Javed Akhtar Pushes The Right Buttons! #Ethnic #Fashion @ZeeClassic #IndiPR

Hi Guys, 

While it is not uncommon to spot an embroidered kurta or a sherwani at Indian weddings or festivals, what emerged as an important exposé on the fashion runways, this time, was that designers positioned traditional Indian menswear in the wardrobes not just as festive wear, but also as formal, casual or even club wear. 
Having said that, Javed Akhtar on his latest show ‘The Golden Years’ on Zee Classic is spotted wearing hand-woven ensembles in unusual designs and stunning kurta buttons in silver and beads. His variety of carefully crafted kurtas along with silver and oxidized buttons are the talk of the town. We give you an exclusive sneak-peak into the world of Javed Akhtar’s ethnic wear.

Custom made is the way to go
His regal kurtas are custom made for him with an eye for detail starting from the cloth to design, lining, and style, combining the perfect accessories to add the wow factor. The designer ensures that the handwork and the colors complement each other seamlessly. You can choose from an array of block prints, khadi, applique, embroidery, patch work, linen, and many more.
Color it up
Gone are the days, when men only sported white and black kurtas. Opt for bright and unique colors like orange, blue, burgundy and even yellow. If Javed Saab can pull it off, so can you! You have the freedom to experiment with contrasts and mix match too.
Accessorize right
Accessorizing well can elevate the look of an outfit in more ways than you can imagine. Kurta buttons are making a statement (see images below) and can add grandeur to your look. You can also choose from pocket watches, dupatta, brooches, drapes, etc to make a statement. 
Watch the next episode of The Golden Years: 1950-1975, A Musical Journey with Javed Akhtar this coming Sunday at 8 PM on Zee Classic! Check more out at www.zeeclassic.com
It's always to wear your traditional dress when you are living in foreign lands on certain special occassions and what Javed Sir did to his kurta's has brought the bling in the old traditional ethnic wear.

@AcerAfrica Expands #Predator #Gaming Line with #VR-Ready #Desktops #NextAtACER

Hi Guys, 

At Acer’s next@acer Global Press Conference in New York, the company announced new notebooks, desktops and monitors in its powerful and award-winning Predator gaming line. The new Predator 17 X notebook and compact Predator G1 desktops include top-of-the line computing technology and are NVIDIA GeForce VR-Ready(1), ready for virtual reality (VR) devices from Oculus, HTC Vive, OSVR and StarVR.

“The new Acer Predator gaming systems are designed to deliver the ultimate gaming and virtual reality experiences for our customers,” said Jerry Kao, president of IT products, Acer Inc. “Virtual reality offers unlimited new possibilities, not just in gaming, but across a wide variety of industries and applications in professional environments. As we showed today in our VR partner demos, Acer intends to give our customers the tools they need for both playing and working in this new digital world.”
Acer Predator Series #thelifesway #photoyatra

Predator 17 X Notebook - Conquer New Worlds with Desktop Grade Components and NVIDIA® G-SYNC® 4K UHD Display
Building on the success of Acer’s Predator gaming notebooks but ramping up the performance even further, the new Predator 17 X brings overclocking and desktop grade performance to mobile gaming(2). Powered by a 6th Generation Intel Core i7-6820HK processor, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 graphics, and a custom triple-fan cooling system, it delivers an uncompromising combination of power and portability(2). With overclocking, gamers will enjoy class-leading turbo speeds of up to 4.0GHz for the CPU; up to 1310MHz for the GPU; and up to 3.7GHz for VRAM . Fully ready to tackle virtual worlds, its top-end GPU makes it an ideal “VR-to-go” platform.

For the ultimate in game play, buttery smooth visuals are delivered on the notebook’s 17.3-inch G-SYNC panel. Available with either a FHD IPS (1920 x 1080) or UHD IPS (4K 3840 x 2160) display, NVIDIA G-SYNC technology matches the refresh rate of the screen with the powerful GPU to eliminate screen tearing and minimize stuttering.

