  1. Microsoft finally showed us some more detailed about the upcoming Halo game last night at E3 and its back in action with Master Chief. Halo Infinite is apparently an open-world game and we also got to see Cortana back in his helmet after a very long time. The game is set to launch next year on Holiday 2020 alongside Xbox Scarlett as a launch title. © Microsoft The sixth instalment in the franchise was teased last year at E3 and the new trailer gives us a closer look at Master Chief. The trailer showed a UNSC soldier being stranded in space and gets contacted by a ship nearby. In the process of locating the ship, the soldier discovers Master Chief floating in space in survival mode. Master Chief is brought back to life from Survival Mode and the ship is soon attacked by enemies. Master Chief then gets ready to face the enemies that later transitions into the title screen. Master Chief is then seen slotting Cortana into his helmet while her voice can be heard saying, "I chose you because you were special. I knew we would be perfect together. And I was right.” © Microsoft Microsoft shared a vague description of the game that says it finds "Master Chief on an all-new adventure as he uncovers the mysteries surrounding the appearance of The Pilot and the desolate remains of a Halo ring.” Halo Infinite will be also coming to Xbox One and PC, and will also be included in Microsoft's new Xbox Game Pass subscription service. This will be the first time a Halo Game will be coming to PC at the same time as its console launch. Are you excited for Halo Infinite? Have you seen the trailer yet? If not, you can watch it below to know more details about the upcoming game.
  2. Microsoft finally announced more details about the new Xbox currently codenamed as "Project Scarlett" at its E3 briefing last night. The new console has quite a few tricks up its sleeve; however, we were told more about is technical specifications. © Microsoft The new console is expected to be 4 times more powerful than the Xbox One X and is powered by an AMD chipset. Microsoft claims that the new console will be able to push up to 120 frames per second and will also come with an SSD to reduce load times in games. Current consoles run mechanical drives that are significantly slower than SSDs. The solid state drive will also function as virtual memory to improve load times. "A console should be built and optimised for one thing and one thing only: Gaming," Xbox head Phil Spencer said during the briefing. © Microsoft The company also revealed that the next instalment in the Halo franchise i.e. Halo Infinite will be a launch title for the upcoming console. Microsoft did not reveal the official launch date of the console but did detail that it will be coming to stores in Holiday 2020. Xbox Scarlett will have a custom Zen 2 processor from AMD, GDDR6 RAM, and capable of 8K visuals. The new console is expected to support accessories such as the Xbox One controller and games in the next generation of consoles. © Microsoft During the pre-show of the briefing, the company did hint about the new console with coded messages. One of the videos showed the code R255 while the other video showed “G 36” and “ B O.” When the codes are put together it basically reads RGB (255, 36, 0) which also happens to be the colour code for Scarlett. Are you excited about the new console by Microsoft? What features would you like to see in the upcoming console? Let us know in the comments.
  3. EA decided to kick start the E3 2019 this year by showcasing the games that they're cooking for us this year. From the new Star Wars game to the Sims 4's new pack, EA made a ton of announcements at EA Play. The star of the show, at least for us, was the new FIFA 20. Yes, this year's FIFA is going to be bigger and better than ever and EA is bringing back FIFA Street with FIFA 20. Called 'Volta Football', it's essentially FIFA Street that used to be an old standalone title back in the days. Now EA is bringing it back as a game mode instead of releasing a new game altogether. Makes sense. Volta Football is a part single-player, part multiplayer, a story-driven mode with a branch for team play. It's got everything you can expect from a standalone FIFA Street game. It also has Volta Kick-Off with which you can play with your favorite sides and stars if you want. (c) Electronic Arts In Volta, you can play 3v3, 4v4, or 5v5, each with different modes like Rush Football (no goalkeepers), and more. The Pitches and courts, as you can see, can be of varying sizes and in different locations around the world. From the rooftops of Tokyo to Amsterdam's underpass, you can choose to engage anywhere you want. It's also the first time men and women will be able to share a pitch in FIFA, and that by itself is a huge deal. As a player, you'll also get a ton of customization options with which you'll be able to change a lot of things like shirts, boots, shorts, sweaters, and other vanity items. (c) Electronic Arts EA made it a point to focus primarily on the new Volta mode, but it's worth pointing out that the game will also have the normal game modes that we've come to expect and love from the previous titles. So think of the Volta mode like an addition to the existing stuff you could do in the game. Well, the arrival of a Street mode was kind of inevitable since fans have been asking EA to bring back FIFA Street for a long time. By the way, 'Volta' is Portuguese for "return", which basically means EA is listening to player feedback. We're glad to have FIFA Street back and we hope EA has done justice to it. FIFA 20 launches September 27 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
  4. The Uncharted movie adaptation has had a very rocky journey so far; however, we can finally calm down as a release date for the movie has been set. Sony has given a release date of December 18, 2020, for the movie which means we aren't that far away from seeing Nathan Drake on the big screen. © YouTube For what we know, Tom Holland will be playing Drake and the movie will be directed by Dan Trachtenberg. The action-adventure movie does not have a plot summary yet and it is not confirmed whether the movie will follow the plot from the video game series. Uncharted is more like a modern spin to the Indiana Jones genre where Drake and his friends go off to mysterious locations to hunt treasures. The game is known to have massive action set pieces, a lot of parkour-ing and of course some witty lines. © Sony So far there have been four main games in the Uncharted video game series starring Nathan Drake and one spin-off featuring his friends. There have been speculations that the movie will be about Drake becoming a treasure hunter. However, this is just based on speculation right now. © YouTube Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was the last instalment in the series that wrapped up Nathan Drake's story and is probably the last Uncharted game to be made by Naughty Dog. The studio has hinted that Uncharted 5 could be a possibility and may be made by a different studio. Naughty Dog is the highly acclaimed studio that made the Uncharted games and 'The Last of Us.' There is also a big screen adaptation of 'The Last of Us' in the works.
