COPY LINKAD Loading … Close Is Redmi Note 7 the new-age Nokia 3310?center_img The much-hyped Redmi K20 was launched a few days back on July 17, 2019. The much-awaited smartphone was thought to be a flagship killer with its design leaks on the internet and the peep-in specs declared by the Chinese manufacturer before its launch.The launch event on Wednesday gave a vivid picture of the phone with high-end specifications, creative design, firm build quality, flaming display and an amazing camera that fulfilled almost all the expectations of the fans. The shocker came at a time when the company declared the pricing for the phones. The price quotes for the phones have created widespread dismay and the fans have grouped to file a petition bidding to reduce the cost of the phone variants. Redmi K20 official lookTwitter/Manu Kumar JainHere are the reasons that have caused the controversy:Over-the-edge price for the base variant TwitterRedmi K20 was launched with a price tag of Rs 21,999 for its base variant with (6/64 GB) variant and 23,999 for the (6/128 GB) variant. The price quoted for the specs and the storage by the device was at an upper hand leading to the public’s disinterest.Comparison with the competitors Positive tweets by the people supporting the price of Redmi K20TwitterRealme, the competitor of Redmi in the economy price segment, famous for producing high-spec-low-cost devices launched its latest device on 15 July. The device named Realme X created a tough benchmark for its competitors which was mocked by the Redmi loyalists favouring the upcoming launch of K20. But all the Redmi fans have turned around to favour the Realme X as a better option after Redmi declared its price quotes.The petition to lessen the price TwitterThe Redmi loyalists have filed a petition under the link change.org (Link: chng.it/FSFJFLzm) bidding to cut down the price of the base model by Rs 2000. The Redmi fans plead the fans to add on signatures to the petitions so that the authorities can bend down to accept their demands.The open letter by Manu Jain TwitterManu Jain, CEO of Xiaomi replied to the revolting crowd on Twitter stating reasons for the escalated pricing of the K20. He said that the device comes with the latest snapdragon 730 processor and is the first phone released in India with the processor. He added that the research and development of the raw unprocessed software have led to the price hike.The Twitter catfight Twitter TwitterThere has been a feud over the petition and the price issue in Twitter where some of the supporters are actively abusing the reviewers and accepting the statements of Manu Kumar Jain’s open letter. On the other hand, there are people who stand onto their decisions for not accepting the quoted price and in turn, are verbally bashing each other in the tweeting platform.The backlash by famous reviewers TwitterMajor Indian tech reviewers have conveyed their disapproval of the price with the base variant, complaining about the low storage facility and the over-pricing of the device. Almost all the tech reviews who bashed Realme X after comparing it with the specs of Redmi K20 have changed their convictions accepting RealmeX as a better and affordable phone for the Indian market.What to believe: The hype or the controversy?With the entire confusion going on between the stiff minds understanding tech, the general public is in a confused state unable to figure if they should opt for the device or not.The hype about the high-end features are not denied by any fan or reviewer and at the same time there is a controversy about the price and the high tech-intellectuals are stepping back to accept a lower-performing device because of the high price quote in K20.Now it depends on the public to decide what their requirements are, high performing tech or are they okay with compromising a little with the performance for a to avail a lower-priced device.There goes the catch that the company will be focusing on.last_img read more

Every Entrepreneur Can Make Life Easier With These 5 iOS 8 Apps

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 3 min read October 1, 2014 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. As iOS 8 continues to extend out into the mainstream, app developers around the world are cranking out their updates to make the best use of the operating system. For entrepreneurs, that promises increased productivity, time saved and maybe even better bottom lines. Here are five apps recently released for iOS 8 that should be on every entrepreneur’s iPhone or iPad.Related: 5 Habits of Productivity App Super Users1. Evernote. This go-to note-taking app that helps you remember everything is already a must for every entrepreneur. For iOS 8, Evernote does all it has done in the past, but also takes advantage of the Notification Center where you can create different kinds of notes. Plus, there’s an extension in Safari that allows you to save as a note whatever you’re browsing.2. Kashoo. If you’re at the helm of your business’ accounting, the new Kashoo app will make one of the least sexy aspects of running a business perhaps a little less unsexy. For iOS 8, Action Extension let’s you pull stuff, such as an image of a receipt, into Kashoo in the same way that you would email, text, print or AirDrop it. That means no more jumping back and forth between Camera/Photos and Kashoo.3. OmniFocus 2. Task management is the bane of the entrepreneurial existence. (OK, it’s one of the banes.) OmniFocus 2 aims to make your day-to-day easier. Specifically related to iOS 8, you can now get a quick grip on your to-dos right in the Today section of the the Notification Center. Yes, it’s a $20 app, but if that’s what it costs to GTD (get things done), that’s a deal.Related: With iOS 8 Update, Apple Will No Longer Provide User Data to Police4. Flipboard. Flipboard is a great way to pull in all your various news and social feeds and its fresh-for-iOS 8 release gives users even more flexibility. Similar to Evernote’s new feature, you can push whatever you’re looking at (i.e., a webpage, photos, etc.) to Flipboard just by hitting the Share icon and selecting Flipboard.5. LinkedIn. My unscientific guess is that most entrepreneurs use LinkedIn more than Facebook and Twitter combined. Want to check who’s viewed your profile? No need to open up the LinkedIn app. You can see it in the Notification Center. Link sharing is much more convenient now, too. Plus, you can accept connection requests from your phone’s lock screen the same way you’d respond to an iMessage or text message.Interestingly, many apps coming out with their iOS8-ready releases are focusing on minimizing the number of times you need to actually open the app. It’s all about saving time for users by executing tasks from the Notification Center or an Extension. That’s a good thing for busy entrepreneurs.Related: A Quick Guide to Apple’s iOS 8 and OS X Yosemitelast_img read more

