  1. A new image of Apple's AirPower was spotted on the company's Australian website and was spotted by Twitter user Michael Bateman. The image appeared on the AirPods page and shows an iPhone XS charging alongside an AirPods wireless charging case. The new image does not show an Apple Watch previous images shown by Apple before. © Apple AirPower has been the long-awaited wireless charging pad by Apple that was announced in 2017 alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. The mat has not been since that event as it has been rumoured that the wireless charging mat has been suffering from over-heating issues in the past. Apple that removed any mention of the charging mat from its website, fearing that it may have been cancelled stealthily. © YouTube The new image looks very similar to the previous image released by Apple; however, this time it showcases a smartphone with a wallpaper that was released on the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS. Earlier this week, Apple announced new AirPods and a new wireless charging case that can be used with the AirPower. Earlier this year, it was reported that Apple has started production of the wireless charging mat and would be available for customers later this year. © Apple It is possible that Apple may launch the AirPower quietly today before the company's event on March 25th that will primarily focus on services. The press conference is expected to focus on video streaming service and a new subscription platform.

  3. Apple announced the second generation of the very popular AirPods that was first launched in 2016. The new AirPods has a new H1 chip that has been developed exclusively for earphones and promises faster connect time, longer talk time and can now also launch Siri with a simple “Hey Siri” prompt. The new AirPods also comes with a Wireless Charging Case that will be available to order through Apple Authorised Resellers later this spring. It can also be bought separately for older AirPods.

They are powered by the new Apple-designed H1 chip which brings an extra hour of talk time, faster connections, hands-free 'Hey Siri' and the convenience of a new wireless battery case.” The new H1 chip is the star of the new AirPods that can basically let the AirPods switch between an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch seamlessly and twice as fast. It can also deliver 50 per cent more talk time compared to the previous generation. (c) Apple The charging case can hold an additional 24 hours of charge and the wireless charging case is compatible with any Qi-wireless charger.

  4. For all who swear by Uber India, another episode of verbal harassment killed the sweet joy-ride for a woman and her husband, who'd taken the cab on a hot sultry day in the national capital. The woman, Amrita Das, who is a Delhi-based-journalist, experienced lewd comments and misbehaviour from the Uber driver, while she and her husband were travelling in his cab. She took to Twitter to share her ordeal. © Twitter "Rude and creepy driver. I demand action. First, he refused to turn on the air conditioner, then says garmi lag rahi hai to aage mere godi me baith jao [If you are feeling hot then come and sit on my lap]. He also ended the trip, moments after starting to drive and forced me out. This is when I was with husband," she tweeted. @Uber_Delhi @Uber @Uber_Support rude and creepy driver. I demand action. First he refused to turn on ac then says garmi lag rahi hai to age mere godi me baith jao. He also ended trip moments after starting to drive and forced me out. This is when I was with husband. @DelhiPolice pic.twitter.com/qE40ib3B5d — Amrita D (@amritadas) 19 March 2019 And yes, Uber did respond to her Tweet but it was not the kind of response we were hoping for. They said: "We're so sorry to hear about this. Our team has recently responded via email. Please reply there if you have additional questions." We're so sorry to hear about this. Our team has recently responded via email. Please reply there if you have additional questions! — Uber Support (@Uber_Support) 19 March 2019 This isn't the first time an Uber driver has shown misconduct towards a female passenger in Delhi. There have been numerous cases reported of women being molested or being talked back rudely to, while riding an Uber. Just recently Mallika Dua encountered an Uber driver who chose to abuse her when she asked him to increase the temperature of the air conditioning. But this incident with Amrita Das is a new low altogether, wherein the Uber driver isn't just insulting her request, he's being lewd and inappropriate with her as well. Although, Uber has received the complaint, just like always, their complacency over this matter will also rule the roost, just like the rest of them have in the past. They probably won't take action against the driver and he'll carry on driving in the city, passing horrible remarks to other women who hail his cab. © Twitter The need of the hour is for Uber to step up on their hiring operations and also take vital responsibility towards several complaints they receive about their drivers. The drivers should be thoroughly scanned before they are hired and if they misbehave, they should definitely be fired, on the ground. We're not sure why Uber dictates such apathy towards these issues but we're hopeful they'll change their ways soon before something more drastic happens. Meanwhile, Twitter came out in support of Amrita and this is what most of them had to say: Worst part is..Uber doesn't have an emergency contact number in India.. happened to us as well...hope you are okay.. — Naren (@shipsdeet) 19 March 2019 This is serious. No response from @DelhiPolice @DelhiTrafficPol ? Don't hesitate in filing a police complaint. @Uber_Support Do you not verify drivers' credentials before hiring? @Uppolice and @uptrafficpolice also need to look into the matter, since the car has no. plate of UP — Half Expert (@akul_nishant) 19 March 2019 @Uber_Support Taking this particular driver as reference, I'd like to know how do you ensure something like this does not happen again? Is he going to be let off with a warning? Or sacked? Or sensitised? What are the concrete steps you're taking to make your riders feel safe? — Abhishek Sinha (@raptorhands) 19 March 2019 Sick and tired of @Uber_Delhi drivers. No action taken even after having multiple harrowing experiences. Sack this driver! — Dylan San Delo (@theparambhole16) 19 March 2019 Uber has gone worst in NCR. If u'd ask to turn on AC, they'll lecture you on whether. Cab drivers in their 'prime category' are even worst. — Piyush Hans (@HansPiyush) 19 March 2019 That's why girls still hesitate to travel alone.. When will this change ð — Divya Sharma (@DivyaSh92292336) 19 March 2019 Why @DelhiPolice u aren't responding U must learn from @MumbaiPolice who are prompt in responding to public calls, they respond to even every smallest tweet — âsâ (@arieotic) 20 March 2019 Sorry from @Uber_Support isn't an answer. @DelhiPolice must take action against the driver. https://t.co/ENCI3ty20t — Mohd Mustaquim (@Mustaquimm) 20 March 2019 This is genuinely a very common occurrence. Uber should definitely suspend such drivers. — AARUSHI005 (@Aarushiwith2As) 20 March 2019 The most pertinent question though is when will women feel safe in this city? Put aside single women travelling alone, even women travelling with male companions face such threats too. Unless Uber India decisively takes action against their drivers, the situation's not going to change for sure.
