comment How to come from 二百五 to 二百九?
What does 二百九 stand for? And why do you need to perform arithmetic to a slang in the first place? Your edit doesn't make this question any clearer.

comment What are the translations of these IT-related terms: app, service, consulting?
@deutschZuid, 移动 is for mobile, 软件 is for software, 应用 is for application and 程序 is for program. So, 移动软件应用程序 means mobile software application program.

comment Why is 汉子 measured in 条?
I don't think measure words convey respect or disrespect. 个 and 只 can also be used on 走狗 and 豺狼. See also this question. 条 is used as a measure word for anything elongated in shape. I guess that includes humans as well :)
