[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.

Google Releases App For iOS That Turns Video Clips Into Motion-Stabilized GIFs, And I Want It Now

Taking photos is fun, and so is taking videos. But what about that magical area in-between the two - something that is much more than a photo, but still substantially less than a full-on HD video clip with audio? We all, of course, are aware of the existence of GIFs and their imperfections, but they occupy this niche quite nicely, in particular because they're highly portable and easy to view on any device.

Google has released a new app for iOS recognizing this, but it's gone further yet, and made GIFs even more awesome. Remember HTC's Zoe? Remember when Apple basically ripped it off with Live Photos?

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.

Family Guy Pokes Fun At Samsung With A Giant Phone That Is Also A Tiny Car

So, Family Guy is still on TV, in case you were not aware. We don't have much opportunity to talk about animated network TV series on Android Police, but the most recent Family Guy episode featured an amusing dig at Samsung. Here's the punchline spoiler: Samsung's phones are really big. Ha. Jokes, I like jokes.

[Poll] Join AP For A Round Of 'Guess Which One Of These Phones Is A Real Product' With Your Host - Jeff Beck

Here at Android Police we are usually pretty straightforward, if perhaps a little snarky, with our presentation of the news. Every once in a while though, we run into a story so strange that it is worthy of a more creative approach.

We ran into a press release, a few days back, for a device that was so bizarre we couldn't believe it was real. I've described that device for you in the article below, along with three fake devices that I made up. When you are done reading you can answer the poll at the bottom of the page letting us know which device you think is an actual product.

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.
