The Google Android operating system has gone through a number of names, that include: Ice Cream Sandwich and recently Jelly Bean. The next iteration needs to have a 'K' and Google have opted for KitKat(R)! Yes the original biscuit bar, and at the time of writing this post, there were obvious links to both products!
First of all I thought it was a spoof, but the reality is they are completely serious. The most refreshing part is that there is no actual money changing hands between Nestle and Google. There appears to be a mutual agreement to use the logo and name, the Google team apparently have KitKat's as their late night programming chocolate snacks (Source: BBC News). I think it is good to see companies using their products in clever ways. :) Roll on the new update for KitKat 4.4 on Android systems! Enjoy the video :)
