The new Android operating system has been announced. Android 4.4 will be … KitKat. Really.
In case you didn’t know, or just weren’t paying attention, Google names its Android operating systems after snacks, and in alphabetical order. Mostly.
Since then, though, the third one, Cupcake, began the alphabetical snack release: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo (frozen yogurt), Gingerbread, Honeycomb (for tablets only), Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, and now, KitKat.
Word is that originally, the latest release was going to be Key Lime Pie. Why? Cnet reports:
…”We realized that very few people actually know the taste of a Key lime pie,” said John Lagerling, Android’s director of global partnerships. The flavor of Kit Kats, he said, is more familiar to programmers than Key lime pie…
Seriously? Programmers don’t know what Key Lime Pie tastes like? While, sure, it’s a southern dessert, I’m just stunned that it’s an unfamiliar taste.
What foods with “K” would programmers know about? Ketchup. Krispy Kreme. Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Kool-Aid.
Wait. Scratch that last one. I think us iOS users drank all that.
Any good “K” foods that Android should’ve used? Whaddaya think?
