    Over the holidays, I wrote a small windows mobile app that would let me listen to one of the Bollywood radio stations on my phone. It’s very handy to use voice command to start the app and have it play desi melodies as I set out for a long drive over the weekends. Ever since I wrote it, I wondered why...
