Shaer Reaz | The Daily Star
  • Shaer Reaz

    Shaer started his writing career with The Rising Stars, the former youth magazine of The Daily Star. After joining full-time, this Dhaka University Economics major has been a crucial part of Shift, Bytes and Next-Step - the automotive, technology and career pages of the paper. When he isn't reviewing the latest cars to hit the local market or day-dreaming about the potential of 5G, he's usually seen staying back late at night, hammering out data visualisations for Star Weekend. Based on the number of screens and touch sensitive surfaces you can usually find around him, it's safe to say he welcomes the robots that will rule humanity in the future. In official capacity, however, Shaer currently serves as the Deputy Digital Editor of The Daily Star, digitally repackaging print stories, producing online exclusive news and features, data driven interactives and more.

  • BMW M Track Days 2019

    Through October 3rd to 7th, BMW owners and media personnel from around Asia were invited by BMW Group Asia to attend BMW M Track Days 2019 at Malaysia’s Sepang Formula 1 circuit. Over the course of four days, BMW owners and automotive journalists—typically used to street cars in their home countries—were treated to an experience worthy of the performance and prestige of BMW’s M Division and the ballistic missiles with tyres that are M cars.

    FIFA 20 – finally delivering on the “simulation” promise?

    Of all of Electronic Arts’ cash grab games (just being honest), FIFA is probably the only game that is seemingly untouchable and beyond reproach by fans and onlookers alike.
