  1. It's a dream for all gamers to own as many games as possible, so that you'd never run out of games to play. But there's a fine line between collecting and hoarding, and apparently, a Texas man named Antonio Monteiro is lost in between. Last week, Antonio earned the Guinness World Record for having the largest video game collection in the world. How many does he own? 20,139 to be precise as of March 28. Yes, that's just insane. © Guinness World Records Monteiro has been collecting games since he was a child, and he apparently owns games for second to eighth generation consoles. Of course, he also owns 100-plus devices on which he plays all these games. Owning that many devices make sense considering the fact that he literally has huge walls stocked with games. You can check out the video here - The wall of games, as you can see, includes complete collections for consoles like Sony's PS2. the Nintendo Wii, Sega Dreamcast, and more. His first ever game was a copy of 'Golden Axe' for Sega Genesis, which his parents gave him as a gift. His favourite game, however, is 'Super Castlevania IV' for Nintendo SNES, and he calls it a masterpiece.
  2. For someone who moved from Pakistan to Down Under at a young age, Usman Khawaja has undeniably come a long way to become a vital cog in the Australian set-up. Ever since becoming the first Muslim to play for the Aussies in the Sydney Test during 2011 Ashes series, the left-hander has managed to cement his position in the Australian side on the back of consistent performances. When it comes to his batting, the Australian batsman thrives on the composure and patience he has developed over the years to build his innings. And, that is not derived from the countless hours spent in the nets. In fact, Khawaja mastered the art of discipline - something that's a must for any sportsperson - through his stint at the University of New South Wales - School of Aviation. Yep, you read that right. The Australian cricketer is also a qualified pilot after getting both his degree and licence to fly airplanes. And, he put his flying skills to test by taking control of Airbus A380 - the world's largest passenger aircraft - recently. Watch as qualified pilot Usman Khawaja puts his flying skills to the test, taking control of the largest passenger aircraft in the world!@Uz_Khawaja | @Qantas pic.twitter.com/gg8MerqebM — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) February 20, 2019 In a video shared on Twitter, the 32-year-old was seen handling himself quite expertly in the cockpit, his only blemish being a slightly rough landing. Confessing his love for flying, Khawaja said: "I travelled a lot as a kid. My dad worked in Saudi Arabia for about 5-6 years, so I use to travel back and forth to see them and then come back here to play cricket". guess this means they cant drop him for ashes because hes the one flying them over? — Blake Robinson (@Robbo_1990) February 20, 2019 "I just grew a fascination with planes. As I was coming towards the end, year 11-12, I thought 'what about flying'. I found UNSW (University of New South Wales - School of Aviation), which offered both a degree to make my mother happy and get my licence to get my wings," Khawaja said. Talking about how flying helped him in his cricketing endeavours, Khawaja revealed: "I think flying helped me a lot in terms of cricket. Probably the biggest way was discipline and keeping up with the learning, making sure you are on top of any changes that has happened. There are a lot of things that go hand in hand between flying and especially playing Test cricket. The discipline part of flying and discipline of being a sportsman, especially being a cricketer and being a batsman, I think there are a lot of similarities". Till flying simulator is fine but please don't give him real aircraft with passenger else be ready for Australian version of 9/11. — Abhishek Tripathi (@abhishekt2009) February 20, 2019 While many sportspersons are clueless about their choices post retirement, the Australian batsman seems to have that area covered pretty well. After acing the flying test, Khawaja will now have to back it up on the cricket field when Australia lock horns with India in two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and five One-Day Internationals (ODIs), slated to begin from 24th February.
