Angry Birds

Tetris owner calls Angry Birds a fad, keeps a straight face

Quick: name the number one game on Android right now. Did you guess Asteroids? Pac-Man? Perhaps Pong? Nope, it's Angry Birds, as even a casual gamer and any holiday shopper could tell you, now that its branded merchandise adorns the shelves of nearly every retailer in the US. Speaking to Industry Gamers, Henk Rogers took offense to this fact, calling out Rovio's aviary opus. "Angry Birds is cute and everybody plays it for a while but they get burned out and move on and they will play another game." Rogers aught to know: he's the manager for The Tetris Company, which he owns in partnership with the game's original creator Alexey Pajitnov.

Facebook tops Nielsen’s list of most popular Android apps

I know, I know, stop the presses: Facebook is the most popular app on Android. The statistical wizards at Nielsen reached this conclusion based on active usage, not total downloads, noting that the recently-updated Facebook app has the most penetration across all of Android's user groups after the Android Market itself. The fact is at least a little surprising, since Facebook beat out Google's entrenched apps like Search, Gmail and Google Maps, which all had slightly lower user groups in every category.

Angry Birds send Seasons greetings via the Samsung Galaxy Note

Without a doubt, Rovio's Angry Birds is the darling of the mobile gaming world. It's sold millions of downloads, made at least as much in advertising revenue, and is now a household name amongst people who couldn't pick Mario and Sonic out of a lineup. The most prudent thing that Rovio has done is release Angry Birds Seasons, periodic themes updates with brand-new levels and elements to keep the simple physics game fresh. Now they've teamed up with Samsung for a little cross-promotion of everyone's crossover device, the Samsung Galaxy Note.

"Ham'o'ween!" pits the Birds against their old enemies in 45 new levels of physics-based carnage.

The Nook Color Android-powered eReader didn’t start out to become an Android tablet.

Angry Birds Seasons Next Update Dubbed Summer Pignic

As the title suggests, there will be another update to the brightest of all Angry Birds games, Angry Birds Seasons.
