  1. Finally, the wait for 'Game of Thrones' season 8 premiere is over and most of us have already witnessed what goes on ahead in the series. If you haven't seen the episode yet (and I wonder why), then let me warn you this article contains heavy spoilers and you may want to consider reading it. The first episode of season 8 has everything elemental. From Jon Snow's return home, with the queen by his side, to infamous dragon rides across Winterfell, everything was placed in a manner that was in accordance from one revelation to another. The revelations made may have been small in gravity for now, but they were very impactful to further build the story and the characters. © HBO The most obvious element of episode 1 were the string of dysfunctional family reunions that took place, once Jon entered Winterfell with his troop. Some were very overwhelming (like imagine seeing your brother after seven years), while some were just oddly strange. Here's a list of the most looked-forward to reunions in season 8, episode 1 of 'Game of Thrones'. (1) Jon Snow & Arya Stark © HBO This was one of the most overwhelming parts of the episode, at least for me. When Jon was standing in front of the Weirwood tree, Arya sneaked up from behind and gave him a hug. It hits you the most when you realise the last time the two saw each other. It was before Jon left for the wall and handed Arya her sword, Needle. This time around when he noticed Needle on her, he asked her if she's ever used it and she said 'once or twice'. Well, it's only time till Jon finds out how many times Arya has actually used Needle. (2) Jon Snow & Bran Stark © HBO Jon and Bran last met before Jon left for the wall and at the time Bran was on bed rest, recovering from his fatal fall. Jon wasn't allowed to spend sufficient time with him before leaving as his mother, Catelyn Stark didn't allow Jon the time. So you can only imagine the emotion that went into this reunion! When Jon saw Bran, he went straight for his forehead to kiss it but realised the reunion was stunted considering Bran is now the Three-Eyed-Raven. Even so, we could see Bran was happy to see Jon and also shared his fair warning about the White-Walkers marching to Winterfell. (3) Arya Stark & Gendry © HBO The last time the two were seen together in season 3 were when they joined the 'Brotherhood', before Gendry was taken by Melisandre to Stannis Baratheon. But this reunion was playful and flirtatious and both seemed rather content and happy to find each other alive. Arya also asked Gendry to make a weapon for her and I think it's the most romantic thing an assassin can ask her crush to make, especially if he happens to be a blacksmith. We're not sure yet what the weapon entails but we do know it has two pointy-ends, according to the design Arya handed over to Gendry. According to GoT's weapon master, Tommy Dunne, there's one creation in season 8, which is an absolute showstopper and I wonder if it's the weapon Gendry makes for Arya. (4) Arya Stark & Sandor Clegane aka The Hound © HBO Arya and The Hound have had a rather love-hate relationship but by the looks of it, The Hound is glad to see Arya alive and that's what he tells her too- "You're a cold hard bitch, aren't you? Guess, that's why you're still alive". The last time the two were seen together was in season 4, when a duel between The Hound and Brienne of Tarth left the Hound completely wounded. Arya escaped his companionship soon after, leaving him to die. (5) Jon Snow & Samwell Tarly © HBO With great difficulties, after escaping the Citadel, Samwell, Gilly and Little Sam come to Winterfell to fight for Snow. Sam learns about the death of his father and his brother by the hands of the queen and disappointed and dejected, he runs in to Jon, who he last saw at the Night's Watch. Their reunion is the most pivotal part of the show, as Sam reveals Jon's true identity, that he's not Ned Stark's son and neither is he a bastard. He is in fact Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen's legitimate child and the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. This scene surely gave us goosebumps! (6) Sansa Stark & Tyrion Lannister © HBO This is one of the most rewarding reunions in the episode as it was bound to happen and Tyrion had to see how Sansa has actually evolved. And he does notice that and states "I underestimated you". The two were last seen in season 4, at the memorable wedding of Joffrey with Margaery Tyrell, after which Sansa fled with Littelfinger. Their conversation is short-lived in this episode but quite impactful. It tells us Sansa has truly evolved and that she knows Cersei better than anyone else. Even her own brother. That's because while Tyrion is convinced Cersei is on their side and that the Lannister army will march to Winterfell, Sansa is well aware of her schemes and knows for certain Cersei won't do such a thing as she has her own motives and she tells Tyrion the same. (7) Yara Greyjoy & Theon Grejoy © HBO Their reunion wasn't