All this muscle is enhanced with DDR4-2133 memory and enterprise level NVMe PCIe solid state drives in a three-SATA-SSD RAID 0 array for immense data transfer speeds(2). Killer DoubleShot Pro enables Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections to work together, so gamers can use Ethernet for gaming while at the same time using WiFi for watching twitch.tv, listening to music or Skyping with friends. A Thunderbolt 3 port adds expandability and delivers the fastest, most versatile connection to any dock, display, or data device. It is up to 8X faster than USB 3.0 and 4X faster than USB 3.1.

The Predator 17 X also includes a new triple-fan cooling system that maximizes heat dissipation and ensures extreme overclocking performance. An Aeroblade fan located near the GPU uses the world’s thinnest metallic blades (0.1mm) to simulate aircraft wing flight behavior to enhance fan speed, reduce drag and nose. Together, the three fans optimize air flow while an efficient front intake system brings cool air into the laptop. A vapor chamber, most typically used in server environments for high-performance and cooling efficiency, also helps to dispatch the heat and enable better overclocking performance. The Predator 17 X also includes DustDefender and CoolBoost, which uses dual high-speed fans with reverse rotation to remove dust build-up and improve heat dissipation.

Predator 17 X Notebook #thelifesway #photoyatraAcer’s PredatorSense software offers advanced customization options for gaming features like overclock modes, keyboard macro profiles and programmable keys for favorite games and adjustable lighting configurations. In addition, the Predator 17 X’s backlit keyboard includes customizable RGB illumination, so gamers can change and personalize lighting zones colors for specific game or profile setups.

Predator G1 Desktop – Power and Portability Make it Perfect for LAN Parties and Gaming on-the-Go
The Predator G1 (G1-710) gaming desktop squeezes awe-inspiring power into a compact 16-litre body and is designed for gaming at home or on-the-go. This highly transportable gaming beast easily fits under an arm or in an optional carrying case, making it the ultimate war machine for serious gamers and LAN parties.

The perfect balance between compact size and great power, the Predator G1’s 16-liter chassis supports full size NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics (up to Titan X), 6th Generation Intel Core processors and up to 64GB DDR4 memory for supremely smooth gameplay(2). For gamers interested in virtual reality, just plug in a VR headset and get ready to explore new worlds with the Predator G1 leading the way.

The new Predator desktop also includes another must-have gaming feature -- Killer DoubleShot™ Pro, which picks the fastest network connection (Ethernet or Wireless) and sends all high priority traffic over that interface, while standard traffic is sent over the other. This ensures the highest priority traffic is always delivered over the fastest and most reliable link.
NVIDIA G-SYNC #thelifesway #photoyatra

With support for G-SYNC and 4K2K Ultra High Definition visuals, the Predator G1 provides stunningly smooth high-quality images, delivering games and movies with unparalleled precision and clarity, while Creative Soundblaster X-Fi MB5 and 7.1 channel audio support provide immersive sound. The Predator G1 also offers massive storage, including up to a 4TB (7200 RPM) hard disk drive(3) or a 512GB solid state drive(3), while a USB 3.1 Type-C Gen. 2 port adds huge expandability and fast data transfer.

Acer’s PredatorSense software can be used to check and control system vitals, set up hotkeys and adjust the multicolored lighting on the customizable “growl lights” along the PC’s front chassis. For extra convenience, dual slide-out headset cradles on each side of the PC let gamers place the G1 against a wall and still have a cradle available for use. Acer also offers a range of optional accessories for the Predator G1 gaming desktop, including a mechanical keyboard, headset and wheeled carrying case.

Pricing and Availability
The Predator 17 X notebooks will be available at leading retailers with prices starting at R 45 999, 00. The Predator G1 desktops will be available at leading retailers R 18 999,00. The new Predator line up was unveiled at the next@acer press event at 4 World Trade Center in New York, where the company announced a range of new devices and solutions for families, students and professionals.

@AcerAfrica ASPIRE S13 #Notebook Fusion of #Performance, #Build and #Value

Hi Guys, 

Acer announced the latest addition to its ultra-slim S series notebooks, the Aspire S 13, a perfectly engineered thin and powerful Windows 10 notebook for design-conscious users. The angular, sleek chassis houses the best-valued laptops on the market today, packed with features for work and play.

“Demonstrating the equilibrium between form and function, the Aspire S 13’s powerful components come together to strike a perfect balance in size, weight and performance,” said James Lin, General Manager, Consumer Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “Currently there is no other branded device on the market that can offer such design excellence at this desirable price.”

