Instant-Messaging App Whatsapp’s revenue system has never been well defined, however, after Facebook acquired the application for a whopping $19 Billion, it’s making sure the app can start generating revenue. In last year’s Facebook conference, Company chief, Mark Zuckerberg mentioned that through WhatsApp, companies will be able to interact with their desired customer in a very personal and direct way. The feature is in a testing stage right now.
According to a report by Reuters, there is no official announcement about the tests, but the feature is being used by business ventures like Y Combinator, a United States-based seed accelerator, which helps promising young tech firms grow rapidly.
This might mean Facebook-owned-Whatsapp might roll-out a commercial messaging this year for businesses as it looks to tap into enterprises for monetising its platform.
The business model has previously been put to use on Facebook’s Messenger. The user can not only interact with various businesses but also complete the payment with the application. The same monetising model might come into play with WhatsApp as well.
The Galaxy S8 is nearly here and while Samsung is determined to keep the radically redesigned handset a secret, the biggest leak yet has just revealed almost every detail of the new smartphone and its larger sibling the Galaxy S8 Plus…
The news comes from none other than acclaimed KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, and this is something of a surprise given his reputation has been built specifically on his insider knowledge of Apple. That said Kuo has delivered a lorry load of information about Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones, both confirming existing rumours and delivering new information.
Exactly how the Galaxy S8 should look according to multiple sources in recent weeks. Image credit: Benjamin Geskin
Here’s a full breakdown of the report obtained by 9to5Google:
The Galaxy S8 will have a 5.8-inch display, 0.7-inches larger than the 5.1-inch Galaxy S7
The Galaxy S8 Plus will have a 6.2-inch display, also up 0.7-inches on the 5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge which it replaces
A change to wider aspect ratios means both phones will have increased resolutions of 2960 x 2400 pixels (WQHD+)
Both models will feature curved OLED displays for the first time
The physical home button is indeed being removed
A new iris recognition sensor will be part of six sensors along the top bezel of each new Galaxy: proximity, ambient light, iris, an IR-LED transmitter, front camera and receiver
On each phone at the back are four modules: camera flash (top left), heart rate sensor (bottom left), the main camera (middle) and fingerprint scanner (right – yes, stupidly right)
There will be seven colour options: gold, silver, bright black, matte black, blue, orchid and pink (availability by country remains unknown)
Both phones will have an increased 8MP front camera, but stick with a 12MP rear camera
A rear dual-camera setup was ditched with Samsung apparently citing both cost and “immature dual-camera ISP design”
USB 3.1 Type-C predictably replaces microUSB on both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus
A new PC Mode will be enabled when either phone is placed in a special dock (presumably an optional extra) and connected to a monitor or TV, this creates a desktop-like user environment
Models sold in the US, Japan and China will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset, models sold in Europe and the rest of Asia will have Samsung’s Exynos 8895
Korean and Chinese Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus models will have 6GB of RAM, but elsewhere the phones will only ship with 4GB – this may prove a sore point
The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will go on sale on April 21st, suggesting the recent shipping delay has been overcome
In addition Kuo expects a 6:4 shipment split in favour of the Galaxy S8 with 40-45 million handsets sold during 2017. This is slightly lower than the 52M Galaxy S7 units shipped in 2016, but Kuo says this is no reason for Samsung to be disappointed. Instead he points out Galaxy S7 shipments were unusually high due to the recalled Galaxy Note 7 which pushed potential Note customers back to this handset.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 will have minimal top and bottom bezels to fit a larger display into a compact chassis. Image credit: Benjamin Geskin
Holi, like Diwali, is a time for celebrations. But the festival of colours is more beloved — on screen and off it. However, of late, it has taken on a more subdued hue. Even the stars don’t celebrate it as grandly any more. Gone are the days when the Kapoors and the Ghais and the Bachchans would make Holi an event worth watching out for.
This year, I will be working on Holi, shooting for my film Munna Michael. In any case, I don’t play Holi as I don’t like playing it as it leads to wastage of water.
I am in London shooting for Mubarakan, but I anyway don’t play Holi. I used to play till I was 17-18 and then stopped as I became allergic to colours.
I play Holi, but this time I will miss it as I will be in Austria shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai.
This year, I am in London shooting for Mubarakan. I don’t play Holi as I don’t like wasting water. I don’t believe in the festival anymore as it just causes too much harm to dogs on the street, birds eat colour, so much water is required to even clean the organic colour! It doesn’t make sense.
I love playing Holi. And I play it every year. This year, I will play Holi just for some time. All my cousins come together and we enjoy, so that’s the plan.
This year I’ll be shooting for Shubh Mangal Saavdhan in Delhi. And I’m also shooting on Holi. It’s a bummer, but such is shoot life. Though the best part is my family will be joining me for a week’s time. We will do our bit of celebrating it in a small sweet way.
In Sri Lanka, there was no Holi. But I have been in India for a few years now. Unfortunately, on all the Holi days, I had been working. So I’ve only had a working Holi so far. Even this year, I will be working on Holi as I’m shooting for my next film, Drive.
Lately, I have been working on Holi, so I haven’t played it. I will be going to Shabana (Azmi) Masi’s house for Holi. I’ve missed it for two years now, because of work so I’m looking forward to it.
Away from home on Holi
Akshay will start shooting for his new film and he will be in Madhya Pradesh during holi.Anil Kapoor is in London shooting for his next film Mubarakan along with nephew Arjun Kapoor. And he will return only in April.

Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan are going to be parents again! The Facebook CEO shared the news on his official page on the popular social media site this morning.
“Priscilla and I are happy to share we’re expecting another baby girl!
After our difficult experience having Max, we weren’t sure what to expect or whether we’d be able to have another child. When Priscilla and I first found out she was pregnant again, our first hope was that the child would be healthy. My next hope was that it would be a girl. I cannot think of a greater gift than having a sister and I’m so happy Max and our new child will have each other,” Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page.
Zuckerberg’s wife experienced three miscarriages before the birth of baby Max, who is 15 months old now.
After the birth of Max in late November of 2015, Zuckerberg and his wife said they would give away 99 percent of their Facebook wealth in a philanthropy initiative “to improve the lives of all those coming into this world”.A charitable foundation backed by the couple early this year bought a Canadian artificial intelligence startup as part of a mission to eradicate disease.
