So I recently joined IDRTG (http://www.innovatty.com/twitter/IDRTG/), an Indie developers’ retweet group, and my tweets’ reach has increased to o.o. Awesome.
Finally bought a Macbook Pro :)
So Packt Publishing recently released a couple of iPhone and iOS books:
And the wonderful people that had been giving me free books, asked me to hold a giveaway contest, so that well, you guys can get them too.
How to join? All you have to do is visit the 3 book pages and mention one feature about a particular book that makes you want to own it.
You can leave a reply here on Tumblr (using reply or Disqus comments) or tweet me (@purplelilgirl).
So um yeah, that’s it. I will be giving away one of each book. :)

As I mentioned in my previous post: Autodesk Photofly (http://labs.autodesk.com/utilities/photo_scene_editor/) creates a 3D mesh using a collection of images of a certain object, in this case, Stitch. The program lags like hell on my laptop, but the result is just awesome.
Playing with Stitch and Autodesk Photofly (http://labs.autodesk.com/utilities/photo_scene_editor/). Basically, you take pictures of an object at every 10 degrees (my sis used the panorama function of her Canon HS digital camera), and then you upload the pictures to the Autodesk Photofly cloud, and it perform its magic, and then sends you an email to inform you that it has finished turning your photos into a 3D mesh, which you can still edit (if you want) in the Autodesk Photo Scene Editor. You can even define an animation path (pan, orbit, zoom etc. on your model) and export a video, which you can upload to YouTube. I think you can even manipulate the 3D model using design software.
It is soooo awesome!
