with no results.
  18. Huawei was cut access to do business with American companies like Google, Qualcomm, Intel and other companies that collaborate with the Chinese company. The ban comes as a part of U.S. President's executive order amidst trade battles between the two countries. Having said that, according to Huawei, the company already has contingency plans in place to deal with the ban and the company's founder Ren Zhengfei has downplayed the impact it will have on the Chinese company. Supporting #Huawei does not necessarily mean you should buy a #Huawei smartphone. My family members use #Apple for a very long long time: Ren Zhengfei, founder of China's Huawei Technologies (Photo: Chen Qingqing/GT) pic.twitter.com/5rcrHJx3KR — Global Times (@globaltimesnews) May 21, 2019 Speaking to Chinese newspaper, the Global Times, Ren said that “In such a critical moment, I'm grateful to US companies, as they've contributed a lot to Huawei's development and showed their conscientiousness on the matter,” Ren says. “As far as I know, US companies have been making efforts to persuade the US government to let them cooperate with Huawei ... We always need US-developed chipsets, and we can't exclude American products with a narrow mind.” © Reuters On Saturday, Huawei tweeted “Lose-lose, Washington's decision to force U.S. companies to stop doing business with tech giant Huawei creates losers on both sides.” Ren also went on to say that trade restriction would not affect Huawei's 5G rollout and in fact, it would be detrimental for the US as other companies would not be able to catch up with Huawei's technology. "The current practice of US politicians underestimates our strength," Ren Zhengfei said, according to the transcripts from the interview. It seems like Huawei will remain unaffected for the time being even though the ban has been lifted temporarily for three months. The US Commerce Department temporarily lifted the ban on American businesses collaborating with Huawei so that software updates can continue on Huawei phones. The three-month lifting of the ban should give Huawei time to at least fight the ban and put forward its case to be removed from the Entity List. The US government currently deems the brand to be a threat to national security due to the government's claim of spying and stealing valuable information from American companies. Google blocked Huawei's access to its Android license on Sunday in compliance with President Trump's Executive order. Other companies like Qualcomm and Intel have also temporarily stopped business with the Chinese company until the ban has been lifted. The loss to Google's Android License means that future Huawei phones will not be able to sell devices running Google's proprietary services such as the Play Store, Youtube and other Google apps. However, Huawei says that the company has already built an alternative OS and is stockpiling hardware to tackle the current issue at hand. Source: Global Times
  19. Starting up a business in a field that is already dominated by big shots is not an easy task. You need to have a unique strategy and products in order to stand out from the crowd. Big companies generally tend to be the number one barrier for new entrants but a wristwatch company from India is giving competition to big shots like Titan, Citizen and even international brands like Casio. © Tsar Watches Ever since e-commerce websites emerged in India, it has opened up doors for other small companies like Tsar Watches to get noticed. You could have a unique product but you still need to compete, especially since everything is now online. You sometimes have to resort to tactics that your competition may not be using, and that's exactly what Tsar Watches had in mind. © Tsar Watches Abdul Kadir Bhandari and friends Haider Ali Lashkar and Abbas Akbari founded Tsar Watches in September 2015. Being ardent watch collectors, they came up with the idea and concept of wooden watches, which nobody else was doing at the time in India. Your first thought would be that wooden watches are detrimental to the environment, however, the founders wanted to serve fashion and luxury with a sustainable and an eco-friendly product. Since the watches are made out of wood, the founders already made a conscious effort to contribute towards the environment. For each watch the company sells, the founders plant a tree. So far, the company has been responsible for planting 1500 trees and plan to keep contributing. If you want to know more about their initiative, you can read more about it here. So What's The Secret to Tsar Watches' Success? In order to stand out from the crowd, Tsar Watches had to implement a strategy that would get the company the eyeballs it needed. Being an online-only company, Tsar Watches had to break through the crowded space with smart online marketing strategy. Tsar Watches today sell their products to a worldwide audience, which did not happen by accident. Speaking to Abdul about it he said, “We extensively used Google Primer to get noticed by customers in India and all over the world and create the demand we needed” © Google Google Primer is a tool by the search engine giant that enables businesses to digitise and grow without being location agnostic. The company was also able to expose their online ads for the intended target audience. Being a Google tool, the tool used by Tsar Watches didn't only work exclusively on Google platforms, the exposure of the brand extended to social media platforms and e-commerce websites as well. Abdul spends at least an hour every day to learn something new and enhance his marketing approach to get the desired outcome. The beauty of Google Primer is that it is absolutely free. You can find it on Google Play Store and it even works offline. The app offers lessons on business planning, sales, digital advertising, social media marketing, SEO tactics, branding and analytics. The app also enables its users to learn and apply strategies for online businesses in under five minutes, but one can always spend more time to learn new tactics. Google Primer is available in Hindi, Telugu, English, Bahasa and other languages. It's probably one of the most essential apps any new business owner needs to create brand awareness and learn new strategies to make a mark in a crowded market.
