IPHONES LOADED WITH FLAPPY BIRD LISTED FOR $20,000 ON EBAY
Phones preloaded with the hit game Flappy Bird are being listed for as much as $20,000 on eBay after the app was deleted. The developer of Flappy Bird, which was the most popular free mobile game on Apple App Store and Google's Android Play store, removed the game from the online stores over the weekend. Yesterday, it was revealed he had received a barrage of death threats on Twitter, as players who missed their chance appear to be willing to pay a huge premium on eBay for the game. There were over 4500 iPhones with the game loaded on them listed on eBay yesterday morning, with prices up to $20,300. Nguyen Ha Dong, a Vietnamese, Hanoi-based game developer, announced the grounding of the addictive game in a Tweet on Saturday in which he also apologized to Flappy Bird players. “22 hours from now, I will take Flappy Bird down,” Dong said adding: “It is not anything related to legal issues.” “I cannot take this anymore,” he wrote. The move led to a barrage of abuse, including one tweeter who messaged: “YOU BEST NOT BE DELETING FLAPPY BIRD BECAUSE I WILL MURDER YOU IF U DO.”
RIHANNA & BEYONCE MAKE ASKMEN.COM'S "100 MOST DESIRABLE WOMEN" LIST
Last year, Rihanna ranked #3 on Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list of the hottest females and bested Beyonce, who came in at #14. But on a similar list of the "100 Most Desirable Women" just released by AskMen.com, Bey is positioned at #11 while a much younger Rihanna sits at #19. So how does the ranking work? AskMen publisher James Bassil explains, "The final Top 99 list is the product of both reader and staff votes." Meanwhile, Rihanna went from #4 to #19. The duo comprise two of the 10 music artists that make an appearance on the list, which includes Miley Cyrus at #99; Katy Perry at #90; Ariana Grande at #73; Taylor Swift at #30. Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke was placed at #1.