“The Windows device ecosystem offers something for everyone, with device options to fit customers’ needs,” said Nick Parker, Corporate Vice President, OEM Division, Microsoft Corp. “The ultra-slim Aspire S 13 brings Windows 10 to life with the best security, productivity and manageability only Windows 10 can deliver.”
Aspire to Do More
Running Windows 10 with the option of a 10-point touch display, the Aspire S 13 is powered by 6th Generation Intel® Core™ processors and up to 8 GB of LPDDR3 system memory, not only enabling faster performance and enhanced graphics, but also lower power consumption. The optional 54 Wh 3-cell Li-ion battery lasts up to 13 hours, enabling users to get the most out of their machine every day. 

Wired connectivity comes in the form of a USB 3.1 Type-C reversible port which supports ultra-fast transfer of data (up to 5Gbps) and also a USB 3.0 port which supports power-off charging for mobile devices, even when the Aspire S 13 is switched off. Wirelessly, the laptop enables users to utilize 802.11ac to its maximum effect with 2x2 MU-MIMO (Multi-User MIMO) for up to three times faster[2] performance over single-user MIMO 802.11ac. 

Meanwhile, the Precision Touchpad enables an accurate, smooth and responsive navigation experience, and supports Windows 10 Precision Touchpad gestures.
Aspire to Enjoy More
The Aspire S 13 offers the best of both worlds when it comes to work and entertainment capabilities. The Full HD touchscreen[3] display with wide-viewing angle IPS technology brings immersive experiences for both movies and presentations, while Acer BluelightShield can be enabled to reduce the blue-light emission from the LED backlit module. In low light, the two-stage adjustable backlit keyboard provides more options to suit the circumstances: first stage turns on the backlit keyboard, the second stage turns on the lighting to full luminance.

Acer TrueHarmony and Dolby® Audio™ lets this light-in-weight unit really punch above its category when it comes to audio performance with cinematic surround sound. The newest software user interface also enhances the consumer experience with a custom profile and intelligent audio and visual features.

Skype for Business Certification ensures people can communicate with crisp and lag-free quality, and also allows for clearer, higher quality audio and a great Cortana experience with Windows 10.
Aspire to Astonish
For those who deeply care about the appearance of their personal technology, the Aspire S 13 is ultra-thin and lightweight, measuring 327W x 228D x 14.58H mm (0.57 inches) and weighing 1.30 kg (2.86 pounds). Available in Obsidian Black or Pearl White, the unit is housed in an immaculate chassis featuring a sleek chamfer diamond-cut on the edges and the touchpad, with Acer nano-imprint patterning on the top cover and a blend of premium finishes. The glossy hinge and matte cover offer contrasting visual impressions, while the juxtaposition of soft-touch and hard materials provides distinct tactile experiences and gives the Aspire S 13 a dynamic look that separates it from the crowd.

[2] To achieve the best performance, both the transmitter and receiver must support MU-MIMO. The product is based on an IEEE 802.11ac draft specification and multi user scenario. Actual speed will vary based on range, connection rate, site conditions, size of network, and other factors. The claim of up to 3x faster transmission speed is valid only under scenario when wireless AP supports 4 MU streams. 

[3] Optional touchscreen display

Product Review - Jawbone Up24 @Jawbone #UP24 #SouthAfrica

Hi Guys,

Fitness bands have captured the markets worldwide and so many companies are now making them but the difference remains in terms of how good and intelligent are their smartphones apps which can process the data collected through the fitness band. 

I fell in love with Jawbone bands when they launched it a few years ago and always wanted to own the same. The time came when Takealot.com had a discounted scheme on one of the old version bands names Jawbone Up24 whereas UP3 was the latest one in the market. I bought the same and thought of trying the same out. 

I reviewed Fitbit Charge HR and this was the moment to try out the other competitions in the fitness band market. I loved Fitbit Charge HR for it's abilities but then I fell in love with the Smart Coach which is a feature in Jawbone app for smartphones as it processes the data collected via the app and gives your personalized advises and motivational messages to carry on. 
Jawbone Up24 has a 2.5mm jack hidden underneath the Jawbone branded cover on one end of the band. The band can be worn simply by sliding on your wrist and is available in three sizes. The package contains the charging cable with a female jack and USB to charge it via your laptop etc. The battery life on UP24 was nearly 14 days which is the best part about this band as you have to charge it twice every month. 

