  1. The looming fear of hefty challans under the Motor Vehicle Act is making everyone a bit too careful on the roads and that's a great thing. People are finally driving around with a bit more discipline and awareness and the fines have gone down by a large percentage across various cities of the country. (c)India Today People are doing everything in their power to avoid getting 'challaned'. From wearing their seatbelts religiously, to following traffic lights to even slowing down in front of a speed camera and that's making a lot of difference in traffic and road sensibilities. Honestly, the only time to really pay heed to road safety issues, with the amount of population our country has is right about now. And if we can maintain smooth functioning on the road, half our stress will definitely go away. (c)BCCL Some people are following traffic rules so ardently, even their fellow non-human passengers are adhering to them. A man was seen with his dog on a two wheeler, and while the man was riding, the dog was sitting behind him calmly, while wearing a helmet. The picture has since been doing the rounds on Twitter and someone even shared it with a caption saying: 'Delhi me traffic police ka Khauf' Somebody shared this pic with a caption *Delhi mei traffic police ka Khauf* @dtptraffic @DelhiPolice pic.twitter.com/Lz9m1AXTko — Himanshu Gupta (@gupta_iitdelhi) September 5, 2019 My all-time.favourite #doggo pic from #delhi â¤ï¸ such a good boy, this #dog. Should be @DelhiTrafficPol campaign for using helmets pic.twitter.com/briwXXuZYB — prerna singh bindra (@prernabindra) October 19, 2019 Quite honestly, this made our day and how! Maybe it's not the fear of the cops as much as it's fear of life and while the man carefully rides his two wheeler around town, he has definitely made sure his dog is safe at all times. We have a great lesson to learn from the four-legged, once again. Maybe adhere to the traffic rules set out for you because at the end of the day they're not made to extract money from you, but to ensure your own safety.
  2. It's that time of the year when you might want to splurge on a new smartphone and call it a festive season shopping. 2019 has been an exciting year for smartphones, so there are a lot of options to choose from irrespective of the budget. Well, in case you're looking to keep your expenses in check and want to go for a budget phone, then here are the ones which we think are worth buying this festive season - 1. Redmi Note 8/ Note 8 Pro © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Xiaomi has been the top player when it comes to budget phones for quite some time now, and this year they've launched a lot of good phones. More recently for the festive season, the company has launched the new Redmi Note 8 and the Redmi Note 8 Pro. If you're not willing to spend more than, say, Rs 10,000 or Rs 15,000, then you simply can't go wrong with either of these phones. While the Redmi Note 8 brings a quad-camera setup, Snapdragon 665 SoC and a 4,000 mAh battery, all under Rs 10,000. If you a bit more money to spend, then simply go with the Redmi Note 8 Pro which brings a quad-camera setup with a 64MP Samsung GW1 sensor, the new Helio G70T processor with up to 8GB RAM and a 4,500 mAh battery. 2. Realme 5/ 5 Pro © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Realme has also launched a ton of phones this year and the company's latest offering in the budget range i.e., Realme 5 and the Realme 5 Pro are some of the best budget phones we tested this year. They both have a quad-camera setup and have a really cool design. You get a massive 5,000 mAh battery with the Realme 5, and a 48MP camera and support for 20-Watt VOOC 3.0 charger in the box with the Realme 5 Pro. In terms of the specs, both the Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro seems pretty compelling for the price. Realme 5 is powered by Snapdragon 665 SoC whereas the Realme 5 Pro is powered Snapdragon 712 SoC and comes with up to 8GB of RAM. You can read our full review of the Realme 5 Pro right here. 3. Samsung Galaxy M30s © YouTube/ Techbar The new Samsung Galaxy M30s is also a great option if you don't want to spend too much on a phone. It looks sleek and the AMOLED display on the front also looks absolutely gorgeous. The phone also sports a triple camera setup at the back which includes a 48MP sensor. However, the highlight of the phone has got to be the massive 6,000 mAh battery at the back. This is a great phone if you want to gift it to, say, your parents. 4. Poco F1 © MesnXP/ Akshay Bhalla Yes, there are a lot of rumors about the launch of Poco F2, but we're not sure if it's happening at all. In the meantime, if you want to buy a new phone right now, then the original Poco F1 is still a surprisingly very good phone. The phone is now available for just Rs 14,599, and it's just a no brainer at that price. You can read our review of the phone right here.
  3. Who said your job has to be monotonous, and that you should tolerate a drab and dull day at work? Humans are known to be innovators and we always find ways of changing things around us to serve our purposes better. Take the example of this Sikh traffic cop, for instance, who not only took care of his duty but also made it musical and fun. A video featuring a Sikh traffic cop from Chandigarh has gone viral on social media, where he can be seen delivering lessons on traffic rules and regulations through a Punjabi song. This can only happen in India and that too by a Punjabi cop.pic.twitter.com/7jdhZaakaO — Tarek Fatah (@TarekFatah) October 18, 2019 And the tunes of this cop's anthem is not just any random combination of musical notes, but inspired by our OG Punjabi singer Daler Mehndi's memorable 90s song Bolo Ta Ra Ra! The only difference being that the lyrics no longer talks about a woman, but instead, reminds people on the road about traffic rules that must be followed to avoid any unnecessary hassles. The cop urges people to park at the appointed spots and avoid getting their car towed or stolen in the process. The cop seems to be enjoying this part of his job, and we're sure commuters wouldn't have complained either. People online cannot stop enjoying themselves and laugh along with the video.

  4. It's no secret that Apple has been rumoured to be working on the next iteration of the AirPods. It was reported earlier that the new AirPods will launch sometime next year. Now, however it seems like it will come sooner than that. The new AirPods are rumoured to be called the AirPods Pro and will have a noise-cancelling feature as reported earlier. © SlashLeaks A new report by China Economic Daily suggests that Apple will be releasing the AirPods Pro later this month. It is expected to cost $260 (~Rs 18,500) and will also have basic water resistance for gym use. Earlier, the design of the upcoming AirPods was leaked and it shows that the overall design language will remain the same with subtle changes. It was also disclosed in the iOS 13.2 beta and the same update also had a tutorial about how users can adjust the noise cancellation on the new AirPods. © Twitter/RieplhuberGD The new AirPods will compete with Amazon's newly announced Echo Buds and the upcoming Pixel Buds. The noise cancellation feature on truly wireless earphones is expected to work similarly to the Sony WF- 1000XM3. It will adapt the sound in the earphones according to your surroundings and will block out ambient noise when needed. Sony uses its own 'Headphones' app to enable the feature and it will be interesting to see how Apple will implement its version of noise cancellation on the AirPods Pro. Of course, there is no certainty whether the earphones will launch later this month even though there are have been rumours of Apple hosting an event in October. Having said that, we are now approaching the end of the month and it looks highly unlikely. Source: China Economic Daily
  5. As the next year draws closer, several of us are looking forward to that little extra edge on our payroll. Although you're unlikely to impress your company as much as Satya Nadella has in his five years at Microsoft. After the company smashed through a $1 trillion capital value and stole the tech crown back from Apple, he's been awarded for his efforts with a 66% hike and a Rs 7 Cr bonus - amounting to a grand total of just over Rs 305 Crore for 2019. © Reuters That's a lot of crores. The annual report states, "In reviewing Mr. Nadella's annual equity compensation, the independent members of our Board recognized the benefit of Mr. Nadella's proficiency as CEO, as demonstrated by Microsoft's achievements during his tenure." Nadella has been the catalyst of many powerful changes in Microsoft's business and development ecosystem. One of his biggest moves was focusing on cloud computing through Microsoft's Azure platform and the success of Windows 10. When Nadella joined the company in 2014, its valuation was somewhere around $302 billion - a number that skyrocketed to $1.075 trillion in just five years. © Reuters It's an even more impressive feat considering the state of Microsoft back in 2014. After several botched investments, an unsuccessful mobile platform and the bug-filled disaster that was the Windows 8, Nadella didn't exactly inherit a 100% healthy business when he took the wheel from ex-CEO Steve Ballmer. Through cross-platform innovations, great support and a truly next-generation emphasis on computing, it seems like Nadella's story with Microsoft is just beginning, and promises to give Apple a run for its money.
  6. It all goes back to the year of 2017, when a kind and rather daring Indian Army officer took it upon himself to call out the government for its decision to scrap one single rule, that impacted the lives of hundreds of serving soldiers in the Armed Forces. The man is Colonel Mukul Dev and the one incident that turned him into a true warrior for legions of fellow officers, was when he decided to send out a legal notice to the then Defence Secretary Sanjay Mitra, notifying him that he had sixty days to reverse the newly-passed order which took away the benefits of free ration from defence officers. © Twitter/Warrior_Mukul Now, after two years of a long battle, Colonel Dev has finally won the fight for free ration restoration, but he also had to pay a price for it - his promotion. But before we delve into the details, let's get a quick overview of the backstory. The Backstory In 2017, as per the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, the Indian government announced that as of 1st July of that year, the free ration entitlement of officers in peace postings will be replaced with a daily ration allowance of Rs 96.03. This didn't sit well with Colonel Mukul Dev and he threatened to take legal recourse if the new rule was not reversed at the earliest. Col Dev was serving as the Deputy Judge Advocate-General of Headquarters 12 Corps in Rajasthan at the time. The Notice © BCCL As per a TOI report from 2017, Col Dev's notice stated that nowhere in his employment agreement was it mentioned that the provision for free ration could be substituted for money, and therefore, the Centre's decision violated the terms of his employment. He had further added that the decision is 'illegal', because it altered the terms of his service without his consent. The Other Side © Reuters While the Centre's decision, when considered in isolation, seems unjust, it did come from a point of need. The government took the decision when allegations of deep-rooted corruption in the food supply chain of the Armed Forces was exposed, following which many ASC personnel also faced arrests. The Final Price On 16th October 2019, after two years of fighting this battle, Col Dev took to Twitter to share that he has finally received his dues. However, he also shared that this victory has come at a cost of his promotion to the rank of Brigadier. Pleasantly surprised today morning for having received my ENTITLED RATIONS at last, after more than two yrs of its illegal stoppage ! However, one cannot forget the injustice meted to me for raising my voice against the illegal stoppage of ENTITLED RATIONS.... — Mukul (@Warrior_Mukul) October 16, 2019 The verdict came after Rajnath Singh assumed office as the Defence Minister, earlier this year. However, Col Dev was issued a Displeasure by the authorities in 2018, right ahead of his promotion to the rank of Brigadier - which obviously prevented him from being empanelled for promotion. Yet, despite his lost promotion, Col Mukul Dev is happy to get what is rightly his, and his fellow officers are hailing his selfless move of fighting for others despite the threats to his own career. In ours with Spineless average people at the helm of brilliant Organizations. They forget how they reached their top slots! Sad! Col Mukul is an upright and brilliant Officer-a gem in the muddy waters. — Indian Air Warrior (@amulkapoor) October 17, 2019 Sadly, that's how things also work in some cases in the Army. @Warrior_Mukul doesn't deserve this. He has had the moral courage to stand up to the wrong being done to the larger military immunity which is sadly missing in our top brass these days. Hope the right corners wake up. — Col Lalitesh P Singh (@DotonTarget) October 17, 2019
  7. 'Sustainability' is pretty much the buzzword on everyone's lips this year, thanks to Greta Thunberg, and her burgeoning army of supporters the world over. And with Diwali, the most polluting of all Indian festivals coming up right 'round the corner, the Government just promised to limit crackers to the green variety, and we figured we'd do our bit too. We decided to lay off those crackers (yes, even the green kinds 'cos smoke is smoke), and went a step further and decided to go sustainable 100% this Diwali. Do read on, for we should all really step up to the plate, and each play our parts to save mother Earth. __ECOMLOOKS__26__ __ECOMLOOKS__27__ __ECOMLOOKS__28__ __ECOMLOOKS__29__
