Review: iAscii Art

Turning photos into Ascii art may seem like useless parlor trick (and it is) but to many tech geeks who began their lives using DOT Matrix printers to print out “pictures” using Ascii characters, Ascii art still holds a special place in our hearts. I actually remember the first naked woman I ever “saw” was an Ascii rendering of a woman from a program called... Read More

Anyone know how to program for the iPhone? I have an idea…

Hello faithful readers. Like just about everyone on the planet, I have come up with an idea for (what I feel is) an incredibly important iPhone application that I would love to see made. No, it is not another Sudoku game or tip calculator – at the risk of sounding melodramatic, I feel my app could potentially save lives. Unfortunately, I don’t yet have my C and C++... Read More
