You've probably seen his name in the credits of the Simpsons, though he was only with the show for its first four seasons.  After making millions creating the Simpsons with Matt Groenig and James L Brooks, Simon all but retired in his thirties and spent his time fighting for animal rights and rescuing and training dogs.  

Simon passed away today after a long battle with colon cancer.  His fortune will be donated to animals in need, and his legacy will live on in our laughter.  Join us in remembering his work on the Simpsons.

Amidst all the Pokémon GO madness, it's heartwarming, bittersweet moments like this that can really strike a chord of positivity in an otherwise mad and wild circus.

So, when a Japanese Pokémon GO player tweeted that he found his deceased younger brother's favorite pokémon beside his headstone, it's a nice bit of serendipity.

On Sunday morning Anton Yelchin's Jeep rolled down his driveway, pinning then crushing him against a brick post outside of his house in Los Angeles, California. It just so happens the car that caused this horrific fatality was a 2015 Grand Cherokee, and among over one million more cars/SUVs filed for recall by Fiat Chrysler. 

More than 100 crashes have been reported to date, due to gear selector problems that can confuse drivers about whether their cars are in park or not.

Maxis Emeryville, the studio responsible for SimCity and Spore, has been shut down.  Here's what EA has to say (via Kotaku):

Today we are consolidating Maxis IP development to our studios in Redwood Shores, Salt Lake City, Helsinki and Melbourne locations as we close our Emeryville location. Maxis continues to support and develop new experiences for current Sims and SimCity players, while expanding our franchises to new platforms and developing new cross-platform IP.

These changes do not impact our plans for The Sims. Players will continue to see rich new experiences in The Sims 4, with our first expansion pack coming soon along with a full slate of additional updates and content in the pipeline.

All employees impacted by the changes today will be given opportunities to explore other positions within the Maxis studios and throughout EA. For those that are leaving the company, we are working to ensure the best possible transition with separation packages and career assistance.



Don't worry though, there are still four other Maxis studios to keep your Sims going.
