Google Finally! Jean-Baptiste Queru (yes, husband of) has announced the source code release for Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (technically, it's 4.0.1). Naturally, this code dump also happens to include the source code for Honeycomb - however, due to Honeycomb's incomplete nature, there's no tags available for it. Not interesting from a let's-build-it-and-code-point of view, but it is interesting for ROM hackers - bring it on, ICS for my Galaxy SII!

Yeah, I read that too. Maybe it is the comment system but lately it seems that the Ars audience is way below the slashdot crowd from a knowledge level.
(TBH the articles also aren't as good as they used to be, most of them are just superficial blog posts. Truely awesome stuff like their file system article from a lot of years ago are nowhere to be seen as of late.)

Wow, is that even theoretically possible?

Jon Stokes (IIRC), a very bright gentleman now writes articles for Wired.com, which explains why a lot of their really interesting, technical articles (like you mentioned on file systems) no longer appear on ArsTechnica.com