  5. 'Bandersnatch' is awesome, 'Man vs Wild' is awesome, but Netflix thought 'What would happen if we smash those two together?' Well, a great show is what you get. Netflix's latest interactive project is coming this April and the premise already sounds so cool and promising. The show which is obviously hosted by none other than Bear Grylls is called 'You vs Wild' and I honestly just want to take a moment to appreciate the name. 'Man vs Wild' has one basic premise - Bear Grylls attempting to survive in extreme conditions and climates. But, 'You vs Wild', as the name suggests, will put the viewer in charge and all the decisions will determine whether he succeeds or fails. Basically, the people who would sometimes yell at the TV saying 'he should've done this instead!' can finally get a real voice. Since Black Mirror's 'Bandersnatch' was such a hit with the audience, even though I doubt anyone ever even managed to actually finish it, an interactive survival show should kill it. Netflix, please make a thriller or horror interactive movie next so we can actually control some of the stupid decisions instead of calling the characters dumb. Thanks. 'You vs Wild' is set to premiere on Netflix on April 10th and all the eight episodes will be available at the same time.
  6. 2018 was the year when smartphone manufacturers tried weird ways to maximize their phone's screen-to-body ratio. From sliding mechanisms to hole-punch displays, we have everything in the market now. However, ZTE has decided to go for a different approach. ZTE's new smartphones, the Axon V and Axon S, were spotted online by Notebook Italia (https://notebookitalia.it/zte-axon-s-smartphone-monolitico-slider-laterale-28088), giving us a look at the design. Instead of, say, a notch or a punch-hole display, the new phones have a drastically different design. © Notebook Italia The Axon V, as you can see, has a notch that protrudes out of the body from the side, hosting what appears to be a selfie camera and a 3D sensor. Of course, the phone now has a full-screen display on the front, but the design looks downright ugly. This weird design, which I am just going to call the 'bottle opener notch', also raise concerns about the phone's durability, and prone to fall damage, etc. It's even hard to tell if this phone will get protective cases or not. © Notebook Italia The Axon S, on the other hand, is a bit of a relief as it sports a slider design. It's a horizontal slider as opposed to the vertical sliding mechanism seen on phones like the Mi Mix 3, but I'll take it over the Axon V. ZTE has decided to throw in all the cameras i.e. both two front-facing and three rear-facing cameras on the slider, so the device has a clean black. © Notebook Italia The front of the slider also appears to have a touch-sensitive area, which I believe, can be used for zoom control. The phone is said to have a 48-megapixel main camera along with a 19-megapixel secondary shooter. Additionally, the device also offers an in-display fingerprint scanner, 5G support, and more. © Notebook Italia It is, however, worth pointing out that there's no official word on the phones from ZTE just yet. ZTE may end up scraping the design for all we know. So for now, we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt. But nonetheless, the renders do give us an idea of what these OEMs are cooking for us.
  7. The sudden demise of Goa's CM Manohar Parrikar shook the nation in grief and horror. The man was known for his nobility and great brains in running a state with his brilliance. Pramod Sawant has now been sworn as the 11th CM of Goa and while you might have heard the name somewhere, not many people know about him. © Twitter Pramod Sawant has never served as a cabinet minister in the state before, just like Manohar Parrikar. The 45-year-old minister holds a degree in Ayurvedic medicine from the Ganga Ayurvedic Medical College in Maharashtra's Kolhapur district. He is also a practicing Ayurvedic doctor in Goa. His political career began when he was elected to the State assembly in 2012 and 2017 from Sanquelim. He is one of the youngest leaders in the BJP and was reportedly a close ally of Manohar Parrikar and shared his vision. He owes his success and his journey to his mentor Manohar Parrikar only. “Whatever I am today is all due to Manohar Parrikar. It was he who brought me to politics. I became the Speaker and the CM today, due to him,” he said in his oath ceremony. © Twitter His wife is also in politics and his daughter is a school student. Let's hope Goa continues to thrive under the newfound leadership of Pramod Sawant and he continues to follow the legacy that Mr. Parrikar left behind.
