Black Friday sale For The IPhone 15 In India

The iPhone 15 is available with a Rs 8,000 discount offer, which is great because Apple launched it just 3 months back in India. As part of the Black Friday sale, the iNvent store is currently giving two offers on the latest iPhone, which effectively brings down the price of the iPhone 15 to Rs 71,900. Here are the details about the iPhone 15 deal and whether you should consider buying it or not. Before we get into the deal, it is important to note that iNvent is Apple’s authorised seller.

On iNvent store’s website, the iPhone 15 is currently listed with a starting price tag of Rs 76,900, which is down from its original price of Rs 79,900. This means that customers are getting a flat discount of Rs 3,000 on the site.

But, do keep in mind that this iPhone 15 discount offer is visible only on the black colour model.

The iPhone 15 is a great phone that you can buy right now if you can afford to spend around Rs 72,000 in India. It comes with a new 48-megapixel camera system with support for 4K Cinematic mode, a faster chipset, a new punch-hole display design, and a USB-C port.

Drupal : An Alternative To WordPress As A Blogging Platform

Among all CMSs, Drupal is often considered one of the highest-performing options. This open-source blogging software can support high-traffic websites with many pages. It has built-in performance features, like cache management and bandwidth optimization. These functions can boost your website speed and reduce bounce rates.

Drupal is also extensible. Its vast library of modules and themes offers complete control over your blog’s customization. That said, Drupal typically requires some technical expertise to maximize its features. To set up a Drupal blog, get a custom domain and a Drupal hosting service with a one-click installer. Once installed, you can change the website’s appearance, create your first article, or set up taxonomies to categorize your content.

The football club Arsenal uses Drupal to run its website, which includes a regularly-updated news section.

Key Features

  • Advanced taxonomy system. Create a custom classification to categorize your blog posts and pages. This feature is most useful for large-scale blogs and news publications.
  • Core contact form module. You can set up the user email to receive the messages and enable automatic replies.
  • Advanced user management. Define specific roles for different users, what actions they can perform, and what content they can access. If you have multiple contributors, this feature ensures smooth content collaboration.
  • Tight protection. Drupal security follows strict coding standards and a rigorous community review process to prevent cyber threats.
  • Over 40,000 modules. Yoast is available as a Drupal module to optimize the website for search engines. There are also other options to integrate social media, sell online, notify you of new comments, and more.


  • Steep learning curve. Like Joomla, Drupal is ideal for those with web development experience. Its advanced taxonomy system can be challenging to master.


Drupal is a free blog platform, though you will need a hosting service and domain to use it.

Since it is more suitable for a blog with multiple users and a sizeable content library, consider getting Hostinger’s Business plan. At Rs.269/month, it comes with a free domain, 200 GB NVMe storage, unlimited bandwidth, and free CDN to optimize your website performance.

Looking For A Drop In Prices

Black Friday & Diwali sales and discounts are around us and though many are going for phones and tvs or computers, I basically just want a 2TB external hard drive. I have a lot of files that I save onto my computer and then I move them onto hard drives that I have with me. I currently have 5 external hard drives with me. Two 2 TB drives and 3 1 TB drives. I have two older 1 tb drives that have since died on me; they were bought way back in 2007 and 2008 respectively.

Photos, images, wallpapers, mp3s, videos I shoot, movies and tv show – anything and everything that I save, I will first save it on my laptop’s drive and then move it into folders on these hard drives. Now, I do have quite a bit of space on two of these drives but 1 of those are specifically for a certain type of file, hence I am trying to only save those onto that particular 2 TB hard drive. So if I have more of the other types of files, I save them onto the other drive.

Problem is I am not seeing any good offers of late on either Flipkart or Amazon. I have been checking almost on a daily basis. Nothing that seems to be a good discount. Infact the amounts have only fallen briefly for a short amount and then it seems to be back up and staying so. I will wait a few more day and see what happens.

Should I Get The Samsung Galaxy S9 Fe Plus Tab?

I have never owned a tablet pc myself, though for almost 2 years I did have an ipad given to from the company I currently work for. It was good, though with so many restrictions ofcourse. But I have never owned one. Now I don’t make the kind of money to justify having a laptop and a secondary device like a desktop or tab but I am tempted when I see some new models come out. And if I could afford and go for one, it seems to be this Samsung Galaxy S9 FE tab.

