    Story of Kids arrested in Gujarat for playing Pubg

    Basically, it was anger management issues that brought on a fit of rage over some trivial and inconsequential matter, but still big enough to cause a surge of adrenaline and lead to a heart attack.

    Story of Kids arrested in Gujarat for playing Pubg

    He didn't die because he played for 6 hours. He died after going into a fit of rage at this friend's resulting in an adrenaline rush which subsequently caused a heart attack. The news portals will get more clicks if they made it out like playing the game caused the death.

    The New Flagship: Ryzen 9 3950X

    Threadripper 1920X and 1950X have TDP of 180W and power consumption on load in tests is 176-177W. 3900X has a TDP of 105W. So, I expect the 16 core part to have similar specs. I expect that Threadripper line up will be killed off altogether in favor of 8-16 core parts that work on the regular...

    The New Flagship: Ryzen 9 3950X

    Disappointing that 3900X is not a 16 core part. Not a big enough of a jump over my 2700X.

    Reality of Flipkart Mobile Exchange offer

    I meant Rs 500. It's an old fridge, but in perfect working condition. It would have cost me a lot more hassle to just to get it out of my house any other way. When I got a new fridge from Reliance digital, their delivery people picked up the old fridge as part of the exchange. In any case, this...

    Reality of Flipkart Mobile Exchange offer

    Some of the pickup guys they use can be very picky because if they accept a damaged or defective item, they will get chewed out for it. It does not help that people have passed on items with damage or defects when they have been more lax. So, from their side it's safe to reject a item with a...

    Canara bank-PNB with 9 other banks to be merged!

    I didn't call you an idiot. I said I am tired of arguing with idiots who just read and repeat stuff without understanding what it means. It was a choice that was up to you. I simply asked you a few questions that will help you follow why the capital is required and where it goes and how its...

    Canara bank-PNB with 9 other banks to be merged!

    I am also tried of arguing with idiots who read and repeat stuff without understanding what it means. So I ask you again 1. Where does the money for recapitalization by govt's come from? 2. Why does the bank need it if all their capital is good and not affected by the loans they give out? 3...

    Canara bank-PNB with 9 other banks to be merged!

    I may have over simplified the whole thing, but that doesn't change the premise. What do you think bonds are and why do you think anybody would buy them if the bank does not have any credibility? Why would anybody trust the bank when they are asking for debt against a piece of paper? Do you...

    Canara bank-PNB with 9 other banks to be merged!

    Adani had $1 billion loan approved by SBI for his sham mining operation in Australia after BJP came into power and at a time when no other bank was ready to given him fresh loans. It was later canceled after a controversy arose from it. A big chunk of NPA's plaguing the system are because of...

    Canara bank-PNB with 9 other banks to be merged!

    Actually no, the banks have limits on amount of money that they can out as loans. When loans are not recovered, they cannot give out more loans beyond the limit. They have to operate within the limit. Lets say if a bank can give out 10,000 crore in loans and 4000 crore cannot be recovered back...

    TRAI planning to screw with OTT services next

    This has everything to do with Netflix and Amazon Prime Videos. They are the very definition of OTT. They don't care as much about NDTV or some other broadcaster streaming directly as about people using Netflix and Amazon Videos and having their entire entertainment fix from it bypassing the...

    TRAI planning to screw with OTT services next

    https://telecomtalk.info/trai-ott-apps-tv-channels/196941/amp/ Probably because a lot of consumers have given up on TV and switched to OTT services after the broadcasting regulations.

    BJP can do course correction.. Here it is..

    It was in the news 10-12 years back i.e. back in 2007 or 2008 roundabout. I tried to search for a link, but could not find it. This was some local news group and in north India. Its not unique though. There are other similar social experiments conducted around the fake baba theme. In fact, many...

    BJP can do course correction.. Here it is..

    Some years back, a media outlet conducted an experiment. One of their guys who grew a beard went to village and sat under a tree near to some temple there. He did nothing else, just sat there under the tree in simple clothes. Mind you no saffron clothes or any other make up to give the...
