Humor The German city of Hamburg will soon be getting one of the biggest Apple Stores in the world. Construction isn't complete yet, and a group of people calling themselves the '.WAV Collective' decided it was time for a practical joke. Posing as construction workers, they planted an interesting logo on the store's facade. In broad daylight. And they videotaped it.

If you have really much better product, you can troll competition as you wish, but this is not the case.
Motorola did remake of 1984. Turned out their "revolutionary xoom tablet" is a piece of crap, that did not even capable of advertised features.

SDCards are unsupported and hardware supported via USB is limited - that doesn't include the fact that Android vendors have a habit of dropping all support in 6 months by failing to provide updates (both feature and security) for devices older than 6months. The best example of this was a leaked memo between Samsung and a US carrier where Samsung stated that they were not going to provide software updates in favour of forcing hardware updates on end users. Yes, when you buy an Android, those are the kinds of assholes you're to have to deal with - shell out money for a device only to be left high and dry a few months later. Congratulations, you've just purchased a light weight door stop with the security of swiss cheese thanks to zero updates being provided.

SD, Flash, and 4G. I believe Flash has since been added, but I haven't heard anything about the SD slot being activated or the 4G surgery being rolled out.

Sure enough, this has its own section: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorola_Xoom#Features_announced_but_n...

But the text "4G" or "LTE" doesn't even appear anywhere in that article. That's the kind of pass Android devices get all the time. iPhone screen cracks if you throw it at a wall - Scandal! Xoom doesn't do what the manufacturer says it does - whatever.

Proof of the absurd hardware upgrade promise:
