Clip Syndicate

Finland's Rovio and the head of its games operation, Jami Laes (Yami lice), have parted company as the business behind Angry Birds continues to grapple with an increasingly competitive mobile games market. Rovio has expanded its hugely successful Angry Birds brand into an animated TV series and consumer product licensing, but the company has struggled to produce more hit games and recently said it would cut about 14 percent of its workforce.
