The obsession over 10,000 steps

The Obsession over 10,000 steps

With the advent of smartwatches, the obsession over the ‘no of steps’ one has completed in a day has hit the roof. More and more people are looking to the “Fitbit’s” and the “iWatch’s” in the hope of ensuring they reach the magic ‘10,000’ step mark. It seems as though fitness and having an active lifestyle is now being defined by the number of steps one completes in a day.

Devices like these have definitely ensured that fitness has probably become more mainstream than it ever was. What started from pedometers has moved on to smart devices, apps and even competitions for fitness. All of it has further emphasized that a good fitness regimen is the secret of a happy life.

5 reasons am thankful for technology..

5 reasons am thankful for technology..

Whether we accept it or not, the technology at our disposal has made our world a smaller place in more ways than one. While there are positives and negatives for everything, I would still like to think positively as far as technology is concerned.

Skype, Facebook, WhatsApp, Weibo, Tencent, WeChat, Vkontakte, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and what not have provided us more ways than one to keep in touch with our near and dear ones. They help us remember and understand the likes, dislikes, where our loved ones are going, what they are doing and everything else happening in their lives. While on one hand, this may reflect on intruding someone’s privacy, on the other hand, this does play a role in bringing people closer whether in love, friendship or family relations. As they say “distance makes the heart grow fonder”.

Review: Nokia Lumia 620

Nokia

It’s been sometime since Nokia joined hands with Windows to come out with phones having the Windows OS. The first series of phones with Windows 7 and 7.5 didn’t do too well. There were issues of every kind and Nokia was slowly but surely moving towards disaster. Then came the Windows 8 series enabled phones beginning with Lumia 920 and 820. Lumia 920 has garnered great attention throughout the world with its specs and particularly the amazing camera it has. But the critics were still out saying that Nokia needed to come out with affordable Lumia’s for markets like India and China which are the fastest growing on the planet.

Lumia 620 is the first in the range of the affordable Lumia handsets. So what all does it have? If you are not looking at the black colour, at first glance you would surely notice the colourful back cover. This is the first Lumia handset which comes with changeable back covers (Cyan, Lime Green, Black, White, Magenta, Yellow). The screen size is quite handy at 3.81 inches. It packs a 5MP primary camera and a 1.2 MP secondary camera. This camera is quite good for this price range (Rs 14,200) that is if you are not looking at Indian models like Micromax, Karbonn etc like me. It provides you all the features like Panorama, Face Detection, Multiple Shots, Auto Focus with touch etc.

RIP Nokia – A Personal Experience!

Seven years ago when I entered graduation, my father handed me the first mobile phone of my life. It was not a really great phone in terms of the ones we see today. There wasn’t any camera, MP3 player, 3G etc. It was just a normal Nokia phone which could be used to do the basic functions like making a call, using the GPRS, sending an SMS etc. Since then a lot has changed in the world of Nokia as its market share in India plummeted from about 90% to 30-35% today. But nothing changed in my world of mobile phones until a week back.

Nokia built its reputation by always being ahead of its competition. Whether it was making personalized phones like the Nokia 1100 for India or connecting people in any way, Nokia was the name which was synonymous. It had become a generic name so much so that whenever people used to go to mobile shops, they would say “Please give me a Nokia” rather than saying “Please give me a phone.” That was then.
