<p>The latest episode of the long-running comedy show South Park digs into the unethical side of freemium mobile games.</p><p>We're talking about grinding, wait-timers, and multiple in-game currencies used to encourage you to spend your real money inside a game.</p><p>If you play mobile games in any capacity then you're bound to be familiar with the pressure that comes with freemium games. It's this that the South Park episode criticizes.</p><p>You can watch the episode here, but not if you're in the UK, unfortunately. Luckily, Kotaku has some choice clips from the episode.</p><p>The first one sees a Canadian businessman explaining to Terrence and Philip what freemium games are, and how they work.</p><p>"With mobile apps we now have the ability to make games that are boring and stupid," he begins. "But, if you pay for inventions, you're rewarded."</p><p>"Freemium. The "mium" is Latin for not really," another guy adds.</p>Whale hunting<p>Another clip that, again, Kotaku has available for you to watch, delves into the concept of whales.</p><p>"Whales" is the term used by companies to refer to the one percent of users who contribute to most of a game's profits.</p><p>"The truth is, a very small percentage of people who download freemium games ever pay anything for them," the character says.</p><p>"It's all about finding the heaviest users, and extracting the most amount of cash from them.</p><p>"That's how you get addicts to pay two hundred bucks for a game that's not even worth forty cents."</p><p>Terrence then replies with: "But then all our profits come from people with problems."</p><p>The businessman's reply? "Don't think about that! Think about all the money!"</p>Kotaku

The Goods and the Ills
<p>Many of the resources needed to create components for high end technology are called "rare earth minerals", which are found in very few places around the world. Most of them happen to be located in developing nations, and gathered by people in working conditions that are appalling. In this situation these materials are often called "conflict minerals".</p><p>We're talking about terrible dictators using armed soldiers to force children to clamber down unsafe holes in the ground to scrape out Tantalum (a vital component of mobiles), and using the funds received from selling the materials to continue a genocide that they're currently waging.</p><p>In a lot of ways, you and I are supporting these dictators by buying mobile phones from companies that use the minerals from these awful sources.</p><p>Enter Fairphone.</p><p>Fairphone is an initiative I really really love.</p><p>It's a company that is currently making the equivalent of a Fairtrade smartphone, where buyers can understand the whole process of where materials for the device are sourced, and how the phone is made. And if you read the paragraphs above, hopefully you should be thinking, like I do, that these are very important issues indeed.</p><p>Fairphone has just opened pre-orders on its new device, the Fairphone 2.</p><p>Now you might be worried that a device made in these socially conscious conditions would be made of hemp and good intentions, but the device Fairphone put out last year - which sold 60,000 units - was awesome, a serious piece of kit, and Fairphone 2 looks to be even better.</p><p>In terms of specs it's at the lower end of top tier, which will be more than enough to smash the pants off of any current game you care to chuck at it.</p><p>It runs Android Lollipop on a Snapdragon 801, Quad-Core 2.26 GHz Qualcomm Krait 400, with a Qualcomm Adreno 330 GPU 578 Mhz for its GPU. There's 2 GB of LPDDR3 RAM running at 931 Mhz, plus 32GB eMMC5 flash storage with the option for more via Micro SD.</p><p>The screen is 5 inches, made of Gorilla Glass 3, and pumps out a resolution of 1080 x 1920 at 446 ppi, plus there's an 8MP camera with CMOS Sensor and flash on the rear, a 2MP cam with CMOS Sensor on the front, and all the usual connectivity niceties (4G, WLAN, Bluetooth, GPS, FM Radio, and Dual-SIM).</p><p>The phone will also have custom accessories available, plus spare parts and a modular build system for increased mechanical longevity and inexpensive repairs should the worst happen.</p>

A GOATHERD, driving his flock from their pasture at eventide, found some Wild Goats mingled among them, and shut them up together with his own for the night. The next day it snowed very hard, so that he could not take the herd to their usual feeding places, but was obliged to keep them in the fold. He gave his own goats just sufficient food to keep them alive, but fed the strangers more abundantly in the hope of enticing them to stay with him and of making them his own. When the thaw set in, he led them all out to feed, and the Wild Goats scampered away as fast as they could to the mountains. The Goatherd scolded them for their ingratitude in leaving him, when during the storm he had taken more care of them than of his own herd. One of them, turning about, said to him: "That is the very reason why we are so cautious; for if you yesterday treated us better than the Goats you have had so long, it is plain also that if others came after us, you would in the same manner prefer them to ourselves."
