  1. 'Iron Man' actor Robert Downey Jr. played the role of a scientist for the past 11 years. But recently while speaking at Amazon's Re:Mars conference at Las Vegas, he literally convinced us that he's becoming 'Tony Stark' in real life by launching a new initiative to clean the world. During his gag-filled talk that somehow weaved together the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, RDJ announced the launch of a new initiative called Footprint Coalition to clean up our planet. © Reuters “Between robotics and nanotechnology, we could clean up the planet significantly, if not totally, in 10 years”, Downey Jr. said. So yes, he's going to use robots (hopefully they look like Iron Man) and nanotechnology to clean the Earth and reverse its carbon footprint in a decade. He didn't share any details on how the organization plans to achieve its goal. However, he did say that even a small dent could be the most important thing he had ever done. The official website of Footprint Coalition also went live soon after his announcement, but we can only see a signup form for their newsletter as of now. Downey Jr's talk during the keynote was particularly interesting because he discussed artificial intelligence, MCU, the evolution of Tony Stark and his own career too. He also talked about the past that landed him incarcerated on drug charges until he cleaned up in rehab treatment. “Quick disclaimer, I don't pretend to understand the complexities we face as a species, just because I portrayed a genius in my professional life. My scholastic achievement peaked at a correctional finishing”, he said. © Marvel The 20-plus minute announcement during the keynote also featured Amazon's Alexa and Matt Daemon, who joined via video. This, by the way, isn't the first time Downey Jr. has taken AI and advanced technology to do something for the world. Together with his wife Susan Downey, he is also producing a docu-series for YouTube, exploring AI and the impact it will have on people's lives.
  2. She is one of the most talented actresses in both Hollywood and Bollywood. The winner of Miss World 2000. The winner of Padma Shri and Filmfare Awards. She is the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. A successful film producer and singer. Co-founder and co-owner of the hashtag 'J Sisters'. And if her dreams come true, then maybe future Prime Minister of India. © Instagram Yes, you read it right. Priyanka Chopra has political dreams and ambitions and she shared her views with The Sunday Times. Reportedly, Priyanka Chopra who left Salman Khan's 'Bharat', now wants to become Prime Minister of Bharat, we mean India. Don't blame us, guys! I just couldn't stop myself from making this pun. © Instagram In fact, our beloved 'Desi Girl' wants the nation's 'Jiju' Nick Jonas to run for US Presidency as well. She said, "I would love to run for prime minister of India. I would love Nick to run for president. I don't like the things associated with politics, but I know that both of us really want to make a change. Never say never." In the same interview, she praised Nick and said "He's not afraid to use the word (feminist) and I love that." © Twitter Well if Priyanka Chopra contests in the elections, we don't think there's anyone who will vote against her. We wonder what PM Modi will say after reading this.
  3. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today announced his proposal on making bus and metro services free for women in Delhi. This plan, if implemented, will cost the government around Rs 700-800 crore in a year. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal: On all DTC buses, cluster buses and metro trains women will be allowed to travel free of cost so that they have a safe travel experience and can access modes of transport which they were not able to, due to high prices. pic.twitter.com/KVqEWDIJAS — ANI (@ANI) June 3, 2019 The AAP chief further explained that this scheme is being put in place but not being imposed on anyone and that women are free to pay for the ticket if they want. The reactions to his announcement have been splashing all over the internet and, of course, the men of this city have a lot of thoughts. Arvind Kejriwal announces free travel for only WOMEN on all DTC buses, cluster buses and metro trains. Meanwhile Delhi men : pic.twitter.com/4bKqM05O0Z — Tweeterað¦ (@DoctorrSays) June 3, 2019 Have you heard this? Is imposition of #FreeRideForWomen in Delhi a gettable task? His handle says "सब à¤à¤¨à¥à¤¸à¤¾à¤¨ à¤à¤ बराबर हà¥à¥¤" But in reality this insane showcases Gender Inequality while PM Modi schemes Nari Shakti for making women equally skilled like men. Shame!#DelhiMetro pic.twitter.com/ywUHz985Vn — Santh Kumar (@santhgogikar) June 3, 2019 Delhi Men - All set for Metro ride. #DelhiMetro pic.twitter.com/l36Mqm2JxP — Kamlesh Dixit ð®ð³ (@kash2312) June 3, 2019 The most obvious question that arises from this proposal is the lack of equality, a feeling that resonates with everyone right now wondering why a gender bias has been put in place here. And Equality goes for the toss... A girl carrying an iPhone, Gucchi bag, posh clothes will travel for free and a handicap will make his efforts to buy tickets and stand in a metro while the girl is chilling and sitting on the chair #DelhiMetro — Sidharth Dash (@Sidharth_dash) June 3, 2019 According to Delhi CM @ArvindKejriwal: "Safety of Women is inversely proportional to Travel Cost in #DelhiMetro and Buses" ðððð — Vivek Jaiswal (@vivekjaiswal_93) June 3, 2019 If you feel everyone are equal, so why are you divide humanity in gender.

Instead of this they should do something for the safety, of the women, which is in danger in the capital. Best example of vote bank politics.ðð #DelhiMetro — Shraddha singh (@shraddha_singh7) June 3, 2019 @AAP will crush #DelhiMetro eventually....just for votes.#Freebies hinders development. Metro needs money to function to maintain itself. I'm perfectly capable to pay for it and I'll. https://t.co/I0CnFF1Hke — Ankita Singh (@DelhiteAnkita) June 2, 2019 With all due respect, women in Delhi didn't ask for a free pass to ride when they voted for Kejriwal ji, they had voted for the safe environment promised to them. https://t.co/5AtSuFKFzt — Priyanka Chaturvedi (@priyankac19) June 3, 2019 Stop being so regressive @arvindkejriwal. While Women can afford their tickets, what they require is safety. Only exemption made should be for the economically weaker sections without the gender discrimination. #DelhiMetro — Geetika Swami (@SwamiGeetika) June 3, 2019 the AAP government feels that this move is a step and an investment towards women safety, but the majority of the population in Delhi, including the women, refuse to agree. While his intentions might be well, one cannot help but also agree with the people that the women of this city need safety first, not free metro rides.
