  1. The much awaited trailer of 'Kedarnath' starring Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput is now out. The movie has been directed by Abhishek Kapoor and marks the debut of Sara Ali Khan. The story line is quite basic. Hindu girl falls in love with a Muslim man and all hell breaks loose for the lovebirds because inter-faith marriages are still not considered 'normal' in larger chunks of our society, especially in small towns. As the name of the movie suggests, the entire onus is on the holy place of Kedarnath and the 2013 Uttarakhand flood tragedy is the backdrop of this love story. © Guy In The Sky Pictures The first song 'Namo Namo' was released on Dhanteras and is already a hit with the audience. Sara Ali Khan knows her craft and with her fabulous performance in her debut movie, her confidence is winning our vote. This trailer is proof enough that she is surely sweeping the 'best debutante' award next year. Nepotism maybe the norm in this industry, but I guess Sara Ali Khan will prove that talent and good acting is indeed a gift she has inherited with the name. © Guy In The Sky Pictures Sushant has not got a lot of screen space in the trailer, which is okay, because he is already an established talented name in the industry. The movie will hit the screens on 7th December, 2018.
  2. Right from the first episode, the sixth season of Karan Johar's highly controversial and masaledaar show, 'Koffee With Karan' has managed to live up to all the hype and drama surrounding the show. Looks like tonight's episode featuring Katrina Kaif and Varun Dhawan isn't going to be any different either. While most of you are still busy buying tickets of 'Thugs of Hindostan', Katrina is now gearing up for the release of 'Zero' and will soon be seen in 'ABCD 3' opposite Varun Dhawan. Star World For those who don't know, Varun is also the founding member of 'I Hate Katrina' club. So, when you bring B-Town's hottest actress and her anti-fan club leader under one roof, shots are expected to be fired. And we've got our hands on some exclusive highlights from tonight's episode, which only prove the same. The 'I Hate Katrina' Club Was Actually For Salman Khan For the longest time, Katrina and everyone who knows about this group's existence thought that it was made to spite Katrina for not giving them attention. But, the truth is, it was actually made to get Salman Khan's attention, which got divided when he was shooting with Katrina for 'Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya'. Salman used to chill with Arjun and Varun and make them practice their workouts, but due to Katrina they didn't get enough attention. .@Varun_dvn spills the beans on why he started 'Hate Katrina' club and it's a plot twist! #KoffeeWithKaran #KoffeeWithKatrina #KoffeeWithVarun pic.twitter.com/5ExkjObgAg — Star World (@StarWorldIndia) November 4, 2018 Katrina Feels She & Vicky Kaushal Might Look Good Together Before you guys raise your eyebrows, we're talking about them looking good on-screen. Katrina reveals on the show that she would like to work with Vicky Kaushal, since she has a feeling that they might look good together in movies. Vicky Kaushal is truly a brilliant actor, who has proved his mettle with movies like 'Raazi', 'Sanju' and 'Manmarziyaan'. So, we can't wait for the two to come together in a movie. Star World Varun Talks About His Tinder Profile Talking about love, we all know that Varun is actually in a happy space right now with Natasha, and his fans too love him for being an amazing boyfriend. So what better opportunity can there be that this show to ask him about his Tinder profile, if there was any. So when asked about Varun's Tinder bio, he said 'Sasta and Tikau'. Well, we don't know if Varun is ever coming on Tinder, but if that happens we know who's getting the most number of right swipes. Love Guru Katrina Kaif Gives Some Valuable Advice “When neither of you need each other, when there's no great dependency on the other person. There's just admiration, there's respect, there's companionship and there's a space of ease between you,” says Katrina Kaif as she speaks about being single and how it has made her really comfortable with 'who she is'. View this post on Instagram The Diwali dazzle continues on the Koffee couch with the dashing duo of @katrinakaif & @varundvn! #KoffeeWithKaran #KoffeeWithVarun #KoffeeWithKatrina A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Nov 8, 2018 at 2:16am PST Varun's Mother Reveals Varun's Girlfriends Helped Him In Class Work At School In this episode, Varun's parents will share stories from Varun's school days. She reveals that whenever she checked Varun's notebooks, she will see different handwriting and when she went to Varun's school to confront his friends, they said they felt sorry for him. Well, now we know Varun was quite popular even in school. Star World Be it Alia or Deepika talking about their respective partners, Akshay and Ranveer bringing the whole house down with their unabashed and unapologetic humour and behaviour, or Aamir Khan and Malaika Arora collectively roasting Karan Johar for his choice of clothes; every episode has given the audience something spicy and interesting to take back home. And it seems, this episode too will be as gossipy as the previous one. 'Koffee with Karan 6' airs every Sunday at 9 pm on Star World!
  3. Just weeks after officially going public with her relationship with model Rohman Shawl on social media, latest reports suggest that Sushmita Sen and beau are ready to take their relationship to the next level just months after they started dating. Wedding bells are on the cards for Bollywood's latest couple, who are allegedly going to be united in holy matrimony sometime next year according to a DNA report. It was earlier reported that the duo met at a fashion show a couple of months ago, and instantly hit it off. The rest, as we all know, is history. © YouTube However, given the latest developments, a source close to the couple was reported by DNA as saying, “they have even discussed the idea of marriage and if things go as planned, they will take their marital vows next year”. Of late, Rohman has been making frequent appearances on Sushmita's Instagram feed, as well as offline, at Shilpa Shetty's Diwali party. The couple seem very much in-love and as per the DNA reports, Rohman has already proposed to his lady love, which was accepted by Sushmita! © Instagram "Rohman has already proposed to Sushmita and she has agreed, which is why she decided to go public with the relationship. They are currently figuring out when would be a good time to tie the knot, but as of now, the couple is looking at a date around winter 2019," the source had said. Rohman, 27, seems to get along really well with Sushmita's young daughters Renee and Alisah too. Speaking to DNA the source further added that, "apparently, both Renee and Alisah are fond of him. The mother of two is happy that her daughters, too, have approved of her choice". View this post on Instagram #duggadugga â¤ï¸ A post shared by Sushmita Sen (@sushmitasen47) on Nov 6, 2018 at 12:04pm PST Things seem to be looking up for Sushmita on the personal front, and we wish her the very best for the future.
