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.

I do not recommend you to bring changes to your diet without consulting a professional first.

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.

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.

Raigarh Cops Create World Record By Distributing Masks & Corona Must Be Laughing At The Irony

We have witnessed a number of never-seen-before instances amid the coronavirus outbreak. From wild animals roaming the city streets, to far-away sights greeting us from our balconies, we have had it all. And the latest incident to join the list is a world record created by the Chhattisgarh police through a successful COVID-19 awareness campaign. © TOI According to TNIE, on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, the Raigarh district police created awareness amongst the public on the importance of using face masks in preventing the spread of the COVID-19 infection. Reportedly, the campaign witnessed a distribution of over 14 lakh masks amongst the locals in the district within just six hours between 9am and 3pm.  © Twitter/ANI According to the report, the initiative was helmed by the district police chief Santosh Kumar Singh and created a record in the ‘Golden Book of World Records’ which stated that 12.37 lakh masks were distributed amongst people by the police personnel.
Speaking to TNIE, officer Singh said, "Our team and the volunteers were overwhelmed with an impressive response given by the people of Raigarh who enthusiastically made the campaign — Ek Rakshasutra Mask Ka, (One safety string of mask) as spectacular success. The Golden Book of World Records has certified the drive as having created a  world record by the Raigarh police. With the numbers continue to pour in, other agencies engaged with the record certification are also monitoring." © TOI The drive was held following a rise in COVID-19 cases in the area over the past month. It is said that close to 115 vehicles, 362 organisations and over 7500 volunteers participated in the drive.
Now we have come to a point where records are being made through distribution of face masks in India, and we wonder why lakhs of people were moving around town without one in the first place. Guess the district police will have to hold a masterclass for these people to understand the seriousness of the pandemic. As expected, people on social media appreciated the force’s initiative.

New Type Of Coronavirus With Higher Infection Rate Identified & We Can't Seem To Catch A Breath

The COVID-19 pandemic has already changed all of our lives in ways more than one and we seriously can't wait for all of it to get over. We've been hearing a lot about the development of new vaccines, but we don't know when they'll be available to the public. It better be available soon because it looks like there's a new type of coronavirus on the block. According to reports, it looks like this new COVID-19 strain has a higher infection rate than the previous versions and it's now spreading in Vietnam. © Reuters The health authorities over there noted that their country's tourism hub has detected a new strain that seems to be more transmissible. Nguyen Thanh Long, acting health minister of Vietnam, said, "Results of gene sequencing showed that this is a new strain that entered Vietnam. Mutation has increased susceptibility, leading to high rates of infection."
He further noted that the infection is about five to six people compared to older strains with a rate of 1.8 to 2.2 people. From what we know, it looks like Vietnam is trying to contain the virus to its best of abilities, however, we're not entirely sure about the extent of its spread. © Reuters The number of positive cases in Vietnam is constantly rising with more new cases identified with this new strain of the virus. Vietnam, sadly, cannot afford to go on a total lockdown as it would apparently lead to an economic crisis, but we really hope the authorities find a way to contain the spread.
At a time when we were hoping to hear some positive news about the vaccine, we're now hearing about a new type of coronavirus. This is a bit of a bummer but we hope we all get out of it soon. Source: Nikkei Asian Review

Ranbir’s 'Second Hand' Sneakers Are Selling For Over Rs 2.6 Lakhs In The Sneaker Market RN

Since he is not on any social media platform and has become a sort of a recluse ever since the lockdown, people forget that Ranbir Kapoor is a massive style icon. And the fact that as far as sneakerheads and hypebeasts are concerned in India, he is one of the biggest ones out there. © Viral Bhayani On the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, Ranbir stepped out as his usual casual self, in a very “basic” outfit, of a jumper and pair of distressed denim. While the outfit seems very low key and basic, it is anything but. © Viral Bhayani Ranbir is seen wearing a sweatshirt from Yeezy’s Season 5 collection. In case you’re not aware, Yeezy is Kanye West’s line of fashion apparels and includes a bunch of really dope looking pieces. © Viral Bhayani The sweatshirt that Ranbir’s wearing is called the Cali Sweatshirt which retails at about $250 or Rs 18,000, but can be found for a lot cheaper, for about Rs 11,000, if you know where to shop from.  © Yeezy Still, at 18 grand, it is significantly a budget option for someone who’s looking to add a few high-end street fashion pieces to his wardrobe. © Viral Bhayani What isn’t cheap are the sneakers that we see Ranbir wearing. He’s seen here wearing the Air 
Jordan 1 Retro High Off-White in a White/Cream colours. For collectors, this sneaker is nothing short of the grail of sneakers. © Nike When it was new a couple of years ago, it would retail for as low as $190 or Rs 14,000, plus taxes. As has been the case with Off White pieces, especially if Virgil Abloh has had anything to do with the designing bit, they become a rare collectable. © Hypebeast As of now, the sneakers fetch anything between $1,800 to $3,200 in the resale market. You’re basically paying anything between 10 to 17 times the original price. To put in terms of rupees, you can be expected to shell out anything between Rs 1.35 Lakhs to Rs 2.6 Lakhs.  © Hypebeast © Viral Bhayani We’re pretty certain that Ranbir might have copped the pair when it was brand new. However, given just how loaded he is, and how well connected he is among the who’s who of sneaker collectors, we wouldn’t be surprised if he actually spent that sort of cash on those sneakers.