Jawbone bands looks like a fashion band and no one will know that its measuring your steps, sleep and many other things. The data is synced automatically to the smartphone app as soon as you have internet and bluetooth both ON. The UP Coach will send some personalized notifications based on previous days data at the start of the day when you open the JawboneUP app on your smartphone. 

Jawbone UP24 is splash proof and can take a little bit of rain etc but can't be fully submerged in water as the main mechanism/technology hidden inside a thin sheet of rubber will rust. You do have to really take care of the band to not wet it. 
Being an old model, you have to press the power button to enable the sleep mode so as to track your sleep pattern. The app will then give you exact time when you slept and how many times you were awake along with light and sound sleep and many other splendid information about you. I missed the altimeter which can track as to how many stairs you have taken on this Jawbone UP24. 

Jawbone App can be linked to several other famous apps and also IFTTT has some recipes for the same to post your notifications across your social media channels. Using the app, you can also track several other features like food intake, water intake etc. 

Jawbone UP24 remained on my left hand for nearly 3 months, in which it gave me enough insights into my lifestyle. Though during that time, it developed an air bubble on the bottom part of the band and the only button it has fell off by itself. Considering those I had to ask for returns from Takealot and they gladly did the same.

But as I am using the other brand's fitness band, I am missing the "Smart Coach" which is simply the best across all the apps I have used or come across. It really makes it interesting and gives your real insights into your lifestyle. I would love to have a UP3 or UP4 to get the same insights and with several new features including Pay feature in latest band UP4.

Note: The images are taken from http://www.amazon.com/Jawbone-Activity-Tracker-Discontinued-Manufacturer/dp/B00GQB1JES as the images I took I am unable to find them at the moment.

@BangOlufsenSA Launched #BeoplayA1 #Bluetooth Speaker #CecilieManz

Hi Guys, 

Bang and Olufsen PLAY announced the smallest and most adventurous member in its family of portable Bluetooth speakers, Beoplay A1. Designed for life on the go, the Beoplay A1 combines beautiful Danish design by award-winning Cecilie Manz, signature sound by Bang and Olufsen, a speakerphone for taking calls out loud and up to 24 hours of battery life that keeps the music playing long after most competitors have gone silent.

“People today seek elegance, simplicity and flexibility in the way they live with music. They want their speaker to deliver a rich and beautiful soundscape for their home as well as seamless portability for life on the go”, says Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, Corporate VP of B/O PLAY. “With the Beoplay A1 we have pushed the boundaries of the ultra-portable speaker category and empowered people to take powerful sound and beautiful design anywhere they choose”. 
@BangOlufsenSA #BeoPlayA1 Bluetooth #TheLifesWay #PhotoYatra
Designed for everyday adventures
Beoplay A1 comes with a beautifully contoured aluminium dome, which gives it a light and elegant appearance and forms a strong protective housing for the technologies within. The dome conforms seamlessly to the double moulded polymer base presenting a completely smooth and continuous surface. 

As part of the design, there are no protruding buttons or legs to snag, and the surface of Beoplay A1 is completely smooth and robust enough to handle the bumps and scrapes of everyday use. It comes with a soft leather strap inviting you to carry it everywhere, attach it to a rucksack on the go, or to hang it anywhere in your home.
@BangOlufsenSA #BeoPlayA1 Cycle #TheLifesWay #PhotoYatra
“We wanted to make a portable speaker that people would not leave at home. The size and shape of the speaker invites you to pick it up and bring it with you as the most natural thing. The combination of premium materials, cool aluminium, soft polymer and the warm touch of leather makes it almost desirable to hold. I like the fact that the rounded, circular shape very clearly indicates the sharing of sound while lying on the table”, says designer Cecilie Manz.

