  • Philips unveils feature phone for senior citizens for Rs 3,800

    Philips Mobile Monday launched a new feature phone for senior citizens featuring a large font size, long battery life and SOS function, priced at Rs 3,800.

    Senior citizens are often inconvenienced by the standard phones available in the market due to their small font size, short battery life and fragility, Philips said in a statement.

      According to Pew Research Internet Group, elderly citizens face several difficulties while adopting new technologies.

    Two in five elderly citizens indicated that they have a "physical or health condition that makes reading difficult or challenging" or a "disability, handicap, or chronic disease that prevents them from fully participating in many common daily activities", it added.
            
    The phone makes use of large font sizes on a 2.4-inch screen to enable easy reading and the keypad also makes use of larger keys for comfortable viewing.

    It comes with a 1630mAh Li-ion battery capacity and Xenium power saving technology that offers users up to 1,128 hours standby time and up to 24 hours talking time.

    The handset also comes with SOS function that allows users to set three 'emergency' or SOS numbers.

    In case of an emergency, users can press the SOS button hidden under the flashlight to dial out the pre-set SOS numbers. The phone will automatically connect to these numbers until the call gets answered by any one of the parties. It also has a flashlight that can be used even when the phone power is switched off.

    "With changing lifestyles in metros in India and increasing incident of elderly abuse, senior citizens areoften left to support themselves by choice or otherwise. We specially designed this phone to make technology more accessible to and user-friendly for the elderly with minimum intervention from others," Sangfei Mobility Country Manager SAARC S S Bassi said.         

    Sang Fei is a subsidiary of China Electronics Corporation (CEC) that owns the exclusive global licence to market and sell mobile phones under the 'Philips' brand.

    Sophie Simmons Big Wet Nipples Steal The Underwater Photo Show

    Well, this is different. If you can put aside what some might consider a desecration of the Stars and Stripes, this Aleks Kocev H2o shoot of Sophie Simmons, first daughter of Gene and Shannon, is rather unique and alluring and most definitely, big ole nipple inspiring. Sophie definitely has some headlights that love to come out and play slippery when wet. We don't see a lot of Sophie outside of her reality TV appearances. Kind of a shame. She seems like she has some talent in the teasy photo...

    Nicole Scherzinger Poses All Kinds of Slinky Hot

    You could do worse than having Nicole Scherzinger model your slinky dresses. You could do worse than having her private modeling the Emperor's New Clothes in your bedroom late one Saturday evening. On the off chance that latter moment doesn't come to fruition, settle into this Misguided Collection for Fall 2014 with Nicole showing how hot their clothes can look on one super sextastic woman with an absolutely perfect body. Misguided indeed.
    Nicole Scherzinger can't possibly qualify as underrated, but let's just say she doesn't get all the attention she deserves for being a world class especially amazing looking woman. I would give her such attention if I ran this world. I'd even document such attention on cell phone video and upload it to my iCloud account with the password 'BillGetsLucky'.  Just saying, in case the hackers are reading. No reason you can't release those tapes

    Celebrities are joining hands to hold fundraiser events in aid of Hudhud cyclone and Kashmir flood victims

     A month after Kashmir was hit by the worst flood of the last century; the film industry is joining hands to extend support to the victims of the calamity. ‘Hum Hain… Ummeed-E-Kashmir’ a concert that will be held simultaneously across seven cities will see artistes from the film and television industries come together to raise funds for the flood victims. Scheduled to be held on Saturday evening, the Hyderabad chapter of the event will have performances by Sonakshi Sinha, Shriya Saran, Sivamani, Leslie Lewis, Madhushalini, Deeksha Seth and Anuj Gurwara among others.

    Touted to be the biggest ever charity show the concert will be held simultaneously across Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata and Jaipur. With the participating artistes waiving off their fees, all the proceeds from the shows will go towards helping the victims of the devastating floods. “That’s the way it should be,” says percussionist Sivamani, who will perform with his band at the concert in the city. Incidentally, the artiste plans to launch his new band at the event and promises an act full of entertainment and rock for the audience. “I feel strongly about extending help to those who need it. In fact, I usually spend most special occasions like Birthdays and festivals with these children at an orphanage in Bandra. We spend the day having fun and I play for them. So when I got a call about performing to raise funds for the flood victims I thought why not. What could be better than us being able to make a difference? I’m hoping to see good participation from the audience too towards the cause,” he says.
    Music composer and singer Leslie Lewis too is eager to lend his support. Incidentally, he cancelled a prior commitment to be able to do his bit for the flood victims. “All of us feel bad when such things happen, but how many of us actually get out of our comfort zones and actually do something about the situation? When I was approached for the concert it was a matter of what was more important to me and if I could really set aside something for a good cause. It’s about going beyond the borders we set for ourselves,” he says, adding that he plans to perform his rock version of the National Anthem at the concert. “I last played it at the F1 in Delhi and it received a great response. I know people might be sceptical about having a rock version of the National Anthem, but rock is really an expression of emotion and not noise. I also plan to play my version of Naam Gum Jayega. It will be my tribute to Kashmir and R.D. Burman with elements of Hip Hop and Rap without straying from the original number.”

    The film fraternity strongly feels that they can use their profession to convince people to generously donate towards the cause and Hum Hain is an attempt to do just that. “ We as a nation have always stood united when it comes to helping others in times of need. I strongly feel that it is my duty as a responsible citizen to help the flood victims in whatever way I can. Fortunately, I am in a profession where I can urge people to donate money or do whatever they can to raise funds for the cause,” says actor Sonakshi Sinha, who will dance to some popular numbers including her hit songs like Saree Ke fall Sa and Gandi Baat.

