The outgoing midfielder is often compared to Kenny Dalglish and Billy Liddell when it comes to the best in the club’s history, but his achievements and dedication trump the lot

Among the multitude of tributes, it was hard to beat the wonderfully eloquent, particularly brief tweet from a World Cup, double Champions League and double European Championship winner. “My mate. My hero,” wrote Xabi Alonso when Steven Gerrard announced he was leaving Liverpool.

Others nevertheless tried to. Luis Suarez, the man Gerrard regards as his finest team-mate, branded the Liverpudlian a “legend”. Daniel Sturridge, who may succeed him as the face of the franchise, described Gerrard as Liverpool’s greatest player.

Sturridge is too young to have watched Kenny Dalglish play, let alone Billy Liddell, the third man often touted as Anfield’s most illustrious individual, but he has a point. Jamie Carragher, who has a deeper understanding of history, started making the same argument about five years ago. Then Dalglish was appointed manager and Carragher diplomatically changed the subject.

But, as far as Liverpool are concerned, the banner in the Kop during Saturday’s farewell against Crystal Palace rang true. “The best there is, the best there was and the best there will ever be,” it read.

And without risking predictions about the future, it is a safer assertion about the past. How good was Gerrard? He touched such heights that he was named PFA Player of the Year in 2005-06, when he played predominantly as a right-sided midfielder, and Football Writers’ Footballer of the Year in 2008-09, when he operated as a No. 10. Try finding other players who have been named the best in the country in two different roles that were not even their preferred position.

It shows an extraordinary versatility. Gerrard’s gifts, of pace and power, of an ability to pass the ball incisively over both long and short distances, of a capacity to unleash ferocious shots, of fierce tackling and of being able to raise his game on major occasions, equipped him to play almost anywhere.

How good was Gerrard? So good that he was the catalyst for probably the greatest comeback of all and the man of the match in arguably the most extraordinary Champions League final yet. Ten years on, his performance in Istanbul remains as astonishing as it was then, and not just because he spent extra-time in Turkey as a wing-back. It was his masterpiece, but far from the only example of an almost unrivalled habit of determining games virtually single-handedly. Think of Olympiakos, the 2006 FA Cup final, the 2007 and 2008 trips to Newcastle or the 2012 visit of Everton, when he scored Liverpool’s first Merseyside derby hat-trick for three decades. He was the biggest of big-game players. When he decimated Real Madrid and Manchester United in the space of a few days in 2009, Zinedine Zidane felt he was the finest footballer in the world.

Gerrard was a force of nature, a one-man whirlwind. At his very best, he seemed unstoppable. Some of the other defining players of his generation only proved their excellence alongside similarly distinguished talents. Gerrard did so without them. Michael Owen and Fernando Torres were both lesser forces when separated from Gerrard, a sign a footballer always aware of his own goal tally was invariably selfless when serving as a supplier on the pitch, but he could prosper with inferior colleagues. In the modern era, where talent has been concentrated at the top, surely no great player has had as many mediocre team-mates as Gerrard.

No Liverpool player has since Liddell, and he was at his most prolific in the old Division Two. Dalglish spent the majority of his Anfield career alongside others luminaries, such as Graeme Souness, Ian Rush and Alan Hansen. In the 21st century, the other elite players have come and gone; Gerrard has stayed.

Others have won more in the past but none has played a bigger part in successes, and not just because Gerrard is the only Englishman to have scored in the finals of the Champions League, the Uefa Cup, the FA Cup and the League Cup. As Carragher said on Saturday: “Without Steven Gerrard, I would not have a medal.”

Carragher can be called biased but that shows the scale of Gerrard’s contributions. He was that good. He shouldered that heavy a burden. He captained his hometown club for a dozen, often tumultuous years. John Terry has captained Chelsea for almost as long, but Liverpool’s trials and tribulations meant more responsibility rested with Gerrard; the gulf in class between him and some of his colleagues was larger.

Even in decline, even when deprived of dynamism, they turned to Gerrard in times of need. Even as his performances deteriorated, he threatened to conjure magical moments. He scored with a wonderful free kick against Basel that almost offered a Champions League lifeline. He had a header cleared off the line in the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Aston Villa. He raged at the dying of the light, trying to stamp his authority on the Manchester United game in March and succeeding only in stamping on Ander Herrera.