  3. Paul Wight, more commonly known as Big Show, has been in the business of bursting his opponents' chests with open-arm slaps and knocking them out with a direct punch to the face with a fist as big as a freaking frying pan for a little over 24 years. Making his not-so-impressive debut with the World Wrestling Association on 24th December 1994 - a match he lost by countout - Big Show made it to the big stage a year later with the World Championship Wrestling. Getting into some of the greatest duels with the biggest names of the wrestling world like Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage, Big Show soon became one of the top in-ring performers in the world. According to his fellow wrestlers, an extremely 'safe' wrestler to perform against, the 7-feet-tall Show had constant health issues because of his massive size and heavy weight resulting in major medical problems such as having an irregular heartbeat, chewed out joints and constant agony for years. Shifting between 'fat' and 'less-fat' body types, over the years, Big Show often asked the typically jacked colleagues like Triple H and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson about their diet plans but could never get a definite response out of them. “When you take the time and do the research (about nutrition) it's more about what suits you, not what suits everybody,” Show spoke out on Conan O'Brien's chat show. One fine day, in what was a comparatively short conversation between Big Show and John Cena, Show talked about how weird it would be for the giant to have abs and Cena said: “Yeah. A giant with abs. That wouldn't be marketable at all,” as he walked away. Cena's words brought a reality check for the wrestler. He realised that coming up with a complete transformation would not only bring him better health, it could also bring along a new in-ring life for the athlete who was desperately searching for his lost mojo. “You don't make the transformation I've made without a serious commitment to changing 40 years of improper diet and improper training,” he told WWE.com. “I wanted to make a change, and I was given the time and opportunity to make a change, so I took advantage of it.” While in the initial days of Show's new determination to transform himself, his body didn't respond to his efforts uniformly, but as the kilos dropped, his muscular physique soon began to come out, which further motivated the big man to do better. The result? Hey @Shaq...glad your training!! Because so am I! #GiantAbs #WrestleMania pic.twitter.com/1WepdkHqWj — “The Big Show” Paul Wight (@WWETheBigShow) January 15, 2017 Show's heaviest was 244 kg. He brought it down to 210 kg and finally Show's current weight is a phenomenal 170 kg! What's really worth marvelling at is the fact that Show not only lost so much weight but also kept his muscles. And guess what, a giant with the giant abs and giant biceps looks a lot more terrifying (a lot more sellable) as compared to a blob moving around the ring with a broken hip in his black tiny spandex! We hope to see Paul 'Big Show' Wight back on the WWE roster soon. Until then, let's leave the big guy to himself with a small 'Happy birthday' note.

  5. Just in case you thought our government was pulling a fast one on us about the 'world's largest stadium in India', it's really not doing so and it's certainly not a myth! Yes, there wasn't much news from the site but we've just managed to get hold of some pictures from the stadium construction site and we're literally awe-struck! © Twitter The 700 crore ($100 million) stadium was given a green signal at the beginning of 2017, when a few prominent officials were called upon in Motera Ahmedabad, on January 16, 2017, to take part in the foundation-stone-laying ceremony of the new stadium. Now, two years later, we're getting a glimpse into some solid construction work that's gone into the stadium. © Twitter The Gujarat Cricket Association Vice-President, Parimal Nathwani tweeted out pictures of the construction in which he clearly stated that this is the dream project of the state cricket board and after it's completion, it will become a symbol of pride for India. Take a look: World's Largest Cricket Stadium, larger than #Melbourne, is under construction at #Motera in #Ahmedabad,#Gujarat. Once completed the dream project of #GujaratCricketAssociation will become pride of entire India. Sharing glimpses of construction work under way. @BCCI @ICC #cricket pic.twitter.com/WbeoCXNqRJ — Parimal Nathwani (@mpparimal) 6 January 2019 The stadium will be built across 63 acres of land, with a final budget cost of INR 700 crores, with the help of L&T and Populous, who have been given the construction tender and the opportunity to design it, respectively. The infrastructure, so far, includes three practice grounds and an indoor cricket academy, inside the stadium. As further told to a popular publication, the parking area will accommodate about 3,000 cars and 10,000 two-wheelers! The stadium also boasts of having 76 corporate boxes, four dressing rooms, a club-house and an Olympic -size swimming pool! Talk about having it all, eh? © Twitter The stadium vouches to take over from the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Eden Gardens in Kolkata, in every sphere. Especially in terms of capacity, seating (it can seat over 1 lakh people) and other spatial parameters, once it's fully constructed. Well, here's hoping the stadium is absolutely up and ready and in full swing by 2023, while India hosts both the Cricket World Cup and the largest cricket ground in the world!
