YouTuber builds a working hoverbike using propellers, still has both legs http://tnw.me/aBSVAe7
Now that the word 'hoverboard' has been misappopriated by underwhelming pseudo-segways, perhaps its time to turn to the hoverbike instead. YouTuber and plu

Want to write for +Android Police?

I'm looking for a competent candidate with excellent communications skills and lots of experience writing about and tinkering with Android, preferably due to having worked for another Android or tech blog.

The position is freelance, so you'd be able to work remotely in your underpants if you so desire. We routinely need to cover 2x the amount of material we have manpower for, and I want to beef up our staff.

You will have the opportunity to review various hardware down the road, travel to conferences, like CES, MWC, and I/O, and generally become a full member of the AP team.

I'm primarily looking in the U.S. for travel proximity reasons, but my experience does prove that there are plenty of eligible candidates outside the U.S. (have you seen what +Rita El Khoury brings to the table, for example?), so I'm not going to rule out a possibility of non-U.S. folks getting accepted.

Bonus points for having experience with graphic design tools, ability to produce and edit videos (especially if you're in the LA area close to +David Ruddock and +Mark Burstiner), and thinking outside the box (editorials, long reviews, think pieces, etc.).

How to apply: Send an email to jobs@androidpolice.com and include a mention of this post and an introduction that will leave me no choice but to select you for the job. Don't forget to also list your experience and link to your best writing examples available on the web.

Remember: first impressions count a lot, and I'm probably going to receive several dozen emails, so yours will need to stand out or die. Take your time, pore over every word, re-read the email before sending, and then do it again (that's what you'll be doing with your posts). Do it right.

Hopefully, you can be the next +Cameron Summerson, +Eric Ravenscraft, or +Ron Amadeo (our distinguished AP alumni). Or you can just be the next you. That works too.

Please note that due to the volume of applications, I may not be able to respond to you in a timely manner (or at all).

Good luck!

New redesigned search experience, customizable movies, and more

Rolling out now, the latest Google Photos update helps you find your photos faster with a new search bar. Start searching in one tap, or scroll down after tapping on the search bar to see faces, places, and photo types from your library.

In addition, Google Photos now offers the ability to customize automatically created movies with your own music, photos, and videos, so it’s easier than ever to make the perfect video after a holiday or trip. It’s also perfect for Mother’s Day – which you knew was coming up on May 8, right?

Finally, it’s now possible to rename or delete device folders you’ve created and manage your photos on SD cards by adding a new folder, copying, and moving photos.

These changes make Google Photos faster and easier to use than ever, and will be coming soon to iOS.

Get the latest Google Photos update for Android (v1.19) in the Play Store: goo.gl/55OnIr
