The soul purpose of enjoin is to connect the audience with each other through a single platform, so as they benefit each other with their respective insights, opinions, observations and suggestions.

 

Though enjoin does pose a lucrative offer, it plans to filter out the organizations with below-par standards.

Hilarious Cellphone Myths

Jaziha Syed

The internet is responsible for an insidious thing that no one could have foreseen: massive misinformation. There have been some amazing advances in cell phone technology and things that we thought would be impossible to do with a cell are now possible, but many silly myths persist that ought not to. In no particular order, let’s get into the myths and whether or not they’re true.

 

Using Off-Brand Chargers

This rumor was most likely started by cellphone companies looking to cash in on accessories and who can blame them?

That said, sometimes they have your wallet in mind and not your best interests.

We get into this, let’s just say, “yes, you shouldn’t use sketchy, unbranded products off the street, but if the product comes from an accredited and trustworthy brand then you don’t

need to worry about your battery getting destroyed.

You can dry a wet phone in a bag of rice

rice does absorb moisture, it only works if the grains can actually touch the water, which they obviously can’t when it’s inside your sealed phone.
What’s more, the powdery starch that comes off the rice can work its way through the cracks and may end up /increasing/ the corrosion instead.

More megapixels means a better camera

The amount of megapixels a camera has actually only relates to how big a photo you can take with it.

Freezer Extends Its Battery Life

Putting your cell phone battery in the freezer is more harmful to your cell phone than exposing it to extreme heat! Avoid doing this at all costs if you want to be able to use your phone for its maximum lifespan.

 

 Charging Your Phone Overnight Will Make The Battery Explode!

This one does have some basis in the truth, but it’s still false because it’s outdated.

Older lithium-ion batteries were more unstable than their modern cousins and could (rarely) explode if left charging for too long.

Sadly, these sorts of rumors still persist and cause many users to tentatively charge their phones overnight.

 Using Your Cellphone while It’s Charging Will Destroy The Battery

This one is a little bizarre but it makes sense.

The idea is that by using your cell phone you’re killing its ability to charge.

At some level, this may be truth.

If you were to try and play an advanced video game on your phone while it was charging you might create a situation where you’re draining more than you’re putting in, but sending

simple texts and using low energy-consumption apps probably won’t inhibit your ability to charge all that much.

 Improve Your Battery Life

Sure, turning off your games will definitely improve your battery life, but wifi, Bluetooth, and other features don’t put much strain on your cellphone’s battery.

 Charging Your Phone In The Microwave

This one is pretty ridiculous and it’s unbelievable that people would even try to do this.

This one is patently false and it’s only something you should do if you want a roasted and possibly explosive phone.

Your WhatsApp buddies might be spying on you!

Jaziha Syed

If you rely on WhatsApp to message friends and family, it’s important to know that the service lets your contacts know when you’re available to chat, and whether you’ve read their texts.

 Chatwatch, a new iOS app that uses WhatsApp’s public online/offline status feature to tell users how often their friends check the app and estimate when they go to bed each day.

It can even correlate data on two contacts you choose to guess if they’ve been talking to each other.

The company says there’s not a whole lot you can do about it: even if you’ve disabled the ‘Last Seen’ feature in your account settings.

It’ll still be able to figure out your WhatsApp activity.

It’s possible to find out if a WhatsApp user is online or not simply by initiating a conversation with them (no messages need to be exchanged for this to work).

So it’s possible that Chatwatch’s system is automating this process of checking on users and aggregating data to deliver insights.

Naturally, it’d be great to see WhatsApp disable this functionality so we can maintain at least a semblance of privacy in our lives.

Buying Galaxy S9 or S9+… WAIT!

Syed Zohaib Ahmed

The Samsung Galaxy S9 is now on sale, a phone that promises to be one of the best of 2018 – but at first glance, might not seem to be that much of an upgrade.

 

That’s because it’s very, very similar in design to the Galaxy S8 that debuted this time last year – Samsung might as well have called this the Galaxy S8S, if that wouldn’t have been too obvious (and unwieldy as a name).

 

 

Here are the top 5 reasons not to buy S9 or S9+ in Pakistan:

 

1. Not much of a upgrade from last year

 

As we said earlier, it should be called S8s (if Apple does not file another suit for this). The only viable change is the camera for which the reviews aren’t as great anyway even with the Variable Aperture. The end user doesn’t gain from it from the upgrade. Apart from that, position of finger print has been changed for the people who were really specific about the positioning.

 

2. Too expensive

 

It’s price highly at PKR93,499 for Galaxy S9 and PKR103,499 for Galaxy S9+ which is not worth your money if you already have an Galaxy S8 or S8+. Unless, tum ameer baap ki aulaad ho.

 

3. Prices tend to drop after three months

 

As with all Samsung phones, the prices tend to drop by huge margins in the first few months. The high price is because of hype and market demand, let the dust settle so that you don’t regret being one of the first to buy when you see the price drop.

 

4. No insurance anymore!

 

As with your previous samsung phones, the insurance for phone replacement is no longer offered in case of break. Therefore, you will have to be extra careful with those sweet infinity displays now!

