  1. Big B might be 76, but that clearly doesn't stop him from constantly one-upping the younger crop of actor-fashionistas. His style game has always been young and vibrant, and even now, he sometimes steps out wearing pieces that are headline-worthy. The latest example? A pair of super fancy velvet moccasins he wore to witness daughter Shweta set fire to the ramp. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Mr Bachchan wore a statement kurta with a relaxed white pyjama. However, as basic as the overall attire seems to be, he had planned the ultimate footwear game that would elevate the seemingly subtle ensemble. The royal amaranth-purple velvet moccasins are super fancy on their own, add to them the conspicuous AF golden tassels, and we get a pair that beats 'em all. © Viral Bhayani We love the ivory and blue kurta, mainly because of how unusual it is in terms of the print. Mr Bachchan made a well-calculated fashion move by keeping the trousers plain and relaxed, lest it gets OTT, which it totally did not. © Viral Bhayani While we love the look, along with the minimal accessory game (did you notice the elegant ring with the blue stone?), we still can't get over those badass royal shoes! © Viral Bhayani Kudos, Sir!
  2. Just when I thought Facebook was done screwing up its user's privacy, a new report just popped up saying that Facebook's employees had access to hundreds of millions of user passwords. Good job, Facebook! Yesterday, when an independent security journalist named Brian Krebs reported about this mistake, Facebook issued a press release to confirm the same and said it discovered the mishap during a “routine security review in January.” Here's the best part - The press release was titled “Keeping Passwords Secure”. LOL! © Reuters Krebs' report noted that anywhere between 200 to 600 million people are affected due to this mistake, which shouldn't have happened in the first place. In fact, it looks like some passwords were found in archives dating back to 2012. The social media site estimates that hundreds of millions of Facebook Lite users, tens of millions of other Facebook users, and tens of thousands of Instagram users. Looks like the issue has been fixed and it will notify everyone affected. © Pexels According to Facebook, there's no evidence that plain text passwords were exposed outside of the company, neither were they abused internally. So, it says even the affected users don't necessarily need to change their passwords, but I'd still change it if I were you. I am sure you know that this isn't the first security breach that Facebook and its users are dealing with. All we've been hearing about is Facebook and it's privacy issues. It all started with the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and it's just been a string of bad security issues. People even started dumping Facebook, which I once wondered was the right thing to do. But now, I have some serious trust issues and I wonder if it's time to dump the platform for real.
  3. Travelling is said to inspire those who indulge in it. It is also said to open newer horizons for those who look beyond all that meets the eye. So when Ixigo co-founders Aloke Bajpai and Rajnish Kumar set out to discover their professional journey in the scenic locales of South France, their explorations reached beyond the journey to and fro from work, and the hidden gems around the area. © MensXP By the end of it, they ended up discovering more of Europe than the Europeans themselves, and as time passed them by in the flat they shared together in France, they decided to work out a way that would bring them closer to their dream, and most of all job satisfaction. Aloke and Rajnish finally made the move in 2007 and founded Ixigo, one of India's leading travel marketplaces, that has changed how India experiences travel around the country and beyond its borders. It quickly became the first stop for travellers whenever they thought of travelling anywhere on the face of this earth. © MensXP However, apart from helping their users with travel bookings and solving their travel related queries, there is another crucial factor that motivates Aloke and Rajnish to keep pushing and stay on their toes all the time. It is the ever changing space of data and analytics of the travel industry, which plays a vital role in their survival. Talking about the same Rajnish said to MensXP, “data is the oil in this economy. Without data, none of our AI algorithms will work.” © MensXP Ixigo does about 200 million train PNR status checks in a month, and that says a lot about the kind of needs they cater to on a day-to-day basis. People wish to find out if they will get a confirmed seat on the day of their travel, before booking a waitlisted seat. With Ixigo's advanced approach, they can now get an idea of confirmation before booking and save themselves from last minute craziness. Similarly, they meticulously keep track of fare hikes and dips, and share insights with their users, to help them save precious money. It's a tricky thing to do, preventing business transactions on their portal but they are not after that at all. They are looking at earning people's trust and that's their sole purpose, because the rest falls into place afterwards. © MensXP The company thrives on trust, and virality of the benefits their users reap by making use of their services. They work around creating better tools to help users with their experience both on the app and the bookings they make through them. Even their team comprises of handpicked individuals who share the founders' vision and zest to make Ixigo a user-friendly and top-end product. © MensXP So when it comes to sharing their greatest learning from the journey so far, they have these words of wisdom to share with aspiring entrepreneurs. “Dream big, and have faith in yourself. Don't give up on your dream because of present constraints, but take the plunge regardless”, share Aloke and Rajnish. “Finding the right co-founder is also key when it comes to taking the first step and building a team that believes in your dream and vision, just as much as you, that's half the job done”, adds Rajnish. Ixigo has come a long way, and we know these two friends will continue to make travelling even easier and better in the time to come.
  4. If you're already sealing your future right now, I am sure you've decided what you really want. It's rather simple to foresee something but a tad difficult to live by the facts of it. What I mean is, if you're building your future, you obviously want financial security, a family, a good house and everything else that adult life needs for you to sustain and be happy all at once. But apart from all that, there are a few things that need vital attention more than anything else. There are certain parameters you should cross while deciding a future and it's okay to delve into them from time to time. © Twitter If having kids is on your agenda, then you already know how many you'd like to have and what kind of value system you'd instil within them. But the most crucial thing to think about is what kind of a father will you be. Being a father is the most important role you can ever don and if you're certain of being a father and raising good kids, then you have to be sure about the qualities you possess to make you someone your kids look up to. Here are 3 main qualities every man should have to be a good father: (1) He Is Protective While the sense of protection for the next of kin is innate, it's a quality not all men possess. Being protective is, of course, inherited with the association you have with people. Most men are very protective of their friends, especially women friends. Not because they like them but because they treat them as someone they need to protect. It's not just women but he takes care of everyone he is close to and that is one quality that transcends and reflects in his association with his kids. He will always set boundaries for them and protect them from anything and everything. © Pintrest (2) He Is Trustworthy That may sound ambiguous but most men, you can trust with your eyes closed, make for good fathers. That's because he will never turn his back on anyone, especially family, when in time of need. If you're the kind of guy who has stuck through the toughest times and been there for your friends and family, then be assured you'll do the same with your future family too. © Pintrest (3) He Is Patient & Encouraging If you've always been a source of encouragement for your friends and family, at any given point in time, you're definitely going to do the same for your kids too. Be it a football match or a test of some form, you'll always be there encouraging them and that's what children need the most. Apart from encouragement, children also need a lot of patience. There are very few men who're good listeners and are patient at the same time. If you spend time listening to someone's problems and give them advice patiently, you're already on your way to becoming a good dad. © Pintrest Apart from these three qualities, of course, men have to be sensitive enough to perceive a child's mind and also take steps to become an affluent teacher in their lives. So, if you're looking to become a good father, start fostering these qualities and try them out on your friends and family, because only if you have them now, you'll be able to impart them to your children in the future.
  5. Have you ever witnessed a fashion show IRL or on TV/social media and wondered who these elaborate designs were meant to target, or why these shows are all filled with seemingly unwearable clothes which would not work in real life at all? © Studio picsing But here's the thing, everyday fast fashion brands like H&M, Zara, Nike or any other mass-market brands will never showcase something like that in their stores or campaign about it. We are talking about high, creative fashion labels here, created by designers and marketed off as luxury goods and de rigueur fashion. But realistically speaking, obviously, every label and every designer intends to sell what they're making. No fashion house can survive if it were only manufacturing unwearable clothes, considering the kind of budget and effort it takes to organise a show. So, you should calculate by now that these ridiculous pieces seen on the runway will never end up in boutiques or department stores of the label. So, how does the production of bizarre clothes add up? Firstly, not every label plays the game of exhibiting dramatic theatrics. Most labels don't even throw individual shows. A singular example of a show being thrown individually by a label is Shantanu & Nikhil. Most fashion houses can't even afford a runway and are limited to a showroom they open during the Fashion Week. © Studio picsing But for the labels who do have a runway, a lot of them organise to the mark Prêt-à-Porter collection, (i.e ready-to-wear, clothes that can be bought right off the rack). For example, for LMIFW, there was a separate exhibition area for buyers to access and cherrypick the clothes that they like. But coming to clothes that are designed in a fashion incomprehensible by many, we're talking huge sleeves or alternatively narrow skirts that cinch the knees that would restrict function, or ginormous hats etcetera. Fashion is not only about looking pretty and staying up to date with trends, but it is also art, just like any other major streams like literature. Think of it this way, your go-to work wear or a plain white tee are not fleshed out enough to be turned into powerful artistic exhibits. A great analogy would be the kind of things you see in the museum of modern art. Aside from the paintings, most structures and moulds are not intended to be bought and displayed in homes because that's not practical or long-lasting to that effect, considering how fragile some of these pieces might be. Secondly, runway shows have to have elements and themes that send across the message that label wants its audience to know, to that effect, they introduce props, background music, graphics and sometimes even fantastical elements to put the theme across. Think of a runway sans these elements, people who go to the fashion week sometimes have to sit through six to eight or more a day, and if there is no unique individuality to each label, these shows might be bland for the spectators. Labels for that reason also, curate a theme that sets the tone and creates a vibe for shows in order for them to stand out. For example, LMIFW saw Prashant Verma's musical runway in which he too participated in the way of singing Harold Arlen's classic 'Over the Rainbow' while women of all ages received an 'Oscar' in their Victorian-esque grand tulle and satin gowns. © fdci Which brings me to my third point, taking Prashant Verma's A/W19 runway into consideration, sometimes through their clothes and the runway, designers sometimes set out to make a statement. Prashant Verma's show, called the 'Miracle Show' could be interpreted in many ways of which one could projecting the walk of life in five minutes on a runway or the struggles that people face in life and that each struggle deserves an award for it. Sometimes, shows shouldn't be taken at face value and should be considered "l'art pour l'art", a French slogan which translates to 'art for art's sake'. Realistically speaking, these shows do, however, render the label with publicity and media coverage on a level that otherwise improves the visibility of a label and works well for the designer profitably that way too. © fdci Lastly, a lot of times the overly dramatic runway pieces are made subtle and more realistic for the racks. The runway piece is an exaggeration of a trend that the label might want to incorporate in their own collection. By making the motives clear far and wide, the simmered down versions of the collection are obviously made wearable for the buyers. So, to answer your question, you will probably not spot runway pieces on the street, especially ones that restrict any kind of movement unless it's an exhibit, in which case, so is the runway in more ways than one.
  6. Ever since the teaser of 'Kalank' was dropped, Varun Dhawan has been in the news for his super intense role as 'Zafar The Bullfighter'. With never-before-seen intensity, Varun's appearance in the trailer gave viewers all the 'Bahubali' feels during the bull-fight sequence, however, there is one more reason why fans have been super curious about Varun since the past few days. When he stepped out in a super classy ivory Manish Malhotra sherwani, all eyes went behind his left ear, because there was a brand new tattoo there. Take a look. © Instagram/Varundvn He got a number tattooed - '24'. Now, we too were perplexed to begin with, about what it means, just like you probably are right now. © Viral Bhayani We eavesdropped on the gossip mills, but to no avail. While some claimed that this is the date on which he'll get married, others quipped that a major movie is about to release on this date. But we know that 'Kalank' is releasing on April 19th, and it just didn't make sense. Plus, there has been no announcement about a wedding, yet. Right, Ms Dalal? © Instagram/Varundvn 24 is not his age as well (he's 31 already). After a lot of thinking, the only conclusion we could draw was that it's his birthday. Varun's birthday is on 24th April. But, isn't is a little, err, random? Well, we tried to find an answer and this is the best we could come up with. © Viral Bhayani` We're not giving up yet and are soon going to solve the mystery. Unless Varun reads this and decides to tell us himself. Are you reading, Varun?
  7. Bollywood is no more a door which opens only for Indians and 'desis' residing outside thriving on K3G and Rajshri Productions movies. Bollywood has crossed borders and broken cultural barriers for India in many countries and lately, China's intriguing affair with Hindi movies has only grown with time, and here are 5 movies which have helped in the process : 1. Dangal Aamir Khan enjoys a special place in the hearts of the Chinese audience and is already a household name in the country. China's first introduction with Khan's talent was back in 2001 when 'Lagan' was released there. The appetite wasn't much back then but now, he is clearly a famous name. His portrayal of a determined father giving it his all to train his daughters for wrestling is something that the audience loved. 2. Padman Akshay Kumar is another actor who enjoys great popularity in China. The audience there fell in love with the entrepreneur's dedication to his wife in the movie, which led to a life-altering moment for women in rural sectors. 3. Secret Superstar Aamir is clearly like royalty in China and all his movies end up on the 'must-watch' list eventually. This was one which also touched the hearts of the Chinese audience with a simple story of a girl harbouring big dreams. 4. Bajrangi Bhaijaan Let's just say even China couldn't resist the magic of Salman Khan ( that's not us but the data that claims how his movies are blockbusters). This movie ended up making over 238 million Yuan in China. 5. Hindi Medium You might wonder why a story of an urban couple running around the circles of society to get their son admitted in a desirable school struck a chord with the Chinese audience. The thing is that the dilemma of parents trapped in an urban set up with limited resources had a universal appeal. So the subject was what made the movie work well in China. Following suit is Ayushmann Khurrana's 'Andhadhun' which is now all set to release in China as 'Piano Man'.
  8. The original 'Doom' movie that came out in 2005 failed to put up a good show. Both 'Doom' fans and the critics hated it despite having a good cast like Karl Urban, Rosamund Pike, The Rock, and more. Since the original movie turned out to be a hot mess, we're now being hit with a new one called 'Doom: Annihilation', which is slated to arrive this fall. © YouTube 'Doom: Annihilation', as we know it, is a direct-to-video adaptation of the Doom video game franchise. It's being produced by Universal 1440 Entertainment, a division of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Well, the first trailer of the movie just hit the internet yesterday, and it looks like the original developers of the game aren't really impressed. Here's the trailer if you haven't watched it yet - In all fairness, it's too early to judge a movie prematurely with just a trailer, but it doesn't seem to invoke any excitement whatsoever. In fact, when someone asked the developers of the original game 'id Software' about the trailer, they quickly disowned. Here, check it out - We're not involved with the movie. https://t.co/Du3wHSHk44 — DOOM (@DOOM) March 11, 2019 Well, let's just hope that the movie will be much more intriguing and action-packed than the trailer itself. 'Doom: Annihilation' is written and directed by Tony Giglio, and it stars Amy Manson, Dominic Mafham, Luke Allen-Gale and Nina Bergman.
  9. Huawei debuted the Watch GT back in October last year alongside its Mate 20 series of smartphones. The company took its time, but the watch has finally been launched in India today. The new Huawei Watch GT Sports edition is priced at Rs 15,990 and the Classic edition is priced at 16,990. It'll be available for purchase via Amazon India starting March 19. The Huawei Watch GT sports a 1.39-inch OLED touch screen with a resolution of 454x454 pixels. The watch has a 46.5mm round dial and it has a stainless-steel body, available in black or metal finishes. It also comes with interchangeable straps and is also water resistant up to 50 meters. © YouTube Moving on to the software, the Watch GT runs on Huawei's proprietary software called LightOS. Only time will tell if it's better than Google's WearOS, but Huawei says the watch can deliver up to 2 weeks of battery life. Yes, Huawei says that you can go up to 2 weeks on a single charge, and should take you roughly about 2 hours to top up the battery. Huawei has also packed the watch with some fitness-centric features such as constant heart-rate monitoring, sleep-tracking and more. The Watch GT has GPS, and it will take advantage of technologies like TruSeen 3.0 heart rate monitoring and TruSleep 2.0 to give you accurate measurements. In addition to the fitness-focused features, you obviously get the basic smartwatch features like the ability to check notifications of messages, calls, reminders, and alarms. The Huawei Watch GT also comes with an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, ambient light sensor, and more. © Huawei The Watch GT supports Bluetooth v4.2 and NFC, however, it lacks the Wi-Fi support. It packs 16MB RAM and 128MB ROM, and it's compatible with smartphones running Android 4.4 or later or iOS 9.0 or later. You can pick up the Huawei Watch GT with either a leather or a silicone strap in a bunch of different colours.
