Rovio hinted at Angry Birds Star Wars 2 late last week, but today we get an official announcement as well as our first look at gameplay footage and the new Hasbro “Telepods” toys, which appear to let users transfer new characters into the game. The Telepod controller will be available where toys are sold, according to the video, and a broken link to Hasbro is provided.

In January, we published the first photos of actual rear shells for Apple’s upcoming fifth-generation iPad. Based on these photos, the next iPad will carry a design that is akin to the iPad mini, but, of course, larger.
Today, we have received the first photos of a carrying case for this redesigned 9.7-inch iPad. Once again, this new evidence of a redesign points to a form-factor that is narrower in comparison to previous full-sized iPads.
The edges of the case also point to a more squared-off design, as found on the current-generation iPad mini. Our previous photos of the fifth-generation iPad parts point to the design also because almost as thin as the iPad mini. Thanks to Steve at Minisuit, who make great cases for iOS devices, for the lead.
Update: We have received additional photos of iPad 5 (the blue ones) cases. We’ve put a full gallery below:

Not so fast.
There is exactly one model of Kindle Fire, while there are about 16 models of iPad, two of which are second and third on the list and iPads make up a majority of the top 15 list. Did number 1 outnumber #2+#3+#5+#6…?
Could the Fire be the top selling tablet at Best Buy still? Sure (unlikely), but there is no way to tell from the data provided.
And that’s before you get the to the whole $199, making money on the razor blades business model. expand full story

Hello one final time, 9to5Mac readers.
Greetings from the environs of greater Atlanta. I’m writing to you from the airport following an altogether enjoyable week at Big Nerd Ranch.

For my final report to you, I’d like to say something about the people and social experience of iOS Bootcamp. expand full story
