From our sister blog, Mobile Quirks, the new Rovio game, "Bad Piggies":
"For those of you who have slaughtered your fair share of pigs in Angry Birds, check out the game from the pigs’ point of view! You can create crazy vehicles to travel across the landscape to reach your goals. From the Google Play site:

*Updated with old school Nintendo style 8-bit video!
Ok, so I had to post about this ridiculously viral video by Korean Pop Star PSY. Gangnam is apparently the uber-rich part in South Korea, similar to I guess Beverly Hills in LA. PSY appeared as a sneak guest on The Ellen Show with Britney Spears and was also on The Today Show. There was a great spoof of Gangnam Style on SNL (Saturday Night Live) last weekend, a fun remix with Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" and lipdubs by the US Navy and Gandalf.
At first, I didn't like the song at all. Call it brainwashing but if you hear something often enough and learn the words, you know what, it grows on you. Just like The Macarena or Justin Bieber.
Check out the video/clips below:

Andy Murray prevails over Novak Djokovic 7-6, 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2. Murray's win comes after losing his first four Grand Slam finals (lost three US Open finals to Federer, one Australian Open final to Djokovic). I've been watching Murray play a lot and although he is a counter puncher, he does have some nice shot making ability. We saw Murray destroy Federer at the London Olympics and I'm sure he gained a ton of confidence with that win.
Murray had a lot of scares in this final. He had a 4-0 lead in the second set only to get broken twice. After leading 2-0 in sets, he went on to lose the next two sets that led to a dramatic final set (remember the US Open ends 5-setters with tiebreaks at 6-6) . There were a lot of 30-shot rallies and overall it has a really entertaining match. Novak's legs seemed to really cramp at the end as he was barely moving and kept stretching them out.
Congrats Andy, you've shown all the underdogs in the world that one day, your time to shine will come!

It seems like Aatma Studios is trying to make a name for themselves and you'll have to watch the video to see what I mean. :)