    Shriya Saran on the other hand plans to do a classical number along with her college friend and danseuse Yamini Reddy. “It’s a worthy cause and I want to do whatever I possibly can to help those affected by the floods. I’ve trained in Kathak and we plan to put up a fusion act for Hum Hain… There will be elements of Kathak and Kuchipudi as well,” she says.

    The Kardashians: Kim has designer wardrobe for North West

    Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly been sent over 200 pieces of designer clothing for North West, that they have yet to dress her in.


    The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' beauty has reportedly been sent hundreds of pieces of designer clothing that she has yet to dress daughter in.

    According to US Weekly, a source revealed that North's wardrobe includes clothes from Oscar de la Renta, Alexander Wang and Roberto Cavalli.


    The insider said: "Kim and Kanye are grateful when designers send them some pieces.

    "North loves clothes and getting ready to go out. It's a lot of fun."
    The source then added that the 16-month-old even has a pair of half-carat Lorraine Schwartz earrings which are worth "well over $50,000".

    They also revealed that Kim has stocked up on baby equipment and has several expensive strollers located around the world.


    The source explained: "She has one in Paris and New York, and she keeps one at her sisters' houses.

    "All of North's stuff is always waiting at the location they're travelling to.

    "They use a local caterer to bring in food for North while she is in Paris. Kim likes Nori's food to be all organic."

    Sorry, You're Still Stuck With Cable For Now

    There was much celebration earlier this week when HBO said you would soon be able to access the network's programming without having to pay for a TV subscription. One day later, CBS announced a $6 monthly service that will stream most of its live programming, as well as past and current shows, over the Internet.

    Analysts have called this the beginning of the great unbundling -- the dawning of an age where we'll be able to pick programming a la carte and choose what we want to watch, rather than having to pay each month for hundreds of channels we don't.

    It's "the first crack in the dike," Michael Davies, a co-founder and senior partner at Endeavour Partners, a firm that consults for broadband, media and content companies, told The Huffington Post after HBO's announcement Wednesday. "If HBO will go, then pretty much everybody else will go in due time."

    But it will probably be a while yet before people cut the cord en masse so they can hand-pick from the growing number of Internet-delivered offerings. The cable bundle is still tightly bound, and it's far from coming apart completely. Live sports programming, for one thing, remains a huge draw. CBS's new service, which for now is only available in 14 cities, won't offer Thursday and Sunday NFL games.

    And depending on what you subscribe to, an unbundled world could wind up being pretty pricey. HBO hasn't announced how much its new service will cost, but The Information, a technology news site, has reported it'll be around $15 a month. Some observers have pointed out that once you add up your Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO and CBS subscriptions, plus whatever additional networks come to offer standalone services (ESPN on its own could cost as much as $30 a month, according to one analysis), you could be paying more per month than it would cost to get a premium cable subscription.

    Bloomberg's Lucas Shaw, citing data from Hudson Square Research, reports that it would cost over $100 a month to subscribe to Netflix, Hulu, HBO, CBS, the Tour de France, WWE wrestling and three of the four major pro sports leagues. And that's on top of what you're already paying for Internet.

    "If you want all the sports, you should just get cable TV," Daniel Ernst, an analyst at Hudson Square Research, told Bloomberg.

    But at least you'd have the ability to choose another way to get programming -- and choice is not something consumers have had a lot of when it comes to TV subscriptions. Cable bills have jumped a whopping 97 percent over the last 14 years, and that doesn't include fees, taxes or promotions, according to SNL Kagan, a media researcher.

    Pregnant Blake Lively Holds Her Belly In Latest Preserve Photo

    Blake Lively sure has something to smile about.

    The 27-year-old actress is pregnant with her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds. She made the big announcement on her lifestyle website, Preserve, on Oct. 6.

    On Friday, she shared another pregnancy photo on the site. In the shot, the blond beauty wears a Sam and Lavi floral blouse and printed skirt. She smiles, looking at the camera, with her two hands placed on her belly.
    The photo appears on Lively's site within a post titled "Bringing Up Baby."

    "With a new baby on the way there is so much to do!" the post reads. "But before experiencing the joy of 3am screams, seemingly impossible amounts of poop and having a favorite shirt covered in reflux… there are presents to open, onesies to dye, there is cake to serve, advice to be shared and all around celebration to be had."

    The post includes pictures from a fall celebration the actress had with other pregnant women.

    Jennifer Lopez's Abs Game Is Next Level

    Jennifer Lopez's abs made an appearance Wednesday in West Hollywood, California. The singer was spotted pulling a tank top over her purple sports bra and black leggings outside the gym. Later that evening, she was photographed heading to dinner in a white midriff-baring ensemble.
    In May, Lopez revealed she tried the 22-day vegan diet that Beyonce and Jay Z completed last year.

    "I did the vegan 22-day plan and it was really good, and I kept on with it for a few more weeks and now I've incorporated a little bit of fish here and there," she told Ryan Seacrest. "But I've got to tell you, I enjoy it. I enjoy eating that way. I never did and I didn't know how good you can feel when you put healthy stuff in your body. I was so used to just eating the way I grew up."

    James Franco And Seth Rogen Are Naked, Just Chillin' In The Wilderness

    James Franco and Seth Rogen's latest ridiculous stunt involves hanging out naked in the wilderness together and, of course, documenting their nude adventures on Instagram. Franco shared two photos of himself with Rogen on his Instagram account Friday and another on Saturday. While Franco references "Naked And Afraid" in his caption we can't say for sure if these two are officially filming an episode for the reality show. Let's face it: It's totally believable that this is simply Franco and Rogen's idea of a good time.
