    Engadget features a teaser of the new Motorola ad for its forthcoming XOOM tablet which is due to air during the Super Bowl. The ad features the Earth with a pair of white Apple-like headphones attached to it, and compares 2011 to 1984, because we are all totally forced by Apple to buy all their products, and why are they just so darned good? It’s not fair, says Motorola, stamping its foot. Naughty bad Apple, dominating the world with its products. Why won’t it play nice and give other manufacturers such as, oh, I don’t know, Motorola maybe, a bit of a chance?â€It’s time for more choicesâ€, goes the ad, before highlighting some of the XOOM’s main selling points, such as a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1080p HD video playback, 3G upgradable to 4G, Android 3.0 Honeycomb, Adobe Flash, a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera. Then you get to see the “free†Earth, without those big, bad Apple headphones dominating it! The only thing is, the “free†Motorola Earth looks like a burning molten fireball with no signs of life on it at all. Worrying.

    But that's what beta releases are for! There are plenty of issues that pop up with beta releases of iOS as well. The testing period is to find such issues and squash them before the final release comes about. Any person that runs beta firmware should be aware that such risks are always part of the deal.

    I agree Dave, but lately this open source stuff makes me think about how privade are stuff can really be, even I don't do banking or nothing a long the lines still concern me but we have a lot of OS flavors and I believe on giving the try to all and find the one that fit me the best.