Samsung’s latest big-screen tablet is practically in a league of its own. The new 12.4-inch Galaxy Tab S9 FE Plus (released alongside the 10.9-inch Tab S9 FE) is here to make many tablet owners be envious. Samsung packed the Galaxy Tab S9 FE Plus with phenomenal battery life, and made sure the display and sound quality were good enough for a $600 slate. One of the most annoying parts of owning a tablet is that moment when you pick it up only to discover its battery is empty and needs a charge. Fortunately, the Galaxy Tab S9 FE Plus packs a lot of endurance with its 10,090mAh lithium-ion battery.

Battery test have shown that the battery lasts well. This isn’t the only place the FE Plus beats its similarly priced competitors, as it also offers both facial recognition and fingerprint identification. While the Tab S9 FE Plus may be too big for some give Samsung credit for offering a larger tablet at a midrange price. The $600 12.4-inch Galaxy Tab S9 FE Plus is much more affordable than Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which starts at a whopping $1,099, and that’s without a stylus. Prices in India start at Rs 56,999.

Spotify Has Made It Difficult For Indian Subscribers Of Their Free Plan

Spotify is applying new restrictions on users who listen to music on the streaming service’s free plan in India. The company has started to place limits on how users on the free plan can play tracks, including the ability to choose the order in which songs are played on the streaming platform. The move is part of the Swedish company’s attempt to turn its large userbase in the company that is currently on the ad-supported free tier to paying subscribers. As part of a recent update that rolled out earlier this week, Spotify has begun to restrict how users on the free plan will be able to access music via the platform.

Users will not be able to turn off the “Smart Shuffle” playlist option, play songs in any order, or use the traditional shuffle option without a Spotify Premium subscription. In addition to the limitations placed on the track order, Spotify will also prevent users from “scrubbing” tracks. This means that once a song has started to play, users won’t be able to go back to a specific part of the track — or tap the back button to go to the start of the track. They will also need a Premium subscription to play a song on repeat.

These new restrictions appear to have rolled out to users widely over the week, with users complaining about the change on X (formerly known as Twitter) and commenting on the company’s Instagram posts. Gadgets 360 was able to confirm that the limitations have been enabled on Spotify for Android after updating to the latest version. As per the Music Ally report, India is in Spotify’s list of top 5 countries — with regard to monthly active users. While the percentage of Indian users who pay for a Premium subscription is reportedly higher than other regions, the country is not one of the most profitable regions for Spotify.

In India, users can purchase automatically renewing Spotify Premium plans starting at Rs. 119, or opt for prepaid plans instead that start at Rs. 129. The former is slightly more cost effective on a monthly basis, while the annual prepaid Premium subscription offers a considerable discount — at Rs. 1,189 — compared to the free plan, which would cost Rs. 1,428. Spotify also offers smaller plans that start at Rs. 7 per day, called Spotify Premium Mini — this plan limits the benefits of the subscription to the mobile apps.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE Is A Good Buy From Flipkart

The ‘Fan Edition’ or FE series from Samsung was designed to offer enthusiast users flagship-grade smartphone features at mid-range prices. Samsung nailed it with the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, leaving not a lot of room for improvement. In 2022 year, we had the follow-up FE smartphone called the Galaxy S21 FE 5G. Samsung launched the Galaxy S21 FE 5G in two variants, with 128GB of storage for Rs. 54,999 and 256GB of storage for Rs. 58,999. Both variants have 8GB of RAM. Samsung had offers of Rs.5000 cash back at that time.

No, October 2023 is the month that Flipkart has their Big Billion Sale & Amazon India has their Great India Festival. The former is now on sale at the price of Rs. 29,999 which is what I usually prefer to pay for a smartphone. This phone looks like an extension of the Galaxy S21 series thanks to the ‘contour-cut’ shape of the rear camera module. Samsung offers features that most fans want in their FE phones while leaving out certain aspects they do not care about. With S21 FE, Samsung has emphasised on three aspects – display, camera, and performance. At this discounted price it is a great deal and you can buy it.


  • Excellent display
  • Versatile cameras
  • Good performance
  • Priced very decently
  • Can play most games but for the high intensity ones it can a bit heated


  • Average battery life

Boat Stone 1200F Bluetooth Speakers

My current BlueTooth speakers which is a Boat Stone one that I bought over 3 years ago, is having some issues.

