Motorola Moto Z2 Play Review [With Video]: With Moto Mods, It’s the Real Flagship Killer

Moto Z phones along with Moto Mods were a welcome break from the regular spec sheet race last year. While the ‘modular’ Moto Z series phones are competitively priced, Moto Mods are expensive. To this, Managing Director of Motorola Mobility India Sudhin Mathur said, “Innovation comes at a price. You decide whether you want more RAM or something really new and innovative.”

While the older Moto Z Play smartphone is still selling for Rs 24,999, the second generation, Moto Z2 Play, offers a better design and upgraded hardware for the price of Rs 27,999. Both the Moto Z Play phones essentially focus on the overall "modular" experience in a budget rather than just a mere spec-sheet comparisons. So, what can a first-time Moto Mod user expect and should Moto Z Play users upgrade to the latest edition? Let’s find out in this review. 

google docs to wordpressWe love WordPress, but it can also be frustrating sometimes when it doesn’t work flawlessly with another platform or integration. A lot of you are business owners and bloggers which have to deal with content creation for your sites on a regular basis. More often than not this is done via Google Docs because it is super easy for people to share drafts and collaborate in real-time for free. However, when it comes to moving from Google Docs to WordPress, this is where things get messy, as much of your formatting is lost or breaks. And it soon becomes a WordPress publisher’s nightmare. Check out these four tricks to help make working with Google Docs and WordPress a little easier.

The Issue With Google Docs and WordPress

It is no question that Google Docs is probably one of the most popular platforms when it comes to online document sharing and editing. Microsoft Office 365 is really its only competitor. In fact, if we take a look at Google Trends for “Google Docs,” you can see that over the past 5 years interest around it has been steadily increasing. Google Docs is completely free to use and that is why it has become a popular tool for content creators, bloggers, and writers.

google docs trendsGoogle Docs trends
So let’s dive into the real issue. Let’s say you hire a writer to put together an article for your blog. They put together the draft in a Google Doc and send you a link so you can take a look and approve it. Perhaps you make a few edits and then are ready to move it into your WordPress site. Typically you would simply copy and paste the contents from your Google Doc into the WordPress visual editor. But what happens, in reality, is that this results in all sorts of formatting issues.
Below is an example Google Doc we are going to use. So we select all the content and copy it to our clipboard.

Google Doc example
We then go over to our WordPress editor and paste it. The first issue you have is that typically there will be extra line breaks in-between paragraphs, even though in the Google Doc there is literally only one line break.

google doc exampleGoogle Docs to WordPress spacing issue
Google Docs to WordPress spacing issue
It gets worse though, if we take a look at the text and or code view of it, here is what it looks like. You can see that all of this extra unecessary code is being added.

google docs to wordpress span style font weight 400
Google Docs to WordPress span style issue
Extra lines breaks are being added inserting this code.
When you copy from Google Docs to WordPress it creates extra span styles everywhere.
<span style="font-weight: 400;"> </span>
When you copy from Google Docs to WordPress and have lists it creates extra font-weights styles.
<li style="font-weight: 400;">
So basically you are left with a mess in your code. And even if you ignore the code, which you shouldn’t, you would still have the line breaks everywhere. On a 2,000+ document this is a lot of backspacing to be done to fix it. And your are still left with underlying code which really should be fixed. This is a huge waste of time. It can also affect your performance. Yes, it is at a very minimal level, but even HTML makes up your overall total page weight. So what can you do about it? Well, follow the tricks below.
Note: It is important to know that Office 365 Word doesn’t have the same issue with span styles and font weight. However, it still has the spacing issues when copying across to the WordPress editor. Also, you might be wondering about images. Images don’t copy across either, but you should generally upload those separately anyways. Images should be compressed, as well as strategically naming the file for SEO purposes. That’s right, even image files names matter when it comes to SEO.

Google Docs to WordPress

It’s kind of surprising that these issues are still happening 2017, and we are curious why they aren’t being discussed more in the WordPress community. We personally know a lot of you writers out there are using Google Docs. We use it as well. Thankfully, there are a few tricks you can use to make your workflow from Google Docs to WordPress less painful and streamlined.

1. Trick to Clear Formatting

The first little trick is a little weird, but it works, and involves a simple copy and paste a couple times along with utilizing the clear formatting button. Follow the steps below to get quickly clean up the formatting.
Retain Google Docs to #WordPress formatting with this simple trick! 😂 Click to Tweet

Step 1

Copy and paste the contents from Google Docs into your WordPress Visual Editor as normal. Select your text and copy it again to your clipboard.

