The folks at Google created a version of their mobile operating system Android titled Honeycomb and numbered version 3.0. This operating system began its life in the wild on the Motorola XOOM, a 10.1-inch tablet that by the end of the year would be replaced by the XYBOARD, a tablet which physically in weight and thickness to the iPad 2 - the dominant force in the tablet space throughout the vast majority of this past year.

We woke up, and there it was, a big hole in the wall where the monitor should be - avast! Said we, pirates on the loose! Therefor we had to take action. This is not a choose your own adventure but it DOES have one happy ending - continue on, crime stoppers!
