  1. Virat Kohli has become the face of cricket and not just in India but the entire world. He has taken the responsibility of leading the most influential team in the international scenario while somehow managing to keep up with his batting prowess. The transformation that he has brought about in himself and the Indian cricket team is considered to be revolutionary by his supporters and critics alike. Therefore, it is highly likely that that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would want you to forget about some of the eyebrow-raising things the Indian captain has done in the past: 5. Flipping The Bird: © Twitter A young Virat Kohli showing the finger to the intimidating Australian crowd at Sydney Cricket Ground is something the âgentlemen of cricketâ would certainly frown upon. Yes, the Aussie cricket fans are known to get under the skin of the opponents but for a cricketer to revert, especially with a not-so-subtle hand gesture, got Kohli in the wrong kind of limelight in 2011. Kohli was fined 50% of his match fee for unprofessionalism on the field. "The matter has been sorted out. The player felt guilty and sorry and the matter has been closed," India team media manager GS Walia said, according to a 2012 BBC report. "When he went to the match referee, he said sorry and that 'out of emotions I must have done it'. 4. The Clash Of The Delhiites: © Twitter Ah, how the âDilli se hun bhench*dâ attitude got the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli in an altercation against Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir, whoâs also from Delhi (who would have guessed, huh?) during the sixth season of the Indian Premier League. Considered to be one of the worst fights of the league till date, it broke out as Kohli lost his wicket but instead of moving back to the pavilion, he stood next to the pitch and started a verbal battle with his India teammate, who was celebrating with his KKR team nearby. What could have turned into a fistfight was thankfully disrupted by Rajat Bhatia, another Delhi lad! 3. Abusive Misidentity: © Twitter By 2015, MS Dhoni had retired from Test cricket and Kohli became the new red-ball captain of the team. However, he still needed some fine-tuning with his hotheadedness. After a practice session during World Cup 2015, Kohli lashed out at a journalist and abused him badly for writing a bad article about his future wife, Anushka Sharma, only to find out that it was the wrong person. Clearly the Indian cricket team and the Indian cricket board want you to forget about it as they denied anything of such manner taking place, despite Indian media covering it at length. 2. Bad History With ICC Tournaments © Twitter Virat Kohli has been an excellent chaser throughout his professional career when it comes to bilateral series in any format of the game, but there is one stain that continues to attach itself to the captainâs name - not winning any ICC tournament. The last time India won an ICC tournament was in 2013, under the leadership of MS Dhoni. Ever since, India has developed more of a âchokersâ tag, especially when it matters the most. Virat kohli tested positive for being a choker in ICC knockouts. â ANSHUMAN (@AvengerReturns) March 14, 2020 It is not only Kohliâs record as a captain but also as a batsman that takes a massive hit during the knockout rounds. The biggest proof of this is the 2015 World Cup during which Kohli maintained a decent form until the semi finals and headed back to the dressing room with just one run under his name while India tried to chase Australiaâs 328. 1. Anil Kumbleâs Resignation Letter © Twitter Arguably the most talked-about controversy that Kohli has been a part of, is and probably will always be, his rift with Indian legend and former head coach of the Men in Blue in Anil Kumble. The two never met eye to eye but the situation got out of hand specifically after the disappointing end of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017. Thank you! pic.twitter.com/eF5qVzdBRj â Anil Kumble (@anilkumble1074) June 20, 2017Stories of problems between Kumble and Kohli leaked out, people began to ask questions and by the end of June 2017, Kumble stepped down from his role as the coach. That he directly mentioned Kohliâs âreservationsâ with the way he worked in his resignation letter, also wouldnât make a case in the captainâs favour. View the full article
  2. Every year, we see some sort of advancement in the display tech. From smartphones to TVs, there's a lot happening in the display space and we can't wait to see what comes our way in the future. In the meantime, there's a company called Mojo Vision, that's showcasing what it believes in the future of display tech. A smart contact lens that acts as a display. Yes, you read that right. So, Mojo Vision showcased a single lens that's embedded with some circuits with a tiny dot in the center. © Mojo Vision Mojo Vision is essentially making a smart contact lens that'll act as a display. Obviously, the tech is nowhere close to being ready, which is why we said it's the "future of display". At CES (Consumer Electronics Show) this year, Mojo Vision was showing lens with some sort of text displayed in a loop. The company says there is a ton of text info that can be displayed. You can see things like time, date, health data, heart rate, and more. You can also read messages from your friends. It sounds very similar to the smart glasses, but except in this case, it's a lens. Besides, it also says they're still working to make smart contact lens a true solution. They want the product to be so good that it's ready to enter the market as something that people can buy and wear it on a daily basis. That makes sense, but we're not entirely sure if/ when that'll happen. © Mojo Vision However, imagine a world in which you're wearing just a contact lens to consume the media. No additional devices required whatsoever. Heck, you don't even need a smartphone or a pocket device. It could be as simple as talking to a digital assistant and getting things projected on the lens. It's certainly the kind of cyberpunk world we want to live in, but it could be many years away from now. Source: WIRED View the full article
