  1. Photo: © Twitter (Main Image)Republic TV founder, Arnab Goswami, manages to be part of some or the other controversy all the time. Now, his WhatsApp chats have been leaked where he purportedly suggests that he already knew about India’s plans to conduct airstrikes against Pakistan- in retaliation to the February 2019 Pulwama attack, days before the attack took place. © Twitter Times Now His Whatsapp chats are with former Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) chief executive Partho Dasgupta. The chats created havoc when they went viral on social media. Among many other things, the chats also suggest that Goswami had prior knowledge of major government decisions including the Balakot airstrikes and the scrapping of Article 370. Now, social media is flooded with comments suggesting that he should be arrested for treason and #ArrestArnabTraitor is trending on Twitter. A Twitter user wrote, “The issue is very serious that a Journalist made a discussion on national security where he knows all the matters in prior, how this could have happened in a democratic country? I would surprise about how he acknowledged this information by. Arrest such people.” The issue is very serious that a Journalist made a discussion on national security where he knows all the matters in prior, how this could be happened in democratic country? I would surprise about how he acknowledged this information by. Arrest such people. #ArrestTraitorArnab pic.twitter.com/0FtMcqv1Vc — जय भीम Dr. Prashant Rathor 🇮🇳 (@DrRathor13579) January 21, 2021 Here’s what people have to say about it- Arnab Goswami is a stigma to journalism and to our nation. His sentence "We won like crazy" on 40 Soldiers in pulwama attack and knowing beforehand of Balakot Strike news is 100% sign of Anti-National activities.#ArrestTraitorArnab pic.twitter.com/d6wLtC2Q3Z — Sandip Gopani 🇮🇳 (@sandipGopani_) January 21, 2021The silence of govt speak thousands words of their involvement in Pulwama attack & leaking military information which could have compromised the security of more soldiers deployed in Jammu & Kashmir. For NIA, this is not security threat. #ArrestTraitorArnab pic.twitter.com/iHalztE118 — PUNJABI REVIEW (@punjabireview_) January 21, 2021#ArrestTraitorArnab but also initiate a proper investigation in order to find out and fix all those who acted as traitors against the national security in the recently exposed #ArnabGate episode. #ArrestTraitorArnab pic.twitter.com/jeanBitmX9 — surbhi moury🇪🇺OBC🇪🇺 (@surbhimoury) January 21, 2021Arnab He calls himself Patriot!!!!! Where is the Equality and Justice#ArrestTraitorArnab #ArnabGaddarHai pic.twitter.com/vpjVtpGNlX — Holagunda PFi (@HolagundaP) January 21, 2021Yes the bigger concern is who gave the information to him. Arnab is just the puppet of whom, all know.For what the republic tv is we all know. — Ankit Jain (@AnkitJa81653061) January 21, 2021Seriously bro are you serious It was obvious that something big was going to happen and because these was a large troop movement to the Kashmir and other states people who follow this already knew that something big is on the way. Facts man don't be like congress andbhakt. — Abhishek Verma (@Abhishe99799039) January 21, 2021Gaddar Arnab, How dare you rejoiced martyrdom of our 40 CRPF boys ? You are more brutal and anti Indian than those terrorists.#ArrestTraitorArnab pic.twitter.com/aurNHsrcoz — Naveen Shahi (@Naveen_Kr_Shahi) January 21, 2021Earlier, he managed to get into a controversy with comedian Kunal Kamra. Kunal Kamra is also known to have quite 'heavy feelings' for Mr Goswami (as we all know), and his sentiments for Arnab Goswami never changed. Kunal made sure that he never failed to express his views about Arnab publically and came up with innovative ideas to insult him and entertain the audience. Kunal and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap in Spetember 2020 went to Republic TV’s office to give Arnab Goswami the 'excellence in journalism award'. Both of them went to the studio premises with actual slippers framed and were denied entry inside Republic TV premises. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below!

