Android N now officially has a name: Meet the new Android Nougat...

Finally, at long last and after a period of consulting with public opinion, Google has announced the official name of Android N, it is called *drum roll*: ANDROID NOUGAT. Yes, the people have spoken and they wanted Android 7.0 to be named after the nutty confectionary, the stuff that, amongst other places, you find inside a Mars bar. With the announcement of the name confirmed and talk already in circulation from major OEMs on forthcoming updates, it appears the final rollout is not terribly far off. Not to mention that after a long period of mysterious silence rumours and leaks are suddenly hotting up about the next crop of Nexus phones from HTC - the Sailfish and Marlin. In all likelihood these two phones will be launched within the next couple of months around the same time that Android Nougat is officially pushed to existing Nexus products. As per usual, third parties like Samsung and LG will prep their software updates to follow in the run up to Christmas and New Year, and into 2017. Where the whole cycle will start all over again!
Google talked about its plans for Android in the future pretty extensively at this year’s Google I/O 2016. The company has ideas about how it can solve fragmentation in its platform, but these are just ideas and it will still be quite some time before we see any advancements in this regard.
Something is required, though. Recent figures from Google’s Android Usage Page reveals just 10% of current Android handsets are running Android Marshmallow — that is an exceptionally low figure for a platform as big as Android. Even more so when you compare adoption rates to Apple’s iOS platform, despite the differences between how Google and Apple do things.

I decided to do this quick recount before it becomes over taking by event…ehm, before I forget to do so. No time to read over for errors. I'm serving it fresh and hot. On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…

Tupac Shakur’s stepfather up for parole after spending 30 years in prison

Mutulu Shakur (born Jeral Wayne Williams, August 8, 1950) is an American black nationalist and acupuncturist. He was a proponent of the Republic of New Afrika and a close friend of Geronimo Pratt.

Shakur is best known for his conviction on racketeering charges following the 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) and the infamous $1.6 million robbery of a Brinks armored truck in New York in which a guard and two police officers were killed. It was later found that an illegal project by the FBI, COINTELPRO, aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and neutralizing what they considered domestic political organizations, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., had targeted Mutulu as well as many of his comrades.  Mutulu Shakur is the stepfather of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur. He was captured, convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for leading a revolutionary group responsible for a trail of bloodshed, including the slayings of an armed guard and two New York polic…
