Posting from a WiFi-only Moto Xoom & Apple Bluetooth Keyboard

I’m using a WiFi-only Moto Xoom running Android OS 3.1 and an Apple Wireless Keyboard (Bluetooth) with the WordPress for Android app. Unfortunately, the Xoom and the Apple Wireless Keyboard looses connectivity every minute or so. It seems to auto-restore the connection after 15 to 30 seconds. But, this made typing even this short piece of text difficult.

8 Apps Booted off my Droid

Android 1.0 design decisions continue to plague my Android experience. I booted 8 apps off of my Droid today to get back some much needed system storage space. Of the 8 apps booted off only Firefox allowed itself to be moved to SD flash storage. However, it is so slow on the Droid, I decided to uninstall it. Two of the apps that would not install to an SD were actually small and did not impact the storage situation much. The 7 apps that do not relocate to an SD card and got booted off are:

CNBC 0.344
Google Goggles 3.38
Google Reader 2.29
INRIX Traffic 2.93
PdaNet 0.276
State Farm Pocket Agent 3.73
The Weather Channel 2.52

A total of 15.47MB of app storage space was recovered by uninstalling these apps.
