  1. 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. Ø´Ûک٠احÙد (@ShikhoAhmed1) 15 April 2019 already voted for him and also taken my 50 neighbours to vote for Modi ji.ð®ð³ð¸ — Chowkidar Manish Soni ð®ð³ (@mksoni281) 11 April 2019 Most people were seen cheering for his campaign, while some took serious offence to it but the lad doesn't seem to care one bit. "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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. The Huawei P30 Pro and P30 have finally made its way to India where “P” denotes the meaning for photography. It's definitely one of the salient features of the smartphones and we've been testing the phone for almost a week to find out for ourselves. The P30 Pro has a versatile camera system and has features such as 5x optical zoom, an RYB sensor and also a ToF (Time of Flight) sensor. The ToF sensor is capable of delving more accurate bokeh picture. The smartphone also comes with a 32-MP selfie camera. Specifications Roundup © Huawei The P30 Pro has a 6.47-inch OLED Display and a 6.1-inch OLED display. It has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and has a teardrop design which houses the selfie camera. The smartphone comes with an all-glass finish with a gradient design when it comes to colours. The P30 Pro is powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 SoC and runs on Android Pie 9.1 out of the box. The P30 Pro as a 4,200 mAh battery and it also supports reverse wireless charging, just like the Mate 20 Pro and some other devices like the Galaxy S10. With P30 Pro, you also get a 40W USB-C fast charger for rapid charging. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The P30 Pro is also water resistant and has a rating of IP 68 while the P30 has a rating of IP 53. In terms of cameras, the main sensor is a 40 MP 27mm sensor with an f/1.6 aperture and optical image stabilization. The second camera is an ultra-wide sensor with an f/2.2 aperture. The telephoto lens or as Huawei calls it the periscope lens is an 8MP sensor that supports 5x optical zoom. The P30 Pro also supports high ISO levels of up to 409600 (P30 Pro), which basically means it can take awesome low-light shots. Pricing and availability The Huawei P30 Pro will only be offered in one variant i.e. 8GB & 256GB internal storage, and it's priced at Rs. 71,990. You'll be able to pick one up from Amazon India starting 16 April. P30 Lite In addition to the P30 Pro, Huawei has also launched the P30 Lite in India. It's essentially a toned down version the P30 Pro, and it's powered by the mid-range Kirin 710 SoC. Though the P30 Lite has the same design aesthetics as the P30 Pro, there are a few noteworthy differences. The P30 Lite doesn't have an in-display fingerprint scanner and has a physical scanner at the back. It also has a smaller 6.17-inch FHD LCD display. Also, the P30 Lite only has three cameras on the back consisting of a 24 MP primary camera, an 8 MP wide-angle lens and a 2 MP camera for the depth effect. Moving on to the pricing, the P30 Lite will cost Rs. 19,990 for the 4GB + 128GB while the 6GB + 128 GB variant will cost Rs 22,990. You can pick up the phone from Amazon starting 26 April.