  4. 2019 has been one heck of a year for ByteDance, the operator of the popular video app TikTok. The app saw tremendous growth over the last few months and even got banned for a couple of weeks in India before getting back online. Now, if a new report is something to go by, then it looks like ByteDance is planning to launch its own smartphone too. Yes, you read that right, the TikTok owner is said to be working on a new smartphone to step into the hardware realm. © Reuters According to the Financial Times, two of their sources have reportedly confirmed that ByteDance is readying its own smartphone that will, of course, ship with ByteDance's app pre-installed. The fact the ByteDance's new phone will ship with its own app isn't all that surprising. In fact, that appears to be the primary reason behind the company's decision of making its own smartphone. One way of getting people to use your apps and services is by making phone makers pre-install the apps, so users can start using them out of the box. Well, TikTok being TikTok, it appears as though no phone makers are ready to pre-install it or even other ByteDance apps for that matter. © Reuters The report noted that ByteDance CEO Zhang Yiming has “long dreamt” of building a smartphone full of preloaded apps. And it's been confirmed that the company has even signed a deal with Smartisan earlier this year to start building the phone. There's still a lot that we don't know about this TikTok phone. We don't know what it would be called, what it'll look like, etc. But if ByteDance ends up making this phone, then it's guaranteed to come pre-installed with ByteDance's apps like TikTok, Lark, Feiliao, etc. Will it worth checking out? Well, if you're a TikTok fan, then maybe yes. But if not, then only time will tell how good or atrocious this phone will be.
  5. Remember Payal Rohatgi, the social media sensation? Well, I hope you detected the sarcasm in that very statement. But why am I talking about her? That's because she's back again, to indulge in some mindless banter, to irk the proletariats in the worst way possible. It's just her visible affinity to waste time over Twitter and other forms of social media, and this time around, she's outdone herself again. © Twitter Recently, over a Tweet, the 'damsel in distress' spoke about the age-old practice of Sati and called Raja Ram Mohan Roy a traitor. And now, she demands a so-called 'Hindu' nation. Twitter is, of course, furious over her lopsided thought process, but we can't help and substantiate a good amount of humour through her thread. Truth Behind Sati Pratha in India https://t.co/x1vn5l6Xcy via @YouTube #Jauhar was an incident related to Padmavati during Mughal Khiljis invasion. Later society with d help of traitors like Raja Ram who Britishers used 2 divide society made Sati into an evil forceful practiceð — PAYAL ROHATGI & Team -BHAKTS of BHAGWAN RAM (@Payal_Rohatgi) 26 May 2019 So, as we all know, Raja Ram Mohan Roy was a social reformer, known for his efforts to abolish the practice of Sati and child marriage. But after Payal tweeted a video on the Sati tradition named 'the truth behind Sati Pratha', she called Ram Mohan Roy a traitor , saying "#Jauhar was an incident related to Padmavati [movie] during Mughal Khiljis invasion. Later society, with the help of traitors like Raja Ram, who Britishers used to divide society, made Sati into an evil forceful practice. (sic)" She also called him a 'chamcha', saying the Britishers used him to 'defame the Sati Tradition' © Twitter Her Tweet said: "No he was a chamcha to Britishers who used him to defame the Sati tradition. Sati tradition was not compulsory but was introduced to prevent the prostitution of Hindu wives by the hands of Mughal invaders. It was the woman's choice. #FeministsofIndia Sati was not regressive." No he was a chamcha to Britishers who used him to defame the Sati tradition. Sati tradition was not compulsory but was introduced to prevent the prostitution of Hindu wives by the hands of Mughal invaders. It was the woman's choice. #FeministsofIndia Sati was not regressive ð https://t.co/sALLK2lALF — PAYAL ROHATGI & Team -BHAKTS of BHAGWAN RAM (@Payal_Rohatgi) 25 May 2019 Not only did her Tweets rile her followers and other people, it created havoc on Twitter, because let's face it, extremist views seldom make it out alive, but because we're a democracy, of course, she has the will and freedom to say whatever she wants, honestly. But of course, Twiteratti will not let this one go! Behan, bas kar de yaar. https://t.co/vcqXTRtjrm — Abhishek BaxiابھÛØ´ÛÚ© ‏‎‎ à¤à¤­à¤¿à¤·à¥à¤ (@baxiabhishek) 26 May 2019 I think you are mixing jauhar with Sati system.

India didn't require lessons on Science. Heard about DRDO, ISRO and their missions ? How India producea cheapest pharmaceuticals? India owns fastest supersonic missile in form of Brahmos. — भारत नरà¥à¤¶ (@ResoluteAction) 26 May 2019 Holy smokes! Where did this one come from? Raja Ram Mohan Roy, the great reformist, is now a “chamcha” of the British! Wonderful. Here come new India's historians. https://t.co/ToBeE68Hme — Pritish Nandy (@PritishNandy) 26 May 2019 The practise was never a norm and was never prevalent ...it was there practised by certain jaati groups(caste is a wrong word) and not by all ...it was already dying the time british entered ...this thing is taught to beat the hindu side rather unfairly — Aryaveer (@Aryavee83533418) 26 May 2019 Jauhar and Saka never happened when Rajput fought with any Hindu king as even after defeating the enemy king, women and children were given due respect. Jauhar happened only when Rajputs fought with Mughals or Afghans, as when Mughals defeat them, they treated women like animals. — भारत नरà¥à¤¶ (@ResoluteAction) 26 May 2019 In response to this outpour, India's darling stated that she was not trying to glorify Sati Pratha, while raising the issue of Triple Talaaq. "I am not glorifying it, I am putting across the history of its origin. It was due to Mughal invaders that #Sati started in the 1st place. Understand your history. And yes no one is practising it NOW nor am I asking anyone to practice it. But #TripleTalaq is still ON. (sic)" - Payal Rohatgi on Twitter. Apart from her two cents on the custom of Sati, Payal also went ahead to demand a 'Hindu' nation! हम हिनà¥à¤¦à¥ à¤à¥ भॠà¤à¤ दà¥à¤¶ à¤à¤¾à¤¹à¤¿à¤ à¤à¤¿à¤¸à¥ हम à¤à¤ªà¤¨à¤¾ दà¥à¤¶ à¤à¤¹ सà¤à¥à¥¤à¤ªà¥à¤°à¥ विशà¥à¤µ मà¥à¤ à¤à¤ भॠदà¥à¤¶#HinduNation नहà¥à¤ हà¥à¥¤à¤¹à¤° दà¥à¤¶ मà¥à¤ हम #minority हà¥à¤ à¤à¤° à¤à¥à¤ भॠदà¥à¤¶ भारत à¤à¥ हिनà¥à¤¦à¥ सà¤à¤¸à¥à¤à¥à¤¤à¤¿ à¤à¥ नहà¥à¤ समà¤à¤¸à¤à¤¤à¤¾ as #Hinduism à¤à¤¾ origin हिà¤à¤¦à¥à¤¸à¥à¤¤à¤¾à¤¨ मà¥à¤ तॠहà¥à¤à¥¤ So secular हà¥à¤à¤° भॠभारत #HinduRashtra हॠसà¤à¤¤à¤¾ हॠð pic.twitter.com/Rat6OADT7X — PAYAL ROHATGI & Team -BHAKTS of BHAGWAN RAM (@Payal_Rohatgi) 26 May 2019 Okay, basically, what she's trying to say is even if India's a secular country, it should predominantly be a Hindu nation (really?) because only Hindus are entitled to a sense of belonging here. While ranting, she also chose to say Muslims aren't a minority anymore and it's unfair to call them that!

