PlayBook Gets Angry Birds, Still a Crap Tablet

RIM has happily announced that the PlayBook now has access to some of the most popular game apps around for tablets. One of the apps is the world beating Angry Birds. You can't send email using the Playbook, but you can get your pig killin' on all you want.

Along with the original Angry Birds, you can also get Angry Birds Rio and Angry Birds Seasons. If only they were as excited about adding email and other basic features as they are games, the tablet might do well. The apps each cost $5 per offering.

That is expensive for the apps. Android users get the games for free to put up with a few ads and generally the games are cheaper on iOS too. I paid a buck on my iPhone for the original game.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