  2. It has been over four months since PUBG Mobile was banned in India by the Government due to the recent tensions with China. The government banned over 118 apps and games that were owned by Chinese companies including PUBG Mobile. Even though a dedicated game for India is touted to release soon, the game is facing hurdles from the authorities for the relaunch. However, this has not stopped Indian gamers from playing the popular battle-royals game and are still continuing to play the game as if the ban never occurred. © Reuters We tested out the method gamers are using to play the game and so far it is working without any problems. It’s quite simple to get the game working on your Android smartphone since it is an open-source platform. In order to make this method work, you will need a VPN service to take full advantage. © unsplash You need to first download the latest APK file from a third-party source or from PUBG Mobile’s official website. You need to fire up a VPN app from your smartphone for this process to work. You can download any free VPN service from the App Store for this purpose or use premium services such as Surfshark or ExpressVPN. The reason why mention a premium VPN service is because it offers better latency in games. Since games like PUBG Mobile require the lowest ping possible for your bullets to register on enemies and have enough time to react to oncoming attacks, its best to use a quality VPN service for this purpose. After opening a VPN app, set your location to a different country besides India. We recommend using Singapore or Hong Kong as it offers the best latency for competitive games. Download the APK file from PUBG Mobile’s official website or from third-party repositories. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Once you are connected, open the PUBG Mobile APK and let the game download the rest of the package that includes the latest patches. If you experience slow download speeds, you can disconnect from the VPN service midway for a speedy download. Once the download is complete, you can start playing PUBG Mobile normally and even have the ability to login from your social media account. If for some reason you cannot connect to the servers, we recommend turning on the VPN again, connect to a different country and restart the game. You should be able to play the game like always without any error messages. You can also apply this method for other banned games such as Arena of Valor, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and other games that have been banned in India. View the full article
  3. Ever since this pandemic, I have been thinking about setting up my own server at home for storing my image, video and audio backups that I can access on any device. While Google Drive has served me well in the past, I am now running out of storage space for images and videos that I shoot for work. I also have a massive DVD collection that I have converted to digital files which I need access to from to time. Now that DVD players are non-existent, the only way to watch content is via streaming. A solution to all these problems is the Synology DS220j, a personal cloud solution for backups and data sharing. The DS220j has countless uses including accessing your media files on phones, smart TVs and streaming boxes and even helps in storing video footage from CCTV cameras. From music to videos to images, the DS220j can store everything. Which Is The Best Hard Drive For NAS © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla While Synology only sells the NAS (network-attached storage) enclosures which means you need to get your own HDD for storing data. There are plenty of options available but we recommended getting the WD RED or WD RED Pro HDDs for this purpose. These drives are the industry standard amongst “data hoarders” simply because they are more reliable and specifically optimised for NAS systems. For the DS220j, we used 2X 6TB WD Red Pro drives for storing innumerable amounts of data such as images, movies, music and our entire PC backup. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The drives are built specifically for Synology’s RAID feature and come with a 5-year warranty. These drives are meant to be kept on 24/7 and work flawlessly with Synology’s RAID error recovery control feature. Last but not least, for streaming content, you need HDDs that have a high RPM and these drives can go up to 7200rpm. A simple search on Google and Reddit will yield that the WD Red line of HDDs are the industry standard for network-attached storages. So, for the purpose of this guide, we decided to go with the best and in our experience, these drives worked like a charm. Getting Set Up © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When it comes to setting up, the DS220j is fairly straight forward. As the enclosure uses the SATA interface, you can essentially plug in the hard drives and get started with the setup. You do have to put in some screws though for better protection and keeping the HDDs in place. The exclusive has LED indicators and a small opening at the back for airflow keeping the drives cool. In addition, there is a Gigabit LAN port and three USB 3 ports. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Once you are done setting up and plugging in the DS220j with LAN, all you need to do is start a browser and load the IP address. You can locate the IP address from your router’s interface or use the DiskStation Manager (DSM) setup wizard. Once you’re done setting up the IP address, Server Name and your Synology account; its time to get rolling with transferring files. Since the DS220j is connected to the network via LAN, you can now transfer your files from the computer without using any external drives. You simply drag and drop folders as you like. I had setup a few folders such as movies, images, music and ebooks. After the transfer of your files is complete, you can now setup your media server via using a Plex Account. Streaming Your Content You will first need to download the Plex Media Server app for the package center; Synology’s sort of app store. Once downloaded, Plex will automatically setup the media server with the DS220j after you have signed in. You are now almost ready to stream your own content on your phone, smart TV and media player. Click on the Plex Media Server, go to Settings and set up your directory path from the menu. Once the remote patch from Plex has been mapped, the app will automatically start indexing content from your enclosure. © MensXP In order to start viewing your content, you need to make sure you are on the same network as the DS220j on your device and have the Plex app installed. Plex is available on Android, iOS, Android TV, Apple TV, Samsung Smart TVs, LG Smart TVs and every other major Android smart TV out there. Once you’ve signed in to Plex from your smartphone or TV, your entire library will be viewable and you can start watching right away. Thanks to being on the local network, you don’t experience any form of buffering problems either as you simply play audio or videos directly from the HDD. If you wish to watch content on your smartphone or tablet from anywhere, you will have to setup a virtual network on your router if it supports its and connect to the DS220j via that method. © Plex The Ubiquiti Dream Machine is capable of doing that however there are plenty of other routers that have the same feature by default. Having said that, when playing content remotely, the DS200j will transcode the video and the enclosure’s Realtek RTD1296 1.4Ghz quad-core processor and 2GB RAM is only capable of running one stream at a time. Since this is an entry-level NAS enclosure, you can’t really upgrade the hardware with this model however you can do so with some of Synology’s other models. When viewing content from the same network, you can have multiple devices streaming content at the same time without any problems. Apart from streaming your own content, you can also use the DS22j for taking backups of your devices and in turn take a backup of your backup. You can use Synology’s RAID feature which basically takes an automatic backup of your stored files. In the event of a hard drive failing, you will still have access to all of your data however there is a drawback to this solution. The feature basically reduces the total usable storage space by half, in our case that would be 6TB as the other 6TB was being used for the automatic backup. Why The Synology DS22j? © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Synology DS220j enclosure is the perfect starting point for beginners and it does not take too much space. It’s ideal for saving backup data or running a home media server to stream video, music, audiobooks and other tasks that can be automated. If you’ve always been wondering how one can set up a media server of their own, the Synology DS22j is the perfect way to go. View the full article
  4. Today, India finally starts the world’s biggest vaccination drive against COVID-10 which has infected more than a crore people in the country. The pandemic has already killed more than 1.5 lakh people in India, however, there is now good news. India will have over 3,000 sessions, around 100 beneficiaries from the 3 crore priority group that consists of healthcare and frontline workers as the rollout was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier this morning. © Reuters The first phase of the COVID-19 vaccination starts with two approved vaccines i.e. ‘Covishield’ and ‘Covaxin’. The first phase of the world’s biggest inoculation drive against the novel virus is expected to be completed in the next few months. The exercise will be conducted for individuals above the age of 18, for the moment, and each site will function similar to an election booth. Workers will have three hard copies of the beneficiary list and the names will also be uploaded by officials to the Co-Win portal. Today’s list was uploaded earlier this week on Thursday and will follow similar steps in days to follow. © Reuters An official said: “The vaccination session is from 9 am to 5 pm. Whoever comes till 5 pm will be vaccinated even after 5 pm, just like how it happens in elections.” The vaccines that will be administered in the first phase will be free. “The Centre will bear the expenses for vaccinating the 3 crore priority population,” PM Narendra Modi said earlier this week. © Reuters Out of the two approved vaccines, Covishield is the Indian variant of a vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford called the AZD122. The vaccine is being developed and manufactured in the country by Pune-based Serum Institute of India (SII). Currently, SII is capable of manufacturing over 2 million doses per day from a single line of production. © Reuters The company will be adding six more lines in the coming weeks to increase the output levels. Covaxin, the second vaccine has been developed by Hyderabad-based Bharat Biotech in partnership with the National Institute of Virology. At the moment, there are 1.1 core doses of Covishield and 55 lakh doses of Covaxin available for administration. Each person has to get two shots of both vaccines within the span of 28 days apart. India has already conducted three mock drills in preparation of the rollout and the exercise was carried out to test the logistical and operational capabilities for the rollout. View the full article
  5. Samsung has announced its latest series of flagship smartphones i.e. the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and the Galaxy S21 Ultra. The new smartphones support 5G connectivity and are powered by the company’s latest Exynos 2100 SoC. In total, there were three models announced where the ‘Ultra’ flagship offers exclusive features.

