Great article on the theme "do not follow the sheeps, lead the change". And very true when talking about Nintendo. Just "going mobile" is not only very hard but also very dangerous, prone to failure and not adapted to who Nintendo is. Extreme quality is one of Nintendo core value, it is very hard to deliver anything close to that on Mobile, at least without a huge diversion in value. Think about it, how many developers a company like Gameloft has? Versus Nintendo? It would just ruin them to go mobile, and we're not even sure the games would be good.
It's even very likely that they already tried and failed internally. #nintendo #dontgomobile :)
Conventional wisdom is wrong. It is not an inevitability that Nintendo must put its games on rival hardware or die. It may even be a bad move.

CIA accused of attempted weather control. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIw7d-QwCA

I think those things are going way too far. #stopthecia
NOT content with reading the world’s emails, could the Central Intelligence Agency also be trying to control its weather?

My, that is well thrown in their face... The fact he didn't know before though is doubtful. Couldn't say otherwise publicly anyway.

And yet another abuse. This one way deeper. 
Kaspersky said it was closely linked to Stuxnet, the NSA-led cyberweapon that was used to attack Iran’s uranium enrichment facility

Is that a shift in Chinese mindset? Good move imo. "Together we stand". Vietnam needs the same. #vietnam #startups #togetherwestand