  8. It is official ladies and gentleman, Virat Kohli and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are cursed for the entire 2019 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The first half of the match between RCB and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) gave the viewers the feeling that Virat Kohli and his side will finally pick up their first win of the season. The skipper played his best innings this year and his feat of 84 runs also helped him become only the second Indian cricketer to score 8000+ runs in the Twenty20 format, behind Suresh Raina. Kohli also became the fastest Indian to reach the milestone. The @RCBTweets Skipper departs after a terrific knock of 84 runs ðð#RCB 172/1 pic.twitter.com/bJl9RnuCCd — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 5, 2019 Even AB de Villiers, who was struggling to put up big numbers this year, came to Kohli's aide and played like his old self scoring quick 63 runs in just 32 balls to establish a rock-solid total of 205. Well into the second half of the game when it was KKR's turn to try and chase the massive score, it felt as if Bangalore can finally celebrate the win at their home ground. Even though batsmen like Chris Lynn, Robin Utthapa and Nitish Rana were able to put up decent numbers, the journey to chasing 205 runs seemed long and difficult. But the best (the worst for RCB) was yet to come. With the dismissal of KKR captain Dinesh Karthik, entered Andre Russell, who has been in superhuman form and has been referred to as the destroyer of bowlers on multiple occasions by multiple commentators. After taking four balls to dig his feet into the pitch, Russell looked locked and loaded to making the seemingly impossible task look like a child's play. The demolition of RCB and Virat Kohli's spirit began in the 17th over when Mohhamad Siraj bowled a beamer. As the ball paced for Russell's head he tried to deflect it with his bat. The velocity of the ball combined with the brute strength of the Carabean beast made the 'no-ball' travel across the boundary for a six. This delivery being Siraj's second beamer of the game forced him to give up the ball to Marcus Stoins, who in turn had to bowl the rest of the four deliveries of Siraj's over. Unfortunately for Stoins, the first ball he had to delivery was eligible for a 'free-hit'. Half-heartedly, the Aussie bowled at the length of 'the slot' which just happens to be Russell's favourite portion of the crease. Hitting a long maximum off the free-hit, Russell wanted to end the game as soon as possible. He then scored another six on the next ball and a hat-trick of sixes in the next over to tie the game at 205 runs a piece. Ruthless. Relentless. Russel ðªð¥ The absolute hitting that led to this though ðð@KKRiders @Russell12A #RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/4Ou1HzYS34 — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 5, 2019 The first ball of the over enabled the duo of Russell and Shubhman Gill to take an easy single to win the game. Watching the deconstruction of his dreams to finally win an IPL game this season, Kohli stood by the boundary line with his arms raised in amusement and eyes wide open in disbelief. While Twitter fans were awestruck by the Windies allrounder's showdown, our thoughts and prayers go out to the disheartened RCB fans who showed their frustration and anger online: Speechless. #RCBvKKR #VIVOIPL2019 — Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) April 5, 2019 RCB after every IPL match.. since 2008..#RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/SMzQ4fIs4O — Another Rohit (@which_rohit) April 5, 2019 Siraj's No ball costed RCB the game?

  9. I must confess, I was pretty disappointed by the lack of enthusiasm when it was announced that the Joker will have an individual movie and the supremely complicated and diabolical character will be played by none other than Joaquin Phoenix, the man who made a place in my heart since I saw the 'Gladiator'. via GIPHY I have always believed that this iconic DC villain deserves a movie of his own, so it goes without saying that I have been waiting for this for a very, very long time. Warner Brothers finally heard my prayers and, after months of teasing, finally dropped a trailer today and oh, it is glorious in every possible, dark and twisted way. The trailer shows the origin of Arthur Fleck, his troubled journey from being a small-time comedian to him finally embracing madness and becoming the Joker. Phoenix is dripping with brilliance here. No, I am not overselling this and saying this because I am a fan, but because of how effortlessly, with just a little smile, he is convincing as the clown prince of crime of Gotham City. via GIPHY His slow descent into complete madness, how he tries to bring a little laughter into the world and fails and how the 'happy face' comes to life…makes for a chilling watch. via GIPHY Also, that eerily unsettling score by Hildur Guðnadóttir is frikking perfect and just builds up to the glorious crazy. Anyway, excuse me while I go watch this a million times. Joker releases on October 4.
  10. It has been a couple of years since Apple has launched a 'small' iPhone. The last small and compact phone from the company was the iPhone SE that came out all the way back in 2016. Well, if the new report is something to go by, then it looks like Apple might finally launch a compact iPhone next year. According to DigiTimes, Apple is readying new iPhones for 2020 with display sizes - 5.43-inch, 6.06-inch, and 6.67-inch. Looks like the company will be sourcing the displays from Samsung or LG. The current lineup, in case you're wondering, has display sizes of 5.8-inch (iPhone XS), 6.1-inch (iPhone XR), and 6.5-inch (iPhone XS Max). So, if it turns out to be true, Apple will reduce the size of the smallest model while increasing the size of the biggest model. © Unsplash We're not entirely sure as to what Apple is planning to call these new iPhones, though. But if we were to guess, then the smallest iPhone would be called iPhone SE2, which has been passing the rumour mill for quite some time now. But again, that raises questions about the names of other iPhones, so your guess is as good as ours, really.
