11/30/2011, I know that there are plenty of Angry Birds fans out there, otherwise, how else can you explain the phenomenon of flinging a pissed off avian friend towards certain doom just to perform a kamikaze dive in the general direction of green pigs? Well, I suppose Rovio is far from finished when it comes to milking this cash, er, bird to the maximum, hence their latest attempt at commercialization has […]
11/18/2011, I don’t know about you, but cats tend to get at birds more often than dogs do, but then again, pooches prefer a game of catch anytime. Enter this new wave of Angry Birds craze, where both cats and dogs are literally able to take a bite out of those avian friends, making me wonder whether green pigs are their sole targets after that. Hartz Mountain Corporation will be rolling […]
11/10/2011, Everyone with a modern smartphone would definitely have heard of Angry Birds before, and hey, even if mobile gaming is not your cup of tea, surely the name Angry Birds has passed by your mind from time to time during a conversation? Well, the US Border Patrol might get the help of “Angry Birds” – which is basically a drone that has been specially developed to take down drug-running ultralight […]
11/02/2011, What happens when you are upset at a group of green, mean looking pigs for stealing your eggs? Why, you end up getting incensed – and have a hit game on your hands to boot. We’re talking about the Angry Birds franchise by Rovio that has already hit 500,000,000 downloads and counting across all platforms. This makes Angry Birds one of the most downloaded games in the history of gaming, […]
11/02/2011, If you can’t get enough of Angry Birds (it sure feels like most of the world can’t), you might want to consider a vacation to China sometime next year. Rovio has announced that it plans to open a series of Angry Birds branded retail stores in China within the coming 12 months. The reason for the store opening in China has been due to the number of unofficial merchandise being […]
10/26/2011, Angry Birds must be really, really popular if it were to “star” on the International Space Station (ISS), as a couple of iPads will be travelling in two upcoming Russian space launches later this month. Not only that, a stuffed toy doll of the red bird from Rovio Mobile’s “Angry Birds” puzzle game will also follow the next trio of crew members who are set to depart Earth for the […]
10/21/2011, Some people have too much time on their hands, and while it’s not up to me to judge how they spend it, I always enjoy checking out what interesting things they can come up with. For example, this robot created by a guy named Jason Huggins. Called the BitBeamBot, it is made from balsa/basswood, LEGO, and servo motors. It features some sort of pointing “finger” that is covered with a […]
10/21/2011, When it comes to Halloween, there is one color which should stand out from a dreary black background – yes, that is right, we’re talking about bright orange. Why so, you ask? Well, with all the pumpkins out there being carved out to end up as a Jack ‘O Lantern, it makes perfect sense, no? Having said that, Rovio keeps up with tradition by offering the Angry Birds special Halloween […]
10/19/2011, So we know that the Angry Birds franchise will be further expanded with the presence of another bird, a movie (which Rovio obviously hope will be a hit) and a cookbook, although I am not quite sure whether the birds themselves will take too kindly to recipes that contain the use of eggs. Well, just how popular is this particular franchise, anyways? It seems that Angry Birds has been downloaded […]
10/19/2011, Fans of the Angry Birds game, if you just can’t get enough of the game, Rovio will be stepping things up this Halloween with the addition of a new bird, whose image can be seen partially on the Angry Birds Facebook page. It is unknown what this new bird’s ability is just yet, but it is expected to make an appearance in the game’s Halloween edition, which will be launched […]
10/12/2011, So we know that the Angry Birds game is popular, so much so that there have been so many spin-offs based on the game, both in the official and unofficial capacity. For example you will be able to find Angry Bird apparel, soft toys, figurines, speakers, phone covers, and even an amusement park based on the game! Now it looks like there’s even an Angry Birds tablet available.
10/03/2011, I’m not sure whether to call the Angry Birds franchise a cash cow or a golden goose – I think that the latter would fit the description far better. Well, there is a new board game from Mattel that has arrived in time for the winter holiday shopping season – where it is aptly known as the Angry Birds On Thin Ice Board Game.
09/22/2011, Rovio is certainly milking their Angry Birds franchise for all it is worth, having partnered with Starbucks in order to bring Birds leaderboards and promotions into stores, and now we have word that Rovio will also deliver Angry Birds goodness to Formula 1. If you want to see some really pissed off feathered friends at a racetrack, then you might want to make your way down to the night race […]
09/20/2011, Rovio is certainly attempting to milk the goose that lays the golden egg, so to speak, to the maximum by exploring opportunities in retail space. Rumor has it that the Finnish mobile gaming studio will be work hand in hand with global coffee chain Starbucks in order to introduce promotions, virtual good sales and electronic leaderboards that will highlight customers’ top scores. It would be interesting to see local and […]
