Oh, the wonderful conclusions the false dichotomy fallacy can take you. You can't trust the AP, therefore you CAN trust Wikileaks.
There's a word for having no inclination to respect the rights of others. It's called sociopathy. Psychologists coined that term because they needed something that sounds more scientific than "evil".
it already has a mortal enemy that is right WINTER IS COMING! Let me tell you about a little place I like to call: the southern hemisphere.
Down here in New Orleans, its so damned hot, all you can do to avoid heat stroke and play is to roll about in your car and play with the AC on high.
Down here, the AC in my house doesn't usually cut off from about April till November. I'm looking forward to cooler weather starting to hit in the next couple months.
I guess there's a lot of people up in the Northeast of the US that think they are the only folks on the face of the earth that matter.
Can't find electric pokemon for the life of me. Or fire.
At little harder to find, but I have in City Park, and out in Kenner near the Treasure Chest casino....that whole area is LOADED with stuff.
Captain Obvious Competition.
These companies already have your money, so updating a device that's already been sold is a needless expense. There's also a good argument to be made that updating a device hurts future sales. If your phone isn't updated, it will start to feel old, so you're more likely to buy a new phone sooner.
Yes. I have a high-end preamp-processor, updatable over the net. Plenty of bugs. Did they ever fix them, much less add new features? No. Did they release a new model? Yes. I have a high-end camera. Updatable over the net. Plenty of bugs. Did they ever fix them, much less add new features? No. Did they release a new model? Yes. I have a high-end radio transceiver. Updatable over the net. Plenty of bugs. Did they ever fix them, much less add new features? No. Did they release a new model? Yes. And so on.
The whole "we can update your device" bit is a scam (and often, so is the "we can update your software" bit.) The only way a corporation is likely to actually update hardware responsibly is if legislation forces them to. And good luck trying to get THAT in place when corporations outright buy the decisions of the legislatures.
Charge for the non-security feature updates -- maybe even do it through the app store. Customers have to pay for updates one way or the other, so you should be able to sell a competitively priced phone and then make just as much money selling fewer physical phones and more software updates as you would under the status quo. That'd be good for the environment too.
The one sticking point is, as always, the carriers. They'd much rather you trade in your perfectly good phone for another one whose price is rolled into a contract extension. I'm convinced that Verizon on several occasions deliberately botched upgrades to force you to buy a new phone with more RAM.
The game is a massive tredmill. There is no way that someone with little time can be competative except for bots. Unless you live in NYC or someplace similar you can't get enough pokeballs to play without paying a fortune buying them from the store.
Man, in New Orleans, and the suburbs there are Pokestops every other block, often multiple ones right beside each other...easy to get stocked up on poke balls and such.
The other night, I had to keep throwing stuff out of my 'bag' to make room for more things I wanted.
Sure, the only really unpredictable aspect of this scenario is the size of the peak. If their business plans were predicated on maintaining usage near the initial peak indefinitely, then they were stupid plans.
I'm guessing that the plans for this product aren't that stupid. In that case a sensible goal will be to maintain a modest but loyal group of regular users and to periodically introduce new features that will entice usage jags out of occasional players.
High abundance of water pokemon?
Absolutely!!! TONS of them, especially if near Lake Pontchartrain....
It's not mispronounced; the first screenshot in this article shows that the menu item (third from the left) is in fact spelled "manbang" and pronounced (using X-SAMPA) as
...Is it possible you're salty because someone forgot to invite you to participate in Manbang?
There is hardly a thing in the world that some man can not make a little worse and sell a little cheaper.
