  1. We've already seen a ton of leaks in the last few weeks about the Galaxy S10 and the wait is finally coming to an end. Samsung has announced the launch of S10 today at its Unpacked event in San Francisco. This year's launch is extremely important for the company since the S-series was launched exactly 10 years ago. In the last decade, the S-lineup has played a pivotal role in making Samsung one of the largest smartphone makers in the world. The series has successfully defeated LG, HTC, Sony, and even Google's offerings in the past. To make things even more interesting, Samsung has launched three variants of the phone instead of the usual duo. The S10 is available in three options: the S10e, S10, and S10+. The S10e is being targeted as a slightly cheaper variant of the flagship and it incorporates a majority of the elder sibling's offerings. The S10 is the main flagbearer and lastly, the S10+ has a few more power features along with a larger display. The flagship smartphone Galaxy S10 has a 6.1-inch AMOLED display with a punch-hole front camera that Samsung calls Infinity-O. The proximity and ambient light sensor are now located behind the display. Instead of Samsung Experience UI, the new S10 ships with a new skin called One UI. It is built around focus blocks and has segregated viewing to provide more productivity options and use maximum area of the display. Under the hood is an Exynos 9820 (Snapdragon 855 in the US) processor, coupled along with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. At the rear is a triple camera setup consisting of a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens, 12-megapixel dual aperture sensor with optical image stabilization, and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera. On the front is a single "dual-pixel" sensor that is located inside the display punch-hole. The software is capable of recognising 30 scenes and adjusts the capturing settings accordingly. For authentication, Samsung is now relying on an in-display fingerprint scanner as well as face unlock. Backing these internals is a 3400mAh battery and the company has added a host of new charging features. This includes wireless PowerShare that can reverse charge another device. In simpler words, the phone can be used as a portable power bank to wirelessly charge compatible accessories like Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Buds. It'll be available in Prism White and Prism Black. Coming to the S10e, it houses the same processor as the S10 along with 6GB RAM and a slightly smaller 5.8-inch AMOLED display. Even the battery has been reduced down to 3100mAh and it doesn't get the 12-megapixel telephoto lens on the rear. The S10e will be available in Prism White colour only. The S10+, on the other hand, gets a 6.4-inch AMOLED display and has a dual camera set up on the front in a wider punch-hole. Even the battery has been boosted to 4100mAh and will be available in an additional Prism Green colour. It shares the same processor, but gets two variants in memory: 8GB+128GB and 12GB+1TB (yes, 1 T!). The 1TB storage variant is available in Ceramic Black colour option. Samsung has also announced the availability of Galaxy Ecosystem, and it consists of Galaxy Buds, Wireless Combo Charge power bank, and Wireless Charger Duo (charger). The brand is also partnering with Marvel and selling "Galaxy Friends" covers that have a design of Iron Man, Spiderman, Captain America, and the Avengers. Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e will be available in Prism White, Prism Black, Prism Blue and Flamingo Pink. Galaxy S10+ will also be available in two premium Ceramic models: Ceramic Black and Ceramic White. Preorders for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e begin tomorrow, February 21, 2019. Pricing starts at $899.99 for Galaxy S10, $999.00 for Galaxy S10+ and $749.99 for Galaxy S10e. India pricing and availability will be known soon.

  3. Video games may change as we know it, thanks to a new space that is going to be occupied by Google and even Apple. Companies like Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony need to be on the fence, as Google is about to enter the highly profitable video game business with Project Stream. Game Developer's Conference is about to take place next month and Google is said to unveil its gaming streaming service. The invitations were sent out for the March 19 keynote, however, did not mention the topic of discussion. © Gooogle The gaming unit is going to be building on the success of Project Stream where games will be running on the cloud and streamed directly to a PC, Tablet, TV or anything that has a display. The experience, however, still remains to be seen as the games will be streamed, and different types of internet connections may affect the overall experience. Laggy connections are a major concern when streaming games which could be a huge factor when considering a streaming service. The new streaming service is said to compete directly with Steam, the Epic Games Store and even consoles. Google is not the only tech giant that is looking into the video games industry, rumours suggest that even Apple is also looking at announcing its own version of a gaming console or a subscription service. © Gooogle Currently, Sony's streaming service called PlayStation Now offers 650 games on the PlayStation 4 which includes classic and catalogue titles. Microsoft is also looking into the game streaming, as the company has started public trials for Project xCloud which will let gamers stream Xbox One games to computer, phones and tablets. Would you stream games on your Tablet, PC or Smartphone? Let us know in the comments if Google's new project excites you. Source: Fortune
