What’s the most frustrating thing about air travel? Besides long security wait times and the tiny seats, the clear winner is lack of free internet access. When you’re stuck on a plane, whether for an hour or ten hours, you want access to your music and games – but in an era of streaming music and connection-dependent gaming, you can easily find yourself without either. No, if you want play while on the plane, you’ll need to come prepared. [Read more…]

Angry birds no more need an introduction. It is one of the most popular games being played today, be it on your mobiles, browsers or desktop. In this piece of writing you will get a brief explanation of this fantastic game. This game is centered on a handful of interesting character and the red bird is the main character. The player has to kick off the birds in a slingshot to knock off the pigs. In the later level and version of the game there are marmosets and macaw birds.
The red birds being the main character are the loveliest one. You will get three red birds in first level which you have to fling in the cardinal to break the wooden beam or the glass beam. Before leaving the sling you have to focus well on the target to get maximum scores. As you leave your first slingshot another red bird pops up and sit on it ready to be flung. Make sure that you target well and cross the level one with the given three red birds. Otherwise your game will be over in the first level only. Remember that the slingshot do not work on the stone planks. If your target is appropriate it may topple the wooden plank and create an opening to enter and bang off the pigs. [Read more…]
Everywhere I go these days, I see something related to Angry Birds. To be honest, I think that the hype has outlived its use a long time ago. However, entrepreneurs are still jumping on the Angry Birds bandwagon. I have seen bags, hats, plushies, pillows, shirts, key rings, and all sorts of other merchandise with the Angry Birds characters in them. Perhaps it is an indication that a good number of people still have an Angry Birds addiction. Perhaps it’s just trying to milk the brand for what it’s worth.
In any case, if you are still one of those of who have an Angry Birds addiction, then you will find this infographic rather interesting. Personally, I do have a soft spot for the birds and the pigs, but I haven’t really played the game in a long time. Maybe finding it a tad difficult for my skills is a huge reason. ;)
The infographic was created by Ask Your Target Market, a market research company. Much of the data found in the infographic is not surprising. Some information may not even be new. There are a couple of things that did get my attention, though.
- People actually admit to having Angry Birds addiction, and 12% of those have deleted the app from their device to “cure” the addiction. Another 12% have considered deleting the app to solve the problem but have never gotten around to doing so.
- According to the infographic, the physics of Angry Birds is real. It’s what you would expect in real life. I beg to disagree. I know I have been labeled as sucking at applied physics, but really, Angry Birds defies the laws of physics in more ways than one!
- If you are single, you are more likely to feel sad or angry after playing Angry Birds. I am sorry, I can’t help but think that there is more to the equation than playing the game!

So do you still have an Angry Birds addiction? I think I have moved on to another social game, which I shall not name lest I get rotten fruits and vegetables thrown at me.
Rovio’s game Angry Birds has been around for a while, and yet the interest level remains high. I am not sure if it is the most played game today (I honestly doubt it), but there is no denying that the game has branched out to more mundane (or not so mundane) things. From t-shirts to flip flops to bags to plushies, we can see the birds of from the game practically everywhere.
It just follows that an Angry Birds cake should be in the picture as well. In fact, you will see Angry Birds cakes all over the Internet. A simple search will give you tons of results – from videos to images to tutorials! No doubt that there are lots of awesome creations out there, but this simple Angry Birds cake made my weekend.
It was my little brother’s 11th birthday yesterday, and since he currently is into football (the kind that you play with your feet) and he loves playing Angry Birds, I thought it would be nice to mix the two themes. I was lucky enough to have seen some pictures of a friend from college on Facebook. As it turns out, she now makes specialty cakes on the side. I told her about the themes and left everything to her. The result was one cool-looking Angry Birds cake. Here’s the view from the top. I just love that slingshot!
I also like the fact that the pig is placed on a “wooden” structure.
In case you like baking, both the wooden structure and the slingshot are made of rice crispies and coated with gum paste. The rice crispies was a brilliant idea because we transported the cake almost 70 kilometers by car and if those items were any heavier, the cake would have been ruined. (Just to be safe we removed the slingshot while on the road.)
Now these babies were the most wanted things during the party. I totally understood those kids, though.
Oh, yeah, the birthday boy loved the cake as well. I think it was his “Wow!” that actually made my weekend, not really the Angry Birds cake. ;)
They promised, and now it’s here. Facebook officially has competition in the “social gaming” genre, thanks to the debut of Google+ Games, which is slowly rolling out to G+ users as we speak. Now this next bit is going to come as a shock, so please sit down before you read any further…
Google+ Games already has Angry Birds.