  5. Apple is bringing major changes to the iPad as the Cupertino giant unveiled iPadOS last night at WWDC. Some of these features were highly requested by iPad users for better usability, functionality and adaptability. Apple announced the new iPadOS with new features that brings the iPad closer to laptops. Here are the features announced by Apple for iPadOS: 1. Mouse Support iPad users have requested mouse support for a while especially since the new iPad Pro is powerful enough to take on most laptops. For now, Apple has implemented mouse support as an AssistiveTouch feature which we feel is just the starting point. This feature at the moment simulates the touch action and can be done using a mouse instead. Currently, the feature is compatible with Apple's Magic Trackpad, and wireless Bluetooth mice. USB mice are reportedly supported but we can only be sure once it rolls out. Hello mouse support on iOS 13! It's an AssistiveTouch feature, and works with USB mice. @viticci nailed this pic.twitter.com/nj6xGAKSg0 — Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) June 3, 2019 2. USB File Transfers © Apple In order to come closer to a laptop's functionality, Apple's Files app needed additional support for better files management. Most users wanted support for USB drives and Apple is finally bringing support on the iPadOS. The new operating system will allow users to easily plug in USB drives, SD cards or log into an SMB file server. There's also support for importing photos directly from a camera into Lightroom. 3. Second Screen © Apple If you own a Macbook and want additional screen space, the iPad will now be able to fill that void. iPadOS brings the added feature of using your iPad as a secondary display. You can even use the iPad to edit images on your MacBook in real time. 4. Better Multitasking © Apple iPad users can now work with multiple files and documents from the same app simultaneously with updates to Split View, or can quickly view and switch between multiple apps in Slide Over. For example, customers can compose an email while viewing another email side by side or access multiple apps like Messages or Calendar with just a swipe. The iPad OS will be available for beta users later this month and is available now for Apple Developer Program members.
  6. Apple has finally turned to the dark side as the Cupertino giant made the new feature official for iOS 13. The announcement came at Apple's annual WWDC event and the company showed off some applications running in dark mode. Some of these apps include Music, Calendar, Notes, Maps and Messages. (c) Apple The new dark mode will finally be available for iOS devices later this year when iOS 13 rolls out. Google announced its own dark mode feature at I/O last month and is already available to use in the beta version of Android Q. Dark Mode takes inspiration from macOS's Mojave operating system where there isn't a huge difference on the Home screen. Things, however, change after unlocking the iPhone where apps like Music, Maps and other applications that have a darker interface. There are also differences in the interface in other Apple applications like messages, emojis, keyboard and photos. (c) Apple The dark mode is not only easy on your eyes, but it can also help in saving battery life by a margin. If you own an iPhone X, XS, and XS Max, there will be less power consumption, thanks to the OLED display. Dark Mode has been a very popular requested feature as it not only conserves battery life and puts less strain on your eyes, but also looks better to look at. The new dark mode feature also extends to widgets and notifications. The dark mode is not exclusive to system-wide apps as third-party applications will also be to take advantage of this feature, apps like Google, YouTube, Twitter, Medium, Reddit, Wikipedia, Instapaper, IMDb and many more.
  7. Apple today finally introduced the new iPod touch with subtle enhancements such as the inclusion of Apple's A10 Fusion chip. The chip will bring improved performance in games, and for the first time augmented reality (AR) features and Group FaceTime. © Apple “We're making the most affordable iOS device even better with performance that is twice as fast as before, Group FaceTime and augmented reality starting at just $199,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of Product Marketing. “The ultra-thin and lightweight design of iPod touch has always made it ideal for enjoying games, music and so much more wherever you go.” © Apple The iPod touch will come in different storage options i.e. 32GB, 128GB and 256GB options. Users will be able to listen to music both offline and online via Apple Music and iTunes Store, including radio shows like Beats 1 Radio. © Apple The iPod touch will also be able to take advantage of ARkit enabled games and apps for gaming, education and web browsing purposes. The iPod touch will also be able to pair up with AirPods just like it can with other iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad. The new iPod touch starts at Rs 18,900 for the 32GB model, Rs 28,900 for the 128GB model and Rs 38,900 for the 256GB model and is available through Apple Authorised Resellers and select carriers. India availability dates are yet to confirmed but we expect them to hit store shelves soon.
  8. Oppo announced its latest Reno series smartphones in India and comes with a very unique pop-up selfie camera that basically pops up from the side. There were two smartphones launched i.e. Oppo Reno and Reno 10X Zoom Edition. The smartphone comes with different configurations and pricing for the Indian market. Specifications © YouTube The Oppo Reno Vanilla edition comes with a single variant i.e. 8GB + 256GGB storage, while the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom edition comes in two variants, that is, 6GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB. In terms of specifications, the OPPO Reno comes with a 6.4-inch full HD+ AMOLED display and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 chipset. In terms of cameras, the OPPO Reno comes with a 48-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The Oppo Reno has a 3765 mAh battery and supports 20W VOOC fast charging. © Youtube/Ben's Gadget Reviews On the other hand, the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom Edition comes with a 6.6-inch AMOLED display that has an in-display fingerprint scanner. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor and is paired with up to 8GB of RAM. The smartphone has a triple camera setup at the back where the primary camera is a 48-megapixel sensor.

The Oppo Reno series smartphones will be available for pre-orders from May 28 on Amazon and Flipkart.
