  1. 'Apex Legends' has been on the news ever since its surprise launch in February. Thanks to its explosive launch, it took 'Apex Legends' just eight hours to attract 1 million unique players, and just 24 hours to reach 2.5 million players. And now, in just a week, that number hit 25 million, and now the game's developer Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that Apex Legends' player count total has crossed 50 million players. © Apex Legends - Electronic Arts A 50 million player count is just insane, considering the fact that the game was launched not too long ago. In fact, 'Apex Legends' was launched just four weeks ago, and it's growing at a much quicker pace than, say, 'Fortnite Battle Royale'. To put things into perspective, it took 'Fortnite Battle Royale' several months to hit the 45 million mark. Of course, 'Fortnite Battle Royale' was one of the pioneers of the Battle Royale genre, so it's not fair to compare something like Apex Legends, which in comparison, had enough time to polish the game and get almost everything right. However, there's no denying that 'Apex Legends' is onto something here, and the numbers are only going to grow from here. © Apex Legends-Respawn Entertainment That being said, let's not forget that 'Fortnite' is still one of the most successful Battle Royale titles of all time. Epic games just launched the 8th season, complete with new maps locations, skins and more. It's hard not to acknowledge the fact that millions of players are still enjoying 'Fortnite', and it remains to be seen if 'Apex Legends' will manage to amass the same level of popularity.
  2. Spotify was launched in India barely six days ago and the music streaming app has already managed to make a small dent in the Indian music streaming space. Even though Spotify is in the middle of a legal battle with Warner Music, the company still managed to get a million users in less than a week. A representative from Spotify confirmed with The Verge about the streaming service's rapid success. © Spotify Spotify offers free music stream with ads and also offers a premium membership which is priced at Rs 129, its Rs 389 for 3 months, Rs 719 for 6 months and Rs 1189 for a year. The premium membership removes advertisements and enables users to skip songs without any limits. Even though Spotify has some missing content due to a legal battle, the streaming company is focusing on adding regional content which includes music from Bollywood. Other regional music includes content in languages such as Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu. © Reuters According to research firms Deloitte and IMI, India has about 150 million subscribers for music streaming services and is only set to grow in the near future. Many streaming services are bundled with mobile plans such as Airtel's Wink, Free Amazon Prime memberships and others. Spotify's entry into India has been late and will face tough competition from other services such as Apple Music, Google Pay, Gaana, JioSaavn and Amazon Prime. In order to undercut the competition, Spotify offers a free plan which lets everyone stream for free. However, the free plan limits carry advertisements just like how you would find it on YouTube. © Reuters Spotify is currently available on iOS and Android platforms, Windows 10 PCs, Android TV, Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation, and macOS. Spotify also works with Google Home and Sonos natively, which is an added bonus for smart speaker owners. If you have Android Car or Apple CarPlay installed in your automobiles, Spotify also works natively on both auto platforms. At this time, Spotify will be available as apps for your smartphone and tablet (free download for Android and iOS), Windows 10 PCs, macOS computing devices, Android TV, Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox and also available via the web browser. Spotify is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in-car infotainment platforms. Source: The Verge
  3. In 2017, a Porsche sold for, hang on to your hats, $2.08 million. Eye-watering by even today's stratospheric supercar prices. But you know why this was such a big deal? The car in question, a Porsche 959 Sport, was 30 years old, and when new, cost in the region of $200,000! © Porsche Probably The First Supercar There's a thin line between supercars and sports cars, but the Porsche 959 stepped over that rather firmly. Production started in 1987, ending a year later, and just 292 of these were built (including just 29 Sport versions). 450hp, a top speed of 200mph, a 0-60mph time of under 4 seconds (3.6s for the Sport), the 959 was perhaps the first real supercar (as opposed to 'sports cars' and 'GT cars'). Consider this: One of today's most desirable cars - the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 - does the 0-60mph sprint in 3.5 seconds, which doesn't seem like a vast improvement over a car built when computers had less power than the smartwatch you got on your birthday. In fact, the two other legendary cars from the 1980s - the Ferrari Testarossa and the Lamborghini Countach, were nowhere near the 959 (both doing 0-60 in around 5 seconds). The 959 was in a league of its own - and it was gorgeous, the wide fenders, the racing-inspired bodywork, the rear wing, everything about it screamed 'speed'. Porsche Might Have Lost Money On It Porsche never intended the 959 to be a mainstream car - not like the legendary 911. In fact, some people say Porsche might have made a loss on every single 959 sold - one estimate says Porsche was selling it for less than half of what it cost to make! What Porsche was going for, then, was to show the very bleeding edge of tech - just what was possible if you threw out all the stops and said 'to hell with the costs'. © Zoom So the 959 came with four-wheel-drive, an adjustable suspension. Speed was so important that Porsche fitted its diva with hollow-spoke alloy wheels (to keep the weight down). Attention to detail like only the Germans can! Even Crashed 959s Sell For Half A Million Dollars “Okay”, you'd think, “if I had a few million lying around, I'd pay $2 million for a legendary Porsche supercar” - one that changed the car industry forever with its tech-heavy nature. But what about the chap who paid $467,500 for a 959 that had been in an accident? Yup, the car still ran, and we assume he got it repaired, but that's still a lot for a car that's been smashed up! The Dakar Edition Is Worth Even More The 959 Sport might be rare, but there's another 959 that's as rare as rain in the Sahara Desert - that would be the racing 959 that was built in 1985 - even before full-time production started - for the Paris-Dakar Rally. It didn't manage to complete the rally, but it had loads more going for it - this 959 was driven by three-time Dakar rally winner Rene Metge, and one of its later owners included Belgian racing legend Jacky Ickx © Zoom But It's Still Nowhere Near The World Record Price For A Car Sorry, Porsche, your 959 might be desirable but your arch-rivals have gone one better - In 2018, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for $48.4 million. The same weekend, another car, 1935 Duesenberg set the record for the most expensive American car sold at an auction - $22 million. But there's a difference - the 959 is remarkably modern (It even came with a tyre pressure monitoring system) and can still be driven around every day. So does that mean your rickety hatchback will be worth that much someday? Well, we'd doubt it but you can always dream!
  4. It's just been a week since Respawn Entertainment launched 'Apex Legends' and the game has found success in just a matter of days. It's a free-to-play Battle Royale game that is giving games like PUBG and Fortnite a run for its money. Respawn has now revealed that the game has hit 25 million total players and had "well over" 2 million concurrent players during the weekend. © YouTube To put things into perspective, 'Fortnite' took four months to achieve these numbers after its launch. At the moment, 'Fortnite' has over 200 million players and 8.3 million concurrent players which is a huge number for any game. This is partly because of the game can also be played on iOS and Android devices. © YouTube The studio is now using this achievement as an opportunity to promote the game's roadmap including new goodies for players for Valentine's Day. The company is also going to launch a paid Battle Pass next month that will work similarly to Fortnite's subscription programme. © Respawn Entertainment 'Apex Legends' builds on the Titanfall series and lore; which has been generally well-received amongst players. It uses the same combat mechanics with Battle Royale essentials such as looting gear, weapons and ammo. However, the game sets itself apart from other games, thanks to different characters that have different abilities. The game's marketing has also helped the game gain success due to its surprise launch and support from streamers like Shroud and Dr DisRespect. The game also does not implement any play-to-win micro transactions which make the game accessible to everyone for free. Have you been playing 'Apex Legends'? Follow our tips and tricks for getting your first win in the game.
  5. 'Apex Legends' is the latest and hottest Battle Royale game that is available to play for free on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It was quite an unexpected release by Electronic Arts, however, the game has found success in a matter of days. Just three days after its launch, the game has managed to rake in 10 million players. The biggest game in the Battle Royale genre Fortnite was able to achieve the same milestone in two weeks. © Electronic Arts “We knew it would be risky to take the franchise in this direction, to go free to play, and do a surprise launch,” Respawn CEO Vince Zampella wrote in a blog post. “But we fell in love with Apex Legends and wanted, needed, other people to play it, too.” In addition to the overall player count, the developer also says that Apex has already reached 1 million concurrent players. © Electronic Arts The game is set in the Titanfall universe that has fluid and snappy controls and features some of the most popular features from different genres. It essentially has gunplay like 'Call of Duty' and has characters with special powers that you may be familiar with from Overwatch. It's this unique approach to the Battle Royale genre that made the game successful. © Electronic Arts Currently, you can download Apex Legends via EA Origins on PC and via respective online stores on consoles. Apex Legends is a completely free-to-play game with microtransactions that are only applicable to cosmetics. The microtransactions in 'Apex Legend' does not affect the in-game footage and work exactly as it does on 'Fortnite'.
