  1. The Apple Watch has some handy features that have helped save lives in the past. The Apple Watch Series 4 has a new feature called “Fall Detection” which basically detects when the user takes a hard fall. The feature taps the user's wrists and sounds an alarm so that it can catch a bystander's attention. Having said that, you're not always around people that can help which is why the fall detection feature can also notify local emergency services. © Apple The way it works is that if after taking a fall a user does not respond or is unconscious for more than a minute, the Apple Watch directly contacts emergency services and sends your location to the authorities. This feature helped save a Norwegian man's life a few months ago. © Apple The feature came in handy yet again when an 80-year-old woman fell in her apartment in Haidhausen, Munich. The woman fell and lost consciousness which in turn resulted in an automatic call being placed to Emergency Services. This is what the Munich Fire Department had to say: “Last night, an 80-year-old woman fell into her apartment and, thanks to her watch, unconsciously dropped off a necessary emergency call. Her watch was equipped with a fall detection system and alerted the emergency services after the fall. A dispatcher in the integrated control centre accepted the emergency call. He heard a band announcement telling him that a person had fallen heavily. Likewise, the clock transmitted the coordinates of the scene of the accident. The police used the data to identify an address to which an ambulance had been alerted. The ambulance crew found that the door was locked and the retiree could not open it. Then they called for the fire department, which opened the apartment door by force. During this action, the smartwatch alarmed the son, who had deposited his phone number as an emergency number. Since the woman was not injured, the ambulance crew cared her only until the arrival of the son. He took over the further care.” © Apple Not only did the Apple Watch notify emergency services, but it also notified the woman's son who arrived in time to see her get treated. The woman did not require hospitalisation because of the timely response by the Emergency Services. Had there been no Apple Watch, the injuries could have been severe, as the woman was unconscious.

  2. Studying Twins is Science's love affair from the dawn of time simply because of the near perfect genetic and physical match. This is ideal for scientists to conduct studies for comparing changes in human responses to change in environments. NASA did a similar test with an astronaut who also happens to have a twin brother. Scott Kelly, U.S. astronaut suggested to NASA that he and his identical twin brother, Mark could be a subject of a study of long-term space flight. © NASA This gave scientists and researchers the unique opportunity to monitor two brothers with an identical gene footprint in two very different environments. One in space and one 250 miles below it. Results have finally been publishing and the findings are shocking. Scott experienced changes that his brother Mark did not. These changes went away six months after Scott returned to earth; however, none of these changes posed any health differences. The results are now out and these were the results according to the paper: © Reuters "In this paper, they showed there was no statistically significant difference in genetic modifications they could find between the twin in the space station with the one on the ground," said Gronostajski, the director of the University of New York at Buffalo's Genetics, Genomics, and Bioinformatics graduate program. What were the changes? © NASA Scientists and doctors took many measurements from the Astronaut's body at molecular levels. Such a study has never been done before with such accuracy. Kelly also sent his blood samples to Earth via return capsules. Here are the changes that Kelly's body faced after a year in space: 1. 91.3 percent of Scott's gene activity returned to normal after six months landing back on Earth. The genes never mutated rather respond to the environment. 2. Flu Vaccine has the same effect in Space. 3. Kelly's end caps on Chromosomes got longer in space but returned to normal form upon his return. 4. One category of bacteria in Scott's gut increased, while another decreased; the ratio returned to normal after the mission. We don't yet whether this was harmful or not as more research is needed. 5. Kelly aged faster in terms of physical appearance than his Twin Brother in that period.
  3. Even though 'Shazam' isn't a very well known superhero from the DC universe, the newly released movie has surprised the audience in a fantabulous way. The movie follows a teenage boy Billy Batson who basks in the glory of his new found powers. Fans are finding it 'shockingly good' for a superhero film and the reviews are pouring in like rain.

  4. Last year, Irrfan Khan shared some really terrible news with everyone on Twitter, the news of him being diagnosed with Neuro-Endocrine tumor, which came as a shock to him, us, the entire country. Now, it's been a year and one month and we finally got some good news - he's healthy and he's back! Ever since everyone knew about him battling such a serious illness, he's received nothing but love and support from people and he's extremely grateful for that and he said that even “soothed him in his process of healing.” Sharing a heartfelt and emotional message on his Twitter, he thanked everyone and announced he's back. pic.twitter.com/d4Osol3NvP — Irrfan (@irrfank) April 3, 2019 Well, it's great to have you back! In this entire year, he's opened up about his journey only a couple of times and it's great because he got his privacy and space while receiving treatment and healing. But, now he's back in India and people couldn't be happier that he's here. Welcome! Missed you! Welcome! ♥ï¸ https://t.co/U2kS7Uevpm — Bhuvan Bam (@Bhuvan_Bam) April 3, 2019 It will be soon.