Step 2

It sounds weird, but create a new temporary blank post draft by clicking into “Add New” under posts in your dashboard. Then paste the content again from your first post that you just copied. When you paste this the second time it will automatically clean up the extra line breaks.

Step 3

Then copy and paste the contents from your temporary draft back into your original post. Highlight all of the content and click on the “Clear formatting” button in the visual toolbar editor. This will remove the span styles, and font weights. This trick retains all of the headers (h1, H2, H3, etc.). The only thing it doesn’t retain is the bold. If you need to retain every 100%, then check out trick 2 and 3.

And here is an example of the text and or code view after the steps above. As you can see, it is as clean as a whistle.

Now you can continue to work with writers and bloggers using Google Docs and it won’t slow down your workflow. All it takes is a simple copy and paste a couple times and using the clear formatting button.
For some of you, this may not matter that much. But for those of you who use both Google Docs and WordPress a lot, this might just be a lifesaver! We use this trick ourselves every day. When we originally went to find a solution we even were going as far as converting to Markdown and then moving back into WordPress. Little did we know, all it took was a simple copy and paste, plus clearing the formatting, which gets you to almost near perfect.

2. Use Wordable to Easily Move Google Docs to WordPress

The second option you have is to use a premium service called Wordable. This was actually created for the very problem we described above, and that is, there has not been a good solution to move Google Docs to WordPress. Basically with Wordable you can draft and collaborate in Google Docs as normal. When you are ready, there is a one-click button import to your WordPress site. It retains all your tags, headers, bold, bullets, italics, and even your images.
They have a free plan which allows you to give it a try. It comes with unlimited free exports for 24 hours and 2 free exports after that. You can hook it up to one WordPress site. If you need more exports and the ability to export to multiple WordPress sites the premium version is $19/month. While this does sound costly, if you use Google Docs on a daily basis, this service definitely pays for itself.
The two possible cons for some is that you have to give them access to your Google Drive as well as your WordPress site (with the plugin). This might be an issue for those concerned with security. We would personally love to see a 3rd party, standalone exporter. Follow the steps below on how to easily export from Google Docs to WordPress.

Step 1

Sign up over at Wordable for a free account. It will ask for permission to your Google Drive.

Step 2

Add your WordPress site under Settings and download and install the plugin.

Step 3

Search for the document in your Google Drive list and click on “Export to WordPress.” This will create a draft of the article on your WordPress site.

Step 4

Click on the “Published as Draft” link or visit your WordPress dashboard to examine the post.

And here is how it looks in the WordPress editor. All the formatting came across perfectly, no extra code. And even the image came across.

Also, as far as the images goes, when you upload an image to Google Docs, it actually does retain its filename. So if you instruct writers beforehand to name their images for SEO purposes, it will then follow through if you are exporting using Wordable.  Otherwise, if they don’t. We would recommend re-uploading all of your images, which could be a pain.

Images exported from Wordable also go directly to your WordPress media library which means they can be compressed with a third party image optimization plugin. As you can see, Wordable can be a very fast and effective option if you need something to export from Google Docs to WordPress and retain all the formatting.

3. Jetpack and Chrome Extension

Another solution is to use Jetpack, along with their free Chrome extension. One thing to be aware of though is that JetPack does add additional requests to your site, and it requires things such as XML-RPC and the JSON API to be enabled for it to function.

Step 1

You can download Jetpack from the WordPress repository, or by searching for it within your WordPress dashboard under “Add New” plugins.

Step 2

Upon activation you will need to connect Jetpack to

Step 3

Then install the free to Google Docs Chrome extension. You will have to give it permission to access your documents.

Step 4

Then in Google Docs click on “Add-ons” and select “ for Google Docs.” Then on the right hand side you can click on “Save” and it will create a post in your WordPress site.

And here is how it looks in the WordPress editor. All the formatting came across perfectly, no extra code. And even the image came across, along with the image filename.