While secularism is the right way to embrace our nation's ideology, we do have people amidst us who scorn it on a mere whim, failing to understand the concept of a secular democracy.
  6. The Indian cricket team is surely one of the leading contenders for the ICC World Cup 2019 with a great roster, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had a tough time limiting to a 15-man squad just because of the kind of talent that was available at their disposal. While the selectors had to drop great players like Rishabh Pant and Ambati Rayudu, who, any other team would give anything to have, here's a list of five key players who would lead to the success of the Men in Blue this World Cup: 1. Virat Kohli © Reuters Even if Virat Kohli was not the leader of the squad, he would have been India's most valuable asset. After having the greatest year cricket in 2018, the batsman in Kohli continues to stay atop ICC World rankings in Test and ODI formats of the game. Having featured in 227 ODIs in the Indian kit, the skipper has already scored 10,843 runs and has a batting average of 54 in England, where the World Cup will take place. 2019 has been kind to the cricketer who notched 3 centuries in 11 matches this year. 2. MS Dhoni © Reuters Considered as the incognito captain of the team, Dhoni's skills as a middle-order batsman and still, a top-notch wicket-keeper give Team India the edge they need to become the world champs. Having played under pressure in and World Cup final and winning the trophy with a bang only adds to his already impressive resume. In 341 ODI matches throughout his career, Dhoni has scored 10,500 runs till date. Despite a nagging back injury, Dhoni took his IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings to the final while scoring 314 runs in 10 matches. In 2019, Dhoni has played 8 innings in which he has put up a total of 327 runs. 3. Jasprit Bumrah © Reuters The bowling attack of Team India will be spearheaded by 25-year-old Jasprit Bumrah who has been in tremendous form for the whole of 2018 and 2019 which not only helped his side restrict their opponents to small totals but also provided the pacer with the top rank in ICC World rankings in ODIs. Bumrah has played in 49 ODI games in his professional cricketing career and collated 85 wickets, 28 of which came in 2018 alone, with an impressive economy rate of 4.51. 4. Hardik Pandya © Reuters Hardik Pandya is a classic example of hard work paying off. Ever since making his ODI debut against New Zealand in 2016, he has quickly become an integral part of the national cricket squad as a talented all-rounder and is extremely useful as a death over bowler and a middle order batsman. In 45 one-dayers played by the all-rounder in the Bleed Blue jersey, Pandya has scored 731 runs with a scary strike rate of 116.59 while also scalping 44 wickets at a 5.54 rate of economy. 5. Kuldeep Yadav © Reuters Kuldeep Yadav just had an abysmal season of the Indian Premier League with Kolkata Knight Riders and was benched midway through the month and a half long event for the same. Nonetheless, the Chinaman has enough tricks up his sleeves to stun opponents with the ball and might as well be that x-factor of the team. In 44 ODIs, Yadav has already dismissed 87 batsmen off the crease at the economy rate of 4.94, which is extraordinary for a spinner. In 2019, while the lefty has been a little more expensive than his career average, he has taken 20 wickets ahead of the World Cup.
  7. They say dreaming, and dreaming big, is our only way of moving towards a future that none of us have seen, but all of us have certain hopes for. There wouldn't be a single individual who hasn't ever thought about their future in a certain way, but it is also true that most of us fail to pursue that dreamy future, and put in the work that would turn it into a reality. But, like most things in our world, there are two types of people who must be taken into consideration even here. Because, what about those who put in all their sweat and blood to breathe fire to their dreams? They always deserve a special mention, don't they? © Jagran Jharkhand girl Manali Gupta happens to be one such young woman who inspired a million hearts with her most recent achievement. Manali is the Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC) topper of class 12th Arts examinations held earlier this year. Manali scored an impressive 437 marks out of 500 in her finals. According to reports, she obtained 75 in English, 89 in Hindi, 90 in History, 92 in Geography and 91 in Economics, which makes it an aggregate of 87.4%. Awesome right? But wait until you learn her complete story. © Bharat Khabar Manali, who aims to serve her country by becoming an IAS officer in the future, is a daughter of daily wage electrician. Which means her father gets money only on the days he gets work. Can we imagine living and pursuing our dreams under similar circumstances, when even the chances of the next meal is uncertain on days? Yet, Manali persevered and worked hard day and night to get a step closer to her dreams, despite all the odds. “Since early age, I have a dream to become an IAS. This is why I took Arts after completion of matriculation,” Manali told the media. © Hindustan As for her next step, Manali plans to study her favourite subject Geography for graduation. Even with the many challenges that continue to look her in the face, Manali remembers to thank her parents for the success, “My parents laboured hard for my education. I would also like to give credit of my success to my teachers in school, as it was not possible without them.” Manali's school principal, Pramod Prakash Singh told the media that people in Patratu have lots of hope from her. He further added that despite belonging to a poor family, she continued her education and has set an example in the society.
