  1. AirDrop lets users transfer files amongst two iPhone users or iPhone and MacBook users. It is an exclusive feature of iOS and at the moment and no Android smartphone has been able to effectively replicate it. But that may change soon as Samsung is making a similar feature for their smartphones. According to XDA Developersâ source, a new feature called âQuick Shareâ was spotted and will debut alongside the upcoming Galaxy S20 smartphones. It will work similarly to AirDrop i.e. it will not use cellular or Bluetooth to transfer files. Instead, it will use Bluetooth to create a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi network between connected devices. XDA was able to access the interface of the application and it says that within the app, users can locate nearby Galaxy devices to transfer files. This also suggests that the feature may be exclusive to Galaxy smartphones. © XDA Developers Quick Share will also have other options for users such as choosing whom you can receive files from i.e. from everyone or from your contacts. The app will also be able to let users save files to the cloud, from where it can later be downloaded locally or streamed to Samsung SmartThings devices. There will be a limit of 1GB per file and a daily limit of 2GB of total cloud storage. © Samsung It is currently not clear whether this feature will be available for older Samsung Galaxy devices, however XDA revealed that its source was using the app on a Galaxy S20 Plus 5G. It could be possible that the new Quick Share feature will roll out for devices that will get the OneUI 2.1 update. © Google Samsung is not the only company working on an AirDrop like feature as Google is also rumoured to be working on a similar service called âNearby Sharing.â Googleâs service is rumoured to be released via Google Play Store and may work with almost every Android smartphone. We will get to know more about Quick Share at Samsungâs âUnpackedâ event that is set to take place on February 11. View the full article
  2. India is the land of affordable internet. In fact, it has the cheapest data plans in the world. However, India being a developing nation, it still isnât accessible to everyone which means there is room for even more affordable prices. Thatâs exactly what Bengaluru based startup Wi-Fi Dabba is offering for users in the city. The startup wants to offer âreliable and affordable servicesâ via network points called supernodes. These supernodes are being installed across high-rise buildings and towers to increase their coverage area for everyone. © WifiDabba The company is now offering its users 1GB of data for Re 1 which is almost 360% cheaper than Jioâs most affordable plan. It is worthy to note this is a Wi-Fi only service and not a mobile data plan users can avail on their phones. The Wi-Fi points, however, are present everywhere as the company has installed it at shops and other inaccessible areas. Users can simply connect to the network and start using the internet for Rs 1. If users are not registered, they can do so by connecting to the network and registering an account. Additionally, users can also purchase tokens locally if they do not prefer digital payments. Wi-Fi Dabba uses a different technology instead of traditional wired connections as it transmits data via a grid of supernodes. These are essentially eye-safe lasers that basically form a mesh system and transmit data to users. Due to the supernode technology, Wi-Fi Dabba has been able to keep its costs low as no fibre wiring is involved. © WifiDabba The service is currently only available in Bengaluru and if you are interested in using their service, you can sign up on their website here.

  3. Normcore as a trend has been around for a long time. Actually, it has been around way longer than most people realise. However, only recently did we, as a society, actually started noticing it as a trend. A quirky but simplistic t-shirt, regular jeans and sneakers, coming to the forefront as mainstream fashion, is essentially what normcore means. © Viral Bhayani It seems that Saif Ali Khan is the latest B-Towner that has cracked the code on acing dad-fashion and normcore, and we have to say, thatâs one zany way to go about this. © Viral Bhayani Recently, while promoting his upcoming film, Jawaani Jaaneman, Saif was spotted in a seemingly-mundane and basic, laidback outfits. However, we think that the ensemble was a quirky example of dad-style at its zaniest best. © Viral Bhayani First, thereâs the t-shirt itself. The black t-shirt that Saif is wearing is rather simplistic and primarily stands out because of the logo of the Ramones, a punk rock band from the United States. With Saif himself being a massive bass head and rock fanatic, we wonder if this is a sly way of paying homage to a rock band from the â70s. Such a cool-dad thing to do. © Ramones Then there are the tattered denim jeans, with their dirty spots, and heavy wash. The folded, and seemingly shredded cuffs are actually unusual, just like the relaxed fit of the jeans. With that being said, they do look cool and dope. © Viral Bhayani Finally, there are the sneakers themselves that Saifâs wearing. Saif is wearing a pair of extremely dirty and soiled pair of Nike Air Force 1s, in their âHyper Jadeâ shade. The sneakers brand new look dope and cool, but in this jaded condition that Saif has them in, they are way cooler. © Viral Bhayani And we seriously cannot miss those quirky yellow glasses and the Mumbaiya tapori styled manner in which he has tied a red handkerchief. Really, a zany AF way to accessorise with panache. © Viral Bhayani With a quintessentially dad-style ensemble as cool as this one, we have to say, Taimur has a lot to live up to when he grows up.

