Look Out Farmville: Angry Birds is Coming to Facebook

first_img9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… For you 30-something geeks out there, Angry Birds may feel like a simple, dumbed down version of DOS-based video game classic Scorched Earth. For the rest of you, it’s simply one of the the most popular games on the planet.If an Angry Birds movie and versions for nearly every smartphone on the market isn’t enough, it looks like it has the world’s largest social network in its sights. You guessed it, Angry Birds is coming to Facebook.The game – in which you fling a variety of birds at things in hopes of knocking them over – is a complete blockbuster with more than 75 million downloads. Several different gaming blogs have reported that Angry Birds’ creator, Rovio, has told Wired UK that it is working on a social reinvention of the game for Facebook. While Facebook Director of Gaming Partnerships Sean Ryancommented last January at the Inside Social Apps conference that Angry Birds “wouldn’t make a lot of sense” on Facebook, it appears that the company has taken heed by working on a specially socialized version of the game.“If you have a single player game, it’s not clear why you should build it for us, you should probably build it for other people,” said Ryan.Rovio studio boss Mikael Hed told Wired that the Facebook version of Angry Birds would have “completely new aspects to it that just haven’t been experienced in any other platform.”Will Angry Birds take over as the number one game on Facebook? Can it compete with the crack-like qualities of games like Farmville and Cityville?

Tripura government bans unregistered e-rickshaws

first_imgThe Tripura government has banned the plying of unregistered battery-operated rickshaws, also known as e-rickshaws, causing disruption for commuters. The deadline to register the vehicles ended on July 31. A senior official in the Transport Department said a large number of e-rickshaw owners had failed to register their vehicles. “The non-compliance had continued despite a few extensions in the deadline,” he told The Hindu on Saturday.The Tripura High Court has issued several directions regarding e-rickshaws since March 2017, but the orders were not implemented. The erstwhile CPI(M)-led Left Front government had taken a decision in July 2014 to register and license e-rickshaws but no headway was made. Providing employment Authorities have been in favour of e-rickshaws as they are a cheap mode of transport and provide employment to youth. Following the expiry of the deadline, teams have been deployed to impound unregistered e-rickshaws. The Battery Rickshaw Welfare Association and the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh have demanded an extension of the deadline.last_img read more

Moodys Upgrades Royal Caribbean Rating

first_imgMoody’s rating agency has upgraded Royal Caribbean Cruises’ senior unsecured rating to Baa2 from Baa3, and assigned a P-2 rating to the company’s planned USD 1.15 billion commercial paper program.The rating agency added that the company’s rating outlook is stable.“The upgrade to Baa2 reflects Moody’s expectation that Royal Caribbean will benefit from strong booking trends, increased onboard spending and the introduction of new ships which will enable the company to maintain leverage below 3.5x,” Pete Trombetta, Moody’s lead lodging and cruise analyst, said.“The upgrade also reflects the company’s improved liquidity position, including reduced outstandings under its committed revolving credit facilities,” Trombetta added.The P-2 commercial paper rating reflects RCL’s adequate liquidity, supported by its strong free cash flow generation which is sufficient to cover debt maturities over the next 24 months.Constraining the company’s liquidity profile is the large cash outflows related to new ship deliveries which cause spikes in capital expenditures throughout the year.RCL also has a USD 1.4 billion revolver due 2020 and a USD 1.2 billion revolver due in 2022; combined outstandings of about USD 700 million at March 31, 2018.The revolvers do not require a material adverse change representation at borrowing, but do contain financial covenants which are expected to maintain ample headroom, Moody’s concluded.last_img read more
