The developer of Flappy Bird has decided that it was all too much, speaking on the massive amount of attention he'd received over the game, shutting the app down entirely this weekend.

This afternoon the folks at HTC have let it be known that their original 90-day window for the full update of the HTC One to Android 4.4 KitKat will be missed - if only by a bit. They've suggested that, although they've already (effectively) done their part in actually shipping the software to the carriers in the USA in question, the certification process each of these brands go through after the fact may miss the 90-day window. That goes for AT&T, Spring, Verizon, and T-Mobile USA.
