I want to show you the headlines of some international newspapers on the 15th of December this year.
Above is The Washington Post and below is The Guardian
The world talked about Delhi CM calling the Prime Minister a “psychopath”. I think that Kejriwal was actually lucky that he was in India, had he been in Iran he would have gotten 74 lashes.
It’s not only Iran that gives such harsh punishments for insulting the ruler. There are many more countries which give following sentences like:
Kuwait- Permanent Exile
Venezuela and Poland- Upto 3 years in prison
Turkey- 4 years in prison
Netherlands and Indonesia- 5 years in prison
Bahrain- 7 years in prison
Thailand- A man recently faced 37 years in prison for insulting the King’s dog.
Azerbaijan- 2 years of “corrective labour”
Lebanon- Upto Rs. 50 lakh fine
In India ‘Democracy without Discipline’ is becoming the norm of the day. Ever since Modi government has come into power there is a splurge in people’s indiscipline (against Modi). Anyone can say anything and Anyone can do anything without any respect or dread. Kejriwal using such foul language for the PM of India has held our country in shame and sadly he can get away with it in the name of “democracy”. I strongly believe that democracy should also be disciplined. What about you? Do share your views.

Steve Jobs was adopted- He was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs even though he always says “They (Paul and Clara Jobs) are 1000% my real parents”
His biological father was Syrian- His fathers name was Abdulfattah Jandali and that basically means that he was also half-Syrian.
He made the famous game Atari Breakout– He made the game Atari Breakout which I also mentioned in my other post saying that whenever you type “Atari Breakout” in google images this game always comes up.
He lied to Steve Wozniak- When they made Atari Breakout, Wozniak and Jobs were going to split the pay 50-50. Atari gave Jobs $5000 to do the job. He told Wozniak that he got $700 so Wozniak took home $350 and Steve Jobs went with $4,650
He never wrote a single line of code during his term at Apple
He never ate any non vegetarian food except fish and was a Zen Buddhist.
He threw the prototype of the iPod into an aquarium to prove that there were air bubbles and it could be made slimmer.
His attention to detail- In January 2008 he called up Google’s vice president of engineering Vic Gundotra saying
So Vic, we have an urgent issue, one that I need addressed right away. I’ve already assigned someone from my team to help you, and I hope you can fix this tomorrow. I’ve been looking at the Google logo on the iPhone and I’m not happy with the icon. The second O in Google doesn’t have the right yellow gradient. It’s just wrong and I’m going to have Greg fix it tomorrow. Is that okay with you?

I bought the Apple Watch in May this year from the United States as it hadn’t released in India then. And I have noticed that in the past few days the interest of people in smart watches has started to grow, mostly because of the release of the Moto 360 2nd Generation (What!! You haven’t heard about it?).
First of all I start off with 4 reasons to buy a smart watch
All your messages and phone calls will be picked up from your smart watch, no need to pull out your bulky smartphone or even carry it in your hands.
They have great bluetooth range and you can use it even if you are at your neighbours house or away from your workstations.
Excellent feature for finding your phone by a ping which will make your smartphone beep.(So the thief can be caught easily)
Make your boss jealous- Print from your smart watch from your boss’s room, he will gape at you in awe. (Be trendy and style icon in your office)
Great for girls as they don’t have to search their ‘mysterious bag’ for their phone.
Fitness Tracker- Following the release of Fitbit, everybody has started wearing a fitness tracker and actually everybody loves it, well… it just goes to a whole new level as the smart watches are fully packed with motion sensors, heart sensors and almost everything you have in a fitness tracker.
It makes you stand out from the crowd.
They are getting cheaper- If you want a fitness tracker you will get it for about Rs.13,000 while smart watch prices start from Rs.16,000.
Note: I shall only be talking about the 42mm Apple Watch and the 42mm Moto 360 2nd generation
Customization: You get various types of straps in the Apple Watch
Like this special edition from Hermes
While you can totally customize the Moto 360 2nd Gen
The Apple has three different types of models-
It isn’t a replacement of mobile, you still need a mobile to operate it. And the Apple Watch doesn’t support Android devices whereas, the Moto 360 supports both Android and Apple devices.