  8. Dell's Alienware range is probably the first name that comes to your mind when you think of gaming laptops. They're some of the most powerful notebooks in the market, and Dell just updated its range in India. The company has launched the Alienware Area-51m, a super-powerful and an upgradeable gaming laptop, along with the thin-and-light Alienware m15. Alienware Area-51m Dell's Alienware Area-51m is, without a doubt, one of the most powerful gaming laptops that are available in the market today. It's the world's first notebook to come with upgradeable hardware including CPUs and GPUs. At any given time, users can swap out the components like RAM, Wi-Fi card, storage, CPU, GPU, and more. Out of the box, the Alienware Area-51m can be configured with a Core-i9 9900K, a 17.3-inch 144Hz display, RTX 2080 GPU, up to 64GB RAM, and more. It also packs a 90Whr battery. The laptop also sports the Alienware TactX keyboard with 2.2mm of travel, anti-ghosting, per-key RGB lighting, etc. Of course, the lighting is not limited to the keyboard, and you can customize it for the power button, LCD cover Alien head, and more with the help of the AlienFX program. © Alienware As for the thermals, the laptop comes with 'Advanced Cryo-Tech 2.0' technology that should help keep this thing cool during the intense gaming sessions. The Alienware Area-51m will be available in 'Lunar Light' and 'Dark Side of the Moon' color options, and it starts at Rs 2.99 Lakhs. You can check out all the available configurations here. Alienware m15 In addition to the Area-51m, Dell also launched the Alienware m15, which is the most compact Alienware laptop to date. It weighs in at just 4.8 pounds (2.18 kg), and it's 14 per cent thinner than the older 13-inch laptops. © Dell As for the internals, the Alienware m15 can be configured with up to a Core-i7 8750H processor, Nvidia RTX 2070 GPUs, 32GB of RAM, and more. It packs a 60Whr battery pack, but you can bump that up with a 90Whr battery pack. However, Dell has ditched its signature per-key lighting in Alienware m15's keyboard and has opted for 6-zone RGB lighting instead. Here's the difference in the form factor between the two generations of m15. It's slimmer, lighter and smaller in size. @Dell_IN pic.twitter.com/MYozFw2Vz7 — Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) March 18, 2019 The Alienware m15 laptop starts at Rs. 1,78,399, and the pricing goes up based on the configuration. You can check out the available options here. Dell G7 © Dell Lastly, Dell also updated its G7 laptop with new internals to go with the newer models. The updated version of the laptop is now powered by Intel's 8th-gen Core processors and Nvidia's GeForce RTX graphics. You can configure it with up to a Core i9-8950HK, and GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU. It also sports a 144Hz FHD display with slim bezels. The new Dell G7 starts at Rs 1,57,399, and you can pick one up online, starting today.
  9. This is a universal fact - you can count on the Sikh community anywhere and everywhere to help you when needed. We've seen it every single time any tragedy occurs in part of the world. After the horrific terrorist attack in Christchurch where a gunman opened fire in two mosques, taking the lives of 49 people and injuring 40 other, the entire world mourned the loss and prayed for the speedy recovery of the victims. Everyone is condemning the horrific attack and the Sikh community, like always, is out there helping out those in need. Guru Nanak's Free Kitchen, an NGO, asked people to come forward and help the Muslim community and everyone in need. Obviously, no one disappointed. What a great message and it's honestly so great to see every community so willing to help out one another when in need. I say this every time, but it sucks that a tragedy unites everyone, but at least, everyone forgets differences and comes together in dark times. They shared another update about how they got so much responses and volunteers. Guru Nanak's Free Kitchen was started in 2007 when a group of like-minded people came together to give back and help the community in any way needed.
  10. Whatever PM Modi says or does, it trends. That's the rule of Twitter in India. So of course, him launching a new campaign was bound to be talked about, no surprise there. PM Modi launched a 'Main Bhi Chowkidar' campaign this morning and shared a video and message on Twitter. Your Chowkidar is standing firm & serving the nation. But, I am not alone. Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar. Everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar. Today, every Indian is saying-#MainBhiChowkidar — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 16, 2019 The video is basically a song with lyrics showcasing the government's initiatives. In the tweet, he says that today, everyone's a Chowkidar and well, now people are tweeting #MainBhiChowkidar. This particular hashtag soon became the top worldwide trend on Twitter and his tweet alone has thousands and thousands of replies, retweets, and likes. Soon, people started tweeting using the hashtag saying every Indian is a chowkidar today because “Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar, everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar.” Now everyone's proud to be a chowkidar. Proud to be a Chowkidar. #MainBhiChowkidar https://t.co/XXwo5hxkrb — B.S.

  11. While revamping utility and public structures has been the need of the hour, the New Delhi Railway Station can't be left untouched for long. Just a month ago, Mathura Railway Station got an absolutely new look and now it's time for Delhi to literally shine. The station was given an artsy feel, rich in culture and heritage and now every time we're catching a train from there, we'd be afraid to miss it, because it's done up quite elaborately and beautifully. The station building looks quite vibrant with some colourful patterns strewn across, with wall art and geometrical designs all over the ceilings. It really looks like we're amidst a colourful little cultural village. The station has also upgraded its public facilities like LED lights, escalators and LCD displays, all over. © Twitter The station will be equipped with solar panels for deriving energy from them and it'll be kept clean throughout. Well, Delhi isn't the only station that has been revamped. Apart from Mathura, there is also Haridwar, Jaipur and Lonavla. They've all been beatified and upgraded just as Delhi and Mathura. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted about the development of the station: बदलता भारत, बदलतॠरà¥à¤²à¤µà¥à¤ सà¥à¤µà¤¿à¤§à¤¾à¤¯à¥à¤, सà¥à¤µà¤à¥à¤à¤¤à¤¾ à¤à¤° सà¥à¤à¤¦à¤°à¥à¤¯ सॠभरा नठदिलà¥à¤²à¥ रà¥à¤²à¤µà¥ सà¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ नया à¤à¤à¤°à¥à¤·à¤ रà¥à¤ª यातà¥à¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¥ à¤à¤ विशà¥à¤µà¤¸à¥à¤¤à¤°à¥à¤¯ रà¥à¤²à¤µà¥ सà¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ à¤à¤¹à¤¸à¤¾à¤¸ à¤à¤°à¤¾ रहा हà¥à¥¤ pic.twitter.com/rUiirbwjDj — Piyush Goyal (@PiyushGoyal) 14 March 2019 The new look of the Railway station went down pretty well with most people and they took to Twitter to praise the efforts made by the Ministry of Railways and the Indian Railway Station Development Corporation. The feeling!!!

Or you can just check out these pictures here: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter The Indian Railway Station Development Corporation (IRSDC), which is a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for revamping and developing such structures, will invest about Rs 7,500 crore, for redeveloping close to 50 railway stations across India. Simultaneously with that, they will also have a beatification drive alongside, which will entail paintings and art along the premises of the station. We're glad the Indian Railways are making an effort to revamp old stations and after airports, this was pretty much the need of the hour.
  12. "This is one of New Zealand's darkest days," Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, as the country mourns the loss of people who were killed in the attacks on two Christchurch mosques. On Friday, the prayers of worshippers at a mosque turned into screams after a gunman mercilessly opened fire. According to the New Zealand Police, the death toll has risen over 40 and nearly 20 people have been injured. © Reuters However, this terror attack has landed famous YouTuber PewDiePie in trouble. Reportedly, out of the multiple terrorists who conducted the mass shooting, one of the gunmen live-streamed the attack and in the video he asked people to subscribe to PewDiePie. Yes, PewDiePie. The same YouTuber who has the highest number of subscribers and was recently in news for fighting with Ekta Kapoor on social media and competing with T-Series in the race for subscribers. "Remember lads, subscribe to Pewdiepie," the gunman reportedly said. © AP We're not saying PewDiePie is related to this attack in any way nor are we trying to troll or defame him. But, given his history of racist and controversial humour, people can't help but connect the dots. However, post the heinous attack and the mention of his channel in the live stream, PewDiePie has now reacted to it and says he feels 'sickened' that his name was uttered by the person. He wrote on Twitter, "Just heard news of the devastating reports from New Zealand Christchurch. I feel absolutely sickened having my name uttered by this person. My heart and thoughts go out to the victims, families and everyone affected by this tragedy." Just heard news of the devastating reports from New Zealand Christchurch. I feel absolutely sickened having my name uttered by this person. My heart and thoughts go out to the victims, families and everyone affected by this tragedy. — ƿ૯ωá«É¿à«¯Æ¿É¿à«¯ (@pewdiepie) March 15, 2019 According to a report in India Today, the gunman apparently visited 8Chan before murdering people on Friday and left this message there "Please do your part by spreading my message, making memes and shit-posting as you usually do." Our hearts go out to the families who lost their loved ones in this deadly terror attack and we hope that people of New Zealand get the strength to live through this dark time.
  13. The Russo Brothers have finally shown some mercy and have given us another 'Avengers: Endgame' trailer! First of all, just watch, that's it. There's so much happening, but not enough happening at the same time. The new trailer has me a little too overwhelmed but after watching and re-watching this much-awaited trailer, here are the things that stood out to me. Okay, we can get through this, the trailer was incredible, as expected, and there's a lot to unpack here, which is not surprising since this is not just a Marvel movie, this is THE Marvel movie that will destroy all of us. Okay, rambling over. 1. Tony Stark Makes It Back To Earth! The question has been finally answered, Tony Stak and Nebula make it back to earth. He's ready to join the Avengers once again and if we don't get an emotional scene of Tony and Cap reuniting, I will personally fight the Russo Brothers. 2. Hawkeye Has A Mohawk Did he get it just because of the name? Why is he getting a new hairstyle in a basically post-apocalyptic world? Guess we'll find out. Also, damn he has a lot of footage in the trailer. 3. Nat's Red Hair Is Back Are they trying to show us the timeline with Black Widow's hair? We can see the blonde at the end of the trailer, then we can see her growing out her red hair and she has half blonde and half red and then in another scene, it's almost all red. 4. What's With All The Focus On Red? Why is all the red highlighted in the beginning when they're showing clips from the old MCU movies? What's the significance of the colour red? 5. The Matching Avengers Outfits They finally united, for real, and are now wearing matching suits. Thanos is shaking. Also, I want to know how they found their own Edna to design new clothes after the 'dusting'. 6. The Edited Out Person From The Teaser Was Tony Remember that moment of all of them walking in slo-mo from the teaser? We could see they had edited out someone from that scene and it was Tony and Nebula. 7. Thor 'Likes' Captain Marvel Carol Danvers may have not gotten approval from a lot of people who watched 'Captain Marvel' but she sure got Thor's and that's the only thing that matters. She doesn't even flinch when the Stormbreaker just swishes right past her face. Okay, April 27th cannot come fast enough.
  14. Every year, OnePlus comes up with a new version of OxygenOS with some not-so-major tweaks. On the same lines, OnePlus is now building a new version of the software, and it's time for us to see what it may look like. The winner of OnePlus' Product Manager Challenge, Léandro Tijink, submitted some amazing renders, showing an entirely new UI and improved UX of OxygenOS. As a part of the prize for the challenge, OnePlus pledged to implement his ideas into a future version of OxygenOS. So let's take a look at some of his ideas - New & Improved Setup Menu Currently, the setup menu of OxygenOS is more or less identical to stock Android's setup menu. It looks very basic at the moment, but Tijink's design focuses on improvements to make it look more welcoming. The design, as you can see, lets you see more languages, gives you the ability to set the system-wide accent colour, and more. Take a look - © Léandro Tijink A Better Ambient Display & Lock Screen The ambient display will give you the basic information like the time, date, and notifications, and you can tap the display to get more info associated with each notification. The ambient display will also wake up to show new notifications, however, everything else will remain hidden. © Léandro Tijink As for the lock screen, there aren't a lot of changes, but there are a lot of rounded edges. It hasn't been changed all that much, and it's probably because it wasn't too bad, to begin with. OnePlus Launcher & Other Changes OnePlus Shelf, which comes as a part of the default launcher, can turn out to be very productive if used properly. Well, Tijink design imagines that space to be a lot more efficient, and hey, he made it look good at the same time. Who wouldn't want an AMOLED black mode for the shelf? Other aspects of the OxygenOS launcher also appear to be tweaked. Things like the app drawer, hidden space, and all the first-party apps have been made to look consistent with the rest of the system. © Léandro Tijink As of now, it's hard to tell which of Tijink's ideas will be implemented but OnePlus did say that it will consider Tijink's vision and add them in the future version of OxygenOS. These renders look amazing and it would be interesting to see the ones which OnePlus decides to pick. You can head over to Tijink's custom page to check out all his renders.
