    Angry Birds movies? Wow. Too far... keep it to Apps... and toys.... and whatever they are selling now.

    I wonder when the craze will die? It's lasted longer than I thought it would.

    Or Jim Carrey?

    Three years is a long time in mobile app years. I wonder if the Angry Bird franchise will have lost its popularity by then?

    It's because they're a multimillion dollar company. I don't get it, but facts are facts.

    Because the mobile site clusters ALL stories together. So technically it isn't front page news.

    I wish someone would tell them how to use the iCloud API (even between the iPhone, iPad and Mac apps)

    Honestly, I feel like the toys and other merchandise are too much. It's an app, for a phone. Do we really need plush toys in the checkout line at Target?

    Well, they do make a lot of money on the toys. So I don't see why not.

    I find it quite unlikely that Angry Bird's current popularity will last into 2016.

    Kevin Bacon. The guys in everything!

    I just can't imagine a movie about Angry Birds though. I mean, they don't really talk, and there's no real plot other then get the eggs back from the pigs.

    I think "Bad Piggies" is a far better game than Angry Birds.

    I always thought Rush Limbaugh would be the perfect voice for the fat red one.

    Games with equal or less plots have been made into movies. They were all complete crap, as most video game adaptations in general are, but still... :rolleyes:
