Comments on: Motorola Xoom vs iPad: Which one Lost? Geek Culture & Tech Expert: How Can I Help You Today? Wed, 25 Nov 2015 01:28:28 +0000 hourly 1 By: ComputerDoc Wed, 26 Oct 2011 04:31:00 +0000 I believe Google may have bought Motorola Mobility phones but I was assuming that they bought the XOOM tech too. 

By: ComputerDoc Wed, 26 Oct 2011 04:27:00 +0000 So with that reasoning Jim. Apple is a failure. AT one time its market was less than 10% of the computer market. IBM and compatibles with DOS and WINDOWS sold like hotcakes. 

Did Apple rebound or am I dreaming? Any time you write off something you stand a chance of being SOOO WRONG . 

Bill Gates was pretty smart but once he said “who would ever need more than 256 k of ram anyway?”

Well? (:-)

By: Computerdoc Wed, 26 Oct 2011 04:21:00 +0000 Totally wrong …. you need to mod them to make them into a speed demon of beauty and use. Do some research on what you can do with a NookColor and see.

By: ComputerDoc Wed, 26 Oct 2011 04:19:00 +0000 I think you may have missed a point here Chris.

The people who buy NookColor, Viewsonic, or even Xoom are buying it for two reasons:
1- IT is much cheaper.
2-You can make them every bit as good as an iPad by modding them.
3-If you don’t like working and studying and figuring out how to mod something then waste the money on an iPad. Of course to those who have lots of money and don’t mind being trapped with no flash in an iPad with limitations then it not be a waste.

However to we who don’t mind saving money, working, studying, researching and then finally modding their tablet, it is a joy beyond belief! And on top of that you could buy two more NookColors and mess with them too instead of buying one iPad. 

To some the thrill of saving oodles of dollars and “creating” a new tablet from an “old” is worth much more than the thrill of spending more money and being limited.

No prejudice. Just a difference in creative bent.

Good luck

Just thought I add that.

Obviously, McDonalds is the best restaurant and WalMart offers the best shopping experience, too.  The market has spoken.

Actually, two people in my office own Xooms–and we’re a Mac software developer.  My boss got his Xoom so he could actually do some Javascript development on a long flight.  One of our salespeople bought one so she could watch Flash videos.  They’re both really happy with their purchase.
