Is Google's Android so much more popular than Apple's iOS? [COMPACTIDEA]

Looking at only the difference between the number of ratings/reviews of this app shows a clear difference - Android is at least 186 times more popular than iOS [forget everything else]. This is a staggering difference and it isn't good at all. Google having a near-monopoly on mobile operating systems is not and cannot be good for anyone except Google and CIA/NSA.

Examples of violations of net neutrality in India and abroad [COMPACTIDEA]

Airtel won't charge users any data for uploading content to its backup service.

Update [11-Sep-18]: It might seem/sound ludicrous at first, but if you think carefully about it, the way content delivery networks [CDNs] are used currently constitutes a violation of net neutrality. Not because they enable faster delivery of content, but because they enable faster delivery of only those services/websites which have the ability to pay to get on these faster lanes. Smaller outlets can't afford these high-speed lanes and have to provide a relatively inferior experience to their users. If these CDNs were speeding-up all content irrespective of its origin/source, then we could say that CDNs don't cause any violation of net neutrality.

There are idiots who go crazy over the closing of the financial year, 31st March [COMPACTIDEA]

Happens every year. I've seen it every time. These idiots go mad, as if resetting ledger balances to zero is a must at the end of a financial year [it isn't]. They'll call you repeatedly as if a mountain will break if we don't give/take cheques to reset the ledger balances. They'll send a small NEFT of INR ~5K-6K and then call you 10 times to confirm if you received it. Losers. Total losers. With no sense of accounting and more importantly no grand vision. Tied up in petty, meaningless issues. Will stay tied up in such nonsense shit throughout their worthless lives, devoid of any creation, innovation or deep thought.
