The Ballad of Flappy Bird

Posted by on February 10th, 2014

Read to the tune of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’

flappy3Just a yellow bird
Flappin’ in a lonely world
He took a green warp pipe
Onto the App Store
Just a small town dev
Lookin’ for some extra cred
He took a green warp pipe
Onto the App Store

Suddenly a download boom
Everybody seems confused
But for nothing they can share his flight
It goes on and on and on and on

Copies lurking
Up and down the Top Free List
But they aren’t really
Flappy Bird
Mobile gamers
Livin’ just to find distraction
Flappin’ their way through those pipes

Sportin’ ads to pay the bills
People start to have their fill
There are stirrings of shady reviews
And cloned gameplay
Some were nice
Some were rude
Some decided to exclude
Oh the drama never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

Haters lurking
Up and down the RSS feeds
Their anger is the
Final straw
Flappy Bird is
Pulled off the App Store rather fast
And now it’s up on eBay

Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to that feelin’
Flappy players
Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to that feelin’
It’s still on your account

To a ‘biker,’ a motorcycle is far more than just a form of transportation, it’s a tool for fun and enjoyment as much as it is for getting from A to B. It’s likely, then, that bikers who happen to also own an iPhone may wish to keep track of all kinds of details about their motorcycles right on their device. So here’s GoodRide(SM), a free app that promises to do just that — and it’s been released by an insurance company, of all people.

With it’s latest version, US insurance providers Allstate have made GoodRide(SM) a very neat little tool to behold, whether you’re a customer of their insurance policies or not. There’s a bunch of features included within, helping the user’s bike journeys go off without a hitch. It allows for planning of a journey before setting off, will help with finding the nearest gas station along the way and also assists with being as safe ass possible by way of a pre-ride checklist — reminding the rider to check their brakes, lights, tires and such before actually jumping on a riding off into the sunset.

That’s just the start, though, as upon finishing a journey there’s the option to check how many miles we ridden, how long it took to get there and it’s even possible to attach a photo and share the journey with friends and family by way of Facebook or Twitter. Version 1.1 also brings a maintenence log into the app, allowing one to remember exactly when the bike was last serviced or the oil was last topped up. And finally, should the worst happen and the bike breaks down mid-trip a simple press of the button will put a phone call straight through to their Good Hands roadside assitance department to send out one of their service trucks, specially equipped to deal with motorcycles.
