  1. Kartik Aaryan has never shied away from sartorial experiments, and he can legit claim that he has almost never failed at pulling off anything he has tried. Be it statement jackets or strange sneakers, he has always maintained a playful aesthetic when it comes to his wardrobe. While it may be a popular perception that whatever celebs wear can't be worn by us because they are extremely expensive, Kartik just proved it wrong by wearing a pair of sneakers which are actually affordable. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Kartik Aaryan wore a pair of sneakers that are inspired by the black adder snake. We love how playfully wild they are, thanks to the black and yellow snake-patterned sole. Also, what caught our focus was the price point of the shoes. © Hummel Kartik is wearing the Marathona Black Adder sneakers by Hummel, that costs somewhere around 60 Euros post discount. When converted to INR, it costs about Rs. 4,700. © Hummel The wild soles of the sneakers coupled with the black scaly surface clearly show us the inspiration behind the sneakers, and it doesn't get better when it comes to inspired pieces. © Hummel We're just glad this is one pair we can actually afford.

  2. Samsung has already confirmed that the company will be hosting its “Unpacked” launch event on February 11, 2020. It is usually the time when Samsung announces new Galaxy S phones and this year the Galaxy S20 is expected to launch. A previous leak suggested that the Galaxy S11 will probably be called Galaxy S20 and we can expect three models this year from the South Korean giant. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We kind of have an idea that the Galaxy S20 will feature some of the latest specifications thanks to a recent leak put together by Phone Arena which details every single piece of information about the three upcoming smartphones. In the below image, the three phones that will be launching are the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra. © Phone Arena The Galaxy S20 Ultra will be the first Samsung phone to sport a periscope zoom camera which will be an exclusive feature for the handset. The Galaxy S20 is also expected to launch on March 6, if this leak by Phone Arena is to be believed. At the moment, Phone Arena's information cannot be verified, which is why we advise you to take this leak with a pinch of salt. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Pricing for the three smartphones also leaked, revealing a $799 price tag for the S20, $999 for S20+ and $1,099 for the S20 Ultra. The Indian prices for the smartphones are expected to be different as Samsung tends to price it a bit lower in India, thanks to the presence of their manufacturing units in the country. We will learn more about the three units closer to the reveal event where the prices and the launch date will be officially announced. Source: Phone Arena View the full article
  3. Thanks to the polluted air that we breathe and the chemicals laced water and produce we consume, saying that we've surrounded ourselves with our own filth and poison would merely be an understatement. © iStock Naturally then, no matter how great care we take of ourselves and of our skin, or the kinds of products we use to keep ourselves spick and clean, we still have to deal with acne at some point of time or the other. And because that filth and poison we spoke of, most men like us have to deal with pimples, even after we've crossed our teenage years. © iStock So teenage and adult men alike, need to know how to deal with pimples and make them vanish in a jiffy. Don't want to spend a ton of time or money on doing so? No problem. Our mom's kitchens hold the answer to most of our problems anyway. Here are a few items from a typical Indian kitchen that go a long way in dealing with acne. Used Tea leaves © iStock Don't throw away the tea leaves once you're done brewing a strong cup of tea. Instead, stick them in the refrigerator. Once it is cold, simply moisten it with clean and cold water and apply it over the pimple. After letting it sit for 10-15 mins, rinse it off using cold water. Tea leaves, even the usual kind has a number of antioxidants that work really well for the skin while also regulating the oil secretion. Furthermore, it is a great way to keep the pH balance neutral. Just ensure that you don't use leaves that have been used for tea with milk, or sugar for that matter. Lemon Juice © iStock Most pimples breakout because the pH balance of your skin has gone berserk. Rubbing a slice of lemon gently over the pulp is a great way to restore balance. The citric acid also cleans up clogged pores, and once it dries up, the cores tend to tighten up. Once you are done massaging your face, simply wash off the juice and pulp with cold running water. Aloe Vera © iStock Okay, this isn't exactly something that you would find in the kitchen, but it surely is something that you can easily pick up from your garden, or some other place from your apartment complexes. Simply slice up a leaf and squeeze out as much sap as you can. Gently massage the sap over your pimples and watch them pretty much disappear overnight. Moreover, it helps your skin by keeping it moisturised so you don't need to use any moisturiser or oil. Ice © iStock Although ice does not do a lot to remedy the repeated appearance of zits, it does help you to alleviate the pain that comes when your pimple grows beyond a certain point. It also helps by speeding up the ripening of the pimple, which causes it to pop naturally. Ice also tends to tighten up the skin, which also helps. Just ensure that you wipe up the water using a napkin or a clean towel. Orange Peel © iStock Orange peel works in somewhat of a similar manner as lemon juice. Just squeeze the extracts from the orange coloured part of the peel over your pimples and let it rest. The enzymes from the peel help the zit to ripen a bit quicker and eventually pop. Just ensure that you clean up using plain cold water after 10 mins after letting the sap rest. View the full article
