  5. Mobile phones were not what they used to be back in the day. With very limited features and availability, it's safe to say that it wasn't a saturated market like it is today. It also encouraged a lot of manufacturers to come up with different, bold, and unique designs for their phones. Well, some of them were better than the others, of course. But we recently came across some very weird looking phones that made us wonder why do they even exist. On top of that, they turned out to be super expensive too. So, here are 5 ugly yet expensive phones - 1. Siemens Xelibri 6 © Siemens This particular phone was announced back in 2003. As you can see, it was targeted at women. The phone, well, it looks like a makeup case and sports two mirrors for makeup on the go. The keys were weirdly placed and the screen was just too small. Also, a version of this phone was priced at a whopping $300,000, which is absolutely insane. 2. Motorola StarTac Rainbow © YouTube/Nathan Barnatt Umm, this one looks like a kid's phone that you'd get for free, doesn't it? Yes, some people are into lively colours, but this legit looks like a toy rather than a phone. It looks super cheap but it was launched at over $1,000 back in the day. For the same price, you'd now get an iPhone 11 Pro. 3. F88 Wrist Phone © Ideaholic Do we even have to say anything after looking at this? So, it's a phone that you wear on your wrist and it's got a number pad that's integrated into the strap. There's also an antenna on the top. It was launched at around 8,888Yuan which roughly translates to around Rs 96,000. 4. Goldvish Le Million © YouTube/Goldvish Le Million We featured this phone in our list of the most expensive phones too, but just look at it. It looks very fancy with all the crystals, but isn't it ugly? Why would anyone in their right minds use it today? It was valued at $1.3 million, so there was clearly something about it that made people go crazy. 5. Motorola V100 © Motorola Last but not the least, we have the Motorola V100. It's not the first time we're seeing a design like this, but it's definitely the first time we're seeing a phone with this design. It looks like a toy calculator with a QWERTY keyboard that's uncomfortable to type. It also had a transparent body that made it looks worse. View the full article
  6. While we have looked into several mysteries and myths in the past, we have often discovered logical explanations for each one of them. The story of the ship named Mary Celeste, on the other hand, continues to remain unsolved over a century and a half later. What’s The Story? In 1872, a double-masted Mary Celeste set sail from New York Harbor towards Genoa, Italy. It was captained by Benjamin S. Briggs, an experienced sailor and with him were his wife, Sarah, their infant daughter Sophia and eight other members of the crew. Their next stop on #TheChase is the Mary Celeste... #London1965#DoctorWho pic.twitter.com/9DcAYz5EK0 — Kippy Woo (@TygerWhoCame2T) August 8, 2020 A month later, this ship was spotted by another sailing vessel of Canadian origin named Dei Gratia sailing through the North Atlantic Ocean, about 645 kilometres away from the Azores, an autonomous region of Portugal. Upon inspection, no sign of human life was found on the brigantine. However, it was stacked with food and water which was later estimated to be enough for over six months of survival. Aside from a missing lifeboat, the ship also looked unscathed. No signs of a natural disaster affecting the ship or a crash were found, which led to one of the most talked-about maritime mysteries of all time - what happened to the Briggs family and the eight crewmembers? Why would they abandon a perfect and damage-free ship? Read more about the weird circumstances surrounding Mary Celeste here: https://t.co/k9OiajACRl#unsolvedmysteries pic.twitter.com/5AYH7egwNT — ScareStreet (@ScareStreet) August 7, 2020 Mary Celeste’s Dark History: The ship, which was originally named Amazon, has been rather infamous throughout its past and is a source of numerous unfortunate events with the crewmembers. Its first captain ever, Captain McLellan mysteriously fell ill during the maiden voyage and his condition continued to worsen as he spent days on the ship. Amazon made its way to Spencer's Island, Nova Scotia, where McLellan died on June 19, 1861. John Nutting Parker, who took the ship’s wheel after the passing of McLellan, also fell prey to a series of misfortunes. First, it collided with fishing equipment at the Eastport, Maine, USA and crashed into another brig in the English Channel. In 1867, the Amazon got completely wrecked by a storm. The damage was so much that the owners had to abandon it on the shore of Cape Breton Island. The wreckage was bought by Alexander McBean who rebuilt the ship and named it Mary Celeste. Ever since, the vessel’s ownership changed a handful of times until it made its way to Benjamin S. Briggs. Proposed Theories: According to old folklore, carnivorous seaweed was said to be responsible for crew disappearances in the 1800s. In 1872, the ship Mary Celeste was found off the coast of Portugal aimlessly floating. Not a single crew member was anywhere to be found. #WyrdWednesday #History pic.twitter.com/tkXK2yBUah — Haunted History BC (@HauntedHistory2) August 5, 2020 Fiction fanatics came up with stories that ranged between a pirate attack and an assault by a giant sea monster. While those who were more scientifically inclined, suggested that mishap had something to do with the fumes from the 1,700 barrels of crude alcohol Mary Celeste was carrying at the time. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of the Sherlock Holmes series, also contributed to the legend when in 1884, he wrote a short story titled J. Habakuk Jephson's Statement suggesting that the Briggs family was slaughtered by an ex-slave in an act of vengeance. In 2007, Channel 4 International came up with a documentary titled The True Story of the Mary Celeste which suggested a rather unexciting theory (although inconclusive), according to which Briggs commanded everyone to abandon ship and row for the land, owing to the disastrous weather and a clogged onboard pump. There have been many stories about this incident. Numerous tabloids have tried to retell the story based on the evidence available onboard but nobody could come up with one satisfying theory. As time passes by and lores about the disappearance of the Briggs family continue to get added to the legend, what truly happened that day continues to be buried deeper and deeper.

  7. Leading veteran star (if there exists such a thing) of the Bollywood industry, Amitabh Bachchan has been one of the most active actors and delivered some of his finest performances in recent years. However, of late, first with the lockdown and now with the Maharashtra government’s suggestion of barring TV and film artistes above 65 years from resuming shootings, BigB expressed his concern about the fate of senior actors in the industry. Soon after, Amitabh Bachchan sought suggestions for “alternate work jobs” for himself on his blog post. Now, as per the latest developments, it turns out that a fan has offered a job opportunity to BigB and it’s so innovative that he happily claimed: “my job is now insured”. © BCCL Taking to his blog to post a follow-up story, he wrote, “Expect the unexpected from the Ef ever .. and one such brightness evolves in this creativity which kind of reflects one of my posers in the Blog.” He then went on to share his fan’s creative job offer that has him convinced now: Dear Mr Amitabh Bachchan, Re: Your Application for an alternate job vide Day 4539 In view of the permanent kind of temporary moratorium on work imposed on you by the governance due to your age, and the loss of revenue caused by the same, we are pleased to inform you that your application for an alternate job is temporarily under review for permanent reasons… (By the way, before we forget, please register our request that if you understand anything of what we are saying, please let us know too…) So, here is our offer - Sir, if you wish to do nothing, yet you want to feel as if you are something, then we suggest that you become the President of the United States… But if you want to do something which will last forever, then we suggest that you open a Peace Shop… Sell Peace… that shop can never go out of business… Let us draft a flowchart for you to prepare for the venture… 1) Vision - To provide a rolling plan for ways and means to acquire and sustain peace… 2) Mission - Make sure that it remains a rolling plan… Peace alive is peace dead… 3) Aims and Objectives - Define Peace, develop immeasurable standards for peace, and draft governance models for ensuring that the standards are impossible to achieve… 4) Policies - Develop and enforce codes of conduct which will make the objectives happen… 5) Systems - Draft and build an organisation of functions which are both horizontally and vertically indefinite… Make sure that everything and everyone is included… 6) Procedures - Develop and establish procedures for each function such that no single procedure is standalone… every procedure must rely on another to produce results… 7) Standards - Establish standards for each procedure… Make sure that the standards are not auditable… we live in a democracy… Use the preamble to beat audits… 8) Codes of Practice - Adopt all new codes of practice… Remember, history is recorded for telling us what has been defeated in the past… Historical successes are compromised… We sincerely hope that you will lead our temporary enterprise… We will wrap it up as soon as it shows signs of positive results… Looking forward to your favourable response, and assuring you of our best services at all times, We remain, Yours truly, Sd/- Who would have thought a commoner’s job offer would please Amitabh Bachchan so much?

