  1. Every year, we see some sort of advancement in the display tech. From smartphones to TVs, there's a lot happening in the display space and we can't wait to see what comes our way in the future. In the meantime, there's a company called Mojo Vision, that's showcasing what it believes in the future of display tech. A smart contact lens that acts as a display. Yes, you read that right. So, Mojo Vision showcased a single lens that's embedded with some circuits with a tiny dot in the center. © Mojo Vision Mojo Vision is essentially making a smart contact lens that'll act as a display. Obviously, the tech is nowhere close to being ready, which is why we said it's the "future of display". At CES (Consumer Electronics Show) this year, Mojo Vision was showing lens with some sort of text displayed in a loop. The company says there is a ton of text info that can be displayed. You can see things like time, date, health data, heart rate, and more. You can also read messages from your friends. It sounds very similar to the smart glasses, but except in this case, it's a lens. Besides, it also says they're still working to make smart contact lens a true solution. They want the product to be so good that it's ready to enter the market as something that people can buy and wear it on a daily basis. That makes sense, but we're not entirely sure if/ when that'll happen. © Mojo Vision However, imagine a world in which you're wearing just a contact lens to consume the media. No additional devices required whatsoever. Heck, you don't even need a smartphone or a pocket device. It could be as simple as talking to a digital assistant and getting things projected on the lens. It's certainly the kind of cyberpunk world we want to live in, but it could be many years away from now. Source: WIRED View the full article
  2. Up until a few days ago, we were hearing a lot of rumors about Apple's iPhone SE 2. But the last couple of rumors have suggested that the iPhone SE 2 that we were hearing about would actually be called iPhone 9. Either way, it's a new iPhone, so it's definitely something to get excited about. The new iPhone 9 is said to be an iPhone 8 successor, which is why it'll apparently look similar to that. According to a new report by a Japanese publication, the iPhone 9's design will closely resemble the iPhone 8, which means it'll use the same chassis. © YouTube/ MKBHD However, the new iPhone 9 is said to feature a bigger display, so let's just say that we're essentially looking at a phone that looks like the iPhone 8, but with a bigger display. While the iPhone 8 featured a 4.7-inch LCD panel, the new one is said to come with a 5.4-inch display. A bigger display in the same body of the iPhone 8 also means that there won't be any room for TouchID or the button at the bottom. So, the iPhone 9 will have a TrueDepth camera for FaceID tech. As for the internals, it looks like the iPhone 9 will be powered by the new A13 Bionic chip, which is the same one that's powering the current-gen iPhones. That's great because it's one of the most powerful chips in the market right now. © YouTube/ MKBHD We don't know much about the optics, but if the rumors are something to go by, then we can expect to see an improved camera over the one found on the iPhone 8. Let's just wait for more info to roll out on that. But overall, the iPhone 9 is shaping up to be a really good device. The fact that it'll be smaller like the iPhone 8 and will pack all the latest and the greatest internals and features like FaceID will probably make it a lucrative option for people looking to upgrade from an older iPhone. And since we're not looking at an OLED panel with a notch or anything, it could also be priced relatively low, making it an absolute no-brainer. We're really excited to check out this new phone, so stay tuned for more info on the same. Source: Macotakara View the full article
  3. During the 44th over of Indiaâs innings in the first ODI in Mumbai, Rishabh Pant suffered a head concussion following a Pat Cummins bouncer which struck the batsman right in the helmet and also caused him to lose his wicket. While Pant was immediately rushed for medical assistance, the wicket-keeping gloves were handed over to KL Rahul. It was later confirmed that Pant was kept under observation and will not be travelling with the team for the second ODI in Rajkot. Update: Rishabh Pant has got a concussion after being hit on his helmet while batting. KL Rahul is keeping wickets in his absence. Pant is under observation at the moment. #TeamIndia #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/JkVElMacQc â BCCI (@BCCI) January 14, 2020 Now where does that leave the Men in Blue as far as roster selection and batting order are concerned? If this situation would have presented itself last month, the answer to this question might have been a lot more than it seems to be now. Back then, an out of form Shikhar Dhawan suffered a big knee injury and was out of action for multiple series. All that while, it was Rahul who opened the innings with Rohit Sharma and he was doing a phenomenal job. We all believed that this top-form Rahul was the end