Why I hate the new MacBook Pro 2016 model

I bought 2015 Retina Macbook pro in 2017 because of all these issues. Why I hate 2016 Macbook pro: The technology offered by the new Macbook pro 206 is not disruptive in any way. They are offering USB C ports and want to push us to that technology. Am I supposed to carry all the dongles and compatibility devices just to plug in all my devices? The new apple logo looks like a blot on the surface of the device. The previous apple glowing logo used to create an aura and an awe. Battery life is not great! They installed a smaller battery assuming that the Skylake processors would be energy efficient. This falls flat and the battery is unpredictable. The touch bar is pretty useless. If they had introduced a touchscreen, I would have bought it, but nopes, not done. Keyboard felt lifeless and I just did not like the haptic response. No Magsafe? Seriously? Also, they re-introduced MacBook pro text at the bottom of the display screen. It is just distracting.  What is the need for such a big tr…

Why I bought a MacBook Pro

(*Representative image) (Note: This is my personal opinion and I do not wish to slander any company or it's products.)
I have heard enough from people around me - What a waste of money! Was this necessary at all? Blasphemy! and what not!

Let me digress why I chose a Macbook pro, especially 2015 13inch retina display, and after a week's use, feel I had made a very good decision.

I have had my fair share of experience with all kinds of devices. My first mobile phone was an android device Galaxy pop from Samsung. I loved it for its features. There were tons of apps, even a flight radar app, and I was simply amazed. It went well for a year after which the company stopped producing it and dropped supporting the phone. Slowly it started lagging, battery life became pathetic and was prone to heating issues. While the world was running Android Icecream Sandwich, I was still on Froyo.

Even at that time, apple products were really famous and I used to snigger at apple fans and used to t…

How to keep up with Current affairs

When I was a child, people used to tell me to inculcate a ‘Good Habit’ — Reading newspapers.

Those people who were applying for Government jobs and civil services were advised to meticulously digest lots of information from the newspapers.



Well, as I grew up, I got to know that I live in an era of disinformation and Media and News outlets are the worst source of information — Propaganda, lies, yellow journalism, and what not!

And may god save those who still follow this rubbish.

Recently I took a glance at Civil services examination newspaper. I found the toughest papers to be easier and I myself was amazed at the depth of knowledge I had of the subjects.

So how did I gain such a knowledge without ever reading a single newspaper article?

Here are the tools:

Time Management

THE MOST IMPORTANT SKILL IN EACH AND EVERYONE'S LIFE - TIME MANAGEMENT!
Once upon a time, I took to PC gaming for stress busting purposes and started to play Warcraft, a very addictive game. Slowly I got addicted to gaming so much that one day I played the game for 5 hours flat! I realized too much time has been wasted on this and I could not complete some critical tasks. 
I felt awful about the wasted time which could not be brought back at any cost. I was pondering over my loss of not doing important tasks on time and delaying them until the last minute and completing them under tremendous pressure. 
I realized my mistake and wanted to spring back to my feet. I started my research on Time Management. I started practicing it and now I feel super productive and really great in my work and in my life.
After trying all the methods and testing them, I am presenting the same here in a nutshell:
First, I highly recommend my blog viewers to watch the following video:

Modern art vs Real art

vs 

















A few years ago, there was a huge craze for so-called 'Modern Art.' 
Modern Sculpture, Modern Painting, what not.

I started seeing too much about this stupidity in Mumbai, Hyderabad, etc.,

Modern Art  My definition: It looks bizarre, abnormal and does not involve any talent.

Take a look at these for yourself and judge:



This picture is of 'veiled lady' sculpture, a replica present at Salar Jung Museum.

I was stunned by its beauty because, at first look, the statue seemed as if there is a thin cloth draped on a woman's face.
It is pure solid marble!

This, I feel, is pure talent and I have not seen such a stunning art again. Probably this is from Rennaissance period.







What do you term this?  Even a child can do something better than this!












This is a painting -->



What is this? ->


Ugly, warped and depressing!

Maybe a stuff for so-called 'Intellectuals' but for sane people, bull shit!

Wikiwand - A very useful tool for a fabulous Wikipedia experience

There is no need to stress on the utility of Wikipedia. I am an avid Wiki reader and not a single day passes without me opening the website.

Somewhere I came across Wikiwand and tried it. Amazing! It became so handy and helpful to me that I decided to write a small post about it so that the readers can benefit from it.

Wikiwand - This Chrome extension tool is fantastic. It gives me an amazing experience while reading




The best and most useful feature of this tool is that if I hover my cursor on any hyperlink related to Wikipedia, a small preview window comes into view displaying a short description from the parent article.



This feature reduces the effort to look up each and every unknown term and is immensely useful.
