A new digitised notebook allows users to enjoy the art of writing
For those who still enjoy writing in a world that is moving towards digitising everything, Tech guru Aki Anastasious says the Rocketbook notepad is definitely a must-have.
The Rocketbook System is the combination of a special notebook and a free mobile app, which allows the user to write notes and create designs in the notebook with a pen.
The Rocketbook app accurately and quickly captures and sends your notes to pre-configured cloud services where they can be accessed at a later stage.
The beautiful part of it is that you never have to use another notebook so it's eco-friendly. You can literately put it in a microwave for a few seconds and it erases all the pen marks you scribbled. There is also another one where you use a damp cloth to erase everything you've written.Aki Anastasiou, Tech Guru

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has come under intense criticism in India for the role its popular tools have played in amplifying violence, which has happened in Myanmar as well.
The social network giant is making changes it hopes will drastically curtail the ability of users to spread fake news via its social messaging service by making it harder for people to forward messages to very large groups.
WhatsApp outlined its plan to limit the number of people to whom users can forward messages in a blog post on Thursday night.
Globally, users will now be able to forward messages to just 20 people, although that will be limited to only five in India. The previous limit was over 250.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and related technologies will generate as many jobs as they displace over the next 20 years, according to a report by audit firm PwC which focused mainly on the United Kingdom.
The research found that while AI could displace roughly seven million jobs in the country, it could also create 7.2 million roles, resulting in a modest net boost of around 200,000 jobs.
It has also estimated that about 20 percent of jobs would be automated over the next 20 years and no sector would be unaffected.
In a country like ours we should be focusing aggressively on our unique selling point which is our tourism and I believe we just not doing enough on that front...Aki Anastasiou, Tech Guru
