I have written in the past about my experience using the various Android based Media Streaming devices like Firestick, Google Chromecast & NVIDIA Shield Player: the best player out there; and about a new SONY 43 inches Android TV I had bought. My son has a six-year-old Toshiba 46 Inches TV, he has an XBOX One connected to it, but he is missing streaming apps like Disney+ Hotstar on the platform, so he wanted me to get him an Android TV player. After looking around, I went with the new Nokia Media Streamer for Rs.2649 from Flipkart. The Nokia Media…

I know I am not their target customer. I am already an ecommerce addict. Even then, I find the “Big Billion Days Sale” or the “Great Indian Festival” to have gotten uninteresting to say it kindly. Having window-shopped on Amazon India & Flipkart I hardly found anything worth saving (by buying). If I am going to spend Rs.50,000 on a laptop, why am I going to be attracted by a Rs.500 discount? Or an Amazon Echo Show at Rs.5000 (MRP 8999), when no one will want one even for free. The market analysts might point this to be a healthy…

Studio light for indoor photographs and video recording In the past, we had our DSLR cameras to take pictures and when coupled with appropriate lenses they can take good photos whether used indoors (with powerful flashlights) or outdoors.

In the last few years, after smartphones stopped having earphone jacks, I have spent a fortune buying numerous Bluetooth earphones – some worked, many were average and a few were bad. Disclosure: I write reviews about products that I have bought for my usage and paid in full. There were no sponsorship or advertisement, or commission of any sort involved in this post.  Here is the list of ten earphones I have bought in recent years, the list is partial as I might have missed a few: Jabra Elite 65: I lost one of the earpieces first and then the…

My wife has been using Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2, she likes the phone and enjoys the fine display and extra loud audio. Last week, the fingerprint sensor in the back started heating up, it was so hot, you can’t even touch it. Worried for the safety, I gave it for service to the local Asus service centre who are charging Rs.6200 to change the entire front-panel and circuitry. While waiting for the Asus Max Pro to get repaired, I purchased a new phone for her – Samsung Galaxy M31s from Amazon India for Rs.19,500. I wanted something midrange with…
