Apple is showing off the power of the iPhone XS — specifically, when it comes to video. In honor of Earth Day, the tech giant showed off some new footage by Camp4 Collective, all shot using the iPhone XS. "Don't Mess with Mother" features stunning nature imagery set to Megadeth's "Last Rites," a song taken from the band's 1984 debut album, Killing is My Business... and Business is Good! The album has been reissued, remastered, and enhanced several times over the years, most recently for last year's "The Final Kill" edition — released on Century Media Records.

The iPhone has truly changed the world in millions of ways. On our smartphones, we can pay our bills, communicate with anyone across the globe, order anything we want, and, perhaps most importantly, pass the time.

According to Data company Inrix, the typical American commuter wastes 42 hours in traffic each year. There was a time where the average commuter would have to just power through the traffic jams by listening to morning radio, a CD, or just the background noise of other frustrated drivers. Now we can simply look at our phones.

willemsappIf your little one(s) like art, then there's a new App on the market that you might want to try. MO WILLEMS' Pigeon Presents... Mo on the Go! is out today via Disney Publishing Worldswide, and features some of Willems' most beloved characters in a collection of games and activities. Kids can also draw along in the App, which is available now for iOS and Nook.

As BRAVE gave Pixar their seventh Oscar for "Best Animated Feature" at last night's Academy Awards, audiences that have yet to experience the tale of Merida are seeking it out, while those who have are seeking new ways to do so. I have to admit that while well-versed in the "Disney Princess" realm, we have not yet seen BRAVE, though we did get a taste at the recent ROCKIN' EVER AFTER edition of Disney on Ice. That said, iOS users that are looking to expand on the world of BRAVE with their own children have two recent Apps to check out...

Fisher PriceI didn't realize it until after the fact, but our kids received a lot of Fisher-Price toys for Christmas this year. I bought quite a few myself, including some from the "Laugh & Learn" line, which has been a staple here at Rock Father HQ for the past 3+ years. Now, Fisher-Price is bringing some serious tech to their "Laugh & Learn" toys with their expanding line of Apptivity products. 

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.