  8. Alright, if you think you've seen all the crazy PUBG Mobile addiction stories, then just wait till you hear this one. Ready for it? So, a 19-year-old woman from Ahmedabad wants to leave her husband to go live with, wait for it, her new-found PUBG gaming partner. She started playing PUBG a few months ago and got hooked to the game. There's nothing wrong with gaming, but this woman is seriously addicted. She called up 181 Abhayam women helpline seeking help to get a divorce. Falguni Patel, a coordinator at Abhayam said, “The girl called 181 and told us that she wants to be at a women's observation home as it is not working out with her husband nor she wanted to go to her parents' home as they had taken away her cell phone”. But when she was told that she won't be allowed to use her mobile phone inside the home, she dropped the idea. Later, during a counselling session, she revealed that she wanted to move in with her gaming buddy who she met in-game while playing PUBG. Apparently, Counsellor Sonal Sagathiya advised the woman to reconsider her decision. She was told that this 'man', who she met online, wasn't predictable and she was also advised to give her extreme step a thought as she had a baby to take care of. © PUBG Obviously, as a helpline, the Abhayam counselors didn't force a decision on the woman. They just advised her and gave her alternate options to consider. Well, we just hope she did the right thing and decided to stay back with her husband and take care of the kid. This kind of addiction isn't anything new, as people have literally gotten arrested and even lost their lives while playing this game. While the game developer Tencent is taking active measures to save kids from addiction, we think even adults need to keep their usage in check. Source - Indian Express
  9. We love Mahendra Singh Dhoni and if you have been a regular reader of our stories, you would have an idea about how much we love him. A lot. We love him a lot. However, in this new video that surfaced online, Mahi takes some time off his busy cricketing schedule to share his plans after taking retirement from the cricketing world, which a lot of us are speculating to be immediately after the ICC World Cup 2019. “I wanted to share a secret with all of you,” the former Indian captain said in the video footage. “Right from when I was a kid, I always wanted to become an artist.” “I decided I have played a lot of cricket and it is time for me to take up what I really wanted to become so I started getting into painting,” he added. As fans of whatever 'Captain Cool' says or does on the field, we are one hundred per cent behind Dhoni and wish all the success to his desire to turn painting into a career. Having said that, it is the next part of the video which makes us feel as if 'Thala' was trolling us. I like Dhoni's helicopter shot most. But his paintings are good too.#WhyDhoniWhy pic.twitter.com/SGyWBA4sYo — Tanya Mishra (@TanyaMisti) May 20, 2019 While Dhoni shows a couple of his paintings which include sketches of a landscape, the kind we used to make in kindergarten, another one with a “futuristic aeroplane” from the year 2050 and finally a stick-figure self-portrait in his Chennai Super Kings jersey. With the excitement of a 12-year-old, Dhoni continues to show one painting after another and it is the man's simplicity that wins our hearts every single time. If the Indian wicket-keeper is serious about whatever he said in the video, then we are expecting a brilliant art exhibition sometime in the future which would consist of every idea or emotion the cricketer wanted to express through colours and surely, it will be a sight for sore eyes. Dhoni also invites the “art community” to have a look at whatever he has created till date and is open to suggestions and advice with regards to helping him better his craft. Did we mention how much we love MS Dhoni?
  10. Aladdin's character has been pretty much famous among the 90s kids. When the news broke that it's coming back on the big screen, fans went gaga and wanted to see the popular singer Zayn Malik as the new Aladdin. But, Canadian actor Mena Massoud was roped in for the role. Now, the music video of 'A Whole New World' featuring Zayn Malik and Zhavia Ward is out and it's magical. In the video, you can see Zayn and Zhavia walk around New York City and painting the town red with love. Well, there's not even a single frame wherein you get to see the two of them together but it still will make you fall in love with the whole setting of the song. Fans had previously speculated that Zayn would team up with Selena Gomez for the track. Now, Twitter users are going berserk seeing Zayn and Zhavia together. Not just that, fans have actually expressed their desire of seeing Zayn as Aladdin. Take a look at the song: Check out the Twitter reactions here: As I will see Zayn from now...#ZaynMalik #AWholeNewWorld pic.twitter.com/L7FzHuxN1S — ðð ð¡ð¤.âð (@Roosezay28) May 9, 2019 AIN'T NOBODY GONNA BE BETTER ALADDIN THAN ZAYN i said what i said pic.twitter.com/DUhxkHYUra — MIEL STANS ZARRY ðð (@blastyIes_) May 9, 2019 zayn should've played aladdin no one can tell me otherwise pic.twitter.com/rnW3469W80 — Nuria (@nuriayoldi) May 9, 2019 Zayn is the only #Aladdin I know. pic.twitter.com/breCGoNQOg — Bo (@stupideBeau) May 9, 2019 So apparently Zayn has 2 songs and 2 videos for Aladdin, I could not be more looking forward to this soundtrack pic.twitter.com/VrkHdNAWLx — Báµ¢â (@zjmst4n) May 8, 2019 What do you think?

There are so many weird things happening every day, but Kal Penn wanting to actually be in the cult classic show 'Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah' was not something anyone could've ever expected. Yesterday, he shared a video of one of his characters, Ladies Bhai, an 'old, ridiculous Gujarati sketch character'. It's a pretty funny little sketch of him talking in Gujarati and explaining why he's called Ladies Bhai. Meet Ladies Bhai: an old, ridiculous Gujarati sketch character with a great shirt. pic.twitter.com/3KxT9joqUq — Kal Penn (@kalpenn) April 29, 2019 It obviously got a bunch of funny replies with people coming up with a Gujarati twist on Kal Penn's name.

