The Sims’ Will Wright launches THRED to let you tell stories

If you're any sort of gamer, or at least familiar with some of the Sims titles like, well, The Sims or SimCity, then you'll probably know that the name "Will Wright" isn't one you'd associate with social networking. And yet that is exactly what the acclaimed game designer has ventured into in his latest creation.

Pixelmator, the darling of iPad photo editing, is coming to iPhone

There are plenty of good photo editing apps for iPhone, that much is certain. People love VSCO Cam, and Snapseed is still going strong. A new favorite, Fotograf, has taken over my photo editing on the small screen. There are still those times when a simple editor just won’t cut it; you need more than filters. Pixelmator, a favorite of ours for iPad, will soon become available for iPhone as well. To celebrate, the Pixelmator crew is discounting the app by 50%, bringing the price down to $4.99.

Alleged iPad ‘Pro’ cases shown off in video (it’s so thin!)

With tablet sales slumping, rumors of an ‘iPad Pro’ still circulate. The 12-inch tablet is widely speculated on, but we’ve still not seen anything close to a finished product. There have been ‘dummy’ models photographed, and cases surreptitiously snapped, but nothing suggesting anyone has a working iPad Pro anywhere on Earth (except maybe Cupertino).

Apple, IBM deal will bring iPads to Japan’s elderly

Apple and IBM have entered an agreement with Japan Post to bring iPads to the elderly. The move is a technological step for Japan Post’s ‘Watch’ service, which leverages postal employees to check in on the elderly now and then. Watch currently costs 1,000 Yen/month ($8.50 or so). Japan Post is government-owned, and operates roughly 24,000 post offices in addition to a large bank. Japan Post is also one of the nation’s largest insurers, and hopes iPads will both scale their Watch service as well as make it easier on everyone involved.

Nikon nudges photographers toward DSLRs with new app

Mobile photography has done many things: opened up a photography hobby to the masses, ushered in a glut of filtered images, and further divided the professionals (and aspiring professionals) from the amateurs. Many still turn to professional-grade cameras to meet their needs, DSLRs standing chief among them, but getting started is tricky -- there are numerous lenses and accessories available for digital SLR cameras, and pining down exactly what you need is hard. Nikon has taken a step, however, to simplify the process.