of Dhawanâs time with the team and that the southpaw was going to be dropped soon. But in the last two T20Is against Sri Lanka and the first Australia ODI, a healed Dhawan has looked like his old self - confident and very capable of playing under immense pressure. In addition, the left-right combination of Dhawan and Sharma at the top would definitely help India during the upcoming ICC Menâs T20 World Cup. View this post on InstagramFIFTY! A hard-fought half-century for @shikhardofficial off 66 deliveries. This is his 28th in ODIs. #INDvAUSA post shared by (@indiancricketteam) So what happens to Rahul? The Mangalore-born has proven himself to be a more than capable wicket-keeper during the Indian Premier League and other domestic tournaments such as the Vijay Hazare Trophy, and his batting speaks for itself. During the Mumbai match on Tuesday, he showed that he does a significantly better job in following the ball from behind the stumps than Pant. His assessment of the trajectory of the ball during David Warnerâs LBW on a Shardul Thakur appeal also helped Kohli save the DRS, something Pant has been specifically bad at, granted the sample size is small. If Dhawan and Sharma are fixed as openers, that leaves Rahul with the third and fourth spot, based on how flexible Virat Kohli is. Even though Kohli has said that he isnât all that worried about playing on either of the spots, Indian veteran VVS Laxman decoded why Kohli at 4 wouldnât work. âI donât see this working. Sachin Tendulkar was the best player the world had ever seen. But he never relished batting at number four.â Laxman said. âYou want your best batsman to play maximum number of deliveries and set the game up and finish the game for the team, especially against quality attack. One cannot afford to experiment against this Australian bowling line-up," he said. âYouâve got someone like Virat Kohli that has played 230-odd one-day matches and 180 of those have been at No.3 and he has scored almost 10,000 runs at that particular position," he added. With Shreyas Iyer sliding to five, Rahul is left with the cursed number four spot, which isnât the best of news for either the player or the team. In his six-year ODI career, Rahul has played a total of four innings at two-down and has only made 52 runs with the highest score of 26, according to HowsSTAT. Even amidst the crisis that Team India has found itself to be in, what is certain is that KL Rahul is a far superior batsman than Rishabh Pant. He has the shots, the experience and the patience to make it through a challenging innings that the 22-year-old clearly lacks. Pantâs time away from the field could turn out to be a blessing in disguise for the team as this gives them the opportunity to explore a new and improved Rahul at the number four spot of doom. Will he be the one to lift the curse? View the full article
  4. Farhan Akhtar is currently prepping for his film Toofan which is set to release on October 2, 2020. This is probably the reason why you see him in his bulky yet ripped avatar these days. But once in a while, he takes a break from shooting. © Viral Bhayani This is when he spends time with his family. Recently, when he had stepped out with his family and his girlfriend, Shibani Dandekar for dinner, he wore a rather interesting outfit. Firstly, this was a casual dinner so no one was particularly dressed up amongst the lot. However, Farhan Akhtar was seen in pants that were not only quirky but at the same time, relatively more functional than any other pair of pants that we've seen in a while. Take a look here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The interesting element of his pants is the pockets. The pair have extremely long pockets, so much so that a tonne of things can fit in them. Pockets with that kind of space aren't designed anymore, it's luxury to have pockets at all these days in pants. And here we have Farhan Akhar with pockets the size of a bum bag. We wouldn't be surprised if he isn't carrying a bag at all. In fact, the pockets are enough to fit-in both Farhan and Shibani's personal knick-knacks together. In fact, they're big enough to hold an iPad and a phone, among other things without filling up the pocket. But seeing the incredible amount of space that these pants hold, we just hope that we're also lucky enough to find a pair of pants with pockets this size for ourselves. View the full article
  5. 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
