I agree, Angry Birds is fun for a while, but gets boring fast. And the school I work at is even considering putting it on all the iPads we have so kids can learn about physics. But hey, as Prezbo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roland_%22Prez%22_Pryzbylewski) said,

Trick them into thinking they're not learning and they do.

rovio must be rolling in it.

people will get bored of this one day.

Not really...it's the type of game most casual players can pick up, play, put down and have fun with it for a cost that is a fraction of what normal games cost.

Model is here to stay.

What annoys me with Rovio (and many other iOS games developpers) is that I have to pay twice if I want the iPad HD version and the iPhone version. Very uncool.

Do people really enjoy ads in their games or what? I was going to buy Angry Birds since it's all the rage, I figure it must be fun (I just adore Bejeweled), but when I read that it has ads in it despite being a paid app and I won't stand for ads in paid apps. No thanks. It apparently doesn't bother 50 million other people, though.

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for Rovio and glad for their success but its everywhere....