  4. If 'travelling' or anything along the lines of exploration and adventure happens to be on your list of New Year's resolutions in 2020, you ought to start packing your bags ASAP, because our beautiful southern neighbour, Sri Lanka is feeling too generous and has put into place a scheme that will allow Indians to get visa on arrival free of cost! © Twitter/the heavendairy Stellar news, right? But there's a catch, of course. This offer is valid for a limited time and shall expire post 30th April 2020. Thousands of Indians visit Sri Lanka every year, and have to pay as much as Rs 2,400 as visa fee upon arriving in the island country. © Twitter/Rahul Roy The good gesture has been extended following a dip in the country's tourism sector following the Easter attacks last year. In an attempt to revive tourism, the Sri Lankan government granted free visas to 49 countries, including India. © Twitter/theheavendairy Now, since we have passed on the necessary information to you, it's time that you follow up on the update and make the most of this offer. What better way to kick start the year than exploring a new country and rejuvenate before 2020 decides to come at you full force? View the full article
  5. Remember Apple's new Mac Pro machine? Yeah, the one which people started calling a "cheese grater". Well, in case you remember, it was estimated that a fully decked out version of the Mac Pro with all the bells and whistles will cost around $45,000, which is roughly around Rs 35 Lakh. Guess what? Apple started accepting pre-orders for the Mac Pro yesterday in the US and we finally know how much it'll cost to buy the most powerful Mac Pro. Turns out, it's more expensive than what was estimated earlier. © Apple If you head over to Apple's website and configure one with the most powerful pieces of hardware, then it'll add up $52,599. Yes, the most powerful Mac Pro costs over $50,000. That's just insane because it roughly translates to about Rs 38 lakh. The price tag makes it most expensive Mac ever. The base price of the Mac Pro starts at $5,999. That'll get you an entry-level machine with an octa-core Intel Xeon CPU, 32GB of RAM, a Radeon Pro 580X graphics, and 256GB of SSD. But if you keep adding on better components, like a 28-core 2.5GHz (turbo boost up to 4.4Ghz) Intel Xeon W that costs $7,000, the price naturally goes up. Top of the line GPU add-on, for instance, will add another $10,000 and so on. So you add all of that and the fully decked out Mac Pro will cost you $52,599. It's worth pointing out that the new Pro Display XDR isn't included in this price. That'll be an additional $5,999. © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee Well, you can't pre-order one in India just yet. Apple's website clearly tells you to check back later for availability details. But looking at the pricing in the US, we won't be surprised to see a super-premium price tag here too. We'll be back with India-specific details very soon, so stay tuned. Source: TheVerge View the full article
  6. 2019 has been a kickass year for Realme. The company launched a ton of phones this year, along with some really good pair of earphones. Their Realme Buds Wireless, the ones that are tuned by DJ Alan Walker are one of our favourite pairs of earbuds to come out this year. Now, Realme is looking to wrap up the year on a strong note with the launch of a pair of truly wireless earbuds. Called Realme Buds Air, the new pair of earbuds look a lot like Apple's AirPods. Although Realme will be launching them in three different colours, so that's great. © Realme There's still a lot that we don't know about the Realme Buds Wireless, but we do know enough to be super excited to try them out. Realme says the Realme Buds Wireless will support instant pairing via Bluetooth 5.0 and will automatically connect to your device as soon as you open the charging case. Yes, it exactly how Apple's AirPods work. Besides that, Realme has also confirmed that the earbuds will house a 12mm driver and comes with touch controls for music and call management. Looks like you'll also be able to activate the Google Assistant with just a single touch. That's also pretty neat and very convenient. © Realme As for the pricing, well, Realme has confirmed the pricing, but a premature Flipkart listing of the buds may have revealed the price. Now, we're not sure if this will be actual pricing. For all we know, it could just be a placeholder for the product reveal. The Flipkart listing, which has now been removed from the website at the time of filing this story, revealed the price tag of Rs 4,999. Yes, that's quite a bit more than what the company launched the Realme Buds Wireless for. That being said, it's worth making a note that these earbuds are a lot more sophisticated. And besides that, the Realme Buds Air still cost a lot less than the Apple AirPods. We don't know how good the Realme Buds Air are since we haven't gotten our hands on one of them yet, but we can't wait to try it, so keep your eyes peeled for more info. View the full article

