Google tweets that it's 'whipping up something sweet' in honor of Android's birthday

Android debuted on Sept. 23 eight years ago, though Google has cooked up some type of celebration for Saturday.

The official Android Twitter account caught our attention this morning with a rather mysterious tweet. It features the Android mascot with a hand whisk and a bowl of eggs surrounded by KitKat bars, marshmallows, and nougats.

You probably get the reference to the Android versions, but beyond that it isn’t clear exactly what’s going on here, other than Google having some fun at our expense.

Android launched on Sept. 23, 2008, which would make today the actual birthday. But just like in real life, sometimes celebrations get moved to the weekend so more people can partake.

We don’t have any insight into what the plan is here, whether it’s just going to be some more tweets, burrito drones, or random giveaways. You never know with Google, so keep an eye on the Android twitter account tomorrow to see what goes down.

Why this matters: Google likes to do attention-grabbing antics, so this is right up the company’s alley. It also can’t hurt to get some attention with a high-profile smartphone launch around the corner. We expect to see the Pixel and Pixel XL unveiled by Google on Oct. 4, so tomorrow could serve as an appetizer along the way.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
