The only reason to buy an iPhone 14 comments

Sorry to disappoint, but iOS 10 doesn't give you more space either. It just removes the icon, the app is still on your phone taking up space.

You can try it now with the beta: http://beta.apple.com/

There's a thing called a "Geocache" if that's what you mean.

Phone glitched into landscape orientation... And wow that's a good idea 8 comments
funstats · 3 years ago
You can do this (tested on iOS):
1. Go to settings (in the Pokémon app).
2. Hold your phone in landscape.
3. Click "Report High Priority Issue" and press YES. A browser opens, and it's in landscape.
4. Close app to home screen.
5. Reopen app.

Landscape activated.

Everything besides the map gets messed up. It's usable, but the interface was clearly not designed for this.

Have fun!

This traffic light design needs to be implemented 15 comments
funstats · 3 years ago
Love the idea about knowing how long until the light will change! Not so sure about the complete redesign.

I saw another one where there was a ring around each light to indicate time remaining. Same red / yellow / green, but with a "progress" ring. This one:

Much better than a complete redesign in my opinion. People are already so used to the current design, and this one doesn't provide enough novelty to warrant the readjustment. What do you think?

Put the kids in and seal the ends. See how long it takes them to figure it out.

(Just throwing this out there for fellow players)

The fact there was no one else around has nothing to do with it. All spawned Pokémon stay in one place for exactly 15 minutes (with the exception of a few which last slightly longer, up to 30 minutes). They despawn if and only if the timer runs out, regardless of other players catching them.

It's hot in Houston, Texas 7 comments
funstats · 3 years ago
The hottest temperature recorded on earth was 56.7 °C (1913, Death Valley). A study found that temperatures inside a car rose by 31 °C after four hours.

So 56.7 + 31 = ~88 °C, just shy of 90 °C, and that's for the absolute hottest case.

Some CD cases are made out of polypropylene (instead of polystyrene), which has a lower softening point. Perhaps the case was made out of that?

Either way, I think we can say it was "hot as balls" in the car.

It's this guy:

He was convicted of bank fraud in 2010 and was jailed in 2012 for violating probation (which is where the picture in the post came from). He made an anti-Islam film titled "Innocence of Muslims".

If you're referring to the Google account "they can read your e-mail" thing, that has been fixed. It was a bug all along and only affected iOS. The media blew it out of proportion to get views as usual. I can confirm that on my Google accounts page it no longer has "Full account access".

If you're not referring to that and are instead worried about it having access to your location and camera, well, that's the game!

The comment is 6 months old now, but will sometimes show at the top of the comment section (other times not). The replies by Carl Allen appear to have been removed.

I sure hope they have awesome data packages 3 comments
funstats · 3 years ago
It uses very little data. The game only communicates small packets (<10 kB) when you tap a PokeStop, Gym, or Pokémon, and every few seconds to update the map.

The biggest thing is probably the image files it downloads to show on the PokeStop spinny things, and the map tiles themselves (which come from Google maps).

Total, you probably couldn't get to 100 MB even if you played constantly.

This is so old though! It's gone up over 63% now!

It was 13,800 Yen ($131.80) on June 24 and is currently 22,840 ($218.20). It doesn't even look like it's stopping!

The only cultural shock in the US & Canada: No handheld showers?! 21 comments

I don't have a handheld shower, and never have specifically washed my butt... The water just kinda goes there? I suppose I never thought about it being unsanitary or anything.
