Do you love to play mobile games online? There are certainly many to choose from. Lots of men and women who find that they tend to enjoy other games on video consoles or on their phones or even boardgames find that they also enjoy mobile games. These types of games are certainly different, but all of them can be great fun.
What are Mobile Games?
You have probably heard of some mobile games. If you have a smart phone or even a smart tablet, you have definitely heard of mobile games. Any mobile game is a game that can be played via the Internet on a mobile smart phone or a tablet. You can almost always play mobile games on your computer or on a laptop as well. They transition easily from one device to the next, which is another reason why they are so great.
What are the Best Mobile Games to Play?
Finding another game that fits your particular needs is relatively easy. Just think of the games that you enjoy playing regularly, and this will help you out tremendously. There are mobile games to fit every lifestyle and every interest. For example if you like to play baseball, basketball and tennis, there’re different types of Internet mobile games for all of these sports. Some people are not very involved in sports, and they don’t like them. That’s perfectly fine if that’s you. There’re other games that are more oriented toward people who like beauty and feminism, flowers, candy or even organization.
Ricardo Torres – Man leads police on chase through Bellagio's fountains
Ricardo Torres – Man leads police on chase through Bellagio’s fountainsIt’s not very often you see the police chase down someone in a borrowed boat — at least not in the Mojave Desert.Unless, maybe, it’s on the Strip.But the throngs gathered for a light and water show at the fountains of Bellagio on Thursday night saw that and more.What should have started as dancing lights synchronized to the sounds of longtime Las Vegas favorites Celine Dion, Elvis or — of late — superstar DJ Tiesto, turned into one weird way to take a dip that ended up damaging a site declared the United States’ No. 1 landmark.It all began just after 9 p.m., according to an arrest report from the Metropolitan Police Department. Bystanders hailed officers on bike patrol after they saw a man trying to climb a wall around the fountains.By the time police got close, he had made it over.Officers yelled at him, the arrest report said, and the man leaped into the water and swam toward the fountains.When he reached them, he “maliciously” tugged on lights and spouts while “screaming and yelling,” police said. Officers called for first responders thinking he might get electrocuted.At this point, two Las Vegas police officers were on their way to get him, via watercraft. MGM Resorts International, which owns Bellagio, let Metro use the boats.When they got close, the officers jumped out and made an in-water arrest.Manuel Gutierrez, 39, address unknown, was booked at the Clark County Detention Center on a felony count of destruction of property at a cost over $5,000, trespassing and resisting arrest. He didn’t show up Friday night in a search of the jail logs.It’s not clear why the man may have jumped. His arrest report didn’t mention anything about a police interview. Officers did not describe his state of mind.MGM Resorts used the incident as a reminder for proper behavior. The 8.5-acre man-made lake at 3700 Las Vegas Blvd. South is “not a swimming pool,” spokeswoman Mary Hynes said. Its average depth is 7 feet, and it gets up to 14 feet in spots.In other words, its probably over your head. So keep out.Repairs to the fountains had been made by Friday, Hynes said. The total cost wasn’t available.But Metro had an estimate: ‘way over’ $5,500, according to the arrest report, not counting what he did to one of the boats. That amount wasn’t determined. Police also accused Gutierrez of doing damage to an officer’s $700 vest.Another way to measure the cost? On weeknights after 8 p.m., the fountain shows start every 15 minutes. They last the length of an average pop or electronic dance music song, say three to five minutes.Thursday’s episode lasted just over 45 minutes. That comes to one disrupted song each for someone who could be a Canadian crooner, The King or a really big face on a billboard.Copyright GamingWire. All rights reserved.

Richard N. Velotta – Uber appears ready to roll in Las Vegas
Richard N. Velotta – Uber appears ready to roll in Las Vegas Uber, the ride-sharing company that thousands of Southern Nevada consumers have been clamoring for — and will likely result in thousands of headaches for transportation regulators and taxi company executives — is nearing its Las Vegas launch.Representatives of the company met with the Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial board on Wednesday to explain details of its service. The company hasn’t disclosed when it would launch or what its fares would be. Normally, the company’s rates are 10 percent to 20 percent below a market’s standard taxi rates.Justin Kintz, Uber’s head of public policy, said in the past 45 days, 50,000 people have opened the Uber app on their smartphones in Southern Nevada, an indication, he said, that the market is prime for the company that refers to itself as a technology company and not a transportation operation.That differentiation is what is confounding the Nevada Transportation Authority and the Nevada Taxicab Authority, which have regulations in place that prohibit an individual from operating ground transportation without a certificate of public convenience and necessity.Uber says it merely connects someone who needs a ride with someone who drives a car and has been vetted by the company to have insurance and a clean law-enforcement record.But a spokeswoman for the state’s Department of Business and Industry, which oversees the Transportation and Taxicab authorities, said drivers contracted by Uber would be treated like any other unlicensed transportation driver — with a citation and an impound order that would cost up to $10,000 per incident to resolve.Kintz and Uber spokeswoman Eva Behrend said the company is working to educate lawmakers and policymakers about the company’s business model but wouldn’t divulge the names of people contacted.The Uber representatives also wouldn’t say how many drivers it would contract with in Southern Nevada, saying it would base the number on supply and demand. They acknowledged that most of their drivers nationwide work part time or use their Uber earnings as supplemental income.Uber’s business model also uses dynamic supply-and-demand pricing, which means standard rates may not be in place during busy periods such as after casino shows, before and after large special events and before and after trade shows. But the Uber app warns customers when dynamic pricing is in effect and users can request a text message when regular pricing returns.That type of pricing flies in the face of taxi regulations that require cabs to collect fares with meters that measure distance and wait time. The Taxicab Authority earlier this week approved an 8 percent rate increase expected to take effect in the next few weeks.Other details from Uber’s meeting with the Review-Journal:■ The company’s app can “black out” certain pickup zones. The company has been meeting with resort companies to determine the best way to provide pick-up points that are convenient to customers. But the technology will be able to head off attempts to stop in the middle of traffic on Las Vegas Boulevard for a pickup.■ In busy New York, Uber strives for its drivers to pick up passengers within five minutes of requesting a ride. The company will try to meet that same standard here.■ Uber recently was approved to serve San Francisco International Airport and the company has worked with airports worldwide to establish ride-share zones so that passengers aren’t in taxi line queues.■ Behrend said the typical Uber customer isn’t just a millennial. She said customers nationwide include senior citizens needing a ride to the doctor’s office or a pharmacy and people who have had too much to drink and need a ride home.■ Uber uses third-party investigators to conduct background checks on its drivers, updating information annually.■ Drivers contracted to use Uber’s platform get 80 percent of the fares, which are paid electronically through the app. Drivers carry no cash. The remaining 20 percent goes to Uber per the company’s licensing agreement with the driver.