  4. The official websites of Pakistan's Foreign Ministry and the Army were hacked on Saturday night, making them inaccessible for users outside the country. Later, several other websites were hacked and defaced. The hackers left behind a message stating "We will never forget #14/02/2019". © Reuters According to the report in Pakistan's Dawn, the government websites were working fine within the country, but users from other countries were unable to access them. Ministry spokesperson Muhammad Faisal said, "The website is functioning without any issues in Pakistan. However, visitors to the website from Holland, Australia, Britain, and Saudi Arabia are facing difficulty opening it." © Reuters Several media reports say a list of the hacked websites is being circulated on WhatsApp and other social media platforms claiming that "Pakistan has faced it's worst cyber attack in history, in last 72 hours". A lot of these websites have been brought back to normal now. "The IT team is currently occupied in thwarting the hackers onslaught," Faisal added. The list of Pakistani websites hacked include: https://sindhforests.gov.pk/op.html https://mail.sindhforests.gov.pk/op.html https://pkha.gov.pk/op.html https://ebidding.pkha.gov.pk/op.html https://mail.pkha.gov.pk/op.html http://kda.gkp.pk/op.html http://blog.kda.gkp.pk/op.html http://mail.kda.gkp.pk/op.html https://kpsports.gov.pk/op.html https://mail.kpsports.gov.pk/op.html http://seismic.pmd.gov.pk/op.html http://namc.pmd.gov.pk/op.html http://rmcpunjab.pmd.gov.pk/FlightsChartFolder/op.html http://ffd.pmd.gov.pk/modis/op.html https://badin.opf.edu.pk/14-02-2019.php http://radar.pmd.gov.pk/islamabad/op.html Read more at: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/68042727.cms?utm_source=contentofinterest&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=cppst Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs website was accessible in India, but an attempt to open the Pakistan Army website showed the following message: "The owner of this website has banned the country or region your IP address is in (IN) from accessing this website." © BCCL Pakistan believes the hackers are of Indian origin because defaced websites referred to the recent Pulwama attack. These cyber attacks by Indian ethical hackers come after over 40 CRPF personnel were killed on 14th February 2019 in one of the deadliest terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir. Previously, fingers were pointed to India-based hackers when the official website of PPP was found defaced in June 2017. © BCCL Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the attack, and the group is known to be shielded by the Pakistani administration. The Indian government has slammed Pakistan over its terror links, but the neighbouring country has denied charges. Over 50 countries have condemned the barbaric attack and expressed support to India in its fight against terrorism. Immediately after the attack, India withdrew the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status, which was accorded to Pakistan in 1996.
  5. 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

  7. Valentine's Day is overrated. Every year, one rotten day, couples get to vomit all the cheese they produce in their respective relationships in the entire year on Instagram. Some of the the captions are beyond annoying. Did we mention the creepy hearts that flood the streets and the markets as they monetize this pathetic holiday? Pink and red become the most annoying colours. And what's with the gooey Whatsapp messages on family groups? it's like an epidemic spreading and consuming everything and everyone that comes in twos. If you're single this year, you're probably immune to this horrible disease of wasting away your money on hearts and chocolates. Good for you. And we appreciate you for that, which is why we have ideas for 14 of February to save you from all the exasperation of seeing all these couples. Here are some non-romantic ideas for Valentine's Day that you can enjoy with you and yourself: 1. Get Yourself A Comfy Night Suit © Instagram If you're going to stay at home and chill on Netflix, might as well get yourself a fresh pair of night suit set that makes you feel nice about yourself and also feels nice on the skin. You could indulge in solids or get a quirky pattern like avocados all over, or a Marvel/DC-themed set. 2. A New Pair Underwear & Quirky Socks To Match With It © HM If you're not big on staying in and would rather go hook up with someone because who even catches feelings #gross. A new pair of quirky underwear and socks are a great idea to turn around a dull evening. 3. Face Sheet Masks & Grooming Products © Instagram You could also get yourself Korean grooming products like a face sheet mask which locks in the moisture and hydrates your skin. Or a glowy mask, take a cue from celebrities like Ansel Elgort, John Mayer, at least you'll come out a man with skin that girls get jealous of. 4. Get A New Look © Instagram A great makeover is a great way to spend tomorrow. Go to a salon and get a new hairstyle that suits you. You'll surprise yourself with the power of a great haircut that will certainly turn heads around.
  8. If you are a millennial, a regular Uber user, or just someone who spends more than eight hours on the internet, chances are, you've already heard about the recent craze around Uber Ratings. We know what you're thinking. Is this really happening? Is this some new sort of lifestyle benchmark? Is this here to stay? Well, duh. Up until now, you have been rating your drivers, but we bet you didn't know that the drivers are rating you too, and from what we hear, the higher your Uber rating, the better you are as a human being.

Take a look at these hilarious posts that have created a bit of a buzz recently. Spoiler alert: How you treat your drivers might reflect on how your next date treats you. 1. No Rating, No Date Seems like this guy takes Uber Ratings quite seriously. His online dating profile legit says, “Swipe right if your Uber rating is 4.8+”. Meaning? You need to improve your rating, in order to get back to dating. 2. Want A Job? Get Yourself A 4.7+ Rating Yes, you saw that right! You may need an Uber rating of 4.75 or above to land a job! Time to update your CV, isn't it? 3. Uber Rating On Marriage Proposals! Yup, we were just as surprised. Uber ratings are now a requirement for getting married as well.

  9. 'Eating clean and eating lean' is a way of life that has been made all the more popular in the recent times, courtesy the long ongoing cultural awakening with regards to food consumption. Veganism, Pescetarianism and all the other -isms making their way to mainstream diet categories every other day is proof that the world is only catching up to something that Indians have been privy to for the longest time. How, you ask? Well, the ancient Ayurvedic philosophy of 'sattvic aahaar' has been preached and followed in the Indian subcontinent for the longest time. Sattvic foods are fresh, juicy, light, nourishing, as well as tasty, which give necessary energy to our body without taxing it. Thus, when it comes to “eating clean and eating lean' we have had the secret within our reach all along. © MensXP But the issue is, with commercialisation ruling over our lives, we haven't been able to stick to the philosophy the way we should. So, two friends decided to take matters into their own hands and change things for good. But how could they compete with the roaring popularity of packaged food that was such a hit with one and all, and also happened to be the main culprit behind why we moved away from the sattvic way of life in the first place. That is exactly what that led to the inception of Sattviko, which aims to present traditional Indian recipes with a modern twist. Sure enough, no sooner had they launched that their products took the entire 'packaged food' market by storm, making them the largest global Indian brand which takes Indianness to every household. © MensXP Today, Sattviko's flavoured makhana, gud chana, khakra chips, and minute namkeen are some of their most sought after products. But this success didn't come easy to Prasoon and Ankush, who are the masterminds behind 'Sattviko'. Before they got their hands on the winning formula, the duo had to face their own share of setbacks. There were two major learning curves they had to work through before they struck gold. Prasoon and Ankush had launched their first startup Tech Buddies with a few of their friends during their final year at IIT Roorkee. After graduation they shifted base to Delhi and within a year managed to achieve a turnover of 1 crore. But soon one of their key partners Suren, quit the venture, followed by two others. © MensXP At this point Prasoon and Ankush decided to move to Jaipur to the explore the opportunity their. But even with large expansion, they did not get the desired returns and had to sell of their company by the end of 2013. This bugged Prasoon to no end, he couldn't keep still until he discovered what was the reason behind the company's unsuccessful trajectory. By the end of that year, after much self-reflection and groundwork, Prasoon and Ankush decided to launch a chain of restaurants that served traditional Indian sattvic food. While at it, they also introduced sattvic food in packaged form and that became a huge hits with consumers. That is how they decided to shut their restaurants and focus entirely on packaged traditional Indian food items instead. © MensXP Talking about this huge leap, Prasoon told MensXP that, “we didn't know ABC of packaged food business when we started out,” and yet within a short span of 4 years Sattviko has managed to reintroduce sattvic food to 10 million Indians. For them, “entrepreneurship is just like a regular profession, but with extra challenges. However, the long term satisfaction is much bigger.” Sattiko as a team has grown manifolds since its creation, and people who are connected to the brand live by the philosophy of seva or service. Prasoon and Ankush plan to take Sattviko to the global platform, and have no plans of stopping any time soon. Catch Prasoon and Ankush share more insights into entrepreneurship, its challenges and quirks, as they spill the beans on their success mantra to MensXP.
  10. After the infamous bout between the Russian MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov and the 'Notorious' Conor McGregor, which got out of hand within two minutes of McGregor tapping out as Nurmagomedov leapt over the octagon and attacked two of McGregor's men. The incident led to the two rivals getting into a lot of trouble, as Khabib was banned for nine months with a hefty fine of $500,000 while McGregor was suspended for six months with a $50,000 fine off his match fee by the NAC for their roles in the UFC 229 post-fight melee. However, it seems that while Nurmagomedov is spending his days of asylum in quiet, McGregor is out already searching for his next prey. The name of McGregor's potential next target is Kelvin Gastelum, the new UFC middleweight champion who won the title by forfeit after his opponent and former champion Robert Whittaker was ruled out of the main event of UFC 234 on Saturday in Melbourne, Australia after being diagnosed with a hernia and had to undergo immediate surgery. McGregor did not approve of the fact that Gastelum was practically gifted the title without even throwing a single punch and showed his disapproval on Twitter in the most 'Conor McGregor' way he could: Why is that worm holding the 185lb belt? There are worms crawling on his skin! It was absolutely ludicrous to even consider allowing him to compete. Let alone now walk around the arena shaking our fans hands. Someone sort this, this instant. And sterilize that belt. Immediately. — Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) February 10, 2019 Calling Gastelum a 'worm', McGregor took a jab at the champion after he was trolled online for having some dermatologic issues. Formerly working as a bounty hunter, the current UFC middleweight champion, Kelvin Gastelum fought his first professional battle in Mexico in 2010 against Jose Sanchez, who submitted to Gastelum after a barrage of punches destroyed his face. He made his UFC debut in January 2013 during the Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs Team Sonnen and went on to win the Ultimate Fighter contest to become the youngest ever to do while having a brand new UFC contract under his belt. Ever since his debut, Gastelum has entered the ring a total of 19 times out of which he's won 16 and lost the remaining three. After the McGregor tweet, the fighter in Gastelum confidently replied to the notorious one: Come take it off.... Little prick! https://t.co/823ptmymr8 — #OnAmission4Gold (@KelvinGastelum) February 10, 2019 Is this the comeback fight we are looking forward to as Conor's return is due in March? McGregor's provocative tweet for the champ comes after he commended Anderson Silva's losing efforts in the battle against Israel Adesanya which replaced the Gastelum-Whittaker bout Down Under. A couple of weeks ago, McGregor also tickled the thought of fighting 'The Cowboy' Donald Cerrone after his impressive knockout victory over Alexander Hernandez in January.
  11. Shaving might seem to be an extremely simple affair, but it's not. Every man has had bad experiences with shaving, at least once in his life, and it definitely is one of those experiences that one does not want a repeat of. (c) Getty Images There is a correct way and a wrong way to shave, but the trouble is that no one quite knows which is which. You're supposed to glide your razor across your face in a specific direction, that has to do with the usual hair growth pattern on a human male face. Following that pattern will reduce cuts and burns significantly, and also make sure that the stubble that grows afterwards is flawless. (c) Getty Images All you need to do is look at the face shave map here, and follow the arrows to determine the direction in which your razor should move. Make sure to rinse your razor after every stroke. (c) MensXP Say hello to a flawless shave! You're welcome.