  3. Have you ever noticed the "Games" button inside some applications like your mobile web browser or, say, a wallet app? Weird, right? Like why would there be an option to play games on a casual app that has nothing to do with gaming? Turns out, it's a strategy used by app makers to boost user engagement. In simple terms, it makes users spend more time within their app and even makes one come back for more. It's called gamification, and a lot of apps that you use on a day-to-day basis use it. Just go back to your phone right now and see how many of the apps you use on a daily basis have games inside them. You'll be surprised. © Gamezop An Indian company called "Gamezop" is one of the major players in this industry. It's essentially a gaming platform that powers gaming experience in thousands of app in India. We're talking about HTML5 games here, so they're nothing intense. But they can be super addictive at times, making you come back for more. And that addiction is what these platforms like Gamezop are banking on. To get a better understanding of how these games work and how platforms like Gamezop are thriving on them, I spoke to Yashash Agrawal, one of the founding members of Gamezop. © YouTube "At Gamezop, our goal is to acquire more users and cater to them rather than pushing app installs. It has allowed us to reach millions of users without any marketing spend whatsoever," said Yash when I asked him about his company. In case you're still scratching your head, let me tell you that Gamezop is merely acting as a distribution network for these games. No, they're not making games of their own. Instead, they license these games from over 250 partners and put them in the right place. And when I say right place, I really mean it. These games are positioned in a way to grab maximum attention. They even show up as pop-ups on certain apps, so the chances of you missing it are quite less. But How Are They Making Money Out Of This? Ads! As an aggregator, Gamezop has managed to place its games on some of the most popular apps like Mozilla Firefox, Ixigo, NewsPoint, among others. So whenever a user decides to play a game, he/ she will have to sit through an ad. It's similar to how you watch videos on YouTube. Obviously, I wasn't given an accurate number when it comes to the revenue, but given the number of monthly active users, I am inclined to believe that I'd be aplenty. And it must've gotten only better with the introduction of real-money gaming format. When it comes to such games, users will be asked to pay money to enter a game that promises real-money prizes. That's directly going to the aggregator, which in this case is Gamezop, without having to rely on an ad impression. The Way Forward According to Yash, there's a huge scope to expand their operations. I've been told that Gamezop has 800 partners in India. But considering the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of apps from Indian developers alone, with millions more worldwide, I can only imagine the growth opportunity here. Yash and the team seem to be quite optimistic about their business model and they think the affordable mobile data and the need for entertainment on-the-go are going to make things better. These games are obviously not for everyone. Some of you may even hate these, but it's worth making a note that millions of users still enjoy playing them over other mainstream titles. They're easy to access and free-to-play. What else do you need? View the full article
  4. Heart, we will forget him, You and I, tonight! You must forget the warmth he gave, I will forget the light. When you have done pray tell me, Then I, my thoughts, will dim. Haste! 'lest while you're lagging I may remember him! ---- Emily Dickinson
  5. I want you to know one thing. You know how this is: if I look at the crystal moon, at the red branch of the slow autumn at my window, if I touch near the fire the impalpable ash or the wrinkled body of the log, everything carries me to you, as if everything that exists, aromas, light, metals, were little boats that sail toward those isles of yours that wait for me. Well, now, if little by little you stop loving me I shall stop loving you little by little. If suddenly you forget me do not look for me, for I shall already have forgotten you. If you think it long and mad, the wind of banners that passes through my life, and you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots, remember that on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms and my roots will set off to seek another land. But if each day, each hour, you feel that you are destined for me with implacable sweetness, if each day a flower climbs up to your lips to seek me, ah my love, ah my own, in me all that fire is repeated, in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten, my love feeds on your love, beloved, and as long as you live it will be in your arms without leaving mine. ---- If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda
  6. Air Force One is undoubtedly one of the most popular planes on the planet. It's responsible for carrying the President of The United States and is a symbol of the country's might. Thanks to multiple Hollywood films and documentaries, the aircraft is globally recognised and a treat for aviation geeks. Though there's another plane that follows the Air Force One, and it's actually a lot cooler. Often dubbed as the "Doomsday Plane", it is America's secretive jet designed to survive a nuclear war. In the event of Armageddon, it'll the U.S. Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other top personalities alive whilst the president would be on board the Air Force One. © USAF Technically called the E-4B, it's a modified version of the Boeing 747-200 and officially called the National Airborne Operation Centers. The design of the plane is meant to survive an electromagnetic pulse with all the systems left intact. Currently, there are four planes in the fleet and always available on standby to shadow the Air Force One. © Aiirsoure Military / YouTube Nuclear explosions emit a strong electromagnetic pulse that can severely damage electronic circuits (computer chips), hence the E-4B additionally uses traditional analogue flight instruments to navigate. In operation since the 1970s, these aircraft have been considered to be the best chance for a Cold War president to survive a nuclear attack. © USAF The plane isn't designed to offer comfort and focus has been on utility. They can carry dozens of military analysts, strategists and communication aids to enable a working government from the sky. Another special feature includes a five-mile-long trailing wire antenna that would ensure that the president could remain in contact with the nuclear submarine fleet even after ground-based communications had been destroyed. Based out of Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska, the planes are always ready to fly at a moments notice. According to aviation forums, one aircraft is usually airborne every 12 hours, with another one ready for departure with a 5-minute notice. © US Government Boeing stopped making the 747-200 long back and the U.S Government has been planning to phase out the Air Force One (VC-25A). Even the E-4B needs a replacement soon because the airframe has been used extensively and older spare parts are harder to find for regular maintenance. Fun Fact: You can fly this plane in GTA V via a mod!