an elaborate deal but it was surely something to look forward to. When Theon arrives to rescue Yara from Euron Greyjoy's clutches, she's relieved to see him alive but also gives him a mighty head-butt (because he abandoned her in the past), before giving him her hand to stand up again. The two flee and head towards the Iron Islands, a definite place where she can stand guard for the folks in the North, as the White-Walkers supposedly can never reach the Iron Islands. She figures Theon wants to go back to Winterfell and assist Snow in the war and she tells him to do just that. (8) Jaime Lannister & Bran Stark © HBO Leaving the best for the last, this one reunion was the most superimposing and anticipated one. The two obviously met in season one, where Bran, a little boy climbed one of the towers of Winterfell to find Jaime & Cersei in a, well, a compromising position. Fear of their relationship being revealed to the rest of the family, Jaime pushed Bran down the tower, making him loose both his legs. I am not sure what the two will even talk about, or if they ever will, but I have a feeling Bran will tell Jaime he isn't that little boy anymore and that he's the Three-Eyed-Raven and that it probably doesn't matter, hopefully forgiving Jaime?! Well, Jaime's character has been the most evolving one out of the lot, so maybe he should be forgiven. So, there you go! 8 most endearing, overwhelming yet strange reunions in the first episode of the final season. We're awaiting some more reunions by the second episode, namely Jon and the Night King. But we're not going to go more in to that. For now, let's just take a week or less to digest this episode first!
  2. If you are a fan of some long shots that give the ball-collectors present in the stands a literal run for their money, then you have to appreciate the knock played by the West Indies cricketer and interim Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Kieron Pollard in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Ravichandran Ashwin's Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). His thunderous innings which included a 83-run-barrage in just 31 balls with 10 humongous sixes and three fours successfully delivered on the expectations of all of 33,000 MI fans present at the Wankhede Stadium and millions watching at home. Hardik: Kieron Pollard is a legend. Only one man could've done this.#OneFamily #CricketMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #MIvKXIP pic.twitter.com/YcUKauYTWv — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) April 10, 2019 When the 6'5'' tall beast of an athlete had stepped in, MI's chances of winning seemed to be extremely slim as they had to score 142 runs in just 70 balls. However, when the captain got dismissed by getting caught out by David Miller off of an Ankit Rajpoot delivery in the final over, MI had to make only 4 runs off 4 balls. Such was the impact of Pollard's bat. Ashwin and the rest of the bowlers of Kings XI tried every single trick from their book but could not shake the batsman's concentration. Hardus Viljoen tried to get under Pollard's skin by walking up to him and checking for a ball's print on his shoulder but couldn't. Rajpoot himself tried to irk the veteran ahead of the final over when he took a long run-up down the ground only to stop in the middle with a smile on his face followed by a wink directed across the pitch to the man. In return, Pollard sent his delivery (which turned out to be a 'no-ball') for a six and a four in the following free-hit delivery. Things became so frustrating for the losing skipper that he even tried a different bowling action after Pollard swung for another maximum in the previous ball. Now, despite having a decent IPL season, Ashwin has been in the news for his odd behaviour on the field. Earlier being thrashed for 'mankading' Rajasthan Royals' batter Jos Buttler and getting a photo of his face shredded by Buttler's English teammate James Anderson for the same, later on. So when the Chennai-born all-rounder changed the way he bowls, the cricketing world wanted to know what's up: What is wrong with Ashwin! He has 3 actions to bowl now. — Miraj. (@MirajMUFC) April 10, 2019 Pollard's reaction changed Ashwin's action #IPL2019 #MIvsKXIP — Vivek (@say2vivekkk) April 10, 2019 What type of action was this by Ashwin to Pollard?ð#MIvKXIP pic.twitter.com/aIA4x9YvPK — Yash (@imyash19) April 10, 2019 Ravi Ashwin trying different type of actions (including round arm) and deliveries in order to bring variations. Good thought but I think he is trying to hard. #IPL2019 #MIvKXIP — Arpit Rastogi (@arptrastogi) April 11, 2019 What kind of an action was that from Ashwin? #MIvKXIP — Satish Pandey (@SatishKTM) April 10, 2019 Ravi Ashwin does it again can't keep him out of action#MIvKXIP #MIvsKXIP — SAMRAAT (@DynamiteXI) April 10, 2019 More action variations than bowl variations for Ashwin tonight. #MIvKXIP — Zen Master (@Wee_shal) April 10, 2019 #Ashwin just did a Shoaib Akhtar action.

