Wi-Fi Motorola XOOM Android 4.1.2 Soak Test Rolling Out, Here's How To Get It Now

Well, that was fast. Android 4.1.2 was just released to AOSP last week, and Motorola has already started pushing the Wi-Fi XOOM's update out to soak testers. This isn't a huge jump in terms of functionality, and the incremental update will bump the XOOM from build JRO03H (4.1.1) to JZO54K (4.1.2).

Of course, those who aren't soak testers are probably wondering how they can get this update now. The beauty of Google-supported hardware like the Wi-FI XOOM (which is, for all intents and purposes a Nexus device), is that Big G makes updates likes this one available almost immediately.

Modaco's Flash Downloader Does What Adobe Won't - Makes Side-Loading Flash Player A Snap

Update: Google has removed Modaco's app from the Play Store. Boo, hiss.

So Adobe's Flash for Android has gone the way of the dodo, and it can no longer be  downloaded from Google Play. Many users have already made sure to keep a backup of the APK handy for the odd occasion when a video is still only available in Flash form (I'm looking at you, Zero Punctuation). But what id you lose your device, or accidentally wipe your SD card, or forget how Dropbox works?

Samsung Starts Production Of New High-Speed Embedded Flash Storage

One complaint many people have had (particularly with Asus tablets) is that the performance of the embedded storage is just plain bad. So I ran some storage benchmarks (2 apps, 13 metrics) on 11 different devices and compiled the results. In sum: while adequate, most devices aren't exactly speedy in the storage speed department.