  8. If there was one sneaker trend that took us by surprise this year, then hands down, we have to say that it was the “dirty” and “soiled” sneakers that we have been seeing all around. © Viral Bhayani Not only did we see the most notorious sneakerheads among Bollywood celebrities wearing some of the swankiest pairs that were purposefully made dirty, we saw many regular, mortals like ourselves, shell out big money to get a pair of seemingly soiled sneakers - #FOMO indeed. © Farfetch However, there were a few Bollywood biggies who went all out with the trend. Remember, Sidharth Malhotra, getting a pair that set him back by Rs 52,000? Or how about these ones that had Arjun Kapoor shelling out over Rs 40,000, to get his hands on? © Viral Bhayani Trust us when we say this - as admirable as both these pairs were, they don't hold a candle to what Shahid Kapoor got for his already impressive collection. Shahid Kapoor was recently spotted with his wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor in a rather understated and laidback, Sunday-brunch-worthy outfit. And from that outfit, what really stood out were the sweatshirt and the sneakers. The sweatshirt that Shahid was seen wearing is from Urban Outfitters and normally retails for $69 or roughly Rs 5000. We have to say, that the sweatshirt has a very gothic appeal to it. This certainly looks really great on Shahid. © Viral Bhayani However, the sneakers are the statement piece of the ensemble. These 'dirty' sneakers are from Gucci and are called Men's Rhyton leather sneakers. The sneakers have some really exotic materials. For example, most panels of the body are made using ivory leather, which has then been treated for that worn out, and distressed look. The rubber sole, along with the construction, adds to the retro vibe of the sneaker. © Urban Outfitters Finally, coming to the price. These sneakers from Gucci retail for about $790. For those out there who did not pay attention in their maths classes, that's just shy of Rs 60,000. © Gucci © Manav Manglani For that much money, you can easily rent a 4 BHK apartment in Gurugram. And mind you, the property rates over there, aren't exactly what you would call 'cheap'. View the full article
  9. When you see your opponent do great, you must acknowledge their hard work, applaud and move on, that's what's called a sportsmanship. It is however of utmost importance to learn from that loss and work on your weakness to prevent the same things from happening again. The first T20I match between India and Bangladesh at the Arun Jaitley Stadium is the classic example of the two lessons mentioned above. Here are the five major mistakes that the Men in Blue committed and let that ninth consecutive victory against the Tigers slip away from themselves in the shortest format of the game: 1. Rishabh Pant Causes Shikhar Dhawan's Wicket Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is going to be mentioned a lot during the article starting out with the horrible running between the wickets that he did which led to the dismissal of a set batsman in Shikhar Dhawan in the 15th over. Shikhar dhawan fan army waiting for rishabh pant #INDvBAN pic.twitter.com/0rjkEMOsUJ — Deepak Pareek (@being_kabir) November 3, 2019 Slow to get out of the crease during the first run followed by a call for the second run when the ball was already in the hands of the fielder was a horrible call at the hands of the 22-year-old cricketer. 2. Not Calling DRS Against Mushfiqur Rahim On Two Occasions While it is difficult to digest the fact that the umpires were doing an abysmal job in decision-making when it came to LBW appeals, Rohit Sharma's woes with the DRS continued to haunt him throughout the second innings of the match. Chahal wanted to go for the review on 9.3. But didnt plead like Ash/Jaddu generally do! For 9.2 Rohit asked Chahal if he should go for the review. But backed out thinking there was an edge!#INDvBAN — Hariharan Durairaj (@hari_durairaj) November 3, 2019 Rahim was having a difficult time reading Yuzvendra Chahal's platora of deliveries and during his second over, Chahal even managed to get the ball to hit him on the pads, right in front of the wickets. While Sharma wrongly put his faith in Pant and Chahal on the first occasion, the second incident wasn't even discussed. 3. Unnecessary DRS Appeal By Rishabh Pant The one time Team India should have stayed away from taking the review, Rohit Sharma went for it. To be fair to the substitute captain, he decided to go ahead with the solitary review based on Rishabh Pant's excessive assertiveness with the call. pic.twitter.com/im2HxKmSAP — Jagadhish D (@MSdhoni7788) November 3, 2019 “Laga, laga, laga,” shouted the young wicket-keeper thinking that he had the cricketer on a caught behind and convinced the skipper to go ahead and go for the call. Not taking a lot of time, the third-umpire said that there was no contact and India lost the review. 4. Krunal Pandya Drops A Dolly Arguably the moment that turned the game completely in favour of the Tigers came in the 18th over. With 33 runs required off 16 deliveries, it was still anybody's game when Rahim struck towards the deep midwicket and the ball came flying into the hands of Krunal Pandya. #IndvsBan Krunal Pandya. Useless fellow. I was sitting in third row in East Stand today just behind where Krunal Pandya was standing. I had started celebrating when Rahim had played the slog sweep. I could not believe my eyes that Pandya dropped that catch. pic.twitter.com/Ug6nQfO1bQ — Different ð Perspectiveð­ (@Iam_VaibhavGoel) November 3, 2019 Surprisingly Pandya, who's proven to be a decent fielder in the past, someone managed to drop the ball off his hands and gave away four runs as well. 5. Khaleel Ahmed's Penultimate Over Yes, it is true that Khaleel Ahmed was only one of the three Indians to scalp a wicket last night, it is also true that he was the most expensive bowler from Sharma's bowling attack. Khaleel Ahmed's last 4 deliveries in the 19th over described- ðððð pic.twitter.com/mWZfuiuL3o — Deep Kumar (@deep_kumar07) November 3, 2019 Known for not being the best options in death overs, giving the ball in the final moments of the game against an established batsman like Rahim and a big hitter like Mahmudullah Riyad was the worst decision Sharma could have made. The result? Rahim sent four of Ahmed's consecutive deliveries for boundaries, making a joke out of the required run rate. View the full article