  3. In early January 2019, it was announced that a biopic on our Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in the works. It was also revealed that actor Vivek Oberoi would be seen essaying the titular role in the film titled 'PM Narendra Modi'. 'PM Narendra Modi' biopic will narrate PM Modi's journey from his humble beginnings, to his rise as the Prime Minister of India, and it has been reported that the film will be released in 23 Indian languages. © Legend Global Studio The makers of the film recently released the 'PM Narendra Modi' trailer and all throughout the trailer launch, the makers and actors of the biopic had just one thing to say, “Modi hai, toh mumkin hai”. While it is understood that the movie traces PM Modi's journey, the trailer also gives us an insight into more private and not-so-public aspects of PM Modi that a lot of us might be unaware of. Whitewashing or not, the trailer did do a fine job of capturing our complete attention and left us craving for the complete picture. © Legend Global Studio Here are the 5 most important moments from 'PM Narendra Modi' trailer: 1. 'PM Narendra Modi' trailer gave us a glimpse into PM Modi's childhood, his tryst with selling tea, his stand on patriotism, his days during RSS training, as well as the time when he decided to leave everything behind and become a sanyasi in order to learn the meaning of life and his purpose. © Legend Global Studio 2. The trailer nicely follows the transition of Modi from his years of association with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh as a Sevak, his extensive tenure as Gujarat CM and moving on to BJP's clean swipe during the Lok Sabha elections in 2014. There is a promise of deeper insights in those recreations. 3. 'PM Narendra Modi' trailer also touches upon one of the most sensational aspects of PM Modi's life - the 2002 Gujarat riots. He is shown to be rescuing Muslims and taking personal initiatives related to the 2002 attack on the Akshardham temple. © Legend Global Studio 4. PM Modi's version of nationalism is loud and clear in the trailer, wherein at one point it is shown that he places the nation above any religion, as he salutes the Indian flag. 5. The trailer presents PM Modi's stand against terrorism pretty clearly and it finds a voice in the trailer more than once. The trailer also tries to bring in an element of gender equality when we hear PM Modi say, “jab tak iss desh ki mahilayen majboor hain, yeh desh kabhi majboot nahi ho sakta.” © Legend Global Studio 'PM Narendra Modi' directed by Omung Kumar of 'Mary Kom' and 'Sarbjit' fame will release on April 5, just a week before the beginning of the General Elections on April 11.
  4. If there is one English Premier League side that has underachieved in Europe, it has to be Arsenal. The North London club claims 'London Is Red' but has so far, failed to make the same statement in Europe. Currently competing in UEFA's second-tier competition- Europa League, Arsenal had a fairly easy group stage run, winning five and drawing one out of their six matches. The Gunners were confident of their chances for qualification in Round-Of-16 when they were drawn against the Belarusian side, BATE Borisov. But last night turned out to be a different story, as BATE beat Arsenal 1-0 after Stanislaw Drahun scored with a header right at the stroke of halftime. Though Arsenal came close to scoring on various occasions, they failed to make their chances pay. This shocking defeat came against a team that hasn't even kicked a ball since December 6. All this and Alexander Lacazette's red card in the closing stages of the game sent Arsenal fans into a frenzy, leading to some hilarious Twitter reactions Arsenal Fan Tv & Chill #Arsenal fan tv tonight be likeððððð¥ð¥ð¥ #BateArsenal #emeryout pic.twitter.com/bnq6HbeTmO — UnitedTrinity68 (@UnitedTrinity68) February 14, 2019 Wiki-Edits Are So Underrated Arsenal losing to a factory club.