The PlayStation 5 Prices May Have Been Leaked & Here’s How Much It Could Cost In India

We still don’t know how much the PlayStation 5 will cost. However, that doesn’t mean retailers haven’t been goofing up with accidental reveals. While many of those leaks can be categorised as placeholder listings, the latest leak comes for a major retailer in France and around Europe. It is worthy to point out that we may not see any effect on prices despite the spread of COVID-19 virus and the economic crisis it has caused. The pandemic has resulted in numerous job losses and furloughs which has caused savings to get tighter for the majority of people around the world. © Phonedrooid To put things into perspective, the PlayStation 4 launched for the same starting price seven years ago in Europe and subsequently similar prices in other regions. There have been previous rumours that the PlayStation 5 was expected to be more expensive at launch from the previous generation due to the pandemic and more expensive hardware. However, if this leaked price turns out to be true, we’re looking at consoles that cost the same as the previous generation at launch and may get price cuts later in the year if the stock doesn’t move as planned due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pixel 4a Has Finally Launched & It May Just Be The Best Camera Smartphone To Buy This Year

Google has finally launched the Pixel 4a that has been long rumoured to launch but it was probably disrupted due to the pandemic. However, it's never too late to launch a budget-friendly Pixel device that boasts of one of the best camera performances you can get from a smartphone. The Pixel 4a comes with a single 12MP camera at the rear and an 8MP sensor at the front. The smartphone comes with a headphone jack, a rear fingerprint sensor and additional security, thanks to Google’s new Titan M chip.  © BCCL There’s only one model launching for the Pixel 4a i.e. with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Indian pricing of the phone has not been revealed yet and the phone will also be coming to India sometime this October. There’s no XL variant this time around and the 4a comes with a 5.81-inch fullHD+ OLED display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The display also has support for HDR video content. The Pixel 4a is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730G chipset which is not particularly known for sustained GPU performance or, in other words, long gaming sessions.  © BCCL The camera on the Pixel 4a has 12-MP main sensor that has an aperture of f/1.7f. The camera supports HDR+ image capture and comes with all the main features from previous Pixel phones i.e. Portrait Shots, Night Sight, Top Shot, fused video stability and astrophotography capabilities. For video capture, the Pixel 4a also has OIS to reduce jerks in the final output.  © BCCL Finally, the Pixel 4a comes with a 3,140 mAh battery that can be fast-charged using 18W PD2.0 charging. The phone will have Android 10 out of the box and like every Pixel device, will be getting updates before any other Android phone with Android 11 coming soon. 
Google’s Pixel phones have long been known for taking some spectacular images thanks to computational photography and we can expect somewhat similar performance from this phone as wel. Early reviews already suggest the phone is a great value proposition for what the camera is capable of and its affordable price. However, we will know about the Indian pricing closer to India availability.

