SITEX 2017 Day 4

It’s the final day of the event at Singapore Expo this year and needless to say, I discovered more stuffs there and bought something from that event. Various stuffs included the band and DJ performance taking place at the venue, karaoke booths, NES/Famicom clone booth and even the home theater venue from another brand.

About the band and DJ performance taking place there, the performance was bound to start sometime at night there and you need various knowledge if you wanted to register for it. Second is the karaoke booths which I forgot to blog about where you can buy the karaoke machine home. It’s not the laserdisc player that has the karaoke mode I’m referring to ever since I had ones in my childhood. Various laserdisc players have their internal karaoke scoring system while the external karaoke scoring addons are just the addons for the existing physical media players. These from this year’s SITEX event are more or less the home equivalent to Joysound public karaoke center. There’s the Joysound addon for game consoles but again, it’s just an external karaoke addon for an existing system. I don’t do the karaoke thing but it was an interesting discovery at the IT event. Next is the home theater booth from Devialet and I saw a giant turntable which is so suited for home entertainment in the living room although I don’t know if you can fit the existing vinyl records but as the purpose suggests, that turntable there wasn’t DJ-suited as it is quite large like a table with spinnable center.

Lastly is the NES/Famicom clone booth where I saw two consoles that looked like the NES Classic Edition and the Famicom with its cartridge slot but they were clones like always with the cartridges being the multi-game carts. Why would they get involved in IT events like this? This is some technology that could be suited in China or something and I already got my childhood wasted due to non-genuine systems and cartridges. I bet Nintendo won’t accept something like this. The PC-Engine and its games I had played in my childhood were genuine and so is the Game Boy Color that I have although the games I played on that console weren’t genuine as they were in the multi-game cart. Perhaps, I could have bought the NES Classic Edition if I wanted to but the problem is that I might end up leaving other games unplayed and it may be the same for SNES Classic Edition that recently came out this year. At least those systems are genuine, so are the games stored in them internally and the emulation is official and superior. The Famicom clone being shown at the booth had the higher sound pitch for some reason but its controllers had additional buttons for turbo-fire.

In the end, I bought the Sony-branded bluetooth speaker and the ASUS-branded gaming mechanical keyboard. Not to mention that I decided not to attend the discussion meeting today and the exploration took such a long time since the event is quite big. Even the PC Show event at Singapore Expo is said to be large as well like it takes two halls. Talk about a few hours taken in exploring the venue that the meeting already ended by then. The way the meeting starts and ends is some kind of chanting. Additional thing I saw from the Tech Career booth had the list of IT jobs like System Administrator, Network Engineer, IT Support Technican along with the company like OPUS which I recognized from Jobsbank or something.

Thankfully like a few years ago, I wasn’t asked to explain about why didn’t I attend those events I had been avoiding but to explain that I went elsewhere would open opportunities to some consequences like I would be held back a year or something for messing with the importance level as if those events were more important than the DJ lessons I had. However, all of these were just my imaginations.

One imaginary story is that you get approached and mailed by someone who dresses up as a magic teacher as part of his disguise and told to attend his events despite the fact that they are organized illegally in which you’ll think that nobody attends them. By avoiding his events, there will be consequences given but on the contrary, the consequences are false all along that you shouldn’t worry about in the first place. Even worse is that he has hijacked the school system of all magic academies in which all freshmen including you get chosen incorrect courses that many magic teachers from all magic academies will investigate the incident. And yet he denies all the bad things he’s done and claims that it’s for the sake of students’ graduation from the engineering field he’s heavily obsessed with through those events. Normally, there are no consequences for missing, failing to attend or avoiding academic events but he’s made things way too strict that he holds back those who don’t attend his events for a year or something. The controversy has been going on for several months but even if he’s charged by kingdom courts, it’s already wasted the long time of the victims’ in which the victims will finally get to study the ones they truly want based on various criteria.

For this year’s SITEX, it’s a different story. The discussion meeting wasn’t part of my main interest in the first place like it looked alienating to us and who the hell came up with the negotiation and idea to drag me into such nonsensical shit in the first place.

Superbeat XONIC for Switch

Originally, the game was released on Playstation Vita being getting the Playstation 4 and Xbox One releases. The Switch version is the next version to happen as this is the second portable console version next to the Playstation Vita version. It will have all the songs along with the songs that are previous DLCs for the previous console releases. One bonus celebration is that the new DLC-songs will be free for Switch users. The same DLC-songs will be available in Playstation 4 and Xbox One versions. I don’t know if the Playstation Vita version will have those DLCs as well.

