First major iPad competitor, Motorola Xoom gets reviewed

Android Central reviews the Motorola Xoom, the first Android Honeycomb tablet

While we were busy getting our big iPad 2 review posted, Android Central was knocking it out the park with a complete Android 3.0 Honeycomb-powered Motorola Xoom review. It's bigger, it's Google-ier, and it certainly has more logos on the bezel, but what did our sibling site think about it?

Bon Jovi: Steve Jobs killed the music business

Proving once again that being a successful entertainer does not afford business insight any more than being a good businessman affords singing talent, Jon Bon Jovi has decided to hold Apple's Steve Jobs personally responsible for killing the music business:

Kids today have missed the whole experience of putting the headphones on, turning it up to 10, holding the jacket, closing their eyes and getting lost in an album; and the beauty of taking your allowance money and making a decision based on the jacket, not knowing what the record sounded like, and looking at a couple of still pictures and imagining it. Having laid the groundwork for finger-pointing, the aging rocker launched his final insult:

iPad 2 installed in the dash of an F-150 [video]

Car audio systems have improved dramatically recently but you have to take a look at an iPad 2 that has been installed within the dashboard of an F-150. The clever guys from SoundMan Car Audio go way beyond a simple car mount. They strip out the centre console and rebuild it to fit the iPad 2 perfectly. This was all done on the day the iPad 2 launch which makes the whole thing even more impressive!

The iPad 2 is the perfect car audio and entertainment system, the way these guys have installed it, complete with charging, video out to rear screens and the perfect fit and finish has really got us thinking. Car manufacturers really need to stop doing customised LCD panel audio and sat-nav systems and just adopt the iPad 2. This should be an extra in any good car manufacturer’s price list! It makes so much sense and offers so much more.

Take a look at the video after the break, and then let us know what you think in the comments!

Jailbreak warnings -- should you worry?

It looks as if the popular Flipboard app for iPad has added a jailbreak warning in a recent update. Upon launching the app, users that are jailbroken see a pop up warning them of potential issues on a jailbroken device.

Is this anything to be concerned about? I'd highly doubt it. As far as I know, developers can implement a checker for do things like this but it isn't anything new. Skype has been. It's just the first time we've seen a large app practicing this. I vaguely remember getting a pop up warning about my iPhone being jailbroken over a year ago on some rogue app I downloaded.
