Tape has made its way online of what was allegedly used as a focus group tester, with approximately 80 seconds showing off an remarkable exploration of the Wizarding World. In past there have been a numbers of Harry Potter games over the years, however this game looks like the kind of epic RPG that such a rich legends and rabid fan base deserves.
The game is reportedly a third-person, open-world RPG which centres around a character who has earned a late acceptance into the famous Hogwarts school. You play as a new fifth-year student, with strange events materialising at the school soon after your arrival; together with Professor Elezar Fig, you must set off on a journey through familiar Harry Potter locations – as well as some new, never-before-seen areas – to discover the mysteries behind these events.
It’s unclear right now whether the title is actually in development. For their part, VapeThisBro claims they stumbled upon it as part of a “focus group.” There were, however, rumblings last year that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s subsidiary Avalanche Studios had been assigned a Harry Potter role-playing game project based on job listings. There’s been no word since then on the proposed title.
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is not planning to continue the story of her first hero — at least not right now. She’s already happy with the story she told, as she recently indicated to Variety. In spite of the success of her play, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” a follow-up to her beloved book series, Rowling says she is “probably not” going to write another. Although her answer was specifically in regard to a stage sequel, her comments seem to apply to books, as well.
Social online-to-offline (SO2O) eCommerce is a business strategy designed to bring online social platform users to brick and mortar local shops as well as create a seamless digital experience before, during, and after. If a shop which is 1 km from your home, put a dress on social media and your 10 friends like it and 2 bought it, “Will you doubt the seller, quality, price or product?” – The trust is biggest strength of Social online-to-offline (SO2O) eCommerce. And most importantly you can walk 1 Km and return it if you dislike it.
Usually one buys something in case of need or in case you like it. Second case of ‘like” is common practice on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest & other social media. As in July 2014, Facebook announced a “New Way for People to Discover and Buy Products on Facebook” with the introduction of their first “Buy” call-to-action button.
As with Facebook, Twitter’s “Buy” button enables advertisers to share specific products in promoted posts and allows users to make purchases by simply clicking. With payment information and address details stored on Twitter, they never even have to leave their feed.
If there’s ever a place to go wild with envy, it’s Pinterest. After seeing just how powerful the platform was in influencing purchases—it drives more traffic to websites than any other social network besides Facebook—it hopped into the native selling circle with Buyable Pins.
When customers buy from offline businesses, they usually don’t need to worry about being scammed, and they have a really good opportunity to thoroughly inspect merchandise before paying for it. In the world of offline business, you don’t normally have to worry about losing sales because customers don’t trust you, and you don’t normally have to do anything to convince them they should trust you.
The things customers are concerned about eCommerce are mainly:
They can’t normally see and inspect physical merchandise before purchasing
They can’t be sure that your business really exists
They can’t be certain that their transaction will be processed accurately
They can’t be certain that you won’t charge additional items to them
They don’t know if you will honor a money back guarantee
They can’t be totally sure that what you are offering will suit their needs
What makes Social online-to-offline (SO2O) eCommerce uniquely appealing is that it benefits all parties involved, effectively boosting sales for partners and maintaining revenue for the social platform, all while keeping the customer happy.

