More people know of, and appreciate, Candy Crush as the near pinnacle of human technology than the rovers on Mars. Let that sink in.

To be fair, the technology and infrastructure required to play Candy Crush is absolutely monumental. We've grown so used to smart phones and tablets that we forget that 10 years ago this would have looked like fantastic Star trek technology. Just because you're using it to play stupid games on it doesn't mean it isn't high technology.

FTFA:The reason should be clear by now: Given a level playing field on price with Android competition, many people will choose iPhone.

Well, you let us know when it gets there, chief.

A valid point. Mostly I was lamenting where the appreciation of people goes in regards to technology more so than trying to downplay the tech involved in Candy Crush. Restated, Candy Crush is smart but people who play it are dumb.

I'm on the fence here. On the one hand I got the reference immediately (mainly from the cadence) but MAN, subby, that phrasing is a stretch!

This might sound like I just came back from Mars, but am I correct in surmising that Candy Crush is basically a Bejeweled retread? Why do people play these games, anyway?

hey now, how else are you gonna describe a trek through a barren wasteland? Either with a tune that will get stuck in your head as soon as you think of it, or a "your mom" joke. I went with the classier of the two.

/wish you guys who liked it could vote it up though
