Whatsapp Update Shares Info With Facebook And Here’s How To Opt Out

Ever since Facebook’s acquisition, Whatsapp has evolved quite a lot, mostly for the good, though not every update it pushes out put a smile in everyone’s face. And this latest update is bound to draw flak from users. While the incorporation of Whatsapp Calling, end-to-end encryption, and Whatsapp web and desktop are seen as welcome additions, the updated Terms and Privacy Policy that came with this latest update may not go down well with a lot of folks. Back then when Whatsapp was acquired by the social media giant, it pledged to remain independent of its new parent company, but now, things have took a turn with the new terms and privacy policy now stating that it (Whatsapp) will be sharing some user data with Facebook, along with “any of our other family.” Continue reading Whatsapp Update Shares Info With Facebook And Here’s How To Opt Out

Ball and Buck’s New Balance 585 Is Surprisingly Refreshing And Beautiful

American’s classy sporting outfit maker Ball and Buck has come together with long time American’s sport shoes maker New Balance to create a shoe designed with sporting gentlemen in mind. Two years in the making, the New Balance x Ball and Buck Made In USA 585, as it is called, has special significance as both are American label who are fervent proponents of made in USA goods and thus, not surprisingly, this Ball and Buck iteration of the classic NB 585 is made in the good’ol US of A. We relish this idea, very much. Not that goods made elsewhere isn’t good, but we are wary of possible malpractices and even abuses that contradicts international laws in the name of producing the goods ‘more economically’. But that’s just our point-of-view Continue reading Ball and Buck’s New Balance 585 Is Surprisingly Refreshing And Beautiful

MDK9: A $3,650 Dog House That Looks Like Human’s Modern Homes

No. That’s not a monster size dog threatening to crush a beautiful architecture. That ‘building’ there, called MDK9 Dog Haus, is actually a dog house. Yep. You heard that right. A dog house. Apparently frustrated with how ugly today’s dog houses are, L.A. custom furniture design company Rah: Design decided to take matters into their own hands and the result pretty much speaks for itself. Fashioned and built just like human’s dwelling, MDK9 Dog Haus boasts an appropriately slope roof and proper foundation that extends beyond the dog’s living quarter, creating a porch-like setup for your canine friend to chill out during unkind weather, while an integrated dual bowl out on the facade provides a semi-sheltered place for him/her to dine in. Continue reading MDK9: A $3,650 Dog House That Looks Like Human’s Modern Homes

Greatest Fisherman’s Haul: A Giant Clam-produced Pearl Worth $100M

10 years ago, an unnamed fisherman in the Philippines dived into the water to dislodge a stuck anchor and subsequently returned to the surface with a shell which the anchor had apparently lodged on. The angler didn’t think of it much then and proceed to bring home the shell. All this while, he kept what he identified as a “good-luck charm” under his bed, until a blaze force him to vacate with the shell. Likely with the belief that the shell might be jinxed, he brought it to Puerto Princesa’s tourism office. It was only then, the revelation begins. Continue reading Greatest Fisherman’s Haul: A Giant Clam-produced Pearl Worth $100M

Giant-ass HAV Airlander 10 Made Heavy Landing, But Everyone’s Fine

Some sites called it a crash and to be honest, that’s a little click bait-ish and much exaggerated. We see it as a heavy landing, which incidentally, I personally experienced a day ago when the regular Boeing aircraft I was on made an unusually heavy thump onto the runway. I grasped, but everything was fine. My immediate thought was, “God, they should get the landing checked if anything’s hurt in process.” Anyways, as it turned out, the much anticipated revolution in aviation, Airlander 10’s test flight was anything but smooth. First it was the delay due to undisclosed technical issue and then, on the second test flight on the 24th, it “experienced a heavy landing.” Continue reading Giant-ass HAV Airlander 10 Made Heavy Landing, But Everyone’s Fine

Gamers Broke World Record, Drove Virtual Ford GT For Over 48 Hours

The fame and fortune that comes with a prestigious racing event like the LeMans 24 may not be as awesome as those enjoyed by Formula 1 race drivers, but it is by no means less gruelling. In fact, it could be worst. Having just two or three drivers to endure a day of non-stop driving at immense speed is by no means an easy feat. It requires the same, if not more, physical and mental conditioning than Formula 1 and obviously, not everyone is cut out for it. So, if you dream of becoming a LeMans 24 race driver, there’s an easier way and that way is through video game. Continue reading Gamers Broke World Record, Drove Virtual Ford GT For Over 48 Hours

Look, It’s The Lamborghini Centenario, But Now Without The Roof

Remember that wild, one-off Lamborghini Centenario coupe? Well, if you missed it because all 40 of those have been snapped out, then we believe you will miss the open-top variant too. I am not being pessimistic here; the fact is with far less units being offered, or 20 units, to be exact, the stock is not going to last very long – even if it cost well over two million euros and upwards. Anywho, in case if there’s one available, you should be very happy because the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster Supercar is essentially the coupe, sharing much of the coupe’s lines, features and even power plant. The only difference between the coupe and the open top is, of course, you get additional exhilaration of winds in your face while going 200 mph or more.
