Mine just did the same thing...except I wasn't streaming anything---I was in an RPN
calculator. It froze up (date/time not even updating), then on a reboot, froze at the
Android screen. After a LONG time, tried again, and now it freezes at "acer"....

After going through multiple wrong numbers provided by Acer as the "right" number
to call, I finally got passed to the chat support. Hardware issue, out of warranty (as
of the 3rd) $200 + tax + shipping. That's 3 A500s failing right after the warranty
is expired. Coincidence? Sure...right...uh huh, yeah, I believe that.... (No I don't)

This will most definitely be my last Acer ANYTHING. I lost all kinds of information
(a lot of which is medical---it's backed up on my computer, but my tablet was the
primary, so I didn't exactly lose it...just lost the best method of using it). Now I'm
back to having to remember stuff with memory that's been damaged by my first
cancer.... I am NOT happy right now at all.

Edit: Correction to my .signature: running Mac OS X Lion now. :-)