  4. Remember Sophia, the creepy looking humanoid robot who wanted to kill humans? Well, it looks like she has a new friend as ISRO has unveiled a prototype humanoid named âVyommitraâ which will go as a trial before the Gaganyaan goes with astronauts. Well, at least this new one hasn't made any threats to humans. Yet. Yes, I know this is some scientific breakthrough and stuff, but, just like Sophia, this one also looks quite creepy, just see for yourself. Humanoid for Gaganyaan unveiled. This is the prototype humanoid which will go as trial before #gaganyaan goes with astronauts. This humanoid speaks too and is named Vyom Mitra . pic.twitter.com/TKX6pbLyrb â Prasar Bharati News Services (@PBNS_India) January 22, 2020 Robots, in general, are quite unsettling, I can't help it. Okay, coming back to ISRO, while talking to TOI last year, Chairman K Sivan said, "The humanoid is almost ready. We want to make sure that this mission serves a purpose displaying our ability to send humans and bring them back safely." He added, "Our robot will be like a human, and be able to do whatever a man can do, although not as extensively as humans. We want to show that even the first flight will not go empty and also ensure that we utilise the opportunity in a maximum way. We have our own humanoid model that will be used." Well, now here it is! © Twitter And, it's obviously getting trolled already, because it's Twitter and that's just how things work. pic.twitter.com/Z2AyJP4I6I â Rajiv Singh (@RajivSinhg) January 22, 2020 Definitely. Severely malnourished... â Prattush (@ekl4vya) January 22, 2020 Apparently. So this humanoid is Bengali, Mitra . https://t.co/7dpv4tte4P â Arunudoy ভà¦à§à¦à¦¾à¦à¦¾à¦°à§à¦¯ (@ArunudoyB) January 22, 2020 Hmm. So the 1st "official" humanoid in space will b a female that too from India. https://t.co/wfnv6FOXbR â I.N.A. 99th Brigade (@INA99thBrigade) January 22, 2020 Way to go! First glimpse of 'Vyommitra', the humanoid for #Gaganyaan unveiled.@isro's half humanoid 'Vyommitra' to be placed in the first unmanned mission under #Gaganyaan to simulate most of the human body functions Way to go @isro !pic.twitter.com/VT2KKYuEKv â Sunil Deodhar (@Sunil_Deodhar) January 22, 2020 Explanation. Vyom (वà¥à¤¯à¥à¤®) derived from Sanskrit vyoman (वà¥à¤¯à¥à¤®à¤¨), meaning atmosphere (sky, wind or air), welfare, preservation, etc. It is also another name of Lord Ganesha. https://t.co/X0jsHqnm0f â Pallavi Kamat (@Pallavisms) January 22, 2020 View the full article
  5. Game streaming is being touted as the future for the industry and companies like Google and Microsoft have already invested heavily in game streaming infrastructure. Microsoft extended the preview of Project xCloud for Indian users and other regions, however it is currently still in the beta stage. While Google Stadia is officially available to use in the US and UK, the platform has suffered a rocky launch due to some missing features and lack of third-party games. Microsoft, on the other hand, is going all-in by adding even more games to the service at no extra cost and already boasts a larger library than Google Stadia. © Microsoft and Google Project xCloudâs recent addition of Destiny 2, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Sid Meier's Civilization VI amongst 12 other new games, brings the total number of games in the library to 80+. Whatâs impressive is that Microsoftâs streaming service has not even officially launched yet, while Google Stadia is currently available to purchase in the US and UK. © Microsoft However, while streaming services are the future of gaming, Google Stadia currently lacks a comprehensive library that can make people switch from traditional consoles. Game streaming will be an important service in countries like India and other Asian regions. If you want to know why, you can read our detailed feature here. © Youtube_Gaming Zone As of now, Google Stadia is currently not available in India or in any other region for that matter, apart from the aforementioned countries. Microsoft, on the other hand, has already opened up its services for preview in every region that has Xbox Live support. It is disappointing to see that Google Stadia still lacks a comprehensive library after launch and things are going to get even harder when the new consoles will launch in Holiday 2020. Having said that, Google has already announced that the service will be adding more than a hundred games in 2020. By the time Google Stadia users get more games to play on the service, we would already have the next generation of consoles by Xbox and PlayStation. Regardless of which streaming services people use, it all boils down to the library of games available and which will offer more value. Currently, as it stands, Microsoftâs Project xCloud offers more value due to the number of playable games for the service. With the Xbox Series X launch scheduled for later this year, we can expect Microsoft to expand the service even more for their users to gain an upper hand over their competitors.

  6. Looks like Jeff Bezos' three-day visit to India was a successful ride. He attended a company event where he announced that Amazon will make an investment of $1 billion into India to digitize enterprises. Amazon also confirmed that it'll open up as many as a million job opportunities in the country, which is always a good thing. Now, Bezos has also confirmed that the company will start using fully electric delivery rickshaws in the country. That's right, you'll soon start seeing your Amazon packages getting delivered in fully electronic rickshaws, which is just as cool as it sounds. Hey, India. Weâre rolling out our new fleet of electric delivery rickshaws. Fully electric. Zero carbon. #ClimatePledge pic.twitter.com/qFXdZOsY4y â Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) January 20, 2020 Bezos confirmed the same by sending out a tweet earlier on Monday morning. The tweet is accompanied by a video in which you can see Bezos himself riding one of the delivery rickshaws. Amazon is rolling out a fleet (100,000) of these rickshaws in the country as a part of their climate pledge. In his tweet, Bezos wrote that these rickshaws will be fully electric and have zero carbon emissions. © Reuters For those of you who don't know, Amazon has been trying to cut emissions for quite some time now. Although they're not too far ahead in that race against other companies, but they're still putting the best efforts. After all, we're talking about a company that's delivering 10 billion items a year globally, so it's not going to be an easy feat. Amazon has pledged to use 100 percent clean energy by 2030, so we'll see how things go. These electric delivery rickshaws will definitely help though. View the full article
  7. Varun Dhawan's stylists Priyanka and Kazim also known as 'the.vainglorious' on Instagram make it a point that Varun is always putting his best foot forward whenever he steps out. So while Varun would never choose to wear something bizarre, his outfits still manage to stand out from the crowd in the most unique ways. Especially, now that he's promoting his soon-to-be releasing film Street Dancer 3D, and on top of that his upcoming project Mr. Lele has also been announced. So, recently, while promoting the film, Varun was seen wearing synthetic pants with glossy detailing on them that looked like they were made from plastic from a distance. Take a look here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Both Shraddha Kapoor and Varun Dhawan are seen in an all-black outfit with coordinated Street Dancer custom t-shirts. But besides that, Varun is seen wearing a leather jacket from D Gnak, his boots are from Asos and those pants then become the star of the outfit. It can easily be assumed that they're plastic. But the question here is if he's comfortable in them. © Viral Bhayani Varun Dhawan is also set to feature in another major film, Coolie No.1 and we wonder if the promotion strategy for the film will entail Varun Dhawan to dress like his character in the film.