  7. Call it having an eye for spotting the most hilarious, amazing, and sometimes bizarre things happening around the world, or having a great mind to appreciate humour, Anand Mahindra has never failed to impress us with his knowledge and wit. Honestly, Mahindra's Twitter account should be officially named a 'national treasure', because you can find all kinds of valuable information and priceless memes there. While everyone is talking about 'JCB Ki Khudai' i.e. random JCB videos and memes, Anand Mahindra has moved on to a road roller and the insane benefits we never knew the machine had. © Twitter Road rollers are basically used to compact soil, gravel, concrete or asphalt in the construction of roads and foundations, right? But, thanks to Anand Mahindra's tweet and the guy who plastered a certain poster that we now know that it can actually be used for body massage. Anand Mahindra wrote while sharing this picture, "Hilarious. After this massage, you'll never need another one; it'll be a permanent remedy for all ailments..." Clearly, we'll never be able complain about body pain again. Hilarious. After this massage, you'll never need another one; it'll be a permanent remedy for all ailments... (The guy who plastered that poster either had a delicious sense of humour or a seriously low IQ!) pic.twitter.com/92UIQaCmhq — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) June 3, 2019 People are loving this brilliant jugaad for body massage and it's just for Rs 499, so what else can we possibly ask for?

  8. There was a time when people were dangerously walking around on roads holding their smartphones looking for Pokemon. Well, the 'Pokemon Go' craze may have died down, but you may start seeing people doing the same thing again, except this time for Microsoft's new AR game called 'Minecraft Earth'. That's right, Microsoft has just revealed a new AR game for both Android and iOS called 'Minecraft Earth', and it's essentially a game that'll put life-sized Minecraft holograms of virtual trees, houses, etc. into the real world. Much like 'Pokemon Go' which made AR gaming a thing, 'Minecraft Earth' will also rely on your smartphone as a window into the virtual world. In 'Minecraft Earth', however, you won't find yourself running into, say, a Pikachu. You'll literally be building elaborate Minecraft creations that others can see and experience for themselves. From what it looks like, 'Minecraft Earth' is still the same game which a lot of us have been playing for a long time. Just like in the original version of 'Minecraft', you'll be hunting for resources, exploring new areas for creation, etc. The only difference being you'll be doing it out in the real world via a smartphone, instead of your TV or the computer screen. © Microsoft There's still a lot that we don't know about this game, but it looks like a lot of fun. Microsoft says it'll kick off a closed beta of 'Minecraft Earth' this summer on iOS and Android. We believe that it'll be super-limited at launch and it'll be rolling out in select locations. Don't worry though, it'll be available for free to download on both Android and iOS when it officially arrives whenever Microsoft thinks it's ready for a release.
  9. The internet can truly be a weird place at times. No seriously, it's true. A few months ago, people were getting out of their moving cars and even planes to dance to a song. Now, youngsters are uploading selfies with cockroaches as a part of the ongoing #CockroachChallenge. What? Yes, it is just as messed up as it sounds. People are literally taking selfies with the creepy crawlers on their faces. That's right, ON THEIR FACES! This messed up obsession started when a Facebook user named Alex Aung from Myanmar posted a picture with a cockroach on his face last month. He captioned it asking if others can do it? Well, there you go. That's how you start a new trend, folks. Alex posted the picture on Facebook on April 20, and it now has close to 6,000 likes and close to 20,000 people have shared it. Even if it wasn't intentional, his post clearly went viral on social media and it literally started a new trend. Soon after he posted the picture, people are started commenting with their entries for the challenge in the comments. In fact, some people took it upon themselves to find creative ways to get attention. Like this picture of a girl who's swallowing a cockroach instead of putting it on her face. Like, what even? What started off as a trend on Facebook, now seems to have extended to Twitter as well. Youngsters from Myanmar, Philippines and Indonesia are the ones who seem to be taking a lot of interest in taking up the challenge. Did somebody told them how stupid they look in the pictures? #cockroachchallenge #kecoachallenge ð» pic.twitter.com/qzORVWKyYt — hugable! ð» (@yourxhxxxn) April 28, 2019 We're not even going to share anymore pictures of the challenge. They're very creepy. Just look up #CockroachChallenge on Facebook or Twitter if you want to see them for some weird reason. That being said, it's worth pointing out that Cockroach challenge is just as dangerous as Kiki challenge, if not more. PestWorld.org noted that the cockroach feces, saliva, etc. contains certain proteins that can cause allergic reactions or trigger asthma-related symptoms. So, besides looking like an idoit, you're also putting yourself in some serious danger by taking up this challenge.