  6. A new Assassin's Creed is probably on its way and the existence of the game was leaked via website listings. Ubisoft has not officially announced the game but leaks are pointing towards one of the biggest games in the series. The game listed on the websites was called Assassin's Creed Ragnarok and is expected to release later this year. © Ubisoft A leak that was posted on 4Chan and later on Reddit revealed detailed information that sounds believable but we still suggest you take it with a pinch of salt. According to the leaker, the game will launch in September 2020 and will be a cross-generational game. It will support four-player co-operative mode or with a single character that can be either male or female. It is said to have role-playing mechanics similar to Assassin's Creed Odyssey and will also introduce a new weapon durability feature. The game will also feature a hidden blade, an iconic feature that was not included in the previous iteration. © Reddit Leaks also suggest that the game will be set in the 9th century and will deal with Norse mythology. The map is also expected to be larger than ever and will expand to cities like Paris, London and Kiev. There will also be more emphasis on mythical beasts that will be protecting temples and other key locations. Previous Assassin's Creed games have leaked in the past and most of the rumours have turned out to be true. It would be interesting to see how Ubisoft will adopt Norse mythology into the Assassin's Creed world. We could expect the game to be announced sometime later this year. We may hear more about the game at E3, this June. View the full article
  7. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stunned Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family this week by saying they plan to spend much of their time in N America. Photo: File TORONTO: Canadian taxpayers could be on the hook for millions of dollars a year in security expenses if Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan move there, even part time, as they step away from their royal duties, security experts said. The couple, formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, stunned Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family this week by saying they plan to spend much of their time in North America. While the pair have not said where in North America they planned to reside, many observers pointed to Canada as a logical choice. The couple spent the last six weeks of 2019 in that nation, part of the British Commonwealth of countries that have the queen as their head of state. The Canadian government would likely have a legal obligation to provide them with security because of their royal status, security experts said. “I don’t believe they can refuse the government of Canada’s security,” said Larry Busch, an ex-Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officer who directed security for world leaders including U.S. presidents and the royal family. Read also: Prince Harry, Meghan Markle to step away from royal family in shock move The cost could easily run into the millions of dollars, said Mike Zimet, whose eponymous New York executive security firm has protected clients including US Senator Bernie Sanders and actors Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alec Baldwin. “If they want private protection, then a whole machine needs to be built around them,” he said. The level of security they need would be defined by a threat assessment, said Joe Balz, president of GloProSec Preventative Services, a Toronto-based security company, and an ex-RCMP officer who has worked with the royal family and other heads of state in the past. “There’s always going to be the odd idiot who causes some type of problem,” Balz said, adding that they would be safer in Canada than in the United States, where gun laws are much laxer. Prince Harry and Meghan have said gaining financial autonomy is a key goal, but declined to say whether this extends to the cost of security, stating that their security detail is mandated by the British Home Office. Read also: Meghan Markle, Prince Harry's royal life departure sets the internet on fire They also would need to worry about kidnapping of their son, Archie, said Zimet, who called that threat a “major situation, especially when it comes to terrorists. Kidnap a kid, hold them for ransom, what are the parents going to do?” A poll for Canadian news company found that more than 60 per cent of the 1,515 Canadians surveyed would support the appointment of Prince Harry as governor general, the queen’s representative in Canada, who acts as the head of state on her behalf. The poll was conducted on January 6, two days before the couple announced their plan to move away from their senior royal roles.
  8. On January 4, 2020, Irfan Pathan called it a career after serving as a leading pacer of the Indian cricket team who will always be remembered for his first-over hat-trick against Pakistan during the 2006 Test series in Karachi. He evolved into a dependable batsman for the sake of his team. Out of his comfort zone initially, Pathan became the player on which skipper Sourav Ganguly had the utmost faith in the middle order. Many believe that the decision to transform into an all-rounder, even though not his own, eventually became the reason that would ruin his entire career in the years to come. Pathan was one of the very few cricketers who continued to remain successful even after being dropped from the Indian cricket team. Making his last appearance in an India jersey all the way back in October 2012, Pathan depended on his skills as an excellent analyst of the game and quickly got picked up by sports publications to talk about cricket. He currently works as a commentator and an analyst with a major sports broadcast company and it is safe to say that the