Is The iPhone Value For Money Or Waste Of Money?

THE EXPENSIVE HABIT OF IPHONE BUYING! After months of unprecedented hype and rumours, Apple finally took the wraps of the iPhone X at an event at the Steve Jobs Theatre in Cupertino yesterday. The iPhone X has been launched to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the iPhone and as a result is the most radical update to the iPhone line-up yet. But all this extravagance comes at a cost. You will have to pay a king's ransom to get your hands on the iPhone X when it arrives in India on November 3. Smartphones have been getting expensive year on year. There was a time when a device costing more than Rs 50,000 was completely unheard off. But now the iPhone X has shattered all price barriers. Let me put it into perspective. Two Samsung Galaxy S8's can be bought for Rs 1,15,000. A fancy 250cc bike can be bought for Rs 1 lakh. One iPhone X can be bought for Rs 1,02,000. There is a cheaper model with 64GB storage for Rs 89,000. But even that seems a bit too much at first glance. The last time Apple overhauled the design of the iPhone was with the iPhone 6 in 2014.

Bullet Trains Are Really A Priority, When So Many Rail Accidents Are Happening?

ARE BULLET TRAINS REALLY REQUIRED IN INDIA? The Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train is a vanity project which has little or no justification on the grounds of economic viability or public service. Even the vanity angle — looking to position India among the ranks of developed countries — is a huge overreach. Only a handful of high-income countries with specific demographics have high-speed rail (HSR), while many have failed in their efforts, others have abandoned it after studying it. The main problem is viability, given the huge costs involved. Failed and struggling projects Japan’s pioneering Shinkansen, which connects Tokyo to Osaka, passes through the biggest industrial and commercial centres, caters to almost 50% of Japan’s population, and carries more than 150 million passengers annually. South Korea’s Seoul-Busan HSR caters to almost 70% of the population, yet struggles with viability. France’s fabled Paris-Lyon HSR service has had to periodically receive substantial subsidies. Taiwan’s $14 billion HSR service between Taipei and Tainan virtually became bankrupt after losses of over $1 billion. It realised only 50% of the projected ridership and required government bailout. Argentina gave up on HSR ambitions on cost grounds, deciding instead to upgrade its entire railway system to medium-speed infrastructure, an option India...

Is India ready for a digital revolution? – BY AREESHA FATMA

Despite our Dear Modi Ji has been focusing his hearts out for the promotion of his flagship programme “ Digital India” among masses, the audacity of situation was taken upto an extent that a major demonetization drive was announced on 8th November 2017 to kick off black money from the system and to move towards digital transactions. While, this effort has been taken into an extent that ministers are visiting rural areas of India to compel rural-ites to do as much digital transactions as they can through mass rallies (while the hidden motives of these rallies is something which we all know). Another thing which is being done is easing out the process of opening bank accounts primarily jandhan accounts, getting debit cards, (getting credit card is still tiresome for obvious reasons), linking adhar cards, payment gateways, single window mechanisms etc. However, nobody is focusing towards the rising cyber crime in India. According to the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), the numbers of cyber crimes in India are rising at an alarming rate as the number of cyber crime cases filed in 2014 rose to 11,592 in 2015 and 12, 317 in 2016. The situation is so stressed...
