Couple of days back I posted about the upcoming big sale day on flipkart called as the Big Billion Day. Today is the day and if you were not ready for it, you missed buying Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 for 1400 Rs….Yes 1400 rs, a discount of 90 %. News papers also list(via flipkart ad) that they will have 2TB ADATA HDD for 600 rs(90% discount). There are lots of other discount offers and exchange

Even IMDB rates it to 9/10 with 5,664 votes(and counting). I literally had to sit through it for 3 hours since i had paid. The only beauty in the movie is the snow clad Kashmir.

For a person with limited linguistic capabilities, watching a film of an unknown language with subtitles can be an ordeal. More so if the film has been rated a lot, but after viewing it, turns out to be flop. I rarely venture into watching films of languages I don’t know, unless it had been appreciated by the critics. Another such movie which I had reviewed previously was Hemlock Society. Bangalore Days, mind you, is not

At the beginning of this year, flipkart had been instrumental in launching the Moto G smartphone by Motorola. Those abreast with updates in the tech world, know how they sold those hot cakes. It was one of the best smartphones for that price point and it seemed to have throttled the necks of the budding newbies of the smartphone industry in India.

All being taken care of by Singham and his team of vest clad policemen. And then there

The Goofed Up case of two “Exclusive” launches

We got our first Television in the 80s and were instantly hooked to it. Soaps, epics, news, films, sports and such proved to be thrilling and entertaining. But of all these, advertisements captured our imagination the most. 20 seconds of quick burst of the most vividly colorful, imaginative and sometimes, unknown to us, fake entertainment. At times, a film would be so boring that we would be waiting for the Ads to be played for
