Providing you have root access on your Android device, here is how you can alter your high score, as well as other tips and tricks for Flappy Bird (the game may seem simple, but there’s indeed an art behind it, no matter how ridiculous).

Should I diss Facebook?

Facebook has turned ten years old and many of us have been with Facebook the entire way. You can even view your own journey in their new ‘look back’ videos, a sort of slide show of your most liked posts, pictures and big life events. But Facebook has a dark side that is becoming more and more evident: ad placements, commercials auto-playing and the worst of all, your private messages could be spied on by the NSA or another secret agency. Some users are considering getting rid of FB and going for another social network. How do you feel about Facebook? Are you as distrusting as some of your users are?