Basically, the game originated from the arcades as Beatcraft Cyclon although the home console versions are closely based on the Playstation Vita release and even the Switch version will follow as well. It’s a similar story to how DJ Max Technika Q has similar rows of notes to DJ Max Technika Tune in which you get three rows of notes on each side instead of four rows as used in DJ Max Technika series in the arcades. Maybe the size of the device is more or less an important factor and it may be same for the upcoming Switch version of Superbeat XONIC.

The release date for the Switch version in the US will be sometime late this year although there was already a delay from the intended release date which was sometime a month ago.

Million Arthur Arcana Blood by Square Enix & Examu

As we probably know, Million Arthur Arcana Blood is more or less the forth game to come out on Nesica X Live 2 service in the arcades. It is the second major one besides King of Fighters XIV. There might be releases of other games on that service like Ultra Street Fighter IV and Blazblue Central Fiction but that doesn’t count as they were originally released on the previous-gen arcade system so to Playstation 4 and Xbox One, they are one-generation behind as if they can be ported to their predecessor consoles.

Originally, the Million Arthur series started off as the card battle game on mobile devices and the first one happened to be released outside Japan although the later ones had some Asian releases. The series is so popular that it has other media contents like the short-animated spinoffs which can be viewed on Square Enix’s official account or something and especially the upcoming spinoff arcade fighting game. Similar to Nitroplus Blasterz and Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, you can summon Knights through their corresponding commands in addition to using special and super moves belonging to the playable character. Some of the characters don’t have the actual names and are therefore, named as the type of Arthurs. You’ll rather want to go for the good type of Arthur although the Thief Arthur is somewhat one of the fan favorites.

There are several game modes so far like the Local Network Match, Online Match, Story Mode/Arcade Mode, Training Mode, Tutorial Mode and even the Friend Match which is something I don’t know of. And since this is the first arcade-exclusive on Nesica X Live 2, it can be more a challenge for players going for Single-Player modes. I don’t know if you’ll get interrupted by other players jumping in during those modes or not.

From what I saw from Baba Game Center Mikado’s official YouTube channel, the interface of Nesica X Live 2 game selection screen has some elements similar to the Steam game page. There may be videos and screenshots to preview of course. I’m not sure if Steam TV Mode or Steam OS has similar stuff like that like you can see videos and screenshots of whatever game you’re looking at. Right now, the game still has yet to be released and hence, the location test progress according to the latest update. Normally, during game location testing, the game is still in prototype form and video filming and phototaking of those games are not allowed. Not even video capture is also allowed as well but somehow, that arcade center has the rights to show the location test version in action. There are other gameplay videos of the game prior to the release date in Square Enix’s official YouTube channel. Even the opening video from that channel has a confirmation that Team Arcana of Examu is the actual developers of the game. Before that video existed, I already had a guess that Examu might have developed it with Square Enix being the publisher probably due to the fact that the game has the word, Arcana, in the game title and it’s a fighting game. Other fun facts included the assets and elements taken from other Examu games as well like Nitroplus Blasterz, Arcana Heart, etc.

The graphics are more or less better and on par with Arc System Works fighting games with 3D backgrounds and 2D sprites although the overall mixture makes them one generation behind like the game could have been suited for Playstation 3 and Vita releases. Blazblue Cross Tag Battle is also guilty of having previous generation era graphical assets but from the recent character reveal video from Arc System Works’ official YouTube channel, the Distortion Drive/Super background is changed. Like Arcana Heart 3 Love Max, pressing ABC activates something similar to Extend Force which changes background.

SITEX 2017 Day 3

This year, the event took place at Halls 7 & 8 of Singapore Expo which was kind of far away unlike the previous IT roadshows I attended there. The Daikin company seemed to be involved in the event with tons of new air-conditioners being shown there as seen in the commercial and they even had a truck parked near the event venue on the outside with electrical appliances hooked up. There were also cars inside the venue in one of the halls but that was beyond the scope and none of my interest to look at. Somehow, I had a some new recent gadgets for some reasons like a new phone, a new computer, etc. before the days of the big event.

