Apple’s iPad 2 is finally available in stores and you can buy it more places than ever. AT&T, Verizon, Best Buy, Walmart and Target are among retailers now carrying the iPad 2. The tablet goes on sale at 5PM and Apple will be taking online orders beginning at 4AM. In other news, Google now lets you eliminate websites from showing up in search results. A link located under each description will let you block any site you want from ever appearing again. Google hopes the new feature will stop users from being bombarded by low-quality sites. And finally, Angry Birds creator Rovio raised $42 million furthering its expansion as a multimedia giant. After creating 51 games, Angry Birds is Rovio’s first success with over 40 million active users. The investments will be used to create similar products, with a broadcast cartoon based on the game already in the works.
