  1. Activision released the first Modern Warfare title in 2007 titled 'Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare' and it's one of the best COD titles of all time. Well, it was remastered with better graphics and was released as 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. In the meantime, we also got 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' and 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3'. Now, the fourth instalment in the Modern Warfare series is going to be out this year, and it looks like it'll be called, wait for it, 'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare'. Yes, we will never understand video games and their weird naming schemes. The news about this year's new 'Call of Duty' title was leaked by a YouTube creator named “LongSensation”. Activision has apparently been showing the game to the press and a select few 'influencers', so we don't see why this couldn't be true. If it wasn't obvious enough, the new 'Call of Duty' will be a 'soft reboot' of the first one. It'll most likely have a gripping single-player campaign with 'realistic emotional moments' inspired by the controversial 'No Russian' campaign from Modern Warfare 2. More than the game's arrival or its story, hard-core 'Call of Duty' fans are not particularly happy with the name. It's not what they expected and they're taking it all out on social media: “It's absurd” I can confirm this is true, and that it's hilarious. The first one was "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" so obviously the fourth one is "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare." Video games are absurd https://t.co/Ghb1m2srC4 — Jason Schreier (@jasonschreier) May 24, 2019 Buying the wrong game is certainly not an option. It's funny. Not so many options tho. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. But then they already have a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remaster. So will the next one be older? ð¤ Some people will get buy the wrong game... — Matt Wagner ð¦ (@Kenturrac) May 24, 2019 Oops! Sorry, grandma. Grandma is gonna be so confused at Christmas getting the game for Timmy now. — Young Pepsi (@IsaacP_03) May 24, 2019 It's not just COD. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Modern Warfare 2 CALL OF DUTY: Modern Warfare 3 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (cod4 remake) Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (Reboot) Why do so many movie and video game franchises have such inconsistent naming conventions???𤢠— Jamie Faith (@JamieF4178) May 24, 2019 LOL. New Call of Duty: I'll call myself Modern Warfare!! Call of Duty 4: pic.twitter.com/SBMLB4mU2P — John F. Kennedy (@The35thPres) May 24, 2019 Cancel COD? Can the COD franchise just be cancelled already https://t.co/iIr0xfr5Ac — Corey (@c_winez) May 24, 2019 These aren't the only ones. Twitter is flooded with a ton of angry comments on the game's name and Activision's decision to reboot the series. You know what? Maybe let's just stick to 'Call of Duty Mobile' for now.
  2. You're not alone if you're a little taken aback at this development. I read this news first thing this morning and am still trying to process it. Not that I have anything against Robert Pattinson, the man does a rather brilliant job in movies, but casting him as one of the most iconic DC heroes? Yea, I'm gonna need a minute. It's official: Robert Pattinson is our #Batman. And here... We... Go! pic.twitter.com/WZF0gxAJMa — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) May 17, 2019 So, Pattinson has apparently been locked down for the role of the caped crusader in Matt Reeves' upcoming project, 'The Batman' and Nicholas Hoult, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Armie Hammer are “simply frontrunners to step in for Pattinson in the event he's unable to strike a multi-picture deal with Warner Bros.,” Collider reported quoting sources. Turns out Pattinson had been a top favoured choice for the role for a while now, as Reeves was looking for an actor between 25 and 33, and the 'Twilight' star fits the bill. Things are bound to be set in motion rather quickly with this heavy development in the headlines now, as production is set to begin soon and Warner Bros. will release the movie on June 25, 2021. © Fox Pictures However, keep in mind, that Warner Bros. is yet to make an official statement, so anything is possible and maybe, just maybe, Pattinson will never show up as Gotham's saviour. Just saying. But if he is officially announced as Batman, he will be the youngest actor ever to play the role, which will be quite amazing. So, as I was wrapping my head around all this and slowly getting into my classic pessimistic 'he-sucks-and-will-kill-my-Batman' mode, I paused and told my non-believing a*s to calm the fu*k down and think back to when I had the same knee-jerk reaction when Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot were cast as Batman and Wonder Woman, respectively. © Warner Bros I was convinced to my core that these people were going to crash and burn so hard, but when I saw them come alive on the big screen, all my doubts just went 'poof'. I mean come on, can you even think of anyone else except Gal as Diana? The same could happen in this case. So, I think all of us should first calm down, stop saying shit like 'fuu**kkk, he is gonna ruin Affleck's legacy' and remember that the 'Twilight' series happened frikkin ages ago, so it is nothing but dim-witted and pointless to compare his works from 2008-2012, to what he is capable of doing now. Right? Check out his recent works and you'll see what I am talking about. Anyway, a lot of DC fans didn't get my memo on 'staying calm' and collectively lost their shit, flooding Twitter with a mixed bag of reactions, ranging from 'f*ck yeaaa!! to 'kill me now'. Take a look, and please don't follow their footsteps: ROBERT PATTINSON HAS TO BE CAST AS BATMAN OR I WILL KILL MYSELF — Ù (@chaeparke) May 17, 2019 Robert pattinson for batman?!? That's why dc is failing — yanbae ð©ðª (@xxynsph) May 17, 2019 He will be the MOODIEST Batman yet and we won't even have to deal with stupid voice machine cause Robert Pattinson is a true intellectual who will say f*ck no im British my faux American accent is funny enough. Ben Affleck who? https://t.co/eixAWaKnob — sarah â¤ï¸ (@xosarahmarieeee) May 17, 2019 Robert Pattinson is going to be the new Batman, proving to us all that vampires really do turn into bats pic.twitter.com/UW1TApFHbj — Kelsey (@notkelseyleigh) May 17, 2019 Me leaving the MCU fandom after they killed Iron Man to enter the DCEU after they announced Robert Pattinson as Batman. pic.twitter.com/oe1qP03iid — BLHiiiiee (@3000gv) May 17, 2019 Leaked photo of Robert Pattinson #Batman suit. pic.twitter.com/3YoZaQsyF8 — MoØ­ib (@OkarimMD) May 17, 2019 All those people complaining about Robert Pattinson being the new Batman clearly haven't watched any of his movies. pic.twitter.com/io6uWgrgO7 — someday (@robstenmemories) May 17, 2019
