    iPhone app Pokémon Go

    Cvb0JsO - Pokémon Go

    I arsed about yesterday making a new iTunes account so I could download this, but I think it's available in the UK now anyway.

    I don't know what it's really all about, and it seems a bit shitty really.

    Pokémon GO - Niantic, Inc.

    I'm not interested in it myself, but no doubt it means that we will be even more likely to be knocked over by twats walking along gazing at their phones instead of paying attention to what's around them. I get that it "gets people outside", but it hasn't required a game on a mobile phone to enable people to do that in the past.

    I would say though, that it is a fascinating idea. Augmented reality has been around for a while but it's use has been largely restricted to apps to find restaurants and stuff. This is a very imaginative way to use it. It'll be yesterday's thing in a few weeks time though.

    Once they've got everyone hooked they'll start charging a fortune for it.

    Did I ever tell you about those two old dears I overheard in the bank? They were mother & daughter and aged about 70 and 90. The mum got her bank statement and was shocked to find she was Ł100's in debt and was convinced she'd been hacked by a fraudster. Turns out the youngest (the daughter) had got addicted to online games and used her mum's bank account to buy special powers and stuff for this game she was addicted to at about 79p a shot. She'd made that many purchases the statement was about 12 pages long.
