  1. Apple has refreshed its MacBook Pro laptops with new and powerful Intel core processors, which means you'll now get better performance out of these MacBooks. In fact, Apple says these are the fastest MacBook Pro laptops it has ever made. That's cool, but the most important change here is the new keyboard. Apple has been receiving a lot of flak for making poor keyboards for a long time now, so we hope these new ones are better. The company didn't provide any details, but we do know that they've changed the material used in its butterfly switch keyboards to avoid the problem of producing double keystrokes. © Apple As for the spec bump, here's how powerful the new MacBook Pro models are: The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bat now comes with faster 8th gen processors. The base model packs a 2.4GHz quad-core Core i5 CPU with Turbo Boost speed up to 4.1GHz, and you can configure the notebook with a beefier 2.8GHz quad-core Core i7 CPU if you're willing to shell out more cash. The non-Touch Bar model sadly hasn't received a spec bump, so the new base 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is now 2.3x faster than the fastest dual-core non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro that's available. As for the 15-inch MacBook Pros, well these are show stoppers. Apple has updated the 15-inch MacBook Pro models with 9th gen Intel core processors. The base model here comes with a 2.6GHz six-core Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost speed up to 4.5GHz. Meanwhile, the top end variant comes fitted with a 2.3GHz eight-core Core i9 processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.8GHz. © Apple There's also a variant with a 2.4GHz eight-core Core i9 processor with Turbo Boost up to 5GHz. That, of course, will cost you a lot of money, but it's the fastest MacBook Pro laptop that Apple has ever made to date. All the 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Radeon Pro 555x and 560x discrete graphics, depending on the model you're picking. Let's hope these new ones won't have any heating issues. Pricing & Availability The new MacBook Pro lineup starts at Rs. 1,59,900 for the 13-inch with Touch Bar model, whereas the 15-inch model will come at a starting price of Rs 1,99,900. These updated MacBook Pro laptops will be available in India starting this week and you'll be able to pick one up from Apple Authorised resellers across the country.
  2. In case you have not watched today's finale, then here's a spoiler warning for you. For everyone who had watched and reacted and commented and lamented , you are not alone! Today's episode has left most fans with a cocktail of thoughts and before anything else, can I please take a moment of how brilliantly Bran orchestrated it all? Like Ekta Kapoor needs to sign him up for her next show. Bran can see anything right? So he knew the Iron Fleet was in Dragonstone and could kill Rheagal? He told Sansa Jon's heritage knowing it would turn Dany nuts. He knew Dany would go mad and wipe out King's Landing. Bran orchestrated a terrorist attack to take power in a crisis. — AlternateHistoryHub (@AltHistoryHub) May 20, 2019 When you don't contribute the group project and still get an A #GameofThronesFinale #GameofThrones #GOT #GOTFinale #DemThrones #TheFinalEpisode pic.twitter.com/tZDmThF5gn — Game of Thrones Memes (@IronThroneMemes) May 20, 2019 Bran watching Dany burn innocent people in King's Landing but knowing his time has arrived pic.twitter.com/YwXKl89UfG — Steadman™ (@AsteadWesley) May 20, 2019 Now with Bran out of our system, Dany's fall was sure a shocker for a second with how swiftly it ended for her at the hands of her lover. The way Drogon cried after he saw Daenerys was dead... you could hear his pain and heartbreak. His mother was dead. One of the hardest scenes I've ever had to watch the whole series. #GameOfThonesFinale #GOTFinale pic.twitter.com/Gy3WFNxSjH — felipe (@espinosasguey) May 20, 2019 Also, if you think about this, you've got to give it to Drogon.

If they all were told who Jon Snow really was, they would have chosen him as the king. But the Starks remained silent and continued to hold on to power. Classic reality tho! It was Jon who liberated everyone, after all, but how they all betrayed him. #GameOfThrones #GOTFinale — Gaurav Pandhi à¤à¥à¤°à¤µ पाà¤à¤§à¥ (@GauravPandhi) May 20, 2019 With a disappointing ending for many characters, I guess most of us are like this poor guy right now. me after final episode #GameOfThrones #GameOfThronesFinale #GoTFinale pic.twitter.com/nSdFeNzjU8 — oÄuzhan (@theoguzhan1) May 20, 2019 Well this marks an end of an era, my friends. With GOT down the road, what next for us? There's still time for a show to take over, until then let's drink to some disappointment and a flaming thought of how Bran was the real player of this game.
  3. 'Game Of Thrones' is not just one of the biggest shows possibly on the planet right now, but also an eyebrow raiser for a tonne of things. From the conniving plots to the gruesome deaths that might've affected millions of viewers across the globe to the dream pay packages for the actors, there are a number of reasons 'GOT' is special. via GIPHY A leading publication broke the salaries down for us: 'Game of Thrones' season 8 is a total of 434 minutes. Among the actors, the actor who plays the actor Cersei Lannister, Lena Headey screen time's is only 25 of those minutes. Another leading publication reported that her salary is around $1.2 million which comes down to 8,40,03,000 rupees, a remuneration which is on the same level as her co-stars Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kit Harington, and Peter Dinklage. © Getty Images And apparently, her remuneration per minute would come down to $48,000, which would come down to Rs 33,60,000 approximately. And if we consider what action dominated her screen time this season: it would come down to her sipping wine and staring into the void from the safe (ahem not after the last episode: via GIPHY It is important to note at this point that Cersei Lannister's character played a central role in the preceding five seasons as a woman for her unpredictable game-changing moves in order to stick around the Iron Throne. This season, however, her character did not see much light as the central focus shifted to the White Walkers. But earning Rs 33 lakhs per minute for sipping wine and overseeing a war being shot is certainly a dream job we wouldn't mind having.
