  1. It’s actually a great piece but like Chinese manufacturers, I am afraid that Yandex may also be stylishly stealing information about users habits, only to sell such information to third party

  2. Yandex is going to the next level, a good company will always want to cash in the trends and that what yandex is trying to do imagine the whole Russia and other surrounding country embrace it, then it will be a big hit for them.
