The Supreme Court on Monday refused to entertain the plea filed by senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy seeking e-auction of media rights of the Indian Premier League (IPL).A three-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra and also comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud and A. M. Khanwilkar, refused to entertain the plea filed by Swamy in the case.The 11th edition of the IPL is scheduled to start in April next year.Swamy, however, said he wanted to file an Interim Application (IE) highlighting alleged collusion and conflict of interest on behalf of a BCCI functionary who also runs a news channel. This plea was allowed by the top court.”Today SC allowed me to file an IA to seek directions in the IPL auction’s conflict of interest of Rajiv Shukla as IPL chairman & Star TV bid,” he tweeted.The Supreme Court had earlier asked BCCI COA chief Vinod Rai to file an affidavit specifying how the ongoing tender process was better than the e-auction.The apex court had on July 28 sought the response of the BCCI on Swamy’s plea that e-auction of the media rights should be done to ensure transparency as the rights are to be given for the next five years.Rai had previously backed the idea of inviting closed bids. On July 11, Swamy moved to the apex court, seeking e-auction of media rights for the matches of the lucrative T20 league.A total of 24 companies have expressed interest in bidding for the IPL media rights.advertisementSubmission of the Invitation to Tender (ITT) is set on September 4.Brands such as Discovery, Airtel, BAM Tech, Yupp TV, DAZN/Perform Group, Yahoo, Star India, ISPN, Amazon and Reliance Jio are among the companies who will be contending for the television and digital rights of IPL.At present, Sony Pictures Network India (SPNI) is holding the rights of the IPL. However, their deal is going to an end after the event’s next edition.In 2008, the Singapore-based World Sports Group bagged the IPL television rights for a 10-year period with a USD 918 million bid.It simultaneously signed a deal with Multi Screen Media Pvt. Ltd. (MSM) that Sony would be the official broadcaster. The contract was recast before IPL 2009, with MSM agreeing to pay USD1.63 billion for nine years.

Honor View 20’s hypnotic colors will make your jaw drop Phantom blue Honor 8X is pure eye candy The Honor View 20 may be Huawei’s only new phone at CES 2019 (and, in fact, the only satisfying phone of the entire show), but the company threw in a bonus device. Or rather, a bonus color for the Honor 8X: Phantom Blue. Take a look at the photos below — it’s pretty.What makes the color “phantom” is the shifting quality of its finish, which changes from blue to purple and pink when it catches the light. It’s a technique that Huawei and other Chinese rivals have used on phones in 2018 to eye-catching effect. The Huawei P20 Pro was one particularly successful example, with a similar color gradient to the new Honor 8X shade. $174 Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment 2:58 CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.Dazzling Honor View 20 has you in its thrall at CES 2019 14 Photos Mentioned Above Huawei Honor 8X (black) CES 2019 0 Huawei Honor 8X See it Preview • The Honor 8X is like a super-cheap iPhone XS Max, in all the best ways Dazzling Honor View 20 phone will dazzle you Phones Tags 28 Photos Huawei has sold 6 million Honor 8X phones, the company announced ahead of CES 2019.The Honor View 20, which we also saw here at CES, comes in Phantom Red and Phantom Blue, which are equally mesmerizing.

Manuel Carrillo III/Roadshow One of the fringe benefits of having an electric car is that for the most part, they require much less maintenance than a comparable vehicle powered by an internal combustion engine. Tesla is taking advantage of this after crunching the data on the last few years of service and vehicle data by moving away from a recommended yearly service program to one that only requires vehicles to come in when parts need to be replaced.This probably sounds crazy if you’ve never spent a significant amount of time with an electric vehicle, but think about it like this: What are the most common service items on your ICE-powered car? Oil changes, brakes and tires. Add in things like accessory belts and timing belts that degrade with use and heat and all of a sudden you have a pretty full maintenance schedule.An EV doesn’t have engine oil to change, nor do the motors produce the same kind of heat that gasoline or diesel-powered engines do. Parts aren’t subjected to the same kind of temperature extremes. With brakes, many EV drivers use their vehicles with high levels of regenerative braking. This uses the drivetrain to slow the car and recharge the battery and saves significant wear on the vehicle’s braking components. Brake fluid, however, will still be checked every two years for water contamination.Add in the fact that Teslas are internet-connected and have robust remote diagnostic capabilities and a yearly check-up seems even less necessary. Tesla representatives are quick to point out that this shift in service methodology has nothing to do with a Tesla’s warranty, and vehicles that need service can get it.Tesla will stop pushing its prepaid maintenance plans for customers, but will still honor the plans that have been sold. It seems likely that the “as-necessary” service system will end up being cheaper than a prepaid plan for customers anyway.
