Pokémon GO: my adventure ends here

pokemon go no rootI opened Pokémon GO for my evening stroll and … game over!

They blocked the game on any rooted phone!

On Android, root is a must have, so I won’t remove it just to play a games that eats batteries like cakes! (One day I’ll write “10 reasons to get our phone rooted”)

It’s like as the ban on clippers on airplanes: totally useless!

If they wanted to ban cheaters: they’ll continue to cheat, with Magisk, Tasker and Xposed, they can continue to use the fake GPS, move around using a joystick instead of waking, catch chance calculators, and so on.

If they wanted to ban map scanners: they are using a program written for it, so they’ll just use the old API or pretend to be an iPhone.

I could continue to play it by setting Tasker to disable root via Magisk Manager as soon as the game is run, but is it worth?

Well, I removed the game and left an one star review, my battery thanks me 😂

Adobe sends invoices that are looking like spam

Unfortunately, needing it for work, I had to buy rent Photoshop CC.

After a few days I get the invoice by email:


Nlar? Who’s that? I almost pressed on “report spam”, when I see that’s an Adobe invoice. I open the email:


??? What the…?? They send an invoice (very important, because otherwise I can’t deduct the 19% VAT from it), like this, in an empty email, without a “thanks for giving us money, even if you hate us“???

If I didn’t remember to have bought rented it, I would have definitely deleted the invoice, since they sent it 3 days after the subscription!
