Angry Birds Seasons Goes Green

Posted by Karey Westfall in "Android Software" @ 11:00 AM

http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/po...lease-Date.html

"Peter Vesterbacka, the "Mighty Eagle" at Rovio just announced during their GDC panel that Angry Birds St. Patricks Day is coming soon as part of Angry Birds Seasons."

Green is coming to Angry Birds Seasons! And I don't mean the eco-friendly movement (although that would be nice), but instead that the game will be adding a St. Patrick theme to their ever changing addictive wonder just in time for the green themed holiday. So go grab yourself a green beer and get destroying!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Thoughts Media Status Updates" @ 10:00 PM

I wanted to wish everyone across the Thoughts Media Network a happy new year - may 2011 be filled with prosperity, love, joy, and happiness for you and your loved ones. Be safe tonight!


What The Geeky Got for Gifts

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home News" @ 05:30 PM

http://mashable.com/2010/12/31/ipad...-mashable-poll/

"If you got an iPad as a gift during the holidays, you certainly weren't alone. In a recent poll of holiday gift recipients, iPads accounted for a full 22.7% of all gadget or hardware gifts, making iPads the single largest category in our gift poll, outstripping the nearest runner-up by nearly 14% of votes. That runner-up was Amazon's Kindle - not surprising considering that the Kindle is the best-selling product in Amazon's history."

It's a relatively small sampling size - less than 2400 votes, and only from people who read Mashable - but among the geek-set, there are a couple of stand-out points: the iPad was the #1 gift, more people got Macs (60%) than Windows machines (40%), Android phones let the way in the smartphone category with a hefty 50.3% figure (iPhones were 30%), but Windows Phone 7 devices at 10.3% just eeked out Blackberry devices (9.4%). Not bad for a brand new platform that most people still haven't heard about! Lastly, the Xbox/Kinect one-two punch clobbered the PS3 with a 54.3% figure versus only 11.9% for the PS3. The Kinect really is driving the Xbox 360 to new heights of popularity!

So How Was Everyone's Christmas?

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Thoughts Media Status Updates" @ 10:00 AM

...and we're back! It's a tradition here at Thoughts Media that we kick off the post-Christmas break by asking our community what they got for Christmas - specifically, any gizmos or gadgets. Or did you gift a loved one with some new piece of technology? Got any great tech support stories to share? I don't know about you, but whenever I'm over at a family member's house for Christmas, I inevitably end up sitting in front of their computer fixing/tweaking something. I don't mind though - I find it fun, and I like to help.

Speaking for myself, my tech stuff was pretty light this holiday - as it is every year - because if there's something tech that I need, I tend to buy it for myself when I need it, not when a holiday/birthday rolls around. I got a Kindle this Christmas from my wife, but, you guessed it, I bought it (with the help of a friend in the US) and gave it to her to give to me. Such is the life of a professional geek! ;-)

What about you? What did you do over Christmas, and did it involve technology in some way?

I wish you all a time of peace and happiness over the next couple of days (and beyond that too of course!). We won't be posting news on the 25th, but will resume things on the 26th.

Pocket Legends Receives Holiday Update: Now You Can Pummel That Goblin With A Giant Candy Hammer

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android Software" @ 06:00 PM

http://www.pocketlegends.com/

"Spacetime Studios is ready to celebrate the holidays with the High Winter Festival update for Pocket Legends (iOS/Android). Spread the yuletide cheer with new quests, loots, and combat areas sure to fulfill your MMO cravings this Christmas."

It's time to get your holiday game on! Spacetime Studios have added quite a bit of special holiday content to Pocket Legends, the super cool MMO in your pocket. The free content is all of one quest and a set of antlers for your character (yes, my warrior bear looks rather silly now). Anything beyond that will require you to plunk down some of your hard earned cash to get some in-game platinum. The new winter level is 10p then there are various equipment packs you can get for your character to dress them up as seen above. These range in price from 10p to 25p depending on your character's level. If you are below level 50 you can pretty well hook yourself up for about $5. I don't think that I'll pick up any of the silly gear but the new winter level and quests might be worth a few it. Any Pocket Legends players out there tried any of the new content?

"Rovio has just launched its Christmas themed collection of bonus Angry Birds levels on Android..."

Did you beat all the levels of Angry Birds yet? Do you like the holidays? Well, Angry Birds Seasons is available for you! Angry Birds Seasons is the classic game of Angry Birds with a holiday twist, including snow and santa hats. And it's free so you will still have enough money to buy me a gift...I mean, buy a gift for a family member!

Four Phones A Ringing: At T-Mobile For Less Than $100 This Holiday

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android Mobile Operators" @ 10:00 AM

http://www.androidguys.com/2010/11/...es-100-holiday/

"Starting this week, T-Mobile will be offering four Android-based handsets below the $100 price point. While they aren't necessarily the high-end super phones some of you readers might be after, they will definitely attract new Android users."

Happy Holidays, Android junkies! T-Mobile is bringing you a wonderful selection of stocking stuffers to help bring peace, joy, and little green robots to your loved ones this holiday season. For as little as $9.99 (T-Mobile Comet after rebate and contract) you can make those visions of robots dancing in your head a reality. Other options include the LG Optimus T for $29.99, the Motorola DEFY for $99.99, and the Motorola CHARM for $49.99. Anyone looking to spread a little Android cheer this holiday? Heck, at these prices it would be cheaper than that lump of coal you've had your eye on.