  8. We know that our cricketers love to spend some really good money on their watches, especially, the younger lot. People like Hardik & Krunal Pandya, have often been spotted wearing timepieces that are more expensive than 3-4 BHK flats in New Delhi. Others like MS Dhoni, like to keep things simple, but elegant. © Twitter/yuzi_chahal A few days back the 30-year-old spinner and former chess player announced that he got engaged to Dhanashree Verma, a choreographer and one of the most widely followed dance instructors on YouTube. © Twitter/yuzi_chahal Chahal got engaged in a simplistic, but elegantly embroidered set of kurta & pyjama. He paired the outfit with a very elegant pair of maroon loafers. Classy, simple and very tasteful, if you ask us.However, the highlight of the outfit was the watch that Yuzvendra is seen wearing. © Rolex Representational Image. Yuzvendra is wearing the Oyster Datejust with a slate grey face. The “oystersteel” & gold watch has a fluted bezel as opposed to a plain one. It also has Rolex’s jubilee chain-strap, and a slate grey face. All these customisations set the price at about Rs 8.67 Lakhs. © PrestigeTime All in all, Yuzvendra has a great horological sense. Way to go Yuzi, we hope you surprise us with tons of other elegant and distinguished timepieces. View the full article
  9. If you’ve ever wondered how far we’ve come when it comes to mobile phones, we would like to take you back to 1973. It was the time when Motorola showcased the first mobile phone of the world that weighed 2 Kilograms and was bigger than any phone we’ve used in recent memory. While this phone was still a prototype, it was used to demonstrate cellular technology almost 47 years ago. © Wikipedia Commons Due to the development of large-scale integration (LSI) technology and metal-oxide semiconductors; it led to the development of the world’s first affordable mobile communications device. While the first commercially available mobile phone didn’t arrive before 1984; the first-ever mobile device was shown by Martin Cooper of Motorola almost eleven years before. The company later released the world’s first commercially available handled cellular phone called the Motorola DynaTac 8000x. It was a more refined version of the prototype that weighed considerably less and was a bit smaller as well. The refined version weighed around 790 g which is still quite heavy and unwieldy by today’s standard. © Wikipedia Commons To put things into perspective, the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x is still considerably large when compared to phones today. The phone was also quite expensive as it retailed for $3,995 ($9,831 in today’s money) at the time and was not considered a mass-market item in 1983. The phone was powered by a lithium-ion battery, something we still use today in our smartphones. The phone was also used to place the first commercial wireless call as David D. Meilahn called Bob Barnett, former president of Ameritech Mobile Communications from his 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL. © Motorola Legacy Archives While we may consider the phone to be extremely bulky today and quite unwieldy; the phone was considered to be revolutionary at the time. Mobile telephones were limited to cars or heavy briefcases at the time and the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x was the first true wireless handheld mobile phone. The phone also did not need any assistance from a mobile operator and users could directly call people if they knew the number. The phone was extremely popular as well and Motorola couldn’t make them fast enough to meet the demand. The phone wasn’t really made for teenagers and somewhat became a necessity for business owners that led to this phone’s success. © Motorola Legacy Archives The DynaTAC series phones are all but obsolete today as it used analogue networks or AMPS which are not used by network providers. The phone has now become more of a collector’s item for enthusiasts. What do you think about the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x and would you be able to use it today? Let us know in the comment what you think about the godfather of every mobile phone that followed. View the full article