  8. With the serious spike in entertaining at home in 2019, more and more people are exploring new and innovative ways to outshine each other when it comes to throwing fun soirees. And, with Diwali kickstarting the wave of festivities, we could think of no one better than the fun, young Brand Ambassador of Glenfiddich India, Angad Singh Gandhi, to give us the lowdown on the best way to do cocktails DIY-style this festive season. __ECOMPRODUCT__247__ No surprises to hear him say that homegrown gin brands will continue their meteoric rise on the popularity charts, and single malts will be the way to go for those who love their whisky. And, when it comes to presentation, the glass you pour it out in will make all the difference, and according to Gandhi, Highball glasses are where it's at this year. Zero-Waste Cocktails With the world going down the sustainable route, zero-waste bars are shaking up the scene the world over. According to Gandhi, everything from citrus rinds that can be used as garnish to beetroot juice squeezed out of leftovers from your salads (and mixed with lime and honey) can go into your drinks. Minimising waste of every kind, and doing our bit to not distress nature is the way to go this festive season, and the next he says. How To Make A Ginger Beet Martini - Leftover beetroot as per the amount you need - 1 medium apple cored and peeled - A small piece of freshly peeled and sliced ginger - 30 ml vodka - 5 ml ginger syrup - 5 ml freshly squeezed lime juice Blend the beetroot, apple and ginger with about a 2/3rd cup of water until it turns into smoothie consistency. Sieve it well, and add more water and mix it well until it turns into a juice. Add about 5 ml of the beetroot juice, and 30 ml of vodka and a dash of lemon juice, and mix well in a cocktail shaker. Pour out into a chilled martini glass and garnish it with a lemon rind. Buh-Bye Sugar Close on the heels of sustainable comes the organic and healthy. Sugar syrups are being struck off ingredient lists at the hottest bars, and Gandhi's favourite DIY replacement is of course honey, and he also loves to experiment with different easy-to-make homemade elixirs. He uses everything from elderflowers to hibiscus, lemon zest, strawberries, chocolate, coffee, clove and star anise, and either just adds a few drops of the elixir when making a drink, or simply pre-infuses his alcohol with the ingredient so it soaks up all the flavour. How To Make A Vanilla Vodka - 1 Vanilla pod - 700 ml Vodka of your choice Cut the vanilla pod sideways, and release the beans and add to a glass jar, and pour in the vodka, and allow it to infuse for a week or two, before you strain it out into a bottle. Coconut People Coconut as a flavour is going to be a big winner this season, says Gandhi. No longer limited to just coconut-flavoured Malibu, or OTT Tiki-themed cocktails, the fruit has played subtle muse to many a bartender the world over this year - both as a supplement for sugar, and for the mild sweetness it adds as a flavour. Simply add the coconut water to a drink, or mix coconut milk in a shaker with the other ingredients. How To Make A Coconut Ginger Margarita - 10 ml Cointreau - 10 ml Tequila - 5 ml fresh lime juice - 5 ml coconut water - 5-7 sliced ginger coins Throw in all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker, give it a good shake, and strain over ice in a glass. Garnish with lime or candied ginger. Mixology is no computer science, and with a little research and the right tools, you can master the art of making a mean cocktail or drink yourself. Or, if you don't want to spend all night playing bartender, you can simply pre-make a bowl of punch, or a flavoured cocktail and serve it in a big bowl or glass canister.
  9. Ever since smartphones are a thing, digital music players have seen quite a big fall in sales and demand. While simple MP3 players don't make sense today for audiophiles, using a digital music player is not a far fetched idea. If a music player can offer awesome sound quality and a range of features, it may just impress old skool music player lovers. FiiO is one of those brands that offers quality, high-resolution music players. Not all smartphones support Hi-Res audio and many are removing the headphone jack that pisses off audiophiles like me. I've mentioned in the past why Bluetooth earphones are no match for an analogue experience and you can read all of the reasons here. The FiiO M6 is actually quite similar to smartphones when you look at its design. It has an aluminium alloy body and 3.5D glass with a touchscreen at the front. It runs on an older version of Android which is more than enough for listening to music. It is quite small in size which means it is perfect to carry around in your pocket and backpacks. If you are afraid of scratching your player, it comes with a silicone case in the box that keeps it safe. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When it comes to music players, the first concern is always storage. "How much music can you store and can you expand the storage?” are the first few questions that arise. You will be happy to know that the FiiO M6 comes with 2GB of internal storage to get you started and can be expanded via the micro-SD up to 2TB. You can potentially store your entire library in this little player. © FiiO Having said that, if you are the kind who also streams music, you can also take advantage of the M6's Wifi streaming capability. You can stream music from apps like Spotify and Apple Music via AirPlay. If you like to listen to music wirelessly, you can also pair your favourite Bluetooth earphones. Apart from using these features, you can also control the music player's functions with your Android smartphone using the FiiO link app. The FiiO M6 can also double up as an independent DAC (digital to analogue converter) for your Windows or Mac computer. The FiiO M6 also has great battery backup as it can last 13 hours on a single charge. It takes around 2 hours to get it fully charged and you can always extend your playback session with a power bank when travelling. When it comes to the sound quality, we would recommend you use the 1More Triple Driver earphones as it offers support for Hi-Res audio and delivers an awesome listening experience. The soundstage feels layered, multidimensional and wider at the same time. The sound is way crisper than anything you will experience from smartphones and the DAC chips convert the audio well when connected to a computer. The Fiio M6 also has support for apt-X HD, aptX, SBC, and LDAC codecs and can run all of these formats: ISO, DFF, DSF, APE, WAV, FLAC, AIF, AIFF, M4A, WMA, OGG, AAC, ALAC, MP3, DSD. The Final Say If you are a true audiophile and still want to experience good sound, the M6 is probably your best bet. You can always get the M9, but it is probably an expensive option to consider. You can use it to stream music from your favourite service or use it as a DAC for your computer. It is by far the most affordable sound upgrade for users who are looking for a simple music player that can deliver great sound fidelity as well.