  5. The Desi community in the UK right now are going to feel even more at home. Cab giant Ola has now launched autos in England! Ola has launched an entire fleet of Bajaj and Piaggio autorickshaws in the Liverpool area with the aim of overtaking Uber. © Twitter People were pleasantly surprised to be surrounded by colourful 'tuk-tuks' and were offered free rides as well. Also, these auto rides will ensure that a large amount of the fare will go to the driver itself. From India to the streets of Liverpool. Indian Startup OLA launches OLA Auto 'Tuk Tuks' in Liverpool, UK! pic.twitter.com/QNwSCxfK6N — Social Ketchup (@social_ketchup) March 26, 2019 Ola hit the market in a big way when it paved its way into the streets of Cardiff back in August last year. Ever since then, the company has been going quite strong and with the new fleet of cool autos, it is bound to give Uber a stronger competition. However, funnily enough, this is not the first time we are looking at pictures of an auto in the streets of Europe because in 'Aap Ka Suroor', Himesh Reshammiya already showed us how autos work in Germany, remember? © Action Concept Film Well, hope our Desi crew in Britain is having fun now.
  6. 'PUBG Mobile', as we all know, is currently dealing with a lot of backlash from the authorities in the country for being “addictive”. The situation was escalated to a point where people started getting arrested for playing the game. Amidst all these controversies, it's been reported that Tencent has now decided to restrict the game to only 6 hours of play time a day. As soon as you hit the time limit, you'll be shown a message saying, “You've played the game for 6h today. Please come back later”. Here, take a look - © Indian Noob The game will reportedly show you a warning message after 2 and 4 hours play time before reaching the 6-hour limit. There's no official word from Tencent as of now, but looking at the screenshot, it looks like you won't be able to get into a game for the next 24 hours once you reach the 6-hour limit. The play time restriction isn't showing up for all the players just yet. We couldn't spot this “Health Reminder” option in our phones, so there's no way to confirm this. Though the screenshot looks legit, we'd still suggest you take this with a grain of salt. We'll hold on to our thoughts until we get an official statement from Tencent.
  7. Whatever PM Modi says or does, it trends. That's the rule of Twitter in India. So of course, him launching a new campaign was bound to be talked about, no surprise there. PM Modi launched a 'Main Bhi Chowkidar' campaign this morning and shared a video and message on Twitter. Your Chowkidar is standing firm & serving the nation. But, I am not alone. Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar. Everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar. Today, every Indian is saying-#MainBhiChowkidar — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 16, 2019 The video is basically a song with lyrics showcasing the government's initiatives. In the tweet, he says that today, everyone's a Chowkidar and well, now people are tweeting #MainBhiChowkidar. This particular hashtag soon became the top worldwide trend on Twitter and his tweet alone has thousands and thousands of replies, retweets, and likes. Soon, people started tweeting using the hashtag saying every Indian is a chowkidar today because “Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar, everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar.” Now everyone's proud to be a chowkidar. Proud to be a Chowkidar. #MainBhiChowkidar https://t.co/XXwo5hxkrb — B.S.

  8. I am sure you've heard stories of a phone physically saving someone's life. Yes, it's usually a Nokia phone, but this time it's said to be an iPhone which seems to have saved an Australian man's life. In an incident that took place in the city of Nimbin in New South Wales, Australia, a man managed to block a bow and arrow shot with his mobile phone. NSW Police confirmed that the 43-year old man managed to survive the lethal attack with only a deep cut on his chin. According to the Police's statement, it was about 9AM when the victim drove into a driveway and noticed a man armed with a bow and arrow. He pulled out his mobile phone to take a photograph of the armed man, at which point he got attacked with the arrow shot. It's alleged that the arrow pierced through the man's mobile phone causing it to hit him in the chin. Luckily, the man escaped the lethal attack with just a deep cut on his chin. Following the incident, officers from Richmond Police District were called, and the man who shot the arrow was arrested at the scene. He's been charged with “armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage.” He was granted bail, but he's due to appear in court next month.
