Well should it be applying such a filter on progress?

I opine that assessment should be on merit and that new ideas should be considered on an even-handed basis. Progress should not be on the basis of what major vendors choose to do. Requiring commitments from major vendors could be a barrier to new enterprises developing and a barrier to progress for the benefit of consumers being made.

What does 1B DAUs mean please?