  6. Imagine losing all your squirrelled-away savings because the bank loses the password to its computer systems! That's (or rather, the cryptocurrency equivalent) exactly what happened recently with the Canadian Bitcoin exchange QuadrigaCX. Yup, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies) really haven't turned out the way we all hoped we would. They're too volatile, making them pointless for safekeeping your money away from the government's eyes, scams abound, exchanges have been hacked, the legality in many countries is still uncertain. The list goes on, and now you can add this doozy of a reason to the list of why you should be wary of trusting your money to people you don't really know. The Founder Died & Nobody Else Knows The Wallet Password This happened at Canadian cryptocurrency exchange QuadrigaCX - as it turns out, their founder, who was on a trip to India, died of complications from a chronic disease. Normally, we wouldn't expect that to shutter a business, but in the wacky world of Bitcoin, QuadrigaCX boss Gerald Cotten was also the only person who had access to the cryptocurrency exchange's wallet!!! This came out when QuadrigaCX filed for bankruptcy protection - their filing revealed they had no way of accessing the funds stored in their 'cold storage' wallet. According to a report on CoinDesk, the wallet, including all other transaction information is locked up in Cotten's laptop - and nobody has the password. Conspiracy Theories Abound While it would seem like a mix of incompetence, poor planning, and sheer bad luck, not everyone on the Internet agrees - rumours and allegations of a scam (we should mention, completely unproven) are rife: Many folks, understandably angry about the loss of their Bitcoin, are claiming the founder might have faked his death. Other people have alleged that QuadrigaCX's co-founder is a convicted identity thief who might have changed his identity (again, completely unproven and just allegations, though many of the affected are calling for a proper investigation). Not The First Cryptocurrency Disaster This isn't the first time cryptocurrency investors have lost their money: There was the case of Japanese exchange Mt Gox, which 'lost' almost $450 million worth (at that time) of cryptocurrency in a hack. Last year, two South Korea exchanges - Coinrail and Bithumb lost around $70 million in another hack. Another Japanese exchange - Coincheck - also revealed last year that it had lost nearly half a billion dollars worth of cryptocurrency in yet another hack! Even Bitcoin mining firms have been in the news - for allegedly lying to investors. Even Twitter was forced to take action after many scammers started using Elon Musk's likeness for advertising their cryptocurrency schemes (or rather, scams)! Cryptocurrency ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) are yet another minefield - many, many ICOs have turned out to be scams and Ponzi schemes! Keeping Your Bitcoin Safe Here are a few simple steps to keep your hoard of cryptocurrency safe: Use a reputable exchange: Yes, we know - considering some of the biggest names have been hacked, how can anyone tell what's reputable and what's not? It's always a risk to trust someone else with your Bitcoin, but if you still want to do so, tread carefully - read up on what other cryptocurrency enthusiasts think of them! Also, don't forget to use a strong password and two-factor authentication. Don't use an Indian exchange: Bitcoin-Rupee transactions are now banned in India, but if you still have any cryptocurrency in a wallet on an India-based exchange, we suggest you transfer the funds elsewhere - given how abruptly policies can change, your cryptocurrency will be safer elsewhere! Use your own wallet: Many companies offer software wallets you can store on your hard disk. Try one of these out, and don't forget to use a strong password. And it might make sense to keep a few backups in separate locations - don't be like the chap who threw out a hard disk containing a fortune in Bitcoin! Also, make sure any hard drive you store your wallet on is not plugged into a computer with access to the Internet. Use an offline wallet: Go completely non-electronic with a paper wallet. But for God's sake, don't leave it lying around - keep it in a bank safe deposit box!
  7. Fans love it when their favourite celebrity shares their personal life with them online, but Andy Murray may have just gotten a tad too personal. The tennis player recently underwent a hip resurfacing surgery and decided to share that with his 1.6 million followers on Instagram. He posted a picture of himself lying in the hospital bed after the surgery and another picture of an x-ray of his pelvic area to show everyone the metal hip. Pretty standard, right? Nothing out of the ordinary.