  9. Microsoft Courier was a concept that combined two screens to fold over like a book, with a stylus for taking notes. We've already seen foldable phones that sport multiple displays, and Microsoft wants to bring a similar form factor to laptops. The most important element of a new form factor has to be its user interface. What's the use of integrating new specs, but the same old OS that adds nothing new to the end experience? To counter this, Microsoft could be working on a new "Windows Lite" OS that brings in support for dual displays. © PC World According to The Verge, Windows Lite's "interface will be similar to Windows as it exists today," but incorporate aspects of Microsoft's giant Surface Hub display and its Windows Phone Continuum interface. This means the company will focus on keeping touch as a primary mode of input. If the new software turns out to be a success, Microsoft could use it in single screen devices as well. Essentially, this would make it a direct competitor of Google's Chrome OS. The upcoming OS version is said to be the stripped-out version of the original OS instead of a completely new OS. © Microsoft Chrome OS may have a very tiny market share, but it has taken over the budget and low-end segment massively. For a normal user who needs a machine to access the browser, check emails, and complete basic tasks, Windows 10 is turning out to be very bulky. According to Windows Central, Microsoft is using the codename “Santorini” to refer to the shell work it is doing to make Windows Lite look and feel different than the Windows 10. Further reports from ZDNet add that Microsoft could also ship a dual-display laptop. © Microsoft This isn't the first time Microsoft has tried to create a lighter version of Windows. The new S-mode supports just Microsoft Store apps, but the OS carries along a lot of baggage from the legacy OS. Even before the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft had a brief stint with Windows RT, and it turned out to be a huge failure. This time around, the company is hoping to create a niche segment that offers a new form factor and bring in the much-needed portability features.
  10. The devil works hard but people who make memes on Twitter work harder. This has been proven time and again and it's still surprising how quickly they work. In case you missed it, the first trailer for 'RAW - Romeo, Akbar, Walter' dropped today and everyone could already tell that another name will be soon be added to John Abraham's long list of hit patriotic movies. Set against the backdrop of the Indo-Pak war of 1971, 'RAW' traces the journey of a young bank employee who is trained as an Indian spy and sent to Pakistan to gather intel. The movie sounds absolutely great but the main thing that stood out to people were a few dialogues from the trailer and not even an hour after the trailer came out, the same quotes had been turned into hilarious memes. People added their own context to two specific dialogues - “Bahar nikalne ke saare raaste band ho chuke hai” and “Main tujhe aise performance ke liye train karna chahta hun, jis se hindustan ka aane wala kal badal sakta hai” - to get a lot of funny tweets. There's no way out. When your PC does not respond even after pressing Alt+Ctrl+Del. #RAWTrailer pic.twitter.com/QRxPA5vw9e — Sagar (@sagarcasm) March 4, 2019 Yep.

  11. There has been a lot of hype surrounding Apple's second-generation AirPods as they're expected to be significantly better than the original AirPods that debuted back in 2016. The new ones are said to have improved sound, always-on Siri support, and wireless charging, among other features. © YouTube/Airpods Yes, there's quite a lot of buzz around the wireless charging support, but a new leak suggests that the new AirPods could also support rapid charging which will allow you fully charge them in just 15 minutes. A tweet sent out by XDA member Max Weinbach claims that the battery level of AirPods 2, both the carrying case and the AirPods themselves, can go from 0-per cent to 100-per cent in just 15 minutes. It's way better than the current generation AirPods, which take hours to get charged. © Reuters The charging case is said to use Qi charging, although that can't be confirmed just yet. In his tweet, Max also noted that the case will be both bigger and heavier than the current one. As is the case with any other leak, there's no way to confirm this, so we suggest you take this information with a pinch of salt. Apple's first press event of the year is scheduled to be held on March 25 at Steve Jobs Theater at the Apple Park campus. Additionally, the company is also expected to make a few more interesting announcements like a video streaming service to compete with the likes of Netflix, Hulu, and more. Source: Twitter
  12. Amid the growing tensions between India and Pakistan, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that his government will release captured Indian Air Force pilot, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, tomorrow as a 'gesture of peace'. © Reuters Varthaman was kept in the custody of the Pakistan Army since Wednesday, after his aircraft crashed on the other side of the Line of Control, during combat between Indian and Pakistani fighter planes. "We have an Indian pilot. As a peace gesture, we will release him tomorrow," Khan said in his address to the joint session of Pakistan Parliament. © Twitter During his speech he also said, "Yesterday I tried to call (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi to say that we don't want escalation. Our push for de-escalation doesn't mean we are afraid." Even since the announcement was made, Twitter is being flooded with thank you messages for Imran Khan. @ImranKhanPTI you have again demonstrated a player attitude. Great job sir Ji.

