Just imagine the look of surprise on an al Qaeda member's face when they thought they were loading a tutorial on how to "make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom" but actually got...a recipe for mojito cupcakes.
Real gingerbread, that is. You see, Japan is a wonderful place where food and tech cohabitate together in harmony. And Bar Android is no different, offering snacks and more based around the Android codenames (which are based around food).
When little green Android robots are young, they love to nibble on cupcakes. As they grow older though, their tastes change. They begin to explore donuts, eclairs, frozen yogurt and—-HEY! Somebody get that robot away from that apple!
Cupcake? Froyo? Ben&Jerry's? I can't be the only one who's unable to remember the various iterations of Android running on various handsets. This chart will clear things up...for a few weeks before its obviated by new firmware updates. [Android Tapp]
We thought the next version of Android would be called Flan, but Engadget is reporting "Froyo" to be the codename for Google's next iteration of mobile OS. On a slightly related note, with the current resurgence of the froyo craze, I feel sorta bad for TCBY. [Engadget]
The tireless tinkerers over at XDA have assembled a definitive guide to loading the Hero's custom-baked Android build onto G1s. It's fairly involved and a little risky, but hardly unfamiliar territory to HTC fans. [XDA, GetYourDroidOn—Thanks, Patrick!]
Official word about Android's 2009 roadmap has been handed down, and it contradicts the early scuttlebutt: the mobile OS will get not two, but three updates by 2010, each named for a slightly more esoteric dessert than the last.