  4. AirPods have been a huge success for Apple and it seems like the company is bringing a brand new version of the wireless earphones soon. According to trademark filings and reports, the new AirPods will have more advanced features than the current generation. The filings were made from Hong Kong and Europe a few days ago, where new details about the next AirPods were leaked. © MensXP The filings were spotted by Patently Apple and the next version of AirPods are expected to have health-related features. The new features are expected to track and monitor heart rate via the biometric sensors inbuilt into the wireless earphones. The filing detailed the featured it may cover i.e.: “namely, health, fitness, exercise, and wellness sensors, monitors, speakers and displays for measuring, displaying, tracking, reporting, monitoring, storing, and transmitting biometric data, heart rate, body movement, and calories burned; hearing aids; medical apparatus and instruments; apparatus for use in medical analysis; testing apparatus for medical purposes; pulse meters; thermometers for medical purposes; spirometers [medical apparatus]; dental apparatus; heart rate monitoring apparatus; earplugs [ear protection devices]; feeding bottles; non-chemical contraceptives; hair prostheses; plaster bandages for orthopaedic purposes; suture materials.” © MensXP The new filing also mentions that there will be a mechanism to transmit biometric data such as heart rate, body movement and calories burned. According to the report, the AirPods will work closely with other Apple products such as the Apple Watch. We aren't entirely sure when Apple will launch the new AirPods, however, these filings make it extremely exciting thanks to the new features. There are other reports that suggest AirPods may also support noise-cancelling features which is a highly requested feature by AirPods users. Source: Patently Apple
  5. We're going to go ahead and declare that we're tired of kurta pyjamas and sherwanis. There, we said it. Before you revolt, hear us out. Actually, just take a look at your wardrobe and introspect. How long can you keep on repeating that same old outfit with the same old silhouette, just by changing the colours here and there? And sometimes not even that? Diwali deserves to be celebrated to your heart's content, so why should men's fashion take a backseat - while the women in our lives manage to nail new, innovative, pretty outfits every year? We are done with the apathy, and have decided to do something about it this year. We have fashioned 7 incredible ways of layering that will completely transform the way you dress on Diwali henceforth, or any festival whatsoever. Take a look. 1. A delightful double layered ensemble with a pastel base. © MensXP This simple, yet elegant ensemble from Philocaly has everything the modern man looks forward to - class, sophistication, and an element of subtlety that is often missing in festival outfits. The fact that a pair of well-fitted white trousers is included instead of any other form of lowers, adds to the 'chill' factor. © MensXP Label: Philocaly (Ig: philocaly_menswear) Model: Aaron Kaul 2. An elegant, earthy duo-tone ensemble. © MensXP There is something about embracing fabrics that are earthy and organic. Add to that the rustic touch of a layered silhouette that is extremely edgy, yet comforting, and you get an outfit that will not only turn heads, but will start a conversation. This outfit consisting of a handwoven Khadi jacket, a boxy shirt, and Khadi Dhoti pants does exactly that. © MensXP Label: Urvashi Kaur (Ig: urvashikaur) Model: Llavi Tyagi 3. A smart jacket on kurta pyjama aesthetic. © MensXP When you add a jacket on a basic kurta pyjama, the whole game changes. In this case, the same fabric has been used to construct a structured Nehru jacket with pintuckeds that forms the topmost layer of the ensemble. Talking about functional outfits that don't stray far in terms of experimental silhouettes, this one takes the cake. © MensXP Label: Amaare Couture (Ig: amaarecouture) Model: Siddhant Roop Rai 4. An edgy, relaxed, anti-fit layered ensemble. © MensXP An outfit that's not seamlessly fitted is not everyone's cup of tea, but if you can carry it off, the game is yours. Just look at this runway-ready combination of the boxy paneled top with crossover pants, along with the unabashed brave layering with the sheer anti-fit jacket. © MensXP Label: Urvashi Kaur (Ig: urvashikaur) Model: TJ 5. A bravely layered outfit with panels and patchwork. © MensXP If you want to sport something that will immediately make you the center of attention, layer away like you mean it. This paneled and patchworked ensemble does just that, along with a super relaxed pair of lounge pants that will make sure those dance moves don't suffer. © MensXP Label: Urvashi Kaur (Ig: urvashikaur) Model: Charlie Frost 6. A kurta-pyjama-waistcoat ensemble. © MensXP If you want to stick to the tried and tested aesthetic of adding an waistcoat to a well-fitted kurta pyjama, go right ahead! Just make sure that the fit is perfect, and the waistcoat is not a run-of-the-mill piece. This one fits the bill perfectly, with an unusual construction and smart buttoned panels. © MensXP Label: Philocaly (Ig: phlilocaly_menswear) Model: TJ 7. A layered ensemble with a statement tunic. © MensXP Tunics are great. While they can be a bit confusing in terms of where exactly they fit in, one can definitely use them to layer outfits like this one here. This relaxed boxy tunic in organic cotton paired with the paneled linen noil shirt and lounge pants is absolutely fearless, when it comes to making a statement with your outfit. © MensXP Label: Urvashi Kaur (Ig: urvashikaur) Model: Charlie Frost Credits: Photographer: Anubhav Sood (Ig: anubhav_sood) Styling: Devanshi Tuli (Ig: devanshi.15) Makeup Artist: Srishti Anand (Ig: srishtianandmakeup)
  6. The final season of 'Game Of Thrones' might have been pushed further but the plethora of information that keeps coming our way has helped us manage the aching heart. The fate of all characters, the wall and the nightwalkers is something that has kept up biting our nails for too long now. © HBO In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kit Harrington and Emilia Clarke spilled a few beans and divulged some plot details of what is suppose to come up in the final season. The last season ended on a cliff hanger when the Night walkers started descending past the Wall. The opening episode will probably mirror the pilot episode of the show with Khaleesi's army arriving in the North, just like the first season began with King Robert's army marching. A lot of characters will meet who have previously not met. © HBO Everyone has to come together as they are facing a common enemy – the army of the dead and this collective danger will unite enemies and friends alike. Also, Sansa Stark will not be too happy to see that her brother bent the knee for his new lady love. Looks like it's going to get more gory and intense; after all, it is THE finale!
