One Full Circle

Come one full circle and I’m back to the Samsung S series; S5! Yeap, you heard that right – I have ditched the iOS and opted for the Android instead! No seriously, being an avid fan of the Apple stuff (especially their computers), I’ve moved on from the iOS to Android, back and forth to which I finally got back to the Android family! I had so much control over my previous phone (Samsung S2) that I really missed it badly and always spoke good of it! So to a wonderful journey ahead…

SquareIT

With me being an avid fan of the photo app, Instagram and how nice each photos turns out each time it was cropped into a square. But I know that there are just times when you want to share something non-squared and for those on the Android platform, don’t fret! You have SquareIT, I can’t quite say that it’s the equivalent of Squaready (for the iOS platform) but I’m actually loving the simplicity of the interface, with very simple steps needed and nothing too fanciful. But with all the pros/cons in an app, I hope that SquareIT would have an update soon with more choices of layout on how the photos can be placed within the area.

Tell me if you have downloaded the app on what you like/hate about it?

Yashica Electro 35 GTN

So (not so) recently, I was contemplating between 2 cameras – an Olympus XA2 or a Yashica Electro 35 GTN. What got me thinking is because I used to own a Olympus XA2 but have suffered a bad death aka “Lionel” – the spool got stuck and couldn’t move anymore, yet I’m still in love with it, so how?

The hunt for a camera began, till a seller that I contacted advised me to get the Yashica instead of an Olympus which was limited in photography capabilities. Since the Olympus was a ‘point and shoot’ in comparison of the Yashica that it a ‘range finder’.

The only cons of the Yashica is that the lenses are fixed, BUT it’s definitely producing awesome shots, which is not so new anymore.

I’d have it up in the next post.

nexus one

The Nexus One is the first google phone and is the latest entry in the technology arena. It is a google phone built by HTC. It has been launched in the market on 5th January, 2010. Of course it’s not only a phone that syncs itself with all google applications, think Googlemail, GoogleCalendar, GoogleDocs, GoogleTalk and the endless other Google possibilities it could have. The Phone is sold at google.com/phone.

The phone runs on a Qualcomm 1 GHz Snapdragon chip, has a super high-resolution OLED touchscreen, is thinner than the iPhone, has no keyboard, and two mics. The mic on the back of the phone helps eliminate background noise, and it also has a “weirdly” large camera for a phone. And if you don’t like the touchscreen keyboard, a voice-to-text feature is supposed to let you dictate emails and notes by speaking directly into the phone.

Singapore is one of the few (lucky) countries who is able to get their hands on this latest gadget, read Straits Times for more details.
