Angry Birds Space  (Source: multiplayerblog.mtv.com)
Angry Birds Space has hit 50 million downloads in just 35 days

Angry Birds has undoubtedly become one of the most popular mobile games of all time, but it looks like the latest version, Angry Birds Space, is claiming the top spot for fastest growing mobile game ever.

Rovio announced that Angry Birds Space, which launched last month, has hit 50 million downloads in just 35 days. This breaks all records any previous mobile game has hit, making Angry Birds Space the fastest growing mobile game of all time.

"We extend our deepest gratitude to all fans of Angry Birds everywhere," said Rovio in a statement. "While numbers like this certainly say something about the popularity of Angry Birds, for us the main goal is to keep creating fun new experiences that everybody can enjoy! We just launched the first free update for Angry Birds Space, with plenty more surprises in stock."

Rovio brought Angry Birds to space with the help of NASA engineers like Don Pettit. PC, Mac, iOS and Android users can launch various types of birds at the enemy pigs using a whole new set of moves based on a zero-gravity environment in Angry Birds Space. The new game features 60 levels with six new characters and powers.

In addition to the game's release, toys, books and other merchandise have become available to the public in order to promote the new space venture.

Windows Phone Is 'Beautiful', Better Than Android: Steve Wozniak
http://www.pcworld.com/article/254707/windows_phon...

Steve Wozniak prefers his Windows Phone to Android, but the iPhone is still his favourite. The Apple co-founder believes that Microsoft has hired a former Apple employee to work on the Windows Phone user interface. Either that, or Steve Jobs has been reincarnated at Microsoft.

End result "the iPhone is still his favorite"
Especially if he wants to play Angry Birds Space.

Who would want to play this game specifically made for retards anyway... oh yeah, iSheep users.

And who cares what Woz says, of course he's going to say he still prefers the Apple toy. He only helped make the company and still has a stake in it.

Oh i love how Woz says things like:

"I'm just shocked, I haven't seen anything yet that isn't more beautiful than the other platforms"

And:

"I'll be carrying the Windows Phone everywhere."

And has even said (but not quoted on the site):

"apps looks so much better on Windows Phone than on IOS or Android"

But then it's like something clicks in his head reminding him that that he's in the Apple camp. So he's basically like:

"Oh yeah... erm... still like my iPhone best. Yep!" *cough*

The phone that is the best is the one that is best for you .

I personally hate MS for their utterly beyond careless behavior on security and their anti-competitive actions during my time using them from 1992-2004. I don't like Apple for their behavior and attitude of treating me like a retard.

Those personal reasons, however, will not prevent me from recommending though what is best for others.

Doesn't this apply to Apple as well?