Greatness comes in part through longevity and loyalty and few have rejected as many chances to desert Liverpool as Gerrard, even when he allowed his head to be turned for a moment. It comes in part in the numbers and, with 185 goals in 709 games, Gerrard has scored more often than the strikers Torres and Suarez did between them and played more matches than Kevin Keegan and Souness’ combined tally. But it also comes through influence and Gerrard’s individual inspiration, his sense of drive and the blockbusting brilliance he displayed at his best propelled him into first place in the pantheon.

The forward scored three times to take his total for the season to 61 goals as Carlo Ancelotti’s men rounded off the campaign with a ruthless attacking display

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to win the European Golden Boot as Real Madrid beat Getafe 6-3 in their final league game of the season.

Ronaldo’s eighth treble of the campaign took his tally for the season to 61 goals in all competitions as he took the Pichichi with 48 strikes, seven more than Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.

He was also involved in a moment of history just before the hour mark, when he was replaced by 16-year-old Martin Odegaard, who became Real’s youngest ever Liga debutant.

Ronaldo, whose treble completed his most prolific league season, headed Real in front, but Getafe took a shock lead through superb strikes from Sergio Escudero and Diego Castro.

A Ronaldo free-kick and penalty restored Madrid’s advantage, but the sides went in level at the break as Mehdi Lacen equalised following a corner.

Quickfire goals at the start of the second half from Javier Hernandez and James Rodriguez put the hosts two clear for the first time, before Jese Rodriguez and Marcelo completed the rout.

An entertaining end-of-season affair ensured that if Carlo Ancelotti is to depart the Bernabeu, he will do so on the back of a crowd-pleasing performance.

After a quiet start to proceedings, Madrid went in front in the 13th minute through a familiar source.

Marcelo delivered a teasing cross from the left, and Ronaldo was left unmarked to power a header beyond Jordi Codina and into the far corner of the net.

But if Madrid thought they were in for a straightforward victory, Escudero and Castro demonstrated that the visitors had other ideas.

With 23 minutes gone, Escudero unleashed a rasping left-foot shot from 30 yards that flew past Iker Casillas into the bottom-right corner and, three minutes later, Castro curled a superb finish into the same portion of the goal from just outside the box.

Getafe’s lead lasted just six minutes, however, as Ronaldo took centre stage once more with a fizzing free-kick that curled around the wall and into the bottom-left corner with laser-like accuracy.

And with just 34 minutes on the clock the Portuguese had his hat-trick. Hernandez was bundled to the ground by Carlos Vigaray and Ronaldo made no mistake from the spot, blasting his kick straight down the middle.

Yet as half-time approached back came Getafe, who pulled level once more when Lacen hammered home from eight yards after Real failed to deal with a corner.

The entertainment continued at the start of the second half as Madrid scored twice in the first six minutes.

Hernandez drilled in a rebound after Ronaldo had somehow headed another excellent Marcelo delivery against the woodwork, before Rodriguez curled a stunning free-kick over the wall and into the top-right corner from 25 yards.

The scoring did not stop there, as Jese curled in a sublime finish from the left-hand side of the box after exchanging passes with Rodriguez.

Casillas, who has come in for criticism in recent weeks, was given a rousing ovation by the crowd during a break in play late on and Jese then teed up Marcelo for a simple 90th-minute tap-in as Real took their Liga goals tally to 118 for the campaign.

With iOS 6, Apple took a bold step to build its own mapping service, replacing Google Maps. The launch was marred with widespread criticism from the media and consumers due to the lacklustre points-of-interest (POI) data, and the removal of public transit directions.

Even though Apple has been improving the point of interest data overtime, one of the major features missing currently in Apple’s Maps app is public transit directions. When Apple introduced Maps, it said that transit directions weren’t a part of the app because third-party developers would do a better job at providing regional transit directions.

Apple was expected to add the public transit directions to the Maps app in iOS 8, but it did not make it to the feature list. Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac reports that according to his sources Apple will definitely be adding support for public transit direction to the Maps app in iOS 9.

Apple now hopes to launch its Transit service with iOS 9, according to sources. Apple currently plans to debut bus, subway, and train route navigation as the central upgrade to the Maps app in iOS 9 at WWDC [..]

[..] Sources said last year that the transit functionality for Maps includes larger icons for users to more quickly spot airports, subway stations, and train stations within the Maps app. In addition to the main functionality, there is also a trip planning feature for transit, and a new Transit view alongside the existing Standard, Hybrid, and Satellite/Flyover views.

