I had been thinking of upgrading to the iPhone XS for a while now because I was ready to accept the notch life and get some more screen real estate. I’m glad I didn’t. I was in the US last month long enough that I was able to get myself a (PRODUCT)RED™ iPhone 11 and an Apple Watch Series 5. After more than a month of daily use, I’m ready to sum up my thoughts in this iPhone 11 review.Read more
It was September 2018. I was patiently hoping to get my hands on a new Apple Watch Series 4. My Apple Watch Series 0 had been serving me very well, but it was showing its ages. The battery life, the low-resolution display compared to the latest ones, and lack of GPS prompted me to get the newly launched Apple Watch Series 4.
So, I walked into an Apple Store in September 2019 and got myself an Apple Watch Series 5. I mean, it’s not my fault I had to leave the country before I could get my hands on a Series 4. Besides, always-on display sounds fancy, even though it’s something a watch should have by default.

The professor in the class was talking about how the film industry came out to be. We were watching some of the first films that were commercially released by Lumiere Brothers.
At one point, he said that people were blown away by watching motion pictures on the screen. Some even left the theater in fear when an oncoming train was shown on the display. It was so magical that the actual magicians’ business began to take a nosedive.
The keyword here is ‘magical.’
That led me to think, what ‘magical’ invention have I seen in my lifetime? And will there be any more?
I can’t answer the second question, but I think I know the answer to the first one.Read more
