  1. The (virtual) world of grumpiness lost a bit of its charm today with the passing away of the internet's most catty feline 'Grumpy Cat'. Known to be the face of grumpiness for the online community of 'Republic of Grumpyland', the internet pet sensation became the face of countless (and most apt) memes during her lifetime. © Twitter Grumpy Cat's family took to Twitter hours ago to share the news of her passing away, and tributes have been pouring in in large numbers from the netizens, who had found the perfect stand-in and global representative to express their deepest emotions publicly. Some days are grumpier than others... pic.twitter.com/ws209VWl97 — Grumpy Cat (@RealGrumpyCat) May 17, 2019 Earlier this month, Grumpy contacted a urinary tract infection which proved to be fatal for the feline. “She passed away peacefully at home in the arms of her mommy, Tabatha,” the family wrote in the tweet. This past week really has sucked. Rest in peace you amazing feline, you will be missed. — Ross O'Donovan (@RubberNinja) May 17, 2019 Those who have met her, consider themselves lucky. RIP grumpy cat. I was lucky to meet you in London. pic.twitter.com/T3wZCM1UZS — Mattie (@MattieStar26) May 17, 2019 People remember her for all the happiness they added to their lives. You brought so much joy into so many lives... rest in peace Grumpy Cat. — That's Ms. Hath No Fury to you, thanks (@hburgur) May 17, 2019 Originally named Tardar Sauce by her family, Grumpy Cat helped millions break into a smile courtesy her resting grouchy-face and the hilarious texts that always seemed more funny and related when kept next to her face. Here are a few awesome memes in memory of the late Grumpy Cat. 1. Pessimist, what's that? © Twitter 2. Got the message? © Twitter 3. My name is Social. Anti-Social. © Twitter 4. Oh, brother. © Twitter 5. We all know those people. © Twitter RIP, Grumpy.
  2. I am pretty sure the fanboy in you hits 'boht hard' when you see actors like Ranveer Singh transform dramatically for a movie. via GIPHY In literally no time, Ranveer drastically transforms from lean to shredded and your inspiration breaks the roof and hits the stars. To find out more about his transformation and methods, you check his interviews on every platform and set yourself up. via GIPHY Your Goa trip is also approaching in 12 weeks, so the decision to transform yourself in line with Ranveer's methods seems possible for you now. On top of that, you've seen your favourite actors achieving that look endless number of times. But, are you aware of the dark secrets behind those drastic transformations? Here they are: 1. It's Not Realistic For You: Most of us work in a stressful job which takes a lot of our time, efforts and mental space. Sometimes, while attempting these transformations, we forget that we have a full-time job and other life stresses to handle too. However, it's our favourite superstar's job to look good. They don't have any other major thing to take care of apart from this. They will also go to any length to achieve the transformation. Also, they might adopt any and every serious measure to achieve that look. Be it training for endless hours, survive on little food and take anabolic steroids. 2. It's Not Healthy: To transform yourself from a pot belly to a shredded core, you need to consume a caloric restricted diet. Now, the severity of caloric restriction depends on the time you need to be ready in. And for drastic transformations like those, you will need to get under a caloric restriction of at least 1000-1500 calories per day. This simply means: 1. Eating salads and chicken throughout the day. Because these are the best foods which will keep you slightly full in those minuscule calories. 2. No participation in any kind of social outings. You can't afford eating out in that caloric budget. 3. Your mental health takes a severe toll. This can invite anxiety & depression to rule your mind. 4. Your *** drive might take a hit and you might lose interest in any activity. This is your body's smart mechanism of saving energy. 3. Anabolic Steroids: Apologies for saying this, but your favourite actors might be using anabolic steroids. In all probability, these drastic transformations require steroids. We all know that help from Performance Enhancement Drugs fastens the process 10x. This sets false expectations in recreational lifters like us. In summary, drastic transformations like these are not just hard to achieve but can take a big toll on our life, health and responsibilities. Instead of comparing yourself with these actors, set realistic timelines for your bodies. This will prevent you from regretting later. © Getty Images It makes sense to get inspired by their transformations and take it as a source of motivation. However, as wise men, we should filter out information which is not practical for us. Instead, we should set realistic goals according to our lifestyle and adopt measures according to that. Even if it takes more time than their transformations, we should embrace it.

  3. Google is all set to host its annual developer conference Google I/O tomorrow and the keynote is special for many reasons to Android and Google users. The keynote will be hosted and headlined by CEO Sundar Pichai and we can expect to see new announcements of features, Android Q, hardware across all of the company's products. There is also a good chance that we get an update on other Alphabet (Google's parent company) compares such as Waymo and Nest. Here's what all we can expect from Google's event that is scheduled to take place tomorrow at 10:30 PM IST: Android Q © YouTube Every year, Google announces new features that will come as a part of the annual Android update and we are certain that the company has something in store this year as well. In the Pixel Beta Program, Google has already introduced improved location privacy controls, chat bubbles, pop-up settings menus and a few other new features. Google is expected to announce new features such as native support for screen recording, a new sharing menu and a desktop mode like Samsung's DeX. Google is also expected to add support for foldable devices natively this year just like Google added support for the notch last year. There's a good chance that a new beta will arrive right after I/O keynote concludes and a final release is expected to launch sometime in October 2019. A New Pixel Phone © Facebook There have been numerous leaks in the past that have hinted towards Google launching a cheaper Pixel smartphone. There's a good chance that Google is gearing up to launch the new Pixel smartphone that has been dubbed as Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. The smartphone is said to have similar features as Google's flagship Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL which we will know more about once Google officially unveils the device. An Update On Duplex © YouTube Last year, Google shocked the world with an AI voice that could answer spam calls for you and even make calls to restaurants and make reservations. The life-like voice basically removed the need for a user to deal with annoying calls or rudimentary tasks such as making reservations. "Duplex" was only available in select areas and there is a chance that Google may roll out this feature to new locations or even worldwide. Stadia © YouTube Google announced its new gaming service “Stadia” at the Game Developers Conference earlier this year. There will be some sort of update on the gaming service and how it would work with Google's products such as Pixel Devices, Chromebook, and Android devices. According to Google, data centres will enable Google to provide game streams up to 4K at 60 frames per second. Google is also making a custom Stadia controller that has dedicated buttons for capturing gameplay and sharing footage on YouTube directly. A small army of data centres will enable streams in up to 4K at 60 frames per second (with support for 8K and 120 frames per second on the way), and customers will have the option of purchasing a custom-designed Stadia controller with a capture button that shares in-game experiences directly to YouTube. Google Assistant Updates © BCCL Generally, Google brings new features to Google Assistant every year since its launch and we could expect some new services and features that will use machine learning and artificial intelligence. We could also expect new updated on Google Home devices or a Google Hub Max. Will you be watching Google I/O tomorrow with us? What features and new updates are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments below.
  4. Netflix has been at the forefront of streaming video content for consumers and is actively looking to make the experience even better. At first, the company rolled out 4K and HDR support for many of their originals and now, the company is investing in another experiential feature. © Unsplash Netflix has announced that the company is bringing "studio quality” sound for content on its platform that will enhance the overall experience of a viewer. The company is increasing the audio bitrate up to 640 kbps on devices that support 5.1 surround sound and up to 768 kbps for Dolby Atmos. The audio quality will be adaptive similar to how video quality adjusts according to your internet speed. There is a catch though, the high-quality audio will only be available for Premium Subscribers. © Unsplash According to Netflix, “Our high-quality sound feature is not lossless, but it is perceptually transparent. That means that while the audio is compressed, it is indistinguishable from the original source. Based on internal listening tests, listening test results provided by Dolby, and scientific studies, we determined that for Dolby Digital Plus at and above 640 kbps, the audio coding quality is perceptually transparent. Beyond that, we would be sending you files that have a higher bitrate (and take up more bandwidth) without bringing any additional value to the listening experience.” These changes were inspired by a viewing session with the Duffer Brothers, where they were left unimpressed during a screening of 'Stranger Things' Season 2. Since then, Netflix has improved the bitrate for the show to meet expectations of audiences and the Duffer Brothers.
  5. First dates are complicated beyond doubt and those of us who've been in that awkward situation, know what I mean. There are many loose ends you try and tighten with your mind going on overdrive but sometimes, even they fail to enunciate what you actually need to do. Sometimes, prominent signs to know if your first date went well are very important and they can only be delivered if you pay heed to them. © Pinterest We're always waiting for a call or a text, wondering if we've been ghosted, always thinking if she liked the place you suggested, if she liked you vibe or is she just going to move ahead and never see you again. A lot of queries end up playing Tetris inside your head and I understand it's frustrating. So, in order to make it easier for you to judge whether or not your first date went well, I am going to give you a few ways to determine the apt signs that'll let you know the same: (1) The Initial Reaction Is Important What was it like when you first met her? If you're meeting her through a dating app, then you're probably meeting her for the first time ever. So, you have to remember what look she wore on her face. Was she nervous? was she confident? was she smiling through and through or did she seem like she wasn't interested at all? This is important because this tells you whether or not there's any scope to build chemistry between the two of you. What was your reaction upon seeing her? Sometimes reactions can be similar. But we won't base it on the first time you saw each other. We will base it more on how the evening went after. But the initial reaction you get from your date has a lot to say about her actions later. © Pinterest (2) The Number Of Hours Spent Together Are Important This is an important aspect. If you're spending time with someone and if they're bored or don't like you, they will make an excuse and leave. It's very common. They may just be there for a drink to not be rude and leave right after. But if she's thoroughly enjoying your company then chances are you both will end up spending hours together and have a good time as well. This marker can at least assure you that you didn't mess up anything for her to not get back in touch with you again. © Pinterest (3) Was There Enough Laughter? Laughter is the universal sign for fun and happiness and if there was adequate laughter from her and you, it means the date went well. Obviously, she can't pretend to laugh for hours. She will give up some time! If her laughter seemed genuine and she seemed happy and talkative, take that as a positive sign! © Pinterest (4) Body Language Is Important You probably didn't pay attention much but let me tell you body language is important to study. It tells you a lot about how interested a person is in you. If she was slouching throughout, had her arms crossed and her body always distant and facing the other way while she was with you, it probably meant she was disinterested or wasn't enjoying herself. If a woman is made to feel comfortable, in time, she opens up and it's fairly evident. If she kept stroking your arm, or put her arms around you or her body was very much in tune with yours throughout, be damn sure she definitely loved your company. © Pinterest (5) The Ending Is Important How did the date eventually end? Was it absolutely abrupt where she just said bye and headed home? or did it end with a nice conversation or a kiss to seal the deal? A kiss usually seals the deal most times. It's a sure-shot sign that both people want to take this to another level altogether. It also means she loved your company for the night and there's no better way to express that than a heartfelt kiss. Think about the kiss. Was it a peck? Or a full-blown smooch? or was it just a touch-and-go? If it was a peck, maybe she was just being polite. But if it was anything other than that, you've got her attention and probably a second date too! © Pinterest Siddhant Roop Rai (mc_soopy) Naina Bhan ( @nainabee) Location : Andaz Hotel (@andazdelhi) Photographer : Anand Gogoi ( @anand.gogoi) Stylist : Devanshi Tuli (@devanshi.15) Makeup and Hair : Shrishti Anand ( @srishtianandmakeup ) Production : Prapti Elizabeth (@prapti.elizabeth) It's not rocket science really. If you are looking forward to going on your second date, these signs will help you analyse how the first one went. Most times, you have to follow up but she will leave you enough hints on asking her out again. If you're going on a first date, these signs will come in handy, in case you look forward to another one with the same person.

  6. The most anticipatory moment of the entire year is finally here and fans are going berserk witnessing a decade-worth of films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming to an end with 'Avengers: Endgame', in the theatres. The movie came to the halls on the 26th Of April and it's been running packed in theatres since! There are over 25 lakh tickets sold out on the online booking portal BookMyShow and with that, 'Avengers: Endgame' has become the fastest film to have surpassed the two-million advance ticket sales mark on BookMyShow! This is actually quite phenomenal. © Walt Disney Studios Motion pictures According to Forbes, the movie has performed extremely well and has raked in an opening day collection of $216.6 million (around INR 1403 crore) worldwide, with $47.6 million (around INR 334 crore) coming in from China. That's one box office record to beat, TBH! In India alone, some theatres have opened screenings 24x7 to actually meet the increasing demands of watching the show the day it's out. Which makes sense though. A true Marvel fan won't wait a week anyway to watch 'Avengers: Endgame' and there are quite a few of those in India. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture "With just a few hours left for 'Avengers: Endgame' to hit the screens, the frenzy around the film is unprecedented. The cinemas are doing everything possible to match fans' demand for the film, including round-the-clock screenings as also opening up advance bookings for the entire week ahead." Ashish Saksena, the COO for BookMyShow told a popular news agency. According to a trade analyst, 'Avengers: Endgame' is expected to earn over $260 million (a whopping INR 1823 crore), while some believe the film will definitely cross the $300 million-mark (INR 2104 crore). This is an insane record breaker in the history of cinema and if you haven't caught it yet, it's about time you do! The film has excellent reviews from every corner of the world! © Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture 'Avengers: Endgame' is the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and stars Robert Downey Jr. Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Brie Larson, among many others.
