    How to Buy: The Ideal Headphones 

    Highlights The first decision is which form of fit you prefer: in ears, on ears or over ears. Headphones are available in all budgets, so how much you spend is up to you. You can get an excellent pair of headphones for about Rs. 12,000. Buying headphones is a lot more complicated than it seems, because of the sheer volume of options spread across various price ranges. Headphones also come in different shapes, sizes and fits, which makes it important to decide exactly what kind of headphones you want based on how you intend to use them. Follow our guide to make it a bit easier.

    How much should I spend?
    This entirely depends on how much you’re willing to budget yourself for your headphones. Good options exist from as little as Rs. 150 to as high as Rs. 36,00,000, so you’re spoiled for choice. This also depends on your enthusiasm for good sound, as you will typically have to pay more for better sound. However, as a basic indication, it’s possible to get excellent headphones for about Rs. 10,000 – Rs. 12,000. The cost of quality increases exponentially after that, giving you only incremental improvements despite a large increase in the price. If you’re reading this post, you’re probably still starting your collection of audio gear, so it’s best to keep the budget within this limit for now.

    The Dangers of Free, Public Wi-Fi – and How to Keep Yourself Safe 

    Highlights Public Wi-Fi networks are a boon but can also be a threat if not careful Most common attacks include man-in-the-middle, malware and spoofing Stay safe by using a VPN and avoiding rogue networks

    Imagine this scenario: you’ve just landed in a new city. What’s the first thing you would think of doing? Head to the luggage belt? Visit the washroom? No – it would typically be scanning for free Wi-Fi networks at the airport. It’s sort of an automatic reaction that has developed ever since the smartphone boom.

    It’s not just airports though, as today, you can find free Wi-Fi pretty much everywhere – in malls, coffee shops, public transport, restaurants and in 2016, we’re going to see this increase ten-fold with big conglomerates like Google as well and the Government stepping in to make public Wi-Fi ubiquitous in India. It’s a great idea, and one that’s been widely praised.

    However, one of the pitfalls of public Wi-Fi is that it’s easily open to attacks from hackers. According to Norton’s Cybersecurity Insights Report, millennials seem to be the most vulnerable to attacks as most of their work, business, and socialising is done online. The report also found 77 percent of Indians would be devastated if their personal financial information was compromised and around 52 percent have experienced credit card fraud, or know someone who has.

    Jagdish Mahapatra, Managing Director for Intel Security, India and SAARC, tells Gadgets 360 that the firm’s recent study for India highlighted that diet or fitness related promotional links are something that cyber criminals run on a regular basis. He also states that 78 percent of Indian consumers consider dangers of unsafe online search terms but click on promotional diet

    How to Make Google Forget Your Most Embarrassing Searches 

    Highlights Google has a new tool called My Activity The tool makes it easier to see what Google is stockpiling about you You can delete whatever you want

    Google probably knows you better than your closest friends and family. With every search you make or YouTube video you watch, the search giant is quietly collecting information for a personalized profile it uses to serve you targeted ads. But a new tool called My Activity makes it easier than ever to see what information that Google is stockpiling about you – and delete things you’d rather it forget. Here’s what you need to know about this new tool and how it can help you manage your privacy.

    So what exactly is My Activity?
    It’s basically a timeline that shows you what Google has saved about your online activities going back as far as Google has been tracking them. You can find it by going to https://myactivity.google.com. (Note: You’ll probably be prompted to re-enter your password as a security measure.) Once you’ve made it in, there should be a big chronological list of things you’ve done using Google’s services – the searches you’ve made, videos you’ve watched on YouTube, and so on (assuming you haven’t already used Google’s privacy controls to block the collection of certain information, of course).

    You can even search through the data trove to look up a specific record or activity Google has saved – like maybe the time you searched for a home remedy for plantar warts – or filter the timeline by date or type of activity.

    And you said I could delete things?
    Yup! If you don’t want Google remembering that plantar warts search or when you binged watched videos of a cat in a shark costume riding a Roomba, it’s pretty simple to erase. First, you need to find the record you want to delete, which is made easy with the search bar at the top of the page. Once you’ve found the shameful bit of your online past in the timeline, you can open a little menu by clicking on the three vertical dots on the right end of the record. Select the delete option on that menu, and voila – Google will forget it!

    You can also delete things in bulk by clicking on the three dot menu at the top of the timeline, choose “Delete activity by” and selecting a date range to erase on the next page. If you want an entirely blank slate, opt for the “All Time” option.