  3. The next generation of consoles is a hot topic right now in the gaming world even though no concrete release date has been confirmed yet. Having said that, Sony and Microsoft both have hinted what the next generation consoles will be all about. Mark Cerny, PlayStation's lead architect has already confirmed a few specifications and Xbox architect said that the Xbox Two (or whatever they decide to call it) will be even more powerful. The two consoles are already at battle with each other and we size up each of the consoles to find out who will rule the next generation of gaming: Graphics Fidelity © AMD As of now, we sort of know that the PlayStation 5 will have a GPU based on Ryzen's Navi architecture. It has now been confirmed that the PS5 will also support some form of ray-tracing. It will also support 8K graphics but not much is known how this will be achieved. This is purely based on reliable leaks and AMD has also hinted about it at its press events. On the other hand, the Xbox Two's GPU specification is completely unknown as nothing major has leaked as of now. However, some leaks say that the next Xbox will come in two variants, one being as powerful or more powerful than the PS5 and a cheaper model that will focus more on game streaming. Both Sony and Microsoft are aiming higher than the 10.7 TFLOPS benchmark which is higher than anything we've seen on a console before. The performance will reportedly compete with Google's Stadia streaming service as the company has promised the same performance for its service. Storage © YouTube Read and Write speeds are essential to cut download times in games and Sony has already confirmed that the company will be using an SSD that is considerably faster than what is available today. It is said to be faster than the current PC SSDs and will essentially result in faster load times when compared to the PS4/PS4 Pro. Microsoft has not detailed any specifications about the next generation but we can expect a similar SSD configuration for the next Xbox. Whether it will be faster than PS5 still remains to be seen. Backward Compatibility © Microsoft The Xbox One already supports backward compatibility on some games and it is likely that Microsoft will double-down on this policy. We can expect the next Xbox to support Xbox One games along with many Xbox 360 games. Mark Cerny has sort of confirmed that Sony's next console will be backwards compatible, unlike the PS4. It will also be compatible with PS4 VR games and the headset. Game Streaming Microsoft has already shown off Project xCloud, which is the company's new game streaming service that works on Android, PC and PCs. This will enable users to play games on any device they like and works somewhat similar to Google's Stadia service. Sony already has a game streaming service called “PlayStation Now” that doesn't really work as advertised. The service is currently not up to the mark and is unlikely to be able to match Microsoft's cloud computing prowess. Exclusive Games © Sony PlayStation The ultimate question that every console gamer is concerned about is the exclusive game library on each console. Currently, PlayStation's exclusive game library is far larger than what Microsoft has to offer and we can assume that future games like “The Last of Us: Part II”, “Ghost of Tsushima”, and “Death Stranding” will all be launch titles for the PlayStation 5 in addition to their complimentary launches for the PlayStation 4. Microsoft did announce acquisitions of new studios and we can expect the company to announce a few new games at E3 this year. As of now, we only know about “Halo Infinite” and it seems like 343 Industries is still in the early stages of development for the game. Who Will Rule The Next Generation? © BCCL To be honest, it is hard to pick a winner with very less information available right now. While both consoles have a robust community, Sony has an upper hand with exclusive titles. Having said that, if the future of gaming is streaming, we can expect Microsoft to give a better experience than Sony and could play a factor in its success. Both consoles seem to be very similar when it comes to technical specifications but we can only be sure once both companies officially unveil the two consoles.
  4. The weekend is here and that means the next episode of 'Game of Thrones' is almost at our doorstep and so are the speculations of what will and what will not happen. The teaser already gave us a few pointers on what we can expect and with Missandei dead and Khaleesi fuming in anger, one can expect the beginning of a major war in King's Landing. There are a few unseen pictures that do provide a clearer picture of what to expect in the next episode, including a new foe for Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. The army has arrived in King's Landing and the atmosphere is tense. © HBO © HBO In case you forgot, Cersei Lannister is not only enjoying the love and support of Euron Greyjoy, but is also being backed by the Golden Company. Harry Strickland is here, guys. © HBO © HBO Khaleesi is pretty sad and knowing her, revenge is most certainly on the cards. Gory and dark revenge. © HBO Also, Cersei is in a pensive mode, planning and plotting more deaths, we guess. We can't wait to see what happens and what fate brings in for our favourite characters. In case you are not going to catch it early morning on Monday, then you can also catch it on Star World at 10 pm.