  10. Indian men have gone through layers of conditioning before they finally fell into a layer that made them the men they are today. As vague as that statement sounds, it holds true for an India post the #MeToo movement. Every man I meet nowadays is either talking about how to respect women better or be their 'knight in shining armour'. Truth be told, women don't really need a knight in shining armour as much as they need equality from their men. Be it their partners, they're subordinates, they're mentors, teachers, colleagues, or even their boss, women seek equality in terms of varying thought processes and of course actions. (c)Twitter While delving further into this, I came across research hosted by a popular dating app called OkCupid, talking about how men have evolved in the way they submit to their thoughts and actions in society and how perspectives have truly changed where they're concerned. The research throws light on a gentle evolution of how, post the #MeToo movement, men have a fair insight into a woman's perpetual struggle in society and helping them link ties and making things equal is something they're honouring more and more every day. Here are 3 things that have evolved for men post the #MeToo movement and we hope this Women's Day, all women realise they're not alone: (1) A Blunt Understanding Of Feminism There are, and there always will be a few men, who either don't care about feminism, are indifferent towards it, or who completely disagree with it. But there are also a lot of them who're changing their perspective on what feminism is essentially and have supported the cause as much as they're supporting the movement. Apart from subjective connotations for feminism, almost 87% of men believe feminism is 'equality between both the genders'. This perspective has helped enhance the solemn trajectory of how women are treated in certain spaces by the male population and it's certainly an improvement. (c)Twitter (2) Being House Husbands & Homemakers A lot of men, about 88% of them, according to research by the app, are offering to share equal responsibilities with the women, around the house. Be it cleaning or cooking or even taking care of the kids, men are more acceptable about changing roles and taking up something more or equally challenging. A lot of men have taken up to being 'house husbands' if their wives are in successful jobs, which demand long hours from them. This phenomenal acceptance in running the household along with the woman is a welcoming change for sure. (c)Eros International (3) Men Stand-Up For Work Place Harassment About 86% of the population is very much against workplace harassment. Since #MeToo had a big part to play in overall sexual harassment, men became more wary and sensitive about it, especially at places where they'd spend the maximum number of hours. A more vigilant and tolerant attitude was donned by most men around harassment in general and if they're the true watchdogs and a beacon of hope for maintaining peace and security, women shouldn't have much to worry about, especially at workplaces. (c)Pintrest These evolving attitude changes donned by most men is a defining strength for our democracy. With about 81% of the men coming forward in support of the #MeToo movement, we've seen the evolutionary balance become a lot steadier and men become a lot more understanding and tolerant. So, if you're a man and you're reading this article, maybe realise that your own brothers around you are wilfully looking for a change and change is happening, according to this research. So, maybe try and partake in this positive change and build a safe, happy and just society, together.
  11. Yes, you heard that right. Last night, we heard a bit of good news after a long, long time. Remember the Jonas Brothers from Disney? © Jonas Brothers Instagram Or Burnin' Up sparking high school memories for you? © Jonas Brothers Instagram The three brothers, Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Nick Jonas formed the Jonas Brothers in 2005, got a deal with Disney and featured in their show called Jonas and further went on to act in other Disney ventures like Camp Rock in 2008. © Jonas Brothers Instagram Last night, among the Jonas family, Priyanka Chopra Jonas was the first to announce her husband's comeback. Take a look. View this post on Instagram And yes they're back…and may I say… hotter than ever. So proud of the family #Sucker #JonasBrothers #MidnightET A post shared by Priyanka Chopra Jonas (@priyankachopra) on Feb 28, 2019 at 7:00am PST Now, firstly look at that. Everything is spectacular about this cover art. From Nick's pretty pink pants to Joe's baby blue flowery co-ord set and Kevin's psychedelic salmon shirt and pants. The design is spectacular and represents the style of the millennial man. A man not bound by the gendered boundaries of fashion. These men have arrived and they're fierce. In other news, the video for 'Sucker' just dropped. The over the top, fun three-minute twenty-second video features the boys' IRL love interests Danielle Jonas, Priyanka Chopra, and Sophie Turner and it can't get better than this. And look at their smashing outfits from the video. © Jonas Brothers Instagram Kevin is in a sparkly dress suit that we adore. © Jonas Brothers Instagram Joe looks spiffy in an all-black tux © Jonas Brothers Instagram And, Nick chose a bright red vest with co-ordinated pants The Jonas Brothers are back for good, it seems. We can't wait to see what they do next!
  12. If you have a beer belly bulge that you're not very proud of, then you've come to the right place. The annoying commute of everyday life might leave you with no time to work out and take care of yourself. This means you might end up with racoon eyes and a particular bulge that you're not very proud of. While long term solutions might range from taking care of yourself, your skin and adopting a healthy work out sesh, the short term solution is simple, which is to dress in a way that completely hides the bulge. Here's how you can do that. 1. The Posture Matters © livestrong Firstly, before we start telling you what to wear and what to avoid, you need to get your body posture right because that greatly impacts the visibility of your bulges. So nix crouching and slouching like a couch potato and start sitting up straight and standing upright. 2. Nix Tight Fitted Clothes © manhoodtv If you've gained weight recently, it possibly also means you've outgrown your current size that you wear in clothes which means you should nix wearing tight fitted clothing. It's time to get your sizes right and wear the right size that helps hide the belly. So avoid wearing those tight tees that highlight your belly or tees and that lift from the back when you sit or bend and display your handles. It's really that simple. 3. Nix Extremely Loose-Fitted Clothes Also © Getty images At the same time, you don't want to wear extremely loose fitted clothes also. These can be counterproductive in the sense that they exaggerate body fat instead of hiding it. It's very important to get measured and stick to your size. 4. Stop Believing In Myths About Belly Fat © Getty images You can pull off anything as long as it suits your body. It's a myth that light colours won't suit you. If you get the right size of these colours and combine it with a fitted counterpart, they will definitely work. For example, a light blue shirt would work for you if you pair fitted trousers with it. However, if either of the sizes is off, the pair can be counterproductive. 5. Always Choose Mid-Rise © Getty images When buying trousers, choose mid-rise that fits well around your navel. This will attempt to conceal your belly fat by pressing it in. 6. Layering Helps © Getty images You must've heard this one before but layering is a really good technique to conceal belly fat. So, a shirt over a t-shirt or a scarf in the Summer work great. In the Winter, choose shrugs, jackets, long coats that streamline your figure and conceal the fat.
  13. Anyone who follows Jim Sarbh on social media, knows very well that this man has his very own, special brand of aesthetic that only he can carry off. His outfits are wonderfully weird, and strangely artistic. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but it sure does exude confidence, charm, and most importantly, originality. He just proved it once again by attending an award ceremony wearing a very special black suit, that we think is the best red carpet outfit we have seen this year. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Here is why we think that this outfit is special. 1. It takes skill to wear a suit without a tie or a bow-tie, and making it look equally fancy. Jim's black Mandarin collar shirt, buttoned all the way up, is doing that effortlessly. © Viral Bhayani 2. When was the last time you saw someone rock high-waisted pants on the red carpet, that too as a part of a suit? The high waist, along with the belt extension from the jacket, is making it look like a runway-ready piece. © Viral Bhayani 3. Usually, tapered pants are always preferred on a red carpet, because it makes you look sharper. But Jim isn't one to follow the beaten track, of course. He chose a super relaxed pair of pants with a magnificent fall, that makes him look like the fashion royalty. © Viral Bhayani 4. Look at the jacket. The collar lapel is one of the most unusual lapels we have ever seen, and there is a belt extension that goes around in layers, and then falls on the side, making it look like a tie-up belt. Surreal, we say. © Viral Bhayani This is what we call effortlessly innovative styling, while keeping it subtle yet classy.
  14. The iPhone is the most selling product every year and the small line-up of phones has a huge market share in the developed markets. Hence, it's no surprise that rumours mills are always churning out something new. The 2019 iPhones are expected to launch in September, but we're already hearing a lot about them. Analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo are known to be highly reliable and have a track record of revealing accurate reports over the past few years. Now, Kuo has released an analyst note that contains his predictions about the upcoming iPhones. The predictions have corroborating reports stating that Apple could announce three new iPhones this year. © Apple According to him, the new iPhones shall have the same screen sizes and the notch isn't going anywhere as well. The iPhone XR successor is expected to get an OLED display, instead of the current LCD. The phones shall also have an upgraded Face ID array, bigger batteries, and a frosted glass casing. Another major update will be a triple rear camera setup on one of the phones. Previous Bloomberg reports have also said that Apple is testing the new camera array, and given the current trends of the market, it makes more sense. Huawei's flagships have been a killer in the segment, and even Samsung has been trying to catch-up. © Imgur The upcoming iPhones are also expected to get an ultra-wideband radio for indoor navigation and bilateral wireless charging. The latter lets you charge other smaller devices wirelessly via your iPhone. This shall come in extremely handy to quickly charge AirPods on the go. In fact, even the AirPods are going to get a successor this year and the AirPods 2 are reported to sport better health tracking, finely tuned audio output, as well as better battery life. Even the much-awaited AirPower charging mat shall be finally coming this year. © Apple Lastly, the new iPhones will continue using the Lightning connector, instead of opting for USB-C. This may be good news for many, but those who already use the new MacBook or iPad Pro know how annoying it can get to carry separate charging wires everywhere. What do you think about the new iPhones? Let us know in the comments section below! Source: 9to5Mac
  15. Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have the best trolling relationship, as they just can't help but pull one over the other, even when they're trying to call a truce. But, there's another bromance involving Ryan Reynolds that doesn't get the appreciation that it so deserves. I'm talking about the 'Deadpool 2' co-stars who made the movie so incredible - Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin. If you follow both of them online, you can see it's pretty clear they both love each other (no homo) and they both are so witty and hilarious, it's great to see how much and just how well they troll each other. So, here's a compilation of Deadpool and Cable being their best selves and giving us major Instagram bromance. Starting with Ryan's birthday wish for Josh from a couple of days ago. View this post on Instagram I know it seems like photoshop, but this really is the happiest moment of his life. Happy Birthday @joshbrolin ð A post shared by Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) on Feb 12, 2019 at 7:18pm PST And, Josh obviously had to bring in Wolverine while saying thank you. Ryan looks so good here. View this post on Instagram Thought you might like some updated training shots from #deadpool2 Check out @joshbrolin on the left... Getting RIPPED. Soon he'll step deep into the soul of CABLE. On the right, you can see me doing some light flexing while being silly in my dressing room. I have a long way to go still. PRO TIP: "Leg Day" is important. But "Smile Day" is essential. A post shared by Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) on Jun 5, 2017 at 3:34pm PDT Josh really matches Ryan's sense of humour perfectly. View this post on Instagram I made a wish come true last night. Ryan has always wanted to do Dancing with the Stars Rome with an incredibly handsome curmudgeon. Well, last night I made his dream a reality. It was good for me too. Deadpool 2 was a difficult process for us: there was a lot of strife between us, a lot of hatred and baggage. We let it go for just a night - one night - and what a night it was. @vancityreynolds @deadpoolmovie #backtoangry #fuckdeadpool #2 A post shared by Josh Brolin (@joshbrolin) on May 5, 2018 at 11:25pm PDT Ryan's last year's birthday wish also deserves a mention. View this post on Instagram Happy Birthday, Bright Eye. You don't taste a day over 40. A post shared by Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) on Feb 12, 2018 at 6:30am PST The grumpy uncle everyone wants. Don't miss out the hashtags tho. View this post on Instagram We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future. #PremiumCABLE #MaximumAsshole A post shared by Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) on Aug 7, 2017 at 8:22am PDT Yes it does, doesn't it? View this post on Instagram The camera really does add 10 pounds. A post shared by Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) on Aug 8, 2017 at 9:30am PDT Thanos joke, nice. View this post on Instagram Cable. Played by the legend, @joshbrolin... And now with over 80 percent less purple chin. #deadpool2 A post shared by Ryan Reynolds (@vancityreynolds) on May 19, 2018 at 12:58pm PDT Not letting go of a chance to take a dig at Ryan, of course. View this post on Instagram Photo shoot yesterday. Felt a little under the weather but it was nice to strap the cable stuff on again. I try to keep in shape year round as opposed to @vancityreynolds who always lets himself go between shoots. My fans demand excellence in me, and here I am giving it to them. ðª@justindlovato Photo: @ultraben235 A post shared by Josh Brolin (@joshbrolin) on Jan 29, 2019 at 11:41am PST Just a thought.

