    ACT Broadband - Plan updates 2017

    Apologies for the OT, but didn't feel this warranted a new thread. My ACT bills are generated on the 1st of the month and are due by the 15th. I usually pay the bill at the start of the month itself. However, this month I decided to pay the bill on the 15th. However, today (14th) I got an email...

    Banggood.com Feedback thread

    I've ordered a bluetooth 30W amp from them. Took a while to come (about 6 weeks) but arrived safely with no customs charged.

    HDFC credit card- disapproved

    I considered this a few months later. Anyway, its too late now. At least my display pic matches my supposed life of crime :) What did you ask them on Twitter, btw? Is Mr./Ms. XYZ a genuine ICICI representative?

    HDFC credit card- disapproved

    Surprisingly, I have had a very different experience with ICICI. They called me up one day asking if I was interested in a credit card. Since I've had an account with them for decades, I agreed. They came home, made me fill in all the documentation and then never got back to me. A year later I...

    How many games do you own on Steam?

    Well, this is embarrassing. Less the amount spent, but more on how few of the games I actually end up playing.

    As far as Ola\Taxi For Sure are concerned, I would recommend that people stay away from the wallet system they use despite the convenience it affords. I had the issue below with a cab booked via Taxi For Sure. I did raise a complaint and was refunded 2 weeks later, but the fact that this is a...

    E-Cig / Vape Reviews ?

    Alright, I'll start off with some fundamentals for now, however, I would like the sign-off from a moderator if I'm allowed to go into this topic in more detail considering the subject-matter. Things you'll need: Battery (the bit that powers the ecig) Charger (if it doesn't come with the...

    E-Cig / Vape Reviews ?

    1. Don't go for the cheap cigalikes, they're rubbish. 2. Don't spend too much money on your first one. This may sound like it contradicts point 1, but e-cigs don't work for everyone. If you blow a bunch of cash on it and it doesn't cut mustard, then you're out a bunch of moolah. Although, there...

    Audio Looking for BT helmet stereo

    I agree with Hari. I had one of the cheap Chinese BT headsets first. The audio jack caved in after a couple of months. Upgraded to a Sena SMH5 shortly afterwards and havent looked back. I think there is a cheaper model of the Sena available in India now as well if budget is your concern.