  4. This season of 'Game of Thrones' has been nothing but disappointing and it's breaking the hearts of fans on many levels. From the very underwhelming deaths of Jaime and Cersei Lannister, a rather bland Cleganebowl, to a boring Jon Snow half-heartedly mumbling "she's my Queen", everyone is really upset with the proceedings of the final season. © HBO A particularly distraught fan named Dylan.D decided to seek help from equally upset 'GoT' fans and filed a petition (https://www.change.org/p/hbo-remake-game-of-thrones-season-8-with-competent-writers) to actually remake and rewrite the entire Eighth Season with good competent writers. The text on the petition reads, “David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on. This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!” There are close to 2,70,000 signatures already on the petition, so we know for sure that the feeling is mutual. © HBO Earlier this week, the writers of the series became the butt of all jokes after people started claiming that when one Googled 'worst writers', the names of the 'GOT' writers would pop up. With less than 4 days for the finale, we sincerely hope the last episode of one of the greatest shows on Earth doesn't break our hearts.
  5. Actors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe appearing in 'Black Mirror' is a bigger crossover than 'Avengers: Infinity War' and 'Avengers: Endgame'. (Sorry, had to do it) First of all, 'Black Mirror' Season five is officially less than a month away, yay! We've been waiting for such a long time and honestly, 'Bandersnatch' was just not enough. Here's the teaser for the fifth season which will premiere on Netflix on June 5th. The first thing you notice is obviously Falcon aka Sam Wilson from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, with him joining the cast of 'Black Mirror' and appearing in one of the episodes this season, we had enough actors who've appeared in MCU who have also been a part of the Black Mirror cast (or Black Mirror Cinematic Universe?) to come up with a list. Here we go: 1. Anthony Mackie © Marvel Falcon, or should I say, Captain America, is going to be the lead in one of the three new stories coming with the fifth season of 'Black Mirror'. Anthony Mackie being a part of the cast, is also reviving the whole 'Marvel vs DC' conversation since Yahya Abdul-Mateen II from 'Aquaman' is also a part of the show. I'm excited to see what kind of existential crisis his episode has in store for us. 2. Hayley Atwell Agent Carter needs no introduction and actually, even Hayley Atwell as well. Playing the lead in 'Be Right Back', she made the already emotional premise of the episode come to life beautifully. This specific episode is one of the highest rated episodes in the series and I'm guessing a lot of credit goes to Hayley for sure. 3. Daniel Kaluuya Before appearing in Oscar-nominated movies, Daniel Kaluuya was the lead of the second ever episode of 'Black Mirror' - '15 Million Merits'. The 'Black Mirror' episode was somewhat okay but he gave one of the most memorable scenes in 'Black Panther'. 4. Letitia Wright Another 'Black Panther' and 'Black Mirror' star, Letitia Wright appeared in the episode 'Black Museum'. Pretending to be a tourist with a few hours to kill while her car gets charged, she goes to the museum with one aim - avenging her late father. Along with the main plot, that episode has so many other stories, and that's why it's easily one of the best episodes of the series. 5. Benedict Wong I actually found out today that Wong from 'Doctor Strange' (and 'Infinity War' and 'Endgame') has also appeared in 'Black Mirror'. He played a police detective in one of the most brutal episodes of the series ever - 'Hated In The Nation'. Bonus - Miley Cyrus I was planning on including this as a joke since the God of Thunder is her brother in law, but surprisingly, she did voice one line in a scene in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2'. Well, that was a surprise.
  6. This article contains heavy spoilers. Proceed with caution! The second last episode of 'Game of Thrones' just aired this morning in India and we're not that thrown off as we thought we'd be. Mostly because there were a lot of predictions made for this episode, and most of them came true. Most off, Dany did take the form of the mad queen and burn King's Landing to the ground, while the unsullied and the Dothraki continued to slew human life: men, women and children alike. © HBO Of course the much awaited fight, the Cleganebowl took place like it had to, sans Arya as Arya was stumbling about, trying to make sense of her presence in King's Landing, after a very strong build-up over her eventual goal, which is to kill the queen (Cersei). Well, she didn't. The queen died an unfortunate death, when she caved, while the roof fell on her and her lover Jaime. So, yes, the makers hurried through the plot faster than Bronne hurried out of the entire series, and we're not wondering 'what next' anymore. © HBO In fact, we'll let everyone else decide how they took in the episode and what they actually expect from the last episode. Yup, Twitter is buzzing with GoT episode 5 updates and here are some reactions that are funny and quite relatable. I truly appreciate Varys' commitment to being messy and petty. RIP to a real messy Queen. The Seven Kingdoms will never forget this icon.ð #DemThrones #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/CS0oJjRCXs — Olivia Broussard (@OliviaBroussar1) 13 May 2019 *Dany's trying to figure out who spilled the tea* Varys, Sansa, Arya, Tyrion and everyone else:#GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/dXOahZ4VGF — Julian Hagins (@julian_hagins1) 13 May 2019 Arya arriving to Westeros to kill Cersei #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/22P6m6vSSv — S&M L â (@Tiolucas_8) 13 May 2019 #demthrones Cersei: Ser Gregor stay by my side Ser Gregor: pic.twitter.com/nVZG8sythv — Matt Igus (@IAmStatMatt) 13 May 2019 The hound when the mountain pulled the dagger from his brain #demthrones #gameofthrones pic.twitter.com/PSbAoa10eq — BigNibbaSpecial (@NibbaSpecial) 13 May 2019 Drogon: Happy Mother's Day!!!!! #Gameofthrones #GOT #DemThrones pic.twitter.com/vhN5B3YCNQ — Zaneta (@ZanetaGAdme) 13 May 2019 #GameOfThrones #DemThrones Tyrion: you think all those people in the Red Keep deserve to die?

Of course, some of us are disappointed by how Cersei died. I mean seriously, Cersei, of all the villains, died due to faulty infrastructure??? Anyhow, let's wait for the grand finale, you never know how things turn around.
