The device will also be the first to feature the new version of Android, 4.3, which includes individual users profiles, which can be restricted so that, for instance, children cannot see in-app purchasing options that could land their parents with huge bills.

As soon as the New Nexus 7 is available in the UK I will be doing an unboxing and hands on review on my youtube channel – www.youtube.com/user/johnrshirley

GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition Slow Motion WVGA 240FPS

I wanted to see how good the shooting at 240FPS was with the new GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition and then slowing this footage down with just iMove ’11 and nothing else.  So I decided to do a few video tests and then slow them down to see what happened.  My first test was using a Dremel against some metal and watching the sparks fly off.  The slow motion effect of the sparks was quite impressive. My second test with the GoPro Hero 3 involved dropping a water filled balloon and watching it burst.  The first 2 attempts the balloon just bounced but gave a rather nice effect and then there are 2 balloons that burst again showing a nice slow motion effect.  My next test was water boiling in a kettle and then slowing this down.  My final slow motion test was filming some Torch Coral in my tank.  This gave one of the nicest effect in slow motion.