  10. Kartik Aaryan is an outsider who has now become a well-known Bollywood actor and filmmakers like Imtiaz Ali and Karan Johar have placed their bets on him. He struggled during his initial years when he came to Mumbai and many auditions later he got Luv Ranjan’s Pyaar Ka Punchnama in 2011. His journey in Bollywood is one to be looked upon and he has only done a handful of movies in and he is getting his due with each passing film. He is one actor who cut through dynasty and discrimination to carve his success in the industry. So, here are 5 Kartik Aaryan movies that define his career in Bollywood- Pyaar Ka Punchnama Pyaar Ka Punchnama is a Luv Ranjan directorial and a romantic comedy that won people’s hearts. The movie starred Kartik Aaryan, Raayo S. Bakhirta, Divyendu Sharma, Sonnalli Seygall, Nushrat Bharucha, and Ishita Raj Sharma in the film. The film’s storyline revolves around three bachelors and their love life. The film was a hit and was able to capture decent numbers at the box-office. Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 This film was also directed by Luv Ranjan and the storyline of the film was similar to the lines of the first part. But this time this romantic comedy was something that the audience was looking forward to. This film made everyone notice Kartik Aaryan and that’s how his journey of stardom started playing a role. Also, part 2 performed better on the box-office and Kartik Aaryan won millions of hearts. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety Now, we all want a best-friend like Sonu who’d care so much for us and pull us out of all problems. Also, the comic timing of the character in the film is entertaining to an extent that even if some scenes don’t make sense, you’ll still have a good time. However, every-time you watch the film you’ll realize that the film is a love story about Sonu and Titu and Sweety is playing a supporting role. Pati Patni Aur Woh The film stars Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar, and Ananya Panday in the lead role. The plot of the film revolves around how a married man, who is happy in his married life, started feeling infatuated to another woman who is career-oriented and fashionable. The film is problematic on many levels but still worked at the box-office. Luka Chuppi The film stars Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles. The film focuses on many aspects like how to live in relationships are still taboo in small towns. The story revolves around how the protagonists' parents find out about their live-in relationship and their whole life turns into chaos. View the full article
  11. If you are blinded by the fact that the movie is headed by a star kid, then you are being unfair to the story of an unsung hero who we have completely ignored and didn’t talk about much. It’s the story of brave Gunjan Saxena, who became one of the first two women to fly in a combat zone during the 1999 Kargil War. In all the chaos of nepotism, we might forget that the movie is based on Gunjan Saxena and also stars actors like Pankaj Tripathi and Vineet Kumar Singh. The movie does dramatize Gunjan’s journey but manages to not go overboard with it. Sharan keeps the tone of the movie very humble and true to what the officer told him. The movie does deserve a watch because of the director’s attempt as not much information was available on Gunjan Saxena. The movie goes beyond the aspect of just celebrating Gunjan as it focuses on how supportive a father can be in the times when women were not allowed to chase their dreams. It’s a story of inspiration and courage even after being bogged down by the patriarchal notions. Coming to performances, Janhvi Kapoor did a decent job in portraying Gunjan Saxena. Well, it was expected more from her but she fell flat in the sequences where she had to be emotionally powerful. There’s a particular scene where she had to show that women are being suppressed by men but Janhvi couldn’t convey it powerfully. But, in the happy scenes, Janhvi did her bit and you would love her chirpiness. © Netflix Pankaj Tripathi as Gunjan’s father will make you fall in love with his character because he does no drama while portraying and keeps it very real. He is a father who wants his daughter to chase her dreams. Pankaj has, time and again, proved that he is someone who can pull off the easiest and most difficult of the roles. In the movie, he is a symbol of the progressive thought process and a man who believes in the concept of woman empowerment. © Netflix Vineet Kumar Singh as an Army officer depicts a more common portrayal of how men back in the 90s were. Back in those days, it was hard for men to accept that women can be pilots too, and here, Gunjan had joined the Air Force and is proving the old set notion wrong. Vineet is used as a symbol for men who can’t let their egos be defeated by women. His character tries everything possible to make it hard for Gunjan to survive in the male-dominated world. Vineet adds his charm to the character and he captures every scene in the movie. © Netflix Angad Bedi got less screen space and he plays the character of Gunjan’s brother. He is a metaphor for men who want to safeguard the interests of the women in the family. He is not very comfortable with Gunjan entering into the territory of men. He wants to protect her from the harsh society but in the end, he realizes that he doesn’t have to stop his sister from growing in his life. © Netflix Manav Vij and Ayesha Raza are also those actors who convincingly portray their characters. © Netflix © Netflix The problem with the movie is that it feels so rushed at the end. As a viewer, you would want to see more of the Kargil sequence and would be left a little less satiated. It would have been interesting if there were more of Kargil sequence. The editing and cinematography do give justice to the movie as they are done in accordance with the tone of the movie. I also loved the sound design aspect of the movie. In a nutshell, the script is good and you can enjoy it as a one-time watch. Also see it for Pankaj Tripathi, Vineet Kumar Singh, and Manav Vij. View the full article