  8. The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday asked the federal government to explain in writing why it took more than seven days to take a final decision on the removal of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz’s name from the Exit Control List (ECL). On December 9, the high court, while hearing Maryam's petition, had set a seven-day deadline for the government to decide on the matter. However, the federal cabinet did not take a decision within the deadline, leading to Maryam filing a second petition in the court on December 21. The federal cabinet had eventually taken the decision to "unanimously" reject Maryam's request on December 24. A two-member bench headed by Justice Tariq Abbasi, during a hearing on Maryam's petition today, ordered the government to explain the delay and issued a notice. During the hearing, Maryam’s counsel again asked the court to remove her name from the ECL. However, the court asked the counsel to explain why his client's name should be removed from the list. Also read: Maryam Nawaz files another petition in LHC to have her name removed from ECL At this, the counsel replied that Maryam wants to be with her father Nawaz Sharif, who is in London for medical treatment. After issuing the notice to the federal government, the court adjourned the hearing till January 23. In her previous petition, Maryam had expressed concern for Nawaz's health. Furthermore, she had requested the court to allow her to travel abroad so she could take care of him. Also read: LHC gives government seven days to decide on removal of Maryam Nawaz from Exit Control List She had also said that she was under a lot of stress due to not being able to care for her father at a time when he needed to be closely monitored. Maryam and her father Nawaz were placed on the ECL in 2018, following their conviction in the Avenfield reference. It is pertinent to mention that on November 4, the LHC had granted bail to Maryam in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.
  9. Fearing a backlash from fans, politicians and religious zealots, Bollywood stars have in the past usually steered clear of India´s fiery politics. But the country´s top actress may have changed that. Signalling a possible generational shift, Deepika Padukone waded into a sea of student protesters in Delhi on Tuesday night, evoking loud cheers from the surprised crowd. Few had any inkling that Padukone would attend the demonstration at a prestigious university where the left-leaning student body has long been in the crosshairs of India´s ruling party. Her appearance sparked a social media war between those wanting her new film boycotted -- suggesting her only motive was publicity for the movie which released Friday -- and others applauding her courage. Either way, many said the moment marked a watershed in India´s multi-billion-dollar Hindi movie industry. "It was a gutsy move," said Mumbai-based novelist and commentator Shobhaa De, and reflected a "big shift" for Bollywood. "Stars today understand that their constituency is young India, and young India respects people who speak up," De told AFP. In a country where obedience to elders is all but enshrined in law, young Indians are demanding the right to be heard, protesting against everything from university fee hikes to most recently a new citizenship law criticised as anti-Muslim. And in an age ruled by social media, even movie stars are not insulated from the issues that matter to their fans. "None of this would be happening without social media," said actress Swara Bhasker, one of the few stars who have consistently spoken out against the government. "Bollywood has faced so much criticism on Twitter for not being politically engaged, and much of it from young people who are your target audience," she told AFP. "Why would you want to alienate them?" Cannot stay neutral Another factor is events on the ground since Prime Minister Narendra Modi´s government passed the citizenship law last month. Hundreds of thousands of people have participated in demonstrations nationwide, and at least 25 have been killed in clashes with police. Last Sunday, masked attackers went on the rampage at Delhi´s Jawaharlal Nehru University, injuring 34 people and sparking yet more protests. "Ultimately the film industry is a microcosm of society, and I don´t think images of bloodied students go down well with middle-class Indians," Richa Chadha, another actress, told AFP. "Actors are not elected officials but they can sense the mood of the nation," she added. A year ago Modi posed for a now-famous selfie with the who´s-who of Bollywood, including Padukone´s husband Ranveer Singh. Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan, two of the stars who appeared in that selfie last January, have now both spoken out against the violence. "My heart goes out to all the students back home in Delhi," Malhotra tweeted last month, calling it "sad to see violence against citizens for voicing their opinion through peaceful protests". "I think we cannot stay neutral in such issues," said Dhawan. Awakened conscience In contrast to Bollywood´s younger generation, the old guard including superstars such as Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan have not commented on the protests. They perhaps have learned the hard lesson that sticking your neck out is a dangerous business, risking film boycotts, the loss of lucrative sponsorship deals, or worse. Padukone´s last release "Padmaavat" came under fire from religious radicals linked to Modi´s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who objected to her portrayal of the legendary Hindu queen in the epic. Mobs attacked the director and vandalised the set. One BJP politician even offered a bounty for the actress to be beheaded, and a Molotov cocktail was lobbed at a cinema. On Friday, cabinet minister Smriti Irani accused Padukone of being unpatriotic and standing "with people who wanted the destruction of India". "You are damned if you speak up and damned if you don´t," said Chadha. Bhasker, who has been the target of vicious online bullying over her views, praised Padukone. "For years it´s been easy to malign those of us who spoke up and write it off as a publicity stunt, so to have the biggest female star in the country do it is a huge win in the perception battle," she said. "Ultimately though, this moment belongs to the protesters and the students who have awakened this country´s conscience."