  10. If you know a thing or two about K-Pop, then you'd probably be aware of the boy-band BTS. Well, their latest single, “Boy With Luv”, featuring Halsey has shattered the record for most YouTube views in 24 hours. That's right, the music video of the latest single from their new comeback album “Map Of The Soul: Persona”, racked over 78 million views within the first 24 hours of hitting YouTube. K-pop bands are clearly bringing more eyeballs to YouTube than most other videos these days. It's not T-Series or PewDiePie, but the hype's around K-pop now. via GIPHY BTS fans, who're collectively known as the ARMY, welcomed the new album and the music video with open arms and helped the boy-band pull off this epic feat. In case you're wondering, BTS broke the previous record set by none other than their K-pop rival Blackpink. Blackpink's “Kill This Love” title had the record under its name with 56.7 million views in 24 hours. Blackpink's track broke the record of Ariana Grande's “Thank U, Next” song which had 55.4 million views in its first 24 hours. However, the BTS ARMY really came through and managed to break their record by a huge margin. The “Boy With Luv” is the title track of BTS' new album and it parallels their 2014 song “Boy In Luv”. It's about love and finding joy in the smallest things in life. The song features Halsey, who apparently flew to South Korea to work on the video with the boys. The video, in case you're wondering, has over 124 million views and over 2.5 million comments as of today.
  11. Remember the good old days when you used to make excuses just to avoid exams? Yes, they never used to work for the most part, but do you know what kids are ready to do these days to skip an exam? Take down the entire freaking wi-fi network. That's right, two 14-year-old high school students of Secuacus High School in New Jersey, USA, decided to go all in and bring down the entire Wi-Fi network of their school so students could not access the online curriculum. If only they had put so much effort into studying for the exam! © Unsplash After talking to other students at the school, the authorities found out that the duo was using a program or app to attack the school's network and cause it to crash or become too congested to be used by the others. NJ.com's report says, “Students interviewed Monday afternoon believe the boys used a Wi-Fi interrupter program, or an app, to send so much traffic to the routers that the system would crash, which ultimately caused connection failures when students tried to log on, do class work or take exams on their computers.” It has also been brought to notice that the duo was taking requests from friends to bring down the Wi-Fi. However, it is not entirely clear if they did it as a favor or they did it with intentions of making money. The Secaucus Police Department said both students were charged with computer criminal activity and conspiracy to commit computer criminal activity.
  12. Remember the time when the most bizarre thing Elon Musk had ever done was send a freaking car to space? Yes, that is still so cool and memorable but it feels like everything Elon has done since then has been an attempt to outdo himself. Wait, maybe I am on to something, a new conspiracy theory. It seems like the only solution for his outright bizarre and unexpected behaviour, especially on Twitter these past few months. He's been busy smoking pot live on a podcast, becoming a meme because of that, asking people to send him their 'dankest' meme, fanboying over Ranveer Singh and 'Bajirao Mastani', and now he's apparently a SoundCloud rapper. The term SoundCloud rapper is basically a meme now and since Elon is slowly turning his entire existence into a meme, this seemed like the next logical step for him. On 30th March, he dropped his hot new single 'RIP Harambe' and tweeted the SoundCloud link to his millions of followers. Isn't it a little too late to pay your respects to Harambe the gorilla who was shot and killed by a zoo worker when a three-year-old boy wandered into his enclosure? Better late than never, I guess. Emo G Recordshttps://t.co/zsuB2NDl48 pic.twitter.com/anVkKeFMGr — Jung Musk (@elonmusk) March 30, 2019 If the reference to one of the biggest memes in the recent internet history wasn't enough, he also called his record label Emo G Records. The song is actually as weird - and autotuned - as you would've imagined. But, soon after dropping the song, he had a crushing realization - his record label, Emo G Records, failed because of some other emoji. I'm disappointed that my record label failed — Jung Musk (@elonmusk) March 30, 2019 Who would've thought? Duck emoji defeats Emo G Records. Crushing victory. — Jung Musk (@elonmusk) March 30, 2019 Btw, here's some context. Just look at the number of retweets and likes and compare to the song link. 𦠗 Jung Musk (@elonmusk) March 30, 2019 I feel like he's more proud of this than anything he's ever done for Tesla and SpaceX.

  13. Fast charging has grown to become one of the most popular smartphone features lately. OnePlus started off the whole fast-charging fad with its 'Dash Charge' (now called Warp Charge) technology. And now, Huawei has 40W SuperCharge and Oppo has 50W SuperVOOC. Now, it looks like Xiaomi is also looking to enter the race with an incredible 100W fast charging technology. Yesterday, the company gave us our first glimpse of its new charging tech dubbed “Super Charge Turbo”. There's still a lot that we don't know about this new charging tech, but Xiaomi's co-founder and President Lin Bin has shared a video of its new technology in action. And guess what? It's looks absolutely insane! Just check this out - As you can see in the video, Xiaomi's new technology can charge a 4,000 mAh battery from 0-percent to 50-percent in just 7 minutes. If you think that's insane, then wait till you hear that leaving the phone on charge for an extra 10 minutes can bring the charge up to 100-percent. So essentially, you can fully charge a smartphone with 4,000 mAh battery in just 17-minutes. In comparison, Oppo's 50W SuperVOOC charging technology is capable of charging a smaller 3,700 mAh battery only up to 65-percent in 17 minutes. Of course, it's still miles ahead of a lot of smartphones on the market, but Xiaomi's new tech is on an other level. © YouTube Well, that's all for now. A certain Xiaomi smartphone that's launching as early as tomorrow is said to support this incredibly fast charging tech, so we hope to learn more about it very soon.
