Moonlight and La La Land Confusion

The biggest Hollywood night, The 89th Academy Awards, happened to commend on 26th February 2017 at Los Angeles. With all the excitement and zest, the night passed by leaving behind some beautiful memories. However splendid the night was, still there happened an unavoidable mistake. Yes you guess it right, I am talking about the best picture award's confusion. Presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty mistakenly announced La La Land as the winner of the night's biggest award i.e The best picture's award, with cast and crew flooding the stage. Producer Jordan Horowitz delivered his acceptance speech, getting all into it, before the truth gradually spread through the group of people on the stage. (This is embarrassing!!)Horowitz corrected the mistake by announcing: "There's a mistake. Moonlight, you guys won best picture." On the shocked and surprised reaction from crowd, he repeated: "This is not a joke. Moonlight has won best picture."

Back in the time its intended  use was only to update statuses to let your friends know what you are up to or simply WHAT IS UP (Whatsapp?) with your life however with the passing time this app enhanced its features to messaging followed by voice calling and then video calling your contacts.

Whatsapp Is Downloading Our Statuses

Okay guys, Here I am sharing with you all another annoying aspect of Whatsapp updated version. Yea, I am talking about Whatsapp stories. Believe it or not Whatsapp has literally lost its mind and it is downloading all your and your contacts statuses in your phone without letting you know.

That means, every picture, giphy or video you are uploading is being saved in phones of all of your contacts list and every story your contacts are uploading is being saved in yours.

And it is obviously not good for so many reasons. First it is taking useless space of our phones by downloading unnecessary data. Second It is exploiting your privacy by saving your data on your contacts' devices.

Probability is that your '.statuses' file is hidden. To view it, go your "Device storage" >> "Whatsapp". Then tap on vertical ellipses icon at the top and go to setting, check "Show hidden files" and here it is.


A lot of waste of space, right?!

The feature is expected to make …
