Unfortunately, it has a few vulnerabilities around buffer overflows, privilege escalation, and diabetes.

KitKat is suppose to be what you use when you need a break and are taking it slow.

Is that really what you want representing your OS?

How many licks does it take to get to the center of Android?

It's not really "Branded" as such -- nobody goes around saying they have an "Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich", for example.  It's just the model number(?) (designation?) for the operating system.

I was going to guess lemon meringue, since we apparently missed out on pie this time around, but yours is probably more likely.

It's a cross-promotional thing between Google and Nestle.

Hrm. Wish they had mentioned that on ZDnet. That's what I get for reading a different article other than the one linked.

I like Kit-Kats and all, but I don't think it works very well.

People really care about this enough to complain about it?

Why?

I thought Key Lime Pie was for Android 5.0? They say that 4.4 is Kit kat. Article also mentions 4.4 is to be released October, which was when everyone was expecting 5.0 to launch. Either way, hurry up and release the Nexus 5 Google, my Incredible 2 is starting to really show it's age.

Nevermind, found an article with actual information. God forbid the link actually report some real news.

They're all gonna laugh at you in the line at the Apple store.

*Don't ever doubt that Google is an advertising company. That is where all their $$$ come from.

Just because it really hasnt been mentioned, this is pure gold from both end.

Google is naming it Kit Kat which helps Hershey

Kit Kat is using a special promotional deal where you could win a Nexus 7 or Google Play Credits which helps with the ecosystem

One great brand being associated with another

It is just win all the way around

Nexus 5 announced in October, available in November. That part is an educated guess

Hell no, I loved that movie.

YodaBlues: Either way, hurry up and release the Nexus 5 Google, my Incredible 2 is starting to really show it's age.


My Galaxy Nexus is definitely in need of replacement.  Hopefully, the rumors about the top-spec Nexus 5 being released for November pan out.

The best Kit-Kat commercial lifted the marimba riff from Changes by Yes:

Give yourself a break

Not to be left out of the fun, Apple has announced the next Mac OS:

I prefer their original internal naming scheme, which had them named after fictitious robots, the first two being Astro(boy) and Bender (probably followed by C3PO, Data, Eve (Wall-E), Futura (Metropolis), Gort (The Day the Earth Stood Still), Himey (Get Smart), etc.)