  14. This year we've seen three midrange phones sport a 48-megapixel rear camera in India -- Vivo V15 Pro, OPPO F11 Pro, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro. The on-paper number war has been going for years and we've seen phone makers play around with internal storage as well as the RAM. © MensXP With the current 48-megapixel offering, brands have tried to lure users by numbers. They take this a step further by merging four pixels into one for low-light shots, and in turn deliver sharper pictures with better details. Every brand wants to establish itself as a smartphone photography expert, but, what's the limit in this number game? © PC World Even before we can think of a number, Qualcomm has revised specifications of its processors. XDA Developers was the first one to discover this, and the updated spec sheet includes better single and dual camera capabilities, advanced slo-mo recording, and a new feature called Hybrid Autofocus. But, what stands out the most is the support of sensors up to 192-megapixel. The list of chipsets to now support 192-megapixel picture captures are Snapdragon 670, Snapdragon 675, Snapdragon 710, Snapdragon 845 and Snapdragon 855. Before you get all amped up, please note that this is just a theoretical value. Don't expect a 192-megapixel phone soon since there are a host of challenges to overcome. © XDA Developers / Snapdragon 855 Updated Sheet Firstly, you'd have to get your hands on a 192-megapixel lens and there are none available right now. Sensors that support this resolution cannot be suddenly squeezed down to fit in an ultra-portable smartphone. Secondly, the chipsets can support a single 192-megapixel lens only, and cannot be accompanied by a secondary lens or even a front camera. To facilitate this large resolution, Qualcomm is incorporating zero shutter lag and eliminating multi-frame noise reduction. One major take away from this update is that modern chipsets or the ISP (image signal processor) have come a long way and Qualcomm is constantly improvising. © Nokia On the other end of the spectrum, Nokia is trying a new approach of adding different lenses onto a single phone. The Nokia 9 houses five rear cameras with Zeiss certified lenses, that are joined by three 12-megapixel monochrome sensors and two 12-megapixel RGB sensors.
  15. The terror attack in Pulwama, which is being called the biggest attack on India's security forces since the Uri attack in 2016, has shaken the entire country. On 14th February 2019, JeM terrorist Adil Ahmad Dar targeted a CRPF convoy comprising over 70 vehicles and 2,547 personnel, which was moving from Jammu towards Srinagar. The attack took away the life of 44 jawans and has left the country seething with anger and grief. © Twitter Numerous celebrities and Bollywood stars have come forward to lend their support and aid to the martyrs' families, in an attempt to ease their struggle to lead a life without a member of their family, in any way they can. More recently, Bollywood's own Khiladi Akshay Kumar took to Twitter to urge his followers to act immediately and support the martyrs' families. #Pulwama is something we cannot & will not forget.We're all angry & it's time to act.

To show them that we all stand with them and assure them of a future full of opportunities. Please donate through various platforms available. Whatever amount you can.

  16. Residents of many parts of India are aware of the hazardous smog we live in. Delhi and Mumbai have repeatedly crossed extremely hazardous levels of air pollution and we've done nothing to curb this. In fact, a majority of the people don't realise how unhealthy the air around us is. When was the last time you looked up and got awed by a crystal clear blue sky? © Reuters In the last decade, mobile phones have evolved from machines that can make a call to portable swiss knives that can do everything. One smartphone today is capable of replacing a camera, MP3 player, television, radio, and even a PC. We've slowly managed to add complex measuring instruments like a gyroscope, accelerometer, barometer, and proximity sensor in them as well. Now, according to a patent filing by Apple, they are considering adding a poison sensor that would be capable of detecting carbon monoxide (CO) and other harmful chemicals. Unfortunately, breathing unhealthy air has become an inevitable part of daily life for many of us. Microscopic particles too small for the eye to see are released into the air from cars, trains, power plants, factories and other sources. © Via Patently Apple CO is a poisonous gas that kills many people every year. Being colourless and odourless, it is impossible to detect by humans. If Apple can actually materialize such a sensor, it'll be a vital life-saving tool. Having a miniature gas sensor built into an iPhone or Apple Watch will be able to notify a user that they could possibly be in a dangerous environment at home, at work or in the public. The process of making this feasible includes producing robust miniature gas sensors with features like improved stability, enhanced poisoning resistance, and reduced signal interference. © Via Patently Apple In terms of a long-term solution, the sensors can become part of a larger system that monitors environmental and health hazards and will be a core part of IoT (Internet of Things). Apple Watch has already saved numerous lives thanks to improper heart rate detection, thus predicting diseases and long term health issues. Even the new "trip" function onboard the Series 4 has saved many who couldn't communicate due to an accident. Source: Patently Apple
  17. The wedding celebrations of Priyanka and Nick, or as I lovingly call them- 'Prick', have kicked off with a colourful Mehendi ceremony In Jodhpur. Going by the pictures they both posted on their social media accounts, it was a great, happy party with the bride and the groom looking so much in love. View this post on Instagram One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other's faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed. @nickjonas A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on Dec 1, 2018 at 7:31am PST Shoutout to Prick for actually sharing the pictures on the day of the function, instead of pulling a DeepVeer and making the entire country wait desperately for a glimpse of their big fat Indian shaadi. So, since all the festivities have begun, people on Twitter have also kicked off their own traditions and have started making jokes and memes of the two. I mean, if there aren't any funny tweets about something, did that thing really happen? No, of course not! So, here's what people on Twitter are saying: First, it's not exactly a Prick wedding reaction, but it's still hilarious.

