You might have seen some Angry Birds arcade machines before, but they’ve just been big-screen ports of the mobile game. There’s an official Angry Birds arcade game coming, and it looks a lot more fun than the Angry Birds you’ve played and are now ignoring steadfastly.
Out in the country, birds are always singing happily. But in the city, they squawk and fly into your face. Now scientists say there’s actually a reason why city birds can be such aggressive jerks — and no, it’s not the same reason why urban humans can be so terrible.
Newly published slides from the NSA and its UK counterpart GCHQ show that the spy agencies delight in scooping up data from "leaky" smartphone apps. That means that you're being watched when you do everything from playing Angry Birds to uploading Facebook photos.
When you were a kid, you probably played with action figures, or something like them. They were awesome. You also played video games, which were similarly awesome. Now they're being brought together in a way that against all odds, isn't horrible and schticky. It actually makes a load of sense.
Does anyone actually play Angry Birds anymore? Whatever. Artist Evan Roth actually had a novel idea with Angry Birds that doesn't include plush pillows and crappy TV shows. He painted all the gestures required to beat 300 levels of Angry Birds. It's beautiful smudging.
Hideaki Matsui and Andrew Spitz, students at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, built the Super Angry Birds desktop slingshot controller as project for their Haptic (tactile feedback) technology class.

Angry Birds Space will be coming out for iOS, Android, Mac and PC next on March 22, the game's developers at Rovio, tell Kotaku.
The Rokus are absolutely phenomenal streaming video boxes. They're affordable, take minimal setup, and pipe in Netflix (most importantly), plus myriad other movie services. In HD! The new wave's out—so what's new? Virtually nothing. And that's fine!
This cake is Angry Birds taken too far. It's like, what compels someone to want to make a photo-realistic interpretation of bird-on-pig violence anyway? And in cake form??

The grey-market app Any Music Downloader knocked Angry Birds from its perch atop iTunes' Tuesday.
