Those birds are still angry, you know the ones I’m talking about. But it’s not because of lack of new content, features or platform support. Nope, Rovio is on top of that. Angry Birds will be celebrating a new Seasons edition soon, Easter, with 15 new levels. The birds will also be getting a syncing feature and will be landing on Windows Phone 7 in late May.
Easter should be a pretty important holiday for Angry Birds (what with all the eggs). We have some of the first screenshots. Read more »
Okay we got carried away a bit there with the title. You see the video-capable Skype for Android version really appeared online, but it seems unable to run on anything, but the HTC Thunderbolt. So unless you have purchased the LTE-packing smartphone, you will need to wait for the official version or at least another leak to experience the video-call goodies of the new droid Skype.
Anyway we got to see the first review of the application thanks to the guys at AndroidCommunity.com. Except for the addition of video-calling to other mobile users and desktop clients alike there isn’t too many updates brought by the new version. The four tabs remain as they were and work just the way they used to. Read more »
Microsoft unveiled Internet Explorer 10 – they showed it off at the MIX11 developer conference, which started yesterday at Las Vegas. They did a demo, with Windows and IE10 running on an NVIDIA Tegra platform (with ARM processor). Yup, that’s W-i-n-d-o-w-s on an ARM CPU.
The first Platform Preview of Internet Explorer 10 is available for download. Wait, didn’t I just test IE9 last month? Alright, the bigger the version number, the merrier I suppose… You can ask Google, they’ll confirm. Read more »

So far, it’s only a tech demo, guys, but it sure looks promising. The guys over at EHCI Research Group have found a rather clever way to track the movement of the user’s head with the front facing camera and, along with some software magic, have managed to create an impressive real-time 3D experience on Apple’s own iPad.

We’ve been expecting this one for a long time. And it’s finally here. The Motorola Atrix has come to our office and we’re eagerly working on a full review.
The Moto Atrix means business with its dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1GB worth of RAM and qHD (540×960) resolution. It’s a flagship by any standards and we’ll be testing whether it’s up to the task of competing with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S II and LG Optimus 2X.
We actually have the Atrix 4G variety – that’s the model for the US market but there are no important differences between the two models – except perhaps the supported 3G bands.
We have a video demo and unboxing for you guys to look at while you wait for the review. Without any further ado, here it is. Read more »

The touch SDK aims at giving developers the tools to create Photoshop apps for iOS, Android and BlackBerry. This way basically every tablet-maker (save for HP, for now) will be able to take advantage and use its tablets for professional Photoshop work. Read more »

We stumbled into this photo from the Ovi Store and were nothing short of stunned to find a Symbian application demoed with iPhone screenshots on a Nokia device.
We are wondering if this is an honest mistake, or a purposeful act by a disgruntled group of workers from the Symbian division of the company. Just kidding, aight? Read more »