  5. According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple has started to finalise locations for its first retail store that is set to open in India soon. The report said that the company has 'redoubled its efforts' in India to open its first store in an upscale location. © Pexels The first location is said to be in Mumbai and will probably be at a site similar to iconic locations such as Orchard Street in Singapore, Regent Street in London and Gift Avenue in New York. Currently, Apple sells its products via authorised partners only, as the company did not meet local manufacturing and sourcing requirements. Apple has now increased manufacturing in India and is currently in talks with the Government for a retail store, the report says. Wistron's factory application for a new $1 billion factory in India was recently approved by the country's IT ministry, which means Apple will soon have an additional manufacturing unit here in India. The new factory will be manufacturing Apple's iPhone 8, in addition to the iPhone SE, 6S, and AirPods. Additionally, the Foxconn project is also in progress, which could be commissioned to assemble the rest of the iPhone line-up including the new iPhone XS, XS Max and XR © Pexels “India is a very important market in the long term,” Cook said after the company's earnings report last week. “It's a challenging market in the short term, but we're learning a lot. We plan on going in there with sort of all of our might.” Last month, Apple slashed prices for the iPhone XR and offered a price cut of Rs 17,000. The price cut resulted in good sale numbers for Apple's latest smartphone and it seems like Apple is gearing up for a far more competitive strategy. Source: Bloomberg
  6. The article contains spoilers, proceed with caution! Our favourite travelling duo was spotted once again in Season 8, episode 4 of 'Game of Thrones', riding South together and we might know, through their conversation, who may die next. After turning down Gendry's proposal of being the Lady of Storm End, Arya meets The Hound, who is on his way out of Winterfell and she joins him and they continue their journey to King's Landing. Now, there are mainly two reasons why Arya and The Hound may both be heading South. For The Hound, it's been speculated far too long that there will be an eventual battle between him and his elder brother The Mountain aka Ser Gregor Clegane. So much so, their eventual battle has been dubbed 'Cleganebowl' by the fans and it's bound to happen. Otherwise why else have they kept The Hound alive still? © HBO Apart from The Hound's work in Winterfell, Arya also has names to strike off from her list and one of them also seems to be that of The Mountain. Besides, before heading to Winterfell initially, she was actually going to King's Landing to kill the queen, aka Cersei Lannister, so maybe now that her job is done in Winterfell, she's going to take care of her OG plan? All we know, for now, is that both Arya and The Hound together agreed upon never setting foot in Winterfell again, and that could either mean one of them is dying or is actually done with his or her character arc. © HBO After taking The Hound off her list, The Mountain takes the top spot on Arya's list for killing and torturing people at Harrenhal, while Arya was imprisoned there. In fact, he happens to be the three remaining targets that Arya names to the Waif in Season 6, including Walder Frey and Cercei, out of which she's already killed Frey. Which means two of her targets are still alive and both are in King's Landing, so she knows what to do next. Our only assumption is, since Arya and The Mountain share an enemy, it could be a two vs one fight, for all you know. Both of them will get into a fight with The Mountain and in order to protect Arya, The Hound will sacrifice himself, before she successfully kills his brother. © HBO Well, we're making this assumption from a conversation between The Hound and Arya where he asks her if she will leave him to die again if he gets hurt, foreshadowing towards the fact that maybe these two will stick up for each other in a big fight. Apart from that, Arya may kill Cersei since it's been predicted by the Red Woman that she will kill someone with green eyes and Cersei has green eyes. The only thing is, Cersei's fortune teller form her childhood told her that one of her 'little brothers' will kill her. There's a theory for that too, but we're not quite sure how Cersei's death will unfold. © HBO For now, we do know The Hound and Arya are back on the road again, on a long and lonesome highway!
  7. It looks like 'Game Of Thrones' is saving the major deaths for episode 5 in the last running season of the show. In the past 8 seasons, only the wittiest or the luckiest have been able to survive the gruesome bloodshed, that started following the death of Ned Stark in Season 1. The Battle Of Winterfell, in the fourth episode of Season 8, promised a brutal fight that, however, did not result in as many deaths as were expected. The following episode, 'The Last of the Starks' also came with a set of shocking deaths, namely Missandei and the mighty dragon Rhaegal. The latter denting the Dragon Queen's army considerably. After the battle with the Undead against the Night King, Dany's forces are not just depleted in number now but are also deprived of the stamina to fight another major war. © HBO All of this leads to Varys discussing with Tyrion as to how the numbers of Cersei's army are now distressingly even with that of Dany's. However, with the possible death of Rheagal, one of Dany's surviving two dragons, does it change things? The preview of Episode of Season 8 hints towards a possible surprise. The episode is obviously going to be a showdown between Dany and Cersei and the battle for the (ugly looking) Iron Throne that symbolizes the power of the Seven Kingdoms. But if you look at the preview closely, you might notice that everyone's looking into the void at something that surprises them. Here, take a look: Do you see it? And, if you replay the audio a couple of times, you'll notice that there are two distinct screeching dragon sounds in the background. Yep, clearly, this means they see something they did not expect at all. Also, when Cersei asks Euron if he's “certain” about Rhaegal's death, he tells her that he saw him sink beneath the waves. Which means no one actually checked to see if there was actually a body. Could it be that Rhaegal is not really dead?
  8. The last episode of 'Game Of Thrones' was full of darkness and terror, just like the cinematography of the battle of Winterfell. With the Night King meeting his destined death at the hands of the newly crowned hero Arya Stark, today's episode had a lot riding on it in terms of content and key checkpoints for the finale. Now many feel it was boring but then they have so many story lines to end and very little time left, so therefore it was all about building up for the upcoming war. © HBO Now with one dragon presumably dead or gone out of the two and Missandei dying at Cersei's hand, Khaleesi is only burning in rage. The preview of the next episode is interesting in parts and while it does not give out a lot, it still gives out enough to fathom what is coming. It shows a glimpse of fear on Cersei's face, nervousness on Tyrion's face and a "WTF just happened" look on Euron Greyjoy's face. The only sound we hear properly is the screeching arrival of the dragon. Now will Drogon spit fire and burn this dude? Who knows! © HBO Now Dany is vengeful at the moment and she might just kill for the catch and Cersei's head. Varys and Tyrion are at loggerheads because of the options available in front of them and with Tyrion swearing his loyalty to Khaleesi, Varys is exploring options. 12th May is when we get to witness the crazy war so until then, let the assumptions flow.
