  1. Global coronavirus infections stand at 13 million with more than half a million deaths
  2. Samsung is also looking to remove chargers in boxes of some of its smartphones from 2021, according to a report by ETNews. The company is looking to not supply the charger as many of their customers already have chargers, reduce costs and also help the environment, according to the report. © YouTube/Technical Ejaz Not including a charger in the box of a phone is already being considered by Apple for future iPhones and it seems like Samsung will also follow suit. However, Apple may remove the charger from their phones starting this year with the iPhone 12 launch, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Apple will be phasing out the 18W and 5W chargers that come with iPhones depending on the model. In Samsungâs case, most of their phones support 18WPD and PPS charging which means you can use any third-party âPower Deliveryâ charger with the phones. Samsung like Apple will also sell chargers separately which customers can buy and only include a USB cable in the box along with the phone. USB C has come a long way as more devices are now supporting the port and becoming the industry standard. From laptops, phones, power banks to even the Nintendo Switch; it seems like USB-C is here to stay and will become the norm for most devices this year. Samsungâs move to remove the charger from the box not only lets them cut costs; but also help conserve the environment as there will be less electronic waste. © Amazon Samsung has not officially confirmed the news; however, it looks like this move will cut costs for smartphones that have already been facing skyrocketing prices in the past few years. It could also serve as yet another business for Samsung where the South Korean giant can upstart accessories as a viable business for future smartphones. What do you think of Samsung removing the charger in the box for some of their smartphones? Do you think it will help Samsung cut costs and help the environment? Let us in know the comments section whether this is a good move by both Samsung and Apple. Source: ETNews View the full article
  3. We've seen a ton of reports about how Apple is planning to not include earbuds in-box with the next iPhone. Well, if you found that annoying then you'll absolutely hate the latest iPhone 12 reports. According to Kuo, a popular analyst for all things Apple, it looks like Apple will not be including even the power adapter inside the box. This means that folks who will be buying the iPhone 12 may have to purchase the adapter separately. Well, that's something new, isn't it? © Reuters Apparently, Apple wants to keep selling the iPhone 12 at a similar price to the iPhone 11. And one way to do it is by removing the cost involved with the in-box accessories. That's one way to sell a cheaper 5G iPhone, right? And since Apple is expecting to ditch the accessories, it looks like the box packaging for the iPhone 12 will also be considerably smaller. So, it's technically a feature. No? Okay. At this point, it's not entirely clear if the box will come with lighting cable or not. We think it'll still be included because Apple's other products like the Apple Watch and the AirPods don't ship with an adapter either, but they do come with the cable. So, maybe, Apple is just trying to keep things uniform. © Reuters As for the charger, it looks like Apple will only be selling a 20W adapter this time, which means it'll be more expensive than what's available today on the Apple website. This decision is, obviously, going to spark outrage among new iPhone buyers. However, it is expected that this will help Apple to see an increase in the sales of its AirPods range in the longer run.

  4. Alright. So, we are about to get into some serious weirdness, which essentially originates from one manâs undying passion for professional wrestling - Dustin Rhodes. Son of the legendary wrestler Dusty Rhodes, Dustin saw a lot of success in the early stage of his career as he teamed up with his dad and got loud cheers from the audience in the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE). Even on his own, he quickly became a fan favourite during his run with the WCW as 'The Natural Dustin Rhodes'. He grew up adoring the kind of creative and interesting work his father did. Wrestling became a passion for the man and he was completely invested in it. Ironically, it was his affection for the business which got him fired from WCW because he bladed his head (cut himself with a blade) in order to make the fight look more realistic. He did this, despite the companyâs warning, and it ended up costing him his job. Dustin then reached out to Vince McMahon for a fresh contract with WWF but was also worried about not getting enough attention from the audience on his own, simply because of having a Hall of Famer of the show as his father. He wanted to make a name for himself and asked McMahon for advice. The notorious genius that McMahon is, he asked Dustin to cover his entire head in gold paint and wear a body-hugging golden suit and come out as âGOLDUSTâ. An excited Dustin was all-in for the idea and despite McMahon repeatedly saying that the character was going to be androgynous, he agreed to play the part (Dustin later confirmed that he didnât know what the word âandrogynousâ meant and had to look it up in a dictionary). When his gimmick first appeared on a show back in 1995, nobody knew how to react to it but people sure as hell werenât going to forget him anytime soon. McMahonâs idea at the time was to make Dustin appear to be of indeterminate *** and âconfuse his opponents, gaining a psychological advantageâ according to ProWrestling Stories . As you could have guessed, the character caused a lot of controversies wherever the WWF travelled. Quite a few riots also took place in certain cities and McMahon was called out for spreading homophobia. Vince created this notion that Goldust wasnât gay but was playing on the homophobic fears of others. However, the notion didnât sit well with the people and Dustin was asked to tone down the âsexual actsâ as the character. The gimmick quickly lost all the gossip which used to surround it and the wrestler had to come up with an idea to make it interesting again or he might have to give it up altogether. Vince Russo, who used to write scripts for the show and for Goldust, writes in his autobiography: âMoments before we were about to pronounce the character dead, I got a call from Dustin. "give me one million dollars for breast implants" - goldust pic.twitter.com/wFFLVPz5OA â :) (@yourasshurtdone) May 6, 2019ââVince, Iâve got an idea,â he said. âTell Vince if he pays me one million dollars, I will get implants. ââWhat?â I said. âA penal implant?â ââNoâ answered Dustin. âBreasts.â âLet me break that down for you. Dustin Rhodes was considering getting breast implants for the wrestling business. Mind you, Iâm sure Dustin was reacting out of panic. Iâm sure if heâd really thought this through â a man walking around with womenâs breasts and all â he would have come to his sensesâ¦I think. And yes, McMahon did contemplate it. But thatâs what the business does to you. It makes sane men go nuts.â Former WWE commentator Jim Ross writes in his book titled JRâs Cookbook: True Ringside Tale, BBQ, and Down-Home Recipes: â[Dustinâs] vision was that it would be so weird and bizarre that our fans and new fans, for that matter, would pay good money to watch him wrestle. He suggested that he would be huge on the talk show circuit, and people all over the world would be clamouring to see the âBizarre Oneâ in person (especially in prison, and perhaps Amsterdam)!â According to JR, when Rhodes went to McMahon to pitch the idea of getting breast implants just to revive his character, he was absolutely stunned. To McMahonâs credit, he managed the situation in the best possible way. He commended Dustin for coming up with creative ideas for the show but that the company wasnât doing to go down that road. Now, over a decade and a half later, Dustin because of his love for the business, his in-ring capabilities and his performance with the microphone is considered to be one of the most well-respected professionals. But make no mistake, even at 51 years of age, he is still considered 'The Bizarre One'. View the full article
  5. It has been long rumoured that Apple has been working on its own custom chips for its laptops, and the Cupertino giant is about to announce its shift very soon. According to a report by Bloomberg, Mac computers will be housing Appleâs custom processors instead of chips from Intel. The report goes on to say Apple will be announcing the new move at its annual developer conference later this month. © daniel-korpai-unsplash The new chipsets are rumoured to be based on the same technology used in iPhones and iPads that are already industry-leading for its performance and power capabilities. Having said that, macOS have completely different requirements than iPhones and it would be interesting to see how Apple plans to integrate the new chips. Apple will be licensing the technology from Arm Limited and will have a different architecture as Intel chips. Developers will need to optimise their apps for future macOS products if this rumour turns out to be true. It will be the first time in 36 years Apple will be using their own chipsets for their laptops and computers. © radek-grzybowski--unsplash The shift to custom processors comes after Apple engineers got worried about sticking to Intelâs roadmap which would delay or derail Appleâs future plans. Bloomberg reports that Apple has been testing Arm-based Macs internally and have already seen sizeable improvements over MacBooks using Intel chipsets. Apple is aiming for more power-efficient chipsets that will enable the laptops to be even thinner and lighter. The report adds that Apple has been working on three different versions of its own processors. The processor is said to have its own graphics processing unit and a Neural Engine for machine learning and other types of AI learning. Apple has been working on chipsets for laptops for years and we may finally see their results at the annual WWDC conference scheduled for later this month. Apple is expected to announce new versions of iOS, TVOS, iPadOS, macOS and other improvements for the following year. Source: Bloomberg View the full article
  6. The coronavirus outbreak and lockdown has made us witness a number of incidents we may not have thought possible in the pre-COVID world. From wild beasts roaming the city streets to people thrashing doctors and nurses for trying to keep them safe, and the poor stepping up to fund coronavirus relief work, we have seen the best and worst of it all. © Pexels (Representative Image) However, it seems thereâs a lot more for us to see yet, just like the peculiar case of this Tamil Nadu man named Prashant. The 30-year-old man is creating quite a buzz online for being a âconsiderateâ thief who returned a stolen bike to its owner via courier. So here is the complete story. On 18th May, Prashant, who works at a bakery in Coimbatore, stole Suresh Kumarâs bike parked nearby his lathe workshop in Kannampalayam Pirivu area in Coimbatore. Prashantâs reason for stealing the bike was simple; he wished to go back to his hometown in the nearby district of Tiruvarur and needed a ride. Suresh Kumarâs parked bike served the purpose. © Pexels When Kumar found out that his bike was missing, he went to the police station to file an FIR. However, he was told that investigation of the matter will only be taken up after the lockdown is revoked. In the meantime, Kumar made use of CCTV footage from around the area to trace the identity of Prashant. Realising the owner is trying to track him and fearing legal action against himself, Prashant decided to send the bike back via courier service, using the details he found on the bikeâs Registration Certificate. © Pexels Thatâs how Kumar ended up getting a call from the courier office yesterday that his bike was ready to be delivered. Given that his bike was returned to him in good condition, Suresh told the media that he will not take any legal action against Prashant. Talk about being a thief with a conscience, right?

  7. Apple's new iPhone SE has received rave reviews thanks to its affordable price tag for the kind of hardware it offers. We haven't had the chance to use the phone yet due to the on-going Coronavirus lockdown in the country, but we think it's perfect for most Indians. The company's CEO Tim Cook recently commented about the iPhone SE and said that they're receiving positive reviews from both reviewers and customers. In response to a question about how well the new iPhone SE might sell in specific regions, Tim said that it could do well in regions with lower median incomes. © YouTube/ iJustine Tim Cook even said that the company is expecting to attract a "fair number" of Android switchers with the new iPhone SE. He believes that'd be the case because of how powerful the new iPhone SE really is. He explained that it packs the âengineâ of the iPhone 11 inside a smaller and more affordable form factor. Here's what he said - âIt plays in every geo, but I would expect to see it doing even better where the median incomes are less. Iâd expect some fair number of people switching over to iOS. Itâs an unbelievable offer. Itâs the engine of our top phones, in a very affordable package, and itâs faster than the fastest Android phones. Itâs an exceptional value.â © YouTube/ iJustine We've already seen why the new iPhone SE is actually a lot more powerful than even the most powerful Android flagship phones out there. That, on top of the price tag, even here in India, makes the new iPhone SE an incredible value for money purchase. View the full article

  9. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Tuesday, made an official announcement on the extension of nationwide lockdown till May 3. People largely were okay with the extension, owing to the increase in the number of coronavirus cases in the country. However, most of them were disappointed with one thing - no new âtaskâ this time. All of the Prime Ministerâs previous announcements had been accompanied by certain âtasksâ for citizens such as clapping or banging plates from balconies to commemorate the contributions of frontline health workers at 8 pm on âJanta curfewâ, which was on March 22 or lighting candles for 9 minutes at 9 pm on April 5 to fight the coronavirus darkness. People across the county actively took part in both the events. This time, however, PM Modiâs speech was more sombre and Indians largely were disappointed with no announcement of new tasks. Most of them took to Twitter to lament the missing "task" and shared hilarious memes. Here, take a look: When the speech ends but modiji didn't give any other task to do. pic.twitter.com/0HzJ5wH5Q5 â âªï¸Sagarwaâªï¸ (@chocolateboey07) April 14, 2020Modiji: *doesnât give any new task* Indians: pic.twitter.com/6ygCMd6Khs â Akash (@vaderakash) April 14, 2020Modiji came, #lockdown2 speech given, but no task given Me and boys : pic.twitter.com/KMUGE1xH1d â Chirag Jain (@jainchirag922) April 14, 2020When Modiji concluded the speech without alloting any task. pic.twitter.com/7BDGJOiNY1 â Kishan Jhunjhunwala (@Jhunjhunastic) April 14, 2020When you are waiting for a new task but Modiji finishes speech without one pic.twitter.com/ODInGj8dAB â Ankesh Khunteta (@ankesh_k_13) April 14, 2020*Modiji finished his speech without giving any task to his fellow countrymen. *Meanwhile memers:- pic.twitter.com/leoWJMrBqq â Divyanshu Rathore (@TheFrozenWords) April 14, 2020Meanwhile, PM Modi, in his speech, made seven requests to people about behavioural guidelines that they should follow during the lockdown period, such as helping out poor people, wearing homemade face masks, taking care of elders at home and not terminating employees among others. The government will issue detailed guidelines on the lockdown on Wednesday. View the full article
  10. As if we havenât witnessed enough of the ânever-seen-beforeâ amid these times of a pandemic outbreak, some supremely talented guys donât cease to amaze us even now. As per reports, a Bengaluru-based, smart-ass of a guy thought he would get away with not only dating but marrying two women and living happily ever-after with both of them. Of course, he had no intention of coming clear to either of his âwivesâ. Until fate decided to screw his perfect little divine plan and his first wife found out about his extra-marital affair. © Unsplash Bas phir kya, the 45-year old man arranged for a tripartite agreement which decreed that he to share his time equally with both of them, and all was going well until the lockdown was announced. With the lockdown imposed, Mr Husband was stuck at his second wifeâs place with no way of making it to the otherâs house in time to honour the agreement. Thatâs when the first wife approached the womenâs helpline demanding that her husband be brought back to her so that he can look after the needs of his legal family in quarantine. And thatâs how this manâs perfect plan was laid bare for people to see. © Unsplash Double-timing isnât really a new concept for people who make up the young, dating crowd today. While many are guilty of having given it a try at some point, it is no surprise that shit does go down almost every single time. And it is never a happy picture when it does. Now, in a normal situation, you would expect the first wife to confront her husband and expose his âplaying houseâ drama at the very least. And if the situation demands it, a legal battle would ensue and the âpati-devâ could be legally screwed over while the second wife is publicly named and shamed for being the cruel wench, tempting the husband and being a house-breaker. © Unsplash But that wasnât to be the case here given the charms of Mr Husband who is being called Naveen. Not only did he somehow manage to convince his first wife to not press legal charges, but he also convinced both of his wives to get into a tripartite agreement. But you see, Karma being the bitch that she is, doesnât spare even those who believe they are too smart for their own good. Only time will tell whatâs in store for these three. View the full article
  11. Bollywood is known for dishing out many memorable scenes, dialogues and characters that stick around years after the filmâs release. While the good is difficult to let go of, the bad isnât any easier to get over either. Over the years, most movie-lovers come to fall for on-screen characters, but what happens when one of those characters is killed off, much to our dismay? We know, the shock is paramount, the anger is worse and the feeling of betrayal is next level. Thatâs why we decided to vent our accumulated angst and curate a list of 10 such on-screen deaths in Bollywood movies that we havenât been able to get over even today: 1. Shaalu Gupta - Masaan © Phantom Films It really felt unjust to watch this smiling face fade into nothingness after the tragic road accident hits her. This death didnât only shatter Deepak and break apart a love story that deserved to live long and old, but also hit us hard. 2. Rahul Jaykar - Aashiqui 2 © T-Series Most of us failed to understand why Rahul couldnât fight harder and defeat his addiction for his own good, and for a real chance at the love he truly deserved. His end was definitely heartbreaking to watch. 3. Amarendra Baahubali - Baahubali © Arka Media Works âKattappa ne Baahubali ko kyun maara?â became a recurring question. But no one can deny that it was utterly heart-breaking witnessing the kind and winsome prince happily put his life on the line and still perform his duty as a true son until his dying breath. *Sobs in the corner* 4. Dr Preet Sahni - Udta Punjab © Balaji Motion Pictures Okay, very honestly, we hadnât seen this coming. Having done a good job at getting to the root of Punjabâs drug problem with Sartaj, and building a bond that was filled with hope, we were honestly expecting a better tomorrow for the couple. But of course, the director felt otherwise. 5. Mahabir - Highway © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Stockholm Syndrome or not, you have to admit there was some zing to Veera and Mahabirâs relationship from the very beginning. And just when it appeared both of them had finally escaped their troubled past and found a safe haven, boom! Imtiaz decides to kill the guy. 6. Neerja - Neerja © Fox Star Studios Based on the real-life story of air-hostess Neerja Bhanotâs tragic death during a terrorist flight hijacking in Lahore, Neerjaâs display of bravery and selfless service won hearts. Her sacrifice saved so many lives at the cost of her own, and that left an indelible mark on the audienceâs hearts. 