  7. Are steroids always bad? I do not think so. After all, 'Steroid' is a medical term. There could be many reasons when steroid usage is justified. For example, when prescribed by a doctor for certain conditions like TRT, HIV, burns etc. Another being their usage by pro-bodybuilders and athletes who are competing nationally or internationally and their livelihood depends on their physique. © Getty Images However, there are a few reasons for which the usage of steroids is completely not required. If you are using or planning to use steroids for any of these reasons, it is literally very stupid indeed: 1. To Become A Trainer: Being a trainer myself, who has been lifting naturally since 2010, I`ve met tens of trainers at different gyms. Initially, I used to get shocked learning about their steroid usage without even having a training base. Most of the time they are caught in this delusion that they need to look like a bodybuilder to be a trainer, which is not true at all. This makes them take anabolic steroids to get quick results. The same results which they could`ve gotten easily by training for a few more months with apt diet and training and that too without the side-effect of steroids. To become a trainer you need to have few years of lifting experience under your belt and some education. Having a decent healthy-looking physique is a plus point to motivate your clients but going for anabolics, thinking you need to look like a bodybuilder/physique model is completely uncalled for. Remember, your knowledge helps your clients get results, not your monstrously big physique. 2. To Impress The Opposite ***: In today`s world of social media and tinder where shirtless pics get more likes, the sole aim of some youngsters for going to the gym is to get shredded/abs, post pics on social and get laid. This involves the usage of steroids and other drugs like clen and what not. The more desperate the guy is, the quicker he will get into shortcuts. © Getty Images Every second guy who is a gym-goer and is on Instagram has abs, but do they have girlfriends? Ask them and you will know. You may impress some juvenile teenage girls with your shredded physique but getting into a real relationship requires way more than just physique. It's you as a complete person that impresses the opposite ***, not your 3 hours everyday gym session. 3. On Trainers' Recommendations: If your trainer tries to brainwash you by saying “Every guy with a good physique is probably on steroids and you should take as well if you want those results”. He's either bullshitting you or probably has no idea himself. There are people with great physiques mostly due to two reasons- Great genes or years of training experience or a combination of both of these. These people with years of training experience will look better any day than your average guy/trainer who took steroids after just 6 months of training. Pro coaches make their pro-athletes use steroids for competition prep, that`s another story. But as an average gym-going guy who just wants to look good in clothes or naked, steroids are a big no due to their side-effects. 4. To Compete In Local Bodybuilding Competition: I don`t want to sound like I'm discouraging you to participate in local competitions but participating in such shows by using/abusing steroids is not worth it at all. © Getty Images Youngsters, usually with not much experience, try to compete in such shows and in order to win or secure good positions, go for steroids hoping to get massive or get a next-level shredded physique. Let me tell you, even after taking steroids they don`t get the desired results because steroids are not magic. They don`t have much training experience under their belt and have no idea about dieting and want steroids to do all the magic for them. Steroid usage could be justified in case you were preparing for a national or pro event after few years of dedicated training. But shutting your natural testosterone production for an event which gives you a tub of protein powder or gainer isn`t very smart. That`s all folks! Hope this helped. Share it if you can with a friend who goes to the gym and is in dire need of your help.
  8. Before you make a face at “yet another Mother's Day article”, let us tell you that this piece will tell you why we need to celebrate our mothers every day because of all these selfless and amazing things they do for us every single day. Yet, most often than not, we take everything that she does for granted and let alone saying 'Thank You', we don't even acknowledge it. We've listed down such 10 priceless and utterly selfless things our mothers do for us all the time that we don't thank her for: 1. For Being Our Biggest Cheerleader © Sharma Productions No matter what sort of a 'low' we are going through, be it personal or professional, our mothers always come through as our biggest cheerleaders. They make us see the silver lining, lift our spirit and fill our very being with hope and positivity just with their words. 2. For Always Knowing When We Need Our Favourite Food One look at us and mothers know when it is time to whip up our favourite dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Be it squabbles at the playground, or struggles with homework and tests, our moms always know how to make our mood better. 3. For Magically Retrieving Our Misplaced Goods © Hope Productions We would like to challenge all of you reading this, if your mother was ever unable to find a lost pair of socks, your favourite t-shirt or your misplaced assignment. It can't be. She magically finds them all! 4. For Erasing Every Nightmare With Her Soothing Touch As kids, it was her we rushed to every time a nightmare threatened our peaceful slumber. As grown-ups, our mothers still shoo away our monsters for us with her soothing caresses and kind words. 5. For Always Lending Their Ears & Laps To Us In Time Of Need © Dharma Productions If there is one person in this whole wide world who would listen to all our crap and never judge us on whatever comes out of our mouth, it is our mother. She is the best listener and guide, and always lends her ears and lap when we most need to find some solace in this maddening world. 6. For Always Keeping Us Well-Fed & Sparkling Clean Can we argue with this one? We always seem under-nourished to our mothers, who seem to find immense joy in (over)feeding us to their heart's content. What's more, we owe all our sparkling and well-done laundry to her. 7. For Convincing Our Dad On Multiple Occasions © Rajkumar Hirani Films Well, we have all been there and didn't have enough hugs to make up for all the times she faced the heat of convincing our dads to get us something or allow us to be somewhere. She has done this so many times over the years, it seems like the most normal thing now. 8. For Staying Up Late Just To Check On Us No matter how many times we told them to go to bed, our moms wait on us when we are out working late or partying with our friends. She wouldn't retire to bed until she made sure her kid is back home safe and sound. 9. For Sticking Up For Us At All Times © Dharma Productions No matter the innumerable times we have had to live through the chappal-belan beatings from our mothers, they will turn into our most fierce protectors and advocates in times of need. 10. For Believing In Us & Our Dreams Whenever we stopped believing in ourselves or gave up on our dreams, our moms helped us rebuild that faith in ourselves and our dreams. We might stop believing, but they would never do that. For all this and much more, thank you, Ma.