  12. Chinese company Huawei said that the company is facing a shortage of smartphone chips due to US sanctions and will have to stop making new devices by mid-September. The company lost access to America suppliers for key components due to which the company is facing shortages according to a report by Associated Press. © Reuters The company has been in the middle of a long-running dispute between the U.S. and China over technology and security. The U.S. has accused Huawei of having backdoors in their networking systems that could be accessed by the Chinese government. The U.S. government placed the company on an “Entity List” which prohibits American companies to do business with Huawei or sourcing components for their products. This also resulted in Huawei phones not being able to support Google applications and the Play Store for devices sold outside of China. © Reuters The executive order by President Trump was extended to May 2021 and the US Commerce Department blocked the acquiring of semiconductors by Huawei as a part of an amended export rule. The rule also prevents foreign manufacturers of semiconductors who use American software and technology in their operations for manufacturing their products. This includes the world’s biggest semiconductor manufacturer i.e. TSMC who halted orders from Huawei silicon unit. Even though the ban has persisted over a year, Huawei still managed to beat Samsung as the world’s largest smartphone company. Huawei shipped more phones between April and June than any other company according to a report by Canalys. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla However, with the way things are going; Huawei may have depleted their stock of smartphone chips that were purchased before the ban was imposed. It seems like Huawei has finally run out of its stock of smartphone chipsets and will probably have to halt smartphone production until the company gets its hands on more chipsets.

  13. PUBG, Counter-Strike, and Dota are said to be some of the most popular titles on Steam. They account for millions of active players every single day. But every so often, we see a game that just steals all the attention. Well, Fall Guys is one of those games. Fall Guys is essentially a Battle Royale game in which you enter the arena with a lot of other players and your objective is to survive till the end. But instead of surviving with weapons and smarts, your objective here is to make it through all the obstacles. © Devolver Digital Playing Fall Guys is basically as close as we'll ever get to going on Takeshi's Castle. You drop in with 59 other players and the rest is all about having fun out there. Here, watch this trailer - Each Fall Guys session takes place over five rounds of elimination contests. In every round, you control a bean-shaped "fall guy". You'll jump through obstacle courses, swinging between platforms and pendulums trying to throw you off the game. It's a lot of fun to play, especially with your friends. The team behind Fall Guys said they saw 1.5 million players within the first 24 hours of the release. That's an insane number considering the fact it came out of nowhere. Steam database numbers reveal that Fall Guys is more popular than GTA 5 and has a more concurrent number of players. When we say Fall Guys is experiencing a lot of traffic... We had over 1.5 million new players in the first 24 hours! We're working on our first patch for the game, listening to ALL of your feedback and ideas, and are super grateful to everyone who's supported so far! ️ pic.twitter.com/OpD714xu26 — Fall Guys (@FallGuysGame) August 5, 2020 Fall Guys even comes close to PUBG. It may not have surpassed PUBG, but the fact it's already up there on the top means that it's a lot more popular than PUBG too. There's also a lot of buzz around it online, more than PUBG ever had. Fall Guys is available for just Rs 529, which we think is a really good price. It's a lot of fun to play and we think it's one of the best online games out there right now. Be sure to check it out if you're looking for something new to play with your friends. The game is available to play on PC and PS4. Check out Fall Guys on Steam View the full article