  5. Fortnite has been dominating the gaming world and is probably the most successful free-to-play game in gaming history. The game managed to make $2.8 billion in revenue in 2018 and it doesn't seem to die out in popularity soon. The Battle Royale genre was made popular by PUBG and the game has held its own when it comes to earnings. © Blue Hole 2018 was a huge year for PUBG and according to Superdata figures, the game made over $1 billion in revenue last year. That made PUBG the highest grossing paid game in 2018 and the earnings don't even include money made from PUBG mobile. If we take earnings from PUBG mobile into consideration, it is probably the second highest grossing game right behind Fortnite. Here's the full list of both free-to-play and paid games ranked according to their earnings: Top Free-to-play Games Fortnite, Epic Games - $2.4 billion Dungeon Fighter Online, Nexon - $1.5 billion League of Legends, Riot Games, Tencent - $1.4 billion Pokemon GO, Niantic - $1.3 billion Crossfire, Neowiz Games - $1.3 billion Honour of Kings, Tencent - $1.3 billion Fate/Grand Order, Aniplex - $1.2 billion Candy Crush Saga, King, Activision Blizzard - $1.1 billion Monster Strike, Mixi - $1.0 billion Clash Royale, Supercell, Tencent - $0.9 billion Top Paid Games PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Bluehole - $1.028 billion FIFA 18, Electronic Arts - $790 million Grand Theft Auto V, Take-Two Interactive - $628 million Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, Activision Blizzard - $612 million Red Dead Redemption 2, Take-Two Interactive - $516 million Call of Duty: WWII, Activision Blizzard - $506 million FIFA 19, Electronic Arts - $482 million Monster Hunter: World, Capcom - $467 million Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft - $440 million Overwatch, Activision Blizzard - $429 million PUBG has been continually losing players after it peaked with 3 million concurrent players worldwide however it still ended up being the top selling and most-played game on steam. Considering how Fortnite has been destroying everything in its path, it's impressive to see the game earn this kind of figures. © MensXP The mobile version of the game has become more popular thanks to its popularity in India and other regions. The mobile version earned $32.5 million in November 2018 alone and it seems like the popularity of the game will only seem to rise. It's not only the mobile version, the game saw a sudden rise in concurrent players on Steam I.e. 1 million players in December 2018. This may have been due to Blue Hole's effort to purge hackers that initially led to the game's stagnant growth. It would be interesting to see how PUBG will fare against Fortnite in 2019 and whether it would be able to rake in similar revenue numbers. Still, it was reassuring to see PUBG hold it's own against a juggernaut like Fortnite. Source: Forbes
  6. NVIDIA launched a brand new GPU for users who are budget conscious but still want to get the best experience for that price, and AMD, just days after, announced its new chip that will compete directly with the RTX 2080. © AMD In a roundtable attended by Gizmodo, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang laughed off the competition and described AMD's announcement as “underwhelming”. He claimed that the RTX 2080 will “crush” AMD's Radeon VII in benchmarks. “The performance is lousy,” said Huang, referring to AMD's latest GPU, Radeon 7. © AMD NVIDIA introduced a ray-tracing to their new GPUs and you can read all about it here. The technology has been developed over the past ten years in collaboration with Microsoft and game developers. You can read our review of the RTX 2080 and about its performance here. In our tests, the RTX 2080 performed extremely well with certain games and you can see our results below: © MensXP Ray tracing basically traces light in real-time that basically results in better textures, lighting effects, reflections and accurate shadows. AMD's latest GPU does not support this technology at the moment and the company claims it is 25 per cent more powerful than the previous generations. When asked, AMD CEO Lisa Su about Jensen's comments, Su responded, "What I would say is that we're very excited about Radeon VII, and I would probably suggest that he hasn't seen it yet." So, I guess we'll have to wait a few more weeks to see how things shake out with final hardware and drivers, and independent performance testing.
  7. It's official, PUBG's exclusive console deal with Xbox is now coming to an end and the game will finally be available on PlayStation 4 from December 7th. The game will be priced at $30 (Approx Rs 2,100) on PS4 while other versions such as the “survivor's edition” and “champion's edition” will retail for $50 (Approx Rs 3,300) and $60 (Approx Rs 4,328) respectively. © MensXP The special edition versions will include G-coin and other in-game rewards. The game is now officially available for Pre-order on PlayStation Network starting today. There were several leaks regarding PUBG's launch on the PS4 as it appeared on an Amazon listing earlier this month. The PlayStation version will include access to Erangel, Miramar, and Snhok maps. The game will have all features on the PlayStation version one can find in the PC and Xbox version. If you own a PS4 Pro, PUBG will also include support for HDR. © PUBG PUBG was recently added to Xbox's gamepass subscription which makes it more accessible for users on the platform. Microsoft had an exclusivity deal wit PUBG for a year which has now come to an end. “We're excited to expand our PUBG service and introduce new communities to our Battle Royale game,” says Changhan Kim, CEO of PUBG Corp. “PlayStation has developed an amazing community of passionate gamers and we can't wait to join them this holiday season.” If you are interested in seeing the trailer for PUBG on PlayStation, you can watch it below:
  8. Okay, let's be real, people were excited for the movie 'Venom' but not that excited. Even the trailers didn't help with building up the hype and that's quite unfortunate, to be honest. Actually, the most I've heard about the movie was when everyone was thirsting after Venom. Yes, the internet is a weird place. But, even though Tom Hardy was successful in making everyone horny in his alien space suit, he still wasn't able to save the movie, and the first reactions of 'Venom' are proving just that. Just a disclaimer, there are no spoilers ahead, just tweets by people who've already seen the movie and who are talking about it without giving away any plot points. So, it's like 14 years too late? Social embargo for #Venom is up. I talk about this a lot in my review but this is a movie that somehow slipped through a wormhole from 2004. That's my biggest take. It's a movie that spilled from the pre-MCU era through a crack in time and space. — The Mothmegð NYCC (@rustypolished) October 2, 2018 Well, this isn't totally negative. Action-sequences and Eddie and Venom's odd relationship are the highlights of #Venom but if Sony wants to move forward with a universe, it needs to just keep the few parts that work and scrap the large portion which does t. — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) October 2, 2018 Poor Michelle Williams. She did the best she could with what she was given, I think. https://t.co/fyK1gsmTvo — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) October 2, 2018 Finally, a good reaction! So #Venom. I went in fearing the worst, BUT I actually liked it quite a bit more than I thought I would. I still wish it was rated R, but it seems like they set up something to cross over into Spider-Man's movies, and it was funnier than I imagined. — ð»ashleyð (@AshleyEsqueda) October 2, 2018 And, we're back. Sorry to say that #Venom is pretty much a complete failure - a tonal mess that feels 15 years old, ignoring the storytelling strides that the superhero genre has made in recent years. A few fun Venom-centric moments aside, it has nearly nothing to offer. Don't get your hopes up. — Tom Horrorgensen (@Tom_Jorgensen) October 2, 2018 This is harsh. In regards to #Venom, I haven't felt that way walking out of a superhero movie since Green Lantern. — Joshua Yehlblazer (@JoshuaYehl) October 3, 2018 So, Tom Hardy is the saving grace? @JimmytotheO had a good time with @VenomMovie. While it has its flaws, he calls it “fast paced, funny and sometimes thrilling...” Plus “Tom Hardy is pretty phenomenal.” Full review soon! pic.twitter.com/CKYdLPRyAL — JoBlo.com (@joblocom) October 2, 2018 So much sarcasm, love it! You mean to tell me a movie about a Spider-Man villain without Spider-Man and made outside the context of the Marvel Universe simply as a money grab isn't good? Stunning. #venom — Robin Lundberg (@robinlundberg) October 2, 2018 I haven't even seen the movie, but I totally get her point. It's...not a complete disaster? At least I was never mad watching it? But it is an excruciatingly surreal experience. The humor, the story beats, everything right down to the Eminem theme song feels like it emerged Kimmy Schmidt style from a sealed off early 00s bunker. — The Mothmegð NYCC (@rustypolished) October 2, 2018 Well, after all, it is Tom Hardy. Tom Hardy's performance in #Venom is either Johnny Depp in the first PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN or Chris Klein in STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI. Either way, it's not boring. — Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 2, 2018 Very neutral. Not sure if Tom Hardy's weirdness sabotaged #Venom or saved it, but it has a self-aware cartoonishness, especially in its latter half. It's not "good," but it's better than expected. Doesn't feel like an R-rated film, am guessing the deleted 40min is just