Farmville Crops Up on iPad

Paul Lilly

Show of hands, how many of you play Farmville? Now keep your hands up if you own or plan to purchase an iPad. Everybody else, go grab a gun and shoot everyone in the leg that has their hands up. We kid, we kid -- natural selection will take care of itself.

In the meantime, all you iPad toting, Farmville loving miscreants can have the best of both worlds, as Zynga announced its popular game is now available on Apple's magical tablet.

Farmville is already being played by more than 60 million people around the wold, with players receiving in excess of 500,000 virtual gifts in the game every 24 hours, Zynga says. But for all its success, Farmville has been tied to privacy concerns on Facebook, with the Wall Street Journal claiming it's one of the titles blatantly ignoring users' privacy settings by sharing personal info with advertisers. Prior to that, Zynga CEO Mark Pincus admitted to sleazy business tactics early on in attempt to earn a buck, such as offering "users poker chips if they downloaded this zwinky toolbar" that he himself said he "couldn't get rid of it" once installed.
