Let's Rock with the Z4 (with Dr. Z's Help)!!! -- ZVRS Feature #4

For this week, Dr. Z is putting up features about the fantastic videophone that everyone is talking about–the Z4!

The Z4 has so many cool features and by giving it to you piece by piece will allow you to appreciate the power of the Z4! Some of these features may be documented, some may be hidden and some may not be documented–but don’t let this bother you–as a software pioneer himself, Dr. Z has found it best to not “read the stuff”, but play with the stuff–the actual experience is usually the best way to learn.

The fourth cool feature about the Z4 is the “record” button—it is the RED button on the right side of the screen, where the “self-view” screen appears. When you hit it during a connected conversation, you will be recording the conversation that is taking place. It will be a great way to record your grandchildren or your little nephews and nieces when they are on the other side of the videophone conversation. You can then save it and export it to be attached to an email by using the other “record” key on the left side of the screen (in the middle of the 4 buttons.) Try it! It only works when you are connected to someone in a conversation. To be fair to the other party, they will see a RED bar on the bottom of the screen to indicate that the conversation is recorded.


Cool. isn’t it? Check in with Dr. Z every day of the week this week (March 22-26) for more hints about the power of the Z4!