  11. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) has been in hot waters for a while now in India. From being banned to people getting arrested for playing it while the ban was in force, there has been a lot of chit-chat about the game. But now after a lot of criticism on social media, the ban imposed by the state of Gujarat on PUBG Mobile has finally been lifted. The decision came straight from the police commissioner A K Singh, after taking feedback from the public. © PUBG Corp. “Today is the last day of the proclamation we had issued. Yesterday, this matter came up for review and we decided that as the exam session is over and the direct trigger to initiating the action is not valid any more, we will not renew the proclamation. We have also taken public reaction into account, said the commissioner.' The game, in case you don't know, was banned for being violent and for inciting violence. It was also leading to accidental deaths, kids stealing money to buy in-game items, and more. Of course, banning the game wasn't an ideal solution, but that's apparently what the majority of people wanted. © PUBG Corp. Well, now that the ban has been lifted, let's not get carried away and spend all of our time playing it. It's high time that we, the players of the game, give it some thought and take some responsibility of our actions. Unless you are looking to dive in professionally, gaming is just a form of entertainment. Too much of it is not good for both your physical as well as mental health. As it turns out, you may even end up getting a game banned or end up in a jail for playing too much. So, let's focus on creating a healthy gaming environment, and enjoy ourselves while we are at it.
  12. Marvel is honestly just weird. For months, there was nothing, literally nothing, not even a name for the movie, but now they just keep bombarding us with so many things related to 'Avengers: Endgame' without giving us time to emotionally deal with it. The newest teaser trailer dropped showing all kinds of reunions and everyone was just like 'this is not a drill, it's happening' when we saw Tony Stark and Steve Rogers reuniting and shaking hands. They haven't seen each other since 'Captain America: Civil War' and finally got a reunion that they deserve. It sucks because of that giant purple grape but at least it happened. This particular one-minute teaser was the most impactful, at least for me, just because it had so much happening. Every second was like a very important detail that will be a crucial part of the movie. So obviously it makes sense that people still haven't been able to deal with it and are still very emotional. The best part, tbh. That handshake between Tony and Cap ð¤©ð¤https://t.co/qxdEBXRrYl — Luke Dionise (@LukeDionise) April 2, 2019 Finally!

  13. Google has finally come around and removed the controversial anti-gay app called “conversion therapy” from the Play Store today. The company faced pressure from gay-rights lobbyists that led to the removal of the app from Google's application store. © Google Play The app was developed by Living Hope Ministries, a religious group that was started 30 years ago. HRC, a prominent LGBTQ rights organisation has an index which measures equality in corporations. It's called the Corporate Equality Index and it included a footnote that was still available to download on Google Play Store. In the report it said “… Conversion therapy can lead to depression, anxiety, drug use, homelessness, and suicide,” the HRC wrote in its index. “Pending remedial steps by the company to address this app that can cause harm to the LGBTQ community, the [Corporate Equality Index] rating is suspended.” © Twitter/ For representation purposes only The decision to remove the app came 24 hours after the report excluded a rating for Google in the equality index. “After consulting with outside advocacy groups, reviewing our policies, and making sure we had a thorough understanding of the app and its relation to conversion therapy, we've decided to remove it from the Play Store, consistent with other app stores," a Google spokesman said in a statement. © Reuters Google had previously scored a perfect 100 score on the index however this was the first time in 17 years the rating had been withheld for the company. Apple removes the controversial app in December 2018 from the App Store and Amazon followed suit as well. The app was available on the Play Store as of yesterday but has now been removed.

