I installed the Windows Phone 8.1 update on my Nokia Lumia 720 last night.
The whole process took around 2 hours including the download. I like the new
features quite a bit, especially the action centre (the notification panel) &
the swipe keyboard that I’m using to compose this post.
The animations also seem to have been speeded up a la iOS 7.1, and this makes
the phone feel snappier than before. The Windows Store seems to be acting up
at times though. Hopefully it’s just a temporary glitch given the extensive
overhaul of the store.
The online reviews seem to be positively glowing this time around and there
are no real gaps in the core OS functionality compared to Android or iOS.
Windows Phone now offers the smooth and polished experience of iOS with many
of the useful features of Android in an affordable package. Here’s hoping
to a strong year for Windows Phone. H... (more)

I recently ported my Reliance CDMA connection to Airtel GSM, and this called
for a change of handsets. I was using a Samsung Galaxy Pop CDMA with
Reliance, along with a Galaxy S III as my primary internet device. My
requirements for the new phone were quite simple:
Good battery life since this was to be my primary phone for voice – the
Galaxy Pop used to serve me for 2-3 days (without a mobile data connection
though) Price around Rs 15,000 Smooth and reliable performance
Given the above constraints, Windows Phones seemed to be the way to go, and
also give me some platform diversit... (more)
I came away pretty disappointed with the ambitious project of a film that had
worked up a lot of curiosity following its promos. The inexperience of the
film crew for such a project was evident from the movie length (2 ½ hours!),
editing (particularly action sequences) and cinematography (too many
close-ups). As for the Bunyip (incidentally an Australian myth rather than
African), it turned out to be more of a ROUS (Rodent Of Unusual Size).
Better luck next time.

Answer by Mayank Singh Shishodia:
Here are some of the best natural phenomena that occur on Earth.
The spooky light is created by a chemical reaction called
“bioluminescence”, which happens when tiny organisms in the water are
disturbed. The photographer put his camera on a very slow shutter speed and
threw sand and stones into the water to cause the reaction and capture as
much of the blue haze as possible

This phenomenon is known as ‘light poles’ and it can be se... (more)
