Netflix released a teaser for Stranger things 4

Netflix released a teaser for stranger things 4 on stranger things youtube channel.

The teaser doesn’t reveal too many details about the upcoming season, but it seems like the promise that the series would be expanding its world beyond the town of Hawkins, Indiana, is correct: the trailer shows a group of workers building a railroad somewhere in Russia

There’s no release date yet for the fourth season of Stranger Things, but with Netflix starting up the marketing campaign already, it likely won’t be long before the show hits the streaming service.


Robert Pattinson's Batman look revealed

Robert Pattinson's Batman look revealed by director

Robert Pattinson is the new Batman, and thanks to a new teaser, we just got a first look at what he looks like in the famous batsuit. He played as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter: goblet of fire movie.

Matt Reeves, who is directing the new Batman movie, shared a screen test of Pattinson in the new suit.


I loved Christian Bale as Batman, and I never thought another actor would really replace him as the Batman in my mind. But based just on this short video, I think Pattinson could have a real shot at becoming my favourite version of the caped crusader.

Unfortunately, we still have a long wait until we can see Pattinson take up the cowl, as the new movie isn’t scheduled to release until June 25th, 2021. But until then, we’ve at least got this epic teaser.

Here is the tweet


In a January press release, Warner Bros. announced Pattinson will be playing "Gotham City's vigilante detective, Batman, and billionaire Bruce Wayne."

Principal photography on next summer's movie began January 28. Reeves shared the announcement on Twitter by sharing a clapper with the film's logo

An Annoyed Lady made a Phone with Rotary Dial

An Annoyed Lady made a Phone with Rotary Dial
PC: Justine Haupt


The smartphone changed the world, but it wasn’t all for the better. Mobile devices are packed full of endless productivity-killing distractions, and the ability to actually make a phone call almost seems like an afterthought now.

A Science Associate from Brook-haven National Laboratory Instrumentation Division made a phone with an old school Rotary Dail as she thaught the regular big screen modern phones are annoying and want to take control of her life.

Justine Haupt made the phone from scratch and made her notes available on her website.

To call her better half and other family members she designed a dedicated button for each loved one.

There’s an entire generation that probably won’t be able to make sense of Haupt’s Rotary Cellphone or why it has a bizarre circular wheel affixed to the top. For the rest of us who suffered through a time when placing calls meant spinning a plastic wheel, Haupt’s creation seems like it was brought to Earth from a parallel dimension where mobile phones took an entirely different evolutionary route, and where technologies like touchscreens never came to fruition.

For those scratching their heads over that dial, users would place a finger in the hole of the number they wanted to ‘press’ and then turn the dial until their finger hit a metal clip, at which point they’d release the dial and it would spin back into place. All of that for every single number of a ten-digit phone number.

According to Haupt’s website where she provides lots of details on how this creation came to be, the dial itself was salvaged from a Western Electric Trimline telephone which featured hardware that was more compact than other rotary phones from decades back. That, along with the necessary electronics needed to make the dial interface with modern cellular chipsets, was integrated with a custom-designed board that was manufactured in China, and then stuffed into a 3D printed enclosure. The Rotary Cellphone is far from pocketable but it’s compact and light enough to pick up and hold to your ear for the length of the average phone call.

Despite looking somewhat primitive, Haupt did integrate some useful features borrowed from modern smartphones, including a 10-LED signal meter, programmable shortcut buttons for calling specific people, a power switch that physically slides on and off, and a curved e-paper screen with two sections so that information like missed calls can be displayed on the side like an old-school pager would.

On her website Haupt has shared not only photos of how her Rotary Cellphone came together, but also raw schematics and links to all of the original design files, released as open-source materials, allowing anyone with the technical expertise to build their own.

A cunning Dolphin in Institute for Marine Mammal Studies

A cunning Dolphin in Institute for Marine Mammal Studies

At the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies in Mississippi, Kelly the dolphin has built up quite a reputation. All the dolphins at the institute are trained to hold onto any litter that falls into their pools until they see a trainer when they can trade the litter for fish. In this way, the dolphins help to keep their pools clean.

Kelly has taken this task one step further. When people drop paper into the water she hides it under a rock at the bottom of the pool. The next time a trainer passes, she goes down to the rock and tears off a piece of paper to give to the trainer. After a fish reward, she goes back down, tears off another piece of paper get another fish, and so on. This behaviour is interesting because it shows that Kelly has a sense of the future and delays gratification. She has realised that a big piece of paper gets the same reward as a small piece and so delivers only small pieces to keep the extra food coming. She has, in effect, trained the humans.