  14. With the sudden influx of immense talent into first class and mainstream cricket for Team India, even being great seems to be inadequate in order to become a member of the Men in Blue. The position requires brilliance beyond measure and with the margin of error negligible. That's a 5-wkt haul for @yuzi_chahal ðð#AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/GReuwxIjIu — BCCI (@BCCI) January 18, 2019 While Yuzvendra Chahal and chinaman Kuldeep Yadav have been well settled in the main team, players like Ravindra Jadeja, who have staggered just a little in the recent past, have been turned a blind eye towards by the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) selectors, it is highly disappointing to see a great cricketer like Ravichandran Ashwin waste his prime years sitting at home, waiting by the telephone, just hoping to get a call for the next ODI series. Having not played a single ODI game with Virat Kohli and the rest of the team since 30th June 2017 against the Windies at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, the last time Ashwin was seen representing India was on 6th December 2018 in the first of five Test-game series against Tim Paine's Australian cricket team at Adelaide Oval. Still on the 6th position in ICC rankings for all-rounders in Test cricket format, the 32-year-old's inability to stay fit has caused him his berth in the Indian cricket team and may finally have led to him losing it for good. Time and again, Ashwin has made various remarks over his growing vexation with not getting a call from the Indian selectors. "It entirely depends on what other people (team management and selectors) perceive of my cricket. It's definitely not in my control," Ashiwin had said in a press conference just days after being axed from the ODI roster in July last year. The competition for every single spot on India's ICC World Cup 2019 roster is not so easy, to say the least and despite Ashwin coming out in public and openly showing his desire to play on the biggest stage of the cricketing world dressed in the blue jersey, he might just miss out on the opportunity to play for his country this year. "There is competition in terms of Chahal and Kuldeep who have done incredibly well in the last few months. Massive credit to them. But I do feel there will be a time for me at some stage. Because I didn't go out on account of bad performances," a hopeful Ashwin had said on Salaam Cricket 2018. "I'm always hopeful of what I can achieve in any given game. Like most of the others I believe I can crack a game open with the way I bowl because I'm a very brave bowler. Keeping all these things in mind, World Cup is something which every cricketer wants to play and I do want to play it," Ashwin said. However, with less than two and a half months left for the World Cup, no hints have been dropped by the BCCI over Ashwin's spot in the team. After waiting for two years to return to the team, the frustration may finally have broken Ashwin. His so called “instinctive decision” to 'mankad' English batsman Jos Buttler in the IPL match between Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royal therefore seems to be nothing more than an agitated cry for attention. Ashwin waited for him to get out of the crease. It is obvious for batsman to consider the ball is been released at that given moment when he completed the bowling stride. He just set a bad example as a captain! #mankading pic.twitter.com/4LXDzMcJhl — Chowkidar Devendra singh (@Devendra5611) March 26, 2019 Winning a simple league match at the cost of hatred from millions of fans of the game may not be what Ashwin had thought of heading towards Sawai Mansingh Stadium but the amount of attention the incident has gathered may bring back the spotlight on the Indian all-rounder.
  15. For the longest of time, we've wanted the education board to add more meaningful subjects in the school curriculum that would help the students in the long run in the future. Well now, it looks like it's finally happening as the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is introducing Artificial Intelligence (A.I) as an elective subject for the high-school students. © Pexels The same was confirmed by a member of the board's governing body who spoke to The Hindustan Times. According to the official, the decision to introduce Artificial Intelligence as a school subject was taken during a session held at the NITI Aayog. The subject would be introduced in classes 8, 9 and 10 as a skill subject, and the board decided to modernize its curriculum to help the student stay abreast of the latest developments. In addition to the introduction of the subject, the body member also noted that the board will also help building schools for the teaching-learning of the new subject from the next academic session in its capacity. The member said, “Syllabus for the new subject would be drafted for all the three classes. If required, the board will also help in the capacity building of schools for the teaching-learning of the new subject from the next academic session”. © Pexels In addition to artificial intelligence, the board has also decided to introduce yoga and early childhood education as elective subjects at senior secondary level. The CBSE has 20,299 schools in the country and 220 schools in 25 other countries affiliated to it, so we're certain that this decision will benefit a lot of students in the long run. Now, we hope more subjects like this would be added to the curriculum to help the students studying the other boards as well.
