  1. Yes, you read that right, a “USB Condom” does exist even though it is probably the worst phrase you may have heard in the technology space. It is a device that prevents your smartphone at public charging points from transferring data. It can also be termed as a USB “data blocker” and is officially called the PortaPow 3rd-gen USB data blocker. © PortaPow It costs around Rs 500 and has the ability to kill all data transfers as it removes any data transfers by obstructing the connection physically. This device prevents scammers from phishing at public charging points as a way to steal data from users. One needs to simply attach the PortaPow data blocker to the charging end of a cable and then plug it into the smartphone. © PortaPow Scammers or hackers use “juice jacking” as a method to copy sensitive data or install malware on smartphones, tablets and other smart devices. In other cases, scammers have been able to install ransomware on smartphones and lockout users from their own devices unless the demanded ransom is paid. Scammers have also gone to the extent of leaving charging cables at these public charging points to target users who have forgotten their own cables. If you really do care about your own privacy or do not want any malware on your phone, Rs 500 is a very small price to pay. However, this data blocker is not compatible with USB-C devices. So, until the company releases a new one soon, you can get another adaptor to make it compatible with your existing devices. View the full article
  2. Until a few hours ago, Sundar Pichai was known as the CEO of Google. But, now he will also be known as the CEO of Alphabet, after co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin stepped down from their posts.' In a letter bidding goodbye to their managerial roles, Larry Page and Sergey Brin wrote "While it has been a tremendous privilege to be deeply involved in the day-to-day management of the company for so long, we believe it's time to assume the role of proud parents — offering advice and love, but not daily nagging!" © Reuters And with that, the 47-year-old IIT Kharagpur alumni became the CEO of Google's parent company as well and left the whole country beaming with pride. Page and Brin will continue to remain board members and shareholders of the company. I'm excited about Alphabet's long term focus on tackling big challenges through technology. Thanks to Larry & Sergey, we have a timeless mission, enduring values and a culture of collaboration & exploration - a strong foundation we'll continue to build on https://t.co/tSVsaj4FsR — Sundar Pichai (@sundarpichai) December 4, 2019 Pichai wrote a letter for other employees where he spoke about how change has been the only thing constant in his 15+ years in Google. According to Pichai, this change has come 15 years after he first met Page and Brin. He wrote, "I first met Larry and Sergey back in 2004 and have been benefiting from their guidance and insights ever since. The good news is I'll continue to work with them -- although in different roles for them and me. They'll still be around to advise as board members and co-founders." © Reuters He further added, "The founders have given all of us an incredible chance to have an impact on the world. Thanks to them, we have a timeless mission, enduring values, and a culture of collaboration and exploration that makes it exciting to come to work every day. It's a strong foundation on which we will continue to build. Can't wait to see where we go next and look forward to continuing the journey with all of you." While it's great news for Pichai, no one is happier than desi people who have flooded social media with congratulatory messages for him. Well, we can understand their excitement, this news brings hope to all the desi engineers. India's most robust export product is probably the 'Global CEO.' It's now a universal perception that Indian executives are leadership material.

  4. If you remember the song Sauda Khara Khara by Sukhbir, your childhood was really good. And if you are one of those who don't know what I am talking about, seriously which rock were you living under all these while? You are not a true 90s kid if you didn't break into a random dance in your bathroom when the song played on the radio; or when you're studying for your exam and there's a wedding in your locality playing the song. That's how addictive and dangerous this song is, you can never stop yourself from dancing. Since the 90s kids are now all grown up and getting married, Akshay Kumar, Diljit Dosanjh and Sukhbir decided to recreate that magic and gift you the ONLY song that deserves to be on every playlist this wedding season - Sauda Khara Khara 2.0 from their upcoming movie Good Newwz. The cast of Good Newwz minus Kareena Kapoor Khan are here to make your wedding reception crazier than ever with their latest remix version of Sauda Khara Khara, sung by Sukhbir, Diljit Dosanjh and Dhvani Bhanushali. In case you're wondering what's so special about this new version, well the answer is everything; especially the impromptu and epic naagin dance that Akshay Kumar breaks into. If your friends don't dance the way Akshay did in this song at your Baraat, disown them on the spot. People have already fallen in love with this song and we are definitely not surprised by their reaction. The lyrics are just like its ruling into my heart Awesome song guys plz listen this #SaudaKharaKharahttps://t.co/SyKXpSnS5p pic.twitter.com/TbCbp67rEc — roomið®ð³ (@RomaSherdy15) December 3, 2019 This track is just awesome.