  7. Hunger is one of the main reasons people overeat and gain fat. While this is in the context of general eating, hunger pangs are all the more a problem when you are dieting for fat loss. Why is that? When you go on a diet, two of the main hormones related to hunger and satiety go for a toss. The hormone, being leptin, which plays a role in signalling satiety and ghrelin which signals hunger to your brain. © Getty Images When you diet, leptin goes down and ghrelin shoots up. Results? HANGER (hunger+anger)! So, here are five useful tricks that will help you manage hunger while dieting: 1. Drink More Water Studies have shown that drinking water 15 to 30 minutes before a meal reduces your food consumption considerably, especially for sweet or savoury food items which are usually high in calories. At times, we even confuse thirst with hunger. This makes us eat more when we are just thirsty and we increase our calorie intake by doing this. So, drink a glass of water 30 minutes before your meal. 2. Do Not Drink Your Calories Drinking your calories is the easiest way to finish off your daily calorie limit while not feeling full. Liquid calories, as we call them, are your worst enemies on a diet. Why? a. It is easier to drink a lot of them. b. It does not make you full, even one bit. So, if you are drinking normal sodas, juices, sugary teas or energy drinks, cut them out when dieting. 3. Eat More Protein Protein is considered the most satiating macronutrient. In studies comparing diets with different protein intakes, higher protein diets have shown higher dietary compliance and satisfaction compared to the lower protein counterparts. How much protein should you consume during a fat-loss phase? 1.8 to 2.3 grams per kilogram of body weight. 4. Increase Your Fibre Intake Fibre is another thing to consider if you are struggling with hunger pangs during a diet. Fibre is usually a high-volume, low-calorie food. Meaning, fibre-rich foods are low in calories for a relatively huge quantity. And it slows down digestion and delays gastric emptying. So, if you have the feeling of emptiness even after eating food, including some more fibrous carbohydrates by eliminating starchy carbohydrates might just do the trick. 5. Moderate Your Junk Food Consumption © Getty Images Though I am a thorough proponent of flexible dieting, I am also a huge proponent of moderation. Just because your calories play a major role in determining your weight loss or weight gain, does not mean you eat a majority of junk food while losing weight. Yes, it is possible to even eat exclusively junk and lose weight if you keep your calories under check but is it a wise thing to do? Absolutely not! The reason being that these junk food options are high-calorie low-volume food options making you eat very less food and finish off your calorie targets for the day. This hunger will ultimately make you eat more calories defeating the entire process. Majority of the times, keep your foods coming from unprocessed, nutrient-dense, whole foods and occasionally indulge in the foods you love for better adherence and ultimately results.

  9. World Wrestling Entertainment's biggest annual show of 2019, WrestleMania 35, saw some of the best matches being booked by the decision-makers. Becky Lynch won both the Women's titles, Seth Rollins defeated Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship, and Triple H got to rip out Batista's hideous nose pin with a pair of pliers. However, the one match that caught a lot of attention from devoted wrestling fans from all over the world was that between Danial Bryan and Kofi Kingston for the former's WWE Championship. Not only the fight itself was booked in a good manner but the storyline that led up to the final face-off was brilliantly scripted. A veteran star of the show, not getting the kind of recognition that he deserves for his hard work and dedication to the company through the years, finally stepping up to the heartless authorities of the show and seizing the opportunity thereby proving his true worth against all odds. Classic underdog story. And Kofi's story was elaborate too, and involved his team 'The New Day' to visit India to promote the company here while auditioning the top crop of the country to help them become WWE superstars in the coming years. Take a look at our exclusive interview with the extremely energetic trio, here. Having said that, nobody would have expected the Ghanaian-American athlete to say “apna time aayega” after he won the WWE title on WrestleMania 35 last Sunday. Unable to believe their eyes and ears, Kofi and The New Day's Indian fans took to Twitter to express their limitless happiness: #WrestleMania apna time ayga and @TrueKofi proves it. Congratulations. #WWEChampionship — Shrey Mahendra (@shrey_mahendra) April 8, 2019 @TrueKofi Congratulations new WWE champion apna time aayega — MONU PRAJAPATI (@imonutweets) April 8, 2019 @TrueKofi : Apna Time Ageya!!

  10. It's been two years since the last season of 'Game Of Thrones' premiered. April 14 is right here, and people have been calling it the beginning of the end. We can't wait to find out the fate of our beloved characters. From crazy fan theories to insane speculations, various threads on Quora and Reddit have tried to dissect the ending. But no one can confirm things. The creators of GOT have been tight-lipped about the plot surrounding season 8. However, we do know that cliffhangers from season 7 will be answered in the coming days and the long-awaited war between the white walkers and the living will finally happen. This also means we will be seeing more reunions in season 8 (Jon and Arya is one reunion that we're waiting for). Daenerys, Sansa and Arya meeting is one such face-off that is going to happen in the first episode. In a new interview with a leading publication, Emilia Clarke talks about the fact that Daenerys will meet the Stark sisters for the first time in the very first episode of the latest season. Dany, in order to rule, needs Snow and his allies to cooperate which is why she needs to get along with Sansa and Arya. © HBO "I like to think that it's like 'Meet the Parents,'" Clarke told the publication. "It's like: 'I hope they like me. This dude's wicked. It's a real good thing we got going on. He's the final piece. We're destined for greatness and world domination is a breath away.' And so I need to be like: 'Can I braid your hair, Sansa? Little Arya, come over here, let's play some cricket.' So there's that. And then, very, very quickly, it's like: 'Wait, is it just me, or do they hate me?'" You will get to witness the Stark-Targaryen face-off on 15 April, 2019.
