I got my MI Band this week (Ordered from AliExpress, took 3 weeks to deliver) and have been using it for the past couple of days now. While some of you are still waiting for the 5/5 date for the Band to go on sale in India, I thought it would be a good idea to share my experience about the MI Band with you all. This review should help you with the decision making “Should I buy Mi Band”. This review is not sponsored by Xiaomi or any other profit making Org, so you can rely on what I say here.

Packaging
As if you care, but the box in which the MI Band comes is top notch and may remind you Apple packaging as well. It is made of environment friendly material and keeps the band safe and sound within the box. Once you open the box, it has only three things that you care about,
1. The Sensor Capsule
2. The Band (whatever color you chose)
3. The proprietary charging cable.

Charing the Band
Once you take out the capsule from the band, you can figure out pretty easily about how the capsule can fit inside the charging cable. It doesn’t come with a wall charging adapter. Just plug in to some PC via the USB port and you are good. Once it is charged fully it will go on upto 30 days. Which is an amazing thing and no other fitness band can match so far.

App for MI Band
Once the device is charged, the next thing you want to do it download the app for it. It’s called Mi Fit and available on Play Store (Android) and App Store (iOS)
Turn the bluetooth on of your mobile device.
Launch the app.

Pairing the Device
When you launch the app for the first time, it will ask you to login to your Mi Account.
In case you don’t have any MI account already, I strongly suggest you create one and then login to the account.
Head to the settings section and tap on Pair Device.
Just hold the Mi Band close to the phone and rest of the steps should be done automatically in the next 5-10 secs.
The device firmware may also get upgraded the first time you pair it with the app.

What it does?
It monitors your movement and can accurately measure your steps, calories burnt etc.
Tracks your sleep pattern automatically. No need to click anything to activate sleep mode.
You can set alarm on the Mi Band using the app. It vibrates to wake you up.
Set notification alert for your phone events. Like if you don’t observe a phone call which is ringing for last 3 secs, enabling the right setting will set your Mi Band vibrate and alert you about the call.
Customize the notification light of the Mi Band (Blue, Red, Pink and Green)

The Final Verdict
Should I buy Mi Band? Just go for it man, a fitness band that costs less than Rs. 1000, has great build quality, waterproof, tracks activity and sleep, notification alert, alarm etc. (Some extra features if you have a MI phone)
You can’t go wrong with this device. Just buy it.

If you care for your desktop themes and styling a little bit, I am sure there are times when you felt like changing the cursor as well. While in windows, this process is relatively easier, in Ubuntu mouse cursor doesn’t change issue has been there forever.

Now a days Ubuntu provides you tool like “Unity Tweak Tool” where under Appearance section there is a prominent option for Cursor related stuff. Child’s play right.. Well not so much..

Unity-Cursor-Ubuntu

Even though you select the desired Cursor from the lot and click on apply, for some strange reason Ubuntu always shows it’s low to the DMZ-White cursor (Default Cursor). Here is how you can fix this problem..

Use the following command in Terminal
sudo update-alternatives –config x-cursor-theme

Then enter the corresponding number for the cursor you like..

To see the changes either restart your computer or use compiz –replace command in terminal window.

If this doesn’t do the trick, here is what you can do to fix this once and for all.
Run the command sudo gedit in terminal and then open the following file in gedit.
/usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

Change the cursor name from DMZ-White to whatever you want like Oxy-oxygen (refer the list you got in the command prompt.
To see the changes either restart your computer or use compiz –replace command in terminal window.

Hope this helps in solving the Ubuntu Mouse cursor doesn’t change issue. Don’t forget to like and share this post if it helped. That the

In case you are wondering whether Super slim PS3 purchased in USA can be used in India without any issues or not or is there any way to make it work seamlessly in India, I will try to help you in this article.

PS3

Region Free Games
All PS3 games (except Persona 4 Arena) are region-free. This means you can buy PS3 games from anywhere and they will work on your console. So when it comes to playing games, you can get them from any Indian store and they will work.

Region Free Blu-Ray Movies
Blu-ray movies, however, are region locked. If you buy movies in India, they will not play on your PS3. This cannot be changed.
(NOTE: Some blu-rays are region-free, meaning they will play on any system, but they are rare. Region-free discs usually have this mentioned on the box.)

Power Adapter
As for power restrictions, the PS3 has a universal power adapter built in. Meaning you can just connect your PS3 to an Indian power socket and it will work. Just use a pin converter or an Indian PS3 power cable.

PS3 Warranty
As for warranty, you can’t get warranty support in India for a PS3 from the US.

Moral of the Story
You can just plug it in and use it. All games will work. Movies bought in India won’t, though. Warranty isn’t international.

Hope this answers your questions. Thanks for reading the article. Share it with your friends who might be having the same question in their head as well.
