Please help me in my struggle with AsusTEK by signing this petition

This is a very common scenario: Manufacturer creates a tablet, releases it in the market, but then shies away from providing support or even fixing any issues by providing an OTA update.

I'm suffering from one such issue (the last lollipop OTA upgrade in my Asus Fonepad ME175CG broke after which tablet drains the entire battery in just a couple of hours). Its not just me, but everyone who have bought this tablet and made the OTA upgrade is suffering from the same fate:

http://www.asus.com/zentalk/in/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=59750

The most troublesome aspect of this is that the OEM stopped giving new updates just after this last buggy OTA update.

Of course, like most of you people, I may have to forget about it and keep saying, "OEMs can do whatever they want", but that isn't going to stop me from trying. Call me a socialist or SJW, but the least I want to do is make sure that OEMs think twice before giving out a half-baked OTA update that breaks an existing working device. And I believe that it can happen if enough people will sign this petition:

https://www.change.org/p/asustek-please-fix-the-battery-drain-issue-in-your-latest-ota-update-v6-3-9-for-fonepad-me175cg?recruiter=337404987&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=share_email_responsive
After getting latest version 6.3.9 my tablet started losing signal frequently... Every 10-15 minutes it prompt to select sim1 network...Also tried to clean catch and done factory reset.. Attached battery used status...More power is consumed by telephony services...

How long does it take for your small business to start making a profit?

In a perfectly competitive economy or business, there are very few opportunities to maximize profits by increasing revenue. Trying to ask a higher price is going to make your client go to the guy next door, and as for increasing sales, there is only so much you can do when the market is saturated with competition.

That leaves only one option for increasing profits and survive - control/curb your COSTS. Evaluate each and every aspect of your business: How much do you spend on stationary, salaries and wages, outsourcing, software, etc. You can use all your creativity here to make a difference.

For example, are you using open source software like linux and LibreOffice instead of incurring the cost of Microsoft licenses? I know you'll say its a very small amount, but when you start scaling your business, every dollar saved is every dollar earned.

Besides, there are other areas of budgeting too: Are you using a subscription-based service on the cloud like SalesForce/Quickbooks for accounting and CRM? Again, using in-house FOSS technologies like Magento/SugarCRM/Drupal/etc. can buy your business a life!

+Prahlad Yeri Absolutely. I started selling on Fiverr a few years ago and was very worried about the competition. But by delivering a superior product to my competition I rose above them overall.

Can Google or Facebook ever have a true competitor?

I'm not talking about competition like DuckDuckGo or Bing. They might be good search engines, they might even write better search algorithms. Lets also assume that they achieved massive amounts of computational capability and data storage as that of Google, but they will never get the prime mover advantage that Google has, because you and me have already decided that whenever we want to search something, we will just visit Google.com. It has been this way since last two decades, but is it going to be the same always? If not, then what will cause us to move to a different search engine?

The same could be said about Facebook in the field of social-networking. It is the major giant network commanding around 70% of all online visitors. Most people will never leave FB because their friends are already on FB. Lets assume that a company XYZ creates a site which has a lot more features than FB, but people will still say, "Hey, my friends are already on FB, so I have to be on FB". Isn't this sort of unfair for that new entrant XYZ? What can XYZ make to cause people to leave FB and come to its network?

The only way to overcome such competition is to speed up competitor product/service obsolescence by introducing a product/service that can do similar functions, offer benefits way better than current one plus more.

For instance when Sony Walkman was a big hit from 1979-till 90's, just like the word "google" is synonymous with search, "Walkman" word became synonymous with that kind of device.

Sony was "The Brand" when it came to that particular device, like Google is "The Brand" when it comes to search engines.

People thought overcoming "walkman" was impossible, though few succeeded later on, but that happened way later.

And Apple, Samsung plus MP3's players prior to these brands rapidly brought "walkman" obsolescence and so now its just a nostalgic device for people who want to taste the past.

In other words its a dead product that once was considered to be "The Brand".

That's my 20 cents, let me know...