A 'PUBG Mobile' Streamer Was Openly Using And Selling Hacks On His Stream & It Needs To Stop

Earlier this weekend while casually browsing through my feed on Facebook, I came across a PUBG Mobile stream. I don't like playing the game personally, but I had to check out the stream because he had openly mentioned in the title that he's using exploits in the game to hack and gain an advantage over others. So for those of you who don't know, a lot of online multiplayer games are plagued by these issues where players use exploits to hack and cheat in the game to gain an advantage over the others and win. Sadly, PUBG Mobile is also a part of this list of games and there are a lot of users hacking their way to victory. © MensXP Obviously, hacking itself is illegal but this particular Indian streamer was openly using it on stream. He was only streaming to show how effective his hacks were. He was using a very effective exploit that showed him other player's locations. On top of that, he also had 'aimbot' which is essentially an exploit that automatically snaps your aim on to the opponent's head for a headshot.
Armed with all these exploits, he was running around the map abusing other players and killing everybody that came in front of him. He kept promoting these hacks and said anybody can purchase it from him by sending a message on his WhatsApp number which was mentioned in the description. © MensXP He kept mentioning how his hacks were safe from Tencent's anti-cheat software and they won't be banned. It's safe to say that his stream on Facebook Gaming was super toxic and we don't recommend anybody to tune in and buy those hacks from him.
Hacking has been a huge problem in online gaming and it's super annoying for normal players like us who're trying to get better at a game or just, you know, playing it for fun. I've been playing a lot of Apex Legends lately and I can confirm how cheating is a huge problem in that game. We really hope the devs of these games do a better job of keeping these hackers at bay. But until that happens, we players need to stay away from these players and keep reporting them for what they're doing. © MensXP I am obviously not going to name the streamer here because he's still streaming and promoting his hacks. The last thing we want to do is promote such abusers and get more hackers in-game. We've already reported his stream on Facebook and have reported him in-game too.
Lastly, I just want to point out that he couldn't even win a full game with his hacks. Imagine being so bad at the game that you can't win a match even with hacks. This proves how there's more to playing a game than just being good at aiming targets. It's better to spend time understanding a game properly instead of using these hacks and ruining the game for everyone.

Amitabh Bachchan Hits Back At Fans After Being Accused Of 'Advertising Nanavati & Amul'

Amitabh Bachchan, who just got back home after testing COVID-negative from Nanavati hospital, took to Facebook to thank the hospital for the services that were provided to him and wrote a whole post expressing his gratitude. A fan of Big B posted a long message saying that she has lost respect for him as he advertised a hospital. Guess what, Big B went ahead and shared the entire story on his blog. She shared her story wherein how her father was not treated in a great manner at Nanavati hospital. She wrote, “Mr. Amitabh, it's really sad the kind of advertisement you’re doing for a hospital like that who don’t care about human life and only want to make money...Sorry but totally lost respect for you.” © Amitabh Bachchan Blog Responding to her comment, Amitabh wrote,
“Jhanvi Ji .. I am truly sorry to learn of what your dear and respected Father had to go through and the subsequent problems he developed. I have been in and out of Hospitals from a young age and with medical conditions that have all been extremely severe. There is a certain Code of Conduct in the medical profession and I have noticed that the doctors, specialists, nurses management all put the utmost in the care of the patient on hand." He added,  “Yes lab tests can go wrong, but there are several other tests and conditions from which the assessment is made of any particular ailment. No hospital or doctor in my limited experience has ever not followed a code of conduct or deliberately done adverse treatments for any commercial gain. This I shall humbly disagree with. NO .. I do not advertise for the Hospital, I want to thank them for THE care and treatment that I got from Nanavati I shall and have done it for every Hospital that I have been admitted to and SHALL CONTINUE TO DO SO WITH GREAT RESPECT I! You may have lost respect for me but let me tell you, Jhanvi Ji, I shall never lose respect for the medical profession and the Doctors of my country. And one last thing .. MY RESPECT AND RESPECTABILITY is not going to be judged by you.”His trolling session didn’t end here with the fans. He shared one post thanking Amul and after which, a fan accused him of taking money from the brand for promoting it. A user wrote,  “Kam se kam muft mein toh amulya nahin banen honge... tay rakam li hogi. Saal dar saal badhi hogi.” © Amitabh Bachchan Blog To which Big B responded saying, 
“Bahut badi galat faimi mein chal rahen hain aap, miyan. Jab sach na maloom ho toh aapne swachh mukh ko swachh rakhiye. Na toh main Amul ko endorse karta hoon aur na kabhi kiya hain. Teer chalaane se pehle soch samajh lena chahiye, nahin toh woh aap pe hi aakar geerenge, jaise ki abb hua hai. Teer ki jagah jo mahawraa iss vishaye par woh kisi aur padaarth ka varnan karta hai. Meri sabhya parvarish ne mujhe uss ka varnan karne se rokk diya.”What appalled and confused fans though, is the fact that he wanted the social media user to keep his mouth clean but on his blog, he himself forgot to take his own advice. He repeated the word ‘thok do’ while addressing these trolls on his blog. Here’s what he wrote: “So yes .. beware of what is said and addressed .. the times of ‘thok do’ seem to have born fruit.” © Amitabh Bachchan Blog © Amitabh Bachchan Blog What do you guys think about this ongoing conflict?