  12. Yes, you read that right. Bollywood's most amazing perfectionist who has established himself as a flawless actor, Pankaj Tripathi is set to appear in a major Hollywood project starring none other than Chris Hemsworth. © Insatgram As previously reported, Chris signed for 'Dhaka' which was filmed across South East Asia, with major chunks being shot in Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Pankaj has reportedly been signed up to play a pivotal role in the movie and joined the crew in Thailand last week for the same. The film will also see Golshifteh Farahani, David Harbour, Randeep Hooda, Manoj Bajpayee play some important roles. The movie is a thriller which is being directed by Sam Hargraves who was the second unit director for the global blockbuster 'Avengers: Infinity War'.

  13. It is a universally acknowledged fact that all men come in different body sizes. Seriously, even if standardized clothes fit you well, they will never match up to the level of getting something customized. However, realistically, not everything can be customized which means finding your size in the pool of random sizes. Every brand has their own scale for standardizing a size which varies from year to year. This means that in all likelihood there are chances of you wearing the wrong size. Here are ways you can know for sure that you're wearing a size that you definitely shouldn't be wearing: 1. You Can't Hug Someone In Your Blazer © Twitter If you're wearing a blazer that restricts movement in your arms and makes them heave down, it's definitely the wrong size. Blazer sleeves should never restrict one's movement or look funny around the pits. Next time, while trying on blazers check the motion by moving your hands around and probably even jumping up and down to see how much it can handle. If you cant, you need a bigger size. 2. There's A Gap Between Your Buttons © Twitter If your buttons eventually unbutton during the day, it's an alarming factor that is telling that you need to go a size up with your shirts. The poor buttons can only handle so much. Besides, it is extremely unprofessional to have your buttons open in front of everyone. 3. Your Pants Keep Riding Up © Twitter If the hem of your pants keep riding up and get stuck around your crotch, then there is a problem. Not only is it uncomfortable but also visible to everyone else. This can be the worst when you sit down or stand up in front of people. You need the hem to fall at an appropriate length. 4. You Can't Pass The Finger Test © Twitter The two-finger test is a test through which you can figure out if you're wearing the right size or not. A waistline that fits well standing up might just be too tight while sitting down, which is why you need a size that hugs well in all movements possible. If you can't pinch your pants and still find space, you need to go a size higher. 5. Your Shirt Won't Stay Tucked In For The Longer Duration © Twitter A shirt coming untucked every now and then without reason might mean you're wearing the wrong size in shirts. While running around is a legitimate reason to find it untucked, but if it's a common nonoccurrence you need to go a size up. 6. Your Pockets Keep Flaring © Twitter The one red flag that you be aware of is flaring pants. While wearing pants, your pockets shouldn't find a way to pop out on their own. This not only looks awkward but is also super shabby. Besides, you don't need a pocket thief, as the flared-up pockets make it super easy for you to lose things. 7. Your Shirt Is Too Short When You Sit Down © Twitter Does your T-shirt ride up when you sit? Bad sign. You need to go up a size higher unless you like crop tops.
  14. The runway is the breeding ground for the quirkiest fashion trends that could either provide a good laugh for their artistic aesthetic or end up in a Zara store near you the next week. The next thing you know, everyone's living, breathing that trend. But sometimes the trends introduced on the runway transition into normalcy so quickly that you could never imagine if that was the trend you laughed at. Case in point: a pair of jeans. There is another accessory trend that is bizarrely becoming popular, which is the male harness or as some high fashion brands have clarified: the embroidered bib. See, how actors have worn it: Michael B. Jordan at the Screen Actors' Guild Awards in a purple harness over a classic double breasted tux. © Instagram Chadwick Boseman was also seen wearing one over his ecru suit. © Instagram Timothee Chalamet was seen wearing a black shiny version too. © Instagram And, we cannot forget Virgil Abloh who is speculated to have started this trend. © Instagram Given that most celebrities end up wearing the boring tuxedo, this trend is a great way to dip your toes in the world of accessories for a little something extra, what do you think?
  15. Galaxy S10 is now probably the most leaked smartphone before its launch this year and previous leaks hinted towards an in-display fingerprint. Now the news may have been confirmed, thanks to a since-deleted tweet that highlighted this feature. © Twitter The in-display fingerprint sensor will work similar to what you've seen before on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the OnePlus 6T. A leaked picture shows that the Galaxy S10 will also have a specific spot on the screen where users can place their finger. The placement of the sensor is right between the camera and phone shortcut you see on the lock screen. There's also a good chance that the in-display fingerprint sensor will be used to make secure payments via Samsung Pay. Samsung is expected to use Qualcomm's ultrasonic in-display fingerprint reader technology which works differently than what we have already seen on the OnePlus 6T. The OP6T uses optical sensors which is a tad bit slower than Qualcomm's ultrasonic readers. The Qualcomm tech also enables the display to read your fingerprint in a wider area. We've already seen something similar being tested at Xiaomi and a video showed off its capabilities. © BCCL The fact that Galaxy S10 will have a different way to unlock the smartphone via the in-display fingerprint sensor, we are quite excited to test it out for ourselves. Users still prefer to use a fingerprint scanner for security purposes as it is a more reliable way to secure a smartphone. We've seen numerous instances before where facial recognition systems have been fooled by pictures. In fact, over 30 smartphones have already failed this test and you can all about it here.

  16. There have been numerous reports of PUBG addiction in the last few months and we've even seen people resorting to physical harm after getting addicted to the game. A recent report by the Quartz states that a PUBG fan spends more than 8 hours in a week on an average on the game. Institutions have sent out circulars asking for a complete ban on the game, and people have even sent requests to the government for initiation of a ban. While we'd laugh at a ban, the situation is actually getting serious. More than 120 cases of PUBG addiction were registered at Services for Healthy Use of Technology (SHUT) clinic in National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS). © YouTube Games are supposed to be a source of entertainment, and getting hooked onto them at the cost of work or studies should never be a choice. The symptoms of addiction include deprivation of sleep, loss of real life interests, and subjectively lower attendance along with poor academic performance. If you're a victim of the game's addiction, here are a few steps you can take to ensure healthy usage of technology. © Razer Firstly, you need to start accepting responsibility and know that you are addicted to the game. We cannot solve an issue without acknowledging its existence. Secondly, you have to understand the impact it's having on your day to day life. Are your studies getting affected due to the game? If you're working, has your performance and focus at work changed? If the answer is yes, start thinking about your other hobbies and activities. PUBG was launched nearly a year back, what was your entertainment back then? How did you spend time refreshing yourself? Finding healthy alternatives to passing time can help in distancing yourself from the game. © YouTube You also need to stop blaming the game for captivating you. The phone, the game, the developer etc. aren't responsible for getting you hooked. And no, we don't mean to say abandon the game completely. Overconsumption of anything is hazardous, draw a line between entertainment and addiction. Set yourself time limits and follow them. A good way to understand how much time you've wasted is to keep a track and calculate how many hours you've lost in a week. © Pexels Also, don't be embarrassed to ask for help. Share the issue with your close friends and family and ask them to give a hand. PUBG could also be a distraction you've chosen because of other stressful situations in life. Lastly, even technology can help you out thanks to rising awareness of technology addiction. Both, Google and Apple have recognised that mobile phone addiction in the modern world is a serious problem and are trying to bring a viable solution. If you game on smartphones, you can easily follow the below steps to self reuglate your gaming addiction: For Android © YouTube Last year, Google launched the Digital Wellbeing program with Android Pie update and it aims to help you reduce your smartphone usage. All you need to do is download the app from Play Store, and head to the "Settings" menu. Scroll down and tap "Accessibility", you'll come across two splash pages. The hub has a circle at the top, and the number in the middle shows how long the screen has been turned on. With various colours, the circle shows the apps you spend the most time on. Using these analytics, the system knows which apps you use the most and it tracks your usage over a period of time. © Google Now, you can use the "App Timer" to restrict usage within a certain period of time. Let's say you mark PUBG for "30 minutes", after 30 minutes of gameplay, the app will minimize and a popup appears saying you've hit your allotted screen time. Even the app icon will turn grey indicating it's not available, and taping it would open a screen reminding you about App Limits. Lastly, you can set a "Wind Down" mode that basically makes your phone go grey-scale and the Do Not Disturb mode is automatically switch on. Even a blue light filter is switched on to help you actually wind down to sleep. All you need to do is set a time period, for example 10PM to 6AM. The phone knows that's your sleep cycle and winds down the phone to prevent you from using the phone. For iOS © YouTube Even iOS has a similar feature called Screen Time and it's natively supported on iOS 12. Just go to the "Settings" app and scroll down to "Screen Time". Switch on the feature and it'll start collecting usage logs in the background. You can see when you used your phone, on which apps, and how for long for. You can also see how the overall time you spent on your phone compares to the average. To set up "App Limits", just hit "Add Limit", choose a category, and set your timer. When you hit the wall, Screen Time will let you know with a full-screen notification. Assume this to be your warning message since the notification gives you a ignore option and 15-minute extension. © Apple Unlike Android's Digital Wellbeing, you can select a particular app and need to select a category like social media or gaming. It has a "Downtime" feature that will restrict usage of external apps within the set period and only a few stock apps will be accessible. These are just a few tools that'll help you remind yourself, "You're playing too much!"
