The said study has been conducted in the wake of increasing criticism that the bank is following an anti-inflationary monetary policy which in turn is hindering growth.</p> <p>As a policy matter, the RBI the RBI has attempted to rein in inflation since July 2011.

You may want to retire at 60, while your best friend thinks of it at age 45. </p> <p>Well, it is entirely up to you! Consider the following factors while settling on a number: </p> <p>1. What you plan to do after retirement: Whether you indulge in a hobby, social service or any other activity that will give you enough income for sustenance. </p> <p>2. Long term plans: Nursing any long cherished dream like traveling to an exotic place, owning a Ferrari or anything like that?

Why not just make apps only for Android?</p> <p>When Google Maps app came out recently for the new iPhone 5, it quickly became the most downloaded app in a matter of days. Of course, one of the most important reasons for its popularity was that Apple Maps had gotten pretty bad publicity.</p> <p><strong>Google Maps superior to Apple Maps</strong><br /> According to an estimate, Google Maps for the iPhone was downloaded more than 10 million times in the 48 hours after its release last December. Apple Maps had proven to be quite unreliable in many instances, so much so that the Australian police dubbed it as unsafe and warned people not to depend on it.</p> <p>Google Maps is not the only popular app Google has released for the iPhone. It has also done a lot of work in coming out with a YouTube app, and a Chrome browser for the iOS platform.</p> <p>Most people invariably consider Android and Apple smartphones when they are about to purchase a new smartphone.</p> <p><strong>iPhone users are potential customers</strong><br /> If iPhone users happen to use a plethora of Google apps, it is actually a boon for Google. There is always a chance that the same users might consider switching to the Android platform for a richer and smoother experience.</p> <p>Indeed, many iPhone users prefer certain Google apps over the ones made by Apple. Google Maps and the Chrome browser are excellent examples. Besides, any smartphone not having a YouTube app would quickly become boring.</p> <p>Another key benefit that Google gets is that it is able to get tons of data from iPhone users which help the search giant to improve its services and products.

Warning: trigger_error(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/themoney/public_html/includes/database.mysql.inc on line 135