  20. The Battle of Winterfell was brutal, however, the main characters came out unharmed (oh, well mostly). The trailer for the upcoming episode 4 shows Daenerys Targaryen addressing the crowd for a battle that matters: A war against Cersei Lannister, who could possibly be the real villain of 'Game of Thrones'. But from the new photos of Season 8 Episode 4, that released yesterday, Queen Cersei has quite a bit of manpower awaiting the dragon queen. Take a look: © HBO Besides Euron's Iron fleet and a handful of the Lannister Army, Qyburn's shady science experiments including the dragon killer army, there is now the Golden Company sans elephants, of course, and there are ships full of men waiting to wage a war. In 'A Song Of Ice and Fire' novels, the Golden Company is a mercenary army from Essos and is made up of 20,000 men, horses, and potentially elephants. (The elephants couldn't make it, sadly. Nonetheless, the army is a major force to be reckoned with.) Now, with the already exhausted and steadily depleting army of the Dragon Queen, Cersei's army will be... ahem quite a heavy wrecking ball to deal with. © HBO The Golden Company has been mentioned a couple of times on 'GoT'. In Season 4, Ser Davos suggests Stannis hire the Golden Army. In season 7, Euron went off to hire "the most powerful army in Essos" to help Cersei keep the Iron Throne and it appears they've finally arrived. So, who do you think is going to win the war that matters?
  21. Apple created waves around the internet last year by becoming the world's first trillion dollar tech company. Then Amazon joined Apple's new-found trillionaire's club in just a month, becoming the second US-based company to cross the mark. Now, Microsoft has become the third US company to pass the market cap of $1 trillion after a jump in stock price following strong fiscal Q3 earnings. Yes, the tech company led by Satya Nadella briefly topped $1 trillion in value for the first time after executives predicted continued growth for its cloud computing business. © Google Stock Microsoft's stock price opened at $130 per share yesterday, which was up around 4-per cent from the closing price the day before. It swooped past Apple Inc's $980 billion market capitalization. The credit for Microsoft's immense stock growth goes to its cloud business. Azure, Microsoft's flagship cloud product competes with Amazon Web Services (AWS), who is a market leader. Azure is currently second behind Amazon, but it's ahead of Google's offering. © Microsoft Microsoft was once heavily reliant on the Windows operating system but things started changing once Satya Nadella took over as the Chief Executive. The company has seen significant growth in selling cloud-based services. It is, however, worth pointing out that Microsoft's market cap has dipped below the $1 Trillion mark. At the time of writing this, the market cap is currently standing at $990.87B. However, it's more than that of Apple, which currently sits at $967.95B.
  22. The Lazareth LMV 496, at first, looks essentially like a motorcycle. Okay, maybe an over-the-top 'mean-machine with four wheels' kind of motorcycle. But when it's pulled up on side of the road and starts soaring, that's when you realize that it's an unusual motorised creation. The Lazareth LMV 496, dubbed La Moto Volante, is a brainchild of designer & French custom automotive builder Ludovic Lazareth and his team. Before we dive into the details, let's take a moment to appreciate it - © Lazareth The Moto Volante rides much like a regular motorcycle on the road. However, it can be transformed into a jet-powered quadricopter with just a push of a button. It takes just about a minute for the jet mounts in the wheels to warm up and tilt 90-degrees. The bike will then take off, hovering off the ground. Each wheel of the bike is also mounted with a parachute for emergency purpose. The bike is apparently built around a beastly 470bhp engine, and it uses jet turbines to propel itself into the air. “It's a crazy commitment with the whole team,” said the company in a statement, and we totally get it. This thing is freaking awesome. The Moto Volante is said to appear at Gitex electronics trade show in Dubai later this year, and that's where the interested buyers can pre-order it for an expected price of around £424,000.
  23. Why do some companies make really hideous clothes and then try to sell them at a really high price? Because they know that no would actually buy it and they'll get free publicity out of it? Well, that honestly seems like the only reason for a monstrosity like this to exist. View this post on Instagram Two words: Denim panties. The SSENSE editors show you five ways to take your Canadian tuxedo to the next level, featuring @yproject_official, @muglerofficial, @junyawatanabeofficial, and more ð Link in bio. A post shared by SSENSE (@ssense) on Mar 26, 2019 at 8:07am PDT Why? Just, why? I would like to believe that no one ever thought this was a good idea and it was just put up on the website, that too for Rs 21,873 freaking bucks, to get people talking. Yes, I know we're giving them exactly what they want by writing about it right now but I can't help it. They're so unsettling to look at and people are confused, and just disgusted with them. The biggest question, though, is what kind of occasion would actually require these. I also want to know the purpose of denim panties, like are they supposed to be worn on their own or are you supposed to wear pants on top of them? Safiya, the weird clothing queen has spoken. HOW do i feel about $300 denim panties, you ask? well i'll tell you how i feel. utterly and thoroughly chafed pic.twitter.com/YYQ9v5dZ6b — Safiya Nygaard (@safiyajn) March 29, 2019 An occasion requiring proper formal attire.

  24. If you're a Marvel fan, the second you read this headline you probably thought, "hey. I'd do it for free"! But jokes apart, an American company called Cable TV is willing to pay $1000 to a die-hard Marvel nerd to basically binge watch 20 MCU movies. © Marvel It's not just hard cash that's going to come their way. The winner will also get lots of Marvel goodies like a Thanos mug encrusted with Infinity Stones, a Captain America popcorn popper amongst other super cool things. This is a promotional event for the upcoming movie 'Avengers: Endgame' and hence, they want someone with a high level of patience and will love to binge-watch this truckload of action more than anything else. The company is looking for a Marvel nerd who can over-enthusiastically live-tweet their entire experience and also have an outgoing personality. As a submission to participate in this contest, one needs to sum up in 200 words so as to why they are the ideal choice. Sadly, this is only valid for people living in America and over the age of 18, so well, there's a lot of FOMO attached here. Maybe you can help a friend living in the US to apply for it.
