[The Android Police Files #12] i am alone now

 

Much has changed since the last installment of the Android Police Files. The 5X and 6P are the latest Nexus devices. We know a great deal about Android N. Google's founders formed a new company and made Google a subsidiary.

But one thing hasn't changed — we still get some hilarious emails. Here's your latest glimpse at some of the more absurd corners of the Android Police inbox.

Really: Opinion Rewards survey asks if you'd like on-demand Wi-Fi drones to download movies on the go

If I were to walk up to you on the street and ask, "Excuse me, Android Police reader... What if a drone-based service existed to facilitate video download for poor internet connection (see image below for an overview of how it could work). Would you be interested," you might respond in one of several ways.

  • "David, you forgot the question mark."
  • "David, what image below? Below what? The ground?"
  • "David, what drugs have you consumed recently? May I have some?"

And I would grant you that all of the above responses would be quite reasonable given the inquiry I have just posed you, hapless person on the street.

[Hold The Door] Kickstarter's Latest Android Changelog Contains Bug Fixes... And Hodor

If you're a Game Of Thrones fan, you're likely well aware of the "hold the door" meme that has transfixed a good portion of the internet for the last couple of weeks. Kickstarter, too, it seems, is engrossed with the series' doorstopper of a storyline, as their latest changelog takes "Bug fixes and performance improvements" to a whole new level.

Off-Topic: This Hilarious Grand Theft Auto Parody Of Google's Self-Driving Car Will Start Your Day Off Right

The off-topic tag doesn't get a lot of use here at AP, but why have it if we aren't going to let it stretch its legs once in a while? I thought I'd start off the morning with a video I found particularly hilarious. Everyone knows about Google's self-driving, steering wheel-less car. It's adorable and, ostensibly, the future. But this GTA V parody of a news station's "first ride" clip from the car's public debut had me in absolute stitches, it's the funniest thing I've seen in weeks.

Just a bit of light, pedestrian-striking humor to get your day started. It's all in good fun, though; technological breakthroughs are worthy of the occasional well-intentioned mocking.

T-Mobile Goes After Verizon With A Drinking Game And Ball Ad Spoof

No one would mistakenly believe that T-Mobile wants the competition to succeed, but it does tend to take things to the next level. The carrier has been very vocal about its dislike of the other guys, and today brings two more proofs of that.

Still Don't Understand Twitch And YouTube Gaming? If Only There Were A Parallel We Could Draw...

Any time we talk about a service that lets you watch other people play games, some folks who still don't seem to understand the appeal behind watching games as opposed to playing them inevitably show up in the comments. There is a reason Amazon acquired Twitch for close to $1bln and Google's recently released YouTube Gaming app has already racked up over 100,000 downloads.

Loading Artist's latest comic (not considering Single Player that was posted outside of the regular schedule) attempts to explain this reason in a way these people may understand:

[The Android Police Files #11] i love android and want to write columns for u

Longtime readers of the Android Police Files will know that a couple things never change. Someone always mistakes us for the police. Someone else thinks we can fix any and all software-related problems. But then there's always a person that asks a question we never expect.

Here is the latest batch of letters. You tell us which are which.

Letter #1

facepalm

You can't. At least, not yet anyway. Such talk remains a rumor for now. But you're not entirely out of luck. Here's a simple process.

Step 1: Return your Lumia 535.

Step 2: Buy an Android phone.

Step 3: Run the Android apps.

[The Android Police Files #10] Lethal TREASON, Juuuuust Smthn To Ponder On

Now that the hustle and bustle of Mobile World Congress 2015 is behind us, we have time to address some of the comments and emails we've received over the past several months.

If this is your first time coming across the Android Police Files, here's what you should know: some of the people who reach out to us assume that there's a police force out there dedicated entirely to Android (whatever that means) or that we personally had a hand in every piece of code or software that comes out for their devices. Others are just plain paranoid.

Here, see for yourself.

Letter #1

This entry is not a letter, but a five-month-old comment (posted after our last edition of the Android Police Files) left on what is now a ten-month-old post titled "[APK Teardown] Google Play Services 4.4 Explodes With Android Wear Support, Firmware Installer, And Much More." It reads:

I dont really undrstand this stuff but in my personal opinion...as far as permussions go....well I think its all bs cuz they can get into n e thing on n e phone if they really wanted to.
