AllWeLike iPad Game of the Year: Angry Birds

Written on January 01, 2011 by Chris Martin

It has hit 42 million downloads in a span of only a year and it's already on Apple's most downloaded app for 2010. How can we NOT ignore those bushy eyebrowed balls of feathers they call birds who are hellbent on taking back their eggs from evil pigs?

They’re feathery, they’re round, they got the features of a bird, and they’ve got eyebrows that says they’re dead serious. These are the birds that nabbed our merciless fingers away from our daily lives and into the iPad tablet so we can spend hours and hours of gameplay. And what better way to get some revenge than sling them into the air as human (or aviary) sacrifices in order to defeat the relentless evil… wait for it… PIGS. Yes, we’re all hooked with Angry Bird-noia.

Motorola’s Tablet Evolution Hints Honeycomb

Written on December 22, 2010 by Chris Martin

It has begun. Apple and Samsung may have their multi-billion dollar knees shaking right now as Motorola unveils its teaser for the CES 2011. And there's nothing else to say but 'Whoah'.

Geared with its new red logo, Motorola takes on the competition as they begin to enter the tablet market with a delightful and provocative trailer that shoots down other brands in a very entertaining and humorous concept of evolution. They called iPad “a bigger iPhone” and Samsung Galaxy “an Android OS for a phone,” and now they’re taking it up a notch as they teased a hint of Honeycomb thanks to a random bee stinging the Motorola logo and Andy Rubin’s demonstration of the next-gen version of Android on a Motorola tablet at D: Dive Into Mobile.

Watch the teaser after the break!

iPhone vs Android – The Saga Continues [GRAPH]

Written on December 16, 2010 by B Waldorf

The saga of iPhone vs Android continues with a new boost. Apparently, Android seems to overthrow Apple in the mobile OS and smartphone aspects. But the course of events is still unpredictable.

Looks like the rivalry between the iPhone and Android will still travel a long way from here. Looking through mobile OS statistics of the two mobile companies over the past few months, it seems Android is on the lead.

A recent list of the top 30 mobile devices showed how Android once again smashed Apple’s iOS devices. Though there have been a neck-on-neck fight between the two.

The data gathered by mobile ad shop Millennial Media also showed that iOS and Android devices tied for the total number of impressions last november. Each OS gathered exactly 38% of the month’s mobile impressions.

On the first tally, when devices are broken into categories based on the OS alone, Apple took the glory. But iPads and iPod touch devices were out of the picture only smartphones were taken into consideration, Android came out on top.

Android hardware went up above the vitality of operating system. In fact, 13 out of 30 top mobile devices as measured by Millenia were run by Android. Samsung and Motorola were the top manufacturers behind Apple. The original Droid stood-out hit among all the Android smartphones on the list.

However, the competitiveness of Apple didn’t end there. Apple’s iOS devices showed huge advantages in numbers. Both companies would have won in the mobile OS department. The only question left unanswered is who among the two mobile companies will be able to sustain their spots as top players in the tech industry.

See after the skip how this competition is presented in graphical form.