4. Give Writers a WordPress Account

The last option you have is to simply create WordPress accounts for your writers and require that they create everything entirely within the WordPress editor. For some, this might be a better solution, but there are also a lot of companies that don’t want to have to worry about managing author accounts.
WordPress essentially contains six different user roles. For authors and writers you will probably want to choose one of the following, based upon what you want them to have access to:
  • Author: somebody who can publish and manage their own posts.
  • Contributor: somebody who can write and manage their own posts but cannot publish them.
To create an account for a writer simply click on “Add New” under Users in your WordPress dashboard and assign the role you want them to have.

give writer wordpress account
Give writer access to your site
You could even take this a step further with a permissions plugin like the User Role Editor. But even with correct roles and permissions setup, letting more people access to your WordPress dashboard still weakens your overall security. Just make sure you are careful when adding accounts for people you don’t know.


If you work with writers who use Google Docs a lot, or perhaps you are a writer, hopefully, one of the above tricks and recommendations will help speed up your workflow. And perhaps one day we can simply copy and paste directly from Google Docs to WordPress without having to do anything! The team at Wordable definitely have the right idea going.
What are your thoughts? Have you struggled with the Google Docs formatting issue as well? If so, let us know below.

Paytm has launched a new payment mode, Tap Card, that it is promoting as India's first "truly offline payments solution." It is a card that uses NFC to transfer money on company-authorised Point of Sale (PoS) terminals, and is aimed at non-Internet users. The Paytm Tap Card uses enables safe and convenient digital payments with the help of NFC, completely offline at Paytm-issued PoS terminals in under a second, the company says. To make payments, users can add money from their Paytm account by scanning the QR code on the Tap Card and by authenticating it at any of the add value machines (AVM).
Paytm Tap Card Launched, Allows Offline Payments in Less Than a Second
It also addresses any network-related concerns at the consumers' or merchants' end. Paytm is partnering with events, educational institutes and corporates in the first phase to enable quick digital payments using the Tap Card. The customer has to simply tap the card at a merchant terminal to pay, offering them a mode of payment through Paytm even while they are not carrying their phones. "We are aggressively pushing digital payments to users from every walk of life. There are a large number of people who at times do not have access to the Internet or they have a limited daily budget so they shy away from using online payments.
For them, we offer the Paytm Tap Card to enable seamless offline payments. For ensuring a wider acceptance, we are also reaching out to the merchants and are actively enabling them with NFC PoS terminals to accept payments without Tap Card. This is a true testimony of our commitment to understanding the needs of our users and creating innovative solutions around it," said Kiran Vasireddy, COO of Paytm. Disclosure: Paytm's parent company One 97 is an investor in Gadgets 360.

WhatsApp payments are on the way - What you should know
Popular instant messaging app WhatsApp may soon get a built-in payments feature. The Facebook-owned company is said to be already beta testing the platform with its banking partners. Recently, the company also rolled out its WhatsApp for Business app. It is likely that the app too may have some kind of integration with the payments feature. Here's all you need to know about the upcoming feature...
1. May launch as soon as next month The payments facility in WhatsApp may comes as soon as February. According to a report in Economic Tmes, the platform is likely to go live for consumers by the end of February. The company is already running trials with its partners.
2. WhatsApp will act as a top layer According to the report, WhatsApp will act as a top layer that will identify both the sender and the recipient at the back-end. It further adds that since the app's payments platform will be integrated with banks, it will also identify the bank account of the customers. Finally, Unified Payments Interface (UPI) will help settle the transactions. WhatsApp is reportedly at various stages of integrating its UPI-based system with its banking partners.
3. ​UPI has emerged as the most popular payments platform Over the last few months, UPI has emerged as one of the fastest-growing payments instruments in the country. It is said to have reported 145 million transactions in the month of December 2017.
4. WhatsApp has already tied up with SBI, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank and Axis Bank The company has tied up with various leading banks in the country for the payment option. These reportedly include State Bank of India, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank and Axis Bank.
5. ​Got Indian government's permission in July 2017 The most-widely used messaging app in the country received Indian government's approval for UPI integration in July last year.
6. ​Security concerns need to be addressed before rollout A banking partner told ET that there are various security concerns that need to be addressed before the integration, especially with regard to customers' banking data. A senior banker told ET that to be able to send money as easily as a text message involves ensuring various levels of encryption to keep the data safe.
7. ​Rivals include Paytm, BHIM and Google Tez There's competition galore for WhatsApp in the space, with apps like Paytm, Google Tez and government's BHIM in the fray.

