As expected, developer Dong Nguyen has removed his popular Flappy bird app from the App Store as of around Noon ET.  While the app still shows up in iTunes, it isn’t available for download. Those who’ve downloaded it already will be able to continue playing.

It isn’t exactly clear why Nguyen removed the popular app but it seems like the Developer didn’t find the negatives of being in the limelight to his liking. In a series of Tweets yesterday, Nguyen said that “I cannot take this anymore.” and “I can call ‘Flappy Bird’ is a success of mine. But it also ruins my simple life. So now I hate it.”

It is estimated that the app was earning him hundreds of thousands of dollars per day.  He said he wasn’t interested in selling the app and it will likely spawn many ripoffs.

In the meantime, if you are after some more of Dong Nguyen’s work, Super Ball Juggling and Shuriken Block are at the moment still in the App Store. expand full story

Virgin Mobile is knocking another 20% off their marked down iPhones yielding the lowest prices we’ve ever seen on the unsubsidized phones (that’s another 10% less than this weekend’s mention).

Note Apple charges $650 for an unlocked iPhone 5s and $550 for an iPhone 5c so savings is around $200/iPhone. While the iPhones are unsubsidized, Virgin does offer extremely competitive plans on the Sprint 4G LTE network starting at $30/month for unlimited text/data. expand full story

The bundle includes:

If you are feeling generous, 10% of all sales go to a charity of you choice – so get in early, and get on the leaderboard (which qualifies you to enter a drawing for a MacBook Air). expand full story

This morning, Bloomberg Businessweek has published the entirety of its interview with Apple CEO Tim Cook. Earlier this week, the magazine gave us a look at its conversation with Cook, Jony Ive, and Craig Federighi, though today’s article is a much more extensive look at the thoughts from Cook.

Notably, Cook discusses the new fingerprint scanner Touch ID system in the iPhone 5s. Cook seems to enjoy that users can unlock their iPhone with the touch of a fingerprint, but he seems to imply that purchases with Touch ID are the bigger picture. He notes that Touch ID can now be used to download items from Apple’s online media stores, but it seems that purchases will become even more important as the technology continues to develop:
