Everyone that unwrapped a tablet, touch phone, or anything else with a touch screen for Christmas knew exactly what to do with their new gift: Download Angry Birds onto it. That’s right, if there’s one thing that truly shows off the magnificence of a touchscreen device, it’s Angry Birds.
Rovio’s hit game had 6.5 million downloads on Christmas Day. That’s a record, which says a hell of a lot. It was a good Christmas all around, apparently.
