Unless you're a torrent release group, or run a popular warez site, you probably don't have much ASCII art in your life ever since JPGs took over. And that's a damn shame that can be easily remedied with this wallpaper.
If you needed any further proof that you don't need the most cutting-edge camera equipment to take beautiful photos, check out these shots by Jason Bognacki who attached a 1919 Piccolette Contessa-Nettel folding camera to his 5D Mark II.
The Keep Calm and Carry On poster has become quite the British icon. Actually, we're getting a bit sick of all the spoofs and parodies everywhere to be honest, but have you ever wondered where the original came from, and how did it get revived from a bygone era? Watch this three-minute video and wonder no more.
I spent literally months playing SimCity 2000 as a kid. I never was particularly good at it, but the ability to wield God-like city-building powers was just too irresistible to put down. Arguably the Sim franchise went off-the-boil a tad after SimCity 3000. Thankfully EA’s put Maxis back on the case, and we’re getting the most realistic SimCity yet that’s going back to its roots on the PC.
This 1968 promotional video for Honeywell's electronics and computing equipment also includes a glimpse of the company's work in obviously-faked-robotics. Miss Honeywell might be billed as the 'world's first robotic woman', but even Vicki from Small Wonder was more convincing.
Last year ThumbsUp! created an '80s iPhone case transforming your fancy Apple creation into the clunky bricks of that era. This year the company's back with a '90s iPhone case that instead gives it the flip-style functionality that none of us actually miss.
Have you ever thought about what a classic like SuperMario Bros would be like if you added a portal gun into the mix? Wonder no more; the folks at Stabyourself have released Mari0 – a glorious remake of the classic platformer now with just a touch of portal jumping-magic.
If you've already shaken your head in disgust at those retro handsets that turn your modern smartphone into the clunky desk phones of yesteryear, prepare to have an all out fit at this holster designed to let you carry them around.
Amongst all the classic techniques we've lost thanks to digital photography, you're probably noticed the vanishing of double exposure photography the least. But a new camera, the Minimo, is a 3.2 megapixel, double exposure shooter that will help bring it back. And you won't burn so much money on film this time.
In addition to still cameras, Lomography also makes the LomoKino which lets retro enthusiasts capture 35mm movies in all their scratchy, grainy glory. But sharing those creations isn't easy, at least without this smartphone adapter which lets you digitise your flicks.
I thought the class Homer had to take to become a monorail driver was a tongue-in-cheek look at what it takes to operate the trains of tomorrow. But glancing through this Disneyland Operator Guide from 1966, it doesn't look that difficult.
I love The Restart Page: it faithfully reproduces the restart and shutdown sequences of most graphic user interface-based operating systems since the times of the original Macintosh System. See if you can identify them all. It's really perfect, sound included.
I recently flew a Curtiss P-40 Warhawk from World War II (with three kills). It was a beautiful experience in a beautiful plane, but it pales in comparison with the P-51 Mustang. Watch and enjoy this amazing classic airplane porn.