  7. Ever since its advent in 2008, The Indian Premier League (IPL) has established itself as one of the most exciting and lucrative Twenty20 (T20) tournaments in the world. The cash-rich league, over the years, has served as a great platform for the upcoming stars to prove their mettle and rake in big bucks during the high-profile auctions. With the twelfth edition of the IPL raring to begin in March next year, Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh has already revealed the next "Million Dollar Baby" for the upcoming auctions. Impressed by his blistering batting performance, Bhajji has tipped West Indies' Shimron Hetmyer to spark a bidding war amongst the IPL franchises and eventually secure a big-bucks contract. What an inn by #Hetmyer..he is gonna be a next million dollar baby in the @IPL 2019 #INDvsWI 1st ODI — Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) October 21, 2018 Harbhajan's comments came in the wake of Hetmyer's spectacular show with the willow during the first One-Day International (ODI) between India and West Indies in Guwahati. The left-hander looked in ominous form, taking the Indian bowling attack to the cleaners during his blazing 78-ball knock of 106 runs which included six fours and as many sixes. Coming in to bat with his side reeling at 86/3, Hetmyer played a mature innings that was thoroughly decorated with clinical strokes. Carrying the baton for his side, he stitched a 74-run partnership for the fifth wicket with Rovman Powell to stabilise the innings. After Powell's dismissal, the Windies star continued to bat on, stitching another crucial 60-run partnership for the sixth wicket with skipper Jason Holder to ensure his side remained poised for a competitive total. Congratulations to Shimron Hetmyer for making his third century in just 13 ODIs for the Windies! ð¯ He reaches his ton off just 74 balls, brought up in style with a six! ð #INDvWI pic.twitter.com/U57lw4L6TB — ICC (@ICC) October 21, 2018 His fine knock eventually came to an end when Ravindra Jadeja got him out caught at long leg in the 39th over. But, by then, Hetmyer had done his part in setting up a pivotal platform for Windies to finish their innings. And, the fact that he has now slammed three hundreds (each scored with a strike-rate around 135) in 13 ODI innings, surely makes this 21-year-old batsman an exciting prospect. Despite posting a mammoth total of 322 runs, while West Indies couldn't negate the batting geniuses of Virat Kohli (140) and Rohit Sharma (152*) before eventually losing the match by eight wickets, Hetmyer undoubtedly won hearts with his brilliant batting performance - one that instigated Bhajji to tip him as the next 'Million Dollar Baby' in the upcoming IPL season.
  8. “Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life” - Steve Jobs I think it's safe to say that getting a dream job or getting into that dream university is probably something all of us have on our to-do list. But dreaming to get into an institution of your choice and actually getting in are two separate things. It'll require a lot of hard work, patience and a kickass interview round to fetch that. Now we can't really do anything to help you get to the interview stage. but once you get to that interview round, you are pretty much in a make or break situation. On that note, here are five tips you MUST follow in order to ace your next interview and help strike one thing off of your bucket list. 1) Pay Attention To Your Body Language © Flickr Your body language plays a vital role in determining the type of impression you are going to leave on your interviewer. So pay attention to your body language and make sure you don't do something (scratch an itch, play with your hair, yawn) that will end up leaving a negative impression on your interviewer. 2) Dress To Impress © Unsplash While not every workplace setting enforces a dress code, you need to make sure that you are dressed in a proper and adequate manner for your interview, irrespective of the dressing policy of that organisation. There are two reasons for doing this. Firstly, it shows your maturity and sense of responsibility. And secondly, it indicates your seriousness for the job. So make sure you invest in the best formal shirts, formal trousers, formal shoes and ties before you go for your interview. 3) Conduct Proper Research About The Company/University In Question © Unsplash This is perhaps the biggest rookie mistake that an alarmingly large number of people end up making before going for their interviews. It's your duty and responsibility to find out everything you can about the company or university you're planning to interview for. After all, if your interviewer asks you something about the company, and you have no idea how to answer that question, you're going to be in a lot of trouble. 4) Exude Confidence In Whatever You Do And Say © Unsplash Whatever you say, make sure you say it with confidence and conviction. No one likes to see someone be unsure and hesitant about their own answers. So be confident and cool in whatever you say and do. But remember, there is a fine line between being confident and being arrogant, and you really don't want to come across as being in the latter camp. 5) Keep Your Answers Short And To The Point No one likes to hear anyone rambling. While it might be tempting to give the most elaborate and elucidating answers, you need to be careful about not going overboard when your interviewer starts checking her/his watch or starts losing interest. The best way to avoid this is by ensuring that your answers are short but crisp, informative but to the point, and impressive but concise. 6) Being Early Is On Time And Being On Time Is Late © Unsplash Punctuality is often considered to be the most sought after (and essential) attribute that employers look for in prospective employees. And one of the best ways of showing how punctual you can be is during the interview stage itself. Remember, being early is akin to being on time, and being on time is akin to being late. So make sure you reach the place of your interview 10-15 minutes in advance and you'll be off to a great start. And needless to say, being late is absolutely unacceptable and a complete deal-breaker.
