Comments on: OMG Internets http://thedesire.perris.id.au/42/omg-internets Adventures with my Desire Thu, 09 Dec 2010 20:39:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.3 By: Brendan Scott http://thedesire.perris.id.au/42/omg-internets/comment-page-1#comment-57 Fri, 28 May 2010 12:59:32 +0000 http://thedesire.perris.id.au/42/omg-internets#comment-57 Often cameras simply can’t focus too close. I did the same thing this morning with my old mobile taking a photo of my new Desire. See photo at bottom of this post:

I had to hold it further away (say from 40cm to 60cm) and then zoom in to compensate.

[The screen of the phone was dark compared to the background so the camera over exposed it and washed out the colours. I needed to change exposure compensation to get the screen looking black (look for a +/- sign) – but your screen looks black enough.]

I couldn’t get the camera to focus on the phone no matter what I did. I don’t think it could cope with the reflective surface.

Try moving the phone further away and zoom in.
You may also need to use exposure compensation on the camera if the screen.

As Xavier mentioned, the expected use-case is links on your home-screens to your favorite sites, or search results (from the search widget), or pages from applications.

I have discovered you can bookmark pages using the menu button, but saving them as a shortcut is a different matter altogether.

And don’t tell me how to do this (yet!).

In fact, it stores everything! It makes multitasking even easier.

For the casual user, I would recommend them to add a Bookmark shortcut in your main screen with your Home page there – that way you will have the effect you expected.