    What if I want Google to stop tracking this sort of data?
    You’re in luck! You can “pause” Google’s data collection whenever you want. To lock things down, head to https://myaccount.google.com/activitycontrols. From there, you can tell Google to stop saving information about things such as your searches, location history, and YouTube watching habits.

    But if looking back through your My Activity timeline has you a little paranoid, it’s probably also worth running through Google’s Privacy Checkup. That feature, which can be found at https://myaccount.google.com/privacycheckup/, uses a simple interface to not only help you manage what data is being saved by Google, but also things like what information about you may be public through services like Google

    Pokemon Go iOS: How to Download Pokemon Go for iPhone, iPad 

    Highlights Pokemon Go for iOS is available via App Store. You need to create a new Apple ID. It is a free download, no credit card needed.

    It is quite easy to download and install Pokemon Go on Android, but plenty of readers have written to us asking for a way to download the game on their iPhone. If Pokemon Go is available in your region, all you need to do is head to the App Store and download the app. The catch is that it’s only been officially released in a handful of regions.

    (Also see: Pokemon Go Player? Here’s How Much Mobile Data You Can Expect to Burn)

    Pokemon Go: How to Catch Pikachu 

    Highlights Pokemon Go is available for free on Android, iOS Pikachu is an uncommon Pokemon in Pokemon Go This is the only sureshot way to catch Pikachu

    If you’ve seen the Pokemon animated series, you probably have a soft spot for Pikachu, who is protagonist Ash Ketchum’s favourite Pokemon. There are many Pikachu fans who haven’t been able to find it in Pokemon Go. It’s a rare Pokemon in the game, and this guide offers the only sureshot way of catching it.

    (Also see: Pokemon Go Review)

    The bad news is that it only works for new accounts. If you’ve already been playing the game, you’ll have to start over with a new Google account or create a new Pokemon Trainer Club account. If you don’t mind starting over, follow these steps.

    (Also see: How to Play Pokemon Go in India? Here’s Everything You Need to Know)

    Download Pokemon Go on Android or Install Pokemon Go for iOSSign up with a new Google or Pokemon Trainer Club account.Professor Willow will offer you a choice of three Pokemon – Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur. Ignore all three and walk away.When you are sufficiently far from them, the same three Pokemon will spawn again near you. Ignore them again and walk away.Repeat this step at least twice more and you’ll notice that Pikachu has appeared alongside the aforementioned three Pokemon.Tap on Pikachu, throw the Pokeball and catch it.

    (Also see: Pokemon Go Tips and Tricks)

    The number of times you need to walk away until Pikachu spawns varies. We tried this with two new accounts and once it appeared after we ignored the original three Pokemon four times and the other time it appeared after we ignored them five times. Just be patient and make sure you ignore the original Pokemon no matter how tempting it might be to start catching them.

    (Also see: How to Download Pokemon Go on iPhone)

    There’s a small chance that you’ll find Pikachu in the wild but it is definitely not common. If you’re really attached to it, then this method is probably your best bet to catch it.

    Did you catch any of Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, or Bulbasaur in the wild? Let us know via the comments or post where you caught it on our forum. For more tutorials visit our How To section.

    How to Manually Download and Install MIUI 8 Right Now 

    Highlights Few Xiaomi devices are eligible for an OTA update Other compatible devices can manually flash their devices to MIUI 8 The China Stable ROM will be made available in a few days

    Xiaomi has started rolling out the MIUI 8 Global Stable ROM to all eligible devices. Initially, MIUI 8 Global Stable ROM over-the-air (OTA) update is restricted to only a few devices, which means that the others will have to manually download and install the build if they wish to use it immediately.

    Xiaomi Redmi 1S, Mi 2, Mi 2S, Mi 4i, Redmi Note 3G, and Redmi Note 4G will receive the MIUI 8 via an OTA update starting Tuesday, and all they need to do is wait it out patiently for a notification. They can alternatively even check in their Updater app, to see if the update has arrived or not.

    For the Redmi 2 and Redmi Note 2, Xiaomi says some users will receive the update from Tuesday, but the rest will start receiving it from Thursday.

    For the rest of the devices, Xiaomi has promised the update rollout sometime in the ‘near future,’ which is very vague. The devices with no immediate update are Redmi 2, Redmi 2 Prime, Redmi Note 3 Qualcomm, Redmi Note 3 Special Edition, , Redmi Note Prime, Redmi 3, Redmi 3S, Redmi 3S Prime, Mi 2S, Mi 3, Mi 4, Mi 5, Mi Note, and Mi Max 32GB. No ROM download links are available for these devices either. 