  15. If you're someone like me who is simply, obstinately and irrevocably stuck in the past, well, then it's moments like these that just make you feel alive! So, last night, when my fever-addled mind was trying to decide between going to bed ridiculously early or just binge something Korean on Netflix till I pass out, a notification literally had me screaming my already hoarse throat off. Mother of God, the trailer for the live-action remake of Disney's classic 'Aladdin' was finally gracing my laptop screen! I will not lie. I think I cried a little. Well, how can one not, when those opening bars with the scintillating Arabic music, take you right back to 1st grade? And that aerial market shot of the bustling Agrabah market? Perfection. So, without further ado, let's jump into the 10 moments from the trailer that almost cured my fever and then left me for dead within minutes: 1. Aladdin's Freaking Parkour Skills Yea, we all knew from the original movie that he could jump across rooftops with ease, but when you throw in those angles right in the opening shot with our boy literally flying through the air, well, excuse me while I pick up my jaw off the floor. 2. Aladdin & Jasmine's Oh-So-Filmy Yet Perfect Eye Contact Could it get any more Bollywood than this, people? Not that I'm complaining. I love me some slow-motion, frozen-in-place, googly eyes, rose-petals-floating-in-the-background, action. Just look at Al, he is a complete goner. And Jasmine...daymmmm! 3. Jafar Tempting Aladdin To Enter The Cave Of Wonders Kudos to this scene for looking legit Xeroxed from the original movie. And might I add that that giant tiger/panther/jaguar cave sounds 10 times scarier now, even though I am a fully grown adult female? 4. Aladdin Rubbing The Golden Lamp & Letting The Genie Out The cave of wonders filled with riches looks freaking brilliant, almost giving competition to Smaug's hoard in the Lonely Mountain. And yes, Aladdin's expression of pure horror and bewilderment upon letting the Genie out is on point. 5. Will 'Genie' Smith In All His Blue Glory Recreating 'Friend Like Me' Okay. Hold on. Don't even think of coming at me with your “he is so lame” comments. I will hear nothing, absolutely nothing against my man Will. He is going to nail this role so hard, all you naysayers gonna wish you had a magic carpet to fly away on. Just look and listen to this clip of 'Friend like me' and tell me it's not perfect? 6. A Glimpse Of The Awesome Song 'Prince Ali' “Prince Ali - fabulous he - Ali Ababwa”. Remember this? Genie singing as Aladdin makes his way through Agrabah to meet Princess Jasmine, decked as a Prince, in a glittering, extravagant procession along with his “seventy-five golden camels” and “ninety-five white Persian monkeys”? 7. Aladdin & Genie's Sassy Yet Hysterical Chemistry Can't stress enough but the entire movie rests on this particular element. The bromance between these two. Sure, like any purist concerned with the sanctity of the original work, I had my worries too. But the trailer assured me that I had nothing to worry. Plus, it's Will. The man has never disappointed me before! 8. A Whole New Woorrrrlllllldddddddd! Sigh. This is literally one of my all-time favourite Disney tracks and music videos. Aladdin and Jasmine starting something new as they soar about on that magic carpet...slowly falling in love...while singing...okay. Earth to Marina! Anyway, I'm gonna be belting this so hard in the movie hall, pretty sure they will have to fling me out. 9. Abu & Rajah While Rajah definitely looks super ferocious here, and not as cute as in the original, given that this is a live-action movie, Abu has managed to look mischievously adorable and still play a pivotal role in getting that lamp to Aladdin. 10. Jafar Becoming A Genie/Sorcerer This was literally a blink-and-miss shot. But what I could deduce from that second of a shot, is that this is when Jafar orders Genie to either change him into a genie himself or the greatest sorcerer in the world. Will have to wait for the movie to confirm that. So, there you have it. Now that we have broken down the trailer all the way, how about you let me know in the comment section as to which scene from the trailer was your favourite moment?
  16. Winter is finally coming knocking on every 'GOT' fan's door ever since the first trailer dropped and left us gasping for more. From the conniving smile of Cersei, a running Arya Stark thirsty for some revenge to Khaleesi and Jon Snow's fate, the tiny teaser dropped a hint of everything yet revealed nothing! The 'GOT' makers have now released an in-depth prosthetics video which gives you a peek into how the outer mould for many characters are built, including the mighty Night King. A video was released earlier which showed a little as to how the actor gets ready for the role, but this one here, is for the nerds. The war scenes, the images of the deceased or the injured, literally everything takes months of planning for the team who ensures that the authenticity of the characters and the show is strictly maintained. The average prosthetic makeup takes 6-8 weeks to build and over hours to put on the actors later. © HBO The mightily feared Night King is portrayed by actor Vladimir Furdik who bears the entire pain of putting on all that makeup and acting with it. Well, we can not only respect the actor more after watching this video but also give him a round of applause for his unbelievable patience.