  9. I feel like the pressure on 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is simply increasing by the day, because it's the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to come out after 'Avengers: Endgame'. Imagine you're in a talent competition and you find out you're going after say, Beyonce! And, no, this is not me hating on 'Spider-Man', that's not the case. Just stating a fact. But, we know the movie will do good because people love Tom Holland and his portrayal of Peter Parker. But, since it's coming out so soon after 'Endgame', it is bound to be connected to the movie, especially since Peter Parker is basically Tony Stark's 'ward'. Since it's confirmed that the events of 'Far From Home' take place shortly after the events of 'Endgame', it's not just the movie that will have spoilers for 'Endgame', but the trailer as well. Reportedly, the next trailer for 'Far From Home' - which is expected to drop on 6th May - might contain spoilers about 'Avengers: Endgame'. And, Marvel has reportedly decided to be nice for once and put a spoiler warning before the trailer, and Tom Holland himself will do the honours of that. Apparently, right before the trailer, a clip of Tom Holland will come and warn people about the spoilers. Yes, I see the irony, Tom Holland, the guy infamous for giving spoilers, will give a spoiler warning. 'ENDGAME' SPOILERS AHEAD I think it's safe to assume that 'Far From Home' will have Peter mourning and coping with Tony Stark's death but will they bring that right up in the trailer? Quite possible. Or maybe, the trailer will show that some people at Peter's school are now five years older, since it's not possible that every single one of them disintegrated after 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Side note: How is it possible that all of Peter's friends got disintegrated and then came back? I mean, it was a random selection of half the population but all of them seem to be back and are the same age, while we saw in 'Endgame' that everyone else who didn't turn to dust was five years older now. Is this a possible plot hole? Also, Marvel, please don't show Peter crying because of Tony's death, it'll be too hard to deal with. One more possibility for the 'Endgame' connection in 'Far From Home' is Mysterio's abilities, which include special effects and illusions, so what if he uses Tony, to manipulate Peter? That seems quite possible but it's also so brutal. Whatever it is, we'll just have to wait till Monday to find out. 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' will release on July 2nd.
  10. The battle we've all been waiting for since the end of time, has finally come to an end, and the Night King no longer exists to torment, torture and kill the living. The 'Battle of Winterfell' did get a mixed bag review, as some seemed to have really liked how things ended, while many were disappointed with the abrupt ending and no closure whatsoever. Even so, this was a final goodbye to most of the bad guys and some good guys in the episode and now, it's time to face the eventual enemy- Cersei, in King's Landing. © HBO We're not sure what lies ahead in the upcoming episode but we do know we're going to witness a lot of mind games, negotiations, hate and sarcasm along with a battle in all probability for the Iron Throne. While Cersei and Euron wait out the Winterfell folks, we're sure there are going to be many revelations about the Battle of Winterfell that'll come forth in this episode. © HBO For now, we have enough fodder with us to speculate what can happen in episode 4 of 'GoT' Season 8, since HBO is teasing us with pictures from the next episode, which came out yesterday. It seems like people in Winterfell are joyous about the victory and crushed about losing a lot of people. They're also planning the next big face-off and Dany seems quite content throughout. Here, take a look: (1) It's Time To Take In Suggestions And Decide What's Next. © HBO (2) Euron Definitely Wants To Get Into Cersei's Pants & Make A Baby But Knowing Cersei, Maybe She Has Other Plans? © HBO (3) See What We Mean By She Seems Content? © HBO (4) Folks At Winterfell Mourning The Dead. © HBO (5) He Truly Did Have The Weight Of The World On His Shoulders. © HBO (6) And There They Go, With Their Ships & Troops To King's Landing. © HBO (7) Here's Bidding A Final Goodbye To The People Who Laid Down Their Lives In The Battle Of Winterfell. © HBO (8) They Will Always Burn The Dead Now. © HBO So, there we have it. A glimpse into the upcoming episode 4. We know that Winterfell is mourning their soldiers and the others they lost. Jon and the gang are distraught, but they really need to think about the next possible strategy to defeat the enemy on the east coast of Westeros. Apart from that, the dragons and their mother seem fine. They have their fleet intact and are taking it with them to King's Landing. There's a saying that there's always a Stark present at Winterfell at any given point in time, so we're under the assumption that Bran may stay back? Well, let's find out on Monday, shall we? For now, have fun with these pictures and assume your best!
  11. Drake means well, but even he can't help but unintentionally cause a lot of damage. Drake's curse is a proven phenomenon that has been building up for years now. Basically, whenever Drake supports anyone publically - mostly a sportsperson or a sports team - they end up losing their next big match. Now, fans are worried for Arya Stark's well-being all because of Drake. The King of the North shouting out everyone's favorite Stark! ðº @Drake #BBMAs pic.twitter.com/MEhLAzKiTM — Billboard Music Awards (@BBMAs) May 2, 2019 This is not a one off thing, all the data and proof for it has been meticulously recorded by people over the years. The curse apparently hurt Alabama in this year's college football championship, cost Serena Williams the US Open in 2015, even got the Kentucky Wildcats eliminated in 2013, caused the Golden State Warriors' 2016 collapse in the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, to name a few. There are probably more examples of the 'Drake Curse' and people are just hoping it doesn't affect fictional characters as such. While accepting his Billboard Music Award for Male Artist Of The Year last night, he gave a shoutout to Arya Stark and appreciated all the 'work she put in'. Everyone one the internet is praising Arya for being a badass, especially in the latest 'Game Of Thrones' episode, but there's a difference in everyone and Drake, as we discussed earlier. People are now worried about Arya and we all know who will be blamed now if she dies in the upcoming episodes. Well, Drake here's hoping this is the Drake Curse exception otherwise you'll have the GOT fandom - which is basically every person ever - blaming you. Oh no, Drake just cursed Arya. https://t.co/NPuvuex5eZ — Sean, from the internet (@theshow55) May 2, 2019 Yep. Drake's curse better not apply to fictional characters! Arya Hive don't play https://t.co/ykr8V5opYx — Alyssa (@alyg8or) May 2, 2019 Why, Drake? She gonna die next episode, Mark my words.#Drakecurse #BillboardTNT #GameOfThrones https://t.co/72oBq5tPb8 — Ben Sperling ð (@Ben_Sperls) May 2, 2019 Smh Cersei in 4 smh https://t.co/UadGUnldbZ — Corey (@corhor13) May 2, 2019 Some people are loving it, tho. When drake said “shout out to arya stark for putting in that work last week” I felt that ð — k. (@OfficiallKelsey) May 2, 2019 Not exactly. Turned the BBMAs right as Drake spoiled last week Game of Thrones episode..... #BBMAs #GOT pic.twitter.com/UKtVf6uwNd — Brittany Nanosky (@BWhip324) May 2, 2019 Yes, totally agree. Publicly jumping on Team Arya after she already won the battle is extremely in Drake's bandwagon fan wheelhouse https://t.co/xRj7LM2NRD — Becky Hammer (@beckyhammer) May 2, 2019 It's cool as long as you don't know about the curse. drake literally just said "shout out to arya stark for putting in that work last week" in his acceptance speech and i've honestly never seen the billboard music awards before but it is now my favorite one — Jamie (@Jmw3iss) May 2, 2019 There will be, I can guarantee it right now. I just have this strong feeling that Drake's next hit is going to have some Game of Thrones reference lyric about Arya Stark.. it's something he would do — sad naruto flute (@FaithRies) May 2, 2019
  12. No one knows what will happen to Facebook in the next fifty years. But what we do know is that if Facebook manages to stay in business till 2069, then it'll have profiles of more dead people than that of living. According to academics from the University of Oxford, the number of dead people on Facebook could outnumber the living on the social network. It looks like the number of dead users on Facebook is growing at an unstoppable rate. © Reuters Back in 2012, Facebook had 30 million accounts of dead people. But now, the platform has over two billion users and an estimated 8,000 users die every single day. Based on that, it's predicted that the number of dead users could reach at least 1.4 billion or potentially as high as 4.9 billion by the end of the century. And if Facebook's growth rate keeps going down at the current rate, then it'll literally become a digital graveyard at one point with just the 'memorial' profiles of dead people. Seriously, it's damn scary. And yes, in case you didn't know, the platform will keep your account alive in a digital form once you die.