  10. Can you recall your life as a 10-year-old trotting around the house? Remember how we lived without a care in the world and how our to-do list comprised of just four things - eating, sleeping, playing and a bit of studying - day in and day out, with a want for nothing in our young lives? We had a rather comfortable life, a house filled with toys, a bunch of friends to play catch with, a loving family and all our needs taken care of without having to utter a word. © Getty Images But 10-year-old Siddharth Dhage from Mukundwadi, Aurangabad in Maharashtra was not born with such good fortune. Maharashtra is currently facing one of the worst drought situations the city has seen in the recent past, and Siddharth is bearing the brunt of the consequent acute water crisis in his hometown. © Getty Images Siddharth is a resident of a housing unit located in Nirmala Devi Nagar which houses 300 families, but the water supply in the area is basically non-existent. Like many others in his locality, Siddharth travels long distances to fetch cans of water that would aid his family's daily survival. Travelling close to 14 km daily, class 2 student Siddharth, with his two other companions, 12-year-old Ayesha and her younger sister 9-year-old Sakshi, board the train plying between Aurangabad-Hyderabad to fetch water from the taps of the railway station in Aurangabad. © BCCL Siddharth leaves his home at noon every day to board the Aurangabad-Hyderabad train from the Mukundwadi railway station. He then gets down at the Aurangabad City Junction to fill his cans with water from the railway taps installed along the railway lines. He boards the train back home and reaches home late in the evening after almost six hours of to and fro. © BCCL From waiting under a tree for the train to hopping on to it within minutes of its arrival with the heavy, water-filled cans and making a 14 km pilgrimage on a daily basis, the 10-year-old is the living example of what mindless wastage of water can do to the less privileged and impact the future we are trying to build for the next generation. © BCCL Let's take pity on the reality of so many of our countrymen and do our bit to preserve water, and bring this grave situation to the authorities' attention and push them into action. All of us deserve easy and free access to clean drinking water.
  11. One of this year's greatest hits, 'Gully Boy' was more than just an entertainment flick. Starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt as the lead pair, the film touched a million hearts through its narration of the journey and struggles of street rappers in Mumbai. But, if there was another thing that caught people's attention in the film, it was Ranveer's sensational performance as a rapper. The track 'Apna Time Aayega' from the film became an anthem of sorts, that not only united underground rappers from across the country, but even those who enjoy and appreciate the art. © Excel Entertainment Given the popularity and the reach of the song, multiple organisations have given the song their own spin in order to send out a number of messages to the public. Most recently, a Delhi traffic cop adapted the famous rap to deliver a message about respecting traffic rules. Check out the awesomeness here: Such a cool cop ..@Nitisha_Kashyap pic.twitter.com/L70pfPHGGP — pallavi ghosh (@_pallavighosh) June 18, 2019 But that isn't even the best part. What's insanely awesome is the way the cop has scripted the lyrics and delivered the rap at a single go with so much finesse, and we can't help but admire this talented man! What a creative way of sending the message across, when you can't help but hear it all out.

  13. When it comes to Bollywood's 'Sultan' Salman Khan, everything needs to be larger than life, and away from the mainstream. But when you begin to wonder how that can be incorporated in every aspect of his life, Sallu Bhai will show you just how that can be done. Let's take for instance that one constant that has been a part of Salman's life throughout these years. That has to be his love for fitness and bodybuilding, right? And as if that's not all, every now and then Salman keeps giving us a glimpse of his fitness regimen which is nothing less than motivating. © Twitter Hours ago, Salman shared another such video which is motivating us to get onto the path of fitness. Donning his fitness gear and recorded in his gym, the video takes “leg day” to new heights. Check out this super cool video that Salman shared on his official Instagram feed and you will know what we mean. View this post on Instagram After experiencing the highs and lows my security has finally realised how secure they are wid me .. ha ha A post shared by Salman Khan (@beingsalmankhan) on Jun 17, 2019 at 10:33am PDT As you can see, for his leg workout, Salman can be seen lifting two of his heavyweight bodyguards instead of regular weights. If that isn't turning the beast mode on, we wonder what is! Salman captioned the video saying, “After experiencing the highs and lows my security has finally realised how secure they are wid me .. ha ha” © Facebook Not sure about his security personnel, but we are sure as hell impressed with Salman's strength. Let's take this video as all the inspiration we need to get on with our new year's resolution and get fit and ripped at the gym.
  14. To whoever needs to hear this today, you're doing okay. You'll be fine. You will survive. This isn't a story about that prodigy in school who could solve calculus at the age of 10. This is neither about that boy who fought against all odds to become successful. This isn't about the over-achievers. It's about the rest of us. The rest of us who struggle every day with comparisons and self-doubt. Ankush Bahuguna TED Talk Our societal conditioning forces us to believe that there's only one way to live life – to run the race, race past everyone else and be the most successful person this world has ever known. I've hated myself for most of my life for not being able to keep up with constant competition with my peers, for not meeting the unrealistic standards I set for myself. But the last few months have been different. I've slowly come to terms with the fact that my idea of success may be different from the rest of the world and how comparing my journey to someone else's is unnecessary mental stress. That's why when DAV College, Chandigarh invited me to give a TEDx talk, I just knew what I was going to talk about. Because I know, there are many more people out there, who constantly struggle with the idea of ambition and competition just like me. People who may need reassurance that I never got in my formative years. Give this a watch. Even if it helps a handful of you to see your future in a new light, I'd consider this talk successful. Now, don't misunderstand me when I say being average is absolutely alright. I don't mean to deride hard work and hustle. That's all that has got me where I am. What I would definitely say is that it is okay for people to not be the best and more importantly, to not have aspirations to be the best at what they do. We decide what we make of our lives and it's alright if it's not monumental. The one important thing to remember, I'd say, is to be financially independent. Don't take decisions that you think are right, take decisions you really believe in. Everything else will fall into place, eventually.
