Gone are the times of the actually-blue print and waning are the days of drawing architecture by hand. Today, more models than not are also programmed into a computer and, with the press of a button, generated by a laser-cutting or similar machine. Technology has made all kinds of amazing things possible for architects, but what is being lost along the way … and are there still designers who will rise to the challenge of mixing real-life models and drawings with new-school digital design programs?

Here’s an awesome How-To on detecting manipulations of digital images. Many of the techniques rest on the difference in image statistics among natural captures, algorithmic manipulations and manual editing. Good stuff if you’re interested in how ‘fauxtography’ can be detected and dissected.

For those not aware, when you compile an Objective-C application, whether it be for the desktop or for Cocoa Touch devices, the debugging symbols are stripped out of the binaries. Therefore, unlike other languages such as Java, when a crash occurs, there is virtually no way to determine where the crash occurred. However, when the applications are compiled, a dSYM bundle is generated. This bundle allows us to match up the debugging symbols with the application’s crash log to help determine the cause of the crash.