I decided that it is time to replace it and I placed an order for the Boat Stone 1200F which is what you see here. It looks so cool, that I can’t wait. I will get it tomorrow.

When Is It O.K. To Replace Human Limbs With Technology?

When Is It O.K. to Replace Human Limbs With Technology?

When is it ok to replace human limbs with technology? When the original limb has to be amputated. I am all for using technology to aid humans. Science – it works bitches! – when a massive catastrophe happens and you need to have one of your limbs taken away from you. To date, most robotic-powered prostheses are in the early stages of development, and the research prototypes have yet to be translated into commercial applications. However, once they do reach clinical viability, they could prove genuinely life changing.

The need for these kinds of devices is not in doubt. Millions of people around the world live with limb loss, often due to diabetic neuropathy or trauma. Around 185,000 amputations are performed annually in the US, along with 431,000 in Europe. For these patients, their quality of life will depend to a large degree on the quality of their prosthetic devices. Traditional passive prostheses may give them some mobility, but they can’t restore natural muscle function and often end up restricting the person’s activity levels.

Five WordPress Tips For Beginners

Choose Your Hosting

This covers a wide range of tips in itself, but finding the right hosting provider for your WordPress site is absolutely essential for success. Without hosting, your site can’t go live on the internet. That’s not the only reason it’s important. Your hosting provider needs to give you enough resources to handle your site traffic, avoid crashes and downtime as much as possible, and give you fast site speeds. First, you need to find the right hosting plan for your site – there are several different types, with different levels of features. There are WordPress specific hosting plans, which will make setting up and running your site easier.

Watch Theme Demos

When you’re choosing your theme, it’s a good idea to make use of theme demos. This way, you can view a theme – and sometimes even try it out – before committing to it. Your theme forms the basis of your website’s design, so it’s important to choose one that you like, that suits your project, and that you will actually enjoy using. Yes, you can customize WordPress, but unless you’re skilled in coding or are working with a developer, it’s sensible to start out with a suitable theme. Simply find a theme you like the look of, click “View Demo” or “Live Demo,” and you can see how it would look online. If you like the theme and decide to import it, you can then edit the demo content to make the theme truly your own!

Install an SEO Plugin

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is critical for the success of any website. Without SEO, your site won’t rank highly in the search results – not ideal for growing your audience! Unless you’re a real tech pro, and perhaps even then, you’ll probably need a helping hand with your SEO. Installing an SEO plugin can make your life much easier, and your site much more successful. These plugins can analyze your content and keywords, and manage all the technical stuff like sitemaps and robots.txt for you. Just go to the WordPress Plugin Directory and find an SEO plugin that suits you.

Pick Your Theme Carefully

There are tons of themes available for you to choose from, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the quantity. Our top tip is to be picky, and only look at quality themes. Always read the reviews, pick one that suits your project, and don’t be afraid to pay for a premium theme. It’s essential you pick a mobile-responsive theme – if you don’t, you’ll run into problems with Google down the line, and give your mobile users a poor online experience. Some themes come pre-packed with features. While this might be appealing, be careful – these themes can really slow your site speeds down, which is a big issue you really want to avoid. Be picky, be minimal, and in the end you should be happy with your theme. If not, don’t worry – you can easily switch later!

Stay Upated

You’ve probably heard of the famed WordPress updates, but what are they really all about? WordPress updates its software regularly to keep its platform secure. Minor updates occur around every two weeks, while major updates happen roughly once a month. You don’t need to worry too much over those minor updates – that’s just WordPress making tweaks and fixing little bugs. But you should check for updates regularly, to make sure you haven’t missed anything new – otherwise, your site can become outdated and vulnerable to nasty bugs. Simply go to your WordPress dashboard, where it’ll tell you if you need to update your plugins, themes, or version of WordPress. There’ll be handy “update now” buttons to keep things nice and easy. Always make sure to backup your site before updating, and again after you’ve finished.

Nine Facts About IQOO

IQOO is a phone brand under the BBK group heritage – that’s the same group behind the likes of OnePlus, Vivo, Oppo and Realme. Here are some details about their operations in India.

