New Delhi: Taiwan-based computer firm MSI expects 10-15 percent share in Indian gaming laptop market by the next year-end, a company official said on Thursday.

“Based on our discussion with distributors and partners, Indian gaming laptop sales are estimated to be around 10,000 per month. We expected to capture 10-15 per cent share in this market,” Micro-Star International Manager Frank Hsu said on the sidelines of an event that saw launch of three laptops.

The gaming laptops are in the range of about Rs 1.5-3.25 lakh per unit.

The high-end model has 18.4 inch full high definition screen, Windows 10 operating system, 1 terabyte hard disk and Intel’s Kaby lake i7 processor with base processing speed of 2.9 Ghz that can go up to 3.9 Ghz in turbo mode.

It comes with Nvidia virtual reality ready GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card that has processing speed of 1733 Mhz and can be enhanced by 40 per cent.

Hsu said the MSI product range starts from Rs 60,000 onwards, but products that can match gamers’ comfort start from Rs 1 lakh onwards.

Asked about the strategy to sell laptops that are priced high, Hsu said MSI will initially focus on metros for business and next year expand business to tier 2 cities.

“We are increasing our headcount in India to support customers. By the end of this year, we will start providing after-sales support in 30-40 cities. We will have collection point in these cities so that we can bring laptop to our service centre and send it back in case any problem occurs,” Hsu said.

He added the company has started selling MSI gaming laptops on Flipkart and is in discussion with other online partners as well as Croma.

“We are in discussion with our partners to pick up laptops from the customer’s premises in case they face any problem and deliver it back after fixing it,” Hsu said.

The company has set up three experience zones in the country and is planning to expand in metros by the end of this year.

EPL Preview: Tottenham seek to make most of Chelsea’s woes

Spurs, who finished runners-up to Antonio Conte`s champions, were unbeaten at White Hart Lane last season but managed just one win from five outings at Wembley, where they played in the Champions League group stage and lost in the FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea 4-2.

tottenham-reuters

Manchester: Tottenham Hotspur begin life at Wembley Stadium on Sunday when they take on Chelsea, hoping to quickly quash talk of discomfort at their temporary home by taking advantage of their rivals` current problems.

Spurs, who finished runners-up to Antonio Conte`s champions, were unbeaten at White Hart Lane last season but managed just one win from five outings at Wembley, where they played in the Champions League group stage and lost in the FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea 4-2.

The North London club are building a new stadium next door to their old venue at White Hart Lane and will play all their home games at Wembley this campaign.

Since the new Wembley was opened in 2007, Spurs have won only twice in 10 games there.

While Chelsea looked a tough opener when the fixtures were announced, there is little of the swagger of champions about Chelsea at the moment.

Conte`s side lost their opening Premier League home game 3-2 to Burnley and will be without skipper and key defender Gary Cahill and Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who are suspended after earning red cards against in that defeat.

With winger Eden Hazard and forward Pedro still sidelined with injury, Chelsea will hope that new arrival Alvaro Morata can rise to the occasion after impressing during his substitute appearance on Saturday.

Chelsea have dominated the headlines this week with reports of a rift between Conte and the club`s hierachy over transfer targets, and with their striker Diego Costa firing critical comments from his exile in Brazil.

The decision to sell midfielder Nemanja Matic to Manchester United has also been questioned, particularly given the Serb`s impressive debut for Manchester United last week.

Tottenham brushed off talk of their own problems over transfers and wage demands with a 2-0 win at Newcastle on Sunday, and apart from right-back Kieran Trippier they should be at full strength.

Tripper is expected to be replaced again by Kyle Walker-Peters, who impressed at St. James` Park.

Chelsea have an excellent record against Spurs in recent meetings, having lost just twice in the past 17 games in all competitions, though one of those defeats came in the last meeting at White Hart Lane in January.

After losing U-19 hosting rights, BCCI seeks govt nod involving Pakistan in 2018 Asia Cup

Last week, PCB registered a moral victory over their arch-rivals after forcing the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) to move the U-19 Asia Cup out of Bengaluru to Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.

New Delhi: Days after losing the rights to host U-19 Asia Cup after objection from Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has reportedly written to seek government’s clearance to host the 2018 Asia Cup.

“We had written to the government for the U-19 Asia Cup three months ago and we did not get a response. So the event had to be shifted to Malaysia. Now for the senior event, we will again write to the government as there cannot be an Asia Cup without an India or Pakistan,” a BCCI official, who did not wish to be quoted, told PTI.

Last week, PCB registered a moral victory over their arch-rivals after forcing the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) to move the U-19 Asia Cup out of Bengaluru to Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.

Pakistan had objected to India hosting the tournament, citing political tensions between the two countries. The decision to shift the venue was taken during ACC’s development committee meeting held in Colombo.

“The India-Pakistan clash in the Asia Cup is the marquee clash. If that doesn’t happen, the tournament is meaningless. And let me make it clear, it is not about playing Pakistan in a bilateral event, it is a multi-team event like any ICC event,” the official added.

Despite the prevailing tensions between the two countries, India and Pakistan have been playing each other in world events and recently faced each other twice in the Champions Trophy in England.

The women’s team, which reached the final of the women’s World Cup, too played against Pakistan in the round robin stage of the tournament.

“Like any ICC event, Asia Cup also involves other teams and an India-Pakistan clash is unavoidable,” said the official.

The source also revealed that the Asia Cup, which was earlier planned for June, will now be played in the second half of the year due to rain factor.

“The rain could be a factor in June, therefore it was agreed to shift the tournament to September or October. The the final dates will be announced soon.”

In the last edition, India defeated hosts Bangladesh in Dhaka to win the tournament. Asia Cup is a format-wise rotational tournament between One-Day International and Twenty20 International, on the basis of upcoming world events.

This is why eating untimely affects your skin!

The findings indicates that people who eat late at night are more vulnerable to sunburn and longer-term effects such as skin ageing and skin cancer.

skin

New York: Do you often indulge in midnight snack? If yes, then you are harming your skin. Researchers have said that eating untimely might disrupt the skin’s protective ability against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

The findings indicates that people who eat late at night are more vulnerable to sunburn and longer-term effects such as skin ageing and skin cancer.

Joseph S. Takahashi, Chairman of Neuroscience at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center said,”This finding is surprising. I did not think the skin was paying attention to when we are eating.”

In the study, the team showed that mice given food only during the day — an abnormal eating time for the otherwise nocturnal animals — sustained more skin damage when exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) light during the day than during the night.

This outcome occurred, at least in part, because an enzyme that repairs UV-damaged skin — xeroderma pigmentosum group A (XPA) — shifted its daily cycle to be less active in the day.

Researchers said mice that were fed only during their usual evening times did not show altered XPA cycles and were less susceptible to daytime UV rays.

Takahashi said,”It is likely that if you have a normal eating schedule, then you will be better protected from UV during the daytime,”

Takahashi added,”If you have an abnormal eating schedule, that could cause a harmful shift in your skin clock, like it did in the mouse.”

Besides disrupting XPA cycles, changing eating schedules could also affect the expression of about 10 per cent of the skin’s genes.

However, more research is needed to better understand the links between eating patterns and UV damage in people, particularly how XPA cycles are affected, the researchers said.

The study was published in Cell Reports.