  9. It has been long rumoured that Apple will be bringing one of its most beloved features on iPhones, but it will be different from what we are used to. There have been previous rumours suggesting that Apple will include an on-screen fingerprint scanner on the next iPhone and the company's latest patent confirms the plans. It may not come as soon as this year's iPhone, however, it is expected to come sooner or later. (c) Pexels According to the latest patent spotted by Patently Apple, the company wants to embed a pinhole camera being the display of the smartphone. This camera will be able to create a 3D map of your fingerprint regardless of where you place your finger. The new feature will be an additional form of biometric unlocking and the company will not be replacing FaceID anytime soon. The two methods will make the iPhone even more secure as current iPhones only supports FaceID. (c) Pexels The more exciting bit about this patent is that Apple has shown pictures of a prototype, which means that the company is already done with the development process. The new unlocking method is expected to go into mass production by 2020 and will be a feature on 2020 iPhones. The new unlocking method is not the first time we're something like this as Xiaomi has also developed a version which works similar to Apple's patent. Source: Patently Apple
  10. Despite participating in the tournament since its advent in 1975, New Zealand are yet to lift the coveted trophy. But, under the leadership of Brendon McCullum, the Kiwis came mighty close to clinching the World Cup title in 2015, but a seven-wicket loss at the hands of Australia left them heartbroken. Irrespective of their previous failings, Kane Williamson-led New Zealand has been in good form and are still one of the top contenders for the World Cup title this year. Their 15-man squad is comprised of proven match-winners who are more than capable of powering them to the all-important final of the ICC spectacle. In Tim Southee and Trent Boult, the Kiwis have a deadly seam-bowling combination that is potent enough to trouble opposition batsmen on the seaming surfaces of England & Wales. The spin-bowling department is bolstered with the presence of Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi - a duo that has proved its mettle in the past. © Reuters When it comes to the batting line-up, Martin Guptill is an obvious choice for the opening slot, while the likes of Colin Munro and Tom Latham could be seen fighting for the other spot at the top. Captain Williamson is a preferred option at No. 3 and the availability of experienced Ross Taylor is likely to bring stability to their middle-order. The Kiwis have also included three all-rounders - Colin de Grandhomme, Jimmy Neesham and Munro - whose presence doesn't just bolster their batting, but also add teeth to the bowling department. In the last edition, Guptill was the leading run-getter for the Kiwis with 547 runs, including two hundreds and a fifty, in nine matches. On the other hand, Boult was their leading wicket-taker with 22 scalps and an impressive economy of under 5 in nine matches. Going into the mega event, Williamson will need to rally his troops and ensure they click as a unit when they begin their campaign against Sri Lanka on 1st June at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Squad: Kane Williamson (c), Tom Blundell (wk), Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham (wk), Colin Munro, Jimmy Neesham, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee and Ross Taylor.
  11. Despite the decriminalisation of Article 377, LGBTQIA+ individuals struggle every single day to 'be themselves' out in the open and own their sexuality; unfortunately, just like the society struggles to let go of its judgements and biases. In spite of the law being on their side, at least partially now, they still have to face a lot of stigma, just because the society assumes every individual is heterosexual. To counter this, The Times Of India has launched a campaign called 'Times Out & Proud', through which the paper will offer the LGBTQIA+ community free space in its classifieds for three months. © TOI The campaign started on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, and it aims at making daily life easier for the LGBTQIA+ community. The campaign is based on the rightful belief that sexual orientation and gender identities should not decide the stature of a person in society. © TOI Since newspaper is one of the most basic and primary public spaces which is shared by every section of the society equally, the Times Of India decided that it's time to aggressively take progressive steps towards inclusion. As part of the campaign, the Times of India is offering the LGBTQIA+ community a free space in the classifieds section for three months. This is a safe space for the members of the LGBTQIA+ community to not just look for a house, a job or a partner, but a medium through which they can share their stories publicly. The classifieds are simply a platform that the campaign provides to the LGBTQIA+ community to voice their stories. © TOI The campaign has been launched through a film featuring the lives and struggles of different people from the LGBTQIA+ community. One can visit the campaign page to watch the film and join the campaign as well. Hopefully, this step will prove to be a path-changer, when it comes to creating awareness and bringing in non-judgemental attitudes. © TOI If you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community or want to support a LGBTQIA+ friend or relative, share your stories in 50 words to outandproud@timesgroup.com, and it will be printed free of cost for the first three months. To join the movement and to share your thoughts and views, use the hashtag #TimesOutAndProud Watch the campaign video here:
  12. Ever since making their ICC World Cup debut in 1992, South Africa have struggled to justify their talent. The perennial underachievers of cricket, the Proteas have reached the semifinals on four occasions but just couldn't hold their nerve to go all the way. But, as their hunt for an elusive maiden title goes on, the current crop of players and the new-look South African squad offer great promise going into this year's World Cup. Led by Faf du Plessis, South Africa's 15-man squad is a healthy composition of youth and experience. The availability of Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markram and Hashim Amla gives the Proteas three solid opening options. While De Kock is a sure-shot pick for the opening slot, Markram and Amla will possibly have to compete for the other spot at the top. Just like their opening options, South Africa have plenty to choose from for their pace attack. There's Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn and Lungi Ngidi who will surely come in handy in the English conditions. They will find adequate assistance from Dwaine Pretorius and Andile Phehlukwayo who seem to be making the most of their opportunities lately. Reuters While the surfaces in England and Wales aren't expected to favour spin bowling, but, if need be, South Africa will be more than happy to call upon veteran Imran Tahir who is coming off a spectacular run in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL). More importantly, since the master leg-spinner has announced his retirement after the ICC World Cup, Tahir will be eager to make an impression in his ODI swansong. On the other hand, Tabraiz Shamsi has also been roped in to provide the Proteas a second spin option. The left-arm wrist spinner has been around the circuit for a while now, but the exploits of Tahir has kept him at bay. Going into the mega event, Shamsi can also use it as an opportunity to prove his credentials as a potential long-term replacement for the departing Tahir. Reuters In the batting department, South Africa's top-heavy line-up is followed by a pretty decent, but yet to be tested, middle-order which is comprised of Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller and JP Duminy, with the latter's knowledge and adaptability putting his side in good stead. For those unfavourable times, the Proteas also have the cushion of Andile Phehlukwayo and Chris Morris to accelerate the innings in key moments of the game. All in all, the Du Plessis-led brigade has plenty of options in almost all the departments, but, at the cricket's biggest stage, South Africa will need to find their winning combination, not to mention click as a unit, if they intend to get rid of the 'chokers' tag. Can they really do it? We'll see when they open their campaign against England on 30th May at the Kennington Oval in London. Squad: Faf du Plessis(c), Quinton de Kock(wk), David Miller, JP Duminy, Hashim Amla, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn, Lungi Ngidi, Chris Morris, Imran Tahir and Tabraiz Shamsi.
  13. It's raining sequels in Bollywood right now. It can also be said that sequels have now become a sure shot formula to score success at the box office. The latest one to join the league is Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan starrer 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa'. Earlier, there were reports about the sequel but now we have a confirmation about the same. Yes, you heard that right. The horror-comedy superhit will have a part two and we cannot help but hope for more twists and turns. T-Series honcho Bhushan Kumar will be producing the film and interestingly, he has got the first narration from director Farhad Samji. A source close to the development told MensXP, “Farhad Samji is both writing and directing the film. He has given the first narration to Bhushan Kumar and he has liked the idea. Currently, Farhad is working on the script and is also looking for a fresh cast this time. The title has always been registered and it's called 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2'.” Is Akshay a part of the sequel? Well, then the answer is no. Our source also told us, “Akshay is, for sure, not a part of 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2'. The makers will look for a new cast altogether. Right now, the latest development is this and Bhushan Kumar is quite interested in the idea of this sequel.” The original film was an official remake of the Malayalam hit film 'Manichitrathazhu'' starring Mohanlal and Shobana. Director Farhad is presently working on 'Housefull 4' and it features Akshay Kumar. It will be interesting to see who will step into the shoes of Akshay Kumar. Any guesses? Do let us know in the comments below. Apart from 'Bhool Bhulaiya 2', the producer is already remaking BR Chopra's 1978 drama 'Pati Patni Aur Woh' starring Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar, and Ananya Panday and Hrishikesh Mukherjee's 1975 comedy 'Chupke Chupke', in which Rajkummar Rao will reprise Dharmendra's role. Stay tuned in for more such Bollywood updates.
  14. According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple has started to finalise locations for its first retail store that is set to open in India soon. The report said that the company has 'redoubled its efforts' in India to open its first store in an upscale location. © Pexels The first location is said to be in Mumbai and will probably be at a site similar to iconic locations such as Orchard Street in Singapore, Regent Street in London and Gift Avenue in New York. Currently, Apple sells its products via authorised partners only, as the company did not meet local manufacturing and sourcing requirements. Apple has now increased manufacturing in India and is currently in talks with the Government for a retail store, the report says. Wistron's factory application for a new $1 billion factory in India was recently approved by the country's IT ministry, which means Apple will soon have an additional manufacturing unit here in India. The new factory will be manufacturing Apple's iPhone 8, in addition to the iPhone SE, 6S, and AirPods. Additionally, the Foxconn project is also in progress, which could be commissioned to assemble the rest of the iPhone line-up including the new iPhone XS, XS Max and XR © Pexels “India is a very important market in the long term,” Cook said after the company's earnings report last week. “It's a challenging market in the short term, but we're learning a lot. We plan on going in there with sort of all of our might.” Last month, Apple slashed prices for the iPhone XR and offered a price cut of Rs 17,000. The price cut resulted in good sale numbers for Apple's latest smartphone and it seems like Apple is gearing up for a far more competitive strategy. Source: Bloomberg
  15. Deepika Padukone and Salman Khan in a movie together? It's surely a hard pill to digest but reports floating around suggest that the dimpled beauty has finally given a nod to sharing screen space with Khan in 'Kick 2'. Their pairing has been on the cards for a long time, but nothing really materialized. If a report in Bollywood Hungama is to be believed, the two will be seen in one frame now. For all their fans, it will surely be a visual delight. A source told the entertainment website that Deepika was the first choice for 'Kick' but things back then didn't really pan out. Jacqueline Fernandez stepped into the role and it was a turning point in her career. The source added that Deepika's role has been given full attention. "Deepika can't play just a typical Salman heroine. Her role has to be as powerful as Salman's. Sajid is working on it, injecting heft into the female lead," said the source. © Instagram/Colors Wondering why the two superstars possibly coming together for 'Kick 2' is a massive development? It's because the two have a history and not a particularly pleasant one. By history, we mean their statements about each other in the public domain weren't too pleasing. Salman, in a statement, had called depression a luxury and said that he can't afford to be depressed as it will work against him. This didn't go down pretty well with the 'Piku' actor and she gave it back saying, "Depression is sometimes perceived as a luxury... (But) It is important to break that myth." Deepika has rejected not one but six big movies with Salman Khan. But now, if this development turns out to be true, it seems like the two have let bygones be bygones. Are you excited to see Deepika and Salman in one frame? Let us know in the comments section below.
  16. EA's new battle royale title became a breakaway gaming hit of this year. The game quickly became one of the top titles of 2019 by attracting over 50 million players in just a few months' time. Now, the company wants to bring it to mobile devices. Yes, it's finally happening. In its earnings call, EA noted that “it's in advanced negotiations to bring Apex Legends to China and to mobile.” Unfortunately, they don't have an ETA for the same, but we believe that it'll arrive sooner rather than later. After all, they'd want to continue the momentum of the game and attract some players to take on the likes of PUBG Mobile and Fortnite. © Respawn EA didn't confirm whether it's planning to bring the game to both Android or iOS, but we assume the game will arrive on both platforms. It is, however, worth pointing out that the game may arrive first on iOS before making its way to Android. Given the success of Fortnite and PUBG Mobile on mobile platforms, it only makes to sense bring the game to both platforms. © Respawn Anyway, let's hope Apex Legends doesn't end up becoming a new found addiction for mobile gamers. Seriously, the last thing we want to see is people getting arrested for playing games. But let's face it, PUBG Mobile is going to have some serious competition because a lot of playing ditched PUBG to play Apex Legends when it arrived on PC and consoles earlier this year.