  11. The Russo Brothers have too much power right now. I know it, you know it, and they for sure know it and they also know how to use that much power for trolling. We are all desperately waiting for the release of 'Avengers: Endgame' - just 26 days to go, yay! - and they're taking advantage of that. A few months ago, they changed their profile picture on Twitter to a meme that came out of a picture of Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman laughing at Ryan Reynolds. @Russo_Brothers UM ACTUALLY WHAT THE F*CK ARE YOU DOING pic.twitter.com/ibZBakt8PV — ðµððâ¡ | #TWOOFUS (@L0umykryptonite) December 26, 2018 Now, they have a new profile picture on Instagram and it's basically in support of one of the biggest running gag theory since 'Avengers: Infinity War'. There was one cursed post after 'Infinity War' that launched a theory that never died down - why didn't Ant-Man just go up Thanos' butt and transform back into his normal size? That would for sure have destroyed the giant purple grape! Yes, it's stupid and we don't want to see Paul Rudd like that, but if it's stupid and it still works, it's not stupid anymore. Paul would understand and take one for the team. Yep, this looks like a joke, but it's for real. This theory/joke picked up the pace again recently and basically became a Marvel meme with 'Endgame' so close and the Russo Brothers saw the chance and they fucking took it. There's another reason why fans believe that this might come true for real. Disclaimer, a 'Captain Marvel' spoiler ahead. So, remember how everyone was joking that 'what if Nick Fury lost his eye because of the cat?' when the trailer of 'Captain Marvel' came out? And, we all know it turned out to be true. Just like that, people are joking about Ant-Man going up Thanos' butt and what if it's actually true? What if the Russo Brothers are just overcompensating right now to not give out any spoilers? Whatever the case is, this is some good comic relief right now because we know we're losing some major characters for real this time. I wish I could say this was photoshopped but the Russo brothers really did that pic.twitter.com/U7zW1fYznN — mila | loki â¡ (@voiidmarvel) March 29, 2019 Yes, they see everything. the russo brothers seeing all the memes about ant-man crawling up thanos' asshole pic.twitter.com/GYfZBi9e7o — juliah (@spideystights) March 29, 2019 No, you can't unsee Scott stepping up. me @ the russo brother's ig profile picture pic.twitter.com/EbiGYYNdHw — rey ð«(@incorrectmarvel) March 29, 2019 It really is.

  12. It's finally time to get our hands on the 'Pokemon Go'-style Harry Potter game. The game is about to launch soon and will be called 'Harry Potter: Wizards Unite', and is probably the most anticipated AR game ever since 'Pokemon Go'. © Niantic The developers behind the game have put 'Harry Potter: Wizards Unite' up for pre-registration on Google Play and App Store. As of now, there's no word as to when the game will actually launch as a concrete date has not been set yet. All we can be sure of is that the game will launch very soon. However, you can see a slight preview of the gameplay here (https://www.harrypotterwizardsunite.com/post/hpwufirstlook/) that basically shows off the game's capabilities and AR features. The video confirms that the game will work very similar to 'Pokemon Go' as you will run around in the real world doing magic duels and capture creatures/items. © Niantic If you are interested in playing this game, we would recommend you pre-register on Google Play and the App Store as soon as possible. You will be alerted as soon as the game is made available for download. The game has been developed by Niantic, the same developer behind 'Pokemon Go' in partnership with Warner's Portkey Games label. The game will basically add an overlay of the wizarding world on the real world. The game draws influence from both Harry Potter movies, books, and the Fantastic Beasts franchise. © Niantic The game will also use some real-world locations to transform them into Inns in the game. Players will also be able to discover Portkeys that can transport players to iconic places from the franchise. Locations such as Ollivander's wand shop in Diagon Alley are also discoverable. Players will also be able to team up with others for duels, using spells to defeat enemies like Death Eaters and Dementors.
  13. 2018 was a tough year for West Indies batsman and former skipper Chris Gayle, especially when it came to becoming a part of his national team to represent his country in international matches and tournaments. Bad form, injuries and controversies infested the cricketer's career to the point that he wanted to say goodbye to the sport for good back then. What made him stay in touch with the athlete in himself were the league-level tournaments that are now being hosted by most of the top cricketing nations after the success of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Big Bash League, Pakistan Super League, Bangladesh Premier League, you name it and Gayle was there. However, 2019 brought the hitter some good fortune as the selectors decided to give him one more chance with the ODI series against the visiting England cricket team and another opportunity was all the self-proclaimed 'Universe Boss' was looking for. Playing on a superhuman level Gayle has scored 135, 50 and 162 runs in the first, second and fourth ODI matches against the Englishmen, not only becoming the first person in the history of international cricket to hit more than 500 sixes but also only the second West Indies cricketer to have more than 10,000 runs. What a record! ð³300 sixes and 10,000 ODI runs for the Universe Boss, Chris Gayle! ð´ð´ó §ó ¢ó ¥ó ®ó §ó ¿#MenInMaroon #ItsOurGame #ChrisGayle #GayleForce pic.twitter.com/aM3nDeduSa — Windies Cricket (@windiescricket) February 27, 2019 Even though Eoin Morgan's side is turning out to be way too much of a competition for the Windies, Gayle on his own, is reaching for the stars with his new-found form. Having publicly announced his decision to seek retirement after the ICC World Cup 2019, Gayle is now having second thoughts about his farewell. Overruling their own decision to part ways with the game they love isn't something new as players like Sachin Tendulkar and Shahid Afridi (obviously) have also done so in the past. And clearly, for somebody with Gayle's need to stay in the limelight, the thought of retirement has to be short-lived. "I just have to work on the body, and then maybe you can see a bit more Chris Gayle. Things change quickly,” Gayle said after losing a nail-biting fourth ODI against England. “Hopefully, the body can change in the next couple of months and we can see what happens. What's the matter with the body? I'm nearly 40. But could I un-retire? We'll see. We'll take it slowly." Never change, Universe Boss.
  14. The Motorola RAZR has been that one nostalgic smartphone we all want to see make a return but with updated features. According to a new report by The Wall Street Journal, the foldable display version of the Motorola RAZR will make a comeback, but will cost $1500. The original RAZR was one of the most popular and iconic phones before the iPhone was unveiled and it looks like Motorola wants to cash-in on the nostalgia. The new RAZR smartphone is expected to be launched in the US as an exclusive device with network carrier Verizon. The report suggests that the device is still in testing and further details are yet to be confirmed. © Concept Design This is not the first time Motorola has launched a smartphone with the RAZR branding, as we saw two smartphones in 2011 and 2012 respectively with the same branding. Having said that, the two smartphones did not have the flip device which was one of the reasons why it was not well received back in the day. As of now, there is no word on its specifications such as the screen size, its functionality or what is powering the smartphone under the hood. It is expected that Lenovo (the company that owns Motorola) will follow the original design of the RAZR and have a tall folding device. This design choice will be different from what we have already seen from Samsung and Huawei in the past week. © YouTube The WSJ reports go on to detail that Lenovo will manufacture over 2 Lakh RAZR devices and will be sold as more of a luxury product. The hefty price tag of $1,500 (Roughly Rs 1,06,700) definitely defines it as a luxury product, considering foldable smartphones are expensive to manufacture right now. The original RAZR V3 managed to sell over 130 million units back in the day and if Lenovo implements the folding display technology correctly, the company can achieve this goal in the near future.

  16. Just like your girlfriend's night skincare routine or the makeup kit that she carries around, you too need a grooming kit in place. Why do you ask? If you do not take care of your skin and your hair or your beard, you'll definitely be adding years to your face. Also if you're out in the dating game, not taking care of yourself is not attractive at all. So, here are 4 super essential grooming products (apart from the basic face wash and moisturizer) that you should add to your grooming kit: 1. An Essential Oil © Getty Images An essential oil, be it tea tree or lavender, or even any other natural ingredient that you like, can help you in countless ways. Firstly, they help tackle dryness, they also help to get you to sleep at night in case you have trouble doing so. They also reduce puffiness and signs of ageing. 2. An Under Eye Cream © Amazon An under-eye cream is a boon for racoon eyes and post-hangover cleanup. If you are awake from partying all night, use this so that your boss does not find out. In fact, they are a more permanent solution to dark eye circles. 3. A Face Mist © Amazon Another hangover remedy, a face mist helps freshen up your face and tackles all the dryness and tiredness from the night before. Just steal one from your girlfriend's kit and you'll never want to return it. 4. A Roll-On Deo © Getty Images In case you have a long day ahead of you, you need a roll-on to quickly stroke your pits with for a refreshing fragrance that doesn't turn off women.
  17. The Galaxy S10 can't seem to remain a secret anymore as leaks have been raining from every corner of the globe. Yesterday, a detailed hands-on video of the Galaxy S10 was leaked online which has now been removed. We virtually know everything about the Galaxy S10/S10+ except for the price — or is it? © YouTube The Galaxy S10 will launch in three variants i.e. Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, and the Galaxy S10+ and new leaks have now given us a hint towards the pricing of the upcoming smartphone. The ceramic version of the Galaxy S10 and S10+ is rumoured to come with 12GB of RAM and 1TB of internal storage. Being the most expensive version of the lineup, the smartphone is bound to break the bank. Having said that, the base model of the Galaxy S10e is expected to cost Rs 60,500 (based on leaked Chinese prices). The smaller Galaxy S10 is expected to start at Rs 72,700 whereas the top model can cost up to Yuan 9000 (Rs 95,000 approx). That's about $1,500. pic.twitter.com/5BIDyeegAf — Evan Blass (@evleaks) February 17, 2019 The price was leaked via reliable tipster Evan Blass and the prices shared looks like a screenshot from an e-commerce website in China. What's worthy to know is that the ceramic version with 12GB RAM and 1TB of internal storage is expected to cost Yuan 10,000 i.e. Rs. 1,05,000. This version of the smartphone is also expected to have 5G support which may be a contributing factor to its high pricing. © Youtube/MKBHD The pricing of these smartphones is expected to be higher in other countries, especially in India, as the prices are a bit lower in China when compared to other markets. Needless to say that these prices are based on a leak and should be taken with a pinch of salt until the smartphone is unveiled officially tomorrow. Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event is scheduled for February 20th where the South-Korean giant is expected to announce new flagship smartphones and possibly a foldable phone.
  18. Xiaomi's several social media accounts and executives have already revealed much of the Mi 9's design and hardware specifications. The phone will be launched on February 20 and the company is planning to showcase the device at MWC 2019 as well. CEO Lei Jun has highlighted that the screen-to-body ratio of the upcoming Mi-series flagship will be higher than what was featured on last year's Mi 8. It is also reported to have a Samsung made AMOLED display panel with Gorilla Glass 6 protection. The display shall also house an integrated fingerprint scanner that Xiaomi says will be 25 per cent faster. © Xiaomi / Weibo The company has also given a sneak peek at the Mi 9's display, highlighting its thin bottom bezels. The phone is also confirmed to carry an eye protection mode to reduce blue light impact. Additional specs include a 90.7 per cent screen-to-body ratio, a 6.4-inch Full HD+ display, and a smaller water-drop style notch. It shall also sport the third generation ultrasonic proximity sensor for better accuracy. Obviously, the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset along with a 3500mAh battery. © Xiaomi / Weibo On the rear, it shall have a 48-megapixel primary wide angle sensor, 12-megapixel secondary telephoto sensor with PDAF and lastly, a 16-megapixel ultra wide angle sensor. The front shall have a 20-megapixel selfie camera. The device will use pixel binning technology to output 12-megapixel images in low light conditions for improved image quality. Xiaomi claims that the ultra-wide angle camera supports 4cm macro photography. Additionally, the company has also revealed that the triple rear camera module is protected by a layer of sapphire glass that is claimed to be extremely durable and resistant to scratches. © Xiaomi / Weibo Jun has also confirmed that the Mi 9 will come with reverse charging technology, something we expect to see onboard the Samsung Galaxy S10 as well. The phone shall ship with MIUI 10, based on Android 9 Pie. The top variant could come with 512GB internal storage as well as 10GB RAM. The Mi 9 is expected to come with a starting price of CNY 2,999 (Rs 30,000). Colour options currently include Black, Blue, White, and Gold.

  20. We've been talking about a foldable smartphone by Samsung for years and it seems like the company will finally reveal the smartphone. We will finally get a glimpse at Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event on February 20 as the company teased the smartphone via a tweet. The South Korean company tweeted with the caption “The future of mobile will unfold,” which basically confirms that it would at least give consumers a glimpse into the foldable smartphone which is said to open and close like a book. The future of mobile will unfold on February 20, 2019. #SamsungEvent pic.twitter.com/MHvwrt7Rf4 — Samsung Mobile (@SamsungMobile) February 11, 2019 We've already seen the prototype of the phone back in November when Samsung showed off the foldable phone encased in a bulky cover. Justin Denison, Samsung Electronics America SVP and GM, indicated that the phone was hidden in the case so that the true design could be revealed at its official launch which looks like it will be happening in eight days. © Twitter Denison also detailed that the smartphone could not only expand to seven inches but also run three apps at the same time. It is said to have a very sleek appearance with a screen that “had to be thinner than any other.” © Twitter/CNet Samsung Vietnam may have actually revealed the design of the phone earlier this month in a teaser video that is now deleted. Samsung is not the only phone maker that has been working on a foldable smartphone as Rouyu and LG both plan to launch their foldable device later this year.
