Google make a pudding of themselves as they drop their dessert-based naming convention for Android

Oh Google. Why?

In a world where tech takes itself far too seriously, your dessert-based names always brought about some fun as we all tried to guess what would be next and how you'd present it with your little Androidy mascot.

Was it just that Q was too hard a letter to come up with a suitable sweet for? Queen of Puddings would have done nicely - although to be fair, it feels a little as though you were coasting when the previous version was just called 'Pie'.

So, the seventeenth edition of Android to be released into the wild is now going to be called Android 10. Wait? What? 10? That's a bigger jump than Microsoft managed between Windows 8 and 10.
