Why is it so that my 8GB ROM Android smart-phone has only 4GB available internal space? - Quora

The ROM is partitioned with different size allocation for different purposes like:-
  1. 2–3 GB for you OS as read only partition.
  2. Then you have caches
  3. Internal storage, where you normally store your files.
You can't change the allocations normally, but after gaining root access you can change them.

Fractal marketing

Fractal marketing
is the process by which a product or service is promoted through modern electronic media and is subsequently picked up and scattered bypotential consumers.

Whereas viral marketing presupposes that a consumer is infected with the intended message, fractal marketing reflects that the consumer modifies the message: it's still part of the snowflake's pattern, just a unique piece of it.
 
An example of fractal marketing would be Apple's Switch campaign of 2002 and Ellen Feiss's subsequently marketed web identity. They are affiliated, they are part of the same pattern, but this outcome could not be predicted by Apple.




Salami slicing - Wikipedia

Salami slicing refers to a series of many small actions, often
performed by clandestine means, that as an accumulated whole produces a
much larger action or result that would be difficult or unlawful to
perform all at once. The term is typically used pejoratively.
Although salami slicing is often used to carry out illegal activities,
it is only a strategy for gaining an advantage over time by
accumulating it in small increments, so it can be used in legal ways as
well.



An example of salami slicing, also known as penny shaving, is the fraudulent practice of stealing money repeatedly in extremely small quantities, usually by taking advantage of rounding
to the nearest cent (or other monetary unit) in financial transactions.
It would be done by always rounding down, and putting the fractions of
a cent into another account. The idea is to make the change small
enough that any single transaction will go undetected