  9. The OnePlus 7 Pro already sounds like the perfect smartphone ever by the Chinese company as its launch is scheduled for next week. OnePlus has now confirmed that the OnePlus 7 Pro will have an HDR10+ display in addition to the 90Hz refresh rate on the panel. The display on the OnePlus 7 Pro has already been awarded an A+ grade by DisplayMate however, the inclusion of HDR10 takes the smartphone even further. © Twitter Currently, only the Galaxy S10/S10 Plus supports HDR10+ on its screens and the OnePlus 7 Pro will be the second smartphone in India to have support. It is the perfect display for users who love to watch video content on the go. Currently, platforms like Amazon Prime, Netflix and even YouTube have HDR compatible shows which should be supported by the OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus clarified that it's not ready to share OTT partnerships as of now. HDR10+ is known to adjust the contrast and the dynamic range on HDR content. OnePlus says, since “it is an open format, it's license and royalty free and therefore easily adoptable by manufacturers and content producers with quality maintained through an HDR10+ certification and logo program.” © Twitter “HDR10+ is the future of not just television displays, but also smartphone displays as well. We hope that our newest device will set a new benchmark for the smartphone industry and open up a new world of visual fluidity for users. We're glad we are leading the ranks in sharing quality technology with the world.” says OnePlus CEO Pete Lau. © Twitter The launch event for the OnePlus 7 series is scheduled to take place on 14th May and will be held in three cities i.e. New York, London and Bangalore and will start at 8:15 PM IST. According to rumours, the OnePlus 7 Pro is going to have a QHD+ 90 Hz AMOLED display and will be relatively cheaper than flagship devices. The OnePlus 7 Pro is rumoured to have a starting price of Rs 49,999 for 6GB + 128GB model. You can read more about pricing leaks here.
  10. I feel like the pressure on 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is simply increasing by the day, because it's the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to come out after 'Avengers: Endgame'. Imagine you're in a talent competition and you find out you're going after say, Beyonce! And, no, this is not me hating on 'Spider-Man', that's not the case. Just stating a fact. But, we know the movie will do good because people love Tom Holland and his portrayal of Peter Parker. But, since it's coming out so soon after 'Endgame', it is bound to be connected to the movie, especially since Peter Parker is basically Tony Stark's 'ward'. Since it's confirmed that the events of 'Far From Home' take place shortly after the events of 'Endgame', it's not just the movie that will have spoilers for 'Endgame', but the trailer as well. Reportedly, the next trailer for 'Far From Home' - which is expected to drop on 6th May - might contain spoilers about 'Avengers: Endgame'. And, Marvel has reportedly decided to be nice for once and put a spoiler warning before the trailer, and Tom Holland himself will do the honours of that. Apparently, right before the trailer, a clip of Tom Holland will come and warn people about the spoilers. Yes, I see the irony, Tom Holland, the guy infamous for giving spoilers, will give a spoiler warning. 'ENDGAME' SPOILERS AHEAD I think it's safe to assume that 'Far From Home' will have Peter mourning and coping with Tony Stark's death but will they bring that right up in the trailer? Quite possible. Or maybe, the trailer will show that some people at Peter's school are now five years older, since it's not possible that every single one of them disintegrated after 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Side note: How is it possible that all of Peter's friends got disintegrated and then came back? I mean, it was a random selection of half the population but all of them seem to be back and are the same age, while we saw in 'Endgame' that everyone else who didn't turn to dust was five years older now. Is this a possible plot hole? Also, Marvel, please don't show Peter crying because of Tony's death, it'll be too hard to deal with. One more possibility for the 'Endgame' connection in 'Far From Home' is Mysterio's abilities, which include special effects and illusions, so what if he uses Tony, to manipulate Peter? That seems quite possible but it's also so brutal. Whatever it is, we'll just have to wait till Monday to find out. 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' will release on July 2nd.
  11. On Monday, the Indian Army made an interesting claim on their Twitter account that has left the internet divided. The claim was about the discovery of 'mysterious footprints of the mythical beast 'Yeti' '. Yes, they even posted pictures of what looks like the footprints of Yeti, the 'elusive snowman'. According to the post, the Mountaineering Expedition Team of the Indian Army discovered these footprints of the 'Yeti' measuring 32x15 inches, near Nepal's Makalu Base Camp on April 9. For the first time, an #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast 'Yeti' measuring 32x15 inches close to Makalu Base Camp on 09 April 2019. This elusive snowman has only been sighted at Makalu-Barun National Park in the past. pic.twitter.com/AMD4MYIgV7 — ADG PI - INDIAN ARMY (@adgpi) April 29, 2019 Since time immemorial, people have been debating about the existence of the Yeti, a creature that resembles an ape and is found in various folklores and mythological stories. According to some people, the Yeti apparently live in the Himalayas and is quite skilled at hiding its whereabouts and existence. As the never-ending debates continue to trigger people's imagination and perception about the Yeti, the Army has said that they have "photographed and handed over to subject matter experts" the "evidence" for scientific evaluation. According to the Times Of India, the Indian Army held on to the "photographic evidence" about the Abominable Snowman for nearly 10 days, but then decided that they matched the earlier theories. "So, we thought it prudent (to go public) to excite scientific temper and rekindle the interest." Anyway, people on Twitter are not convinced with the Indian Army's claim and they expressed their disapproval in the most hilarious (yet logical) way possible. "Mitroon..ye 'Yeti' pichle 60 saal mein dikha tha kya, main puchta hoon dikha tha kya? Nahin dikha tha na. Aaj 'Yeti' ko humlog dekh rahe hai kyunki Dilli mein majboot sarkar hai. Congress ki sarkar jo kaam 60 saalon mein nahin kar saki, wo humne 60 mahine mein kar dikhaya" pic.twitter.com/nBZYCaCFrn — IRONY MAN (@karanku100) April 30, 2019 This is deeply, deeply embarrassing: whoever in the Indian Army's PR has circulated this is disgracing the institution, and India, in the world's eyes. https://t.co/f11OvolnUb — Praveen Swami (@praveenswami) April 30, 2019 With all due respect to everyone, what we call Yeti is with all probability either the Himalayan Brown Bear or Tibetean Blue Bear. Both are endangered, can grow over 7 feet and are bipedal. The single foot print forms when the bear walks on 4 feet. — Kunal ð®ð³ (@RunMUFC) April 30, 2019 Wun Wun? pic.twitter.com/qYbFJyxQwr — Chowkidar Ankur Singh (@iAnkurSingh) April 29, 2019 Also sighted: a delighted Yeti after being tweeted by the Indian Army pic.twitter.com/YzKSWpLDbV — Sachin Kalbag (@SachinKalbag) April 30, 2019 You mean this guy? pic.twitter.com/odZnKH9m9F — Nymeria (@aloftydirewolf) April 30, 2019 So Yeti has only one foot? — ਪੰà¨à¨¾à¨¬ ਨਾà¨à¨°à¨¿à¨ (@akdwaaz) April 29, 2019 What the hell is wrong with you guys? Just look at those pics for heaven's sake. That's not a bipedal. Couldn't you guys call a single animal expert before posting this ?