Sonu Sood Just Stepped Out Wearing The Biggest, Bulkiest Sneakers We've Seen In A While

Sonu is the man of the hour for several reasons. While we all know that the amiable actor has been helping migrant workers reunite with their families amidst the coronavirus outbreak, his panoply of good work, will stay with us for long. But that's not the only thing we appreciate about Sonu. © Viral Bhayani Besides being a fitness enthusiast, the actor's closet is teeming with suave jackets, accessories and most importantly, his collection of sneakers. A quick look at his appearances and one could deduce that Sonu is into chunky and edgy sneakers, that tune well with all his outfits. Now that celebrities have started stepping out during Unlock phase 3, even Sonu was recently spotted sporting an unmissable sartorial streak. © Instagram Speaking of his ensemble, he looks unabashedly confident in a relaxed hoodie from Palm Angels and trackpants from Nike. But the reason we continue to get fascinated with his outfits are his eccentric sneakers.
© Hypebeast © Hypebeast Coming to the details of the sneakers, Sood is seen wearing Nike Air More Uptempo Sneakers in White/Black colourway. This is one of Nike's most striking creations, that released back in 1996. The White/Black colourway though is the latest addition that was launched in the market in 2018. These shoes have the signature AIR motif, sprawled across the lateral and medial sides with a mix of leather base and bold black letters. The black strap runs across the tongue, giving it a striped look, across the shoe. © Hypebeast There are multiple swooshes across the shoe with red trim and red tongue, with a jelly swoosh, down the heel. The signature of Pippen is designed over the jelly swoosh and Air Max cushioning, done again in black and white completes the whole look and feel of the shoes.
If we calculate the cost of these sneakers, they are priced at $160 USD, which sums to around Rs 12,018 as per Indian currency. If we compare it with other statement sneakers, it is relatively on an affordable side. © Viral Bhayani These sneakers, by far, are one of the most striking pairs that we have seen on a celeb post the lockdown and the fact that Sood is wearing them with utmost ease, can easily give other sneakerheads a run for their money.
All in all, a cool pair on a very generous man, definitely takes it a notch higher, if you ask us.

Mystery Of Santiago Flight 513 That ‘Disappeared’ In 1954, Only To Land In 1989 With Skeletons

The story of the puzzling incident that allegedly happened to Santiago Flight 513 between 1954 and 1989 has been making rounds among the believers of the ‘supernatural’ for decades now and still, people aren’t sure of what to make of it. A summary of the story for the uninitiated: © Gaia According to an article published by tabloid Weekly World News in 1989, Santiago Airlines Flight 513 took off on September 4, 1954 from Aachen, West Germany and was scheduled to arrive in Porto Alegre, Brazil 18 hours later. 
However, the aeroplane simply disappeared mid-flight over the Atlantic Ocean. At the time of the disappearance, authorities believed that the plane had crashed and for the years to follow, multiple search parties were formed in order to look out for the remains of the passengers or the plane but nothing was found. Time went by and decades passed. Santiago Airlines had already run out of business in 1956, just two years after the alleged disappearance and after failing to find even a single trace of evidence of a plane-crash, the search was called off. © Paranormal Investiagions Indonesia - Facebook Three and a half decades later, on October 12, 1989, the Porto Alegre airport in Brazil spotted an unauthorised aircraft circling around the airbase. The air traffic controllers tried contacting the pilot but got no response.
Eventually, the plane came close to the runway and stuck a perfect landing. It looked in a well-maintained shape and the engines were still up and running even after the plane touched base. Once the airport authorities approached the plane cautiously, they opened the doors from the outside and what they say, chilled their bones to the core. © World Media 24 - YouTube They found 92 perfectly-preserved skeletons of the people onboard (88 passengers and four crew members) “safely” buckled into their seats. When they opened the cockpit doors, they saw that the plane’s pilot, Captain Miguel Victor Cury, also in a skeletal form, still had his hands on the controls.
Fact-Checking: Is This Story True?Broadly speaking, there are three reasons why the story is widely considered to be false. Reason One: The Ill-Reputation Of The Tabloid Weekly World News was infamous for publishing ‘fictional stories’ in their tabloid more often than not. Four years before releasing the story on Flight 513, they had published yet another story of Pan Am Flight 914, which went missing for 37 years before reappearing and landing unscathed. Reason Two: The Story Seems… Familiar The mysterious story of Santiago Flight 513 seems uncannily similar to an episode of 1961 show The Twilight Zone titled ‘The Odyssey of Flight 33’ in which the aircraft “somehow, someway” travels back in time to 1939. Reason Three: Lack Of Evidence No credible source of news from 1954 could be traced back to, in order to confirm that the flight did indeed vanish into thin air. All we have is the newspaper clipping from 1989 to believe. https://t.co/dQxUAcnpVV

