DANA LA VOIX
Even though she may be
next after sister Nigaar
was recently married,
Gauahar Khan says that
there is no pressure to be.
The model-turned actress
also said that her family
is fine with that, and that
she is in a good place
career-wise and that "the
only thing that is on her
mind is to work hard and take up exciting projects".
That may be disappointing to her beau...if she had
any, it does not look like anyone is even in her
sights right now!
"Marriage with whom? There has to be someone,"
says a quote from Indian Express who caught-up
with the always stylish beauty at Lakme Fashion
Week in India a few days ago. Gauahar s last rela-
tionship was a short one with her "Big-Boss" co-
contestant and TV actor Kushal Tandon, which ended
And when she eventually gets married, do you
think we ll see her working with her husband?
Maybe, we ve seen real-life couples act opposite
Starting in September, the Google Chrome Web
browser will no longer automatically show Adobe
Flash advertisements, the search giant announced
Chrome is the second most popular browser for
desktop and laptop computers, with about 28 per
cent market share, behind only Microsoft Internet
Explorer, according to NetMarketShare.
The change, first announced in June, is just Google s
latest attack against Adobe Flash. Flash had been
the standard for interactive Web content since it was
introduced in the early 2000s. But there has been
a huge industry pushback in the last few years, mainly
from Apple---which never supported Flash on the
iPhone or iPad---and more recently Google.
In large part because of Apple and Google s resist-
ance, Flash never really caught on with mobile devices,
but it s still alive and well on the desktop and is par-
ticularly used by advertisers.
Why the hatred? Because Flash has been found
to hurt battery life and computing performance, and
security researchers have found vulnerabilities and
flaws that can compromise a user s computer.
Even Facebook acknowledged its dependence on
Flash as a risk in its last earnings filing, writing that
"In July 2015, certain vulnerabilities discovered in
Flash led to temporary interruption of support for
Flash by popular Web browsers. If similar interruptions
occur in the future and disrupt our ability to provide
social games to some or all of our users, our ability
to generate Payments revenue would be harmed."
Instead of Flash, Google would rather advertisers
make their campaigns in HTML5, an emerging set
of standards that has won a ton of industry support.
Where Flash is slow and doesn t run well on mobile,
HTML5 is faster and works on just about everything
with a Web browser without the same impact on
To that end, Google is offering a bunch of tools
for advertisers to translate their ads from Flash to
HTML5, plus even more options for making new ads
in the HTML5 standard. Otherwise, if you want to
stick with Flash, you re going to have to trust that
a user will manually click on your ad to get it to play,
which is a sucker s bet and a waste of your ad dollars.
each other and it was magical, but that
does not seem to be the case with Saif Ali
Khan and his gorgeous wife Kareena Kapoor.
It seems that separately they have their
appeal to the masses, but together, at the
box-office? It s a fail.
When asked why that is, Saif was quoted
as saying: "Some people just have a great
chemistry onscreen while some don t.
Maybe it is in the script. Also the kind of
films we did were ill-fated and they were
slightly ill-conceived. There are many things
that go into it. I think it is a shame because
she is a lovely actress and I would love to
work with her."
Hmmm, tricky. Apparently he also went
on to say that husbands "are better off
acting with actresses other than their spous-
es".Well, we can t say we agree, or disagree
with that statement, but, sometimes things
don t sync in our professional lives as they
may in our personal, and we hope that does
not rule-out future co-starring roles for
the two. Perhaps a skillful director or pro-
ducer will see this edition of #BollyTalks
and take this up as a challenge! Karan Johar?
Sanjay Leela Bhansali...anyone?
