Wasabi, strawberry cheesecake, green tea, dark chocolate, sweet potato. What do these flavors have in common? They’re all KitKat varieties exclusive to Japan. But how did the crispy, break-associated candy get so popular overseas?
Updates to Google’s Android mobile OS take famously long to roll out to actual consumers, but here’s one stat that really puts things in perspective: 16 months after Google first released Lollipop 5.0, it’s finally the most popular (not by a majority!) version of Android.
It's been a while since we last heard of a software update for Glass and now I guess we know why. The team over at Mountain View has been busy updating the face-computer to run on the latest version of Android (4.4.2 a.k.a. KitKat).
Bluetooth speakers are all the same right? You connect your phone to them to wirelessly beam bumping music. Not Vizio's brand new Smart Audio speakers though. Vizio's Bluetooth speakers also have a freaking Android tablet running Kit Kat built in. Yes, there are 7-inch and 4.7-inch tablets on speakers now.
Android KitKat was just announced yesterday, and both carriers and manufacturers are already promising to roll it out as soon as possible. You don't have to sit around and wait though, you can get some of KitKat's newest and best features for the phone you already have, right now. Here's how.

Thanks to newly released regulatory documents by the FCC, we seem to have confirmation that a "Nexus 5" will, in fact, be coming to us from LG sometime relatively soon.
Some things are just too dumb to not be fun. Here's the Android KitKat logo, in 3D, which you can drag around and spin in circles, for no reason at all, except that it's the funnest.
Well, would you look at that. In Google's unveiling video of the new Kit Kat statue of Android, a mysterious Nexus phone appears in the hands of a Googler taking a picture of said Kit Kat statue. It doesn't look like any Nexus phone we've ever seen, the Nexus logo is horizontal, the camera seems significantly larger…