    For those who have the Redmi 1S, Mi 2, Mi 2S, Mi 4i, Redmi Note 3G, and Redmi Note 4G however, they can download and install the corresponding ROMs from Xiaomi’s website. Follow the below highlighted steps on how to download and install the MIUI 8 Global Stable ROM. However, ensure that you have backed up your files before proceeding.

    1) First step is to identify your smartphone and download the corresponding MIUI 8 build for your smartphone. For all the smartphones that have locked bootloaders, they need to be first unlocked. Follow the steps here. There are two methods of manually downloading – the Recovery Method and the Fastbooting Method. If Fastbooting, then you need to download the Mi Flash Tool from here.

    Mi 2 / Mi 2S – Recovery ROM

    Mi 2 / Mi 2S – Fastboot ROM

    Redmi 1S – Recovery ROM

    Redmi 1S – Fastboot ROM

    Mi 4i – Recovery ROM

    Mi 4i – Fastboot ROM

    Redmi Note 4G – Recovery ROM

    Redmi Note 4G – Fastboot ROM

    Redmi Note 3G – Recovery ROM

    Redmi 2 – Recovery ROM

    Redmi 2 – Fastboot ROM

    Redmi Note 2 – Recovery ROM

    Redmi Note 2 – Fastboot ROM

    Mi 5 – Recovery ROM

    Mi 5 – Fastboot ROM

    Redmi Note Prime – Recovery ROM

    Redmi Note Prime – Fastboot ROM

    Redmi Note 3 Qualcomm – Recovery ROM

    Redmi Note 3 Qualcomm – Fastboot ROM

    This list will be updated with new MIUI 8 Global Stable ROM links as Xiaomi makes them available.

    Most users should download the Recovery ROM for their smartphone. Flashing Recovery ROM will not wipe your user data or the files in internal storage and it’s simple to use, so unless you are planning to start afresh we suggest you follow this method. In both cases however, just in case something goes wrong, it is always recommended to back up your data and files first, like we mentioned earlier.

    2) Once you’ve downloaded the MIUI 8 Recovery ROM, rename the downloaded ROM file to update.zip on the computer.

    3) Connect your Xiaomi smartphone to your laptop via a Micro-USB cable, and copy the ROM file downloaded into the root directory of the internal storage of your device (do not put it in any other folder).

    4) Enter the Recovery mode of your device. There are 2 methods to do it as follows:

    Method 1: Launch Updater app on your device, click the menu icon at the top-right corner, and select Reboot to Recovery mode to enter.

    Method 2: You can also turn off your device and then hold both Volume

    Android Nougat: How to Download and Install Right Now 

    Highlights Android 7.0 is rolling out to Nexus devices It can be downloaded via an OTA update Alternatively you can get it via a beta program

    Android Nougat is rolling out to Nexus devices via an OTA update. You’ll get this update soon if you have any of the following devices: Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, General Mobile GM 4G, Nexus Player, Nexus 9, or Pixel C.

    The simplest way to get the update is to wait for it to show up on your phone, or check for the OTA update manually:

    How to download Android 7.0 Nougat via OTA update
    Over-the-air (OTA) updates are the easiest way to download Android 7.0 Nougat. Follow these steps to check if you’ve received the update.

    Open Settings > About > System updates. Tap Check for updates.

    If the update shows up here, you can download and install Android Nougat on your Nexus device. If it hasn’t showed up, you should ideally wait until it does. If you don’t want to wait, read on.

    (Also see: Android 7.0 Nougat Is Here: 8 New Features You Need to Know About)

    How to download Android 7.0 Nougat via Android Beta Program
    If the OTA update hasn’t appeared yet, you can try installing Android 7.0 Nougat via the beta program. The release build is available for some devices such as the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi), and Pixel C via this method.

    We strongly recommend that you back up your Android device before attempting an update. For devices that don’t have the release build, this method will install a preview version and you could lose data and apps could stop working properly.

    Visit g.co/androidbeta on your desktop or mobile browser. Sign into your Google account associated with your eligible Nexus device. Scroll down and tap Enrol Device. Once you’re enrolled, go to Settings > About > System updates. Now you’ll see details about the update including a build name in the second line. This appears in brackets after Android N. The release build name is NRD90M for Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel C, and Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi). If the build name on your device starts with NP, it’s a preview build, and we suggest you don’t install it. To remove your device from the beta program, go to http://g.co/androidbeta, sign in and tap Unenrol Device. If you’ve updated to a release build of Android 7.0 Nougat, unenrolling your device will not remove the update.