  19. Samsung has been working on flexible display technology for years and has been teasing a flexible phone for quite some time. The company has now confirmed that a foldable display laptop is being developed, at the launch event of Samsung Notebook Flash. Lee Min-cheol, Samsung's vice president of marketing for PCs, said yesterday that the company is developing this new form factor for laptops. He added that the company is working with third-party manufacturers — most probably LG — to use large flexible AMOLED displays for its future laptops. © YouTube With the new foldable laptop design, Samsung could really bring some innovation to the saturated laptop industry. Samsung is collaborating with display makers to develop laptops with foldable displays, that will not just simply fold in and out, but create new value and user experience, amid the changing market trends for laptops On the other hand, Samsung is also gearing up to launch a foldable mobile phone. In August, Samsung again stressed that it's working on making foldable phones mass production ready and that it intends to be the first company to launch a foldable phone. © YouTube Even Lenovo and Microsoft are rumoured to be working on laptops with a flexible display. While this would be useful in many cases, we'll just have to wait and watch how companies are able to make full use of a folding display. "We are focused on bringing innovations favoured by consumers, rather than just becoming the world's first. In terms of the foldable phone, however, we do not want to miss the first spot," said DJ Koh, president of Samsung's mobile division. © Reuters Samsung had announced that it is aiming to have a foldable phone — the Galaxy X, unofficially, depending on the rumour — out next year, and has recently been awarded a number of patents towards that end. The Samsung prototype, which bears the internal code name "Winner," features a screen that measures about 7-inches diagonally, according to people in the supply chain. "We want to hear that Samsung Electronics made a quality product when we showcase a foldable phone on the market," Koh said, claiming the release is getting closer. Source: PocketNow
  20. Dear Dad, I know letters aren't our thing. We are not really good at expressing ourselves. But here's a thought - let's work on that like we've worked on every other thing together. You are my rock and as rocks go, you are the strongest of them all. Over the years, I've learned a lot from you (not sure if you were going for that or I just picked on them). Those life lessons have shaped me to be the man I am today. Just to give you a big SHOUTOUT and thank you for everything, here's my list of Life Lessons that I'll treasure forever. 1. Family First! Unsplash When it comes to a family, there is no you and me - it's only 'US'. And that's the biggest and most important lessons I'd like to take with me wherever I go. Dad, just want you to know that no matter where life takes me, my priority will always be my Family because our life is clearly incomplete without our everyday tussles and infinite love. 2. Equality & Respect Unsplash I'm proud to say that I'm a Feminist and it's all thanks to you. I know you don't believe in tags and nor do you understand Feminism but it's something you have done every single day. You never differentiated between me and Di. Our curfew timings were the same, the housework we shared never defined our genders and that right there was you and mom, raising a Feminist son. 3. You Showed Us That Men Can Be Emotional Unsplash You taught us that being emotional doesn't undermine our masculinity, unlike what the society perceives. You showed us how to be vulnerable around the ones we love and make this vulnerability our strength. 4. You Taught Us It's Okay To Make Mistakes Unsplash No one is perfect and even superheroes like you can make mistakes. But the way you embraced them and turned them into a learning curve showed me how to be a better person. You told me you are allowed to fail without being a failure. 5. Your Lectures Taught Me About Second Chances Pexels Every single time I goofed up I'd be stuck at the receiving end of your boring old lectures (or at least, that's what I thought of them). Today, I realize that each of those lectures, were you giving me another chance to better myself. 6. You Taught Me About Sharing The Little Moments In Life Pexels Be it a promotion, a heartbreak or another important milestone in my life - sharing it with your loved ones is just a great reminder that no matter what, there are people to whom you matter the most. And the countless bits of advice that come along my way are of great help too. Remember that time you and Di couldn't stop going on about my finances and saving after my promotion? Well, let's just say I've finally given into your advice and bought my first LIC. I have had the pleasure of learning 'how-to' everything by you, papa. Thank you.

