Dual Camera Technology


The pioneer in Dual Camera technology for mobile devices is Corephotonics located in occupied Palestine (Israel).As this technology trend advances the many Mobile phones OEM like Sony, Samsung, Apple, LG, Oppo, ets embraced this technology as their leading edge advantage over their competitor. But there is much confusion as to the design and implementation by each OEM.
It is a evolution as the various OEM each have their own objective to their implementation. Some for combined higher resolution, some for separate wide angle and portrait lens, some for 3D effect, for night vision etc. the wish list goes on and on. Some are even implementing 4 camera lenses!

HOMTOM Mobile Phones

You can visit their support page to download most of their phones firmware.

In April 2018 HOMTOM introduced their master piece model the 6 inch phablet - HOMTOM HT70 Naugat ,MTK 6750T Octa Core powered ,with     4 Gb RAM and 64 Gb ROM.All this at a budget priced you can get it at a bargain of below  USD150 or even less. 
Too bad it doesnt come with Android Oreo. My personal preference is for phones with screen size of 6 inches to 7 inches (Lenovo Phab 2 comes to mind but it comes only with Marshmallow)
See my user experience on page later pages

HOM TOM HT70 6" 4/64GB Android Nougat

Instructions are given in PDF format that links to external sites (no ads) for suitable MTK drivers download and also copies of the apps that I used to successfully flash my phone. The "modified" firmware assembled from original Hom Tom source minus stock recovery and TWRP 3.11 inserted a modified boot loaders minus all the "**.verified" files that should remove additional unforseen problems that should arise during attempted flashing. P/S : you should be assured of a successful flash if your PC recognised the phone in fast adb mode.  


Note : Antutu  CPU Benchmark score for MT6750T are very poor compared to QualComm MSM 8996 or Exynos 8890, they average below 50% of those QualComm and Exynos.

IBM/MS - DOS - Reminiscence

There was not always an MS-DOS from Microsoft, and it wasn’t even dubbed that at birth. The history is worth reviewing now that we in the Multitasking, multi threading, GUI Windows era.

Back in 1980, the ruling PC operating system was DigitalResearch’s CP/M for the z80 processor. Tim Patterson created Quick and Dirty Operating System (QDOS). This was a CP/M clone with a better file system for the processor of the day, the 8086. At the time, no one cared much.

Then, IBM decided to build an 8086-based PC. For this new computer, IBM needed to settle on programming languages and an operating system. It could get the languages from a small independent software vendor called Microsoft, but where could it get an operating system?
The then 25-year-old Bill Gates recommended to go straight to the source: CP/M’s creator and Digital Research founder, Gary Kildall but whether Kildall was really out flying for fun when IBM came by to strike a deal for CP/M for the x86 or not, he didn’t meet with IBM, and they didn’t strike a deal.
So IBM went back to Microsoft and asked it for help in finding an operating system. It just so happened that Paul Allen, Microsoft’s other co-founder, knew about QDOS. Microsoft subsequently bought QDOS for approximately $50,000 in 1981. Then, in short order, IBM made it one of the PC’s operating systems, Microsoft renamed QDOS to MS-DOS, and, crucially, it got IBM to agree that Microsoft could sell MS-DOS to other PC makers. 

That concession was the foundation on which Microsoft would build its empire.
