Being Smart is a Necessity

“I have wandered around the planet for too long. I have been to every corner of Earth’s human free areas” remarked the Frankenstein monster, finishing the tea in his cup.

“Has that made you a wiser or at least a smarter person? Does that at least leave you with certain vestige of being so?” asked Count Dracula.

“You have always been a man of doubt, Mr. Dracul. I have made it all the way here on this blood moon night with my smart use of magic. My mind is now complete with spells that go back many centuries. I am now full, with sorcery in my mind as well as soul” replied a confident monster, known to many by the name Adam, the first man on Earth.

“Where does magic stand in this age of science and technology? Even for the best trained creatures of the night like us, lack of knowledge of human technology has caused trouble in the past” said Dracula.

“Now, you are saying that you are placing human science and technology here, as a replacement for centuries old magic” wondered Adam.

“Yes, now you see that smart security camera? It has helped us to detect any human presence nearby, helping us to keep ourselves hidden from them – such cameras are placed all around the castle, and it is how we came to know that you were here. We have Smart Camera systems and Smart lights“.

“So, you didn’t use the natural vampire sense or the bats which used to carry your messages?” asked Adam.

“No, there are too many electricity lines and posts around. They get caught all the time, and so we have them working only within the yard. Nice drums, by the way”.

“No, don’t do that. It is not a drum – that thing is a smart wireless bluetooth speaker which is used to play simple and tension- relieving vampire music for our brothers and sisters inside the coffin” explained Dracula.

“I have heard that vampires have grown more health conscious. A little bird told me the same a few days ago in the Carpathians” remarked Adam.

“Yes, see this smart watch? It does almost everything for me. This light-weight version even senses vampire heartbeats. I can do some running and cycling with this – you know that I am a centuries old vampire, a lot older than you, and I have to keep myself healthy. It is a tough job to keep the vampire throne with the young blood around. I also have a smart fitness band in case this stops working”.

“The old age catches up with us all, doesn’t it? At least, you are immortal”.

“Being immortal has been a curse for too long, old friend. It is one advantage that you have, because you don’t really exist according to both science and religion, and therefore anything of this existence bother you less. I believe that you hold the key to the past, present and future. So, at least buy a mobile phone so that we can contact you in case the armageddon begins” remarked Dracula.

“I see that they have changed how the world works for you, but will that change mine?” wondered Adam.

“Yes, you should at least buy a smart watch or a fitness band, for they are the best of the Smart Wearable. Remember that you were created out of the unexpected. So, at least be health conscious. Search for a few of such items at Flipkart, one of the leading online electronic commerce websites”. advised Dracula.

“So be it. Who doesn’t want a  Smart Home? I have wanted a lot, but have managed to have very little” said Adam, as the blood moon spread its colours through the sky.

A Difficult Case of Mobile

Dracula: I just can’t sell this. They are not buying this at the Goblin Market. They are not even replacing it. I tried the wanderers’ tavern and the merchants’ guild, but they are not ready to take it to the other markets.

Vampire Owl: What are you talking about, Uncle Dracula? Did you go to the Goblin Market again? I thought that we were supposed to visit the place only during emergencies.

Dracula: This was a clear case of emergency. I had to get rid of this mobile before she returns home after that inter-realm tournament.

Vampire Bat: You are getting rid of the mobile of Mavis Dracula? You are going to have a really angry vampire daughter if that is the case.

Dracula: I can handle the anger, but not this terrible case of human contact with this terrible invention which is banned in thirteen realms including the Werewolf Lands.

Vampire Owl: The werewolves banned mobile phones in their territory? This is surely news for me.

Dracula: Yes, they have had enough of it. The mobile phone radiation has been interfering with their ability to transform at night.

Vampire Owl: I have read that they are harmful to vampires too. Doctor Frankenstein has confirmed the same on his latest findings marked on the walls of the Imperial Vampire Library.

Vampire Bat: Yes, it affects multiple vampire abilities. The Vampire Elders have warned against it in a notice sent from the Old Vampire World. They will be here to speak more about it on the next blood moon night.

Vampire Owl: Then we should really get rid of this. If it affects my ability to fly, that would be more depressing than an angry werewolf on a full moon night.

Vampire Bat: Can’t you just throw it away? You can even dig a pit and bury it. We can even ask our zombie minions to deal with them inside a graveyard.

Dracula: No! Mavis’ special skills allows her to detect any trace of it. We have to try better. Only a non-vampire can hide it from her detection.

Vampire Owl: Did you talk to many people at the Goblin Market? Did you find all of the master merchants present there?

Dracula: Yes, there was this green goblin who was ready to take it, but would need an elixir of life with it.

Vampire Bat: They would buy it and you will have to pay for the same? That is rather strange for the Goblin Market. They used to be so much better.

Dracula: Yes, and there was another person who would need some time to check the mobile in detail for a few days before buying it. An orc had set a new trading post just outside the market. He said that he doesn’t even believe that this a mobile phone. He further told me that works of magic are more real and better for the future of our realm, for which there will be a new combined order passed by all races banning all electronic equipment.

Vampire Owl: I once tried to sell my mobile at a shop run by these humans. They were so evil that they gave me only twenty percent of the original price, even though the mobile was rather new. The options are really bad even in their realm. There is no real advantage with this portal leading to the human world.

Vampire Bat: Do you know that you can sell your mobile phones within sixty seconds? There is an easy way around with #CleanUpCashOut at Cashify.

Dracula: I can transform into a bat, a wolf and a polar bear in sixty seconds.

Vampire Owl: Polar bear? That is new. I thought the third choice was raven. I remember hearing something like that during one of those special classes.