Unfortunately, the following day after the day I attended is the discussion meeting stuff which is the odd stuff I blogged about the last time. Everything about it was unusual for me at first but I understood the reasons on why I got dragged into it nearly every month. So, it may basically clash with the SITEX event which would last until November 26. The third day of the event was the day I attended there but imagine that I register for Global Game Jam next year and all of the sudden, I get invited to this unusual shit again that clashes with it, that will probably mean that those troublemaking retards at home will know things about it as if they will try to stop me from attending it in the future.

Mining Rig

What the unusual looking computer does is to make use of multiple GPUs to generate passive income and provide a simple inroad into cryptocurrency. It’s basically making use of Bitcoin technology which is not regulated in Singapore according to MAS. MAS is the local agency that governs something financial. Those managing the rigs are being paid and the Mining Rig Club is so famous enough that they get interviewed on various newspapers and TV channels. I don’t know if this is a legal business or not as I’m not sure if they have the license to do this. Sure, they won’t get known by the government or something but…

Samsung Booth

There is a tour of various Samsung booths and at the end, you can complete a survey to win a Galaxy S8 phone or something but the thing is, I recently had the a new phone by the name of Galaxy A8 which is incompatible with some of the devices shown there like the VR and the Dex Station.

The Dex Station by Samsung is similar to Windows 10 Continuum feature and the one for Ubuntu phones. Obviously, it is suited for business even more but who’s going to use this kind of technology at work? Gaming-wise, those with simple controls are as compatible with Dex Station as the Android Set-Top-Boxes or Android TVs as you cannot use the keyboard with the device in Dex Station mode. Another interesting thing is the VDI in which you use Citrix, Amazon or VMWare cloud service. What this does is to stream whatever server that runs Windows Server containing Windows apps that can be run on your Android device via cloud. It’s basically RemoteApp on the cloud but you’re virtualizing the technology due to different architecture. It’s similar to using Remote Desktop apps on your Android/IOS device to connect to your computer remotely but that is the local scope and not the cloud scope. There might be a previous story about getting X86 apps to run on Windows 10 S devices thanks to Citrix technology but I don’t know if this is going to happen for real and plus, you’re streaming those apps off the server through virtualization anyway. Needless to say, the Dex Station is compatible with Galaxy S8, S8+ and Galaxy Note 8.

NTUC Learning Hub

This one’s going to be a good opportunity although it is missing the Windows Client side of courses and going through the Windows Server side is not a good start as those courses can be really hard. The same difficulty can go for networking and cyber security which I’m not good at. However, with the Post-Secondary account or whatever as I was told, there will be discounts for whatever courses you’ve chosen.

Dreamcore

A local company that started business late last year. What they do is to customize the computers and make them sellable to the customers provided that the company like this has the license to do so.

Gaming keyboards

This is what’s bothering me with many more companies being interested in inventing mechanical gaming keyboards probably due to the price range or something as if those keyboards are affordable. Companies like Fujitsu, Rangers and even Valore which is part of Challenger had started inventing those keyboards. Question is, where am I supposed to fit the keyboard on the bedroom workstation desk? It’s outnumbering if you ask me but at least this is something I can appreciate.

Beatmania IIDX 25 Cannon Ballers

OK, there may be positive impressions as well as the negative ones. One positive impression includes the change to the arcade hardware which no longer runs Windows XP Embedded along with the fact that it has better audio hardware and drivers. There’s even the internal camera for top-down video recording of yourself playing the game like you’re trying to show off the fingering or some kind but that is more or less an official addon for the machine unlike Maimai series where the entirely of you can be seen in the video playing the game although there’s no official video capturing stuff of the game’s screen. I’m not sure if the in-game audio will be recorded through the Stereo Mix or not just like Maimai series does although there won’t be so much sound effects going on during the recording.

The location test took place 3 months ago but something troublesome cropped up there that Konami had to pull back the machine off the arcades quickly probably due to some threat going on as stated on Twitter. The story according to Bemanistyle is that someone wanted to go to the arcades where the game was being location tested to harm the hell out of those people there. At least, he apologized but I don’t know the reason on why did he do this.

 

Last thing is that the style name of Beatmania IIDX 25 refers to the illegal cross-country races organized in America in the 1970s. Illegal events are unforgivable and I bet that I had seen some before. I still never forget the one I wanted to report to but due to the fact that I didn’t have time to photograph or film the hell out of it as evidence during the event time, I wasn’t able to report it. Maybe I thought I would be causing trouble that way but whatever they planned was outright illegal and the event took place in the school campus 4 years ago. It was a stupid underestimation on people’s brains as if the event organizers thought that they didn’t know about those stuffs. It was also successfully executed that I couldn’t forgive this illegal success like they could deny the trouble they were in.