Pay With Google” Officially Launched In US; No Transaction Fee For Merchants!
Google has finally rolled out their much-awaited “Pay With Google” feature, which uses their Payment API, that was launched this year during Google I/O event.
Basically an aggregator for all sorts of payment mechanism, Pay With Google promises a speedy way to pay any merchant, online. And the best part? Merchants who are using this option to accept payment will not be required to pay any transaction fees as well.
On some levels, Google is attempting to match Apple Pay with its flexibility and ease of use.

Will Google succeed?

Pay With Google – The Instant Payment Method
In official blog post, Pali Bhat, VP of Product Management, Payments explained the very foundation of “Pay With Google”: Which is speed.

He said,
“If you’ve ever paid for something on your phone or tablet, you know just how frustrating checkout can be. Maybe you had to fill in a bunch of forms. Maybe your session timed out. Maybe you encountered an error and had to start all over again”
Promising an ultra fast way to pay any merchant online, this new feature is using Google’s Payment API which streamlines the process of payment processing.

As per the official blog, users can use any debit/credit card which has been added to their Google account from products such as Google Play, YouTube, Chrome or Android Pay.

When the user opts for “Pay With Google”, the API will extract all details from the Google account, and complete the payment with one single password.

This is how it will work, say, in the InstaCart app:

Which Merchants Are Using Pay With Google?

To start with, this feature has been launched in US and UK, in some selected online services and apps.
There are total of 15 such services, where Pay with Google can be used, which are: DoorDash, Dice, Yelp, Eat24, Fancy, Gametime, Hotel Urbano,, iFood, Instacart, Kayak,, Postmates, Peixe Urbano, Spot Hero. Very soon, this would be launched for Wish, Airbnb, Caviar, Deliveroo, Guzman y Gomez, Hotel Tonight, Hungry house, Just Eat, Papa Johns, StubHub and TicketCamp.
In May, when Google had launched their Payment API, they had stated that payment can also be done using voice command. For example, all you need to say is “Ok Google, send $10 to Jane for pizza.”, and $10 would be instantly debited from the card attached with your Google account.

Google has actually invited all developers to use their Payment API, and to use it on their websites and apps. Documentation can be found here.