  5. Randeep Hooda, who will be next seen playing the antagonist in Salman Khan's Radhe, is training hard to fit into his role. Foraying into this genre, the actor is leaving no stone unturned to look absolutely convincing on the big screen. However, the recent development is that he got injured on the sets of the film while canning a power-packed action sequence for the film. According to news reports, the 43-year-old actor suffered a slight dislocation in the knee and had to be rushed to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Mumbai. A picture of the actor is also doing the rounds on social media which shows him sitting on the wheelchair. He is reportedly back from the hospital, recuperating well from the injury, and is in good health now. Check out the image here View this post on Instagram A post shared by Entertainment Fan Page (@facc2911) on Dec 2, 2019 at 9:00am PST Well, Salman clearly couldn't save the actor from getting hurt on the sets. Coming back to the movie, Salman has reportedly signed a special Korean stunt team to design the action sequences. Salman and Randeep will be at loggerheads in the action sequences which may also involve a shirtless fight scene between the two actors. The action-packed film will also feature a smoke fight, hand-to-hand combat, gun shootouts and a lot more. This is not the first time Randeep will be seen sharing the screen space with Salman as the two have previously worked together in the 2016 action-drama Sultan. It will be a visual treat to watch the two actors in one frame in the much-awaited Radhe. The movie is scheduled to hit the screens on May 20, 2020, during Eid. Excited for this one? Let us know in the comments section below. View the full article
  6. Slowly but steadily, Esports is getting some well-deserved attention. And what's interesting is that it's not just the adults who are making it big in Esports these days, as even kids are making a big name for themselves by playing games like Fortnite and PUBG. You remember the kid who won $4 million by winning the Fortnite World Cup, right? Well, now, we're looking at a team of kids from Indonesia who walked away with a hefty cash prize by winning the PUBG Mobile Club Open Fall Split Global. Yes, Team Bigetron RA from Indonesia just won the tournament and walked away with a whopping $180,000, which roughly translates to about Rs 1.29 Crore. Let that sink in for a moment. You just can't keep them down! @realbigetron takes their 5th(!) Chicken Dinner of the #PMCO2019 Fall Split Global Finals sponsored by Vivo in Round 12. Is a 6th possible? https://t.co/2LpM7xrJDa pic.twitter.com/ZeTqqhD1m3 — PUBG MOBILE (@PUBGMOBILE) December 1, 2019 The runner-up also won $90,000 which is also not a small amount. It roughly translates to about Rs 65 Lakh. That being said, winning such a tournament isn't an easy thing to pull off. It takes a lot of practice since you'll essentially be competing with the best teams out there. India's Team SouL also competed in a different split, but they couldn't get through to the finals. Team SouL participated this year as well, but they only managed to put a score of 103 on the board after 16 matches, whereas the winning team had 303. Nonetheless, we're incredibly proud of the team and we hope they'll win it next time. The overall standings after 16 grueling matches in 3 intense days for the #PMCO2019 Fall Split Global Finals, sponsored by #Vivo! You have your Top 3 representing teams, @TOP_Esports_ & @MEGAEsportsSEA with @realbigetron claiming the World Championship in 1st place! #BeTheOne pic.twitter.com/NDHRBFIqhP — PUBG MOBILE Esports (@EsportsPUBGM) December 1, 2019 But coming back to the Esports part, we think it's high time people start taking Esports seriously. There's a huge scope in this field and since it's still evolving, there's a lot of room for growth. It makes us really happy to see these young talents getting all the attention they deserve. We really hope more parents will come across such achievements and let their kid pursue a future in gaming, instead of making them feel bad for gaming. View the full article
  7. Kartik Aaryan's fashion game has always been on point, and he has always known how to maintain a wardrobe that's sophisticated while being essentially eclectic. From expensive jackets that made headlines to quirky numbers, the lad never hesitates when it comes to experimenting with outfits. His latest involves wearing a torn hoodie that also has a massive hole in it (that we can see). Kartik stepped out wearing a pink distressed hoodie with thumb-holes, one that looks comfy af. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Kartik paired it with a floral bomber jacket of the same shade, that put the whole look together. The bold statement put out by the graphic roses is in perfect contrast to the minimalism portrayed by the super functional and hassle-free blue jeans. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Even though Kartik's distressed hoodie most certainly is a fashion statement and not a fashion gaffe, we certainly can take a page out of this book and start wearing (or recycling, whatever floats your boat) our old clothes. A cut or a tear can easily be salvaged, and that piece of clothing can be worn as a statement piece. After all, you know what they say: sustainability begins at home! View the full article
  8. PUBG Mobile has been a phenomenon ever since it launched for free for smartphones. In a rather major development, PUBG Corp. revealed today that the game has now hit 600 million downloads across the globe, making it one of biggest mobile games on the planet. 600 million players from all over the world have downloaded PUBG MOBILR! A special thank you to all our players for your ongoing love & support â¤ï¸we could not have done it without you! pic.twitter.com/uILCHekBN1 — PUBG MOBILE (@PUBGMOBILE) December 2, 2019 The game gained major popularity in India and other Asian countries due to the free-to-play model. As of last July 2018, the game had 400 million downloads and grown by 200 million downloads since then. PUBG mobile may not be the top downloaded game right now as that title is still being held by Pokemon Go with over 1 billion downloads. To put things into perspective, the PC version of the popular Battle Royale game had around 50 million players as of July 2018. © MensXP The game is likely to grow in download counts and player base as the game expands to more regions in the coming year. As of now, it is the third most downloaded smartphone game and it looks like it won't be slowing down anytime soon. PUBG Mobile has also announced its plans for 2020 by announcing an esports tournament that will have a total prize pool of $5 million. View the full article
