Create time-lapse videos easily with Microsoft Hyperlapse app

A few years back, in order to create an impressive video with time-lapse editing, you needed one or two high-end cameras, a tripod or two, plus hours of editing the footage you've collected. With the technology and apps available now, the process has been pared down considerably.

Boot Linux or Windows 8 from your Android device with DriveDroid

All of us within the Android community would agree that Android as a mobile platform would go a long way even after all the letters in the alphabet have been used up. From this year's Android M until Android Z a decade from now, we'd only see the platform evolve.