  13. Akshay Kumar's 'Kesari' trailer dropped earlier today and so did our jaws after we saw how epic Akshay's performance, dialogues and the war scenes are in the trailer. While we saw Akshay Kumar in all his valour and glory, as the leader of the group of 21 Sikh soldiers who fought against 10,000 Afghan warriors; all that desi Twitter saw was memes written over it. Dharma Productions Within minutes of the release of the trailer, Twitter was flooded with memes on Akshay Kumar and the powerful dialogues he said in the trailer. In fact, not Akshay Kumar, thanks to 'Kesari' and these funny memes, Ajay Devgn is also trending for reasons we all know. From Ajay Devgn's 'Zubaan Kesari' to jokes on 'Chal Jhootha', Twitter had all sorts of jokes to crack on the 3-minute video that has already made 'Kesari' one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2019.

  15. The Samsung Galaxy S10 launch is scheduled for February 20th 2019 and we pretty much know everything about the phone right now. There have been numerous CAD leaks, along with reports on the alleged specifications. But thanks to MKBHD, we're getting a first-hand look at a dummy S10 model that is used by the case or cover makers to closely work with. There are going to be three variants of the S10 this year, the flagship S10, the S10+, and a slightly cheaper S10e. Samsung has been launching two variants of the S-series flagship for quite some time, and now the company wants to lure buyers with a slightly cheaper option that carries flagship enough feature, at a lighter price. Considering the success of the iPhone XR, the S10e seems to be a safe bet right now. We hope it won't cannibalise sales of the elder sibling, just like the cheaper iPhone did. The S10 will have a 6.1-inch display with a 3500mAh battery, while the S10+ shall sport a 6.44-inch display with a 4000mAh battery. The S10e is reported to have a slightly smaller 5.8-inch screen, and maybe even a smaller battery. © YouTube/MKBHD The phone has a signature Samsung design, consisting of metal and glass. The glass back is obviously a fingerprint magnet, and the front is strikingly similar to the previous iterations. The bezels are ultra slim, and the chin has been slightly cut down as well. On the left is a secondary utility button, basically a dedicated button for Bixby smart assistant. The first thing you'll notice about the S10 and S10+ is its camera array. Both sport triple lens setup on the rear, while the S10 has a single front camera. The S10+ gets a dual camera setup on the front, and all the front sensors are housed in a punch-hole design. We've already seen this technology in action with the A8s, and Samsung likes to call it the Infinity-O display. © YouTube/MKBHD The physical fingerprint sensor is no-where to be seen and we're assuming it'll be now located under the display. We've already seen this technology in action with the multiple phones like the Vivo NEX and OnePlus 6T. Lastly, the headphone jack is located on the bottom, and Samsung isn't yet forcing us to move on. This shall be the 10th anniversary of the S-series smartphones, and to make things even more interesting, Samsung could launch an S10+ variant with 1TB of internal storage. However, these are just pre-launch rumours and reports, and we'd ask you to take 'em with a pinch of salt since the final product could definitely vary.
  16. If you've ever faced an issue of running out of storage space, you may have invested in a good microSD to cure your woes. However, using a microSD comes with limitations as smartphones can support only a limited amount of storage. In fact, only the Galaxy Note 9 can support an SD card with 512GB of expandable storage, making it the first smartphone to support a total of 1TB storage. However, we all know that internal storage works at least 10 times faster than a memory card and it seems like Samsung is looking to remove this problem altogether. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Samsung is known for making premium smartphones; however, the South Korean company also has a very profitable memory division. The company already dominates the SSD segment for PCs and laptops and the company is now taking the game to the next level for smartphones. Samsung announced that it has started to mass produce a 1TB flash storage chip for smartphones and is going to scale production by the first half of the year. © Samsung “Smartphone enthusiasts will soon be able to enjoy storage capacity comparable to a premium notebook PC, without having to pair their phones with additional memory cards,” Samsung said. Currently, Samsung makes a chip that is capable of holding 512 GB of memory and can be found on the Galaxy Note 9. The new chip is said to add double the amount of memory without ever having to use an external memory card. This new chip is also said to improve performance with faster write and read speeds. Samsung says that the new tech reaches speeds up to 1,000 megabytes per second (MB/s). This roughly translates to transferring a 5GB video file in just five seconds. The new memory chip will also help Samsung smartphone cameras to take better videos with higher resolution and frame rates. © Samsung However, we may not see this new tech on a smartphone just yet as it is still in production and won't be ready in time for the Galaxy S10. However, there is a good chance that Samsung may make a 1TB model of the Galaxy Note 10 if production is scaled in time. This is just pure speculation and there's no way to know right now whether Samsung will implement the new 1TB storage with the Galaxy Note 10.