  9. India has billions of mobile phone users and all of us will be paying up to 40-percent more to make calls and use data from this month. And the price is not limited to one or two carriers but includes all the major players including Reliance Jio, Airtel and Vodafone. This particular price hike will increase the tariff prices for the first time since 2016. Vodafone and Airtel have been incurring losses for a long time now and they have a January end deadline to pay up thousands of crores in additional statutory dues. Jio, however, is stepping in, to help sustain the industry and has hence confirmed that it'll be increasing the prices too. The telecom industry in India is burdened with over Rs 7 lakh crore of debt and the world's lowest average revenue per user, as noted by the Economic Times. © Reuters Analysts have predicted that this would be the biggest price hike in India's telecom industry and we'll even have to start paying for voice calls which is now being given to us for free. Both Vodafone and Airtel will increase the rates for only prepaid customers starting December 3. There's no word about the prices and it remains to be seen as to what'll happen with the postpaid subscribers. Jio will increase its prices starting December 6. Vodafone Idea says the charges will be in line with our commitment to provide simple, convenient and affordable products. Airtel said the tariff increase will range from 50 paise a day to up to Rs 2.85 per day. Jio also noted that its new prices will be up to 40-percent higher, although it has promised to provide up to 300-percent more benefits. © Reuters We'll soon be curating a list of all the new tariff plans and the best ones to choose from. We doubt if the new prices will significantly the data usage for its subscribers, although you'll certainly be paying more than the current rates. Source: Economic Times View the full article
  10. Drivers using phones while driving is still a major concern in many parts of the world. No matter how strict and efficient the law enforcers are, this still remains and will continue to remain a big issue. But the Australian police seem to have figured out a way to tackle the problem. AI Cameras! Yes, their solution is to use AI cameras to spot the drivers using mobile phones while driving. And it does it automatically, so it significantly eliminates the margin of error. The cameras being used by the New South Wales government uses AI to review photos for signs of phone use. It's the first time such a camera is being put to use to spot the lawbreakers. Once the camera flags a suspect, there are human reviewers to cross-check to prevent any false positives. For the first three times into the initiative, the drivers will get away with a warning. © Transport for NSW After that, however, they'll be imposed a hefty fine of $344 AUD which roughly translates to about Rs 17,000 and five demerit points. The fine can go up based on the zone in which you're breaking the law. The officials are pretty confident that this will lead to fewer incidents. They crunched some numbers from the test and noted that the initiative will prevent 100 fatal and serious injury crashes in the space of five years. Obviously, there's no way to tell if it'll bring down the fatalities for now. We'll know once the initiative picks up pace. That being said, we think it'll definitely keep the drivers in check. As it goes mainstream and the drivers get to know about it, they'll surely try to avoid getting caught paying the hefty fine. We really need a system like this in India where road accidents are still one of the primary reasons for a high death rate. Source: NSW Government View the full article
  11. Normally, when a cricketer moves away from the game on an “indefinite sabbatical”, people don't fret too much over him and the athlete eventually fades away from the headlines in a couple of months. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not just another cricketer. He has been one of the greatest to have led the Bleed Blue Army. His athleticism, even at 38 years of age, is manifolds better than that of international cricketers 10 years younger than him; his unique ways of making things work out for Team India, his ability to stay calm under extremely crucial moments in big games and his skills as a wicket-keeper batsman make him a once-in-a-generation player. Everything he does off the field, his love and respect for the Indian Army, his donations and selfless work for the betterment of the society make him an exceptional human being off the field as well. Everything that Dhoni does feels great. GOD can't be everywhere so he made Mahendra Singh Dhoni https://t.co/hdvcSctdvz — Prachi Das (@PrachiNotDesai) October 19, 2019 However, there is nobody, not even Mahi, that's bigger than the game. Ever since the former skipper moved away from his roles as a Man in Blue after the disappointing exit from ICC World Cup 2019, the world has been puzzled about his return to the game and what exactly is going on in the mysterious mind of 'Captain Cool'. And when he extended his leave from the Indian dressing room in November, it only infuriated the fans of Indian cricket even more. Finally, last week, Dhoni made a comment about his future. He said, “January tak mat poocho (don't ask me till January),” moving his comeback date forward by another two months. "Okay bye, Don't ask me till January" ð This is how Dhoni responded when reporter questioned about his future plans at yesterday's event. ðâ¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/XT1uB8D7Tt — DHONIsm™ â¤ï¸ (@DHONIism) November 28, 2019 Just like in a relationship, it might be too late for Dhoni to comeback and the Indian cricket team might already have moved on with someone younger like Rishabh Pant or Wriddhiman Saha. On Friday, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly spoke to the Indian media on his thoughts of Dhoni's timeline to return and whether he will be a part of the T20 World Cup or not. Dada simply said, “Please ask MS Dhoni.” In response, he said, "Please ask #MSDhoni." The former skipper recently said that till January he won't answer questions on his cricketing future. #Dhoni has been out of action since India's semifinal exit from #WC2019.#sauravganguly — newsblunt (@newsbluntmedia) December 1, 2019 "There is clarity, but certain things cannot be said on public platform. There is absolute clarity on MS Dhoni and you'll find out in time," Ganguly said. Maybe the "clarity" only suggests that Dhoni's breakup with Team India is going to be as anti-climactic as it gets. Given his quiet and noiseless nature, this could be the way the former skipper wanted to move away from the game, maybe forever this time. View the full article
