HP and Bang & Olufsen - Introducing the Next Gen of Gaming and Premium Audio Experience for the Indian Market

What happens when the pioneers of tech meet the maestros of music? Nothing less than sheer magic!


Last month, a bunch of elite, Delhi-based tech bloggers witnessed what I'd call a strategic alliance between HP and Bang & Olufsen.





We were invited for the launch of the new range of HP Notebooks by none other than Mr. Ketan Patel, Director, Personal Systems, PPS, HP India.

Day & Date: Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Venue: Q'La, 4A, Bhagwan Dass Marg, Mehrauli, Delhi

HP B&O Nite started with a DJ session with MIDIval Punditz, an Indian fusion group formed by two musicians, Gaurav Raina and Tapan Raj. Their music was mesmerizing, revolving mostly around changer, jungle, electronica, and North Indian classical music.

Then came the moment we had all been waiting for. The launch of new and improved HP Pavilion 15 (with B&O PLAY) and HP Omen which is a gaming laptop designed in partnership with Bang & Olufsen.

The event was facilitated by key representatives from both HP and Bang & Olufsen, such as:
  • Mr. Ketan Patel: Director – Personal Systems, PPS, HP India
  • Mr. Gaganmeet Singh: CEO, Bang & Olufsen India

By collaborating with Bang & Olufsen, HP hopes to pack a punch. The PC market across the world is already under the radar for concerns over weight, form factor, audio and video quality, performance, power consumption, portability, etc.

Despite the volatility in this market, one thing that hasn't changed much is the customer's growing appetite for non-stop entertainment.

Customers demand a lot from their devices these days - fantastic sound reproduction through headphones or built-in speakers, enhanced sound to their liking, superior gaming features, etc.

And that is where HP sees a BIG opportunity.

The new HP Notebooks promise to deliver a powerful and immersive audio experience through state-of-the-art sound and tuning from Bang & Olufsen.

Why I Will Never Write For BlogAdda Again

I'll keep this straight. My love affair with BlogAdda is ending. And I am so glad it's finally over. From past one year, I kept dragging on. I was lovelorn and stupid, holding on to a belief that something better was in store for me.
Since early 2014, the blogging community in India has grown significantly. Thanks to influencer marketing campaigns across the country, small businesses like BlogAdda have started to flourish. Most of these companies have discovered an easy way to engage brands with bloggers - via contests and events.    
I don't like contests per se. Ironically, I keep participating in them. If thinking about winning in contests is a crime, I'm guilty as charged. I spend hours in researching information and interviewing people, preparing drafts by including text, illustrations and videos, editing and publishing posts, promoting them via social media, and much more.
If you think all of this is easy, well, think again. God only knows how much sacrifices I had…

Teamonk Unveils Its Valentine's Collection - Customized Gift Packs Just For Tea Lovers

I was ecstatic to participate in a tea tasting session hosted by Teamonk Global today at the DLF Club 5 in Gurgaon. One of the biggest reasons for me to be a part of this session was to know more about the specialty teas from the Teamonk brand.


The session was an eye-opener of sorts - as tea specialists from the company trained us on the tea basics, food pairing, blending, and most importantly, the history and health benefits of tea.


For me, the best part of the session was the unveiling of Valentine's Collection by Teamonk Global. These customized gift packs are lovingly crafted just for tea lovers.



And the timing could not have been apter! Just the perfect Valentine's gift for your loved ones.


My recommendation would be to try out the new Azaya Rose Tea with the exquisite Signature Pottery collection. It's the ideal handpicked teaware collection for the choicest tea.



The purity, rich aroma, quality, and peerless taste of whole leaf teas were further demonstrated through …