Vampire Bat: Well, it is not too late to try this quick option. I don’t think that you have that much of time or that many of choices. I am sure that Mavis will be here in less than twenty four hours. Her team of wolves are already waiting at the back of the castle.

You can sell your mobile, tablet or even laptop at https://www.cashify.in/ – you can use the coupon code CLEANCASH for additional cash. The time is for #CleanUpCashOut.

Couponhaat: Deals and Offers

We know how much the strength of online shopping has increased in the last few years. I did my first online shopping by the end of last year, and now I do a lot of online shopping; that was from Flipkart, and it was followed by Snapdeal and Amazon in the later first half of this year. My mobile phone, battery-powered fan, electric kettle, the mobile phones of my parents, my tab, emergency lights, selfie stick, headphones, books, laptop bag and even water jugs and pressure cookers have origins through online shopping, and all these have happened within the period of one year.

Buying products online was not the usual thing to do around here at this part of the world, but things have changed, even though there will be people who will prefer buying things locally. Nowadays, a higher number of people are looking at the online websites first and then the rest. We are always looking for some interesting offers online. But often we miss such offers as we can’t keep searching for them everywhere all the time – we do have other things to do, and these offers just come and go.

I have myself wanted to find those offers at Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon, three of my most visited online shopping websites. I usually end up buying the needed product without offers, and there was the need to change that. It just happened last month with a Swipe phone! I have already bought too many products which had absolutely no offer associated with them, and at times I wondered if buying something from the local stores was better. But I recently came across Couponhaat, one of the fastest growing coupons and deals website in India.

couponhaat

Couponhaat seeks to provide the best coupons and deals for online buyers in India. They choose the best from the popular online shopping sites. It always feels good to have earned some discount here or there, right? We have always loved buying something with discount or some other offer attached to the product. Along with the earlier mentioned websites, Paytm, ShopClues, Jabong, Pepperfy, Foodpanda, HomeShop18, Yepme, Zovi, eBay and many others are also there.

Couponhaat allows you to search through online shopping sites as well as products and the categories associated with them. You can specifically look for the offers from Amazon or Snapdeal or you can check at the categories like Electronics, Fashion and the others along with the subcategories like Books, Tablets, Cameras, Footwear, Laptops and many others. When you choose the option, you will see the best offers along with the name of the online shopping site and you can go there by clicking “Shop Now”.

Through registration at Couponhaat, one can receive e-mail alerts from the favorite stores or categories, at that moment when they become available. It is the easiest way to save some money as long as you are into online shopping. There will be newsletters with the best deals and coupons. There is the easy option to register with Facebook. The subscriptions can be personalized, with newsletters, and also choosing from the most popular stores and categories. It is quite an easy thing to do.

There might be many options in the form of online shopping sites, but to make the best use of it according to our needs, we should be using something like Couponhaat, the website which has 80,000 coupons to redeem and 5200 live coupons and deals. Such an option not only saves one’s money by providing the best available deals but also saves the shopping time which is spent online. Using Couponhaat will make sure that the online shopping experience will get better.

When Movies Come Alive

From 2006 to 2014, you have known where the history comes to life, but it is time that I make clear where the movies come alive. From 4th June 2014, I have been the member of a movie community called Flixpack where I stand more than seven hundred and fifty movie reviews strong, or rather “the movie punches strong” with the exact usage at the site being “punching movies”. I feel that it is a nice usage, because sometimes movies give us a punch or two, and it our right to give a few in return. Life often needs some retribution, right?

Flixpack is an interesting place to post your opinions about movies in the form of “punches”. One thing that you can be sure about here is that the setup is intensely interesting even in its beta mode. There are movies in eight languages as part of an extensive list of movies, which are Malayalam, English, Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada and Marathi. There is also the presence of the popular international movies which have the English dubbed version.

Flixpack Community comes up with a fair and supporting platform for sharing your opinions, unlike a few other places where the savage fans of certain actors wander around like cannibals waiting to pounce on the civilized person. Flixpack is more of a place having people respecting the opinions of others rather than those blind fans who always come up with a stupid comment or abuse whenever you say that a superstar movie is bad, the latest and the biggest addition to that list being Dulquer Salmaan fans.

There is that never-ending saga of dumb fan abuse as they feed on our brains like zombies needing brain noodles, but Flixpack makes sure about a community of mutual respect, and I have been part of it for months. It also makes things easy when you go for a movie. The list of the latest movies are on the right side of the homepage, and the latest trailers of the flicks are right below it. Flixpack makes sure that it is extremely difficult for you to miss a popular movie, and there is a need for this among the movie enthusiasts.

The first thing that you see when you load the Flixpack site are the movies that are trending on the site; those which have been recently reviewed, and you can also select the recently reviewed or commented reviews in detail from right below it. Your favourite like button is also present. There is also a list of the last year’s movies, and suggestions about movies and people to follow on the site along with a number of movies which are free to watch. You can follow people as well as become fan of the celebrities here.

The movie database is very easy to access. You can search for movies, celebrities and users from the search box at the top with ease. When you take a movie, for example, Jupiter Ascending, you can click on the genre “Science Fiction” to see more movies of the same genre, and also on the actor or actress, like Mila Kunis to see more movies in which she has acted in. There is the full cast and crew information as well as movie summary available. You can add the movies to favourites, watchlist, or the watched list and it shows on your profile.

Flixpack is only going through the beta stage, but the progress that has been achieved with the site is nothing less than gargantuan, considering the fact that there is a very long way to go. It has been a prerogative for me to be part of this wonderful initiative for the movie fans, and I believe most of you will like to have a look and spend some time at Flixpack and join the group. We need our movies, and we need to know about them as well as share our own opinions. Do take some time to check the Facebook Page from where the images are taken: https://www.facebook.com/flixpack
