I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.
The creator of Flappy Bird is taking down his hit game, despite its massive popularity. Crap, there goes my Saturday.

BBM is proving to be quite a bit more popular than actual BlackBerry phones

  • 10M users signed up for BlackBerry’s BBM service during the first 24 hours that the traditionally BlackBerry-exclusive messaging service was available for download on Android and iOS last week.
  • 20M new users joined the BBM service during its first week outside of the BlackBerry ecosystem, bringing the new total to 80 million, a 33 percent increase from the 60 million previously registered for BBM. source

» By the way: Apparently one of the suitors for the on-the-market company is Facebook. Ponder that for a few minutes.

"Breaking" news: Companies that sell smartphones are really petty

  • last week Apple, facing a potential ban of some of its older iOS devices, successfully petitioned the Obama administration to veto a decision by the International Trade Commission that would have banned the import of the company’s devices into the U.S., due to the company violating patents its competitor, Samsung, owned. The Obama administration said that the patents were fundamental to the creation mobile devices and were being abused by Samsung. It was the first time the president vetoed an ITC patent decision since 1987.
  • this week The tables have turned. In another patent case involving Samsung’s Galaxy devices, the ITC found the company in violation of Apple’s patents, putting them in danger of an import ban. One major difference here: The patents Apple was accused of violating? Seen as essential. The patents Samsung’s accused of violating? Not essential, though Samsung says it can easily modify software to get around the issue. Anyone like it when companies fight in public? source

techcrunch:

I think we can all agree this is better than Apple’s iOS 7 redesign, right?


97,000 views of this photo on Dribbble, which is a record. But this points to the problem the upcoming iteration of the iOS visual interface currently has. Apple added too many thin lines — a no-no when trying to simplify — when really they needed to focus on simple shapes. And that an undergraduate design student came up with this is pretty impressive.

This is supposedly what iOS7 looks like, according to 9to5Mac. Note: This was created by someone who mocked up the design based on something they saw, which is why it looks like something a 10-year-old designed. By the way, WWDC is today and E3 is this week.

Some design agency spent a lot of time coming up with a rough concept of what iOS 7 probably isn’t going to look like. But let’s just say it looks kind of cool.

That awkward moment where your company’s new VP literally steamrolled your company’s most popular product because of a business decision your company made that affected his old company. Such is the tale of former Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch, who just joined Apple after spending much of the past few years publicly bashing Apple’s stance on Flash.