Hardy clowning around. — Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 2, 2018 Almost every review summed up in one sentence – “It wasn't as bad as I expected it to be.” #Venom wasn't as bad as everyone was saying it was going to be. Tom Hardy is and always will be a great actor, and I laughed a lot — but I'm not sure whether that was intentional or not. Post-credit scene is 𥠗 Beatrice Verhoeven (@bverhoev) October 2, 2018 The first person who liked it a lot. #Venom was only the best superhero movie I've seen in along while. It's refreshing to see a superhero film that wasn't bogged down by years of movies and characters. Def a worth see. Sony really gave it their all. — Aaron- Certified Rotten (@Bizarnage) October 2, 2018 Okay then. Significant chunks of #Venom don't work *at all* but there is some serious charm to the Eddie/Venom relationship. Not sure I had the intended reactions to some scenes but fun is fun - even when it's totally ridiculous, right? It's too bad they didn't go for the R rating though. — Deweystein's Monster (@PNemiroff) October 2, 2018 Okay, this is my favourite tweet from all of these. #Venom is like a buddy comedy in which one of the buddies has to prevent the other from biting people's heads off, which is another way of saying I liked it. — Michael Nordine (@slowbeard) October 2, 2018
  9. Horror movies are supposed to scare the sh*t out of you, but Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao are coming out with a scary movie that will leave you rolling on the floor laughing. The movie is 'Stree' and thanks to the recently released trailer, we've already seen a glimpse of how brilliant it is going to be. Maddock Films If Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao didn't entice us enough to go and watch this horror-comedy, Kriti Sanon with her on-screen skeleton boyfriend and Badshah have further intrigued us all with their 'Aao Kabhi Haveli Pe' invite. Maddock Films If 'Aao Kabhi Haveli Pe' doesn't ring a bell to you, trust me you don't deserve to be on social media and might as well start using owls for communication. YouTube It was one of the most viral memes for most part of 2017 and early 2018, and the makers tried to cash in on the same meme by creating a whole song on it with a twist of spooky romance between Kriti and a skeleton. Maddock Films It's a peppy dance number by Nikhita Gandhi, Badshah and Sachin-Jigar, and begins with Kriti as a corpse who suddenly becomes all glamorous after swiping right and matching with a skeleton on a dating app. Maddock Films She invites him to the haveli for a romantic date and soon Rajkummar and Badshah join in too. Honestly, this song is fine but Amrish Puri's 'Aao Kabhi Haveli Pe' invite was and will forever be the most iconic thing ever. 'Stree' is a movie about a witch who preys on male villagers at the same time every year during a particular time. The movie is expected to release on August 31.
  10. Xiaomi has officially confirmed today that it will be bringing the Pocophone lineup in India soon. It has long been rumoured that the company is working on a new branding, POCO, that will concentrate on premium phones. Just yesterday, Xiaomi launched the much anticipated Mi A2 in India. Xiaomi India's Lead Product Manager, Jai Mani, confirmed the upcoming launch of POCO on Twitter and everyone is excited to see what the company will be launching. This pretty much confirms that Xiaomi is planning to launch the new series in India. Today is a special day. I'm excited to start sharing more about the new project I've been working on. Wish me luck! @IndiaPOCO @GlobalPocophone pic.twitter.com/tZcAUjmgI5 — Jai Mani (@jaimani) August 9, 2018 The Pocophone F1 has been leaked multiple times in the past and is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor along with at least 6GB of RAM. The leaks also suggest the phone will have a metallic build along with a notched display. The phone also has liquid-cooling technology along with a massive 4000mAh battery that supports Quick Charge. On the front, it will sport a 6-inch display and the rear is expected to have a 12+5-megapixel dual camera setup. The front camera will be a 20-megapixel shooter and have AI-powered features like the portrait mode. © SlashLeaks The handset is said to be equipped with 6GB of RAM, 64GB storage, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. It's likely to come pre-loaded with Android Oreo-based MIUI 9.0. However, the exact information regarding the POCO range of smartphones hasn't been officially confirmed yet. Leaks have also confirmed that the phone will sport a USB-C port along with the headphone jack. © SlashLeaks The device will be competing against the recently launched ASUS Zenfone 5Z, OnePlus 6 and Huawei's Nova 3. While the midrange segment has always been very competitive in India, the last few months have seen a rise in top-tier devices as well. India is a huge market for Xiaomi, hence it comes as no surprise that the new POCO branding will be unveiled first here. This won't be the first time Xiaomi has started a sub-brand though, it already runs the BlackShark branding in China for gaming phones and also has Amazfit for smartwatches. What do you think about the new lineup that Xiaomi is bringing to India? Let us know in the comments section below!