  17. The Samsung Galaxy S10 launch is scheduled for February 20th 2019 and we pretty much know everything about the phone right now. There have been numerous CAD leaks, along with reports on the alleged specifications. But thanks to MKBHD, we're getting a first-hand look at a dummy S10 model that is used by the case or cover makers to closely work with. There are going to be three variants of the S10 this year, the flagship S10, the S10+, and a slightly cheaper S10e. Samsung has been launching two variants of the S-series flagship for quite some time, and now the company wants to lure buyers with a slightly cheaper option that carries flagship enough feature, at a lighter price. Considering the success of the iPhone XR, the S10e seems to be a safe bet right now. We hope it won't cannibalise sales of the elder sibling, just like the cheaper iPhone did. The S10 will have a 6.1-inch display with a 3500mAh battery, while the S10+ shall sport a 6.44-inch display with a 4000mAh battery. The S10e is reported to have a slightly smaller 5.8-inch screen, and maybe even a smaller battery. © YouTube/MKBHD The phone has a signature Samsung design, consisting of metal and glass. The glass back is obviously a fingerprint magnet, and the front is strikingly similar to the previous iterations. The bezels are ultra slim, and the chin has been slightly cut down as well. On the left is a secondary utility button, basically a dedicated button for Bixby smart assistant. The first thing you'll notice about the S10 and S10+ is its camera array. Both sport triple lens setup on the rear, while the S10 has a single front camera. The S10+ gets a dual camera setup on the front, and all the front sensors are housed in a punch-hole design. We've already seen this technology in action with the A8s, and Samsung likes to call it the Infinity-O display. © YouTube/MKBHD The physical fingerprint sensor is no-where to be seen and we're assuming it'll be now located under the display. We've already seen this technology in action with the multiple phones like the Vivo NEX and OnePlus 6T. Lastly, the headphone jack is located on the bottom, and Samsung isn't yet forcing us to move on. This shall be the 10th anniversary of the S-series smartphones, and to make things even more interesting, Samsung could launch an S10+ variant with 1TB of internal storage. However, these are just pre-launch rumours and reports, and we'd ask you to take 'em with a pinch of salt since the final product could definitely vary.

  19. When life becomes dull, it's not easy to find your spunk and fight back. In order to succeed in life, one has to make it fun, positive, and full of motivation! If you find your life boring and unmotivated, you simply won't be able to make any progress. There are many reasons why you might not be feeling any enthusiasm in your life. And there are even more ways to overcome it. Following are 4 such reasons why you might not be feeling motivated and ways to overcome it: 1. Lack Of Purpose It's very important to have a goal, to have a purpose in life. Following it keeps you sane and sorted. If you don't have a purpose, you won't find any reason to move forward in life. Set a goal, fix a target! When you wake up, you should have a goal in your head, and if you are able to successfully create one, you'll be automatically motivated to achieve it. 2. Procrastination This is the worst thing you can do to yourself. When you start postponing your affairs & chores, your mind adapts to procrastination. You won't be doing any work on time and would always feel too tired and lethargic to do so. Procrastination kills the motivation to do anything. Luckily, it's not difficult to come out of this state. Remember two things – 'the 5-minute rule' & 'schedule'. Apply the 5-minute rule in your life. Whatever task can be done under 5 minutes, don't postpone it. Do it as soon as it comes to your mind. You will see a big change in your life by applying this small rule. Small chores will be done, your mind will be happy after completing a task, and slowly, it will start to procrastinate the procrastination. Next is, schedule. Fix a schedule and strictly follow it. Decide at what time you're going to wake up, have breakfast, leave for the office, and every other thing in your everyday life. Give some time for light exercise. Sticking to a schedule would make you punctual, as you would be completing all the tasks within the deadline and this would eventually push you to aim for higher goals. 3. Lack of Money Believe it or not but lack of money can also be de-motivating. If you have gotten accustomed to a lower salary or lower returns, then you won't need the feel to work hard. You would trick yourself into thinking that two square meals & a roof above your head are good enough for you. If that has happened to you, you should become a little materialistic. Set your eye on something, something out of your budget. Convince yourself that you should buy it. You'll see yourself wanting to work harder to be able to buy it. And you would have it eventually. When that happens and you get your motivation back, work smart. Set another milestone, and in your free time, look for other sources to earn. Pick a hobby and try to turn into a profession. You would not only be enjoying your time but would be utilizing it in the most perfect way. A little extra cash would be great for your savings account or for the latest Play Station. Leave the TV Shows and booze for the weekend. On weekdays, focus on improving your income. It is not that hard to find a hobby and become good enough in it that it starts paying you. You just need to be determined. 4. Social Circle Your social circle makes a huge impact on your life. If you surround yourself with positive & happy people, you would also feel happy and motivated. However, if your friends and colleagues are unmotivated and have negative opinions on everything, then this would impact you on a great level. Their constant criticism of the world would make you look at the world the same way. You would start finding fault in everything which would give your brain a great excuse to become slothful. This is when your motivation to do anything would die and you would just spend your time doing nothing. If this is happening to you, you need to get out of such a company. Join some activities like trekking, or dance classes, or yoga classes, basically anything which would help you meet new people. This change will bring a positive impact on your life as you would not only be interacting with new people but will also be joining an activity. This will bring back the motivation you need in your life. Now that we have told you every major reason why you might be becoming an always tired – demotivated person, you should start doing the aforementioned things to achieve greatness in life. Everyone can be a hero, you just need to fight your battle and come as a winner! May the force be with you!
