Chrome-flavored Angry Birds Javascript Cheats

It’s nearly a week since I’ve played the web version of Angry Birds by Rovio. This version is obviously designed for Google Chrome, although it’s not Chrome-exclusive, browsers that supports HTML5 features like Local Storage, Canvas and WebGL would be able to run the game. I believe that this is a huge leap in terms of web technology. It gives us an excellent full-featured(?) game that doesn’t use third-party plugins such as Adobe Flash, Shockwave or Java applet.

As explained … Continue reading

I think this has been going for a long time now, but it seems that Globe Telecom has finally got an answer on Sun Cellular’s Facebook Zero. Globe subscribers can now access Facebook Mobile for free without using any tricks nor proxies, not even 3rd party applications. All you need is your mobile phone’s browser. I just tried it this Christmas, and it works! I wasn’t aware of this before, but if somebody knows about it ages ago, please feel free to comment on when this great phenomenon started. I was on an out-of-town vacation this Christmas, without any Wi-Fi … Continue reading

After the release of the new Google Nexus S, a smartphone by Google, they are now releasing their new netbook for beta testing for a few lucky, selected individuals. Google is now promoting and testing their new Operating System, the Google Chrome OS. It’s basically a stripped version of Linux with only a Google Chrome Browser left. It’s primary target are users who “live their lives on the web” since the OS cannot do what other competing netbooks can do. It can only execute web apps inside the browser and not native programs like the typical computers that we know. … Continue reading
