Angry Birds Rio Beach Volley update to hit this week [video]

After the release of Angry Birds Rio back in March this year, Rovio is set to release the first update for the game. The update will be known as Beach Volley and Rovio say it will be available this week!

To give you a taste of what to expect, Rovio has released a short preview video showing the birds getting hurled at helicopters, pirate ships and castles decked with beach balls. It all looks like a lot of fun set against an ocean backdrop.

We will let you know as soon as the update is available and don’t forget to check out the video after the break.

Amazon Cloud Player now less hostile to iPhone, iPad

Yesterday, one of our readers, Aaron wrote in to tell us Amazon Cloud Player was suddenly playing -- if not nicely, than with less hostility -- on his iPad. Since it's US only, I couldn't check it myself but I asked him what was different from the previous, play-one-song-at-a-time-via-QuickTime "support"

He said it was; it played in his browser, didn't launch QuickTime, his music controls worked, and it would continue to play in the background. He was also kind enough to make us the video, embedded below.

Why less-hostile rather than nicely? You still have to ignore the warning about it not being compatible and push on through. Hopefully this means Amazon is working on it, however, and it will eventually, if not soon, be a seamless experience for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

If you're using Cloud Player on iOS, let us know what you think of the experience now. Good, good enough, still needs to get better?

[Thanks Aaron!]

TiPb Asks: Do you judge an app by its icon?

A while back on iPad Live, we got to talking about how we often judge and app by its icon -- if the icon is bad, or even just not great, we don't buy it (ahem, Chad!). There are just so many apps in the store it becomes an easy way to eliminate some. If the developer doesn't care enough to make a fabulous icon -- the thing everyone sees when buying and launching their app -- what else don't they care about?

Are we being snobs? Superficial much? Missing out on great apps just because the developer was better at coding than they were design? Or do great icons sometimes hide crappy apps?

How to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 via redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 (untethered)

Complete guide to Jailbreaking iPhone, iPod touch, and original iPad running iOS 4.3.3 with redsn0w

The iOS 4.3.3 untethered Jailbreak for iPhone, iPod touch, and original iPad has just gone live... and once again it's the same exploit and the same process as iOS 4.3.1 and iOS 4.3.2. That's right, three-peat! So here's your updated redsn0w Jailbreak walkthrough, just to get you going as fast as possible

Important: iPad 2 is still not supported. Likewise, if you've got a Verizon iPhone you'll want to wait for our updated Verizon iPhone iOS 4.3.3 guide.

Important: If you want to preserve your unlock, DO NOT USE THIS METHOD. To maintain your baseband, you'll need to create a custom IPSW and pwnagetool. Check out our TiPb jailbreak forum for more.

UPDATE: redsn0w has been updated to rc16 to fix an issue with the side ringer/vibration switch. The process remains the same, but we've updated the link to redsn0w below.

Hit the jump for a complete how-to!
