First, there was Cupcake. Then it was Donut. Then Eclair, and now Froyo. With the imminent release of “Gingerbread”, Android fans may be wondering what versions may be coming down the pike. In the tradition of naming code releases after successive letters in the English alphabet and tasty desserts, Google has announced that “Honeycomb” will follow over the next year and analysts are fairly certain that “Ice Cream” will follow that. But what comes after that? We're not sure, and Google hasn't announced them yet. Still, we think it might be a good idea, in the interest of customer feedback, to suggest future names for the remaining 17 releases. I've tried to avoid using brand names of products, as Google would likely run into trademarking issues if it used them. Sweet, sweet Android.
Trademarked and produced by the Nabisco company, and the best-selling cookie of the 20th century, with over with almost 500 billion produced since 1912, the Oreo is actually a knockoff of the less-popular Hydrox which was introduced four years earlier by the Sunshine company. Regardless of the origin, however, the cookie is distinctive, with the two dark chocolate crispy wafers sandwiching a sweet, creme filling. It is commonly believed that the wafer recipe was the result of a happy accident by burning the cookie batter during product development, but this might be an urban myth.
Zabaglione, or Sabayon, is a traditional Italian and French dessert and a loose custard made with egg yolks, sugar and sweet wine, such as Marsala, and dates back to the 15th century. Zabaglione is usually whipped in copper bowls by hand over a hot water bath to incorporate a large amount of air and to cause the custard to thicken faster due to copper's improved heat conductivity. The custard can be served by itself, topped with berries or also incorporated into other desserts.