  6. Like the famous Wallace Stevens' poem Disillusionment of Ten o' Clock, the tiny state of Goa tenders myriad different hues. So, what did I choose for my latest trip down the west coast? Biker. This choice offered me an insight into India's eccentric riding community, via Rider Mania, the world's largest gathering of Royal Enfield owners. The three-day festival rode the wave of the RE's brand new 650cc twins – Interceptor INT 650 and the Continental INT 650 – that were presented to India hours before the motorcycling extravaganza kicked off. I even hit tarmac astride both the bikes and they seemed nothing like any RE you would've ever ridden before. But more on that later. Royal Enfield/Alshaar I landed in Goa to dirt tracks and racing competitions on Day 1 of the festival to all sorts of Royal Enfields – from the custom vintage models to the more recent over-chromed 350s. There were vibrant custom helmet stalls, a testosterone-heavy beer drinking competition and a Maut ka Kuan that invoked a very familiar mela nostalgia from my childhood days growing up in small towns. Standing on one leg, a biker called Vinod Rawat stood out amidst this colourful bedlam. He lost the other limb when a truck ran him over at the tender age of six. Despite the efforts of doctors for the next six months, one of his legs had to be amputated owing to financial struggles. But a Mumbai hospital designed a special prosthetic leg for him when he was 27, and he has not looked back ever since. Royal Enfield/Alshaar He started the Convoy Control Club in 2010 for differently-abled riders, after facing rejection from other clubs due to his disability. Starting with three motorcyclists, the club now boasts of 120+ members. The youngest is 21 while the oldest are in their mid-50s. He took the stage to share his story at Rider Mania to an inquisitive audience. “In 2010, I was a part of Rider Mania and from then on I have always been a part of it,” he says. He has always ridden alone but receives whole-hearted backing from his family. “I have preferred Rider Mania to the other biking events because here you have everybody riding the Bullet. There is uniformity and everybody is on the same platform whereas other biker's music festivals have mixed bikes and hence there is a great disparity.” Royal Enfield/Alshaar His spirit reverberated in the beats of one of India's most promising young rappers Vivian Fernandes alias Divine, and his Gully Gang, on the main stage, later that night. “Sikander Vo Jo Jeeta Hain/Dilo Ko Beta Andar Se/Chhutkara Paoge Jhanjat Se/Mehnat Aur Thodi Mannat Se/Thakaan Aur Thodi Kismat Se/Par Moti Bante Kankad Se/Aarami Hogi Jannat Mein/Hum Pale Jaha Tu Matti Le/Iss Jungle Ki Kahani Mein,” he rapped the evening to a close. And after dark, what happens in Goa, stays in Goa. Royal Enfield/Alshaar More biker events awaited at the main arena on Day 2. But a quick meal at Sarah Todd's Antares later, I rode my Himalayan (borrowed from RE only for a day) to the RE Garage Café, in Baga. A friend had described the café's vibe to me as unruffled and laid-back. A mammoth industrial fan whirring overhead in the restaurant area was the epitome of this aura. Apart from an eatery, the café also has a merchandise and gear shop and more remarkably, a tiny motorcycle museum that houses prized machines, from the 1939 Flying Flea to the 1965 750cc Interceptor and more. The chief food curator Jamshed Madon is the face of this property that some Goans still refer to as the erstwhile J&A's Little Italy. And although I couldn't meet him on the day, his words from the launch, earlier this year, stayed with me. “It's a country- style kitchen for bikers and non-bikers alike. There's a lot of goodwill that has gone into the place. The goal is to reflect the local food and the food available on the road.” Royal Enfield/Alshaar The evening drew to a close with gigs from the likes of Su Real as I decided to spend it quietly by the Anjuna beach. But Is there ever a quiet evening when you're vacationing in Goa, I wonder. In the unexpected company of some old friends and a few new ones, the only colour I remember from the evening is black. How. Ever. I still woke up just in time for the big day. It was now time to ride the new motorcycles, in Goa's south-central village of Dona Paula. With the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) taking place in the background, it was me who felt like the real action hero as I first leaned into the corners first on the new Continental and then on the Interceptor. Having ridden the Himalayan over the weekend, these felt like massive upgrades. In fact, I'd even dare call them very very world-class. It wasn't very long ago that I was speeding on the latest Ducati Scrambler in Italy. Royal Enfield/Alshaar For starters, the Interceptor 650 features the styling ethos of a roadster in the classic mould, while the Continental GT is a cafe racer. Both the motorcycles use Royal Enfield's brand-new 648cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, which is surprisingly smooth and well-balanced (check out Kartik Singhee's Chaai ka cup test ICYMI ). Though unlike your usual REs, it also sounds brilliant thanks to the 270-degree firing order, even on the stock exhaust pipes. The new tubular double cradle frame, basic but competent suspension, excellent brakes and standard dual-channel ABS completes a rather thorough if basic package. And the big news is the incredible starting price of Rs 2.50 lakh for the Interceptor and Rs 2.65 lakh (both ex-showroom) for the Continental. There is no upside fork on the front nor is the engine liquid cooled. There aren't fancy electronics as well. But this duo will sell because it's RE and India loves it, just like Goa. It was my fifth trip to the Konkan state this year, and it remains to be a gift that keeps on giving. Still enough time for a sixth maybe? Royal Enfield/Alshaar
  7. China is facing similar pollution problems as in India but that's not stopping them from experimenting with Air Purifiers. The country installed the world's biggest air purifier early this year and is already bringing a noticeable change in air quality. It's 328 feet high and is improving the air quality in the city of Xian in Shaanxi province. According to the operators, the air quality has seen improvement in an area of 10 square kilometres over the past few months and the tower has produced more than 10 million cubic metres of clean air. The large air purifier is able to reduce the smog to moderate level on severely polluted days. The Smog tower in Xian was launched in 2015 and completed construction last year. It was developed to find an effective and cost-effective method to artificially remove pollutants from the atmosphere. © YouTube Delhi, the capital of India also faces similar pollution problems where air pollution levels have reached their worst and an India-based startup has suggested to the government to install a similar Air Purifier in the city. Kurin Systems wants to install an air purifier which is 40 feet high and has the capacity to clean 32 million cubic meters of air every day. We would love to see something of this effect present in Delhi to tackle the similar issue. Delhi's toxic air was termed as a “crisis” by the UN Environment chief and said that it requires “government, policy-makers, scientists and civil society to come together to mitigate”
  8. One of the best things about being a celebrated sportsman and international celebrity is perhaps the loyal fan following you garner. Sure, there are equal number of pros and cons attached to it, but we can't negate the fact that the pros weigh heavier. Fans going to insane lengths to please their 'idols' and grab their attention is not unheard of. Numerous starstruck fans have literally done some supremely strange things for their celeb crush, but this Mumbai-based artist's way of going about paying tribute to his favourite cricket star is essentially what we're talking about. Virat Kohli has been giving smashing record hit performances, and artist Abaasaheb Shewale found a very interesting way of paying his tributes to Kohli. Shewale has created a huge mosaic art of team India's captain using 4482 colourfully hand-painted earthen lamps. The 9.5 by 14 ft artwork has been put on public display at Seawoods Grand Central Mall in Navi Mumbai, and visitors have real good stuff to say about the detailing that has gone into its creation. Shewale considers it a very opportune moment to have gone public with this idea since 5th November is Kohli's birthday. Speaking to indianexpress.com he said, “Virat [Kohli] is shining like a bright light at the moment and with the Diwali approaching, I thought this would be an apt way to pay tribute”. The artist claimed that this artwork also happens to be his second world record, the first being a mosaic art with maximum push-pins. This passion project took shewale eight hours to put together with the help of five other co-artists. A self-funded personal project, he spent Rs. 10,000 out of his own pocket, and hand-painted all the diyas for this artwork. © BCCL The amount of hard work and dedication that Abaasaheb and co. has put into this wonderful artwork, is highly appreciable. We hope Virat Kohli gets to behold this wonder while it's still on display.