  12. Samsung has flooded the market with some great mid-range and budget smartphones that give everything you could ask for in each segment. The Galaxy A70 is one of those smartphones that does everything you want from a smartphone. It has a bright screen, good cameras, respectable performance and a massive battery. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We've been using the smartphone for a while to test out all the bells and whistles and it's got some unique features. It's got a beautiful tall screen for people who love to watch videos, an in-display fingerprint sensor and a good camera system for Rs 28,990. Sure, the competition is hard in this price segment but the Galaxy A70 stands out for some reasons. Here are our findings of Samsung's new smartphone: Design & Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The first obvious thing you notice about the Galaxy A70 is its tall 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display. It's got Samsung's Infinity-U display i.e. it has a tiny water-drop notch design. The aspect ratio of the smartphone is also unique i.e. 21:9 and almost bezel-less. It has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels with 331ppi density and is one of the most beautiful displays we've seen on a smartphone that costs less than Rs 30,000. You can tweak the contrast levels and the colour accuracy according to your own liking. We switched the settings especially when we were watching something on Netflix or when gaming. The sheer size of the display is the real winner here. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The larger screen also means that the smartphone is considerably larger and even though it took us a while to get used to the phone, we never found it to be overwhelming. If you have small hands, you may face a slight issue but overall the ergonomics are on point. The design of the phone ensures that it fits perfectly in your palm. The back of the smartphone also has a prism-like effect when it catches light from different angles. It adds that unique bit to the design but still isn't as eye-catching as some Honor phones in the same price range. Cameras © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy A70 is outfitted with a triple camera setup where the primary setup is a 32-mp sensor and has an aperture of f/1.7. The secondary camera is a wide-angle 8MP sensor whereas the third sensor is the 5MP depth sensor. At the front, it comes with a 32-MP selfie shooter which would appeal to people who love to take selfies on a daily basis. The camera UI is quite similar to what we've seen on other One UI Samsung smartphones. You can switch between the wide-angle and the normal sensor with a single tap. It also comes with a portrait mode where you can adjust the level of blur before and after taking a picture. We found the portrait mode to be a bit of hit and miss feature as the blur effect was not quite accurate to other smartphones. The wide-angle lens works as advertised and takes in more information thanks to a field of view of 123-degree. Macro shots are also good in good light conditions but don't manage to do a good job in low-lit environments. In terms of videos, the unique feature here is the phone's capability of taking super slow motion video at 1080p@30/240fps. It can also take 4K videos at 30 frames per second but it does not have support for OIS. This could be disadvantageous for people who like to capture videos on the move as your hands need to be very stable. Here are our camera samples for your reference: Performance In order to be one of the top mid-range smartphones, it needs to perform like one as well. It comes with Qualcomm's 675 octa-core chipset running at 2GHz (two Kyro 460 cores) whereas the other cores are clocked at 1.7 GHz. It comes with an Adreno 612 GPU which is perfect for smartphone gamers. In fact, during our testing, we did not notice any frame drops while playing PUBG and could even run it smoothly on high settings. The smartphone also didn't overheat as much we expected to keep it nice and cool for extended gaming sessions. The chipset has been coupled with 6GB of RAM and which is more than enough for daily tasks and usage. Having said that, the smartphone would glitch out on us each time we would reboot the smartphone. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In terms of benchmark scores, the Galaxy A70 scored a respectable 2374 in the single-core test and a 6573 in the multi-core test. The smartphone in general performed as expected apart from a few hangups here and there. Overall, the performance was up to the mark and didn't cause major app crashes. Battery Life The 4,500 mAh battery is another marquee feature on the Galaxy A70 that makes it one the longest last smartphones of 2019. We used the device for watching shows on our private Plex server and even on Netflix. We gamed and used it for daily navigation on Google Maps. We got an average of 6 hours screen on time and overall the smartphone lasted 13.5 hours on a single charge. When you do drain your battery, the A70 comes with a 25W fast charger which can charge the smartphone from 7 to 100 per cent in a little over 2 hours. The Final Say The Galaxy A70 is an all-rounder smartphone that delivers almost everything you expect from a mid-range smartphone. It performs well and takes good pictures which are the primary reason for buying a smartphone. Having said that, the known issues can be ironed out with a future update such as better portrait mode and the unexpected lagging. The battery life and display quality is a perfect combination for people who love to watch videos on their smartphones. If you are looking to spend less than Rs 30,000; the Galaxy A70 is a strong contender.
  13. Salman Khan is gearing up for the Eid release of his much-awaited, blockbuster in the making, 'Bharat' and is currently busy shooting for his 'Dabangg 3'. However with everyone experimenting with the web-series genre, one wonders if 'Bhai' would ever consider this medium as his preferred choice of making content. Unlike Saif Ali Khan, who is doing a fantastic job with 'Sacred Games', Salman holds a very different perspective towards making and acting in a web series. In one of his recent interviews, he shared his views on why he doesn't want to work in one. “I don't like it. I mean, it's a damn good space but I don't like all that is being shown on the digital platforms.” Talking about censorship being a problem with the digital medium, he added, “In films, if there are three-four extra punches, it gets censored and we get an A certificate. We get a U/A certificate only when we cut some scenes but on the web, they show anything and everything. There is no censorship. There should be an appointed body that takes that call. My problem is that young kids are also watching it because everyone has access to a phone. So, that's not cool with me.” Salman is very happy with his choice of films and wants it to remain that way. Even though it's his personal choice, we kind of feel his reasoning is a bit absurd, as with the world switching to a 'Netflix and chill' mode, many major superstars are foraying into this world. But then again, he is 'Bhai' and can still pull a sizeable number of fans to the theatres, we guess.
  14. Bollywood's Rishi Kapoor is one of the most respected actors of the film industry and is loved by millions from all around the country. He is known for his versatility on the big screen and also the fact that he is the head of one of the most popular families of Indian cinema adds to his fame. Having said that, ever since Twitter fever took over us Indians, the legend has made a name for himself as the ultimate troll who does not back down from roasting the biggest names from any profession, field or area. The latest prey to Kapoor's comical expedition are the 15 of India's ace cricketers who have been selected to represent the nation at the upcoming 2019 ICC World Cup in England and Wales starting 30th May 2019. In an astute observation made by the actor, Kapoor took to Twitter to through out a question on the internet about the obsession with growing a beard or donning a stubble seen in the Men in Blue. To make his case stronger, the intrigued actor also shared a picture of what seems like a newspaper clipping showing the faces the Indian roster for the World Cup. Don't take this picture as a reference point but why do most of our cricket players sport full facial hair(beards)? All Samson's?(remember he had his strength in his hair) Surely they look smart and dashing without it. Just an observation! pic.twitter.com/QMLuQ0zikw — Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) April 16, 2019 “Don't take this picture as a reference point but why do most of our cricket players sport full facial hair(beards)? All Samson's?(remember he had his strength in his hair) Surely they look smart and dashing without it. Just an observation,” tweeted the actor. In his defence, other than the former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, literally every other member of the squad have a beard or at least a stubble on their faces and it does make a very good case for him. As expected, the tweet became viral and responses and reactions from all over the nation started to pour in: Pretty sure that negotiations with Gillette to sponsor the team mustn't have worked out — atul kasbekar (@atulkasbekar) April 16, 2019 'Wow, that clean shaven guy looks super manly'. Said no one ever. — Guv Bassi (@GurvinderBassi) April 16, 2019 Beard is like Kapoors in bollywood.. they are everywhere in Bollywood.. I am big fan of Ranbir Kapoor and Nitu Singh.. :D Hope you are doing well sir... Wishing you good health and recovery... — Neeraj Raiya (@neerajraiya) April 16, 2019 Personal choice I guess! Beards make a man look...er...manly—-that's my personal view — Live and let live (@realslimshadee) April 16, 2019 I know! What is this recent trend of beards and all the young men in the real world also following it! Wierd not bring able to see real FACES behind the hair! ð — Jyoti Kapur Das (@jkd18) April 16, 2019
  15. If this is your first time growing a beard and you don't know how to proceed from here, or you've had a couple of failed attempts in terms of growing a beard, you need to read below. Growing a beard is not tough if you do it the right way, and if you do it right, you can get a healthier, wholesome, softer and fuller beard. 1. Here's The Plan Do your research and figure out which beard styles flatter your face shape. If you have a long rectangular face structure, a narrow beard is not going to do you any good. While growing, make sure that extreme sides are soft so that you can mould it any which way that you want. You should always keep the crop flexible so that you can shape it whenever you want. 2. But You've Got To Be Patient © Getty Images Time is key. You can't be impatient if you're growing a beard, okay? The beard that you can possibly grow could be mighter than the one you can fathom. So, it's important to be patient and grow through the process. So the patches that you're worried about after a stubble will take a while to grow. So, you stay at it, you'll reap the benefits. We promise. 3. Shave The Sides Well You could either let the scruff grow or if you want to actually grow it out the way you want to you should take charge of the neck and cheek lines. Maintain them well by shaving them in a shape that you like. Rely on your intuition or take help of a professional in shaping them. 4 Take Supplements For The Beard © Getty Images Supplements can help grow your beard faster. Take hair supplements and dietary supplements that help in hair growth for a new crop that's softer and fuller. 5 Keep Trimming It's less about layering and more about shaping the beard. An awkward growth doesn't look good on the face. Think of it this way: you can't grow everything to equal length at the same time which where trimming comes into the picture. 6. Use A Conditioning Product © Getty Images A product like a beard conditioner and a hair oil help create growth that is soft and itch-free( for you and your partner). Massage any of them into your whiskers daily for maximum effect.
