OMG! See how Donald Trump’s hair changed post election loss – Times of India

He just suffered a historical loss from the hands of Joe Biden, who is all set to become the next President of United States of America, and Donald Trump seems to have taken it to heart.

Earlier, a report publish in the New York Times even suggested that Trump spent USD 70,000 charge on personal hairstyling “for television” as business expense in 2016, allegedly during his The Apprentice days. .@POTUS: "Ideally we won't go...

New wireless charging tech may make stylus pens more popular in smartphones – Times of India

To enable this technology, theNFC Forum and the Universal Stylus Initiative (USI) announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding that points out a col...
