The Zephyrus G14 Is The Best Gaming Laptop We've Used This Year & It Sets A New Benchmark

When it comes to gaming laptops, it's hard to find the right balance between power and portability. The desktop replacement machines are usually huge and garish, making them really hard to recommend. But lately, we've been seeing some great options from the likes of ASUS, Dell, MSI, and more. ASUS has a great line up of ultra portable notebooks in their Zephyrus series. We've reviewed some of those Zephyrus notebooks in the past, but none of them were as refined as their new Zephyrus G14. This is ASUS' new notebook that's arrived in India today. I've been using the G14 as my primary machine for gaming for about two weeks now, and I've got quite a few things to say about it. So, let's get started. Design & Build Quality © MensXP/Karthik Iyer I really like the build quality too. It screams quality and feels really good while using. It's got this sleek retro vibe that I am thoroughly enjoying. You can also choose to spend a little more and get the version that comes with a dot-matrix lid on top which ASUS calls AniMe Matrix LED display.
It's totally customizable and can be used to show your style and identity. Even without the dot matrix lid, I think the design is super clean and minimal. I've come to hate obnoxious "gaming laptop looks" and this is a breath of fresh air. Overall, I think ASUS has done a phenomenal job when it comes to the design and build quality of this laptop. Good job, ASUS! DisplayWith the G14, you can choose between display options. If you're a content creator, then I suggest you go with the 1440p option because it's just a really good panel. But if you're a gamer, then you'd be better off with a 1080p 120Hz panel just for that high-refresh-rate. Either way, you're getting a really good 14-inch panel. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer Upon tweaking settings a bit, I was getting a stable 60fps on Red Dead Redemption 2 with great visuals. Shadow Of Tomb Raider was also giving me a solid 60fps throughout with max settings. I even played the new Death Stranding on this laptop and I was able to enjoy the solid gameplay without any lags or stutters while keeping the settings high.
Overall, I'd say that it was an enjoyable experience when it comes to gaming, but I think gamers should go with the 120Hz panel to get the most out of that RTX 2060 Max Q card. That being said, I do have to point out that the laptop gets quite hot while pushing it through its limits. I mean, I wasn't surprised by that because it's bound to happen when you throw everything into a chassis so small. It's not an immediate threat to the machine as you'll face any thermal throttling. But I'd keep that in mind and monitor how it performs in the long run. The fans can also get a bit loud under heavy load, so keep that in mind too. Keyboard & Trackpad © MensXP/Karthik Iyer 1x USB 3.2 Type-C with DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery
1x USB 3.2 Type-C 2x USB 3.2 Type-A 1x 3.5mm audio jack 1x Kensington Lock. It's indeed a bummer that the laptop lacks an ethernet port as I personally rely on that for competitive online gaming. The laptop supports WiFi 6 though.

6 Photos Of Naveen Kr Gowda AKA Yash That Prove He's A Style Icon We All Should Be Following

Whether you’re willing to acknowledge this or not, there are a few actors down south, from the Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, as well as Malayalam film industry, who are much more stylish than anyone we have in Bollywood. 
© Twitter/SuperStarYashFans Vijay Deverakonda, Rana Dagubatti, and Allu Arjun, are just a few.
However, when it comes to sheer fashion, perhaps no one comes close to the style icon that Yash has made of himself. Now, while he is primarily recognised as a grooming God and has an impeccable beard that most men would kill for, he is also one of the most dapper men out there. © Twitter/SuperStarYashFans Men should be following him on social media, if they want some serious and easy to replicate style goals. Here are 6 photos, which prove that.
© Twitter/SuperStarYashFans 1. Denim Jackets FTW © Twitter/SuperStarYashFans Denim jackets are just the coolest thing that you can have in your closet. Pair it wisely, and carefully, and you can create endless ensembles with just one piece. Like Yash, we suggest you go for some off-beat silhouettes.
2. Nothing Beats A Well Fitting Pin-Striped Suit © Facebook/TheOfficialYash By designing, they may look as if they come from the 1960s. But if you pull it off using the right silhouette and the right fit, they are timeless, and still look magnificent. We particularly like the way Yash has paired this with a basic white T-shirt.
3. Embroidered Kurtas Are Dope © Facebook/TheOfficialYash The next time you go for a kurta, how about jazzing it up with some panache? Go for a coloured one, and if possible try to go for one that has intricate embroidery. Plain kurtas, no matter what the shade or colour is very boring. Unless you can spruce things up with the silhouette.
4. Power Dressing Is Still A Thing © Facebook/TheOfficialYash Even though it may not be mentioned as often as it used to be a few years ago, Power Dressing is still very much a thing. Pick dark shades, for both you upper and lowers, but ensure that they contrast. Also, no matter what your body type, ensure that they fit well. Wear an outfit like this to an interview or a meeting, and you’re guaranteed to come out on top.
5. A Well Fitting Suit Is Blissful © Facebook/TheOfficialYash This is something that every guy just has to have in his closet. A well-fitting tailored suit, will always have its place in a man’s closet. Also, note how Yash has paired this with a pair of Louis Vuitton slip-ons, instead of oxfords, or brogues.
6. Street Wear Can Be Classy © Facebook/TheOfficialYash Streetwear doesn’t have to jerseys or sweats, they can be something as simple and classy as a basic t-shirt and a combative shacket. Note the rugged laced boots that Yash is wearing. This is a classic lesson on why thinking beyond sneakers in terms of footwear is sometimes a wise thing to do.

