Angry Birds Now Free For Chrome


The popular game Angry Birds made by Roxio is now available online and can be played on Google Chrome. This is great news for every one who doesn't have an iOS device or Android phone. The online game isn't a trial version, and has all the features as the full version for mobile devices. So Angry Bird lovers, enjoy sling-shotting birds and killing pigs right in your Google Chrome browser window! There is a SD (Standard Definition) and a HD (High Definition) version.

The game is available here. I got more screenshots. :) They are from the Angry Birds Chrome website.


As of right now, it is still in BETA. There is a lot of room for improvement. I played it for a little while and I noticed that if I refresh my page or switch the resolution, it will restart my game. If they can do a cookie or account system that allows you to save the game, that would be great.

$25 Computer and the Paper Thin Cellphone!

Hey guys, as a special treat, I will be combining two articles today. I will be combining both because they probably won't be that long, but please enjoy.

$25 Computer Prototype

The picture you see above is a prototype of a $25 computer. It was created by David Braben as a project to help not-so-wealthy students to get computer to use for school and learning. The laptop runs on a Linux-based OS. The computer looks a lot more different than what you'd expect a computer to be. The computer is approximately the size of an USB flash-drive. The computer it self has an HDMI port for a TV (monitor) connection, and several USB ports for a mouse and a keyboard. Since the price of the computer is so little (about $25), David Braben is hoping schools can afford some of these to help students who are part of poor families to have computers for school and learning. The computer has a 700-MHz ARM11 processor (faster than the iPhone 3G) and 128MB of SDRAM. Extra storage can be added by connecting a SD card in the built-in SD slot.

Paper Thin Cellphone

Although  this phone will not be in stores for a while, the prototype of a paper thin cellphone is already invented. It is really paper thin, can be bent, and is roughly the size of a credit card. The phone is call the PaperPhone. Instead of using glass like old phones, this new phone uses this ultra flexible film which is more flexible than credit cards. The display is made from e-ink. Although touch screen will probably still be the main way of interacting with the device, there maybe other ways of interacting with the device like bending the device.

Now for my opinions on this device... I don't think videos will really work on a phone like this because of the e-ink display. Other than that, I think it would be a great idea! You can probably fit a phone like this right in your wallet. How would ringtones and vibrations work with this? :/ Can they fit a good speaker on this?

White iPhone 4 Goes On Sale Worldwide

(Credit: Apple Picture from CNET News)
The white iPhone 4 went on sale Thursday 4/28/2011 worldwide. Apple said the delay was due to the difficulties of manufacturing the alternate color. Apple did not go into more detail. Rumors say it was because the supplier in China had trouble mixing the die, while others said the white color interfered with the operation of the LED flash on the camera. What ever the difficulty was, Apple fans are very excited because it is finally released.

The white iPhone 4 is priced at the same price as the black iPhone 4 and has the same feature as the black iPhone 4. The only difference is that the white iPhone 4 is white and the black iPhone 4 is black.

The white iPhone 4 also features a front facing VGA camera for Facetime and a high resolution Retina display. The main camera on the back is 5 MP and is capable of taking high resolution photos and record 720p HD video. The antenna issue on the white iPhone 4 is probably not fixed on the white version as it is almost the same product as the black iPhone 4.

The white iPhone will be available to both AT&T and Verizon Wireless customers in the U.S. The device will be sold in those carriers' stores, as well as in the Apple Store and other retail outlets.

The Nintendo 3DS is so Cool!


So today I went to Fry's Electronics. To my my surprise, they had a Nintendo 3DS on demo! :D It was amazing! It was the first time I saw glasses-free 3D in action! AWESOME!!! But I do have to say that the Nintendo 3DS isn't perfect. I know a lot of you might be thinking it must be Godly. Well this is what everyone thinks when some new, never before achieved technology comes out. HAHA Anyways, the 3D only works at the certain distance from the screen and you will have to be looking like straight at the monitor to see the 3D. If you are just a little bit off, you'll either see 2 images or feel like throwing up (no joke)! My eyes tired out like after 2 minutes of looking at the screen. Probably not the best thing to be looking at all day. So that's it! That was my experience. I have to say the 3D is incredible. If you have the money! You should buy it! Don't play with the 3D on for too long though, I have a feeling it will really damage your eyes. :/
