What’s a little breaking and entering when it can get you hit points*?
Another aspect of the game’s virtual landscape is the Pokémon Gym – where characters can battle against each other.
After one such ‘gym’ was discovered on the grounds of the Technical University of Denmark, where construction work is currently taking place, a number of people tried to break in.

A Danish court realizes that running a for-profit gypsy cab outfit is not “sharing,” even if you do with your iJunk:
The Copenhagen City Court ruled on Friday that Uber’s profit motive means it is not a true ridesharing programme but instead is akin to an illegal taxi service.

From El Reg:
On Thursday, Facebook said a “technical glitch” caused the recording to be pulled from its social network. However, Reynolds claimed officers seized her phone and took over her Facebook account to delete the evidence.
Multiple sources with knowledge of the event have tonight confirmed to The Register that someone – highly suspected to be the city’s police – used her phone to remove her recording from public view shortly after the shooting. This was no technical glitch.