  17. When the Nirav Modi scam made headline, the entire nation was shocked and surprised. The man behind a big diamond empire eloped the country right before the scam hit the papers and the government couldn't get him back to the homeland to punish him. However, people who flock from India have a way of finding a life beyond the border here. After Vijay Mallya was traced in UK, Nirav Modi was spotted chilling in London near his 8 million pounds apartment (roughly 72 Crore) by a reporter from Telegraph and his video has gone viral on social media. Exclusive: Telegraph journalists tracked down Nirav Modi, the billionaire diamond tycoon who is a suspect for the biggest banking fraud in India's historyhttps://t.co/PpsjGeFEsy pic.twitter.com/v3dN5NotzQ — The Telegraph (@Telegraph) March 8, 2019 The reporter persisted with a few question to Modi about the money he owed and how long he intended to stay in England. Nirav Modi's standard reply to every question was 'no comment'. He smiled and politely faded away in the crown as if he's a star being hounded for pictures. The report also claimed that Modi was wearing a jacket made from Ostrich hide which roughly costs around 9 lakh rupees, so clearly he's not as distraught as one might imagine him to be! Also, as per the report, he has resumed his business under a new name and is living a decent life.Nirav Modi was accused of committing one of the biggest frauds in the history of India and he owes PNB a sum of over 13,600 crores already. His uncle, Mehul Choksi who was also accused in the same case is already residing in Antigua and Barbada.
  18. Samsung made a huge splash last month at the UNPACKED event by announcing the Galaxy Fold. In case you've been living under a rock, the Galaxy Fold is a hybrid device with a tablet-sized screen inside which unfolds like a notebook. It looks futuristic, but we have our reservations about its practicality. Now, if the new reports are something to go by, it looks like Samsung is readying two more foldable phones with significantly different designs. According to Bloomberg's report, one of these devices will have a large screen that wraps around the outside of the device, much like Huawei's Mate X. The other device is said to be a vertically folding phone shaped like a clamshell. © BCCL The first phone, with an inward fold, sounds more fascinating since the Huawei's impressive Mate X looked more promising. It's less thick when folded and just looks more appealing and practical in general. However, it remains to be seen if Samsung has some other design up its sleeves. Moving on, the clamshell phone sounds more like the upcoming Moto RAZR, or Samsung's own W2019 flip phone that debuted last year. Additionally, Samsung is also said to incorporate the in-display fingerprint scanner into its foldable lineup, which, we believe will be more or less similar to the ones found on the Galaxy S10 phones. © YouTube Samsung's clamshell-style foldable phone is planned to release later this year or early 2020, and is said to be followed by the Mate X-style foldable phone. In the meantime, you can keep your eyes on the Galaxy Fold as it's set for a release in April.
  19. Respawn Entertainment's 'Apex Legends' is currently enjoying its time as one of the most popular Battle Royale titles of all time. The game recently hit 50 million players worldwide, which clearly means it's making some noise in the industry. Now that 'Apex Legends' has established a place for itself in the industry, it's important that we turn our attention to the future and see what Respawn Entertainment is cooking for us. Will there be a new map? New legends to play with? Yes, there are a lot of burning questions, so, here's everything we know about the Apex Legends battle pass: Apex Legends Roadmap Respawn Entertainment has always been pretty optimistic about the title and it even revealed its year one roadmap for the game during its launch last month. Here below is a peek at the roadmap: © Respawn Entertainment Yes, 'Apex Legends' season one will begin this month and the first battle pass will be available to purchase. We still don't have an exact date, but an anonymous source claims that March 12 will be the big day. Every new season, as you can see, will bring a new weapon (hopefully multiple weapons), legends, loot, and a new battle pass each time. We think there will also be an option to buy an annual battle pass, although there's no official word on that just yet. If everything goes as per the plan, then we'll get a new season every three months, which means the players are in for a slew of content throughout the year. Battle Pass Contents In the official Apex Legends FAQ page, the developer has clearly mentioned that the Battle Pass will reward players with exclusive cosmetic items. From legends and weapon skins to character quips and banner poses, we're expecting to see an influx of rewards. You'll also get Apex Packs, which will give you a chance of earning more cosmetic items. © Twitter The FAQ page also makes it very clear that new legends will not be a part of the Battle Pass. That, in all honesty, does make a lot of sense as the legends are a more valuable commodity and you can't have too many legends like, say, the skins. That being said, we think you'll be able to buy the new legends with Apex Coins or even with Legend tokens. Speaking of new legends, there are some leaks which suggest that we'll see a new legend named 'Octane' with some impressive abilities like restoring health, deployable jump pad, and more. We don't have all the info yet, but this is what the new legend could look like - © Electronic Arts Will There Be New Challenges? Challenges are the crux of every successful Battle Royale games like 'Fortnite'. Incentivize your challenges with high-quality rewards, and you can have the players engaged in your game for a long time. And if 'Apex Legends' truly wants to go head-to-head with the likes of 'Fortnite', then challenges would be a good place to start. However, there's no indication that the 'Apex Legends' Battle Pass will have any challenges just yet. © Respawn Entertainment How Much Will The Battle Pass Cost Respawn has remained tight-lipped about the Battle Pass so far, so your guess is as good as ours. But we hope 'Apex Legends' will undercut Fortnite's Battle Pass, which costs a little less than $10.
