Great moments of 2011: Rekindled

Great moments of 2011: Rekindled published on 4 Comments on Great moments of 2011: Rekindled

I think I’ve said this before. But no matter how interesting the book I’m reading is, no matter how important the subject matter, no matter how well-written and absorbing – if I’m reading it on the iPad, I can constantly hear the whispering of all the apps I could be using instead. That said, I read a lot of stuff on the iPad (both iBooks and Kindle), and I imagine the same would be true on the Fire.

On a related note, while we were flying back from our holiday a few days ago, my daughter looked up from her book, past me and my iPad, and over to the device in the hands of a passenger across the aisle. Her eyes went wide: “What’s that?”

“It’s called a Kindle.”

“It looks just like paper! Is it electronic?”

“Yep.”

“Wow.”

One last longing glance, and then back to her book.

The greatest movie of all time, Demolition Man, taught us that in the future every restaurant will be Taco Bell.

What they missed was that everything else will be Angry Birds. Here’s the tally to date, as far as I can tell:

  • Angry Birds
  • Angry Birds Seasons
  • Angry Birds Rio
  • Angry Birds Magic (exclusive to Symbian)
  • Angry Birds plush toys
  • Angry Birds, the board game
  • Angry Birds, the animated shorts
  • Angry Birds, the movie (in development)
  • Angry Birds onesie and other baby gear
  • Angry Birds in various ads
  • Angry Birds, the cookbook

Am I missing any? And what’s your suggestion for the next frontier for Angry Birds to conquer?
