eBay removes listings of phones with Flappy Bird installed

0. phoneArena 11 Feb 2014, 14:00 posted on

You thought you had won the lottery. Being the kind of person that you are, you jumped on the Flappy Bird bandwagon before everyone else, and you were slightly amused when it went viral. And then, when Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen decided to pull the game from app stores because of its addictiveness, you patted yourself on the back for being so prescient...

What I don't understand is were these people just going to sell these phones with it still being logged in under their Apple ID instead of wiping the phone like you should do before selling it? How else would the game stay on there unless you're logged in under an ID that downloaded the game? Also, would the buyer not want to log in under their own ID. This stuff got so stupid my head hurts...

"I'm going to buy a phone for multiple times higher than list price so I can play with botox-mouthed bird"
My mind can't get over how stupid can one be.

Saw a few listings on craigslist for $5000 for a IP5c and Note 3 both with this dumb game installed. Who's more the fool, the seller or the buyer?

But when I read (right here on PhoneArena of course), I read your Flappy Bird eBay article about a day and a half late after I've seen numerous of other sites/fb. Still late to the ball game PA, but I still love you guys.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