  21. We finally got to see new details on Mortal Kombat 11 as it was revealed during a live event last night. The event showed off never seen before gameplay, new character additions and some notable changes that will come to the popular fighting game series. Here's everything we know so far: New Characters Apart from the classic characters that will be making a return, we saw a few new characters that will be a part of the new roster. Classic characters like Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Raiden, and Sonya Blade will make a return and even missing characters from the MK10 like Baraka and Skarlet will be a part of the roster. We will see two new characters i.e. Geras and Kronika who will have their own set of powers. © NeatherRealm/Warner Brothers Geras will have the ability to control time and can also summon objects made of stone and sand. Time controlling powers will also let him teleport and trap his enemies. He can also stop or rewind time while holding the opponent is a frozen state. You can see all his powers in action in the reveal trailer below: Kronika has been “running the show since the first Mortal Kombat,” but had to intervene when Raiden altered the timeline in the previous game. We don't know for now whether she will be a playable character or not as of now. NetherRealm also teased another possible returning character, Kabal, who debuted in 'Mortal Kombat 3'. Gameplay © NeatherRealm The fighting mechanics on the game will be different from previous games and can be traced back to MK9. The bottom corners of the screen will now have two meters i.e one for offensive moves and one for defence. Players will be able to build up these meters and unleash Fatal Blows once the meter is full. Also, if players are able to perform a perfect block, the character will break out of an attack directly into a combo. Story The new story will pick up after 'Mortal Kombat 9' and the trailer shows a brutal version of Raiden removing Shinnok's head. Then, Kronika appears and uses her time manipulation powers to pit Mortal Kombatants against different versions of themselves—young, old, customized, et cetera. Launch Date & PC Requirements 'Mortal Kombat 11' launches a worldwide on April 21, with a multiplayer beta kicking off on March 28 and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. What's cool is that PC gamers do not require high-end hardware. It will cost Rs 1,349 on steam while the premium edition will cost Rs 2,049. Mortal Kombat 11 PC System Requirements The minimum system requirements for 'Mortal Kombat' 11 PC are as follows: â OS: 64-bit Windows 7 / Windows 10 Processor: Intel Core i5-750, 2.66 GHz / AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 3 1200, 3.1 GHz â Memory: 8 GB RAM â Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 / AMD Radeon HD 7950 or AMD Radeon R9 270 â DirectX: Version 11 â Network: Broadband Internet connection Recommended PC Requirements â OS: 64-bit Windows 7 / Windows 10 â Processor: Intel Core i3-2100, 3.10 GHz / AMD FX-6300, 3.5 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1400, 3.2 GHz â Memory: 8 GB RAM â Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 or Nvidai GeForce GTX 1060-6GB / AMD Radeon R9 290 or RX 570 â DirectX: Version 11 â Network: Broadband Internet connection
  22. For years we've heard companies brag about their research and development on foldable or bendable displays. Flexing a display isn't new though; both Samsung and LG had their short stints with slightly bendable displays with the Galaxy Round and G Flex. But, the technology remains new and lacks practical applications right now. Samsung got us all excited again in November by finally showing off a concept phone. It did not detail whether the smartphone will go on sale anytime soon or how much it will cost, but it's sure that we can expect a launch soon in the coming quarters. © Samsung Last year, we saw reports stating that even Huawei and LG are working on "foldable" displays. One thing is crystal clear, the future of smartphones is bendable. And, this is the essential reason why every major player wants a piece in the development process. Google is relatively new to the "hardware" part of smartphones with the Pixel series. Even after three generations of launches, the line-up is yet to pick up traction in terms of sales. Now, a fresh rumour is doing the rounds stating Google is also working on foldable phones. © YouTube According to Wccf tech, their source "Murtazin" believes Google has a foldable smartphone under the works. The source has a mixed track record, and we wouldn't jump seeing a single report, but there are multiple official announcements that solidify this claim. In August, Google announced native support for foldable phones in Android. And, Google was also awarded a patent for a hinged folding phone, and it looked like it might be working with Motorola on the development. © USPTO The United States Patent and Trademark Office published the details of the invention on its website, which shows a two-part handset with a hinged area in the middle. The majority of the text covers the method of displaying on or either side of the hinge, plus the software that would control it. Additionally, the document illustrates the different modes the phone could be used in. Keep in mind, it's normal for companies to patent technology as soon as possible. But, this doesn't guarantee fruition of the project. We are confident about one thing though, Google won't be the "first" one to release this technology. Samsung has been aiming for the throne since years and seems almost ready to grab it. Source: Wccf tech
  23. 2019 has begun and nerds are even more excited to see what the future holds. We've already compiled a list of top smartphone moments of 2018 and now, we'll talk about the trends that shall take-off soon in the coming year. Technology has been advancing at a rapid pace, and there's no stopping it. Not only are features getting more complicated and intense, but also cheaper. A flagship feature trickles down to the midrange as well as the budget segment in no time. And with the plethora of options available, brands are working harder every day to differentiate themselves. These are the top features we expect to see in 2019 smartphones: 1. Foldable Phones: © YouTube This is by far the most interesting concept, it's something we've been waiting for years. Samsung has periodically teased that they're working on the technology and shall be ready for scaled consumer manufacturing soon. In November of 2018, they finally showed off a concept phone for just a few seconds. Flexible OLED technology will allow the actual screen itself to bend and fold without the use of hinges or the extra bulk associated with implementing two separate screens, meaning a foldable thinner smartphone. Samsung did not detail whether the smartphone will go on sale anytime soon or how much it will cost, but it's expected to come out soon, and cost a bomb. Even though it'll take some more time to make it cheaper, multiple companies like Huawei and LG are researching too. 2. Punch-Hole Camera: © Samsung Samsung Galaxy A8s, the Nova 4 as well as the Honor View 20 are among the few to already sport a punch-hole camera. Samsung completely skipped the notch and went ahead with this design addition. On the A8s, a little camera hole in the display houses a 24-megapixel front-facing selfie camera. That is a major step up from some of the smaller notches we've seen in other devices that have opted to go for teardrop display cutout rather than this hole-punch method. The