  16. While we're going to witness the end of an era soon, we're actually waiting with bated breath for the Game Of Thrones finale to hit our screens on the 14th of April 2019. It's true we've formed our true and personal association with every character and sometimes in our head, we think "what would Jon Snow do if he was in my place?" Well, maybe it's not that intense but it's true the characters have grown on us in some way or the other. © HBO While we take away the betrayals, the plot line, the relationships, the wars and what not, let's also soak in some girl power from the show. What I mean is, some fantastic women actors have played very relatable and beautiful roles in the series and if we don't mention them, then there's really no point in watching GoT at all. They're brave, independent, storytellers, who have their own reasons to pull off each and every action, through the dilemma they face. Does it ever make you wonder though, what if they were someone you'd want to date? © HBO The character sketches of the women in GoT all have powerful elements hidden away and I bet sometimes, apart from the physicality, you wish you had someone who could maybe cast spells or be an absolute kink in bed, or always aim big in life! So, here are 7 women from GoT every man wants to find in the real world because they're absolutely fascinating: (1) Daenerys Targaryen aka Khaleesi © HBO "When my dragons are grown, we will take back what was stolen from me and destroy those who wronged me" Dany, as she's popularly called by her family is an actually a storm born, whose stubborn nature gets her what she wills, most times. She's ruthless with her goals but gentle in her approach and shows empathy at the right places. She's the kinda queen who'd rule your heart while ruling the world, and you'd never tire from the adventures she takes you on. Besides, she'd have great control over dragons and she can save you in case your house catches fire. (2) Cersei Lannister © HBO "Tears aren't a woman's only weapon. The best one is between her legs" She's conniving and sharp and no one can challenge her scheme of things or even her brain for that matter. She's sharp and sometimes that gets the better of her, but if you do end up with someone like Cersei, know for sure she's born to be a mother and will protect your kids from any sort of evil that looms around them. Just don't egg her on to give you tears of Lys and end your life. Other than that, she'll definitely find a way to make anything you wish for, possible, as she's one of the strongest women in GoT. We all love strong women, don't we? (3) Melisandre © HBO "The night is dark and full of terrors, old man, but the fire burns them all away." The 'Red Priestess' is quite fascinating to be with. She has this deep seeded darkness that you have to dissect for your own good and trust me, once you do, she'll always resurrect you from the dead! The woman can cast spells, bring back someone from the dead and perform some highly kinky and dark magic voodoo in bed! Apart from that, she does have a brighter side to her once she realises the mistakes she has made and she'll go through any length to try and rectify those mistakes. So, if you do happen to meet someone dark and enchanting, keep her happy is all. (4) Yara Greyjoy © HBO "Anything with a c**k is easy to fool" Tough, righteous and an iron-willed woman, Yara isn't easily fooled and she'll probably need a man who can match up to her innate strength as a leader. Although she prefers the same ***, she's not at all averse to men who recognise women for who they really are. So, if you're looking for a strong independent woman who actually has a mind of her own and can single headedly direct the iron fleet, she's your woman! (5) Ellaria Sand © HBO "It's always changing, who we're supposed to love and who we're not. The only thing that stays the same is that we want who we want". This woman is full of raw passion and does what her heart desires. She loves passionately and will go to any lengths to protect her lover. Clever and tranquil, Ellaria is your favourite fantasy girl, you've always wished you had but couldn't find. She's not opposed to threesomes, open relationships or even orgies for that matter and she will never let go of you, once she's absolutely yours. Ugh, the world isn't full of Ellaria's anymore! (6) Missandei © HBO "All men fear death" Missandei is the prudish beauty you can easily get mesmerised by. You'll fall in love with her instantly because she's beautiful and she's very loyal. If a woman is loyal and wise, there is really nothing else you need now, do you? Hard working, dedicated and a loyalist, this woman will surely understand all your needs and wants and love you for whoever you are (like she loved the unsullied!) So, here are the 6 most eligible women in 'Game of Thrones who'd best suit your preference'. If you go about looking for these characteristics in women in your city, you may just find a mix and match of everything, as everyone has one unique character you can absolutely relate to. So, what're you waiting for? Go get her!
  17. An Indian student named Sainath Manikandan in Abu Dhabi has developed robots to help protect marine life and minimise human labour on farms. That's so cool, right? Sainath is a student at GEMS United Indian School and he has built not one, but two robots, which is quite impressive. He hopes his innovation would be implemented on a bigger scale in the UAE. @DianaAward #DianasLegacy We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Goumbook's Drop It Youth Ambassador, Sainath Manikandan, has been awarded The @DianaAward for his work as an environmentalist and is driving change in his community by campaigning. Congratulations Sainath!!! pic.twitter.com/P6BPvfozP7 — lalitha manikandan (@lallimanikandan) July 3, 2018 His first robot is called MBot Cleaner. It's essentially a Marine Robot Cleaner that helps preserve the marine environment. The other robot called AgriBot, as the name suggests, is an agriculture robot that will help reduce the labour of farmers who work in countries with high temperatures, like the UAE. According to him, the MBot is a prototype robot that can remove floating waste from surface water. “MBot is a prototype robot that can remove floating wastes from surface water. It is basically shaped like a boat and can be operated remotely with a radio control. It runs with two motors that help the boat move in the water," Manikandan said. © Twitter The robot's wheel and the third motor are fitted with popsicle sticks to help push waste from the water bodies into the storage basket. He also noted the robot can be powered by solar panels instead of batteries. The AgriBot, on the other hand, will help the farmers in hot countries like the UAE by performing elementary functions involved in farming, such as ploughing the field, sowing seeds, and covering the seeds with soil. “The robot is autonomous and provides the facility for the optional switching of the ploughing system when required,” he said. Manikandan said, “Recycling just one tonne of paper can save 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 380 gallons of oil, 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space and 4,000 kilowatts of energy.” Last year alone, Manikandan collected nearly 2,500 kgs of paper and 250 kgs of plastic.
