720p Video Recording on the Google Nexus 7

Tablet cameras generally don’t live up to their potential. There are a variety of reasons for this, but most notable is that people don’t often use the camera on a tablet. A tablet is too big and bulky to be used as a camera under most circumstances, so OEMs generally don’t put much work into camera software.

That said, this doesn’t mean that the actual camera units themselves are worthless. Rather, they can often be modded to produce better content. Such is the case on the Google Nexus 7, which can now record video at 720p. Installation is simple, requiring that users edit their media_profiles.xml file.

While a flashable zip will most likely come in the future, it’s fun to edit the file manually. XDA Recognized Developer hillbeast who created the guide, includes before and after videos.

Watches: Luxurious Frivolity vs. Humble Practicality

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want.