  12. 2019 has been a great year for smartphones in general. From budget phones to high-end flagships, we got a ton of new phones this year. And if there's one thing that has improved a lot this year, then it's the smartphone cameras. This has been the case across different price ranges, which is simply amazing. Today, we'll be taking a look at some of the best smartphone cameras according to DxOMark. DxOMark, for those of you who don't know, is an independent benchmarking website that scientifically accesses smartphones and its lenses. They do a pretty job of testing out the cameras and coming up with a comprehensive review of the same. So, let's take a look at DxOMark's picks for the best smartphone cameras. © YouTube/ TheVerge Firstly, we have the all-rounder category, which basically means these phones are good for both photography and videography. According to the website, it's the Huawei Mate 30 Pro and the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition. Both of them are kickass devices and they pack some really good cameras. The Mate 30 Pro sports a quad-camera setup, whereas the Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition sports a Penta-camera setup with a 108MP sensor. The Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition isn't available in India right now, but we think Xiaomi is already gearing up to launch it, or at least a version of it, in India as the Mi Note 10. So, keep your eyes peeled. © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee As for videography, well, this one must've been very easy to pick. It's the iPhone 11 Pro Max. One of the reasons we think it's best for videos because it has the ability to shoot HDR videos without losing any details. That makes a whole lot of difference. Heck, Selena Gomez even shot a music video with the phone. Yes, it's that good. Next up, we have the best smartphone with ultra-wide cameras. According to DxOMark, the Galaxy Note 10+ has the best ultra-wide lens. iPhone 11 Pro Max is also equally good, but it looks like Samsung's your best bet. And when it comes to optical zoom, DxOMark says the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is the winner. Well, that's not really surprising considering the fact that you can use the phone to take some stunning shots of the moon, just like you would on the P30 Pro. Lastly, we have the low-light photography, and the website says the Mate 30 Pro is the winner here too. Sadly, the iPhone didn't make the cut here, and neither did the Pixel 4. © YouTube/ GSMArena DxOMark hardly has budget phones on the list, so we decided to add our picks. If your budget is under Rs. 15,000, then we think the Redmi Note 8 Pro is a great option for you. It has a 64MP sensor, which means you can get some stunning-looking images with crisp details. However, if you're on a tight budget, then we think you should check out the Redmi Note 8 or the Realme 5s. Both of them have 48MP sensors and have a ton of different lenses for a versatile setup.

  13. Believe it or not but it's been more than seven months since Avengers: Endgame was released in the theatres and acquired a certain place in our hearts, forever. Sure there were many loopholes, unanswered questions and open-ended theories that were given way to based on the events of the movie, but it was still one of the best ways to show the end of an era. But because we are selfish beings who can't get enough of something we like, we are here to talk about one of the biggest questions lurking in our minds as we head into the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: With the Time Stone now destroyed, how strong will Doctor Strange's powers be? via GIPHY After defeating Thanos, it was shown that Captain America decided to return every Infinity Stone to the exact time at which it was taken away from the other branch of reality, thereby restoring balance to our reality. This effectively means that the destruction of the Infinity Stones is inevitable. So what will Strange do now that his precious Time Stone isn't by his side? To start off, it is very important to understand that Dr. Strange wasn't the master of time-keeping, he's the “master of the mystic arts” and even though the 'Eye of Agamotto' was given to him for safekeeping by the Ancient One, his powers aren't limited to just that one particular item. It was in no way the source of his abilities, it was a medium through which he could channel his powers. And there are more of these ancient artifacts that Strange uses throughout Marvel Comics. via GIPHY Having said that, with the Time Stone now destroyed, Dr. Strange's enemies such as Dormammu, who was stuck in a time-loop, now have the ability to come back and engulf our world into the dark dimension. Also, it must be remembered that the quantum tunnel that Bruce Banner and Tony Stark created continues to be in the possession of the Avengers and they could use that to go back in time and take it away from Thanos' hands before he destroys them and Thor gets to chop his head off once again. But just like the Ancient One said, if anyone separates any Infinity Stone from that particular reality, it would give birth to another branch of reality, leading to all sorts of disasters and unforeseen dangers like Mephisto and Nightmare from the dream dimension and that's what Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness could be all about. via GIPHY It would be different to see Dr. Strange without the 'Eye of Agamotto' around his neck but from a storytelling perspective, it would also make it a lot more challenging for him to fight against the other mystical beings of the universe, making the future MCU movies just as exciting as the previous ones were.