  22. The process of tracking your weight just with the help of a weighing scale has been etched in stone. Majority of the people (I would say close to 99 percent) think that they only make progress when the weighing scale shows a decreased number. This, however, is an incorrect way of tracking your progress whether you are trying to lose weight or gain muscle mass. The scale is only ONE of the factors to measure your progress, not the ONLY or the MOST IMPORTANT one. In this article, I am going to talk about how a variety of factors influence your bodyweight and why you should not be stressing a lot about it. 1) Measurements © accufitness Look at the inches. Measure your body circumferences like the neck, chest, waist, and the hip on a weekly basis and compare them. If you have a little extra time on your hand, adding individual arms and legs can also be done. If you do not make any progress in terms of weight lost but you have lost inches, it is a clear indicator of progress. There are a lot of factors that can affect your body weight; for example, most people ignore the fact that when you start working out with weights (especially in the first 6 months of training), you build muscle along with losing fat. 2) Photos © Hitchfit Take a full picture of yourself in athletic clothing or without clothes from the front, back, and sides on a weekly basis. Make sure that you do not wear clothes that fit you differently as it can make it difficult to measure the progress. Other than that, pictures are truly worth a thousand words. You will yourself be astonished to see the changes happening over time. 3) T-shirt Test © kewlioo Take a t-shirt or go buy a smaller sized/tight-fitting one if you could. Give it a try every two weeks. See if the fit of it is changing with time. If there are gradual changes in the way the T-shirt fits you, you obviously have made progress as the scales might not have moved but the t-shirt will not lie. 4) Track Your Workouts Carry a journal to the gym and note down everything that you are doing. Over time you will see how stronger or athletic you are getting and your performance is improving. Moreover, losing weight on the scale should not be the sole purpose or the end goal because of which you start your fitness, getting fit should be and tracking how much you have progressed in the gym is one the best ways to track your fitness levels. 5) Participate In A Fitness Challenge © the freshtoast Always wanted to go trekking but never could due to a pain in your joints? Well, how about you give it a try after sticking to a fitness regime for a couple of months? You might end up surpassing your own expectations. Remember, getting fit or healthy is not just targeting a number on the weighing scale. Getting fit is a lot more than achieving a target weight; it is a lifestyle. Enjoy the journey rather than stressing about a number. Incorporating these tracking methods will give you a lot more peace of mind and make sure that you are not too hung up on only one aspect and are able to gauge your fitness progress better.

  23. Suresh Raina might be one of the best players in the Indian Cricket team, but he's a great human being whose unconditional help and good deeds will always be remembered by his fans and a certain Jeff Goodwin. Jeff Goodwin is Team India's bus driver. He has been driving for various cricket teams since the 1999 World Cup and is currently accompanying Team India on their three-month-long tour to England. The Virat Kohli led team will now compete with England in a five-match Test series starting in Birmingham from August 1. Twitter When BCCI spoke to Goodwin, he gave some really interesting insights about the Indian cricket team, and Suresh Raina in particular. He revealed how Suresh Raina helped him when his wife was ill. In a video shared by BCCI, Goodwin said “Raina, a few years ago in Leeds, when my wife had a bit of an illness and he gave me his shirt to auction off. I've never forgotten that.” BCCI While, for some people this might mean nothing or a very small gesture, but for Goodwin it must've been a life-changing experience that turned his and his wife's life for good. Goodwin further mentioned how he and his son once drove the Indian team with Sachin Tendulkar in it and even got a letter from the Indian government thanking him. Say ð to Mr. Jeff Goodwin.#TeamIndia's bus driver gives interesting insights about various cricket teams who have been his passengers all these years. P.S Jeff loves this Indian Cricket team.

They are great to get on with but they are very disciplined.” He further said this team is the best one. While talking about other teams he said, “There is a change going on in cricket. In my time, it has changed so much, Australia will be drinking all the time after the game and staying in the changing room till 2 in the morning but now, not as much.” He also revealed how because of Darren Lehmann, Goodwin got the nickname Popeye and now even has a tattoo of the same.
  24. The feat comes after the Portuguese captain scored in the 4th minute against Morocco in his side's second outing at the FIFA World cup in Russia. His was the game's only goal giving Portugal the win and also helping Ronaldo pip Ferenc Puskas as Europe's top goal scorer with 85 goals in 152 appearances. © Reuters Out of the 152 caps for Portugal, Ronaldo has scored in 58 games with his side going on to win 48 and losing just 5. In this edition of the world cup, Portugal has drawn one and won one against Spain and Morocco respectively, sitting atop the group B table at 4 points and all 4 of their goals coming courtesy of Cristiano Ronaldo himself. Talk about performing at the biggest stage of them all. © Reuters Cristiano is now only second to Iran's Ali Daei (109 goals) in the world when it comes to goals scored for their respective countries. Considering Cristiano's ability and his goal scoring form, it wouldn't be much of a surprise if he achieves this feat too. Although the bigger picture for the man himself would be winning the world cup, adding another record to his collection would certainly be another feather in his cap, who if not THE BEST, is certainly one of the greatest players to ever grace the football pitch.
