[New App] CyberLink Brings The Award-Winning PowerDirector Video Editor To Android Tablets

There are a handful of video editors available for Android, but CyberLink is attempting to raise the bar with the release of its popular PowerDirector software for Android tablets. Immediately upon opening the app, experienced video editors will see a UI that looks familiar to that they've been using on desktops for years, albeit much simpler. Here it is running on a Nexus 7.

After 5 Years Of Privacy Wrangling, Google Street View Finally Launches In Greece

For nearly half a decade, Google has been barred by a Grecian privacy authority from bringing its Maps Street View service online in the country, citing concerns of, you guessed it, privacy. After significant negotiation, last year that authority authorized Google to start using collected data from its Street View vehicles (which, in Europe, appear to be Astra diesel 5-door hatches) on Google Maps. As of yesterday, Google finally published the first street view images for Greece.

Mantis Vision Shows Off A Concept Demo Of Its MV4D 3D Engine That's Found In Google's Tango Tablet

Yesterday, Google unveiled its Project Tango tablet dev kit, which is packing some of the most beastly hardware we've ever seen in an Android device: NVIDIA's Tegra K1 chip, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of solid-state storage, and multiple sensors and cameras to do what Tango does. What wasn't really discussed, however, is the 3D engine that will run the show. We're now getting a little closer look at how that could possibly work thanks to a new concept video from Mantis Vision, the company that produces the technology used for 3D data manipulation in Project Tango.

Google Begins Distributing The Latest Proprietary Binaries For Nexus Devices As "Previews," Should Stay In Sync With AOSP Master Branch

Most people familiar with the Nexus program know that each new Android update usually brings with it a new set of driver "blobs" for each supported phone and tablet in the product line. Even though these proprietary binaries are usually the latest versions when they come out, Google still occasionally receives updates to the drivers even when it's not a good time to issue an OTA. As we've just witnessed from the long lead time on the 4.4.3 release, it can take quite a while before an update is rolled out.