  13. Apple has already launched an updated version of AirPods, however, new reports suggest that another version is all set to launch later this year. The report also suggests some upgrades that have been expected for a while. © MensXP The next-generation of AirPods are said to have active noise cancellation and may launch before the end of this year. The minor update on the new AirPods comes with a new H1 Chip that lets users launch Siri by simply saying 'Hey Siri'. We can be sure that the next-gen AirPods are expected to come with a similar chip. According to the report by Digitimes, sources in supply chain say that the new AirPods will offer a better audio experience for customers who don't mind paying a premium. The new AirPods are not said to replace the current generation of wireless earbuds but may just be another offering in Apple's audio portfolio. © Unsplash If the rumours are true, the new noise-cancelling AirPods will be more expensive than the current models. Active Noise Cancellation feature generally adds to the cost and rivals like the Sony WF-1000X is also priced higher. This is not the first time we've heard about noise-cancelling AirPods as rumours have been floating around for a while. Previous rumours have suggested that the new AirPods will come with heart rate and body temperature tracking along with other health tracking features. Other rumours suggest that the new AirPods will also come in a black variant which we really want to come true. Needless to say, these rumours cannot be verified until the new AirPods are officially launched by Apple. Having said that, the rumours about noise-cancelling AirPods have been consistent with previous reports. Source: Digitime
  14. Okay, in case you're waiting to savour today's insane episode of 'Game of Thrones' later in the evening, then you have been warned, because just like the night is full of darkness and terror, this one has a few major spoilers for you. For the rest of us who are still shook, here's what the next episode might bring. So, the Battle of Winterfell lasted long enough for a few people to die but it was crazy towards the end when Arya Stark struck down the mighty Night King. Now, the whole 'he just died in a jiffy' has left everyone with a bit of indigestion thinking how easy that was, if not quick. But we forget that this is 'GOT' and things can happen rather quickly and with only 3 more episodes to go, there are so many plots that need attention. With the battle now being won, it looks like Cersei and Khaleesi are ready for a face-off. So many people have scores to settle with Cersei, who conveniently decided to stay out of the war and now, Khaleesi only wants more bloodshed. © HBO Now, here's what I feel we can expect from the next 'Game Of Thrones' episode with the Night King resting in an ice cube somewhere. There will be another gory battle between the living. There has to a 'Cleganebowl' where we fear the Hound might die. The Starks and the dragon queen might have a slight tiff between them which could be tricky for a certain Tyrion Lannister and, of course, there is the anticipated madness that might grip our dear Dany given the threat to her throne in the form of lover Jon Snow and no Jorah to calm her nerves down. With so much left to witness, the action is only getting crazier.
  15. The third episode in the final season of 'Game Of Thrones' is coming in less than 48 hours and while we gear up for the insane Battle of Winterfell to begin, let's just have a quick look at what all are we expecting to witness: 1. A lot of deaths, obviously. The mental preparation to see some of our favourites going down will be tough but catharsis is a rule for all major plot lines, and hence on the radar for this week are the Brienne of Tarth, Ser Jorah, Greyworm, Gendry and well, Theon. © HBO 2. A tiny scene from the promo showed us Jon Snow shouting the "Night King is coming" followed by a hysterical Arya Stark running from the crypts. Now, you sure as hell are aware of the theory that the crypts might not be the safest place since the dead Starks are kind of buried there. So prepare for some spook maybe? 3. Now, the teaser showed nothing about where the mighty Night King maybe, so this episode will (hopefully) answer that if not lay out his evil plans for us. There's a very interesting theory that this battle is a façade and probably the King is flying down South to madam Cersei to conquer hell himself. That will be crazy, if true. 4. The moment when Khaleesi says "the dead are here" could either mean the creepy crypt theory coming to life (pun intended) or the White Walkers breaking down the walls of Winterfell. 5. This episode may or may not show us how exactly Bran will use himself as bait to lure out the Night King. The boy is loved and hated in equal measures for his love of sarcasm and dropping one-liners but him mostly just keeping secrets to himself! © HBO This Monday morning, prepare for no blues but only gory red and also for your mind to be blown away.