Samsung's New Galaxy Z Fold 2 Is Here & It's Got Everything We Want From A Foldable Phone

Alongside the new Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Samsung has also announced the new Galaxy Z Fold 2, the successor to the original Galaxy Fold. The new Galaxy Z Fold 2 looks like a really good upgrade, so let's check it out. This time around, Samsung has offered a bigger display upfront instead of the smaller one seen on the predecessor. It's a 6.2-inch display that looks super clean, making it look like a proper phone even when it's closed, allowing you to do more without unfolding the device. © Samsung But you might want to open up and check out the display inside because it's an impressive panel. We're looking at a 7.6-inch panel inside which supports up to 120Hz refresh rate. It also has a tiny punch-hole on the top instead of an ugly notch like the last phone.
Internally, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 865+ processor and comes with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. It packs a 4,500 mAh battery, but we'll have to see how long it'll last, given the fact that there are multiple displays to power. As for the optics, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 sports a triple-camera setup at the back which includes a 12MP sensor, a 64MP telephoto camera, and another 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera. On the front, that punch-hole includes a 10MP selfie camera and there's another 10MP selfie sensor on the cover display. © Samsung Pricing & AvailabilitySadly, Samsung didn't tell us how much it plans to charge for the Galaxy Z Folds 2 and when it'll be made available. So think of this just as an announcement. We expect Samsung to give us more details about the pricing and availability next month, which is also when we'll know if or when it'll come to the Indian market.

For The First Time Indian Army Deployed Female Soldiers Along LOC & Now There’s No Looking Back

Admit it, women are one of God’s strongest and most powerful creations. Why? Because they are simply the perfect amalgamation of strength, resolve, selflessness and deep compassion. Their resolute beliefs and the ability to put up a fight against every threat makes them invincible. That is also perhaps one of the major reasons why women make indomitable soldiers in the armed forces all over the globe. While many like to claim that women function based on their hearts and not their minds, they in fact make use of both on most occasions unlike popular belief.  © Twitter/YS_Sheoran And now the Indian Army has put a stamp on it too, because for the first time women soldiers have also been deployed along the Line of Control in Jammu & Kashmir on regular national security duty. This only reaffirms the fact that women are equally capable of putting up a tough fight in the face of danger and serve to protect their motherland just like their male counterparts.
According to reports, the deployed female soldiers are Assam Rifles recruits who are serving in the Indian Army on deputation and have been deployed at Sadhana Top. These 12 rifle women, accompanied by a female commanding officer from the Indian Army shall be on guard duty on the national border that goes towards the LoC. Incredible!

Indian Army Riflewomen deployed for the first time along LoC between #India and #Pakistan in Jammu & Kashmir.

Here are the brave women soldiers protecting us all!!#Girlpower!!pic.twitter.com/qVlb9Dx0rQ — Ashima Khosla (@khosla_ashima) August 3, 2020 Theirs is a key position given that it is close to Pakistan occupied Kashmir and is known for stray infiltration attempts by terrorists, apart from smuggling of narcotics, fake currency and weapons via Sadhana Pass in the area.  It is also being said that this crucial position is being held by female soldiers because there are around 40 villages in the areas near the Line of Control. Vehicles from these villages enter various parts of Kashmir via the Sadhana Pass.  © Twitter/official_dgar Now, given the presence of women in these vehicles, Indian Army was finding it difficult to check vehicles thoroughly and thus this all-women squad has taken on the serious job. 
This comes as a great move in empowering the women of our country, and we are pretty sure the next thing on the list will be to take up combat roles in the Armed Forces where female soldiers will fight their enemies side-by-side their male counterparts.  They're from Assam Rifles, now deployed in LoC.
Assam Rifles is a fine force. Have raised and commanded a Division as a Major General.
Now they show the way re women in combat — Lt Gen Satish Dua🇮🇳 (@TheSatishDua) August 4, 2020Wish you all the very best. You make India proud. — vijay wadhwani (@WWadhwani) August 4, 2020May the force be with you. — SC (@shankar35) August 4, 2020

PM Modi Changed Yogi Adityanath's Name And Now The 'Desh' Demands An 'Uttar'

Everyone has a slip of tongue moment, it happens, and then we think about it for at least seven and half years and cringe at ourselves. But today, we can take some comfort in the fact that our own prime minister has such moments, that too on national TV, so at least it's less embarrassing for us. As everyone obviously already knows, today there was a ceremony held at the site of the Ram Mandir to be built in Ayodhya and PM Modi was, of course, the special guest for it. While addressing the people, he accidentally changed UP CM Yogi Adityanath and called him Aditya Yoginath. Cue the second-hand embarrassment. Who's "Aditya YogiNath Ji" 🤣pic.twitter.com/L7Owgmj0FV — PANKAJ (@ViewsOfPankaj) August 5, 2020 The name 'Aditya Yoginath' was the top trend as soon as it happened, no surprises there. Can anyone guess what the most common joke that literally everyone has cracked?
"Yogiji loves changing names of places so much that even Modiji gave him a new name." No point for guessing because it was obvious. Hmm. When you are Famous For Changing Names,And Modiji Calls You "Aditya Yoginath" Instead of "Yogi AdityaNath" pic.twitter.com/OxLxJud5aP — HarAnuragBasuNahiHota (@Anu_rag_Singh_) August 5, 2020 Oops. Modi ji after saying Aditya YogiNath : pic.twitter.com/p3jdQdHbED — ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ ㅤ (@theesmaarkhan) August 5, 2020 The desh wants some uttars! But where is your mask PM Modi? Also, who is your new minister, Aditya Yoginath? pic.twitter.com/ADztSrkpxz — RealReport (@report_real) August 5, 2020 Wow. We thought he got issues pronouncing Donald and Leonardo.