  16. 'Call of Duty' publisher Activision is teaming up with Tencent Timi Studio to bring its massively popular first-person shooter franchise 'Call of Duty' to Android and iOS. The game will simply be called 'Call of Duty: Mobile'. 'Call of Duty: Mobile' is a free-to-play multiplayer title which draws inspiration from some of the popular 'Call of Duty' titles like Modern Warfare and Black Ops.

Commenting on the release, Activision VP of mobile Chris Plummer said, “Together with the amazing team at Tencent, we're bringing together a collection of the most beloved maps, competitive modes, familiar characters, and signature weapons from across this storied franchise into one epic experience for the first time on mobile.” © Call of Duty In case you're just as excited as we are about this game, you can head over to the game's official website and sign up to be the first one to get notified about its launch. We still don't have an official release date yet, but a public beta is coming this summer, so stay tuned for more info.
  17. Google has finally launched its music streaming service in the form of YouTube Music and YouTube Premium for users who like a seamless video content experience. YouTube already has a vast catalogue of music that also includes radio channels, live performances and user-generated content. © Twitter YouTube has also introduced YouTube Premium that basically lets users consume content without any interruptions from advertisements. The Premium subscription also lets users play videos in the background even when users lock a smartphone or switch apps. YouTube Music Premium will also let users download songs in order to play when offline. YouTube Premium will be available for Rs 129 a month, will include membership to YouTube Music Premium, and access to all YouTube Originals. YouTube Music Premium is available at a monthly rental of Rs 99 and as part of the introductory offer, YouTube is offering a three-month subscription of YouTube Music Premium for free. Announcing the launch of YouTube Music in India, Lyor Cohen, Global Head of Music, YouTube said, “India is where the multi-lingual music scene thrives. It's interesting to note how Indian artists have consistently claimed top spots over the last few months in the Global YouTube Top Artists chart. With YouTube Music, we are hoping to bring the best in global and Indian music to millions of fans across India, and give them an immersive music experience, with the magic of music on YouTube.” T.Jay Fowler, Director of Product Management, Music Products, YouTube said, “We know that India loves watching music videos on YouTube -- be it the vibrancy, choreography, stars and glamour. Music from India has always been so much more than just the audio. Therefore for us, with the launch of YouTube Music, all the emphasis is on the familiar and to make every user experience richer as they start using the service. From recommended music videos, live performances, covers, to new videos -- it's all here, and only here." YouTube has been a popular platform for streaming music with access to thousands of playlists across various genres.