  16. Can you believe that there are just a handful of episodes left before 'Game Of Thrones' ends? While I'm sure tonnes of surprises await us before it all goes down, key players like Cersei and her (elephant-less) army, and the shady Iron Islands will definitely be safe next episode which means they get time to plan big surprises. Monday's episode was the last feel-good episode we needed to be ready with before a storm, an impending doom. We're ready now. The Battle Of Winterfell is going to be a long episode, with the longest recording time, this episode is definitely going to see some of the gory deaths that we were promised this season and it's going to be of characters that we adore. So here's our guess list--- all the people who could possibly die in the next episode. Podrick Payne © HBO While The Jenny's Song that he sung last episode contributed a lot to the storyline but in the major scheme of things, it looks like he's not going to matter a lot going forward. He's a minor member of a minor noble house (one subservient to the Lannisters, at that), and if he analyses his character through the seasons, his main function has been to give a pep talk to more important characters which more likely suggests that he'll be gone soon enough. Jorah Mormont © HBO Jorah has always served Danaerys and for obvious reasons was a little taken aback when she made Tyrion the Hand of the Queen. However, in the last episode, he did a little selfless act by convincing Dany that Tyrion despite his rookie mistakes is still a good asset to have. This rids him of any possible twist that he could be a part of. Receiving Sam's house's prized possession: a Valyrian steel sword, Jorah's imminent death in the next episode will only be poetic. Eddison Tollett © HBO Last seen on Monday joining Jon and Samwell to reflect on how they've all made it so far together was an emotional scene. Unfortunately, it looks like Eddison may be the one to fall this week. Beric Dondarrion © HBO Carrying around a rad fire sword doesn't guarantee safety on 'Game Of Thrones'. While it may play a major role in the big battle of fire and ice but the character who possesses it, not so much. Maybe he's here to deliver it to someone. And now, here's a list of people whose fate remains dicey: Gendry © HBO This show, in the first episode, suggested that one of Ned's daughters will wind up with one of Robert's sons. But then again, everything is frivolous, especially lives on this show. Or seeing Gendry die could give a purpose to Arya to assassinate one of the key White Walkers. Or, he could survive and there might be a possible happy ending. Who knows? Ser Davos © HBO He spent the last episode telling everyone how he's terrible at battle but has managed to survive this long, which either means he's going to keep on surviving…or possibly signal that he's definitely not built to survive this one. Brienne of Tarth © HBO The internet is divided over Brienne's imminent death. Being knighted and then dying a death of honour in the battlefield looks like a sad but fitting end for her. But she is in the middle of Westeros' love triangle. That storyline can't just be abandoned, right? Tormund Giantsbane © HBO The internet also thinks that Tormund might end up sacrificing himself to save Brienne which could be plausible. But, Tormund is the only major Wildling left (it's unclear how many others are still around). After the war, the Wildlings will need some representation, or will that not matter anymore? Jaime Lannister © HBO There are tonnes of hints on the show that suggest that the ultimate fate of the house of Lannister is to go completely extinct. But he is also currently separated from the character most important to his storyline. Cersei and Jamie's fates have to be intertwined, right? Theon Greyjoy © HBO He is probably destined to die to excuse his sins, but he has to at least survive to the point where the Iron Islands come back into the picture. Grey Worm © HBO Making post-war plans with Missandei has everyone thinking that Greyworm will definitely die and possibly will be witnessed by Missandei herself. But he might live to die in the later episodes. Characters who're definitely going to live: The major characters... But we can't be too sure, can we?
  17. Varun Dhawan is one of few stars in the industry, who had the fortune to taste success quite early in life. But, if you think that most of that has got to do with his star kid status, think again. Over time, Varun has seriously strengthened his game and improved his acting skills with every role that he has taken up. We have seen him as the vengeful Raghu in 'Badlapur' and also as a carefree brat in 'Judwaa 2'. He has done exceptionally well in portraying both casual and intense roles. Name any genre and he has done it all, romance, drama or comedy, you can check on all the boxes. Varun may have the tag of being David Dhawan's son, but he has climbed the ladder of success on his own and that's what his father also believes as well. On April 24, Varun Dhawan celebrated his 32nd birthday and if you are his hardcore fan, then you'll be interested to know what he did on his special day. MensXP got in touch with David Dhawan to know about Varun's journey through a father's eyes. So, we started by asking how Varun celebrated his birthday. Sr Dhawan told us, "For his birthday, he has gone on a holiday. He was there and we were on the phone and Facebook with him. We cut a cake here and my granddaughter Nyra, who is not even one, joined us. We managed to celebrate his birthday." © Viral Bhayani For a father, seeing his son grow in his career is one of the most amazing feelings and just a few words can't sum it up. But, we did make it a point to know, how as a father, he sees Varun's journey as an actor from 'Student Of The Year' till now. As a proud father, he told us that he credits Varun for all the success despite having a brand value of a Dhawan. "You know, as a father, I can say that he has gone up and up. I give all the credit to him for his success. He has given hits with me as well. I sent him for studies in the UK and when he came back, I didn't exactly know about his plans. He came back and joined Karan Johar as an Assistant Director for 'My Name Is Khan'. While working there, Karan told that Varun is going to act in my film. Karan found him an acting material. He has found his way himself. I, being a father, did a second film with him because I thought that's the right time. He is totally very independent and I have seen him improving as an actor. I am very proud of it," David said. © Viral Bhayani Sr Dhawan takes immense pleasure in the fact that his son is a man with family values. For all those who know Varun or have met him would know how grounded he is as a human being, which speaks enough of the values he has been brought up with. David added, "He is a very homely guy or call him a family oriented person. We all live together. I have two sons and it's an amazing feeling" In an age where people want to stay as far as they can from their families, we have the Dhawan family that's all united and growing stronger with each passing day. Sr Dhawan and Jr Dhawan will now be pairing up for one more venture together and that would be the remake of the cult comedy film, 'Coolie No 1'. Confirming the same, the popular director told us, "He is my son and I am going to work with him. Sara Ali Khan is also a part of the film. I am going to start the shooting soon, sometime in August." © Viral Bhayani Further, into the conversation, we asked David Dhawan if Varun ever comes to him for his suggestions or tips on the professional front. Well, the answer is a big YES. "He does come to me for his scripts or when he does a song, he makes me hear it. We both are very much in touch when it comes to working and we are like professionals. He knows my experience and he takes what he wants from it. Keeping the father-son bond aside, there is a great rapport between the two of us as a director and an actor," said Mr Dhawan. For a father, everything a son does holds immense value but then there are some projects that are always more appreciated. When we asked David Dhawan - which of Varun's films are his favourite, he said, "I have seen all his films. In 'Badlapur', he acted really well and it was a very different film. I loved him in 'Badrinath' too. Commercially, he was really good in 'Judwaa 2'. His comic timing is great but I find him much better in emotional scenes." © Viral Bhayani Before we finally said goodbye to Sr Dhawan, we addressed the elephant in the room. Yes, we asked the GOLDEN question about Varun's possible wedding with girlfriend Natasha Dalal. Varun and Natasha have finally accepted their relationship and rumours of their wedding have been doing the rounds for a while now. Answering our query, Sr Dhawan said, "His marriage will happen next year maybe. I am very happy with their relationship. What more does a father need?" We are waiting for the official announcement. What about you?