Just a thought. ðâï¸ð¦ A post shared by Josh Brolin (@joshbrolin) on Dec 22, 2018 at 5:38pm PST A masterpiece! View this post on Instagram Some might call this creation a masterpiece, but to me it's just well hung art to be shared with the world.

  16. If you're cued in with what's happening in Bollywood, you'd know Hrithik Roshan's 'Super 30' is releasing in July 2019. The much-awaited Roshan biopic is based on the life of maths genius, Anand Kumar, who runs the famous super 30 program for IIT aspirants in Patna. All the Hrithik fans are truly geared up to watch him play Anand's character. © Viacom18 Motion Pictures The film though has a slight twist of faith, in a good, reckoning way though! The film ran in to trouble recently when director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual misconduct by two women and became a part of the #MeToo movement. Soon after, the makers of the film decided to ask him to leave the project in order to preserve the sanctity of the film. Since then, the movie does not seem to have a director and its release has been delayed. Earlier it was supposed to release on the 25th of January but now it's scheduled to release on the 26th of July. © Twitter As soon as Vikas was shown the exit door, Anurag Kashyap, Vikas's former partner from now dissolved Phantom Films took over the project and is overseeing the post production of the film. In fact, Shibasish Sarkar, group CEO of Reliance Entertainment, revealed that the film will have no directorial credit whatsoever. "Vikas is not associated with the edit and post-production. There will be no director credit for anyone. As a producer, after substantial investment of time, money and the efforts of all our technicians and talent, it is our responsibility to complete the film with the best possible resources available to us. Anurag is a partner, he has edited films of other Phantom partners in the past. He agreed to take this responsibility on Reliance's request, and with a professional and commercial understanding. Also, it has been agreed that he will not take any credit," the CEO told a popular publication. The film is being produced by Reliance Entertainment and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. © Twitter After the #MeToo movement hit Bollywood, a number of celebrities and producers, directors, and musicians were brought into the limelight on grounds of sexual misconduct and harassment. Vikas Bahl being one of them has been accused of the same by two women, one of them being the renowned actress Kangana Ranaut and the makers will think about putting his name back in the credit role if he gets a court order clearing his name out of it. © Viacom 18 Motion Pictueres By all means, the step taken towards maintaining the sanctity of the movement is quite praiseworthy and we hope more people from the film industry take similar steps toward the perpetrators.
  17. Tonight's episode of 'Koffee With Karan' will witness a very hot and good looking duo on the couch stir some freshly brewed coffee for our hearts. Kriti Sanon and Kartik Aaryan will talk about their newfound success, relationships and everything they have in common with none other that Karan Johar himself.

The deepest insecure moment is when you don't have the opportunity but have the drive”, she said. View this post on Instagram Life is all about knowing when to hold on and when to let go. Hold on tight to make sure you have no regrets. And after a point, Just LET GO. To see whether it was actually worth holding on to in the first place! #RandomThoughts #RandomMe ð¦ @graziaindia Feb issue!! ðð» Shot by @rohanshrestha A post shared by Kriti (@kritisanon) on Feb 4, 2019 at 10:45pm PST 3.

Well, for more dope on how they deal with nepotism and what Kartik actually feels for Sara Ali Khan, you need to stay tuned till 9 pm we guess.
  18. There are about 230 new emojis that have just been released and a few special ones stood out for people a little more than others. One was obviously the 'pinching hand' emoji, which we all know stands for symbolizing a tiny dick and it's going to be used by every girl to end any kind of argument with a guy. Unsolicited dick pic community is in a panic rn https://t.co/ScJgOeg19N — dad (@NeptxneDubz) February 5, 2019 Another new emoji that's getting a lot of attention by desi people is the autorickshaw emoji, for obvious reasons, of course. As soon as Indians saw the emoji, they all thought of the same thing - 'no' or 'nahi jaayenge'. â Approved in #emoji12: Auto Rickshaw https://t.co/7x0mQdLnbE pic.twitter.com/CRO8YximMm — Emojipedia ð (@Emojipedia) February 7, 2019 People are taking the pain of getting rejected by autorickshaw-walas and giving the same hilarious reaction to this new emoji.

