A neat mobile app that lets you customize the rifles that appear In Ghost Recon:

I of course immediately did some stupid stuff like put a Remington Masterkey shotgun on the rail of an ACR and loaded it with every possible expensive accessory available.

It’s worth trying out if you want to kill some time.  You can grab the Gun Builder App in the Google Play store. It’s also available for the iTunes but I can’t find the link.

All your customizations are synced with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier if you have that game.

New Apple game called Ready Steady Bang:

Pretty simple game, you play against a cowboy in a duel.  Pretty cool that people are getting rich off these 99cent iDevice games.  

Rant:

I really don’t feel like I’m missing by only having a Motorola Xoom, which by the way still holds the spot of being the #1 best electronic device I’ve ever owned.  The hardware is incredible, and the software is made by google… so yea it’s amazing too.  

I’ll probably never buy an Apple product again.  Not because of the quality (it’s obviously top notch), but because of the restrictions (both software and hardware) on all of their devices.   Yea you can get relatively cheap 3rd party cables and software, and even jailbreak the phones… but why should I have to pay or do some work to make the device function as it rightfully should?

This guy showed up today:

I threw my G21 in the mix to keep the post gun related. I took the picture using the rear camera on the xoom.  I resized it though before I uploaded it here because it was about 1MB.

My first impression of the xoom is that Android Honeycomb is VERY slick.  There are a few minor quirks that i’m sure will be ironed out in a software update, but overall it displays webpages and functions basically the same as my desktop computer does.

The wordpress admin screen post typing area is sized too big, so I lose track of words typed on the far right side, so I probably won’t try blogging off of it again until that gets fixed… plus it’s always more awkward using a touch screen if you have a full size computer with a keyboard handy anyway.

My main use for this will probably be checking and replying to emails on the go, and scouring the internet for new blog posts… tasks which I believe it will perform quite well.

If you want a xoom, you can see more info and buy one – HERE

Any of you guys have a xoom or any other Android Honeycomb tablet?  Any must have apps I should get?
