Angry Birds coming to Windows Phone 7

Rovio is also working on 3D version of popular game

Windows Phone 7 users looks set to be able to enjoy Angry Birds on their handsets after the game's developer Rovio confirmed it was planning a version for Microsoft's mobile platform

Peter Vesterbacka from the developer told Pocket-lint: "We're working on it".

The mobile phone, which has gained huge popularity among iPhone and Android users, involves simple physics coupled sheer luck and requires players to transport ticked-off birds to a pig fortress via a slingshot in a bid to retrieve stolen eggs.

Vesterbacka also revealed the developer is working on a 3D version of Angry Birds.

"We've built a lot of 3D games before, it's not like it's a lot of learning in order to recreate the technology with Angry Birds,"he said.

However, he would not reveal when the game would be made available and what platforms it would be available on.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
