The developer of the runaway hit ‘Flappy Bird’ made good on his promise to take down the simple, yet frustrating game from iOS and Google Play online stores. He was reportedly making 50 thousand dollars a day from in-game advertising revenue and tweeted “I cannot take this anymore,” preferring his previously simple life.
If you had already downloaded the game, it will still work on your mobile device. Though if you are still seeing ads at the top of your screen, someone is still making money.
Happy 2014 Silicon Valley and the Bay Area! No Scarlet Plague has stricken the Bay Area in 2013 and no dot com crash has hit as of yet. But some of the signs of a bubbly dot com bubble are appearing. From a frothy, unsustainable real estate market that has pushed rent costs higher and higher, to increased traffic of Tesla Model S 4 door sedans piloted by GoogleGlassHole drivers running up and down the 101. It’s here. The Tech Bubble. When will it pop? No one knows. Yet. Though some of the high flyers of the Tech World in this bubble are different from the Pets.com era of the past. Some of these booming tech companies in SiliconCali are actually profitable and are minting money as I type.
