    With the current economic climate in the country, it is no news that top tier smartphones cost an arm and maybe a few fingers - especially the 4G LTE connectivity supporting ones.

    So, I was mind-blown when I came across this new OEM that has rolled out a ridiculously wallet-friendly 4G network supporting smartphone!


    OEM Cagabi, has rolled out the Cagabi One smartphone which is a mid-range smartphone device that offers pretty impressive specs and at a really "crazy" price (considering the N ~ $  craziness).

    The Cagabi One device offers support for 4G network connectivity, features a IPS HD Screen and comes packing an OminVision camera. Its general design is not shabby either and it comes in 7 different color variants to suit everybody's personal preference.

    In the aftermath of the sad suicide of a Medical doctor who jumped into the 3rd mainland bridge lagoon, a hoax has reared its head online and on ALL social media platforms mainly but not limited to instant messaging app: Whatsapp.

    This hoax that originated from Whatsapp has also made its way to major social media platforms, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.


    The hoax state that a certain phone number 08030004900 , is responsible for the doctor's suicide act as it was this number that called the doctor prior to his suicide.

    Below is the hoax message:

    "Gud evening ,i hope u guys ave heard dat d police saved anoda woman tryn to jump into d lagoon today..pls my sisters dis is d number calling dem..08030004900... i didnt really blive until a friend tld me d number called her nd started sayn sum enchantment and d nxt thing she heard waz tld to 08030004900 kill her self wit any possible means she has... d same number called her friends broda in skul nd if nt for her friend's broda roommate dat stop him.. he wud ave stabbed himself wit d knife in his hands.. so pls sisters lets pass dis information.. nd lets also b prayerful.. d was d same number dat called dat doctor dat jumped into d lagoon too... #TAKEHEED"
    "Pls don't pick calls from d number. Two of my course mates were saved cos dey missed d call. pls spread the news"

    This is however simply an unfounded rumor, a hoax!

    Yas!!! Super Mario Run is now available for Android devices!!!


    Nintendo promised us Android users that the game will be evemtually rolled out to the ANdroid platform and finally, it has!!!




    Super Mario has always been Nitendo's best gaming offering right from when video games were the shiznit! And now they have brought the game to mobile platforms.

    Super Mario Run on Android rendering starts from version 2.0 and it 4 coloured "Yoshis" as additional playabale characters. 

    The Android version, quite similar to the iOS version is FREE to try but if  you want to access the game in its entirety you are required to make a one-time $9.99 purchase which in my opinion is worth it as the game is addictively interesting.




    You can download and try out the game by downloading from the below links.

    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:

    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).

    Excerpts from Umar Danbatta's disclosure:

    “In 2015, Nigerian telecom consumers spent a whooping $5.6 billion on telecommunications services. And in 2016, they topped it up by another $1 billion to make it $6.6 billion.That is why today’s event is remarkable.

    Over time, sport utility vehicles have come to be a formidable force in the automobile space.
    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.