Game of Thrones is a wildly unpredictable show with very predictable fans
Game of Thrones is a triple threat: great acting, excellent visual design, and twisting drama that’s consistently shocking and surprising. But it turns out that the opinions of the show’s fans are far easier to guess.
Tech Insider recently tapped review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes for a poll on a variety of Game of Thrones topics. More than 1,000 fans were asked to pick their favorite season, the show’s saddest death, its greatest hero, and more. But the surprising thing about these poll results is how fiercely they buck the strength of the show itself: they’re all predictable and conventional.
Take the show’s most shocking death, for example: Ned Stark won with 25 percent of the vote, with Jon Snow (18 percent) and Robb Stark (14 percent) trailing behind. In season 1, Daenerys is set up as a major character, but the Starks are treated as the show’s First Family, and Ned is as close to a main character as a revolving-cast show can have. The first season gives special attention to his family, his struggles in King’s Landing, and his righteous crusade to return the throne to its correct heir. And then Joffrey’s executioner chops off his head.
Ned’s death is a key moment in Game of Thrones, because it sends an important message to fans: anyone can be killed, as Ned’s daughter Arya would say. But more importantly, Ned’s death flips the traditional notion of a hero’s quest on its head. Ned is a good man with a righteous cause. But that isn’t enough to save him, or any character in the Game of Thrones universe. Author George R.R. Martin and the showrunners expanded on this idea in further seasons, with the death of characters like Robb Stark (slaughtered at a wedding, alongside his men, his mother, and his pregnant wife); Jon Snow (betrayed by his own men); or Oberyn Martell (head smashed like a melon as he tried to avenge his murdered sister). Where traditional stories would see all these men vindicated, their foes rightly punished, Martin prefers to break everyone’s hearts.
Oberyn doesn’t even crack the poll’s top three in shocking deaths, but in spite of what the poll-takers think, his demise is no less surprising than Ned’s or Robb’s. His character is introduced with a vendetta in mind, and he seems capable enough to accomplish it. During his fight with his murderer, Gregor Clegane (known as the Mountain), Oberyn easily has the upper hand — until he doesn’t. And in an instant, it’s over. In theory, his death is far less foreshadowed than Jon’s, because Jon has done a standup job of pissing off vindictive members of the Night’s Watch for several seasons. And he was raised with the Starks, a family that loses members left and right.
Fans share similarly unsurprising ideas about the show’s villains, love or hate them. Polled about Game of Thrones’ most satisfying death, they picked Joffrey (44 percent) and Ramsay Bolton (35 percent). No one else is even mentioned. It makes sense that those two men are universally despised. Neither character has any redeeming quality. They share a taste for torture, and they murder for entertainment. They’re petulant children who feel they deserve the vast, dangerous power that’s been handed to them. Joffrey’s death is perhaps no less quick or violent than say, Ned’s. But unlike the Stark patriarch, there’s a sense that the boy king has gotten what he deserves. It’s a long time coming.
And the poll winner for greatest villain is a logical choice, too. Cersei Lannister (44 percent, compared to a 22 percent vote for Ramsay) is a compelling foe because her character is complex, and at times, even relatable. She’s selfish and cruel, but she also acts out of love for her family and a desire to strike back against a patriarchy that’s dictated her entire life. She’s Game of Thrones’ best villain by a long shot, because she’s a perfect anti-hero — the kind of character whose successes are satisfying, even when that means blowing up one of the show’s best characters.
Game of Thrones has long been about eviscerating fans’ expectations and wishes, unapologetically, and often with bloody flair. But these common opinions among watchers point to an endearing trend, a shared idea of what constitutes good, evil, interesting, and ideal, even when the models for these ideas are far more nuanced than a single word can convey. Just look at the poll’s top alliance of Daenerys and Tyrion, compared to Jamie Lannister and Brienne, or Arya and the Hound. Dany and Tyrion are a slam-dunk for a good-guy team-up, where the other two duos have…complications. Jamie is as much of a miscreant as anyone, but he’s come a long way since he chucked a child out of a window. Over the course of six seasons, he’s demonstrated a real devotion to his family, and a loyalty to idealistic characters like Brienne.
Game of Thrones is a wildly unpredictable show with very predictable fans
Arya and the Hound, meanwhile, are the show’s best odd couple. Once dedicated to murdering the Hound, Arya seems to come around to Joffrey’s fire-fearing former pet. But when the Hound is gravely injured and begs for Arya to finish him off, Arya refuses. She leaves him to die, slowly, alone, with seemingly no remorse. It’s a cold move from any angle, as the two have built a strange sort of bond over the course of their travels.
And then there’s the character viewers most want to see on the Iron Throne: Daenerys. Dany is more devoted to justice than most of Game Of Thrones’ characters. Her desire to rule is coupled with her moves to free slaves and liberate cities. But even her quest has led to bloodshed, and her taking over cities is its own kind of colonization. Even her mission to rule Westeros — a land she barely remembers, that doesn’t seem to want her — could be placed on the same ambitious pedestal shared by characters like Cersei. Sure, she’s far more likely to be a kind of just queen, but she’s burning bodies to get there.
Dany taking back her birthright, the seat she’s craved for what will eventually be eight entire seasons, would be one of the show’s best chances at completing a traditional hero arc: a character claiming what is rightfully “theirs.” It’s the closest thing this show can have to a happy ending. That’s also the easiest explanation for why we might not get it. But viewers holding out for Dany’s coronation is a reminder that people still want the fairy tale ending the show has worked so hard to subvert. Even after six years of one savage disappointment after another, fans still have hope.

Xiaomi Mi Max is finally receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update. Popular Chinese company Xiaomi released this bezel-less handset in 2016.
 According to Phone Arena, more than a year ago Xiaomi landed its evolutionary handset Xiaomi Mi Max that started the trend of the bezel-less smartphones. The important fact is this Chinese handset was hardly accessible in other countries through the official channels. However, the existing consumers can now avail the Android 7.0 Nougat update from the Chinese company.
The Xiaomi Mi Max is the largest screen smartphone of the Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi. The handset is based on the important global MIUI The new Android 7.0 Nougat update includes a set of essential features. Through this update, consumers can avail an option to hide the notifications' content on the lock screen.
According to Tech Value, the Xiaomi Mi Max performed well in the world market after releasing in May 2016. The handset is equipped with a 6.44-inch touchscreen display and a big 4.850mAh battery. With Snapdragon 650 chipset the smartphone delivers smooth performance.

