A postcard from Newark

I quite like the title “A postcard from Timico”. It suggests destination, travel, communications even which is quite appropriate in our case. The reality is often different. It could be a reminder to book your dental appointment! Yuk.

On this occasion it is merely a  clever ruse to entice you to read this blog post which in actual fact is simply about the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the fact that it has a really cool feature that allows you to take photos using both cameras simultaneously (at the same time).

The simple things in life eh? Postcard below shows my face on a stamp – it’s the only way it’s going to happen:) The beautiful view is across the car park to the ball bearing factory (or some similar industrial manufacturing plant) and beyond to the rooftops of our fair town of Newark.

I like that the hardware allows for this, on other phones I’m pretty sure you can only have one camera active at a time.

If this can also be used for video, that’s an interesting feature, because I sometimes use my Galaxy Nexus as a car journey recorder (I have a very nice purpose made Samsung car mount for it), and sometimes it’s useful to have a recording of what the driver was doing, as well as what’s happening ahead of you)

Sure as heck does work for video too. I tried it out on Steve Lalonde at breakfast on Tuesday morning. However I decided that the world was not ready for that video to be published:)