  18. The reactions to the first two episodes of the epic final season of 'Game Of Thrones' have been quite mixed in terms of some predictable moments and some 'OMG' moments. Now the preview of the next episode in line shows a glimpse of what will be a crazy 1 hour 22 minute ride. After Khaleesi finding out that Jon Snow is actually her nephew, what do you think will be the consequences of this new found information for her? © HBO Now it's that vs the dead queuing up to kill and take whatever is theirs (at least according to the Night King). The preview of the next episode shows a glimpse of the beginning of the war in the North. The battle took insane efforts to be shot in real life and the cast and crew have been very vocal about this emotionally drenching experience. That moment when you hear the fear in Jon Snow's voice when he exclaims that 'the Night King is coming', we wonder if he spots him flying the now-dead dragon and processing the sight. The insanity is driving us crazy, to be honest.
  19. Thanks to 'Game Of Thrones', Fantasy TV shows have proven to be a massive success. Now that the show has seen massive success, we've seen other studios also invest in future fantasy tv shows that will hit their respective distribution platforms. It will be a sad moment when 'Game Of Thrones' ends; it will be the end of a franchise that has been the most successful TV show in history. Even though HBO is working on a prequel series of GOT, it still won't be able to garner as much excitement as the current season. © New Line Cinema Having said that, we do have a bunch of new fantasy TV series that are in the works as we speak. One of them being a Lord Of The Rings (LOTR) TV series that will release on Amazon Prime. It's said to take place in the mid to late second age when the ring of power is first forged. It is the period when we see Sauron rise to power and may end where Peter Jackson movies start off. 'The Lord Of The Rings' by J.R.R Tolkien is often considered to be the father of modern epic fantasy books and it will be exciting to see Sauron's origins on our TV screens. The movie adaptations by Peter Jackson were a huge success and ushered in an era where fantasy movies and TV shows became a part of pop culture. The Amazon LOTR tv series is said to begin shooting in August and way get to see the first season on Amazon Prime in early 2020. © CD Projekt Red The second fantasy TV series we're most excited about is Netflix's 'The Witcher' adaptation. The show will be a drama series based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski's 'The Witcher', a collection of eight novels. Henry Cavill will play the iconic character 'Geralt of Rivia' while Freya Allan will play the character of Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, and Anna Shaffer as Triss Marigold. © Netflix The novels have already been adapted into a series of video games by CD Projekt Red and have now garnered a cult-like following for the franchise. Andrzej Sapkowski has obviously created a very rich and memorable world that has dark undertones, drama and action. If the upcoming TV series is anything like the game, expect ***, battles, betrayal, prophecies, romance and magic as the primary theme of the series similar to GOT. 'The Witcher' TV series is expected to release later this year and we couldn't be more excited for this show. It's a great time to be a fantasy fan as our favourite franchises are being brought to life in the form of TV series or movies. Being a fantasy series, we can't expect any of the shows to be completely faithful; however, it's still exciting to see these two amazing worlds brought back to life.
  20. Four years after its original announcement, Aston Martin's first all-electric car is finally here. The company's Rapide sedan called the “Rapide E” made its debut at the Shangai Auto Show yesterday. Aston Martin didn't announce a price for the car, but it said only 155 Rapide E cars will ever be made. However, do you know what are we most excited about? To see Agent 007 drive the new all-electric car in the next Bond movie. For those of you who don't know, Aston Martin cars and James Bond movies have a huge history. Aston Martin's relationship with the 007 franchise began in 1964 when Sean Connery drove a DB5 sports car in Goldfinger. Well, if the reports are something to go by, the upcoming 25th James Bond (https://www.mensxp.com/special-features/james-bond-lifestyle/7551-10-best-james-bond-outfits.html) movie will see our 007 agent drive the new Rapide E. Of course, there's a lot of swift action sequences in the movie, and we think it's about time to put our agent in a zero-emission vehicle. © Aston Martin The new Rapide E is a powerful machine. It's powered by an 800-volt, 65kWh battery, which Aston Martin says will be able to travel over 200 miles on a single charge. The car has a twin motor fitted on the rear axle, which can generate 450kW and can get the car up to a top speed of 155 miles per hour. Also, the new Aston Martin Rapide E can go from 0 to 60 miles in under four seconds. The car is packed with a lot of other gizmos like a 10-inch digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, an 8-inch display mounted atop the centre of the dashboard, and more. The new Rapide E was said to hit the road in 2018, but there's no official word on its availability yet.