  18. A Boeing 737 MAX 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed just a few minutes after take-off on Sunday, killing all 157 onboard. Just five months back, another 737 MAX 8 aircraft operated by Lion Air crashed off the shore of Java and all 189 onboard lost their lives. Two crashes of the same jetliner within a span of five months has shocked everyone and the Ethiopian Airlines immediately grounded their MAX 8 fleet. This was soon followed by China declaring a complete ban on the aircraft in its air space. Britain, France and Germany joined a growing list of countries to ban 737 MAX planes from their airspace as airlines around the world grounded the jets. © Utkarsh Thakkar / @vimanspotter India's DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) has finally decided to ground the aircraft as well. The Ministry of Civil Aviation said the planes will be grounded till appropriate modifications and safety measures are undertaken to ensure safe operations. Spicejet operates 13 MAX 8's and has 200 of them on order. Yesterday, the airline defended the plane saying "The Boeing 737 MAX is a highly sophisticated aircraft". It further added, "It has flown hundreds of thousands of hours globally and some of the world's largest airlines are flying this aircraft." © Wikimedia Even Jet Airways has 5 of them in fleet currently, but they have been grounded for weeks since the airline is undergoing payment issues with lessors. We expect Spicejet flights to be affected massively in the coming days since the MAX 8 contributes heavily to their network. It's evident the local regulator came under immense scrutiny from the press and aviation experts after it released a statement yesterday that didn't warrant an immediate ban on the plane. In fact, the DGCA asked airlines to roster pilots with more than 1,000 hours of flying experience for the MAX 8. In comparison, the Ethiopian Airlines pilot had more than 8,000 hours of flying on record. © Reuters Flying the MAX 8 isn't about crew expertise and preliminary reports from the Lion Air crash have suggested a major software design flaw on Boeing's end. It is too early to say whether the two crashes are related, but we also cannot ignore the fact that the plane could have a serious design flaw. Boeing said it understood the countries' actions but retained "full confidence" in the 737 MAX and had safety as its priority. The MAX series is its fastest-selling family of planes, with more than 5,000 orders placed to date from about 100 customers. © Utkarsh Thakkar / @vimanspotter (Boeing 737-800 NG) Please keep in mind, the affected plane is Boeing 737 MAX 8 and is different from 737 NG Family (737-700/800/900). The latter has been flying for more than two decades and has a spotless track record. The 737-800 is the primary workhorse of Jet Airways and Spicejet in India.
  19. Huawei debuted the Watch GT back in October last year alongside its Mate 20 series of smartphones. The company took its time, but the watch has finally been launched in India today. The new Huawei Watch GT Sports edition is priced at Rs 15,990 and the Classic edition is priced at 16,990. It'll be available for purchase via Amazon India starting March 19. The Huawei Watch GT sports a 1.39-inch OLED touch screen with a resolution of 454x454 pixels. The watch has a 46.5mm round dial and it has a stainless-steel body, available in black or metal finishes. It also comes with interchangeable straps and is also water resistant up to 50 meters. © YouTube Moving on to the software, the Watch GT runs on Huawei's proprietary software called LightOS. Only time will tell if it's better than Google's WearOS, but Huawei says the watch can deliver up to 2 weeks of battery life. Yes, Huawei says that you can go up to 2 weeks on a single charge, and should take you roughly about 2 hours to top up the battery. Huawei has also packed the watch with some fitness-centric features such as constant heart-rate monitoring, sleep-tracking and more. The Watch GT has GPS, and it will take advantage of technologies like TruSeen 3.0 heart rate monitoring and TruSleep 2.0 to give you accurate measurements. In addition to the fitness-focused features, you obviously get the basic smartwatch features like the ability to check notifications of messages, calls, reminders, and alarms. The Huawei Watch GT also comes with an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, ambient light sensor, and more. © Huawei The Watch GT supports Bluetooth v4.2 and NFC, however, it lacks the Wi-Fi support. It packs 16MB RAM and 128MB ROM, and it's compatible with smartphones running Android 4.4 or later or iOS 9.0 or later. You can pick up the Huawei Watch GT with either a leather or a silicone strap in a bunch of different colours.