But “Aditya Yoginath”

Aise kaun karta hai bhai. pic.twitter.com/76VtHYWIhg — Ar.Piyush Wakodikar (@piyush9392) August 5, 2020 Oh no. After saying Aditya Yoginath instead of Yogi Adityanath*

Meanwhile Yogi ji (the masterof name changer) : #RamMandir pic.twitter.com/5VK1aB566U — Nikhil Kumar Sharma (@iamsharmanikhil) August 5, 2020 It's not that deep. Who else thinks "Aditya Yoginath" is not a slip of tongue?

It could be an intentional psychological tactic to indicate that he is not worthy enough!?

— Puncture walla & Proud (@PunctureWalla) August 5, 2020 I feel bad. When you love your homie with all your heart and he mispronounces your name as 'Aditya Yoginath' in front of whole nation pic.twitter.com/Equ0L5Zqoz — Arjun (@pavbhajiandchil) August 5, 2020 Okay then. It takes real STREANH to call US President DOLAAND

It takes the power of Gutter Gas to call Mahatma Gandhi as MOHANLAL

It takes GOBAR Integration to call the famous painter NIOLARDO Da Vinci

But it takes the vision of #tonorrow to call the UP CM

Ryan Reynolds Released His Own Cut Of 'Green Lantern' & It's Not Even Half A Minute Long

Ryan Reynolds is the only person who should be allowed to troll anyone ever. He's the only one who does it in good fun and he doesn't even spare himself.  Taking a break from hilariously trolling his own friends, he's now taken his hatred for Green Lantern to a whole another level. So, everyone obviously knows that the movie is not great, of course, and he even had a gag about it at the end of Deadpool 2. Now, he has decided to share his own cut of the movie and honestly, it's the most Ryan Reynolds thing ever. Not even reaching the 30-second mark, the 'movie' is so abruptly cut up and put together, it even has Tom Cruise in it at one point. © Twitter This man's mind is wild and this video completely proves it. From starting off with the Green Lantern joke from Deadpool 2 to Tom Cruise in Top Gun, to finally Reynolds' Hal Jordan inserted into the ending of 2017's Justice League, this cut is as crazy as one would expect.

Cricket Fans Hail Ireland For Beating 'Fake World Champions' England In A Pulsating Clash

Whether there is an outbreak of a pandemic like Coronavirus (COVID-19) or not, a match between a cricketing powerhouse and a minnow is never really looked upon as a contest. More often than not, cricket fans avoid such contests wherein a supposedly one-sided affair isn't just good enough to attract viewership. While the 'David vs Goliath' story is surely an inspiring tale, it means nothing and holds little value until we see the underdog outshining the champion in reality. That was probably the case when Ireland geared up to take on England in the three-match ODI series recently. A country which is still finding its feet in international cricket was probably expected to be the punching bag, or sparring partners at best, for a much-superior England side. Staying true to the popular notion, Ireland did resemble a punching bag in the first two ODIs where they lost by quite some margin. The first match saw them getting bundled out for 172 runs during their six-wicket loss and the second tie witnessed the Irish posting a total of just 213 runs which was eventually chased down by England in under 33 overs, with four wickets to spare. © Reuters Owing to their performance, when a 106-run knock by captain Eoin Morgan saw England romping their way to a mammoth total of 328 runs in the third ODI, an inferior side like Ireland was never looked upon as the one that'll pose a challenge to the hosts, let alone win the contest. But, playing behind closed doors, sans much fanfare, Ireland filled The Rose Bowl with sounds of cracking shots which paved the way for one of their most memorable wins.
Chasing the mammoth total, Ireland pulled off a sensational seven wicket win with a delivery to spare against the world champions. Paul Stirling (142) and Andy Balbirnie (113) undeniably played one of the best innings of their respective careers to help their team record a new chapter in the history of Ireland cricket. © Reuters It was Ireland's second win against England and also their first ODI triumph against major opposition since the 2015 World Cup. The victory also helped them in securing 10 points against their name in the ICC World Cup Super League - a new competition that will determine the qualification for the 2023 World Cup.
On the other hand, Ireland also shattered Team India's 18-year-old record for the highest successful run-chase against England in their own backyard.

