    Time for a dumb question... what does OTG stand for? I'm normally pretty good at figuring out TLA's but not this one.

    Hey Guys,

    I'm really looking forward to this!!! I travel a hell of a lot and I always miss my servers ... I don't think downloading torrents at my customer will make my customer happy ... so this xoom that I have looks awesome ... root my xoom, install ubuntu, install torrent client, webserver,...

    Only thing is ... did somebody tried connecting multiple devices via a powered usb hub?

    And ... did somebody trie to connect multiple devices via a powered usb hub on ubuntu on the xoom??? or do I need to be the first

So, I went in search. The ones for sale on Amazon seemed sketchy, so I headed to eBay. I quickly discovered that most of the people selling them are in China, so delivery can take a few weeks at least. Well, NOW I know why the OP made his own.

    Not only that, but I also just ordered the Verizon Folio/Keyboard case and realized that in order to use an OTG cable with a mouse while it's in the case, I'm probably going to need the microUSB tip to be at a right-angle.... which means I am going to build my own OTG cable afterall.

    So I guess what I'm saying is "LOL" and "Thanks, OP!" hehe
    I got my motorola brand otg from amazon with a 2 day turn around free shipping. Prior to that I got another which was a direct micro to usb adaptor and it works fine it was like 80 cents with free shipping lol. Only reason I got the moto otg was because it didnt flex and I felt with PS3 controller or wifi mouse plugged into it, it was putting pressure on the port in a weird way.