    How to manually download and install Android 7.0 Nougat
    The beta program is the simplest way of getting the Android Nougat right now, but if you don’t want to do that for some reason, you can try another way. We don’t recommend installing Android 7.0 Nougat using this method and flashing is a process that could wipe your data if something goes wrong. Be sure to take a full backup of all your data and proceed at your own risk, if you must:

    Install the latest Android Debug Bridge (ADB) tool on your PC. This installs the ADB program, which can be accessed through the command terminal on your PC. Add the folder where you’ve installed ADB to the PATH by following these steps: Right click My Computer and click on Properties. Click on Advanced System Settings. Click on System Properties > Advanced > Environment Variables. In the window, select Path, then click on Edit, and then type in the name of the directory where you installed the SDK, and remember that each entry is separated by a semi-colon. Enable USB debugging on your device. First, go to Settings > About Phone > Software information. Tap Build number seven times. Go to Settings > Developer options. Tick USB debugging. Download the correct OTA binary for your device:
    Nexus 6P
    Nexus 5X
    Pixel C
    Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi)
    Nexus Player
    Links for other devices were not available at the time of writing; we will update the post as and when more links become available. Connect your device to your computer over USB, and make sure USB debugging is enabled as described above. Via the ADB tool, go to the command terminal and execute the following: adb reboot recovery. Your device is now in recovery mode, and users will see an Android logo with a red exclamation on their display. Hold the power button and press the volume up key once, and you will be shown a menu. Within the menu, select Apply update from ADB. Remember, volume keys help you navigate up and down, while the power button makes a selection. Run the following command on the ADB tool via your PC: adb sideload (ota file.zip). Do replace the ‘ota file.zip’ in the command with the actual name of the OTA file you have downloaded. Once the update finishes installing, users should choose the option Reboot system now.

    That will install Android 7.0 Nougat on your Nexus device. For more tutorials, visit our How To section.

    How and Where to Get Reliance Jio SIM Card 

    Highlights Anyone can get a Reliance Jio starting Monday The process is simple, but you need to keep a few things in mind Reliance Jio services are free to use until December 31

    The entry of Reliance Jio into India’s already crowded telecom market is expected to shake things up, and that’s an understatement. Reliance Jio tariffs and rollout plans were announced Thursday by Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani at the company’s AGM in Mumbai. He unveiled Reliance Jio’s highly-anticipated 4G service with a bouquet of offers and services.

    The biggest highlight, which grabbed everyone’s eyeballs during the launch, was Reliance Jio’s ‘free voice calls’, even on roaming. Yes, you read that right. Mukesh Ambani revealed that there will be no charges while making calls anywhere in India, and the users will only pay for mobile data.

    (Also see: Reliance Jio Postpaid Plans Detailed: What You Need to Know)

    How to Delete Google Voice Search History 

    Highlights Google records all voice searches This can be disabled easily You can delete all of your voice searches

    By now, most of us know that Google knows just about everything about you, even the bits you’ve forgotten. For a company whose entire business model is tracking all of your data to serve ads, it should come as no surprise that Google tracks all of your voice searches too. Asked Google to open apps or to call someone? Google has a recording stored on its servers.

    According to Google, this is to serve you better search results. However, Google doesn’t explicitly tell you that it’s storing your voice online. Surprisingly enough Google lets you delete all of this voice search data. It’s not visible to anyone other than you and Google. If you want to delete the data, follow these steps.

    How to Use Jio4GVoice to Make Calls on Reliance Jio and All You Need to Know 

    Highlights Jio4G Voice allows you to make VoLTE calls from any phone It can connect a 3G phone to a JioFi device to make calls You can also use it from your 4G phone directly

    It’s been a couple of weeks since the launch of Reliance Jio. The telco has attractive plans and is free to use till December 31, so naturally, a lot of people would like to start using Jio.

    The catch is that Reliance Jio runs fully on 4G so unless you have a compatible phone, you’re not going to be able to use the network. If your phone doesn’t support 4G (for data) and VoLTE (for calls), you’ll not going to be able to use Jio.

    If that’s the case, you have two options. One, you could buy a new phone – here are our top picks of phones that support Jio – or two, you can use the company’s Jio4GVoice app, available on Android. Jio4GVoice, which was initially launched as JioJoin, is a dialer for Reliance Jio that can be used to make “rich” calls from your Jio phone, or to use Jio without a 4G capable phone. This only works with a Jio connection – you either have to have a Jio SIM in your phone, or be connected to a JioFi device. Here’s how it works.

    How to download and setup Jio4GVoice app?
    The steps given outline how to use the Jio4GVoice app. In the next section, we talk about whether you need to use it at all.

