Piece of cake.

Whenever we get one of these mobile phone videos posted online, irrespective of the content, why does it never occur to the people who take them to rotate the phone so that we get a landscape format image? Even when the additional content wouldn't reveal much it would still be a lot more informative than the blank strips which border the video when it's in the display mode.
