Motorola Xoom for Gamers


Watch out, iPad. Motorola recently released its own ilk of tablet in the form of the Xoom. Running Android 3.0 (Honeycomb,) it features a 10.1" screen in 16:9 widescreen, is 4G compatible, has a NVIDIA Tegra dual core, front and back cams and an HDMI out. With an included gyroscope, strong graphics engine and hardware accelerations, the company is surely planning to push its gaming capability.

TaoBao Lists Stolen iTunes Accounts


We wouldn't even begin to know what category it was listed under but apparently about 50,000 supposedly hacked iTunes accounts were put on Taobao, China's largest online auction site. For a mere 200 yuan ($30,) a buyer could have purchased up to $200 worth of iTunes products. A reporter from the Global Times sent $5.00 via online payment and was then given an iTunes username and password. The GT reported that they finally removed the hacked iTunes accounts late last week and is considering adding them to a banned product list.

Pioneer Adds Pandora to In Dash Devices


At last week's CES 2011, Pioneer announced that it is integrating social media to cars. Nine models of in-dash products will provide Pandora streaming through a connected iPhone. Aha Radio will provide interactive and personalized radio. Look for 2 CD players, 3 audio/video devices like the AVH-P3300BT shown here, 2 DMPs and 2 GPS systems to have the ability at prices starting at $150.00.

Each will also have app access to Facebook and Twitter as well as YouTube. While Pioneer sees it as a way of connecting in your vehicle, we think it may turn out to be another source of accidents when drivers do something other than simply watching the road.
