In the wake of such developments, most investors who were looking to bet on homegrown short-video apps which have proliferated in the past one month may hold out before there is further clarity. Things have been changing every few days. “There is an opportunity to capitalise on the short-video-sharing market but for creating a better product than TikTok instead of a TikTok clone,” said Rutvik Doshi, managing director at Inventus Capital Partners. “Money will continue to flow into this space as some investors would want to take a bet depending on their risk capital.

Seagate expandable storageThe Xbox Series X Seagate expansion card looks like a cross between an external hard drive and USB thumb drive, and it’s designed to be plugged directly into the proprietary port on the back of the Xbox Series X console.
