Angry Birds sells 6.5M copies without advertising once.

Rovio sells 6.5M copies of Angry Birds without advertising once

I got to meet the creators of Angry Birds back at E3 earlier this year, but because of our busy schedules, didn’t get too much of a chance to really talk with them in-depth about their experience on the App Store so far. Fortunately, GamesBeat has done just that, providing a nice profile of Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka and Mikael Hed, the two Finnish creators of one of the App Store’s most popular titles. They’re actually mobile app veterans — while Angry Birds is their biggest hit as a company, they’ve also developed for lots of other groups, including Real Networks and Electronic Arts.

The game was created to be casual, open to anyone to play, and use some really memorable characters that would resonate with anyone who picked it up. They accomplished those goals — the game has found a surprising following around the world, and almost everyone who owns an iPhone recognizes the birds and pigs characters. A US$4.99 iPad version has also taken off, and Rovio plans to bring the app to lots of other mobile devices as well. The growth has been entirely organic, too — they haven’t spent a single cent on advertising the game, instead relying completely on word-of-mouth and Apple’s own promotional tools.

And while their success is already quite widespread, the two say their goals are even bigger than what they’ve accomplished so far: they hope to eventually see 100 million paid downloads. Definitely possible — it’s interesting to see how iPhone-created brands are growing so quickly.

STRONG web design – the official webpage of north korea.

3 Aug

code of the official webpage of north korea


quick explanation for non-web people: the html-code <strong> does not mean that something is “strong” or “powerful”, but rather simply just bold. the developer of the official north-korean website must have not been aware of this and just to be safe put in a few dozen extra <strong> for good measure.

as we all know north korea is a strange place. and on top of it, north korea is pretty full of itself and their website coding is no different: it’s really, really strong. see for yourself on the official webpage of the democratic people’s republic of korea (and yes, it’s a .com).

updated: microsoft street slide view better than google street view? [video]

2 Aug

back in a february post i said that i’d be switching to bing maps over google maps soon (back then for the flickr integration). well, this newly released video from microsoft research has reaffirmed that notion as street slide looks phenomenal – especially to a map geek like myself. 

update: i fixed the youtube video above and it should work again.

iPhone 4 case program starts with an email.

24 Jul


of course there’s an app for that…

here’s how it works.

go to the site for the program: http://www.apple.com/iphone/case-program/. the program offers iPhone 4 customers an app store app that lets them apply for their free iPhone 4 bumper case.

  1. download the free iPhone 4 case program app from the app store. 
  2. launch the app on your iPhone 4 and sign in using your iTunes account or apple id. 
  3. select your bumper or case. 
  4. that’s it.

what about if you already bought a bumper case?


there’s an email for that. all credit card customers should already be seeing refunds and receiving emails such as the one above.