  14. Influenzas are out of control, people! The latest trend in the influencer world is as weird as it gets, and it actually may be the wildest thing Instagram influenzas are influencing everyone to do. Basically, people are lying naked in the sun and just exposing their buttholes to the sun. Yep, they're letting the sun shine on places 'where the sun doesn't shine'. Man, there's no respect for that phrase anymore. Recently, a wellness influencer named Metaphysical Meagan shared details about the benefits of 'perineum sunning', or basically butt sunning, on her Instagram with her 21.1k followers, complete with a picture, of course. View this post on InstagramðPerineum Sunningð For the past few weeks I have included sunning my bum & yoniðº into my daily rising routine. ⢠âï¸Many of you have been asking about the benefits of this practice: â¡ï¸30 seconds of sunlight on your butthole is the equivalent of a full day of sunlight with your clothes on!â¡ï¸ Taught by @ra_of_earth & @certifiedhealthnut (This is an ancient Taoist practice thatâs been around for a while!) Things Iâve noticed personally In my reality since Iâve implemented this: ðSurges of energy almost immediately! ðBetter Sleep ðBetter connection to my Sexual energy & control of my Life Forceâ¡ï¸ ðSo much Creativity flowing through my life!!𧡠ðAttracting my desires & intentions with ease. ðAttracting soul tribe & people who are on the same frequency and wavelength as me. ⢠âï¸Iâm spending a maximum of 5 minutes in the morning doing this. @ra_of_earth teaches that 30 seconds is more than enough sunshine exposure down there! âï¸This is truly more energizing than slamming cups of coffee and is a great alternative to consuming neurotoxic coffee & caffeine that can disrupt your adrenal gland health.âï¸ ðThis is such a simple game changing practice!! â¡ï¸Try it out & let me know your experienceâ¡ï¸ âï¸You can do this any time the sun is out... I prefer early in the morning!âï¸ #NakedInNatureA post shared by (@metaphysicalmeagan) According to her, "30 seconds of sunlight on your butthole is the equivalent of a full day of sunlight with your clothes on!" Well, that sounds completely made up and not right at all. No offence, Meagan. She's encouraging, oh wait 'influencing', people to make this a daily practice because of how much energy it allegedly gives, and how it's better than "slamming cups of coffee". I don't know, Meagan. Sounds a little fishy to me, but since it's not harming anyone, you do you, girl. As expected, people on Twitter are ripping her and 'butt-chugging sunlight' apart. I absolutely can not believe I get to live in a world at the same that people are aiming their butts to the sun to harness its energy through their asshole. pic.twitter.com/OzZ7EP0azJ â gregg (@Gregggyboy) November 25, 2019There are weird times.

  15. While we'd love to defy being the bearer of bad news, here's something terribly heartbreaking to digest on a Monday night. The recent large bushfires in New South Wales, Australia have killed more than a thousand Koalas and burned 80 percent of their habitat, making them 'functionally extinct'. The news was broken by Deborah Tabart, chair of the Australian Koala Foundation, earlier this week and we're not liking this piece of information one bit. © ABC Now, let's get into what functional extinction really means. It doesn't mean they're extinct as a species but that the reduced population of that particular species no longer plays a significant role in an ecosystem function and that the population is no longer viable. This only happens if the population is tremendously lower in count and after the massive bushfires that took place in Australia, a huge chunk of Koala habitat was destroyed. While bushfires are common in the dry lands of the continent, this year they were a notch up. The reason though is absolutely tangible and cannot be revered anymore. The bushfires occur due to the changing climate, with extremely dry weather, rising temperature and strong warm winds. © RTE Also, Australia is quite equipped with warning its population about the wildfires, the animals around the forest suffer a lot more than the human population does. This time though 2.5 million acres of forest land has been burned down and more than 400 structures have been lost. Just last week, the news broke out about a rescue mission carried out by a woman to save a Koala. She entered the bushfire zone, took off her shirt and wrapped the injured animal in it and saved its life. The Koala was obviously safe but that's just one account of rescue for these lovable animals. Sadly, most of the Koala population residing in NSW succumbed to injuries due to the bushfires. A good Samaritan this kind lady who risked her life to save anotherðð This woman saved a koala badly burnt in our Australia's recent bush fires by taking the shirt off her back and wrapping the precious animal in it. ðð¨ð Awesome lady, thank you! ðð»â¤ pic.twitter.com/Sg2Q9sqdhQ — Angie Karan â ð±ð¾ (@angie_karan) November 20, 2019 According to experts and reports produced since the ongoing bushfires, the prolonged drought and deforestation has