Postby Doriana » Thu Jun 18, 2020 9:40 am

Cara (H/A/F) likes her phone and it's in good working condition, so why does she buy a new one?

Will the new phone: replace her existing phone? be used alongside it? be used in different situations than the existing phone?

WAG: she found the opportunity/offer of selling/giving it back in exchange of a new one. The offer was valid because her phone was in good working conditions and the counterpart did not want the updates of the new iOS (which I am not sure but are not improvements for many people)

Medical app monitoring health? Illness? Fitness? A condition? Contact tracing? This Distancing?

Which brings us to the point of markobr's partial $poiler which I'll quote here:

"Is this about the new German coronavirus tracking app? It doesn't run on older OS versions, so she buys a new phone where she can install the app."

Left to find out: Why was she so eager to install the app?

Is she eager to be a good example for others? Yes Maybe a teacher who wants her students to use the app? This would work Or working for the health authorities? Is she a politician? This is what I had in mind!

********SPOILER********

Cara is a small-town mayor in Germany. In the weeks leading up to the release of the official coronavirus track-and-trace app, she kept telling her constituents how important it is to download it once it becomes available. Imagine her surprise when she finds out the app won't run on her older iPhone! Wanting to lead by example, she replaces it with a newer model.


Well done, everyone, and thanks for playing!

Thanks for the puzzle, and greetings from Tübingen where the local mayor posts his experiences with the app on Facebook (one of the more sensible things he uses Facebook for) to Göttingen where a good amount of tracking and tracing seems to be necessary right now (from what I read here).
