Rovio has made a name for itself in the mobile gaming industry with the release of Angry Birds some years back, and they have not looked back since. Angry Birds has more or less appeared on all of the popular mobile gaming platforms, be they tablets or smartphones, and have reduced the efficiency of workers at the office as they tend to sneak in a few minutes of Angry Birds from time to time while the boss is not looking. In fact, Angry Birds has also come up with its different merchandise to earn even more money, while working with the Star Wars before, where that game proved to be quite the hit, so much so that it warranted a sequel to this franchise via an expansion known as Angry Birds Star Wars II, which will launch later this September 19th in app stores worldwide.
Ever since the digital camera module was introduced into a smartphone, it was safe to assume that one day, the average dedicated digital camera would suffer a drop in sales, as most folks would just use their smartphone cameras to capture memories wherever they go. The day has not yet arrived, but it is definitely close with the recent announcement of the Nokia Lumia 1020 – a smartphone which boasts of a massive 41-megapixel sensor as well as optical image stabilization (OIS) that have surpassed existing benchmarks of smartphone photography. We are talking about unmatched picture detail and quality with an effortless capture, edit and sharing features here.

I remember being a, shall we say, a young adult? Some extra make-up and a newly purchased fake I.D, getting a six pack of little green bottles of beer and drinking them with my best friends up near the lake. Those memories used to be so much fun, now I have a daughter of my own and she’s highly likely to create the same horrors for me, that I did for my mom… but for her, pulling the same nonsense is getting tougher every day.
We make a large investment in our phones, not only are we invested monetarily, but these phones hold important information that we need to go on about our daily lives, and then, one day, we jump out of the car at our favorite Italian restaurant and wham! the phone lands on its face, on the hard concrete sidewalk, and despite the cute and bejeweled phone case, the screen shatters into a million pieces and I instantly no longer feel like spaghetti and meatballs followed by a cannoli, I just want to cry.
I remember being back in high school, and listening to my math teacher tell us the importance of being able to quickly solve problems on paper, because we wouldn’t carry a calculator everywhere when we got out into the real world. While those lessons were good ones, almost everyone does have a rather powerful calculator in their pocket. In fact, most of us can’t seem to be parted from our smartphones. So what happens when you’re at the office, and your phone is about to die, and there is no charger in sight?
Have you ever had an “oh no!” incident with your iPhone? You know what I’m talking about, you leave for your high school reunion in New York City, with the address of the fabulous apartment where you will meet all your old friends conveniently stored on your phone, when whoops! You accidentally delete the info and spend the next 2 hours walking up and down 54th Street… in a designer dress… in the rain? Yup, it really happened.
