The Pokébible : Pokémon Go

Standard

 

What Are Pokémon?

”Pokémon“ is a combination of the words “Pocket” and “Monsters,” and you might remember them from the last time they sparked an international craze. The first Pokémon games were released in 1996 on the Game Boy .Basically, the game takes place in a world full of Pokémon, monsters of various sizes that can be captured by tiny red balls and tamed by Pokémon trainers.The game, which marries a classic 20-year old franchise with augmented reality, has taken the world by storm despite having been launched in only five countries the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Britain and Germany.

So What’s Pokémon Go? 

Last week, Niantic Labs released a new augmented reality game featuring the monsters from the video game series, and it’s called Pokémon GO. The basic premise is the same as the normal games: players have to capture, train and fight Pokemon. The big difference is that thePokémon are now located in the real world, at least, sort of. Pokémon GO is a GPS enabled game that asks the players to walk around their neighborhoods and hunt down Pokémon. Allows you to take photos of Pokémon in all sorts of weird places and then share them.

 It’s geocaching, basically, which you might be familiar with, just with game mechanics and visuals layered on top of it. The CEO of developer Niantic Labs is John Hanke, who is one of the original chief architects of Google Earth. The head of the developer behind Nintendo Co Ltd’s (7974.T) Pokemon GO said he wanted to launch the smash-hit mobile game in roughly 200 countries and regions “relatively soon” and was working on bolstering server capacity to enable the wider rollout.

The Fandom was perfectly set up for Pokémon Go:

 Nintendo has something called the “same generation hypothesis,” which says that certain audiences stick with their childhood games even after they’ve grown out of the perceived target audience. Pokémon was one of those games, and Nintendo saw it in the dataPokémon has been a hugely popular brand for two decades, and that recognition, combined with the novel idea of hunting in your backyard, has caught hold. So when Pokémon Go came out, it already had a massive built in audience of people who had devices that could play the game.

Pokémon GO: Tips, tricks and cheats : 

If you’re looking to get an edge on other players, here are a few tips and tricks that you might find useful.The most common pokémon are found in the 2km eggs, with the rarest in the 10km eggs .which means you’re in for a lot of walking if you want to advance in the game. But that’s where Rusty Cage’s hack comes in. for more on the hacks visit. PokéStops and the world.

Finding Gyms and Pokestops

The portals from Ingress and the Pokestops and gyms from Pokémon Go are at the same locations.Therefore, using the ingress intel map will provide you with your Pokémon Go map. I haven’t found an official map yet, but this has served the purpouse so far.

Or just look for any of the following, as they are typically great hubs:

  • Shopping centers
  • Parks
  • Museums
  • Churches
  • City Landmarks (city hall etc)
  • Historical Landmarks (statues etc)
  • College Campuses
  • Any other tourist location

Pokestops and Gyms in Pakistan

Started by Imdad Khan, a number of helpful Pokemon Go players have pooled their information together to plot all the known Gyms and Pokestops on a map. As of yet, it contains around 65 locations in Karachi, 35 in Lahore, 63 in Islamabad/Rawalpindi, 3 in Multan, 1 in Rahim Yar Khan, 3 in Bhera and 3 in Abbottabad. You can click on the link below to head over to the map.

‘Pokémon Go’ Craze Raises Safety Issues

Advancing in the game involves collecting items such as “Poké Balls,” which are needed to catch monsters, and can be found at “PokéStops.” Players use captured creatures to fight other players at “gyms.” Social media is full of reports of players hurting themselves by tripping and falling while glued to their phone screens.The authorities have warned people not to drive while searching for characters .

The game “could be potentially leading people into areas where they don’t belong,” such as construction sites or shuttered storefronts.Which may lead to trespassing /breach. Law enforcement has warned people to be mindful while exploring. Pokemon Go app craze could be used by pedophiles to lure unsuspecting young players.

Cyber Crime

Standard

Cyber CrimeWHAT EXACTLY IS A CYBER CRIME

Cyber crime is one of the biggest threats all over the world. A Cyber crime is Any activity commissioned via computer, digital devices and networks used in the cyber realm, and is facilitated through the internet medium. It can include the distant theft of information belonging to an individual, government or corporate sector through criminal tress-passing into unauthorized remote systems around the world.

It includes from stealing millions of rupees from online bank to harassing and stalking cyber users. Cyber Crime also includes sending viruses on different systems, or posting defamation messages. Cyber crime has now surpassed illegal drug trafficking as a criminal moneymaker . Somebody’s identity is stolen every 3 seconds as a result of cyber crime .  Staying on the identity theft organization such as AASHA which means “hope” are working , helping to root out harassment against women of all ages from the society . “It is unfortunate that people are not educated in respecting other people’s privacy, specifically of women,”

Governing Bodies: 

FIA under NR3C  National Response Centre for Cyber Crimes has the exclusive authority to pursue cyber crimes under PECO, the Pakistan Electronic Crime Ordinance 2007, one of two laws that monitor Pakistan’s cyber space. The other is ETO, the Electronic Transaction Ordinance 2002, that provides for “legal sanctity and protection of e-commerce locally and globally”

Pakistan is one of the few countries where cyber crime laws are still in the pipeline waiting for implementation . Pakistan is currently facing the following types of cyber crimes .

Financial crimes
Cyber/Child pornography
Sale of illegal articles
Online gambling
Intellectual property crimes
Email spoofing
Cyber stalking
Forgery
Unauthorised access to computer systemsnetworks
Theft of information contained in electronic form
Virus/worm attacks
Logic bombs
Trojan attacks
Internet time theft
Password cracking
Buffer overflow

The offences appearing are triable by Court of Sessions, are non-bailable, compoundable and cognizable. Except the offences punishable with imprisonment of seven years or more. The punishment is for persons, groups or organizations who commit terroristic acts with terroristic intent using computers or computer networks.

All these offences are triable by the Information and Communication Technologies Tribunal whose principal seat would be at Islamabad and may hold sittings at other places. Till the time the tribunal is not established all the cases, proceedings and appeals offences appearing below will continue to be heard and decided by the competent forum existing under any law for the time being in force

 Conclusion: 

In the absence of Clearer Cyber Crime laws through which punitive action can be taken against those committing crimes on the cyber world in Pakistan, people are increasingly becoming victims of abuse on social media sites, internet frauds, etc. The complaint of fake Facebook profiles is the most rampant complaint where people created fake a profile of any person, in most cases of girls but men were no exception to this crime.

PML-N legislator Anoosha Rehman Khan, who is a member of the parliamentary committee on technology, receives many complaints of misuse of social media and harassment of women.

“I am very much on to address such concerns,” she said.

She admitted glaring loopholes exist in the legal field regarding child pornography, but said a select committee has been formed in the National Assembly to look into the revival of PECO 2007.

“All un-addressed abuses against women and children and other segments of society, whether through social networking sites or any other form of electronic means, will be addressed in the new PECO,” she assured Dawn newspaper .

However she could not provide a timeline for the urgent task.
