Last December, I was lucky enough to get my hands on an Irex Iliad. E-readers are an emerging technology which haven’t yet caught on with the general public. In fact, many people don’t realize such things even exist – I’ve encountered many of these while reading on the bus. I thought that now that I’ve used and owned one for 6 months it would be a good time to share my experiences. This won’t be a review per se but more an description of what it is like to use an Iliad.
Lately, I have been watching a lot of Ghost in the Shell: SAC. In the show, the main antagonist is a Salinger-loving uber-hacker who has a tendency to replace faces in live video with his rotating-text logo. As with many of my projects, this piqued my interest, and sent me off coding. So, here to all of you, I debut the first version of my little python script, Warai, for replacing faces with logos. Hopefully I will add support for video in the future.