    First, install the app on your phone, using the MyJio app or install directly from the Play Store. If you’re using a 3G phone, the app will ask you to connect to your JioFi Wi-Fi network. If you’re using a 4G phone, it’ll use the 4G network to connect to Jio. Once the app is connected, it’ll verify your Jio connection. Then you’ve got to tap Get started to, well, get started. Next, you’re asked to make Jio your default SMS app. You can just tap No on this message if you prefer.

    Now Jio4GVoice is set up. You can use it as your dialler to call someone or send them an SMS.

    How to make calls with Jio4GVoice app?
    Follow these steps:

    Tap on a contact. Now, just put your phone to your ear to start the call. If you’re calling another Jio user, you can also “prepare” the call. You can tap on the camera icon on the left to send an image, the location icon in the middle to send your location, or the urgent call icon on the right to mark the call as urgent, with a short message. You can tap the video icon on the bottom left to place a video call. Or you can tap the phone icon on the bottom right to place a voice call.

    So that’s how it works.

    Where Are Shuffle and Repeat Options in iPhone’s Music App? 

    Highlights The shuffle and repeat buttons are hidden in iOS 10’s Music app This won’t bother anyone using older iOS versions Once you find the button, it’s easy to toggle the option

    If you’re on iOS 10, you’ve probably been using the new Music app. The app got a revamp in iOS 10 on both the iPhone and the iPad and the design now is pretty good. You’d have noticed this particularly if you use Apple Music. Much as we love the new design, it has some flaws. The shuffle and repeat buttons are hidden and there are no cues in the UI to point to their location. If you’ve haven’t been able to find it, just follow these steps on your iPhone or iPad:

    Open the Music app. Play any song from an album or a playlist. Tap the Now Playing bar at the bottom of the screen. This has the name of the song currently playing along with a tiny thumbnail of album art. This should pull up the Now Playing window. Scroll up just a little until you see Up Next. To the right of Up Next you’ll see two buttons. The first one is shuffle and the second one is repeat. Tap the shuffle button to toggle shuffle on or off. It’s on if it has a pink background. You can tap the repeat button twice to play one song on loop.


    That’s how you toggle shuffle and repeat opt on iOS 10’s Music app. Did you have trouble finding these buttons? Do you think the Music app should add some cues to show that shuffle and repeat are hidden? Let us know via the comments. For more tutorials, head to our How To section.

    How to Copy-Paste Text and Images Between Your iPhone and Mac 

    Highlights You can copy items on iOS and paste on Mac and vice-versa This works with iOS 10 and macOS Sierra Use the same iCloud account on all devices

    Universal clipboard was one of the headline features announced at WWDC 2016. This is the ability to copy items on one Apple device and paste them on another. This works across iOS and macOS devices and is a neat feature to have if you keep switching between your Apple devices.

    (Also see: What We Love and Hate About iOS 10)

    Here’s a list of devices that are compatible with Apple’s universal clipboard feature:

    iPhone 5 or newer iPad Pro iPad (4th generation) iPad Air or newer iPad mini 2 or newer iPod touch (6th generation) or newer MacBook (Early 2015 or newer) MacBook Pro (2012 or newer) MacBook Air (2012 or newer) Mac mini (2012 or newer) iMac (2012 or newer) Mac Pro (Late 2013)


    This feature works only on iOS 10 and macOS Sierra so be sure to update your devices to these operating systems first. Once you have done that, here’s how to enable universal clipboard on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac:

    Sign in to the same iCloud account on all devices. On iOS, head to Settings > iCloud to check your iCloud account. On macOS, open System Preferences > iCloud and check it matches with what you noticed in step 2. Switch on Bluetooth on all your devices. On iOS, head to Settings > Bluetooth to do this. On macOS, open System Preferences > Bluetooth to switch on Bluetooth. Switch on Wi-Fi on all of your devices On iOS, head to Settings > Wi-Fi. On macOS, click the Wi-Fi icon on the top bar.


    Once you’ve done all of these things, universal copy-paste should start working. Just copy anything on your iOS devices and paste on your Mac. There are no toggles or switches to enable this. It should start working on its own. You can use this to copy text and images between your iPhone and Mac, though text formatting may not always be preserved, depending upon the apps you are using.

    Note that for universal clipboard to work all devices need not be on the same Wi-Fi network, but Wi-Fi and Bluetooth need to be switched on, and the devices need to be close to each other, though Apple doesn’t specify what ‘close’ means. We tested this with a MacBook Air connected to a Wi-Fi network and an iPhone on 4G, and universal copy-paste worked just fine.

    Is this a useful feature? Have you been using it? Let us know via the comments. For more tutorials, head to our How To section.
