[Guide] Remove Bixby Bloatware from Samsung Galaxy Phones

on
August 5, 2018
A few months back, I added shiny new Samsung Galaxy S9+ to my gadget list. [Yaay! :D] While Samsung flagships are known for their build quality, looks, camera, display et cetera, Samsung is notorious for adding unnecessary bloatware on their phones. One of such bloatwares that comes pre-installed is their virtual assistant Bixby and its related services. Hell, they even added a physical button for the same.

Don Hill Station, Gujarat [Updated]

on
July 14, 2017
The Don hill station is a scenic landscape located near Saputara and is perched on the border of Gujarat of Maharashtra and around 30km from Ahwa, the headquarter of the Dangs. I experienced its natural beauty few days back. (16th August, 2014). Don can be definitely the next hill station of Gujarat after Saputara if Gujarat Tourism Department put some efforts to develop it. It's still hidden from most of the tourists' focus, mouth publicity is the only thing helping it to attract avid travelers.