  1. iQOO is not just a random collection of letters. And no, it is not a different spelling of IQ (intelligence quotient). It actually stands for “I Quest On and On,” reflecting the brand’s commitment to keep improving.
  2. The Indian branch of the brand will be based in Bengaluru. That makes it the third major phone brand to be headquartered in the city many people call India’s Silicon Valley (Xiaomi and OnePlus are the other two at the time of writing).
  3. Initially seen as a sub-brand of Vivo, iQOO is, however, going to be an independent entity in India and globally. And this extends to everything from its product development to service centers and retail stores. Yes, it will even have separate service centers and will not be “leveraging” those of Vivo, a brand with which many associate it. “Vivo and iQOO are independent brands. We are competitors,” Gagan Arora, Director-Marketing, iQOO, told us.
  4. The brand will be launching its first phone in India in February 2020. Although details are scarce at the moment, we have been told it will be a global launch and will be the first phone in the Indian market to come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and support for 5G.
  5. The brand’s first phone was manufactured in India, using shared manufacturing facilities in Vivo’s plant in NOIDA, India, near the capital Delhi.
  6. iQOO’s team in India started with eighty people but we were told its size is likely to go up in the coming days. As of now it seems the company has around 200 employees.
  7. The brand is not focusing on a predominantly online or offline retail strategy. Although the brand mostly sells mainly online, it has also been made available in all channels. However Amazon seems to be the preferred destination to buy their products.
  8. India is the first market outside of China to get iQOO products. Not a bad start for the brand, and it is also wonderful to see brands getting into this mode.
  9. As per briefings in India, iQOO is going to be a brand that is going to be competing mainly on performance. “Best in class performance, perhaps the best in the industry,” Arora said, also indicating that the brand would be bringing a number of innovations to the Indian market.

Would You Be Willing to Pay for Facebook or Google in Exchange for Your Privacy?

That is a tough question. How much would they charge per month or year to safeguard my privacy? Just what does the to companies know about us?

“Google knows what you search for online, where you travel, what’s on your calendar, who you take photos of, who your contacts are, which ads you click on and what you buy. For a lot of you, that’s more than your spouse or partner knows. Facebook is the same, only it doesn’t have to guess based on your activity. You told the company. You put it on your profile and posted the photos of your family on vacation. You tagged the location and everyone in it.

Both Google and Facebook track everything within the ecosystem of their platform, and sometimes even once you leave. Facebook, for example, tracks which of their advertisers’ sites you visit after you leave their site, so it can serve you ads when you return. There’s no question that if most of us had any real concept of how much of our personal information was being captured and stored, we’d feel differently about whether it’s really worth it. – (from

So depending on the amount, I would be glad to pay – if it in Indian rupees and is very reseaonable and cost conciseness. Otherwise I will skip it for the time being.

Some Interesting & Fun Facts About Whatsapp

1.  WhatsApp Did Not Spend a Penny on Marketing and User Acquisition

Whatsapp founder Jan Koun and Brian Acton strongly disregard advertisements and which is why they neither did invest in the ad since the beginning of the app. Likewise they don’t have a marketing staff.

4.  More than 29 Million Messages are Sent Every Minute a Whatsapp

2018 was a productive year for WhatsApp and data shows that around 29 million messages are shared every minute by the users. This massive figure does not include images, videos, and audio recordings and complies only on text messages.

6 Facts About WordPress

1. WordPress is used by 35% of websites on the internet.

It’s hard to believe, but and Netcraft estimate that 35% of the web is powered by this previously obscure content management system. WordPress’ popularity is due to its exceptional adaptability, which enables it to be used in a wide range of settings, from tiny personal blogs to large corporations like Sony Music and With an estimated 1.3 billion active websites, this means that around 455 million websites use WordPress today.

2. For every month, there are an average of 700,000 fresh posts and 77 million fresh comments.

Over 2,333,333 new posts are made every day, 97,222 posts are made every hour, and 1,620 new posts are made every minute. With an average post length of 300 words, WordPress is generating about 500,000 words each minute. (source)

3. Every month, WordPress receives 487 billion spam messages.

The number of spam comments has increased dramatically during the previous few years. There were 6,208 times more spam comments created in a month than there were real ones, according to Akismet figures. A total of 487 billion spammers hit WordPress every day.

4. Every six months, WordPress registers more than 1.1 million new domain names.

WordPress is now powering an extra 1.1 million websites every six months, according to a worldwide internet CMS usage survey conducted in 2015. Users like the ease with which they may create an online presence. That number may be much over one million now, given the growth of WordPress’s market share since then.

5. 2,940,000 people search for WordPress per month.

WordPress is searched 2,940,000 times a month by individuals throughout the world using KWFinder, a reputable keyword-analysis tool that provides accurate data. Even if we included all relevant long-tail terms, the total search traffic would almost certainly increase dramatically.

6. WordPress dominates Google’s search engine results page with 2.28 billion results.

There are more than 2.2 billion results for “WordPress” on Google. For instance, a search for “sex” returns 5.11 billion results, which isn’t all that much more.

Six Ways to Declutter Your Windows PC

1. Search for and Remove Old Apps

Older, unused applications take up space on your drive that could be used for other purposes. On top of that, many applications–especially those that have not been updated recently–pose security threats. If you want to keep your machine running as smoothly as possible, take the time at least once a year to remove applications you have not used. Open Settings > Apps > Apps & features to see the list of currently-installed applications on your PC. You can sort by name, size, or install date. We recommend sorting by size. Since your digital spring cleaning is focused on efficiency, look at the largest programs you have installed.

2. Clean Up Your Browser

Your browser automatically stores cookies that can slow down your browsing experience. These cookies enable automatic logins on different websites, as well as form autocompletes. The browser also stores the cached version of different websites. Sure, while the content might change each time you visit Reddit, the images and specific settings do not. These are stored in your browser and load almost instantly. A cached version of a website hastens load times and reduces the amount of time you spend staring at progress bars. It’s good to clear your cache at least once a year, though. Not only does this eliminate many of the problems that arise from cached information (after all, one of the main troubleshooting tips is to clear your cache), but it also ensures you have the most recent versions of web pages and increases the performance of your PC.

To clear your browser in Chrome, click the three buttons in the top-right corner and click Settings. Click Clear browsing data and choose Cookies and other data and Cached images and files. Once you have chosen these two, click Clear data.

3. Delete Unnecessary System Files

Your system accumulates a variety of different files during operation. Some of these are related solely to the installation of an application and are never used again, while others are log files and error reports that are only valid until the next time you launch a program. The problem is that many of these files are never deleted. The good news is that Windows 10 has an integrated, built-in tool that helps you clear out these files and free up storage space. Open Settings System > Storage > Temporary files. This displays a list of all temporary files on your PC. You can choose between individual sections or select all of the files and delete them.

Select Temporary Internet Files and Temporary files and then click Remove Files at the top of the window. This will permanently delete these files, but don’t worry–any necessary files will automatically be generated and configured when you launch a program that needs it.

4. Clean Your Inbox

Every Spring-cleaning day has at least one task you don’t want to tackle. Maybe it’s the bathrooms, or maybe it’s that upstairs closet you haven’t opened in two years. In your digital life, this obstacle to getting your digital life organized is most likely your inbox. The ideal goal is to reach Inbox Zero, but if you have a limited amount of time just aim to delete older emails. Anything more than a year old is likely safe to delete. If older emails contain something you want to keep, download it to your computer. Your inbox has a limited amount of space, whether you host your own address or use a Gmail account. Deleting old emails and their attachments frees up space for new messages.

5. Run a Virus Scan

Another thing you should do is perform a virus and malware scan on your system. Often, the most harmful digital infections are those that don’t make a splash–they sit on your drive for weeks or months collecting information. Passwords, credit card numbers, and more can all be put at risk and you might never know until someone begins spending your money. If you don’t already run periodic virus scans, you should schedule one at least once per month. Perform both a virus scan and a malware scan on your PC as part of your digital cleaning. This will let you know if anything is hiding out in some dusty sector of your hard drive and help you remove it.

6. Update Your Software

It’s never a glamorous job and it can sometimes lead to more problems, but updating the Windows operating system and all of your hardware drivers is normally going to make things run smoother. With the big Windows updates that come out every 6 months (usually around April and October), it’s best to wait at least a month after the release before updating. Whatever issues and bugs are in the first release will usually all be fixed after a month or so. Updating your drivers is important as there manufacturers are always releasing updates to improve performance, compatibility and stability.

Take the chance this spring to straighten up your PC. You’ll find that it runs better, is easier to navigate, and safer to use. It doesn’t have to take long–most everything on this list can be accomplished in an hour or two.