  12. OnePlus is all set to unveil its new OnePlus 7 smartphone along with a more premium model, the OnePlus 7 Pro, on May 14. While we are still a couple of weeks away from the launch, the first camera samples from the OnePlus 7 Pro are already out. The folks over at WIRED went hands-on with the phone and shared their experience. The first piece of information to note here is that the OnePlus 7 Pro will be capable of 3x optical zoom functionality. Since optical zoom is a hardware-based zoom solution, you can expect to retain the details even when you're zooming in on the image. Bells and whistles make noise. We make phones. #OnePlus7Prohttps://t.co/ViZaz53XXk pic.twitter.com/wIHg7fd7U4 — OnePlus (@oneplus) April 25, 2019 Optical zoom capability isn't something that we've unheard of. In fact, we already have smartphones like the Huawei P30 Pro that touts 5x and even 10x optical zoom. That being said, it'll be interesting to see what OnePlus has managed to pull off here with the OnePlus 7 Pro. Before we take a look at the camera samples shared online, here's a quick look at some other noteworthy features of the OnePlus 7 Pro's camera - 0.3 seconds or less shutter lag 10x digital zoom support Auto HDR enabled by default “Natural” portrait mode Anyway, here are the camera samples - While speaking to WIRED, OnePlus imaging director Simon Liu said the OnePlus 7 Pro has a shot at competing with the first tier phones. “I don't think we can beat them, but the imaging world is always subjective”, said Liu.
  13. Bollywood is often stated as an example of a place where Darwin's famous phrase “survival of the fittest” finds a level playground for every aspirant with a “Bollywood dream” to try their luck. However, what is also often stated is that it isn't about finding a way into the industry, but more of surviving in it. People don numerous hats to become a part of this star-studded industry, before finally getting the chance to do what they had really set out to do. The same goes for a number of prominent actors in the industry who started out as ADs and writers before finally facing the camera as actors. Today, we list down 5 actors who started their careers as background dancers and are known as prominent actors today. 1. Shahid Kapoor © Instagram Shahid started out as a regular struggling artist in Bollywood despite being Pankaj Kapoor's son. At the beginning of his career, he was seen in numerous advertisements, music videos and even in movies as a background dancer. He was seen in movies such as 'Taal' and 'Dil Toh Pagal Hai' 2. Dia Mirza © Instagram Dia Mirza holds the crown for Miss Asia Pacific 2000, but even she started out as a background dancer in south Indian films. She was seen in the 1999 Tamil film 'En Swasa Kaatre', in a song titled Jhumbalaka. 3. Sushant Singh Rajput © Twitter Before officially stepping into Bollywood as an actor, Sushant Singh Rajput performed as a background dancer as part of Shiamak Davar's dance company. He can be seen in the title track of Hrithik Roshan's 'Dhoom 2'. 4. Daisy Shah © Instagram Remember Salman Khan's film 'Tere Naam'? The one that inspired numerous young men to don Salman's look from the film. Well, the song 'Lagan Lagi' features Daisy Shah shaking a leg with Salman Khan. She was a well-known background dancer before she made her acting debut. 5. Arshad Warsi © Instagram A popular comic actor, he worked as a choreographer in the industry initially. However, he also performed as a background dancer a few times, like in the song titled Help Me from 'Aag Se Khelenge'.
