“They say the early bird get the worm. Well, that’s exactly true for tech as well — The early adopter gets the bugs.”

Update season is just around the corner and much like Christmas, Diwali or Chinese New Year, you can feel it in the air.

Every tech media outlet is talking about the latest sneak-peek they got of the upcoming Windows 11 OS; all YouTubers marginally associated with electronics, have uploaded videos of them reviewing the leaked release. …

I am a meat eater. Quite a heavy meat eater, in fact. To me a week without meat of some form is a week of depravity. Still, I do not, as some might assume of meat eaters, relish in death, murder or torture. No, I prefer my meat freshly cooked, after having been killed in the most peaceful way imaginable.

Now I’ll be honest, the painless killing of animals is not something that usually occupies my mind. …

I love Lost. I loved it when I first watched it and I love it still. Let me tell you why:

The chief reason for my appreciation of the show is its characters. Now, I’m no full-time writer and I have little experience writing fiction so I cannot critique the show’s literary characteristics. But as a viewer, I can share my experience of the characters of Lost and my, are they all so well made.

The most important thing when it comes to choosing a laptop is value.

Don’t get swindled by retailers or laptop manufacturers just because you aren’t familiar with the cryptic lingo of tech.

I like the Catcher in the Rye. It’s a pretty good book.

The first time I picked it up was off a street vendor in New Delhi. I paid a hundred rupees for it. I didn’t like it much then. The main character, Holden, appeared too whiny and seemed to complain about every person he’d meet.
