    Go grocery shopping and have enough food and water within reach for 72 hours because you are going to want to tinker without taking any breaks! Seriously...its that addictive.

    Oh...make sure you are updated to Honeycomb 3.1 (which is coming out of the box I hear but check anyway) and install the newest version of Flash from the market, get yourself a file manager from the market and you are good to go. Although I'm sure others will have more suggestions.

    Happy birthday by the way! Congrats on the new tablet.

    To get an early start you should open a gmail account (if you haven't already) - you'll be prompted to enter your account information during the set-up process


    BTW - Congrats and Welcome

    I use ES File Manager but there are many available that you can search on the Market website (http://market.android.com) before you get the Xoom. Also recommend getting the Amazon Appstore and the AmazonMP3 app. They give a paid-for-app out for free and the MP3 site also gives a free or $.69 (relevant artists) song of the day along with a "mp3 album" deal of the day for sometimes half-price. The free Amazon app of the day is usually posted here in the Apps forum but the mp3 ones not so much

    Yeah you wont put it down man, seriously. After your setup with those other suggestions I would purchase TV show stream. Great app with hundreds of old and current shows, with current seasons.
    Save up a little more a get you the ZooGue case as well.

    Have fun man, I know you will.

    Welcome! I'm definately getting the otterbox and I will do quite a lengthy review of it when I get it. Maybe it'll help in your decision. It "should" be out soon