  9. Everyone loves the wedding season. Some enjoy it for the wide range of delectable food they get to gorge on, while some attend weddings just to click selfies with the bride, groom and with their new outfit in front of a distorted mirror. But if there's anyone who enjoys the wedding season the most, it's the bride's cousin, sister or bridesmaid, because that's the most profitable time of the year. Honestly, the stakes only get high when the groom is super rich. Instagram And we guess actress Parineeti Chopra will agree with us, as it looks like she will be making lots and lots of money at their highly-anticipated wedding next month. At least, her 'joota churai' fee hints at the same. The whole world knows that Priyanka Chopra is getting married to Nick Jonas in December. For those who were living under a rock until now, please go and check Priyanka and Parineeti's social media accounts, as they are flooded with pictures from PeeCee's bridal shower and bachelorette party in Amsterdam. Instagram One such picture was of Parineeti chilling with the bride-to-be Priyanka, which made Nick go weak in the knees for Priyanka once again. View this post on Instagram ð« A post shared by Parineeti Chopra (@parineetichopra) on Nov 5, 2018 at 11:10pm PST Nick commented on the picture and wrote "Wow she is so beautiful. Any chance you could introduce me?” Parineeti being the typical saali jumped on the opportunity and demanded her joota churai fee from him, "She is very hard to get! But I can try for you, if you agree to pay the 5 million dollar shoe hiding fee!" Instagram So, folks, now that the wedding season is here, it's time to let your cousins or siblings know exactly 'how much' you're expecting from them. Priyanka and Nick will reportedly get married in Jodhpur on December 2.
  10. Xiaomi's momentum has been exemplary in the last few years, not only has the company established a trusted brand but also managed to grab a huge chunk of market share in countries like India. On Friday night, CEO Lei Jun announced it had reached its goal of shipping 100 million units annually. The brand has accomplished to cross the milestone more than two months ahead of its original plan. The year over year growth has increased to 43 percent and last year as well the company successfully completed its plan of shipping 70 million units. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia On the contrary, Xiaomi's debut on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange has been lukewarm. Since its IPO in June, shares have slumped 30 percent amid an increasing competition from Huawei and the empire of BBK mobile that runs OPPO, Vivo, and OnePlus. Huawei reached the 100 million target way back in July and is on track to push 200 million units by the end of the year. Though, comparing the two companies right now is inappropriate because Xiaomi in a new entrant in the business compared to Huawei's decades-long history and experience. © Reuters Richard Yu Chengdong, chief executive of the Huawei Consumer Business Group, responded to Lei on social media, saying “Any smartphone maker cannot surpass Huawei's P20 Pro in a short period of time. Only we can surpass ourselves.” In India, Xiaomi is the number one smartphone maker according to Counterpoint Research's Q3 2018 data. Xiaomi currently holds 27 percent of market share followed by Samsung at 23 percent. In the last one year, the Chinese maker has dethroned Samsung from the number one spot and is widening the gap every quarter. © MensXP Xiaomi is able to sell a huge number of units because its products are in the budget and midrange segments of the market. In a developing country like India, the average purchasing segment is between Rs 11,000 to Rs 18,000. Xiaomi has a wide range of offerings like the Redmi Note 5 Pro, Mi A2, Redmi 6 Pro, and the Redmi Y2 to fill up this segment. Even the newly launched sub-brand POCO has been performing well and provided a much-needed momentum to increase the average purchasing rate of smartphones. Source: Twitter
  11. Almost everyone dreams of being super-rich one day, and that's mostly a common goal for everyone. Who wouldn't want to be a millionaire and have an extravagant and lavish life? I will tell you who– someone who's already a multi-millionaire and still prefers living an ordinary life. Quite commendable, if you think about it. The person in question is the legendary actor Chow Yun-fat, who says he lives on just $100 a month and even plans to give away his $714 million fortune to charity. What a guy! Twitter While promoting his movie, 'Project Gutenberg', he opened up about his lifestyle, which is honestly so unexpected for a millionaire. He said, “My dream is to be a happy and normal person.” He went on, “The hardest thing in life is not about how much money you earn, but how to keep a peaceful mindset and live the rest of your life in a simple and carefree manner.” Words to live by, tbh! He said he doesn't like spending any money on himself and would rather spend it doing charity work. He also said he eats at street food stalls and takes public transport as much as he can. The best thing about this is that he also claimed he had used his Nokia phone – probably a flip phone – for 17 years and the only reason he upgraded to a smartphone was because the Nokia phone stopped working. Side note – Apple please take note and make phones that last almost two decades, that will be great! While a lot of us dream of the day where we would shop without even looking at the price tag, the guy who can actually afford to do it prefers shopping at discount stores instead. He said, “I don't wear clothes for other people. As long as I think it's comfortable, then it's good enough for me.” It's great to see that even after being in the film industry for 40 years, he's still so down to earth and humble. We really need more people like him in the world. Moreover, since he and his wife Jasmine Tan have no children, they plan on leaving it all to charity. The couple also established their own charity several years ago and even do a lot of charity work in their spare time. Basically, he has earned so much money but he still believes the best use of it will be to help others. He's known for acting in movies like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Bulletproof Monk and Crazy Rich Asians among others.