  15. E3 gaming expo got over this week and many new upcoming games were announced for consoles and PC. Some of the biggest conferences included games that piqued everyone's interest and we got to see some gameplay or teaser from publishers and studios. Some of these games won't be out until next year while some are about to launch in a few months. We are not going to include annual titles like FIFA and Madden because these games tend to remain the same with minor updates. Here are the best coolest games that were announced or showed off at E3 this year: 1. Cyberpunk 2077 (PS4,Xbox One, PC) - April 2020 Last year, we got to check out some exclusive gameplay behind closed doors and this year, we got to see some more footage of the upcoming gaming by CD Project Red. What was cool about this revelation was that we got to see a character being played by Keanu Reeves. The game is set in a dystopian future where humans can upgrade their bodies with augmentations. Being a CD Projekt Red game, we can expect some killer plots and RPG mechanics that we've been familiar with from the Witcher series. The expectation for this game is very high and we hope the developers can deliver. 2. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order' (PS4, Xbox One, PC) - November 2019 EA has not come out with a single-player story-driven game every since the company switched its strategy to live service titles. However, this we got to see Respawn Entertainment's “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order” gameplay that blew us away from the start. You will play as one of the last remaining Jedis after the Empire has taken over the galaxy. The gameplay footage showed us what we can do in the game i.e. weird lightsabers, use force powers to defeat enemies and interact with the environment, and go on an adventure with your own cute little droid. 3. 'Watch Dogs: Legion' (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Google Stadia) - March 2020 Watch Dogs is coming back in the form of 'Watch Dogs: Legion' that will be set in post-Brexit London. The city is under a paramilitary organisation called 'Albion' after the fall of the Government and it is up to you to take on the authority. As a part of a rebellious group called DedSec, you will be playing as multiple characters to take on Albion with gadgets, hacking and good old shooting. The coolest part about this game is that you can play as any character you want in the city. You can play as a master assassin, a gifted hacker or even as an old lady. Ubisoft says that you will be able to recruit anyone and the cutscenes in the game will adjust according to who you are playing as. We highly recommend you check out the gameplay footage above to know more about this game. 4. 'Ghostwire: Tokyo' The game was showcased at Bethesda's E3 conference and was met with good reception at the expo and on Twitter. The game is basically a scary, action-adventure game where citizens of Tokyo are disappearing for some odd reason. Your job is to find out why and that's all we got to see from this teaser trailer. From the makers of “The Evil Within,” you really should check out what they have in store for us. 5. Doom Eternal (PS4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia - November 2020 A brand new Doom game is coming for fans next year where the forces of Hell have begun to invade Earth, and the Doom Slayer arrives to repel the demons. It is the fifth main title in the Doom series and put heavy emphasis on "push-forward" combat. Creative director Hugo Martin has stated there will be twice as many demon types in this game and we can't wait to get our hands on it. Check out the gameplay footage above if you can handle it.
  16. Parenting ain't no easy job, especially when you have to raise an extremely demanding tech-savvy generation like today.

Luckily, we're here to help you out. There are a ton of things you could get your tech-savvy dad, and we've compiled a list of latest options for you. These gadgets are among our favourites and very utilitarian: 1. Google Home Mini: © Google The Google Home Mini has a lot of uses, but it's also one of our favourite white noise machines. Just have him say "Hey Google, play rain sounds" or "white noise" or "fan sounds." There's a whole list of relaxing sounds any Google Assistant speaker can make. Digital assistants have gotten extremely smart and with a habit, you can tune them exactly as you want. In the long run, they indeed help you organise daily tasks and voice commands eliminate quite a few manual interactions. Lastly, the Mini is a classic speaker. Feeling even more generous? Bundle along a yearly YouTube Music subscription for him! From Flipkart 2. Fitbit Versa Lite: © YouTube If you thought a weighing machine was a good idea for your dad, then perhaps a fitness tracker makes even more sense.

It has up to five days of battery life, elegant design, punchy display, and an accurate Fitbit OS tracking system. With the heart rate scanner, ensure you stay healthy every step of the day. Lastly, it can run some nifty apps that are helpful on the go and it doesn't cost as much as an Apple Watch. From Amazon.in 3. Amazon Kindle Paperwhite: © YouTube The design has remained unchanged for years and that's because it's perfect as it is. Rather than a trendy glass built delicate gadget, the Kindle is an evergreen option for those who love to read. With month-long battery life, there's no stopping. The new Kindle Paperwhite offers something crucial in this day and age: a break from our smartphones, laptops, and TVs. After a hectic day of work, you want to be away from a screen.

Sony WH-1000XM3: © Sony The Sony WH1000XM3 headphones have been hailed over the past few months as having the best noise-cancellation out there. But the headphones don't stop at offering great noise cancellation -- they also sound absolutely awesome, offering great low-end, well-tuned mids, and a ton of detail in the high-end. The Bluetooth enabled earphones supports LDAC that allows one to enjoy high-resolution audio than conventional earphones. If you're in the middle of an intense music session when you suddenly you need to talk to someone around you, placing your hand on the housing will turn down the volume automatically! Oh, and it has 30 hours of battery life. From Amazon.in 5. Mi Air Purifier 2S: © Xiaomi The Air Purifier 2S packs a dose of smarts you don't see in most competitors, such as Wi-fi connectivity and remote management from the Mi Home app. The fan never stops spinning unless you power the device down and Xiaomi says, the custom-made motor draws a mere 4.8 watts in normal operation. The addition of a small OLED display makes operations very convenient. Air pollution in India is here to stay for a long time, about time we start considering its long term effects and prepare accordingly. From Amazon.in 6. Fossil Sport Smartwatch: © YouTube The Fitbit is built with health and fitness as its primary selling point, the Fossil, on the other hand, is a fashion accessory. Sure, it has all the required health features like heart rate scanning, Google Fit, and even untethered GPS. But, it goes a step forward with its design and customizability options. It's compatible with Android and iOS as well as fit all 22mm straps. You can also customize the dial to match your mood or personalize select watch faces with your favourite Facebook or Instagram photos. From Amazon.in
  17. The World Cup fever has gripped the entire planet at the moment, but ahead of the much-awaited India vs Pakistan match scheduled for 16th June, the fervour and craziness in the air is at its peak, because like always, this is a highly-anticipated match, which will be watched by everyone, irrespective of their loyalties. So, ahead of this match, a Pakistani TV commercial has been going viral for all the wrong reasons. The advertisement shows a look-alike of IAF pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, who was in Pakistani captivity , wearing the colors of the Indian team jersey. This is the our hero's personality, no one can remain untouched. But next time plz use some good actors. Btw #ShikharDhawan exclusion must be a relief for many competitors #CWC19 #abhinandan pic.twitter.com/mrBFLFLh2d — Megha Jainð®ð³ (@i_meghajain) June 11, 2019 While Indians have mocked fans across the border with the 'Mauka Mauka' ad, a lot of angry Indian fans feel this was below the belt and not in good taste at all. This is shameful. Please just let this be a cricket match. This is beyond just simple banter. #CWC19#INDvPAK https://t.co/shsUrYpCHl — Ritayan Basu | à¦à¦¤à¦¾à§à¦¨ বসৠ(@ritayanbasu) June 11, 2019 Abhinandan's Capture Mocked in Racist #Pakistani Ad For World Cup Clash Against #India. This is how #racism, #nationalism and #sports combines to produce toxic outcomes. Entirely unnecessary. #CWC2019 #crickethttps://t.co/7gcMx2CxjI — Swati Parashar (@swatipash) June 11, 2019 Some people from Pakistan are actually quite in support of this advertisement, and feel there is obviously nothing wrong with it. Abhinandan again ð¤£âï¸ That's an interesting idea about Pakistan-India match in @cricketworldcup being played on 16th June ð #PakvsIndia #Abhinandan #CWC19 #IndiavsPak pic.twitter.com/W3EzxJfYdn — Danyal Gilani (@DanyalGilani) June 11, 2019 However, someone was quick enough to state some facts to stomp all over this uncalled celebration of this mockery. The advertisement is an epic fail because Pak hasn't won a single match against us in the World Cup and the whole #Abhinandan incident was a win for us as well, seeing how he was returned to us safely. Think thoroughly before you try to start a banter, Pak. #EpicFail #CWC19 https://t.co/CHgsJOOFLz — Rahul Mishra (@RahulDKMishra) June 11, 2019 The main question is, how far can you go when it comes to national pride? Is dragging a national and a sensitive issue really important when it comes to making a point? These guys have their hearts filled with hate. #Pakistan stooping to a new low#abhinandan https://t.co/X1KpCfKeFO — SnehalRajani (@Snehal_Rajani) June 11, 2019 Our soldiers are way above a mere, crass advertisement and mockery of this kind not only belittles an individual, but is also a joke on the sacrifices made by the brave soldiers of a country.
