Tim Cook considers Apple iPhone X price ‘good value’ As Apple gears up to ship its iPhone 8 series, we all know that the real star of the show here is the upcoming iPhone X. However, the starting price of $999 for a smartphone is quite high, even for Apple.

Vodafone calls TRAI’s abolition of call charges a ‘retrograde’ step. After TRAI decided to lower mobile calling rates to six paise per minute, Vodafone called the move a ‘retrograde’ measure. “We are disappointed with this decision and are now considering our options in response,” the company said but did not specify its options. Mobile companies currently charge 14 paise per minute for allowing a domestic call from a rival operator to terminate on their network, which has now been reduced to six paise per minute as of October 1, 2017.

Meanwhile, Reliance Jio calls the response from rivals Vodafone and Airtel “baseless allegations”.


I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