  20. The twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League is about to start in less than a month and the hype is escalating on a Godly level. To add fuel to the fire, the new promo has been launched and it surely does justice to all the madness that surrounds an entity that is potentially the most loved league in the country. 8 teams, 1 motto - 1 trophy ð The countdown to the 2019 #VIVOIPL begins ð§®âï¸ðð ARE YOU READY? pic.twitter.com/rk9h1gd8ng — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) March 5, 2019 In the new promo, a creative parallel has been drawn between the professional cricketers who represent the country on the international level and the young enthusiasts who keep the craze going on the streets. The minute-and-a-half footage deals with the two sides trying to fight against each other over the desire to play the game of cricket they both love equally. Both try to crush the other side behind the wall and acquire as much of the playing space as the can. There's a moment when the 'gully boys' are gaining advance over the Men in Blue, who are now dressed in the colourful jerseys of the cities they will be representing in the upcoming season and Thala aka Mahendra Singh Dhoni, makes an epic entry for his boys, driving a massive road-roller into the equation. This may be a tribute to Mahi's ability to show up in the clutch and like a superhero, single-handedly finish the game in favour of his side. MSD, however, also shows other characteristics of a superhero as he gets rid of the 'wall' that divided the young fans from the players, bringing the youngsters to his side. When one of the aspirants comes forward to introduce himself, the captain of Team India and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Virat Kohli stops him in his way and says: “Name chhodh… Game dikha.” This seems to be the narrative that is going surround this IPL season. With numerous new striplings making their way to all the glitz and glamour, it is their game that will help them make their name in the cricketing world. Fans on Twitter are running out of ways to praising this new promo: BEST IPL ADDDD EVER......ð¤©ð — Rahul Chakrabarty (@rahulchoco7) March 5, 2019 @iamkarthi_V Best promo till date. :) — Prabhu Kandasamy (@PrabhuK_PK) March 5, 2019 Entry of msâ¤ï¸ — Vamshi (@svamshi183) March 5, 2019 ð¥ð¥ð¥ðð — Ràjá RãjPûT (@Prabhat17605793) March 5, 2019 Brilliant!ð ð¶ðµð§ðµð¶ — Kedar Kulkarni (@outwidit) March 5, 2019
  21. The WWE has to be the Mecca for all the aspiring wrestlers and wrestling fans. No matter what corner of the world you are from, if you love that 20x20 foot ring, you have to know who The Undertaker, The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin are. In the modern era of the WWE, three superstars who are making a name for themselves and are loved unconditionally by the WWE Universe go by the names of Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods. Together forming 'The New Day', these performers have remained on top of the Tag-Team section for more than half a decade now. Some dreams will hit pause today, some others will prevail! An all important final day of #WWETryoutIndia commences! pic.twitter.com/ZsUyhdAqJm — WWE (@WWEIndia) March 5, 2019 The trio is currently in India for the WWE's Tryouts taking place in Mumbai. We got a chance to catch up with the believers of the “Power of Positivity” and asked them a few questions about what it takes for a wrestler to become successful in the WWE. MensXP: Hi guys, we at MensXP absolutely love 'The New Day' and as you could have guessed, we have a huge following for the WWE and of course, you guys. So, why don't we start by discussing your stay here? How's India treating you? Kofi: India is treating us very well. We've been here several times now. People here are so friendly and welcoming is amazing, you know? There's great energy in here and we're happy to be here for sure. Big E: Being able to be part of the crowd in India and seeing the kind of talent and athletes they have here, including some very large and impressive humans as well. Everyone here is so warm and so welcoming. Ohh yes! They are here and they're EXCITED... for #WWETryoutIndia and Indian Pancakes! ð¥ððª@TrueKofi @WWEBigE @XavierWoodsPhD #IndiaWelcomesTheNewDay pic.twitter.com/1Et2I4ENYc — WWE (@WWEIndia) March 3, 2019 MensXP: The New Day is obviously one of the more influential sets of superstars from the current roster. What does it take for a performer to become that successful in an organisation as unique as the WWE? Kofi: It definitely takes passion and drive to be on top. We're always trying to figure out how we can entertain at the highest level. As passionate as the WWE Universe is, they deserve it. You're going to get told “no” a lot and you have to figure out how you're going to succeed. The 'Power of Positivity' is not just something that we preached on TV. We bring that mentality to the workplace. Big E: From a physical standpoint, being in great shape helps. People see it on TV and they think: “Oh, I got this,” and they find out that it takes a toll on you, so you have to be in great shape. You look at The Rock and the Stone Cold, those guys had it both. The athleticism and the ability to capture people's attention. Xavier: We are on the road for 200 days a year. You have to be mentally prepared for because that's one of the parts that people don't really talk about. What we do outside of the ring is rewarding. For instance, visiting the children's hospital and being part of anti-bullying campaigns. .@WWE Superstars visit @CHNOLA ahead of #Wrestlemania34 https://t.co/Dr6V4v2Vgl pic.twitter.com/SunfZjRHuz — Children's Hospital (@CHNOLA) April 6, 2018 MensXP: What's the thought process that goes into coming up with a good gimmick? Also, who came up with the idea of The New Day as a concept? Was it you Xavier? Xavier: Yes. So for me, a gimmick or character is always better when it's you. At this point, if we were trying to be some tough dudes coming out kicking chairs all over, it's not something that necessarily fits what we are like in our personal lives. The three of us having this chemistry as the New Day, that has made it a lot easier and a lot more fun for us. MensXP: Are WWE stars possessive about the entrance music and the signature moves. How would you, Kofi Kingston react if you see Big E trying the 'Trouble in Paradise'? Big E: Well, can you imagine me attempting to do the 'Trouble in Paradise'? I would never! *Laughs* Kofi: If he can do the 'Trouble in Paradise', he can have the move. It would be the most impressive thing that I would have seen in a long time. It'd be all love. It's all good. Big E: I think for a lot of us, the keys to the business is standing out and having an identity that is memorable. So, I don't think we're possessive in a sense but yes, you want to stand out There's definitely people who are defensive, but for us, we kind of feel like we're in a nice niche. SUPER SUNDAY JUST GOT BETTER! ð The New Day has arrived and receives the traditional Indian welcome. ð¤©#TheNewDayInIndia #WWE #SPNSports @TrueKofi @WWEBigE @XavierWoodsPhD pic.twitter.com/kRJF84KtcO — SPN_Action (@SPN_Action) March 3, 2019 MensXP: You guys have the most bizarre narratives like coming out of the cereal box at Wrestlemania 32. So, how important is the art of storytelling for WWE superstars as yourselves? Xavier: It's everything. Yeah. Storytelling is huge. That's what captivates people and gets people's attention. It's great to be a great athlete, but if you're just a body, who really cares? In our industry, some people are great athletes but if they don't tell a story and they don't draw people in, they are no good. Big E: I think the best thing going right now in WWE is Kofi's story. After 11 years of being on the main roster and never getting that opportunity. That resonates with people. They are reacting the way they are because they've been along with him for this journey. Storytelling is huge.
