Apple on Sunday rolled out two brand new "Your Verse" iPad ads, adding even more stories to Apple's ongoing efforts to draw attention to people using the iPad in unusual, interesting, and compelling ways.

The first video, titled "Cherie's Verse", charts how travel writer Cherie King (who is deaf) is able to use her iPad to explore the world, interact with locals, document her travels and "inspire other deaf individuals to do the same."

"My iPad lets me share my journey with the world. Other deaf people tell me they're traveling more now because they see it's possible", King explains.

A more in-depth look at King's workflow can be found here.

The second ad focuses on famed Finnish conductor Esa-Pekka Saonen who uses various apps on his iPad Air to transform the seeds of a simple melody into a full fledged orchestral score. An in-depth look at how Saonen uses his iPad Air to accomplish this feat can be found here.

SEGA
MMO Culture reports that Phantasy Star Online 2's first English server will launch this week. Don't get too excited, though, because Asiasoft is aiming the service at players in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Phillippines.

SEGA refuses to talk about what's next in terms of a possible western PSO2 client, even going so far as to list the game on its "things-we-can't-answer" slide at a recent convention.

[Thanks alleomurand!]

In World of Warcraft's current content lull, you may find yourself wondering what to do once you finally hit level 90. You can, of course, quest, raid, or PvP to your heart's content, but what do you do when you get tired of running the same dungeons and battlegrounds? While you could -- and many do -- wander off to explore other games, a common answer to slow content times in WoW is to pick up collecting.

While collecting isn't a primary game element, the game is full of things to collect -- and some of them even have achievements to be earned or special in-game collection interfaces. Sound like an interesting use of your WoW downtime? We're going to start off with some of our favorite time-consuming achievements -- all with cool titles to adorn your character -- that will definitely help you fill up the hours while waiting for Warlords of Draenor. And, of course, you get to customize your character with some awesome titles to boot.

Sho Minazuki sho is fiery in this Persona 4 Arena Ultimax trailer (sorry, we had to). Sho is a new character in the Persona series, and the video gives us a little backstory before jumping into the actual fighting – it's all in Japanese, but the images are pretty clear. He has an evil, creepy grin, and a red scar that glows when he's enraged. He also throws a vicious tantrum, apparently.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is due out in the fall for Xbox 360 and PS3, for $60. Pre-orders are live now. Ultimax is a fighting game that expands on 2012's Persona 4 Arena, which we found to be delightful.

Apple Preparing iOS 7.1.2 Update, Likely Addressing Email Encryption and iMessage Issues (MacRumors)

As Apple rumors go, this one is relatively tame and mundane. That means it's far more likely to be true.

How the iPhone 6 and iPhone phablet compare to current flagships from Apple and Samsung (BGR)

From the article: "We see mockups that supposedly represent Apple's upcoming iPhone 6 compared to other smartphone models every day."

Mysteriously left out of the article: "And we post every single one of them, shamelessly, and then make it sound like they're legitimate 'leaks' because we are chasing pageviews above all else and have no respect for our readers' intelligence whatsoever. Speaking of which, here's another one of our execrable articles with an iPhone 6 mockup at its gooey, raw sewage center."

This latest mockup non-story is sourced from Business Insider, which makes this post basically a neutron star of newslessness. Only the addition of supporting "evidence" from an analyst or Digitimes could cause this article to collapse into a full-fledged black hole of purest nonsense.

Slab of metal that vaguely resembles 'iPhone 6' leaks spotted in Romania (AppleInsider)

This headline reads like something straight from The Onion. The article itself isn't much better. It's only a matter of time before we see a story like this (most likely from BGR):

IPHONE 6 LEAK: Design similar to Apple's next iPhone found burnt into piece of toast

Apple wants Beats for Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, not technology (AppleInsider)

Serious question: is there any actual evidence that Apple wants Beats at all, for anything? Any evidence at all? Even a single, legitimate shred? If there is, I certainly haven't seen it.

HI-DEF IPHONE 6 LEAK: iPhone 6 compared to every older iPhone in new high-quality video (BGR)

From the article: "The latest installment in the ongoing series of iPhone 6 leaks is perhaps one of the most interesting yet."