beginning of a new year was absolutely the right time to hang his boots and stay in touch with the sport using all the first-hand knowledge he had accumulated for so many years. View this post on Instagram Big day tomorrow for all the guys in the ipl auction... who are your top 5 picks,guys??? #ipl #auction A post shared by Irfan Pathan (@irfanpathan_official) on Dec 18, 2019 at 8:10am PST But the former cricketer now confesses the biggest regret he has had in his career. "People start their career when they are 27-28 and then go on to play till 35. When I was 27, I had taken 301 international wickets, so that was it. That is the only regret I have," said Irfan Pathan in an interview with Star Sports. "A 27-year-old Irfan Pathan, at the peak of his career, should have got more opportunities but it did not happen for whatever reasons. No complaints but looking back, there is regret, " he said. "I knew after 2016 that I am not going to make a comeback when I was the highest run scorer in Mushtaq Ali trophy. I was the best all-rounder and when I spoke to selectors, they were not very happy with my bowling," he added. Even though Irfan Pathan played 29 Tests, 120 ODIs and 24 T20Is for India and claimed 301 wickets, he believes that he should have had more opportunities to represent his country on international and world stages. © Reuters Pure talent for the Men in Blue, Pathan achieved stardom at an early age of 19, which used to be very rare at the time because opportunities like the Indian Premier League (IPL) didn't exist back then. A fierce pacer known for his 'banana swing', many believe the man behind the downfall of his career was the then Indian head coach Greg Chappell, the man who asked Pathan to become an all-rounder. Irfan Pathan could have been another Zaheer Khan or even better but then Greg Chappell happened.. — ð¦ (@AndColorPockeT) January 4, 2020 Focusing more on his batting skills led to the young cricketer compromising on his swing. Out of form, he tried to tweak his bowling action which significantly brought down his pace and his swing but very little came of it. By the time the IPL came into being and Indian cricket boomed, it was too late for Pathan to excel in either of the two sides of the pitch. He couldn't be great either with the ball or the bat. And so, a 24-year-old Irfan Pathan made his last appearance in the longest format of the game in 2008. Even though the cricketer went on to represent India until 2012, the flair that the 19-year-old Vadodara boy had was long gone. © Reuters Having said that in 2017, the former pacer came forward to say that it wasn't Chappell but his injuries that ruined his chances of playing more cricket. “I know lot of people said Greg Chappell ruined my career which is not true. No one can ruin anyone's career. What you need to do, you need to do. You alone are responsible for what you do,” said Pathan during the 2017 edition of the IPL. “When I was dropped from the team, I was unfortunately injured. After that making a comeback was a bit difficult. I don't blame anyone,” he'd said back then. An athlete's life is such. One small decision could change their career for the good or the bad. That's the high risk that comes along with the high reward and players just have to live with it. As far as Irfan Pathan's career is concerned, it was a great one nonetheless. View the full article
  9. Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani. Photo: AFPBAGHDAD: The killings of Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani and a top Iraqi paramilitary chief in a US strike on Baghdad on Friday threaten to drag Iraq into the abyss of regional conflict, analysts warned. The US strike on Baghdad international airport targeted a convoy carrying Soleimani and his top Baghdad-based adviser Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy head of Iraq's powerful Hashed al-Shaabi force. The raid has confirmed the worst fears of many Iraqis: that their homeland will become the main battlefield in a looming conflict between Iran and the United States. Also read: Searches for 'World War 3' spike as world reacts to killing of Iranian general "Iran's strongest cards are in Iraq, and I think that Iraq will pay the price for this," said Fanar Haddad of Singapore University's Middle East Institute. Tensions between the United States and Iran have been rising for months, as the Washington accused Tehran-backed factions of firing rockets on their troops across Iraq and on their embassy in Baghdad. But they have soared over the past week. On December 27, a rocket attack killed a US contractor working in northern Iraq, prompting retaliatory US strikes that killed 25 fighters from Kataeb Hezbollah, a hardline Hashed faction. Angry Hashed supporters laid siege to the US embassy as Washington announced hundreds of new US troops were en route to the region. Path to war?But Washington delivered its most decisive blow yet early on Friday when a volley of strikes hit near Baghdad international airport, leaving two cars torched on the access highway. Iran's Revolutionary Guards confirmed Soleimani was killed in the strike while the Hashed announced Muhandis´s death. With the two dead, the Quds Force — the foreign operations arm of Iran's Guards Corps — has been left decapitated and the Hashed lost its de facto chief, too. Also read: Who was Iran's General Qassem Soleimani? Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed "severe revenge" for the raid and its top security council was meeting to discuss options. Analysts said the outbreak of a wider conflict was looking increasingly likely. "If Iran does need to respond and make a performance out of this, the fear is that there will be something more than just loading rockets at embassies," said Haddad. "It could set Iraq along the path of internal conflict and that´s something Iran can very easily instigate," he said. The nature of the strike is unpredecented because of the seniority of those targeted — making its repercussions hard to picture, said Ramzy Mardini, a researcher at the US Institute of Peace. "The problem with judging what happens next is a problem of imagination. Nobody thought this was in the realm of possibility," he told AFP. "It's likely that all actors on all sides will be playing things by ear in the short term, which is a recipe for miscalculation," said Mardini. 'Heads will roll'Friday's strike had shown that Iran could no longer use its allies in Iraq to carry out attacks against US interests "without risking an American conventional retaliation on Iran," Mardini told AFP. "Plausible deniability has gone out the window." The US had expressed increasing frustration with the escalating rocket attacks on its 5,200 troops in Iraq and on its embassy in Baghdad over the past two months. Also read: Iran and 'free nations of region' to avenge general's killing: Rouhani US forces led the 2003 invasion against then-dictator Saddam Hussein and Washington has worked closely with Iraqi officials and commanders since then. But its influence has waned compared with that of Iran, which carefully crafted personal ties with Iraqi politicians and armed factions, even during Saddam´s reign. Soleimani was the prime example, sweeping into Baghdad regularly to hold meeting with top Iraqi officials during times of turmoil. Ranj Alaaldin, a fellow at the Brookings Institution in Doha, said that would leave Iran with a range of questions for its Iraqi partners. "How did the US know of Soleimani's arrival in Baghdad? Who leaked the intel?" Alaaldin tweeted. "Watch the Iraqi political space. Heads will roll."

  11. Saying that Yuvraj Singh has had a massive impact on Indian cricket would be grossly understating the fact. His exuberant performance in the 2007 T20 World Cup in South Africa and the hallowed manner in which he carried the Indian team to the ultimate cricketing glory in the World Cup in 2011 will forever be etched in our sporting ethos. © Instagram/yuvisofficial Yuvraj has always been a role model for innumerable Indians, both on and off the field. For those of us, who weren't that invested in the sport (yes, such people do exist) it was his dandy-esque and refined style, that caught our attention. © Instagram/yuvisofficial That the Indian cricketing pantheon has been a major source of inspiration for style and suaveness is nothing new. However, when we speak of that one man who has been the most closely followed, it has to be Yuvraj Singh. © Instagram/yuvisofficial And if his recent, 'gruffly groomed' look is anything to go by, we are pretty certain that Yuvraj has no intention to stop now. In fact, we'll go as far as to say that his salt and pepper should be the beard style goal that we all aspire for. © Viral Bhayani The heavyset goatee, coupled with the shortly trimmed sides does look great on Yuvraj, and will be perfect for all kinds of face shapes and men of all kinds of builds, irrespective of whether they are lean, or a little on the heavier side. © Viral Bhayani The beard style, which is actually a hybrid between an unkempt bandholz and short beard is particularly well suited for men with thinning hair. That being said, as with Yuvraj, men with a good head of hair should look incredibly well too. © Viral Bhayani The best thing about this beard style is that it does not need much maintenance, and even men staunchly against expensive and extensive grooming routines can pull this off without much effort. © Viral Bhayani All you'll need for this particular style, is a decent trimmer and some oil. Because it has a scruffy and unkempt aesthetic, it does not need much time, neither does it need anything to be done on a day to day basis. © Viral Bhayani Just trim the beard on your cheeks every 3-5 days, and apply some sort of oil. We recommend something very basic, like coconut oil, but hey, if you're feeling a little fancy, go for a beard oil or olive oil, whatever floats your boat. And don't forget to brush it now and then. That's it. © Viral Bhayani If you have scraggly and uneven, patchy growth, that's even better, as it would add a bit of charm to it. Honestly, this is one style that just about anyone can get done, all by themselves, provided they have the patience. © Viral Bhayani As for Yuvraj Singh, well, he does look swell, doesn't he?