  12. Qatar's royal family has put its luxury jet up for sale and it could sell for as much much as £500,000,000 (that's 500 million). The Royal Family has a whole fleet of Business Jets often called as the Qatar Amiri fleet. There are almost a dozen planes, and one of them is the Boeing 747-8, the world's largest business jet. The Royal Family has two of these Boeing 747-8s and is now looking to sell one of them. To be more precise, the one up for sale has a registration code VQ-BSK and was delivered just recently in December 2012. The interior redesign was completed in December 2014, and the aircraft finally entered service in January 2015. © Controller The aircraft has logged just 436 flight hours along with 200 cycles and is equipped to transport 76 passengers in an extremely luxurious cabin. Onboard facilities include a large bedroom with a double bed, a living room, staterooms and meeting rooms, a bathroom and even its own special hospital. © Controller The Boeing 747-8i, also known as the 747 Dreamliner has a list price of US$ 370 million and is designed to carry more than 400 passengers in a three-class layout. Currently, airlines like Lufthansa and British Airways operate this aircraft and it is among the most popular aircrafts in the world, thanks to the legacy of 747 series. © Controller Right now it remains unclear as to why the Royal Family is open to selling this crown jewel, the other 747-8 in their fleet is a lot more subtle from the outside though. Keep in mind, even though there are numerous pictures available online about the interiors, there are still many features and additions on board the aircraft that are not meant for everyone's eyes. © Controller The Qatar Amiri Fleet also includes a three widebody Airbus A340s and two A330s. For more routine and short turnaround work, it has around eight narrow-body A320s as well as a single A310. Basically yes, the Royal Family has its own mini airline that is waiting round the clock for them. © Controller It's unclear who the new buyer will be, or whether there will be one in the first place. Business Jets are a huge liability, and the 747-8 burns fuel and requires maintenance like a monster. In fact, the American President is also going to get a new aircraft, often referred to as the "Air Force One", and its obviously going to be a heavily customized Boeing 747-8.

  15. If you live in a metropolitan city, be it anywhere in the world, you know all too well the woes of finding a good parking spot. Finding the G-spot is easier perhaps. Road rage in third world cities is being replaced by parking rage. Neighbours bickering over dripping clothes in their balconies is a thing of the past; these days the only fights are over parking. © Pexels Buying a house is easier than buying a parking spot it seems. We never thought we'd be saying this but the most expensive parking spot in the world costs a whopping one million dollars. The city is New York and the area is Manhattan, one of the most populated spaces in the city. There are 10 parking spots in a luxury condo built by 42 Crosby St. in Manhattan's posh Soho district, and the price of each of the parking spots (that houses a single car) is one million dollar. That's over Rs 6.8 crore. © Twitter/Gerard Baker Ironically, the per square foot cost of the apartments they come with is cheaper. The cheapest apartment is priced at $3,140 per square foot while the parking space below is at $5,000 per square foot. Yep, think twice before buying a second car. The spot is for lifetime and parks a single car. It really is an insane amount to pay for a parking. There is another building in the Hudson Square district in New York that has set the price of parking spots at one million dollars. The building at 15 Renwick St. has 3 parking spots priced at $1 million dollar along that come with the 2 penthouses priced at $7 million and $11 million. Of course, this is the price of the most expensive parking spot in the world and these are luxury spaces meant for the well-heeled who's who of the world. But if you thought this is just a first world phenomena, let us tell you a parking spot in Hong Kong was sold for $760,000, and another for $664,260. And these parking spaces were much smaller (over 150 sq. feet) than the ones in Manhattan.