  9. Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has surpassed American giant Apple to become the world's second-largest smartphone seller behind the Korean behemoth Samsung in the second quarter. According to figures released by International Data Corporation, Samsung retained the top spot after shipping 71.5 million devices, Huawei took the second position by shipping 54.2 million devices, followed by Apple shipping 41.3 million iPhones. © IDC Huawei is the largest smartphone maker in China and has been rapidly expanding to other markets. In India, the company has been selling devices via Huawei branding as well as a new sub-brand, Honor. In 2018 itself, the company has launched a new device every couple of months and has been giving tough competition to Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo. Honor's share of overall Huawei smartphone shipments increased to 36 percent this quarter. Over 4 million Honor-branded smartphones were shipped outside China. © Bhallanator / Twitter In the last few years, Huawei has been slowly launching its flagship products in Europe as well. In terms of sales, the phones have been doing much better than expected and the company's refreshed focus on innovative phones like the P20 Pro has paid off to establish a trustable brand image. “The continued growth of Huawei is impressive, to say the least, as is its ability to move into markets where, until recently, the brand was largely unknown,” said Ryan Reith, programme vice president of IDC's Worldwide Mobile Device Tracker. © BCCL While Apple will be able to bounce back a little in the coming quarter thanks to the launch of new iPhones, Huawei has managed to establish itself as a premium player with a long-term outlook. Many reviewers have rated the P20 Pro higher than Samsung's S9, and the tri-camera setup on the rear is one of its kind. Apple, Huawei, and Samsung are the main contenders when it comes to competition for high-end smartphones priced at US$ 700 or more. © Nikkei Asian Review Huawei has been barred from selling devices in the U.S.A after concerns over Chinese government extracting user data via the smartphone maker. While Huawei has strongly denied any wrongdoing and continues to maintain that no user data is fetched back to China, the company has been forcefully dragged into the ongoing American - Chinese trade war.

  10. India is one of the few countries that completely skipped the computer age. In the developed markets, users slowly evolved; first they used the huge PCs, then laptops and then moved on to smartphones. On the other hand, only a tiny percentage of people have ever had exposure to computers or laptops in India. We joined the internet in a humungous number via the Smartphone. India has been a lucrative market for Smartphones in the last decade and there has been no sign of this trend going down, until now. The budget and midrange segment have the highest demand and occupy majority chunk of the market. This is also the reason why companies like Xiaomi, Vivo, OPPO, and Samsung have been filling up the market with as many products as possible. © Reuters While smartphones sales are booming, a silent trend has been picking up massively since last year. The Feature Phone segment, which everyone thought would die out, is making a comeback. Even the cheapest smartphone costs at least Rs 4,000 - 5,000. Jio announced the JioPhone which practically costs nothing when combined with the telecom operators data services. The end user is not only getting 4G coverage but also a supporting handset, bringing down the total cost of having an internet connected phone drastically. Jio has already announced the next iteration, JioPhone 2, which is expected to hit the market soon. © Reuters JioPhone runs on a fairly new OS called KaiOS. It is specially made for feature phones and has been running on many more devices made by TCL, HMD Global, and Micromax. Even though it is a "Feature Phone OS", it can run apps like Google Maps, Google Assistant and more integrated apps like WhatsApp, YouTube and Facebook are in the pipeline. © DeviceAtlas According to data revealed by DeviceAtlas, KaiOS has gained 15 percent market share in India over the last one year. In comparison, Apple's iOS stands at 9.3 percent. Counterpoint Research says almost 23 million KaiOS devices have been shipped so far. © KaiOS Kai Technologies Inc, the developer of KaiOS has received an investment of US$ 22 million from Google and is a part of its "Next Billion" initiative. Currently, Kai has a tech facility in Bengaluru with a team of nearly 30 engineers who are working on servicing the JioPhone. “We want to ensure that Google apps and services are available to everyone, whether they are using desktops, smartphones, or feature phones.” Anjali Joshi, vice-president, product management, Next Billion Users, said in a statement.
