Samsung launch Galaxy S5

At a global event launch in Barcelona, Samsung have released the new Galaxy S5 smart phone, which is expected to go on sale in over 100 markets on 11-April-2014.

One of the biggest changes is the new S5 will be IP67 certified meaning it is resistant to dust and water, finally combining the smart phone with the tough phone.  The S5 will follow the iPhone 5S lead and feature a biometric scanner (fingerprint reader)

The new camera will be 16MP with HDR and ability to focus in just 0.3sec, next to the camera and flash is a heart rate monitor, a new innovation for smart phones, however the S5 wont feature the 8 core processor that some of its S4 predecessors did, coming with a quad core 2.5GHz processor.

Queen Mary 2 hits Brisbane

Fanciful Cunard Line cruise Ship the Queen Mary 2 arrived into Brisbane this morning.  Due to its size it is unable to fit under the Gateway Bridge and therefore instead of berthing at the Portside Cruise Terminal it had to berth at Fisherman's Island.

However its location at Fisherman's Island did make for some good photo's from Luggage Point in Myrtletown, below is a selection of the pics I took on our "work sponsored field trip" (3 of us from our dept in a work car going to see it with the permission of the boss) These are all iPhone 5 pics - if I'd known I would be going to see the QM2 today, I would've bought my Canon along.
