Corel Corp is heavily active in the Windows Store. Just type Corel in the Search Bar and see for yourselves. They are not only active for themself but have also gone in collaboration with some OEMs to deliver Corel’s Roxio’s products as built-in apps. For example, there are different versions of this Roxio MediaBook app for multiple OEMs in the Store. If you done the search above, you’ll see them in there. But then this is the Ultimate version of Roxio MediaBook. It is not tied to any OEM and you are paying $20 for it. And for all the memories this app contains, it is worth the price.

Angry Birds Space Has Entered Windows 8 Universe!

image

Here we are with Angry Birds Space! Did anyone doubt MS will burst out on the first day with the latest Angry Birds? I never did for one second! Believe it or not, Angry Bird is the King Maker of any platform, shunning the Game is like putting a noose on your neck. So I can imagine that Microsoft have twisted a few arms at Roxio, probably a few more. The picture I see in my head here is MS just pushing money into someone’s mouth each time he wanted to open his mouth to complain. “You have to make the GA!” I heard MS screaming.

Anyway, I am glad Angry Bird is here, my kids are here Angry Bird is here, even my Cat is glad Angry Bird is here, now the kids will leave him alone Smile

Ok I wont keep you in suspense any longer, here is Roxio’s description from the Store:

So there we have it. I see Roxio’s name as Publisher, but believe me, we could also put Microsoft Studios behind Roxio’s name as I am sure this is a collaboration of the two companies to get this out on day one. Am I happy they did, I am sure a lot of you did. So if you haven’t downloaded it, please go right ahead and download via the Source Link here below.