  12. Samsung usually launches a new Galaxy flagship every year in February and we are only months away from the official release of the next Galaxy S series smartphone. Most people would assume that the next smartphone would be called “Galaxy S11”, however it seems like Samsung is going to ditch the annual nomenclature and instead call it the Galaxy S20. © MensXP/Akshay-Bhalla This information comes from renowned Samsung leaker Ice Universe on Twitter who tweeted "Galaxy S20, Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning." Ice Universe has been accurate with leaks in the past and this new naming scheme could turn out to be true given the reasons behind it. It seems like the start of the new decade would also mark the inception of the Galaxy S20. Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning. — Ice universe (@UniverseIce) December 24, 2019 Smartphone companies tend to jump numbers when naming their smartphones as Apple never released an iPhone 9 and instead jumped straight to the iPhone X. Similarly, Samsung also never released the Galaxy Note 6 and jumped to Galaxy Note 7 even though it didn't work according to the plan in the end. © MensXP/Akshay-Bhalla Having said that, skipping to Galaxy S20 might be confusing to many consumers if the messaging is not on point by Samsung. Regardless of what it is called, the Galaxy S11 or S20 will be packed with powerful specifications if the rumours are to be believed. It is rumoured to come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 processor and 5G capabilities. In terms of cameras, the next flagship is expected to come with 108MP primary sensor and other cameras for different modes. Sooner or later, these specifications will be confirmed when the smartphone launches in February. It remains to be seen whether Samsung will call it the Galaxy S11 or Galaxy S20.

  13. It hasn't been that long since Samsung launched its first folding phone, the Galaxy Fold. It was plagued with a lot of issues at first, but Samsung did the right thing by delaying the launch to fix them. While the original Galaxy Fold was received well in the market after getting fixed, it looks like Samsung has decided to switch things up a bit. The company appears to have cooked a new design, and it looks similar to the classic RAZR phone. Here, take a look - In Chinese social media, Samsung's next-generation Galaxy Fold phone was leaked. Source: @ ç å¥ å® pic.twitter.com/f69FAbYGxX — Ice universe (@UniverseIce) December 19, 2019 The images of the new foldable phone that you see above, were spotted on Chinese social media. There's no confirmation whether these are Samsung phones, but the UI quite evidently says that it's a Samsung-made phone indeed. Even then, we don't know if these phones will actually make it to the market as the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, if at all they ever release. For all we know, it could just a prototype device or even worse, a fake unit. Anyway, these are the images we have, for now, so we can't really tell for sure. © Twitter/ @UniverseIce As you can see, the phone in the pictures only has two primary cameras. That's less than what we've been seeing on the flagship phones these days. We even have phones with five cameras, so that's something to make a note of. But it's possible that one of them could be a 108MP sensor, although there's no way to confirm that either. If the reports are something to go by, then the next Galaxy Fold phone will be much more affordable than the one they launched earlier this year. We're looking at prices that are less than half of what the original Galaxy Fold launched at, so it's could be a really good phone. © Reuters It'll be an interesting year for Samsung as the company has a lot planned for 2020. They'll kickstart things with the Galaxy S11 at the beginning of the year, and we'll see what else they have in store for us. View the full article
  14. Rooney believes he can still make an impact in the Premier League. Photo: AFPWayne Rooney believes he could still make an impact in the Premier League as the former Manchester United star targets a return to the top-flight with Derby.Rooney will resume his career in England next month after joining second-tier Derby as player-coach from MLS side DC United.The 34-year-old striker will work as an assistant to Rams boss Phillip Coco, with promotion back to the top flight the aim as he tries to prove he can still compete with the sport´s elite even in the twilight of his career."I still felt I could do it when I was at Everton, but other people made their decisions on that," Rooney was quoted as saying in the British media on Sunday."Now my ambition is to get Derby back in the Premier League and hopefully play my part there for them."Ryan Giggs was able to play into his late thirties in the Premier League and Gareth Barry says he wants to do it at 40."It´s important to understand football. It is not all about running round, it is about using your head to play the game."Sometimes that gets lost, because you don't score as many goals or whatever. Given the right team around me, then I could still play in the Premier League."The two teams I played for in the Premier League were Manchester United and Everton. I am at Derby now, and hopefully we can get there with them."Former England captain Rooney, whose tally of 208 Premier League goals is bettered only by Alan Shearer, went to America in June last year after leaving first club Everton, whom he re-joined from United following a 13-year stay at Old Trafford.Derby are 16th in the Championship, nine points off the play-off places after Saturday´s 1-0 loss to Millwall.
