The mysterious developer of the world's most popular free app, who drew global attention this past weekend with his sudden decision to remove it, tells Forbes that Flappy Bird is dead. Permanently.

This will go down as one of the craziest stories in what I reluctantly call "technology" of all time.

Maybe the guy has all the money he needs. I read somewhere that even though he pulled the game he will still be receiving the money from ads on the phones with the game already installed.

Besides the guy already had money. Or at least his family. Judging from the pictures. Did you think about the fact that he is just simple guy who wishes to have a normal life. Don't judge him until you see what happens. It may be a great human story after all.

And don't talk about countries like Vietnam as if there is nothing but poverty there. There are people with more money you and I will ever have. Together. And we are talking about millions not two or three of them. Google "dual economy" and you might change your interpretation of the world.
