Should I get the Iphone5 or the google nexus prime?
I would go for the Nexus Prime. Comparing rumored hardware specs, the Nexus Prime will likely sport a 1.8GHz processor superior to the 1GHz processor of the iPhone 5. Internal storage on the Nexus Prime will also likely be higher. Comparing iOS 5 and Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, iOS gets a nice notifications bar (which Android has sported for some time now) but does get a nice BBM-like iMessage application. Overall, however, I would still pick the Nexus due to its superior processor.
Why Google named their Android versions after food?
Here you have my theory:
Android is the name of the operating system. First version release was the Android Beta as almost every other Google product. Now look at this:
A for Android
B for Beta
C for Cupcake
D for Donut
E for Éclair
F for Froyo
G for Gingerbread
I for Ice Cream Sandwich (last version of Android presented in last Google's I/O 2011)
So, it wouldn't be any surprise to witness an alphabetical parade of desserts continuing by Android Jello or Jelly (could be Jelly Cake, Tart or Pie as well) and ending by something close to Z (Is there any dessert name starting with a Z? LOL)
Besides the alphabetical order I'm not aware of any other key feature or conspiracy theory on the name of the Android versions (not yet, hehehe).
I hope this was helpful, or funny, or at least make you think of the new possible [alphabetically delicious] Android names.
Do you know a recipe for the cookie part of a traditional chocolate ice cream sandwich?
* 1/3 cup butter, softened
* 1/3 cup granulated sugar
* 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
* 1-1/2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
* 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 egg
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
* 1-1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled slightly
* 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
* Purchased colored granulated sugar or white non pariels (optional)
1. Let ice cream or frozen yogurt stand for 15 minutes to soften. Stir in fresh chopped fruit, if using. Spread mixture evenly in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Cover and freeze until firm.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Beat butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on high speed for 30 seconds. Beat in granulated sugar, brown sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, and baking powder until just combined. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Stir in melted chocolate. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour.
3. Divide dough in half. Roll each portion of dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with a 3-1/2-inch decorative cookie cutter. Cut out centers with a 3/4-inch decorative cookie cutter, if desired. Reroll any dough scraps. You should have a total of sixteen 3-1/2-inch cookies. Place cutouts on ungreased baking sheets.
4. Brush cookie tops with water and sprinkle with colored granulated sugar, if desired. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
5. To assemble, let ice cream or frozen yogurt stand for 5 minutes to slightly soften. Cut with the same 3-1/2-inch cookie cutter used for the cookies (will have 8 cutouts). Set out 8 of the cookies with the "wrong" side up. Place an ice cream cutout on top of each cookie. Top with a second cookie, pressing slightly to seal to ice cream.
6. Wrap each ice cream sandwich individually in plastic wrap; freeze at least 2 hours. Let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving. Freeze for up to 1 month. Makes 8 sandwiches.
actually this recipe was my mothers and if you add the chocolate it makes it softer but glad u liked it
You are correct. There will be a free Ice cream update in a future date for all tablets. However Google will issue the update but since it is Toshiba tablet, Toshiba will likely test it to make sure it is compatible with its tablets and tweak the software before issuing it to all users.