  18. Shorts are one piece of clothing that men of all ages must have in their closets. No matter what the occasion, they can be a part of the ultimate outfit, no matter what sort of a fashion statement you are trying to make. And, if like Varun Dhawan, you have the physique and the legs to rock them, even better. Take notes, guys... 1. Dress According To Your Strengths © Instagram/varundvn Just look at him and tell us you don't envy that. You can't, can you? Varun, in these white ripped denims and white and blue trainers, goes on to show how you can flaunt your legs, as well as your washboard abs by dressing right. On a side note, who would've thought wearing denims to a gym would actually work? Kudos Varun, way to go! 2. Loose Fits Are Dope © Instagram/varundvn A loose-fitting pair is the key to a super hip look. Pair it with an oversized jersey, and matching trainers, and you have the ultimate athleisure trifecta. And if you can add on a sports cap or a beanie, well, that's the cherry on top of an ultra-hip athleisure sundae. Just make sure that the pieces you pair are loose-fitting, not overtly oversized. That just does not look good. 3. Consider Your Colours © Instagram/varundvn As awesome as Varun looks with his pet, his outfit simply takes the cake here. Pairing a denim jacket and pair of coloured shorts worked wonders for him. Add to that, the fact that his sneakers happen to match the primary colours of his outfit. That was just a masterstroke. We seriously suggest that you go for something like this for your next casual outing with your gang of bros. 4. Khaki Shorts Can be Funky © Viral Bhayani Earthy tones and hues do not necessarily have to be all sober and uncool. Case in point would be this distressed khaki shorts, that Dhawan pairs with a black suede jacket and flip flops. Looks perfect for a lazy evening spent around, or a casual dinner with your gang. What's more, because this look is rather simple and subtle, you can always add an element or two to funk things up a bit. Like Dhawan's flip flops. 5. Prints Are Fun © Viral Bhayani The pair of shorts that Varun wore to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's birthday bash was a class apart, along with the way that he combined his outfit. A maroon shirt with embroidered and printed flowers, with a white denim shorts, with abstract print stains? Count us in. A rather cool and artsy look, the sombreness of the outfit gets offset thanks to the ragged edge of the short and the blue NHL cap.
  19. Air Force One is undoubtedly one of the most popular planes on the planet. It's responsible for carrying the President of The United States and is a symbol of the country's might. Thanks to multiple Hollywood films and documentaries, the aircraft is globally recognised and a treat for aviation geeks. Though there's another plane that follows the Air Force One, and it's actually a lot cooler. Often dubbed as the "Doomsday Plane", it is America's secretive jet designed to survive a nuclear war. In the event of Armageddon, it'll the U.S. Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other top personalities alive whilst the president would be on board the Air Force One. © USAF Technically called the E-4B, it's a modified version of the Boeing 747-200 and officially called the National Airborne Operation Centers. The design of the plane is meant to survive an electromagnetic pulse with all the systems left intact. Currently, there are four planes in the fleet and always available on standby to shadow the Air Force One. © Aiirsoure Military / YouTube Nuclear explosions emit a strong electromagnetic pulse that can severely damage electronic circuits (computer chips), hence the E-4B additionally uses traditional analogue flight instruments to navigate. In operation since the 1970s, these aircraft have been considered to be the best chance for a Cold War president to survive a nuclear attack. © USAF The plane isn't designed to offer comfort and focus has been on utility. They can carry dozens of military analysts, strategists and communication aids to enable a working government from the sky. Another special feature includes a five-mile-long trailing wire antenna that would ensure that the president could remain in contact with the nuclear submarine fleet even after ground-based communications had been destroyed. Based out of Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska, the planes are always ready to fly at a moments notice. According to aviation forums, one aircraft is usually airborne every 12 hours, with another one ready for departure with a 5-minute notice. © US Government Boeing stopped making the 747-200 long back and the U.S Government has been planning to phase out the Air Force One (VC-25A). Even the E-4B needs a replacement soon because the airframe has been used extensively and older spare parts are harder to find for regular maintenance. Fun Fact: You can fly this plane in GTA V via a mod!
