On August 21st, a solar eclipse will sweep across the entire United States for the first time since 1918. Android is helping you experience this historic natural phenomenon so you can learn more about the eclipse and count down to the big day - when you’ll meet the next release of Android and all of its super (sweet) new powers, revealed via livestream from New York City at 2:40PM ET.

If a new operating system version is released, but nobody's able to use it, has it really been released?

MS used to have RTM - released to manufacturers. Was that "technically not a release"? The entire idea that it's not a release is flawed and ridiculous.

If you want to make a point about locked boot loaders make it. If you want to discuss the merits and demerits of constantly updating (and changing, and making hardware slower) software, make that, and we can discuss. Blunt hardline position statements are an end point. There's no productive way forward.