  22. Microsoft Courier was a concept that combined two screens to fold over like a book, with a stylus for taking notes. We've already seen foldable phones that sport multiple displays, and Microsoft wants to bring a similar form factor to laptops. The most important element of a new form factor has to be its user interface. What's the use of integrating new specs, but the same old OS that adds nothing new to the end experience? To counter this, Microsoft could be working on a new "Windows Lite" OS that brings in support for dual displays. © PC World According to The Verge, Windows Lite's "interface will be similar to Windows as it exists today," but incorporate aspects of Microsoft's giant Surface Hub display and its Windows Phone Continuum interface. This means the company will focus on keeping touch as a primary mode of input. If the new software turns out to be a success, Microsoft could use it in single screen devices as well. Essentially, this would make it a direct competitor of Google's Chrome OS. The upcoming OS version is said to be the stripped-out version of the original OS instead of a completely new OS. © Microsoft Chrome OS may have a very tiny market share, but it has taken over the budget and low-end segment massively. For a normal user who needs a machine to access the browser, check emails, and complete basic tasks, Windows 10 is turning out to be very bulky. According to Windows Central, Microsoft is using the codename “Santorini” to refer to the shell work it is doing to make Windows Lite look and feel different than the Windows 10. Further reports from ZDNet add that Microsoft could also ship a dual-display laptop. © Microsoft This isn't the first time Microsoft has tried to create a lighter version of Windows. The new S-mode supports just Microsoft Store apps, but the OS carries along a lot of baggage from the legacy OS. Even before the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft had a brief stint with Windows RT, and it turned out to be a huge failure. This time around, the company is hoping to create a niche segment that offers a new form factor and bring in the much-needed portability features.
  23. There has been a lot of hype surrounding Apple's second-generation AirPods as they're expected to be significantly better than the original AirPods that debuted back in 2016. The new ones are said to have improved sound, always-on Siri support, and wireless charging, among other features. © YouTube/Airpods Yes, there's quite a lot of buzz around the wireless charging support, but a new leak suggests that the new AirPods could also support rapid charging which will allow you fully charge them in just 15 minutes. A tweet sent out by XDA member Max Weinbach claims that the battery level of AirPods 2, both the carrying case and the AirPods themselves, can go from 0-per cent to 100-per cent in just 15 minutes. It's way better than the current generation AirPods, which take hours to get charged. © Reuters The charging case is said to use Qi charging, although that can't be confirmed just yet. In his tweet, Max also noted that the case will be both bigger and heavier than the current one. As is the case with any other leak, there's no way to confirm this, so we suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt. Apple's first press event of the year is scheduled to be held on March 25 at Steve Jobs Theater at the Apple Park campus. Additionally, the company is also expected to make a few more interesting announcements like a video streaming service to compete with the likes of Netflix, Hulu, and more. Source: Twitter
  24. It's been almost four years since we've seen a brand new Halo game ever since 'Halo 5: Guardians'. 'Halo Infinite', is one of the most awaited follow-ups in the Halo franchise and we will finally get to see it at E3 2019. © 343 Industries 343 Industries, the studio that took charge of the 'Halo' franchise after Bungie, is going to be present at E3 later this year. Bonnie Ross, 343 Industries boss told IGN that the game director Chris Lee will discuss more details about the upcoming game in June. Currently, not much is known about 'Halo: Infinite, however, Ross did confirm that the game director will be discussing the new engine i.e. “SlipSpace”. 'Halo Infinite' was first announced at E3 2018 via a teaser that showed off the game's new engine's capabilities. The trailer showed a big space with warthog travelling the environment. It had beautiful vistas and massive landscapes. Since it was a teaser, we can't be entirely sure if this would be the end result in the full game. Having said that, it would be nice to see how the game has been shaping up in the past year. E3 is still one of the biggest gaming events where new games and products are announced. Since there is 'Infinite' in the title, we're expecting the new Halo game to be a big affair. It's also rumoured that Microsoft will announce two new consoles this year for the next generation. Halo Infinite's launch may also coincide with the launch of new consoles. © 343 Industries 'Halo Infinite' is expected to have RPG-style mechanics and is expected to be a “spiritual reboot” of the franchise. The game is expected to launch for Xbox One, PC and possibly the next-gen consoles. We will know more about 'Halo Infinite' later this year during E3, which is scheduled to commence on June 11th.