‘Umar 32 Hai Lekin Sharir 52 Ka Hai,’ Ishant Sharma Shares Why Dhoni Calls Him An ‘Old Man’

Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s tendency to maintain a cool and calm environment in the dressing room, even when the Indian cricket team used to be under intense pressure, is one of the major reasons why he became so successful as the captain. MS Dhoni funny stump mic. #msdhoni #cricket #wicketkeeping #icc @msdhoni pic.twitter.com/mP7vkBBRLP — Cricket Geek (@cricketgeek_) August 3, 2020 His sense of humour is known to all but Indian pacer Ishant Sharma often gets to be the butt of his jokes. In an interview with former Man in Blue, Deep Dasgupta, Sharma opened up about a running gag between Dhoni and him. In ESPNcricinfo’s chat show Cricket Baazi, Sharma said: Actually, mentally main 32 se zyada ka ho chuka hun. Meri biwi mujhe buddha bolti hai. Mahi bhai ka bhi mujhe message aata hain aur woh bhi mujhe bolte hain 'aur buddhe, kya kar raha hai?'. Main unko bolta hun 'Mahi bhai, main 32 saal ka hun', toh woh kehte hain 'teri age 32 hai, lekin tera sharir 52 ka hai beta' Image 1 Only Dhoni can make such comments made to yank Sharma’s chain as the former skipper himself turned 39 last month but boasts of the physical prowess of an athlete in his early twenties. Even though his hair has turned grey, it is only when he grows a beard that people get an idea of the Ranchi-born’s true age.  On the field, Dhoni continues to be one of the fittest international cricketers in the world. He can outrun your fastest bowlers, his endurance allows him to stick to the pitch for longer than your greatest batsmen and his agility and supernatural flexibility makes him one of the safest wicket-keepers a team can have on its side.  Pulling Ishant Sharma’s leg comes from the two cricketers being on the same side for over a decade. The speedster has had some of his greatest career-highlights under the leadership of Dhoni, including the 7-74 stint that he had against England during the Lords’ Test in 2014. The two cricketing icons of the nation will finally be seen in action in the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League that begins from September 19 in the United Arab Emirates after being postponed by several months due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

In a bid to recreate this feeling of euphoria, Smule in partnership with Radio Mirchi, just dropped the biggest friendship day bombshell – an ultimate friendship anthem that will stay with us for days. Created by the musical geniuses Benny Dayal, Shalmali Kholgade and Sneha Khanvalkar, the friendship day anthem is the biggest rage today. The song was originally supposed to be just a jingle, but with the musical trio working their magic, the result was a foot-tapping anthem that we can’t get enough of.

As you get nostalgic listening to this playful number, don’t forget to get your friends to join in on a friendship day special jam session.

This Rakshabandhan Let’s Vow To Protect A Lot More Than Just Our Precious Sisters