Much like the previous flagships by Samsung, the S21 Series also sports a punch-hole display, however, this time around the resolution of the smartphone is not at par with previous models. As for internal storage, the S21 and S21+ comes in two variants i.e. 128GB and 256GB however this no way to expand storage via a microSD slot anymore. For some reason, Samsung has opted to use 6.2-inch and 6.7-inch AMOLED displays with an FHD+ Resolution(2400×1080 pixels) resolution for the S21 and the S21+. Previous models have come with QHD+ resolution which is a downgrade in many aspects. The displays also implement adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz much like previous models. (c) Twitter/Ice Universe In the camera department, both devices come with a triple camera setup at the back with a main 12MP sensor, a 64MP Telephoto with OIS, 12MP f/1.8 wide-angle,, 12MP f/2.2 Ultra-wide with 120° FOV.

  6. The PlayStation 5 will finally be available for pre-order from 12th January at 12 PM on e-commerce websites and offline stores. The console saw a delay for its launch in the country however it will finally be available from online and offline retails stores. The PlayStation 5 will be available via Amazon, Flipkart, Reliance Digital, Croma, Games The Shop, ShopatSC, Vijay Sales and other official partners. Interestingly enough, listings for the console have also appeared on other retailers such as Gameloot and PrepaidGamer.com. There is a good chance that the console will also be available for pre-order at retail stores in your neighbourhood. Having said that, Sony advises calling your local retailer before placing an offline pre-order. © Sony PlayStation As of now, select Sony Centers and GamesTheShop are confirmed to offer the console for pre-order. IGN India reports, some Sony Centres are issuing PIN numbers and time slots for customers who want to place orders for the console at the physical outlets.

  7. It seems like Krafton, the company behind PUBG, is working on a sequel to the popular battle royale game. According to reports by Korean outlet MTN, the sequel is currently under development. The report also added a mobile version of the game is also currently under development. PUBG Mobile is currently the highest-earning game in the world and is breaking all records even after its ban in India. It would be interesting to see if matters between the Indian authorities and Krafton improves before the sequel is released. It is worth noting that the PC and console port of PUBG has not been banned in India and is accessible via Steam and digital stores. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The report by the Korean outlet referred to the new game that is being developed as ‘Battlegrounds’ and ‘Battlegrounds mobile’ instead of PUBG and PUBG Mobile respectively. The website also detailed that a cross multi-platform title for PC and console is under development alongside a mobile port as well. “From the first half of last year, PUBG has been developing a new mobile game [named] ‘Project XTRM’ based on the worldview of ‘Battleground'[PUBG] .” The concept of this new game has been labelled as ‘Battleground Mobile 2’ or PUBG Mobile 2.0” the report said. The report also went on to state that “there was a team that was preparing a new PC/console platform for the ‘Battleground’ IP in Krafton, and this team was transferred to PUBG at the beginning of last year. We are in full swing, but if the game is successfully developed and completed, it is highly likely to be named ‘Battle Ground 2’” © Reddit As of now, there is no official name for the sequel but there is a good chance that it might be called “PUBG Mobile 2.0.” The sequel might introduce new maps, weapons and mechanics that are not present in the current game. However, it would be interesting to see if the sequel improves upon the gameplay and make it a smoother experience than before. © PUBGEsports/Twitter The game has been riddled with cheaters and hackers that have caused the game’s popularity dip on PC and consoles. The newer version of PUBG Mobile could also be bigger than the predecessor however not much is known about the mobile sequel of the game. PUBG Mobile India is already facing many hurdles in India as the company has not been granted permission to make the game available officially in the country. If PUBG Mobile 2.0 is indeed developed by Tencent Games again, there’s a good chance the sequel might also face similar hurdles in the future. Source: MTN View the full article

The BMC officials said Sonu was given ample time to respond but he chose to ignore it. The complaint letter said that the development work is in complete violation of the MRTP Act (Maharashtra Regional Town Planning Act). After the news started to get viral, people had divided opinions on the case. Some called him a show-off and some supported Sonu and bashed the BMC. BMC is jealous.

Just because he is actor doesnt mean he can do anything he wants.. Illegal activities should not be Entertained at all. — Vijayment ツ (@vijayment) January 7, 2021There are hundreds of residential buildings converted into commercial one for shops across south Mumbai.

  11. Joe Biden’s victory is more like a bitter pill to swallow for the true Donald Trump fans who created a nuisance and protesters tore down metal barricades at the bottom of the Capitol’s steps. The supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol and wanted to stop Congress from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory. A curfew was announced after the violence and going by the recent updates, the police have arrested 52 Trump supporters for creating a situation of unrest in the state. Social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter also blocked Trump for 12 hours and asked to remove the three breaking tweets he had done yesterday that provoked people even further.

  12. According to the recent reports by IANS, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has a net worth of a whopping Rs. 14,489.80 (at the end of financial year 2018-19) and earned over Rs. 4,000 crore during the said FY. Almost half of this income (Rs 2,407.46 crore) came from the Indian Premier League season that they held in 2018, making it not only the most powerful cricket board in the world but also the wealthiest. According to IANS, BCCI was worth ₹14,489.80 crore at the end of the financial year 2018-19. #Cricket — Usman Akhtar (@usmanakhtar_) January 6, 2021 However, after the conclusion of the 13th season of the IPL in the United Arab Emirates, news of the Indian cricket board expanding league became mainstream. BCCI confirmed that they will be looking to add two more franchises in the league making the total number of teams go up to 10. While the addition of the two teams was to be done to the 2021 season of the league, the lack of time due to the coronavirus pandemic threw that plan out the window and the 2022 season looks to be the big one. The BCCI has signaled the likely addition of two new teams to the #IPL ⤵ — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) December 3, 2020 But how much will it cost for potential team owners to get associated with the illustrious organisation? According to reports, it would have to be at least Rs. 1,500 crore. “Nothing has been officially discussed about the base price as yet. But during BCCI AGM we discussed the matter informally. Ownership of IPL team is now a very prized asset and we feel the base price for the new IPL team will be nothing less than 1500 Cr or probably more,” the official said as quoted by Inside Sport. “IPL GC will decide the base price and tender timelines. In 2018, JSW took 50% of Delhi Capitals (At that time Delhi Daredevils) at a valuation of 1100 Cr. We know the valuation for the teams are increasing by every edition. Moreover, our new Media Rights tender is due, it will further enhance the valuation for teams. So the base price of 1500-1600 cr is not far fetched,” added the official. View the full article
  13. Archie Singh is a transwoman who faced a lot of hurdles and was told by modelling agents that she isn’t a real woman. However, she was headstrong and kept working hard towards her goals. She told News18 in an interview, "I am a woman, and I'm trans but I'm equally a woman. My official government ID recognizes me as a woman, and I have had gender-reassignment surgery, I told them," Archie said, remembering the discrimination she faced. "But they didn't listen.

The stretch will be made from New Ashok Nagar to Sahibabad. “Approvals have to be taken at various levels for bids that are funded by multilateral agencies. This bid was also awarded following the set procedure and guidelines. Now, all the civil work tenders of the 82-km-long Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut corridor have been awarded and the construction is going on in full swing to commission the project in time,” an NCRTC spokesperson told PTI.

The time to commute from Delhi to Meerut will be only one hour as opposed to the earlier which took around 4 hours. The entire corridor will be operational in 2025.

  20. Samsung is most probably removing chargers from future smartphones that have been rumoured for a while. However, the South Korean giant has been caught deleting an ad that was used to mock Apple when it removed the charger from the iPhone 12 boxes. The ad was made by Samsung’s official handle in the Caribbean the day the iPhone was announced. It had a picture with the caption that said: “included with your Galaxy.” © Samsung/Carribean Samsung has deleted ads and posts from their social media channels in the past that were used to mock Apple for making bold choices. Back when the Galaxy Note 10 was announced without a headphone jack, the company deleted artworks that mocked Apple for removing the headphone jack from the iPhone 7. Samsung has usually followed Samsung in Apple’s footsteps and it isn’t necessarily a bath thing. Removing the charger from the box a smartphone could be good for the environment and in Samsung’s case more beneficial as it does not use a proprietary charging port. Recent Samsung phones all support PD fast charging via the USB-C port and are compatible with third-party chargers as well. © LetsGoDigital Customers of previous Galaxy phones will also find it easier to use old chargers as some of previous Samsung phones have already been shipping with USB-C chargers and cables. In the case of Apple, it was a bit harder since the majority of previous Apple users were still using a USB-A charging brick. This was problematic as customers were forced to buy a new charger that came with a USB-C port since the iPhone 12 ships with a USB-C to Lightning cable. Having said that, it is quite ironic to see if Samsung does remove the charger from the box mere months after mocking Apple for the same decision. We will know for sure soon as Samsung is expected to announce the next Galaxy S series of smartphones in January 2021. View the full article

