This year has been a roller coaster ride for PlayStation gamers. With titles like Spiderman and God of War disappearing off the shelves in the blink of an eye, 2018 had a lot of action-packed games to offer.

There were about 760 PS4 titles released this year, so it’s obvious that one would be spoilt for choice. To make it easier, we did the hard work of picking out the top PS4 games released in 2018 that you must play.

Before we get on with this story, let me be clear in saying that this is just a compilation of recommended games, not a ‘Top 10’ list. Period.

WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned messaging platform, would recognise 2018 as the year when it saw mixed responses from the world and its users. The platform has been found culprit of spreading hatred and fake news, ably governed under its ambit of encryption and it also entered the payment space in the country.

Having said that, the messaging app, with over 200 million monthly daily active users in India, has been showered with a slew of new features this year that have caught everyone’s fancy for one reason or the other.

Read the story here to look at some of the top features that users warmed up to and made it popular.

Television viewing in India is at its crossroads, with consumption of digital content via the internet on the big screen slowly but surely catching up. And it was hard for the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to ignore the obvious concerns of the consumer, who is now paying for dual medium of content.

Which is why TRAI’s latest change in tariff for TV channels comes as a big relief for people, who virtually end up spending up to Rs 20,000 annually on subscriptions.

The new policy also requires broadcasters like Star and Zee to publish their channel rates and ask cable operators and Direct To Home (DTH) service providers to offer all channels a la carte at a maximum monthly price of Rs 19 each, the report adds.

Reliance Jio first became a household with mobile internet, it is expected to do the same with broadband internet very soon. But it’s fair to say that sky’s the limit for the country’s third-largest telecom operator. After pushing internet into everyone’s life, Jio is now eyeing your four-wheeler, with its version of a Connect app.

Which brings us to the next possible Jio product launching in the coming weeks. We came across this app called Jio Motive on the Google Play Store listed as unreleased.

Having said that, anyone can install the app right away, use it probably as early beta testers and help the company with the feedback for the app. The Jio Motive app, as per the feature list seems like a one-stop solution for car owners.