  14. Apple has already launched an updated version of AirPods, however, new reports suggest that another version is all set to launch later this year. The report also suggests some upgrades that have been expected for a while. © MensXP The next-generation of AirPods are said to have active noise cancellation and may launch before the end of this year. The minor update on the new AirPods comes with a new H1 Chip that lets users launch Siri by simply saying 'Hey Siri'. We can be sure that the next-gen AirPods are expected to come with a similar chip. According to the report by Digitimes, sources in supply chain say that the new AirPods will offer a better audio experience for customers who don't mind paying a premium. The new AirPods are not said to replace the current generation of wireless earbuds but may just be another offering in Apple's audio portfolio. © Unsplash If the rumours are true, the new noise-cancelling AirPods will be more expensive than the current models. Active Noise Cancellation feature generally adds to the cost and rivals like the Sony WF-1000X is also priced higher. This is not the first time we've heard about noise-cancelling AirPods as rumours have been floating around for a while. Previous rumours have suggested that the new AirPods will come with heart rate and body temperature tracking along with other health tracking features. Other rumours suggest that the new AirPods will also come in a black variant which we really want to come true. Needless to say, these rumours cannot be verified until the new AirPods are officially launched by Apple. Having said that, the rumours about noise-cancelling AirPods have been consistent with previous reports. Source: Digitime
  15. OnePlus is all set to unveil its new OnePlus 7 series of flagship phones on May 14th. And now, in a typical OnePlus style, the company has started slowly teasing the features, and the first teaser has seemingly confirmed what the rumours have claimed so far. OnePlus posted a 10-second teaser clip on social media that says “bells and whistles make noise.” OnePlus “makes phones.” While the teaser itself doesn't show the full design of either of the phones that are expected to launch, it does confirm that at least of the phones in the series will have three cameras at the back. Here's the teaser - Bells and whistles make noise. We make phones. #OnePlus7Prohttps://t.co/ViZaz53XXk pic.twitter.com/wIHg7fd7U4 — OnePlus (@oneplus) April 25, 2019 The fact that the upcoming OnePlus phone carries a triple-camera setup shouldn't come as a surprise if you've been following the rumors around these new phones. Several trusted sources have provided plenty of information on the same. If the rumors are to be believed, then you can expect at least one of them to be a 48MP sensor, which is said to be paired with an 8MP and a 16MP wide-angle lens. This will be the first time a OnePlus phone will have three cameras, which is very exciting. © Twitter As we've said in the past, OnePlus really needs to fix its cameras. The cameras on the previous OnePlus cameras are not bad, but they're certainly nowhere near the competition. That's pretty much the only thing that's stopping OnePlus' phones from being perfect devices. Well, let's hope it changes this year
  16. Any Marvel fan would agree that end-credit scenes are an integral part of Marvel Cinematic Universe. For over 10 years, we've all sat through really, really long credits, just to get a few seconds of something more. Yes, they have been very important ever since Nick Fury showed up at the end of 'Iron Man' to talk to Tony Stark about the Avengers initiative. Since then, end-credit scenes have been instrumental in connecting 21 movies with each other and building an entire cinematic universe, that even Bollywood is trying to copy now. While not a single true fan would mind sitting for 15 minutes extra, this time we might not have to since it's being reported that 'Avengers: Endgame' will not have any end-credit scene. But tbh, I'm still not getting up from my seat until and unless all the credits are over because I don't trust the internet and of course, Marvel. I was actually a little disappointed after hearing this news at first because well, there won't be an iconic scene like the Earth's mightiest superheroes eating shawarmas after a big fight, but if you think about it, it actually makes sense. We've been calling this movie the end of an era for the longest time and giving the audience a scene about what's next doesn't really fit in well with that. Obviously, as the name suggests, this is the end, the culmination of 21 movies and it is all about finality. This is probably the last time we'll see everyone together and with the end of phase 3 of MCU, an end-credit scene would not really add to the movie in any way. Moreover, 'Endgame' will not just conclude the 'Infinity saga' but will also tie up the loose ends of each and every MCU movie that came before. It's basically like one big story coming to an end and that's why end-credits were crucial as a way to connect it all so effortlessly, but 'Endgame' doesn't have any need for it. So, as much as I have enjoyed all the end-credit scenes, it is perfectly okay for the Russo Brothers to give it a pass this time, because we already know the movie will be incredible in itself and we won't really need to look forward to what's next for some time.
  17. With the ICC World Cup 2019 just a month away, the captain of the Pakistan cricket team, Sarfraz Ahmed, was found making some rather bold statements during a press conference ahead of leaving for England. Considering themselves as the 'underdogs' of the tournament, Ahmed believes that the level of pressure they will be carrying on their shoulders starting their World Cup campaign against the Windies on 31st May 2019, will be manageable. "Look, when we go as favourites, then it's a problem, but if we go as underdogs then other teams feel the danger, so I think being underdogs is good for us and eases the pressure," he said. Eyebrows were raised only when Ahmed mentioned Virat Kohli's Team India in his comments. "For us all nine matches are important so we will take every match as a match against India," said the 31-year-old. "We have beaten India in a bigger event recently so we will have that advantage.” The skipper was referring to their victory in the Champions Trophy final in 2017, in which Ahmed and team dominated the Men in Blue, while winning the match by 180 runs. Pakistan have also won the 1992 World Cup and the 2009 World Twenty20. However, when it comes to the World Cup, India and Pakistan have clashed six times, none of which were won by the perennial rivals of India. As expected, as soon as the statement was made available online, the hardcore fans of the Indian cricket team trolled the wicket-keeper batsman hard and left nothing to the imagination: Meanwhile We INDIANS and INDIAN TEAM be like pic.twitter.com/Cir8KThb1D — Silly Strom (@SillyStrom) April 23, 2019 2017 isko recent lagta hai. — Rahul (Pray for Sri Lankað±ð° ) (@rk5444) April 23, 2019 Looks like he has forgotten the 2 embarrassing defeats against India in Asia cup recently ðð — Abhi Panchal (@iamabhi1909) April 23, 2019 India is 6 - 0 to Pakistan in the World cups, where does this lad live? — ðð ððð®ð¿ðð ðµð²ð¿ð² (@hathnostalgia) April 22, 2019 I don't give a damn what Safaraaz says — Raman Chakrabarty (@RamanChakrabar2) April 23, 2019 Ahmed and his boys will be participating in a three-game warm-up followed by a five-match ODI series and a solitary Twenty20 International with the Englishmen before the World Cup takes place in England and Wales.

