The Daily Slash: December 20 2010

Be amazed as Philip Berne lays down a connection between Tron and FB in an article called Facebook on the Job, while Don Reisinger delivers a bit of knowledge on home socialization in an article called Netflix: The Savior of Living Room Entertainment? Next, take a peek at Motorola talking smack about iPad and Galaxy Tab. After that, marvel as the Notion Ink Adam floodgates open! Take a video look at the Eden UI, then take a walk through another video of Notion Ink Adam as driven by Notion Ink CEO Rohan Shravan. Have a glance at a review of the Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type and a Griffin Elan Passport Galaxy Tab Case, see Android's security team proclaim “Openness,” not “Rooting”, and finally take a peek at a rumor (and subsequent official comment) about Nokia Windows Phone 7 phones in 2011. All this and MORE on The Daily Slash!