  9. It's been 21 years since the classic Winamp media player was released for Windows, and it seems like the audio app will be making a return next year. It will be re-launching in the form of a mobile app that will be able to run all your music, podcasts and radio shows all in one place, according to TechCrunch. Radionomy's CEO Alexandre Saboundjian, the company that bought the application from AOL said: "There will be a completely new version next year, with the legacy of Winamp but a more complete listening experience. You can listen to the MP3s you may have at home, but also to the cloud, to podcasts, to streaming radio stations, to a playlist you perhaps have built.” © YouTube This new version of Winamp will be coming to both iOS and Android platforms while Winamp is already present in the Google Play Store. Having said that, the new version is expected to give a completely different experience and will also be updated on the desktop. Winamp faced tough competition from mobile apps that led to its decline, as most of its user base was on desktop computers. Saboundjian claims that the mobile app will have everything in one place as currently, mobile audio services are currently fractured and inconvenient. © Nullsoft As of now, there are no details as to what services would be a part of the Winamp app. It could work similarly to the Sonos app and provide services from different applications such as Spotify, Apple Music, Google Music Library and others. We can't wait to relive the good old glory days once the application is released and see what services the new application has to offer. For more information, stay tuned to MensXP Technology.

  10. From sharing jokes on the field to coming to each other's aid at media interactions, the world of cricket is not new to bromance between fellow cricketers. When it comes to Indian cricket, the camaraderie between KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya is something that stands out in the current crop of cricketers. A similar chemistry came to the fore recently, when Yuvraj Singh and Zaheer Khan were seen spending quality time along with their better halves on a holiday. Accompanied by their respective wives Hazel Keech and Sagarika Ghatge, Yuvi and Zak have kept the social media buzzing with their regular updates on Instagram from the Maldives. View this post on Instagram #islandlifeð´ #beachbumming ðð²ðâ¤ï¸ð·I A post shared by Sagarika (@sagarikaghatge) on Oct 11, 2018 at 2:48am PDT From photobombing their wives to posing together on the beach, the two former Indian cricketers seem to be having a gala time in the Maldives. The trip was organised by Sagarika in a bid to celebrate her hubby Zaheer's 40th birthday. Later, the likes of Ajit Agarkar and Ashish Nehra, too, joined them with their respective families. But, it's clearly Yuvi and Zak who stood out for their bromance.

  12. The remarkable success of movies like 'Raazi', 'Gold' and 'Sanju', has had Bollywood riding on the wave of biopics and movies based on real life events. Films like 'Uri', 'Manikarnika' and 'Kesari' have only underlined the recent success of this trend further. © junglee pictures The latest addition to this list is director Meghna Gulzar's upcoming venture on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, featuring superstar Deepika Padukone. After giving us a heart-warming watch in 'Raazi', Gulzar is now set to make a biopic on acid attack survivor and activist, Laxmi, who was attacked at the age of 15, and has since been working for the welfare of acid attack survivors. © wikimedia Reportedly, Deepika Padukone will not only play the lead role, but will also wear the slip into the producer's shoes for the movie. Deepika told Mumbai Mirror, "When I heard this story, I was deeply moved as it's not just one of violence but of strength and courage, hope and victory. It made such an impact on me, that personally and creatively, I needed to go beyond and so the decision to turn producer." © instagram Gulzar, who's also made films like 'Talwar,'' said "Using Laxmi's story as a lens, we are attempting to explore these aspects and the consequences of acid-related violence in our society. This is what makes this must-told story relevant. Awareness is the first step towards change." On casting the 'Padmavat' actress, she said "I was instinctively convinced that Deepika would do justice to the character and the story. Also, her physicality matched with what I'd imagined for Laxmi's character. I'm grateful and encouraged that she was so spontaneous in her decision to do the film." © wikimedia Laxmi was recently in news for her financial struggles in the recent past. Upon learning of her misfortunes, Akshay Kumar even transferred Rs 5 lakh into her account so that she can find her feet. Laxmi's story is one of the most inspiring accounts of courage and bravery. We look forward to Deepika doing justice to it on the big screen.