  19. Unlike the first T20I match at Wellington, the Indian bowling side looked a lot more in control of the game as the important wickets of Tim Seifert and Colin Munro fell quickly. While the newbie went away on a caught-behind after hitting a four and a six, Munro was dismissed by a Rohit Sharma catch off Krunal Pandya. However, what is probably going to be the major point of discussion of the match is the questionable decision given out by the third Umpire, Shaun Haig when batsman Daryl Mitchell asked for a review on an LBW appeal. While the original decision given by the on-field umpire was against the Kiwi, upon review, it was seen that the ball edged the bat before touching Mitchell's pad. However, the Snickometer did not pick up any sound on the ball making a contact with the bat. Drama at Eden Park, Auckland! A lot of questions will be asked of the third umpire Shaun Haig, Hotspot and DRS. Daryl Mitchell must be gutted and confused at the same time. #NZvIND #INDvNZ #TeamIndia #DarylMitchell #KrunalPandya #DRS #Hotspot #T20I — Ameya Tilak (@ameyatilak) February 8, 2019 All these technologies and still can't figure out a clear inside edge. #indvnz #DarylMitchell — Ankit (@ankitchandram) February 8, 2019 This is what probably led to Haig calling a decision in favour of the on-field umpire's original call and gave Mitchell an 'out'. However, the fans, the Kiwi batsmen and even the Indian players seemed to be surprised with the third umpire's final say. Assembling at the centre of the Eden Park, everyone was asking another as to how exactly was the righty batter out. Daryl Mitchell could be seen literally begging in front of the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma and keeper MS Dhoni to advocate his case in front of the umpires and let him continue to bat. Although Sharma smiled at the hapless batsman, it was evidently clear that he wasn't going to help him as he was asked to leave the field. If a bowling team feels that the umpire's decision to send a batsman away was wrong, they have the right to call him back to the pitch. It is not just a rule on paper. It has been exercised by teams on a number of occasions with former skipper Dhoni himself calling back English batsman Ian Bell after getting him for a run-out on a legitimate confusion. So, in such a scenario, should Rohit Sharma have called Mitchell back?
  20. Unless you've been living under a rock, you must have seen or at least heard about every biker's favourite machine, the Royal Enfield. This is no ordinary bike. This sturdy ride is a first choice for many, but more than that it's an emotion of euphoria and zest for life. Now that we have established what a thrill it is to just own a Royal Enfield, imagine the adrenaline rush one would get performing daredevil stunts atop this strong bullet – Exciting isn't it! During the recent Republic Day parade, one brave woman joined the Dare Devil team of the Indian Army who have been performing stunts atop their Royal Enfield Bullet since the last 30 years and holds 24 records. Capt. Shikha Surabhi has never shied away because of fear. She has always owned her fears and braved them with a smile. And this Republic Day, being the only woman daredevil atop the Royal Enfield she made sure that the crowd sat back and took notice of the new face of the fearless women. In an interview with Indiatimes, Capt. Shikha Surabhi revealed her thoughts behind this historic moment and the thrill of riding the Royal Enfield Bullet 350cc. Watch this video and be amazed by her brave spirit.
  21. In the modern era of football, no footballer has managed to match the heroics of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. In a league of their own, the two phenoms have shattered records, claimed almost every honour there is to be won in the sport and continue to enjoy the spotlight for their unmatched skills. But, while the duo has enticed fans with their exploits, there is another man who, time and again, has proved he's not far behind. Brazil's prized possession, Neymar is probably the closest any footballer has come to Ronaldo and Messi. Third highest goal-scorer for his national team (only behind Pele and Ronaldo), the 27-year-old has won over fans with his dribbling, finishing, skill, pace and ability to play with both feet. © Reuters Currently plying his trade in France, Neymar has been a vital cog in Paris Saint-Germain's setup in Ligue 1. But, the recent times have neither been kind to the Brazilian, nor his fans. The PSG forward has been prone to injuries in the last couple of years, and his latest was the second to his fifth metatarsal in the right foot. With the initial threat of being ruled out for the rest of the season, Neymar has been recuperating well with a potential UEFA Champions League quarterfinal second leg a likely target for his return. While his injury has restricted his movements, Neymar remains determined to mark a return as soon as possible. And, his commitment was in full display at his 27th birthday party in Paris. Staying true to the party theme, Neymar was seen sporting a red blazer and even had red crutches to go with it. But, if his attire had people talking about his fashion sense, Neymar's tearful speech and birthday wish had football fans lauding his commitment to the game. "What I wanted the most as a birthday present today is a new metatarsal. So, I could be on the field fighting and doing what I love the most, which is playing soccer," Neymar said as emotions got the better of him. During his speech, Neymar revealed that he had thought about cancelling the celebration due to his injury, but after talking with friends he decided that it would be best to share a good time with his guests. "It's been very hard to be on crutches all this time. Every athlete knows how hard that is. They are giving me all the strength possible to help me return as soon as possible," said Neymar, who also thanked his PSG teammates for their support. While the PSG forward was slammed and laughed at for his antics at the Russia World Cup, his tearful speech would surely have people respecting his commitment to football.
  22. We don't watch the Super Bowl here in India - I don't think it's even broadcasted here - but it's one of the biggest sporting events in the USA and somehow, also becomes international news. The highlight of this year's Super Bowl, though, was Adam Levine and his nipples. Yep, his nips. © Twitter But, to understand why that's causing so much backlash, we have to remember a Super Bowl halftime show from a few years ago, 15 years to be exact. The infamous show from 2004 featured Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson, and a controversy that is still talked about. During the show, Justin went to remove Janet's corset but accidentally tore off her bra too, exposing her bare breast. What followed was a widespread criticism for Janet Jackson which affected her career tremendously, but Justin Timberlake moved on unscathed. But, the infamous 'Nipplegate' is being talked about again today because well, didn't Adam Levine do the exact same thing, but just intentionally? People are questioning why Janet Jackson's nipples were such a problem when Adam Levine is not being pulled up for the same thing. While offended, people haven't lost their sense of humour and are tweeting sarcastic funny thing. Here's what everyone is saying: Eww, nips. now I have to explain to my children that adam levine has nipples — ziwe (@ziwe) February 4, 2019 Exactly the same. adam levine took off his shirt like an uncle at thanksgiving when kid rock comes on — elijah daniel (@elijahdaniel) February 4, 2019 There were a lot of home decor comparisons as well.

