3. There are actually two networks, sending identical data for redundancy. Now guess what happens if one of the networks sends different data than the other? Right: The offending port / device gets shut down.

If there are only two networks, how do you know which one is sending the wrong data?

Actually what will happens is that some users will use a cracked version as some sort of trial and then buy the real version if they are satisfied with the program. This is what I have sometimes done when the software doesn't have any trial versions available to test. But if you have quiet crashes, corruption or weirdness in your program the users will think that your program is just really crappy, stop using it and never buy it.

My experience is completely different. I have Google Nexus 10, Samsung S4 and some other phones running Android. On each and every one they are slow as hell, just swiping between screens is really slow sometimes and the core UI is unresponsive lot of times. Of course I am a power user and have a lot of apps installed but that shouldn't affect the Android OS and the UI response unless of course the Android OS is buggy.

Anything that does not run Android. Google unfortunately is focusing on fancy look but doesn't care about all the myriads of core bugs that are present in the system. Google is also removing critical core functionality in every new release of Android. Android used to be very good in 2010 but each new version becomes slower and slower and unusable.

Not specially in 5.1 but in all versions. What has been removed/disabled:
- Ability to control Airplane mode programmatically
- Ability to control Data mode programmatically
- Ability to control interruption/silent mode programmatically
- Ability to control system volume programmatically
- No control of how lock screen icon appear programmatically
- No write access to SD card from apps

These are just the ones from the top of my head.

For goods sake stop removing features and disabling stuff. There is no point in having an app platform when the apps can do less and less with every new release because you just removed important features from the system.

Android uses to be great when it was in version 2.1 or something, but now every new version gets worse and worse and more bugs are introduced and more stuff breaks.

Well maybe people would upgrade if every new version wasn't slower than the previous version and Chrome wouldn't get buggier and buggier.

Google for goods sake fix all the bugs before pushing out new versions with even more bugs. Do some QA testing for heavens sake, I mean you have the resources. Don't be evil.