  17. Bhai is back! Actually, about six of him are back, because that's kind of what the teaser of the much-awaited movie 'Bharat' is suggesting. Salman Khan, obviously, has the monopoly over Eid movie releases and while he missed the mark last time when his business just remained his business and none of our business, it looks like he's back to redeem himself. Or not, because we all know even if this is a disaster like 'Race 3', it will still earn hundreds of crores for sure. Coming back to the teaser, it seems like the movie will follow his character Bharat from different stages of his life with vastly different professions, everything from a Navy officer and then an ageing boxer. While Sallu Bhai's fans were busy raving about the teaser, everyone else got to work on the obvious, which is turning the teaser into memes. From all of Salman's different looks to the surname dialogue, everything was perfect meme material and people on Twitter came through, of course. The universal license plate? When you don't want the cops to note down your vehicle number after an accident. #BharatKaTeaser pic.twitter.com/un5XleI7hv — Bollywood Gandu (@BollywoodGandu) January 25, 2019 You just gotta do it.

  18. The Apple Watch Series 4 comes with an ECG function that was recently released in the U.S. Since it became available for about a month, the feature is already proving to be a useful one. It was able to detect atrial fibrillation with the new feature and saved a man's life in Nashua, New Hampshire. Barry Maden originally bought the Apple Watch to “keep a closer eye on his health after suffering a brain injury.” He bought the Apple Watch for it's Fall Detection feature. “He originally got it because they have a new fall risk app where, if he were to fall and I'm not nearby, the fall sensor will sense that he fell and call 911,” said his wife, Tara Maden. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla He originally thought he was suffering from anxiety due to travelling for the holidays. However, his Apple Watch alerted him that his heart appeared to be in A-fib. It isn't clear if Maden used the ECG app right away to detect the A-fib. However, it was enough for him to double check if he was suffering from something serious. He soon thereafter took himself to the emergency room. © Apple At the hospital, doctors performed their own tests using a more advanced ECG device to verify the Apple Watch's discovery. It was soon discovered that Maden's “heart was essentially stopped and restarted by doctors.” The Apple Watch has been found to save lives previously and recently saved a woman from drowning in water as her car flipped over.

  19. Nvidia just announced the GeForce RTX 2060 at CES and the new GPU offers its brand new ray-tracing tech for a budget. If you are currently looking to build your own PC or upgrade your GPU, the GeForce RTX 2060 will be available in India for RS, 31,000. It's available to pre-order from Nvidia's Indian website and is expected to be available by January 15th. Since this is the price for the founder's edition, you can expect the price to be higher from other OEMs. © NVIDIA According to the company, “the RTX 2060 is 60 per cent faster on current titles than the prior-generation GTX 1060, NVIDIA's most popular GPU, and beats the gameplay of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. With Turing's RT Cores and Tensor Cores, it can run Battlefield V with ray tracing at 60 frames per second.” © NVIDIA It's clear that Nvidia is positioning the RTX 2060 for gamers who want a cheaper solution to the latest tech on offer. Since the Indian gaming marker is sensitive to aggressive pricing, the RTX 2060 is expected to make PC gaming more accessible than ever before. The fact that RTX 2060 offers real-time ray tracing on a budget, is a sure shot winner amongst the Indian gaming audiences. I personally use the RTX 2080 Ti (Zotac AMP version) and it is capable of offering 60FPS in 4K. Having said that, the RTX 2060 is not that card that will deliver a similar performance, however, it is perfect for gamers who are happy with Full HD (1,440p) gaming. © NVIDIA The RTX 2060 comes equipped with 6GB of GDDR6 memory and 240 Tensor Cores that can deliver 52 teraflops of deep learning. Custom boards, including stock-clocked and factory-overclocked models, will also available starting January 15th, from top add-in card providers, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac.
