Elon Musk has completed his takeover of Twitter and one of the new changes he's proposed is $8/mo for the Twitter blue tick.

    I think he should have charged more. Twitter's got several spammy accounts verified because you could get your account verified through your internal connects.

    Elon will also ensure that there is a proper account verification policy in place.

When it comes to building a successful business - does age matter? Well, the data shows that it does. The average age of tech entrepreneurs at the time of IPO is about 43.3 years!

TRAI will pull the data from KYC documents submitted while obtaining the phone number / SIM card. This data will be queried every time there's an incoming call and displayed on the phone screen by default.

While it's immensely...

I'm looking for advice and feedback on what should we do next at CrazyEngineers. Few of the questions -

  1. How should QnA work? For example: Should we bring the questions with replies at the top of the main feed?
  2. Should we show members online? Let me know.
  3. What are the topics we should discuss about?

Wondering if Apple will ever release a 32" iMac. I had my hopes high a few months ago when there were rumours that Apple is designing a bigger-screen Mac with M1 processor; but then they launched the Studio. :-/

I've been using 27" iMac for over a decade now and the machine still runs strong. I only upgraded the RAM once, and that's it. It doesn't get MacOS updates anymore, but runs all the programming tools I throw at it.

I'm sure there are several users like me who want...