led to Koalas becoming 'functionally extinct' and that's rather sad. Apart from the fires that is a big cause for their death, the destruction has also taken away their main source of nutrition-the Eucalyptus tree. An adult Koala consumes up to 2 pounds of Eucalyptus leaves per day as its main staple of nutrients. While the Eucalyptus may grow back in the forests after the fire, it will still take several months which will leave the Koalas starving for food and proper nutrition. © ABC For now, Australia is doing whatever it can to save the Koala population. There has been an increased donation support, hospitalisation and full recovery for burned Koalas and people are urging the government to bring back the 'Koala Protection Act' of 2016. It would ideally work to protect habitat and trees vital to Koalas, as well as protect them from being poached. Apart from this, there are drinking stations set up for Koalas in the burnt areas of the forest and a rehabilitation centre for the burned Koalas to lead a healthy life here on. © ABC What tigers and cows are to India, koalas are to Australia and they definitely make an integral part of the animal kingdom. The Koalas are being dismissed as 'functionally extinct' today due to atrocities caused by us. Global warming and climate change is the biggest reason for these bushfires and we have more at stake in the coming future. While it may be too late to reverse the effects of climate change in an ad hoc state of existence, we can still save what can be saved and make the world a little more livable for humans and animals, alike.

  16. Smartphones that are priced under Rs. 30,000 are extremely popular in India. People prefer these phones over the flagship devices mainly because of all the value it offers for the money. You'll probably end up spending way less money and get some really powerful specs, great cameras, etc. Well, if you are planning to buy a new smartphone under Rs. 30,000, then these are the ones which we think are worth buying. 1. OnePlus 7 © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP Yes, OnePlus has already launched the OnePlus 7T but doesn't make the OnePlus 7 a bad phone by any means. In fact, it received a price cut after the launch of OnePlus 7T, making it an even better offering. You can now pick up the OnePlus 7 for less than Rs 30,000, which is awesome. You'll get a 6.4-inch FHD+ panel, Snapdragon 855 SoC, a 48MP camera sensor and more. If you're interested, then you can read our full review of the OnePlus 7 right here. 2. Redmi K20 Pro © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee Redmi K20 Pro is another great phone that's worth checking out in this price range. The phone looks stunning, sports an AMOLED panel, is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC and has a triple camera setup with a 48MP sensor. It also has a great battery life. You can check out our review of the Redmi K20 Pro right here. 3. ASUS 6Z © YouTube/ GSMArena The ASUS 6Z has now received a significant price cut in India and is now available for just Rs. 25,999. At that price, it's a great device and is absolutely worth checking out. It's powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC and comes with a 6.4-inch AMOLED panel and a massive 5,000 mAh battery. The highlight of the phone, however, is the rotating camera module, which includes a 48MP sensor. 4. Google Pixel 3a © YouTube/ Android Police Lastly, we have the Google Pixel 3a. Yes, Google has already launched Pixel 4, but it's not coming to India. So your best bet to get Google's camera under Rs. 30,000 is by buying the Pixel 3a. We use the Google Pixel 3a to shoot most of the pictures for our reviews and features, so we can confirm that it's a great phone and totally worth buying. View the full article

Well, 2019 has been a spectacular year for mobile phones with a ton of great devices coming out across different price brackets including the budget segment.

Redmi K20 © Xiaomi The Redmi K20 is one of the best Xiaomi phones of 2019 and it's a flagship-grade device that's powered by Snapdragon 730 SoC inside. It's also one of the best-looking phones that Xiaomi has ever released, as it comes with a flaming gradient finish and a bezel-less edge-to-edge display. It also sports a pop-up selfie camera and the triple camera setup at the back can take some stunning shots. 2. Realme XT © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP Realme XT is the first smartphone to ship with a 64MP camera sensor in India. It shares the same design as the Realme 5 Pro and the Realme X, but this one has a glass body, which makes it look much more premium.

Poco F1 © Akshay Bhalla/ MensXP Poco F1 is one of those devices that managed to remain in the spotlight for an entire year and still going strong. We don't know if Xiaomi is planning to release Poco F2, but the first-generation device is still a great option if you're on a tight budget. For Rs 15,999, you can get the 128GB version of Poco F1, which is quite awesome if you think about it. It's got great specs, good cameras and a whole lot more. Read our review here to find out more.

