Easypaisa Discontinues its Virtual Debit Card Service

Easypaisa has discontinued its flagship Virtual Debit Card service, we have checked.

The service worked on the same principle as any debit card does. However, since those cards could be used online (for shopping etc.), consumers also used to call them as virtual credit cards as well.

Subul Naqvi, from Telenor Bank’s Corporate Communications division, confirmed the development and said that the bank has decided to pull back the service for now.

Google gets go-ahead to restore cell phone service in Puerto Rico with its balloons

The Federal Communications Commission has approved an application from Alphabet — Google’s parent company — to fly Project Loon balloons over Puerto Rico in an effort to provide emergency cell coverage to the island, according to Reuters.

Puerto Rico is still reeling in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, which struck the island on Sept. 20 and paralyzing winds, rain and storm surge. When it hit, it was nearly a category 5 storm, and pummeled the island with gusts and rains for more than 30 hours.Two weeks later, most of the island still doesn’t have power or clean water. And for large portions of the island, cell coverage is still a pipe dream, too.

The best mid-range smartphone, now with 4K video stabilisation

The world loves the OnePlus 5. It gets so many things right: It has a lengthy battery life, speedy performance and -crucially – it’s easy on the wallet, too. But there’s one major feature it was sorely lacking – 4K video stabilisation. It’s time to rejoice though, Electronic Image Stabilisation is here, and it works wonders.

The lack of proper video stabilisation was a big deal breaker for some, and was so detrimental that it rendered 4K recording entirely useless. This new over the air update mind you – OxygenOS 4.5.7 – fixes this. And, as you can see in my test footage against a OnePlus 5 without the update, does a phenomenal job at it, too.