  25. One of the most consistent teams in the tournament this season, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) showcased their rampant form when they became the first franchise to qualify for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 playoffs with 14 league games still left to play. Thus, there was no surprise when they topped the points table with nine wins in 14 matches in the league stage. The three consecutive losses in their last three league games did raise a few eyebrows, but SRH were happy their losing streak had no effect on their title dreams. What actually got their camp concerned and fans worried, was a narrow two-wicket loss to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Qualifier 1 - a game they could've won but eventually lost because they couldn't hold their nerve. As Chennai reached the IPL final for a record seventh time, Hyderabad, for probably the first time this season, looked vulnerable. Even though their top-two finish in the standings had assured them another shot at securing their berth for the summit clash, knowing a loss against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Qualifier 2 would bring a sad end to what has been a brilliant campaign so far, would've been lingering in their minds. Suddenly, their losing streak (extending to 4 games after their loss in Qualifier 1) that SRH fans didn't really care about earlier, now made them look weak against Kolkata's four-game winning run in the final stages of the IPL. BCCI It's needless to say that if Hyderabad wanted to have another crack at Chennai and IPL glory, they would need someone to do certain special things in order to secure a win against Kolkata in the second Qualifier. While SRH eventually saw someone special pulling off something extra special in the tournament's virtual semi-final, it was neither their pragmatic captain Kane Williamson, nor hard-hitting opener Shikhar Dhawan. Rashid Khan is turning out to be the Most Valuable Player in T20 format....across the world. Few will come close.... #IPL #KKRvSRH — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) May 25, 2018 The man who single-handedly propelled Hyderabad to only their second IPL final was Rashid 'ALL-ROUNDER' Khan. The 19-year-old Afghan cricketer sizzled in all facets of the game. He hammered 10-ball 34* with the willow, registered impressive figures of 3-19 with the ball and also made a huge impact in the field by taking two catches and collaborating to effect a run-out. After a 56-run opening stand between Shikhar Dhawan (34) and Wriddhiman Saha (35), Hyderabad were dealt with a double blow in the eighth over when Kuldeep Yadav dismissed the former and then sent SRH captain Kane Williamson (3) back in the hut. Three overs later, Saha fell prey to Piyush Chawla as Kolkata tightened the noose on Hyderabad. BCCI With just 113/3 in 15 overs, SRH needed some sort of acceleration but Shakib Al Hasan (28) got run-out and Deepak Hooda (19) was undone by Narine in the consecutive overs. The onus was now on the hard-hitting duo of Yusuf Pathan (3) and Carlos Brathwaite (8), but to no avail. While Brathwaite was run-out in the 18th over, Pathan was dismissed by Shivam Mavi in the 19th. Given the fact that their premier batsmen were all dismissed with just 11 deliveries left in the innings, the Hyderabad fans weren't wrong in wondering if their side could potentially post a competitive total from that stage. While many must've thought otherwise, young Rashid had other plans. The right-hander had already opened his account with a boundary and despite Pathan's dismissal on the first delivery, he clobbered Shivam Mavi for two big sixes in the 19th over. The final over was arguably the one that changed the scenario for SRH. After Bhuvneshwar Kumar scored a boundary and a single on the first two balls, Rashid smashed a four and six before taking a couple and then finishing with a six again. BCCI The last over yielded 24 runs for Hyderabad as Rashid remained unbeaten on 34 runs that came off in just 10 deliveries. The Afghanistan star smashed two fours and four sixes while scoring at a strike rate of 340. Despite being on the backfoot for better part of their innings, Hyderabad - on the back of Rashid's batting prowess - managed to comeback in the contest after posting a competitive total of 174 runs. For a cricketer who has established himself as one of the highly sought after spinners in the cricket world, Rashid's knock didn't just surprise the SRH fans, but it also shocked Kolkata. And, after a cracker of an innings, a high-on-confidence Rashid went on to emulate his success in the field. BCCI Introduced into the attack in the sixth over with KKR going strong at 67/1, Rashid bowled a tight line and varied his length to ensure he conceded just three runs in his first over. Eight deliveries later, Rashid made an impact. But it wasn't his bowling, Rashid had combined with Wriddhiman Saha to effect the run-out of Nitish Rana (22). Rashid claimed his first wicket of the night in his second over when he rattled the stumps of Robin Uthappa (2) who was looking to deploy the reverse sweep against Hyderabad's best bowler. His third over saw him claim another scalp, only this time the victim turning out to be dangerous Chris Lynn (48) who was threatening to take the game away from SRH. BCCI If Lynn's dismissal derailed Kolkata's run-chase, Andre Russell's dismissal, orchestrated by Rashid in his final over, virtually pushed the hosts out of the game. Looking to cut hard, Russell was foxed by Rashid's deceiving googly before sending the ball straight into the hands of Dhawan who rarely drops those. Making the game his own, Rashid's blistering batting display was followed by his breath-taking bowling. He finished his spell of four overs with three scalps to his name that came at an expense of just 19 runs. But, the Hyderabad spinner wasn't done yet. As it turned out, Rashid continued to contribute towards his team's win by taking two catches in the final over of Kolkata's innings. A 10-ball 34, figures of 3-19, a crucial run-out and two catches under pressure; not many can recall such an impressive all-round performance in the history of IPL. It's undoubtedly one of those dream outings that will not only be hard to forget, but also hard to match.
