The internet is a bad place. After speculation, rumor, and even flat-out denial by Abrams himself, it's been officially revealed after news leaked earlier this week... J.J. ABRAMS WILL DIRECT STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Walt Disney Studios sent out the official press release a short time ago, complete with quotes from all the involved players. Interestingly enough, the day the Abrams news flared up again this week, I had both of my girls decked out in STAR WARS t-shirts, a picture of which I shared on The Rock Father social nets. Details on this new ripple in The Force below...

SOFIA THE FIRST made made a big splash this past Friday, with her Disney Junior premiere becoming the #1 preschool series launch in cable history. While the arrival of a new Princess on the block brought the Anti-Princess parents out in droves, the overwhelming majority (including myself) seems to have enjoyed the show with their children. To conicide with the launch of the new series, the SOFIA THE FIRST: STORY THEATER App has been released for iOS devices, including iPad and iPhone.

With Disney-Pixar’s hit animated feature, Monsters, Inc. back in theaters and now in 3D, Disney Publishing has released an all-new iOS App to relive the story in a fully-interactive way. The Monsters, Inc. Storybook Deluxe App is available for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and even iPad mini.

There was a time when I was always at the forefront of new technology. That was before I was a parent, and these days I'm way behind. We don't have a iPad, Kindle, or any other "tablet" device. My iPhone is an iPhone 3, which means that I can't install iOS 5.1 on it, thus making all the cool new games and Apps completely incompatible with my device. While Apple continues pumping out new versions of the products, I just can't justify spending hundreds of dollars on new tech on a regular basis (there are more important expenses like diapers, formula, etc). I bought my iPhone in 2010, and in 2012 it's beyond "relic" status. It's a little irritating when I have news like this to share... Disney Publishing has just released a new FINDING NEMO App called NUMBERS WITH NEMO.
