We are living in a connected age, where all the devices we use are increasingly becoming smart and joining our home networks.

Legend has it that in the early days of his career, Pelé once had the goal's height inspected after kicking for a goal and hitting the crossbar instead, and it actually turned out to be lower than the standard height! While epicosity of such astronomical proportions might work for legends like Pelé, what about us mere mortals? Fortunately, we live in an era where everything around us is...

Got an iPhone and want to improve your photography experience immensely? Check out these smart accessories that I just wrote about at +Connectedly (Some of these work with Android too.)
Due to its tremendous popularity, the iPhone has no shortage of third-party accessories. In fact, it's got to be the smartphone with the most accessories available out there for pretty much anything one could think of — and then some. This includes several camera accessories to make the best out of the iPhone's already impressive camera, either by mounting it perfectly to get the right...

Introduction

If there is one thing that sucks about being into multiple professions, it's the awkward situation one gets into when introducing oneself. Being a restless spirit who's young at heart and old at mind, I have had a diverse career in fields including but not limited to broadcast and advertising media, showbiz, education, trade, writing, information technology and business process outsourcing.

At present, I'm working for the Mobile Nations network, where you'll find me writing about Android as well as the Internet of Things and the world of smart, connected devices at the awesome Android Central and Connectedly blogs.

In the past, I have worked as Senior Editor at the popular technology blog AddictiveTips, and written for the XDA Portal - the front page of the biggest smartphone enthusiast community in the world. You can take a look at some of my best work at my Contently page.

Apart from blogging and technology, I love adventure sports and nature. Before recently moving to Lahore, I could often be found exploring the Margalla hills in Islamabad, looking for cliffs to climb. These days, my spare time is spent exploring the old walled city of Pakistan's cultural and culinary capital, sampling all the great food it has to offer, and marveling at the Mughal-era architecture that can still be found there.

My biggest dream in life is to go backpacking across the world on a trip of adventure, visiting every single country, viewing every single UNESCO World Heritage Site out there, meeting and making friends with all sorts of people, climbing the mountains and cliffs, rafting and kayaking the rivers, lakes and sea, and exploring the amazing natural beauty that our planet has to offer.

Awesome coffee, very friendly staff, very decent snacks. The white chocolate caramel iced latte is a must-try. Also, they actually serve beef lasagne with a pretty authentic bologna style sauce! I am sick and tired of 99% of the places that offer lasagne in Islamabad serving the chicken variant only. Everything is prices quite fairly too. And there's a charging-station-cum-work-desk where any patron can sit and work. I sit here for hours at times, working and enjoying my coffee and snacks.