  11. The first time we ever heard about a Harley Davidson electric motorcycle was way back in 2014 and since then it has been anticipated to debut soon. The project was dubbed as 'Project LiveWire' and has since got some design changes and will be one of the very few electric bikes to launch next year. © Harley Davidson The news comes from Harley-Davidson's future strategy to inspire the next generation of bikers. "The LiveWire will be the first bike that will have a no-clutch 'twist and go' system which has been designed to establish the company as the leader in the electrification of the sport," wrote the company in a press release. Of course, the images released by Harley Davidson is only a prototype and is not for sale yet. © Harley Davidson Since it is a prototype, it may undergo a few changes and have different features on the final outcome. The company is also working on two other electric bike models — one resembles a dirt-bike while the other looks more like a city commuter version. Both electric versions of the bike are expected to launch sometime in 2022. © Harley Davidson The company will continue to work on traditional non-electric bikes and the company plans to launch its first adventure touring model called the “the Pan America 1250” in 2020. The company will also be looking to launch a 975cc StreetFighter model for 2020. It seems like Harley Davidson has been busy with updating its current lineup as a "stripped down” styled motorcycle is also expected to launch by 2021 that will have 1250cc of power.
  12. Tata Nano was an ambitious project kickstarted by the Chairman of the Tata Group, Ratan Tata. Ten years back when it was launched, everyone's eyes were on the "cheapest car" in the world and how it brings about a change for the Indian middle-class. Fast forward today, the dream is up in smokes as Tata Motors has decided to end the production of the Nano due to poor sales. While India is a developing market and automobile sales have been increasing steadily, the Nano just couldn't find a customer base for itself. The company produced only one unit in the month of June compared to 275 units produced in the same period last year. In comparison, passenger vehicles have seen a jump of 38 percent in sales. © Reuters In fact, Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest automobile maker posted a growth of 40 percent. To top that, India still hasn't picked up on electric vehicles and consumers are actually opting for smaller cars that are easier to drive in densely populated urban areas. So, why did the Nano fail? I've spoken to a lot of marketing experts as well as automobile aficionado's and the major point of failure has been Nano's marketing. The company wanted to make a point, that the base variant should cost only Rs. 1 lakh, excluding taxes, which was never practically achieved. The base variant, in turn, was nothing but a metal box with an engine. © BCCL Purchasing a car is everyone's dream, and when you are open to spending on a four-wheeler, you'd want it to have at least some basic comfort features. These were missing from the base variant of the Nano, and if you wanted them, the cost escalated quickly to nearly at least Rs. 3 lakhs. Now, it must be noted that Tata's marketing of the vehicles was always around it being the cheapest car in the market. The "cheapest" tag didn't actually go well with the buyers, who are under societal judgment and pressure of having a status when purchasing a four-wheeler. The company tried multiple new ways of marketing it, giving new colours, improved interiors and fuel efficiency, but all this faded in front of the "cheapest" tag. © TATA In the last few years, Tata did realize what's wrong with their marketing efforts and tried to shift the campaigns. It tried to woo the young buyers by giving the car a more youthful aura and marketing it as an urban traveler that can easily seep through traffic. But, irreparable damage was done long back. The people's perception about the car wasn't going to change. In comparison, the competing cars like Alto 800, Eon, and the Kwid have been posting amazing sales results. These cars, even though small and in the same price bracket, are actually perceived to be just a "car" and not the "cheapest car". © MotorBeam Secondly, the Nano was plagued with electrical issues at the beginning that saw cars catching fire. The Nano's engine is located in the back, similar to where Indan rickshaws have an engine. Even the exhaust note has often been compared to that of a rickshaw. All these minor factors also hampered its sales and made the buyers keep their distance. There is no doubt the Nano indeed is a revolutionary product. India has long been known for cutting costs and focusing more on the utility than the looks or other superficial factors. There are lakhs of families out there who own a car, just because of Tata's efforts. These users do not regret their decision of opting the Nano. But unfortunately, the dream car remained a dream for the company. Source: Bloomberg
