POKEMON ( POCKET MONSTER)

Postby brucebohn » Sun Jul 17, 2016 10:11 am

Another WTF moment....




If you're wondering what's going on here, you're not the only one. It seems the internet is flipping its collective lid over this app as the line between gaming and the real world gets blurrier. But perhaps all of this pales in comparison to the game's terms and conditions.

Firstly, the app requires an excessive amount of permissions on a user's device, including the ability to read your contacts, find accounts on your device, and access your camera. The app even requires full access to a user's Google account, which it can then use to read your emails, send emails from your account, browse your Google Drive documents and photos, etc. But apparently that's just "a mistake" and will be "corrected soon." Secondly, the game's privacy policy contains such gems as: "We may disclose any information about you (or your authorized child) that is in our possession or control to government or law enforcement officials or private parties."

But wait, it gets worse!

The maker of the app? Niantic Labs. Never heard of them? That's because until last year they were an internal start-up of none other than Google, the NSA-linked Big Brother company. Even now Google remains one of Niantic's major backers. Niantic was founded by John Hanke, who also founded Keyhole, Inc., the mapping company which was created with seed money from In-Q-Tel, the CIA's venture capital arm, and which was eventually rolled into Google Maps.

Feeling safe yet?

That's right, folks. The big, bad Big Brother Spies of the NSA and the DHS and the CIA don't really need their Patriot Act powers, after all. All they need to do is to create a fun, shiny trinket for the people to pay with and they will literally pay for their own surveillance, and even help the government to do it.

Welcome to the "Matrix Economy," where people pay to spy on themselves...and have fun doing it!

Huxley would be proud.

Yeah, that ^ idiot was doing that at 2:00am near Central Park. La-dee-da-dee-da, diversity is great, all is well....POW!

The version I originally saw had the full screen that he was filming of himself. So you saw his care-free expression and in the background you can see the spook creeping up on him before he punches him.