7. Aarav - Humari Adhuri Kahani © Vishesh Films Okay, this wasnât meant to hurt so bad, but it did. Aaravâs character in the film was so beautifully crafted that you couldnât help but grow a soft spot for the guy. But it is his idea of selfless love that really makes you fond of him, until he is wrongfully taken away from everyone. Mohit Suri, weâre looking at you RN. 8. Kalpana - Ghajini © Geetha Arts It is never easy to imagine such a terrible ending for characters who bring much life into the frames. Kalpana was one such chirpy, loud-mouth character who didnât deserve to die the way she did. We really felt Sanjayâs pain when he discovered her hammered body. 9. Ram-Leela - Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela © Bhansali Productions Not quite sure why this one had the kind of impact that it did, but it did sadden us to see yet another love story cut short in the name of caste and community, that is so quick to issue death warrants to those who date to follow their hearts, just like Ram and Leela. 10. Madhu and Aditya - Dhadak © Dharma Productions Not the best closing scenes, Madhu and Adityaâs death in Dhadak is more than tragic, to say the least. As for our sadness level, looking at their bloodied bodies was bad enough to draw a 10/10 on the sad-o-meter. View the full article
  12. Ever wondered what would happen if you got stuck on an island with your partner? Sounds romantic, right? Well, looks like itâs not all roses when it actually happens. Recently, a couple has found themselves trapped in an eternal honeymoon in Maldives after the airports in their country shut down due to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus. Initially, newlyweds Olivia, 27, and Raul De Freitas, 28, were only supposed to spend six days in paradise at the Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives before heading back to their country South Africa. The newly-wed couple arrived in Maldives on March 22 and were supposed to head back home the following weekend. However, due to the mounting travel restrictions in multiple countries, the couple had made sure to check with their travel agent before embarking on their journey, according to The New York Times. At that point, no restrictions for their itinerary had been announced and their agent told them that all South African citizens would be allowed back home. Although, that wasn't the case and the couple is now stuck in Maldives. âItâs incredible that we get this extra time,â Olivia told the Times, adding that they are getting a generous discount off the usual $750 per night resort, but each day is cutting into their savings. âEveryone says they want to be stuck on a tropical island, until youâre actually stuck,' Olivia said. 'It only sounds good because you know you can leave.â The couple explained that they were in the fourth day of their honeymoon when they received a notice that South Africa's airports would all be closed by midnight the following day. They told the Times that flights back to South Africa are five hours to Doha, Qatar, where they would be subject to a three-hour layover, and then nine hours to Johannesburg. Hence, due to those complexities of leaving paradise, they would've never made it back to South Africa ahead of the country's airport closures. In addition, they said they considered other options like taking an hour-and-a-half speedboat ride to the main island's airport. However, the Maldives had also announced their own lockdown around the same time, banning foreign travelers. The lockdown in South Africa will last until at least April 16. View the full article
  13. While for most people, dandruff may be somewhat seasonal, there are a few who shed a lot throughout the year. Dandruff basically is the flaked skin of the scalp. So any minor skin condition around the scalp, or a dry or oily scalp, and youâll have constant dandruff, no matter what the season. © iStock Trust us when we say this, it can get pretty embarrassing at times, as people assume that you are just dirty and do not shampoo your hair. Now, when youâre under quarantine, it may not seem to be a problem if you have âdirty hair.â However, leaving it untreated during this whole time will only aggravate the situation. © iStock As wonderful as they seem to be, shampoos donât always work. Yes, they may get you a clean mane for some time, probably a day or two. You need proper, medicated shampoos, and that for a prolonged time if you really want to see the results. However, god luck on getting your hands on them, given the current lockdown. Furthermore, if you were getting your hair treated at salons for dandruff, even that is out of the window for now. © iStock Well, fret not. Here are some quick home remedies that you can try out during the length of the quarantine that should significantly reduce your dandruff shedding problem and help you get that awesome mane that you have been looking for. Lemon Segments Massages © iStock You donât even need fresh lemons actually, for this. Just massage some partially squeezed, but clean lemon segments on your scalp for a couple of mins every day and wash it off with normal water.