But later on: "An iPhone 6 mockup has been compared to every other previous iPhone model in a high quality, high-definition video for the first time." (emphasis added)

Watching BGR's slow self-destruction of the last remaining dregs of its credibility is entertaining on one level, but on another level it's almost painful. The site used to be one of the go-to spots for news on mobile devices. Now it's little more than a poster child for what happens when you chase rumors (and the attendant pageviews) above all other considerations.

Compare what BGR was like as little as three years ago to the click-baiting brothel of nonsense it's become today, and let it serve as a cautionary tale: this is what you can become if you stop caring about the truth.

Latest Weibo leak shows supposed 4.7-inch iPhone screen backlight part (9to5 Mac)

From the article: "Weibo is continuing to be the source of unverified iPhone 6 leaks."

Mysteriously left out of the article: "And we post every single one of them..." and so forth.

Apple's Acquisition of Beats Could Be Delayed Because of Valuation, Roles, and More (MacRumors)

For all the reasons outlined in this article, there's one they left out: the fact that this rumored acquisition never made a bit of sense in the first place.

Speaking of things that make absolutely no sense...

Apple Testing ARM Based Mac Prototypes with Large Magic Trackpad? (MacRumors)

"The question mark in the headline lets us retain our powers of legitimacy!"

This rumor crops up every single year, so the only surprising thing about it is that we almost made it as far as June before hearing this BS yet again in 2014. All the reasons this rumor didn't make sense in 2010, 2011, 2012 or 2013 remain true this year. The short-short version: ARM processors still lag far behind Intel processors in terms of raw CPU power, often by as much as an order of magnitude.

My iPad Air is wicked fast for a lot of applications, but a 2013-era MacBook Pro it is not.

Apple IIWatch the hilarity that ensues when you take an old Apple II and place a bunch of kids in front of the command-driven machine. Working without a mouse or the Internet, the kids are both baffled and astonished by the computer's rudimentary operation. Their reactions are recorded as part of the REACT series from TheFineBros.

As someone who cut their teeth on computers with a command-based input, I have an extra appreciation for the kid's reactions because I can remember having to take all those steps. The only difference is that I was amazed, not exasperated by what you could do with this thing called a personal computer.

Even though our initial reactions to the Apple II are vastly different, I do have to agree with something one of the children said -- technology IS awesome.

Do you want to take on the challengers of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U with a sense of fa-melee-iarity? Good news: third-party accessory manufacturer PDP is working with Nintendo to produce the Wired Fight Pad, a controller designed after the original, fan-favorite GameCube controller.

The Wired Fight Pad will connect via a Wii Remote's bottom port, so you'll already need to own said Remote to use the Fight Pad. The good news is, that means it's also compatible with the Wii. The Wired Fight Pad will work with any of that system's games that support the Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro.

The Wired Fight Pad is set to release alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, with an estimated price of $24.99. We've been told to expect Smash sometime this winter.

Canary smart home app for iOS

Forget those rumors of an Apple smartwatch for now -- home automation may be where it's at. The Financial Times hears from sources that the crew in Cupertino is going to unveil a smart home platform at its Worldwide Developer Conference kicking off next week. While there aren't many details, proximity will reportedly play a big role; your house lights would switch on as soon as you come home with your iPhone in your pocket. Apple would also have a Made For iPhone-style program to guarantee that devices work with its system, and it would put a strong emphasis on privacy to counter fears about both its ad-driven competition and government surveillance.

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) will be your host today.

Good questions in The Queue today. I hope everyone in the States is having a safe Memorial Day, and remembering why many of us actually have the day off.

Gavstar22 asked:

My wife and I leveled a few characters to 90 and participated in a couple of raids at the start of MOP, after getting sick of giant tentacle killing in Cataclysm. Now we are back and have no idea what to do besides killing elites on the timeless isle. Our guild which was running 10 mans is now us and our GM (who spends time running dailies on alts)
  • Can we progress legendary cloak quest in LFR or do tokens still not drop?
  • What's with rare troll elites in Pandaria?
  • Anything new with archaeology as I like the new interface?
  • What are the achievements needed for LFR participation?
So many questions ! Basically we're a bit lost at the moment feeling disconnected from what's happened.

Some players may want to familiarize themselves with the world ahead of Watch Dogs' release tomorrow and need all the resources they can get. With that in mind, this video guides viewers through the game's map, courtesy of the YouTubers at PlayStation Access. The video does miss a few areas of the map, but generally winds its way across the game's version of Chicago.