  20. Probably one of the most hardworking and well respected members of the Indian and international cricket fraternity, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was one of the athletes who was kept in the spotlight for the infamous spot-fixing incident that took place in 2013. The event rose to actor Vindu Dara Singh and the Chennai Super Kings leader Gurunath Meiyappan being arrested by the Mumbai Police on alleged betting rows and maintaining close contact with the bookies. During the investigation, a lot of players were interrogated and pressurised to break, in order to come out with the truth. “The team was involved, I was accused too. It was a tough phase for all of us,” said a very serious MS Dhoni in the trailer for 'Roar of the Lion', a Hotstar documentary. “Fans felt that the punishment was harsh. Coming back was an emotional moment and I have always said, what doesn't kill you makes you strong.” In 2017, a committee established by Justice Mukul Mudgal surfaced a report which basically describes Dhoni's willingness to play according to the demands of the bookies against a match against the Rajasthan Royals. © India Today “The biggest crime that I can commit is not a murder, it is actually match fixing,” said the former Indian skipper. Watch how @msdhoni and a bunch of men in yellow jerseys wrote one of India's greatest comeback stories. #HotstarSpecials is proud to present #RoarOfTheLion. Trailer out. pic.twitter.com/nkWpV1EPnl — Hotstar Specials (@HotstarSpecials) March 10, 2019 When Meiyappan was found guilty of the crimes, the entire Chennai Super Kings franchise was barred from competition for two years, keeping the then two-time IPL champs away from the league in 2016 and 2017. During the span of two years, MSD was bought by the brand new franchise, Rising Pune Supergiant in 2016. While the franchise came seventh amongst eight teams that year, they succeeded to make it to the final the next season, only to lose to Rohit Sharma and the Mumbai Indians. After the ban on CSK was lifted the next season in 2018, Dhoni retained his 'Thala' status as he, along with Suresh Raina, got the city of Chennai their third IPL title.
  21. You can finally play your PlayStation 4 (PS4) games on your iPad or your iPhone via Sony's Remote Play App. The application was already available on Android, considering it was first launched on the Xperia Z3 way back in October 2013. It has taken Sony 4.5 years to get the same feature for iOS devices. © SONY In order to use this feature, you will need to update your PS4, download the RemotePlay app on your iOS device and pair the two. The controller layout is overlaid on the screen and if you want to play on your iOS device, it will work best when paired with a third party controller. You cannot pair the PS4 controller with an iPhone or an iPad unless your device is jailbroken. iOS is a huge platform and bringing the functionally will be a massive expansion for streaming games. There are plenty of MFi gamepads you can use in order to play PlayStation games on your iPad. You can use the SteelSeries Nimbus as a gamepad and map the controls exactly like on the PlayStation 4 controller. © Sony Having said that, you will not be able to play PS4 games remotely such as via a mobile network. You will need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi in order for the function to work. You will also need an iPhone 7 or sixth-generation iPad or later to make the application work with your PS4. The new update has been rolled out for the PS4 and in the 6.5 version of the update, users can also remap the 'X' and 'O' buttons on the controller. Japanese consoles have to use the 'O' button for the “Enter” command, however, you can now remap it to 'X' or the other way around.
  22. Okay, it's like an excitement bomb dropped at us. It's dinner time and most of us are either on our way back home or planning what to eat for dinner on a mundane Tuesday night . However, everything changed a few minutes ago because guys, please drop everything as the much awaited trailer for the final season in now here! The final war of Winter is embarking upon us. Arya Stark is obviously not scared of death and wants to stare right back at it, everyone's anxious about what the Night King's army is getting towards them. Khaleesi and Jon Snow make a tiny appearance in the trailer, Cersei is obviously not the one who gives up so easily so its good to see her conniving smile again. Well, a man is going to rewatch that insane trailer which leads us to so many questions! Winter is FINALLY coming and we actually cannot wait now. Well the trailer sure leaves us on a cliffhanger and obviously it's the only thing people are talking about on social media. “the trailer is here. #GameOfThrones “ everyone: pic.twitter.com/TJnA0mgHMW — katy (@kxty11) March 5, 2019 «I know death, he's got many faces, I look forward to seeing this one...»#GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/YP24VwRon6 — â Víctor M. â (@Victorhml) March 5, 2019 Everyone is thinking the same thing, right?