The report notes that Apple decided to remove the public transit functionality from the Maps app from iOS 8 very late into development because of “personnel issues, data inconsistencies, and coverage for only a small subset of Apple’s major markets”.

Apple is also working on indoor maps, which will help users navigate major buildings, offices, and landmarks. However, the feature may not be released this year. Apple is apparently using autonomous robots as big as iRobot’s Roomba vacuum cleaners, and fitted with iBeacon sensors, to collect data for its indoor mapping project.

Apple is widely expected to unveil iOS 9 at next month’s developer conference. According to rumors, Apple plans to focus on optimizations and refinements with iOS 9. It will also include a new ‘Home app’ that can be used to manage HomeKit accessories. Siri will also reportedly be getting a makeover for iOS 9, to better match it with the Siri experience on the Apple Watch. Apple may also use the ‘San Francisco’ Apple Watch font in iOS 9.

What do you think about the public transit feature in the Maps app? I am also hoping that Apple will also add Google Street-view like feature in iOS 9, especially after mystery camera-fitted Apple vans have been spotted in the U.S.



Apple released iOS 8.1.3 on January 27, 2015, which fixed a number of vulnerabilities that killed the TaiG jailbreak.

So it has been a very long time since a jailbreak for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch has been released.

iOS 8.4 jailbreak may be wishful thinking, but the fact that Stefan Essar aka i0n1c showed off a jailbroken iPhone 6 Plus running on iOS 8.4, we know that it is possible.

But since Apple has seeded iOS 8.4 beta to developers almost a month back, with the public release expected later this month or next month, I think it makes sense that the jailbreak (assuming there is one) is released only after Apple releases iOS 8.4 to the public.

With Apple widely expected to unveil iOS 9 at the WWDC, and follow it up by releasing it to developers, it does look like iOS 8.4 will be the final version for iOS 8. In case of iOS 7 last year, iOS 7.1.2 was the final release, so Apple has already released a lot more software updates for iOS 8. It also seems unlikely that Apple will waste any more resources on iOS 8, as Apple Engineers will be busy fixing the bugs in iOS 9 to be able to get ready for the release in September along with the launch of iPhone 6s/iPhone 7 or whatever Apple ends up calling it.

If iOS 8.3 jailbreak is released then Apple will have the opportunity to patch the vulnerabilities in iOS 8.4. An iOS 8.4 jailbreak will ensure that users will be able to enjoy their jailbroken device at least until September, after which time they can decide if they want to upgrade to iOS 9.

There has been no updates from the TaiG team after dismissing the iOS 8.2 jailbreak rumor, and saying that they are working on a jailbreak. Let’s hope that the iOS 8.4 jailbreak is not wishful thinking, and that they are just waiting patiently for iOS 8.4 to be released before releasing the jailbreak.

In the meantime, you should resist the temptation of upgrading your iOS device to iOS 8.4 when it is released, until there is more clarity about the jailbreak. It is quite possible (let’s hope not) that Apple will patch the vulnerability in iOS 8.4 public release, and jailbreak is released only for iOS 8.3 or lower.

Please also note that any site claiming to have a jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3 – iOS 8.4 is a scam, so stay clear from such scam sites. If there is a jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3 – iOS 8.4, it will be available for free, and we’ll be let you know as soon as possible. Check our iOS 8.3 jailbreak page for the latest updates.

What do you think? Should a jailbreak be released as soon as it is ready for the public? Or should the hackers wait for iOS 8.4 to be released to the public before releasing the jailbreak? Let me know what you think in the comments below.



Royal Challengers Bangalore have been known to be heavily dependent on their superstars to come good. This season, however, there has been a refreshing change with the likes of Mandeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal and Sarfaraz Khan supporting the mega stars in the team. Today was another example of RCB’s young guns coming to their rescue as Mandeep, Harshal Patel and Sreenath Aravind sparkled for the team to help beat Rajasthan Royals in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 Eliminator in Pune.

It still needed one of RCB’s big stars to guide their younger players, with AB de Villiers playing a stunning innings with the bat. The right-hander slammed 66 off 38 and together with Mandeep Singh (54* off 34) helped RCB overcome a tough start. The pair added a sizzling 113-run stand to lift their side out of trouble and help them end with a daunting total of 180/4. Defending a strong total, RCB’s bowlers put in a clinical effort as they took wickets at regular intervals to restrict the inaugural champions to 109 and win by 71 runs. RCB will now play Chennai Super Kings for a spot in the final alongside Mumbai Indians.

