I like the thing that makes the pokemons come to me, so I don't have to walk around.

This is exactly what's going to make this "game" die just as quickly and then China will have to resort to something else to gain picture/video intelligence from us.

China?

Google owns the company that developed the game. Try CIA/FBI.

I dislike when people just say "China" could or could not do something. China the country itself is not hacking other states. Chinese citizens are the ones doing it. Some at the behest of the Chinese government, some for Chinese corporations, and then some for ***** and giggles. There will be a wide variety of skill levels. At the end of the day I have no doubt that the best of the best in China are very capable of infiltrating just about any network in America. That though is based on having enough time and resources to get it done. So while some Chinese hackers were not able to get into your contractors network, it does me others could also not get in.

Now saying all that. Google is really who is collecting all your info while you play.

China is a single, monolithic entity, not a collection of various states and cities each with its own local government and populace. It is capable of making decisions, but can only approximate human emotions. China cannot properly digest and metabolize chocolate.




Still waiting for the Pokémon Go update that lets you capture strangers' pets.

Just got a memo from the security department at work. They want our security personnel to patrol the campus and ask pokemon players to leave unless they have business on the campus. It's a hospital. The very same day the PR department put out a puff piece about how pokemon go is likely good for you.

I understand the reasons why we might not want kids (or adults) hanging out in parking lots and around traffic where they could get hurt, but we never bothered before unless they were doing something dangerous (like skateboarding for example).

I want to tell the security director to "lighten up Francis!" but I don't think that would be good for my career.

Wait a minute, why would a hospital not want people to practice dangerous activities on it's properties? Sounds like easy money to me.

I am imagining now an accounting head telling security to put oil on rails to make them extra slick and throw pebbles in areas where people skateboard. All in an evil plan to charge them tons when they get injured.

As long as the sign clearly says "no skateboarding".

We have designated paths for people to walk around the campus. We allow people to walk, run, bike, whatever with no problem. I can understand their concerns, but we are very close to being a public place. I just think they are over-reacting.