  17. For all those people reading this story, before you ask me this question for the 123456789th time that 'Vivek Oberoi has fans?', let me clear the confusion once and for all. Yes, Vivek Oberoi has fans, and they are the happiest people on the face of the earth today. Why? Because the most controversial film of Vivek Oberoi's career is finally going to release at the theatres near you. © Legend Global Studio Ever since the biopic on PM Modi was announced, things have been going downhill for the film. First, Twitter had a field day churning out memes, then the Election Commission put a ban on the film's release until elections were over, and later the trailer of the film was taken off YouTube.

  18. I've been planning to buy a car since the past couple of months. And that's ensued a series of events – browsing through different car models, comparing them, booking test drives and flipping through my bank account to make sure the budget is intact. Every time I mentioned I'm buying a car, even the person eavesdropping on my conversation would leave the pretense and add his input to it. On a normal day, I ignore this extra flow of information, but today I heard the best news – a car designed specifically for design and style seekers is going to hit the Indian markets. If you are into cars or have spent the last couple of months learning all about them like me you'd have heard about the Seoul, Korea based automobile giant Kia Motors. After making a great impact in Global markets, their next destination is India. They've recently announced their launch and their estimated time of arrival on the Indian roads have been pegged in the later half of 2019. Kia Buzz If you're still not jumping up and down with excitement at this news, let me break down the good, the very good and the most exciting elements of the Kia cars. When it comes to design and style, no one quite does it like them. They believe small things make a big difference and since 2006, Kia has primarily focused on its design and has got the best names on board for the same. Kia's globally renowned Design team & state of the art design centers have given Kia a distinct design identity in the international market with their iconic grille design, also known as the Tiger Nose. With Kia it's always about the unique design and they are here. These are some Kia models that have been global trendsetters. Kia Sportage Built for life's adventures, the Sportage is a modern compact crossover with distinguished exteriors. It stands out with its sweeping curves, sleek lines and contemporary features. Its dynamic and unconventional styling is designed for the bold. It flaunts the trademark KIA Tiger Nose grille with elegant side contours, prominent wheel arches, coupe-like roof and extended wheelbase. The front exterior boasts of elongated headlights that sweep gracefully in the body and quad LED fog lights. The Sportage promises to take you on an unforgettable journey. Kia Stinger Centennial Auto Group The Stinger took the centre stage in 2018, where it stole the spotlight from American auto companies and made its debut. Stinger is a premium performance car, something that was a big surprise from the Kia brand. It is also something typical of the Kia personality – a car that only Kia can do. The Stinger is an explosion and not just in the way it looks. It's a smooth drive all the way. It channels the spirit of the gran turismos of the 1970s with its level of elegance and athleticism. The design team has placed a strong emphasis on the balance and proportions of the body. Kia Stinger has won numerous designs & performance awards globally since the launch like The Red Dot designs awards in 2018 and best performance car of the year UK 2018. Kia ProCeed The Kia ProCeed is one of their Ceed variants with a stylish body. The most striking element of the ProCeed body is its design detail on the coupe-like roofline that gives it a more rounded silhouette. It has a more aggressive exterior along with an equally powerful interior working engine that includes a 1.4 liter turbo-four and a 1.6 liter turbodiesel I-4, both of which can be paired with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The Kia ProCeed also comes with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Another notable aspect is their triple win at the Red Dot Awards for the three Ceed variants - The five-door Kia Ceed hatchback and Kia Sportswagon models, and the new Kia ProCeed five-door shooting brake. With the new entrants in the Indian market, I for sure am ready to wait out my purchase to lay my hands on the premium Kia models.
  19. OnePlus has officially confirmed the launch date of its next smartphone and in all likelihood, it will be called the OnePlus 7. There's a good chance that the company will launch multiple devices; one rumoured being the OnePlus 7 Pro. The new smartphones will be unveiled on 14th May in three different countries at the same time — including India. © Weibo The events are going to be held in three cities i.e. New York, London and Bangalore and will start at 8:15 PM IST. OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 7 Pro has leaked in the past and here's what we know so far. © Twitter Just a few days ago Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus said that the next smartphone will have a huge focus on the the display of the device. This probably means that the OnePlus 7 or the OnePlus 7 Pro will have a high quality screen on their devices. According to rumours, the OnePlus 7 Pro is going to have a QHD+ 90 Hz AMOLED display and will be as expensive as flagship devices. Pete Lau spoke to our sister website, the Economic Times and said: “To provide consumers more choice and meet the needs of a broader audience, we've changed our launch strategy, but our commitment to premium products and experiences remains the same.” In terms of other specifications, the OnePlus 7 will have a significant upgrade over the OnePlus 6 as it will ship with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and will be paired with 8 to 10 GB of RAM. © Twitter The OnePlus 7 Pro is expected to have 12GB of RAM which may be a bit of an overkill. There's also a good chance that the Pro variant will have a pop-up selfie camera and a full-view display as the company decides to ditch the notch design from the OnePlus 6T.
