JBL Flip II Speakers -

 The JBL Flip II Speaker (Black Edition) is a portable Bluetooth enabled speaker. It can be bought in stores or online. The FLip II is slightly smaller in size compared to others in its class. Even though it is smaller, the music output in terms of volume and bass is amazing. Music can be played on the speaker by either connecting your phone via Bluetooth or by using and AUX Cable which can be bought for about Rs. 150/- online. It is quite easy to pair your phone via Bluetooth. The range of the speaker isn't great and this is the only slight disadvantage. Like stated before, music quality is great be it outdoors or indoors. Though I have not played music using the AUX Cable, I think that there shouldn't be any problem. The battery life is just above average. JBL's website claims that the speaker will run for about 4 - 5 hours. This is not true. While connecting and playing via Bluetooth, it lasted for about 3 - 3.5 hours only. 3 hours is not bad though. A good thing

Ola Vs Uber - The Ultimate Debate

For sometime, there has been this continuous debate over which taxi operator - Ola or Uber is better. So, I took it upon myself to distinguish between the two, analyse the pros and cons of both the apps, their drivers and customer satisfaction and here is my report: Ola Cabs OlaCabs: Ola Mini (Rs. 80 for 4 kms and thereafter Rs. 10/km) Ola Sedan (Rs. 100 for 4 kms and thereafter Rs. 13/ km) Ola Auto (Meter Rate + Rs10 convenience charge)  Ola Mini offers its customers a small car with a small boot space at a relatively lower price. This car is ideal for 1 - 3 passengers but can hold 4 passengers (excluding the driver). The Ola sedan can more or less comfortably hold 1 - 4 passengers (excluding the driver) at a slightly higher price. The Ola Auto allows customers to book an auto which can hold upto 3 people. The advantages of an Ola Auto is that it allows customers to travel whatever distances that they want without bargaining with the Auto Driver. I, have used this

SHAREit - a Smooth, Super Fast, Hassle Free Way for Wireless Data Transfer

SHAREit is an app that is mainly used to transfer files from a phone to another phone or from a phone to a PC or vice - versa by creating a local hot spot. This app is relatively famous especially among the youth since it helps to transfer games, songs, etc. very quickly. SHAREit, personally is a very useful app. It provides hassle free connection and transfer of data between two devices unlike Bluetooth. SHAREit enables the receiver of the apps/ songs/ pictures and videos  to save a lot of time, since he/ she does not need to go through the whole process of downloading the app/ songs from the net or copying files using a cable (let's be honest, half of the time we can't find a suitable cable). " I transferred 75 MB worth of data in under15seconds! Also like we all know, transferring files, especially large ones like a number of songs or a number of pictures after a vacation, via Bluetooth takes a long time. But, SHAREit copies files in a jiffy. For example, I t