  13. As exhilarating, adventurous, exciting and thrilling a trek can be, it could also be incredibly unsafe, dangerous and prone to accidents - especially if you don't do your research. After all, going for a trek isn't the same as running your run-of-the-mill marathon. So before you go for your next trek, here are five important tips you should keep in mind to ensure you have a safe and great time that will come without medical bills. 1) Get The Right Pair Of Trekking Shoes © Unsplash Imagine going for a swim but not carrying the proper swimming costume, or going for a badminton match without a premium badminton racket, or even going for a soccer game without a pair of studs? Needless to say, things won't go as well as you'd want them to. Well, the same is true when it comes to going for a trek without the right pair of trekking shoes. After all, owning the right trekking shoes will make sure you don't accidentally injure yourself or end up putting on a pair of shoes that won't be durable or comfortable. 2) Carry Supplies To Deal With Emergencies © Unsplash If you don't properly prepare for one, a trek can often times end up being an incredibly dangerous (and unsafe!) activity to indulge in. As such, carrying the proper supplies to deal with any potential emergencies becomes absolutely essential. So make sure you're carrying a first aid kit for medical emergencies, a compass, a rope and even a Swiss knife! 3) Make Sure You Are Carrying Enough Fluids To Stay Hydrated © Pexels Not only is staying hydrated a healthy practice to follow, but when you're doing something physically strenuous like running a marathon or trekking a steep trail, it becomes absolutely essential. So make sure you've stocked up on enough water bottles and energy drinks to carry with you on your next trek so as to make sure you'll be staying hydrated and energized throughout its duration. 4) Increase Your Stamina © Pexels Trekking is no joke - it's perhaps one of the most physically taxing and draining outdoor activities you could possibly take part in. If this isn't going to be your first trek, then you might be physically trained and prepared enough to finish it. But for those of you who are going on your first trek, or those who weren't able to finish their last, increasing your stamina should be a priority. 5) Conduct Proper Research About The Trail You'll Be Trekking © Unsplash This is yet another essential tip that you need to keep in mind before going on your next trek. After all, the trail you'll be trekking on can end up being incredibly challenging - and even dangerous - if you don't conduct proper research on it. In fact, how else will you know what the right trail running shoes will be, what the proper equipment you need to carry is, and the amount of time it'll take to finish your trek?
  14. Google is about to launch a set of new devices at its annual event in New York next week and we have a fair idea what in store for all of us. There have been countless leaks that point towards a range of devices that are most probably launching alongside the Pixel 3. The 'Made By Google' event will surely feature the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, however, there are other devices slated as well. Google is expected to launch a new tablet called the 'Google Pixel Slate' along with a Google Home Hub Smart Display and more. Pixel 3 & 3 XL: What To Expect © YouTube The two flagship devices by Google are probably the most leaked smartphones in history and we have a few details that give us a fair idea — unless Google surprises us all together. The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are going to have considerable upgrades under the hood and will have a familiar design when compared to its predecessor. Internally, both smartphones are going to be identical in terms of specification and will have differences when it comes to design. The Pixel 3 XL will have a larger screen and a notch at the top that will probably host face unlocking sensors. The smaller variant will have an all-display look, similar to the previous generation with smaller bezels. The camera on the two smartphones are going to host a similar single camera setup and the only noticeable change, will be in the front-facing camera. The notch at the front will host two camera sensors where one will be a wide angle lens. As anticipated, we can expect some exceptional photography from either of the cameras, as Google enhances images, thanks to the photography algorithm. As for the innards, the Pixel 3 is expected to have Qualcomm's 845 processor under the hood and will be coupled with at least 4GB of RAM. The Pixel 3 is expected to have an Adreno 630 GPU and 64GB or 128GB of storage. The two smartphones will come with Android 9 Pie out of the box which has always been Google's selling point. Google Pixel Slate © Twitter The Pixel Slate is expected to be Google's first tablet powered by Chrome OS and will compete with Apple's iPad Pro and Surface Pro. Based on Brydge (a company making compatible keyboards) renders, we know that it will have a minimal design and will use a USB-C port. It is also expected to have a fingerprint sensor and will support both third-party and first-party keyboards. © Twitter Under the hood, benchmark tests of the secret device reveal it will have an Intel Amber Lake i7-8500Y processor and 16GB of RAM. 9to5Google also found out from the Chromium source, that it will have a 3000×2000 display, Sony IMX319 secondary camera sensors and, Sony IMX355 primary sensor. Google Home Hub © MySmartPrice Google Assistant-powered smart displays were announced at CES 2018 and we saw our first product by Lenovo shortly after. Google is now going to announce its own version of a smart display and will probably be called “Google Home Hub”. The device was discovered by MySmartPrice and it will essentially be a 7-inch display with a speaker. It is expected to be available in black and white. In terms of specifications, there will be a switch on the back-left side that will turn off the microphone, similar to Google Home. It will have other features such as Bluetooth, Wi-FI, and ambient light and colour sense. What Else? © Twitter Google is also slated to announced a wireless charging stand for the Pixel 3 and 3 XL which hints that the new smartphone will have support for the said feature. Google is also expected to launch a follow-up to last year's Pixelbook. A refreshed Chromecast is also in the books as it was accidentally sold by a BestBuy employee recently. Are you expecting anything else from Google's hardware event next week? Are you excited about the Pixel 3 and other devices? Let us know in the comments.

  16. According to a report by the Chinese Website GizmoChina, there is an isolated event where the battery of a Xiaomi device exploded, while it was being charged. The most notable battery explosions can be accredited to the Galaxy Note 7 by Samsung, due to which Samsung had to withdraw the device from the market worldwide. There have been isolated cases of other smartphone companies meeting the safe fate due to faulty batteries. © Weibo According to a Weibo post, the incident occurred when the phone was plugged in to charge near the owner while he slept. The smartphone reportedly went up in flames but did not cause any harm to the owner, as it was in a protective case. The case was able to subdue the effect of the explosion which prevented damage. Since it's Xiaomi's Mi A1, we aren't entirely sure where the incident took place, as it was launched globally by the Chinese company. The Mi A1 was a huge success in India and prompted the eventual launch of the Mi A2. Since this is an isolated event and a first for the model, it's fair to say that this is a one-off case and is not prominent for every Mi A1 device. © Weibo The explosion of a battery can be attributed to various factors such as a defective battery, defective charging cable or adapter, third-party cables, and others. As of now, it is not known whether the user was using a third party cable or had erratic charging patterns that may have caused it to explode. The affected user reportedly said, that the phone has been in use for 8 months and has reported the issue with Xiaomi's customer care. The Mi A1 launched a while ago and sports a 5.5-inch LCD display. It comes with Android One out of the box and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 chipset. The Mi A1 comes in two configurations i.e. with 4GB and 6GB of RAM. Source: GizmoChina
  17. First impressions, as superficial as they might be, are powerful. A good first impression can be the starting of something amazing, while a bad one can end potentially amazing things even before they start.

