How to Transfer Files from Macbook to OnePlus 5

I am writing this on the same day I received my brand new OnePlus 5. If you are reading this, chances are when you plugged in your OnePlus 5 using the USB cable to your laptop — be it a Macbook Air or Macbook Pro — nothing happened. Well, it does charge the phone but you probably expected to see a file folder appear on your desktop just like it does when you insert a USB drive. Turns out, that doesn’t happen.

Firstly, you need to change a setting on your phone to make it so that you can enable file transfer when you plug in your device via USB. If you do not get a prompt the first time you plug in your device via the USB cable, then follow the instructions as outlined in this video to find Developer Options under the System settings.

Double click this icon

Once you have done that, you will now see an icon appear that looks like a compact disc (CD). It will have some numbers underneath it. When you double click the disc icon, you will see a few files in a folder like the one below. But you will not be able to copy files into it.

Instead, double click on the AndroidFileTransfer(OSX).dmg and install the Android File Transfer software into your Applications folder (by dragging and dropping it). Once installed, open Android File Transfer and you should see the below screen…

… and the folder containing all the sub folders on your OnePlus 5 should appear in a window behind it.

Look familiar, right?

Now you can copy files into the respective folders!

The process also works on Windows laptops if the device does not show up as a USB device when plugged in.

This is how I copied over my mp3 collection into the Music folder of the OnePlus 5 and some of the photos I had taken on my previous phone.

Avantree Audition Pro Wireless Headphone Review: After using it for 3 months

I have been looking for a wireless headphone for quite some time. I got tired of my laptop getting dragged accidentally when my headphones were plugged in and I got tired of headphones slipping down. I didn’t want on-the-ear Bluetooth headphones, as they are aplenty. What I wanted were a good pair of over-the-ear headphones without spending upwards of Rs. 10,000 — preferably less than Rs. 5000.

I looked at the Sony MDR-XB650BT and the Sennheiser RS 120 II but digging around on, I came across a model call the Audition Pro from a brand called Avantree. Looking online, I found out it was a Chinese brand. Not too many reviews could be found on the Amazon India page but Amazon US had the same headphone listed. Much of the user reviews there seemed positive and that gave me the confidence to think about buying it. I checked YouTube, watched a few video reviews about it and felt that it met my requirements.

The Horlicks #Immunity4Health Indiblogger Meet in Bengaluru

Date: 8 May 2016

Time for another blogger’s meet organized by the fine folks at Indiblogger! This time it was hosted by Horlicks, at Taj Vivanta, near Trinity Circle. The theme was #Immunity4Health, part of their marketing pitch for the new Horlicks, now with twice the content of micro-nutrients. Today being Mother’s Day, Horlicks were especially honouring the efforts mothers play in raising children. So needless to say, there were no shortage of ‘mommy bloggers’ who also made their presence felt at this event.
