        Oh well. Still says it's £3.49 for me today - probably cos it's now over the 15,000 download mark. Never mind - stick to my iPad version.

    I give it five minutes

    Angry Birds for free

    But the Angry Birds extended warranty costs £10.

    It's an addictive little game.....

    and took me 10 times as long to complete than MoH, any of the CoD or BFBC2 and cost me absolutely nothing.

    Paris because it's fun to play with cheap birds.