Confirming the same, an NCB official told PTI, "Karan was asked to give details of the party. Accordingly, the NCB on Friday received a reply from him to the notice. In the reply, Karan maintained that no drug was consumed at the party." In his response, Karan also mentioned that the phone used to shoot the video has been misplaced. People think that this show is nothing but a way of preventing his damaged reputation but this hasn’t helped them change the perspective. Here are the reactions: DHARMA productions ur KARMA has exposed ur character!! Now try whatever.#FastTrackSSRCase — Ruchi Pandey (@Ruchi4Tweets) December 22, 2020Tumhari yhi aukat hai ab pic.twitter.com/fP9CfaI2nc — लोहपुरुषᴵʳᵒⁿᴹᵃⁿ (@isteelbreaker) December 22, 2020All marketing gimmicks. don’t mess with topics of national interest.

  23. After teasing fans with a poster yesterday, Prime Video has now dropped the teaser of its new web series Tandav. Created and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Tandav, which is a 9-part series, is all set for a 2021 release. According to Prime Video, ‘the series will take viewers inside the closed, chaotic corridors of power and uncover the manipulations, charades as well as the dark secrets of people who will go to any lengths in pursuit of power.’ The teaser gives you an insight into how a Prime Minister is the king of the country and how Indian politics functions. The teaser does look promising and we have three reasons as to why we think it might be an exciting watch. 1. Political CommentaryBe it Sarkar Raj or Rajneeti, Indian audiences have always lapped up stories around the political scenario in the country and Tandav also falls under the same umbrella. Talking about the theme of the show, Creator, Director, and Producer Ali Abbas Zafar said, “Through Tandav, we take audiences into the power-hungry world of politics. As you watch the show, you’ll realize that there is no right or wrong, there is no black or white; the world of power is about the world of greys. I believe that content must be backed by credible performances and I am fortunate to have such heavyweights in the show. I’m excited that my debut as a creator-director in the digital domain is with Amazon Prime Video which will take this intriguing and gripping story of Tandav to millions across the world!” Here's the teaser: 2. Ensemble Cast And Outstanding ActorsOne of the reasons why we think it might work with the audience is because of the ensemble cast which includes Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Sunil Grover, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Dino Morea, Kumud Mishra, Gauahar Khan, Amyra Dastur, Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub, Kritika Kamra, Sarah Jane Dias, Sandhya Mridul, Annup Sonii, Hitten Ttejwani, Paresh Pahuja, and Shonali Nagrani among others. Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals, Prime Video said, “As we usher in 2021, we are delighted to present our first political drama, Tandav, a lush exploration of the power that highlights how far people are willing to go in pursuit of power. With Ali Abbas Zafar steering the ship and an outstanding cast led by Saif, Dimple, Sunil and Zeeshan, who will be seen in truly unique avatars, we are confident that this series will resonate with everyone seeking content that is both entertaining and intriguing.” 3. Saif Ali Khan: The Experimental ActorSaif has given us impressive performances in the recent past and he has no qualms in experimenting with his characters. From his terrific portrayal of Sartaj Singh in Sacred Games to playing the antagonist to Ajay Devgn’s hero in Om Raut’s historical Tanaji: The Unsung Warrior, Saif is not afraid to take up roles that many actors won’t consider experimenting with. We get a strong glimpse of him in the teaser and he surely is one of the main reasons why we are looking forward to this series.

