Pokémon(c) App and Driving

Yeah, I heard on the evening news about the new @Pokémon app everyone is downloading for their cell phones. It evidently is a mixed virtual reality app, and to get more points and levels, users are directed via their GPS to find locations and the cell phone camera shows Pokémon monsters as an overlay on the cell phone screen. Sounds really cool, right. Well on my way to work, I saw someone driving with their cell phone held up at their steering wheel level running the app to see if they could find the monsters while driving. Be safe!

Also, I hear they sent out an update to scale back the application's permissions to user cell information. Good move since lots of kids are using the app and also privacy is important for everyone if the app doesn't need that broad of access.