  19. Trail runs make for one of the most adventurous and exciting sports you could possibly take part in. After all, the sheer sense of adrenaline and thrill you'll be experiencing is pretty much unrivaled. But a trail run is not like your run-of-the-mill morning run - it's more challenging, more risky and requires an extra dose of training and caution on your end. This is where following some basic tips becomes useful and in some cases even necessary. And so if you're planning on going on an adventurous and thrilling trail run, here are seven tips you should keep in mind to make sure you have a fun (and safe!) run: 1) Invest In The Right Trail Running Shoes © Pexels This is perhaps the most important and essential thing you need to do before you go on your next trail run. After all, without investing in the best trail running shoes, you'd never be properly prepared to run on the rugged (and often times unstable) terrains of those steepy mountains and hills. As such, getting your hands on the best running shoes - ones that happen to be absolutely essential - is pretty much a no-brainer! Pro tip: Reebok, Wildcraft and Salomon curate some of the best trail running shoes in the market, most of which happen to be budget-friendly as well. 2) Conduct Proper Research Before Choosing The Trail You'll Be Running On © Unsplash As adventurous, thrilling and adrenaline rushing a trail run can be, it's also one of the most dangerous sports to take part in - especially if you don't conduct proper research about the trail you'll be running on. So before you go on your run, make sure you know everything you need to know about that particular terrain, including its altitude, its steepness, any potential safety hazards, nearby places of interest and even the type of fauna and flora you'll find on that terrain. 3) Stock Up On All Essential Supplies © Unsplash While trail running shoes are certainly the most important thing you'll need for your trail run, they are NOT the only thing you require. There are other essential supplies that you need to be stocking up on as well including, but not limited to, protective sunglasses, reflective running vests, waist pouches, windcheater jackets (in case your terrain reaches incredibly high altitudes), and even a bottle of sunscreen. Pro tip: MensXP has already curated a list of essential products you need to keep in handy before going on a trail run. 4) Make Sure You Account For The Weather © Unsplash While Indian weather can be just as unpredictable as the stock market, you should still make sure you go through the weather predictions for that particular terrain before you go on your run. After all, you really don't want to be caught off-guard with a severe storm, a dust storm or even a blizzard (depending on the location of your terrain as well as the time of the year), while you're in the middle of your run. 5) Ensure That You're Physically Trained And Mentally Prepared For The Trail Run © Unsplash A trail run is perhaps one of the most physically challenging and taxing adventure sports you could possibly take part in. It requires a well-honed skill set and to put it lightly, it's not for the faint-hearted. As such, you need to absolutely make sure that you are physically trained and mentally prepared for your trail run - and have a clear understanding of how much stamina you'll require and just how physically exhausting things can get. 6) Keep Your Eyes On The Trail © Unsplash While this is mostly true for any type of run, it becomes especially true when you're on a trail run. After all, there are a gamut of potential safety hazards that you might encounter while on a trail run that you simply won't during any run-of-the mill marathon - including steep cliffs and ledges to fall off, potential rock slides and even the appearance of wild animals! So keeping your eyes on the trail becomes necessary, irrespective of how tempting it can be to look at the nature around you. 7) Finally, Ensure That You Are Always Carrying Fluids With You © Unsplash As general rule of principle, staying hydrated and drinking lots of water is something you should always make sure you are practicing. But this golden rule of life becomes even more essential when you're on a trail run. So make sure you have those hydration packs stocked up and that you're always carrying water bottles and/or energy drinks that will keep you constantly hydrated.
  20. If you grew up in the 90s, then chances are you grew up loving Milind Soman. Even at 52, this man is setting major life goals for all of us. So is his fitness and life partner, Ankita Konwar. © Instagram If you follow Ankita Konwar and Milind Soman on social media, then you must have come across these posts where you can see Milind and Ankita hanging from a giant glittering ball. For those who haven't seen it yet, this is what we're talking about. © Instagram Ankita and Milind were on the sets of India's Next Top Model. Milind Soman joined the judge's panel last year in season 3. Reportedly, Ankita might make her television debut with this show. The video has already intrigued us. Ankita shared this with the caption, "Hanging out with the #theultrahusband Milind Soman on the sets of India's Next Top Model. #alwaysandforever". Is it just me or you too sang 'I came in like a wrecking ball', while watching the video? View this post on Instagram #hangingout with the #theultrahusband @milindrunning on the sets of #intm ð #alwaysandforever A post shared by Ankita Konwar (@earthy_5) on Sep 17, 2018 at 8:45pm PDT Well like they say, a couple that 'hangs out' together stays together and Milind and Ankita are taking these words quite seriously and literally. © Instagram From never bothering about trolls to enjoying their shared love for travel and fitness, Milind and Ankita's love story is proof that it's not the right age but the right time and the right person that matters.