  23. Whether one has played on the Nintendo Switch, PC or Xbox; there's always been a desire to play those games with one's friends on different platforms. This is now set to become a reality for gamers as Microsoft will be adding Xbox Live cross-platform support for Android, iOS and Switch games. © YouTube The news comes from a Microsoft session at the upcoming Game Developers Conference, as it was noticed by Avers that Xbox Live will now be expanding its services to as many as 2 billion devices. Xbox Live on different platforms will have achievements, clubs, friends lists and “more” If this isn't some form of typo this is HUGE NEWS and will change the industry going forward. Xbox Live coming to 2 billion (BILLION) devices with new cross-platform XDK/SDK. #XboxLive #GamePass #Xcloud pic.twitter.com/mjza0JKZRc — Avers (@Avers_G4GMedia) February 2, 2019 Microsoft scheduled a session that will detail plans for the upcoming SDK or “XDK”. Currently, Xbox Live is already available on these platforms, however, the functionality is quite limited. You can use the app to chat with Xbox Live friends or keep tabs on what games they are playing. In games like Minecraft (Microsoft Owned), the app lets you sync your achievements as well. Microsoft has reserved cross-platform support for its own games, however, it looks like the new feature will be expanded to third-party titles. © Microsoft Microsoft is now looking to shift to a strategy of games as a service, which is also in line with a next-generation Xbox, that will exclusively stream games. Other initiatives such as the Xbox Game Pass subscription service may also be available to play on these different devices. It may not matter in the future whether you are playing on a PC, smartphone or the Nintendo Switch. The cross-platform support may be possible thanks to Microsoft's Project xCloud that will let users stream games on any device if this Xbox Live SDK comes into fruition. Microsoft does not plan for cross-platform support on the PlayStation 4 due to Sony's bullish attitude towards cross-play.
  24. Apple has changed the primary charging and data transfer port once, and people weren't so happy about it. While new ports bring in better features, it means we need to buy accompanying cables and this simply adds unnecessary cost to the product. The iPhone initially came with a Dock connector, consisting of a 30 pin port. Then came the Lightning Port, it was psignificantly smaller and had a satisfying click to it. According to recent reports, Apple may soon make a shift to USB-C with the new iPhones. © WikiMedia Yes, the lightning port is more than capable. But a shift to USB-C means a universal port for all gadgets in Apple's portfolio. The MacBook already has it, the new iPad has it, and now the iPhone. You can use the same cable for all the devices in the ecosystem, meaning the cost to acquire these cables 'll l will actually come down over a period of time. Even though USB-C should technically reduce the need of adapters as more and more peripherals support the port out of the box, you have to remember that old iPhone accessories are compatible only with Lightning. Apple chargers sell for roughly US$ 25 (Rs 1,500) for an official cable and replica versions are also available for far less. © Apple Last week, Anand Mahindra tweeted how he needs to buy new cables every time a new Apple product is bought. This issue may soon come to an end once all Apple products are supporting USB-C. The Android world has embraced the port long back, and even budget phones are housing one. Bloomberg also reports that the upcoming iPhone will have a triple camera setup, like some Android counterparts. The third camera will have a more powerful zoom, a higher resolution and a wider field of view than any camera on today's iPhones. © Reuters Going a step further, the 2020 iPhone is reported to have a 3D camera system that can sense distance and measure depth through lasers, improving the iPhone's handling of augmented-reality apps and features. Additionally, the Live Photos feature will mean that it can capture videos that are six seconds long, instead of just three seconds.
  25. If you've ever faced an issue of running out of storage space, you may have invested in a good microSD to cure your woes. However, using a microSD comes with limitations as smartphones can support only a limited amount of storage. In fact, only the Galaxy Note 9 can support an SD card with 512GB of expandable storage, making it the first smartphone to support a total of 1TB storage. However, we all know that internal storage works at least 10 times faster than a memory card and it seems like Samsung is looking to remove this problem altogether. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Samsung is known for making premium smartphones; however, the South Korean company also has a very profitable memory division. The company already dominates the SSD segment for PCs and laptops and the company is now taking the game to the next level for smartphones. Samsung announced that it has started to mass produce a 1TB flash storage chip for smartphones and is going to scale production by the first half of the year. © Samsung “Smartphone enthusiasts will soon be able to enjoy storage capacity comparable to a premium notebook PC, without having to pair their phones with additional memory cards,” Samsung said. Currently, Samsung makes a chip that is capable of holding 512 GB of memory and can be found on the Galaxy Note 9. The new chip is said to add double the amount of memory without ever having to use an external memory card. This new chip is also said to improve performance with faster write and read speeds. Samsung says that the new tech reaches speeds up to 1,000 megabytes per second (MB/s). This roughly translates to transferring a 5GB video file in just five seconds. The new memory chip will also help Samsung smartphone cameras to take better videos with higher resolution and frame rates. © Samsung However, we may not see this new tech on a smartphone just yet as it is still in production and won't be ready in time for the Galaxy S10. However, there is a good chance that Samsung may make a 1TB model of the Galaxy Note 10 if production is scaled in time. This is just pure speculation and there's no way to know right now whether Samsung will implement the new 1TB storage with the Galaxy Note 10.
