Android Versions Named After Sweet

Have you ever thought why are Android versions always named after sweet names ??

Everytime a new Android version is launched its name is kept after a sweet name. Many people have researched about this topic and many have asked Google also. Have you ever tried to find out the core reason behind this? If not then you would find the answer here .

First of all let us first see what Google says about this :

In 2008 i.e. the year when Android was launched a reporter asked the reason for the same. At that time Google said

“It’s kind of like an internal team thing, and we prefer to be a little bit — how should I say — a bit inscrutable in the matter, I’ll say,” said Randall Sarafa, a Google spokesman. “The obvious thing is that, yeah, the Android platform releases, they go by dessert names and by alphabetical order for the most part."

After this in 2013 once again Google answered such question by saying

Android is the operating system that powers over 1 billion smartphones and tablets. Since these devices make our lives so sweet, each Android version is named after a dessert "

Still there were many researches going on and a lot of people had different opinions .

Some believed that as Android was developed Andy Rubin an ex- employee in Apple where his colleagues gave him the name of Android because of his love for robots. He also loved sweets more than anything in the world. So all the Android version names are kept after sweet or dessert names in the memory of its founder.

One more reason for the naming is that Google wanted to attract users by giving out some catchy names. And they thought Sweet names would be perfect. Google also didn't wanted to indulge in cases regarding patents and stuff like that so it kept sweet names as it believed most of the people don't think about these names and it will be unique too. Google has always named the versions in an alphabetical order which also gives it an uniqueness.

Although Google has still not mentioned the true reason but many are busy finding it, we will soon be able to know the true reason. Till that time enjoy reading our articles at High School Pedia .

Anode Ray Experiment

→Anode ray experiment was conducted by E Goldstein.

→These rays are also known as canal rays.

→This experiment helped in the discovery of the proton.

Apparatus Used A discharge tube was taken in which there were 2 electrodes i.e. Anode(+ve) and the cathode (-ve).The tube was filled with an inert gas.A perforated or porous cathode was used.
A layer of zinc sulphide was placed at the back of the cathode.There was a vacuum pump in the tube.High voltage (5000v-10000v) was allowed to flow through the system.It was observed that when the gas was at 1atm(atmospheric pressure) no change was seen in the tube. When thepressurewas decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.


SETS, RELATIONS & FUNCTIONSSets are a fundamental part of mathematics and it’s knowledge is very important in present. It defines the concepts of relation and functions. These functions are also very essential for present day maths. SETSSets are denoted by capital letters. They are similar to matrices whose elements are denoted by small letters. But in sets an element comes only at once. Sets are matrices which give a sense of belonging. This sense of belongingness is represented by ∈ .We can write anything in a set like rivers of India, Wonders of the World .etc.  For an example let there be a set of positive single digit. Let the set be denoted as A Therefore, 8 ∈ A  Also we can write, 17 ∈ A Set can be represented by two types  ROSTERIn roster form we write elements in curly brackets and separate them with comma.  If there be set of positive integers less than 10. Therefore the set will be {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}  SET- BUILDER FORMIn set-builder form we take a variable x and then gives its…

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones


These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass.They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same.But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different.As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons.Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.