Rakshabandhan marks an important day in the annual Hindu calendar. It’s an auspicious day when the bond between brothers and sisters is formally celebrated. Now, although certain aspects of celebrating the ‘vow to protect’ associated with Rakshabandhan is up for debate, let us utilise this very traditional understanding of the festivity to serve a greater cause.  What I mean to suggest is that, this Rakshabandhan, let us make a few extra promises and extend protection and support to certain matters of great significance without limiting ourselves to vowing about protecting and supporting just our sisters. © Flickr Listed below are 5 such crucial matters that are affecting thousands of lives in our country and need our attention and support to turn over a fresh leaf, to grow and prosper or just exist happily and live to their fullest potential, because that is what they deserve. Let’s promise to protect and support:
1. Our EnvironmentThe on-going coronavirus pandemic might be the most obvious sign of distress that our planet and mother Nature could have given us. After centuries of exploitation and abuse, our environment, including the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we need to sustain and the resources we require to grow, is losing its power and purity. © Twitter - minatracks Glaciers are melting away at top speed, temperatures are constantly rising, sea water levels are going up, the air quality around the world is plummeting, massive wildfires, hurricanes and floods have become the new normal…
The Earth is requesting us to slow down, introspect and change our destructive ways before we lead this beautiful planet down a road of devastation there would be no coming back from. So perhaps the least we can do is to welcome small and positive changes that would help heal and revive the environment and this planet. 2. The Minority Communities © indiatomorrow There is enough on-going talk around minority issues in the country. But without getting into that debate, let us instead do our bit to educate and amplify the needs of those who do not have the numbers to make themselves heard. Be it linguistic, religious or even cultural minorities comprising numerous tribes and castes, we need to admit that a majority of Indian population isn’t ‘privileged’.
So let us try to learn, understand and help them make their lives better by saying no to discrimination in every form, by rejecting oppression of the backward and poor, by speaking up against exploitation and threats whenever we witness it. That’s the best way to keep our social fabric intact and allow age-old cultures and communities stay alive and thrive. 3. The LGBTQ+ Movement © Reuters Our fellow brothers and sisters from the LGBTQ+ community have just started to experience the taste of freedom. After years of struggles and innumerable instances of discrimination, attacks and ill-treatment, they are now finally living without fear. But is that all they deserve? Should they be content with only this win?
No. They deserve so much more. They deserve to be respected and acknowledged, they deserve to feel safe and accepted, to be treated as equals and given the same rights and opportunities each one of us enjoy (and often take for granted) by virtue of being humans and citizens of India. The least we can do is support their fight to claim what rightfully belongs to them and help them live as happy, prospering individuals. We need to protect and build a future where they can truly live happily, regardless of who they choose to love or what their gender orientation is. 4. Those Who Can’t Speak For Themselves © Twitter Smaridh Raj By this I mean to draw your attention to the plight of harmless animals (and birds) who are abused and killed by selfish, cruel and diabolical humans who think they are the lords of the world. Recently, so many instances of animal abuse came into light, such as feeding elephants and cows food filled with crackers, which led to the end of innocent animal lives.
That’s not all, so many pets and street animals have had to suffer in the hands of insensitive humans since the coronavirus outbreak with several owners disowning their pets and many others turning a blind eye towards hungry street animals or attacking those who tried to rescue/feed them. It’s time we truly and honestly start thinking about our responsibility as humans and do our bit to protect those who cannot speak up for themselves. These are just a few ways how making just four new promises this Rakhi can make this world a better place. Would you be making these promises?

Remember Rob From MAD? Turns Out He's One Of The Most Fashionable TV Presenters Around

If you were in school in the early 2000s and watched TV, you know who Rob is. Harun Robert or Rob as he was called, was a television presenter for MAD or Music Art & Dance, a programme that actually made arts and crafts quite fun.
© Instagram/robinthehoodofficial It wouldn’t be wrong to say that for many, his tricks and tips were far better than what the school curriculum had to offer. Naturally, then he has a crazy following on Instagram and YouTube, where he has two channels, one of which has numerous videos on craft and making cool stuff.
© Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Scroll through his Instagram feed and you’ll see that he quite fashion-savvy. In fact, saying that he is one of the most fashionable television presenters we have ever had, wouldn’t be an exaggeration.
© Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Here are a few photos to help you understand what we’re on about.
© Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Simple, clean colours, and a functional silhouette, this is athleisure done right. Also, a major lesson, that in terms of shoes, one does not need to stay limited to fabric-based sneakers.
© Instagram/robinthehoodofficial We’re glad that he got rid of those dreadlocks. Not that there was anything wrong with them, its just that they were a bit 2000s. We have to say, Rob has his grooming game on point.
© Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Now that’s how you rock a dhoti! Classy, and cool. We also love how he has added a different dimension to the otherwise monochrome outfit, with that golden border of the dhoti. A nice touch indeed.
© Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Alright, this is the kind of outfit we will be opting for, for the next casual and laidback party that we attend - a denim shirt with a baseball cap, and a chunky watch.
© Instagram/robinthehoodofficial Another lesson, why going off the beaten track when it comes to silhouettes is always stylish. We love the situation that’s going on around the collar and the front cowl in this photograph.
Clearly, the man knows how to dress up in style, and what works for him. Not a whole lot has changed at least on the surface. However, the minor tweaks that have taken place, were small steps to keep things contemporary & up to date. Nice!
