Angry Birds Halloween edition for iPhone and iPad scares me

Why does it scare me? Because I already have no free time, and this just equals bad news. Rovio, the makers of Angry Birds have officially dropped the Angry Birds Halloween Special Edition in the Apple App Store. The game is priced at $0.99 for the iPhone / iPod touch, and $1.99 for an HD version that runs on the iPad. In terms of what you get, there are 45 brand new levels, the obligatory spooky music, graphics, and loads of pumpkins. One more selling point if you’re the bragging type? This special edition is exclusive to iOS.

It’s available now in the App Store. More →

Rumor: DROID 2 hitting on August 12th

DROID 2

Fresh out of the rumor oven, still warm. Engadget is reporting that the Motorola DROID 2 could launch on Verizon Wireless as soon as August 12th. The tech site quotes a “trusted source” who also detailed that the 12th could be some sort of “soft launch” — as a full DROID creepy commercial media blitz is not set to kick off until the 26th. There was also mention of a Star Wars special edition DROID 2 with a picture of R2-D2 on the back of the phone. If the report is accurate, August 12th is just 23 days away… who’s excited? More →

Nokia N96 Bruce Lee Edition available from China

For those who have managed to remain completely unaffected by the current state of the global economy – and who really dig Kung Fu – this may be the best thing to happen to you since your money. Nokia China has just made a special edition N96 available and it packs all kinds of punch (sorry). Sort of. Basically you’re looking at an N96 with the image and signature of Bruce Lee on the back cover, a bluetooth headset and a special wrist strap and pint-sized nunchaku. The price of admission – ¥8,788, which works out to roughly $1,286. Wow. That might seem like a pretty steep price to pay, but you’ll surely be the envy of, umm… Of someone, we think. We can’t imagine who, but someone.
