Just in time for Easter, Rovio has released the latest episodic update to its insanely popular Angry Birds franchise. After taking a break in Angry Birds Rio, it appears the green pigs are back — and some are wearing Easter bunny hats. In Angry Birds Seasons: Easter Eggs players will continue to launch birds in an effort to destroy the pigs and pick up extra points by collecting Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies. The update, which packs 15 new levels, is available for iOS devices for $0.99 in the iTunes App Store and is free for Android smartphones from the Android Market.

- float GRAVITY_THE_ISLAND 4.815162
Looks like Star Wars and Lost are two of their fave entertainment choices. Hidden within the camera application is another Easter Egg. Just snap a picture and you will be rewarded with a handsome (?) picture of Bill Lumbergh from “Office Space”. LOL.