  20. Sony has established a name for itself and has already tried its luck with every type of speaker. Whether they're big, small, gesture-activated, or flashy, Sony's covered everything. Now that you've covered almost every type of possible challenge, what's next? For Sony, it's party and chill, literally. The company has launched a new speaker at CES 2019 and it's perfect for outdoor parties. The GTK-PG10 is high on power and comes with a dedicated outdoor party mode. But, the most interesting aspect of the speaker is its design. © Sony / GTK-PG10 The speaker has foldable top panels that house the tweeters along with four cupholders to fit Solo cups in while you get your dance on. It features a built-in battery and is rated to offer up to 13 hours on a single charge. The built-in Digital Signal Processor (DSP) can adapt to the outward-facing design and adjust the output accordingly. It also features an FM tuner and support for Sony's Fiestable Android app. Among other things, the party speaker also has a microphone input for karaoke and a charger for recharging mobile devices. The GTK-PG10 is priced at US$ 249 (Rs 17,500). © Sony / GTK-PG10 On the flashy side, Sony launched the XB32 that is supposed to be a midrange speaker. It has an IP67 rating, washable fabric, and dust/shock resistance. However, this model has longer battery life of up to 24 hours per charge, as well as support for charging USB devices. The XB32 is also Fiestable compatible with colours and motion control. It also has an inbuilt strobe light just for the fun of it. The speaker is priced at US$ 150 (Rs 10,500). © Sony / XB32 Sony also launched a small fist-sized speaker XB12, currently the most inexpensive of company's new speaker lineup, priced at US$ 60 (Rs 4,200). It has a cylindrical design and IP67 water- and dust-resistant rating. Sony says the speaker is also "completely party-proof". In addition to the portable party speaker, Sony has announced refreshed versions of its Extra Boom Bluetooth speaker lineup, including the XB72 and XB22. Sony has not confirmed exact availability but has stated all three XB models will hit store shelves sometime in the Spring.
  21. Netflix is synonymous to binge-watching, and we've all done it. The company pushes the complete season of a show all at once so we don't have to wait for weekly episodes. Start watching a show, and after hours you'll end up completing the piece in one go. This trend has given rise to the infamous "Netflix and Chill" lifestyle that millennials are so fond of. 13-year-old Damir Carter from Delaware was doing the same. His mother asked him to go to bed early, but in defiance, he continued binge watching The Flash on Netflix. He was supposed to sleep by 9.30 PM, like every good kid, but his resistance ended up saving the family from a house fire. © WPVI At 1 AM he heard things breaking and thought it's just the house cat messing around with things. Soon, he noticed smoke coming from the hallway and discovered a huge fire in the house. He immediately started yelling and woke up his mother, thankfully the family and he made it out of the fire unhurt. “And then I saw smoke in my hallway, and then I saw the fire. When I saw that, I started yelling for my mom because she was asleep at the time,” Damir told WPVI. “If Netflix wasn't there, I probably would have gone to sleep.” © WPVI Authorities believe it was a power strip that had overheated and sparked the fire. This is not the first time the family has lost a home to a fire. Around four years ago, another blaze destroyed their old home, Borden said. The family has lost all its possessions in the fire and the mother said she was just happy she and her son were safe. On a light note, the mother said Carter won't be getting grounded this time for defying the bedtime rule. © MarketWatch “I don't know where we would have been if he listened and went to sleep,” Damir's mom said via a post on Facebook. “Our house is gone, but we are still standing.” While Netflix too is being credited for saving the family, things haven't been going well for the streaming site in the past few days. Since the release of Bird Box on the site, many have tried to imitate the fictional characters, endangering their lives. Netflix even had to issue a warning after video of a blindfolded person falling down a subway stairwell surfaced on Twitter.
