Get These Deals Before They Fly Away!

I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with a game called Flappy Bird.  Created last year, it is a casual game that is very frustrating.  But it was a runaway success, and the creator pulled it from the market because he felt the game was being approached wrong.

The creator is now getting death threats for removing the game.  Others are stepping up, creating clones (there's really nothing to it, I could make it for Linux or Win or my GP2X, two hours monkey work and a cup of coffee).  Some, however, have gotten the install packages that used to be on the app stores and are selling it.

For $500.

No shit.

A 2GB thumb drive with iOS and Android versions is currently listed for $500.  "And you can keep the thumb drive."  Gee, thanks.  Look a little further, another has an 8GB thumb drive with just the iOS for $1,000.

For what is basically a programming exercise.

The only bright side is no one is buying it.
