postheadericon Attempted Armed Robbery Of Concealed-Carrying Pokemon Go Player In Vegas Park Ends With Gunfire: Be Aware Of Your Surroundings

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — A group of Pokemon Go players came into some trouble while they were playing the popular game at a park in Las Vegas at 4am. The twist? One of the players, a concealed carrier, was armed at the time.

While trying to catch Pokemon –or whatever you do with that game– the group was met by two suspects that pulled up next to them in an SUV. Armed with handguns, the suspects demanded the group’s belongings.

In that moment, the armed player drew his firearm and the two sides exchanged gunfire. One person was hit in the Pokemon Go group, and one of the suspects was also hit. Both went to the hospital for treatment.

One person in the Pokemon group was shot once in the stomach and taken to the hospital. Meltzer said it’s unclear if that person shot is also the player who had his own gun but that the group of local players knew each other.

The man believed to be the suspect also appeared at the hospital with a gunshot wound to the back. A matching SUV was also found at the hospital.

Both suspects were arrested, and of course charges are expected.

I’ve seen this game played out in the wild and while some are trying to pay attention to their surroundings, most are oblivious. It’s an important reminder that, no matter what we’re doing, we are remaining focused on our surroundings at all times.

These things happen so quickly, after all.

postheadericon Microsoft Devices Group announces ultra-affordable mobile phone with music and video player for 19 euros

REDMOND, Wash. — Aug. 11 , 2014 Recognizing the rapid growth of ultra-affordable mobile phones, Microsoft Devices Group on Monday unveiled the Nokia 130, a mobile phone designed to introduce millions of people to new digital experiences. At just 19 euros,* the Nokia 130 combines the everyday essentials that first-time mobile phone buyers expect with the beautiful design, reliability and mobile entertainment they want. Featuring a built-in video player, music player with up to 46 hours continuous playback on a single charge, and everyday essentials such as a flashlight, FM radio and USB charging, the Nokia 130 is the perfect introduction to a “mobile first” world.

The Nokia 130 is an ideal handset for first-time mobile phone buyers, or for people seeking a reliable backup phone to complement their existing smartphones. It’s built to last, with a 1.8-inch color display and outstanding battery life of up to 36 days’ standby for the single-SIM variant and 26 days’ standby for the dual-SIM device. In design and quality, the Nokia 130 stands out among devices priced below $ 35.* Every year, people buy 300 million phones from this category alone.**

As one of the most affordable mobile phones with video playback, the Nokia 130 makes new digital experiences accessible to more people. It delivers hours of entertainment with the built-in video player that offers up to 16 hours of playback for video stored on a microSD card, MP3 player and FM radio. With support for expandable microSD storage up to 32GB, alongside the Bluetooth-enabled SLAM application and USB connectivity, it also makes sharing digital content easy without the need for an Internet connection.

“As demand in the affordable mobile segment continues to grow, Microsoft remains committed to delivering market-leading mobile innovation at each and every price point,” said Jo Harlow, corporate vice president for Phones, Microsoft Corp. “It is estimated that at least 1 billion people in the world still do not have a mobile phone, while at the same time there is increasing demand for reliable backup phones in both mature and high-growth markets.”

She continued, “With handsets like the Nokia 130, we see tremendous potential to deliver the experience of a ‘mobile-first’ world to people seeking their first device, and we continue to invest in ultra-affordable devices that will introduce people to a ‘cloud-first’ world through Microsoft services such as Bing, Outlook.com and OneDrive.”
