Samsung makes some of the most sought after mobile devices on the market, however its camera offerings have not been completely at par with its rivals. A number of devices released this year came with optical image stabilization, whereas no Samsung device offered OIS despite countless rumors. Apart from that, the camera modules in its devices have received glowing reviews. One might expect Samsung’s camera offerings to get better over time, because if one is to believe reports coming in from Korea, the company has integrated its wireless and camera divisions.
What this means that Samsung’s camera division and its phone making division will now work directly with each other, so they’ll be able to work better as both divisions will be able to fully cooperate with each other. A Samsung official has been quoted in a local media report as saying that the “brand, sales, networks, software competency and manufacturing competitiveness of the wireless business division” will be integrated with the technical prowess of the camera division, which would result in competency for differentiating the company’s smartphones. Even if Samsung really has integrated these two divisions, and if the local media reports are true, then we’re likely to see improvements in the future. However, given the scale of an integration like this, its unlikely that any major results can be achieved in the very near future. So its likely that the Galaxy S5 might not have optical image stabilization after all.
Over the past few days quite a lot of Yahoo Mail users have been complaining about issues with the service. The company confirmed that due to a hardware problem on one of its mail data servers, users were facing issues in accessing Yahoo Mail. While the company has teams working continuously to resolve the issue, which it says has proven harder to fix than originally anticipated, Flickr experienced partial outages earlier today as well.
The popular image hosting service, which is owned by Yahoo, currently seems to be back up once again but it is unclear what caused the issue in the first place. In a statement provided to CNET, Yahoo confirmed that Flickr did experience an outage and that the company was working quickly to fix the issue. It also apologized to users that might have been affected by the outage. The company is already dealing with a major service problem, it would certainly not want another crisis on its hands. While support teams are working around the clock to get Yahoo Mail up and running again, partial disruption is still being experienced. Most users are able to gain access to their inbox, though the company says that some users will still have trouble in accessing in their accounts. Up to 30 percent of all emails sent during the outage have now been delivered, the company hasn’t offered a timeframe in which it expects to have Mail up a 100 percent.
