'Angry Birds' Migrating to Facebook This March

By now, it's pretty clear that no platform is safe from the 'Angry Birds.' According to All Facebook, a new version of the game will debut on Facebook sometime in March. It's unclear exactly what new features the Facebook version of the pig-smashing, flying birds game will have, but Rovio CEO Mikael Hed's use of the word "collaborative" to describe it suggests a new social component. In a profi...

Dorky Dad Bakes Son 'Angry Birds' Birthday Cake, Lazy Parents Roll Eyes

If your kids are currently in the room, it's probably in your best interest to refrain from watching this video. No, it's not because of bad language or nudity or violence. It's because, if they see this monstrosity of a birthday cake (and working model of 'Angry Birds'), they will not rest until you construct it. And that would take us months....

Immigration Advocates Upset Over 'Smuggle Truck: Operation Immigration' Game

'Smuggle Truck: Operation Immigration' is a new game that invites players to smuggle illegal immigrants across the U.S. border. Owlchemy Labs, the Boston-based company that developed the game, is hoping to release 'Smuggle Truck' in March as an app for the iPhone and iPad, but the company's proposed launch is facing stiff resistance from immigrant advocacy groups. The game's objective is prett...

BWAAK! 'Angry Birds' to Slingshot Into Your Teevee

Haven't had enough 'Angry Birds' yet? (Seriously? You haven't? What's wrong with you?) Well, get ready, campers: the pig-smashing avian avengers are coming to TV. That's the plan, at least. Rovio CEO Mikael Hed told the British TV industry news site C21Media that, with the game coming to desktop PCs and game consoles, and Mattel working on a board game (not to mention the plush toys and T-shirts)...

8th Grader's 'Bubble Ball' Unseats 'Angry Birds' on Apple's Top Free Apps List

Thanks to a tween, the avian reign on the iPhone is over. According to All Things Digital, a game created by a 14-year-old boy unseated 'Angry Birds Seasons' from its spot atop the App Store's Top Free Apps list. 'Bubble Ball,' which 8th-grader Robert Nay coded on his own, became the App Store's #1 free game late last week. Nay spent more than a month using Ansca Mobile's Corona SDK to write more...

Mac App Store Launches With Official Twitter App, Desktop 'Angry Birds'

In the midst of CES mania, Apple kicked out a couple updates this morning. The Mac App Store brings the popular iOS App Store model to the desktop, assaulting office productivity by launching 'Angry Birds' and an official Twitter app (formerly Tweetie) on Snow Leopard. If you fired up your Mac Software Update this morning, you may have noticed the Mac OS X 10.6.6 update, which is unfortunately th...

'Angry Birds' Lands on PS3 And PSP Next Week

It shouldn't come as any surprise, that 'Angry Birds' is continuing its invasion infection spread to any and every device that is capable of running it. Next up are the PS3 and PSP, which will both get access to the destructive, physics-based game via a PlayStation Store update, coming this week. But the real question is, when will it get ported to our beloved Commodore 64?...

Mighty Eagle Now Available for 'Angry Birds' Players (With iDevices)

Christmas has come early for impatient 'Angry Birds' addicts, because the Mighty Eagle has just landed in the App Store. As expected, the new feathered projectile allows players to skip particularly frustrating levels in one fell swoop, and pick up extra achievements along the way. The catch, however, is that the eagle can only be used once every hour, and it's not free. The basic app update is f...

25 Best Android Apps Under $1

You may be on the road less traveled, but, if you are part of the Android movement, you are ahead of the smartphone curve. The platform's many benefits are offset, though, by real setbacks -- like the fact that Android owners aren't shepherded by the Draconian App Store monitored by the Big Brothers at Apple. We are freer, but we are also subjected to a load of crap, like cross-platform communica...

25 Best iPhone Apps Under $1

The holidays are expensive enough. Why spend extra cash on tricking out your iPhone with sweet new apps? Besides, there are zillions of selections on the market; how can you even figure out which ones you really need -- or better yet, which ones won't chew through your battery and destroy your phone? Wouldn't it be great if there were a list of iPhone apps that were not only cheap, but essential,...

Good news for those who enjoy dishing out avian justice to egg-thieving pigs: 'Angry Birds Christmas' will soon be upon us -- a free update for those who coughed up the $0.99 for 'Angry Birds Halloween.'

'Angry Birds Christmas' Coming to iPhones This December

The crew at Rovio better slow down. We know they want to cash in on the runaway success of 'Angry Birds,' but with Halloween done and now a Christmas edition confirmed for December (sorry Android fans, iOS only), it's only a matter of time before the developer is pumping out 'Angry Birds: Arbor Day Edition.' And nobody wants to see that....

Angry Birds to Get PS3, Wii, Xbox Release and Multiplpayer Mode

Late last week at the Social Gaming Summit in London, Rovio, the developer of 'Angry Birds,' announced plans to bring its wildly popular series to all three major gaming consoles. While multiplayer gameplay isn't finalized, Rovio CEO Peter Vesterbacka explained that it's a priority, and will resemble the retro 'Worms' series. The lingering question is, can a game optimized for touch-screen device...
