HOLLYOAKS Asian family to wave adios
Three characters of the first Asian family to feature of Channel 4's daily show HOLLYOAKS are set to leave. Actors Junade Khan (Ash), Anthony Bunsee (Gov) and Nila Aalia (Bel) who form half of the Roy family will depart from the soap in September when the family's storyline reaches a dramatic conclusion. In recent weeks, Ash has been encouraging his brother Ravi (Stephen Uppal) to take part in illegal street fights, while completely unaware that his sibling has a brain aneurism. Ravi, Leila (Lena Kaur) and Anita (Saira Choudhry) will remain on the shows.

Kieron Richardson relaxes after HOLLYOAKS plot
HOLLYOAKS' Kieron Richardson has revealed that he's looking forward to getting some rest. The 23-year-old actor, who plays Ste Hay, admits that his working schedule has been "non-stop" since the beginning of the storyline in which conniving couple Abi (Elaine Glover) and Daniel Raven (Chris Hargreaves) try to snatch his baby.

"Filming-wise, the storyline is coming to an end now so it's been good to have a few more lie-ins in the morning," he admits. "I live with Elaine and we've been rehearsing at night-time and then getting up a six in the morning, working until seven at night, going home and learning more lines before having a quick tea and going straight to bed."

App stores are not the future, says Google
Apple customers may have downloaded 1.5bn applications from its AppStore in the past year for their iPhones and iPod touches, but the service does not represent the future for the mobile industry, according to Google.

Vic Gundotra, Google Engineering vice president and developer evangelist, (pictured centre) told the Mobilebeat conference in San Francisco on Thursday that the web had won and users of mobile phones would get their information and entertainment from browsers in future.

The Big, Awkward Problem of YouTube Fees
YouTube has become our national trove of free video, a place where a company can find a free platform for video marketing junk and individuals can watch dogs sleepwalk. But as we've discussed before, the Web's video giant costs Google an unsustainable amount of money each year, regardless of the paltry revenue the site has earned from advertising. So the conversation continues: how does Google make YouTube profitable without killing the service we know and love?
