Google has changed the naming convention of their mobile operating system. After years of using alphabet letters, also associated with funny names of sweets, company decided to change the naming convention to numbers.
I was wondering how Google would name the Android after the Z version. I got the answer sooner than expected 😅 The Android's naming convention was a really cool idea from marketing perspective. But from practical point of view it was confusing to the users, so I'm surprised that happened now, but overall it is a good decision.

Spider-Man is leaving MCU
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will not produce next Spider-Man movies, which basically means that Spider-Man will no longer be part of the MCU. According to Deadline, the reasoning behind this decision is a dispute between Sony - which holds the rights to the character - and Disney - Marvel’s parent company - over revenue sharing from films.
This is a sad news, because the last 2 Spider-Man movies perfectly tied into the MCU making this universe reacher. According to some rumors the negotiations between Sony and Disney are still in progress, so maybe after current fans outrage, companies will find solution that will make everyone happy.