  18. Apple recently announced the AirPods Pro that comes with new features and capabilities which were not available on the original AirPods before. While the AirPods are still available to buy, the Pro version comes with unique features that are exclusive to them. Today, Apple has made the AirPods Pro officially available in India for Rs 24,900. © Apple Currently, the AirPods Pro are available via Apple Authorised Resellers across the country. It comes with noise-cancellation features that use special microphones which can detect external sound and cancel the noise appropriately. Apple says that the noise cancellation can be adjusted to 200 times per second. This new mode is called transparency mode and requires Apple devices running iOS 13.2 or later, iPadOS 13.2 or later, watchOS 6.1 or later, tvOS 13.2 or later, or macOS Catalina 10.15.1 or later. The ambient noise can be cancelled out by using the transparency mode which in turn is activated by “force sensor.” This sensor can be used to control music playback, fire up Siri and a host of other features that will be detailed in our review later this week. The AirPods Pro also come with “Adaptive EQ” that “automatically tunes music to the shape of your ear.” © Apple The AirPods Pro offers three different sizes of soft, flexible silicone ear tips that provide a better seal to cancel ambient noise. Unlike the AirPods, the Pro model is sweat and water-resistant which comes in handy for gym enthusiasts. If you want to know more about the features on AirPods Pro, you can read about it here.

  19. The streaming wars are officially underway with Disney entering the fray in India. And Disney, mind you, isn't entering as a newcomer. It has invested some $3 billion and is banking on a lot of nostalgia. Disney+ has the entire Star Wars collection in 4K, every Marvel movie released to date, a ton of original content including the highly anticipated Star Wars spinoff show The Mandalorian, and a whole lot more. So, how can you watch everything? Well, the service is officially available only in the US, Canada, and the Netherlands for now, so you can't exactly download Disney Plus and get started anywhere outside. © Disney But don't worry! We've got you covered. I spent almost the entire night trying to figure out how to get it working in India, and it was all worth the effort in the end because I managed to get it working. And guess what, I finished watching the first episode of The Mandalorian with a huge smile on my face too. It's so good! Anyway, if you're wondering how to use Disney+ here in India, then here's a comprehensive guide to help you get started and try Disney+ free for a week - Note: You must follow each and every step carefully without skipping or making any mistakes. Failing to do so will take you to a page with an error message, and it won't work. Disney+ On Android © Disney Step 1: Download the Disney+ app APK from APKPure. Install the 'ApkPure' app first and then install Disney+ from there. Step 2: Once you have the Disney+ app, it's time to get it working. Download Cloudflare's "1.1.1.1" app to get past Disney+'s geo-block. Click here to download it on your Android device. Step 3: After that, simply open the Disney+ app and it should take you to the welcome screen which looks something like this - © MensXP If not, then just search for "Disney Plus" on Google and tap the official website link (mostly the first link), click on "Log In" and hit "Disney+" when prompted. It'll take you to the app and show you the welcome page. This will only work if you're connected to 'WARP' inside the 1.1.1.1 app. Step 4: Now, simply hit the "Start Free Trial" button, following which you'll be given an option to select the subscription plan. Choose the desired plan and make the card verification payment of Re 1 (refunded immediately) to get started. © MensXP That's it. You have now subscribed to Disney+ and have access to all the Disney+ content free for seven days. Disney+ on iOS Step 1: Start by downloading the Disney+ app. You can download the app by changing the location of the App Store to the US by going to settings from inside the App Store. This may not work if you have an on-going subscription on the App Store because Apple won't let you change the location in that case. Step 2: Once you have the Disney+ app, download Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 app from here. Once done, open it and connect to the "WARP" mode. This is an important step or else it won't work. © MENSXP Step 3: Now simply open the Disney+ app which should take you to the welcome page with a button to "Start Free Trial". If not, then search for Disney Plus on google and hit the official link to open the app from there. Step 4: Click on the "Start Free Trial" button, select your desired plan and finish your verification payment of Re 1 (refunded immediately) to get started. And that's it! You've now subscribed to Disney+. Now, you can continue enjoying Disney+ on your phone itself by connecting to 1.1.1.1 or by installing a VPN extension for Google Chrome on your web browser on the computer to log in and use Disney+ there. I suggest you use "Windscribe" extension on Google Chrome because it's easy to get free data on it. You can also choose to use the VPN service of your choice, but you'll need a lot of VPN data to stream the content. © MENSXP I must point out that it's a little tricky to get the Disney+ app for your Android TV, Mac, etc. right now in India, so it's best if you use it on a phone or play it on your computer via the web browser and use HDMI to watch it on the TV. That's how I watched The Mandalorian and it was a kickass experience. If you have any queries about the procedure, then be sure to drop a comment and we'll try to get it resolved. We're not sure when Disney is planning to launch the service separately in India or integrating it within Hotstar as notified earlier, but this is the only way to use Disney+ in India right now. Good luck and enjoy the content. "May the force be with you!" View the full article
