Gaming is another money-maker. With KakaoTalk, which is thought to be on 90% of all smartphones in South Korea, registered users can choose from more than 100 games they can play with one another, and games alone helped the company generate $311m in sales in the first half of 2013. A couple of non-Asian messaging apps such as Kik (Canada) and Tango (US) are turning themselves into full-fledged platforms too, inviting software engineers to create games that run on their apps. They will typically let developers take home half the revenue while taking a 20% cut. App stores such as Google Play and Apple’s App Store take the remaining 30%. Tango took all this a step further this month when it partnered with music-streaming Spotify to allow its 60 million monthly users to share music clips with one another. Two years ago Spotify launched a similar partnership with Facebook. “What we’re seeing in the messaging space is an explosion in growth,” said Spotify’s vice-president of strategic partnerships, Tom Hsieh, who hinted there would be partnerships with other messaging apps in the future too. “I don’t think there’s been a clear winner [among them] yet.”
Stranger danger is an issue. Kik allows communication with strangers who share their Kik usernames to find people to chat with. The app allegedly has been used in high-profile crimes, including the murder of a 13-year-old girl and a child-pornography case. There’s also a Kik community blog where users can submit photos of themselves and screenshots of messages (sometimes displaying users’ full names) to contests.

Beim Lungenfacharzt, in Fachkreisen auch Pneumologe genannt, wurde ich neulich regelrecht dazu genötigt, so eine Untersuchung (NO- Messung) durchführen zu lassen, die nach Aussagen des Arztes für eine optimale Diagnose unverzichtbar wäre. Meine Krankenkasse sieht das allerdings völlig anders. So habe ich durchaus widerwillig 10 Euro bar bezahlt, schließlich will man ja nicht wegen des eigenen Geizes vorzeitig den Tulpenzwiebeln in deren natürlichem Lebensraum zum Untermieter werden.
