What a bunch of degenerates infecting people's devices like that.

They aren't "infecting" anything, they are the usual permissions that are on android/iOS. The latest facebook app update requires permission to view text messages to use.

You should also really look into the big companies use of data. Facebook and Google do very similar things, selling personal data for financial benefits.

At first I couldn't care less if it was fake or not. Flappy Bird is Flappy Bird. But this steers me away from it.

Flappy Bird developer made a big fuss about the game being removed so he can continue to make his ~$50,000 a day through ads without having to deal with the bullshit of it being available via iTunes.

Now that there are clones, which has been happening for many, MANY years, all of a sudden, there is an article about personal data being an issue? Looks like Flappy Bird developer isn't too happy that his profits are being touched by others, so he's now spreading bullshit and fooling sites to write up about it.
