The retro-looking, infuriatingly hard mobile game from Vietnam became the top app in 80 countries, generating tens of millions of downloads and a media frenzy that drove its creator to remove the app from iTunes completely. The Flappy Bird genius, Dong Nguyen, claimed the app was too addictive for some consumers and he could no longer sleep because of its gigantic success. More →

A flop for the ages: Fire Phone estimated to have sold 35,000 units at most

By about 11 hours ago.

As many people have predicted, Amazon’s Fire Phone looks like a flop of the first order, although we’ll never know for sure just how big of a flop it’s been since Amazon wisely won’t release sales figures for the device. To make up for this lack of concrete data, The Guardian’s Charles Arthur has done some guess work using data provided by both Chitika and ComScore to come up with an estimate for Fire Phone sales and the numbers are even uglier than we could have imagined.

Social Media Critics

On social media, you’re more than just a critic

On social media, you’re more than just a critic

By on August 26, 2014 at 4:15 PM.

Judgmentalism has been a staple of societal life for longer than I’m even capable of understanding, and as such, folks have been handing out criticisms for just as long. It’s common practice for creators to look down on other creations, and moreover, to bestow opinions on current events without ever being asked. It’s an issue that has surely been around for some time, but it feels as if social media has only served to add fuel to the proverbial fire.

Talking heads of the tube were bad enough, but at least there were only a smattering of those. Now, we have billions of those same heads, and unlike television, their words remain linkable, searchable, and retweetable ad infinitum. More →

Man jailed for 33 months for pirating ‘Fast and Furious 6′

By on August 26, 2014 at 3:55 PM.

The British justice system can occasionally deliver as stern messages as any Texas or Mississippi municipality. A judge in the idyllic town of Wolverhampton has just sentenced a 25-year old man named Philip Danks to 33 months in prison for recording “Fast and Furious 6″ at a movie theater and distributing a pirated version of the film. The judge explained his harsh decision by referring to the “bold, arrogant and cocksure” manner of the accused. That seems to be an apt description, since Mr. Danks promoted his illicit endeavor in his Facebook profile. More →

Verizon isn’t the only Internet service provider that thinks very little of our intelligence. Ars Technica has found that Comcast has admitted to the state regulators in New York that it levels penalties against some customers in select areas who use up more than an allotted amount of data per month… but it insists that these plans do not constitute data caps.
