      It specifically states in the article that Honeycomb is not vulnerable to these types of attacks.

      So maybe Jobs ain't such a jerk afterall.
      A little control can be a GOOD thing.

      That article was already a couple of days old, and google has since taken care of the threats.

      Yes, it does:

      "The latest version of the Android operating system, known as Gingerbread, is not vulnerable to the exploits DroidDream uses."

      There are also the exploits that someone used to get past the Apple controllers that aren't mentioned in the article, but really all they are saying is smart phones and tablets are computers, so people will write malware for them, so beware.

      Android or iOS, people need to take a second to think about the free or paid apps they're about to install, like they would for any other method of downloading and installing software they might use.

      Have fun,

      Sadly there are some jerks out there who find it funny to infect others. Thats why I appreciate Apple's walled garden.

      Spent several hours last weekend cleansing my daughters pc, which McAfee assured me was fine. Complete waste of my time and energy.
      In this day and age it shouldn't be necessary.

      Freedom is just another word for anarchy......

      That is not "specifically" mentioning honeycomb. While we can infer it, I wouldn't have worded it as specifically mentioning it. :)

      A Golden cage for a Golden Apple?:p

      I'm all for it too btw.

      Although some say that the opening for the virus has been taken care of... Others would say: If there was an opening there might be more...

      Xoom display has issues

      Check out a review in Macworld of the new Xoom. Nice tablet in many ways, but has display issues that must be rectified if it can live up to its hype. Kindle said ipad is highly reflective in daylight. The review said ipad is like paper compared to Xoom. Also colors are not accurate for photography. Could be software issues or rendering. FWIW

      Xoom is still waiting for announced features that have yet to be delivered including Flash, SD card that works, 4G is not here yet ... potential but has introductory issues.

      iPad2 is really ready for the competition. It is real and it works, HP, Blackberry are still vaporware.

      The new thinness, lightweight are critical, it takes two hands to handle Xoom ... so says the review.
