Pokemon Go


Well, the latest craze to take the nation and the world by storm is here. I know you have all been dying for the next big thing. The wait is finally over. I think this has taken all of the life cycle of a butterfly to turn into full-fledged hysteria. I know for me personally, I heard about it less than a week ago, and as of this morning it has over 100 million users. So not to be left in the technological dust storm that is Pokemon Go, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and explore all of the benefits of this new frenzy before it is cast onto the ash heap of discarded phone apps.