  18. Let's start off with a disclaimer - this isn't an article on the lovable breed of dogs, nor does it discuss sporting heavyweights Anthony Joshua and Mike Tyson. That being said, it deals with a staple of every man's wardrobe, so you should still read it. No matter which side of the briefs vs. boxers debate you're on, we believe that both styles warrant a place in your underwear drawer. While the snug fit and reassuring support of briefs is perfect for the man on the go, the comfort and breathability of boxers is the way to go when you're spending a relaxing day at home. When it comes to buying boxers, we don't mean stocking up on the plain styles almost every man owns. Just because your underwear is meant to be hidden away from public view doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice your sense of style in favour of practicality when you go underwear shopping. In fact, there's a whole lot of variety out there that will help you put a fashion forward spin on your undergarments. Our helpful guide will enlighten you on all the available options, enabling you to choose those that suit your style the best. Style 1: The Solids © Shutterstock There's a reason why solid colours are the most common and readily available style when it comes to boxers - you can never go wrong with the classics! The best boxers for men offer not only supreme comfort, but also add a layer of style to your overall look. However, most men tend to build up a collection blacks, whites, and greys, which might get the job done but don't make for very pleasant viewing! Add a dash of colour to your basic and boring collection by giving some brighter hues like reds and blues a try. Style 2: The Patterned © Shutterstock If you're looking for options other than the classic solid colours but don't want to stray too far away from the norm, then you need to explore the world of patterned boxers. Boxers featuring a symmetrical checkered, striped or even polka-dotted pattern are among the best underwear for men out there, because they offer an enhanced visual aesthetic while still retaining the same design fundamentals that make boxers such an important part of any man's wardrobe. Style 3: The Printed © Shutterstock Printed shirts and shorts for men are all the rage right now, but there's no reason for that to be limited to your outer layer of clothing. Even your boxers are available in all sorts of eye-catching variants these days, and the best printed boxers for men can transform the dull task of picking out underwear to a fun one. Not only are there classy micro prints to choose from, you even have the option of going all out and repping your favourite superhero, cartoon character, or sports team, allowing you to express your personal sense of style and splurge on some quirky prints! Style 4: The Material © Shutterstock The fabric your boxers are made of has a huge impact on how comfortable you feel in them, which is why this is such an important decision. Cotton is the most popular choice because it is absorbent, breathable, and widely available, but it's not the only option. Thanks to a lot of innovation and advancements in this department in recent times, a variety of cotton blends and fibres have also entered the fray. One such innovation is a fibre called Modal, which has fast become extremely popular in the underwear industry because it's much softer than regular cotton. As for other materials in vogue, silk boxers are considered the epitome of luxury, while spandex and lycra are also used in some of the variants favoured by men who value coverage but also want a closer fit. Style 5: The Hybrid © Pixabay Combining the close fit and support offered by briefs with the coverage of boxers, boxer briefs are a relatively new entrant in the innerwear game. While they can't technically be classified as either boxers or briefs, the best boxer briefs for men bring together the best features of both styles into one extremely convenient garment that definitely deserves a place in your wardrobe.
  19. Considered to be one of the greatest talents to have ever placed his foot inside the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) ring, Phillip Jack Brooks aka CM Punk made a comeback to pro wrestling five years later since bidding adieu to the business in 2014. However, it was the way in which the former ECW superstar made his comeback to the sport that was unexpected. While a lot of his fans had hoped for the 'Straight-Edge' wrestler's return to wrestling with WWE, Punk decided to make it a smaller affair. To get you on pace with the story, in an MKE Wrestling event called 'The Last Knight' on Friday, a masked man interfered with one of the fights of the evening and hit one of the wrestlers with CM Punk's signature move, the 'Go To Sleep' or the GTS, kneeing him in the head. CM Punk Returned to pro wrestling and this was his big return 𤣠wow ð® CM Punk! CM Punk! #wwe #aew #cmpunk pic.twitter.com/DQc6fR1IvY — Mr. Extra™ï¸ (@WWEMrExtra) April 21, 2019 What made the fans believe that the mystery man want indeed CM Punk was the hoodie he was wearing at the time of the “assault” because earlier in the day, Punk was seen wearing a similar hoodie while attending a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament in the neighbourhood. While the star has neither confirmed nor denied the theory, Wrestling Inc., a well-renowned wrestling news site has shown credibility to it. According to the site, plans were made for Punk to take off his mask after the attack but the star apparently decided otherwise at the last moment. After the self-proclaimed “best in the world” had left Vince McMahon's company in pursuit of a career in MMA he had said that if he were to return to pro wrestling, it would not be on a big stage like WWE of Japan's Ring of Honor (RoH) but a smaller more localised organization. CM Punk is the kind of guy who has the charisma of a champion and a fan following big enough to make any wrestling show draw in major sponsors and make it a big hit. If he is indeed back to the wrestling business, all of us are in for a treat.
  20. General Elections in India can be very entertaining, if you happen to chance upon the right people saying the most absurd things that are nothing short of blasphemous. No matter what our politicians might be good at (such as shirking responsibilities), there are a few things nobody can challenge them on. © Twitter Some of our politicians have such a way with words, that most often their brains simply cannot keep up with all the jackshit spewing out of their mouths like diarrhoea. The end result is a bucketful of gunk and brain droppings that deserve no better place than in the back alley gutters. © Pinterest While some leading politicos have already been banned from campaigning for a limited time period by the Election Commission of India, due to their remarks, others have also drawn heavy flak from the public as well as rival parties. Check out these profane statements made by 10 politicians since the 2019 General Elections began. 1. Maneka Gandhi (BJP) © Twitter 2. Azam Khan (SP) © Twitter 3. Yogi Adityanath (BJP) © Twitter 4.

