Fight the power

Smart man Uli Kilian went ahead and made a robot out of LEGO that plays the free-to-play Jurassic Park Builder while he sleeps or is otherwise away from his iPad. Tapping dinosaurs every few minutes earns in-game currency (or you can spend real money). Kilian thought this was boring, so he automated the process, Wired reports.

My strategy for gaming crappy freemium systems is to never, ever play them ever. Now who's the smart guy who builds robots, has a stable, well-paying job, and a loving family, eh?