 

5. No resale!

 

Samsung phones don’t have good resale value after 6 months as iPhones because of so many launches, they will launch Note 9 by fall season so your phone will already be yesterday’s news in a span of 6 months. Keep that in mind while investing 90k + in your new phone!

 

All in all, we suggest you skip this upgrade and wait for the Note 9 later this year to see some upgrade that is worth spending your money on.

Things I Wish Someone Would Invent

Jaziha Syed

Sometimes I have these times in my life where I’m like GOD I WISH THIS THING EXISTED TO MAKE MY LIFE EASIER OR BETTER. Sometimes I find out that it’s like, in fact, a THING made by those As Seen On TV people and sometimes it just stays a great idea in my head because an inventor I am not.

There are quite a few things over the course of my reading life that I wished existed so if anyone wants to put their inventor hat on or like find a magical way to do these things I will be your first customer.

These slippers that practically kill the roaches for you!

This stick of butter that just rolls onto your toast, meat, hell—even your lips.

A slide staircase, so you don’t ever have to use the stairs again.

The easiest way to wipe your nose, and ass.

This foot opener, so you’ll never have to touch a bathroom door handle again.

The sleep helmet that keeps your head suctioned to the window.


 

5 Women with innovative businesses in Pakistan

Kainat Hussain Khanzada

In no particular order, here are five women who are building innovative companies in Pakistan.

1. Madeeha Hassan

Madeeha is co-founder of Savaree, a ride-sharing and taxi app start-up that was borne out of a civic hackathon. At the time Madeeha was employed as a graphic designer, but quit her job to work full-time on the idea.

Savaree has had its ups and downs, but it’s solving a glaring problem – traffic in Pakistan is notoriously bad, and public transport lags behind. Savaree has been through various stages of incubation and acceleration. As mainstream Pakistani consumers warm up to the idea of transacting online, it seems poised to take off.

2. Sidra Qasim

Sidra is co-founder of Markhor, the first Pakistani start-up to be accepted into Y Combinator. Markhor, which makes luxury handcrafted shoes, burst on to the scene when it flew past its Kickstarter funding target by US$92,000, attracting backers from 32 different countries.

The start-up’s value proposition lies in its ethical commitment to empower the craftsmen it employs – wages are much higher than existing market rates and they’re treated as part of the team. Still a long way to go for the company, but all signs paint a positive picture.

3. Arusha Imtiaz

Arusha is the co-founder of MySmacEd, a communication platform which enables real-time sharing between parents, teachers, students, and administrators. The edtech start-up raised seed funding earlier this year, valuing the company at US$2 million.

Arusha says they work on a freemium model – and have already expanded into the Middle Eastern market, where they have a few schools running a pilot program.

4. Sahr Said

Sahr is the founder and CEO of BeautyHooked, a marketplace for beauty services and professionals. The potential in this space is huge – the market is highly fragmented and ripe for disruption. Women in Pakistan are no different from others across the world – they like to take care of themselves.

Sahr, a former banker and Cornell business school graduate, plans to eventually move away from the marketplace model and also introduce a white-label ecommerce platform, selling beauty and fashion products.

5. Kalsoom Lakhani,

Kalsoom , the founder and CEO of Invest2Innovate – a social venture that provides support to seed-stage social enterprises and provides them access to capital in new markets.She received her bachelor’s from University of Virginia, and master’s degree from George Washington University. Apart from being a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers, the George Washington alumnus is also a co-ambassador for Sandbox, a global network of innovators under 30

Future money – Bitcoin?

1920 1080 Aysha Binte Amin

Crypto currency that has taken the world by storm, I’m sure majority of us have heard of it. That is because of the gigantic rise in its value. But there is more to Bitcoin than just a crypto currency that is on the price rise. Read below for all the basic information you need to know about Bitcoin.

 

Satoshi Nakamoto (a person or a group) made this decentralized cash system in 2009. Bitcoin is an online currency with no tangible bills or coins, and no authority that has control over it, be it government or bank. As per a normal cash transaction, we use our names, IDs, etc. However, when dealing in Bitcoins, transactions are done through encryption keys. Bitcoins are supposed to be “mined” by powerful computers through internet with complexed mathematical equations and many miners working. Just like many engineers working on creating on complex device.

 

The Bitcoin prices are simply determined by its demand and supply, or to put it simply, the prices are determined by how much the people are willing to pay for it. Works very much like company’s stocks! If you wish to purchase Bitcoins,digital currency exchanges like Coinmama, CEX, Kraken and Coinbase, the largest and most established of them, can help you buy, sell and store Bitcoins. You can use your Paypal account or your bank account to make a deposit into a virtual wallet. Once your account is funded, which usually takes a few days, you can then exchange traditional currency for Bitcoin. You can later use that currency to buy things from over 100,000 sellers, you can keep them just like stocks to see if prices rise or fall later, or you could just sell them.

 

Are Bitcoins legal? Yes! As long as you don’t do illegal activities with them just like any normal currency.
