  1. The firmware will include the option to unlock
    30 exclusive levels of the Angry Birds Space game if the game is unlocked in the first three months after the update is released.
    * Gadgets and Extension Manager – Windows (and some applications) install different Gadgets and Extensions into your
    system. It’s not unusual to leave the computer in sleep mode for hours and see very little change in battery status.
