iPad Mini with Flappy Bird sells for $8K on eBay amid listing takedowns

Yesterday I was berating my kids for not previously downloading the oh-so-popular Flappy Bird app that has been a big source of controversy lately. I only learned about the app being removed from the app store from a group of carpool kids that I drive to and from school – and my ears perked up when one of them told me that some Flappy Birds “try-hards” were buying used devices with the app still loaded on them for around $1,000 on eBay.
