    And now Pokemon Go is available in Canada.

    Let see, can't play it on my old phone. Android 2.2
    Can't play it on my new phone. No magnetic sensor, boo!
    Can play it on my tablet. Which has no phone connection. So wifi is good enough. (If I wanted to play, use my new phone as an access point for the tablet.)

    Gee, I hope their game communication is secured against man-in-the-middle attacks, because it would tempting to park a Raspberry Pi 3 in the middle and see what's going on, and then take it on the road.

    Being able to fuck with the virtual view of players who trust free wifi would be fun.

    So someone said since you can see where people are playing from that it may be a privacy issue for children?
    Pedo concern?

    Please tell them we want to screen grabs. And better yet, GO put a lure and/or gym on the Lisa McPherson brick!

    There is no way to tell how old a person actually is, right?
    Valid concerns are valid.

    Predator checklist:
    1. Locate a Pokestop, Pokegym, Poke-thing close to a residential area but away from usual observation.
    2. Find a hidden spot to wait while keeping the Poke-place under watch and wait for prey. (Turn off phone.)
    3. Bring Free Candy.
    4. Seem legit.
    Similar list for muggers and rapists too. Whoever comes to the watering-hole Poke-spot can afford a nice smart phone, and is distracted. (Downside: They have a phone and could dial 9-1-1.)

    That ain't good. Bad PR, chaos, the pokeification and distraction, downfall of society. :O (can you imagine a pile-up on the highway resulting from this?)

    What they really need is a Predator Go app.

    Take all the local sexual predator lists, with photos and addresses and plug them into a big database. Have Flash Card type drills on "Who's That Predator?" as well as put virtual Danger markers on where they live.

    Never mind the horrible consequences that could and would happen...

    Other lists too. "Registered Republican, I choose you!"

    Come to think about it, there's the people who took leaks or did stupid innocent things when intoxicated that ended up on the RSO's list for a short 8 years time. They'd be in danger.
  26. DeathHamster Member

    A Poke-zombie just wandered down my street. There are so many obvious tells when someone is playing vs "normal" texting and whatnot.
  27. DeathHamster Member

    Oh yes! If there's an app like that (very technically possible), sooner or later some nutcase is going to go hunting Predamon.

    Welcome to augmented hell.

    None in my neighbourhood. Guess the youth have better things to do than be on a device all day.

    If they are saying it is unsafe for some kids due to pedos...
    then can't this game also be used to trap pedos?

    I also heard that people are setting up places for people to meet and they they are getting robbed.

    Those Godless damn lures I tell you! Some (which I heard, but might not be accurate) was setup on the tracks of the railways in canada, and on the subway tracks, due to a GPS mapping from above, which appeared right in the middle of the road where no crossings exist. Some on stairways, escalators and elevators.

    Probably an electric-type Pokemon. At least with subway stations, they probably won't get a GPS signal.

    It sounds like they have really shitty security with unencrypted communications.

    Without that, a trojan wifi could supply a fake Pokemon list to anyone connected. (Gimmick the Domain Name Server to route that URL to your own server.) What then? Would their app think those Pokemon were "real" and allow you capture them? (If so, what would happen when you exited the trojan wifi and reconnected to the real server?)

    There could be a profitable black market in supplying rare Pokemon.

    What do you mean? Is that got anything to do with Pokemon go?