  10. The PlayStation 5 is scheduled to launch next year during holiday season 2020 and some leaks report that it may launch in the month of December. However, a brand new leak comes from a European retailer that reveals the possible price of the upcoming console. The price was spotted by ComicBook.com and reported that the console could be more expensive at launch when compared to the PS4's launch price. © Twitter/Letsgodigital According to the leak by ProGamingShop, a European retailer in Slovakia, the PlayStation 5 is expected to cost around €500 which roughly translates to $558 USD. Going by this leak the PlayStation 5 may cost around $500 or $550 dollars in the US which is ~Rs 39,000 as of today's exchange rate. That's around $100-$150 dollars more than the PS4 at launch, which seems quite believable. If this leak is to be taken at face value, the PlayStation 5 will cost Rs 39,000 in the US, but in India, it will be a lot more expensive than the international price. India charges a total 28.5% of duty on video game consoles and the price of the PlayStation 5 in India might just be around Rs 55,000. This is assuming that the leaked price turns out to be the actual price of the PlayStation 5 and the import duty isn't changed by the time of the PlayStation 5 launch. © Twitter/LetsGoDigital Along with the price leak, the product page also lists December 4, 2020, as the launch date of the console in the region. It is in line with previous leaks that suggested a December 2020 launch date and it also happens to be the same launch date as the PlayStation 1. © Twitter/LetsGoDigital Of course, we advise that you take this leak with a grain of salt as the retailer may not be as reliable as Amazon or BestBuy. It could be that the website may have posted incorrect launch dates or the price. The product page also could be a placeholder for the eventual launch of the console in order to get traction on the listing. Source: ComicBook.com
  11. Apple decided to knock it out of the park with the new Mac Pro. It's one of the best and the most powerful pieces of hardware that Apple has ever put out. But with a starting price of $6,000, the Mac Pro, needless to say, is a pricey affair. That $6,000 price tag (roughly Rs 4.15 lakhs), by the way, is for the base variant of the Mac Pro. Apple decided to remain tight-lipped when it comes to the price of a maxed-out Mac Pro, which sort of makes it pretty obvious that it's not going to be cheap. Nope, not happening. In fact, the folks over at TheVerge decided to play around the number a bit and came up with an estimated figure. They shopped around for equivalent part that Apple announced during the keynote, and turns out, it's going to cost you a lot of money. Like, a lot. Well, before we tell you how much it'll most likely cost, let's check out how powerful a fully maxed-out Mac Pro really is. Once Apple puts it out on the market for purchase, you can configure a Mac Pro with a 28-core Intel Xeon W processor, to begin with. That's significantly more powerful than the 18-core iMac that they launched last year, which is already a beast of a machine. In addition to that processor, you can configure the Mac Pro with, wait for it, 1.5TB of RAM. No, that is not a typo. You can actually get a Mac Pro with 1.5 Terabytes of RAM. Also, you can get up to 4TB SSD and four AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo GPUs. That is, of course, if you can afford even one. © Apple As you can see, Apple's new Mac Pro is one of the most powerful computers out there on the market right now. The amount of performance you can get out of this machine is something that's almost impossible to comprehend. So, how much is it going to cost? According to TheVerge, a fully maxed out Mac Pro i.e. the top-of-the-line Mac Pro complete with a 28-Core Xeon processor, 1.5TB RAM, and all that good stuff will cost you at least $33,000, which roughly translates to about Rs. 22 lakhs. But wait, we haven't even added GPUs yet, which could easily bump the price up to around an eye-watering $45,000 i.e. roughly around Rs. 32 lakhs. Now, this isn't an iMac Pro we're talking about here, so you have to buy a monitor separately. Lucky for you, Apple also introduced a new 6K display called Pro Display XDR monitor. As the name suggests, it's basically the best monitor has ever created and it's apparently comparable to reference monitors out there that cost upwards of $40,000. © YouTube So, if you add that to the price to make it a fully maxed-out Mac Pro setup with Apple's best display, then you're looking at at least $50,000 which is roughly Rs 35 lakhs. Oh, you know what? Apple is not including the stand for the display inside the box, so please add that as well. That'll cost you an additional $1,000. Go figure! Do make a note that these are just estimates based on the prices of the components that are already out there on the market. We still don't know how much Apple is going to charge you for a fully maxed-out Mac Pro. But looking at Apple's history of pricing, you can expect it to be more than the market standard. And if you're planning to buy one in India, then you'll also have to factor the import duties, which is only going to make it more expensive. That being said, the new Mac Pro's, at least a fully a maxed-out Mac Pro, isn't meant for average everyday users anyway. By the word 'Pro', Apple is targetting the 'true' professionals like cinematographers and filmmakers. We can totally imagine the folks over at some film studio using a fully maxed-out Mac Pro to edit huge chunks of files.