  20. "He has the best taste in clothes, and he is the only man I know who knows the difference between mauve, pink, purple, berry etc. I am so proud of how confident he is, and that he doesn't give a shit about gender norms" Stuti While society does its best to mould gender norms, there are some people who define their own standards of what gender truly means to them. They come from an open-ended perspective of changing things that are too normative in nature, in order to derive a way of living most suited to them. And why not? Isn't that life's first rule? To live under no rules? (c)Facebook Meet Stuti and Arnav, a couple defying every stereotype in sight, living a happy and fulfilling long-term relationship. What makes their relationship an inspiration to the millennial generation? They're will to never succumb under textbook knowledge of how things are perceived by people but to create a tangible wavelength of what they feel is comfortable for them. (c)Facebook The Beginning Stuti and Arnav met through common friends but they mostly chatted online till they decided to finally meet. Our first date ever was at this fantastic little cafe called Le Bistro Du Parc, where it was all about steak, sangria and conversation. She looked stunning in a red dress. I was already a little tipsy on sangria, which in hindsight, was a good thing, considering I am usually a nervous wreck. We started talking even before she sat down, and it she made me feel extremely comfortable from the very first moment- Arnav (c)Facebook Stuti, a student of gender studies had her firm notions intact where feminism was concerned. She knew the black's from white and was an ideal yet staunch feminist. Well, before she met Arnav. As someone who studied gender and feminism in college, I considered myself really woke about gender fluidity. I cut my own hair, wore pants, and did not shy away from owning the masculine side to my personality. I thought that was all I had to do to maintain my status quo as someone intellectual and liberal. But I was wrong, because I was given an actual chance to prove my beliefs - Stuti The couple got along like a house on fire and by the second date, they'd already deliberated enough about how they felt for each other. But for Stuti, Arnav wasn't just another Delhi boy, who had an alpha male syndrome looming though his ego. He wasn't the heterosexual male, who would come out for a date dressed in black and shy away from the mention of pink. He was very aware of his likes from his dislikes and Stuti instantly realised she was dating the millennial 'metrosexual man'. A term born from heterosexual males, who actually love taking care of themselves, meticulously might I add. (c)iDiva A Metrosexual Man In Love The advent of the new technological era has brought a lot of significant changes into our lives. Our lifestyles have enhanced from simple caveman times to grooming every inch of ourselves just to look aptly presentable. So, when men took to doing that for themselves, a lot of questions were raised in society. Although it's an urban phenomena still, a man paying close attention to his looks and aesthetics, knowing how to dress well, performing beauty rituals on himself, isn't brandishing or tarnishing the 'manly' image. In fact, it's strengthening the unity that gender needs today. (c)Facebook Arnav, a man very comfortable in his skin, loves wearing all shades of pink, performing beauty routines on his skin and still being that 'emotionally available' guy every girl dreams of dating, is an unfortunate misunderstanding amongst the population today. Here's the thing. Many don't realise that calling someone “gay” due to anything but their sexual orientation is very problematic. For instance, if my boyfriend knows the difference between mauve and pink, that means he has great vision and not that he likes men- Stuti Even within the social constructs of such an unpleasant misunderstanding, Stuti and Arnav have the best relationship and they don't shy away from talking about it! Be it mutual skin care routine's or shopping trips, both enjoy each other's company because they bond with each other over mutual interests, that don't suffocate how one gender is suppose to be with the other. (c)Facebook I have never met a more loving and caring human being, and for that, I feel like the luckiest person alive. One of the most important, and least talked about aspects of a relationship is learning from each other, and I can very easily say that she's taught me so much about love -Arnav What She Fell In Love With The Most Stuti took some time to get to know Arnav. That's a given. But when she did, she found peace and love in him. He helped her deal with mental health issues by always staying by her side, in her time of need and never giving her a reason to question her worth again. But besides that, Stuti fell in love with the fact that her man was so comfortable with his sexuality, that he was indeed confident about how he demonstrated his sexuality. Of how he was open to things that a lot of men usually shy away from and that made her faith in the relationship stronger. (c)Facebook He likes his clothes fitted. He wears pink much better than I do. The strong sweet floral scent of Daisy by Marc Jacobs smells better on him than it smells on me. Does this take away from the fact that he identifies as a man, and is very much straight? It doesn't -Stuti But it took a while for Stuti to accept Arnav as who he was at first. The fact that his choices in life didn't eliminate the doubt that he might have 'gay' tendencies was something Stuti was struggling with initially. We're all moulded in a patriarchal structure. No matter how over-exposed we are to stimulus that redefines gender roles for us, we still go back to our conditioning every now and then and that's what Stuti did too. I struggled to accept the fact that my boyfriend is indeed a straight man who identifies as male. I wore the pants, I used Axe deodorant, and I shouted about equality, yet I was hypocritical enough to not accept his individual take on gender several times. -Stuti But in time, she realised that he was a man who loved taking care of himself and took a keen interest in his aesthetics. She didn't understand his love for lip balms, lotions, face masks or every shade of pink but she garnered an interest over her love for the fact that they both shared a similar interest. (c)Facebook Each man's process to survive is different. Some men like living a rugged and robust life, while some are keen on entertaining the way they look and appear and because we have such pronounced gender dynamics and roles, everything has to fall under a 'straight' line. But honestly, a 'metrosexual' man is as macho, as romantic, as arbit or as good in bed as any other man and we know that because we see Stuti' and Arnva's relationship blossom into something indestructible, everyday! This relationship has shown love to me in a totally different light. It's taught me how easy life is when you have someone who is actually there by your side, through every move. It's taught me to truly appreciate things, it's taught me the meaning of empathy and understanding. It's taught me to explore, to experiment, that there's so much that the world has to offer, when you have someone by your side to experience it with - Arnav
