Power of Zen is capable of turning fortunes of Tablet market!

Tough to review a tablet when the picture is not that rosy for the sector. But will new year bring some change in fortunes? Stats are yet to come out regarding performance during the October-December quarter, but before that, global sales of tablets have gone down for consecutive four quarters, with July-September sales showing a decline of 12.6 percent year-on-year basis. Global shipments of tablets were expected to decline by 8.1% in 2015 as compared to last year. That’s the industry scenario in midst of which Taiwanese IT giant ASUS has launched a new range of its tablets- ZenPads. Actually this is a part of series of launches ASUS has done across its all platforms— including ZenFone 2— in the last few months. And indeed all of them have been impressive, to say the least.

Sharp as Laser & my travel partner as well- ASUS ZenFone 2

Being a NOKIA addict right from start, I had never tried to change my mobile phone brand. I used to feel that NOKIA handsets are more user-friendly. Hence, I refused to switch over even when Android was ruling the mobile world and people around me were using Android based phones in full flow. Since my bonding was more with original Nokia, hence it didn’t automatically passed on to Windows when it took over Nokia. So much so that I kept cringed to my Nokia C7 even when I had accidentally cracked its screen by pressing it against my hotel room keys kept in back pocket of my jeans sometime back when I was on travel. So, switching a phone itself was a big deal for me, let alone changing the brand. But then I had no options left. It was in this situation that, I was given a ASUS phone to...

This ZICA is confident and agile

The whole ZICA experience was put together by Indiblogger who took 60 bloggers from the country for a ride (not literally), a drive actually. So, that Sunday morning there were more than 20 brand new ZICA cars (10 petrol and 10 diesel) were trolling up & down the streets of Goa with a team of three bloggers per car for an ultimate driving experience. Fortunate were those (like yours truly) who had two non-driver bloggers in their car, as then they got to drive the test-vehicle for the full distance. So, now we continue with my experience with the car. In the last post, we talked about interiors. This time around, I will discuss some of the performance features, which were easily graspable for a novice like me. I got to drive the diesel variant of ZICA. And almost immediately all

A wholesome awesome ZICA

Prelude: Tough to write about a car in times when ‘odds’ are so stacked against them from Paris to Delhi. Well, I will still try to hold an ‘even’ course during this post. With so much hullabaloo on pollution around, on return from Goa, I was just wondering that what would be the new buying decisions for the cars. But then couple of days before, one of my close journalist friend called on. She said, that she had two even numbered cars and now she wanted to sell one and buy another odd numbered one. She wanted me to accompany for the new purchase. Her call cleared few of my doubts. A fear that many had already expressed in the raging debate. I was sure that its certainly not the car sales that are going to be affected. I could have now written my review without any prejudices! ...

Luxury in Heritage – Devigarh

Made famous almost a decade ago by some fat celebrity weddings, Devigarh owned by Lebua Hotels and Resorts is a heritage hotel, housed in an 18th-century palace in the village of Delaware near Udaipur in Rajasthan. It still is famous for weddings in royal styles. Popular for shootings of films and TV serials, this was the royal residence of the rulers of Delwara principality, from the middle of the 18th century until the mid-20th century. Nestled in the Aravali hills, the stunning hill-top fort palace is located on one of the three main passes into the valley of Udaipur. This palace is now fantastically restored into a luxurious, sophisticated and impossibly romantic retreat. The interior of the fort palace has been transformed in a minimalist contemporary manner while conserving the an...

The power of Zen! Really!!

Putting up together an excellent smart phone is not an easy task and putting up and excellent show to launch an excellent phone really needs extra smartness. I never thought that Asus as a tech brand and Zenfone as a smart phone is so popular until I landed at Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in New Delhi on last Thursday. When I had tweeted about the event earlier that day, one of my followers had actually asked- ‘they are launching in a stadium? Great.’ Actually even till then, I had not anticipated it to be that big. Had been to many launches, hence JLN stadium was for me just a venue. I knew Sonakshi (Sinha) was coming but then that’s normal for various launches these days to rope in a Bollywood star to get extra coverage. (view the slideshow) But it was real big. It was not just a f...

केरल की आबोहवा में होकर तरोताजा

सेहत के लिए सैरः केरल आयुर्वेद चिकित्सा पद्धति के लिए भी प्रसिद्ध है। दुनियाभर से लोग अद्भुत प्राकृतिक खूबसूरती के साथ-साथ उसकी चिकित्सा में खुद को चुस्त-दुरुस्त करने आते हैं ....................... लाट पर गिरकर कपाट के साथ बहते गर्म तेल से मानो भीतर की सारी थकान, जड़ता पिघल-पिघल कर नीचे रिस रही थी। मेरे लिए यह पहला अनुभव था। इतना घूमने के बाद भी स्पा या आयुर्वेदिक मसाज के प्रति कोई उत्साह मेरे भीतर नहीं जागा था, पहली बार केरल जाकर भी नहीं। इसलिए केरल की दूसरी यात्रा में कैराली में मिला यह अहसास काफी अनूठा था क्योंकि शिरोधारा के बारे में काफी कुछ सुना था। माथे पर बहते तेल को एक जोड़ी सधे हाथ सिर पर मल रहे थे। दूसरे जोड़ी हाथ बाकी बदन का जिम्मा संभाले हुए थे। यूं तो अभ्यांगम समूचे बदन पर मालिश की अलग चिकित्सा अपने आप में है, लेकिन बाकी तमाम चिकित्साओं में भी सीमित ही सही, कुछ मालिश तो