10 Revelations In Sushant Singh Rajput’s Case That Might Prove It Is Not A Suicide

On 14th June, we all were relaxing as it was a Sunday but everything changed when the news started to flash that Sushant Singh Rajput is no more and the reason stated was that he died by suicide. We were numb and hundreds of questions started to bother us when his last pictures surfaced on the internet. His case was more complicated than it looked like and there were set of revelations that were to come in light.    The fans and well-wishers flooded the social media platforms and questioned if he was murdered because pictures of his deceased body told a different tale than it was being presented on the TV. For those who have met him, they were unable to wrap their heads around the whole theory of suicide but it looked like a well-planned murder. On YouTube, some forensic experts started to do the virtual autopsy and claimed that he was brutally beaten up before being choked to death. In no time, people started to ask for justice for Sushant Singh Rajput and it’s more than 50 days, there’s no development in the direction of finding the truth. When Sushant’s father filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty, the whole narrative of the case changed, and here’s when news channels swung into action and since then, there have been some very shocking revelations.  We are sharing with you the 10 most shocking claims that came out in his case and it might change your perspective to see it. 1. As per a report in Mid-Day, a forensic surgeon, on the condition of anonymity, told the tabloid that the forensic surgeons who had done the autopsy on Sushant may not have collected the crucial finger swabs and nail clippings. The report quoted a forensic surgeon saying, “This swab could have indicated if dust particles from the ceiling fan were present on Sushant's fingers. This would have cleared the ambiguity over foul play. The dust particles would have been on the cloth used for hanging, on the ceiling fan and fingertips. The type of dust particles on all would have offered a clue. Even if the fingertips did not have dust, the cloth and fan would surely have had.”  The forensic surgeon told the daily, “The forensic surgeons/scientists could have asked to take specific fingerprints, which a fingerprint expert may miss out on as every crime scene is different. An analysis of the same by a forensic surgeon and forensic scientist usually helps gather more evidence.”    2. Sushant Singh Rajput's family's appointed lawyer Vikas Singh, in an interview with Pinkvilla, had made some shocking revelations about Rhea Chakraborty. Well, she claimed that Sushant’s sister Priyanka Singh molested her at a party. Rhea invited Sushant and Priyanka to her brother Showick Chakraborty's birthday party. It was on 20th April that Sushant and his sister were at the party and things got ugly when Rhea allegedly told him that his sister took advantage of her. The lawyer said, “Rhea told Sushant the earlier night, after the birthday party, that his sister Priyanka tried to take advantage of her and molest her on the intervening night of 18-19th April at Sushant’s residence, Sushant believed Rhea and had an altercation with his sister Priyanka and Priyanka couldn't even believe that Sushant would get manipulated this way but she wanted peace and vacated the apartment. Once she reached Delhi and told her husband about it, her husband told her that what happened was not correct as he was also there on the intervening night of 18-19th April 2019 and reasoned it out with Sushant directly through WhatsApp messages but Sushant wasn't ready to listen." Eventually, he did come back to realize that Rhea manipulated to create a rift between the siblings.    3. Rhea Chakraborty and the family left their building right after the Bihar Government sent the officials to investigate her. She was not available and the Bihar police also added their motive is not to punish any innocent. “If Rhea has not done anything wrong then she should stop playing hide-and-seek with the police and come forward to clarify the things," the Bihar Police said. 4. Sushant’s former cook Ashok said the actor hardly took any medicine when he was working there. It was after the Europe trip, that things started to change. Ashok was asked not to continue and wasn’t given any concrete reason for that. "I was working as a cook in Sushant's house and I am a chef. I worked for three-four years with him up till September 2019. Everything seemed fine till I was working there, neither did I see him taking any medicine during that time. I don't know what happened afterward," Ashok told ANI. He added, “Sushant was in touch with his family till the time I was working. Even I spoke to his family members on some occasions when they used to call him. He was a strong man and how can he be depressed?" 5. The theory behind who saw him hanging is also very shady because there are different versions of it. Sidharth Pithani said he was the first one to see the body hanging and the cook also claimed the same thing. Yesterday, Sidharth Pithani, in an interview with Times Now said that he asked the key-maker to go and check who first found him hanging. He kept changing his statements every 5 minutes in the interview. He also added that he physically cut the cloth and brought down his body after his ‘jiju’ asked him but the family has denied all his claims. Then, he said the key makers were asked to leave just after they opened the door.    6. His conflicting statements in the interview made it sure that he is hiding a lot of things. He earlier said that he didn’t witness any fight between Rhea and Sushant and then went on to claim he knew about their troubled relationship. He had earlier said that he had professional ties with Sushant but then claimed that he left his job to be by the actor’s side. He said that he wasn’t aware of the fact that Rhea was handling expenses and then claimed that he had informed the family about the expenses. He also admitted that he did give medicines to him but only recalled one of the names. Here’s the interview. 7. Sushant’s former close aide Ankit Acharya told that the actor never slept with locked doors. He also claimed that he too was asked to leave and he went later to see Sushant, he was not allowed to meet him. He also revealed that he got to know that a different kind of ‘Pooja’ happened at home. He also said that Rhea used to party on his expenses. Sushant’s bodyguard also claimed that Rhea did ask him to get the medicines for the actor.     8. Sushant’s friend on the basis of anonymity told Republic that the actor had told him about Sandip Ssingh and he knows everything but the friend also added Ssingh is a mysterious character because he is twisting statements. He also said that Bollywood biggies are somewhere connected.     9. Sushant’s family friend Smita also revealed that Disha Salian’s death did upset him and he was scared. He kept telling his sister that they won’t leave me. He was very anxious but he wasn’t depressed. Bihar DGP also agreed that both the deaths are linked. 10. Sandip Ssingh claimed on TV that it was only one ambulance that came but the videos claim otherwise. There were three ambulances on the premises.     There are more such revelations but for us, these 10 were too big and would change your perspective of seeing his death because it's way more complicated than it looks like. We sincerely hope that the truth prevails and justice is served.

