In truth, the only thing missing from the original Angry Birds game was the presence of alien pigs. Developer Rovio has officially announced Angry Birds Space, a follow-up to the smash app Angry Birds and a follow-up to follow-up Angry Birds Seasons, which will be released on iOS, Android, PC, and Mac on March 22. Video of the upcoming cosmic pig-killing madness has since emerged from SXSW. See Rovio’s official teaser and and find out a few intriguing game details below. READ FULL STORY

The new iPad, which has been anticlimactically named “the new iPad,” has the tech world buzzing after its unveiling by Apple CEO Tim Cook at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts today. So what’s in a name? Well, aside from a lukewarm reception to the letdown name itself (as TechCrunch.com marveled, “The new iPad will just be called ‘iPad.’ That’s not confusing at all,”) it’s those noticeable, but not entirely groundbreaking new features like the retina display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, access to 4G LTE networks and A5X GPU chip for sharper graphics. With no major changes to the iPad itself, much of the feeling around the web is:,“The new iPad is a minor update, but you’ll buy it anyway.”

Today was a huge moment for Apple as CEO Tim Cook took the stage at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to announced Apple’s latest riff on the “revolutionary” iPad. It was the first announcement since Apple founder Steve Jobs’ passing in October (just a day after Apple iPhone 4S announcement), and Cook, joined by marketing chief Philip Schiller, did not spare the drama as he touted the company’s “post-PC revolution.”
“We think the iPad is the poster-child of the post-PC world,” said Cook in his introduction. “When we set out to create the iPad, we set out to create not just a new product, but a new category.” With LTE download speeds, retina display, HD video recording, and more, the iPad (on sale March 16) may just live up to its promise. We break down the news below. READ FULL STORY
All is not well in Triple Town. The much buzzed-about puzzle game, which successfully launched on Facebook and Google+ in October and on iOS and Android in January, is engaged in a fierce legal battle with a rival company accused of ripping it off.
Triple Town co-creator David Edery confirmed on his blog last Sunday that the development studio filed a copyright infringement suit against competing studio 6waves Lolapps (also known as 6L) in response to Yeti Town, a virtually identical game released two months after Triple Town, which one review called “the exact same game, only this time with snow.” Edery alleged that, among other offenses, 6L entered into a nondisclosure agreement with Spry Fox, only to abruptly end negotiations when Yeti Town was released. Today Rex Ng, the CEO of 6L, fired back, telling Venturebeat, “This accusation is unjustified and plainly not true. We have not broken the NDA signed between 6L and Spry Fox.” 6L also released this statement to EW: READ FULL STORY
Finally some answers for on-the-go girls (and guys) who absolutely must know where to pick up this season’s most mouthwatering macriobiotic fare with Madonna (Angelica Kitchen, obvs), how to cope with the perils of sitting next to a sweaty seat filler at the Emmys (if I had a nickel…), and who you have to bang to get your hands on the latest Coldplay album (not Brad Pitt… maybe Jay-Z)! That’s right GOOP fans, all-around doyenne Gwyneth Paltrow is bringing her unique brand of so-upscale-it’s-accessible-again-and-is-the-world-upside-down? elegance to mobile devices.
This latest venture, called GOOP City, became available on iPhones and iPads today for $3.99. Like everything else GOOP, it’s nothing if not universal (if you fit any of the three conditions above). The iOS app will offer tips on restaurants, bars, shopping, walking tours, and more. For now, GOOP City will focus on New York City, though more cities will be GOOPified in coming months. Paltrow described the app as “a trusted friend,” explaining that she was inspired by “years of being steered in the wrong direction by bribed concierges, biased opinions, and just plain bad suggestions.”
Food for thought: Paltrow’s daughter is named Apple. Is it a mere coincidence, or has she been planning this Jobs-ian tech takeover since 2004? How long before Paltrow partners with vendors in the world’s end-all-be-all daily deals website: LifeGOOPer? (Now your iPhone pocket journal will be only $148.80 instead of $372!) Next thing you know, she’ll be booking your hotels, flights, and car rentals on GOOPelocity. And then the final phase: GOOPling, a joint project with Ryan Gosling to take over all of meme-dom!
What do you think, PopWatchers? Will you sign up for GOOP City? Is Paltrow the modern-day shadow self of Napoleon, waging a step-by-step takeover of life as we know it?