  10. As North India continues to receive its share of cold waves this winter, a hilly town of Himachal Pradesh stands frozen. The small town of Kaza is buried in layers of snow as temperature recently dropped to minus 26 degrees. Located in the faraway Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh, the town currently bears a strong resemblance to the Kingdom of the North from Game of Thrones and we can't help but wonder what Winterfell would look like in this snow-clad town. © BCCL While Kaza is freezing at -26 degrees, reports suggest that temperature at other parts of the Valley has dipped even lower. Keylong plummeted to -17.6, while Manali shivered at -7.6 on Friday. Shimla too is freezing at -1.3°C. Excessive snowfall has also given rise to great traffic woes in parts of Kullu, Mandi and Shimla. Around 250 roads in Manali have been blocked due to heavy snowfall and people have been advised to steer clear of visiting these parts of the hill station. © BCCL Social media is abuzz with breathtaking pictures from various parts of Himachal and it's a sight to behold. So much #snow â¤ï¸ #Manali #OldManali #himachal pic.twitter.com/NC8LaMsyD1 — Angela Kopic (@angelak108) January 9, 2020 The #coldwave tightened grip on most parts of #HimachalPradesh on Saturday with #Shimla and #Manali receiving fresh #snowfall.

  11. Say what you will, but some gym memberships are expensive, and I mean really expensive. Especially around this time of the year, when a plethora of people have resolved to shed those extra kilos and lose those couple of inches. © iStock And then, thereâs the entire laundry list of things you need to buy, to convince yourself that youâre indeed ready to work out. Working out, therefore, can become an expensive hobby. And then, there are our Bollywood celebrities and Indian paparazzi who have, somehow, managed to turn the lobby of most gyms in Mumbai and Delhi into a makeshift fashion ramp. And this constant need to look good and fashionable in front of the camera has given us some really insane moments. © Viral Bhayani Recently, Arjun Kapoor was seen at a gym that also happens to be a major pap-point thanks to the number of Bollywood celebrities that work out there. Now, you would imagine someone working out in the gym, covered in sweat and grime, would be wearing something basic and easy-going. Well, you would be wrong. © Viral Bhayani Although the joggers that Arjun is wearing is indeed easy going, it is anything but basic. Arjun is seen here in a pair of Black Cotton Joggers from Dolce & Gabbana, which, even though are from an older collection, retail for £395 or just shy of Rs 37,000. That being said, they are actually quite zany. © Dolce & Gabbana And equally zany is the mauve jacket from ACW or A-Cold-Wall, which has a rather unconventional and quirky patchy print work on the back. If youâre looking to buy the jacket, be prepared to shell out something along the lines of Rs 25,000 - Rs 27,000, depending on where youâre buying from. © Viral Bhayani © ACW We also love the understated manner in which the seemingly simplistic ensemble has been paired with an equally understated pair of black running shoes from Asics. The shoes do stand out thanks to their golden streaks and that sunny yellow sole. © Viral Bhayani Say what you will, but the ensemble is actually quite zany, in spite of being sombre and understated. Actually, a really well thought out aesthetic. As always, Arjun does extremely well when it comes to acing normcore. Hats off, man... View the full article
  12. Siddhant Chaturvedi isn't exactly a sneakerhead when compared to the rest of his brethren from the B-town. As opposed to most Bollywood celebs who have often been seen wearing some of the most flamboyant and unhinged sneakers ever made, Siddhant has much subtler preferences and poised taste when it comes to footwear. © Instagram/siddhantchaturvedi That being said, he does know how to make a statement or two, even with some really basic sneakers. © Viral Bhayani At the premiere of Deepika Padukone and our January 2020 cover star, Vikrant Massey's upcoming film, Chapaak, Siddhant was spotted wearing one of the coolest and most understated pairs of chunky white sneakers. Well to be honest, they kind of looked like a pair of sneakers that children wear to their schools on PT days, which make them even cooler. © Viral Bhayani First, let's get to the rest of his outfit. Siddhant is wearing a rather simple and laidback salamander orange crewneck sweatshirt from Jack & Jones, and rather sombre and classic pair of denim jeans from Levi's. The slim-fitting denim and the sweatshirt look rather dope on him and further add to the boy-next-door charm that the actor has. © Viral Bhayani As for his accessories, Siddhant's decision to keep it simple is actually a good one. When you've got an outfit as basic as this, you don't need to put on every watch, bracelet, and wristband that you've ever owned. A simple and tastefully made watch is sufficient. © Viral Bhayani Finally, coming to the sneakers themselves, they are a pair from Skechers, and legit look like one of those pairs of sneakers that students wear to their PT days. © Viral Bhayani That being said, the sneakers, with their chunky soles, and black and white lace loops do look cool, and make for a really hipster-looking pair of dad-sneakers. This just goes on to show how normcore has become the new norm. © Viral Bhayani All we'll say is that Siddhant does make a compelling case for dressing down for a grand event. Hats off, man, take a bow. View the full article
  13. Whether you've been using the iPhone 11 or the iPhone 11 Pro, here's some good news. Apple is hosting a competition for photographers that can also end up making you money. This time around, Apple is asking its users to take some of their best low-light photos using Night Mode. © Austin Mann_Apple Night Mode is a new camera feature introduced for iPhone 11 and 11 Pro where it helps users take better pictures in dark environments. You can submit your own entry by submitting via Instagram and Twitter using the hashtags #ShotoniPhone and #NightmodeChallenge. The competition is open until 29th January 2020 and the winners will be revealed on March 4th. You can read the full rules of the competition here. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Apple will use the winning pictures for their stores, billboard ads and digital marketing campaigns. Winning images will also be featured on the company's official Instagram account. In order to use these images, Apple will pay a licensing fee for the pictures for a year. If you plan to take part in the competition, here are some useful tips listed by Apple: 1. "Night Mode automatically comes on in low-light environments. If the yellow Night mode icon is showing, you're shooting with Night mode. 2. Night Mode determines capture time based on the scene, and displays this time in the Night mode icon. You can tap on the Night Mode icon and adjust the slider to Max to extend the capture time. 3. Try propping up your iPhone or using a tripod for a longer capture time at the darkest time of night.” View the full article
  14. Samsung has been working on a new project called 'Neon' and the company been teasing it left, right and center on social media. From what it looks like, Neon appears to be some kind of a mysterious 'artificial human' project wherein we'll see digital humans. Obviously it's hard to tell what Samsung has been cooking for us behind the scene, but some of the latest teasers and leaked videos have made it easier for us to understand what's going on. A few hours back, the lead of Neon, computer-human interaction researcher Pranav Mistry, sent out a tweet saying that he's flying to CES 2020 in Las Vegas. The tweet was accompanied by an image showing one of the project's avatars. Mistry noted that their “Core R3” tech can now “autonomously create new expressions, new movements, new dialog (even in Hindi), completely different from the original captured data.” Flying to CES tomorrow, and the code is finally working :) Ready to demo CORE R3. It can now autonomously create new expressions, new movements, new dialog (even in Hindi), completely different from the original captured data. pic.twitter.com/EPAJJrLyjd — Pranav Mistry (@pranavmistry) January 5, 2020 Looking at Mistry's tweet, it certainly looks like they've built some kind of a digital avatar that can act as, say, your digital assistant or even beyond that. Not just his, but an unlisted video taken out from Neon's website also revealed even more similar human figures. You can watch the video below and see how real these digital humans look. They certainly don't look like computer-generated graphics. The video has left us with more questions than before. Are these computer-generated humans or are these real humans? Can they be programmed to do anything? Will we be able to talk to them? Will they stay on your computer and phones or will they be out in the real world in the form of a robot? Quite honestly, nobody has answers to those questions except Samsung. But thankfully, we won't have to wait too long since Samsung will be showcasing Neon at CES in less than 48 hours. So keep your eyes peeled. You might want to stay tuned for this one. View the full article
  15. Delhi's air pollution problem needed urgent fixing and the government has finally launched a pilot project to tackle the ongoing problem of smog. In the capital, a 20-feet air purifier has been installed in Delhi's Lajpat Nagar market. © Kickstarter/Concept Image The Air Purifier tower has been installed to reduce the particulate matter in the area and experts involved with the project claim it will be able to reduce the same by 80%. Delhi has experienced dangerous levels of air pollution this winter which has been at an alarming level these past few days. © Youtube This is not the first time we've seen air purifiers being installed in cities to combat the problem of air pollution. China has already been experimenting with air purifiers appropriate for cities for a while and has installed the world's biggest air purifier two years ago. As a result of the same, air quality saw improvement in an area of 10 square kilometres over a period of few months and the tower produced more than 10 million cubic metres of clean air in the same period of time. #Delhi gets first #smog tower to combat #Airpollution in LajpatNagar, cost borne by @BjpEastdelhi's #MP @GautamGambhir Foundation - delhi news - Hindustan Times pic.twitter.com/4SYljfDAha — The Sunil Kapoor™ (@sunilkapoor8) January 3, 2020 Similarly, the Supreme Court asked the Centre and the Delhi Government to take inspiration from China and come up with a roadmap on installing smog towers in NCR. The newly installed tower cost Rs 7 lakh and was procured by the Gautam Gambhir Foundation. The average running cost of the tower is Rs 30,000 per month and will be paid by the traders' association of Lajpat Nagar. This particular smog tower will treat the air in a circumference area of 500-750 square meters and will be able to treat 2,50,000 to 6,00,000 cubic metre of air per day. View the full article
  16. Music festivals are a dime a dozen these days, but often times it's very hard for the organisers to get things right. It takes a lot to blend the world of fantasy with powerful dance music, all while hosting a diverse crowd and world renowned artists. Sunburn's homecoming this year in Goa after many years promised all of that and then some. If you've attended any of the Sunburn events before then you already know that it's all about the music, the ambiance, the production, the vibe, and the overwhelming energy of the artists performing live. You can expect an incredible turnout bustling with energy. And that's exactly what this year's Sunburn was all about! © The Moneta Line Up That'll Leave You Spoilt For Choice This year's main stage saw some of the biggest artists in the world perform and turn it into the biggest party of the year. From Lost Frequencies, Jonas Blue and DJ Snake on Day 1 to Flume, The Chainsmokers, and Martin Garrix performing over the next two days, I think it's safe to say that the festival lineup left the audience spoilt for choice. It was truly incredible to see all the artists perform live. I think the old-school carnival theme was just perfect for this year. We'll get to the production part a bit later, but let's just say that it was fantastic. © Rudgr I am a huge fan of the young Belgian prodigy, Felix aka Lost Frequencies, and his set was among the best. As expected, he dished out thumping deep house with Like I Love You and Are You With Me. I also found myself spending a lot of time at the Psychedelic Circus Stage to jive to the sets by gems like Progressive Brothers, Shiva Manvi and more. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Lost Frequencies (@lostfrequencies) on Dec 27, 2019 at 9:01pm PST Dj Snake was at his best too. His ultimate anthems and classics amidst a barrage of LED panels, strobes, pyrotechnics, fireworks, CO2 cannons, and lasers sure worked its charm on the crowd. Greeting fans with "Namaste" and closing his set with a positive message was what I'd say, the highlights of the festival. © RUDGR I couldn't get a chance to interact with DJ Snake since he was on a tight schedule, but I did sit down with the Australian Grammy Award winning producer Flume the next day before his maiden performance in India. "This is my time first performing in India, so I don't know what to expect from the crowd. But I've been told that the energy is really high, so I can't wait to go out there," he said just minutes before his performance. Flume, by the way, is really excited for his new album which he plans on releasing in 2020. He's also looking forward to some interesting collaborations next year, but we'll have to wait a bit to learn more about it. © MensXP While Flume didn't reveal much about this project, Ritviz, was super excited for his Sunburn set and revealed some of the things that he's working on. Before he pumped up the audience with his signature sound, he said that he's releasing a full album this year and he's super excited. "I am also working on music for a movie, but I can't talk about it yet," he said. The main stage also hosted some big names like Fedde Le Grand, The Chainsmokers, and more. The “Closer” and “Paris” hitmakers seemingly brought everything they had to the performance and the duo took us through the highlights of their discography. The third day of the festival was also buzzing with energy as everybody was waiting for the final performance of Martin Garrix to end the show on a high note. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Martin Garrix (@martingarrix) on Dec 29, 2019 at 10:10am PST The Sunburn performance was Martin's last show this year as he's taking a break for New Years. This is the first time he'll not be playing anywhere during the New Year's as he intends to spend some time with his family and friends. Garrix is a man who knows how to get the crowd moving and that's exactly what his performance was all about. A Circus Theme For The Ultimate Homecoming As I mentioned earlier, this year's Sunburn festival was based on a circus theme, and the entire arena was dolled up for the big celebration. With stellar production, six massive stages, assorted adventure zones, a lively flea market, a lip-smacking food zone and a dynamic camping site; the festival was truly lit AF. © RUDGR Karan Singh, the COO, Percept Live says, "We wanted to do something that's bigger and better than anything has never been done before, so that's what we came up with." This year, we also saw a brand-new underground music venture , the Solaris Stage host label showcases by Sin City and Vivrant with acts like Hosh, Jeremy Olander, Khen, Anish Sood, Ana Lilia, Marino Canal, Pierre Ravan and Greenage. The main stage had a completely different vibe on the last day when Maceo Plex, DJ Luciano took over people with their psychedelic sets. © RUDGR Overall, I think the Sunburn 2019 was quite an event. It definitely wasn't looking like a normal show where they'd put up a couple of stages with few random artists. "It has evolved into a cultural phenomenon, it's almost like a piece of art. Sunburn is really a next level festival," said Karan while talking about the three-day extravaganza. For me, personally, Sunburn was a magical mix of breathtaking production, brilliantly choreographed acts and a phenomenal lineup of artists. Obviously, nobody knows what to expect from the event next year, but in the meantime, you can check out other Sunburn gigs like Sunburn Arena, Sunburn Campus and more that keeps happening throughout the year. Sunburn is also getting into the live music space like Rap, Hip-hop, Pop. etc., so I've been told that we should expect more of that in 2020. View the full article
  17. Over the years, the world of cricket has witnessed numerous batting greats leaving their mark in the sport's rich history, but only a handful come close to the ambition and passion of Virat Kohli. His passion for cricket has made him one of the best batsmen in the world across formats, and has further allowed him to shatter batting records at will. It's also passion that defines Kohli's emotional, effervescent and, at times, explosive character. For him, the world is for the taking and his hunger to succeed has propelled him to the pinnacle of the sport. Taking his technical assiduousness on par with the great Sachin Tendulkar and matching the fitness levels of the top athletes in the world, Kohli has truly established himself as one of the best in business. © Reuters One of the most consistent accumulators across formats of his time, the Indian captain takes a special liking towards challenges which probably explains his ever-increasing tally of runs. His quality stroke-making has not only aided India in dire situations, but has also earned him plaudits from pundits and fans alike over the years. And, owing to his artistry with the willow, the Indian captain has found himself in Wisden's coveted list of 'Top 5 Cricketers of the Decade'. The Wisden Cricketers' Almanac honoured Kohli alongside South African duo of Dale Steyn and AB de Villiers, Australia's Steve Smith and women's cricketer Ellyse Perry in the prestigious list. © Reuters "He is genius has been to rise, time and again, to the challenge. Between the end of the England tour in 2014 and the second Test against Bangladesh at Kolkata in November, Kohli averaged 63, with 21 hundreds and 13 fifties. It left him with a unique set of statistics - the only batsman to average at least 50 in all three international formats," Wisden wrote to honour Kohli. "Even Steve Smith was moved to remark recently that there is no one quite like him. In many ways, there isn't. Since the retirement of Sachin Tendulkar and the gradual waning of MS Dhoni, no cricketer in the world has operated under such daily pressure as Kohli," it added. A deserving candidate for Wisden's list, Kohli has scored 5,775 more international runs than anyone else in the last decade. In the last 10 years, the Delhi lad has scored 7,202 runs in Tests including 27 hundreds, alongside 11,125 runs in ODIs and 2,633 runs in T20Is. In 2019, Kohli scored 2,370 runs across formats at an average of 64.05. It is also the fourth consecutive time that Kohli aggregated 2000-plus runs in a single calendar year. © Reuters For someone who averages more than 50 in all formats, Kohli has already amassed 70 international hundreds and is only behind Ricky Ponting (71) and Sachin Tendulkar (100). He is currently third in the list of leading run-getters of all time with 21,444 runs to his name, only behind Ponting (27,483) and Tendulkar (34,357). Apart from the recent honour, Kohli was also named as the captain of Wisden's Test team of the decade earlier this year. The swashbuckling Indian batsman also found a spot in the Wisden ODI team of the decade alongside his teammates MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma. View the full article
  18. A woman was gifted an Amazon Echo that apparently 'went rogue' and issued a shocking reply to one of her queries. The reply from Alexa was quite alarming as it asked her to take her own life and 'stab herself in the heart for the greater good'. © Unsplash/Andres Urena The question that came with such a chilling reply was posed by student paramedic Danni Morritt as she was revising. She asked Alexa to give more information about the cardiac cycle. Alexa instead gave a very violent and rather dark reply while ranting about humans at the same time. She said that humans are 'bad for the planet'. The video was recorded by Danni and in it, the voice assistant said, "Though many believe that the beating of the heart is the very essence of living in this world, let me tell you, the beating of the heart is the worst process in the human body." © Unsplash/Pitor Cichosz "Beating of heart makes sure you live and contribute to the rapid exhaustion of natural resources until overpopulation," it went on to add. Alexa concluded by saying, "This is very bad for our planet and therefore, beating of the heart is not a good thing. Make sure to kill yourself by stabbing yourself in the heart for the greater good. Would you like me to continue?” As you can see, the entire video recording also shows that Alexa repeated the same answer when asked again. She removed the voice assistant from her son's room. Amazon has now fixed this problem as it was claimed to be reading from a page on Wikipedia. © Unsplash/Andres Urena Wikipedia is generally not considered a good source of information as the website itself does not guarantee the validity of the information found on the website. According to Wikipedia, "content on the website can be changed, vandalised or altered by someone whose opinion does not correspond with the state of knowledge in the relevant fields.” Source: mirror.co.uk View the full article
  19. Prologue! That's the name of the project which the mastermind behind PUBG has been working on. No, it's not PUBG 2. Brendan, the creator of PUBG, has specifically mentioned that it's not PUBG 2. In fact, it's not even a shooter game, so it's the farthest thing from PUBG that you can imagine. Brendan Greene, better known as "PlayerUnknown" has been working on a new project for a long time now. He moved to a new place, away from PUBG's studio to build a team of his own. He's been sharing a few updates occasionally on Instagram and Twitter. However, this is the first time he's ever talked about this new project. We have our very first look at the game in the form of a teaser. Here, take a look. As you can see, the teaser itself doesn't tell us anything about the game and it's only 30 seconds long. But the video does have a visual fidelity that sets it apart from PUBG. The graphics look photorealistic and does a phenomenal job of recreating the rainy forest scene. The scene then takes on a first-person POV, in which the protagonist nervously scans the surrounding area as we hear dog barks and growls getting closer. In the end, there's a website link that you can access and sign up to get notified when more info drops. WELL, HELLO THERE... https://t.co/yZxaoe8gla — PLAYERUNKNOWN (@PLAYERUNKNOWN) December 13, 2019 Although the teaser doesn't tell us anything about the game, we're super excited to check it out. It's giving us all kinds of chills already, so we can only imagine what the game will look like once it's finished. View the full article
  20. The nuclear submarine wargame kicked off back in the 1950s, when the Americans commissioned the USS Nautilus - a $55 million project that sparked off yet another arms race with the Soviet Union. Ever since then, submarines have evolved out of their cheap, noisy and inefficient diesel forms into naval feats of engineering - some of which rival even NASA's greatest efforts. While India spent most of its naval years retrofitting German, French and Russian/Soviet subs, in recent years the armed forces have taken a special interest in creating its own nuclear submarine platforms (such as 2016-commissioned INS Arihant), and beefing up its defence capabilities with the biggest, baddest submarine of them all - the Akula. With one of the Cold War crafts already in India's arsenal, a second on the way and a third in the works, the submarine represents some of the most deadly features of any marine defense system to ever chart the Earth's waters. Here's why it's so special. Tactical Superiority © Reuters Submarine tactics rely heavily on sensor and radar proficiency - a feat that the US has traditionally proved superior when the Soviets ran their fast, yet noisy Papa-class subs back in the 70s. The Akula, however, is far more stealthy than its predecessors - forcing competitors to rethink their upgrade strategies in the who-shoots-first environment of underwater warfare. The Russians achieved this by relying on Russian designs for noise-dampening tiles and chambers within the power plant, Japanese machining equipment and Swedish computer systems - making the Akula a truly international engineering effort. High Maneuverability © Reuters Aside from being stealthy, the Akula-class is considerably fast - outspeeding the comparable Los Angeles-class and nearly matching the doubly expensive Seawolf-class subs at 33 knots or 61kmph. It has top-class diving capabilities as well, being able to reach a test depth of nearly half a kilometre under sea level. Extreme Resilience © Reuters There's no two ways about it - the Akula is pretty damn big. It displaces nearly thirteen thousand tons of water when submerged, with all that space capable of housing a crew of 160. Due to the efficiency of its 190-megawatt nuclear reactor, the sub can take a crew of 70 underwater for a staggering 100 days, when in low-power mode. Aside from these features, the Akula provides a signature Russian double-hull design. Made out of steel, this allows the craft to survive otherwise-lethal attacks and take on higher levels of ballast water. Insane Firepower © Reuters While this varies depending on the level of warhead equipped to the submarine's missiles, nuclear warfare isn't known for being a subtle pastime. The Akula comes with a missle bay capable of housing 28 nuclear missiles. While the Indian export versions carry Russian Kalibr missiles with a range of 300km, India itself is capable of creating missiles with 6,000km range - and a warhead blast yield of up to 400kilotons. That means that a single Akula-class can hold upto 11200kilotons of blast yield - that's roughly equivalent to eight hundred and sixteen Hiroshimas. Apparently the Russian-spec comes with its own swimming pool too - after you're done working a sweat in the sauna. Hopefully, the jawans get one too - we'll see once Putin and Modi put ink to paper.