  23. It's been almost four years since we've seen a brand new Halo game ever since 'Halo 5: Guardians'. 'Halo Infinite', is one of the most awaited follow-ups in the Halo franchise and we will finally get to see it at E3 2019. © 343 Industries 343 Industries, the studio that took charge of the 'Halo' franchise after Bungie, is going to be present at E3 later this year. Bonnie Ross, 343 Industries boss told IGN that the game director Chris Lee will discuss more details about the upcoming game in June. Currently, not much is known about 'Halo: Infinite, however, Ross did confirm that the game director will be discussing the new engine i.e. “SlipSpace”. 'Halo Infinite' was first announced at E3 2018 via a teaser that showed off the game's new engine's capabilities. The trailer showed a big space with warthog travelling the environment. It had beautiful vistas and massive landscapes. Since it was a teaser, we can't be entirely sure if this would be the end result in the full game. Having said that, it would be nice to see how the game has been shaping up in the past year. E3 is still one of the biggest gaming events where new games and products are announced. Since there is 'Infinite' in the title, we're expecting the new Halo game to be a big affair. It's also rumoured that Microsoft will announce two new consoles this year for the next generation. Halo Infinite's launch may also coincide with the launch of new consoles. © 343 Industries 'Halo Infinite' is expected to have RPG-style mechanics and is expected to be a “spiritual reboot” of the franchise. The game is expected to launch for Xbox One, PC and possibly the next-gen consoles. We will know more about 'Halo Infinite' later this year during E3, which is scheduled to commence on June 11th.

  24. Xiaomi has been teasing the launch of the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro for more than a month, and the brand has finally launched the phone in India today. It was first unveiled in China and since then, anticipation around its India launch had been on the rise. With Samsung launching a host of new budget and midrange phones, the Redmi Note 7 has a lot of expectations to meet. It's predecessor Redmi Note 6 and Note 5 have been the best-selling phones in the country, thanks to a perfect balance of features. The phones have proved to be an apt offering for every kind of user, right from performance enthusiasts to photography nerds. © Xiaomi Keeping the same in mind, the Redmi Note 7 intends to be another deal buster.

  25. A year ago, Spotify officially announced its plans of expanding to India, and the company has finally made its way here. While Netflix is the most popular video streaming platform worldwide, Spotify holds the same title in the music streaming segment. The company has the highest number of paying subscribers in the world and India is the 79th where Spotify has launched. It operates on a "freemium" model, meaning users can access all songs for free, but they're streamed at a lower quality and the app has ads to monetize the consumption. The motto is to convert free users to a paid subscription and in return offer more features like high-quality playback and no ads. © Spotify The service in India will come with more than four crore songs and 300 crore playlists offering Indian and international music, across moods and moments. The company has already partnered with T-Series and Sony for local licensing and is currently fighting in court against the Warner Music Group (WMG). The app has built-in multilingual recommendations and specially curated playlists for listeners in India and new users can avail a 30-day trial of the Premium offering. To access, you can either visit the website or download the Android. © Reuters In terms of pricing, the simple one month plan costs just Rs 119 (US$ 1.67), compared to US$ 9.99 (Rs 700) in the United States. Spotify is offering a wide array of flexible subscription options, including a yearly plan that costs Rs 1,189. If you don't want a recurring subscription, a top-up can be availed and it costs Rs 13 per day and can go up till Rs 719 for six months. The platform has also integrated local payment options like UPI and PayTM, in addition to debit and credit cards. © Reuters In comparison, Apple Music costs Rs 120 per month, JioSaavn is free for Jio users (limited period), and Google Play Music charges Rs 99 per month. Amazon Music comes bundled with Prime and costs Rs 1,000 per year (includes Prime Video). While the platform is popular for its music collection and suggestive algorithm, it'll require a ton of local content to succeed in India. And Spotify says plans to solve this in a mutual way. "India has an incredibly rich music culture, and to best serve this market, we're launching a custom-built experience. Not only will Spotify bring Indian artists to the world, we will also bring the world's music to fans across India,” said Daniel Ek, Spotify's Founder and CEO.