  21. It's been fours years since Rockstar Games confirmed that Grand Theft Auto 6 is coming. There's been a ton of rumours since the studio confirmed that 'it's got some ideas for GTA VI'. So when is this releasing exactly? Well, if an anonymous European developer is to be believed, then the next installment in the Grand Theft Auto series is coming next year during the holiday season. © Rockstar Games That being said, it looks like the next generation PS5 players will be first ones to get their hands on the game when it arrives next year. Yes, Sony is apparently handing out a mountain of cash to GTA VI producer Take-Two Interactive to secure a one month exclusive period for the game on PS5. This means, the next-generation Xbox players won't be able to play it until a month later. There's no word on the PC version of the game, but we don't expect the game to arrive on PC at launch anyway. This, by the way, isn't the first time we're hearing about GTA VI being exclusive to the next generation PlayStation console. But the real question is whether Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive would be willing to risk the backlash from Xbox gamers just for some extra cash. It's a Grand Theft Auto title we're talking about here after all. GTA V made more money than any other movie, book or game in the history. © Rockstar Games The developer also noted that this next installment of the game will take place in Miami and New York City. Anyway, there's no concrete way to confirm this report, so we suggest you take all this info with a grain of salt. We'll hopefully hear more about the game soon from Rockstar Games.
  22. The copy contains spoilers. Proceed with caution. In case you missed it, 'Game of Thrones' Season 8, Episode 1 dropped today at 6.30 am. The episode saw the long-awaited reunion of Jon and Arya and the revelation of Jon's true lineage, which we were waiting for since the first season. But here's what we learnt from the premiere of Season 8: long drawn conflicts and mysteries that had troubled us since the beginning are going to unravel and fast. Things are escalating at Winterfell. Jon finally knows about his parents and it matters now what he does with this information which can possibly change the entire vision that Dany has for her Empire. So after watching the first episode, here's what is going to happen next: The trailer's opening shot has Daenerys confronting Jaime, who's just arrived in Winterfell. "When I was a child, my brother would tell me a bedtime story about the man who murdered our father," Dany says in a threatening tone. "And all the things we would do to that man." These two have never seen eye to eye. We know from Dany's past interaction with men that she does not like that it never ends well for them. 1. In the teaser, we've also seen Jamie's glove just lying around, so is it going to be the end of Jamie? But what about Cersei's prophecy then? Will Tyrion kill her then or it won't hold true considering another baby is on the way. 2. There's a sneaky split-second shot of Dany approaching Jon in the crypts of Winterfell—is he about to tell Dany his truth? © HBO 3. Then, we have Jon asking Tormund, "How long do we have?" Tormund responds: "Before the sun comes up tomorrow." And oh boy, does Jon look panicked: © HBO 4. And then we have another couple we've been rooting for, Missandei and Grey Worm kissing: © HBO 5. It looks like the Battle of Winterfell will most likely take place in episode 3 of Season 8 which also happens to be the longest episode of the season with a total running time of one hour 22 minutes. Expect gory deaths is all we can say right now.5 Revelations From 'GOT' Season 8 Episode 2 Promo That We Can't Wait To Watch Next Week
  23. OnePlus 7 is right around the corner and new details keep popping up on the internet before its eventual launch sometime next month. In order to compete, OnePlus has already added some unique features according to previous leaks but an unexpected feature just got discovered. A new leak of a prototype shows that the OnePlus 7 will use the Pro moniker and will also be borrowing features we've seen on previous Samsung smartphones. © Weibo The leak also confirmed a few features on the upcoming OnePlus 7 Pro as it will be using a curved edge screen, seen before on Samsung flagship smartphones. The smartphone is said to have a notch-less display which could only mean that it will have a pop-up selfie camera. The OnePlus 7 Pro is said to have a 6.67-inch Super Optic Display; a made-up marketing term for the curved edge display. The smartphone is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and will also have an X50 modem for 5G connectivity. © Twitter The OnePlus 7 Pro is also expected to have 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage if this leak turns out to be true. Previous reports have suggested that the smartphone will have a triple camera setup at the back and a sliding or pop-up selfie camera. It is also possible that the selfie camera may be embedded into the bezels. © Twitter A regular OnePlus 7 without the X50 model will also be offered with different configurations for customers who just want a traditional OnePlus device. We could expect the 5G version of the smartphone to be priced considerably more than the regular OnePlus 7 smartphones. We will know more about the OP7 closer to the launch. Source: TechRadar
  24. Microsoft, in case you don't know, is working on developing the highly anticipated 'Halo Infinite' title. The game won't be out until the end of 2019, but we've learnt something very exciting about the development. According to reports, the budget set by Microsoft and 343 Industries for 'Halo Infinite', is reportedly more than a whopping $500 million. Yup, it looks like Microsoft handed over a blank cheque to 343 Industries for the title, making it the most expensive video game project ever. © 343industries The report comes from a German outlet called Xbox Dynasty , which says that Halo Infinite's development costs currently dwarfs even the likes of 'Red Dead Redemption 2' and 'Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2', which are known to be some expensive titles. With that budget, Halo Infinite will cost more than even Marvel's upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame' movie, with an estimated budget between $300 - $400 million. Even the Infinity War was estimated to have a similar budget. It is, however, worth pointing out that this is just a rumour and Xbox Dynasty didn't provide proof to back up its claim. So, it's best if you take the report with a pinch of salt. That being said, Microsoft investing significantly into the development of Halo Infinite makes sense. Microsoft is betting big on this title for the future of gaming and its consoles. So, it's not really a surprise that they're going all in to exceed all expectations.
  25. It has been a couple of years since Apple has launched a 'small' iPhone. The last small and compact phone from the company was the iPhone SE that came out all the way back in 2016. Well, if the new report is something to go by, then it looks like Apple might finally launch a compact iPhone next year. According to DigiTimes, Apple is readying new iPhones for 2020 with display sizes - 5.43-inch, 6.06-inch, and 6.67-inch. Looks like the company will be sourcing the displays from Samsung or LG. The current lineup, in case you're wondering, has display sizes of 5.8-inch (iPhone XS), 6.1-inch (iPhone XR), and 6.5-inch (iPhone XS Max). So, if it turns out to be true, Apple will reduce the size of the smallest model while increasing the size of the biggest model. © Unsplash We're not entirely sure as to what Apple is planning to call these new iPhones, though. But if we were to guess, then the smallest iPhone would be called iPhone SE2, which has been passing the rumour mill for quite some time now. But again, that raises questions about the names of other iPhones, so your guess is as good as ours, really.