The models that contain 3GB of RAM can update their handsets with the Android 7.0 Nougat. No word is available on the models that contain 4GB of RAM and 128 GB internal storage. That means the owners of the Prime model have to wait to see the next development regarding the update.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper X390/X399 release date, specs news: Monster CPU
The wait for AMD's (Advanced Micro Devices) most powerful central processing unit (CPU) chips will soon be over. With June coming to a close, techies are getting closer and closer to the AMD Ryzen Threadripper X390/X399 release on July 27.
Personal computers with the 16-core and 12-core versions of the CPU will hit the racks on the said date, according to PC World. Alienware has exclusive rights to the chips but they are expected to be available in most U.S. boutiques.
Prices are still unannounced. Last May 28, MobiPicker shared a screenshot showing the CPU's listing on Skroutz. The listing contained basic specifications but the detailed information which includes the price was marked unavailable.
PC World places it on the same league as Intel's new Core i9 lineup. Intel charges $1,000 for a 10-core chip, $1,700 for a 16-core, and $2,000 for an 18-core. There is a possibility that AMD will charge around the same price but then, they may also stick to their normal pricing. If the latter happens, an aggressive price war will surely ensue as AMD has more affordable prices with their Ryzen 8-core processors being sold only at $300.
PC World claims to be the most reliable source for consumers interested in purchasing the AMD Ryzen Threadripper X390/X399. According to the retail chain, all other reports about the processor's specifications may look legitimate but are only speculations. PC World also highlighted that other sources could not even get the CPU name right.
The only specifications that PC World released are the following. The AMD Ryzen Threadripper X390/X399 will come in two versions — a 16-core option with 32 threads using STM and 64 lanes of PCIe, and a 12-core version with 24 thread using SMT. All versions come with quad-channel memory and made with solder thermal interface material. The processor will be released in X399 platform and their motherboards will not be compatible with AMD's Epyc chips.
Things in the CPU market are going to be interesting as Intel and AMD will play an intense core war. However, consumers should not assume that the more cores, the better the performance of a processor is. PC World recommends that the number of cores you need should depend on what you do on your personal computer. For instance, heavy gamers would obviously need a chip with more cores.

One of the greatest WhatsApp features is file sharing. With a few simple steps, you can share documents with your friends. WhatsApp is finally rolling out a feature that allows sending any file type, including archives and media files. [ads-post] The rollout is limited and slow, but if you’re lucky, you might already be able to share your files.
Send Any File Through WhatsApp
Until now, WhatsApp allowed sharing such files as csv, doc, docx, pdf, ppt, pptx, rtf, txt, xls, xlsx and similar. The list of supported files was very limited and didn’t include any media files. Now, the company is reportedly rolling out the enhanced sharing feature to all its users. While this is great news, please note that the maximum size of the share is 128 MB for iOS, 100 MB for Android and 64 MB for a Web client. Those limits are pretty low, but WhatsApp may (or may not) increase them.
WhatsApp is experimenting with this feature only with some users at the moment. If it works for you, you’re fortunate. Otherwise, you can find similar functionality is available in the open-source alternative Telegram.
Let us know if the feature works for you already. This is a server side update, so you don’t have to download the latest beta. You can obtain WhatsApp from the Google Play Store or by visiting the official website.

India skipper Mithali Raj set a new record by smashing seventh consecutive ODI half-century against England in an ICC Women's World Cup match at County Ground in Derby on Saturday.

India's top three — Smriti Mandhana, Punam Raut and Mithali Raj — all slammed half-centuries each as India posted a huge target of 281/3 in their tournament opener. [ads-post] This was Mithali's seventh consecutive half-century, bettering the likes of Lindsay Reeler (Australia), Ellyse Perry (Australia) and Charlotte Edwards (England), all of whom slammed six back-to-back fifties each in the past.

But Mithali went one better than these stalwarts in her innings of 71 off 73 deliveries, which also included eight glorious boundaries.

These are Mitali's scores in her last seven ODIs, including this match against England — 71 vs England, 62* vs South Africa, 54 vs South Africa, 51* vs South Africa, 73* vs Bangladesh, 64 vs South Africa and 70* vs Sri Lanka.

Also, this is Mithali's 47 ODI fifty, which is also the highest in women's cricket history. Meanwhile, the India skipper is also just 148 runs away from becoming the first women's cricketer ever to slam 6000 ODI runs.
ICC Women's World Cup 2017: Mithali Raj Shatters World Record
Known for her flamboyant batting style, Indian women’s cricket team skipper Mithali Raj has scored heaps of runs in her international career. Mithali who was attending the opening dinner and media roundtable event came up with a perfect reply when a reporter asked about her favourite ‘male’ player.
Raj said, “Do you ask the same question to a male cricketer? Do you ask them who their favourite female cricketer is?” she said to the journalist in question. “I have always been asked who’s your favourite cricketer but you should ask them who their favourite female cricketer is.” Surely, it was not her willow but her words that were spot on.
Hailing BCCI’s effort to promote women’s cricket, the skipper appreciated the improvements made by the board in the last two home series.
“There’s a lot of difference because we are not a regular on television. Now the BCCI has made an effort that the last two home series have been televised and social media has improved a lot of it but there is a still a lot of catch-up to do in terms of recognition,” she said.
Talking about men’s cricket, Mithali said that it sets a certain bar where the women cricketers seek to reach.
“Men’s cricket sets the bar. We are always trying to reach where they set the standard. All of us follow men’s cricket because we want at some point that women’s cricket would be up there,” she said. “All of us at some point have been coached by a male cricketer. I strongly believe that they get a lot of intensity into the training sessions. They are very hard taskmasters.”
Mentioning about the role of coaches, Raj told that there should be someone who is tough task taskmaster so that the girls really put in the intensity in their training sessions.
“I believe that if you are representing your country, your country should get the best of the best. It’s nothing to do with women coaches [who] don’t have the ability, they do. but if you really want to push the team to the highest level, you need to have somebody who is a tough taskmaster so that the girls really put in the intensity in their training sessions and they carry that into the main tournaments.”
India begin the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 quest on June 24 against hosts England.

Rory MacDonald threw a bucket of cold water on Bellator’s welterweight title fight Saturday night, just seconds after it happened. [ads-post] The top 170-pound fighter, who should be in line for a title fight next, slammed the performances of Douglas Lima and Lorenz Larkin at Bellator NYC at Madison Square Garden. Lima ended up winning a unanimous decision against the very tough UFC veteran. But MacDonald wanted to see more.
Rory MacDonaldI was really underwhelmed,” MacDonald said on the broadcast. “I was expecting a good fight. I had a lot of excitement going into this fight. Larkin is an excellent fighter. If these guys think they’re keeping a belt fighting like that against me, it’s not gonna happen. I’m gonna take these guys out. They’re just gonna be another body in the grave.”

After the win, Lima told MacDonald to “come get it” and said that MacDonald has been in tough fights in the past, but won’t know a real tough fight until he steps in the cage with him.
“The Red King” is likely to get that shot against Lima, one of Bellator’s best fighters historically, sometime in the fall. MacDonald, 27, won his Bellator debut against Paul Daley by second-round submission in May. The Canadian owns wins over current UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, as well as Nate Diaz, BJ Penn and Demian Maia.
Speaking to Mike Goldberg and Josh Thomson on the desk, MacDonald explained that he’s done fighting cautiously and wants to let his true ability come out.
“This is the next chapter in my career,” MacDonald said. “I’m not playing games anymore. i’m coming forward, I’m doing my style now. I’m not playing games. I’m not point fighting anymore. I’m there to take you out. I’m hunting you down, and I’m gonna bury you and that’s it.”
MacDonald (19-4) came close to beating Robbie Lawler at UFC 189 in 2015, a fight that many believe is one of the best in UFC history. MacDonald lost his next bout to Stephen Thompson and then departed the UFC as a free agent for Bellator.
Now, he is angling for that promotion’s welterweight title. And he believes it could be around his waist soon if Lima fights the way he did Saturday night.
“That was not up to par, that’s for sure,” MacDonald said.

A fresh leak from Chinese microblogging site Weibo claims the next-gen Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 smartphones will feature two different processor chipsets. [ads-post]
A leaked Samsung internal message suggests the S9 will be powered by a 10nm chipset-based Exynos 9810 processor while the Note 9 will have a 7nm or 8nm chipset fabrication for the same Exynos processor.
With a slimmer die fabrication process, the Note 9 will be a relatively better handset than the S9 with reduced power consumption and better energy efficiency. Samsung was taken by surprise when Qualcomm decided to ditch its partnership and opted for TSMC built 7nm processor SoCs for next-gen Snapdragon processors.
Galaxy Note 9 and S9
Consequently, Samsung has opted out of its collaboration with Qualcomm to keep the 10nm-based chipsets in business and thereby averted potential monetary losses. The company is expected to mass produce either 7nm or 8nm SoCs for the Note 9 alone, instead of dumping the 10nm SoCs.

