In what is a hilarious development, scientist has used quantum theory to explain why puns & jokes are actually funny, lol.

You will agree with me that this sounds like a joke in itself but trust me, its not!

Image result for laughing animated gif

The researchers in a paper outlined a quantum inspired model of humor, hoping that this new approach may succeed at a more nuanced modelling of the cognition of humor.

One of the corresponding authors of the written work, Liane Gabora (University of British Columbia), explained: 

“Funniness is not a pre-existing ‘element of reality’ that can be measured; it emerges from an interaction between the underlying nature of the joke, the cognitive state of the listener, and other social and environmental factors,” 

The results from this newly developed theory points to the fact that apart from information delivery, something else is happening on a cognitive level that makes the joke as a whole funny whereas its deconstructed components are not, and which makes a quantum approach appropriate to study this phenomenon.

In what is a sad development, Airtel has discontinued the pocket friendly, pretty dope Airtel weekend plan that gives a cool 1GB for N100 and 7GB for N700.

The Airtel weekend plan that could previously be subscribed for via ussd code *474*1# has now being sadly stopped.

The plan had been subject to eligibility issues with only select Airtel SIMs being able to enjoy the privilege of the weekend plan - However, the eligible ones would agree that Airtel's decision to discontinue the plan is a big blow!

Now, upon dialing the *474*1# ussd code, you get the below response message:




Well, since airtel has decided to do this, it is imperative that we find other juicy alternatives, below is a list of cool alternatives that you should checkout:

Holla Nerddicts!
I am sure you have been seeing the notification I put up stating "we will be officially and permanently parked to Techgasm247.com from April 2nd".

I am sure you guys are curious as to why I have decided to permanently park Nerddict to the new domain, below are my reasons.

Image result for domain migration

Reasons for Nerddict Domain Migration


  • While Nerddict is a great domain name (if I do say so myself, lol), there are a lot of similar domain names out there.
  • Secondly, I discovered an available domain name that is more compatible with my chosen blogging niche (TECH!!!) i.e. Techgasm247.com
  • I think the new chosen domain name is much more catchy and memorable, don't you?
  • Monetization issues: Nerddict domain has issues with Google Adsense. Of course I blog for passion but being able to monitize my blog is also important. Google Adsense remains the best ad rendering service that would ensure my blog retains its awesome user friendliness, hence the need to get back to being friends with Google.

Things to Know About the Domain Change

  • The permanent domain change from Nerddict to Techgasm247.com would happen on the 2nd of April (not on the 1st because....April fool, lol)
  • All posts and pages on Nerddict will be available on Techgasm247.com via a permanent 301 redirection
  • The new website comes with a different theme design: CHECK IT OUT (we are not done designing yet).
  • There will be a new Android app for the new website that will be made available on Google playstore (kindly download it when it is launched *winks*)
  • There are issues with our current RSS feeds list, PLEASE resubscribe to our new website RSS feed upon launch
  • We will be starting our "Top Commenter" end-of-the-month monthly airtime giveaway (starting April), so always drop relevant comments on our blog posts.

We have seen a few Smart For-two on the streets of Nigeria.. looks cute and efficient on gas. But maintenance may be an ish. To wow its enthusiasts, a BRABUS version has been launched… and the price is not smiling.

A base price of $52,760 is about N24m in Nigeria. Shipping and custom duty will also add a couple of millions to the landing cost. Despite this steep price, we’ll definitely see this on Nigerian roads.


Only 125 units will be produced with 123hp 3 cylinder engine which gets from 0-60 in 9.2 seconds.. and a maximum speed of 109mph (177.7kph).

Usually referred to as “jeep” in this part of the world, the prestige it elicits has made it a popular choice amongst car lovers. Thus, the competition between automotive brands to churn out qualitative products in this genre that would keep them relevant, has propelled a good number of them to blaze the trail.

Volkswagen are working on an awesome self driving pod. i.e. the Volkswagen Sedric and it is expected to be on the road by 2025.

volkswagen-sedric

Sedric is an acronym of Self-Driving Car. The car comes with 5 lidar scanners (which measures distance to various objects), 7 cameras and several sensors to make it a Level 5 fully autonomous vehicle. Level 5 is the highest which means no single human intervention is required while driving.

You can summon the car with its special key called the OneButton and you will receive details of the arrival time. Once on board, you can set your itinerary via the voice command system.

Technological direction in the manufacture of automobiles that are super fast is laudable. It crystallizes the limitless possibilities in automobile production.

Incidentally, a man named Ferrucio Lamborghini – several years ago – foresaw today’s reality that is redefining human advancement. Emigrating from dream land to reality land, he worked on birthing automotive vehicles that would bedazzle observers and prospective owners through his Lamborghini automobile company. 

2017-lamborghini-centenario

The profound relevance of commemorating this distinguished innovator led to the 2017 Lamborghini Centenario, which is generating a lot of positive reactions in the automobile space. You will soon realise why.


The term “Lamborghini” rings a bell in any mind that is up-to-date with modern trends. Usually flaunted in music videos, it portrays affluence and class. 

In some situations, it is used as a synonym for exotic vehicles. Lamborghini Centenario of the 2017 model did not fall short of expectations as it retains the enviable peculiarities associated with the Lamborgini brand. 

The exterior is out of this world, with a skillfully designed and crafted front fascia and back end that induces awe and admiration. Immediately, one senses agility personified that is road-worthy. 

Its proximity to the ground is pivotal to the automobile’s acceleration as well as balance. It has an aspirated V-12 engine that positions the car to reach a top speed of 217 mph and 0-62 mph in just 2.8 seconds. 

Also, the rear-wheel steering enable the back tyres to turn in contrast to the front ones for easy reversing and maneuvering, when on a low speed.

Blackberry has launched its first dual SIM supported Android smartphone i.e. Blackberry Aurora.

Image result for blackberry aurora

The Blackberry Aurora is a 5.5 inch on-cell display smartphone with HD resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) and comes powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC  processor alongside an impressive 4GB of RAM (processor remains a letdown though), the device features 32GB internal memory which is expandable via a microSD and offers full connectivity support which includes 4G LTE.

The Aurora does well camera wise, featuring a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 8 megapixel selfie snapper. The device comes running on Android v7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and comes preloaded with BlackBerry Hub as well as DTEKTM.

The Blackberry Aurora unlike most Android smartphones of this age does not feature a fingerprint scanner but comes packing a respectable 3000mAh battery.

The device is priced at $262 (approx N105,000) and is targeted at the Indonesian market though I am sure it will surely get a worldwide expansion.
