PokemonGo…. As in GO make me some Money!? LOL :)

Okay so my kids are not obsessed with this game anymore…. But unfortunately still watch the non-award wining tv show. ¬†ūüôā

I saw this from my wife’s repost of FB. ¬†(About FB if you are not paying them money…. Basically your FB fans do not see your posts. ¬†Just saying.)

It is interesting how the zoo has a whole event which involves no animals and just a game. ¬†This marketing makes since. ¬†(BTW There Dino Discovery…. is an absolute waist of money. ¬†It should be free and I would still want a refund. ¬†ūüôā )

Here is an article about the upcoming advertising and how they are going to have ‘sponsered locations”. ¬†But I am not sure now how purchasing a “lure” would help if you do not have a stop near your location? ¬†(I believe a lure only works at a stop?)

Pokémon Go will soon get ads in the form of sponsored locations

UPDATE 20160822: Stupid crap….
pokemango

Things I hate…. why does everyone believe their political opinions are facts? Both¬†sides think the other side is wrong…. (just one side is wrong ūüôā ) ¬†Plus “Trickle-Down Economics” give me a break…. isn’t that just another term for socialism or communism? It just describes the government and how they provide for their friends (top) and the needy (bottom)? LOL ūüôā See now I am as bad as everyone else!

PokemonGo…. As in GO…. Call your Parents to Pick you Up!? :)

Sure I remember Pokemon as a kid…. I thought it was…. Well…. ¬†Animals living in a ball…. Why? Where is PETA? ¬†Plus the cartoon…. ¬†Battles…. Etc. ¬†I missed something…. Or I missed nothing at all.

So with PokemonGo can your business benefit from a stop or a gym? ¬†The user demographics released say yes…. ¬†the majority being Women college graduates making 90k. ¬†But logic and reliability seems like no?

My kids like the game (4 and 7 years old).¬†¬†It is a great concept. ¬†Even if you did not have to walk around in real life…. Or drive. ¬†Probably a better idea also if it did not require movement? ¬†Wait for the lawsuits…. Unfortunately.

I did my own checking today with¬†my kids…. who wanted to check out a nearby park. ¬†The park has¬†over 15 stops and 2 gyms.¬† They apparently have meetings there also (sign).

We saw (It was an overcast Saturday and it poured 30 minutes after we left.):
-12 males < 40 years old playing openly (with their phone in hand walking around like their phone was a compass and they were lost.¬† ūüôā )
-Maybe 1 female with a male…. Both playing.
-Also 6 kids (<10 years old) playing openly.

I would categorize only 1 person as not living with their parents.

The individual in the picture siting is “battling” (at least that is what my 4 year old said?)…. The individual behind him wondering around is….. Well loss? ¬†LOL ūüôā ¬†There was a guy far left and he was the only normal guy there playing a game…. like a normal person and smiled at us. ¬†There was also a guy directly behind us.

As for us…. We were also trying to catch an elusive monster…. A real life lizard! ¬†LOL ūüôā ¬†It got away!

I really believe the demographic have to be flawed…. Sure 1/3 are guys that are 18-38. But 90% of the women are really 4-10 year olds. Or males that want to touch a female that makes 90k and graduated from college? ¬†JK (But you can quote me on that. ¬†LOL ūüôā ) ¬†Basically my theory is someone has to be installing the app for the age bracket the game is made for…. 4-15? ¬†Plus the game requires GPS and how many 4-10 year olds have a cell phone? ¬†The¬†kids¬†unfortunately have to use their parents current phones or extra phones.

Honestly anyone male over 16 should be playing ingress right? ¬†I understand if you played Pokemon¬†as a kid but…. Animals in a ball? ¬†Plus the tv show? ¬†It is a kids show…. just like Star Wars. Sorry…. but true. ¬†ūüôā ¬†I do sympathy I also lived with my Parents late in my life. ¬†JK I love games also. ¬†LOL ūüôā

I would say the fact¬†Nintendo¬†is making the¬†Pokemon Go Plus proves the age bracket of the users…. 4-15? ¬†But someone has to drive these kids around…. so you should be able to market to them somehow?

Liquid Wrench to the Rescue!

2016-08-13_12-05-38
Well my rotary switch became very hard to turn and I left my spares at my house…. So I tried Liquid Wrench. ¬†It actually started to work right away…. But the next day it was working perfectly. ¬†I have never tried this before…. Not sure how I am going to clean it off though? ¬†I just assumed it would not work and I was going to replace the switch the next day anyway.