  20. PUBG Mobile Club Open Fall Split 2019 saw the South Asian regional finals come to an end on Sunday, with two Indian teams battling for the regional championship title, after securing spots for the international finals taking place in Malaysia on November 29. © PMCO/Tencent After a triple chicken-dinner snag, Entity Gaming grabbed the top spot with 220 points, while fan-favourites SouL came hot on their heels with 210, and a single chicken-dinner. SouL's Naman Mathur, aka MortaL, claimed Tencent's 'fan-favourite' award, and addressed fans, supporters and rivals in a lengthy Facebook post. Unexpectedly, Mumbai-based MortaL not only dedicated their effort in the tournament to the Indian Army, but also announced that he would be donating his share of the earnings to them as well. According to the National Defence Fund website, donations made will primarily fund technical scholarships and the families of ex-servicemen in the forces - quite the noble cause. It's been a tense year for gaming in India - stories of PUBG addiction and even a death caused by overplaying the game have given mobile gaming a bad rap amongst parents and schools, though e-sports success stories such as these prove that there's potential for not just professional careers in gaming, but humanitarian support as well. Regarding his 'fan-favourite' award, the 23-year-old gamer said, “It feels great! I was not aware of vote stuff, but later on, Tencent guys came to me and handed over the goodies saying that you have won the fan-favorite award on the website.” View the full article
  21. If you're a Harry Potter fan, then you've probably spent your early teens waiting for that magical letter to Hogwarts, trying to wonder whether Diagon Alleys is real or not, and practicing charms and spells on inanimate objects around the house. Sure, we grew up, but that magic within our hearts continued to stay on. So, while Hogwarts is a dream that probably only came true in our hearts, here's one piece of good news for ardent HP fans out there. Harry's childhood home, the 'Godric's Hollow' ( no, not the attic at Privet Drive), is now available on Airbnb and can be rented our for around Rs.10,942 a night. © Airbnb This is the same house where he got the scar from Lord Voldemort, and Lily and James Potter died saving him. So while nothing of this horrendous experience awaits you, this is just for fans who'd like to live and soak in some aesthetic pleasure. Oh, also without Lord Voldemort waiting for you! © Airbnb © Airbnb © Airbnb The house is not just famous for its fictional setting but also enjoys a history of its own. Located in the village of Lavenham in the English Country, the De Vere House used to be a former five star bed and breakfast. Its rustic setting and beautiful architecture includes one of the most photographed doors in the world. © Airbnb The one-bedroom space is made available by the owner who live in the same property. The village has over 300 heritage properties and is actually a beautiful sight for history lovers. In case you manage to save up and more importantly, get a booking here, make sure you add it to your Harry Potter bucket list! View the full article

  23. When it comes to historical figures, you just can't go wrong or you might end up hurting sentiments, and that has never resulted well for anyone. Amitabh Bachchan found himself in the middle of a controversy after referring to Maratha warrior Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj as just 'Shivaji' on his show, Kaun Banega Crorepati 11. The question was 'Which of these rulers was the contemporary of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb?' and the options were 'Maharana Pratap, Rana Sanga, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, and Shivaji.' After the episode was aired, the angry reactions came pouring in, as people were furious with Sony TV and Amitabh Bachchan for apparently 'disrespecting' the hero. Clearly, the reference has hurt the sentiments of a section of people of Maharashtra, who took to Twitter and started trending '#Boycott_KBC_SonyTV' for disrespecting the great Maratha warrior. Check out a few reactions: Wtf is this.. we want a verbal apology and what kind of video is this you can't even upload a HD video... This is even more shameless that you have done.

  24. We Indians are very proud of our festivals and how we celebrate them. That's perhaps why even when Indians move out of their homeland, their festivities also tag along to the new geolocation they call home. So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that India seeks no inspiration from the popular La Tomatina Festival of Spain. That's because India has its own desi version of the festival but the only major difference is that instead of tomatoes, this festival is celebrated using fresh gobar or cow dung. Yeah, holy shit! So in the southern village of Gumatapura in Tamil Nadu, an annual festival named Gore Habba is celebrated post-Diwali wherein people play with cow dung because they believe it brings 'good health'. Let them Festive Faeces Fly! Cow dung fight in India brings 'good health'https://t.co/X7hPHucK6n pic.twitter.com/ImWQy4IlVy — RT (@RT_com) November 5, 2019 In a video shared by RT, we can see how the villagers are jumping into a pool of cow dung and making merry smeared in dung, as happy revellers look on and celebrate. The locals believe that cow dung has healing properties and can cure several diseases, and hence the involvement of cow excreta doesn't bother them or stop them from participating. One reveller named Prabhu told RT that, “Cow dung is very natural and has a lot of medicinal benefits. Others might say if we throw cow dung at each other we will get some infections or even some disease. But with the trust of our god Beereshwara, we are playing in the cow dung, so nothing happens to us.” He also shared that the festival promotes inclusivity, as anybody from any religion and caste can participate in this festival, though no women were seeing participating in the festival. Any takers for the festival? View the full article
