    Corona virus

    The lockdown was going swimmingly for me for the first month. But lately, I had a hard time dealing with the situation because of all the news I was consuming and the general uncertainty in the world. I now check the news only once in the morning and focus only on the things that lie in my...

    Suggest Wired Earphones with mic (non In Ear) for use with laptop (for teams and skype calls) / tablet / phone

    Earpods is still your best option. Mine are 4+ years old and I fear the day when they will conk off simply because they would be very hard to replace. I do not prefer the in-ear ones because unless I can hear my own voice during the call it feels very uncomfortable and unnatural. Also, the mic...

    Playerunknown’s Battleground : Discussion Thread

    Well nothing would beat an old school mouse+keyboard but I can easily say that claw grip on a mobile phone is much better than a controller (I have both PS3 and PS4).

    Hindi Series Discuss (neflix, amazon prime, youtube, etc.)

    Typewriter (Netflix) - 6/10 First 3 episodes are awesome and focus on environment and character setup. It starts going downhill by episode 4 and final episode is downright pathetic with random things happening. You can give this a miss.

    Hindi Series Discuss (neflix, amazon prime, youtube, etc.)

    Stopped watching after 10 minutes. Didn't laugh even a single time. Judged too quickly but glad that it was the right decision. :P

    Budget 10-15K Time to replace Moto G3, after 3 yrs legacy & love

    Because Samsung is still playing the same game of charging a premium just because it is Samsung. For the same price their phones have inferior performance. The Exynos processors lag behind their counterparts. The cameras are very average. Why buy them when you can get a better product for...

    Need external speakers for watching movies on TV [Budget: 0-10k]

    Size and design of the speakers are not an issue. Just that the dialogues should be clear to understand and should not drown under the sea of bass. Will check the reviews for these. I don't think there would be any way to try them though.

    Need external speakers for watching movies on TV [Budget: 0-10k]

    Thank you for the suggestions guys. I will definitely give Mi Soundbar a try. I have high expectations from Mi products as Mi has time and again met those expectations :)

    Need external speakers for watching movies on TV [Budget: 0-10k]

    Hi Folks. We have a Samsung LED TV and use a Panasonic 2.1 speakers with it. The problem is that the sound is too boomy and bass heavy for watching movies. We do not understand anything that the actors say and if we the increase volume too much it feels as if it would bring the house down. Even...

    Budget 10-15K Time to replace Moto G3, after 3 yrs legacy & love

    Don't get the Samsung phones at this budget. They are much inferior than the competition. For 11k, RN7s is a great phone. If you shell out a bit more for RN7 Pro then you will get a processor which is faster than anything under 18k and a much superior camera. You cannot go wrong with any of these.

    English TV series discussion

    Even after the disaster, reactor 1,2 and 3 were still kept operational. I wonder how that was done provided it still came within 30km exclusion zone.

    Rate the Last Movie You Saw...

    At one point, when he was fighting the armored guys in the continental, I saw him reload the shotgun with one shell and fire 5 rounds. But I don't think people making John Wick would make such rookie mistake :P

    Rate the Last Movie You Saw...

    John Wick 3: 7/10. A very simplistic story line with lots of action just like any other John Wick movie. Entertaining watch for action fans. They were inspired from hindi movies a bit as the hero didn't need to reload the gun as much :P De de pyaar de: 5/10. Very entertaining first half. Wanted...

    English TV series discussion

    Started Chernobyl. It is a HBO miniseries with 4 out of 5 episodes released. I must say it is very engaging. The show has 9.7 rating on IMDB with 78k votes!

    Coolwinks glasses and frames

    I bought 6 pairs of spects from coolwink when they had a ₹1600 instant paytm cashback promotional deal. All the frames were of good quality and better than those less than ₹1000 frames which I have seen in shops. The lens price was very high though even for normal plastic anti glare lens. 2...