  21. Opens Instagram Sees a picture of a guy with a six-pack abs The bio reads Fitness Influencer/Lifetime Natural Checks posts All ab shots Closes Instagram and feels bad about self. How often have you found yourself doing this? See, going on a diet to get abs is not a bad thing at all. Losing fat generally is healthy for you and putting in the work to get lean is rewarding. But there is a difference between lean and shredded. Let me break it down for you: . Lean and athletic - 8 to 14% body fat . Shredded - Below 8% body fat The problem is that there are these enhanced and drugged bodybuilders who keep posting pictures of themselves looking shredded with rock-hard abs all year round, making you feel bad about yourself, even when you are lean. You are in a constant battle against yourself to stay shredded all year round like them. If you are building a physique without using any drugs for assistance (aka anabolic steroids), here are five reasons why trying to be shredded year round is plain stupid: © Pinterest 1. Your Testosterone Levels Will Take A Hit Dieting to a very low body fat percentage impacts your testosterone levels. Your hormones dip. It will impact your recovery, mood, and sexual health negatively. The reason guys on anabolics do not face this problem is them taking the hormones externally. They inject testosterone in supra-physiological doses on a weekly basis. Natural testosterone levels do not mean shit to them. 2. Constant Hunger Low body-fat means your hunger and satiety hormones are at a whack. Your leptin or satiety hormone is at an all-time low and your ghrelin or hunger hormone is at an all-time high. You are in a constant bad mood and cranky all the time. People around you do not like this side of you as well. 3. Too Restricted You will have to micro-manage every single meal that goes into your body to stay shredded. You will have to count every macro, weigh every food item, completely cut out every delicious food from your diet to be shredded. After a point, this becomes super stressful. You cannot focus on other things in life. You will be food obsessed. 4. Cannot Make Gains To gain muscle, you need to be in a calorie surplus and gain weight slow and steady. You will gain body fat. To be shredded and maintain your abs, you will need to be in a constant caloric deficit or at best, at your maintenance calories. As you see, these are two sides of a coin. You cannot have both. It is one or the other. Again, enhanced guys get bigger taking steroids is the hormones injected externally. © Pinterest 5. Body Image Issues A lot of well-known bodybuilders and fitness models have come out and spoken about this. Once you see your body look a certain way and you always desire to look that way, the obsession takes an ugly turn. A lot of athletes have admitted to being in a state of depression due to this. Attempting to stay shredded all year round is not just harmful to your physical health but also your mental health.

  23. Some men view it as an inconvenience and try to avoid it altogether, while some view it as an essential part of their everyday routine. It's even possible that you fall somewhere in the middle of these two opposing viewpoints and do it occasionally. Regardless of what your personal opinion on shaving is, the fact of the matter is that it's something almost all of us do. And at a time when bushy beards are all the rage, the clean shaven look can be seen as a breath of fresh air, which is why you'll find several celebrities and A-listers championing it at work, on the red carpet, and even on the sports field. As it happens, even the most bushiest of beards needs its fair share of maintenance, which requires even the whiskered gentleman to display a certain level of competence with the razor and invest in the best grooming products in order to maintain the tag of 'well groomed'. Why Do You Shave? Before you head off to shop for shaving supplies straightaway, you need to make sure you're stocking up on the right stuff. Whether you're shaving your whole face or carefully detailing around your beloved beard or moustache, the products you use can make quite a difference. If you're a fan of the clean shaven look and are willing to invest the time it takes to give yourself the smoothest possible shave everyday, you should look into finding a good shaving cream. However, if a couple of minutes before you rush off for work is all you can spare for your daily shave, then the right shaving foam is what you need. Why Shaving Foams? The major characteristic of a good shaving foam is that it allows for a quick, time-saving yet efficient shave, which is perfect for a man constantly on the go. Just splash your face with water and with a couple of sprays of the can, you instantly have a light, airy lather which is incredibly easy to apply, remove with the blade, and rinse away with the next splash of water. So, if you're looking for the best shaving foam to achieve a classy clean shaven look that's incredibly low maintenance, we've curated a helpful list for you to choose from.

  24. Yesterday, a FaceTime bug that would let users eavesdrop on call recipients went viral for all the wrong reasons and since then the company has disabled the feature for the time being. What people don't know is how the bug was discovered in the first place. Now you can answer for yourself on FaceTime even if they don't answerð¤#Apple explain this.. pic.twitter.com/gr8llRKZxJ — Benji Mobb™ (@BmManski) January 28, 2019 A teenager discovered the bug when he was trying to organise his friends to play the popular battle royale game 'Fortnite'. Grant Thompson, a 14-year-old high school student managed to discover the bug accidentally and has now become the hot topic of discussion. After already being in a call with his friend, Thompson tried to add another friend to the same call and discovered that he could hear his friend even though the phone call was unanswered. © Apple “We were pretty shocked at first because it was still ringing on his phone,” he told NBC News on Tuesday. “After that, we tested it for about half an hour to see if it worked every time.” My teen found a major security flaw in Apple's new iOS. He can listen in to your iPhone/iPad without your approval. I have video. Submitted bug report to @AppleSupport...waiting to hear back to provide details. Scary stuff! #apple #bugreport @foxnews — MGT7 (@MGT7500) January 21, 2019 Since the discovery, the teenager and his mother tried to alert Apple of the problem but did not get noticed by the company. The mother even tried to use a law firm's letterhead in a letter to get Apple's attention. When those efforts were met with no response, they then turned to the Apple bounty program where users are paid to find bugs in iOS. However, that didn't work out either as it required them to be registered as a developer and have the technical knowledge to file the bug report. Finally, they made a YouTube video which was later picked up by media outlets and went viral. Source: NBC News
