Really? I think it's exactly opposite. I can imagine Nestle cash flow in the direction of Google. It's one sweet marketing campaign. They had "Key Lime Pie" ready, but the opportunity was just too good for Nestle.

Personally I'm not a great fan of eating sugar in amounts resulting in health risk, so as a rasult, I don't buy Nestle stuff. Nontheless, I have to say they nailed it. Check out android.com and kitkat.com - perfect.

Default Childish names steer serious buyers away - 09-04-2013, 17:55 | posts: 43

I don't get all of these lame names from Google.
This "Kiddy/Toy" feeling the names brings dissuades me from purchasing their products and have stuck with the iPhone in large part due to the childish names from Google. I want a working device not a children's play thing or developers that look at it as such.

Maybe next release will be called Android Cheesy.

Nestle happens to be providing all of the meal replacement that the prisoners at Gitmo bay are being force fed, as well is a key lobbyist along with Monsanto to limit what labeling on food is required by law.
That's right. They don't want to have to tell you what they are feeding you.

Here's another Nestle advertising ploy that failed badly... Lets revive that and see what it does for KitKat marketing.

Of all the reasoning based on technicalities I'd expect in a tech-related forum and here we get someone who hates Android because of its version naming.

Then again I also avoided Apple products because their late CEO's first name sounded like Ballmer's.

Clearly you don't get it as the letter following 'K' in the alphabet is 'L'. Cheesy starts with a 'C'. I know it's complicated, but come on, they even used fun food names to make it easy for you. Maybe they need to dumb it down a bit further.

I'm still gonna call it Key lime pie. I just wonder what L is gonna be. Lemon head? "Yeah, I'm running Lemon Head on my Nexus 5." Something just doesn't sound right about that...

Maybe they'll put out Kit-Kat bars in the shape of a Nexus now. Boy would that get confusing at snack time. "WHY'S THERE A CHUNK MISSING OUT OF MY PHONE?"

And I wonder who'll be the first to get it running on an OG Droid.