  12. The thing that sets Kartik Aaryan's style game apart from everyone else, is the sheer relatability and cool quotient. He has been proving it time and time again with his woke sartorial choices, and he reminds us of it, every now and then. The latest instance was when he wore a pair of white trainers - a pair we think is one of the most playful pairs we have seen this year. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani © Hummel Kartik is wearing the Hummel Edmonton OG, a '90s inspired full-grain leather trainer that is a super-solid performance trainer. Featuring a moulded EVA midsole and a rubber outsole. It includes performance features, such as an internal stability shank and a shock-point EVA in the heel zone absorbing shocks to give you softer landings. © Hummel © Hummel The white and black Lycra details and red top aylets providing extra stability and a snug fit makes it a pair that is fashionable, as well as super functional. When it comes to how much it costs, it's surprisingly affordable considering its features. It costs 109 Euros, which when converted to Indian currency, comes close to around Rs 8400. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Coming to the rest of his outfit, we like the relaxed vibe that the versatile black and white aesthetic extends. When it comes to a sporty summer outfit, this one works like a charm. To more such woke fashion choices, Kartik!
  13. We're still a few days away from the official launch of the new OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro. However, we already know pretty much everything about the phone, including its pricing. Yes, we just learned that the OnePlus 7 Pro will retail in India for a starting price of Rs 49,999 for the base variant of the phone with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. You will also be able to pick up the variant with 8GB RAM and 256G internal storage for Rs 52,999, or you can go all in and get the high-end variant with a whopping 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage for Rs 57,999. Exclusive: Here's the #OnePlus7Pro India Pricing: 6GB+128GB: â¹ 49,999 8GB+256GB: â¹ 52,999 12GB+256GB: â¹ 57,999 Disclaimer- Prices MAY change before launch under some circumstances and I can't be 100% sure about such leaks.#OnePlus7 Pro #OnePlus7Series #OnePlusIndia pic.twitter.com/Rgo2oD8kpA — Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) May 4, 2019 The prices are a bit high compared to the previous OnePlus smartphones, but that's not really a surprise considering the fact that we are talking about the Pro variant of the phone here. There's no information about the prices of the regular OnePlus 7, but we think it'll comparatively cheaper. As always, it's worth pointing out that these aren't the official prices confirmed by the company. These prices were put out by Ishan Agarwal, a noted leaker with a good track record. But even he tweeted the pricing with a disclaimer, so we suggest you take it with a pinch of salt. By the way, he also noted that the OnePlus 7 Pro will be available in Mirror Grey, Nebula Blue, and Almond color variants. The new phones, as mentioned earlier, will be officially launched in a couple of weeks time, so stay tuned for more details.
  14. Microsoft, in case you don't know, is working on developing the highly anticipated 'Halo Infinite' title. The game won't be out until the end of 2019, but we've learnt something very exciting about the development. According to reports, the budget set by Microsoft and 343 Industries for 'Halo Infinite', is reportedly more than a whopping $500 million. Yup, it looks like Microsoft handed over a blank cheque to 343 Industries for the title, making it the most expensive video game project ever. © 343industries The report comes from a German outlet called Xbox Dynasty , which says that Halo Infinite's development costs currently dwarfs even the likes of 'Red Dead Redemption 2' and 'Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2', which are known to be some expensive titles. With that budget, Halo Infinite will cost more than even Marvel's upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame' movie, with an estimated budget between $300 - $400 million. Even the Infinity War was estimated to have a similar budget. It is, however, worth pointing out that this is just a rumour and Xbox Dynasty didn't provide proof to back up its claim. So, it's best if you take the report with a pinch of salt. That being said, Microsoft investing significantly into the development of Halo Infinite makes sense. Microsoft is betting big on this title for the future of gaming and its consoles. So, it's not really a surprise that they're going all in to exceed all expectations.
  15. 'Kalank' promotions are in full swing, and every time the star cast steps out, they bowl us over with their style game. Given the grandeur of the movie, the outfits are also grand, but Aditya Roy Kapoor just flouted this pattern by wearing a pair of Air Jordans which are super funky, and surprisingly affordable as well. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Aditya is wearing the Nike Don C Jordan Legacy, a hybrid sneaker inspired by 3 basketball shoes - the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 3, and Nike Alpha Force Low. © Sneaker News © Sneaker News A homage to the 1980s, the best thing about these sneakers is the fact that they come in 3 exciting colourways (Aditya is wearing perhaps the funkiest of them all, the one with the pink), and are extremely affordable at the same time, with the price of around Rs 11,000/-. © Sneaker News © Sneaker News We are in love with the pair because of its versatility and conspicuousness at the same time. Let's just say it's a definite collectable!

