The only solution to this conundrum I have come up with is do our typical Indian entrance exam cracking. Search th net for a question bank, prepare answers for all the questions, memorize them.

Why memorize, because one probably has to cycle 10 odd scenarios to fit 100+ question

I read "interview tips" on handling behavioural questions and often times it's really hard to find a single instance for some of the situations.

And in some instances, the customers were handled at PM level that I have no idea what happened.

Amazon is big on behavioural questions in their interviews and quite a few companies are doing it too. So if you have never worked in a customer facing role or had a bad leadership who dealt with situations poorly, it's going to be hard clearing those interviews.

Sourcing for ideas for a Free and Open Source Software Hackathon.

If there is something that you think should be Open Source, kindly comment. I will try my best.

Don't think alternate stores are a solution. I was just applying the real world abstraction of stores and choice. But Samsung, Mi etc.., sell phones with their own stores. I don't think anyone actually uses them. Play Store still is the go-to place. Not sure what the alternate is

Not sure how the Fortnite vs Apple & Google battle will go. But if it ends up with alternate stores becoming part of the ecosystem, it will be good in the long run.

When looking for talent, I hope they keep the expectations realistic.
