Why We Love to Hate Both Apple iPhone SE and Xiaomi Mi 5!

Apple is in a downward spiral when it comes to product innovation. The biggest example of this is the Apple iPhone SE . To start with, Apple said they would be giving an opportunity to tech lovers to buy an affordable smartphone. But they are getting greedier and greedier.

In Pics: Huawei’s New Android Wear Watch, the Moto 360 2015 Rival

Huawei’s Android Wear Watch is now available. You can buy it online here or at Amazon . But here’s the thing, who really buys or needs a smartwatch right now?

On the other hand, you get options like Motorola Moto 360 (2015), and Asus Zenwatch 2 which understands that its consumers aren’t willing to shell out $300 for a wearable right now. So, is the Huawei Watch any different from the rest? We’ll know soon. But for now, check it...

What do Astronauts eat in space

Astronauts are one such group. They study and train hard so they can travel up there in space and try to resolve the questions of life in the universe.
