A journey to Canada

//Warning. Very big post.

Chapter 1

I started from home, not sure if I was ready to begin a new life. I sat in the car, and couldn’t still believe people were coming to drop me in two cars because one was not enough. On the way, everything that I saw suddenly seemed close to my heart. The noodles shop near the gate of my building, whose noodles I praised a lot every time I ate it.

Apple App store vs. Google Play store: An in-detail review

A very huge article. Please bear with me. I’m not sure if I should even call this a review,  but you can read on. It’s very informative!

The roots of the battle

The whole thing started when Apple launched its App store back in 2008, which took the mobile app world by storm. It was the first time third-party applications were given such a large platform on the mobile, and something which turned the consumer’s focus from hardware and in-built software to third-party apps availability, since that was the future.