The Razer Kishi Is The Perfect Gamepad For Mobile Gamers And It Needs To Come To India

My favourite console this generation is the Nintendo Switch simply because I can use it anywhere I want with the physical controller that gets attached to its side. Razer launched a new gamepad for mobiles that is heavily influenced by the Nintendo Switch's Joy-Cons and is essentially the perfect accessory for mobile gamers.  © Razer The Razer Kishi follows a periscope and joy-con inspired design that works with almost every Android phone. The controller plugs into the USB-C port of the phone which means one does not have to deal with input lag over Bluetooth. It eliminates every frustration we have come to associate with lacklustre Bluetooth controllers and just works like a gamepad is supposed to. 
Smartphone gaming is still very much popular in India with millions of gamers playing all kinds of titles. From battle Royale to casual games; India has been at the forefront of mobile gaming for the past few years. The Razer Kishi can be used for different types of gaming -- for example, cloud gaming is going to be the next big revolution in the industry that will make games accessible to an audience in India that don’t necessarily play on traditional gaming consoles. Reliance Jio is already talking about game streaming on their LTE and 5G networks and sooner or later game streaming will play a major role in India’s smartphone gaming industry.  © Razer While services like xCloud, Stadia and GeForce Now are yet to launch in the country, the controller can be used for playing normal Android games and even emulate older games from previous generations. The Razer Kishi is probably the only smartphone gamepad that actually makes sense using since the design already works well for the Nintendo Switch. The Razer Kishi essentially turns any smartphone into a portable Xbox or a handheld gaming device. There have been other accessories out there that do something similar, but none of them are as refined as the Razer Kishi.  © Xbox Razer The Razer Kishi comes with two analog sticks, four face buttons, a directional pad, and the shoulder buttons i.e. L1/L2, R1/R2. It basically replicates the Xbox and PlayStation controller in the most practical design we’ve ever seen. While the Kishi is only compatible with Android phones at the moment, support for iOS devices is on its way. 
The Razer Kishi retails for about $70 (Rs 5,240) and this accessory really needs to make its way to India sooner before knock-offs take over the market. We’ve already talked about how important game streaming could be for India and Razer Kishi needs to be a part of that journey.

We are satisfied with the outcome of the hearing. In view of the pendency of the proceedings in SC Rhea or anyone on her behalf refrains from making any comments in the case."
It's after Sushant's father's FIR in Bihar that the case picked up pace and finally, we are one step closer to getting justice for the actor.

HP 14s Seems Like A Perfect Work From Home Laptop That Won't Break Your Bank

There are plenty of options out there when it comes to reliable laptops that won't break your bank. But it's not always possible to find the perfect machine that offers a lot of unique features along with great specs while keeping the price low. Well, we think the HP 14s is one of those laptops that somewhat gets it right. We've been using this machine for a couple of weeks now as our primary device for work and we think it's a very reliable laptop with a great set of features. Design & Features © HP Laptop As you can see, there's nothing to talk about when it comes to design. Well, that's because it's a very basic notebook with the main focus on specs, features, and usability. I'd like to mention that it's got the I/O sorted. You're looking at a USB Type C port, a USB Type-A ports, 1HDMI port, an SD card reader, and a headphone jack.
Internally, this laptop is powered by Intel's 10th-gen Core i3/i5 processors and comes with up to 8GB RAM and 1TB HDD. Obviously it's not the fastest laptop out there, but we were adequately happy with the performance. It managed to hold its head while performing our day-to-day tasks. © HP Laptop We won't really recommend playing games on it because it doesn't have a dedicated GPU nor is the chassis built to handle the thermals under super heavy loads.
As you open the lid, you'll see a 15.6-inch FHD panel. It doesn't have the best screen-to-body ratio, but the panel itself is pretty decent with good brightness levels. Coming to the keyboard, we totally enjoyed typing on it. The keys have a decent amount of travel and they have really good feedback. © HP LTE SupportOne of the favorite features of this laptop is that it comes with LTE support, which means you don't have to worry about an active Wi-Fi connection to use the internet. Simply throw in your own SIM card and you'll be good to go. This may not seem like a huge feature, but it definitely comes handy. © HP Laptop The Final SayThe HP 14s is priced at Rs 44,999 for the base variant. At that price, you're looking at a reliable machine that keeps up with your day-to-day work. If you're on the market for a basic entry-level laptop to get your work done, then we think it's a really good option. We also recommend you check out the Mi Notebook 14 if you don't mind buying Chinese products. It's also priced similarly and has a lot going for it in its favor.

Petrol Pump Worker’s Son Becomes UPSC 2019 Topper From MP & Here’s His Inspiring Story

