Some time ago I've asked for some random facts about Android. I've gather some and put them together in a quiz. If you're interested in it, here it is https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yS2vhXEOD63vw2jjK6iiI-2KssOQVVcwwvcrPUnNWM8/edit?usp=sharing Feel free to use it in your company, if you wish. I did a Trivia game with those facts.

Here’s the fun facts version of above quiz
Copy code
<http://Log.wtf|Log.wtf> Stand For:

Fun Fact: <http://Log.wtf|Log.wtf> actually stands for "What a Terrible Failure" in Android development. When things go really wrong, developers use this logging method to indicate a severe error.
Stagefright Bug Impact:

Fun Fact: In 2015, the Stagefright bug affected a whopping 95% of all Android devices with versions ranging from 2.2 to 5.1. It was a challenging time for Android security!
Invalid Android Method:

Fun Fact: Among the quirky Android methods, ActivityManager.isUserAGoat() has never been a valid method. It seems like Android developers have a sense of humor!
Android Honeycomb's Unique Purpose:

Fun Fact: Android Honeycomb (3.0) is the only major Android version specifically designed for tablets and large-screen devices. It brought a sweet experience to bigger screens!
Inspiration for Android Logo:

Fun Fact: Irina Blok, the designer of the iconic Android logo, drew inspiration from the Men's bathroom sign. Who knew bathroom signs could lead to such a globally recognized symbol!
First Commercial Android Phone:

Fun Fact: The first-ever commercial phone running Android was the HTC Dream. It marked the beginning of Android's journey into the hands of millions of users.
Android OS Origin:

Fun Fact: According to Andy Rubin, one of the original co-founders of Android Inc., the operating system began as software for digital cameras. Imagine Android capturing moments in a different way!
Official Android Logo Name:

Fun Fact: The logo of the Android OS is officially called "Bugdroid" by Google. It's a nod to the technical challenges developers face, with a cache bug legend attached!
Android 4.4 Codename Before KitKat:

Fun Fact: Before settling on KitKat, Android 4.4 was supposed to be named "Key Lime Pie." Imagine the Android versions sounding as delicious as dessert menus!

perhaps you meant
UserManager.isUserAGoat()
? that's real. more importantly,
ActivityManager.isUserAMonkey()
an actually useful method. nothing quite like BeOS's
is_computer_on()
and
is_computer_on_fire()
functions, though
after Key Lime Pie was snatched from us, there was a push for Lemon Meringue Pie to name the next release, to the point where the keyword LMP was present in the code. but that didn't end up happening either
the doc misspells Andy Rubin…
