    Android Thoughts about K20 PRO?

    lol, you can say this about googles phones too. A true character building experience. And the weird thing is people switching to android from Ios get recommendations to try out googles phone. Nobody talks about this aspect. You get to find out as you go. ROM optimisation is a really difficult...

    Advice on Basic Home Color Printer (All in one - scanning included)- 5k -7k Budget

    Clogging happens if you don't use it at least once a week. With a basic inkjet. Is that likely in your case ? say if he only does a run at the end of the month instead of every week in the month. Ink tanks from what i've heard tend to be more resilient to this. My printing volume is irregular...

    Cordless Landline Phone

    No clue about better ringtone. Caller ID check the comments as i don't have any of those handsets. I was looking at wired phones and the one thing a lot of them are missing these days is batteries. Batteries in the phone retain your call log otherwise once you disconnect the phone say to move...

    best washing machine for 4 people under 35k

    Just say how high in feet your tank is ? Idea behind using a bigger drum is you do a larger load and use it less. A smaller machine means more washes and wear & tear. Or you end up overloading which comes to the same. Shorter life. Sales people will always recommend the cheapest as they want a...

    Cordless Landline Phone

    I picked this model couple years ago. Several reasons. - I wanted a DECT phone, this means it transmits at 1.9GHz instead of 2.4Ghz which is the norm for India Panasonic models. Why ? because the govt would not allow Panasonic to transmit at 1.9Ghz or maybe Panasonic did not bother to file an...

    best washing machine for 4 people under 35k

    So i thought this was my model but in silver. Silver is more expensive than plain white. But It isn't. Mine has a depth of 55cm Here the depth is only 44 cm. And that means it isn't a 50 litre drum like mine. It's a 36 litre drum which makes it a 6kg back in 2015. Big difference. The only...

    The wet shaving thread

    I picked up one of their razors recently. For Rs.39 it is a disposable one. Meaning you can't change the blade. Gilette has a plastic one which allows to replace the blade. I've used it for several years now and quite like it. I tried one of their shaving balms and its similar to the biotique...

    Union Budget 2019: Highlights, Key Takeaways; (TE members, What were your expectations???)

    Question still stands. Rupee dropped to seventy and has since hovered in the mid to high 60s as the RBI bought dollars stabilise the exchange rate. Did our economy contract by 40% odd ? or how much would you say it has since contracted due to a weaker rupee if at all. The same question applies...

    Best Vacuum Robots available in India

    I looked at these a while ago an they depend on being able to move around without obstructions. This means you have to rearrange the house for these things to work well. Since i didn't want to do that i just got broom and a decent mop with additional heads.

    Anyone here (or your wife, mom) using Instant Pot for Indian Cooking ?

    I'm noticing people say that recipes for Instant Pot aren't easily transferable to Preeti unless you know what settings to change. Instead there are other "clones" of instant pot that aren't stupidly exorbitant and are compatible with these recipes. https://www.amazon.in/dp/B07N68GCSH

    Union Budget 2019: Highlights, Key Takeaways; (TE members, What were your expectations???)

    I didn't miss it, i pointed it out because it seemed absurd to me that UNTIL NOW the military had to pay duty on arms. 1563011081 I am questioning GDP in dollar terms and whether it makes any sense. Some time in Oct '13 the Rupee slides from 50 to 70 in a day. You mean to tell me our total...

    SG's done a good job explaining this The part where he says govt has stopped charging import duty on purchased arms !!! We only get to learn about this because this year it will not be charged. I wonder why. We paid $10bn for 36 Rafales. Is it one time only or resumes next year. S-400 will...

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

    If the rupee strengthens over the dollar we get there sooner. If the dollar were Rs.50 instead of 70, we would be $5 trillion already. The govt estimates the dollar will be around 75 in 2024 though. Will it be that though ? The govt is trying to get foreign govts to invest in debt with...

    Union Budget 2019: Highlights, Key Takeaways; (TE members, What were your expectations???)

    I was wondering whether they consulted Congress for this budget No change in tax slabs means they definitely do not listen to Subramaniam Swamy when he says they should get rid of income tax. I note how the stock market fell when this budget came out. Why is that. Usually we are used to seeing...