  21. The Time's list of Most Influential People)is out and obviously, there are a few Indians who're making the country proud by being among so many incredible people from all over the world. Last year, Deepika Padukone, Virat Kohli, Ola co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal, and Microsoft's Indian-born CEO Satya Nadella were named in the list and it was great to see so. This year, Mukesh Ambani and lawyers Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy, who quashed Section 377, have made it to the list. Along with them, Indian-American comedian and TV host Hasan Minhaj is also part of the 100 Most Influential People. Anand Mahindra took charge of writing about Mukesh Ambani) and had nothing but praises for the business tycoon. He talked about Dhirubhai Ambani, Jio, and how Mukesh Ambani did keep all the promises he made. He said, “Mukesh Ambani's father Dhirubhai was a visionary in Indian business, whose Reliance Industries conglomerate pioneered ways of targeting global scale. But Ambani's vision is now even more ambitious than that of the father whose blessings he unfailingly invokes at the launch of each initiative. The scale of his Reliance Jio mobile-data network, which has already connected over 280 million people in India with low-cost 4G, is impressive by any standard. But what is truly jaw-dropping is the way it will allow Reliance to potentially dominate a staggering array of new businesses. When its enormous retail division is married to the Jio network for e-commerce, it will give Amazon a run for its money. When the media entities Ambani owns begin leveraging Jio, he could create India's default entertainment destination. The mind boggles at the possibilities.” Lastly, he said, “Back in 2003, Ambani promised Indians in a well-known advertising tagline that his company would “put the world in the palm of your hand.” It won't be long before he delivers on that promise.” Coming to Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy, the badass lawyers responsible for the decriminalisation of homosexuality and quashing 157-year-old Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. Writing about them and praising them was none other than Priyanka Chopra. She said, “'I am what I am so take me as I am,' said the Chief Justice of India as the Supreme Court struck down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code in a unanimous vote. An outdated legacy of the British colonization of India, Section 377 rendered all sexual activities “against the order of nature” punishable by law. This landmark judgment, overturning a 157-year-old law, was the outcome of a long-term campaign orchestrated by two amazing public-interest litigators, Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy. The fight has been hard. The LGBTQ+ community has battled on both legal and social fronts for decades-—for their fundamental rights, for privacy, for dignity, for safety and for love.” She went on, “Armed with a well-planned strategy that went beyond their well-researched legal arguments, Arundhati and Menaka became beacons of hope for the Indian LGBTQ+ community. Their perseverance and commitment led an entire community to a historic win by humanizing their struggles and giving them the freedom to love. As the Chief Justice said, “Constitutional morality cannot be martyred at the altar of social morality.” Arundhati and Menaka have helped take a giant step for LGBTQ rights in the world's largest democracy. In their committed fight for justice, they have shown us that we as a society must continue to make progress, even after laws are changed, and that we must make an effort to understand, accept and love. It is who we are as people.
  22. We're only half way through April and already sweating like a pig in the scorching heat, but for some people 'winter is here'. A winter that includes lots of dragons, swords, *** and brutal deaths. © HBO Just like most people, I too was waiting for 'Game of Thrones' final season to air. Not because I am a die-hard fan or something, but to laugh at memes and jokes that will probably make no sense to me, and yet are damn funny. Also, because I am done with the barrage of tweets and posts on my timeline, talking about the Starks, Lannisters, Jon Snow, betrayals, reunions, and the White Walkers. © HBO Yesterday, when I walked into my office, everyone was busy discussing the first episode of season 8. My friends stared at me in disgust that how can someone not watch GOT. I could hear the bells ringing and people shouting 'Shame' in the background. But, at least I had a good sleep since I didn't wake up at 6:30 AM to watch the episode. Plus, I can check social media to my heart's content, without worrying about spoilers and send spoilers to people I hate. Sadly, the GOT fandom couldn't infect me at all. How I'll sleep tonight knowing I've never seen an episode of Game of Thrones pic.twitter.com/tQXpXnnwrj — Ryan Schocket (@RyanSchocket) April 15, 2019 Honestly, I have never really understood the hype around the show. I won't lie, at one point I did give in to the cultural pressure of missing out on something more important than 'global issues'. I tried watching an episode (actually I was forced by my colleagues who probably run a GOT fan club), but I just couldn't sit through it. Not even for Priyanka Chopra's 'devrani ji'. © HBO But, what I did understand was that I am not the only one who has never watched 'Game of Thrones'. There are people like me who have never seen the show and probably never will, and neither do they care about who sits on the throne. AND looks like the society HAS accepted people like us. by not watching game of thrones did i miss out on a big cultural moment? probably - but none of you guys listen to enough jazz so whatever — Natalie Weiner (@natalieweiner) April 14, 2019 Ever since HBO confirmed the final season, internet is divided between those who watch it, and those who troll people for not watching it. If you haven't already noticed, tired of the GOT spoilers and hashtags, people started posting 'I don't watch Game of Thrones'. you guys really fucking love game of thrones. which is great. it is great to love things.

Also, I don't care if you don't watch Game of Thrones. You don't have to remind us how you've never watched it. There is no medal that comes with your non-watching. Thank you. — Awesomely Luvvie (@Luvvie) April 9, 2019 The so-called 1% woke people that don't watch #Got .I just wanna say Valar Morghulis . #GameofThrones #GameofThrones #Got #GOT8 pic.twitter.com/2amjnm4pQZ — OIM|Only in Mzansi (@OnlyInMzansi) April 15, 2019 “Ew, I don't watch #GameOfThrones, I have a life. Everyone tweeting about GoT is SO ANNOYING.” You tweet about The Bachelor, sit down Denise. — SleepyRebs (@TheSleepyRebel) April 15, 2019 We (and here I speak on behalf of all those who don't watch the show) don't judge you for watching GOT, so neither should you judge us for not watching it. I mean, someday we might have our own GOT moment and go batshit crazy over a show, but after seven seasons and S8: Episode 1, we can say it's not going to happen with this one.
  23. We've seen quite a few impressive smartphones launched in the past; however, one of the most anticipated smartphones is around the corner. The leaks so far suggest a radical new design for the OnePlus 7 and if the leaks are correct, we will probably see at least two different models from the Chinese company. Just like every forthcoming OnePlus launch, the smartphone gets leaked and we get to know almost every specification possible.

The rumours suggest that the OnePlus 7 will have a popup selfie camera similar to what we have seen in Vivo devices. The move comes to provide a seamless bezel-less experience on the smartphone. © Weibo Last week, new leak surfaced that suggests that there will be another OnePlus 7 device that will come with the X50 model for 5G connectivity. The device is said to be called the OnePlus 7 Pro and you can read all about it here. The OnePlus 7 Pro is also expected to have 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage if this leak turns out to be true. Previous reports have suggested that the smartphone will have a triple camera set up at the back and a sliding or pop-up selfie camera. The latest leak about the OnePlus 7 is to do with its launch date. According to tipster Ishan Aggarwal, the OnePlus 7 launch date is going to be May 14th, in China. We can expect the device to launch in India soon after. Having said that, the source does have a great track record when it comes to leaks but we suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt for now.
