  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. '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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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. K (@nadiakhairinas) November 7, 2018 After the Croc Bag, we weren't ready for another bizarre shoe just yet. On the brighter side, you wouldn't have to wash these sneakers.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.

  11. 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.
  12. 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.