Not in global but in Indian context, Amazon can face tough time after Flipcart Walmart deal recently. Globally what can be the next big thing? What if social media is mixed with eCommerce such as Facebook + Amazon? What if Android starts own e-commerce? An online banking app Paytm is most successful eCommerce in India so Banking + eCommerce is also in race. Social media only have personal detail but banks have financial details which is more relevant for eCommerce purchase & advertisement targeting.
Besides crude demographics and geographies, the most logical hooks for ads are Facebook users’ expressed preferences — the books, music, and movies they’re increasingly listing on their profiles. And who has the best data on what consumers will buy? Why, Amazon.com, of course. The logic of a combination — a mixing of the two platforms with huge databases of consumer preferences is, at least on the surface, compelling.
This integrated platform will also help you figure out what kinds of gifts your friends might like by letting you better search for your Facebook friends’ Amazon Wish Lists and by pulling in information from your friends’ profiles. Of course, it will remind you of Facebook friends’ birthdays, too. It will show you interests you have in common with your friends, and it will show you which items are popular with all the people in your social graph.
Mixing Netflix and Facebook? Netflix doesn’t sell anything other than access to video, but the real value to video is using it to draw a crowd, then monetize them in other ways. Facebook has a lot more dedicated users than Netflix has subscribers, and could easily convert a bunch of them into paying video customers. Netflix has to fight tooth and nail to garner its new members. A Facebook/Netflix combo could serve as a very potent distraction, keeping shoppers’ minds off of Amazon altogether.
Android probably understands you more than you understand yourself. But the real catch is in the way Android interprets all these personal data and pieces information together in order to make it irresistible for its advertising customers. Android is poised to make the best out of your data. It’s a virtuous cycle where Google understands what data it needs, how to better interpret it, how to better collect it and what else to collect. Android ecommerce might debut in India around Diwali 2018. Google seems to have backed out of investing in Flipkart after seeing Walmart shareholders get jittery post its $16 billion deal to acquire 77 percent of Flipkart. The report further notes that Google’s Tez payments platform was “launched with the idea of populating the seller database”. Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Industries and Facebook are also reportedly planning to diversify their offerings in India’s $200 bn worth ecommerce market.
Sui means Needle & Dhaga means yarn , it’s good movie for fashion designers. Indian cricket team caption wrote, ” Saw @SuiDhaagaFilm for the second time last night and I loved it more than the first time. What an emotional rollercoaster with brilliant performances by the entire cast.” ” Mauji was superb @Varun_dvn. But Mamta’s character stole my heart totally. Her ability to be so quiet yet so powerful and impactful makes you fall in love with her. SO PROUD my love @AnushkaSharma . Don’t miss it guys! #SuiDhaagaMadeInIndia.”
Sui Dhaaga falls well short of perfection, but it never comes unstuck. It passes muster as a wholesome entertainer embellished with humour, warmth, authentic emotional trappings and actors adept at going seamlessly along with the flow. Sui Dhaaga is a well-meaning, simply woven, feel-good entertainer that delivers as much as it promises. Despite its minor flaws the movie is an engaging watch. All in all, Sui Dhaaga is a funny, entertaining movie that will tell you in all earnestness that even if not everything is badhiya, there are things that are always worth fighting for, be it a sewing machine or one’s dreams.
Mauji (Varun) works at a shop selling sewing machines and is often belittled by the owner’s son, who asks him to enact a puppy’s act, as part of his job. When the son asks him to do the same at his wedding, Mamta and her in-laws are embarrassed to see their son behaving like a dog.
The constantly complaining elderly father (Yadav) retiring from a no-account job, the always delivering homilies homely mother, the elder brother with a shrewish wife, will first put up resistance to the younger son and daughter-in-law’s plan to better their collective future, and after several easy conflicts, will become cheerleaders for Team Sui Dhaaga.
It’s tough to imagine that a stitching test—the race to sew a pillow cover to eventually win a sewing machine—could send your pulse racing but it does happen in Sui Dhaaga.
Mamta might have spent most of her life serving her husband and in-laws, but she is the brain in this enterprise. Without actually instructing Mauji directly, she gives him broad hints, nudging him in a direction, and then willingly takes her place on the backseat of the cycle.
Without question, the film’s finest performance comes from Yamini Das, as Dhawan’s mother. She is a mother who runs her house on autopilot, and can’t let go of instructions or kitchen utensils even when she’s collapsed from a heart attack.
Much before release some meme of the movie actress become huge hit in India, Please share & enjoy.

Daniel Ricciardo ranked 5th in the Spanish Grand Prix, recuperating from a mid-race spin in a race he labelled “pretty boring”.

Lewis Hamilton won in a commanding Mercedes one-two on Sunday to stretch his Formula One lead over Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who finished fourth, to 17 points.
Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes back in business but has F1 2018 turned? Mercedes’ return to form in Spain leaves Ferrari with problems to solve – but Red Bull could be the favourites for Monaco.