  21. Work days can be painful, especially when it's the same old cycle that keeps on repeating itself. Sadly, that's the reality for most people, unless you're an 'Insta-model' who keeps on going to vacations all year round while conjuring money out of thin air. Add to that the monotonous dress code for most jobs, that doesn't even allow you comfort and style (ugh). So you do what you can to make yourself feel better. Idea for this week: Wearing Varun Dhawan's formal-wear with a twist for your next big meeting. © Viral Bhayani Sometimes, changing one single element from your outfit can make all the difference. Varun has ditched the quintessential belt, and has embraced the good old suspenders instead. However, support isn't what the pair of suspenders is helping with in this particular case. Like a true blue style enthusiast, Varun decided to just let them hang, and that is doing all the work. There is just something inexplicably charming about a pair of suspenders, exhibit A, if we may. © Viral Bhayani What you should keep in mind before going ahead with this outfit is that your shirt and trousers should be extremely well-fitted. By that, we don't mean tight, never tight. A relaxed fit can also be 'well-fitted'. Just make sure your shirt is not abnormally large (neither a size too small), and your trousers end just above the ankle, while fitting you snug - but also providing you ample space for movement. © Viral Bhayani Accessorize with a statement watch, and wear a pair of glasses. Even if you don't wear prescription glasses, a pair of smart clear glasses will do wonders for your overall aesthetic. Change it to sunnies when you step out. © Viral Bhayani Try it out, and it doesn't essentially have to be for a meeting. Have a great week ahead!
  22. OnePlus has been killing it in the smartphone segment for the past few years and the company will now expand their business model to TVs. OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau announced that the company is now working towards launching a Smart TV as early as next year and it will be called 'OnePlus TV'. © OnePlus In a press release, Lau said “As other consumer electronics have evolved and improved our lives, televisions have remained conventional and cumbersome. We bring inherent advantages to the industry, and with this new division, we're excited to explore the total connected user experience that can enhance everyday life.” Lau added “For most of us, there are four major environments we experience each day: the home, the workplace, the commute, and being on-the-move. The home - perhaps the most important environment experience - is just starting to enjoy the benefits of intelligent connectivity. Something that seems as simple as displaying the photos from your mobile phone to a television is still difficult to achieve. With the development of AI technology, our imagination is endless – and we are looking forward to the future.” © YouTube As of now, no details about the specs were made public however it is safe to assume that the 'OnePlus TV' will offer 4K/HDR resolution while keeping competition in mind. Affordable 4K smart TVs have suddenly become a huge market for manufacturers in India thanks to companies like Xiaomi, Thomson and others offering products at competitive prices. © YouTube OnePlus will also be looking to integrate their smartphones with the television in order to provide customers with a working ecosystem. The OnePlus TV is also touted to have an AI assistant however it has not been made clear whether it will feature Google Assistant or some other platform. OnePlus has been known to adopt a user-centric ethos that could be translated into the television division as well. We could expect the same premium offering at an affordable price from the company as we have come to expect from their smartphones. *main image for representation purposes only.
  23. It's that time of the year again, when poor, unaware folks get sucked into the dark hole that is called 'Bigg Boss'. Now, if you have clicked on this article, I'm taking this as a confirmation of your pure, unadulterated hatred for this toxic show, just like me. I confess I have never understood the fascination behind this mindless drama. I mean, sure it has all the ingredients for an entertainer—love, anger, jealousy, betrayal and the works—but watching people locked up in a house, acting like animals thanks to a diabolical script, designed to prey on the minds of innocents, is not my idea of 'entertainment'. Every year, I find myself surrounded by this name--'Bigg Boss'. Even though I have no interest in it, even though I go out of my way to never watch it on TV, it somehow manages to crawl into my life. Makes me ponder over my existence altogether! This made me realise that I need to find a way to steer clear from this evil this year, and made a set of guidelines for myself, which I am more than happy to share with you: 1. Stay Away From Your 'Bigg Boss' Loving Friends Literally. See, the harsh truth is that, people who watch this show are often overwhelmed by an uncontrollable need to actually discuss the show in detail. You WILL find yourself getting sucked into the drama without even knowing it. 2. Say Goodbye To Your TV For The Next 3 Months It's not that hard, to be honest. Heard of this gorgeous creation called Netflix? Or maybe even Amazon Prime? Well, the internet is going to be your bosom buddy for the duration of this show. Now, you must be wondering, 'why can't I just turn off the TV when the show comes on?' Umm, there are these things called promos and the never-ending ads about the show, which might just plant a harmless bug in your brain to watch the show. 3. Surround Yourself With As Much Good Web Content As Possible Like I mentioned in the point above, staying away from the actual TV might force you to dig online into some really good shows. There is a goldmine of content out there. All you need to do is scour the web, or simply ask your pals for some good recommendations. 4. Interrupt 'Bigg Boss' Chat Sessions Around You With Sudden, Violent Explosions Of Anger It works, trust me. In the next three months, more than often, you'll find a small buzzing group right next to you that is constantly discussing the show and its oh-so-juicy details. Instead of splashing a bucket of water over their heads (which is ideal), just unleash a string of curse words, or even better, threaten to fling them off the building if they bring the show up again. 5. Simply Walk Away When Someone Tries To Bring Up The Show Simple, yet so effective. I've done this countless times and it has worked perfectly. My hyper-excited bro will spot me across the hallway, walk up to me with that manic gleam in his eyes and open his mouth saying “Yaar, kal kya phodu episode tha. Tune dekha jab usne…”, and that's where I make a 360-degree swivel, and simply walk away. Do this a couple of more times and see how they get the message that you simply don't care about the show! 6. Filter Out Keywords Like 'Salman Khan' & 'Bigg Boss' On Social Media This goes a long way in blocking out the obnoxious content from showing up in your timelines and feeds. 7. Hope The 'Bigg Boss' House Inmates Get Rid Of Each Other In A Week Sure people won't stop talking about it but at least the show will end sooner and put us out of our misery. Also, can you imagine what the TRP of the show will be? Since that is basically the goal of the makers. 8. Keep Chanting 'It Will Be Over Soon, It Will Be Over Soon…' Forget 'all is well', switch to this one. Whenever you see a promo, hear a discussion around you, watch your poor family glued to the TV screen, keep chanting this fervently to yourself. 9. Do Social Service By Telling People To Find Better Things To Watch In Life You will only be solidifying your ticket to heaven by doing this great deed. Most people who watch 'Bigg Boss' don't know how much toxic content they are inviting into their minds. Tell them, and call an exorcist if need be, to help them see what a sheer waste of time in the name of mindless entertainment this show is! 10. In Worst Case Scenario, Have A Salman Khan Movie Marathon If you still can't seem to get over the temptation of watching the show, just watch 10 of his movies in a go. All that Salman overdose will ensure you never watch him and his show again!
  24. Ask any marathon runner and they'll let you know just how hard, challenging and taxing it can be to prepare for a marathon. It requires a level of hard work and determination that simply cannot be stressed enough. But you can't just win a marathon on skills and determination alone, you also need to rely on some products that'll help you run and finish your marathon, regardless of the type of course you'll be running. Now some marathon courses are your everyday run-of-the-mill ones, others like the Hell Race's SkyUltra can be a bit more challenging. For those who aren't aware of what I'm talking about, the Solang SkyUltra is a marathon course designed by the Hell Race that will make you run through the rugged and challenging trails of Solang Valley, with the Himalayas standing tall in the background. It's a course that will challenge even the most experienced of marathon runners, and is certain to make for a great experience. So before you run your next marathon - especially if it's anything like the Hell Race's Solang Sky Ultra course - then here are seven things you NEED to stock up on. 1) Adidas Trail Running Shoes © Amazon The first, and perhaps most essential, thing you need to be stocking up on before running a marathon are trail running shoes. Now what makes these trail variants different from your basic running shoes is the fact that you can put these on for ANY marathon course, whether its on a plain track or in some rugged valley. Product description: Made of synthetic fabric, featuring a lace-up closure and coming with three months of warranty, these blue and black trail running shoes from Adidas make for a great investment. MRP: Rs 4,999 Buy it here 2) X-Pro Rain Poncho © Amazon There is no accounting for the weather and contrary to what the weather man might have you believed, NO ONE can predict when it might pour. So having a rain poncho handy in case the sky gets a bit cloudy is always advisable, especially if you don't want the rain causing any hindrances. Product description: 100% waterproof and made of ripstop polyester fabric, this durable and tear resistant rain poncho from X-Pro comes with a drawstring hood and side velcro closures. MRP: Rs 667 Buy it here 3) Fastrack UV Protected Wrap Sunglasses © Amazon No, you don't need these sunglasses to look cool while running your marathon (although that certainly doesn't hurt either). More importantly, you need to invest in a pair of sunglasses, while prepping for a long run, to protect your eyes from the scorching rays of the sun. Product description: Featuring grey coloured lenses, these UV protected sunglasses from Fastrack make for a steal of a deal at their nominal price. MRP: Rs 893 Buy it here 4) Lifekrafts Reflective Running Vest © Amazon While not mandatory for a marathon that will get over during the day, a reflective running vest is absolutely essential if you are planning on running your marathon after sunset. Regardless of the type of course you're running and its location, if you'll be running in the dark then wearing a reflective vest that'll make it easier for others to see you is necessary. Product description: Featuring 360 degrees of visibility that'll make you visible for up to 750 feet in all weather conditions, this reflective running vest is fully adjustable, durable, has a front zip pocket and velcro closures as well. MRP: Rs 599 Buy it here 5) Generic Hydration Pack & Waist Pouch © Amazon The importance of carrying a hydration pack and waist pouch while running a marathon cannot be stressed enough. After all, how else will you carry those water bottles and energy drinks with you that'll help you stay hydrated and energized? Additionally, most waist pouches tend to be incredibly lightweight as well, so as to not bog you down during your runs. Product description: Made of nylon and completely waterproof, this waist pouch comes with multi pockets, an adjustable length and is available in a gamut of colours including blue, khaki and neon orange. MRP: Rs 1,050 Buy it here 6) Plutus Slim Fit Windcheater © Amazon While investing in a windcheater jacket is advisable if your marathon happens to be during a time when the weather is incredibly windy, it's downright mandatory when you're running a course at higher altitudes in the hills (as you can rest assured that the winds are going to be blowing at an incredibly high velocity). So getting this slim fit windcheater jacket, at an affordable price of Rs 1,030 at that, is something we highly recommend. Product description: Made of nylon and designed with a zip closure, this black windcheater jacket from Plutus also comes with a sporty design and two outer pockets. MRP: Rs 1,030 Buy it here 7) Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock SPF-70, 88ml © Amazon If you're planning to go for a marathon, then getting a sunblock that offers the maximum sun protection becomes essential. While this is true regardless of the marathon course you're planning on running, it becomes especially true for Hell Race's Solang SkyUltra course that'll be taking you to higher altitudes and a lot closer to the sun (and its harmful rays!) than any other course would. Product description: Stabilized with Helioplex, this waterproof, sweatproof and oil free sunblock with SPF-70 makes for a perfect choice for running long marathons in the scorching heat. MRP: Rs 1,400 Buy it here To find out more about the the Hell Race's Solang SkyUltra course, you can click here
