What will Android P be called?

There are so many to choose from!

Published

It’s time to ask the age old question: What will Android P be named after? We’ve been through eight letters of the alphabet and eight different sweet treats. It’s not every day you get to say, “it all started with a cupcake,” but with versions of Android’s operating system, it’s a perfectly quirky fact.

From Android Cupcake to the most recent, Android Oreo, Google might have hit the alphabetical jackpot for this year’s version. These are just a few of the undeniably many treats that start with the letter P.

Popsicle

Is it the ice cold sweet treat perfect for the summer heat or a melting Bugdroid on a stick? Why not both! Google might just go simple and sweet with something that already looks like the Bugdroid. Who knows?

Pudding

It’s sweet, soft, and almost like jelly. If you want a safe choice when you’re picking desserts, you can’t get any safer than pudding! It’s a classic simple dessert with nice variants and it might just be what Google is going for.

Pie

Savory or sweet pie? Why pit them against each other when you can have both? From the classic apple pie, to seasonal pumpkin pie, to the strange stargazy pie, Google could be sending a message of how there’s nothing wrong with variety.

Pocky

It might not be likely, but after Google struck a licensing deal with Nestle and Nabisco for Android KitKat and Android Oreo, it isn’t as unlikely as we may think. This addictive chocolate-coated biscuit stick is the perfect snack. It wouldn’t be such a surprise if Google names their upcoming OS after it.

Parfait

Android Parfait might have a ring to it but it might be because parfait means “perfect” in French. You might be more familiar with the American spin of the French dessert where they layer granola, nuts, cake, yogurt, and fruits in a tall glass. With this dessert, Google could be saying this version is a perfect mix of many things.

Did you get to name a ton of sweets that start with P or did you Google, “sweets that start with P”? Let us know what you think Android P will be called in the comments below!

Many of us are coming up with new routines as we stay indoors. If you’re finding it hard to find a physical activity that you can do in a limited space, yoga is something you can try.

Practicing yoga may look easy, but doing it right can be pretty challenging, especially when you’re only following a YouTube video. YogiFi is an AI-powered yoga mat that provides guided instructions and real-time corrections on your poses.

The sensors on the mat tracks your yoga sequences and tracks your vitals before and after each session. This lets you track your progress so you can feel more motivated the next time you hit the mat.

It comes with a companion app that offers 25 programs. You can select your personal trainer and set your goals.

YogiFi is live on Kickstarter and is currently available for backers at US$ 199.

When gyms are out of reach and when your home doesn’t have any equipment, how do you continue your pursuit of an active and healthy lifestyle?

In a time when we absolutely need to stay at home, Nike runs its ‘You Can’t Stop Us’ campaign so we can still get physical.

Nike’s goal is to help everyone stay active, positive, and healthy — even when we’re all miles apart. Through their microsite, Nike shares tips and tricks tackling self-care, modified workouts, nutrition, and meditation.

For those who want to feel connected, Nike hosts community workouts through Instagram Live. Local Nike athletes, trainers, and coaches lead live-streamed sessions — whether it’s HIIT, Hip-hop dancing, or power yoga. Schedules are updated weekly, so it’s best to check it from time to time!

Schedule for May 25-29, 2020

If you just want to focus on your own workouts, Nike Training Club can be a great companion. The app houses free workouts you can do at home, which will help you with strength, endurance, and mobility. There are also guided yoga sessions, in case you’re into that.

Personally, I enjoy Nike Training Club’s bodyweight exercises, and I’ve been using their Bodyweight workout plan. In case you didn’t know, you can create a workout plan (and modify it to your liking) so you can commit yourself to an active and healthy lifestyle.

The Nike Training Club app is available on the Play Store and App Store.

GrabTaxi resumes operations this May

GrabPay will double as contact tracing system

Published

on

Grab Philippines is now resuming GrabTaxi operations as more areas in the country ease their travel restrictions. As a safety precaution, the company is also adopting new measures that will be implemented once GrabTaxi’s operations resume.

Grab is implementing cashless transactions for all its GrabTaxi fleet once service resumes on May 22. The company has already trained more than 7,000 drivers in preparation for the change. It has trained and encouraged drivers to use its GrabPay service to minimize physical cash transactions. After all, banknotes and bills encourage the spread of the virus that cause COVID-19 disease.

Using GrabPay will also benefit the public by acting as an efficient contact tracing system. Combined with Grab and Department of Health’s (DOH) contact tracing platform, the service will allow for faster and accurate contact tracing whenever possible.

The first two cities where GrabTaxi will resume operations this May are Baguio and Naga City. Around 400 drivers are to be deployed in these cities as operations resume. Grab is targeting to train more GrabTaxi drivers in handling cashless transactions along with other safety and health practices so they can quickly resume their jobs once restrictions are lifted. Those interested in undergoing the training can visit Grab’s website.

Elsewhere, Grab has also introduced cashless payments for the rest of its services. Grab users can now use GrabPay to pay for their essential goods and services. With GrabPay coming to GrabTaxi, users don’t have to bring physical cash and risk themselves to COVID-19.
