Whether you are waiting in line at the grocery store or “watching” a Little League game, chances are one or more people are popping pigs, faces buried in a smartphone or tablet. That said, Rovio released the original Angry Birds three years ago today and people have had a whole lot of fun, as well as wasted a huge amount of time.

Happy Birdday! Can you believe that Angry Birds is turning three? We sure can’t! Celebrate with 30 NEW LEVELS, birdday cake, and the bubbliest bird ever — Pink Bird! But watch out for the cake — it’s not a lie, but it packs a BIG punch!

Did you catch that? It’s happy “birdday,” not the more traditional rendering.

Rovio has released Angry Birds 3.0 (iPhone, $0.99) and Angry Birds HD 3.0 (iPad, $2.99), a free update for existing owners. The new version includes 15 new Birdday Party (delicious cake!), as well as 15 new Bad Piggies-themed levels!

On the feature side of things, Rovio has added iPhone 5 Retina Display support.

Having already played several of the new levels I can saw with good authority that they’re a lot of fun and that the rest of the morning if not the rest of day is gone, just gone.

Seriously, I have to protect my ranking. Otherwise all of the time previously spent playing Angry Birds will have been wasted…

What’s your take?