implementation is still at a very nascent stage though. A black ring around the camera is the result of the camera protruding through every layer of the display except for the very surface level. Thanks to multiple layers, light has a greater chance of leaking through and affects image quality as well as display durability. While punch-hole displays are expected to be limited to the higher-midrange or flagships, the notch isn't going anywhere soon. The water-drop notch has been a hit and more and more companies are expected to house it. 3. Time Of Flight Camera: © Vivo Time of Flight (ToF) is an optical radar system and is able to identify faces even from comparatively long distances. It's said to function perfectly even in different lighting conditions. The recently launched OPPO R17 Pro is the first phone to feature this sensor. ToF 3D Sensing Technology offers an advanced experience by enabling 3D mapping at up to three metres from the phone while having a smaller baseline than traditional technology that is called "structured light". It has exponentially more sensors points than iPhone's current 3D array setup and has even more applications. Apart from authentication, it can also be used to identify hand gestures and upgrade the existing AR sticker experience. 4. In-Display Fingerprint Scanner: © BCCL This is no longer a "new" feature, but we expect it to get better and cheaper in the coming months. After the launch of the iPhone 5S, every brand was trying to incorporate a fingerprint scanner on their phone. In a couple of years, an external scanner has become a bare minimum necessity. In the same way, an in-display fingerprint scanner is slightly slower than the external one, but companies are constantly improving the mechanism. Synaptics has already released multiple improved variants in one year itself, hence you'll notice a lot of difference between the Vivo X21 and OnePlus 6T's unlocking speed. 5. Faster Charging And Bigger Batteries: © OPPO There are several such technologies available, including Qualcomm Quick Charge, OnePlus Dash Charge, among others. Brands are now involved in a race, who has the fastest solution? The Huawei Mate 20 Pro houses a 4200mAh battery with 40W SuperCharge and also supports 15W wireless charging support. According to PhoneArena, you can charge 1.5 per cent of the battery in just a minute while 22W charging on the P20 Pro restores 1.1 per cent every minute. In comparison, Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 takes 30 minutes or less to charge 50 per cent and OnePlus' Dash Charging can get to 60 per cent charge in just 30 minutes. Battery sizes too have shot up and it's not just for the flagships. Even a budget phone like the Redmi Note 6 Pro comes with a 4000mAh battery. Companies are also working on improving the life cycle of batteries, and this is something Apple really needs to start considering.
  24. Mark your calendars as the last and final season of 'Games of Thrones' is coming in 2019. The eighth season of the epic fantasy will premiere in April 2019, bringing an end to the decade-old saga. The most popular show in the history of the world television will feature the last six episodes in the coming year; an early trailer of the show was recently released. As the saga is nearing its end, fans are filling their social media feeds with all sorts of predictions and theories. Little has been revealed about the fate of each character by the makers of the show and George R. R. Martin himself. If you have watched all seasons of 'Game of Thrones' and you know about each of the characters, here is a definitive list of everyone who is going to die or come out alive by the end of season eight: 1. Daenerys Targaryen Status: Dead Reason: Daenerys has always claimed herself to be the rightful queen of the seven kingdoms. Since Season one, she has been fighting for the Iron Throne with her three dragons (now two). What would 'Game of Thrones' be without its strongest character alive? But, hold your horses, as most of the fan theories claim Khaleesi's death near the end of Season 8. Now when Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow are each other's new love interests, their alliance will further lead to the birth of the Targaryen baby and it is during her childbirth when Daenerys might die. Another theory which supports her death is her vision of Khal Drogo holding the baby, as she walks away from the Iron Throne. This also indicates that Daenerys might not become the ultimate queen of the seven kingdoms but save the seven kingdoms by devoting her life for the baby. In any way, Dany's death is the most heartbreaking but probable outcome fans are expecting. 2. Jon Snow Status: Alive Reason: The last time Jon Snow died, fans completely lost their minds and troubled the show makers with one single question: When is Jon Snow going to be alive again? And now it looks like the makers of the show have got some other plans for Snow. All we have to do is to wait for their (Daenerys-Jon's) baby. Maybe, he becomes the ultimate ruler. Jon has to remain alive anyway. Also, as per an interesting theory, Jon Snow didn't do what his cousin Rob Stark did. Rob was killed for his loyalty to Walder Frey. This is what Snow avoided when Cersei asked him to bend the knee. Maybe, Jon is destined to live long! 3. Sansa Stark Status: Alive Reason: Sansa is another lead character in the series. She is not going to die, not until she takes the ultimate revenge for her parent's death. It would also be interesting to see how Sansa would save herself from the army of the White Walkers. We wonder how nothing could kill Sansa till now, neither the harsh life in King's Landing, nor Ramsay Bolton's atrocities. She made it alive to Winterfell. It simply indicates that the lady of Winterfell will survive. 4. Bran Stark Status: Dead-Alive Reason: Bran's story has remained different from the others. Though Bran has already united with his sisters, he has somehow always been destined to become the Three-Eyed Raven. He may become immortal soon so metaphorically he will be dead but not really! 5. Arya Stark Status: Dead Reason: We are afraid that Arya won't be able to survive the attack by the army of the dead. In other words, the girl might indeed become 'No One'. It is a bit hard to accept her fate since Arya has been the ultimate survivor, living solely to avenge the death of her father, and to see her die for nothing would be heart-breaking. 6. Cersei Lannister Status: Dead Reason: But before Arya is killed, she has to kill Cersei anyway. Remember, Cersei is still on Arya's list of people to kill. However, there could be another reason for Cersei's death. We believe her own lover cum twin, Jaime Lannister is going to kill her. 7. Jaime Lannister Status: Alive Reason: Though Jaime Lannister is the Kingslayer, there is no way his brother Tyrion is going to let him die at the hands of Jon Snow or Daenerys. Jaime saved Tyrion's life and the same could happen to him! He is the only person Tyrion trusts after all. 8. Tyrion Lannister Status: Alive Reason: He can't be dead. He is now Khaleesi's advisor and Jon loves Khaleesi, moreover, Jamie is his brother, so evidently, nobody is going to kill him or at least succeed in their attempts to do so. Tyrion's ultimate purpose is going to be for a greater good. Even suggesting his name for the list of dead people would be so much injustice. 