Sreenath Aravind, who was brought in for this game in place of Ashok Dinda, repaid his captain’s faith as he struck early to send back Shane Watson in the second over. He also had James Faulkner out caught and bowled later in the innings to end with fantastic figures of two for 20 off his four overs.

Harshal Patel, too, chipped in with the important wickets of Sanju Samson and Karun Nair as RCB maintained a tight leash on the scoring despite Ajinkya Rahane (42) looking in decent touch. Rahane was the fifth wicket down for RR, when he top-edged a slog sweep off Chahal to be out caught in the 14th over. The wicket evaporated whatever little hopes RR had of an upset win as they went on to lose their last five for 17 runs to be bowled out for a lowly 109.

Earlier, having won the toss and opting to bat first, RCB made a steady start to their innings with Chris Gayle getting into his stride early. He looked in ominous touch, scoring the first 26 off the 38 his team added in the first five overs. However, Dhawal Kulkarni got his team the prized wicket of the West Indian by bowling him for 27. Kulkarni added another important wicket to his tally as he had Virat Kohli out caught and bowled in his next over. RCB had slipped to 46/2 and looked in danger of being restricted to a low score.

ABD and Mandeep Singh, however, had other ideas. They started slowly, scoring 4 off the first 13 deliveries they played, but Mandeep cut loose soon after. Kulkarni was smacked for a six and a four, before James Faulkner went for two fours in the over. de Villiers, too, got into the act as he slammed Ankit Sharma for two sixes and a four in an over.

The onslaught continued into the death overs with overs 16 and 17 giving RCB a combined 24 runs. ABD notched up his fifty in the next over with a top-edge for a six and a clean strike over long-on for his fourth six of the innings. He was run-out in the penultimate over of the innings, but he had already added 66 off just 38 deliveries.

The wicket did little to stall RCB’s momentum as Dinesh Karthik, Sarfaraz Khan and Mandeep combined to whack 21 off the last eight balls to give their side 180/4. It proved to be 71 runs too many for RR.

Using keyboard shortcuts can greatly increase your productivity, reduce repetitive strain, and help keep you focused. For example, highlighting text with the keyboard and pressing Ctrl + C is much faster than taking your hand from the keyboard, highlighting the text using the mouse, clicking copy from the file menu, and then putting your hand back in place on the keyboard. Below are our top 10 keyboard shortcuts we recommend everyone memorize and use.

Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Insert

Both Ctrl + C and Ctrl + Insert will copy the highlighted text or selected item. If you want to cut instead of copy press Ctrl + X.

Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert

Both the Ctrl + V and Shift + Insert will paste the text or object that’s in the clipboard.

Ctrl + Z and Ctrl + Y

Undo any change. For example, if you cut text, pressing this will undo it. This can also often be pressed multiple times to undo multiple changes. Pressing Ctrl + Y would redo the undo.

Ctrl + F

Pressing Ctrl + F opens the Find in any program. This includes your Internet browser to find text on the current page.

Alt + Tab or Ctrl + Tab

Quickly switch between open programs moving forward.

Tip: Press Ctrl + Tab to switch between tabs in a program.

Tip: Adding the Shift key to Alt + Tab or Ctrl + Tab will move backwards. For example, if you are pressing Alt + Tab and pass the program you want to switch to, press Alt + Shift + Tab to move backwards to that program.

Tip: Windows Vista and 7 users can also press the Windows Key + Tab to switch through open programs in a full screenshot of the Window.

Ctrl + Back space and Ctrl + Left or Right arrow

Pressing Ctrl + Backspace will delete a full word at a time instead of a single character.

Holding down the Ctrl key while pressing the left or right arrow will move the cursor one word at a time instead of one character at a time. If you wanted to highlight one word at a time, you can hold down Ctrl + Shift and then press the left or right arrow key to move one word at a time in that direction while highlighting each word.

Ctrl + S

While working on a document or other file in almost every program, pressing Ctrl + S saves that file. This shortcut key should be used frequently anytime you’re working on anything important.

Ctrl + Home or Ctrl + End

Ctrl + Home will move the cursor to the beginning of the document and Ctrl + End will move the cursor to the end of a document. These shortcuts work with most documents, as well as web pages.

After highlighting or selecting a file, pressing F2 changes the file name to be editable, allowing you to rename the file.

Samsung has just announced its two new flagship phones for 2015 – the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge – and they’re available now. Both devices offer some improvements and new appearance, which have finally ditched its traditional plastic builds in favor of a premium metal and glass finish. The Galaxy S6 edge in particular, comes with an added curve to its display that makes it even more striking. In addition, they also posses some key differences that are worth noting.


The most obvious difference between the two models is the dual-edge display of the Galaxy S6 Edge. This makes it stand out significantly from the more traditional appearance of the standard Galaxy S6 model. Aside from the physical appearance, both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge come with the same 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display (2560 x 1440px) with a pixel density of 577ppi.



The Galaxy S6 measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8mm and weighted 138g compared to the Galaxy S6 edge’s dimensions of 142.1 x 70.1 x 7.0mm and weighted 132g, so the Galaxy S6 is slimmer but slightly heavier than the Galaxy S6 edge.


When it comes to battery capacities, the Galaxy S6 offers a 2550mAh non-removable battery while the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge has a slightly bigger capacity which is 2600mAh non-removable battery .

Color Options

Both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge are available in a wide range of colour options, including white pearl, black sapphire, and gold platinum. However, the Galaxy S6 has an additional blue topaz colour, while the Galaxy S6 edge has a green emerald colour.


The other major difference between the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge is the price. The Galaxy S6 Edge will costs you about $100 more than the regular Galaxy S6. This difference is probably to recoup production costs. if you’re looking for something more stylish, the Galaxy S6 edge is a great choice. However, if you simply want a new smartphone, then go for the Galaxy S6.


Other than that, both devices are mostly the same in terms of specs and the experience from both devices is excellent. Whichever you choose, you’re getting one of the best Android experiences around.

Old battles are set to reignite in the first qualifier at the Wankhede Stadium © BCCI
In Indian Premier League’s (IPL) short eight-year history, no matchup attracts the same billing as a clash between perennial heavyweights Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI). Two passionate cricket metropolises, superstar cricketers and seven domestic T20 titles between them (CSK 4 – 3 MI) is a sure shot recipe for a marquee clash.A lot has changed since Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith bulldozed MI early in the season, forcing Rohit Sharma to bemoan his team’s attitude. While CSK strutted to the playoffs for the eighth successive season on the back of sheer consistency, MI scratched around, huffed and puffed before eventually rediscovering their mojo to qualify second.

A defeat in the first qualifier is not the end of the road but both sides realize the benefits of a win besides the all-important place in the final – One match lesser, extra days of rest and lesser travelling – vital in a tournament as stretched out as this one. MI versus CSK is the most evenly contested rivalry with their past 22 meetings split 11-11. In IPL 2015 too, the teams split the league fixtures, with each winning at the other’s home.

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
Date: May 19, 2015
Time: 20:00 IST
Weather: Mostly warm with a high of 33 degree Celsius and a 10% chance of rain.

Team News:

Chennai Super Kings

CSK’s ploy of giving Michael Hussey a game before the play-offs failed to serve the purpose after the Western Australian was dismissed in the first over against KXIP. He will, however, hold on to his spot in the clash along with Dwayne Smith, who will return to the opening slot vacated by Brendon McCullum’s departure. The team will take a call between the steady Ishwar Pandey (11 wickets at 7.19 RPO) and Mohit Sharma (11 wickets at 8.43 RPO) for the medium pacer’s slot.

Probable XI: Michael Hussey, Dwayne Smith, Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis, MS Dhoni (c&wk), Dwayne Bravo, Pawan Negi, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishwar Pandey/Mohit Sharma, Ashish Nehra

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians have a quick turnaround from their final league game in Hyderabad and the physios will be working overtime to ensure none pull up sore on the morning of the clash. Thankfully for them, they play the crucial qualifier at the Wankhede stadium where they hold a 4-2 advantage over CSK in all IPL. They are unlikely to make any changes to the side that has served them well in the second half of the season.

Probable XI: Parthiv Patel (wk), Lendl Simmons, Rohit Sharma (c), Ambati Rayudu, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Jagdeesha Suchith, Mitchell McClenaghan, Vinay Kumar, Lasith Malinga

Stats and Trivia:

Suresh Raina leads the batting chart for most number of runs in MI-CSK clashes (557 runs at 34.89 and SR of 149.33)

– CSK hold a 4-1 edge over Mumbai in IPL play-off/knockout matches between the teams

– As many as 5 players who’ve played for both teams in the rivalry will feature in this game – Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith, Michael Hussey, Ashish Nehra and Parthiv Patel


We have made it quite simple, we adapt, we improve and keep the core of the team same.
