Purchased A New Phone

Me, the guy who did not like to spend more than Rs.15k or so on mobile phones has just bought a phone that’s worth Rs.33,000.

Me, the guy who said he didn’t think that his phone should cost more than his laptop just bought a Rs.33,000 phone and his little-over-2 year old laptop was Rs.23,000 when he bought it (and with discount got it for Rs.21,000)

I have never unsecured cash loan bought anything this expensive since my motorbike back in 1994. I always looked for lower end phone or mid-level phone around the Rs.12,000-Rs.15,000 range. When I bought a BlackBerry Bold in 2013 for Rs.17k, I almost screamed inside me.

Times bad credit unsecure loan have changed and I have been thinking for well over a year that I would like a good flagship phone. And this one, the OnePlus 5T is known as the flagship killer. It comes in two variants – 64GB and 6GB RAM one and the more expensive 8GB and 128GB RAM one. I bought the former. In midnight black colour.

I wanted white (keeping with the colour trend for the past three phones I have had) but they were out of them. Then there is the lava red colour but it only comes in the more expensive variant and I can’t fine the Star Wars (in white) variant as well but then I wouldn’t want that either. So black it is.

Stay tuned for an unboxing soon.

Firefox Quantum Updated

Well will you look at that – there is life in the old girl. 11-12 years ago I switched over to Mozilla Firefox and vowed never to switch back to Internet Explorer. I loved Firefox and it has always been a really good browser to use but then I started using Google Chrome and it felt better and more flexible and faster than Firefox. Oh dear, what to do?

So for many, many years now I have been using both at home and at the office. At home I open both browsers and open up various tabs on each to go to various things I wanna see online. Though my current process at work works solely on Chrome so I end up using that a lot more. But now and then at work I will try to get online using Firefox if I feel like using the old familiar. This early morning as I switched on my laptop and started up Firefox she updated automatically to the latest version.

Mozilla claims its updated web browser is twice as fast as its last one, and uses a lot less memory than the competition—Google Chrome in particular. It’s called Firefox Quantum, and it might give the web’s most popular web browser a run for its money. Firefox Quantum is twice as fast as the previous build of Firefox, according to the company’s benchmark tests comparing Quantum to both Chrome and the previous version of Firefox. Its memory tests showed a noticeable decrease in memory usage compared to Google Chrome on Windows 10 and Linux; on macOS 10.12, memory usage was pretty much the same.

Try it out.