The game will be out sometime in December and with the new hardware, it should keep the series going like Gitadora does ever since 4 years ago. The others still have outdated arcade system to be frank like Jubeat, Pop’n Music, DDR, Sound Voltex, Reflec Beat, etc.

Rev Up Stomp Out event at Piedra Negra

The first DJ event I attended so far and it might look like that this was the first time clubbing or some kind. Perhaps, I need to familiarize with the environment along with the people managing the club but so far, it looked like I knew one person a little bit as if my opinions are nothing special probably due to the fact that I knew tons of things about music and DJ stuffs. Another thing I need to familiarize myself is the tracks themselves from each genre but needless to say, this kind of DJ event is a rare kind as you don’t see anyone spinning to Hardcore genre in their gigs in countries like Singapore. I mean, do nightclubs accept this sort of genre? Also, there might be complaints about how fast the music is.

As this is my first time, the music would be loud like always but at least I could see things carefully due to sufficient rotating lights although the room was obviously small but wide in my opinion. Not to mention that my Ipod Touch had a small microphone that it was not able to tolerate such an extremely loud noise when trying to film the scene with it so the sound from the video was completely distorted due to that.

The main genre was probably Hardstyle but the last set went UK/Happy Hardcore for some reason like it was a surprise. Other surprises included some song from the foreign Chinese-speaking drama I watched along with some DJ who played a bunch of Chinese tracks.

There was some rain going on during the gig and even if the event ended, the rain was still there although it was drizzling. I wanted to check outside but in the end, I managed to go downstairs completely and saw that it was still drizzling.

Needless to say, clubbing is an expensive trip and especially when you’ve become a DJ who has gotten on your gigs before. Most of the time you’ll go back home is probably in the middle of the night or morning-to-be time. For musicians, it may be a different story as if the live shows take place in daytime or nighttime but for DJs, it’s mostly nighttime activity so you may want to think twice before planning to become a club/bar DJ as you’ll be going back home extremely late.

Furthermore, being familiar with the music structure, music genre and the way you mix are the important keys before you do any DJ networking there. Not to mention that you may need to pay your dues if you want to get a chance of getting booked again. Unfortunately, it looked like networking isn’t going to be easy and I still have yet to prepare DJ identity cards as well as the music from professional legal sources. Like what do new DJs do for the first gig, register for a DJ pool after getting booked? I don’t know.

There can be plan B in case of system failure during the gig but the music you’re going to play from must be from the legal source as well.

Lastly, it looked like I have one more obstacle after attending that event. Like attending Global Game Jam 1-2 years ago, those retarded troublemakers at home would get themselves worried if I had to go back home late but then, there was a Halloween-themed school-DJ event which ended late but before midnight that I went back home in a similar fashion. To find a club that operates at early night to beyond midnight is a challenge but I don’t think I can be a different kind of DJ who signs up for an early night gig like that in which I can go back home before midnight or something. That’s not how the occupation works as a DJ. So far, those kinds of events I attended were none of those retards’ concerns as of this writing, it seems that those retards’ ignorance had gotten worse from May this year onwards. It was a crazy torture going with them and the way they converse to other elders about what I do continues to piss me off in the present time. It’s a bad influence enough on my brain but I hope that I should be more responsible on my own in public. No elder people DARE to disrespect musicians/DJs with such conversation like that.

Tokimeki Idol (Same controversy as Metal Gear Survive?)

What the hell, ANOTHER IDOL-THEMED RHYTHM GAME? WHAT TIME IS KONAMI WASTING ON? HAS THIS POPULARITY FRIED THEIR BRAINS APART? STOP, THERE’S WAY TOO MANY OF THOSE GAMES EVER SINCE THE POPULARITY KICKED OFF A FEW YEARS AGO WITH UNORIGINAL CONCEPT! WHAT WAS THE LAWSUIT AGAINST DJ MAX DEVELOPERS FOR WHEN THIS UPCOMING IDOL-THEMED RHYTHM GAME IS BEING MADE?