  20. Kunal Kamra, over the years, has gathered a good amount of fan following, with his edgy political stand-ups and his famous podcast 'Shut up ya Kunal'. The comedian has an authentic style that delivers content in the best satirical way possible, leaving the audience in splits of laughter. Recently, the comedian has gone on a spree of criticising PM Modi and how he shouldn't come back in to power and it's hilarious to say the least. We all eventually become who we hate the most... Art by @maseeh_ur_rahmaan A post shared by Kunal Kamra (@kuna_kamra) on Mar 26, 2019 at 1:05pm PDT Kunal has trolled the PM earlier too with various hilarious posts on his Twitter account. Main fakeer hoon Main chaiwala hoon Main Maa Ganga ka beta hoon Main majdoor hoon Main Swayam Sevak hoon Main chowkidar hoon... Haan par aap Pradhan Mantri bhi ho kabhi uska kaam bhi kar liya karo — Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) 18 March 2019 Yeh chowkidar wala idea dekh ke toh BJP ki marketing se bhi bharosa uth gaya hai... — Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) 19 March 2019 A month ago, Mumbai-based Kamra dropped a video suggesting that industrialists like Mukesh Ambani and Ratan Tata replace political figures like Narendra Modi. While the video got hysterical laughs, there was an important point he made- that people in UP still don't use toilets. The video did really well, getting about 7 million views. © Instagram Recently, a day before the first phase of polling Kamra posted a Tweet, holding a placard which said 'Don't vote for Modi'. He got hate-filled responses out of it, but surely enough the hilarity of it got enough attention, especially when he morphed an image of himself in one of the scenes in 'Game of Thrones', where Bran is supposedly staring at Kamra holding the placard which says 'don't vote for Modi'. Well, winter is certainly coming for the country too, or so Kamra believes and he took his opinion on Modi's campaign beyond the wall this time. Take a look! Don't vote for modi — Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) 11 April 2019 *Haters will say these are Photoshopped* pic.twitter.com/VtAg0i8hH1 — Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) 15 April 2019 Obviously, his Twitter handle was bombarded with both Modi lovers and haters alike. Well, we love you ð Kunal Kamra immensely & promise never to Cast our Vote for MODI! I have already made my choice & have one of my own personal favourite to share with you. Hope, you enjoy watching as much watching as we love ur pics. pic.twitter.com/38w1aT73EI — Chowkidar CHOR Hai - PARI (@paree7861) 15 April 2019 After seeing Kunal's post Sodumb Patra: mujhe kya main toh bhukha hoon. ð pic.twitter.com/dYaTOi4bGw — KARAN THAPAR DESI (@DesiStupides) 15 April 2019 No never it's real and rare.. pic.twitter.com/G5Q4iYyJQW — KARAN THAPAR DESI (@DesiStupides) 15 April 2019 Dekho ye chand pe pauh gya ðððð pic.twitter.com/HBgSCZ4hgQ — Shikho Ahmed.

"I thought why are we hiding behind words like inclusivity and secularism, why leave anything to people's imagination" he said in an interview with ToI. Well, whether or not people vote for Modi is besides the point. What's absolutely funny and on-point is that Kamra's 'Don't vote for Modi' has finally reached 'Game Of Thrones' as well.
  21. We've seen quite a few impressive smartphones launched in the past; however, one of the most anticipated smartphones is around the corner. The leaks so far suggest a radical new design for the OnePlus 7 and if the leaks are correct, we will probably see at least two different models from the Chinese company. Just like every forthcoming OnePlus launch, the smartphone gets leaked and we get to know almost every specification possible. The OnePlus 7 is rumoured to have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chipset with 6GB, 8GB and 10GB RAM configurations. The device is also expected to have an FHD+ resolution display which will please many video content consumers. © Twitter, Slashleaks Other details that have leaked before suggest that the OnePlus 7 will have a few extra design changes this year. The rumours suggest that the OnePlus 7 will have a popup selfie camera similar to what we have seen in Vivo devices. The move comes to provide a seamless bezel-less experience on the smartphone. © Weibo Last week, new leak surfaced that suggests that there will be another OnePlus 7 device that will come with the X50 model for 5G connectivity. The device is said to be called the OnePlus 7 Pro and you can read all about it here. The OnePlus 7 Pro is also expected to have 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage if this leak turns out to be true. Previous reports have suggested that the smartphone will have a triple camera set up at the back and a sliding or pop-up selfie camera. The latest leak about the OnePlus 7 is to do with its launch date. According to tipster Ishan Aggarwal, the OnePlus 7 launch date is going to be May 14th, in China. We can expect the device to launch in India soon after. Having said that, the source does have a great track record when it comes to leaks but we suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt for now.
  22. Studying Twins is Science's love affair from the dawn of time simply because of the near perfect genetic and physical match. This is ideal for scientists to conduct studies for comparing changes in human responses to change in environments. NASA did a similar test with an astronaut who also happens to have a twin brother. Scott Kelly, U.S. astronaut suggested to NASA that he and his identical twin brother, Mark could be a subject of a study of long-term space flight. © NASA This gave scientists and researchers the unique opportunity to monitor two brothers with an identical gene footprint in two very different environments. One in space and one 250 miles below it. Results have finally been publishing and the findings are shocking. Scott experienced changes that his brother Mark did not. These changes went away six months after Scott returned to earth; however, none of these changes posed any health differences. The results are now out and these were the results according to the paper: © Reuters "In this paper, they showed there was no statistically significant difference in genetic modifications they could find between the twin in the space station with the one on the ground," said Gronostajski, the director of the University of New York at Buffalo's Genetics, Genomics, and Bioinformatics graduate program. What were the changes? © NASA Scientists and doctors took many measurements from the Astronaut's body at molecular levels. Such a study has never been done before with such accuracy. Kelly also sent his blood samples to Earth via return capsules. Here are the changes that Kelly's body faced after a year in space: 1. 91.3 percent of Scott's gene activity returned to normal after six months landing back on Earth. The genes never mutated rather respond to the environment. 2. Flu Vaccine has the same effect in Space. 3. Kelly's end caps on Chromosomes got longer in space but returned to normal form upon his return. 4. One category of bacteria in Scott's gut increased, while another decreased; the ratio returned to normal after the mission. We don't yet whether this was harmful or not as more research is needed. 5. Kelly aged faster in terms of physical appearance than his Twin Brother in that period.