There is no greater thrill than chasing after a dream that fuels your heart day and night. But there is no greater happiness than to find out that your dream has now turned into reality, only because despite the endless challenges you decided that giving up is not an option. Every hurdle turns into a learning curve, and every setback is nothing more than a test of your determination and patience when you know that nothing can keep you away from your goal. © Instagram/Pradeep Singh That’s exactly what it had been like for Pradeep Singh, who is known for having created history in 2018 by becoming the youngest Indian to crack the UPSC exam at the age of 22 by finishing in 93rd Rank. Currently serving as an officer in Indian Revenue Service as an Assistant Commissioner of Income Tax, Singh has now ranked 26th in UPSC 2019 exam.
Here is his supremely motivational story of fighting every odd and pursuing his dream. The Backstory © Instagram/Pradeep Singh Originally a native of Gopalganj in Bihar, Pradeep Singh comes from a humble family that is currently living in Indore. In his family of four, Singh has his parents and his elder brother, all of whom he gives credit to for his success. In the early years of life, Singh grew up amid financial difficulties with his father as the only earning member in the family.
A son of a petrol pump serviceman Manoj, Singh grew up witnessing his father toil hard at the Diamond petrol pump in Niranjanpur Dewas Naka, Indore for more than 22 years. His mother, a housewife, did her best to make ends meet and support the children to pursue their dreams. Today, Singh’s elder brother is working with a private company while Singh has cleared UPSC in his first attempt. The Struggles Made Him Strong © Instagram/Pradeep Singh Ever since he was a school kid, Singh desired to crack the civil services examination and found his family members to be completely supportive of his decision. Once he realised the full potential of becoming a civil servant and the kind of positive impact he can bring into the society through his work, Singh knew he had to crack the IAS exam and he eventually began working towards it during his B.Com years at IIPS, DAVV in Indore.
After graduating, he decided to move to Delhi for UPSC coaching in 2017. However, the coaching fees at Vajiram & Ravi was 1.5 lakh rupees and there were other expenses to be taken into account. Singh’s parents ended up selling their little house, built after many struggles and using their entire life savings, to fund Singh’s dream of becoming an IAS officer. © Instagram/Pradeep Singh They even ended up selling their share of land in the native village to ensure Singh doesn’t have to undergo any financial difficulties during his time in the Capital city. Singh’s family members were so bent on giving him a smooth ride that they didn’t even inform Singh about his mother’s hospitalisation during his UPSC Mains exam.
Chasing His Dream & Nailing ItThese major sacrifices on his family’s part instilled an ever-growing desire in Singh’s heart to crack the UPSC exam and make his dreams come true for the sake of his family as much as himself. In 2018, Singh gave his Prelims and cracked it with flying colours. © Instagram/Pradeep Singh Pumped with greater hope, the UPSC Mains were no different and soon Singh found himself facing the dreaded UPSC panel for the final round of personal interviews. As luck and his determination would have it, Singh nailed that too! Soon, he got placed as an officer in the Indian Revenue Service.
However, with his greater wish to crack IAS, Singh appeared in the exam again and today, with the final results finally out, he has been reportedly named the top ranking UPSC 2019 candidate to clear the exam from Madhya Pradesh.

I Cut Off ‘Added Sugar’ From My Diet For Three Weeks & Here’s What Happened To Me

Sugar is present in almost everything that we eat throughout the day. Dairy, fruits, vegetables and even grains consist of some amount of natural sugar in them.  It is a source of glucose which is an essential element for our body to get energy, in order to carry out our day-to-day activities consistently (while sugar breaks down very quickly, protein, fats and starch are also major sources of glucose). Having said that, there are different kinds of sugars.  © iStock Natural sugar which comes from whole foods is considered to be healthy. 
Processed sugar which is used in products such as canned juices, cold drinks and desserts to make them sweet(er) can be harmful to the body when eaten in large quantities. These are called added sugars. Also Read: 5 Shocking Foods Full Of Sugar  So, I decided to cut off added sugar from my diet for three weeks and here’s what happened to me: Increased Rate Of Weight Loss © iStock While I was losing weight with time while keeping my calories in check (about 2,000 calories) and working out at home (under the lockdown), the rate at which I was dropping the kilos was very slow. Approximately 1 kg in 14 days.
Ever since I cut off all the added sugar from my diet (avoiding sugar in my coffee or ice creams), the rate has increased significantly. After the first week of the boycott, the results were visible. I am now losing 1 kilo of weight every week. Also Read: 5 Exercises To Boost Your Metabolism  Reduction In Body Fat Percentage © iStock Through intense cardio, I’d lost a considerable amount of weight a few years ago but didn’t cut off sugar from my diet. While my weight was dropping I realised that most of it happened because of the muscle mass that I was losing (due to the lack of weight training) and that I still “looked fat” despite being 20 kilos lighter.
Within three weeks of quitting added sugar, I have not only reduced my weight but have also managed to maintain my muscle mass and can definitely feel the fat burning off. Also Read: Here's How To Lose Fat And Build Muscle At The Same Time Reduced Overeating © iStock On the second Sunday of my non-added-sugar-diet, I realised that I was feeling fuller while consuming smaller portions of my regular meals which included chapatis, dal, salad and some cooked vegetables or chicken curry.  Up until a couple of months ago, I used to eat smaller portions of meals in order to get my calories under check but didn’t feel full after eating and ended up snacking more often, which defeated the whole purpose of counting calories. Now, the urge for a second serving doesn’t occur that often. Also Read: How To Keep Yourself From Overeating Better Sleep Cycle © iStock On most nights, I’d indulge in a post-dinner dessert maybe an hour before going to bed but had trouble falling asleep and the next morning, despite getting up late, I used to feel exhausted and fatigued.
But at least for a week, I have been able to fall asleep within a few minutes of sliding into my bed and getting up with a lot more energy than before. Also Read: 5 Mindful Hacks To Get A Better Sleep Without Oversleeping NOTE: These observations are completely personal and may vary from person to person.