  20. Yes, we know plastic is big 'No No' and a bigger issue than anything else right now. While the landfills are cluttered with heaps of plastic and cows are ingesting it and falling sick every day, we have to think of more probable solutions to reuse and recycle plastic, so that it doesn't assemble in places and cause more danger to our surroundings. But, even now, we fight with shop keepers to give us bags to carry our stuff in, and more often than not, the bags are obviously plastic! © Pinterest Canada, for that very reason, has developed a smart and funny way to get rid of this problem once and for all. While it's advisable to bring your own cloth bags for shopping, most people don't really bother with that and end up demanding plastic bags at most superstores. But this one superstore in Vancouver outdid most people who asked for plastic bags and we wish someone did the same here in India as well. We all know we need to cut down our use on plastic, but sometimes, we need a little nudge in the right direction, and here's what Canada is doing. The people who want to use plastic bags from the Independent Grocery store in East West Market, will get plastic bags with some really embarrassing things written on them, so the world can see what their plastic bag says while they carry it home! It's hilarious yet so important! © Pinterest The plastic bags say things like 'Into The Weird Adult Video Emporium' and 'The Colon Care Co-op', making it impossible for shoppers to carry around these plastic bags and opt for reusable bags instead or maybe carry their own shopping bags from home! "The message is, we should make a conscious effort to save our planet one step at a time, [Plastic bags] are a big problem, and every step helps." -David Lee Kwen, the owner of East West Market told an international publication. © Pinterest © Pinterest It's time we start campaigning against the use of plastic bags, because clearly there is an issue with the immense plastic usage in most cities and we will sooner than later pay the price for that. For now, let's hope someone catches on to this funny message and adopts something similar in most consumer stores around cities, so that consumers are compelled to use reusable plastic bags or something more sustainable.
  21. Owing to a violent partition, the prevailing Kashmir conflict, political and cross-border tensions, India and Pakistan, over the years, have developed a complex and largely hostile relationship. Their topsy-turvy relations have also given birth to one of the most extreme and intense sports rivalries in the world, making their duels in the sporting arena much more than just ordinary contests. The current scenario is no different. The recent cross-border strikes eradicated any hope of resuming the bilateral ties between the two countries. And, the sporting bodies of both India and Pakistan are now completely governed by the political stands of their respective governments. Ahead of the ongoing ICC World Cup in England & Wales, there were calls by some Indian political leaders and cricket pundits to boycott Pakistan at the mega event. But, luckily for the cricket fans, the calls for boycott subsided and the much-anticipated clash between India and Pakistan will go as planned on 15th June. © Reuters In a more recent case, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has sought permission from the government to host the Pakistani women's cricket team for a One-Day International (ODI) series this year. Now, given the current mood in the country, the decision to host Pakistan at home is expected to leave many baffled and disappointed, especially after what the nation endured earlier this year. The chorus of keeping politics and sports aside has been doing the rounds over the years. And, it does make sense. For the countries who can't seem to see eye-to-eye, what better way to mend tarnished relations than using cricket, a sport that grips the populations of the two countries, as a platform to bring people together. Now, while that might seem a little far-fetched at the moment, the latest plea of the Indian cricket board is more on the lines of safeguarding the interest of its women's cricket team, than going against the mood of the nation. © Reuters The BCCI is seeking the government's approval to host the Pakistani cricket team for an ODI series as a part of International Cricket Council's Women's Championship - a tournament that will determine India's qualification for the Women's World Cup in 2021. The ICC conducts the Women's Championship where teams need to play each other on a home and away basis. The points system of this tournament further determines the ranking of the teams to qualify for the World Cup. The likes of Australia, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lanka will be playing the ICC Women's Championship - a tournament that involves home and away tours over a span of two-and-a-half-years. The top four teams and hosts New Zealand will qualify directly for the ICC Women's World Cup in 2021. The remaining three teams will have fight for their World Cup spot in the Qualifier in 2020. © Reuters The Indian cricket board faces a tough challenge in getting the nod due to the prevailing political tensions between India and Pakistan which has prevented any bilateral series between the men's teams for six years now. In a letter sent to the sports ministry, BCCI general manager (cricket operations) Saba Karim explained the Indian cricket board's situation. "As per the schedule of the event, BCCI is to host Pakistan women's team for at least three ODIs in India between July and November. BCCI would like to seek necessary permission from the government for India before giving its consent to ICC on this subject," the letter, accessed by TOI, read. It remains to be seen whether India will have to forfeit points if the series is not cleared by the government, or the BCCI will host Pakistan at a neutral venue like UAE. But, if the government approves the bilateral series, it will not only help the Indian women's cricket team to stay in contention for a coveted tournament like the World Cup, but will also help in bridging the ever-increasing gap between the two neighbouring countries - a vital opportunity to kill two birds with a single stone.
  22. E3 is just a day away and we have already seen some major announcements from Google, and blockbuster games like 'Watch Dogs 3: Legion' have been confirmed. However, there's more to the biggest gaming event in the world, as we can expect new hardware, new games and everything else related to gaming to be announced. So, here are some of our predictions for E3 2019: 1. Next-Gen Xbox Console © Microsoft Microsoft is the only console manufacturers to be attending E3 this year and we can expect the company to capitalise on this opportunity. Microsoft has already shared some information about the next console dubbed “Project Scarlett” and we can expect some big news. Although it is quite possible that Microsoft will not show us the console but the company may detail specifications and some of its features. Microsoft will also announce a new Xbox game pass for PC gamers and we expect to hear from Microsoft about the subscription service's pricing and game collection details. 2. Halo Infinite, Gears 5 & A New Forza Title © 343 Industries Microsoft is looking to showcase some of its first-party games and we can expect to see a demo of 'Halo Infinite', 'Gears of War 5' and a new 'Forza' title. We can also expect these game to come as a package as a part of the Xbox game pass for PC. Microsoft acquired several new game studios last year including 'The Initiative', 'Undead Labs', 'Playground Games', 'Ninja Theory' and 'Compulsion Games'. We can expect some sort of revelation of games these studios have been working on in the past year. 3. Marvel's Avengers Game & Final Fantasy Remake VII Remake © Sqaure Enix Square Enix is attending E3 this year and thanks to a tweet posted by the company, we know that Marvel's 'Avengers' will be shown off at the conference this year. We can also expect to see more of 'Final Fantasy VII Remake' as it was showcased in Sony's latest State of Play Event. The game is being developed by Crystal Dynamic 4. Watch Dogs 3: Legion & Beyond Good And Evil 2 © Ubisoft Ubisoft has been cracking-out some great games in the past year and we can expect to see some never before seen games. The company already announced a new Ghost Recon game via a teaser trailer, however, there are other games that will be showcased. Ubisoft has now confirmed that it will be showing 'Watch Dogs 3: Legion' that takes place in London, United Kingdom. We can also expect to see some gameplay for 'Beyond Good' and 'Evil 2' as the company has been teasing that game for a while. As of now, there is no word whether Ubisoft will show a new Splinter Cell game as it looks highly unlikely. Beyond the two new games, Ubisoft is rumoured to showcase three to four AAA titles but we can't be entirely sure about that for now. 5. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Dragon Age 4 And FIFA 20 © Respawn Entertainment EA kicks off the E3 conference with their EA Play tomorrow at 9:45 PM IST and we can expect to see some gameplay footage for the new Star Wars game. The game was revealed at 'Star Wars Celebration' earlier this year and we are bound to see more than just a trailer. EA will also announce FIFA 20 and what all it brings to the table in terms of new features and gameplay. We can also expect to see more about Madden, NHL and NBA Live franchises. EA also debuted a teaser trailer for 'Dragon Age 4' at last years The Game Awards and even though it seems unlikely, we can expect some more information about the game that is currently in development.