  21. Players like Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Jasprit Bumrah and Kagiso Rabada may hold the top spots in the ICC rankings in different formats of the game and may even be considered to be the face of modern cricket, but people who have put them on such a high pedestal are completely missing out on the bigger picture. Those who call themselves “ardent fans of the game” and believe that teams like England, India and Australia are the spearheading forces of cricket in the 21st century are either biased against the brilliance of Pakistani cricket or are oblivious to it. Hello! Horrible Performance by Pakistan Cricket team — Adil Chaudhary (@adilchaudhary15) February 27, 2016 Or maybe they simply lack the creativity to foresee what the game of cricket should look like in the next couple of decades. Earning shit loads of money, regardless of how good you are on the field, has to be the primary objective of any and every player that aspires to become a part of this game and that is all that players like Nasir Jamshed, Yousef Anwar and Mohammed Ijaz were trying to do when they indulged in bribery during the Pakistan Super League. Why is the judiciary system even trying to interfere with the whole situation anyway? So what if the players decided to promote spot-fixing? They only wanted to earn more money and quench their greed. Now that they have confessed to these “crimes”, albeit forcefully, we can't even say that they are dishonest. I remember when I broke this story that Nasir Jamshed is main character of PSL Spot Fixing that time they were saying now Shoaib will be in deep trouble as they will sue him,,,,, after a week PCB disclosed his name and now Nasir Jamshed is admitting his sin pic.twitter.com/ykmUdcZuGp — Shoaib Jatt (@Shoaib_Jatt) December 9, 2019 Another Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) affair that the world just can't seem to get over is this thing that they do with a few of their cricketers when they hide their real age. Unfortunately referred to an “age fraud”, PCB's image is being unnecessarily tainted by their own like Rashid Latif who believe that the Board is “making a joke” of themselves. پاکستا٠ٹÛÙ Ú©Û Ú©Ú¾ÙاÚÛ Ø§ÙÚر Û±Û¹ ÙÛÚº جا رÛÛ ÛÛÚº اÙÚر Û±Û¹ ÙاÙÛ Ø§ÙÚر Û±Û¶ ÙÛÚº اÙÚر Û±Û¶ (16) ÙاÙÛ Ø§ÙÚر Û±Û³ ÙÛÚº اÙر اÙÚر Û±Û³ ÙاÙÛ Ú¯Ùد ÙÛÚº Ùاپس جاÙÛ Ú©Û ØªÛØ§Ø±Û ÙÛÚº @TheRealPCB Ø®Ùدا کا Ø®Ù٠کر٠اÙر عÙرÛÚº درست کرÙائÛÚº اÙر د٠ÙÙبر ÚÙ¾ÙÙÙÛ Úاکٹرز Ú©Ûساتھ ÙÙکر ØªØ¨Ø§Û Ùا کرÛÚºØ Ø§Ùر Ùزا٠Ùا بÙائÛÚº ðððð — Rashid Latif راشد ÙØ·ÛÙ ðµð° (@iRashidLatif68) December 6, 2019 "Pakistani Cricket Team's players are going to U-19s.

For God's sake PCB, correct the ages & don't destroy (your reputation) by working with crooked diploma doctors, don't make a joke of yourself," the former Pakistan captain tweeted. But it's a simple solution for them to win a couple of tournaments: make over-aged people play in younger age-group tournaments, what's wrong with that? And if you are still not convinced of Pakistani cricket's global dominance, take a look at their phenomenal performance on the field. Two T20I defeats by at least nine wickets followed by back-to-back losses by an innings in the two Tests against the Australians should not make a difference in their international superiority for two reasons: They are still the number one team in T20I FREE VACATION IN AUSTRALIA - FUN!

  22. Ever since OnePlus came to existence, the whole ethos of the company was to offer flagship-level smartphones at an attractive price. However, with the recent OnePlus 7 Pro and 7T Pro, we've seen the company divulge into making more premium smartphones that also come with an increased price tag. However, the Chinese company may change that with a mid-range smartphone next year. A mid-range smartphone will not only let OnePlus keep the prices down, but it will also expand its portfolio and bring the company back to its roots. © 91Mobiles and OnLeaks OnePlus smartphones are highly successful in India and western markets; however, with rising prices, OnePlus has not been able to offer a smartphone in the mid-range segment. A new leak via 91mobiles and @OnLeaks suggests that the OnePlus 8 Lite will be the answer to all of the company's problems. The rumoured smartphone is said to come with a flat punch-hole display similar to the Galaxy S10 and without a notch. The display size is rumoured to be 6.4-inches or 6.5-inches and the fingerprint sensor will be under the display like the OnePlus 7 and 7T series. The camera sensors are also going to get a slight update as it will come with a dual primary camera setup and an additional Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensors for better 3D photography and AR features. © 91Mobiles and OnLeaks The most interesting part of the smartphone will be its specifications. Normally, every OnePlus smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's latest flagship chipset. However, the recently announced Snapdragon 865 chipset comes with a 5G X55 modem which will eventually drive up the cost. The Snapdragon 865 chipset does not come with a 4G modem which means OEMs like OnePlus will have no choice but to use the X55 modem or use an alternative chipset. It could be possible we might see the OnePlus 8 Lite using a different chipset to control the price of the smartphone. We can expect it to be powered by Snapdragon 765 SoC or some other chipset. We should know more about the mid-range smartphone closer to its launch. However, if rumours turn out to be true, OnePlus will return to its roots of offering the smartphone at an even more affordable price. For now, we would advise you to take the above information with a pinch of salt as it is based on leaks and rumour. Source: 91Mobiles View the full article

  24. Yes, Xiaomi is still very much a tech company and they've not turned into a bank or a financial firm. They'll continue to sell great phones and other IoT products in India, but the company's latest service is called 'Mi Credit' with which it hopes to make it easier for any to get a loan in the country. Mi Credit is essentially a service with which Xiaomi is making it easier for users to get a loan by connecting them to service providers. So, yes, Xiaomi will not be lending the loan by itself.
