Elon Musk outlines Tesla’s master plan to dominate Uber and the world

When it comes to moonshots, it doesn't get bigger than Elon Musk. Many consider Musk to be the real-life Iron Man, betting on things no one else would only because he felt it was required for the betterment of humankind. Take Tesla Motors, the company he founded after selling Paypal, to make electric cars when mainstream car makers failed to sell them. He is betting on solar energy, where he hopes every household would have its own personal electricity generation grid. Now that Musk has shown the world that Tesla can make and sell gorgeous and powerful electric cars apart from landing a stage one rocket back on ground for reuse, Musk is taking his ambition to the next level and has outlined the master plan for Tesla for the next decade.

Xiaomi Mi Max Review: Gulliver in the land of Lilliputs

Xiaomi Mi Max Review: Gulliver in the land of Lilliputs

There are a few things that anyone should absolutely never ever do. Like mixing soda in a fine single malt whisky. Or reaching an Indian wedding on time. Or trusting Bangalore's traffic. Or using a phone that's bigger than your face. The Xiaomi Mi Max barely makes the cut for the last thing in my 'never to do' list. More →

Kindle Oasis review: Just another perfect (and pricey) Kindle

Let me begin with a question to existing Kindle owners. Have you, ever since you have bought your Kindle, felt the need to upgrade? Well, chances are that your answer is No. And, Amazon is desperately trying to turn that answer into a Yes. E-book readers are a niche category, and with every new release Amazon is trying to make the Kindle more aspirational (and their pricing sure seems to reflect that).

YU Yunicorn first impressions: A new beginning

YU is one of the newest smartphone brands, barely 18-months-old. Launched as Micromax's answer to Xiaomi, YU has had its share of hits and misses. Its last flagship smartphone, the Yutopia, was a stunner when it came to hardware and design but was let down by its software. However, the brand has moved on and launched the Yunicorn, which goes on sale today exclusively on Flipkart. I have been using the Yunicorn for the last few days and here are my first impressions.

Ola’s big problem: It doesn’t care about its users or drivers

Ola’s big problem: It doesn’t care about its users or drivers

If you were on a night out in Bangalore yesterday and were relying on Ola and Uber to get back home, you would probably resonate with what comes next. It was pouring and hailing a cab was next to impossible. There were no Ubers on the road and trying to book an Ola was a bad case of fastest fingers first -- cabs would disappear before you could go through the three steps required to book one. But more than the vanishing cabs, it revealed what a safety and financial nightmare Ola can be if you happen to get stuck with the wrong driver. I found it out first hand last night and realized I wasn't the only one. My nightmare started when I finally managed to book an Ola cab at around10PM and like they say, you won't believe what happened next. More →