  23. Pulling off the colour, white may seem a little tricky. However, if you really want to position yourself as a true fashion icon, it is also a colour that you must have in your closet. If you think you have been wearing white the right way, think again. Here are a few tips you should keep when you go shopping: 1. The Classic © Getty Images Nothing works as great as the classic, white shirt with blue jeans. No, seriously, you CANNOT go wrong with this. It does not matter what your body type is, or what the occasion, this combo is simple, sweet and epic. Also, not to mention, really easy to assemble. Just take care of your footwear and check if it compliments your belt, and you are good to go. 2. Plain And Simple © Instagram A plain white tee is something that every guy has to have in his closet. Extremely versatile, and really easy to carry, just ensuring that you have the right size is more than enough. Pair it with a pair of jeans, or a slim fitting pair of chinos and voila! You are good to go. Alternatively, shirts with minimal printed designs work well too. 3. Playing With Forms and Styles © Instagram The thing with white is that you can actually play around with materials, cuts, designs and whatnot, without going horribly wrong. Sure, there may be moments when your choices may seem a little out of place, but as long as you are not wearing white on white without the physique to pull it off, you will be just fine. 4. White Denims © Getty Images Although this may seem a little weird for some guys, going for a white pair of denims, or a white denim jacket can work wonders for your closet and personal style statement. You can pair light coloured shirts such as cream or off white, with a pair of jeans. If you have a white denim jacket, try pairing it with a darker shade, as that is a better look. Again, no matter what, do not go for a complete, white-on-white outfit. 5. Contrast © Instagram In case you have not been able to spot a trend here, contrasting your outfit is always a good idea. Actually, that is a rule of thumb for any situation when you are confused as to what should you wear. Plus, it also allows for your individual pieces to stand out, no matter how simple and plain they may seem.
  24. While the Indian cricket team is set to finally make their ICC World Cup 2019 debut against Faf du Plessis' Team South Africa at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground in Hampshire the news of an alternate jersey for Virat Kohli's boys is making rounds in the cricketing world. "For televised ICC events all participating teams will be required to provide for two different coloured kits, except for the host country who has a preference in the choice of colour and may, if it chooses to do so, provide only one coloured kit to be worn in all matches throughout the event. In advance of the event the teams will be notified which coloured kit will be worn in each match," the ICC had said in a release. In essence, during the Cricket World Cup 2019, the hosts ie; Eoin Morgan's Team England have the luxury to play in their traditional 1992 World Cup throwback jersey which is light blue in colour. The Men in Blue, ironically enough, will be wearing their alternate jersey which is being speculated to be orange with dark blue designs all over. Abiding by this new rule made by the ICC, countries such as Bangladesh and South Africa have already released their second kit: Who else is excited about the World Cup ? :) pic.twitter.com/PyiBKPHRud — Tamim Iqbal Khan (@TamimOfficial28) May 25, 2019 Team India however have managed to maintain a sense of suspense about their new look. "The BCCI marketing team is still working on the design and the jersey will be unveiled very soon," a BCCI source told PTI. Having said that, IANS has released a tentative design for the new look that India might wear against their match against the World Cup hosts on 30th June 2019. Credit: IANS And while people are presuming this orange jersey to be Team India's 'away kit', IANS quoted a source saying: "There has been a lot of talks and speculation and people have been calling it an away jersey. But it isn't. It is an alternate jersey that the team will wear when they play England on June 30. As per the new rules, the hosts get to retain their jersey colour when they play an ICC event. Since India also have a blue jersey like England, there is a slight change in colour.” Ever since 1992, Team India has been known to don blue jerseys in the shorter formats of the game with slight modifications being made to the uniform every year ever since. Sure, blue is one of the more popular colours in the sporting fraternity but the Bleed Blue squad has established a sense of ownership to the colour with their brilliance on a cricketing field. Watching them play in a different shade will surely be an uncanny experience but hey, change is always good, right?
  25. Last night, Apple announced a bunch of new features for the upcoming iOS 13 update and it will be available for users by this fall. Some features bring stability and performance improvements. While there are general improvements, Apple has also added new features and a brand new dark mode. If you've been wondering what all Apple announced last night, here's our comprehensive list for the smartphone. A Faster FaceID Apple announced that the facial recognition process from the TrueDepth camera will be 30% faster than what we are used to right now. The faster unlocking will help users get into their smartphones without having to wait for FaceID to recognise your face. The process is already fast enough but with the 30% improvement, it could really change the way we would unlock iPhones. Dark Mode © Apple A dark mode for iPhone is one the most sought after features and Apple finally made it a reality last night. The iPhone's interface will change into darker tones and will also translate to system-wide apps and third-party apps who enable the feature. The new dark mode comes with added benefits such as better battery life and the fact that it would put less strain on your eyes. Sign In With Apple © Apple Apple has made it easier for customers to now protect themselves with a new “Sign in with Apple” feature. You will no longer have to use Facebook or Google sign in which can be later used to track your activity. Apple wants to protect users by providing a developer with a random unique ID. Users will also have the option to keep their identities a secret and share relevant information with the application. Apple has also integrated FaceID and Touch ID for this feature as an additional layer of security. More Photo Editing Tools © Apple Apple is now going to make it easier to manage and edit images on iOS 13 thanks to machine learning. The Photos app will be able to highlight the best images, automatically remove duplicate images or screenshots and will intelligently organise your library.
