The most widely used game which is present in every single smartphone and tablet will be soon seen on baby merchandise. Rovio, the developer of Angry Birds, has decided to move into the baby product business.

Rovio is keen to expand its business and seeing the success of its Angry Birds game, it can be said that the gaming company will succeed in its goal. Angry Birds toys are already available in the market and they too are being liked by a lot of people.

The Finland based company was started by 3 students and was sponsored by Nokia and HP in its initial stage but now it has become a multi-million dollar company.

Ville Heijari, vice president of franchise development, said that the company’s top priority will be game development for sure but at the same time it wants to enter merchandising venture as it is one of the fastest growing businesses.

Baby Merchandise will include a lot of products like a 42-inch square blanket having images of angry birds. Apart from baby products, Rovio will also provide flip-flops, bags and the iPhone cases with images from its game.

Wikipedia Losing Contributors

The best free online encyclopedia has stated that it is losing its contributors. Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales said at the website’s annual conference, held in Israel this year, that “convoluted” editing templates are the main reason behind it.

Wikipedia allows any user to edit its articles and furthermore provides a lot of tools for writing on its site. Losing its contributors can become a big trouble for the company as most of its articles are written and edited by volunteers.

Jimmy Wales said that the administrators are trying to solve the problem and will fix it quickly. He said that complex templates may be discouraging its users to write for the encyclopedia.

Wikipedia is available in a lot of languages and is supported by non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. It has over 19 million articles and has global users over 365 million.

Wikipedia’s readers are growing at a fast speed but its contributors are not following the same trend. In an effort to encourage volunteers to contribute actively, a new feature called WikiLove has been introduced which lets users share positive feedback.

Wikipedia is one of the best creations of the Internet and it has relevant matter for every age group.

All of us know that students, when doing assignments, prefer Wikipedia over their textbooks. Technogazette hopes that Wikipedia will soon come out of this trouble.