  18. Hyperpigmentation refers to skin discoloration. It is visible in the form of dark spots and patches. The causes can vary from exposure to the sun, an eczema flare-up, or a particularly bad breakout. The roots of every type of hyperpigmentation all start with melanin, the pigment in our skin. Essentially, hyperpigmentation is caused by the overproduction of melanin that becomes visible on the skin and especially the face. And even the aftermath of breakouts can cause hyperpigmentation. However, hyperpigmentation is more common than you think, most people experience it at some point in their lives. But there are different types of hyperpigmentation out there. These include: 1. Age spotsCaused by overexposure to the harmful UV rays, it mostly affects skin areas like the face, neck, forearms, and hands that are most prone to exposure. 2. Post-inflammatory This is the term for the skin discoloration that is caused by acne, eczema, a rash, or a cut. 3. MelasmaThey manifest as patches of discoloration usually on the cheeks, the bridge of the nose, the forehead, the chin, and above the upper lip. 4. FrecklesThey're linked to genetics, but may become darker and more visible with UV exposure. Here are things that you can do to avoid further damage and prevent further pigmentation: A. Avoid the sun © Getty Images Sun rays stimulate excessive melanin production, so in order to get rid of the pigmentation, you'll have to stop stepping out in the sun. More importantly, wear sunblock every day. Use an SPF of 30 or more, reapplying every two hours if you're out for extended periods of time. B. Don't pick or scratch at your skin © Getty Images If you get any pimples, it's important not to pick at them. This is because picking at them can lead to a permanent dark mark or scar. In fact, even scratching mosquito bitesâcan lead to the darkening of the skin. C. Choose products with the right ingredients © Getty Images Look for a product that combines a lightening agent such as kojic acid, licorice extract, or mushroom extract, and a retinol formula or an exfoliating agent such as glycolic and lactic acids. Additionally, you'll also want to use ingredients that can help treat the damaged epidermal layer. If this sounds too confusing, consulting a dermatologist is ideal. The idea is to get a chemical exfoliator, a hydrating cream that keeps the skin intact and retinol that heals the skin to nix any dark spots. View the full article

  20. Think you may be infected with the novel coronavirus? Here is what you need to do
  21. Coronavirus has finally been given the status of a pandemic by the WHO (World Health Organisation), it is also officially an SOS alert on Google that can easily scare you with a single search result. However, the extremely communicable disease has been affecting us in very real ways in the past few weeks. With more corporate organisations declaring work from homes, and all major events like fashion weeks, Coachella cancelled, it's only going to get worse from here. The outbreak in the US, especially, has gotten worse to the extent that they're even cancelling NBA season, and have suspended all travel from Europe but more importantly, health organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the US have released a comprehensive guideline for the beards that will be and won't be safe to grow in the coming weeks. Take a look at the chart here: The map points out which style of beard is more prone to catching the virus and which is relatively safer. This map eerily reminds us of the mandated hairstyles for the general population in North Korea. The people in North Korea can only choose among a handful of hairstyles mandated by the government, anything other than these is considered illegal. Here's one of the leaked images of the what the chart looks like: © Reuters However, this is definitely not similar in terms of the motives of this organisation. The CDC is constantly striving to come up with the health precautions to contain the novel Covid-19 as much as possible. Anyway, back to the diagram. It suggests that if you're wearing a surgical mask, your beard shouldn't cross the seal with your face. Moustaches and sideburns are fine if they stay on one side of the mask or another, but any hair that crosses the seal, even stubble, is not advisable. This means all beards are technically not safe. They've also given funny names to certain beards, in case you haven't noticed. 1. The 'Toothbrush Beard' is a safe beard. © Centers FOR Disease Control AND Prevention 2.