It’s an epic waste of time with this upcoming spinoff with similar looking concept like the interface design being the same, 2D and 3D graphics of idols performing on stage during gameplay and I don’t know the amount of originality the gameplay has. Some of the games in the list according to Wikipedia have DIFFERENT CONCEPTS, like Taito’s Idol Chronicle where you manage only ONE idol group with whatever outfits and accessories you can randomly draw for, Tokyo 7th Sisters has different and better gameplay concept with version 2.0 onwards although it uses FMVs behind the HUD and of course, Bang Dream Girls Band Party which has rock bands instead of idol groups although the kind of fanbase along with partially original interface design are the reasons on why the game falls on this list.

I don’t know what caught the game developers like Square Enix, Taito and even Konami the attention into making such a copy-paste game like that with similar layout and template. This is like taking Street Fighter IV template and then making your own fighting game but this is too outnumbering.

Many of the nerds may regret the fictional idol stuffs due to being outnumbered by the endless amount of such games in existence for mobile and it can be a huge waste of battery and storage space in playing those anyway. You may look like a spoilt idiot if you have played all of those idol-themed rhythm games as stated in the on-going list in Wikipedia but a few of them should be enough as you have other things to do.

You know what Konami should do instead? Make a god damn campaign for Bemani games that is a tribute to Tokimeki Memorial franchise just like they did with Hina-Bitter campaign. Why would they waste such a god damn time ripping off the other rhythm games in existence?

It’s an unlucky time for us and especially that Konami is coming up with Bombergirl which is a controversial spinoff of the Bomberman franchise. This, on the other hand, is the spinoff of Tokimeki Memorial franchise and they made a comeback with it? Perhaps, THIS and Bombergirl are what Metal Gear fans can talk shit about and I hope nobody as a gamer cares about them. It’s a negative change and not what I want to see.

I don’t know what is so DIFFICULT to make a new game in the classic series like the Tokimeki Memorial one so to speak. Even without the main and famous director behind the series, they could have made a new one without him under a new team just like what the other team at Konami comes up with Super Bomberman R. Like Metal Gear Survive, this upcoming spinoff is unacceptable as if some fool thinks that a few idol-themed rhythm games is not an enough amount.

The only appealing so far is that one of the characters from this upcoming spinoff is a retro-gaming freak as if Gradius is one of her favorite games or some kind. Another thing is that the prologue CD has some songs from the classic Konami games.

Sure, Love Live School Idol Festival on mobile is one popular and excellent rhythm game and it’s fine for Bandai Namco to come up with their rival games from the Idolmaster franchise but THIS OVER-POPULARITY HAS TO STOP. It’s getting out of control with the endless amount that it can be difficult to find the ones you can recognize and be interested in.

At this rate, it may look like Konami can do whatever sinister shit they want besides doing the right thing. The game is said to be coming out in late this year or something and there’s nearly no way anyone can cause a reform of the incompetent game company we know of. Play the game by the time it comes out if you want, but that will mean you’re pissing off Metal Gear fans regularly.

Cuphead

Talk about a positive change in this one as Cuphead uses the style of 1930s cartoon but with color and sharper visuals thanks to modern technology. Don’t expect any shiny shaders like you see in modern cartoons nowadays in which the character’s body is having gradient fills everywhere as if those things are done in 3D and then converted into 2D. Not even the smoky and explosion effects will have those shaders as well. Music back then is mostly jazz-like and the cartoon shows back then are probably suited for everyone to watch. Not to mention that the way the cartoon shows are produced in the past is analog-ish so it’s not all digital like you produce a modern cartoon with a modern computer. Imagine a modern cartoon produced at this present time with the style of the past, will there be whiny complaints or something?

The gameplay is said to be a run-and-gun shooter similar to Contra or something. You can shoot enemies, slide and even air-dash like in Hard Corps Uprising. Certain games are mentioned as official references by the developers in their blog to proof the inspiration. I guess that the only originality is the modernization of the past cartoon style without drifting away from what the game looks like in visual style. Be warned, like other run-and-gun shooter games, this one is really hard as if my hard times in playing Hard Corps Uprising weren’t hard enough due to how harsh the games of this genre are. Perhaps, it’s something to do with the level design part with a bunch of harsh platforming elements. Not to mention that there may be some kind of concept conflict in Hard Corps Uprising when I played it like no matter how modern the gameplay concept is with additional action techniques, the game is still hard.

The story of the game occurs because the two main characters had caused trouble at the casino or some kind in which they lost to the devil and had to pay a huge debt. In fact, they shouldn’t have gone there in the first place and that the story should be completely something else.