  18. No, this is not a late April Fool's joke or a prank by Apple. According to a new patent filing submitted by Apple, future devices such as the iPhone and Apple Watches may have “smell recognition capabilities”. © MensXP The company has been trying to detect air pollution levels and other harmful particles with tiny sensors that could be embedded into future devices. The new patent also shows that Apple could use other multiple sensors that will be able to detect body odour, rotten food and maybe sugar levels. The patent is called “System and Methods for Environment Sensing” and it explains a system where sensors could be used with an “artificial intelligence engineer to recognize smells associated with certain chemicals.” The patent also shows how an ionic liquid sensor would be tuned to specific ranges and enclosed into an SoC. How Sensors Will Work? The system would have an in-built that will be able to raise temperatures on the ionic fluid in order to reverse any chemical reactions. Patents show that Apple is going to add the smelling technology to the Apple Watch and the iPhone. © YouTube Previous patents show that Apple wants to give owners of their devices to access air quality data. This would be highly useful especially in areas where pollution levels are off the roof. The previous patent by Apple shows that Apple wants to monitor the ozone, carbon monoxide and other harmful gases. © MensXP For diabetic patients, it would be awesome to detect blood sugar levels without the need for withdrawing blood. This would be a game changer for people who want to get rid of the tedious process. As for detecting body odour, that would help everyone from being embarrassed for sure. Being a patent, we cannot expect to see these sensors and features on a new iPhone anytime soon. In fact, there's a good chance we may never get to see it. Having said that, if this patent comes to fruition, we can all be excited about the future.
  19. Banning something like an app or a game isn't going to solve all the problems. In fact, when you're banning something, you're making it more popular. But can someone tell this to the governing bodies of this country? Because clearly, their approach is very different. After the whole PUBG fiasco, the Madurai bench of the Madras high court has issued an interim direction to the central government to prohibit downloading of Tik Tok app. © Reuters According to the court, the app contains pornographic and inappropriate content, and it's making children vulnerable to exposure to sexual predators. Ya, right! Tik Tok, for those of you who don't know, is a social video app owned by Beijing-based ByteDance Co. The app has over 1 billion downloads worldwide and was the fourth most-downloaded non-game app in 2018. So clearly, there are a ton of people using it, and in fact loving it. The platform is dominated by memes and videos of lip-sync, dance, and more. The petition to ban the app was filed by a Madurai-based senior lawyer-cum-social activist Muthu Kumar, citing pornography, cultural degradation, child abuse, suicides, etc. We haven't heard from the central government just yet though. Additionally, a division bench of Justice N Kirubakaran and Justice S S Sundar also issued directions to prohibit media from telecasting videos made with Tik Tok. A Tik Tok spokesperson who spoke to Reuters said the company is committed to abiding by local news and was awaiting a copy of the court's order to take appropriate action. © YouTube Again, as we mentioned earlier, banning an app or a game isn't an optimum solution. It's us, the users, who need to take up responsibility and be aware of the decisions we make regarding the content we choose to consume online.
  20. From Google Glass to Snapchat Spectacles, we've seen a lot of smartglasses in the past. But none of them managed to peak people's interest, mainly due to their appearance. I mean, who wants to be the guy/ girl wearing some weird glasses with cameras on them, right? Well, Huawei says that its new pair of smartglasses are different from the others. In fact, the company has partnered with eyewear maker Gentle Monster to develop a series of smart glasses in variously different frame designs. Yes, that's how you know that the company is onto something here. We got our first look at the product yesterday when the company also launched the new P30 series phones. The future is now! Together with Gentle Monster we have joined forces to take your wearable intelligence to the next level with #HUAWEI X GENTLE MONSTER EYEWEAR. pic.twitter.com/MrgO2esXK4 — Huawei Mobile (@HuaweiMobile) March 26, 2019 Looking at the short video that Huawei played during the presentation, the company's eyewear seems more like a Bluetooth headset than smartglasses. You can use them to make or receive calls, listen to audio from the phone, and more. They showed a man and a woman wearing the glasses and talking to a voice assistant to get information. Huawei's glasses don't even have things like the projection screen, camera, etc., which makes them look like any other normal pair of glasses. Besides talking about the eyewear's aesthetics and poking fun at Google Glass and Snapchat Spectacles, Huawei didn't share much about the device. The only thing we know so far is that these glasses are IP67 rated, which means they can be submerged in shallow water for a short time, they charge up wirelessly, and have NFC to connect with the Gentle Monster case that'll ship with the device. © Twitter Sadly, we don't even know how much these would cost, but I expect them to carry a hefty price tag when it arrives in July.
  21. MWC saw quite a few interesting and weird smartphones, however, the show was stolen by all the foldable smartphones that were announced. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fold at its Unpacked event, followed by a more practical foldable smartphone by Huawei called the 'Mate X'. As of now, foldable smartphones have been teased by various companies like Xiaomi, OPPO, LG, Motorola and others. Apple has considered making a foldable smartphone in the past and has also filed a patent that covers “Flexible Display Devices”, however, we have not seen anything from the Cupertino giant as of now. Even though Apple may just be the only manufacturer that has not flirted with a foldable prototype, it didn't stop Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak from wanting one. © LetsGoDigital Speaking to Bloomberg, Wozniak said that he really wants to get his hands on a foldable iPhone and wants Apple to be a leader in this segment of smartphones. “Apple has been a leader for quite a long time in a few areas such as Touch ID, (Face ID) and easy payment with the phone,” Wozniak said during the Bloomberg interview. “They're not the leader in areas like the folding phone, and that worries me because I really want a folding phone.” Apple is known to have surprises up its sleeve and we cannot be sure whether the company is already working on a foldable smartphone. Even though the Mate X and Galaxy Fold have been announced, the two smartphones are not yet ready for consumers. It's still quite expensive and is in the initial stage of development. Apple, on the other hand, is known to launch devices that just work and it may be too soon for the company to unveil its own foldable device. © LetsGoDigital Even if Apple does make a foldable iPhone, there's a good chance it may look like the image above. It's a render based on the patent filed by Apple and developed by LetsGoDigital. Do you want a foldable iPhone in the near future? Let us know in the comments. Source: Bloomberg
  22. We've already seen institutions banning PUBG (PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds) in the last few months, and now, another app is likely to join the list. Tamil Nadu's Information Technology Minister M. Manikandan made the news after he said he'll be asking the Central Government to ban the infamous video app TikTok. The minister was responding to a plea by lawmaker Thameemun Ansari. He claims that the younger generation is hooked onto the video-based social media network and is leading to cultural degeneration. He also pointed out that the platform spreads sexually explicit content by morphing innocent people's face. © Bytedance "We will take up the matter with Centre to take action (possibly banning it)," the IT Minister said, "the same way blue whale game was banned," indicating that the app could have fatal consequences among the youth if action isn't initiated. TikTok was previously famous as "Musically", a platform to create short videos. The app was acquired by Bytedance in 2017 and merged into a new app called TikTok. Users can create 15-second to 1-minute videos with background music or dialogues for lip-syncing. These short videos have received immense popularity in the last few years and according to research agencies, the app has a 39 per cent userbase from India. © Tech Advisor More than 500 million users are available worldwide and the app has been known for its poor privacy controls. There have been multiple incidents of many under-age children being spotted on the platform. In-app monitoring has been a crucial point of criticism as the content is often used to spread hate speech as well. India won't be the first country to ban the app though. In July 2018, Indonesia briefly banned the app in view of inappropriate content. Recently, the Chennai Police also busted a flesh trade racket that used morphed pictures of women, downloaded from the app to lure customers. © CNBC We reached out to TikTok and they said, "At TikTok, maintaining a safe and positive in-app environment is our priority. We have robust measures to protect users against misuse, including easy reporting mechanisms that enable users and law enforcement to report content that violates our terms of use and community guidelines. We are committed to respecting local laws and regulations, and in order to better coordinate with law enforcement agencies, we are also in the process of hiring a Chief Nodal Officer, based out of India." The company also partnered with Cyber Peace Foundation and announced #SafeHumSafeInternet initiative on Safer Internet Day (5 February). Though, it has been fairly visible that the company has done little to actually improve the platform from an abuse point of view.
  23. We've already heard a few stories about banning the insanely popular game PUBG. Last week, the Gujarat government forwarded a circular banning the game from educational institutions. The state's primary education department had issued a circular that directed primary schools to ensure that a ban has been implemented on PUBG. Now, 11-year-old Ahad has written to the Maharashtra Government to ban the game. In the letter, he said, "it promotes immoral conduct such as violence, murder, aggression, looting, gaming addiction and cyberbullying". The boy further wrote in the letter, "I will be compelled to seek appropriate legal [civil and criminal] proceeding as per law; naturally at your cost and consequences" if the game is not banned." The letter was sent to seven ministers, including Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Ravi Shankar Prasad (Ministry of Electronics and IT), and Vinod Tawde (Maharashtra Education Minister). When Ahad didn't receive a response from the public officials, he then decided to file a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Bombay High Court. © YouTube The Jammu and Kashmir Students Association has also asked the Governor of the state to ban the game immediately due to poor board exam results. PUBG Mobile has been very popular since launch and people are literally hooked onto it. There have also been cases when people got addicted to the game and turned to physical self-harm. We must keep in mind that these games are built for entertainment and not supposed to be taken so seriously. A recent report by the Quartz states that a PUBG fan spends more than 8 hours in a week on an average on the game. © YouTube More than 120 cases of PUBG addiction were registered at Services for Healthy Use of Technology (SHUT) clinic in National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS). Signs of addiction include deprivation of sleep, loss of real-life interests, drop in lecture attendance, and poor academic performances. While the game is fun to play, a major reason for the fan following is the fad around it. One reason why many Indians are playing the game is that “everyone's talking about it.” Source: India Today
  24. Elon Musk loves memes, who would've thought? He's full of surprises and everyone knows that. A couple of months ago, he asked people on Twitter to send him their dankest memes and everyone came through, well kinda. People took the opportunity to basically troll him and that was also fun. And, how can we forget Elon becoming one of the biggest memes of 2018 when he smoked a joint during a podcast. And now, finally, it looks like it's his turn to be the one roasting or just maybe reviewing memes. Yep, our favourite billionaire tweeted about wanting to host 'Meme Review', a show run by PewDie Pie. He took some help from his famous - or infamous? - flamethrower and tweeted this. Host meme review? pic.twitter.com/k2SFtIUh1k — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 27, 2019 A collab by Elon Musk and PewDiePie is something we never knew we wanted, but sure as hell need. Obviously, everyone is trying their best to make it happen. $5 — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 27, 2019 You drive a hard bargain, but … ok — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 27, 2019 Thank you for your contribution, Tesla is now the official car of the meme community. We will drive it with pride. — MrBeast (@MrBeastYT) January 27, 2019 See? Now, this is how you sell cars! Exactly. What a time to be alive! — Jacksepticeye (@Jack_Septic_Eye) January 28, 2019 But, the most important reply came from Pewds himself, of course. â dont shoot please host ð we need this! https://t.co/6l66JTw7Vq — ƿ૯ωá«É¿à«¯Æ¿É¿à«¯ (@pewdiepie) January 27, 2019 He even went as far as making a video reacting to this. Yes, we do need this. Elon Musk could single handedly save us from T-Series — Dr Grandayy (@grandayy) January 27, 2019 Make it happen. We're desperate. — daniel (@DanielSambar) January 27, 2019 We're in the best timeline. What a time to be alive. — TheFatRat (@ThisIsTheFatRat) January 28, 2019 Everyone's invested, literally. I will invest in Tesla stock if you do. — Joey (@TheAn1meMan) January 28, 2019 Please help. Dear Elon, Meme review will only take 10 minutes of your time. LWIAY will only ask for 5. An interview with Gloria Borger on PewNews 20. That is a total of 35 minutes of your undivided attention. Mars can wait. Global warming can wait. PewDiePie cant. Help your people. Thank you. — Jay Lit (@officialjaylit) January 27, 2019 The best timeline. It's easy to let the war, famine, and widespread sadness confuse us. But this post reminds us that we're in a blessed timeline — Michael Reeves (@michaelreeves08) January 27, 2019 Someone really needs to make this happen, we do need this collaboration in our lives.