The famous police headquarters of The Scotland Yard is now opening its doors as a lavish 5 star hotel, courtesy Indian billionaire Yusuff Ali who spent over 75 million pounds on revamping it. © Daily Mail Mr. Yusuff is the owner of the Lulu Group in the Gulf and his company has a turnover of over £5.6billion. The Scotland Yard hotel has over 153 rooms and a night here will be over 10,000 pounds which translates to around Rs 9 lakhs per night. Obviously, the rooms will have an enviable view of the Westminster Abbey and the Buckingham Palace as well. © Twitter © Daily Mail Old prisoner cells have been converted into meeting rooms and secet whiskey bar and a big chandelier in the hotel is a tribute to a gang of famous female robbers, the Forty Elephants. © Daily Mail The hotel will open its doors this year and promises a different experience to its guests. Who even thought that a place guarding prisoners would turn into something which commands you to throw so much money to spend a night here!
  17. They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Since fashion is subjective, we don't expect everyone to understand every trend. But when companies create bizarre products that are listed for ridiculous prices, we can't help but be shocked. Gucci's Cruise '19 collection features a pair of 'vintage distressed sneakers' that have us shook. The shoes look pre-dirty and worn and we're just not sure who would actually want to own a pair. Take a look at these babies. © Gucci © Gucci The product detail on the website lists that the shoes are inspired by vintage sportswear patterns from the 70s and is treated for an 'all-over distressed effect'. We don't know about distress but these just look plain dirty and worn out. They look a little too vintage, if you ask us. © Gucci If you're already frowning over the bizarre product, wait till we mention the price of these kicks. The Screener GG Sneaker is retailed at 870 USD which converts to Rs 61,938. That's pretty damn expensive for a pair of old worn-out looking shoes. © Gucci As if the Gucci 'racist' sweater controversy hadn't stirred enough trouble for the brand, this shoe is getting trolled by the internet too. Take a look at what some Twitter users had to say about this product. Gucci is really out here selling the sneakers your mom uses for gardening and Sunday cleaning for $800 pic.twitter.com/Eh5wEBQMSc — camille (@cxmillexxxx) October 30, 2018 The poor try to look rich and the rich try to look poor! ð — BROOKLYNBREAD (@Rinseyjones) November 7, 2018 When ur born rich a f but don't wanna be a called a snobby daddy's boy at school = Gucci's New Vintage Sportswear-Inspired Dirty Sneakers Cost $870 USD #gucci #guccifromthehood https://t.co/ektXQtoKIl — Nadia.

  18. I'm sure that most reading this blog are running an up-to-date Invision Community and enjoying all the benefits of a modern community platform. Little things that get taken for granted now, like being able to view your community on a mobile phone without pinching and zooming just to read a few posts and having multiple automated tools to deal with community toxicity and spam. However, a little wander around the web soon uncovers some really old forum systems still somehow creaking along. Amazingly, most of these communities are still used daily, often with millions of posts in the archives. It might be tempting to ask why keep upgrading and investing in new versions of the software? After all, if the community is still running just fine and getting daily visitors, then it's ok to do nothing, right? But there is a hidden cost in doing nothing. Security This is the main one for me. Old platforms often have several published security vulnerabilities. Often these vulnerabilities are exploited by scripts that are shared around hacker communities. This means exploiting a website running an old version of a forum system is as simple as running a script and pointing it at your site. Older forums are also less sophisticated. They rely on unsafe hashing methods to store passwords and lack vital features like two-factor authentication. Also, consider that the server environment has to be maintained with out of date PHP and MySQL versions. It's a recipe for disaster. Could your community survive a major exploit where data is downloaded into the hands of a hacker? The cost could be fatal to your community. Declining engagement Even the most ardent of fans on your community will eventually tire of struggling to access your site on mobile devices. I think back to 2002 when we created the first version of our software. We only had to focus on how it looked on a computer, so naturally, that influenced the design of the forum. It's not so simple now. More and more of us are using mobile phones to access the internet. A recent statistic showed that mobile internet access outstrips desktop use 2 to 1; and for some countries, mobile internet access is almost the only way people get online. It's just a matter of time before new members stop registering and engagement tails off. Competition At the end of 2018, there were 1.8 billion websites (I Googled it). The competition for attention has never been as fierce. Your community may be the go-to place for your niche, but what if another community popped up running the latest version of a platform with all the features your members have been desperately asking for? It may not take long until there is a massive drain from your community. I'm sure there's a dozen reasons to make sure you're always re-investing in your community by upgrading to a modern platform. This blog merely scratches the surface. For those of you that do invest and upgrade? You reap the benefits daily by ensuring you are doing the very best for your community by keeping it secure and accessible for most. If you are on an older platform, now is the time to put some serious thought into making the move to something better. I put together a little downloadable guide that might help too. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
  19. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' spectacular wedding in Udaipur was straight out of a fairytale. A grand palace, a queen waiting for her king, guests dancing around the couple and basically all the joy in the world embedded in one spot. The wedding was what dreams are made of. View this post on Instagram Once upon a fairytale... @nickjonas Link in bio @people A post shared by Priyanka Chopra Jonas (@priyankachopra) on Dec 4, 2018 at 7:12am PST Rajasthan has been a hot spot for lavish weddings and the recent grand celebrity wedding has revived the craze for Indians wanting to call in their New Year with a bang, amidst the grandeur of a gorgeous palatial hotel and maybe peacocks dancing for company. However, this sudden rise of demand has obviously affected the supply and now, the surge in the prices of the average hotel room in a luxurious property is actually off the lid. In fact, a night at the Lake Palace in Udaipur can cost you around 11 lakhs! © TOI As per the latest report in TOI, there is more than a 40% jump in prices for spending 31st December at a luxury property. However, these tariffs do have takers as well because the people who are spending their money want a luxurious experience and money is not a major criterion. But, in case you were planning to flock to the gorgeous state then maybe your budget needs a revision. Anyway, guys, it matters not where you call in the New Year, it matters with whom you call in the New Year. Right?