Signature sound by Bang and Olufsen 
Building on more than 90 years of sound expertise, the Beoplay A1 sets new standards for portable Bluetooth speakers on sound dispersion, volume and bass characteristics. Using a unique dedicated DSP algorithm with advanced high slope filtering, Beoplay A1 is able to create a spacious 360-degree soundscape. This provides listeners with the same beautiful sound experience wherever they are located. Despite its compact footprint, measuring just 133mm x 48mm (5.2” x 1.9”) with a weight of only 600g (1.3 pounds), the speaker’s fully active, two way design using an aluminium cone mid woofer, a silk dome ¾” tweeter and advanced DSP filtering will wow you with crisp, loud and clear audio. Thanks to a new aluminium Cone Mid-Woofer using a powerful neodymium magnetic system and high peak power amps, the Beoplay A1 delivers a full range deep bass to as low as 40hz and enough stamina to keep the music playing for hours on end. 
@BangOlufsenSA #BeoPlayA1 Speakers #TheLifesWay #PhotoYatra
24 hours of portable playtime
Beoplay A1 comes with a rechargeable 2200mAh Li-Ion battery that provides up to 24 hours portable playtime during everyday use. This industry-leading standard is delivered by the inventive amp control. The Adaptive Power Management makes it possible to feed the exact amount of power needed by the amplifiers - and only when they need it. This means the power supply changes dynamically for increased battery life. 

@BangOlufsenSA #BeoPlayA1 White #TheLifesWay #PhotoYatra
Speakerphone for business and pleasure
Beoplay A1 has a built-in speakerphone for taking calls out loud, and the patent-pending rimmed design on the speaker’s bottom edge enables the microphone to provide uniform 360 speech sensitivity. This enables the person listening to recognize voices perfectly, no matter where people are speaking in proximity to the microphone. 

Easy access to your favourite music
Pressing the circular connect button on the side of the speaker will reconnect the speaker to the last used device and instantly play the last song you heard. Going forward the connect button will receive updates to add even more functionality to the speaker. 
@BangOlufsenSA #BeoPlayA1 Green #Thelifesway #photoyatra
Price and availability
Beoplay A1 launches in moss green and natural and is available for a suggested retail price at R 4 999. Both colours will be available in B/O stores, on www.beoplay.com/beoplaya1 and in selected third party retailers from April 21 2016.

About The Designer

In September 2014, she won the Danish Crown Prince Couple’s Culture Award for her contribution to design.

#ACE Program To Promote #Entrepreneurship In #Campuses @A2ZeeCo #IndiPR

Hi Guys, 

Whole world is talking about the growing start-up ecosystem in India. Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi also did ‘Start-up India’ initiative to promote entrepreneurship amongst Indians. A lot many new companies are coming up, but still the number is not enough considering the scale of innovation needed in India. Lately we have seen many copy-paste ideas in Indian market, but India needs original ideas that are developed keeping in mind the situation, people and market of India. We are seeing that college students have started talking about start-up, it is now the hottest canteen gossip topic. But how many students are starting-up? Very less.

A start-up and its founding team has taken lead in promoting entrepreneurship in campuses and in motivating students to start their companies by overcoming the fear of failure and social norms.
ACE - A2Zee Campus Entrepreneurship Program #thelifesway #photoyatra
A2ZEE, an online marketplace for Internet Business Services with virtual currency at its core, is a much talked about fin-tech startup started by a very young and dynamic team. A start-up whose founding team members became entrepreneurs while still being at college.

A2ZEE is starting its much awaited ACE (A2ZEE College Entrepreneur) program which focuses on promoting entrepreneurship, and rewarding/certifying college students for their leadership, marketing, communication and entrepreneurial skills.

Total 50 students will be selected from campuses across India. These 50 prodigies will promote entrepreneurship on their campus and take lead in promoting A2ZEE at various global platforms. All Campus Entrepreneurs will get certificates, rewards and entry to A2ZEE partner events across the globe. A few who stand out from the crowd and out-perform others will get a chance to be part of Team A2ZEE, join them full time and live their start-up dream with A2ZEE.

By being part of ACE, students will be able to overcome their fear, get answers to their questions and get guidance and support in starting their start-up.

Very few start-ups actually do something like this to promote entrepreneurship. A2ZEE stands out because of many reasons, one being the ACE program. Check more information at http://www.a2zee.co/ace/ Follow them on twitter and facebook