As this is an indie game with the graphical style of a 1930s cartoon, the game could have been ported to other platforms besides Xbox One and Steam as it doesn’t take up so much resources that way, not like those anima-tic games produced by Arc System Works that take up more than what Cuphead does. In fact, even Animal/Kemono Friends should have the same character style as Mickey Mouse franchise as I find it a serious mistake of this year over childish behavior influence coming from some of the human-personified animal characters which reduces one person’s IQ and maturity according to the critic. Also, a talking penguin with white gloves and shoes should be worth looking at like it is a style of cartoon character suited for everyone instead.

VirtualBox 5.2

To use virtual machines in the cloud may require that you have the bank account in existence as you’ll be charged monthly for using the cloud VM services like Azure, Google Compute, etc. but it seems that Oracle has the integration feature of VirtualBox VMs to Oracle Cloud. Mostly, the cloud VM services may require that you fill in your personal particulars including the company name or some kind as if the consumption of electrical resources and data bandwidth is quite costly on both sides. There’s no such thing as free plan for cloud VM service as if every plan is priced. There may be trial usage on Azure and Oracle Cloud when it comes to cloud VMs although it lasts for a month and that’s it. I’m sure that cloud VM stuff is going to be quite handy for work use and to find a service just for personal use is not an easy find.

The next thing is the unattended guest OS installation similar to the ‘Easy Install’ feature found in commercialized version of VMWare Workstation. Normally, the setup interface poses a challenge when you install the OS yourself but the Easy Install-like feature makes things easier in which you have to fill in the stuffs yourself before starting the VM. Furthermore, certain pages of the setup wizards will be skipped but when it comes to Windows OOBE, there may be pages of the wizard that have the options of allowing things to be collected or some kind. I don’t know if this new feature VirtualBox has will recognize this situation but that’s how unattended OS install works and especially when you’re test-deploying OSes to the virtual machines whether it’s a personal, work or study stuff. Well, if you’re studying the OS deployment stuff like I did, you can probably go for certified courses that have that practical topic as well. Be sure not to pick the wrong one of course. The last thing as of the Easy Install feature is the installation of the guest additions, something the deployment tools don’t do by default as the guest addition stuff may count as an external desktop app you may want to add.

Needless to say, the Easy Install feature from VMWare Workstation is just for unattended installs so if you want to customize something prior to that, you may need some external deployment tools for it.

Top 10 IOS and Android apps banned by companies for security reasons

The majority of Android apps are probably banned by companies due to malware and anything that goes against cyber-security while the list for IOS mentions various famous apps like Whatsapp, Pokemon Go, WinZip, Facebook Messenger, Plex, WeChat and some unknown eBay app.

For Whatsapp on IOS, it can send Address Book while Facebook Messenger, WinZip and some unknown eBay app in the Top 10 list send SMS messages. Plex on the other hand, does something quite worse like exposing device name and location. Camera exposure through apps is another reason like you don’t want other people in public areas in the photo or video or maybe private premises SHOULD NOT be photographed or filmed. Plex is supposed to be some kind of a home media center service but why would it expose camera like it’s beyond me? This is something Plex should explain and media centers at home are for watching something like movies, dramas and other TV shows.

According to the firm however, it appears that companies are seriously concerned about those cyber-security flaws in the apps like they pay detailed attention to them. Most of the time, the information transmission isn’t encrypted despite the fact that there are promises to get messages encrypted for apps like Whatsapp, for instance. Furthermore, Facebook, Pandora and Yelp are to be treated with extra care by administrators, that is for IOS and on Android, Uber, Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger may include things like data leaks and breaches.

Lastly, about Pokemon Go being in Top 10 IOS apps banned by companies, it may be due to the fact that:

  • The players may be disturbing the workplace like trying to find and catch the Pokemon taking place in the company premises.
  • The locations may be vulnerable to trepassing because of rare Pokemon, gym or any other stuffs taking place there.
  • The game can be used by criminals for illegal activities which may make the players and non-players the victims. (Eg: Luring victims to such locations through illegal modification of the game)
  • Even with policies, the cases can occur.

To use those apps in the workplace is equal to seeking serious trouble and the researchers at Appthority spent tons of effort in identifying the flaws of the apps for IOS & Android. Perhaps, the same policy should go for Windows Store apps as used in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. To make them exactly like Windows 7 in which every Modern UI stuffs and apps have to be removed completely isn’t an easy task but the enterprise version of Modern UI apps should be a thing for business touch screen devices.