Her cunning has not stopped there. One day, when a gull flew into her pool, she grabbed it, waited for the trainers and then gave it to them. It was a large bird and so the trainers gave her lots of fish. This seemed to give Kelly a new idea. The next time she was fed, instead of eating the last fish, she took it to the bottom of the pool and hid it under the rock where she had been hiding the paper. When no trainers were present, she brought the fish to the surface and used it to lure the gulls, which she would catch to get even more fish. After mastering this lucrative strategy, she taught her calf, who taught other calves, and so gull-baiting has become a hot game among the dolphins.

New Moto Razr lasted for 27000 folds

New Moto Razr lasted for 27000 folds
Pic: 9to5 Google

Remember the folding bot from CNET that folded Samsung galaxy fold for over about 9 hours at a high speed of 2.5 folds per second. In this test, the Samsung galaxy fold lasted for about more than 120,000 folds. Watch the video here

Now it's time for moto Razar a new single-screen folding phone to take this folding test. After testing it on the folding bot the new moto razor just lasted for 27000 folds.



Tech Experts has done small math to calculate the life of a moto Razr phone folding.

The math goes like this :

If you open and close the moto Razr phone 100 times a day on average that gives you around 270 days of life.

so Samsung has done a better job than the Motorola in hinges and Motorola has done a good job in the display. Well, Razr has not gone the same vigours as Galaxy fold.

In Samsung galaxy fold, at first, the display has got visible pink lines at 119,000 folds and after 122000 folds the hinge is making noises to fold.

Coming to Moto Razr the screen is in intact but the hinge is not folding at all and small misalignment in the hinge is noticed.

92nd Academy Awards live blog



The 92nd Academy Awards or the Oscars, as they are popularly known as, will take place on Sunday (February 9) at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Just like last year, the Oscars are going host-less this year as well.

This year, the Academy members have a tough choice to make. With a number of films that have already won at different awards shows, selecting a winner will be extremely difficult. From Joaquin Phoenix-starrer Joker to Martin Scorsese's The Irishman and Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, there are big names which will be contending for the coveted trophy. Currently, Joker is leading with 11 nominations, followed by 10 nominations each to Sam Mendes-directorial war film 1917, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and The Irishman.

Other films in the race include- Christian Bale and Matt Damon's Ford v Ferrari, Taika Waititi's Jojo Rabbit, Greta Gerwig's adaptation of the 19th-century novel Little Women, and the Scarlett Johansson, Adam Driver-starrer Marriage Story and Korean film Parasite.

Another change which was made for this year's Oscars is that the foreign-language category is now called Best International Feature Film. Korean film Parasite has been nominated in this category as well while getting nominations in the Best Picture category. The parasite is directed by Bong Joon-ho.

How to track corona virus updates online?




What is coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses found in both animals and humans. Some infect people and are known to cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).



How Dangerous is it?

As with other respiratory illnesses, infection with 2019-nCoV can cause mild symptoms including a runny nose, sore throat, cough, and fever. It can be more severe for some persons and can lead to pneumonia or breathing difficulties. More rarely, the disease can be fatal. Older people and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as diabetes and heart disease) appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus.


What can I do to protect myself?


Stay aware of the latest information on the outbreak, available on the WHO website, and take care of your health by doing the following:


Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub if your hands are not visibly dirty 

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand rub eliminates the virus if it is on your hands. 

Maintain social distancing – maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and other people, particularly those who are coughing, sneezing and have a fever. 

Why? When someone who is infected with respiratory diseases, like 2019-nCoV, coughs or sneezes they project small droplets containing the virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the virus.


Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Why? Hands touch many surfaces which can be contaminated with the virus. If you touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your contaminated hands, you can transfer the virus from the surface to yourself.

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early. Tell your health care provider if you have travelled in an area in China where 2019-nCoV has been reported, or if you have been in close contact with someone with who has travelled from China and has respiratory symptoms.

Why? Whenever you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing it’s important to seek medical attention promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Respiratory symptoms with fever can have a range of causes, and depending on your personal travel history and circumstances, 2019-nCoV could be one of them.

If you have mild respiratory symptoms and no travel history to or within China, carefully practice basic respiratory and hand hygiene and stay home until you are recovered, if possible.

Should I wear a mask to protect myself?
