In less than a month Pokémon GO! has taken this planet by storm. Look around you, and you're apt to see someone with a fixed gaze on their phones, swiping upwards aggressively, scowling at their screens, trying to catch 'em all.
It's insane how big this game is. Pokémon GO! is more popular than Tinder right now, and was more popular than porn for a brief bit of time as well. Plus Pokémon GO! is tracking more than 21 million daily active users, so that's pretty damn chill...
Gary Dear, owner of Mad Hatter's Ice Cream in Anacortes found himself situated in the middle of a maddening Pokémon GO mecca. Eager players have flocked from miles and miles away to his shop, where there are three Poké Stops located nearby---many end up getting ice cream after their journeying around.
"Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expected it to end up like this," said Dear. "I've never seen anything take off like this."
Dear even estimates that his store's sales have doubled, if not tripled, on certain nights when the Poké Madness runs wild.

Two influential Microsoft shareholders have been pushing the Redmond software giant to abandon what they view as non-essential product lines so that Microsoft can focus on its core strength: selling enterprise software to businesses.
That would probably mean dropping Xbox, Bing, and hardware including the Surface. Bless anyone who gets rid of Bing, but dropping Xbox seems like a terrible idea. What do you think? Should Microsoft focus on selling software to businesses? How long until the iBox? Link to the article in the via below the image
Belfast Telegraph reported that Carrie Fisher recently said an interview that she, along with Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, are all expected to report to work in March or April for their continued roles in the upcoming addition to the Star Wars series.
Fisher said in the interview that she's looking forward to returning to her role as princess Leia. "I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again - but with white hair," she said. "I think that would be funny."
This isn't the first we've heard of Fisher reprising her role as Princess Leia, but it's the closest to real confirmation we've gotten so far.
Melissa Harris Perry has a lot of feelings about Star Wars, primarily that it's racist, because Darth Vader was voiced by a black guy but played by a white guy.
The part where he was totally a black guy whose name was basically James Earl Jones...but while he was black he was terrible and bad and awful and used to cut off white men's hands, and didn't, you know, actually claim his son, but as soon as he claims his son and goes over to the good he takes off his mask and he's white.
Maybe she doesn't acknowledge the prequels as being real, and who can blame her for that, but Anakin/Vader is a white guy in those and he kills so many younglings. He also first "claims his son" while he's still "a black guy" (a whole movie before he takes off his mask) and, well, if you've ever heard Darth Vader's on-set voice, you'd understand why they dubbed over it with James Earl Jones:
