Google I/O announcements day 1

Source: Google

Google's annual 3 day tech conference called Google I/O started today and here are some things of note from day 1.

Google wants your help naming Android N

At  Google I/O conference today, one of the presenters expressed how difficult it was to continually come up with dessert names for their Android operating system.  Well, now they asked for your input. If you head over to you will be able to provide your suggestions for the official name of Android N.

Past names have been sweet treats like Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop and Marshmallow so think of something sweet and you might have a chance.

Nachos, Nougat, Nerds, Nestle, Nuts, something along those lines might work.