  20. There is a popular opinion that does rounds in the misinformed section of the fitness community regarding walking. Some even go to the extent of creating stupid videos for some hits and likes on these misinformed topics that make claims like 'walking will not help you lose weight', 'walking is just an activity and does nothing as your body easily adapts to it', so on and so forth. © Pixabay True, walking does not help you lose weight. In fact, any particular exercise does not make you lose weight. To oversimplify it, what makes you lose weight? Eating less and moving more helps you lose weight. Create a caloric deficit, follow it, you will lose weight. Add protein and weight training to the mix if you want to be muscular and look good naked after losing the weight. Now let's see how walking can be a super beneficial thing to do to lose weight and how it changes the game completely. Caloric deficit = Energy expenditure > Energy intake Energy intake is the food that you eat and Energy expenditure can be broken down into four components: 1. RMR - Resting metabolic rate 2. TEF - Thermic Effect of Feeding 3. TEA - Thermic Effect of Activity 4. NEAT - Non-exercise Activity Thermogenesis RMR is related to your bodyweight, TEF to the amount of food you are eating, TEA to your exercise schedule. All of these are variables you understand and have certain control over. The NEAT is where things become tricky. NEAT or the non-exercise activity thermogenesis stands for all the subconscious activity that you do during the day that is not considered as exercise. © Pixabay Due to the sedentary lifestyle and the office jobs most people have these days, they are sitting on a desk for 8 to 12+ hours in a day. Even though they might be working out hard in the gym and considering themselves active, the 40 to 50% of the day spent on a desk still makes them sedentary. For this very reason, your NEAT can vary anywhere between 15 to 50% of your RMR. Let's say your RMR is 1500 kcals, your NEAT could be anywhere between 250 to 750 kcals per day. Another thing that has been documented by studies is that your NEAT increases with overfeeding and decreases with underfeeding or when trying to lose weight. As you can see, this reduction in NEAT can reduce your energy expenditure anywhere between 250 kcals to 750 kcals in the above example. This is a significant number and can reduce your weight loss to absolute nil and make you think that your metabolism is damaged. How Do You Counter This? By consciously increasing your sub-conscious activity! Insert the superhero of activity here that is walking. You can simply push your NEAT up by keeping a count on the number of steps you are taking per day and slowly pushing it up. You can buy a lower-priced step counting wearable or simply install an app to count your steps for the day. Walking also makes to the top of the list as it is not physically straining and does not hamper your recovery in any way. You can listen to a podcast, connect with a long lost friend or simply take a family member with you and have a conversation with them. So to those coaches who think walking is useless, you need to educate yourselves a bit better and those who are struggling to lose weight and thinking their metabolism is broken, it is not. Just push up your NEAT. Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company.

