    It is. With an MMO component as well. If you like both of those, the game is full of win.

    I'm keeping an eye on it, so if I ever get the ability to invite others Chatter will have first dibs.

    In a way, yeah. Also, I meant to point this out earlier... take a minute to stop and think about the tremendous data value offered by Ingress from the point of view of a company that relies on gathering detailed, specific data. Google now has the ability to pre-select very specific locations, and then record very specific information about that location (such as routes taken, travel time, etc.). That data can even be taken to an extreme if analyzed for things like crowd flow dynamics and more.

    A Google game is never just a game.

    Nope Google's out for information, and that isn't necessarily a horrible thing but lumenii has it, they want data they can do very specific things with and this is the easiest way to get it

    Definitely. And I give them a lot of credit for it this time. Had they just tried to track devices to accumulate this data there would be a huge uproar (privacy complaints, anyone?). But they turned it into a game and now people are desperate to cough the data up to them.

    Also, they can get a good amount of data from maps if people use it when they're driving. But this serves the purpose of pulling the pedestrian data which, as far as I can tell, is so far lacking for Google.

    OK so the ROM was kinda glitchy. Back to stock/rooted 4.2.1 for tonight. Maybe tomorrow I'll find the latest AOKP (stable or not) and rock it for the weekend. Anyways, I'm out Chatter. Hope you all have a great evening/night. Tomorrow's friday!

    As do I. It's commendable to take such a creative approach to crowd-sourced data collection and at such a level of quality -- at least as far as I can tell. Now, assuming that Ingress won't go public (or open invite requests) for at least a few months... you think I'd get an invite if I 3D-printed a titanium desktop model (think: sculpture display case) of the Ingress logo?

    Me thinks yes.

    mrro attempted this for a while. So who knows? If you're going to try artwork, keep close tabs on the 4 people on Google+ mentioned in the AC article about Ingress invites. Also watch +Ingress (the Google+ account that actually gave me my invite). Last Saturday when I was working on my invite I noticed that 3 of those 5 accounts were handing out invites every 5-10 minutes or so. If they're doing that again this Saturday, it will increase your likelihood of scoring one.

    Doesn't strike me as odd. I was a bit concerned when playing tonight. One of the portals I was working on happened to be in a residential area (in someone's backyard, for that matter - it seems Google placed a few portals in a completely incorrect spot) and I know people in the house saw me drive by multiple times. I even sat out front for a bit deploying some of my items. After those few passes, I decided to leave that portal alone for the night as I didn't want them reporting "suspicious activity".

    As more invites are handed out, I'd expect the police to learn a bit more about this. However, to someone who has no idea what the game is, it probably looked like I was casing the neighborhood.
