    tips and tricks for a new xoom owner

    Hello everyone, I am a new Xoom owner. I just picked mine up over the weekend. It is 3G verizon and a 3.2 honeycombe os.
    I have had experiense with the Ipads (1 & 2) but wanted something for myself that was more open. Well I got it and for the most part I like the xoom but something tells me that I am doing something wrong. I wanted to get some tips and tricks from more experinsed people.
    Tips
    What are the best managment apps I should start out with?
    Why dose google talk "studder" when I talk. It cuts in and out?
    Why don't some apps don't work? like Amazon, netflix, skype?

    Tricks
    Is there a way to reset this thing? I have had it lock up on me twice and just had to wait it out because I didn't want to pull the battery.
    My power cord keeps falling out is that something cheesey that motorola did or is my bad?

    Thanks for the help in advance, anything else you could bring to the table would be helpful.

    Welcome to the forum. Netflix, Amazon and Skype all work (no video for Skype yet however) If you are getting stuttering with gTalk its probably a conection speed issue. Oh and the charger plug is a pain, but it sorta makes up for it by charging FAST.

    If your tab locks up just hold up volume and hold the power button for a hard reset without factory reset.

    Check out Tablet keyboard or my fav Thumbs keyboard

    In stock browser type about:debug then go to setting, debug, UIString and change to desktop to get most sites full version rather than mobile version.

    Suggest you try a new browser as well. Try dolphin or opera mobile.

    Does this need to be done every time I open the browser?
