    I would like to think the next three are planned:
    OS 2.0: Vindicator
    OS 2.1: Corroborator
    OS 2.2: Avenger

    But keeping with the PlayBook idea, I think 2.0 should be called Hail Mary Pass

    I'm liking previous posters idea of QPhone. It will make the general public ask "Why Q" And if they bother to find out....Oh it's because it has the unbeatable multitasking (better than iOS) operating system. ..... free advertising kinda. Remember: Be Bold!

    Oh...I'm sorry. Gefilte Fish isn't good enough for you?
    Kreplach, Schav (sorrel soup), Borscht, kiska, hamentashen..... kvell could summarize it.

    I'm not really into this Cutsy name business. But what the heck, why not use gem names?

    At this point the OS is a tad more polish but I'm sure there's still more that can be done for future releases so probably a mid-grade semi-precious, name would suffice.

    I say:
    Amethyst, Opal, or Topaz

    Isn't that the kids game with marbles and cocktail sticks?

    Or is that Ker-Plunk?

    Matzo Ball Soup FTW! Made me laugh out loud.

    They could also use Canadian Icons as names:

    Back Bacon (2.0)

    Molson (2.1)

    Rush (2.112)

    "Marmite Surprise" - coz you either love it or hate it!

    The Marmite reference might not travel beyond the UK. Apologies if you're scratching your heads.
    I've got to try Marmite... heard/seen so much reactions... just never came across it.

    Don't do it! Think of the children, erm, your taste buds!

    Think brown/black slime with a unique taste... sort of meaty/yeasty. My wife loves it on toast, I would rather chew my own finger off than eat it again!

    There is no middle ground with Marmite, nobody in the history of the world ever said "hmmm, not sure if I like that or not". Definitely has a love it or hate it taste.

    Yeah! So if it's sitting around with an iPad that gets all hotsy-totsy with it, it can say, "So what am I, Chopped Liver?"

    Well, yes, you don't want to confuse your suggestion with all the serious entries on this thread.

    Love your idea, though. A little long, but it definately has a ring to it.

    Have you all called Thorsten yet with your ideas? I have. Okay...no, I haven't, but I'm sure he'll call me. Well, no, he doesn't actually know I exist, but, if he ever looks at this board, I am sure he will be overcome with my stunning beauty and will want to hear all of my suggestions....