  24. A horror game called Devotion was set to release on CD Projekt Red’s digital storefront GOG. However, the plan had to be cancelled due to Chinese censorship. In fear of facing retribution from the Chinese government, GOG cancelled its plans to host the game on its storefront as the game had some controversial content. © Reuters Players in the game found content that referred to Xi Jinping, the president of China, as a “Winnie-the-Pooh moron.” It’s no news that the Chinese president and the CCP are quite sensitive to the cartoon bear as any images of the bear have been banned on Chinese social media. ‘Winnie the pooh’ has been used as a comparison by memers which has been notoriously referenced by other personalities such as John Oliver and recent movies like ‘Christopher Robin’. Earlier today, it was announced that the game Devotion is coming to GOG. After receiving many messages from gamers, we have decided not to list the game in our store. — GOG.COM (@GOGcom) December 16, 2020 The game has been produced by Taiwanese developer Red Candle Games who have been at the centre of censorship controversy ever since the game was released. This is not the first time the Chinese Government has flexed its blanket power to dictate censorship in games, movies and other forms of popular media. PUBG Mobile, the popular battle-royale game made by the Chinese company Tencent Games was also found censoring what people could say in the game as well. © Share America Apps like TikTok have also blocked accounts of users in the past who have previously made content that talks about China’s controversial “detention camps.” Last year, Activision Blizzard banned a Hong Kong-based player from a professional tournament known as “Blitzchung” for his statement during a post-match interview, “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our time.” Tencent Holdings was the real reason behind Ng being stripped of his winnings and being banned from competing as the company owns 10% of Activision Blizzard. In the case of ‘Devotion’, it seems like GOG and other platforms do not want to sell the game to avoid backlash from the Chinese government. Both storefronts operate in China and in order to appease the Chinese government and maintain their presence in a major market, companies often avoid taking risks with controversial games. The simplest solution to this problem is not selling the game in the Chinese region, however GOG chose to remove it from the worldwide store altogether. Here’s how the world reacted to GOG’s decision to give in to Chinese censorship: *After receiving threats from the Chinese Communist Party, we have decided not to list the game in our store. Fixed that for you. https://t.co/Bw7cFfOcfw — Oliver Jia (オリバー·ジア) (@OliverJia1014) December 16, 2020When a country so great and strong they aim to literally eradicate a video game on earth and @CDPROJEKTRED @GOGcom decide to join them Gamer friendly my a$$ https://t.co/w5r82rL75l — w 🦋️ (@whk8964) December 16, 2020Everyone who complains about censorship in games needs to be taking a long, hard look at this situation. A Taiwanese company can't publish their game on any major platform because of one obtuse (long-removed) reference to China's president THIS is what real censorship looks like https://t.co/AldEYfVzNP — Jon Riesenbach P5 Scramble (@moriyoshijon) December 16, 2020Good job GOG, good job. Now kneel before your master. https://t.co/W6oHUf2NYB pic.twitter.com/OriRPIzjnZ — Frize (like limited) (@Frize001) December 16, 2020This is ridiculous. @redcandlegames deserves better than this. If you have any love for freedom of expression or for games in general PLEASE scream for them to release it anyway. https://t.co/8FJieuSZ7w — Zero Anonymity (@WiredInZero) December 16, 2020 View the full article
  25. New leaks this week indicate that Apple is working on a lower price point truly wireless earphones that are expected to launch sometime in 2021. The new earphones will be slightly more affordable than the current AirPods Pro and higher than the regular AirPods with the wired charging case. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Elec cites their sources from the supply chain and says we can expect a new pair of AirPods in the year 2021. These truly wireless earphones are expected to borrow design cues from the AirPods Pro albeit not have all of the same features. Apple is in the process of replacing the regular AirPods with the so-called ‘AirPods Pro Lite’ in their stores. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The new AirPods Pro Lite will come with a wireless charging case and will be a value proposition that is similar to Apple’s recent attempts for various products from its portfolio. These new TWS earphones will also likely phase out the classic AirPods as the products will have similar features but an improved design. © 52Audio The AirPods Pro Lite would also have silicon tips like the Pro model and a similar charging case. It is possible that the battery size would be different than the AirPods Pro as it will not feature Active Noise Cancellation. A person familiar with the matter told The Elec that the Lite version will be priced 20% cheaper than the normal AirPods Pro. The third generation of AirPods may launch at a cheaper price point than the current AirPods Pro. However, pricing details of the device could change. Supply chain leaks provide accurate information about features and designs, however pricing predictions are mostly based on assumptions. We should know more next year if Apple launches the new AirPods Pro Lite alongside other products at a future event. Source: The Elec View the full article