  15. Taylor Swift re-recording her past hits could add to her troubles: reportTaylor Swift after having a bumpy year with her guns pointed towards her ex-record label Big Machine Label Group, is now planning to re-record her hits. The Bad Blood hit maker, who is contractually authorized to re-record her greatest hits and has full plans of doing so, may face some challenges after the process rolls out. In conversation with the Rolling Stone, Glenn Tilbrook, front man of acclaimed musical group Squeeze, who went through the same process gave his advice to the Love Story singer.“My advice to Taylor Swift is that it takes an awful lot of time, trouble, and money to [re-record hits faithfully], and I would question what the intended outcome would be. If she does it and gets away with it, of course, I support her efforts 100 percent,” he said. Founder of Better Noise Music, Allen Kovac gave his take on the fiasco by sharing an example of Mötley Crüe, that he manages, purchasing his masters from label Elektra. “[Swift] already made the decision to move on [from Big Machine]. The minute she did that, she lost her leverage. . . . Something broke down. She didn’t get the kind of advice that would allow her to have a win-win,” he said. He further said that when Mötley Crüe sat down to negotiate with Elektra’s then-head Sylvia Rhone, they agreed on a deal akin to the one Swift was offered by her ex-label.“When Sylvia Rhone decided not to believe in the band, I said, ‘Well, instead of paying them an advance of eight figures [for future recordings], you keep that money — we’ll take $2 million [instead], and we’ll take all the masters.’ That’s a deal; that’s a transaction,” he said. “What’s Taylor Swift’s transaction? Is she saying, ‘I’ll give you six more albums, let’s split it?’ Or did she just want her masters back because she’s Taylor Swift? Why does someone who invested in her as a teenager have to just give them to her? Even the Beatles don’t own their masters,” he added. “When you re-record, do you ever capture that same atmosphere? Do you have the same band, the same studio? What is it you’re trying to do — say to your fans, ‘Don’t listen to the music you already love’? I don’t know fans like that… If you could show me [one artist for whom] it’s worked out well, I’d say it’s a great idea and everyone should do it; I just haven’t seen any evidence of that,” he said further.
  16. 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

  19. The PlayStation 5 may use cartridges. Well, it's either that or we think Sony is working on a Nintendo Switch competitor that'll use cartridges. Why? Because Sony has filed a new patent at the Instituto Nacional de Propriedade Industrial (INPI) in Brazil for 'PlayStation Cartridge'. As spotted by the Dutch website LetsGoDigital, the patented design of the cartridge was realised by Yujin Morisawa, the Senior Art Director of Corporate Design at Sony Interactive Entertainment. From the looks of it, it looks like a simple cartridge, so we can't exactly tell what could it be for. © LetsGoDigital Unless Sony decided to have a change of heart about a PlayStation Vita successor, we don't seem to have an answer for this cartridge. We say that because we already know the PlayStation 5 will use Blu-ray discs. And if it's not a PlayStation Vita successor, then could it be a hybrid console/ handheld device like the Nintendo Switch? A few people also noted that the patented cartridges could be for Sony's Toio line of kid's toys. Back in 2018, Sony filed a similar cartridge patent resulting in rampant speculation, but it turned to be Sony's line of kids' toys. So this could very well be one of those patents and we may be freaking out for no reason. © LetsGoDigital It's also entirely possible that the game cartridge is for the PlayStation line of hardware, maybe PlayStation VR 2. Or it could be used by the PS5 itself as expandable memory. Who knows? The best we can do right now is speculate and wait for some sort of an official announcement.

