Assuming the real reporting rate is 10 times higher, that is still a 1 in 100,000,000 chance of junk ad if you live in the US

The real rate of people being bothered by your ad is 1,000 - 10,000 times higher than what you're seeing. You think 10% of the people your ads irritate file a complaint? That's ridiculously optimistic.

I'll tell you this; you have far more people turned off by your ad than you have clickthroughs. It may still be justifiable from a business perspective, but don't lie to yourself about it.

Agreed. Every company I've ever worked for would hire a female programmer over an equally qualified male programmer. There's a clear imbalance, but it has nothing to do with hiring bias. If anything, the cause of the imbalance is set during childhood, perhaps in the womb.

I don't think it's the price. I think it the fault of shallow fashion. The push for the thinnest, most minimalist tablet possible, outweighs nearly everything else. If they doubled the thickness of an iPad, how much bigger battery could they fit? 4x? How much more durable would it be?

My tablet is big, clunky, but has both a micro and a full size USB port, along with the HDMI, microphone, power, and sd card, and I love it.