  23. When you think of an 'Alienware' gaming laptop, your brain starts showing you pictures of thick, beefy, loud and colourful machines with sharp corners and glowing alien cranium. Oh god, the mere thought of lugging that thing around makes your back hurt, doesn't it? Well, what if I told you that the company tried making an entirely new breed of gaming laptop, and the m15 is what they came up with. The m15 is Alienware's thinnest and lightest gaming laptop ever, and as someone who has used their laptops in the past, I can confirm that it stands out from the rest of their chunkier machines. It's also the cheapest Alienware gaming laptop on sale on Dell's website in India starting at Rs 1,51,190. But is it just as good as the other Alienware machines or did joining the thin-and-light league come with lots of compromises? Well, I've been using the Alienware m15's top of the line variant for the past few weeks now, and I think Alienware has successfully managed to cram a beast into a svelte body. Anyway, here's my full review of the Alienware m15 RTX gaming laptop. Design & Build Quality An extraterrestrial chic! Yes, as cliché as it sounds, those are the words that come to my mind when I look at this laptop. Yes, technically it's still too big to qualify as a true 'thin-and-light' gaming laptop, but I must say that it's surprisingly portable. It's just 0.83-inch thick and weighs just 2.16 kgs, so I can safely say that it's the thinnest and the lightest Alienware laptop. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla That being said, the m15 will still look familiar to anyone who has seen an Alienware machine before, especially this 'Nebula Red' variant which we have for review. It's just that Alienware got rid of all the extra chunk and retained just enough to house the cooling elements to keep the guts from overheating. BTW, it's still built like a tank. The lid is made from anodized aluminum, and our red variant here has soft-touch paint, which feels incredibly soft to touch. The lid can be opened with one hand and opening it will reveal a keyboard deck that's coated with a lush, black soft-touch finish. The top of the deck, however, is made up glossy plastic with an alien head right in the middle. You can also see some vents directly below the power button, and it has this funky honeycomb pattern. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Honestly, the Alienware m15's design has grown on me during the course of my testing. Of course, it's still very much an 'Alienware' design, but I am glad that the m15 doesn't belong to that obnoxious-looking pack with flashy RGB lighting all over it's body. The m15 is still something that I'd be very confident walking into a corporate meeting room with. Display It's not 4k, but boy is the Alienware m15's 15.6-inch 144-Hz display good! It's an awesome display for content consumption, be it watching movies, TV Shows or playing video games, which I happen to play a lot. While watching videos, the colours just seem to pop with excellent viewing angles, and the 144-Hz refresh rate kept the gaming action particularly smooth. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla One of the games which I really enjoyed playing on this laptop is 'Far Cry: New Dawn'. Seriously, that game has a lot of colourful and vivid visuals, and it was such an awesome experience. In fact, the game looked so good on this display, that I kept exploring different parts of the map instead of playing through the main missions. Look, the point that I am trying to make here is that Alienware has some of the best displays in the business, and the m15 is no exception. From brightness to smooth frame rates, everything was on point. Yes the laptop has huge bezels, which I found annoying at first, but it didn't really bother me that much mainly due to the fact that the display itself is enjoyable. Keyboard & Touchpad I really enjoyed the Alienware m15's keyboard and trackpad. Typing on this keyboard felt absolutely great, thanks to a solid amount of key travel and good response from the keys. I effortlessly hit my 70 words-per-minute average on the 10fastfingers typing test, so it's all good. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla As you can see, it's a full size keyboard with numpad and 4 macro keys at the top. The keyboard, of course, lights up in pretty colors, and the backlighting is nice and bright. Also, the backlight is powered by AlienFX, which means you can play around with four different zones of lighting and sync with other Alienware peripherals or even games. It's a lot of fun tinkering with these lights. As for the trackpad, I was kinda surprised to see that Alienware had ditched the discrete buttons in favor of a unified pad. Not a deal beaker at all, but still something to point out. The trackpad is excellent. The Windows 10 gestures were fast and accurate, and even the buttons are nice and clicky. Ports Though the m15 has a slimmer profile, Alienware hasn't made any compromises when it comes to ports. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla The laptop has a pair of USB 3.0 ports on the right with another pair on the left, which is accompanied by a Gigabyte Ethernet jack, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a noble lock slot. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla But that's not all. There are more ports at the back side. There's an HDMI port, a mini Display port, a Thunderbolt 3, a power jack and a proprietary port if you happen to have deep pockets to afford an Alienware Graphics Amplifier. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Audio Before I discuss the performance, let me talk about something which I feel took a hit in this laptop: The speakers. Like I said, I've used quite a few Alienware laptops in the past, but I was a little surprised by how low the speakers on this laptop sound. Don't get me wrong; it's not a bad speaker by any means. In fact, whatever I am able to hear is very crisp and clear. It's just that it's not the kind of Alienware speakers that I am used to. I also hate the fact that the speakers are bottom firing, which means they're not going to sound exceptional even if they did their best. From listening to music to watching movies, I'd say everything was a little underwhelming. Again, the speakers aren't bad, but they're just a little too small for my liking. I like laptop speakers that can fill my entire room at least at max volume, and the m15 speakers are clearly not the kind that I like. I did try playing some games with just the laptop's speakers as my audio output, and it was fine. I mean, I could hear the noise of crumbling leaves and whipping winds, but I still recommend you put on your headphones while playing games because there are lot of other things like fan noise, etc. Performance The Alienware m15 is available in several configurations in India. Every single one of them, however, have the same Intel Core i7-8750H processor with speeds up to 4.1GHz w/ Turbo Boost. The amount of RAM and storage between models. The variant which I tested had 16GB RAM and 1TB PCIe M.2 SSD, which is just absolutely insane. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla As for the GPU, I had the privilege of testing the m15's top-of-the-line variant with RTX 2070 8GB GDDR6 GPU with Max-Q Design. If you are tight on budget, then you can also choose to go for the base variant that offers RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6 GPU. The base variant of the laptop starts at Rs. 1,51,190. Now let's talk performance. As soon as I got my hands on the laptop, I started installing all the games that I had in my library. From popular online multiplayer titles like Apex Legends to some of the most demanding titles like Metro: Exodus, I gave the m15 a tough time. But I must say that I was very impressed by the performance. With an 8th-gen Intel Core processor and 16GB RAM, I already knew what to expect from this laptop when it comes to benchmarks. In m15 recorded a single-core score of 4,851 on Geekbench 4, whereas the multi-core score came in at a huge 19,713. It's among the highest that I've seen for a gaming laptop. While playing some CPU-intensive titles like Monster Hunter: World, I got frame rates over 80 FPS with significantly slashed loading times. Just like CPU, the GPU benchmark results were impressive, too. The 3DMark: Time Spy benchmark test gave out a result of 6,171. You can check out the benchmark results below for more info. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Moving on to gaming, the Alienware achieved an average frame rate of over 55FPS when playing Metro: Exodus in Full HD at its highest graphics setting including Ray tracing. I also tried using custom graphics settings just to see how smooth the game can run Not just Metro, I pushed this machine to play other ray-tracing enabled games like Far Cry New Dawn at highest settings, and got some impressive results. Check out the benchmark scores below to get a better understanding. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Thermals The Alienware m15 has a bunch of fans that kick in quite often if used in “balanced” mode. You can change the fan speed, etc. from the Alienware Command Center, and I always found myself sticking to the balanced mode, as it does a great job of keeping things cool for me whenever it's needed. Do make a note that the fans are noisy. Like, seriously. That's part of the reason why I said you should be using headphones while playing games. As for the thermal performance, I'd say the Alienware m15 does a decent job of keeping things cool even when it faces a lot of load. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Not going to lie, the laptop gets a little toasty at times, but that's given considering the fact that the processors and the RTX GPU runs hot inside the small chassis. That being said, at no point did I face thermal throttling. I even tried playing Metro: Exodus for over 5 hours straight with graphics settings set to extreme, and the m15 managed to maintain stable frames throughout the gameplay, which is very commendable. Worst comes to worst, you can always get yourself a cooling pad and rest the laptop on it while gaming. Battery Life The Alienware m15 comes with 60WHr battery, which is just so-so when it comes to performance. With moderate usage like web browsing, drafting a couple of articles, etc. I was able to push the m15 for about 4-4.5 hours on a single charge, before reaching out for my charger. That's not really a surprise since this is a gaming laptop, and there's a lot going on both, inside as well as the outside. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla The laptop has to push powerful internals, and then there's fancy keyboard lighting with rainbow effects and what not. Don't worry though, you won't find yourself hugging a socket all the time, but you'll really be away from it only for a few hours, sadly. The Final Say Alienware took its time to come up with a 'thin and light' gaming laptop, but I'd say that it has hit the sweet spot. The m15 is equal parts flashy and powerful. Despite being different from the other Alienware laptops, the m15 has managed to retain it's attention-grabbing factor that makes it so desirable. It's also the first Alienware laptop which I could realistically use as a work laptop and then turn to it for some intense gaming session when I am back home. Seriously, that's what most laptops with a Max-Q design are supposed to do, and the m15 takes good care of that. The only downsides, in my opinion, are the battery life and the somewhat limiting thermals. But if you don't mind spending some time near a socket and use it on a desk with, say, a cooling pad while gaming, then the m15 is a supremely powerful and a surprisingly portable gaming laptop. The Alienware m15 starts at Rs. 1,51,190, and at that price, I think it's a great choice.
  24. Even though we've studied about black holes and scientists know quite a bit about the phenomenon, mankind has never really seen one. We've never witnessed one and everything we know about the phenomenon is based on inference. However, this is all about to change today. © YouTube For the first time in mankind's history, we will be able to see a proper black hole thanks to the Event Horizon Telescope project. We will be able to see it for ourselves today at 6:30 PM IST and we suggest you don't miss this monumental event. It will be our generation's “Moon Landing” moment and we may finally learn more about the mysterious phenomenon. © Paramount Pictures_Interstellar The Event Horizon Telescope will be using a network of eight radio observatories and all of them have pointed at two black holes, i.e. Sagittarius A, the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way, and an even bigger black hole 53.5 million light-years away in Galaxy M87. Black holes are the most extreme environments for gravitational activity and are the best environment to test modern theories of gravity. It can be used to test general relativity and scientists expect the black hole to have a shadow in the form of a ring. This is based on Einstein's theory of relativity and if his theory does not hold, we can expect a different kind of shadow. How Can We Watch It? The live-stream of the event and the press conference is going to start at 6:30 PM IST and will be hosted on the National Science Foundation's official YouTube Channel. You can watch the live-stream below when it goes live. *Images for representational purposes only.
  25. Have you ever ripped out a USB device recklessly without 'safely removing' it from your computer, and got poked by a tech expert? Well, you no longer need to worry about that. Microsoft has finally accepted that nobody was doing it anyway, and is doing away with 'safely eject' option once and for all. That's right, Microsoft no longer cares what you do. On a serious note, though, Microsoft has changed the system's default setting for USB and Thunderbolt-enabled external devices with the new Windows 10 update. The OS now comes with “Quick Removal” settings by default, which means you can now remove your USB devices without upsetting the fellow tech expert sitting next to you. © Reuters The change was actually made back in October last year, but it's only now that the company is officially alerting the professionals. It is, however, worth pointing out that the 'safely remove' icon is still present after the update, but you can simply ignore it, and yank the USB device out anytime, assuming you are not in the middle of actively copying files to or from it. According to Microsoft, pulling out the USB device without 'safely removing' it may still degrade system performance. Let's be honest though, we all have been ripping out our flash drives without using that option for years now, and our system have been just fine. But hey, it's nice to know that Microsoft doesn't really cares anymore.
