iOS version code-names

I think they use these unconventional names to help with their ironclad security practices. If someone hears about Apple's Kirkwood or Hoodoo, they won't have any idea what they are hearing about. If they followed a traditional convention then everyone would know what letter or category to look for. Apple FTW!

Not all taho, but ski resort/slopes for sure. I used to ski Durango Colorado every year... At the time the resort was called purgatory and all runs had heaven/hell/in between names. Sweet if you ask me!!! Much better than "ice cream sandwich"!!!

My ideas:
-- Dirty Sanchez
-- Muffintop
-- Cankles
-- Spitshine
-- Say, Vicar!
-- Glazed Donut
-- Grandma's Cookie
-- Golden Shower
-- Merkin
-- Cupertino Threeway
-- Pearl Necklace
-- Crimson Tide
-- The Hunt for Pink October
-- Man Chowder
Apple, call me!
