    PiHole should be a must

    If it doesn't work on YT, then I don't think I would wanna waste 2.5k on it. Everything else is pretty much taken care of by adblock. AdGuard for Safari is currently working for YouTube ads, will see when it also stops working.

    PiHole should be a must

    Can anyone confirm that YouTube ads can be blocked with PiHole or not? A quick Google search tells me that its pretty hit or miss situation. The Youtube video ads are getting ridiculous day by day. Since yesterday, Adblock & Adbolck Plus extensions are also not able to block them.

    iOS Pros and Cons of using eSIM

    Public bank apps are garbage and HDFC is notorious for quality of its Tech operations. My main concern would be if PhonePe or PayTM stops working.

    Or use an app like Groww, PayTM Money or Zerodha. I personally like Groww the best due to its UI. They also don't charge any commission.

    Check the NAV value. It is the price of one unit.

    Govt is actively discouraging people from parking their funds in PF accounts by taxing contributions over 2.5lakhs per annum. Not sure if it is a good idea anymore.

    LIC plans are garbage. The only profits are made by the agents by making gullible boomers but their shitty Endowment/Annuity plans. My parents have one such plan set up in my name for 25yrs and now are asking me to pay the premium every year for the next 15yrs with a crappy return rate of 3.7%...

    INDMoney app allows for US Stocks purchase from India using DriveWeatlh. But the process is slow and expensive. Bank transfer itself costs about ₹1000+GST. Not worth unless you are investing in lakhs. Groww is also planning to launch US stocks so let's see how that goes.

    The main reason these cards are selling at these outrageous prices are because of these distributors like Acro in the first place. This is nothing but just a marketing stunt.

    iOS Iphone X worth it?

    The only thing that I would worry about in a used iPhone is the battery life. Replace the battery and you are good to go.
