Briefly: Broken Pokemon GO, EB Cosplaygate, Australian Post Disruptor

Brief news items of note for Lifehacker readers, including: Sydney startup versus Australia Post, Pokemon GO server issues worsen, Nike embraces a fuller image.

  • A Sydney startup is ramping up its challenge to Australia Post’s parcel business by launching a new satchel service for small business. Business Insider has the story.
  • Connectivity issues are par for the course right after a popular game launches. Usually, things stabilise after a couple of days, if not sooner. Pokemon GO has somehow managed to get worse as time goes on.
  • Nike’s recent Instagram represents a huge departure for the brand — and people are loving it.
  • EB Expo’s inaugural and nonsensical Ultimate Cosplayer Pass has quietly disappeared from the EB Expo website. The $300 ticket was met with widespread criticism from the local cosplay community, despite formerly taking pride of place on the event website.
