And it slowly kills it

When Apple unveiled its newest series of iPhones this month, I was, kind of, convinced to buy them. They seemed buyable, as they say, bang for every Buck.

Though it apparently seemed Apple did, or does nothing inherently wrong with its products, I recently came across a ghastly news about an old Apple lawsuit that has disappointed me with the company. The cause of the lawsuit –‘Planned Obsolescence’

Let me first define the complex tech jargon for you.

It is a secret strategy companies deliberately follow to make their products malfunction or end up unreliable after the period of its…

Modern humans absolutely couldn’t

It feels as if the Tokyo Olympics have just ended yesterday. This is literally the first Olympics I’ve ever watched on TV. While 206 countries have participated, 90 of them have won at least one medal.

And while a couple of records are broken almost every Olympics, there exist few records that weren’t broke for too long since they were set. And here I tell you about six of them.

#1. He won 28 Olympic medals in his career


Best part, you could start implementing them today

Dogs are awesome.

They give us everything they have — love, time, help, kisses and hugs, and if really needed, their life too. But, what’s the best gift we give them in return? Is it only a half-an-hour a day, some food and walk? It shouldn’t be so, should it?

I honestly feel the best gift we could give them is their health, and in turn a longer life. Most dogs live for about 10–13 years, and unfortunately (for dog lovers), it’s way lesser than a human’s lifespan.

But don’t worry. Here I give you seven easy tips you could…


He promised 25% of Bitcoins to the municipality, if they find

Everything has a boundary. Even luck and unluckiness. The guy you’re gonna meet now is one of the fewest people who have touched the boundary of unluckiness.

He wasn’t fired, didn’t lose his loved one, nor did miss an important interview. What happened to him is practically irreversible unless he owns a time-machine before he dies.

He is James Howells, a 35-year old IT engineer from Wales. Back in 2009, when Bitcoin was almost worthless, he mined 7,500 of them and stored the access key in his hard-disk. …


Is this the verge of English craziness?

When I first saw the sentence I thought someone copied ‘had’ and threw a book on keyboard, that pressed Ctrl+V for 10 times. But what I realised later was the sentence was grammatically perfect.

“James while John had had had had had had had had had had had a better effect on the teacher”

How come this is grammatically correct? Are you tryna kick out my English from my little brain? I don’t believe this.

I understand you. Even I felt the same when I saw it this morning. …


Why are they so meticulous about their cars?

So I’d like to start this post with a fictional story:

My friend Rahul, who’s already very boastful, has won a coveted lottery of $1.5 million. He became popular overnight. Now his pride knows no bounds. As always, he says he wants to buy a luxury car, though he has zero knowledge of what exactly they are.

He walked into the Rolls-Royce showroom in our city. Roamed inside as if he owned the place. Placed his Midas hand on a shiny car and talked (inaudibly) to the manager.

Few minutes later, I saw him trudging out with a disappointed, chagrined, frustrated face, carrying all the weight of his lottery-ego over his…


It’s not really as tough as people say

“When the placement season commences, a roller-coaster ride begins.”

Exams, exams, and exams everyday. All work and no play.

A typical day in my placements went like this.

  1. Wake up.
  2. Study incomplete DSAs (I didn’t take up DSA prior in my academics. Yup. My bad.)
  3. Check mails frequently for company arrivals.
  4. Apply at least for one eligible company every day.
  5. Attempt with hope an exam almost everyday.
  6. Open excel sheets of placed people, congratulate placed friends, and ask myself, “When will I get placed, my baba?”
  7. Sleep and dream for a job.

Somehow, I was fortunate, also maybe skilled enough…


If you apply them once, you can’t live without.

As you clicked on this article, I can safely assume you’re a Mac user, or someone who’s buying a Mac shortly, or you could also be Tim Cook. Why not? Hello sir! Whoever you are, you’ll always need shortcuts for easing petty things in the middle of a project.

We, busy people, are too busy to learn shortcuts. Most of us only know half-a-dozen shortcuts and we only smack them up repeatedly. However, there are a myriad of shortcuts just waiting under our keyboards to be used.

Here are a 10 of them in Mac.

Wait mom! Err… Auto-dictate turned on. My mistake. Let me undo it. ⌘…
