There is no doubt that Angry Birds is possibly the greatest mobile video game yet. It is simple, yet addictive – I have personally wasted hours of my time in pursuit of the coveted three stars for each level. What is happening lately with Rovio’s creation though is even more impressive – it appears that the game has already become a part of today’s pop culture. The latest commercial from T-Mobile is a living proof of this fact – it brings the popular characters from the video game to life in the middle of Barcelona.
As you can see, the live setup is quite impressive. There is a booth with a smartphone in the middle Read more »
As a company, DELL is not particularly well known for the design of its products. Aside the Adamo series of laptops, most of the tech giant’s creations are utilitarian by design. The leak of a 7″ tablet prototype however, is about to make me completely change my mind about the design philosophy of the Texas based company – with its sliding-out, split QWERTY keyboard, it is simply gorgeous.
There is no information on the OS which the tablet will be running Read more »

After following the smartphone announcements lately, I kind of wish I lived in Korea.
