Piers Morgan takes a dig at Indian athletes, gets his fair share of trolling

Internationally acclaimed journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan is known for his outlandish opinions on the social media platforms. In a latest, the British journalist is making news on the internet for taking a dig at the Indian athletes at Rio Olympics 2016. He mocked the ‘overhype’ in celebration by India even though our delegates brought home ‘just 2 medals’. This all started a few hours ago, when Morgan took to his Twitter handle to retweet a post by @tariqvaidya about Indian celebrating the two medals the Indian athletes brought home, to which Morgan wrote in a repost, “Country with 1.2 billion people wildly celebrates 2 losing medals. How embarrassing is that?” More →

Reliance Jio: After Panasonic and Asus, Preview Offer now expanded to Micromax and YU smartphones

Earlier today, Reliance Jio expanded its ‘Preview Offer’ to Asus and Panasonic 4G-enabled smartphones. Now, the company also has also partnered Micromax and its sub-brand YU to make its next-gen high-speed 4G LTE and VoLTE voice calling service available to even more customers. The move makes perfect sense as Micromax has the second largest market share in India after Samsung. This will now only allow Reliance Jio to increase its reach more customers, but also enable the company to fine tune its network and services before the actual commercial launch takes place. The benefits under Preview Offer remain the same – unlimited HD voice calling, access to premium content on Jio suite of apps and unlimited downloads for 90 days from the date of activation. More →

On August 18, Uber announced a $300 million deal with Swedish car maker Volvo to develop fully driverless, or autonomous, cars by 2021; and also the acquisition of Otto, a San Francisco-based start-up focused on self-driving trucks. "We have been piloting a programme where friends and family of our Advanced Technology Centre team can request a self-driving car through the Uber app. It's still early days, but we are planning to expand this pilot to the Pittsburgh community," a Uber spokesperson told IANS in an email from San Francisco.

Prisma now works offline for iOS users, coming soon to Android

The app that took the world by a storm by its somewhat revolutionary photo editing skills, now has added a very important upgrade. Prisma’s latest update allows users to apply the art photo filters even without an internet connection. Which essentially means that Prisma users can now make their picture look like art in seconds, without needing to connect with the app’s servers. Users will now no longer need an internet connection to process their images and it would put an end to the constant to struggle to catch up with the app’s ‘almost always’ overloaded servers. However, it is important to note that the upgrade presently is only available for iOS users, and is expected to be rolled out on Android devices in a couple of weeks. More →
