A Man and His Ghaghra - MSG 2 Review
Let's begin this movie review by the climax, and breaking the unbreakable rule of telling you what happens in a movie, I will.  MSG 2's villain, a (what else!) corrupt politician approaches the hero (Pitaji) flanked by an army (a real army) battalion, a clu...

Privacy

Q: Online articles recently referred to some privacy issues with the Redmi Note, claiming that photos and text messages are sent to China secretly. Are they true?

A: An article severely misinterpreted a discussion thread asking about the Redmi Note's communication with a server in China. The article also neglected to refer to a Chinese version of this Q&A already posted on the Xiaomi Hong Kong Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Xiaomihongkong/posts/799059896795602). MIUI does not secretly upload photos and text messages.

MIUI requests public data from Xiaomi servers from time to time. These include data such as preset greeting messages (thousands of jokes, holiday greetings and poems) in the Messaging app and MIUI OTA update notifications, i.e. all non-personal data that does not infringe on user privacy.

Q: Does Xiaomi upload any personal data without my knowledge?

A: No. Xiaomi offers a service called Mi Cloud that enables users to back up and manage personal information in the cloud, as well as sync to other devices.  This includes contacts, notes, text messages and photos. Mi Cloud is turned off by default.  Users must log in with their Mi accounts and manually turn on Mi Cloud.  They also have the option to only turn on backup for certain types of data. The use and storage of data in Mi Cloud fully respects the local laws of each country and region.  Strict encryption algorithms are implemented to protect user privacy. 

Q: Can I turn Mi Cloud off?

A: Yes. Just go to Settings > Mi Cloud to turn it off. If you would like to use a cloud back up service from another provider, there are options from Google, Dropbox and many others.

Q: Why should I believe you?

A: Xiaomi is serious about user privacy and takes all possible steps to ensure our Internet services adhere to our privacy policy. We do not upload any personal information and data without the permission of users. In a globalized economy, Chinese manufacturers' handsets are selling well internationally, and many international brands are similarly successful in China – any unlawful activity would be greatly detrimental to a company's global expansion efforts.

THE SCEPTICAL PATRIOT: EXPLORING THE TRUTHS BEHIND THE ZERO AND OTHER GLORIES
Rated 5 out of 5

Because everyone deserves to be smart(er)
If you've been a fan of mental floss, Veritassium, and How it's Made, this book is your hand book to everything 'great' about India.

Subject matter aside, it is one of the funniest non-fiction books I've read, and perhaps one of the most interesting history related books. Managing three goals while writing a non-fiction book is a phenomenal achievement. Just buy it yaar.

Android One was still born at launch. Here's why.
How you do you reconcile this:The world's biggest online company launches a new wave of devices- devices which overcome buggy stick-on interfaces by partners such as Samsung, provide a great experience for first timers, and launch with big-bang promotions in one of the world's largest mobile markets, with some of the biggest local phone brands as partners And yet fails?Google's Android One project, launched in India over the past three months, ha...

As nice as the video is, the only suspension of disbelief is at the moment where they're able to travel by train at such a short notice. The husband must be a Mountain Dew kinda guy.

Hey Ash. A couple of outdoor reviews once in a while would be great. 

That said, thank you for all your work so far. Your reviews are the neatest, with the best editing I've seen in the Indian tech scene. Great production values.

Great service, small outlet but did their job much better than other subway outlets I've been to.

Visit only if you must. Urban nightmare. Parking hassles, layout must have been created by a crackpot. A fire hazard with narrow lanes between shops over crowded with material spilling out of shops.

Wonderful Ambience. Efficient service. Not as crowded as other Gurgaon hotspots. Classic Italian food. What more can one ask for.

This is the worst internet provider ever. They will charge the lowest rates, and then give you service only on 10 days in the month. Staff doesn't respond to complaints.

Very well maintained market with a good variety of shops. David Meat Shop, Sweet Obsession and Gopala are three great places to visit. Enough parking and great access from Golf Course Road.

It's a hotel worth the modest price you pay for it. Rooms are smaller from conventional hotels but highly functional. Very comfortable beds, a quiet atmosphere ensures you can rest well tired from all the shopping. It's at the edge of central KL, so everything is a short metro ride away, which is connected to the hotel through a dedicated overbridge. Convenience stores are nearby, the only thing missing is a money exchange outlet. Breakfast is good, and included in the room price. Wifi, also included, is capable for chatting, and some browsing. Overall, great value for money and very comfortable if you don't mind the room size.