  22. While some of us do whatever we can to save street dogs, Nepal goes a step further and celebrates them though a festival. Yes, that's right! A five day festival called 'Kukoor Tihar' (festival of dogs) has begun this week and our Diwali, also Sunday, marked the second day of the festival. The entire festival is dedicated to dogs and honouring their presence and I think it's time we learn a thing or two from the Nepalese. (BCCL) India is quite apathetic towards animals in general and we don't have the empathy required to give our street animals or even our wildlife a second thought. Case in point, Diwali this year, where after the government made it mandatory to not burst crackers before 8pm and after 10pm, numerous people still indulged in it, risking the safety of street dogs around them. Apart from the harmful effects fireworks bring to the environment, they're also both physically and psychologically detrimental towards animals, especially street dogs who live on roads. But people didn't care much about their presence and after incessant fireworks on Diwali night, many dogs were left shivering out of fear. (c)Nepal Travel Adventure Nepal, on the other hand, celebrate their dogs in a wholesome way. In fact, they worship their dogs during the Tihar festival, while garlanding them, putting a tikka on them and giving them food. For the Nepalese, dogs are sacrosanct because of religious purposes. They happen to believe dogs are messengers of Yamraj (the God of death) and the ceremony conducted for the dogs is an attempt to appease the God. Both street dogs and pets become a part of the festival and have an entire week dedicated to them. Here's a glimpse from the festival: Kayle, bcause calling him 'kaley' could be racist!? He's the grandson of kuchu & still lives with us. Has his bih living with us too, Sweety. She might be due in few months. His mom aka Kuchu's daughter 'Motie' went poila after giving birth to Kayle.... he balls nmw.#kukurtihar pic.twitter.com/Aju3A3JEQq — pukay (@pukusubedy) October 27, 2019 Acknowledging all the joy she gives in our life â¤ï¸#kukurtihar #humanbestfriend pic.twitter.com/NIxai3lvqG — Priyanka Budhathoki (@bpriyanka111) October 27, 2019 Kukur Tihar is tommorow.

Even though cows are worshipped and cared for religious and economical purposes, we should develop a sense of empathy towards the four legged and give them equal respect and admiration. Nepal is a good example of the same and maybe we can learn how to be more empathetic towards animals from them. View the full article
  23. Jim Sarbh has convinced us that he can give his contemporary actors a run for their money with his intense acting. From a terrorist who gave us chills in Neerja to the spunky 'Adil' in Made In Heaven, he has proved that he is indeed a brilliant actor. The 32-year-old actor is someone who also loves offbeat projects like starring in Prateek Kuhad's cold/mess music video. Interestingly, his unconventional choice of projects also translates to the way he styles himself for events. It is an established fact that the actor has the quirkiest dress sense in Bollywood. If there's someone other than Ranveer Singh who can easily pull-off a lehenga, it's definitely Jim. Don't believe us? Just go to his Instagram profile to check the most outlandish outfits and styles that he's pulled off this year. From gender-fluid fashion to absurd silhouettes, he's tried them all. This brings us to a very intriguing outfit that he wore at a recent event. He donned a very loose blazer and pants that were clearly gender-fluid with high neck underneath the blazer. However, what was fascinating about this outfit was the fact that the blazer was so loose that two people could easily fit in them. Take a look: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani In fact, Jim's blazer had so much room in it, that he ended up taking it off eventually. Well, we understand why. With such a quirky jacket, maybe it's difficult to wear it for longer durations which is why probably he took breaks in the middle. Let us know what do you guys think in the comments section below.
  24. 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
  25. It's no secret that Apple has been rumoured to be working on the next iteration of the AirPods. It was reported earlier that the new AirPods will launch sometime next year. Now, however it seems like it will come sooner than that. The new AirPods are rumoured to be called the AirPods Pro and will have a noise-cancelling feature as reported earlier. © SlashLeaks A new report by China Economic Daily suggests that Apple will be releasing the AirPods Pro later this month. It is expected to cost $260 (~Rs 18,500) and will also have basic water resistance for gym use. Earlier, the design of the upcoming AirPods was leaked and it shows that the overall design language will remain the same with subtle changes. It was also disclosed in the iOS 13.2 beta and the same update also had a tutorial about how users can adjust the noise cancellation on the new AirPods. © Twitter/RieplhuberGD The new AirPods will compete with Amazon's newly announced Echo Buds and the upcoming Pixel Buds. The noise cancellation feature on truly wireless earphones is expected to work similarly to the Sony WF- 1000XM3. It will adapt the sound in the earphones according to your surroundings and will block out ambient noise when needed. Sony uses its own 'Headphones' app to enable the feature and it will be interesting to see how Apple will implement its version of noise cancellation on the AirPods Pro. Of course, there is no certainty whether the earphones will launch later this month even though there are have been rumours of Apple hosting an event in October. Having said that, we are now approaching the end of the month and it looks highly unlikely. Source: China Economic Daily