Watch Dogs will launch tomorrow for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The Ubisoft Montreal-developed open-world game will also arrive on Wii U at some point, which Ubisoft said it is "fully focused on" earlier this month.

Can't get there from here, apparently.
As of this writing, the Letter from the Producer LIVE took place yesterday, and that means we have a whole bunch of Final Fantasy XIV news to discuss! It's a happy time for people like me, because it's at least a couple weeks of very chewable information to discuss. And at just the right time, too, we were in the middle of a serious drought there.

Not that all of the information is good, mind you. Every time I think about Atma my hands instinctively ball into fists.

Still, there's stuff to chat about, there's good stuff in with the bad, and perhaps most importantly there's enough to fuel some speculation and some off-the-cuff reaction before we dive into the meat of E3 and we learn even more about the future of the game. So let's get right into it, starting with the bit of news that I already foreshadowed in the intro.

Since the beginning, Apple has always included a Clock app in iOS, providing iPad and iPhone owners with a world clock, an alarm clock, a stopwatch and a timer. You likely are familiar with the basic functions of the app, so here are five tips to help you get even more out this simple, yet handy utility.

iOS clock

1. Tap on the clock in World Clock to change the clock style (iPhone only)

If you tap on the clock face in the World Clock on the iPhone you can switch between an analog clock and a digital clock. I prefer the analog version because its shows night and day, with a black clock face for locations where it is night and a gray one for daytime areas.

Clock seconds

2. Tell the time down to the second using the Clock icon (iPhone and iPad)

Did you know that the iOS 7 clock icon on your home screen is dynamic? It displays the current time and even has a red hand that ticks off the seconds. The seconds feature is useful when you need to time something for less than a minute and don't want to open a dedicated timer app.

Clock Weather

3. View weather around the world (iPad only)

Add your favorite cities to the Clock app in iOS 7, and you can quickly view their weather by selecting the World Clock tab. Only on the iPad, the World Clock displays a map that locates each city and highlights its time, temperature and weather conditions.

Clock Alarm iPad

4. Drag to change the time for an alarm (iPad only)

The iPad version of the Clock app displays each alarm on a calendar grid, allowing you to see your alarm schedule quickly and easily. If you want to change the time for an alarm, just tap, hold and drag it to a new time. You can adjust the alarm time in 15-minute increments using this method.

iOS Clock Sleep Timer

5. Use the timer to play music until you fall asleep (iPhone and iPad)

You can use the timer in the iOS 7 clock app as a sleep timer that plays background music as you fall asleep. Just open the Clock app, choose timer and set the amount of time you want the music to play. Tap on the "When Timer Ends" option, choose "Stop Playing" from the list and then tap on "Start" to begin the countdown process. Now open the Music app, select your favorite "fall asleep" music and relax knowing that your music will stop playing when the timer ends.

Submitter Virusus of Fights Like a Girl on Blackwater Raiders (US-A) left her boyfriend in charge of their campground for just a moment while stepping away to answer the call of nature. She returned to find this scene. Big jugs of alcohol and giant spiders do not mix well, folks! (Insert Australia joke here.) As you can see, Virusus mourned her loss for a few minutes before hearthing back to Darnassus to find herself a new, and hopefully smarter, man.

Want to see your own screenshot here? Send it to aroundazeroth@wowinsider.com. We strongly prefer full-sized pictures with no UI or names showing.

Square Enix has struck gold in the free-to-play, mobile gaming market with Deadman's Cross, a roleplaying game where players battle hordes of the undead using their wits and a lethal deck of cards.

A semi-sequel to the similarly free-to-play Guardian Cross, Deadman's Cross has been downloaded over three million times since its debut this past winter. To celebrate, the publisher has unveiled a "Triple Platinum" celebration, during which players will receive a bonus of 300 Deadman coins and the chance to earn special "Gold-Plated Boost Items." The celebration runs from May 27 to June 1, and while those bonus coins are a one-time offer, players will be granted a new chance at those Gold-Plated Boost Items each day until the festivities draw to a close.

If this has suddenly piqued your interest in the game, you can download your own copy of Deadman's Cross via the iTunes App Store or Google Play. As with all free-to-play games, it won't cost a dime to acquire the game, though Square Enix would be delighted if you'd spend real cash on the numerous in-game purchases available to virtual zombie hunters.
