The creator of 'Flappy Bird' removed the popular game from app stores because, according to a tweet he shared, he couldn't take it anymore. That's open to interpretation, but Patrick Jones (@Patrick_E_Jones) guesses it could be due to hate tweets the creator was getting. Video provided by Buzz60

Starbucks to Roll Out App Update in Effort to Fix Security Flaw

TheStreet (Jan. 17, 2014) — After security researcher Daniel Wood disclosed earlier in the week that the Starbucks app stores user names, email addresses, passwords and even geolocation information in unencrypted, clear text, Starbucks executives confirmed that app users' information could be visible to anyone with access to the phone if it was connected to a computer. So, if a user's phone was stolen, that information could be accessed by the thief. The company said it will soon roll out an update for its app to make it more secure, though it said the app for Google's Android operating system does not contain the vulnerability.