  22. Two years ago I did a story on how video games are much larger than movies/TV shows because of its flexibility in storytelling. I've been playing choice-based games ever since it was introduced to video games and the popular storytelling style was taken mainstream thanks to games from studios like “Telltale Games”. You would have to make choices that would change the plot of the story drastically and it seems like Netflix took my challenge seriously. © Mensxp Netflix is now taking the interactive-based storytelling style to mainstreams shows like “Black Mirror” and it works like a charm. The streaming giant already introduced the interactive feature to kids content like 'Puss In Boots'. I was invited to Los Gatos to check out 'Bandersnatch' - a brand new Black Mirror movie where I could choose my own story by clicking on multiple-choice questions that would affect the plot. It's Netflix's first interactive content for adults and is now available to stream/play on various devices. 'Bandersnatch' is a story about a game developer who is looking to make a video based on a “create-your-own fantasy” book of the same name. The game he sets out to develop also happens to have a series of choices for players. We learn during the early chapter that the author of the original 'Bandersnatch' went completely nuts while he was writing his book and ended up killing his wife. You will face a similar dilemma when you make choices for “Stefan” in Bandersnatch. © Netflix One of the key moments in 'Bandersnatch' is when Stefan is offered a job and it's up to you whether you want to accept or decline the offer. While exchanging notes with my peers at the conference, it was quite cool to notice that 90% of the people answered “Yes” while I declined the job offer. This is where the interactive storytelling feature makes things exciting. Not only did I experience a completely different story from my counterparts, I even experienced a very different ending. Apparently, there are five different endings in 'Bandersnatch' and I happened to experience three of them. © Netflix What's cool about the interactive feature is the ability to go back and change your choices. In fact, I ended up spending more time retracing my choices simply because I wanted to see if I could break the plot — I couldn't. That's probably because they're over a million if not a trillion unique permutations of the story. There are a plethora of choices you will need to make that can impact the story or sometimes just change certain details. The overall plot of 'Bandersnatch' also responds and adapts to your choices just like you would experience it in video games. For instance, in the very beginning, you will choose what cereal to eat for breakfast. You will notice later in the movie how the plot responded to your choice. How Did Netflix Make It Happen Choice-based video games are easier to make as these games are coded from the ground up to provide an ecosystem for such a feature to flourish. The same cannot be said about a live-action movie as it's way more complicated. You need to shoot multiple scenes from different angles, shoot different reactions to choices and make sure you follow every permutation with utmost accuracy. Netflix engineers built their very own script-writing tool that enables them to tell choice-based narratives. Netflix calls it a Branch Manager where there were able to track every choice and the flow of the narrative based on each choice. Netflix also pre-caches content so that users can stream the content even with poor internet and the app now pre-caches two paths every time you are faced with a choice. Due to this very reason, the interactive episode can be experienced only on supported devices such as Android smartphones, iOS devices, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and certified Smart TVs. Is It Still Black Mirror? © Netflix Hell yes! Just like every other Black Mirror episode — 'Bandersnatch' ends up f*cking with your head as well. However, since you are making the choices for the protagonist, the head-f*cking is a lot more amplified. This is precisely why the interactive feature was a perfect fit for a Black Mirror movie. I have to confess, when I was introduced to the feature at the conference, I quickly dismissed it as a Telltale rip-off/gimmick. However, after experiencing the interactive movie for myself, I could not keep the remote down and make every choice possible to f*ck up Stefan's life. I soon realised what went behind in the making of 'Bandersnatch' and simply left the room with endless questions in my head. So yes, 'Bandersnatch' is a typical Black Mirror episode where you will be left in a state of shock and maybe even remorse. Is This The Future Of Entertainment? Streaming has already taken over our lives and Netflix is going in the right direction by involving its viewers in the plot of 'Bandersnatch'. It's a feature I always wanted on live-action content and Netflix has yet again proved me wrong. Sure, there's still room for traditional linear story-telling on Netflix, but the future of story-telling sure has taken a turn, thanks to 'Bandersnatch'. Just make sure you don't lose your remote while watching/experiencing the latest Black Mirror movie.
  23. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' spectacular wedding in Udaipur was straight out of a fairytale. A grand palace, a queen waiting for her king, guests dancing around the couple and basically all the joy in the world embedded in one spot. The wedding was what dreams are made of. View this post on Instagram Once upon a fairytale... @nickjonas Link in bio @people A post shared by Priyanka Chopra Jonas (@priyankachopra) on Dec 4, 2018 at 7:12am PST Rajasthan has been a hot spot for lavish weddings and the recent grand celebrity wedding has revived the craze for Indians wanting to call in their New Year with a bang, amidst the grandeur of a gorgeous palatial hotel and maybe peacocks dancing for company. However, this sudden rise of demand has obviously affected the supply and now, the surge in the prices of the average hotel room in a luxurious property is actually off the lid. In fact, a night at the Lake Palace in Udaipur can cost you around 11 lakhs! © TOI As per the latest report in TOI, there is more than a 40% jump in prices for spending 31st December at a luxury property. However, these tariffs do have takers as well because the people who are spending their money want a luxurious experience and money is not a major criterion. But, in case you were planning to flock to the gorgeous state then maybe your budget needs a revision. Anyway, guys, it matters not where you call in the New Year, it matters with whom you call in the New Year. Right?
  24. Samsung is the main supplier of OLED panels that are being used in all high-end iPhones, such as the iPhone X, XS and XS Max. This resulted in a costlier production procedure which shot up the price of the iPhone to Rs 1 Lakh. Samsung is now looking to reduce the cost of OLED panels that are currently being used and hopefully make it thinner and lighter at the same time. © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP As per a report by Korean website ETnews, the new OLED panel from Samsung is called 'Y-Octa' and will have a display with touch integrated within. This basically reduces the thickness of the OLED panel and in turn, makes it lighter too. This type of OLED panels is currently being used by Samsung for the Galaxy Note 9 and S9. The report also adds that at least one of the 2019 iPhones is expected to have the same display tech. © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP Samsung has already approached Apple in the past for using the same type of display in new iPhones. The report by ETnews says, "A senior Samsung Display representative visited Apple in March to propose the supply of touch-integrated OLED panels.” The screen technology in question should be ready in time for next year's iPhone launch, which is expected to take place sometime in September. The report adds that this new screen will have a limited supply initially and this could translate to only premium iPhone models sporting the new lighter and thinner design. As production of the 'Y-Octa' display increases, we could see this display technology trickle down to all iPhone models that use an OLED panel. Source: ETnews
  25. Not very long ago, Indian cricket was rocked by a controversy over the presence of the cricketers' wives and girlfriends (WAGs) on the overseas tours. The Indian team was touring England when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was called out for its dual standards regarding the WAGs. In one particular incident that came ahead of the second Test, Virat Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma was seen posing in the photograph with the other cricketers, who were invited by the Indian High Commission in London. The Bollywood actress stood near Kohli in the centre of the picture, while none of the other members' wives or partners were to be seen. #TeamIndia members at the High Commission of India in London. pic.twitter.com/tUhaGkSQfe — BCCI (@BCCI) August 7, 2018 Soon, the Indian cricket fans came out all guns blazing against the BCCI for its double standards over the treatment of the other WAGs. Indian opener Rohit Sharma was also seen liking a tweet from a fan, who pointed out how the BCCI had different rules for different players. Ahead of the series, the Indian board had confirmed that the WAGs will be given only 14 days to accompany their partners - a directive that was only applicable after the first three Tests. Amid all the fracas, the Indian captain had urged the BCCI to alter the ruling and let them stay for the full course. And, finally, as Kohli requested, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) has now decided to let the WAGs stay for the full course of the campaign, barring the first 10 days. © Instagram According to a TOI report, Kohli had asked the Board to allow the Indian WAGs to accompany the cricketers after the passing of 10 days on the overseas tour. The new ruling was passed in support of the Indian cricketers, as the CoA believes that the WAGs' presence will only create a positive atmosphere within the team and will provide an able support system. A similar rule was applied by Cricket Australia when their CEO James Sutherland had allowed WAGs to give company to the cricketers, despite their presence being blamed for the Aussies' dismal outing against England during the Ashes back then. Earlier, Kohli also faced a lot of backlash for requesting the BCCI to extend the stay of Indian WAGs during their overseas tours: Mujhe shaq hai Kohli ki biwi Bollywood ke satoriyon se mili hui hai...wo betting karti hai aur ye uuljalool team selection karta rehta hai ðµ https://t.co/SBbLjqsEQL — Hemant (@hemant10) October 17, 2018 It shows @imVkohli is trying to push his personal plans.Virat you are good cricketer but few rules need to be followed by everyone & especially when one is captain.Either play cricket or stay back with your wife. @BCCI — Rohit Kumbhojkar (@ROHITKUMBHOJKAR) October 7, 2018 @imVkohli u r the most selfish who want to change @BCCI rules & why @AnushkaSharma is present at team's meeting . ð ð ð — Beinghumane (@Intern24) October 7, 2018 bhai @imVkohli tere Honeymoon khatam hi nahi ho rhe hai...ðð — Jeetu (@BACK_BencherGuy) October 7, 2018 @imVkohli do not take this personal but you are not going on a family trip.

So asking this is absurd. #Kohli #Anushka — John Ranjith (@JohnRanjith) October 7, 2018 Actually Virat kohli next honeymoon pe jana chahata hai sarkari kharche per agar mood hua toh do char match khel lega hare toh harey jetey toh jetey honeymoon pe koi asar nahi padna chahiye..very unprofessional cricket — INDIA (@bluspidor) October 7, 2018 Looks like @AnushkaSharma is the real captain of team India ðð — Muhammad Shayan شاÛاÙð®ð³ðºð¸ð¨ð¦ðµð¸ (@shayandubai) October 7, 2018 What kind of player is he?