  21. Xiaomi announced a range of new smart devices for Indian homes and we've been testing one of those gadgets for over a week. It's the affordable 360 degree 1080p security camera that basically looks like 'EVA' from 'Wall-E'. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to security, traditionally people tend to buy the most expensive setup out there, because not many people want to take a chance with an affordable solution. Having said that, the Mi Home Security Camera is here to change everyone's mind. It's equipped with a 360-degree wide-angle lens and one can move it up and down to 45 degrees. The security camera can capture 1080P video, has intelligent motion detection, infrared night vision and has a two-way talk feature. Basically, this smart security camera can do more than anything being offered in India at an affordable price. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Setting up the Mi Home Security Camera 360° was probably easier than setting up a new smartphone. You first start by plugging in the security and you get prompted by a voice stating “Waiting to connect” or something like that. You need to download the 'Mi Home' app if you haven't already. Make sure the 'Mi Home' app's region is set to “India (Asia Server)” otherwise you will not be able to pair the security camera. Once the app detects the security camera, it will use Bluetooth and your Wi-Fi network to set it up. The entire process probably takes around three minutes. How It Works © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Once your security camera is added to the 'Mi Home' app, you can open the camera from the hub. It will automatically show you live footage from the room the camera is placed in. You can even notice the bit rate of the stream at the top. You can pause/play, change resolution, mute/unmute right from the application. You can even change the orientation of the camera from the app when you're not home and want to see something in the corner. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The motion detection on the security camera is top notch and you can even program the camera to send a notification to your smartphone each time it detects motion. Likewise, you can even set up the camera to start recording a video or take pictures when it detects motion. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Mi App will even show you the entire history of each movement detected in the room. The security camera has a microSD slot where it can store all the files for you to view. The security camera is able to store footage for up to a week which you can save on your smartphone if you ever need to access it. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla You can even store footage on a NAS drive if you happen to have one at your home. It would have been cool to see some support for cloud storage and it would be awesome to store videos and images on Mi Cloud or any third party service. You can have the security camera record for 24 hours at a certain time, or have it record only when it detects motion. You can even make a voice call to the security camera if someone is there in your room. It's a great feature to scare away people who are snooping in your room. I used it to scare my dogs when I was away and it definitely made them howl. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Infrared night recording also works like a charm, as one can see everything clearly even in a pitch dark room. Everything is clear as daylight and the cool thing is that the security camera automatically switches to infrared mode, as soon as you switch off all the lights. The Final Say © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Mi Home Security Camera is probably our favourite device from the range of devices Xiaomi has launched recently. It should be priced way higher for all the things it does, but it only costs Rs 2,699. If you already have other Xiaomi smart home products, you can even create scenes within the Mi Home app for it to create your own smart home scenario. The Mi Security Camera 360° is a total winner in every aspect and is a must buy for every Indian homeowner.
  22. Apple is expected to launch new iPhones in a matter of weeks and while the smartphones may offer incremental upgrades, there's something we can be happy about. iPhones are in no way cheap or budget devices, they are often priced higher than most smartphones and still manage to sell like hotcakes. The iPhone X launched at a price of $999 (Rs 70,000), highest for any iPhone. However, it seems like they are about to get cheaper. © Twitter/Cultofmac The new iPhones are expected to come in three models that will offer the same facial recognition technology as the iPhone X. The cheapest is expected to be a 6.1-inch LCD model with a single primary camera lens. The 5.8-inch OLED model is going to be the direct successor to the iPhone X while a larger 6.5-inch OLED will replace the Plus models. © Twitter Since there are three models expected to launch this year, the prices of the phones have been often speculated. A renowned analyst from KGO securities Ming Chi-Kuo has detailed what the three smartphones are expected to cost. According to Kuo, the 6.1-inch LCD model is expected to cost $699 (Rs 49,000) which is what Apple currently charges for the iPhone 8. The 5.8-inch OLED model is expected to be cheaper than its predecessor the iPhone X. The successor is expected to cost $899 (Rs 63,000), a $100 cheaper than the iPhone X. The third smartphone Apple is expected to launch is the larger iPhone X Plus that is expected to cost $999 (Rs 70,000). The same price the iPhone X was launched for in 2017. When will they launch? Well, Apple has always launched new iPhone models in the second week of September, while making it available for purchase in the second half of the month. A leak by a German site Macerkopf claims that the pre-orders are expected to go live on September 14.

  25. Former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif's stunning admission on the deadly 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks has put a lot of pressure on the Pakistani establishment to come clean on the issue. Sharif's statement caught the administration off-guard as well as received a lot of criticism in Pakistan. © Twitter This is what the former Pakistan PM had said: “We have isolated ourselves. Despite making sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not. We must look into it. Militant organisations are active. Call them non-state actors — should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me. Why can't we complete the trial?” Sharif had said on Friday. His party, however, claimed that his comments were misinterpreted and that the media had lent credence to the already well-known fact about the Mumbai attacks. © Twitter Responding to the critics, PML-N spokesperson said that Sharif, its supreme leader, and the party, "need no certificate from anybody on their commitment and capacity to preserve, protect and promote Pakistan's national security". "After all, it was Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who, resisting all pressures, took the most important and most difficult decision on national security in Pakistan's history by making the country a nuclear power in May 1998," it said. His comments, however, might incur the wrath of the military as the National Security Committee is set to meet this week to discuss the statements made by Sharif. The National Security Committee will look into the statements which came surprisingly after reports showed that the Pakistan PM may have diverted funds to India after the courts went after his family's assets. With these damning statements, which go against the Pakistan narrative, the political future of Nawaz Sharif looks incredibly bleak.
