I had been looking for a microphone that can record clear audio with noise reduction. I wanted one that I can connect to my laptop, to be used for video calls and webinars. Good quality microphones don’t come cheap, so it will be great if the same could be used with my iPad Pro or Samsung Phone for recording videos capturing crisp audio. I didn’t feel like investing for the Pro condenser microphones used by popular podcasters as they were expensive and I don’t see myself using them that often.

Prelude Home entertainment has come a long way from the days of having (say) Orson Colour TVs and VCRs to the state of the art Smart-TVs.

The shortcomings with the phone were signal quality and the speakers. Last month, I noticed in Flipkart an offer for a new phone – Samsung…

In India, horn sound chases you everywhere, even in the malls. You don’t get respite from it.

P.S.: I created this amateur video for fun in a few minutes with the “Video Editor / Photos” that comes OOB with #Windows10.
