-- Are people becoming video poker ZOMBIES? I watched a guy “play” video poker then soon realized he wasn’t “playing" anything - just obsessed with pushing buttons as fast as he could. He would be up 200 credits and then down to nothing. Then put more money in the video poker machine - get up and then down. At one point he cashed out and left with money - but Scoot has no idea how much he spent (money nor time) in the process. Gamblers are called "players" - but obviously it is more an addiction than playing a game. Do you gamble? Are you addicted or do you "play" the game? What's your advice for knowing when to walk away? And do people with gamb-ling problems really think they’ll recoup what they’ve lost if they just keep playing?
Has "Your phone or your life? replaced "Your money or your life? If you read the police reports you probably noticed a huge increase in cell phone armed robberies and thefts. Why are muggers and thieves taking cell phones along with wallets and purses? If your phone is stolen, what should you do to prevent identity or financial theft? Is there anything you can do to prevent information from a stolen phone from being used?