All We Know About Bihar’s IPS Officer Vinay Tiwari Who Was Sent To Investigate Sushant's Case

IPS Officer Vinay Tiwari from Bihar, who came to Mumbai on Sunday night to investigate the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, was put into quarantine after he landed at the airport but that wasn’t the case with other officials from Bihar.  Like the shadow
I am
and
I am not...
~ Jalaluddin Rumi ️ pic.twitter.com/Ejj1X6LSyV — Sushant Singh Rajput (@itsSSR) October 26, 2019 In an exclusive chat with India Today, he said, “We had informed them one day prior to my arrival, including the date and time. Even at the airport, I was not informed that I will be quarantined. The screening happened and then I was asked to leave. I was not even asked to fill any form at the airport. After I stepped out of the airport I even briefed the media was waiting outside. As is clear from the pictures, I had no quarantine stamp on my hand at the time. After that, I reached my guest house and left for investigation. Later in the night, I got a call and I got back to the guest house at around 11:30 pm. It was then that I was shown a document that stated that home quarantine is necessary. When I ask for an exemption they told me that they don't have the authority to do it, only that senior officials can allow it. So I agreed to get stamped and informed my senior officials." © Vinay Tiwari IPS Facebook This has got the people speculating the main reason behind it because he was one of the main people who was supposed to lead the investigation in Sushant’s mysterious death case.
We did a bit of digging to know who is Vinay Tiwari and this is all we know about him: Not An Easy Childhood...His father was a farmer and Vinay had seen his father struggling. His mother used to tell him about the kind of struggles that his father has to go through for the family. His father had taken a loan for the education of his children and to pay him back, Vinay dedicated himself to studying for civil services. Did His Graduation From IIT He went to Kota for the preparation of his engineering examinations and successfully completed his graduation from IIT BHU in Varanasi.  © Vinay Tiwari IPS Facebook His Father’s DreamHe completed graduation and it was his father’s dream that he should crack the examination for Indian Administrative Services (IAS). He started to prepare for it but there were financial constraints. Wanted To Work Right After GraduationVinay wanted to follow his father’s dream but didn’t want to put all the burden on him so he started to look for jobs but his father told him that Vinay need not worry as he will take care of his studies.  © Vinay Tiwari IPS Facebook Got 193rd Rank In IAS ExamsHe managed to get a rank and was selected for the position of an IPS Officer. He started his journey with Kota and has now become one of the youngest IPS officers in Bihar. We wish that he soon comes out of the quarantine and takes hold of the case.

Sidharth Shukla’s Basic Outfit Is ‘A+’ For Quick Trips in Unlock 3.0, Except For His Flip-Flops

Sidharth Shukla isn’t exactly known for his fashion choices, but every now and then, he has actually given us some really good outfits to talk about. Whether you speak of that rather zany tuxedo that he wore for the Bigg Boss finale, or the countless quirky hoodies that he is seen in his Instagram live sessions, he does know how to dress with effect. © Twitter/sidharth_shukla With that being said, time and again, he has shown us that when it comes to fashion and style, simplicity is the best thing that can be done.
© Twitter/sidharth_shukla Case in point would be this very basic outfit that he was seen in while steeping out his house. © Viral Bhayani And that’s the reason why we like this outfit, because of its simplicity. As opposed to a few other celebrities who have stepped out wearing flouncy cowled shirts, layered jackets and crazy expensive sneakers and whatnot, Sidharth’s way of keeping things simple should be the motto going forward. © Viral Bhayani Sidharth can be seen here in a very simple Abercrombie & Fitch polo shirt, and a pair of light washed denim. This part of the outfit, we approve of. © Viral Bhayani What we don’t approve of, are those slippers. First of all, slippers stopped being cool way, way back in the early 2000s. Secondly, unless you’re at a beach or a beach resort, you should stay away from them. They are the 2020's equivalent of Crocs, if you will. © Viral Bhayani No matter how fancy we get, they are called “bathroom slippers” for a reason. Moreover, we’re pretty certain that wearing slippers when stepping outside your home, especially given the current situation isn’t exactly advisable. Not only would a pair of sneakers looked better, it is also actually much safer than steeping out in basic slippers. © Viral Bhayani Coming back to the rest of the outfit, we’re glad that all COVID specific guidelines have been followed, and that Sidharth is wearing a simple basic mask. The thing with fancy designer masks, is that they are hard to maintain, and more importantly, they don’t necessarily work better than a regular mask. © Viral Bhayani All in all, we’re just glad that celebrities are finally stepping out, slowly and steadily.

Sony WF-1000XM3 Vs AirPods Pro: Which Is the Best Pair Of Noise Cancelling Earbuds For Music Lovers?

There might an overflow of TWS earphones in the Indian market but there is only a handful that can be categorised as the best true wireless earbuds. However, now we’re getting TWS earbuds that also has noise cancellation features which you cannot find on many TWS earbuds. We’ve been using both the Sony WF-1000XM3 Vs AirPods Pro for a year even though the former launched their offering almost a year after its global launch. However, it is never too late as we will be weighing both of them in numerous scenarios to determine which one is the best for you.  Before we start, we need to say that neither of them are perfect but we do have a preference when it comes to features, price and functionality. Here are some of the features we love on both devices that you may want to look into detail before purchasing either of the two TWS ANC earbuds. 1. Noise Cancellation © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Sony and Apple both have started to familiarise themselves with active noise cancellation on their offerings. However, Sony has more experience with this technology than Apple at the moment. Sony already killed it with their over-the-head WH-1000XM3 and took over the market leader Bose in this category. It was thanks to the QN1e HD noise cancelling processor, and we see the same chipset is used for the TWS version of the earbuds. I personally own all three, the over-the-head 1000XM3, the TWS 1000XM3 and the AirPods Pro. With confidence, I can say that I’ve made the WF-1000XM3 as my exclusive noise-cancelling earphones for the time being. They are incredible at eliminating most of the noise near you and can even let in voice in if someone is speaking near you. You can customise these settings from the Sony Headphones Connect app fairly easier. 
You can even adjust the level of noise cancellation from the app for situations such as using them in the office and you may need to some noise or chatter coming in. Similarly, there’s a profile where the earphones detect if you are walking and lets in noise from the nearby traffic so that you are aware of your surroundings. These features work with both iOS and Android phones which gives the Sony 1000-XM3s a huge advantage. No such feature is available on the AirPods Pro the way it works with Sony's earbuds.  In the case of the AirPods Pro, one has to hold the stem to let chatter in and does not have other exclusive features such as sound profiles and location-based settings even when using with an iPhone. Sony offers by far more flexibility than the AirPods Pro and if you are looking for a superior TWS that does ANC well, the Sony WF-1000XM3 should be your only choice.  Winner: Sony WF-1000XM3  2. Design  © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla If you are a little fussy about the design, then there’s no secret that the AirPods Pro looks less bulky than the Sony WF-1000XM3. If you are looking for TWS earphones that have a low profile and do not stick out of your ear, then the AirPods Pro is a far better option to consider. Having said that, we do prefer the touch sensor on WF-1000XM3 as it is more natural to control music playback, switch between noise cancellation profiles and fire up Google Assistant than holding the short stem of the AirPods Pro. The AirPods Pro are also lighter in weight which means you can use them for a longer period of time as compared to the WF-1000XM3. The AirPods Pro’s charging case can also be used wirelessly which is an absent feature for Sony’s offering. 
Winner: AirPods Pro  3. Sound Quality  © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Beating Sony’s legacy of audio products is hard and the case remains the same here as well. The Sony WF-1000XM3 have larger 6mm drivers that output a great soundstage, perplexing mid-range frequency and a very controlled low-range frequency i.e. bass. You can even adjust each of the frequencies to your liking from the equaliser in the Sony Headphones Connect app which is not an option on the AirPods Pro. While the AirPods Pro also sound great with vocals sounding very rich and a similar low-frequency profile, the Sony WF-1000XM3 gives more room for sounds in the mid-range frequency which basically gives more character to any song. The fact that the Sony WF-1000XM3 makes it feel as if the sound is coming from inside your head rather than an outside source is the main reason why we would recommend these TWS earbuds. AirPods Pro feel slightly more distant and lack key details that earbuds should provide. 
Winner: Sony WF-1000XM3 4. Sweat Resistance If your intention is to use any of these earbuds while working out then you need to proceed with caution. The Sony WF-1000XM3 does not come with any IP Rating and Sony does not recommend using them while working out or near any water source. If you need to use TWS earphones while working out, the AirPods Pro is a better choice as it comes with an IPX4 rating.  Winner: AirPods Pro  5. Battery Life  © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla If we do a direct comparison between the two, the Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds can last up to 6 hours on a single charge and even longer when not using the noise cancellation feature. The charging case can bring up the total usage to around 26 hours which is quite impressive. Having said that, the charging case is also fairly larger than the AirPods Pro case so make sure you have enough space in your pockets to carry it around. The AirPods Pro earbuds can last up to 4.5 hours on a single charge and 24 hours in total with the charging case. So the earbuds on the Song WF-1000XM3 do last longer than the AirPods Pro by at least two hours which can be a big deal if you travel for long periods of time. 
Winner: Sony WF-1000XM3 Overall Winner  It’s a fairly close fight however there is only one winner and in our honest opinion that happens to be the Sony WF-1000XM3. It has better sound quality, better noise cancellation feature and more customisation options than what the AirPods Pro has on offer. The Sony WF-1000XM3 also last longer than the AirPods Pro which is a crucial factor to consider and works with every smartphone out there. If you can look past the bulky design and the lack of sweat resistance, the Sony WF-1000XM3 is a highly recommended purchase for Rs 19,990 that also happens to be cheaper than the AirPods Pro. You can even get these earbuds at an introductory offer of Rs 17,990 from 6th August onwards on Amazon India.  Check out our Tech Videos:

Rio From 'Money Heist' Was In An Indian Ad 5 Years Ago & It Was The Most Unexpected Crossover Ever

Do you know those who go like 'I was today years old when I learned...'? Well, I had that moment after finding out a weird and honestly unexpected relation between India and an actor from one of the most beloved shows right now. Before Miguel Herrán was going by Rio and robbing the Royal Mint of Spain, he actually, once upon a time, appeared in an Indian ad. © Netflix The eight-minute and twenty-second video for gaana.com features him along with Pia Bajpai and chronicles a love story of two people who met on the Delhi Metro.
© Gaana Wow, just taking a metro with Rio, fun stuff.
Side note - the sign says Rajiv Chowk and I don't think there has been a single day where that metro station has been this empty. It's almost as unrealistic as Miguel actually speaking Hindi. © Gaana Talking about the language, it's kind of cringey the way his lines are dubbed but overall, this is such a shocking crossover, I will let that slide.
How did this even happen, though? And, why is a Spanish actor, who wasn't even known in India back in 2015 when the ad was released, is doing here? © Gaana But, even though it seems so out of place, it's actually still a nice discovery.
Here's the video: A lot of people were surprised after finding this, but not as shocked as me, for sure. © YouTube Yes, Tokyo would not be happy.
© YouTube This person gets it.
