Appidemic: Autumn Dynasty – RTS for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

Real time strategy gamers are a special breed. I’ve had numerous conversations with developers about the rabid RTS crowd, and how critical they are of each change that comes their way, while also being the most dedicated and loyal game fans they are. So, how will fans take to Autumn Dynasty – RTS? I suppose that depends upon what you felt about it when it was just Autumn Dynasty.

Why square format pictures are cool, even with an iPhone or iPad

Square format pictures are currently in vogue on social media and elsewhere, but they go back a lot farther, and some of us just like the symmetry and compositional simplicity. I’m a longtime fan of square photo compositions, having cut my serious photographic teeth on medium format 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ twin lens reflex (TLR) cameras using 120 or 220 rollfilm back in the 1970s.