Earlier this year, Lenovo added its new Tab 4 series to the Tab lineup. Starting today, the Tab 4 8 and the Tab 4 10 is on pre-order in the US for $129.99 and $179.99 respectively.
Lenovo Tab 4 series
Both models share similar specifications except for the screen size. Both pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 2 GB RAM along with 16 GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 256 GB via microSD card. [ads-post] Android 7.1 (Nougat) comes out of the box in both variants. Both feature a 5 MP rear camera and a 2 MP selfie shooter.
The only difference between the Tab 4 8 and Tab 4 10 is that the Tab 4 8 has an 8-inch display while the later has a 10.1-inch screen. Both also have the same resolution of 1280x800 using an IPS panel.
Amazon and Newegg are the first ones to start the pre-order of these tablets. While Amazon will ship the ordered tablet "within 2 to 5 weeks", Newegg will start shipping on June 30. Folks can order any of them from the links given below.

Google Maps is not reliable in India, or at least that is what the Indian government sustains. According to Survey of India, a governmental agency designed to do the mapping and surveying of the countries’ territory, Google Earth and Google Maps are not accurate and have not been authenticated in India. The agency has designed a map for Indian citizens. It is free and approved by the government.
It is widely known that India and Cambodia have protested against Google Maps previously, for not accurately presenting their borders.  Cambodia has also made allegations against Google with respect to their Thai-Cambodian border, which according to them was misleading and not accurate. Apart from the diplomatic issue, the Indian Government considers that these apps could be used to find a restaurant, but not other important buildings.
Do Not Rely On Google Maps If You Are In India
The web mapping service provided by the American corporation Google offers satellite images, panoramic views, analyses traffic conditions on the spot, has a route planning system and a street view option. You can download the Google Maps app on your phone and use it to go by car, by foot or by public transportation.
It is hard to say if Indian citizens will obey the Indian government and use their own created version of maps or they will continue to use Google Maps. According to them, the traffic system in India is very complex and therefore the topographic data need to be constructed with the help of engineers. Also they advertise that the maps made by Survey of India will be cost-free and reliable to all citizens. There are no explanations as to how the app will be updates and how often. The reactions online were not so positive and it seems that not many are thrilled with the Indian government’s requirement.

Oliver’s twist: Melbourne’s Clayton Oliver in Twitter spat with former cricketer Damien Martyn

CLAYTON Oliver appears to be embracing suggestions he took a dive against West Coast on Sunday night.

Not only has the Melbourne midfielder changed his Twitter profile picture to shine a light on the incident, but he has also taken aim at Australian cricket great Damien Martyn.
Oliver copped an elbow to the chin from Eagle Will Schofield during a heated scuffle on Saturday evening and fell to ground, leading to suggestions that he dived.
Post-game, Oliver refused to concede that he acted.
Martyn, who is a West Coast supporter and played 67 Tests and 208 one-day internationals for Australia, lashed out at Oliver via social media, only for the second-year footballer to remind the 2003 World Cup winner of a moment he would rather forget.
Martyn was famously made the scapegoat in a painful five-run defeat to South Africa at the SCG in 1994, when he was the second last man dismissed in Australia’s unsuccessful pursuit of just 117.
In just over 100 minutes of batting, Martyn made six from 58 balls as the Aussies reached 8-75. They were just seven runs away from winning when Donald lulled him into a false shot.
“We’d lost a Test match. I blamed myself. I felt it was my fault, even though I made 50-odd (59) in the first innings and the wicket wasn’t great that final day,” Martyn told News Limited in 2013.
“I batted for ages and was gutsing it out. As a young bloke, I watched all these legends getting out.
“I didn’t bat well for a couple of years so it took me a while to get my passion back. I didn’t think I’d make it back to Test cricket at that point.”
An elegant right-hander who ended up having a distinguished career for Western Australia and Australia, Martyn wafted at an Allan Donald delivery and was caught at cover.
The media heavily criticised the 23-year-old and so did the selectors, leading to a six-year exile from the Test team.
Oliver was still three and-a-half years away from being born when Martyn was dismissed at the SCG on that January afternoon.
