Angry Birds angry

John Moe Oct 11, 2010

And you do NOT want to make those birds angry. Rovio, the maker of the most popular iPhone game Angry Birds is upset with Microsoft. Microsoft put an icon of the game on a Windows Phone 7 website prompting Rovio to, er, tweet that they have not committed to the platform yet and that the icon was used without their permission. They said they will support all “relevant platforms”. Ouch. Microsoft apologized.
