Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen has had an interesting year.
When 2014 started most people had never heard his name, but by the end of January he was making around $50K a day off his hit smartphone app Flappy Bird!
But then things went downhill!
After allegations of plagiarism, reports of video game addiction, and, well, too much unwanted/overbearing press, the young Vietnamese software designer pulled his wildly popular game off of virtual shelves in February!
But the story doesn't end there!!!
This is some crazy Back to the Future III bullshiz right here.
If you're at SXSW, you have to abandon all of your plans and go to the Trending Vending Lounge, where Oreo, Twitter, and MAYA Design will print you custom Oreos based on topics trending on Twitter.
Wow, we really hope no social media-savvy celebs die during SXSW! That would be one daaaark cookie!
Bonin Bough, vice president of global media for Oreo’s parent company, Mondelez International said this about it:
Dating apps aren't just for people 100 years old! They're also for the young crowd, those who don't want to have to get cootie shots!
You know, like 6-year-olds!
Tindergarten is an app that can help the little ones find adorable little boyfriends or girlfriends with or without cooties. Plus you can just stay away from the icky icky ones!
Their motto leaves us speechless:
We can't believe someone would do this to a kid!!!
A man was arrested in Minneapolis after he shouted racial slurs at an eight-year-old, punched him in the face, and then stole his iPad!
What the EFF.
Apparently, the 32-year-old man, Aaron Wayne Stillday, approached the child after he was leaving his daycare center with the iPad in hand.
He screamed at the child:
"Bark bark bark-bark!" = "We think this is a great idea!" as translated from dog thoughts.
Scientists in Scandinavia are working on technology that would use a headset to allow dogs to communicate their thoughts!
So get ready to hear a lot of banter about squirrels, going for walks, and, you guessed it, more squirrels!
The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery is currently working on No More Woof, a technology that aspires to differentiate various doggy thoughts and then vocalize them in short sentences through a microphone.
Now, whenever you ask your furry roommate, "who let the dogs out?" you may receive this reply from your dog: "Dog let himself out. Dog is smarter than human thinks. Dog watches you sleep."
You know, typical dog thoughts!
The Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery (maybe they could invent or discover a smaller name?) had this to say on their website:
Kevin Bacon may be Footloose, but he is NOT fancy free. In fact, he's pretty peeved!
The Friday The 13th star is fed up with millenials not understanding what life was like in the cold, hard stone age known as… the 1980s!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see Kevin HIGHlariously explain the 6,000 degrees of separation between life then and now!
WHOA! This takes commitment!
Shailene Woodley, star of the upcoming Divergent movie and an openly bisexual actress, has admitted a surprising truth that's incredibly rare nowadays!
She doesn't own a smart phone!
Not even that, Shailene doesn't even have ANY type of cell phone!
But… how does she pass the time when she's bored and waiting for something?!?!
