So the new Android Market is rolling out and I like the change.
I looks Clean and Clear, simple to use and utilizes the screen real estate much better
What do you think about the new look?

 

 

So I was working on my XOOM and just got a notice pop up that there is an update waiting for install….
Hit the restart and install button and 1 minute later I’m on 3.2.

Don’t know if it helped much for an issue I’ve had with Exchange (Exchange 2003 is bad, doesn’t work fine on my OX lion as well) but overall seems to be working perfectly fine.

Motorola Xoom – New Toy

So I just got a new Motorola Xoom (Well used I’m not that rich…) after giving the iPad to my wife.
Overall i’m quite happy (didn’t have too much time to play with it)
So expect some new posts about recommended apps

The Stig Facts

This application thought me a lot about android development and this application will be the base for the coming guides that include Android Development, Layout, Some Design (as mine is not amazing), Database! and more

Now back to the application
The Stig is the Chuck Norris of the auto world
Just something about “The Stig”
The Stig is a character in the British motoring television show Top Gear. The character plays on the anonymity of racing drivers’ full-face helmets, with the running joke that nobody knows who, or indeed what, is inside the character’s racing suit.

Taken from SD shamelessly 🙂
Seems like a decent tablet, I would get one for the price if I didn’t have the Nook Color and an iPad…
