Android Lollipop

Google have been naming the Android version based on a dessert item starting from C for Cupcake. So whenever there is a new Android version, everyone will be guessing what’s the name for the new version.

And its been announced recently that Android 5.0 will be called Lollipop. Not much surprised here unlike KitKat. Check out the hilarious “Casting Call” video.

Sorry, no Lreo. But hey, Oreo can try apply 3 versions later.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

There is a social media phenomenon known as the “Ice Bucket Challenge” going on in US now. The challenge involve dumping a pail of ice cold water over your head and challenging 3 other people to do the same within 24 hours or donate $100 to ALS Association which fights amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease)

This challenge has since become viral with celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon and Martha Stewart taking part in them. Even Tim Cook and Mark Zuckerberg done it.

But I guess the best ALS Ice Bucket Challenge goes to Bill Gates. Hey, he even found a chance to plug the latest Microsoft Surface Pro 3.

We should do this in Singapore too.