9. Theon Greyjoy Status: Dead Reason: In his pursuit of saving his sister Yara from the hands of Euron, it may be possible that Theon might kill himself. Moreover, Ramsay Bolton has caused him so much physical and psychological damage that one can't possibly imagine what must be going through his mind right now. We are sure, Reek would keep coming back to him and that may be the ultimate reason for his death. 10. Yara Greyjoy Status: Dead Reason: Euron Greyjoy would kill her! Yara might not be able to see herself being saved by Theon. It was easy for Euron to capture Yara and make Theon run away. 11. Brienne of Tarth Status: Dead Reason: She is one character of utter importance in 'Game of Thrones' in all aspects. Brienne has pledged her life to Sansa and Arya, and there is no wayshe is going to leave them alone when the army of the dead reaches Winterfell. She would ultimately die fighting the war in the North. 12. Podrick Payne Status: Dead Reason: Who really cares if he is alive or dead? Podrick is a man without a purpose! 13. Samwell Tarly Status: Alive Reason: Sam has already faced the White Walkers and even killed one. He would go to any extent to serve his real purpose and save Gilly and the baby. Also, he is the cutest character in the series and Jon Snow's best friend. We aren't expecting his death. There is also a theory which states that the entire time, it was Samwell Tarly who was narrating 'A Song of Ice and Fire'. 14. Gilly Status: Alive (Maybe) Reason: It would be harsh to kill Gilly and let Sam be alone taking care of the baby. This is the only reason she might be able to come out of 'Game of Thrones' alive, however, things could take a different turn too. We have seen many unexpected deaths so far. 15. Little Sam Status: Obviously Alive Reason: Babies are harmless! 16. Lyanna Mormont Status: Alive Reason: She is fierce, unstoppable and a true lady. Not all queens are going to be killed, and she might be the one remaining untouched by death. 17. Jorah Mormont Status: Alive Reason: With Jorah Mormont finding a cure for his grayscale and back to helping Khaleesi and the team, we can't find any major reason for him being killed. As he would dedicate his life in fighting for the good, he might be the last amongst those surviving the war in the North. 18. Davos Seaworth Status: Alive Reason: The makers of the show have kept Davos alive till now and we believe he is going to survive further as well. Stannis could be killed but not Davos, people have got a different kind of admiration for him. 19. The Hound Status: Dead Reason: Cleganebowl, in an ultimate face-off! 20. Tormund Giantsbane Status: Dead Reason: He might die fighting the White Walkers. Though he has proved to be a medium between the Wildlings and the Crows, we are afraid he won't be able to last the fight. 21. Gendry Status: Alive Cause: What if we say that that Melisandre's magic is going to save him? 22. Bronn Status: Alive Reason: Since Jaime is going to survive, so does his best friend. 23. Varys Status: Alive Reason: Varys knows how to survive the worst. He has saved himself before from the wrath of Cersei, we believe he is going to stay alive to see his friend Tyrion's ultimate fate. 24. Ellaria Sand Status: Alive (For All We Know) Reason: Cersei is not going to kill her. Maybe, she stays alive, even if she has to watch her daughter die in front of her. 25. Edmure Tully Status: Dead (For All We Know) Reason: He may die in his cell! 26. Grey Worm Status: Dead Reason: He may die in a fight with the Golden Company only. Undoubtedly, he is a dedicated character. 27. Missandei Status: Alive Reason: We believe that Missandei is ultimately going to be the ruler of Meereen and Khaleesi would set her free from her role as Advisor to the Queen. 28. Daario Naharis Status: Dead (unclear) Reason: In season six, Daario and the Second Sons were left behind in Meereen and now when Daenerys has found her new love in Jon Snow, Daario's fate remains unclear. He would most probably be dead unknowingly. 29. Jaqen H'ghar Status: Alive Reason: Since he is 'No One', maybe he was already dead all this time! 30. Meera Reed Status: Alive Reason: She is the one who brought back Bran safely to Winterfell. Meera won't be seen in Season Eight, we are hoping that she will still be alive somewhere 31. Hot Pie Status: Dead Reason: Since the White Walkers would be taking over the North, Hot Pie might die without doing anything. 32. Grandmaester Ebrose Status: Alive Reason: No particular reason for him to be dead. 33. Beric Dondarrion Status: Dead Reason: Though his friend has saved him many times by bringing him back to life, he may be dead in the final season. 34. Melisandre Status: Dead Reason: The red woman is actually old anyway! Remember when she took off her red hood and necklace? She has given a second life to Jon Snow but we aren't sure if she has much left to her role. 35. Euron Greyjoy Status: Dead Reason: A complete villain, he is destined to die. 36. The Mountain Status: Dead Reason: Do we need to say Cleganebowl again? 37. Qyburn Status: Dead Reason: Being one of those on Cersei's team, he has to meet his ultimate fate and that is death. 38. Robin Arryn Status: Dead Reason: Why is he alive till now, especially when his parents are dead? He should have died when he humiliated Sansa! 39. Night King Status: Dead Reason: Season Seven was the first time we saw the Night King in full action. He effortlessly killed one of Khaleesi's mightiest dragons with his big icicle, convincing everyone that he is untouchable. However, one popular fan theory suggests that the Night King would ultimately win the war. He would later shatter himself to pieces as he sits on the Iron Throne (which is made up of a thousand valerian steel swords). If that has to happen, it would be one of the most bizarre endings to the show. 40. White Walkers Status: Alive Reason: The army of the White Walkers is so huge, that it is just impossible to kill them. Even if a major chunk of them die from the wrath of Khaleesi's dragons, there isn't a probability that all of them are going to be killed. As per the predictions, a major war is going to be fought between the living and the dead inside Winterfell and not all living will be able to kill the dead.
  25. After hogging the limelight for controversy and fighting with his co-stars, his reverse transformation and getting married to his long-time girlfriend, Ginni Chatrath; Kapil Sharma is finally back in business and making people fall from their chairs and rolling on the floor laughing. K9 Productions With a couple of fresh faces and fresher and more humourous content, Kapil Sharma shows how comebacks are done. In fact, the success of the premiere episode speaks volumes about how kickass the upcoming episodes are going to be. K9 Productions The first episode featured the team of 'Simmba' i.e. Sara Ali Khan, Rohit Shetty and Baba Ranveer Singh. When you bring Bollywood's livewire Ranveer Singh and Comedy King Kapil Sharma under the same roof, do we really have to mention how epic the episode was going to be? It's anything but obvious and that's exactly what happened. Fans couldn't control their laughter and excitement throughout the show, and soon started lauding Kapil Sharma and his new show on social media. #TheKapilSharmaShow yaad teri aayegi ðloved every moment of kapil sharma show @KapilFans @KapilSharmaK9 @SonyTV way to go guys .. thank you for awesome time .. you guys rock — rajan minocha (@rajanngp) December 29, 2018 What a comeback for @KapilSharmaK9 , Kapil Sharma show was amazing tonight, I'm crying from laughter.

However, everyone's favourite Gutthi aka Dr. Mashoor Gulati aka Sunil Grover is missing from the scene because of his new show, and it will be interesting to see who wins in the TRP race this time.
