Flappy Bird once again made headlines Wednesday as the Vietnamese developer announced plans to resurrect the overnight sensation later this summer in a supposedly less-addictive version. According to BGR, Rovio has soft launched their own take on the popular game with Retry, which the company bills as "an eight-bit time machine."

It appears to be game on for Android-based wearables now that Google has thrown down the gauntlet on its own offerings, which will be available in the coming months from LG and Motorola.

Like the times, music keeps a-changin’. These days, it’s more often enjoyed on the go from your iDevice, rather than by dusting off a CD or (gasp) record.

Sonos’ line of wireless music players can send your tunes on tour all over the house, and they offer more power and flexibility.
Mobile World Congress is chugging along at full steam in Barcelona, Spain and TechRadar, our sister site from across the pond, is there! Journey with us now as we give a quick rundown on the third day of MWC 2011.
If you're using a Sonos audio system to kick out the jams and have an iPad at your disposal, you'll be happy to know that your ability to control your tunes has gotten greater. That's right, Sonos Controller, which until recently was an iPhone and iPod touch app, is now available for your music-playing pleasure at an iPad-native resolution.
You might be familiar with Sonos’ high-quality music gear, which lets
you stream tunes anywhere in your home over its own Wi-Fi network. The
new S5 is a set of self-contained powered speakers that can expand an

Intriguingly, the S5 lets you take a pass on Sonos’ effective (but
pricey!) $349 dedicated remote, offering a free iPhone app to control
all your Sonos gear.