Trump Taj Mahal closes after 26 years 5th casino casualty

first_img Posted by Trump Taj Mahal closes after 26 years; 5th casino casualty Share Travelweek Group Tuesday, October 11, 2016 center_img ATLANTIC CITY – Donald Trump opened the Trump Taj Mahal casino 26 years ago, calling it “the eighth wonder of the world.”But his friend and fellow billionaire Carl Icahn closed it Monday morning, making it the fifth casualty of Atlantic City’s casino crisis.The sprawling Boardwalk casino, with its soaring domes, minarets and towers built to mimic the famed Indian palace, shut down at 5:59 a.m., having failed to reach a deal with its union workers to restore health care and pension benefits that were taken away from them in bankruptcy court.Nearly 3,000 workers lost their jobs, bringing the total jobs lost by Atlantic City casino closings to 11,000 since 2014.Picketers affixed an anti-Icahn poster that they had signed to the casino’s main Boardwalk entrance door. It proclaimed “We held the line.”“We held the line against a billionaire taking from us!” said Marc Scittina, a food service worker at the Taj Mahal’s player’s club since shortly after it opened in 1990. “This battle has been going on for two years.”The union went on strike July 1, and Icahn decided to shut the place down a little over a month later, determining there was “no path to profitability.”The Taj Mahal becomes the fifth Atlantic City casino to go out of business since 2014, when four others shut their doors.But this shutdown is different: it involves a casino built by the Republican candidate for president, who took time out from the campaign trail to lament its demise.More news:  GLP Worldwide introduces first-ever Wellness programs“I felt they should have been able to make a deal,” Trump told The Associated Press in a recent interview. “It’s hard to believe they weren’t able to make a deal.”Chuck Baker, a cook at the Taj Mahal since the day it opened in April 1990, was on the picket line at the moment it shut down. He was there when the doors opened and wanted to be there when they closed.He led a moment of silence among the otherwise rowdy 200 or so picketers on the Boardwalk outside the casino.“This didn’t have to happen,” he said. “To (Icahn), it’s all just business. But to us, it’s destroying our livelihoods and our families. You take away our health care, our pensions and overload the workers, we just can’t take it.”Bob McDevitt, president of Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union, said virtually all of the striking workers feel the same way.“Everybody has their Popeye moment: ‘That’s all I can stands; I can’t stands no more,’ ” he said. “The workers made a choice that they weren’t going to accept benefits and terms of employment worse than everyone else’s. I applaud them: For the first time in 30 years, workers stood up to Carl Icahn and made him throw in the towel.”Icahn reached his limit on Aug. 3, when he determined the $350 million he had lost investing in, and then owning, the Taj Mahal was enough. It was then that he decided to close the casino, fearing he would lose an additional $100 million next year.More news:  Rome enforces ban on sitting on Spanish Steps“Today is a sad day for Atlantic City,” he said Monday. “Like many of the employees at the Taj Mahal, I wish things had turned out differently.”With yelling, chanting workers just outside the glass doors, Taj Mahal workers had trouble locking them, trying to jam wooden wedges into door frames to keep them from opening. Finally they succeeded in affixing barriers to the doors.The Taj had actually been shutting down slowly for nearly two weeks. Many table games were left unstaffed, and workers cordoned off entire banks of slot machines with yellow caution tape last week as others ripped the electronic guts from them. Liquor had been removed from some service bars, and even soap dispensers disconnected from bathroom walls.Trump said he will demand that his name come off the building now that it is closed, as he similarly did with Trump Plaza after it, too, closed in 2014. As of last week, a sign over the main entrance that had proclaimed “Donald J. Trump presents Taj Mahal” was already gone.The Taj Mahal joins the Atlantic Club, Showboat, Trump Plaza and Revel as Atlantic City casinos that, since 2014, have succumbed to economic pressure brought about in large measure by competition from casinos in neighbouring states. The city now has seven casinos. Tags: Atlantic City, casino, Trump Hotels << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more
